InSaNAnt... regarding the clarification on the question... your clarification appears to be a distinction without a difference. But, that's just my opinion.
Re you're not quite sure you like the direction of the company... I don't see how anyone can dislike the increase in revenue 700%, or the increase in assets 10 fold. Are we making millions yet, no, but at least we are moving rapidly in the right direction. What is not to like about that ???
I need you to help me understand WHY you don't like the direction of the company. I guess those that are glass half-empty types can look at all the things that could be better and become overwhelmed with those aspects. However, those with glass half-full outlooks will see all the good things and see additional potential. Two people can look at the same color and see different shades, or even different colors altogether.
For me... the purchase of PunchTV was a good thing because it added immediate revenue. The name change was another good thing because the new name will better describe the purpose and direction of the company. The addition of the 2b shares I feel was a good thing because the intended purpose of the addition will help reduce financing costs... which means more net profits. AND... if some or all of those shares are used to purchase another money making business like PunchTV, then that would be a good thing also. As I have said in other posts... I see no history within this company that the additional shares will be squandered. Keep in mind also that all of the first 2b have not been used yet, so why would anyone think Steve will blow through the new 2b shares.
So, for me, there is much more to be thankful for than to be disappointed about. The most exciting aspect is waiting for the next Q. Everyone should know by now that the most recent Q contained very little of the PunchTV revenue. This upcoming Q will have the full 3-months of revenue. I think it will give a clearer picture of what the acquisition of PunchTV did for the bottom line. However, keep in mind that even this Q will likely not tell the full story due to it being mid-Q when the homes being broadcast to exceeded 50m, which as Steve said will enable them to get more national type of ad dollars.
Also keep in mind that this company if fully reporting - i.e. they are hiding nothing. Compare that to some of these other companies that are the "hot stock" of the week. How many of those companies are hiding the more controversial aspect of their business.
Re the statement that you are not trying to hurt your own stock... I suspect some true shareholders are not aware their comments could hurt the PPS. They may be overwhelmed by frustration that they lash out and post something they may regret later. However, like the saying goes... you can't un-ring a bell. When such is posted... its there for ever, for potential investors to see, and likely influence their buying decision to a certain degree. We can debate the concept of negative opinion affecting PPS's all day, however I think ICPA is a case study on the effectiveness of negative opinions. There are some who think the fall of the PPS is due to other issues such as share structure, or name change, or etc, etc, etc, but I think a case could be made that those are positive actions that are simply misunderstood, and therefore result in negative postings.
Just think about this... there are some here that have called for a "promotional" campaign in order to get the PPS up. Well... if GOOD press will increase the PPS... why is it so hard for some to believe that BAD press will lower the PPS.
