They said, SCMM is a basic investment and schould
be in every technology partfolio, because of thiere
growth potential with card reading and pay tv.

Smartcard technology is slowly getting
recognition, to include SCMM, and the potential growth rate
for this business is enorm.
Hpier, I just loaded
up with some more and I have an avg price
@$96.75. I garuantee we will see this again and I still
(STRONGLY) that we will see $120 by the
earnings announcement. SCMM is at $90.75 now and they will
continue their ascent until the EXPLOSIVE earnings report.
Again, Shuttle Tech brought atleast .05 per share.
SLAP- S,L&P---Stay LOOOOONG and Prosper. We will see
the next Microsoft in Smartcard Tech with
Smartcards are used in Europe for medical records
already, everybody with a bank account has a cash chip on
his card that allows him to pay without having to
enter a PIN-code (equivalent to cash, the amount stored
on that chip is typically limited to a few 100$$.
Smartcards are being introduced to pay theater, public
transportation, everything. Don't judge by the presence of such
cards in the US. Dangerous!
Perhaps because credit cards and other forms of
transfer had no infrastructure in Asia, there was a void
in which smart cards could blossom. There is an
airport being built in (Malaysia or Indonesia as I
remember) in which the entire payroll is being done via
smart card. Acceptance in Europe has also been much
faster than the US.
I am not sure whether smart
cards will prove to be the primary solution. I remember
an Italian movie in the 60s in which transfers were
done by a handprint read to a central data file where
the transaction was recorded to accompany the
physical transfer at the transaction site. Smart cards
will still require some proof positive to succeed.
With the Internet it might be that the transactions
can all be done without a card, just a retina scan or
a read of the electrical field around the body's
sweat glands or a hand print or, well you get the
The primary role of the smart card would be to
provide a portable data file of almost any content you
can imagine - identification, medical records, etc.
However, in the end the Internet might render all such
data files redundant except those which you would not
want hacked, such as the plans for building a germ
Of course not..but you cant get in here and bring
the numbers from today.....Microsoft started very
small and not with millions
but i also think that you cant compare scm with ms in
80s...that would be nice of
course....but it WOULD
The run-up that we just recently went through is
gone except a couple of points. The reason is because
tech stocks on the whole ALL went down. A large
block-10000- was just bought at close @$86. This has only
strengthened my position with SCMM. Tomorrow we will see the
90's again-IMHO- and we will see a continuous incline
of the stock price until earnings are posted
(.32-.35) on the 24th. SCMM is the stock of the year 2000!
I just loaded up with some more shares today and I
will be leveraging everything I have except my family.
This is how much faith I have in SCMM and this is the
next Microsoft in SMARTCARD TECHNOLOGY. But if
searchnsniff would like to compare SCMM to MSFT, that is OK
with me. I also believe we will see $150 in the very
near future and maybe even $200. I am very optimistic
with SCMM. Searchnsniff, you should join the longs and
You should not compare the current MSFT with the
current SCMM. Look at MSFT's numbers 15 years ago. Do you
know what smartcards
are good for? Well, obviously
you are doing secure internet transactions by waving
your mouse. To compare smartcards with mice or just
another periphery is ridiculous. This is like having a
teller machine at home. Finally, online transactions
will be safe and even tiny amounts of money can be
transferred safely via the net at low costs. This is why this
stock goes up and not because of the overwhelming
number of naive shareholders, as you think. My opinion.
So, there smart card reader can plug into the
back of a pc and be recognized by the MSFT operating
system, just like a MOUSE. What a novel concept!!! So can
every other smart card reader (which is still a product
that nobody buys), and every other peripheral that
plugs into the back of a PC. SCMM is nothing more than
a ballyhooed MOUSE manufacturer whose stock is
being run up by naive people like yourself that have no
clue. My opinion.
Not only has Microsoft added shareholder value,
it has increased investor's awareness and eventually
Wall St. will acknowledge SCMM's potential. The
computer smartcard reader is just a stepping stone which
has shifted alot of attention to an upcoming
powerhouse in smartcard technology. Smartcard readers in
businesses is the core business of SCMM and if you think
about it, just think about where SCMM will be in say 6,
9, 12 or 60 months from now. I think the investment
will be more profitable than Dell has been.
