since this is actually a stock message board , i will point out that economists are also
scientists ... ever see how 2 economists can look at the same data and argue about
the outcome .. why should other scientists by any different .. scientists theorize ,
engineers develop ..
the SUN is getting hotter .. and as is dies , it gets much larger .. someday it will engulf the Earth
and planet from Mar out will become much warmer and may actually go though an evolution similar
to Earth ..
i understand that i am not qualified to value the portfolio ..
did you read my post , i did not try to put a value on the portfolio or any part of it ..
i also used the word PROBABLY ...
certainly , IBM would never let their best patents go anywhere , but IBM does have a rich
history of letting patents die without ever monetizing them ...
i think that Chris Christie would like to keep Ft. Lee in New Jersey , especially since the
bridge has been reopened .
what offends me is the gross misuse of stock message boards ...
also drivers who pass on double yellow lines , tailgate at high speeds and weaving on highways ...
also the Hassidic movement in NYS really aggravates me ..
frank , what i took from that was that they will market the ihmd .. shipping chips to the
goggle maker to assemble ... and also that a household name was looking at the 2 x 2's
for their own headset ...
the water drip method of disseminating information leaves some holes .. g
all depends on what patents they sell ... i worked there for 32 years and some of the things that received
patents are ????? many are useless to any other company , as they never made the same stuff or in the
same manner as IBM ...
but , IBM could probably sell about a dozen patents and recoup that 7 bil, but that will never happen ..
IBM should be mining that patent trove , though , it makes perfect sense .. maybe now that they are
no long producing any chips , they might start to license a lot more stuff , unless there is some
contractual small print with Global that would prohibit such actions ..
They also have many patents for products that are so far out in the future that they will never be used ,
as there will be more advances before those times come .. garce
and all you are is a basher who adds nothing to a discussion ..
i've met enough of people like you back in high school , and
sadly , throughout my career ...
bid / ask ratios constantly change sometimes we see a penny , sometimes a lot more .. but then
most small caps get this , just like we can see 250k volume and the price moves a nickel , then
a 100 share trade can move the needle a quarter .. .
Frank .. some of this is certainly confusing , my take is that they are looking to market their own hmd , while
also selling displays for someone else (household name ????? ) to market theirs ... all revolving around the
2 x 2 chip ...
Dan said more prototypes coming .. he made it sound like an easy thing to remove 1 green subpixel for a blue
subpixel .. no science involved , just make it ... and , as always , shooting for more nits ... don't know if
the "shell" needs any work ...
as per usual , facts will be dispersed in the manner of the water drip method .. .
sounds like a #$%$ philosophy .. doesn't it ??
things are out of balance .. IF the govt wants to cut off cancer treatments for people over an age ,
then they had better well bless euthanasia !!!!!!!!!!!!!!
ya can't have it both ways in the mortal world and that includes governments !!! garce
touche ... we'll get a different picture as the hedgebooks mature
and actual revs begin to come down ..
again , even tho' the pipes have some insulation from price
swings , there are limits and TIME is the factor .. the longer the
prices stay low or high , the affects grow geometrically ..
i'm still watching and continue my dd on energy stocks ,
plenty of time to get in , once the bottom is in , it will
most likely be retested , maybe 2 or 3 times .. there will be
no moonshot for oil or gas , but more of a steady climb once
the storm has passed .. garce
yes , i tried to get something started yesterday .. got 1 thumb up and 2 down ...
when i see the idiocy of most stock message boards , i can certainly understand why Hillary will win
the WH ..
aside from that BMY seems to continue to have more upside going forward .. i am particularly interested to
see how Eliquis sales will be going forward , now that there is an approved antidote ...
there is also the spectre of a buyout ... either BMY buying a major outfit or a bigger fish swallowing it up ..
also hoping see some decent div increases over the next couple of years ,if there is no buyout action .. garce
the US president is a MANAGER ....
o must be able to delegate
o put the most capable persons in charge
o willing to forego kudos
o be a good listener
o be willing to change philosophy
o be a leader ...
almost any CEO of a large multinational company would be
aptly qualified ...
maybe that "household name" has it's finger on the trigger ... g
the big guys are not interested in a short term hit , but will want
to buy something that has legs .. as with everything else electronic , after the initial flurry , there will be years of
