kaz, The most important event we could get would be a deal with one of the big boys, that would give us 10 bucks and ongoing royalty stream with perhaps a dividend. A RR from HJD will be a less than big event because AAPL will appeal all the way to the SCOTUS. We've had 10 new patents since June and that has done nothing even through it makes older patents stronger. Couple more months and we should have one of the above. JMHO
"Millions of Hidden Share Trades to Be Revealed"
Dec. 9, 2013 — Millions of previously hidden US stock trades will be revealed for the first time on Monday December 9 thanks to research from a team of academics.
But Chen Yao, of Warwick Business School, Maureen O'Hara, of Cornell University and Mao Ye, of University of Illinois, discovered that more and more big trades were being 'sliced and diced' to less than 100 shares so they remained hidden, leading to a 'two-tier market'. They found four per cent of the volume of shares traded were done as odd lots in 2009 and that had risen to 4.9 per cent in the summer of 2013. In some cases they found that 60 per cent of a stock's shares were traded as odd lots and so were hidden from the public transaction feed.
joe, Exactly. What are they trying to hide? If they weren't doing anything wrong they would have been totally open and forthcoming. Maybe it isn't AAPL but CSCO. Just a WAG. Still smells of R*I*C*O.
sam, You forgot about the $6 worth of dividends.
AGILE NETWORK PROTOCOL FOR SECURE COMMUNICATIONS USING SECURE DOMAIN NAMES
A client device comprises: (a) a memory, (b) an application program, and (c) a signal processing configuration. The memory is configured and arranged to facilitate a connection of the client device with a target device over a secure communication link created based on (i) an address request generated by the client device, and (ii) a determination as a result of the address request that the target device is a device with which a secure communication link can be established when the requested address is identified in an address lookup. The application program is configured and arranged so as to allow participation in audio/video communications with the target device over the secure communication link once the secure communication link is established. The signal processing configuration is arranged to execute the application program.
cc, "once again VHC's attys demonstrate their ineptitude" How you can make a statement like that is beyond me. First, VHC's attorneys are working on contingency so they have a vested interest in doing the best job possible. Second, the only litigation they haven't won is the CSCO trial and the case could be made that wasn't their fault, also since HJD hasn't responded with a finial ruling VHC could still get a JMOL in their favor. Third, the ONLY thing that has really gone against VHC is the amount of time for the rulings. With that being said explain why VHC attorneys are inept.
If it's meaningless why are you commenting on it? Back to iggieland D*bag.
I'll bite. The shorts with the help of the RCs pushed the share price down in anticipation of the "bad news" of the new IPR. When they got the price down as far as they could they covered hence the price rise.
What a windfall for AAPL. 30c a share. Coincidentally that's about what they owe VHC right now. Or about $5 a share.
"SAN FRANCISCO, Nov 20 (Reuters) - Qualcomm Inc CEOPaul Jacobs promised on Wednesday to return 75 percent of free cash flow to shareholders through stock buybacks and increaseddividends"
It's showing up on Yahoo 300 20s, 300 21s, 305 22s, 300 23s, 300 24s, 516 25s. If it's not showing up on a "legitimate" then we're being Yahooed again.
willie, Same thing happened last week with those calls expiring worthless. My WAG is it is someone who short and they want some insurance in case we get some really good news,
I'm sure his passport is current and his offshore accounts have an ample amount of funds in them in event he needs to disappear. What Joel should remember is he may get tried of hiding and want to come clean. At that point Braeburn would be the one to watch out for. A few thousand dollars in a third world country can buy a whole lot of muscle to save Braeburn millions.
