We said TiVo (TIVO) had a great product but lousy financial management because the company has never made a dime. We did not think TIVO had a shot in England of hitting loss estimates for ($0.13) per share this quarter. We were wrong but we have not changed our opinion on shorting this stock, which gained 2% for the week. Despite a 22% increase in revenue to $82 million, TIVO posted a huge net loss of ($10) million, or ($0.09) per share. The only reason TIVO beat the loss estimate was a large increase in share count to 121.4 million (an increase in shares lowers the loss per share). That gives TIVO a market cap of $1.6 billion, or five times sales, which is ridiculous for a company that never makes any money. Management gave guidance for the next quarter of service and technology revenues in the range of $68 – $70 million, and another net loss of ($13) – ($16) million. Why is this company even public?
Following is the table for the week ahead:
