    Shorts, the writing is on the wall, the long term trend is not your friend, and all is aligning nicely for Capstone. Get real, get out while the getting is good, or get taken for all you got. Just saying.

    "WASHINGTON (June 18, 2014) – “We applaud Representatives Chris Gibson (R-NY), Allyson Schwartz (D-PA), Peter King (R-NY), and Joseph Crowley (D-NY) for their bipartisan leadership in introducing the Power Efficiency and Resiliency (POWER) Act. This legislation makes important changes to the investment tax credit (ITC) for combined heat and power (CHP) to make it more effective and adds waste heat to power (WHP) to the qualifying list of technologies. These changes to existing law will help remove barriers to the deployment of these important technologies, enabling more businesses and communities across America to reduce energy consumption, save money, create jobs, and protect against blackouts – key priorities that both parties can agree upon.
    “In today’s global economy, these bipartisan leaders recognize that American manufacturing must be as productive and efficient as possible. An expanded investment tax credit for CHP and WHP would spur investments in manufacturing competitiveness within the steel, aluminum, glass, chemical, and other energy-intensive industries. The sponsors of this legislation have taken an important step to encourage near-term, shovel-ready projects that create and maintain thousands of jobs within those industries as well as in the manufacturing, installation, and operation of CHP and WHP equipment. These bipartisan leaders recognize that the potential for CHP and waste heat to power is large, and will enhance competitiveness, create jobs, and lower emissions – while ensuring that we keep the lights on at America’s hospitals and factories. We commend Representatives Gibson, Schwartz, King and Crowley for proposing critical reforms to existing tax incentives to help jumpstart these investments.”
    The Alliance for Industrial Efficiency is a diverse coalition that includes representatives from the business, environmental, labor and contractor communities. We are committed to enhancing manufacturing competitiveness and saving energy and mo

    Eventually, you can take your dividend payment per share X's 23 million to figure out the settlements.

    We could all see a dividend payment before we see a quarterly report.

    Sounds like he has a plan, is proactive, and ahead of the game. I don't need to time anything since I am a long time investor.

    "With a wonderful business, you can figure out what will happen; you can't figure out when it will happen. You don't want to focus on when, you want to focus on what. If you're right about what, you don't have to worry about when"

    Says Warren Buffet

    Shorts are always worried about when. LOL.

    If you think of it, it is funny. Now the big fellas paying licensing fees will know how we feel because they also will have to wait to see a quarterly report for information just as we do now for stock information. Do you feel sorry for them raising such a hissie fit? Now they won't know the going rate up dated and timely. LOL.

    If you had invested in Jan 2012 and sold in October 2012 you would have made 450% return on your money in VRNG and they never paid dividends to drive the shorts out like SPEX will. Don't get caught having to pay my dividend, if you do send me a note I'll write you a thank you note. LOL.

    Exactly, they all know they are infringing willfully and have been for years and now they are saying Rockstar's and Spherix's tactics are unlawful and unfair. I think bankrupting Northern Telcom was unlawful and unfair but who cares about that either. Good luck with sympathy. LOL.

    You may find your answer in the counter suit as to non-disclosure.

    ""Rockstar has misused and attempted to obtain exorbitant royalties from
    licensing the patents it purchased from Nortel by: (a) refusing to identify to potential licensees
    the patents it seeks to enforce and instead broadly accusing companies of infringing the portfolio
    as a whole; (b) requiring all potential licensees to sign non-disclosure agreements as a
    precondition to negotiating licensing agreements for the purpose of obtaining royalties in excess
    of its FRAND obligations; (c) refusing to identify patents already licensed to vendors in an
    attempt to avoid exhaustion and extort multiple royalties; and (d) once requests are made to
    license standard essential patents, transferring those patents to third parties in an attempt to
    obtain increased royalties and avoid its FRAND licensing obligations"
    ------------------------------------------------------
    and yet that is exactly how the settlements to date are being conducted. They may not like it but they are doing it by " requiring all potential licensees to sign non-disclosure agreements as a
    precondition to negotiating licensing agreements for the purpose of obtaining royalties in excess of its FRAND obligations; "

    It would seem to date their plan is working. So these settlements are not cheap.

    The $230 million in backlog tells me there is growing demand for their product and services. The hiring of the new V.P. of operations tells me they will do something to turn the backlog into huge profits. The recent dilution tells me of a need to expand production lines. The increase in buying of shares by institutions tells me that they don't feel the same as you. All just a matter of how you interpret things.

    Kind of hard for Wellington to be selling short and yet have an 11 million increase in holdings considering they have to report both sells and buys. Seems to me they are both holding and buying.

    Furthermore,

    While Hedge Funds have been adding Institutional Shorts have been slowly covering leaving retail shorts holding the bag. Once they realize most Short positions are held by retail they will have them right where they want them for a big money opportunity. The numbers don't lie, but the folks that want your shares do.

  • "A patent is essentially a government-sanctioned monopoly designed to give the inventor a two-decade head start to commercialize any new technology. But in practice, patents are weapons. Technology companies load up on patents like Cold War nations stockpiling nuclear bombs, hoarding them for use when an important market is at stake. And few companies have been loading up on patents as aggressively as Apple and Google, two companies that had nothing to do with the smartphone market 10 or 15 years ago when many of Nortel’s wireless patents were being developed.

    Many companies stockpile patents for defensive purposes, but others actively look for ways they can make money from them — big money. "

    The case was Guidance vs AT&T the average new investor would not of thought it had anything to do with Spherix. I believe it went right under the radar.
