    It seems my post yesterday was removed? Any thoughts on what this Azure deal with MSFT means to VSAT.

    Being manipulated lower on Low volume and general fears of a market collapse? Cant imagine this is a justified drop in price. Remote work is increasing and need for Govt and rural satellite communication is a must. Will it become an AMZN subsidiary? I'm still adding, but it's not easy to be bullish when there's blood in the streets of Carlsbad. :O

    Agree stock is in limbo right now and drifting with the market, I will average down along the way, long term I see more upside than downside, but just an opinion.

    Mgmt is product focused not stock holder oriented.

    I smell fish... VSAT works a deal for big blocks for $39.11 per share. I'm betting this thing is getting ready to blow to the upside. Tight float and solid business model.. I wouldn't rule out an offer at these levels. Somewhere in the $50-$55 per share range.

    GOGO a company that was on most people's bankruptcy watch list sells their commercial airline portfolio and business to an already bankrupt company and people are worried?

    If Big Investors betting $175M at $39.11, seems like it's a safe bet at $37-38. Starlink is a competitor of sorts, but at this point, seems all that is baked in. Insiders had bought at $55 pre-covid to show confidence. So IMO, feels safe to buy here and ride until $55, and maybe even $70-75 where it has been historically.

    VSAT is one of the best bet stocks. Many DOD contracts are being granted to VSAT. It can go above $50 when contracts are announced.

    This stock is very disappointing. Very little mgmt effort to send any positive signals. Gogo is rocketing and VSAT shows no life...need to show some momentum; otherwise continue to lose investors

    VSAT... Wow... what a diamond in the rough! This is easily a $50 stock with such a low float and solid business plan. I don't expect this company to be here long. I'm thinking a buyout is imminent at these levels.

    I am currently considering VSAT for a Pure Earnings Long play, for Thursday AH/Friday PM. Company is currently not profitable, but based on my analysis I think they could become profitable very soon, perhaps even this coming quarter. Company has a lot of growth potential, and I think the stock price could react very favorably to a positive and strong ER. I would welcome any thoughts or comments on this potential play.

    Other stocks I am considering for this date are ZEN as a Long, and WYNN and TDC as Sell Shorts. I am not finding many plays that look really good to me on this date. Right now, VSAT Long and WYNN short strike me as perhaps the best options.

    Any hidden gems out there that I might have missed?? Your suggestions are welcome and very much appreciated, folks! :-)

    I have finished researching my next Pure Earnings play, for Thurs AH/Fri PM, and in the end it came down to a head-to-head showdown between VSAT and FTNT. Both of these plays look very good to the upside, and choosing one over the other was very difficult. But I have done it, and I choose VSAT. Here is a brief rundown of my impressions and research analysis:

    VSAT: Very good Earnings History, EPS and Revenue beats for five consecutive quarters. Excellent stock reactions to earnings reports: 2 15+% pops in past 9 ER's. Growing revenue. Recent very positive news, USAF contract awarded. Analysts are bullish. Excellent and unanimous upside potential on PT's. Company not profitable last year, but is on the cusp and expected to become profitable this year. Financials are good, but not great. Stock is near a 52 week low, and there are good reasons to think this ER will not just beat, but beat solidly. A 7-12% upside move seems perfectly plausible, on a strong beat.

    FTNT: Outstanding Earnings History, 11 straight quarters of beats on both EPS and Revenue, a rare feat! Outstanding Guidance History, they have guided higher 9 of the last 12 quarters, even rarer a feat! Stock price reactions to earnings are very good, but slightly less than VSAT. Analysts are bullish, but upside potential near-term appears less than VSAT. Company profitable, slightly overvalued. Earnings this quarter might be under pressure due to two completed acquisitions. Excellent overall financials, slightly better than VSAT.

    The main reasons I am choosing VSAT over FTNT are: Better upside potential on a very good ER, and less downside risk of a big drop, if the ER is not that good.

    Of course this is all just my opinion and you should know that every Pure Earnings play carries the very real risk of a 10-20% loss of the capital you put into the trade.

    Best of Luck to All! :-)

    Out VSAT at $65.23 for a loss of just under $2.9k. Another failed Pure Earnings play, and my first Red week of the year. There will be more, I am quite certain. But the months and years are much more important than the weeks. I think I have an excellent chance of going and staying Green for the month of February, despite a bad start to the month.

    I gave this baby until 3:30 PM to perk up, but then had to unload her, to do my next play, Short 3200 shares of EPC at $30.69. EPC reports before market open on Monday, and I am looking for a poor ER, and a drop in the stock price to the $28 level.

    Best of Luck to All and enjoy the weekend! :-)
