Skeet, thanks for another interesting post. Surely, the Arch's machers carefully
calculated their move with lawyers; and evidently concluded that the deal with Verdant, even with the possible anticipated penalty which court could oblige them to pay, they would be still better off in the warm Verdant's company. Regarding Verdant's possibilities, taking into account what you discovered about its “association” with GEM, I wonder if any reliable information can now be drawn about their financial situation. Recall that they obliged themselves to invest four mln dollars, according to the terms of their merger with Arch. Therefore, they should have some real money to fool around, looking at some knowledge rich company lustily. Your opinion, please.
Another annoying news from the judge's chamber: the next court session is deferred to 12 March of the next year. Perhaps this long delay will cool the heads of the sparring parties and they will finally come to an agreement. Of course, their lawyers will do their best to prevent this from happening.
Yes, it is possible that our little dot makes some money from its past VC with ENS. But why the management is so secretive?! Is it afraid that the peasants would ask for dividend? Yeah, sure there is something for them to be apprehensive about.
I looked up the zeitung. It is now belong to history. We have a large trading volume today.
We also had the Judge talking to the bikering sides today as well. Absence of information
Skeet, I of course read the post that makes you angry, and I agree that it is far from being an exemplary exposition of what you had written previously. However, I do not think he did it intentionally. Look, you ought to remember that he and some others, who are quite active there and are heavily invested in our little dot, are old people. You cannot expect to see their thought processes to be robust and error resistant as yours; and I trust you are far from being old. So, no need to take their mistakes too seriously.
As for Hag, he is exactly the opposite case. His brain produces considerably more ideas than it is capable of evaluating them sensibly. Hence his errors, which again should be taken lightheartedly. Nu-s, as for our inimitable comrade Denis, whether residing in Boston or Atlanta or elsewhere, it would be highly desirable to discuss his omissions in the presence of his psychiatrist. The man is sick rather literally than metaphorically. Only Gold, rather geriartrically, continues to take him seriously, despite the slew of insults he gets from him regularly. He is a s(c)tinker and therefore his company should be avoided.
As for our company, also inimitable, I almost lost hope that we will see either a SEC filing from it or a final verdict from the judge before this year is over. I would be happy to be wrong on both accounts. What do you think?
Skeet, welcome back. Regarding Verdant, I trust one needs at least double quantity of cerebral hemispheres in order to make sense of what they earn, presumably nothing, and what they extremely generously spend (professional fees, travel etc). Since I have only two of those in my skull, I do not feel myself intellectually fit to shed light on that mysterious entity. Judging by how Rickeyrat insistently refers us to it, perhaps he has as many of those neuronal structures as it necessary to crack the problem. Rick, give us your best.
Yes, now it's Eltek's turn to go crazy. Israel has many brilliant high tech companies. As a matter of fact, practically every week an Israeli high tech company is bought, mostly by Americans.
Our little dot behaving well today, at least for the time being. I might follow your example and add some more tomorrow. But I am most intrigued by Camtek. It has a revolutionary product. I also believe that it and onvo are still immodestly overpriced. Good luck. P.S. What the "fwiw" means?
Seanoise, I see you are a trader with relevant skills to justify that distinction. As for me, I am much slower person and being such I usually go for long term choices. That inclination does not save me from mistakes which can make themselves felt accordingly, i.e. long term as well. I heard however, that no matter what time perspective people take for navigating the stock market, all of them receive unavoidably their personal lesson in humility.
I like onvo. I also like camt, which I discovered several days ago. I did not do much DD, yet my impression is that the second will begin make money much sooner than the other one. Is it also your impression?
I agree with Wallace that gthp is under the selling pressure from the latest warrants offering. Quite annoying to see the large value that the stock has lost during the intervening period. The impression is that our little, underdeveloped company is being dragged without pity by a large roller coaster machine.
Rick, why we should give a damn or whatever about Tesla while we are nurturing a well perceptible headache about our little dot.
