I don't know how many people were in the room, but I was extremely impressed by Dr. Ali today. He explained the evolution that TranSwitch was going through in a very clear manner and it is a compelling story. He said that he felt that the current valuation of the company was strictly based upon the telecom side and that he thought "the train was leaving the station" as far as the stock price goes. Ali also noted that in addition to their PR person, Chairman Demontry and Herb Chen were in attendance. I think this is the beginning of a long series of road shows, where Dr. Ali will be speaking to investors. Bought some more.
We pretty much agree, though it doesn't interest me to try and figure out whatever Ali's motives are on stock purchases. I will only say that years ago I knew a number of very successful people in the Valley, and their only goal with the money they invested is that they wanted to make even more of it.
As to motives of posters here, it's free and worth what we pay. I like other views and discussions, though none of it would ever make a difference in my buying/selling process.
