Not wrong, just amused at the lengths you go to cover your short position. LC switches on/off and does not absorb heat. It is no competition but can be used with SPD to make smartglass products. The BMW Cool Shade is an example of that.
Sentiment: Strong Buy
Coming soon to the great state of Texas....
A company that will be producing film for Smart Glass...
In the form of Liquid Crystal...
The ONLY domestic producer of smart glass film....
Will Joe license them to produce SPD film? (Who will buy the SPD film?) I know something even the cheerleaders don't know....but I promised not to tell...and if they know, Joe has disclosed non public information.
Or will liquid crystal dominate the US and North American smart glass market?
Sonte is marketing a wide range of Z control products...including a LC film that will sell for less than $30.00/sq.ft....lots less than SPD. Coming very soon. And I saw the demo, first hand, of the LC. It switches in the blink of an eye.
I'd say just as fast as the MSC on the SL that I had as a demo about a month ago.
You insider cheerleaders can "bully" that I'm wrong--but I know what I have seen. LC is going to be
a major challenger in the architectural market, possibly aerospace, and maybe domestic auto.
It doesn't matter what Joe does or does not do with the new smart film producer....REFR has a flawed business model. REFR is no Qualcomm....it's more of a ParkerVision.
I suspect the coming two quarters will be revenue "disappointments" with a generous serving of excuses and failed accountability by management.
Ahh...same old same old from REFR....million dollar per quarter losses.
Sentiment: Strong Sell
Have no idea. Some models of the S-Class won't be out until 2015. All I see is growing infrastructure and the commercialization of SPD glass for luxury class. Won't be long now as Mercedes is a major user and developer of SPD glass products including side windows.
Sentiment: Strong Buy
Mister Lester.....how much fee income from S-Class MSC sales do you think will hit RF's books in the 2nd and 3rd quarters of this year?
The roofs are being manufactured right now. The ringing of the NASDAQ closing bell was done on the day the S-Coupe went into production. The glass suppliers are going to be collecting their revenues on the S-Coupe now and have 45 days to pay REFR the royalties due.
Sentiment: Strong Buy
'The S-Class Coupé features a panoramic roof extending over two-thirds of the entire vehicle roof; with a surface area of around 1.2 m2, it appears almost 150 percent larger than on the predecessor model. MAGIC SKY CONTROL (optional extra, expected to be available from the third quarter of 2014) makes it possible to switch the transparency of the roof at the push of a button, from light to dark.'
Looks like SPD will not be available until the THIRD QUARTER of this year.
Not that there is anything new that has not been rehashed by shareholders and critics alike over and over throughout the years. Although the author and his supporters are banking on the original price to stay the same. We already know that has changed. Not expecting 100% take rate either. Just a gradual buildup as more models come on line.
What it has done is introduce spd technology to a larger number of potential investors and shorts as well. Maybe it will call Joe to the carpet...... who knows. Will he protect shareholder's backs or will management hunker down to the safe confines of the bunker once again. If Joe wants to be considered the leader of this company it is time he steps forward with facts. Cost was always blown off when the topic brought up. Now all of a sudden it is important. Investors are more aware of what is going on than what Joe gives them credit for with his remarks.
We know that major aerospace players are requiring total blackout for some reason. Don't know why, but hey if that is what they want.
We know the auto industry is more price conscious with faster tint speed requirements.
As a shareholder I have no problem with the SA article.
Yes, Yes cyberne "the end is at hand for the REFR shorts." And you are an idiot.
Other penny stock promoters in REFR's employ said the same thing for the past twenty years.......the shorts did fine. Of course you know that the biggest short position is held by the REFR insiders as a hedge against the value of the basket of REFR shares they award themselves every year. A good solid hedging strategy; I approve. But not to great for any moron who would buy into thsi transparent fraud. If REFR was a taco stand it would be condemned......
Bard, Lester, whatever "strong buy" phony IDs you are using these days, your mantra is always the same; great things will be happening, "I would hate to be short REFR this weekend,"""Boeing ,NASA (you name it) is in negotiations with IAS, a broken down REFR "licensee" somewhere in Florida to put somtething on a plane, train, or automobile. (It has never happened,except for one offs that REFR paid to have done.
This is one of the longest running stock selling scams on Wall Street. Nobody covers REFR because a firm couldn't even justify giving the assignment to a summer intern.
Those of us who shorted this fraud when it was 20+ 12 yars ago did so knowing that not a single product would ever bring substantial (if any at all) earnings to the bottom line. This company is overloaded with executive compensation packages, stock giveaways and a phony R&D buget that has many idiot nephews on as consultants whatever.
If you invest in thois scam you deserve to watch yourt investment grind down to zero.
You really need to read those licenses, Ducks.
