CCUR earnings last week.

Some of our stocks are just stupid cheap—compared to their net cash on hand divided by their stock price.

Check this list:

CCUR 41%
SYNC 57%
CTIG 49%
PRSS 58%

CRNT, ATEC, AVID, DAEG and SYNC, can still be bought.

The model portfolio assumes $10,000 invested in each stock (unless we double-up–then it is $20,000), less $10 commission each way (TD Ameritrade rate).

http://finance.yahoo.com/news/avid-announces-financial-results-second-203852725.html

Revenues were $110 million down from $125 million last year. They made a Non-GAAP profit of $.05 per share versus a $.15 profit last year. Our valuation moved down a bit to $22.24 from $22.59 last quarter. They upped their 2015 guidance to $74-$80 million of adjusted EBITDA from $72-$78 million. Also, while the debt for the acquisition of Orad was on the balance sheet at June 30, the revenues and profits were not. You would think that AVID lost money and lowered their guidance by 50% with the way the market reacted.

No one liked them as the stock plummeted more than 50%. Revenues were $46.6 million ($50.2 million in constant currency) compared to $53.2 million last year. EBITDA was down 50% from $7.7 to $3.8 million. Our valuation came in at $2.54 compared to the previous $2.61. We are cutting ATEC to a HOLD until they can reverse the negative trends in revenue, gross margin and EBITDA.

After the reaction to the earnings we bought more and suggest doubling up here as the selling seems over done. This will bring our average Buy price down to $.93.

Not bad. They continue to slim down the business to its core. They are divesting their EZ print business now also. Revenues fell to $21.8 million from $29.1 million last year, but their loss from operations declined to $1.8 million from $4.4 million last year. Adjusted EBITDA was positive $.7 million versus negative $1.8 million last year. Cash fell to $46 million ($2.64 a share from $56 million due to working capital changes and the repurchase of $2.3 million worth of stock. Our valuation was $8.95 down a tad from $9.09 last quarter.

SYNC announced they are buying Zimbra.

From the press release: “Zimbra connects people and information with unified collaboration software that includes email, calendaring, file sharing, activity streams, social networks and more. With technology designed for social, mobile and the cloud, Zimbra gives individuals the flexibility to work from virtually anywhere, through nearly every computer, tablet and mobile device.

Zimbra’s software is trusted globally by service providers, governments and companies, with over 200,000 accessing Zimbra in the cloud managed by our worldwide network of service providers. With customers including NTT Communications, Comcast, Dell, Rackspace, Red Hat, Mozilla, H&R Block and Vodafone, a vibrant open source community and worldwide partner network, Zimbra is the third-largest collaboration provider in the world. Zimbra’s headquarters are in Frisco, Texas, with offices in London; Tokyo; Singapore and Pune, India.

The price is $17.3 million in cash, 3 million SYNC shares and .6 million warrants and up to $2 million in earn-outs. Not much financial information disclosed about Zimbra, but it looks like they have about $20 million in sales and $2 million in EBITDA. Overall we don’t think this will affect SYNC’s current valuation very much, but maybe it will help them start growing.

Q2, 2015 earnings were announced August 6, 2015.

http://finance.yahoo.com/news/dex-media-announces-second-quarter-110000263.html

Revenues were $387 million, down from $474 million last year and down from $406 million last quarter and adjusted EBITDA was $159 million up from $143 million last quarter and down from $176 million last year. Overall not a great quarter. For the year they are guiding to revenue of about $1.5 billion and $525 million of EBITDA. In their original projection for 2015 they were looking at revenue of $2.077 billion and EBITDA of $782 million. Clearly they are not making their projections. Net debt was $2.144 (their original projection was to end 2015 with $2.004 billion of debt—a goal they will likely make. Based on this performance we have lowered our valuation to $4.71 a share. DEXM is a HOLD

DEX announced a major restructuring on December 11, 2014. They expect to incur

$70-$100 million of expenses to achieve $150 million of ongoing expense savings with $110 million of that coming in 2015. They expect to begin deleveraging their balance sheet (meaning Net Debt to adjusted EBITDA ratio) in 2016. No question that’s what they need to do.

Closed up $.03 at $.37

No reason we see for the big drop last week. Other than the nervous market. We are adding more personally at this price.

