  • Good move today. Conf. call was positive in that Joe reaffirmed the est. revenue details from the Aug 7th call. Seems plausible we would have at least $25M sales in cy15 given auto and aero design wins ramping up; stock price follows $20+ by this time next year. If E-class comes later, all is 2x-3x.

    E-ink litigation interesting wild card, could bonus us particularly if we make them a licensee. That tech is bi-stable, reflective (no backlight thus low/no power) and is made in a film, all is our tech.

    IMO. Best of luck to us.

    Iglass

    by allrefr Oct 2, 2014 1:05 PM

    Never heard CEO say 3Q profitability. Did hear that that would be when the first revenues from S-Class would hit. Daimler is only producing 15,000 vehicles, then in mid-2015 it will be over 100,000.

    Iglass hasn't even hit the radar. The "world" has never heard of them, much less REFR's SPD. Look at the low volume every day. Looks to me that some new funds might be coming in after the last couple of presentations. Then there are the short sellers who mouth off every time the stock has a loss.

    What's happening now is enough for profitability by mid-2015 (depends on the take rate of the S-Coupe, which I expect to be high given that they are choosing climate control in the vehicle and will save on mileage. So I focus on the E-Class coming on board (they are 45% of sales for Mercedes luxury models) and then some announcement from another auto OEM like BMW. But Iglass won't be contributing much in the near term. Several licensees are working at their own pace and don't announce events since that will let their competitors in on the game plan.

    "Safe Bet"

    by threespeech Oct 6, 2014 10:43 AM

    The "market" is not involved in REFR except for a few funds that have increased and decreased positions. The short interest is 1.6 million on a stock with no volume. Shorts have no way out but to use long and short positions to help cover. They have to buy more back than Neil Goldman has invested over the last couple of years. Not going to happen.

    "Safe Bet"

    by threespeech Oct 6, 2014 10:43 AM

    Shorts are a result of not being able to cover since the stock hit lows in 2008. Never saw much action for the next 5 years. Now it's up to the shorts to cover before S-Class revenues start now and go on through mid-2015. Shorts and traders are trying in vain to make it drop, but buyers come in and bring it back up again. New pattern never seen for 5 years.

    That short position has 44 days to cover, if they buy every share traded every day for the next month. They are already suffering a loss, high margins because the stock is hard to borrow. They're just trying everything they can before the big numbers come in the next 6 months. Impossible.

    Sentiment: Strong Buy

  • It commonly happens in stock investing that investors miss the chance of buying winning stocks that they knew would stand out. Before they take the plunge, others get to know the hidden potential and enter into these stocks, pushing them out of reach.

    So, instead of repenting, spotting the off-the-radar potential winners and immediately investing in them could be a smart decision.

    One such company that looks well positioned for a solid gain, but has been overlooked by investors lately, is Research Frontiers Inc. (REFR). This electric products stock has actually seen estimates rise over the past month for the current fiscal year by about 41.7%. But that is not yet reflected in its price, as the stock lost 0.2% over the same time frame.

    You should not be concerned about the price remaining muted going forward. This year’s expected earnings growth over the prior year is 44%, which should ultimately translate into price appreciation.

    And if this isn’t enough, REFR currently carries a Zacks Rank #2 (Buy) which further underscores the potential for its outperformance (See the performance of Zacks' portfolios and strategies here: About Zacks Performance).

    So if you are looking for a stock flying under-the-radar that is well-equipped to bounce down the road, make sure to consider Research Frontiers. Solid estimate revisions and an impressive Zacks Rank suggest that better days may be ahead for REFR and that now might be an interesting buying opportunity.

    View vs SPD

    by cyberne Sep 22, 2014 12:11 PM

    One sells glass and one developed SPD nanotech, which licensee Hitachi Chemical has put in a film that produced 4.3 million square feet a year. This film is used by enormous glass companies like Asahi, Pilkington to be used in the automotive industry for panoramic roofs. REFR then collects 10-15% royalty on the net sale price of the final product.

    What does "View" do to match that?

    View vs SPD

    by cyberne Sep 22, 2014 12:11 PM

    Of course you have it from the direct work of architects. And when the cost of SPD drops — it already has dramatically — those same architects will be using SPD because of its far superior capabilities.

    Face it, XD. You lost. None of the longs are buying your BS. It's time for you to find a new promising technology to trash.

    Iglass isn't the licensee to watch. It's in the pipeline and is not having trouble, that's just your speculation. Mercedes took 7 years to get a product they are now putting as an option on 3 models.

    Will shorts cover before the fee revenue from now until Q2 2015? Doesn't look likely. It's all coming from automotive and it's already started.

    Daimler owns the product Magic Sky Control. It's their way to lower co2 emissions and to be a step above the competition with climate control. They are expanding use and it will be in all their luxury vehicles. They pay Asahi and Pilkington the check and Asahi and Pilkington pay REFR.

    Shorts throwing everything against the wall to see if it will stick. How high is this next Short Interest report out Friday. Covering with volume like we had this week is going to be tough.

    Present Valuation

    by cyberne Nov 8, 2014 2:09 PM

    2015 sales won't have kicked in totally by 4th quarter. You have 15,000 selling in the third and fourth quarter of this year. Then you have the 115,000-145,000 that won't hit the revenue stream until 2015 1st and 2nd quarter.Company said the total potential revenue for the S-Class is 17 million to 36 million Then you add in the E-Class and you have triple that.

    Sentiment: Strong Buy

  • It is slow - will be increasing at increasing rate going forward.

    Present Valuation

    by cyberne Nov 8, 2014 2:09 PM

    Bugsy,

    You should tell your boss not to send you to the message boards when you don't know what you're talking about. Stock was strong with Dow down 160 points. The short position is bleeding money on this since the cost of holding a short position on REFR is a very high interest rate.

    First came on this board to see who posts after a dump of shares and here you are. Busted and broke.
    Better skip the holiday gifts for the kids this year and probably for the rest of this decade. S-Class is going in to full production soon and the Daimler is advertising it with Magic Sky Control. It's listed in almost every article and the opinions are that it is a must have option.

    REFR doesn't take the royalty from the film. The SPD infrastructure starts with emulsion and film makers. Then it moves to the Tier 1 licensees who develop products for autos, airplanes, mass transit and architectural projects. That's why the royalties on the S-Class are $150-$250.

    First you need to know that the companies are there to buy and sell new products. Those sales directly affect the future royalties that will be paid to REFR. Some may have already been sold. They have no choice. Biotechs file every time they have another trial starting, and REFR files when a licensee has developed a new product.

    But what about making hedge funds have full disclosure on how many shares they have shorted? Full disclosure.

    RFI issues press releases for each trade show as a way to get needed exposure for a new technology at no cost. You make it sound as if it's a negative. I see it as more and more people finding out about SPD, and that would be positive.
