VALV will be a $6 stock the day the Chief Technology Officer relinquishes his position as CEO and CBO.
As a technology officer he fully appreciates the value of ceramic valves. But his excellence lies in technology and not running a company. A technologist will look at competitors products and see that his products are every bit as good and think they should sell for the same price.
However, a qualified CEO would understand all the reason that is not the case, and address those differences. A products' value is not only intrinsic to the product, but comes from the company that makes it.
VALV's ceramic valve competitors are excellent companies. The same cannot be said for Shengkai Innovations. And will remain that way as long as the CTO is the CEO.
This problem was encount frequently in the hayday of silcon valley start ups. The tech founder needed to step aside and let the company grow. Where would Apple be today if Steve Wosniak had been the CEO?
They have a sales team, but no PR. Shouldn't have one without the other. Lot easier to generate sales leeds when you have a good PR dept. I understand that in this type of product people in the know will spread info. by word of mouth. But the more people spreading the info. initially the easier it is to ramp up sales. Doesn't seem to be enough trade show action or advertising. This could all change once they get their certifications. That is very important to VALV success and should be their primary concern. They should also provide investors with progress reports. I have writen many emails in that regard and get no responses of significance. Very unprofessional. Virtually no PR at all at least not for investors. I hope they treat their customers much better. I don't care if you've got the answer to all the world energy problems. If you don't get the word out, and no one knows, then no one cares. Promote your products and your existence.
