Because that's what it was called back when the Samsung deal happened... just trying to keep some historical perspective on this never-ending saga that is Universal Display Corp (and which I've been a part of for many years and quite frankly grown disappointed in even though I am still long).
High lifetime deep blue would certainly be a huge breakthrough but it's very possible it may never happen. The only sure way for OLED to prosper is if TV's and lighting goes into mass market production, which demands low costs to displace competing LCD and LED technologies. Continued optimization of WOLED used by LG may be adequate to achieve this objective. The alternative is to develop production-worthy P2LED printer-based technology. The clock keeps ticking...
And when inkjet printing takes off and Samsung is ramping production of cheap oled tv's based on it, OLED management will negotiate a P2OLED contract with favorable terms for Samsung (since it's the only company using this 2nd gen oled technology)... the never-ending saga of disappointment even as oled technology becomes pervasive. I would love to be proven wrong... go ahead Sid and Steve, make my day/month/year/decade.
oil prices are not falling because the world economy is in recession. they are falling because new extraction techniques have led to a surge in production. so yeah, low oil prices will boost economic growth.
Well I'm confident the markets will continue to head up next week, so goodbye and good riddance, and don't let the door hit you on the way out. These boards are supposed to be a forum to discuss trading and investing, not politics, climate change, or religion. PS: If you want to debate religion then maybe you can go chat with The Loony on the AIXG board. Bye bye.
True, but what I particularly don't like in all this is they have spent roughly half the $50M allotted to share buybacks at what will likely be elevated levels. If they had any doubts about hitting their targets, they should not have been buying back shares.
You are delusional. The ONLY thing that will make this stock scream is sales contract announcements, NOT marketing announcements.
I don't care what Jed prefers. If OLED results prove his analysis blatantly wrong, nothing precludes OLED executives from refusing to answer his questions on the earnings CC.
Do you really think debating the existence of god or global warming over and over and over again is somehow less a waste of space?
USA... warmonger extraordinaire. The Nobel Committee must rescind Obama's Nobel Peace Prize, even if the current Nobel laws don't permit it. I never saw anyone less deserving of that prize... to this day I cannot fathom what that committee was thinking.
You're right. But you implied that the company does not care about loss of life which I have a hard time to believe. The CEO certainly is aware that the plant manager issued a statement so to me it would seem redundant to just repeat it. If the CEO wanted to specifically address the issue of safety at DD then that's another matter. Whatever....
PS: DD stock price has done much better than BASFY in 2014. I reduced my still profitable holdings in that company but regret not having put the proceeds into DOW or even DD.
I already pointed this out in a recent post. Yes it's possible. Yes it would be a good fit given SHPG's drug portfolio and history of acquisitions to grow the pipeline. Happy now?
Then boost the share compensation to executives
@@@@@ Long-Term Incentive Compensation Plan. The Plan was amended to increase the number of shares that may be issued under the Plan by 2,000,000 shares.
I don't follow DD so I don't know about safety problems at their plants. My point was that funfun's assertion that no one in management has expressed sympathy to families of those lost is a bit misguided at best. If there is criminal negligence at play though, then those in the management chain responsible for creating this situation should absolutely face justice.
I am not an ultra bull, but when economic powerhouses like USA and China are steadily growing I don't think a strong bearish view is warranted. Japan is a sore point but has been since forever it seems, while the EU is slowly recovering.
I have practically zero exposure to gold and don't follow that specific sector so I can't comment. Why do gold miners have any significant inventory at all? Is there not constant demand for all of the metal which is produced?
I am see little intrinsic value in gold compared to other PGM's like platinum and palladium, so my exposure there is limited to holdings in Russian nickel and PGM miner NILSY. I do follow nickel markets closely and there is potential for a strong price recovery there in 2015.
I do like black gold a lot. World demand for oil continues to grow, and I believe the market prices will recover sooner rather than later. Roughly a fifth of my portfolio is invested in the sector, primarily in high dividend return midstream plays, and I view the current bear market as an opportunity to add to my oil E&P holdings.
I'm finishing up a book titled "K-Cups for Dummies - How to Brew Coffee on a Keurig 2.0 System". I think it will be a great seller. Look for it next to the brewer display next month.
I would propose that Pakistanis are the ones who have truly lost the war on terror, not 1st world citizens who don't get to see a movie on its target release date because of a veiled threat. The killing of 141 school children by Taliban is a hard fact that is far more deserving of our attention.
