"MVIS has made giant strides. They have patents on the highest quality Pico projectors that can be delivered at reasonable prices. The market for Pico Projectors alone, aside from other products, is projected to be in the 100’s of millions."
That link didn't work for me. Here is the full text as pertains to Mvis.
MicroVision (MVIS) was one of the first micro-cap stocks I purchased. The company develops ultra-miniature projection display technology. The most exciting development, among many, is the mass production of an artificial green laser that allows MVIS products to be offered at a reasonable price.
MVIS has developed and patented technological products. For years, they had many revolutionary products that kept pulling the company in different directions. I met Alexander Tokman 2005, shortly after he was hired to manage the company. After an initial analysis, he decided to focus the company’s efforts on a limited number of products – mostly concentrating on the Pico projector.
The Pico projector (the size of a half dollar) can project an image two feet or 20 feet in perfect focus. The technology uses lasers. Only recently was a green laser available to be mass produced at a reasonable price.
MVIS introduced a feature “called Touch – Interactive Touch. So you basically can display an image and at the same time use your fingers to articulate information in the image.” For example, MVIS can project a keyboard from a Smartphone, and then the consumer can enter information to the Smartphone from the image of the keyboard.
On April 3, 2013, MVIS announced a development agreement with a Fortune Global 100 company that included an upfront payment of $4.6 million in fees. “The companies have begun commercial negotiations with the expectation that licensing and component supply agreements would constitute the next stage of engagement leading to the OEMs introduction of commercial products incorporating PicoP (MVIS) display technology,” according to MicroVision.
MVIS has shipped over 50 samples of their products to consumer product and automobile manufacturers. With the first agreement signed, MVIS is “making solid progress in negotiations with several other customers that have the followi
characteristics: (1) Must be a blue chip company; (2) must have a strong business structure – with multiple sources of revenue – software and hardware; and (3) must have a commitment to MVIS.
Ideally, they would share risk with MVIS. The customer’s and MVIS’s expectations must be compatible and MicroVision will negotiate for advance revenues in the form of license fees before the product comes to market.
MVIS has made giant strides. They have patents on the highest quality Pico projectors that can be delivered at reasonable prices. The market for Pico Projectors alone, aside from other products, is projected to be in the 100’s of millions.
Every small company must solve problems, one step at a time. Alexander Tokman, President and CEO, says that MVIS must now focus on developing their supply chain of products. It may take some time, but I believe this stock is now on the way to making a contribution to our profits.
Nice find, Joe.
I have my own hypothesis that announcement(s) will be made between 7/21 and 8/21 that will start the uptrend and never look back, IMO. If I were short I would be formulating an exit strategy very soon.
The Basher activity certainly seems to be picking up.
I'm perfectly content to wait and watch.
