The Details Behind Merriman Curhan Ford's Nov 5 Downgrade of Geeknet (LNUX) to Neutral

December 28, 2009 – Comments (0) | RELATED TICKERS: BBY , AMZN , GKNT

"...Merriman analyst says, "We are downgrading LNUX shares to Neutral due to a lack of visibility into the turnaround of the Online Media segment and increased cash burn, which undermines the “backstop” for the stock (cash and NOLs). Under the new management, the Online Media segment has remained flat for the last three quarters, which considering the macro headwinds is perhaps commendable. However, our visibility remains poor. The company continues to introduce and sell premium ad placements with very high CPMs ($50s) and is refocusing on deeper penetration of its large advertising clients in the technology sector as well as premium brands in some non-endemic verticals, but is deemphasizing mid-level clients that took up resources and did not scale up...E-Commerce segment continues its steady growth. ECommerce revenue increased 11% Y/Y, despite the difficult consumer spending environment, and is projected to actually accelerate its growth in 4Q09 to the12-24% range..."  [more]

Curse.com $11M funding Provides Clear Evidence For SourceForge.net (Geeknet (LNUX)) Valuation and LNUX Closing Below Liquidation Value.

December 26, 2009 – Comments (5) | RELATED TICKERS: BBY , AMZN , GKNT

"...Most people would probably view a hardcore, 16 hour-a-day addiction to World of Warcraft as a bad thing. That was certainly the case for Hubert Thieblot a few years ago, when he dropped out of school and his parents decided to kick him out of the house because he was playing so much. Flash forward five years. Thieblot has managed to turn his addiction into a thriving company called Curse that generated over $3 million in revenue this year. Today, the company is disclosing a $6 million Series B round it closed in early 2009 with participation from Ventech Capital, AGF Private Equity, and SoftTech VC (Jeff Clavier). The round brings Curse’s total funding to $11 million, after a $5 million Series A round in 2007 led by AGF Private Equity.  [more]

Motley Fool Money Fools Shannon Zimmerman, James Early, and Seth Jayson Make Fools Out of Themselves and Motley Fool?

December 12, 2009 – Comments (5)

One never should willingly bite the hand that feeds them, however, it would be remiss of me to not address this telling(?) situation. At approximately 5:06 minutes into Motley Fool Money's December 4 podcast one of the panelists smugly stated "...Senator Jim Bunning comes out and this is the headline of the day and this is a prepared remark 'Your Fed has become our Jekyll Island'...The panelist (Zimmerman, or Early, or Jayson or the host) continued "...This mixes several metaphors.." Another panelist jumped in "...Does he mean the Creature of the Black Lagoon?"   Another..."...I have no idea? If he means Dr. Jekyll he got that wrong because Mr. Hyde's the bad guy and it's so unsophisticated...this is typical political theatre...".   [more]