Seanoise, how is your moral today? Probably, as mine with GTHP. However, I trust things will improve when these waves of bloodletting wear off. Cheers.
So, you are taking a sabbatical from the board. Nevertheless, be around please, and should you research something interesting, share it with us. All the best.
Yes, it was easy to guess that your email was deleted. Why? Did it contain any so-called personal attacks?
I find your post very interesting. I thought, too, more often than sometimes as to what happened to EAS and with the ENS obligation to fill LTHU's orders should any appear. That is a very good news if that obligation have had conformable material leads. Then indeed, you are right, that our little dot is not exactly in the state of clinical death. May it be so.
By the way, what do you think about the forthcoming Twitter's IPO? I wonder hesitatingly if I should partake of it.
Bonne chance a toi aussi.
Skeet, I think those companies failed because they tied themselves to the products that proved to be inferior. Also they were a bit before their time. Whereas in the case of LTHU, there were its batteries for sale, but there was no massively presented product on the market whose failure could precipitate its own. In general, it is painful to see a technologically advanced company guided by machers. This happens not only to small companies. I remember quite a few years ago IBM was lead by a lawyer. By the way, such idiosyncrasies practically never happened in Japan.
Look, perhaps it has something to sell indeed, if it opened a sales office in D. Perhaps, ENS is churning some batteries for it. All we need currently is to see the company becoming more talkative. It appears that FN took to the court not only Arch Hill, but LTHU as well. How refreshing to know all that.
Skeet, thanks a lot for your another informative post. Yes, the company has a truly bewildering number of “juicy” connections with the most respectable companies of Germany. I am afraid that 1) too much water has flown down the drain and 2) the management was largely turned in, giving too much attention to intercompany intrigues, which eventually brought it to the sorry state it finds itself presently. I suppose you bought shares of that company, as I did and many others, inspired by the high technical level of lithium batteries it had the competence develop. Unfortunately, it did not have the management of the same level of sophistication.
If you have already visited RB, then you know, what I loathed to see, that the two highly esteemed sides have agreed again to disagree. Worthless managers. The only intermediary hope, so to speak, is to finally receive a new SEC filling from LTHU prompted by Verdant.
Skeet, glad to see you returning to our cozy, not too crowdy abode. By the way, I wouldn't mind to have a glass of that Düsseldorf's lemonade right now. Yes, it is another deep mystery of our infinitesimally little dot to have a sales office there. But if it can sell its batteries in that city's old quarters, which are architecturally quite nice, let it be so.
On a more serious note, tomorrow is 31 October and that day could be either quasi-historical for us or just another LTHU day, i.e. boring and empty of content.
In the meantime, while you were absent, our club has acquired a new member Adele Gail. Adele loves Facebook, and I hope that we have plenty of time to gently advance our acquaintance. On the other side of the equation, RB has lost -seemingly, just seemingly – its most valuable poster, Denis. On Gold's suggestion, a three-day mourning will be marked on RB. Got a handkerchief?
I see you may well be a very serious wine connoisseur. Considering the motto in vino veritas, I wonder that a man with your seeming competence in those matters would look for an advice from the heads that may be too sombre to give a qualified one. Indeed, having just a bottle of Absolut in my fridge and a half bottle of Chateux Laroque on my dinner table, I don't really feel qualified enough to give you the advice you are looking for. Perhaps Skeetballer would dare to disclose his cellars secrets along with a couple of jabs at Verdant's financial posture. As for our little dot, look, after the spectacular drop in its price, the dramatic phase of our involvement with it has ended a long time ago, exposing the comic side of our past hopes. It is not the time to sell, for there is nothing to sell (to buy a couple of beers?!). It is the time to nurture our second phase of our continuous enchantment with it, hoping that FN and Verdant, once the current court saga is over, will share a peace pipe good-humorously and will start a serious lithium battery production thereafter. But don't bet your Pinot Noir on it just yet.
