With this new AT&T ad, clearly shows IDCC generating lot of revenues supporting companies like AT&T.
Either buyout close or IDCC generating lot of revenues on its own, either way LONGS will be paid a ton for their loyalty to the stock.
<< wsurfer, if your profit is "if IDCC remains above $35", then you have enough profit to "maybe" buy a Mr. Coffee maker to give away at the next wedding you have to bring a gift to.
Another idiot who doesn't have a clue about trades involving combinations of options.
The real Bullwinkle would be embarrassed by your ignorance.

Great spread, that'll get you that Porche you always dreamed of!
<< Well I happen to believe that if they announce no sale that the stock will decline up to $10+. >>
So let's get this straight:
- you don't really believe a buyout will occur but if it does the maximum price will be $65
- you are expecting that when no buyout is announced, the price will drop to $32 or less
- you don't have any respect for management and are critical of their performance and their remuneration
- your technical analysis tells you that the stock is in a downtrend and you have been advising people to sell
- you tend to side with realitypatrol in his negative analysis of the company's patents
Please tell us how anyone can possibly believe that you are long IDCC.
It is a very good calculated risk here IMO - to be long - the upside is much higher than the downside. The naysayers sound like a bunch of leftover OWS protesters who just like to complain about something but who knows what? Their whining and panning doesn't deter me one iota from my wife's and my plan to weather any volatility and hold IDCC at least until an announcement. We feel very good about this decision. GO whine and cry all you want but I can tell you it gets boring so that is partly why I put the whining weiners on ITU.
<< This stock would trade a lot higher if the majority of people shared your opinion. >>
That's not true. My opinion is that the market doesn't have any evidence as to whether or not there will be a buyout. Thus, it is pricing the company at it's value as an on-going concern.
And you can't use your assumption to disprove another assumption. Don't they teach logic to accountants.
<< It doesn't make me a basher because my expectations are more aligned with current stock price. >>
That's a minor reason for thinking you are a wolf in sheep's clothing. I don't really care about a buyout price because my position is such that I only need to see IDCC remain above $35. Obviously I would like to see a buyout as that would assure it.
It's your negative comments on management salaries, management performance, wanting the company to call off the strategic review, claiming to hold shares while encouraging everyone else to sell, etc., etc.
