Is this all TomG or is there other news out there on this company
Somebody bought like 171,000 shares: https://ledgergazette.com/2017/12/18/insider-buying-appian-c…
But I’m surprised that would move it 20%. It’s 2 or 3% of the float, though. Not chump change.
who still doesn’t know what low-code software even means
My thoughts on this now-28+% single-day pop for Appian can be found elsewhere within Fooldom. Many here can probably access that location.
I will say nothing else of it here, but I will provide the following link and state that $53/year is complete chump change compared to potential value that can be gleaned if one intelligently uses the service for what it provides as a source of information. Combining multiple sources of information is key.
Note: I have received no compensation in any manner for posting this here, I do not work for the Motley Fool (although I may try writing some articles and submitting them someday), and I do not yet own any position in Appian (see also: posts 34949 and 34950 here on this board).
I used to write software (now they call that “hand-coding”), but I had never heard of low-code, either. It lets you write an application with a graphic user interface (GUI). The same thing happened with building web pages, which used to be hand coded in HTML, but now it’s done quicker and more easily with a GUI.

When small stocks are recommended, they do tend to jump, that catches the eye of the market and chartists can pile in. A gene-splcing stock was recommended on a Friday night and I suspected it was going to take a large jump Monday. I found out too late on Friday but I put in a larger than average order for before hours Monday and it hit. Sure enough in the open market it really moved.
Fortunately I was in Appian thanks to Tom’s note on this board along with some other good write-ups. Got lucky on the timing, now I have a cushion.
