Wir haben da eine Marktkapitalisierung von 308 Millionen, davon dürften momentan nach Abzug der Schulden ca. 180 bis 190 Millionen durch Cash und Wertpapiere abgedeckt sein, so das noch ca. 125 Milllionen durch die Beteiligungen abgedeckt werden müssten, deren anteilige Umsäzte in etwa diesem Wert entsprechen.

Das wäre eine Kurs-Umsatz-Verhältnis von 1. Üblich sind bei vergleichbaren Umsätzen Kurs-Umsatz-Verhältnisse zwischen 5 und 10. Welches enorme Kurspotenzial als in Internet Capital schlummert, ist relativ leicht nachvollzuziehen.

Ehe die momentane Shortseller-Spekulation zusammenbricht, sollte man also drin sein.

eCredit Transportation Reports Help freightquote.com Reduce Bad Debt
- Leading Provider of Online B2B Shipping and Logistics Services Streamlines Credit Analysis with eCredit -

DEDHAM, Mass., November 29, 2005 &mdash eCredit, a leading provider of online solutions for credit and collections professionals, today announced that freightquote.com, the leading online marketplace for shippers and carriers, has realized significant benefits and addressed many of its credit and collections management challenges through the use of eCredit Transportation Credit Reports.

Effective Account Management with Past Due and Portfolio Monitor Report
When performing analysis on customer accounts, the freightquote.com credit department pulls eCredit's Past Due Report and Portfolio Monitor Report. These reports help credit managers not only determine those accounts with the highest delinquency but also facilitate the identification of accounts that may be potential problems. By supplying information as to how customers are paying other transportation service providers, the credit department can more proactively manage a customer's credit line. Beyond the monthly reports, eCredit also works to streamline the analysis of accounts. freightquote.com downloads eCredit's score into its own internal A/R system to view quarter to quarter trends. The credit department can see clearly if an account is trending down, and then pull reports to perform a deeper analysis.

Valuable Insight into Payment Trends with Industry-Specific Information and Credit Groups eCredit provides indispensable information on how a given customer is paying. "eCredit gives us relevant data, not just aggregate information," said Tami Stone, Director of Credit and Collections for freightquote.com. "How a particular shipper is paying the electricity company is not as important to me as how this company is paying its freight bills. eCredit reports provide this valuable information."

In addition, NACM credit groups utilizing eCredit platform provide a forum for freightquote.com to discuss customer trends. "Being part of the credit group is a major benefit of eCredit; I can call on vendors in other industries to discuss the developments pertaining to a given account and gain that extra comfort level," added Stone.

Reduced Bad Debt and Better Collections with Monthly Reviews freightquote.com has been using eCredit reports for close to 3 years, and in this time has managed to reduce bad debt significantly. At least part of this reduction can be attributed to monthly account reviews that identify those accounts that need particular attention for collections. For example, instead of sending an account to a third-party collection agency, eCredit allows freightquote.com to interact with other companies across different industries to determine how best to get money from a customer and tweak collections processes to bring in the cash. This has saved freightquote.com several thousands of dollars a month.

Finally, freightquote.com has found that eCredit data continues to increase in validity and volume. "As time goes by, the information in eCredit reports increases in breadth and reliability," said Eric Votaw, Credit Manager, freightquote.com. "I can view trends and know that what I am seeing is an accurate reflection of how this customer will pay."

Auch auf die Gefahr hin, dass der Schreiner"meister"

erneut ausflippt, der leider den einen oder anderen Leser auf deutschen Boards schon um viel Geld gebracht haben dürfte, weil er vermutlich aus Frust über Verluste aus New Economy-Zeiten den Käufern in diesem Wert keine Kursgewinne gonnt, der Shortseller hat sich heute weiter gigantisch in die Scheisse geritten.

Lasst Euch also von schrei-ner nicht erneut verarschen, der hat das schon unter vier Dollar getan, zwischen vier und fünf Dollar, zwischen fünf und sechs Dollar, zwischen sechs und sieben Dollar, zwischen und sieben und acht Dollar usw. Wir sind eben seine Couch - und da ist er beinhart und kennt keinerlei Rücksicht für alle, die in New Economy-Zeiten nicht für über 4.000 Dollar gekauft haben, sondern vor einiger Zeit bei 4 Dolllar.

