and i can recall many impatient posts about how Emagin needs to "step it up" ..
some big outfit like SONY , etc could throw a bunch of money and machines at
it ... well , the "big guys" have been hyping AR , VR , HMD and all that rot and
it seems like nobody is delivering ..
this is a long running evolutionary marathon and Emagin remains on a healthy
arc in the curve ...
again .. i study history ... take the light bulb .. it was known as early as
1840's that artificial light was possible from electricity , yet it took almost
40 years before Edison finally got the formula correct , and then another long
period before anyone could make money from the "invention" ..
it will be very good , if by the end 2015 , that Emagin can develop a revenue
stream from a product(s) sold to either military or consumer , and not be
solely dependant on development contracts for revs ...
the military sure seems to be slow to start real buying of OLED hmd's , i
just hope that they have a set of specs that Emagin can strive to meet , instead of
constantly raising the development bar ... garce
thank you ... friggin Jack got that "superstar ceo " thing from the media .. he did a monumental disservice
to a great company .. when Jeff took over , like and new CEO had to get established before stepping
on toes .. he also had a BOD that loved JW ... he was starting to make the right moves (putting up the
appliance div) just when the banks fell apart and everything had to go on hold , then GE capital
got clotheslined ..
Now things are starting to get done , streamlining the company and buying true assets ..
he was probably okay until those big words were used ... i do not recall very many of the drafters of the
constitution as having donned military outfits and froze their tookuses off at Valley Forge ...
toward a 4% dividend ...
personally , i cannot understand the disfavor that GE has with investors .. in the long run , they will not be
taking much a hit from lower gas/oil prices , as they offer solutions to the providers of same to be more
cost efficient , but then they will be reluctant , for a while , to invest much in the way of capex .. g
1st .. millions of jobs will not be lost in the oil/gas sectors ... 10's of thousdands maybe , but not millions ,
then there is the other side of the coin ...
Since the GOVT is loaded with elected persons and persons appointed by the electees , they will go
where the money is ... lower oil/gas prices mean 10's of millions of people have a few more quid to spend ,
AND companies who employ people will enjoy lower costs of doing business and will be able to
shell out some decent raises ... guess who wins ?????
The thing that will really hurt oil/gas companies going forward is that they cannot run their businesses with
part time employees who get no benefits , while retailers and wholesalers can ...
Most likely the next big move in the oil/gas sector will be for robots to do much of the work to keep
costs down and be able to make money with lower prices ...garce .
All that could change in 2017 , if the republicans can keep Congress and gain the White House ... g
agreed , but what if Yahoo itself is paying these guys ...
Yahoo already has the filtering technology .. just try to post a link to anything and it's gone !!!
evidently Yahoo sees a plus to those idiots !!
those companies are not in the same business .... selling refrigerators , Mr. Clean , brooms and mops ,
cheap light fixtures, plastic storage bins and returned merchandise will pull HD through ... lol ... half the
stuff in stores , that HD sells , was never sold by local hardware stores , but most supermarkets do sell
that stuff , including light bulbs !
Also , HD has A-1 customer satisfaction and dedicated , intelligent associates ready to bend over backwards
or forwards to give the customer an exciting experience ... always plenty of shopping carts on hand
praise the good lord and the baby Jesus !!!!! My rectum tells me that movement is imminent .. guess i should
stay in the loo 'til after dark ... sure don't want to miss the move ...
don't forget , in these times , it's important to eat enough fiber and drink plenty of water ... you will enjoy
the movement and possibly profit from it ... garce
btw .. if you want to keep it green , just add some food coloring to your water !!! it works !
AND ... don't forget to post it to FB !!
makes sense to me .. she's a liberal ... liberals like liars because they say what they want to hear ... librals do
not like bitter pills ... g
really ??? i guess that you must be new to the political scene , being
a libral , Obama certainly can take credit for the stock market , as well
as low oil/gas prices ... Librals can do that , a basic tenet of their
philosophy is that they can manipulate their own memories , such that
they can always be in the win column .... LOL ... for land sakes , don't
you remember Al Gore and how he one handedly created the internet ..
Librals are quite a bit like college kids dropping acid ...
Ask your grandparents if FDR came around delivering a chicken to
every house to put in the pot !!!
anyone who buys a div stock and doesn't reinvest is numb ...
Central bankers will not allow the world to spiral into a deflationary depression .. LOL ... neither central
bankers , nor economists have a clue what to do about deflation .. they know to deal with inflation , which can
be busted by very high interest rates , but deflation is not understood ... which is very scary ..
1932 ... the US attempted to defeat deflation .. revalued gold from 20.50 / oz to 32 and it did nothing ..
recently ... near zero short rates have failed to stem deflation for 4-5 years now .. it's a real bugaboo ..
true economic growth will make deflation disappear , but nobody seems to know how to get economies to
grow .. .garce
just like with gold , once the big guys sense the bottom is in , hedgebooks get sold and later new hedges
made .. being hedged with rising prices is a big no-no , they will want exposure to any and all increases
to the max ... as long as more downside is predicted , the hedges will continue to increase in value , so
many will still hold for a while ..
Oil/gas recent decline still only a blip ... oil under 50 for all of 2015 will be stretching the elastic .. eventually
there will be powerful , longer rallies for energy companies , but it's only about the 3rd inning today ..
patience , let prices come to you .. .g
so much focus for HD is on Lowe's , as main competitor ... actually , HD has many competitors and most of
those products are NOT impulse items , no are they exclusive to the fundamental business that HD was
grown from .. people are increasingly buying such things as cleaning products , paint and such elsewhere and
very much online .. yes HD is in the game of buy online pickup in store , but margins on those items is
becoming razor thin .. the newer generation is doing a lot buying on WOOT and other such sites ..
HD is no longer a growth company , from the standpoint of opening new stores , they are chasing an
Amazon model for those items not specific to home building , expansion and maintenance ...
I would view HD as a retail utility ... flat to declining business going forward .. they will still gen lots of
revenue , but margins and earnings are going to slide down ..
I certainly would not buy them here ...
MONEY ... as much as people complain about "the system" , it always delivers what they want , at least the
segment with the most money to pour into something ..
I would like to know why just about every media outlet , these days ... has little positive things to report on
and emphasize all things dire and dramatic ...
first to market is not an end all and many times yields just a brief
window , as for what Eman needs to do, they are doing it , just
that the pace seems very pedestrian because we are here and probably
cannot see the forest clearly for the trees ..
Just look at the heavy hitters who have been touting OLED tv's for
years and how long it took to come to market , the first in's are not
doing all that well , yet .. OLED is a tech evolution , but far too many
people are looking for a revolution and overnight riches .. g
as with any and all other technology , the beginning phase will quickly get crowded ,
companies will misuse buzzwords to gen interest in their products .. people will plunk
down quid for which one they can afford , planning to move up later and the well heeled will
shoot for "best of breed" ... some companies will have flashes , and use older technologies
like lcos , led , but in the long run OLED is going to replace every screen and every light
source in the world .. but that's a 30 year evolution ..
i'm sure that KOPN and others will do quite well for a while , but fade eventually unless they
can develop their own OLED sources .. garce
