However all the numbers in the earnings call were based on close of business on September 30, 2014 before .attorney and .lawyer launched
Maybe the most interesting part of the earnings call was that only one stock annalist had a question. Typically during earnings call I have listened to there are a ton of big investment firms that have questions about the company which to me means very few stock firms are following the company.
Disclaimer my company Worldwide Media, Inc owns some shares in Rightside.