Kreditrisikohandel mit Derivaten könnte zur Goldgrube

für Internet Capital werden, denn man ist mit 30% an einem der größten Datenlieferanten und Händler/Broker auf diesem Sektor beteiligt. Kein anderer Derivatemarkt wächst derzeit so stark wie der Handel mit Kreditderivaten. Und das hat gute Gründe.

Welche das sind, habe ich hier von Internetseite der Consultingfirma d-fine einmal kopiert:

"Der Markt für Strukturierte Transaktionen wächst unaufhaltsam. Während in der Anfangsphase die Reduktion regulatorischen Eigenkapitals im Vordergrund stand, rückt heute die Übertragung von Risiken, die Refinanzierung des originären Geschäftes sowie die Steuerung des ökonomischen Eigenkapitals in den Mittelpunkt des Interesses.

Auch die Investorensicht hat sich im Laufe der Zeit verändert: Ungebrochen ist der Wunsch nach Diversifizierung und Teilhaberschaft an bis dato nur dem Originator zugänglichen Risikoklassen.

Doch zusätzlich rücken die Rolle des Servicers, dessen regelmäßiges Reporting und die Qualität der verfügbaren Informationen zu den Assets immer stärker in den Fokus der Investoren."

Credittrade dürfte in 2005 zwischen 40 und 50 Millionen umsetzen, die sich in 2006 auf ca. 75 Millionen erhöhen dürften. Ein Wert von 500 Millionen für Credittrade sind vermutlich keine Träumerei. Die 30% von Internet Capital hätten dann einen Wert von 150 Millionen.

Freeborders Expansionspläne

Börsengang in naher Zukunft nicht ausgeschlossen!

BEIJING, Dec. 8 -- Positive about future business prospects, Freeborders is pouring hefty capital into its technology centre in Shenzhen to fund an expansion.

A global leading IT and software application outsourcing provider, Freeborders, headquartered in San Francisco in the United States, located its only technology centre in Shenzhen in 2002, with an approximate investment of US$7 million.

"Freeborders has recently secured capital worth US$20 million to fund the expansion of the Shenzhen centre," Fang Liang, president of Freeborders Asia, told China Daily at the Gartner's China Outsourcing Summit which ended yesterday.

The capital has come from a new investor FTVentures, as well as the existing investors of Internet Capital Group and TAL Investments, capital providers specializing in software companies. The capital will primarily be used to expand the technology centre in Shenzhen but it will also be used to expand sales teams in North America and Europe, Fang said.

The money going into the Shenzhen centre will not only be used to expand the overall workspace, but also to improve security and install cutting-edge broadband connectivity.

In addition, the company plans to increase the number of employed software developers from the current 400 to 600 in the first quarter of 2006, with a view to increase this to 1000 software developers by the end of next year, he said.

He said that Freeborders is also seeking opportunities to go public in order to raise more funds to meet the booming demand for its business, though he did not disclose further details or a time frame of this.

"Strengthening our market expertise and building the scale of our business are crucial to continuing our success at Freeborders," he said.

The firm has long provided technology solutions in the three vertical markets of retail and consumer goods, financial services, and software and technology.

The president said that Freeborders will gear up to further tap into business opportunities in the financial services sector, which boasts the largest market potential for software outsourcers in China.

He said that new business opportunities will be brought about by its new investor FTVentures, a capital provider to firms that create technology applications of interest to the financial services industry, since this company has a global partner network of 38 of the world's leading financial institutions.

"Representatives from several Wall Street financial companies have been lining up for talks with us since early November," he said.

Fang continued by saying that the company's core strengths, combined with the business prospect of software outsourcing services in China, have given Freeborders the confidence that they can continue to be successful in the future.

Seinen ca. 20 Beteiligungen fügt Internet Capital eine weitere hinzu:


------------------------- ------------------------- ------------------------- -----

06.12.2005 / 15:13
Internet Capital Group: Beteiligung an WhiteFence

WAYNE - Der Internet-Incubator Internet Capital Group (Nasdaq: ICGE, WKN: A0CA1H< IER1.FSE> hat sich eigenen Angaben zufolge 39 Prozent der Anteile des Web Service Providers WhiteFence gesichert. ICG hat demnach 10,5 Mio. Anteile im Rahmen einer 15 Mio. Dollar umfassenden Finanzierungsrunde erworben.
Hinter WhiteFence steht das Unternehmen Qcorps Residential Inc, welches jedoch seine Geschäfte unter dem Namen WhiteFence abwickelt. Der Werb-Service des Unternehmens richtet sich vornehmlich an Privatverbraucher in den USA, die über den Service der Gesellschaft Preise und Dienstleistungen von Energieversorgern, aber auch Telefon-, Kabel- und Internet Providern vergleicht. Zielgruppe der Gesellschaft sind rund 23 Mio. US-Haushalte, die regelmäßig zu günstigeren Anbietern wechseln.

