    Uni-Pixel starting to feel for real with Kodak news

    Do not own any Uni-Pixel and own a bunch of Atmel. But starting to wonder if it is going to be easier to double my money from today here or there?

    Sentiment: Hold

    • My issue is that I KNOW a little bit about the CIT/UNXL colaberation and there is very little doubt in MY mind about UNXL 'using' CIT IP. The question is the legality of their action. Here we have a 'lawyer' running ATML, who forged an exclusive deal with CIT, and I see no advantage whatsoever... not that I think much of lawyers anyway...

    • UNXL most likely will succeed with Kodak. That was the reason they were so sure. However most of the profits probably will go to Kodak.
      UNXL shorts are panicking now and that is the only reason why this stock goes higher. When most shorts are done, I will short the stock.

      • Eastman Kodak Company, commonly known as Kodak, is an American multinational imaging and photographic equipment, materials and services company headquartered in Rochester, New York, United States and incorporated in New Jersey.[3] It was founded by George Eastman in 1888.

        Kodak is best known for photographic film products. During most of the 20th century Kodak held a dominant position in photographic film, and in 1976 had a 90% market share of photographic film sales in the United States. The company's ubiquity was such that its tagline "Kodak moment" entered the common lexicon to describe a personal event that demanded to be recorded for posterity.[4]

        Kodak began to struggle financially in the late 1990s as a result of the decline in sales of photographic film and its slowness in transitioning to digital photography, despite having invented the core technology used in current digital cameras. 2007 was the most recent year in which the company made a profit.[5] As part of a turnaround strategy, Kodak focused on digital photography and digital printing and attempted to generate revenues through aggressive patent litigation.[6][7] In January 2012, Kodak filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection.[8][9][10] In February 2012, Kodak announced that it would cease making digital cameras, pocket video cameras and digital picture frames and focus on the corporate digital imaging market.[11] In August 2012, Kodak announced the intention to sell its photographic film (excluding motion picture film), commercial scanners and kiosk operations as a measure to emerge from bankruptcy.[12] In January 2013, a court approved financing for the company to emerge from bankruptcy by mid 2013.[13]

      • Kodak is a shell of a company now-a-days that can't even monetize its patents... It may be a good move, but Kodak has very few other endeavors to explore. It is the poster child for management being comatose to change.

    • This demostartes the potentential of metal mesh.
      Atmel has a higher quality product than UNXL.
      The problem is capacity.
      Both ATML/Carclo and UNXL are in a race to increase capacity.
      Actually Atmel/Carclo is ahead in this race.
      Carclo third manufacturing facility will be ready in May.
      The game is on!

      Sentiment: Strong Buy

    • yep - a whole lot easier
