I doubt that Novatel Wireless, INC, the "Internet of Things", white knight HC2 will sell off any of the 12M shares it has bought or has rights to buy between $1.75 and $2.26, but the larger total float will reduce the revenue per share When/IF Novatel Wireless starts posting a profit. A new router to Verizon is a good start. Better performance, longer battery life.

Overall, however, Novatel hsa been on a sharp downward spiral for years. Negative 21% profit margins, 60% YoY drop in revenue, annual loss 2X cash, (before infusion), etc, will take some time to turn. Nice double from earlier in the year, I had been watching it, but current price, 30% above share price of capital injection is too rich for now.

One to watch, looking for a share price adjustment in the near term.

Wireless technology will grow, the internet of things or machine to machine communication will grow and likely grow very rapidly. There may be better, smarter companies in this space, but this one is a my gamble based on low stock price. If it finds it niche and becomes profitable, it should outperform others in its space, but that is a risk. Of course, there is also the possibility of a buy out when the industry consolidates which will happen in the years to come.

(NVTL) Novatel Wireless, Inc., founded in 1996, provides wireless broadband access solutions for the mobile communications market worldwide. The company's products are designed to operate on wireless networks and provide mobile subscribers with high speed access to corporate, public, and personal information through the Internet and enterprise networks. Novatel Wireless also offers software engineering, integration, and design services to its customers to facilitate the use of its products. Novatel has just launched what is being called the "Next Generation in Mobile Broadband Connectivity". MiFi represents the industry’s first Intelligent Mobile Hotspot, a new category of mobile broadband that lets users put their world of content, services and connectivity in their pocket. Featuring an internal battery providing over forty hours standby and up to four hours of active use on a single charge, the MiFi product line enables users to access high-speed Internet from anywhere there is a cellular connection, including moving vehicles where multiple passengers may need Internet access. Sounds cool to me and on that note the stock has been going up recently. Major funds either buying more shares or creating new positions include: T. Rowe Price, Oppenheimer, Schwab, US Bancorp DE,Putnam, Vanguard, Padco, AIG, Barclays, AXA, Wells Fargo, Merril Lynch, Munder and Summit. The chart shows a nice, steady climb since the end of '08 and it's setting up for a 50/100 day moving average cross right now. It's in a correction now but it was up Friday (Feb 13th) on better than average volume so I might wait until it pulls back again before I buy. If it gets through $6.79 on big volume it could see $9 real soon.

Has been beaten down so heavily that if balance sheet ends up being close to as reported, can easily surge from low $6's back to near $10 as it has about $6 in tangible book value and could return to profitability. Depends on what the audit comes up with by October, but leaves plenty of upside.

Big Dog with Big Fleas and management always finds a way to provide horrific guidance and they simply do not deliver around earnings. Having said that take a look at the pattern. Short term buying opportunities after earnings when the stock gets hammered, set a short term price target, move to cash and wait for the next earnings release. For the long-short traders, get a double dose by shorting the stock a day before the earnings release.

Company has solid track history and will come back with the market within two years and rebound 3 folds. Stock will be trading in the $27-$32 range.

Poor execution has depressed the stock price, but this company still has the opportunity to come back.

Novatel dropped to its lowest level in 4 years just weeks ago. They consistently sit between 8 to 24 dollars and its about 9 dollars now. BUY BUY BUY!
