    " $4 plus million will be gone soon." What expenses do Spherix have ? Salaries and rent for an office.What debt does Spherix have? Zero
    Spherix has shown it has value by generating Income from it's ownership of Patents, Finally has a few million dollars on it's balance sheet.
    They aren't going away in 2016. If they find a way to monetize just one patent (they have 100's) Spherix will pop. In the past they have gone up 65% in one day based on pure speculation of a win in court. The float is now small (15 to one reverse split. Just look at the spread on a daily basis.

The text of the letter is below: To My Fellow Shareholders: We continue to make progress on our strategy to monetize our existing assets, generate cash flows and diversify into other sources of equity value and revenue creation. Our recent May 23, 2016 license agreement was a major milestone for Spherix. The agreement resulted in a cash payment to Spherix of $4.375M and cancellation of 100% of the remaining 381,967 shares of the Company's outstanding Series H Preferred Stock, which had a total carrying value of $31.89 million at the time the stock was issued to Rockstar Consortium US LP ("Rockstar").

    Tower now has sales of over $Billion . It is the largest single employer in the Northern part of Israel (2 fabs in Israel). It also has 2 Fabs in the U.S. and 3 Fabs in Japan. The growth of Tower and it's international exposure will get someones attention

    Institutional investors in Israel just bought over $100 Million of low interest bonds sold on the Tel-Aviv stock exchange from Tower.

    Today is Friday the Tel-Aviv exchange is closed or for the Israeli week-end (Friday &Saturday). The Tel-Aviv exchange will be open for 2 days before the U.S. market opens on Monday.

  • Trading in Tower shares goes against the numbers Tower is now generating. It's recent bond offering to Israeli institutional investors solidifies the strength of Tower's balance sheet. The guidance of Tower has been spot on, 2016 will be another strong year for Tower.
    If the share price doesn't represent fair market value Tower will be a perfect take over candidate. Intel has a big presence in Israel and is doing business with Tower now. They are buying chips manufactured by Tower.

    Now that Israel corporation and the Israeli banks are no longer the majority shareholders Tower will be open for a buyout if the share price is low.

  • The news that Tower is paying off it's high interest loans from Israeli banks is showing Tower has the cash to increase value for shareholders. Those that are short Tower now are fighting positive momentum. Hopefully more institutional investors will now have the confidence to make some big investments in Tower.

    Tower needs more investors and less traders for the share price to achieve value comparable to it's peer group. As Tower's balance sheet grows Tower will look much better as a long term investment. The sales and profit margins have been steadily going up.

    If Tower starts to get valuations of a fast growth company we will see rapid share price appreciation. The Israeli institutions have given Tower their seal of approval (purchase of over $100 million of Tower bonds at low interest rates).

    Lots of moving parts connected to Tower. Looking back, (past performances and actions) Tower had to create capital just to keep the lights on. Israel Corporation ,Israeli Banks, The state of Israel (Government grant) were needed to stave of bankruptcy.
    Going forward Tower is a GAAP profitable company with top tier clients and cutting edge technology. Tower has moved from an Israeli company with $200 million dollars in sales to an International company with over $1 Billion dollars in sales.
    Tower now has has 7 Fabs 2 in Israel 2 in the U.S. and 3 in Japan. The balance sheet has grown with the growing sales and profitability.
    The most important news is that the new Bond being issued in Israel is at a very competitive rate and enables Tower to pay down debt at higher less competitive rates. The buyer of the new bonds are sophisticated investors (Israeli institutional Investors). This should be enough to put an end to the rumors of financial fraud that pushed down the share price of Tower.
    The short seller are now having to cover their short bets and will only add fuel to upward share price going forward.

    Tower has shown the ability to find and execute deals to take over distressed Fabs around the world and incorporate these Fabs with their workforce's into the Tower ecosystem. This has proven to be very profitable for Tower and has shown that Tower can operate internationally, manage and create synergies with their deserve work force .

    This is the new business model which has grown sales and profits. The synergies of these acquisitions has made Tower much stronger and profitable company . .

  • Tower is at a cross road now. It has had a bumpy past. Has it turned around and developed a world class technology company or is it all about smoke and mirrors with a bit of financial fraud ?

    Investing is more about the future than the past. Looking at the numbers Tower is putting out now, it looks like a strong growth company. If the numbers are not real and they are manipulated to show strength instead of the truth, then Tower's management will be prosecuted for the fraud.

    The current lawsuits have put a cloud over Tower's stated achievements. What the latest quarterly report has stated was growth with a stronger balance sheet . The guidance for 2016 is strong going forward.

    The positive news that Tower has created hasn't sent the shorts on the run.

    What is not in question is who buying Tower's production and has it grown their sales?

    What is in question is the real profitability of it's production.

    I believe Tower is very undervalued and going forward they will have more deals, new technology and an ever growing balance sheet (money on the books to pay down debt and support share price).

    What is most lacking right now is institutional investors.

    what is going on here - my losses are piling up

    Yes I have 5000 shares of Tower.
    If you look at the guidance given in the quarterly reports they are usually conservative.
    Last quarter report called for $300 million in sales next quarter with strong guidance for the rest of 2016.
    We are looking at a Billion dollars plus in annual sales. The Balance sheet is growing and I'm sure there are new deals in the going forward.
    If you look at the cost of building new fabs and Tower's expansion without spending Billions of dollars. It's growth in the next year or 2 is already locked in.

    It is just a mater of time for it's share price to take off. This is a real company producing real products that are in growing demand.

    Tower's share price will eventually be in line with it's peer companies. It will take a big investor to give legitimization or a big institution (mutual or hedge fund) to move Tower. It needs some big buying to wipe out the short sellers.

    When Tower can trade at $15 plus it will start to valued as a growth company and not a company surviving on financial manipulations.

    Keep in mind that Tower had a reverse split a few years back .

    Rocket what you have missed is the management of Tower doesn't support their share price. Lot's of analysis about the management of the company. That is the big cloud that hangs over Tower. Tower is a strong growth company with strong forward guidance and should be selling at much higher multiples

    If they are able to continue to grow and grow their balance sheet the value should go up. Their future looks great their past not so great. .

    Sentiment: Buy