WhiteFence generiert Umsätze durch das Neukundengeschäft, sowie Zahlungen seiner Netzwerkpartner (mehr als 400 Service Provider). In 2005 rechnet WhiteFence mit Einnahmen von neun Mio. Dollar, was einem Zuwachs von 70 Prozent gegenüber dem Vorjahr entsprechen würde. (ami)

wo Internet Capital am 30.9. noch etwas mehr als zwei Millionen Stück hat (ca. 2.050.000). Die sind momentan bei über 32 Dollar die Aktie, was allein 65 Millionen ausmacht.

Ihr erinnert Euch sicher noch als ein gewisser Libuda ausgelacht wurde, als er den Wert von Blackboard zwischen 500 Millionen und einer Milliarde ansiedelte, inzwischen sind wir bei 800 Millionen. Trotzdem meine ich, dass sie die Aktien zu Cash machen sollten und das Geld in Firmen wie WhiteFence anlegen sollten, denn es ist ja der Geschäftszweck in frühen Stadien in Firmen einzusteigen und sie in reiferen Stadien zu verkaufen.

Profits in Plain Sight
By Roger Friedman (TMF Roger)
December 8, 2005

Before I came to work at the Fool, I always assumed that a search for little-known companies would require me to scour society's unloved underbelly, searching in dark crevices for the company that makes luxury nose-hair trimmers or develops the little magnetic strips on credit cards or manufactures the crayon sharpener in the big pack. Little companies that do little things.

But it turns out that in the quest for the small companies that will someday turn into really big companies -- the next Wal-Mart or Microsoft or Starbucks or whatever -- we aren't limited to operations that are running out of someone's garage. With a market cap range of $200 million to $2 billion for formal recommendations in the Hidden Gems newsletter service, there's an incredible variety of "real" companies to pursue in the hopes of finding one (or a few) that will provide market-thumping returns as they grow.

Right now, these companies are mostly underfollowed by analysts, undervalued by investors, and flying comfortably beneath Wall Street's radar. But we don't necessarily have to troll the waters of obscurity to find small-cap winners. There are plenty of businesses valued under $2 billion that are well-run and shareholder-friendly, that are increasing sales at least 15% annually -- and that I've heard of! So I get to combine the potential magic of small-cap investing with Peter Lynch's commonsense brilliance of buying what I know.

A quick screen turned up quite a few promising prospects.

A bouquet of well-known small caps
You've been there before. Your anniversary is somehow -- completely without warning -- tomorrow and you need to prove that you were not only aware, but anticipating the event. So you make a quick call to 1-800-Flowers (Nasdaq: FLWS) to maintain your status as a good guy. The $400 million flower delivery company expects to continue 15% growth in year-over-year sales, boost its margins by 1.5%, and generate about $25 million in free cash flow. Although 1-800-Flowers has yet to be a compelling investment, this is a well-known brand with substantial sales growth. If management figures out a way to start turning consistent profits, this could be a small-cap story worth watching.

Later, when you finally realize that there are ways to remember anniversaries and birthdays, you key those big days into your Treo, the do-everything machine from Palm (Nasdaq: PALM). According to a post from community member hiddenflem on the Hidden Gems discussion boards:

"Last month, longtime rivals Microsoft (Nasdaq: MSFT) and Palm announced that the new Palm Treo will run on Windows Mobile 5.0 and will use the Verizon (NYSE: VZ) EVDO network.

