He uses 2 tools for his analysis: the 40 week moving average and the trend line. In The Score, he can see the 40 week average still rising, but now the price has fallen below it and the trend line has broken. This is where the stock started to back off. Now the stock has developed a downtrend and until it breaks that downtrend line the stock will not stop falling. He thinks the support is around the 2014 trading range. So he believes that we are not far from it and buyers could probably come in. The stock is a little bit oversold. It is in a downtrend right now and you should buy stock when it is in a uptrend.

At the moment they are not profitable. Forecast by 3 analysts for Aug/2016 is that they will lose $.04. This is more about the gold rush to acquire viewers. The crack in the armour generally is that people had previously said sports was immune from the slim fast diet plan that was going on, as far as cord cutting, for people that had typically subscribed to cable TV. To their benefit they offer an opportunity where you can use your laptop or app, to keep on top of what is going on with your favourite team. Within the last 4 months they have acquired a fantasy sports crew, and hope to bring in some of their existing 10 million subscribers into the fantasy sports side. This gives access to their fantasy sports side much less expensively, and the ability of cross-selling their existing customer base. The fantasy offers a pretty good opportunity for them.

Owned this in the past, but started seeing it breaking down in his technical process. From a business standpoint he thinks everything is going along nicely. It is more a fundamental market issue then a fundamental business issue. They are just getting into the electronics gaming where people watch video games as a sport, which is becoming a huge market. Over the next year or 2, he thinks that business will be bigger and the company will probably eventually end up selling it. They did this with their television network and will probably do it with this one.

He used to own Score Media. He sold because it did not meet his criteria. They are burning through a lot of cash. They have a dynamic management team that has succeeded in the past. This is a much more speculative stock.

To him this is the premier sports app in North America. Has 10 million users compared to Sprylogics (SPY-X) with only 200,00 or 300,000. Loves the management team. Expects this is going to do well long-term.

(A Top Pick June 20/14. Up 94.29%.) Still likes this. Growth has been better than he had expected. Some of the things they are doing, like getting into daily fantasy sports and Esports, is going to continue to grow sales. They have quite a war chest of cash now, and wouldn’t be surprised to see them make an acquisition. At some point he could see them launching in Europe, which would be pretty interesting. They have a very valuable user base.

If you are prepared to tuck it away over the next year or 2, he thinks it is going to continue higher. Have obviously done a great job in sports apps, but now are getting into the high video gaming business, which is a huge market. Also, the fantasy sports market is really taking off in the US and globally. This always seems to trade with fairly significant valuations, but management has always executed very well. Management has recently been buying stock.

The key here is using mobile apps in order to get at sports scores. Recently acquired a fantasy game company that allows you to create NHL and NFL games. Separate freestanding companies who have just the fantasy game portion, are trading at extremely high valuations. Thinks there is an opportunity for this company to take their 10 million subscribers, and have them access and use the fantasy part, which will then provide more opportunities for advertising and revenue growth. Management has done a good job historically. Think you will be happy with what will come.

Chart shows a fair amount of volatility, but it is OK volatility. The basics are there. You are getting your stepladder higher highs and higher lows. Feels the last run it had over the past 6 weeks has been a little bit steeper than usual, so it might be due for a pullback. Your lows and highs are higher and the overall trend is in great shape. If you have a perspective that is a little bit longer than a week, you are probably going to do okay on this.

He knows it will multiply in price and then they will sell it because that is what they do. They will add more users and find a way to monetize them.

Continues to execute really well. Have ramped their users from a couple of million a year or so ago, to over 10 million now. Have gone into some new areas, so are moving into fantasy gaming. They are also moving into the e-video gaming stuff, so have a number of different areas they are working on. The one knock is that the valuation is starting to get really expensive and they need to grow into that. Now that they have 10 million users, they are hopefully going to start to really see advertising revenue ramp up. By late 2016-early 2017, they’ll actually be profitable.

They had $16 Million on the balance sheet but just raised equity and he thinks this is for an acquisition. In the mean time you have massive growth in the app. It is getting to that kind of scale where you are going to see big increases in their advertizing revenue. Ultimately, someone like FB-Q would take them out.
