This has major support at around $.50. The thing about penny stocks is that there are less people trading them. It is really retail investors that are trading them, which means that it is going to be thrown around a lot more. It is harder to predict technical trends. This stock seems to have a habit of bouncing off the price of $.50, and at this time, it is probably worth a trade.

Recent results have been a bit mixed, a little bit lumpy quarter to quarter. Thinks management is still figuring out how to deal with investor relations, guiding the street, etc. They are very much in the right space. Participating in distribution and the technology that helps deliver over the top video, (TV channels over the Internet). This is not an expensive stock, and it has a lot of cash on their balance sheet. Very large insider ownership, which he likes. 3-4 years from now, the stock is going to be a lot higher or somebody is going to have acquired it. Disney (DIS-N) recently acquired a 33% of BAMtech, a streaming service in technology.

Has a lot of cash on its balance sheet, and is trading at a reasonable valuation. Recently made a small acquisition. Very well capitalized and good growth opportunities. Potentially a takeover target some day.

A problem he has with any of these spaces is how chaotic it is and are there disruptors that can come up behind it and easily disintermediate you from your clients.

This has had a good run. Has a technology that allows video on demand to work on the Internet. Have some very impressive clients. They lost NHL to major league baseball, which has its own in-house version. There have been a lot of acquisitions in the space. All the big players like Disney (DIS-N) who have these problems with cord cutting, want to have that technology in-house. There is a good shot these guys may get bought out. Have a massive cash position, something like $60 million.

Compression technology. They compress video and put it into the data format you need for watching on a mobile device. Was doing fairly well about a year ago and dealing with a lot of sports leagues in North America, outside of major-league baseball. NHL was one of their marquee clients, but switched all their merchandising and video over to Maj. league baseball which made a pretty big knock on the company stock. Have a lot of cash on the balance sheet and are continuing to grow. Getting into soccer now. Super cheap. You can watch this and probably get it at an attractive price.

This takes different video feeds, compresses it and puts it into all different formats so that you can watch it on an iPad, Blackberry, etc. Their specialty in the past has been the NHL and some of the sports leagues. They also work with TV manufacturers and distributors. Recently lost their NHL contract which created a huge hit in the stock price. Thinks they will still grow and have nice numbers going forward. The stock price is probably going to take a little while until people have a real sense of where the business is going. Long-term this is going to be a business that continues to grow as more people are watching TV on mobile devices. So far they are only in North America and have no content in Europe. That and Asia would be a huge expansion.

What happened to the stock is what happens in a bad market when you have a surprise announcement. He likes to look at technical indicators and quite often they lead the news. With this company, that wasn’t it at all. If anything the charts were actually turning up and improving. The news of losing the NHL contract came out and the stock went down. The outlook is fairly strong. NHL represented about 10% of their revenue and 25% of their EBITDA. However, they are still negotiating with the NHL in ways they can continue to work forward. Also, growing in a number of other areas. This has been penalized a little too much.

Volatility was partly because the contract with the NHL had moved over to the baseball league. The baseball guys have a pretty good method of keeping on top of all the digital rights for their own crew of baseball players, and the hockey players are asking for this on a totally integrated basis. He still thinks the “over-the-top” trend continues. This company will continue to benefit as people will want to continue to track their team. Earnings estimates have been shaved from $.05 to $.03 over the last short period because of the loss of the contract. A good opportunity to get the stock on weakness.

This is considered as a good growth stock. They take the video from a lot of the sports leagues such as the NHL. They take all the data from the games, compress it and then send it into different formats so that we can watch it on our mobile devices. There is a lot of growth in this area, not only from sports, but from the TV Everywhere. Most cable companies are now rolling out some sort of TV Anywhere package. At this point the company is a North American story, but he thinks it will grow into a global one as they discover and work with more broadcasters. Recently acquired DivX, which adds to their platform. Feels they have a very strong future ahead of them. Wouldn’t be surprised if they got acquired at some time.

The current ranking is in the bottom 3rd of his database, in part because the PE multiple is based on earnings estimates for 2015 of 30X earnings, but if it turns out the company is successful in meeting analyst forecasts for 2016, the PE drops down to 12X against 27% earnings growth giving a PE to growth multiple of about 0.5. Anything below 1 is viewed as attractive. ROE is attractive at 17%. They provide college basketball and football games, and he thinks there is pretty good growth opportunity for them. Pretty good opportunity over the coming year.

An American company listed on Toronto. They did a reverse takeover of a company in a similar space. Mostly US$ revenue. Also, an arrangement with Rogers. Loves the company.

An American company listed on Toronto. They did a reverse takeover of a company in a similar space. Mostly US$ revenue. Also, an arrangement with Rogers. Loves the company.

They are the back end for video streaming services. The big story has been hockey streaming with Rogers. They recently reported and it was a disappointment on the Rogers side. He is out of the stock now. He likes to see continued earnings momentum.

University and college basketball games in the US primarily. Thinks it will continue to do well. It pulled back but now it is moving back to recent highs. Thinks there is an opportunity for them to do better. He is following it and will possibly establish a position.

He is a little shy of penny stocks because they don’t chart as well. However, this one does show an uptrend. If it makes new highs, make sure the volume increases. What you don’t want is a breakout with new highs on low volume. Also, watch the old highs and watch for selling at that point.

Likes a lot. Thinks they are going to continue to gain share in sports, online streaming, and providing backbone for those services. The new NHL apps that they are powering are fantastic. The reason it is not a Netflix is that the demand for sports content is not there. Thinks the stock is going a lot higher. Growing at about 30% on the revenue line, and which might accelerate over the next year.

Was a top pick and is a top holding right now. He is not selling any time soon, based on NHL deal with Rogers. Don’t worry about the volatility, just watch the quarterly results. It could be a takeout candidate in the next few years. They have the market locked up and have a recurring revenue stream.

They help with watching different sports online and have a deal with Rogers (RCI.B-T). Had always thought the stock was fairly expensive.

Has a technology that allows them to compress and stream different feeds through their system. Their biggest client is the NHL which films their games. If you go to the NHL website to watch the 2 minute highlights of the night before, that is this company’s technology. It also allows them to send it out to all different devices. If you use an Apple, Blackberry or an iPad, that all has to be compressed and modulated for that specific device. This is what this company does. Going forward, there is going to be so much more viewership on mobile devices. Thinks this will continue to grow and do well. Sold his holdings at about $1.10 and is waiting to see what happens with their earnings over the next couple of quarters. If he sees acceleration in earnings again, that’s when he will probably move back in. Major league baseball is one of the only major sports that doesn’t use this company’s technology.

Stock has moved up significantly. Streaming of sports, especially basketball, particularly for universities. Has a very strong following. Earnings are forecast to be $.02 in 2014, which is a 50X earnings estimate. Earnings are expected to be $.05 in 2015 giving a more reasonable PE of 20X. Expect you will see the growth continue. Have some great technology and great relationships with some extremely large US sports franchises.
