    With today’s 15% pop just staring you in the face, it would be tempting for current MeetMe Inc. (NYSEMKT:MEET) shareholders to lock their profit in and walk away. It would also be a mistake, though. See, while MEET is admittedly a volatile mess in the short run, for the long haul, there’s a lot more upside left to tap.

With today’s big move, MeetMe shares have cleared a key hurdle, and they’ve done so for all the right reasons. Investors who’ve been cautiously waiting on the sidelines may want start wading in now.
