The infringement is the easy part; now it's a question of what it's worth.
Figure $700M in the bag (puts us at $6/share); willfull infringement looks good, plus the prospect of suing customers and keeping Microsoft and others from doing so.
Figure trading around $5 by October 1, $6-$7 by Oct 16; $1.8B minimum settlement; $15 minimum by Oct 17.
Sentiment: Strong Buy
trial will not last a day, maybe double digits by Halloween or 11/1
I like your thinking. Most people keep going back to that $696M settlement, but the truth is, the real number after will is said and done will be closer to $1.3B.
can i ask what this $696M settlement number u are all referring to is?
