8x8, Inc. Calls Win Again

The shares have collapsed in price, so I thought I'd review it again because a $6.90 stock is far less risky than a $14 stock. Still not worth it. The problem is that the disconnect between sales and net income persists. Sales are great, but they're meaningless if they don't lead to profits. For those who insist on staying long here, I think call options are the safest alternative. The calls I recommended previously did far less badly than the stock.
