    JBOY, we would only be guessing if they already excercised the full buyout that was approved - not sure where that stands. That said I don't believe for a minute that Corning wouldn't want the Apple info disclosed. It would push the stock up, increase the management profit when selling their stock options and keep the shareholders happy. The non-disclosure is all dictated by Apple. Remember when Apple announced the investment in GTAT Corning stock got hit - Apple had no problem in disclosing that Sapphire was the Iwatch cover material, so why not state that GG is on the Iphone 6 and 6+, its only fair.

    Guys, the Iphone 6 and the Iphone 6+ are using Corning Gorilla Glass - make no mistake about that.. Relax, our day will come. It might be a year off but it will come.

    As I said in this message, Corning needs to get an agreement with Apple to disclose that they are using Gorilla Glass. The PPS S/B much higher based on the Iphone 6 orders - were not getting the bang for the buck.

    iPhone 6 Sans Sapphire: Time to Dump GTAT?

    A number of stocks took a plunge after Apple’s (AAPL-Free Report) Sep 9 event. But the worst hit was GT Advanced Technologies (GTAT-Free Report), which was supposedly supplying sapphire top glass for the iPhone 6.

    These rumors were spiked by a $578 million agreement between the two for the purchase of sapphire goods back in Nov 2013. GTAT shares soared nearly 70% since then and remain around 48% above the pre-agreement level despite the sell-off yesterday. So there is plenty more room for downside and investors could be better off dumping the shares right now.

    Shares of GTAT competitor Corning (GLW-Free Report) barely moved, however, with Corning CEO making the cryptic comment “We keep our secrets.” The secret remains as such mainly because Apple chose not to mention Corning as a supplier, although it did say that the display screen was “ion-strengthened” (meaning that the sodium ions in the glass were replaced by potassium ions). This is the process Corning uses in its Gorilla Glass, which Apple has been using in its devices since their inception.

    But why did Apple decide against sapphire, at least for now? The reason is likely related to the nature of the material, which while being extremely hard and scratch-resistant is also less elastic. The lower elasticity (or flexibility) makes it more susceptible to cracks that ultimately lead to breaks. This is particularly true when screen sizes are larger, as in the latest iPhones.

    The theory also holds water when you consider that the Apple Watch, also unveiled at the event, will use sapphire glass. The smaller screen makes sapphire a better-suited material. In fact, many high-end watches already use sapphire glass. Less

    C2R, you know I've been around a long long time with a ton of shares but I have to say the company is getting on my nerves. They need to get moving on new markets especially in the automotive and building industries where the use of glass is huge, just as fiber optic cable was huge.

    Apple said that the Iphones had Ion processed glass covers and that is Cornings Gorilla Glass process - you are just wishful thinking.

    Idiot, Apple has never mentioned Corning as a supplier. They did say that the Iphones 6 and 6 plus had Ion covered glass, that's Cornings process for Gorilla Glass. Go and bury your head.

    Dummy, the Ion process is used by Corning to make Gorilla Glass. Wake up, there are to many negatives for Apple to cover their phones with Sapphire. Sapphire has a niche market and will do very well.

  • hobomtsz by hobomtsz Sep 11, 2014 11:58 AM Flag

    Corning mgnt needs to have a discussion with Apple mgnt about disclosure. Apple clearly mentioned Sapphire but not Corning. They only said an ion based glass which is part of the Corning GG process. What the hell is the problem with saying Corning is a supplier - lets go Corning work for your shareholders.

    Corning has many glasses that are not called GG. There is Eagle, Willow, the non-bacterial so don't think its not Corning - it is.

    Forget buying GTAT, Corning has made Sapphire glass before so they do not have to buy anyone. Its my guess that Sapphire is not worth making because if it was Corning would make it. Simple. Lets double the dividend.

    You are right, its GG. They used Sapphire on the iWatch whoopee do. When the investing community realizes its GG on the phones the stock should jump up significantly.
