The market didn't see to like the Pixel Optics investment with the $.89 drop in the SFE share price representing a $17m reduction in marketcap meaning the market thinks SFE only got $8m in value from its $25m investment while not knowing the valuation of the investment.
Personally, I'm right in the sweet spot for Pixel optics having recently purchased reading glasses to replace mild bifocals. Bifocals would cost me about $500 which is half the cost of these lenses. Dedicated reading glasses aren't working out for me so I'll be purchasing new bifocals soon. Personally won't pay that premium for these lenses although presumably the price will come down.
The good news here is that SFE is dramatically increasing the size of its investments and is now a credible player to invest in companies going to market and is leading investments that include "name-brand" firms.
