Tungsten shares have plummeted as some investors have expressed their doubts over the business model, strength over their balance sheet as well as unrealistic expectations to capture 40% of the online invoice financing market. Several hedge funds have been reported to have shorted the stock with chatter rife on prominent share investor bulletin boards.

Tree.com is a marketplace providing consumers access to businesses and professionals when searching for financial products and real estate. The company reported 4Q2014 net income of $15.6m after reporting a loss in the same period a year earlier. 

OnDeck shares have climbed 7.38%. They become first listed P2P lender to have announced 4Q2014 results. Revenue in 4Q2014 was $50.5m. They expect revenue to increase $258m for 2015 which would be 63.3% more than the $158m they reported for 2014. We expect Lending Club to announce their result Tuesday 03/03/2015.
