When your building your position, the last thing you want to do is attract attention buy driving the price up. That would just make future purchases more expensive, and the eventual total average price higher.

Yup, sounds just like the REGN board 20 years ago. Why do you waste your time typing, if thats you're perspective. Seems your time/effort would be better spent elsewhere?? LOL :-)
Wow, that comment isn't really worth responding to, but here's a last attempt, You either misunderstand the point or just don't want to hear it. They were NOT laughing 25 years ago, and compensation has nothing to do with it. Technology adoption is a tough business. It took 30 years for electricity to reach 10% penetration. You can waste time as a negative nanny, or do something. Change the board, sell your shares, but make a decision, and take some form of action. You'll feel better and life will have more meaning.
Building a successful company takes much longer than most people understand. One of my best companies is REGN. I have owned them for over 20 years. Used to see the same, "management is clueless, can't figure out how to get a product to market, etc. etc. on their message board. NOT ANY MORE. Now their founder and President jokes that they are a 25 year over night success. If you like playing the lottery, stick with it, you may have better luck if you don't really appreciate how hard it is (and how long it REALLY takes) to get the flywheel spinning on its own. :-)
Hasn't been done so can't be done. Thats your argument. I think the Wright Brothers, Steve Jobs, Elon Musk, Jeff Bezos etc., etc., would disagree with you. :-) The pessimist perspective versus the optimist, BUT if you don't play you can't WIN. What did Jeff Bezos recently say. :-) LOL
Agreed, this kind of visibility is GOOD, and should help to grow the market. We want every architect and every glass building owner to know this is an option, and to consider and to evaluate smart glass. The more of these stories that start to make headlines, the better.