DAEG announced Q4 2015 earnings (quarter ended April 30, 2015) on 7/28/2015. Revenues were $6.1 million down from $7.4 million last year but up from $5.7 million last quarter. They lost $.03 per share on a GAAP basis compared to income of $.01 last year. On a Non-GAAP basis they lost $65,000 versus a profit of $1,087,000 last year. Our valuation rose to $2.20 up from $1.83 last quarter on lower net debt ($6.4 million), higher sales and lower losses.

With the discontinuance of their eDiscovery business, Daegis is now a pure play enterprise software company and is trading at only 30% of our valuation. We are changing to a cautious.

They lost $.20 per share on a Non-GAAP basis compared to $.24 last year. Our valuation rose to $6.20 up from $6.10 last quarter on better margins. Overall, while margins and EBITDA (adjusted) improved it was pretty much a nothing quarter. Have to wait longer here as they eke out an existence and hopefully get this little boat moving in the right direction. HOLD

http://finance.yahoo.com/news/concurrent-reports-fourth-quarter-fiscal-200100937.html

Disappointing. Revenues fell to $13.8 million from $17.8 million last year and they lost $993,000 pre-tax compared to a profit of $2,032,000 last year. They blamed consolidation in the service provider sector for the sales decline and indicated it won’t get better in 2015. It is obvious that CCUR should not be a stand alone company. We think it is time to get this sold.

Our valuation plummeted to $11.49 from $16.38 last quarter. Cash per share fell to $2.80 , still over 50% of the market cap. We will keep a HOLD on CCUR until we see what the new CEO can do and they get revenue growth back. We continue to collect the 10% dividend.

Closed at $3.54 up $.24.

Wynnefield continued their selling puting a cap on ARI’s stock price. They now own 693,000 shares down from 992,000. They are now at 4.1%.

Q3 2015 were announced on June 11, 2015. Pretty good. Revenues were $10.3 million, up 26% from last year and they made $.02 a share compared to $.01 last year. Our valuation rose to $6.66 a share.

http://finance.yahoo.com/news/ari-network-services-inc-announces-200100623.html

In addition to the 1.5 million share offering Wynnefield Capital has been selling shares-about 250,000 from 3/31/2015 to 5/12/2015 at prices from $3.20 to $3.38. They still have 992,000 shares or 6.9% of ARI. Assuming they are getting out, this will keep pressure on the price for a while.

ARI announced on May 7, 2015 that they had priced a 1.53 million share offering for expected net proceeds of about $4.7 million which they will use to pay off the $1.75 of debt they incurred on their recent acquisition of TASCO and for future acquisitions.

They are doing a good job positioning the company to be acquired. Hopefully this will soon happen with a $5+ price like we got for XRS in September 2014.

UP 120%, HOLD, Still a large valuation gap here and the Company is executing well.

Revenues came in at $3.7 million versus $4.1 million last year. They lost $323,000 compared to a loss of $296,000 last year.

Our valuation fell a bit to $1.12 a share, down from $1.21 last quarter and $1.22 last year. We will continue to HOLD CTIG.

Commenting on the results, Fred Hanuschek, CTI Group’s CEO and President, stated, “Although our first half results were not as strong as we had hoped, we are encouraged by the number of opportunities that we are actively pursuing and believe these opportunities should lead to better second half results

Still way undervalued, but no light as to when or how this will ever be properly valued.

John Birbeck announced his departure in October 2014. He was one of the group trying to take CTIG private for $.40 a share. Birbeck will remain a Director of the company. He owns about 7% of CTIG (about 2.3 million shares).

They need to get an investment banker and sell the company. Probably get at least $.75 a share for it from someone.

Cheap Stocks, 8/14/2015 update

Finally an up week for us  +4.3 and we are now down 10.9% for the year. Meanwhile, the DOW was up .6% and the NASDAQ was up .1%. For the year the DOW is down 1.9% and NASDAQ is up 6.6%.

CTIG, PRSS, BLIN, MRVC and AVID earnings last week.

Some of our stocks are just stupid cheap—compared to their net cash on hand divided by their stock price.

Check this list:

CCUR 45%
SYNC 51%
CTIG 43%
PRSS 55%

ATEC, AVID, DAEG and SYNC, can still be bought.