"Is this for real? Yes, it's for real, and we can only marvel at the prospect. Old rivals Microsoft and Palm are an unlikely, but welcome pairing. Palm's very popular Treo smartphone, coupled with Microsoft's mobile OS -- with its myriad multimedia capabilities running over Verizon's high-speed wireless broadband network -- is a compelling combination. ... The new Treo smartphone bodes well for corporate and consumer users. They will be getting the best of the best. Microsoft has had limited success with its Windows Mobile OS and has not been hugely successful in the PDA market. And Palm's decision to support Windows Mobile 5.0 on its device is a clear nod to Microsoft's continued dominance of the desktop operating space. It makes absolute sense that the firms would combine these two best-of-breed products into a single offering."

And yes, with a market cap of $1.4 billion, Palm is a small-cap company (although its omnipresent technology might lead you to believe it's already much, much bigger).

Small caps for your progeny
If you have a kid in college, you are most likely aware of Blackboard (Nasdaq: BBBB) -- you probably write a check to cover the cost of it every semester. The company's Academic Suite helps professors and students interact by sharing syllabi, homework assignments, grades, and cooperative research online. As Motley Fool co-founder Tom Gardner wrote in his recommendation of the company in Hidden Gems, "Blackboard has more than 3,000 licenses with 2,225 institutions, serving students from kindergarten through graduate school. The average licensee pays close to $29,000 a year, and customers are renewing at a rate north of 90%. The firm is making inroads internationally, with more than 15% of its sales on foreign soil and a commitment to translate its software into eight languages by the end of this year." Moreover, the company just bought its largest competitor. Yup, another small-cap company -- $800 million for now.

OK, one more. Parents of younger kids are not only aware of LeapFrog Enterprises (NYSE: LF), but their homes may well be overrun with its electronic learning toys for toddlers to teens. The Hug & Learn Baby Tad Plush is a constant companion for my daughter -- so much so that she felt compelled to put a diaper on him. The toy maker recently released a pen computer -- featuring an optical scanner and a computer chip -- that could substantially broaden its scope and success. The $99 gadget hit retail stores in October. One trick it can perform: If you draw a musical instrument, the pen's speaker allows you to play it. Hasbro and Mattel (NYSE: MAT) remain the clear leaders in the toy kingdom, but more hot products like the FLY pen computer and the LeapPad could transform the $900 million LeapFrog into a company worth closer to the $3.5 billion and $6.5 billion that Hasbro and Mattel command -- making it a potential four- to seven-bagger.

There are thousands of smaller companies that want to make the leap into the realm of the big boys, both hidden and obvious. Fool co-founder Tom Gardner offers up two great options every month in Hidden Gems, and with a free, no-obligation 30-day trial, you get access to each one of his selections since the newsletter's inception. (To date, those recommendations are besting the S&P 500 by more than 20 percentage points.) Take a look and find the best companies you've never heard of and the best little companies you thought had already made it big.

notiert?

Das wird die spannende Frage der nächsten Woche? Und das Gute daran: Internet Capital hält hier 54%.

Finanzplatz London führt bei Neuemissionen

titelt das Handelsblatt auch letzte Woche und zeigte damit, wo die Musik bei Neuemissionen neben den USA wirklich spielt:

"2005 könnte sich als ein Rekordjahr erweisen, schätzt Tom Troubridge, Partner der Unternehmensberatung PWC und regelmäßiger Beobachter des Emissionsmarktes. Im Juli kamen so viele Neuemissionen an den Markt wie seit vier Jahren nicht. 15 neue Werte brachten ein Volumen von fast 2 Milliarden Pfund an die Börse. Als vorläufige Bilanz bis Anfang November meldete die London Stock Exchange 306 Neuemissionen, gut 50% mehr als im Jahr zuvor."

Seltsamerweise erfährt man auch im Handelsblatt, wie in den anderen deutschen Zeitungen auch, nichts über einen ehemaligen Darling der deutschen New Economy-Szene, der als Private Held ganz gut überlebt hat, vermutlich in der nächsten Woche in London an die Börse kommt, wenn auch "nur" AIM und vielleicht einen Kauf wert wäre: GoIndustry, die neben London und den USA weiterhin einen ihrer Hauptsitze in München hat, auch wenn die Führungsspitze nicht mehr aus Deutschland kommt. Bei einem geschätzten Jahresumsatz zwischen 40 und 50 Millionen in 2005 dürfte die Marktkapitalsierung zwischen 100 und 200 Millionen liegen. Das scheint Euch vielleicht etwas zu tief gegriffen, aber in einigen Teilbereichen ist sicher die Konkurrenz durch Ebay recht hart.

