it's great ... makes for fantastic theater .. but also consider this .. VZ is coming from a position of
great strength , as evidenced by it's decision to tear off a big scab and get the fight started , that
will wind up benefitting them (yes, and T too) down the road ....
it takes time to make a paved road , but it's worth it later on when you want to go for a nice
drive .. .g
that would be nefarious ...
could it be that Emagin is actually in somebody's takeover sights and a hostile action is taking place ??? LOL ..
i doubt that , but this is a speculation thread , eh ???
ever since Mort and AS rode into town , Emagin has been a stealth company .. remember
Gary "Kookaid" Jones ?? and all of the hype that was put out there ????
Just a quick look at the resumes of the execs and the BOD , will show that these folks
are not dummies ,, they are the types who put together a good game plan and stick
to it , AND refuse to be influenced by the white noise ... g
I could understand all of the negative posts here ... IF IF IF .. there was some other
company successfully marketing OLED devices , fact is nobody has much traction
here .. a condition that will probably exist for 2-3 more years , as LED , LCOS, and the
such reach their physical limitations ...
All of the companies know this and will continue to mile current technologies , even though
improvements are incremental .. and use that time to 1) reduce cost of OLED 2)
bring OLED up another level or two 3) be on the ready for mass production ...
Why spend billions to gear up factories , when mostly depreciated plant/equipment can
churn out countless widgets with high yields and high margins ..
To be certain , some of the companies are going to miss or get behind the 8 ball ,
but that's how business operates ... either you act/react to short term conditions , or
bite the bullet and make/execute longer range plans ....
too bad we can't post links , but it brings a song to mind:
"Our Day Will Come" ... g
now yer spoilin' all the fun ... lol ... but that's as plausible as any explanation ... "they " know that not
much will happen here for another 6 weeks .. "they " know what we know , that there will be no
pr's to shake the stock one way or the other and "they" won't have to content with any disrupters ...
same reason why the shorts fool around with us ..
Next er/cc should be a biggie ... 1) will the SNUP continue to improve performance ? 2) Q2 shipments ,
which should be healthy 3) new contracts .. we should get a clearer picture on these matters .. g
will be remembered as something that we salivated for , but expected much different price action ....
I suppose that with the Belmont coming up , there has been a lot of jockeying going on ...
yes , and the other big pharmas are up over 25% , right ? LOL ... in case you hadn't noticed , the whole
group has slowed ... nothing goes up forever , you just have to figure out where you want your money ....
anyone who invests in a large cap , div player and doesn't plan to hold for many years , should do some
examination ... BMY has been doing just fine and has a good outlook going forward ..
NOTE one thing that you could do , is ask mom and dad to get after these nasty companies who
just won't let you become a millionaire in a few months .. that should work .. .g
Whitewater redux ???? the Clintons are smiling crooks , eh ??
i totally agree,but you find many others on this board of that notion ... I've seen it before (and gotten burned) ..
a small company with a good product , partnering with a deep pocket large company , that winds up bleeding
them , or not putting capital into the smaller company , then moving on , or buying up the smaller company ...
for now , i don't that Hal or any other service co. or driller want to buy something like NES , when they
are all working on better fluids/ methods to frack ...
IF HAL was serious , then they would want an NES facility at most or all of the locations that HAL is doing
business , which means growing NES , but i don't see that happening ...
and you can bet that they are watching BMY , maybe one or
two salivating ...
this one surprises me ... the news blurb makes it sound like it's not just the chip manufacturing , but also
development .... the article doesn't say what physical chip plants will go with the deal .... IBM does have
a finger in the Albany pie
tiered pricing would fix the problem .. why should Netflix or anyone be able to build their empires on the backs
of T and VZ ??? you want better downloads .. pay for them ..
if you want a luxury car , no problem , you pay 50K+ for it , instead of buying a compact for 15 K and complaining
that you are cramped and there is no acceleration ...
i took my advice , thank you .. bailed at 196 .. 1st time in 35 years that i have not owned any IBM ...
i don't doubt the strength of the company and feel strongly that over the long haul , IBM will be a dominant
player .. however , investing is not just about a company , but much is about investor psychology and for
the moment and probably another year anyway , investors are not benevolent towards IBM ...
Extremely strong support has been shown around 172 .. if that is breached ,then look for overselling to
take it well below 150 ...then rent a fleet of trucks and load up , but for the time being IBM is a watcher ..garce
with a 200 million shelf registration in play already , which , i believe is for common shares only ,
this filing is to allow for more preferred's and warrants , which would not dilute the commons ..
