    Management: Why no dividend or just sell co to Apple OR Google

    They have such good technology, so much cash, but can make the stock price for so low so long. The Chairman and his bother own most (more than 2/3 I guess), why do not care???

    • truth hurts doesn't it sissy! good luck on getting those 6.50 shares back to even money one day

    • They do care about CNTF.

      Butshort term temporary low stock prices aren't their main concern !

      The long term health of the Company and the long term strategy to return the Company revenues to previous levels is what their main concern is.

      If they do that job well (work on returning revenues to normal), than the stock price will take care of itself.

      Throwing millions and millions of dollars at investors right now, in the form of
      stock buy backs or dividends, when the economy is the worst in the past 75 yrs, would be foolish.

      Especially when nobody knows for sure when this economic downturn will be over, or if it is going to get worse or not.

      Under those economic conditions, no sensible Company throws tens of millions of dollars at shareholders just to put a temporary band-aid on the stock price.

      Good thing you are not a Doctor !!

      Your remedy for a serious injury bleeding injury, would be to quickly put a temporary quick fix band aid on a gaping wound instead of fixing the real,problem. Making a patient completely healthy again should be the goal, not temporary band aids that would further risk the health of the patient.

      I hope you never work in the Medical field !!

      • your wrong good companies like apple and microsoft even in bad times did just that stock buy backs and when the price rose years later they rewarded shareholder with either a split or a dividend.

        since this price is a joke no split, no dividend... logic says remove shares from street show confidence your mgting right in the so called worst of times and show you think the value of cash on hand is better used to show support in the very company that pays your salary..

        so your wrong... to hide and sit on cash and cry about hard times is not there job as a public company if they want hide go private.

    • want CNTF to do a share buy back or dividend payment at a time when:

      1) CNTF is experiencing and trying to recover from the worst economic downturn of the past 75 years

      2) CNTF is struggling with what they describe as the worst economic climate their Company has ever seen.

      3) CNTF is trying to recover from huge decreases in demand for their product due to the economy

      4) CNTF is attempting to recover from a huge 50% hit to their revenues.

      5) CNTF is trying to operate in a national (Chinese) economy that just experienced a devastating 70% decrease in economic growth.

      6) CNTF for the first time in its history is now burning through cash savings due to revenue losses (even though it is a very low cash burn rate).

      7) CNTF is unsure when the economic climate will improve (as are all Companies in the US and China), and when full economic recovery may occur.

      8) The price of oil is skyrocketing now (again), which increases costs for all companies and further damages profits and revenues.

      9) The USA is facing what is called - "AN ECONOMIC CLIFF" this coming January when HUGE and ENORMOUS budget cuts become mandatory.
      The worldwide effects of that are unknown, but if the USA does experience this ECONOMIC CLIFF, the worldwide recession will get worse, not better.

      10) some of CNTFs best customer nations are facing much much worse economic conditions in the near future.

      • Why not a share buy back or divi, I thought you were the pumper who told us all that they have enough operating cash on hand for 200 or so years. Why not decrease share count and increase share price or do a give back. I am personally not a fan of dividends until there are positive earnings for years but something to get the pps rising at this stage would be welcome. Also, do you know what accounting/auditing firms they use. Very important with these Chinese comp.
