Your right if they had lost once, Apple lost twice so that gives the Judge cover and he is already in the Damage phase and said it would be a speedy decision, so I can wait and in no way Apple get away from paying the 626 million that a FEDERAL court twice decided in VHC's favor - I am at this stage not buying more, but I am certainly not selling -- I feel good about waiting and seeing as its a minimum double and you know it.
Sentiment: Strong Buy
I bought some, low on money or would have bought more, the 626 million is a done deal already makes it a $10.00 stock and so being long is really low risk, shorts have a good team but ultimately price will be a double from here.
Sentiment: Strong Buy
The whole oil industry has had such a drastic cut in E&P capital investment that 2017 will be the time when a snap back in prices and rig orders come - i say around Feb 2017 - May 2017 as even the Saudis have not spent the money to keep up current production.
Sentiment: Strong Buy
Logic says Judge would not be writing up damage decision if the decision was still in doubt, still think payday will occur and no or minor willful amount, but the real question is what the royalty ongoing will be and my opinion is it will at least be sufficient to sustain $10.00 share price or more, but those $80 - $100 per share guys will be very disappointed.
Used oiji board as the ultimate decider and it says ------ Patience grasshopper -------- what will be will be -------- do you feel lucky ? then wait as the Judge has not decided --- stand pat dont buy more and dont sell as your fate is always in your beliefs not in those idiots on Yahoo board as those Yahoos are only out to deceive you both long or short and those are truly some......... Yahooossssssssssssss
Could it affect any royalty ? I agree that the already determined cash award will most likely stand but VHC ultimately will be priced on royalty income and that is the HUGE unknown and even if large will they be appealed - most likely Apple will appeal like they have in the past.
If their friendly talks ----- meaning concerning buying VHC then after 3 years they should know everything about VHC and waiting till after an Apple decision makes no sense because it would cost them more assuming a favorable VHC outcome. Samsung hasn't made an offer so I believe they have no intention of buying VHC. Remember to either Apple or Samsung they are so large that buying VHC would not be that large of an acquisition. Accordingly like Microsoft has shown they just simply do not want to buy VHC.
Royalties can be configured in various ways it does not have to be on a per device so many cents rate ----- I think you will find Apple contesting this particular way of assessing fees, I also think Apple may decide to have it as an option and thereby customers wanting those features will pay and those that dont wont. In the end rest assured VHC as in the past overplays their hand and the shareholders will be the worse off for it. KL could have made a deal with Cisco but pushed too hard and blew the company up / / could of been better with Microsoft too /// You need to know how too make DEALS that benefit both sides and KL does not work that way and thats why it went to being a two dollar stock when it NEVER should have came close to that.
Woa slow the horse down before you lose your mind - Samsung has not been sued nor has any evidence or even claim of anything there yet. Apple may even get off scott free at this point we can assume they will have to pay but all appeals are not definitely over --- assuming they do have to pay its most likely the 626 million dollar award only and potentially some very minor royalty no where near the numbers you are indicating. You are placing the cart in front of the horse and it just dont work that way. Many Judges dont want them to even get anything and that has to be front and center on this Judges mind as he wont want to look like a zealot. Relax and see how it plays out but you are over the top.
The I Phone 6 is too similar to the Chinese model because the Chinese model copied it from Apple and they were too dense to figure it out.
You tell em Geejo ---- Im your long buddy till VHC hits $6.50 then its time to sell ------ watch and learn from me ---- you never stay long toooooo long.
Concerning FRO and the other tankers DHT and TNK have all been hurt by lower rates resulting from Nigeria oil production cuts due to internal country political problems this oil is a key to VLCC rates and is why DHT has went from $6.00 to $5.00 range and a major reason for the brent going back up 4% today as each day the perception there creating oil price volatility.