Europa scheint also bei den Neuemissionen jetzt nach den USA, die so grausame Emissionen wie Commerce One und ähnliches Dreckszeug, das früher auch die deutschen Boards füllte, schneller überwunden zu haben, jetzt auch Boden unter den Füßen zu bekommen, auch in den Branchen, die durch Flops der Scharlatane und ihrer Bejubler schwer geschädigt wurden.

GoIndustry, so hat sich trotz aller Schwierigkeiten herausgestellt, gehört zur True Economy und sollte also zumindest bis Weihnachten sein Meisterstück machen.

54487 Postings, 5950 Tage LibudaTrue Ecnomoy zuckt



und die Beteiligungen von Internet Capital sind an den Schalthebeln positioniert, die diesen Prozess befeuern.

"Emporgeschossen ist im Sommer die Produktivität in den USA. Die Herstellung pro Arbeitsstunde stieg auf das Jahr hochgerechnet um fast fünf Prozent - wie zu den guten alten Zeiten der New Economy."

Und in der FTD, der ich die obigen Zeilen entnommen habe, heißt es dann an anderer Stelle weiter:

"Als Grund hatten Ökonomen damals die hohen Investitionen in IT- und Kommunikationsausrüstung ausgemacht. Dies habe die Effizienzzuwächse der Firmen stark erhöht. Umstritten bleibt aber, ob dahinter mehr als nur ein einmaliger Schub steckte oder künfitig ein dauerhaft höherer Produktivitätszuwachs möglich sei. In der Krise nach 2000 ließen die Expansionsraten teils kräftig nach, die anschließenden Fortschritte wurden von Skeptikern vor allem als Folge einer stark krisenbedingten Rationalisierung in den Betrieben eingestuft. Optimisten sehen das anders. "Es wird auch in den nächsten Jahren ein hohes Produktivitätswachstum geben", so Jörg Kramer, Chefvolkswirt der HypoVereinsbank. Kurzfristig hat die Effizienzsteigerung aber noch einen positiven Nebeneffekt. Die Lohnkosten pro Produkteinheit wachsen kaum noch. Zuletzt gab sogar ein leichtes Minus. Das senkt den Ínflaitonsdruck und erlaubt der Fed, ihre Zinsen länger niedrig zu halten."

Mit deiner Kursverdoppelungsankündigung hast du in Wirklichkeit dein Kursziel um 200% reduziert. Noch Anfang des Jahres hast du für ICGE einen Kursanstieg von 300% verkündet.
Das war bisher eine Nullnummer, jetzt gibtst du dich mit 100% in den nächsten 6 Monaten zufrieden. Anstatt immer dicke Backen über die tollen ICGE Beteiligungen und den Wertsteigerungen in vielen ständig neu aufgemachten Beiträge zu machen, solltest du mal einfach eingestehen, das du dich in der Aktie ganz einfach verschätzt hast.

ICG Commerce Recognized by IDC as a Procurement Business Process Outsourcing Market Leader
Tuesday December 13, 8:00 am ET  
Independent Research Firm Cites Strength of Customer Base and Sophistication of Thinking as the Foundation for Continued Growth in the BPO Market


PHILADELPHIA, Dec. 13 /PRNewswire/ -- Procurement Services Provider ICG Commerce today announced it has been recognized as a leading procurement business process outsourcing (BPO) provider by IDC, an independent IT and BPO services research firm. In a recent report titled "Vendor Needs and Strategies: Procurement BPO Competitive Landscape" (IDC #33947, September 2005), IDC evaluated 12 vendors and recognized ICG Commerce as a "strong, focused player in the procurement BPO space given its decade-long specialty focus on procurement services."

ICG Commerce's market leadership is most evident through its strong track record with customers. IDC specifically highlighted the company's numerous long-term outsourcing customers stating that: "ICG Commerce has been providing services to 20 of them for longer than three years. The fact that ICG Commerce is among the first to land a client (Avaya) that is in its second wave of comprehensive procurement BPO lends testimony to its efforts. [ICG Commerce] has a core base of large customers with whom it has comprehensive, longer-term outsourcing relationships and a larger set of accounts that are smaller in scope for whom it manages a select number of categories."