Last week we went 7 stocks up, 5 down and 1 even. Since inception we are now 68 stocks up and 20 down for a 77.3% winning percentage (80% is our target win %).  Of our closed-out positions 60 have been winners and 13 have been losers for an 82% win percentage and a 35% average net gain per position.

The model portfolio assumes $10,000 invested in each stock (unless we double-up–then it is $20,000), less $10 commission each way (TD Ameritrade rate).

Wynnefield continued their selling outing a cap on ARI’s stock price. They now own 693,000 shares down from 992,000. They are now at 4.1%.

Q3 2015 were announced on June 11, 2015. Pretty good. Revenues were $10.3 million, up 26% from last year and they made $.02 a share compared to $.01 last year. Our valuation rose to $6.66 a share.

In addition to the 1.5 million share offering Wynnefield Capital has been selling shares-about 250,000 from 3/31/2015 to 5/12/2015 at prices from $3.20 to $3.38. They still have 992,000 shares or 6.9% of ARI. Assuming they are getting out, this will keep pressure on the price for a while.

ARI announced on May 7, 2015 that they had priced a 1.53 million share offering for expected net proceeds of about $4.7 million which they will use to pay off the $1.75 of debt they incurred on their recent acquisition of TASCO and for future acquisitions.

They are doing a good job positioning the company to be acquired. Hopefully this will soon happen with a $5+ price like we got for XRS in September 2014.

UP 106%, HOLD, Still a large valuation gap here and the Company is executing well.

CTIG announced Q2 2015 (June 30, 2015) earnings on 8/14/2015.

http://finance.yahoo.com/news/cti-group-reports-2015-second-212621737.html

Revenues came in at $3.7 million versus $4.1 million last year. They lost $323,000 compared to a loss of $296,000 last year.

Our valuation fell a bit to $1.12 a share, down from $1.21 last quarter and $1.22 last year. We will continue to HOLD CTIG.

Commenting on the results, Fred Hanuschek, CTI Group’s CEO and President, stated, “Although our first half results were not as strong as we had hoped, we are encouraged by the number of opportunities that we are actively pursuing and believe these opportunities should lead to better second half results

Still way undervalued, but no light as to when or how this will ever be properly valued.

John Birbeck announced his departure in October 2014. He was one of the group trying to take CTIG private for $.40 a share. Birbeck will remain a Director of the company. He owns about 7% of CTIG (about 2.3 million shares).

They need to get an investment banker and sell the company. Probably get at least $.75 a share for it from someone.

UP 26%. HOLD

BLIN and PRSS earnings updates

 

BLIN announced Q3 2015 earnings (quarter ended June 30, 2015) today. Revenues were $4.9 million down from $6.2 million last year but up from $4.8 million last quarter. They lost $.20 per share on a Non-GAAP basis compared to $.24 last year. Our valuation rose to $6.20 up from $6.10 last quarter on better margins. Overall, while margins and EBITDA (adjusted) improved it was pretty much a nothing quarter. Have to wait longer here as they eke out an existence and hopefully get this little boat moving in the right direction. HOLD.

PRSS announced Q2 2015 (6/30/2015) earnings last night. Not bad. They continue to slim down the business to its core. They are divesting their EZ print business now also. Revenues fell to $21.8 million from $29.1 million last year, but their loss from operations declined to $1.8 million from $4.4 million last year. Adjusted EBITDA was positive $.7 million versus negative $1.8 million last year. Cash fell to $46 million ($2.64 a share) from $56 million due to working capital changes and the repurchase of $2.3 million worth of stock. Our valuation was $8.95 down a tad from $9.09 last quarter. BUY

AVID Q2 (6/30/2015) Earnings update

AVID announced Q2 2015 earnings (quarter ended June 30, 2015) after the close last night. Revenues were $110 million down from $125 million last year. They made a Non-GAAP profit of $.05 per share versus a $.15 profit last year. Our valuation moved down a bit to $22.24 from $22.59 last quarter. They upped their 2015 guidance of $74-$80 million of adjusted EBITDA from $72-$78 million. Also, while the debt for the acquisition of Orad was on the balance sheet at June 30, the revenues and profits were not. You would think that AVID lost money and lowered their guidance by 50% with the way the market reacted afterhours last night and this morning. We are doubling up here. The new Buy Price will be approximately $11.30.
