    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

    GE marching

    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

    A Question For The Wise Readers Here

    by buyandwin Jan 9, 2015 8:29 AM
    iamgarce iamgarce Jan 15, 2015 4:59 PM Flag

    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 !!

  • iamgarce iamgarce Jan 15, 2015 4:37 PM Flag

    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
    too !!!

    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 !

    Wall street drops on economic worries

    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 !!!

    Consider reinvesting the KMI dividend

    by thewzrdaz Jan 14, 2015 12:59 PM
    iamgarce iamgarce Jan 14, 2015 2:09 PM Flag

    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

    Hedging and its effect on Oil Prices

    by manunited1919 Jan 13, 2015 5:15 PM
    iamgarce iamgarce Jan 14, 2015 1:38 PM Flag

    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 ...

    Virtual Imaging Products ?

    by cane5 Jan 13, 2015 7:53 PM
    iamgarce iamgarce Jan 14, 2015 9:28 AM Flag

    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
