Three: A couple of things. One, I know that I am much older than you and if anything is going to finally make this stock move it had better happen soon. Secondly, why would any of the insiders feel that they had to buy stock on the open market when they all get a good number of shares yearly for NOTHING. If we could only participate in this bonanza.
but I hate the thought of Joe giving away 5 years of competition to jump start spd in the auto market. Sounds like a desperate move to give in to MB, however he probably didn't have much of a choice. Just like everything else associated with this company, once again the same old phrase....."we'll see". The only problem is by the time we get to that point I may be to old "to see".
Couple things that have bothered me, on which I never really mattered for me in the past, is that as we supposedly draw nearer to increasing revenues (and possible profitability....can't believe I said that), recently the sp went down to the mid $4's and not one single insider jumped on that opportunity. Does that tell us anything.....don't know, but you would think as we draw closer to an anticipated rising sp?
Second thing coming from today's presentation, the median price per sq/ft has come down considerably since 2011 but still is way too high, particularly for the architectural market. Still a barrier for increased adoption by oems.
All I know is that there has been speculation about BMW for the past 5 years. They have shown spd on concept cars over that time but nothing. We shall soon see if they are ready to s--- or get off the pot.
I can't deny that possibility, since all RFI agreements appear to be confidential, at least in some important aspects. Joe did, however, give many broad hints in the intervening years that other auto makers were about to follow MB's lead. That includes the very first conference call after the introduction.
You have given me something to think about Zavier. I had always thought it possible, since no others OEMs have come on board since MB 4-l/2 years ago, that REFR may have given MB a five year exclusive. Now we know that Lincoln Continental will have SPD next year after the five years is up. It may be, for once, that I might have been right and if so things may be looking up.
If sales are on an upward trajectory, and profitability is at hand, what is Joe doing flogging the stock again at the Craig-Hallum conference?
Shouldn't he be conferencing with the execs of one of the rumored/alleged/imagined auto makers coming onboard? More than four and a half years it has been since the MB introduction.
Market conditions notwithstanding, what is of particular interest to me is the fact that we have a CEO of a company in which it's technology has taken hold in at least one market, stating that they will no longer need to issue additional stock to finance the company. So this should Indicate that revenues will begin to exceed expenses. He also indicated that another market is beginning to catch a foothold. So, when most "trusted" CEO's state similar projections the sp begins a gradual ascent in advance as the market anticipates positive results. I could go on an on about the revised expectations by individuals and investment websites, but the fact remains that this company "gets no love" and that this is a referendum on the market's opinion of RFI's management and the leading of an investment community through a vast wilderness for close to thirty years of "ifs" , "ands", "buts", oh, and "we know but we can't say".
Also, with investors being told the automotive market is the main target, it is still early, but it seems we may be a shutout of the Frankfurt auto show. A market that we are suppose to depend on to increase exposure and revenues. Like I said it is still early.
Tv news in Seattle on Sept 2, 2015 showed a Boeing 757 being destroyed for recycling. Before it was crushed, it flew as an "Ecodemonstrator" testing new green technology. The video clip showed windows being tested in flight, with the engineer stating that these were sunlight harvesting windows where the electricity gained from the built in solar panels could be used to dim the windows and power an outlet to charge a cell phone.
Sounds like the Vision Systems Energia window to me.
I'm still here, and have increased my position about 10 percent over the past month at prices under $5.20 -- thanks very much to the shorts for that -- but I've just been way too busy to pay much attention to the lawsuit.
I checked the case filings not long ago, and see than both sides have submitted their claims constructions briefs. I haven't downloaded them yet because I don't know when I'll have time to study them. I'm also waiting for the Court's judgment on the film patent's validity.
A couple of oral orders and one redacted document were filed recently, so confidentiality seems to be playing a larger role than it did in the early stages.
I still hold to my position that settlement talks aren't likely until the validity judgment and claims constructions decisions are issued. If the Court sticks to the announced schedule, the constructions decision won't arrive until January.
Hope this helps!
Bard of Avon, you have not posted for some time. Hope you are still interested in REFR. New dockets with access to documents available.
Any thoughts you would care to share?
One stock that might be an intriguing choice for investors right now isResearch Frontiers Inc.(REFR). This is because this security in the Industrial Electrical Equipment space is seeing solid earnings estimate revision activity, and is in great company from a Zacks Industry Rank perspective.
This is important because, often times, a rising tide will lift all boats in an industry, as there can be broad trends taking place in a segment that are boosting securities across the board. This is arguably taking place in the Industrial Electrical Equipment space as it currently has a Zacks Industry Rank of 63 out of more than 250 industries, suggestin g it is well-positioned from this perspective, especially when compared to other segments out there.
Meanwhile, Research Frontiers is actually looking pretty good on its own too. The firm has seen solid earnings estimate revision activity over the past month, suggesting analysts are becoming a bit more bullish on the firm’s prospects in both the short and long term.
In fact, o ver the past month, current quarter estimates have narrowed from a loss of 4 cents per share to a loss of 2 cents per share, while current year estimates have narrowed from a loss of 15 cents per share to a loss of 8 cents per share. This has helped REFR to earn a Zacks Rank #2 (Buy), further underscoring the company’s solid position.
So, if you are looking for a decent pick in a strong industry, consider Research Frontiers. Not only is its industry currently in the top third, but it is seeing solid estimate revisions as of late, suggesting it could be a very interesting choice for investors seeking a name in this great industry segment.

You have that right. One has to have nerves of steel to be in the market. Everything changed for the individual investor when high speed trading machines entered the picture. That took any chance away for us as every stock on the markets are controlled by the programmers. Sadly, for us, when there is an outside chance that for the first time in the history of refr this quarter, or the next, could produce its first profitable quarter and all the pps does is go down. Regardless of how the markets are taking a dive, in the old days the price of our stock would have soared because of this. It just goes to prove that the little guy doesn't have much of a chance and the big boys will make a fortune on what is going on.
