    bidding war

    If the deal doesn't happen in the next 2-3 weeks, I'm sure IDCC will get permission from the SEC to leak some bullish news and get the stock back up closer to $100.

    • One of the main basher/short argument that I read on and on is that "THE MARKET IS A DISCOUNTING MECHANISM whether you believe that or not" as romulus (kind of the Lind of IHUB) states.

      Yes the market is a discounting mechanism and it works. The issue that shorts and bashers do not address is the timeframe and the necessary connections of the market with events in the real world.

      If there is a disconnect between events in the real world and the market, be it passage of time without information or disinformation, the discount mechanism ceases to be efficient or transparent.

      This is the case with IDCC. There were planted rumors that affected the price. They were effective due to lack of real official information. "The Market" discounted on the basis of they only pseudo info it had.

      Us longs consider what happened a pure and simple manipulation. For the sake of argument lets assume that the market was acting as discounting mechanism. I guess that if the market is fed poison (the DR rumor) it will puke out something which, probably, is not the product of a standard discounting process.

      Now, for manipulative reasons, shorts and bashers create a makebelieve circular logic on the basis of that puke --> the market is always correct and the market has spoken, given that the market has spoken and that is what it has said (price colapse) it is therefore obvious that the process is a failure. But, before you run for the hills and sell me your shares cheap....

    • What are you talking about? Permission from the SEC? That makes no sense. They can say whatever they want.

      • Then why haven't they released more bullish news to make the stock go higher? This idea that IDCC is going to sell for less than $5 billion is a joke, Nortel sold for $4.5 billion, had less patents and their engineering teams probably collapsed, IDCC has more patents (even more pending), and functioning engineering teams.

        I'm assuming they haven't released more bullish news because they don't want to get in trouble.
