They have emailed me several times and made a phone call. Started with a 10% rate and now are up to 28%.
OK....I believe in the technology of Watt. The applications far exceed recharging phones and many low energy devices will be hooked up to a transmitter. In addition, more devices will become low energy and will be able to use Watt technology. That being said, I could not turn down a 28% rate to lend out my shares. $300 a month on an $8000 original investment is a great deal.
I could never figure out why Ed Meese would give his good name (and Reagan's by proxy) to this outfit. I'm sure some saps have "invested" with CRF because of Meese.
Xone should look into buying out industrial printer Evercel. While Evercel is not a 3d printer, their products are in many industrial settings. Could be some real synergies.
The Energous Twitter feed mentions that smoke detectors using WattUp technology won't need their batteries replaced.....not the biggest deal in the world but it would be the "best in class" for smoke detectors. I could see LED emergency lighting also benefiting from wireless recharging.
Once you loan them out, the shares are no longer insured by Schwab and they can be returned at any time. You probably would make $160 and would just be helping out the short sellers.
Schwab wants to borrow my shares in order to sell short. Terms weren't that bad.....supposedly $85 a month for 900 shares, Still, I told them to pound sand. The whole process seemed convoluted and why do I want to help someone drive down the price of a stock that I own.
