My thinking is as long as Blinkx doesn't eat its cash then if there's more bad news on Nov 11 the sp can't go below 20p, although nothing would surprise me. Buying at 30p with a 3 year view will surely give a profit.
It's a pity these inversions have been curtailed. UK corp tax of 21% and the good bits of Blinkx + cash in bank would surely have made it an attractive takeover at this price.
I did go back through your posts, and no, it wasn't you. One of the occasional posters who is pretty sensible did call me out as a moaner, even though I was merely stating facts. Can't recall who it was though...
Truth be told, I was (am) fed up, and I simply wanted an excuse to complain, and that was the tack I took. Exiting on spikes, if one should ever occur. At this point I'd be happy to see this dog back in the 40s.
Thank you for that work. We can but keep our fingers crossed, but whatever the numbers may or may not mean at least they seem to be heading in the right direction. Whether a return to Jan's numbers represents an "inflection point" is perhaps moot.
The picture is much more dramatic with blinkx viewer rankings, and possibly more exciting indication of our performance more recently.. if we can keep a place or two behind yahoo that would be encouraging. I just hope it's not a red herring..
Month - viewers - ranking
Jan - <31m - N/R [outside top 10] Feb - 35 m - 8th Mar - 43 m - 6th Apr - <32m - N/R [outside top 10] May- <31m - N/R [outside top 10] Jun - <33m - N/R [outside top 10] Jul - <34m - N/R [outside top 10] Aug- <34m - N/R [outside top 10] Sep - 45 m - 6th
Fingers crossed for final 3 months of '14. I recall blinkx video portal isnt a big money spinner but still, does seem to have some correlation to our whole BE saga so again, is encouraging like the burst numbers
So to summarise for all, and s is mildly uplifiting, but let's wait to see if is a sign of a true inlfection point in August before we get too excited..
US desktop properties, rankings; Month - Rank - Reach % - in millions Jan - 12th - 73% - 164 m Feb - 11th - 69% - 153 m Mar - 10th - 68% - 154 m Apr - 10th - 64% - 146 m May- 10th - 60% - 138 m Jun - 10th - 64% - 146 m Jul - 8th - 69% - 157 m Aug - 8th - 73.3% - 165.9 m Sep - 6th - 73.5% - 166.1 m
Not much of a chage in Sept, but the competition mostly came off a % or two, hence we climbed.
Cinsider the above in terms if the BE saga timings etc, it is interesting.. And promising. I accept burst is only a portion of Blinkx but does seem to be some correlation with our broader fortunes
Exactly rusty.. That's what i'm really keen to find out and will be all over the Nov results to try to determine. To what extent are burst numbers a proxy for blinkx broadly, on top line revenue and also earnings.. Either rising here on will ge this choked off sp 'engine' roaring again ;-)
Im also really curious to see Blinkx pop back into the top 10 for US video sites on comscore for September, after a six month hiatus.. Interesting indeed.. Also need to dtermine how much these scores affect our fortunes.. Im going to post the numbers for all viewers, save them the 30 min i just spent reviewing them all back to Jan
