+ Watch AOL
on My Watchlist
AOL is a web-services company, providing premium and niche content sites, tools, and platforms.
Tim Armstrong is out for profits. He's dumped his personal baby, Patch, and is moving towards the advertising realm.
Like Demand Media, AOL operates low quality content farms and is dependent on Google traffic.

Short. Company’s heyday is long gone and this stock will continue to lag as it has been doing.
PRISMI am a foreign (non-U.S.) national living outside the USA. I am also a paying customer of Microsoft, Google and Apple's.In fact, Microsoft and Apple are likely to derive the major part of their global revenues from people just like me: people outside the USA. Billions of people around the world use Microsoft and Apple products and use Google searches on a daily basis.Does this make all the 5 billion people outside of the USA free game? I find these reassurances that "only non U.S. persons outside the USA" are targeted very disturbing in their narrowness and lack of regard for international business.Personally, I am likely to terminate my business relationships with the above companies when the next reasonable opportunity presents itself.From A PR point of view, I am baffled about not having heard of any efforts of the companies participating in PRISM to reassure their international customers. The same goes for the reporting on these issues, as above.
Still crazy undervalued. Will be over $50 by the end of the year.
Pick based on Trefis analysis as of 2/7/13
Has a few attractive assets, but after that its downhill.
Huntington Post won't do it any favors over the long term, particularly as I don't see it providing any significant, sustainable revenue flow. Seems like it's only hope is to continue selling patents to less antiquated companies. This might lift it in the short term, but will ultimately strip it of its last remaining value.
AOL not king any longer
The company is now a diluted assortment of patents with pitiable margins. That intellectual property is rapidly depreciating, so I expect the company to follow. When they lose the baby boomer subscribers they still have, AOL will fade into oblivion.
Last chance for longs to get out, and a great entry point for shorts to get in.AOL is the RIMM of ISPs and web search
I could be wrong, but I just like Huffington as a businesswoman and think she has a legitimate vision for a global middle class dingbat news organization, one that mostly plays to knuckleheads wanting advice about how to handle their divorces, etc., and has enough intelligent articles to avoid being a laughingstock. This is a very difficult tightrope to walk, but I continue to see enough upside if the vision works to justify risk. Used to own a nice load of shares, but now only doing indexes. Could own this one if I wanted to have a small higher-risk portion of my port. Definitely worth a CAPS green thumb.
Margins are small and decreasing. Plus, dial-up is losing market share.
Not a pitch, simply a question. How is AOL still in existence?
I got in for $12.00; I see a small bounce-back in the next couple of weeks.
Huffington!? Are you serious!? BWAHAHAHA!! DUMP.
This company is going nowhere
