You should have held out. I have enough shares and an attorney that loves companies like these if they prove to be fake. I'll play it to the end, then take them to court if things dont pan out what they promised 3/1 split
Enough is enough. I bought a LOT of this stock. I know its a lottery ticket at sorts, however it was done on the basis of the 3 for 1 stock split (merger). They have had plenty of time to do this split. I understand they had an auditor come in , blah, blah, blah,, but if they have time to make yet ANOTHER aquisition, they have time to complete the merger and give stock holders whats due them. I placed a phone call to them. we'll see what kind of response I get. I'll keep everyone posted
I would be thrilled just to see it in cell phone CASES, I-pad and kindle cases. If they cant land the cell phone screen themselves, protectors would be a viable option. With the super thin slices the touch would still be there, plus added protection. just a thought
I like it. Over a half a million shares in the first hour and rising. Sellers are done. I believe this stock is full of true longs here to stay. Every LED company that has reported has beat. GTAT will do the same on the LED side, combined with the savings from the pant closure, i truly believe the numbers are going to be good. The conference call will be an eye opener for the forth quarter and 1st quarter of next year. As everyone knows, markets trade 6 months in advance. I say we settle comfortably above $10 by years end. Posted contracts will push right back to $17. $17 is the level at which I will start a minimum sale, but hey, I'm here for the true investment.
We're at a stalemate. Most weak hands are gone, now its longs versus the shorts, both true to their convictions. If ER is on the mark or better the price holds until the conference call. If it's worse we might get a dip, but I think the conference call will be Outstanding News. I feel way more confident being long the stock. I couldnt imagine being short given all the rumors. we're talking close to a billion could be in one or two contracts in solar and the glass. LED's float us along to strong in the mean time.
Will Google protect their (liquid glass) technology, smart eye glasses with GTAT technology? It would be a horrible thing to buy a pair of google glasses only to have them scratch up like cheap sunglasses bought from the thrift store shelf
People need to stop worrying about the shorts. I'm convinced the short action is from the $7 range. Until we're in the $6+ they wont worry about profit loss. The shorts are strong on this stock and equally convinced its going down as the longs are that its going up. Longs are getting good action, and I think in the way of NEW investors that see what we see.
Personally I hope the short action remains the same for the time being. I hope the NEW investors are here to stay awhile and not going to bail on the first 15% gain realizing this stock has true potential and the ability to hit $40. YES, I said $40. Imagine if a couple of equipment sales go thru PLUS a cell phone or screen for a tablet at the same time, if this happens, this thing is a rocket.
If the short action is at the levels it is now,,, OHHHhhh Baby!! Especially if the amount of open shares has shrunk my a 2-3 million.
I would love, LOVE to see this company open up or buy a installation company. NOT only make the waffers, or the equipment to make them, but actually build and install their own product. They would have a HUGE advantage on bids for major projects throughout the world. Either that or start building their own solar power plants on a payment basis for cities thru out the world. Start with rural areas to keep the cost low and prove their product is the best and cost effective. projects that cost 10 mil or less. Or maybe merge with RSOL with exclusive rights. They do have a empty factory that hasnt sold yet. Put that baby to use. But this last paragraph is a pipe dream.
98% institutionally owned. I think the $5 rule has LONG been in effect. However, this may open it for funds that like the stock, but have avoided because of the $5 rule. This being said, these NEW funds that MIGHT buy in, will have strong hold on the stock for "investment". they wont buy just to sell at the first run up, they'll be in for the long run. If we have some out there that believe in the stock as much as the people on this yahoo board, it could dry up loose shares real fast. 3-4 funds buying in at 600k shares each, would start a major panic and could possibly send this thing into the mid 20's in a matter of a week. This is a GREAT possibility.
I think with the increase LED sales (demand has been up worldwide) and the decrease in operating expenses by the plant closure alone, theres a better than average chance they beat the street with surprising numbers. 30 day quite period with so many irons in the fire, the surprises could be piling up, to include "a cell phone deal, new equipment sales, ect.
Lets hope for a speedy conference call after the ER
If know one buys the hat I invented and put on the market, and I build another hat, then another. Then a Better hat on top of all those, but still havent sold a hat. All I am is a patent collector. We need sales. this will be the only thing that moves this stock, but when it does, and the sale comes in, this thing will be a rocket. Hold tight to your hat until then
Still shocked over this stock price? I dont understand why. Whens the last time they posted a order? I'M LONG THE STOCK, but realize it could be a couple years before this one is beneficial to my portfolio. The price has been volatile because of people betting on the huge short position, when this doesnt work out the way they planned, they sell and take a minimum loss. Thus the slow grind down on low volume. Short started heavily shorting this thing back in the $7 range. they have little to fear without ORDERS. If your not in this thing for 12-18 months from today, you should simply sell and move on. There will be plenty of room to jump in when it starts moving upward, because the big shorts wont cover until it hits the $6 range or back to back orders come within a month of each other
This stock started getting heavily shorted in the $7 range. Doubt shorts are "Panacking". We have a long way to go before they make a massive run to the gates. I'M LONG the stock, but realistic. News with an upward trend in the mid $5 range is the only thing that will make this stock start a short squeeze. Lets hope NEWS pops soon.
You as a stock holder would rather "sell out for 2 Billion" rather than crush the competition? Some people think so small.
First-round negotiations designed to ease the current solar panel trade spat between China and the European Union (EU) by agreeing on the export price of the products have failed, Chinese trade body sources involved in the talks said on Wednesday…
…At the EU’s invitation, the chamber sent a negotiation team and put forward pragmatic price undertaking plans, but the EU side turned them down flat, refusing to answer questions from the Chinese side, he said.
According to a statement on the chamber’s website, the EU did not show any sincerity in tackling the problems, leading to the breakdown of the talks.
Now can GTAT capitalize on this situation? Looks like American based companies are back in the picture.
I wonder why GTAT isnt going after the paperless log book makers like Honeywell to install screens on their units? ALL semi trucks are supposed to go paperless logs by 2014. These have a touch screen and take the bouncing worse than a GPS and will be required to be handled many more times than one. wouldnt it be nice if they supplied the screen and a solar unit mounted on the roof making the unit power on without drawing juice from the truck itself? Your welcome for the lead CEO's of GTAT if your reading this. All investors are welcome to the Honeywell tip that will cause an increase in revenue from a policy that is MANDATED by the government