IDC believes that ICG Commerce is a "recognized brand" in the market and lauded the Procurement Services Provider for making "great strides in thought leadership around procurement BPO issues." ICG Commerce's sophistication of thinking and dedication to educational efforts were cited as keys behind the company's recognition as a leader among prospects. Combined with a strong, long-term track record of success and a complete, mature set of services, ICG Commerce's forward-thinking approach positions the company well for continued growth in procurement BPO, according to IDC.

"IDC has been closely researching the procurement BPO landscape for some time, and we are pleased to see the firm recognize ICG Commerce as a leader and innovative voice in the market," said Edward H. West, chairman and chief executive officer for ICG Commerce. "We believe our operational focus, depth of experience and commitment to delivering exceptional results enables us to truly differentiate ourselves in the marketplace."

54487 Postings, 5950 Tage LibudaGute Analyse, Kursziel übertrieben vorsichtig

kann man zu dem sagen, was man auf einem Ami-Board lesen konnte.

Von der Marktkapitalsiierung von 315 Millionen hat die Kasse und marktgängigen Wertpapiere abgzogen und ist bei 130 Millionen gelandet, die durch die 20 Beteiligungen (ohne Blackboard) abgedeckt sein müssten - vermutlich schafft das aber schon die wertvollste unter den 20 Beteiligungen, wie der Poster richtig anführt.

130Mio is the fair value for ICG Commerce alone.

Grasshopper Investments plc is acquiring GoIndustry AG for a
consideration that values the Enlarged Group at over £30m

!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!shorting ICGE can be dangerous!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Leider hat der Poster die anteiligen Umsätze nicht fertig ausgerechnet. Hier dies als Ergänzung:

72,75% von 58,62 Millionen = 42,6 Millionen

plus

40% von 178,256 Millionen = 71,3 Millionen

plus

37,5% von 19,2 Millionen = 7,2 Millionen

Das ergibt anteilige Umsätze von 121,1 Millionen. Die restlichen oft sehr kleinen knapp zehn weiteren Beteiligungen setze ich mit 9 Millionen an, sodass wir auf 130 Millionen kommen. Wir haben dann ein Kurs-Umsatz-Verhältnis von 1. Im Schnitt dürfte aber ein Wert zwischen 4 und 5 richtig sein.

wo sie 54% hielten, bzw soll im Rahmen eines Reverse Merger an die Börse AIM in London gebracht werden.

So richtig kann ich dem uny auch nicht helfen. Inbesondere weiss ich nicht ob die genannten 70 Millionen Aktien mit dem momentanen Kurs von kanpp 20 Pence bewertet werden müssen, oder ob die Verschmelzung von GoIndustry da noch nicht drinsteckt. Wenn das mit 20 Pence richtig wäre, wäre der Anteil mit etwas 20 bis 25 Millionen Dollar nicht gerade üppig bewertet.

Ach ja, das steht auch im Text:

Immediately following completion of the Acquisition, the ICG Parties will own 69,177,300 Ordinary Shares representing approximately 37.0 per cent. of the Company's issued ordinary share capital (assuming that allotment of all of the Initial Consideration Shares and all of the Initial Additional Shares takes place at Completion). Assuming that the allotment of all of the Further Consideration Shares and the Further Additional Shares takes place following publication of the Company's accounts for the financial year ending 31 December 2006, (and assuming that the ICG Parties have not disposed of any Ordinary Shares in the meantime and that the Company has not allotted any further Ordinary Shares in the period between Admission and such date), the ICG Parties will own 81,141,902 Ordinary Shares representing approximately 37.9 per cent. of the Company's issued ordinary share capital following allotment of the Further Consideration Shares and the Further Additional Shares.

Auf der anderen Seite muss man bedenken, dass ich dieses Unternehmen vor Monaten auch schon einmal völlig abgeschrieben hatte.

so where is the news on icge site? Like always these people are totally negligent in what is a duty: to inform shareholders. In my view icge management must be removed by shareholders!


Des Rätsel Lösung ist ziemlich einfach. Das Management, insbesondere der CEO Buckley, ist immer noch massiv auf der Kaufseite. Und zu niedrigen Kursen bekommt man eben für eine bestimmte Summe mehr Aktien. Dem Anleger kann es egal sein, ob die Kurse schnell oder langsam steigen. Für denjenigen, der noch nicht voll investiert ist, ist ein langsamer Anstieg von Vorteil.

