Tucows (TCX) – Keep an eye on this stock Jags! Name that never appears on my radar. Trades only 29 contracts on average day. Unusual leap bullish risk reversal bought today:

– 600 Feb’17 22.5 puts sold to open for $2.10 credit
– 600 Feb’17 25 puts sold to open for $3.15 credit
– 600 Feb’17 30-strike calls bought to open for $1.10 debit

Implied volatility jumped sharply by 16.8% as trade went off. Tough to find any good research on this under the radar $260 million small cap. Based in Toronto, Canada, the company provides Domain Services and Access Services. The Network Access Services segment is engaged in the sale of retail mobile phones and services (Ting Mobile) to individuals and small businesses through the Ting Website, as well as other network access services, including high speed Internet access, Internet hosting and network consulting services. Highlights from prior quarter released on May 9:

– Q1 EPS $0.42 vs. $0.30 estimate, big beat
– Q1 Revenues $56.6M vs. $47.1M estimate, big beat
– Q1 Revenues +13% YoY
– Announced $40M share buyback, 15.3% of float

Only two analysts follow the stock, Cantor and Sidoti, and neither of them have provided updated analysis since August 2015. In other words, published consensus view on Yahoo Finance or any website you look at can’t simply be relied upon. Estimates have not moved higher for 9 months despite major beat last 3 quarters. On June 1, TCX’s Ting announced opening of its crazy high speed gigabit fiber network in Holly Springs, North Caroilna. Construction to begin before the end of the summer. Holly Glen area homes to be connected by the end of this year. 1,000 megabit per second. More on this HERE.
