    OMG !

    According to pocket-lint dotcom, the following (google it - and there are some nice pictures on that website of the tablet rainbow)- some pretty serious marketing there!

    Samsung unveiled a Super AMOLED rainbow installation on London's Southbank on Tuesday evening, which consisted of 150 Galaxy Tab S devices.

    The Midnight Rainbow installation measures 14 foot high and 26 foot wide and it uses the screens of the company's flagship Galaxy Tab S tablets to represent the colours of the rainbow.

    The Samsung Galaxy Tab S launched in June this year and it is available in 10.5-inch or 8.4-inch screen sizes, both of which come with a 2560 x 1600 Super AMOLED display, along with a great 6.6mm slim design, plenty of power and a fingerprint reader.

  • Maybe Goldman Sachs knew something when they set a target price of 50 for OLED. Maybe it'll take a few months to get there. AMOLED TVs are finally here! 50 seems feasible. How about the old triple digits?

  • I noticed the large award winning LG curved AMOLED TVs are being featured in the windows of the PC Richards on 14th St (NYC). Pretty cool looking.

    Should we continue or mount a coup

    As the earth is flat and the sun goes around it everyday, i have confidence that the man on the moon is watching over us and will not let that happen. The unviverse was created in an ideal way so that we will have happy endings to all our stories. Do not worry. IDND wll make us all millionaires within not very long a time.

    Under the terms of the Agreement, the Company and Eli Lilly will work together to conduct a study to determine the feasibility of developing and manufacturing certain diagnostic test kits for the measurement of certain materials. Each party grants rights to use its respective technology to the other party under the terms of the Agreement. The Agreement continues in effect indefinitely unless and until terminated by either party in accordance with its terms. A copy of the Agreement, in redacted form pursuant to Rule 24b-2 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, is filed herewith as Exhibit 10.1. The foregoing description of the Agreement does not purport to be complete and is qualified in its entirety by the full text of the Agreement, as filed herewith.
    I wonder how this will impact our bottom line. I assume CONX would be the supplier of kits they are interested in using, and CONX would have the right to produce them for others? That would be huge, but more mid-to-long-term, correct? But it is a very good relationship to have their confidence, helps the Corgenix brand, and may help CONX market their products to others. Cheers.

    Once we know 'when', then I also will wonder what is going to be in it. For example(s): Exactly how much progress have we made in working with our International partners? Have any of our relationships resulted in new orders? If so, specifically Which one or ones? I will also ask to myself if not to anyone else, "What is the latest news on progress regarding our products and our old business partner, Pepsico?". Where are we along those lines? And I would like to know exactly what else is in the report when it is publuished so I will read it. Beyond that, when is it expected that IDND will be back on a legitimate exchange and trading above $10.00 a share, and by whom, and why? Do you have any questions? Anyone have more questions we may or may not find out the answers to in the very near term, medium or long term?

    QLED Introduction

    google 'problems with quantum dots' and you will get a lot of hits! To be fair, they have advanced a bit since 1980 and they have developed ways to manage them and produce them in higher quantities but currently they are still in their infancy and do still have toxicity issues, and some efficiency issues. They may find a niche and QD Vision/ Nanosys have developed an architecture for a tablet. Those companies might go public in 2015. But I don't think Qdots by themselves for OLEDS and OPVCs will be able to keep up with OLEDs. Right now there is hardly enough commercial grade supply for the 75 million dollar market. To me it seems like it is still a difficult proposition at this time. They are cheaper but are more toxic than OLEDs. They blink and hop around and have efficiency problems according to one article I saw. But there may be a niche for them in some medical applications, or may be used in conjunction with OLEDs or OPVCs, just as bucky balls and nano-needles are or can be. They won't replace standard PHOLEDs and PPVC materials, but might enhance them if anything. Just trying to be objective - not encouraging or trying to excite Danny Q. DotontheOLEDboard.