 

13.12.05 19:27

54487 Postings, 5950 Tage LibudaAuch heute wieder ein Insiderkauft

und zwar nicht von irgendwem, sondern vom heimlichen neuen Chef von Internet Capital. Neben dem CEO Buckley und dem CFO Dolanksi ist vor gut einem Jahr ein ehemaliger Vize-Direktor von IBM, Michael Zisman, zu Internet Capital gestoßen. Der bekommt zwar ein Gehalt von über eine Million Dollar im Jahr und noch einige Nebengeräusche, hat aber sein Geld schon mehr als eingespielt, weil er sehr viel Positives, z.B. Freeborders, Metastorm und vermutlich auch die letzte Neuerwerbung eingefädelt hat.

http://www.insiderscoop.com/ViewFiling/...sionNo=0001181431-05-066338

Es ist zwar nicht die Welt, das er ca. 12.500 Aktien gekauft hat (da habe ich ein paar mehr) und 100.000 Dollar eingesetzt hat bei Kursen von 7,98 bzw. 8 Dollar. Aber andererseits wirft ein Insider auch keine 100.000 Dollar zum Fenster raus.

StarCite mit Zahlen

StarCite Reports Results For Q3 2005; On Pace To Deliver Nearly $2B In Revenue Opportunities; Meetings Marketplace Grows 50%



PHILADELPHIA--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Nov. 7, 2005--StarCite, Inc., the provider of On Demand Global Meeting Solutions(TM), today announced that the firm has provided hotels with nearly $493 million in meeting RFP opportunities in the third quarter of 2005. Commerce flowing through its Online Marketplace rose 50 percent compared to the same period in 2004. For the first time, StarCite delivered more than 100,000 gross Requests for Proposals to hotels in its database during the quarter. At the current pace, the company expects its growing user base to deliver nearly $2 billion in revenue opportunities to hotels by year-end.

"The growing value of the StarCite Marketplace is evident with record-setting numbers of meeting leads and revenue opportunities delivered to suppliers this quarter," said Mike Boult, President and CEO of StarCite, Inc., Philadelphia. "In the first nine months of 2005, StarCite has delivered more than $1.4 billion in revenue opportunities to suppliers in our database."

"During this time, StarCite has helped global corporations save millions of dollars by gaining the visibility and control of meetings necessary to most strategically manage this spend category," Boult added.

The world's largest online marketplace for meetings and events, the StarCite Marketplace delivered 11,366 unique RFPs in the third quarter, 48 percent more than the same quarter last year and 16 percent more than the prior quarter. Through the first nine months of 2005, StarCite delivered 31,276 unique RFPs worth $1.4 billion in revenue opportunities to hotels. Each RFP - defined as "unique" - is typically sent to multiple properties or chains for rate and availability, which results in a much larger gross RFP count through StarCite's marketplace.

StarCite Marketplace RFP Growth

The number of gross RFPs sent through the StarCite Online Marketplace rose 69 percent from the third quarter 2004 to 104,387. Tight demand and higher rates, particularly after Hurricanes Katrina and Rita, prompted the relocation of hundreds of meetings from the Gulf Coast. This led planners to source meetings to more hotels - to an average of 9.18 in the third quarter. These RFPs provided nearly 1.6 million room night leads to hotels, resulting in an average of 140 nights per lead.

On a daily basis, StarCite provides $7.8 million worth of lead opportunities to hotels in its database. These figures exclude private-label sites, which StarCite supplies to Starwood Hotels & Resorts Worldwide, Fairmont Hotels & Resorts, Omni Hotels, Hyatt Hotels and Resorts, and a number of other suppliers.

Increased Globalization of Corporate Deployments

During the quarter, StarCite closed more than 250 contracts with new or existing clients. StarCite signed three of its most comprehensive global technology and adoption management contracts to help Cisco Systems, Motorola and a financial services firm extend strategic meetings management initiatives. It also expanded relationships with Novo Nordisk, metroConnections and the National Association of Insurance Commissioners. New corporate customers include Unilever North America, CIGNA, CV Therapeutics, and a pharmaceutical firm.

