As the growth slowed in the adoption of the app, the stock declined. However, the company still has plenty of cash and they are getting a big tax refund. Thinks they are going to be “break even” in the 3rd quarter this year. They’ve taken their user base of about 11 million people or so, and are starting to break into some really larger advertising accounts. Revenue growth has been quite nice, and he sees that continuing. They also have a good relation with Facebook (FB-Q) where they get a lot of traffic. Sees more upside than downside.

The CEO, who owns a significant amount of stock, has been purchasing even more recently. The end of tax loss selling plus insider buying and a cheap stock. You can’t find fast-growing app or software stocks that are trading at 1.5X sales. There is a significant amount of long term upside in this company. (Analysts’ price target is $0.55.)

It is too small cap for him, but it scores in the bottom 10 present on valuation and momentum. Negative ROE, and no price to earnings. Debt is not troubling, but they are not cash flowing. You want to see them making money.

This is an app run by a superb management team which has built and sold a couple of businesses. They own a lot of stock. Having a really hard time monetizing their traffic. Sports, sports betting and traffic is growing, it’s just the monetization that is tough for them. He thinks they will figure it out, but it is going to take time, so you have to be patient.

Still trying to grow the business, but are burning a lot of cash in the process. Has a very high respect for management, but a pure data company like this is a tough business to try and grow. The burn rate hasn’t diminished that much.

He has never been a fan because of no revenue nor earnings. It is a highly competitive market. He would not invest in it. It is hard to value it when there is no earnings.

(A Top Pick March 25/15. Down 56.82%.) This has the 2nd leading sports app in North America, next to ESPN. They got caught up in the daily fantasy business, using their app users as a platform. Had believed business was going to do very well. Still likes it a lot. They can use the platform of app users for other products.

This has gone through some business transformations over the last couple of years. It is now basically mobile apps and provides live scores to fans. What got the stock going about a year ago was fantasy sports, which was all the rage. Recently there were some legal issues in the US as to whether it is gambling or not, and will take a little while to sort out, and why the stock checked back. However, they still have the original business providing sport updates to fans, essentially an advertising business. They also are into E-Sports where people get together and have tournaments on video games etc. A solid business. If you are going to own this, you should have a longer-term point of view.

Just bought some last week. Likes the company and really likes the management team. Have big plans in all their areas whether it is E sports or fantasy gaming, where they can cross sell incrementally into these new platforms. Growth has slowed, but advertising has actually picked up as they have gotten more and more scale. Now they are going to be able to cross sell the fantasy sports and E sports to their users of the Score Sports app, which is roughly 11 million people. Still thinks there is tremendous upside. Thinks there will be upside in the next 6 weeks and then could go back to $.45-$.50, but longer-term, north of $1, is very reachable.

(Market Call Minute.) Took this out of his portfolio. Has been disappointed about what is going on. A very expensive stock with only $3 million in revenues per quarter and $85 million market cap.

This stock is not doing well at all. He would have liked to have seen them get a lot of eyes on their app. Looking at the number of active users; it hasn’t done much in the last 6-7 months. They don’t have the same growth trajectory that they had 6 months ago. They need to execute and show that they can get there and make money off the initiatives that they have had.

It did quite well and then sold off with the stock market. It is one of the best management teams you will find in the micro cap area. They have a lot of brand recognition. They have millions of users, but have not quite monetized their user base. He thinks they get bought at some point. The CEO is buying the stock.

(Top Pick Oct 17/14, Up 17.14%) The app growth is slow. They are focusing on additional product lines. They are just in the process of launching for this year’s NFL season. The app is growing but at a much slower pace. He bought more this morning. They might get into sports gambling.
