    Good to hear. Thanks for the update.
    Caught quick a Boss show...what an ending run there for the US stadium shows. 4+ hours!
    Great W by the Birds too. My Bucs took care of business as well, so besides the small (temporarily) lull with PRTS, all is right!

    I ended up flying in to Pitt to catch that one and he didn't disappoint . Did you hit a philly show?

    Saw about 6 innngs of a horrible Pirates game ( wanted to see the stadium so missed the birds, but pleasantly surprised with the results )

    great show, with lots of Rising stuff added for 9/11

    ^Thanks for the update. Looks like finally unloaded. Was thinking of costing down at these prices the last week or so. Sitting at an average of about $3.80. Thoughts?
    Earnings coming out shortly, no?

    5 Retail Stocks to Buy on Buoyant September Sales

    by Tirthankar Chakraborty Published on October 17, 2016 |
    S PRTS HD AAPL CAKE DAVE DKS TMUS



    Shoppers have a free rein now after restricted spending in the third quarter. Official data show that retail sales picked up in September after a nominal decline in August. Surge in motor vehicle purchases and gas stations gains mostly helped revive sales.All in all, 10 out of 13 major retail categories showed gains, with restaurants, furniture stores and building supply outlets showing solid increases. A combination of steady jobs growth, modest uptick in wages and an increase in household net worth laid the foundation for consumer spending. Hence, it will be prudent to add fundamentally sound stocks from the retail sector.
    U.S. Auto Parts Network, Inc. (PRTS - Free Report) operates as an online retailer of aftermarket auto parts and accessories, mainly in the United States. The company’s – a Zacks Rank #2 stock – estimated earnings growth rate for this year is 275%. U.S. Auto Parts Network has also been on an upward trend over the past 60 days, as estimates have risen from 5 cents/share to 7 cents right now. US AUTO PARTS Price and Consensus

    Is this guy just a constant basher, or what?

    sbaker
    $PRTS recent downgrade by Roth Capital leads me to think earnings won't be very good next week. $2 here we come.

    sbaker
    $PRTS the analyst has a $73.47M revenue estimate for Q3. I bet they won't reach $72.50M and would be lucky to break even and not lose money.

    U.S. Auto Parts Reports Third Quarter 2016 Results

    CARSON, Calif., Nov. 1, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- U.S. Auto Parts Network, Inc. (PRTS), one of the largest online providers of aftermarket automotive parts and accessories, reported results for the third quarter ended October 1, 2016. All information and data excludes AutoMD unless specifically noted.
    Third Quarter 2016 Financial Highlights vs. Year-Ago Quarter

    • Net sales up 4% to $73.5 million
    • Gross margin increased 80 basis points to 30.5%
    • Net income remained relatively flat at $0.4 million, or $0.01 per diluted share
    • Adjusted EBITDA (a non-GAAP measure defined below) increased 10% to $3.1 million
    • Ended the quarter with no revolver debt compared to $8.3 million at October 3, 2015

    Third Quarter 2016 Operational Highlights vs. Year-Ago Quarter

    • Total online orders increased by 12% to 846,000 orders
    • Conversion increased 10 basis points to 1.9%

    Management Commentary
    "Q3 marks our third consecutive quarter of GAAP profitability, driven by the continued focus on our higher-margin private label business," said Shane Evangelist, CEO of U.S. Auto Parts. "In fact, private label sales increased 12%, which led to an 80 basis point improvement in gross margin. We also maintained our net cash position during the quarter with a zero balance on our revolver debt. As we close out the year, we plan to continue to execute our profitability initiatives and carry this momentum into 2017."
    Third Quarter 2016 Financial Results
    Net sales in the third quarter of 2016 increased 4% to $73.5 million compared to $70.6 million in the year-ago quarter. The increase was largely driven by a 21% increase in online marketplace sales to $19.0 million.
    Gross profit in the third quarter of 2016 increased 7% to $22.4 million compared to $21.0 million in the year-ago quarter. As a percentage of net sales, gross profit increased 80 basis points to 30.5% compared to 29.7% in the year ago quarter. The increase in gross margin was primarily driven by a higher mix of private label sales, which were 65% of net sales compared to 60% in the year-ago quarter. The increase was also driven by freight and warehouse supplies savings.
    Total operating expenses in the third quarter were $21.7 million compared to $20.4 million in the year-ago quarter. As a percentage of net sales, operating expenses were 29.6% compared to 28.9% in the year ago quarter.
    Net income in the third quarter was $0.4 million, or $0.01 per diluted share, which was relatively flat compared to the year-ago quarter.
    Adjusted EBITDA in the third quarter of 2016 increased 10% to $3.1 million compared to $2.8 million in the year-ago quarter.
    At October 1, 2016, cash and cash equivalents totaled $5.2 million compared to $1.5 million at January 2, 2016. The Company also had no revolver debt at October 1, 2016 compared to $11.8 million at January 2, 2016.
    Key Operating Metrics
    Q3 2016 Q3 2015 Q2 2016
    Conversion Rate 1 1.89 % 1.75 % 1.80 %
    Customer Acquisition Cost 1 $ 7.61 $ 7.65 $ 7.54
    Unique Visitors (millions) 1 28.4 29.3 30.2
    Number of Orders - E-commerce only (thousands) 537 511 544
    Number of Orders - Online Marketplace (thousands) 309 244 315

    Bloody day. Rumor on StockTwits, althoguh I haven't seen filings to back it up:

    $PRTS selling could be from activist investor Cannell Capital dumping it's remaining shares. No one left to buy.

    I don't think that's the case
    I believe there was some disappointment , since some were expecting a stock buyback to be announced
    Still checking around , but if I'm right we bounce right back up
    Stock is very cheap here