On the supplier side, StarCite extended a contract to provide technology and online marketing to Starwood Hotels and Resorts Worldwide. StarCite also sold its solutions designed for convention and visitor bureaus to the Chicago Convention and Tourism Bureau; LA, Inc. the Convention and Visitors Bureau; Greater Fort Lauderdale Convention & Visitors Bureau; Greater Miami Convention & Visitors Bureau; Irving Convention & Visitors Bureau; and St. Augustine, Ponte Vedra & The Beaches Visitor and Convention Bureau.

On the international front, StarCite officially launched new marketing consortiums in Peru and Scandinavia. In Europe, it began a series of road shows to introduce suppliers to the power and lead generation potential of the StarCite Online Marketplace.

54487 Postings, 5950 Tage LibudaHeute noch in den USA kaufen

wenn man die Möglichkeit hat.

Denn der Shortseller hat meines Erachtens heute weitere 500.000 Stück leer verkauft, um zu zeigen, dass selbst Insiderkäufe des Technologiechefs von Internet Capital den Kurs nicht voranbringen. Wer rein will, sollte sein Geschenke annehmen. Lange blufft er nicht mehr mit Verkäufen von Stücken, die er noch nicht hat, denn das kann man nicht durchhalten.  

13.12.05 22:55

54487 Postings, 5950 Tage LibudaExtremste Insideraktion nutzen

die ich in meiner doch nun schon recht langen Börsenzeit erlebt habe. Das spielt ein Shortseller "Alles oder Nichts", wenn Ihr Euch das einmal anseht.

http://finance.yahoo.com/q?s=ICGE

Da sind in den letzten zehn Minuten fast eine Million Aktien auf einen Schlag verkauft worden. Normalerweise will ein Verkäufer noch einen einigermaßen akzeptablen Preis erreichen und verkauft über einen längeren Zeitraum veteilt. Dieser Verkauf lief gegen fundamental gute Nachrichten und mit dem Bestreben, einen möglichst niedrigen Preis zu bekommen.

Solche Geschenke kann man eigentlich nur annehmen. Wer noch drin ist und rein will, für den wird es morgen Zeit oder: Großkampftag.  

14.12.05 14:29

54487 Postings, 5950 Tage LibudaIch zitiere aus einer anderen Quelle

Zu etwas Erfreulichem:

Es gab in den letzten Tagen wieder einige " echte" Insiderkäufe bei ICGE:

Walter Buckley: Kauf von 7.500 Aktien zwischen $ 7,92 und $ 8,01
http://www.sec.gov/Archives/edgar/data/1085621/0001181431050...

Michael Zisman: Kauf von 12.500 Aktien zwischen $ 7,98 und $ 8,00
http://www.sec.gov/Archives/edgar/data/1085621/0001181431050...


Insbesondere der letzte Kauf scheint bei den Shortsellern gestern große Panik ausgelöst zu haben, denn sie haben, um diese Wirkungen zu neutralisieren, offensichtlich riesige Menge in der letzten halben Stunde leer verkauft und sich somit vermutlich weiter in die Scheisse geritten. Bei Michael Zismann handelt es sich um einen ehemaligen Vize-Direktor von IBM, der vor ca. 18 Monaten zu Internet Capital gestoßen ist und in dieser Zeit schon Erhebliches geleistet hat.
 

14.12.05 16:24

54487 Postings, 5950 Tage LibudaEs konnte eilen

wenn man noch billig rein will. Noch kommt man billiger rein als zuletzt die zwei von insgesamt drei Vorständen, die noch einmal nachgelegt haben. Das Geschenk des Shortsellers sollte man annehmen. Wer nur in Frankfurt handeln kann, für den eilt es langsam. Man sollte beim Limit so großzügig sein, dass es sich für den Skontrenführer in Frankfurt lohnt ein Gegengeschäft in den USA zu tätigen, um den Auftrag ausführen zu können.

sehr aussichtsreich. Ein Ausflug auf die nachstehende Adresse rentiert sich.

Wie bei anderen der 20 Beteiligungen von Internet Capital ist allerdings auch hier Geduld vonnöten - es geht stetig aufwärts, vielleicht nicht so sprunghaft wie mancher geträumt hat. Und auch das beackerte Geschäftsfeld ist logischerweise eine Nische. Aber so wie viele Peanuts eine Erdnussfarm ergeben, so dürften auch viele erfolgreiche Unternehmen, selbst wenn sie in Nischen etabliert sind, .......