    FTR 1-yr Return = 50%

    by sage2123 Aug 6, 2014 11:07 AM
    jackgotney jackgotney Aug 6, 2014 2:21 PM Flag

    I like dividends too. In 65 quarters you have all your money back and have all the FTR stock you bought, giving you money for free. Also I bought 1700 shares. Each year I can by a round lot of 100 shares assuming it stays under 6.75 with the dividiend. In 7 years I will have 2500 shares, and it is possible they might raise their dividend at some point before that. But even if not and the price is still the same it will a net asset value increase for me of nearly 50%. A good low risk hedge against inflation.

    FYI - I thought it was funny at first when I found out my dad's stock portfolio once consisted of about 10 shares of stock. One was a share of IBM he bought for $500 back in the 60s. Today that one share would be worth over $1 million. However he sold it as soon as he tripled his money! He showed me a statement once and encouraged me to buy stock with the $10 I had saved. I bought 1 share Ohio State Insurance for some unknown reason *(around $8) at the time and finally sold it to get my money back. It seems to no longer exist.

    Flesh eating ebola virus trolls have taken over this board. It must be moved into isolation soon or it could spread to other boards. But first I want to point out that OLED is sitting where it was in 2011 (around 30) despite all the great advances and improvements. It must have all the worst news in the world built into it. If it is good news on Aug 7th will we automatically rocket back up into the 60s (just to make up for lost time + a short squeeze acting as propellent)?. Comments?

    You assert management is laughing at you. Can you provide a link? Also FYI - last year the second qtr report came out on August 9th. So if you are on the edge of your seat for an update, there just might be one in the next 10 days. Greg Abbot is probably working on it as we speak. Oh it would be so nice if contains word from Pepsico!

  • Most AH trades were at 6.81 including last trade. Only one seller dumped 1000 shares in th 6.60s range. Muted reaction indicates mainly this was inline with expectations and decent, especially compared to the 33 million shares trading up today, the AH action was not even really worth mentioning except that I think a lot of longs are glad that's how it is. Cheers.

  • Aside from the penny off miss, revs were in inline rounded to the 100 million. Report is generally looking good which in that depsite the miss is very close to inline and supports that FTR is no longer in a free fall. The free fall in operating income seems to have nearly stopped vs first quarter. And regrading net income we made 38 mill vs loss 37 million same qtr 2013. Free cash flow increased by 40 mill over same qrtr 2013. .04 eps and non-gaap eps is .05. :Revenue decline has slowed markedly; At this rate we will see improvement in next report in top and bottom line. . I am only concerned with security of the dividend. I ain't worried. Maybe they will consider increasing it?

    Awful Quiet

    by therealitycheck38 Aug 5, 2014 12:41 PM
    jackgotney jackgotney Aug 5, 2014 1:46 PM Flag

    'Stupid' shorts you mean. Like Zacks with its sell rating. High dividend shorts are stupid to short because you not only have to pay a certain margin rate, but you have to pay the missing dividends to the person you borrowed the stock from in order to sell it. The long person collects the dividends directly from the company. Now that FTE is up due to market percieved reduction of risk to the dividend, the yield is lower, but dividend is the same, however, company in a better position to grow. But so what? No biggie. You can pay yourself dividends instead by selling a few shares here and there as the price goes up, which is the more efficient way to collect dividends. That money is not double taxed. It costs the company nothing and instead of paying income tax, you just pay the lower rate of the capital gains tax. shhhh don't tell anyone.

    OLED most overrated stock of all time

    jackgotney jackgotney Aug 5, 2014 11:39 AM Flag

    I bought hundreds and hundreds of shares just because OLED has finally gotten too dang tired of not going up. If it now doubles inside a year, don't blame me, but I will sell half my shares and keep the other half for posterity.

    or 4th quarter - In don't know. probably this year I would expect.

  • jackgotney by jackgotney Aug 4, 2014 2:18 PM Flag

    Zacks article didn't make a lot of sense. Emhasizing misses, judging FTR based on Zacks ratings and not on company factors. Yet in the last 4 quarters they were pretty much in line (in line 2 quarters, beat by one penny in the 3rd qtr and missing by 2 cents in the latest). I just think they are now in a great spot with almost a billion cash, after last quarter paying 400 million in divs, and paying down more than twice that amount in debt. Let's wait and see. I am obviously more optimistic than Zacks which so far this year has been behind the 8 ball with their sell rating.
