They are still sitting on a lot of cash. They are still in a patent litigation. It has not done a whole lot and last year it finally went up. Legal fees were a big drag on this company and they have reduced this. It is not a bad name but it is not that great.

Lost 6 million dollars this past quarter, but the earn out is positive. Looks bad, because they had to pay $10M. The CEO comes from OpenText, and they are looking to make acquisitions. A conservative management team. In court with Apple, and they won. They could win up to $110M. The decision will come out in January. (Analysts’ price target is $4.84)

They won a lawsuit against Apple for $145 for the first judgement, then won only $10 for the second judgement, then the judge told them to work it out. They have the lumpiest revenues he's ever seen. They keep doing patent deals, like one this week. Likes the CEO who did lots of takeovers when he ran Open Text. QTRH has no debt and has done a few takeovers. Not successful in creating recurring revenues, but he likes the dividend. Lots of upside here. A good settlement with Apple will really help.

(A Top Pick Jan 16/18, Down 41%) They won a $145 million lawsuit against Apple, but the judge marked it down to $10 million minimum and ordered arbitration. This figure is huge for QTRH. The new CEO has done some takeovers in the past 18 months and wants to do more with $58 million cash. Has a clean balance sheet. Their big problem are their lumpy revenues and earnings. This now trades way below book value and offers tremendous upside. They're trying to get recurring revenues. This company will move in the right direction.

They won a big suit against AAPL-Q but they are appealing it. Legislation has made it hard for a company to be a patent troll now.

They have been getting so many licenses that it should help with revenues going forward. It pays a dividend that is pretty good at this level. They will be looking to do some takeovers that are accretive. It could quadruple, depending on the law suits they are dealing with, especially AAPL-Q. (Analysts’ price target is $2.08)
