years ago , a current employee told me about Mickey Mouse dancing around and FED was
going to rocket to the moon ..
so much for the view from line workers ...
i believe that his holding was about 75 million shares .. that's over $300 million rev from the div ....
that's a good deal more money than you will make in a lifetime ..
what brings you to this conclusion Don ?
I haven't seen anything from the company and bad news should be out ahead of the er ... garce
Don , remember that the bonding issue was the result of customers pushing
the envelope past the recommended limits ... that was not a science thing and
very quickly resolved ... Yes, Bill intimated a former employee as his source ,
having spent a career in mfg and working with engineering , the view from
the lower levels is often skewed and misunderstood ...
IF there were serious problems , i highly doubt that Emagin would have received the
recent contracts ...
also , at the last CC both AC and JP were having difficulty maintaining their
normally stoic selves .. and there was much discussion concerning glasses and
consumer products with a strategy to enter such a market ..
Also ... we supply the screens to mfgrs of complete systems , which are also
in their own develpment , so it's difficult to pinpoint the sluggishness with
volume acceptances ... g
BTW .. have you ever seen a microcap hang around as long as Emagin w/o
fizzling out or getting swallowed up ... longevity is testament to something ..
Then logically you must give credit to the people who actually PAY TAXES, not the ones who TAKE TAX funds from the GOVERNMENT who hands it out to them. One group contributes, the other group takes it.
Google .. Hassidic communities .. find out just how much is being sucked out .. by their own proclamations,
they encourage large families , avg = 6 children , they don't marry in a civil ceremony and no license so
that all the unwed mothers can collect welfare .. then there is a whole host of other things that they
can get away with and only a handslap , from illegal voting to ambulances to synagogues ...
Kiyras Joel started in the mid 70s with about 2500 people .. now 25000 people and 94% received
public assisatance , all the while , the run the diamond business using handshakes and cash .. g
basically , once the sale is done , warranty work has to be between customer and mfgr .. some items have a 30 or 90
day deal from HD ...
wow .. you should see how the associates are treated .. HD will run this thing until it
blows up on them .. just like the venerable Walmart ...
i wouldn't put them LBJ's company ... Johnson was a POWER politician and a rational man ... Obama can't
get anything done and neither can Hillary .. both have a lot of fluff , good stories and that's about it , when
they come up against well honed politicians ,they wind up sounding like 12 year olds .. garce
would really like to know the specifics of why the former emp thinks there is something out of
skew ... does he/she disagree with direction ? is he/she aware of some potential contracts that
mgmt declined to go for ? from my experiences , most employees have a dim view of the
way that mgmt handles things ... What was the emps level ? operator ? inspector ? engineer ?
or just a normal gripe ?
In criminal court cases , hearsay holds no water , because hearsay is just that .. probably incomplete
or flavored by a single individual's perception ..
If we had more to work with , then you might actually have a decent discussion going on here .. g
c'mon Phil , you weren't born yesterday .. the $37 install is a come on ... most likely
only applies to certain carpets . once the salesperson gets involved , there is upselling and
who knows what .. whatever the conditions are for getting the $37 deal wind up being
what few people actually want or wind up settling on ... Lowe's does the same thing .. g
Visit the millwork dept the next time they have "free measures" or discounts on certain
doors/windows ... for the most part , the install cost for a door is more expensive than
the door itself .. wanna pay 354 to have a 129 door installed ??
once VZ div gets to the S&P avg div , it might be time to take a little off the top , before then , ignore the white
noises and any voices that do not have a person in the room .. g
i believe that 1 year from now , that balance sheet is going to look very good .. shouldn't be too much capex
coming and once the debt has been jiggered , that strong CFC is going to be able to service debt and
start boosting the div by healthy amounts .. g
