I really don't understand the 5% fuss about TiVo's
In case you've been in the dark on the investing angle here, we're not talking about something like Apple's
To judge by our own community's unscientific poll, there are a lot of folks out there hoping that TiVo will get above $10 per share again. I think that might take a 1-for-3 reverse split.
Long-term, I believe TiVo will continue to do what it's always done. Lose a lot of money, and not just accounting numbers, but real, live cash. Unfortunately, shareholders have been losing their shirts too. This thing's been a nightmare.
Given the fact that execs are jumping ship with flimsy excuses, I still think there's much more risk here than reward. With competition coming from virtually everywhere, including the cable companies, partner-gone-wild DirecTV

- Rick Munarriz says that TiVo will bounce back, and makes other predictions.
