Stockhouse is my guilty pleasure:

Remember, 9 months ago, the stock was 50% lower than it it today (~$8) so clearly Avigilon is making progress. On the other hand, the new 'normal' lower growth rates and questions of how much more operational efficiencies can deliver is going to constrain the stock price.

Avigilon closed out trading today at $16.00 even:

Not a bad 1-day jump, though it was up ~16% shortly after opening, so the initial surge did not carry through the day.

Out of curiosity, John, do you, or any IPVM staff own any security industry stock?

Charlie, I do not now, nor have I, nor would I in the future, ever own any security industry stock or any stock in any company we cover, whether public nor private. 

I've asked the same of all who work at IPVM though I do not monitor their personal financial holdings.

That is great to know. Thanks!

I do not.

I do not either.

Me neither.

How long will I have to wait until Ace sells his shares and replies? :)

Ethan is off today.

Suffice to say, we take even the perception of conflict of interest seriously. It is the same reason we do not offer any 'services' to manufacturers, etc.

Nor do I

If any of them owned any Avigilon stock I am pretty certain the coverage of them would be a bit different than it has been the past few years.

If any of them owned any Avigilon stock I am pretty certain the coverage of them would be a bit different than it has been the past few years.

This indirectly brings up another element. It's not just about being long in a stock, it's possible to short publicly traded companies.

I do not now, nor have I, nor would I in the future, ever short any security industry stock or any stock in any company we cover.

Buying and selling stock in the security industry would be stressful enough to cause increased money spent on therapy.:)  I'll stick with my conservative investments that make me a decent return with the rollercoaster ride.
