people who post about products and patents relevant to ovti are doing the board a great service. in depth discussion of the sensor market have added value too. discussion of fundamentals and even some elements of TA are worthwhile as well.
those of you who post pps predictions are full of shit. period. it is purposeless to say this is going to 12 or 37 preCC, during the CC, or after the CC. you think your 50 shares will control the direction of the pps?
I would imagine the principals in CDM got a much better look at OVTI than all of us average investors. It says volumes that they were comfortable with stock compensation as part of the purchase. They would know better than anyone what WFC will do for OVTI. When their work is done they will reap the benefits. Gee, I guess we will too.
Although I agree with you about many of the posts being totally irrelevant, and I agree that products and patent information are useful. I totally disagree with you that estimates of pps are as you say, are "full of shit".
I would agree that may of the comments are not based on fact, and probably are crap, however, I personally refuse to make hasty generalizations to everyone's estimates of pps.
First, I am not on this board for academic reasons. I damn well am interested in making money. I could actually care less whether it is widgits or sensors. And though I find the scientific aspects of OVTI interesting, I really am only concerned with its fundamentals.
Second, 50 shares may not be a lot for some of the people on this board but it may be very important to others, and whatever amount they have at stake is totally irrelvant.
Third, I think that my SWAG numbers are as good as anyone elses and probably a hell of lot better than most of the high priced analysts that get paid a hell of a lot more. My estimates come from facts not some academic hypothesis.
Fourth, if OVTI goes 50%/50%/50% over previous quarter for three straight quarters on revenue,its PPS will be over 100+. Is that BS, could be but I believe the market will recognize it sooner or later or I got a PE of 2.

No your price estimates are not based on facts. PPS will only rise when buyers > sellers. So what facts do you refer to?
You need to pay attention to the tech b/c that is what keeps ovti ahead of the competition. Some people on this board think WFC will cure cancer or allow you to spy into your neighbor's toilet and tout it as such. Very few posters have any idea what WFC really is (though ttlyon and others have provided excellent discussions).
I guess we all have different reasons for investing here. So in closing, yes yours and others' SWAG on pps are worthless.
