    High beta stock?????

    I never thought I would say this, but I think I am guilty of taking OVTI and the board for granted. There are some really good posters here and some really bad posters here. We have people on the long side from all walks of life that represent a diverse crowd comprised of many different professions. Over the last year, we have seen many come and go. Some just change their handle to briefly appear on the radar until the crowd puts them back on ignore.

    The shorts range from day traders to industry level representatives. "Hedgies" jump in when an opportunity arises to short the stock. Some are here now and then and some are here 24/7 with waves and waves of disinformation, misinformation, distortion and lies. Some, it seems, have been sentenced here to their own personal hell and it seems as much as we want them to go away, they couldn't leave if they wanted.

    We have gotten to know the analysts who cover OVTI and journalists who pretend to know what they are talking about. We cite industry, technology, field critical, and human interest posts every day. We read press releases from the wires, rags, tabs and mags. Some post link after link after link in hopes of solidifying the bigger picture for everyone else. Some even offer seemingly impossible, hard to find content. We post paid for comment without asking for so much as a thank you and we scrutinize content beyond the superficial. You see, I have begun to take all of you for granted. My expectations have become too common place and until I visited another technology board yesterday and today, I didn't really realize how much we rely on each other every day.

    My expectations of the reaction by the AAPL Message Board to HG's latest attempt at journalism must have been a bit too much. I expected the AAPL board to be abuzz yesterday after the article published in the WSJ by HG. I expected different reactions and quite frankly I expected some contempt from the shareholders. The article was published in Saturday's WSJ. I perused the posts yesterday. Nothing. Last night. Again, nothing. I wasn't until this afternoon 1:09 pm (EST) that the first hint of the article hit the board and guess who posted it? A basher. Interestingly enough, very little has been discussed of it since it was posted and there is no where near the fervor that this board would emote. It's funny. There is no definitive definition of beta for a stock and less when it is considered high-beta. Only going outside the realm of this board was I finally able to understand completely what it meant.

    Thanks to all of the longs on this board who have provided the newbies with the "right stuff" to get them going and thanks to all of the rarely posters who pipe in every now and again when someone posts something too wrong to remain silent. Also, thanks to all who provide TA and comparative analysis. Perspective is as important as ever in this highly competitive market.

    I know this board is for entertainment purposes and it does on occasion just that but you all have transcended it into a well-oiled machine. One that is constantly tweaked in order to stay balanced. It is a shame that this stock gets kicked around like it does. I believe that one day soon OVTI will achieve the balance needed to remove the high-beta stigma and solidify itself into a high growth company that serves it's stockholders well and will in due time reward them for their diligence. Of course, that is just my opinion.

    I trade a few stocks (so I don't haunt the boards of stocks I trade) but OVTI is my long term hold and I buy when I can afford more. Keep up the good work all. I appreciate it and l Just wanted to let you know. Anyway, back to the business at hand... collecting facts and figures to use as fodder to stave off the trolls.

    • T Tylon,

      Nice POST! You are a class act. All longs are patiently waiting a recovery but hearts are sinking lower and lower every day. I feal like a girl thats about to go against Mike Tyson. There seems nothing that can can do but take the punishment for the time. We all know we'll be back and the feeling will be great, but it appears taht we may have to wait till earnings run up. Even the hedgies and the shorts know that they guided higher and close their short position and go long. SO WE WAIT!

        Thanks.

        Hopefully ample news will precede the earnings call. The next CC should prove to be very, very interesting.

        PS the address is madmoney@CNBC.com. I emailed them earlier and asked for a retraction. I noted that I was under the impression that Jim Cramer adequately researched stocks before offering comment. It appears that I was wrong.

    • A dollar dividend would only be just over 50 mil.....they would still have plenty for R+D....not to mention the cash they are putting back in as the year goes on....

    • wait till ovti gets busted for illegal
      backdating of options.

      where do you think all those low priced options are coming from.

      insiders at ovti are cotinuously exercising low priced options and selling the
      share on the open market, thus diluting the shares outstanding and pushing the pps down.

    • Short selling is legal.
      Naked short selling is mostly not legal.
      Strategic failure to deliver is a robbery in daylight, hence SHO listing.

    • yes but I'm telling you will only have a temporary effect....not a permanent like a stock buyback.... look at that oil tanker stock that did a big dividend it went from 8 to 16 then back to 8....

    • obviously u have a very short term mentality! Hey OVTI, give me ur cah, lets beat the shorts!! And then crumble in the longer term becaise theres no more cash for R&D!! Lets watch MU take all of our contracts with newer better chips (cuz they will be spending a lot on cmos r&d going forward)...very short term mentality u have my friend...

    • everyone has a right to their opinion....

    • I disagree......There are several good things about a big dividend. First, we would all receive a nice check from the company(15% taxed). Second, unless the shorts cover quickly(short squeeze and a big run up in pps) they would have to help pay that dividend. Third, by then OVTI will be into prime time for reporting so much less of a chance the shorts returning any time soon. Fourth, It's time to teach these shorties a hard lesson and it's finally time for them to find some other stock that they can push around.

    • Scott, the dividend would require the DTCC to account for all the short shares to properly pay the dividend to the proper shareholders. If there are naked short shares they would have to cover as they artificially increase the float.

    • bingo.... now you are catching on...
