I have mulled this possibility over at length. If i remember correctly, the Icahn standstill bars him from forming an activist alliance with other shareholder groups. However, there isn't anything which bars Icahn from voting their shares however they want (I believe there were voting restrictions in the first year of standstill but now expired.. Someone correct me if I'm wrong there. If so, they can be nullified by resigning Brett and Dave's board seats of course which would lift the standstill entirely)
And there isn't anything preventing other 20% shareholders from voting against ricci and the board....
Seems like a giant loophole to me, to your point, tomcat. I'll bet it keeps Ricci up at night too. we can all find some serenity in that!
"NUAN has not experienced the buildout"
but that just it, use. Over the past 12 months the frequency of new product releases - which incorporate VR (often prominently featured) in the product and its marketing campaign - has exploded.
You're spot on regarding no premium though. unloved.
Well does anybody really believed he retired from the teva board for personal reasons? Ha!
He only has so much time to accumulate....
Everyone knows they supply LG. I didn't say they supply apple. may oled longs are speculating we'll get apple watch business. It's not a fact, it's speculation. Apple cannot do amoled without working with universal display though. that is a fact.
If this is prophecy, there's a prophet down the street from me with a sign around his neck that says "The End is near, Jesus saves"
You are probably giving me good advice, cd. I'm still in so many biotechs/oncology - got into ziop with my sgen cash. So my only regret is not selling something different to raise the capital. I have a rule about not jumping back long for the first few weeks after I sell a stock unless I can see a clear change in catalysts. Again it feels like the wrong move in my gut, given yesterday's performance, but the discipline serves me well on the whole so I stick with it. I would certainly consider getting back in to sgen even if (grudgingly) it means at higher prices from here..
youre welcome all sgen longs. i dumped all my shares recently when the chart fell apart. even at the time i felt uneasy doing it. like a slow motion car crash lol. anyway i will take the credit for rally, i just knew if i sold into weakness i would regret it. great company
I've noticed this for years with nxpi. however, recently it's been especially flagrant; nearly every day it's taken down in the morning, and then bid up as the day wears on. very strong.
I don't follow DISCB so I didn't even notice. I'm not sure whats up with that move... probably just the incredibly low liquidity with discb shares... DISCB shareholders have 10 votes per share vs. 1 vote per share with DISCA. My approach to different classes of common stock is generally to go with the higher volume shares. Sometimes I don't even vote mine anyway. I also try to be mindful of the historical spread between classes. The gap widens and narrows. The longer your trade horizon,the less this spread matters though. Ultimately you want to first consider liquidity (DISCB volume makes me avoid the b shares altogether - I mean it's not like I'm going to take over the company any time soon;) and also consider if voting rights actually matter to you.
billy, I don't know when things will turn around for nuan but chart is clearly looking a LOT better than it has in recent weeks, months... I don't put any weight in yahoo mb predictions but TA's a different story
yeah. that's why I posted again. hate it when they remove valid posts while allowing the idiots and the bots...
I've been doing some research on ToyTalk. It's not clear who powers their VR. Nuan's former CCO works for them and it's obvious they didn't write their own VR software in the company's short life.
From a website called FastCompany:
With its software resident on Amazon's S3 platform, ToyTalk is gaining valuable expertise in scaling mobile memory and storage. And while the company is staying mum about which vendor is providing its speech recognition technology, the partnership is expected to yield valuable data about the quirks of childhood speech patterns.
