Listen HAB, Tokman has set this up so he doesn't ever have to give shareholders anything he doesn't want to talk about and it only occurs at cc's. I have never seen a company so cloaked in secrecy with no consideration for the folks who pay the bills. It doesn't have to be this way, it is the way a foreign language, poor English speaking CEO wants it. For all the NDA's and foreign customers there is ample room for the company to keep investors a where of advancements and foreign sales and production capabilities. We know the tech is mature, we know lasers are no longer a problem, per Tokman, we know Sony is the lead, and we have putrid guidance. I believe the guidance is accurate and I'm looking for a surprise like everybody else, but not happy with Tokman. I believe in more capable hands we would be over $3 right now and heading norlth. Been here forever and will see this through, but this guy is bad at his job.
Not until Tokman sails into the sunset do we go forward. Everyone talks about embedded and I am still looking for the low hanging fruit, HUD, and gaming. Thought we would see those things at least 18 months ago. when management starts to buy shares we will know it is time. They all want to make money and yet not one of them has stepped up.
Well, I have always relied on Tom Trimbath for a level headed assessment, and he certainly delivered once again. Peter has done a great job with his blog, but it is always with a positive slant. Wishing and hoping for eight to ten years has been a grind and now we see management is doing the same. Like I didn't know it. Don't have to go to Seattle to figure Tokman and gang out, this guy is easy. Just when will shareholders demand accountability from him? I am amazed that there are so many investors who have lost so much money voting for additional compensation. Wow, what is the average IQ here in worship land?
VOR, it should be obvious to everybody by now that this management team is totally unable to manage this company. There is too much going on not to be able to generate interest among investors. They do conferences designed to boost institutional interest and it drops after they speak. I would like to see the BOD spend $100 each on MVIS shares, just once. Get a clue, they don't care. The are holding free lottery tickets on our money, and that is all they care about. Not a word in all of this carnage. We don't follow the market, Tokman kills us over and over. The source is common sense.
And will stay that way until data changes it. We need 1400 to show top line results, 3100 is nowhere to be found. Is it management or is there another problem?
Amen 100. Ten years of nothing but Tokman talk that diluted shareholders to almost nothing. Bet a $5 offer would be seriously considered by most long investors and the thoughts of no more Tokman is very attractive as well.
Every time he speaks it goes down. What he considers good news is all connected to his accumulation of shares at investors expense. Just reiterating the guidance will drive shares down. A lot of Tokman supporters were convinced that he was low balling the year, but I believe he is trying to be honest and up front with investors. He has done his best and it has been a lousy attempt. We don't seem to have much until perhaps next year, and he has made that crystal clear.
That a company with no revenue stream, depending on grants and government money, would want to get their lead candidate into P3 asap. With their biggest funding being shareholders it would be in their best interest to advance their lead product quickly. Has 3112 shown so much success in early trials that it has made 3100 obsolete before it even gets into P3? This is taking a long, long time and I don't see a real reason for this extended delay. He didn't raise investor confidence when he spoke on TV a few weeks ago.
What has Sony and Tokman done to compete? Where's the beef? Where can I buy a Qualper? Show me some PO's. What are the goals, and who are we working with? I've heard all the magic bean words skillfully used by Tokman for years, Intel, MSFT, Appl, and no bean stalks to date. Nothing but little sprouts that are growing at a snails pace. Not enough to put food on the table for anyone but management and it hasn't changed in ten years. Why are they still there? Why do they get bonuses? How can they continue to fool investors? They seem to be selling NDA's and no high volume products. Does this ever end? Do we need one shareholder friendly member on the board? Perhaps Tom Trimbath would consider it.
Eyes on the prize? Dilution is the prize and has been for years 009. They diluted after the cc so they don't have to answer any questions from those jackass retail boobs. The don't care what he pps is, yes, they could of done it when the pps was higher, but they were asking for us to approve another ton of shares for themselves. That wouldn't play well with us so this is how they do it and put us in our place, again.
Can't say I disagree HAB, but this guy went to conferences last year to get the word out in September and by November we saw a 30% decline in Institutional ownership. I would love to see him turn the corner and have the street and investors see results and confidence in his ability to bring this to market, but it hasn't happened yet and I hold little hope that it ever will. As I said, I am here for a long, long time and will see it play out because I don't think he can kill the tech. Good wishes to all longs weather they like him or hate him. I think he saw Field of Dreams to much and thinks he has built it, they will come. Hoping he is right.
How come we all know this and management doesn't? Results bring partnerships, credibility, momentum, and investor interest, duh. And it also cures cancer for folks along the way. What am I missing with these peer reviews and the delays they cause?
With Sony just isn't happening. I don't see a push for Picop anywhere. Seems like everybody is sitting back watching small ball being played with very little upside. Volume is key and it isn't coming from the current players. Notes from Tom seem to indicate that the management is content to take their bonuses and wait for Sony to decide to commit to Picop. We need a salesman and we don't have one. This tech is too good and mature enough that we should get a lot more from ASM than we saw today. Very cautious going forward and not really looking for Lenovo or anyone else to surprise me, this hoping for management to perform and execute is getting very old. No real date on the new smaller, brighter engine, just soon as usual which could mean two years. Somebody on the BOD has to step up because it looks like nobody gives a dam.
Hasn't seemed right since the guidance. He has written off 2016 and the losses continue. He has not kept shareholders informed as to where we are with a ton of new devices being introduced. We don't know where we are with HUD which was a main attraction for us for years. We don't know anything about our relationships with vendors or OEM's. What we do know is that Sony is our only chance of survival and they treat us as a division of their conglomerate and Tokman as an employee who is not allowed to speak. Investors appear ready to revolt and a lot want a change in stewardship today. Does not seem right? No #$%$..
Come on, he is the CEO. He wasn't prepared for the golden opportunity he had. I just viewed both spots and he did OK with Bloomberg, but the CNBC spot was his to hit one out. Ambush? I doubt that. That crew knows their business and presented Kim with a golden shot and he misfired. If you aren't prepared, don't go. He should never look dumb founded when it comes to our tech and our trials and products. Ball was in his court.
