    Thanks everyone for your input. By the looks of after hours it seems we will be in an upward momentum for tomorrow. This could get really fun. My broker not only agrees with you gkeller but probably feels $26 is conservative, and he is out there talking to CYBE management... he said just wait until the strong buys start rolling in and CYBE quarters start looking even better as their products gain more and more traction in the upcoming quarters. He feels this should be a very long term hold and that we are just in the beginning of a strong movement upward over the next few years.

  • Wow.. eveything I read in the earnings report looks like we are off to the races with so many comment like the following: "Our 3D-enabled systems and sensors are gaining significant traction in the marketplace, and we believe this momentum will continue during 2016." I can't wait to hear from some of the more tech savy longs on this board on their take of the report and conference call. Longs... please grace us all with your comments tonight ... looking forward to them ... thanks :-) jf

  • My impression is that it will be positive with positive forward guidance and the start of another move up. I hope that is the case tonight. Good investing to all :-) jf

    June of 2000 CYBE was about $46 per share.

    What impact will the new products that are coming online for CYBE have as we move through 2016... these new products seem to be the reason for such strong optimism that they are in the sweet spot and will be for some time...

    Help me out here though... they are talking about just their current products but as their new products come on line and start ramping up, doesn't that create a whole new layer of rapidly growing revenue. I might be wrong, but my perception is their current product line is making them a lot of money PLUS they additional products coming on line that is going to send their profits through the roof over the next few years... if I am understanding this correctly, their time has come, and we could see CYBE back in the $40 range... they have never made this much money, even when they were $40 years ago. Do you folks think my reasoning is correct about what is developing at CYBE right now?

    PROFIT THIS YEAR?

    Yes they expect to be profitable by mid 2016. I like the products they currently sell. It seems they have other products in the pipeline to tap into the growing health conscious folks who are moving away from soda to healthy nutritional drinks.

    Hey, anyone out there anymore? I have been encouraged this is a real company. I was in a Colorado Springs, CO Walmart store recently and their products were prominently displayed and the manager said were selling well. Any thoughts? Anyone?

  • I don't know anything about this group but I found a research report on Fidelity that Columbine Capital came out with a report on April 16, 2016 moving their recommendation on CYBE from Hold to BUY! The bottom of the research report says... "Columbine Capital Services is an independent equity research firm with offices in Colorado Springs, CO... provides quantitative research and consulting services to professional money managers and large institutions worldwide..."

    So, maybe we are starting to get noticed. It seems we are basing here. I wish I knew what it takes for CYBE to get noticed and a bunch of analysts putting out BUY recommendations. Do you guys think we will get a bunch of BUY ratings next week with their positive report coming? What gets them noticed so we get huge volume and the next leg up into the $20 range?

    mpackard, gkeller, cometfinder and other longs who have been very helpful.. would you please comment if you think we will get another bump up after earnings... I am thinking we are basing around $15 and could get another nice move up after earnings and a positive conference call, but would appreciate your perspectives... will we get analysts giving us a buy recommendation; it seems Intel has new chips coming out that need CYBE's products and this company could really ramp up... what's you gut on where the stock price goes after next week?

    It seems we are anticipating a pretty positive outlook...do you think we will get some analysts noticing CYBE and issuing a buy recommendation?

  • I like the new addition to the BIOS management Board: " Mr. Bronfein has founded or co-founded and grown a number of companies during his more than 20 years in the healthcare industry. Mr. Bronfein focuses on healthcare services, technologies, software and distribution. Most recently, Mr. Bronfein served as Chairman and CEO of Remedi SeniorCare, which grew from a start up to the fifth-largest long term care pharmacy in the United States."

    Did we break through some old resistance today? Seems like we are gathering momentum :-)

    They said in the preannoucement that margins were great and they expected strong earning next quarter and all year. Lots of people getting in at these levels. Hazard a guess where we base after the conference call... $24 after the conference call next week? Maybe even that is too conservative? This was once $40 with less than these new products. .. I am told almost every chip maker will need CYBE's technology. Jf

    Expenses and Lumpiness Q to Q

    Hi gam... you sound very knowledgeable. What is your back round and relationship to CYBE? All I really know is what my broker, who attends their public presentations, tells me. He is very convinced this is just getting started in the move up and will probably double or triple from these levels in the next year. He talks about the humidity product line as something essential to new chip production and CYBE doesn't have competition and that Intel and other big chip makers are very interested. However, I am not an electronics expert, so my understanding is vague but it seems like CYBE is in the sweet spot. Could you expand on your knowledge of their product line, especially the humidity product line and large customers lining up to buy their machines? thanks, jf

    Hey gkeller and cometfinder and other longs... I would love to get your opinion ... do you think we base here or maybe a slight pullback and then move up further after earnings if we have a great conference call ?

    P.S. it doesn't look like the big guys have even discovered us yet. Wait till the analysts come out with their buy ratings (late as usual)...

    IMHO, one would be simply foolish to sell any of CYBE at these levels based on what we know and what is coming. There is too much excitement coming, and my strategy is not to even think of selling before we cross the $20 mark. If it pulls back, I will be adding. Again, that is simply my take on where this stock is headed. Happy investing to all :-) Hey, congrats to all you longs who have been CYBE because it looks like we are going to have fun over the next few quarters.

    Then you haven't researched this company very well because this move is just the start of a move toward $20-$30/share. Buying in at these levels is still a bargain .
