I've not done very well in the past down thumbing LivePerson, and if I had reviewed my notes before I thumbed down the 18% spike today, I might have taken a pass.

Overall, they continue to grow the topline, but minimal growth in the bottom line. Some big customers popping on board, but still $1.8M in losses this quarter. Extra spending on building/servers, etc, burning down cash, but $71M should hold them if they can turn positive soon. Turning positive would be a nice catalyst, so while I think they are highly over valued here at $12, at 3.5P/B and 3X P/S, not much to squeeze here other than the overshoot from the 2M shorts, 5X the average daily bottom, that should bleed down.

Short term call, not enthused with the metrics, but following too strong to get overly critical.

Customer support is what differentiates companies today, and LivePerson is the market leader is allowing companies to communicate with customers. Because of their superior technology (that I have used before and led me to a sale), LPSN will outperform the market.

Great Niche. Lost a big contract a couple of months ago, but is slowly rebuilding.

LivePerson continue to drive strong revenues from their solid base of 8,500+ customers as well as delivering innovation which expands the reach within existing customers as well as across broader markets. A strong performer in the past very well positioned to grow in the coming years.

I can’t ignore LivePerson (LPSN) any longer. I often favor value stocks, but I also like growth stocks, so long as I can really understand what the company does and provided it has a sterling balance sheet. Well, LPSN has got both areas covered: it develops software applications for ecommerce so businesses can better interact with their customers (read: increase conversion rates and provide better customer service) and it has a sterling balance sheet.

LPSN carries absolutely no debt (0.00 long-term and total debt to equity ratios) and has plenty of cash on hand, evidenced by a 3.3 quick ratio and a 3.5 current ratio. I’m averse to investing in companies with too much debt, so I imagine I’ve accordingly bypassed quite a few growth stocks with good growth potential, but in my mind, LPSN has both great growth potential without any of the risks that come from being overleveraged early in a company’s development.

Like it or not, ecommerce is a growing part of a new shopping paradigm and companies like LPSN are going to be highly sought after because they provide actionable information to online businesses in an increasingly competitive retail landscape. With clients like IBM, The Home Depot, Verizon, Discover, Chase, and Wells Fargo, LPSN seems to be the leader of the pack. I also unwittingly used a LPSN product months ago when trying to redeem a coupon on an online clothier’s website and came away pleased with the experience, as they were able to take care of my concern and I immediately.

LPSN is also very profitable: its 79.50% gross margin is almost double its industry average, and over the past five years, sales have grown 36.79%, and with any luck, its earnings should keep growing too. I guess you could say I'm sold on LPSN.

Its better than hunt and peck through the websites looking for answers. Its more immediate than the holds for a live person. Its such an obvious necessity that competition will move in quickly... that's why I only give it a year or so...

I think this company is a potential takeover target from a larger tech company because it is a leader in its field but is still cheap enough to buy outright with a market cap below $1B.

More and More people are shopping on line. LPSN provides a quality service that a lot of big name companies use. Disney, PNC, Capital One, SunTrust, Wells Fargo to name a few Financials. Retailors include 1-800Flowers, Crate and Barrel, Home Depot. Telco/Cable/Internet Verizon, Bell Canada, Yahoo/ Travel : Orbitz. High Tech IBM, Microsoft, Cisco, H P. and a whole lot more. They have good rev. and earning. Maybe a future buyout target but if not I've been in with real money around $6.05

There expanding customer base and market regions seems very attractive. As well as 41% of people number one concern is at the time of purchase online be able to get answers to questions.

Everywhere I turn there is another web site which I engage with on a live chat. Most of them powered by Live Person. I still need to be convinced of their experts online at the web site, but I'm actually going to give that a test drive here in the near future to investigate some technical issues. Hope my limit order goes thru. I'm "cheap"!
