Where did you get these numbers? I have not seen any proxy vote info yet for the shares I hold? Did I miss something. I am obviously going to be voting 'no' so if I am not given the opportunity to vote my shares, then something is really wrong here. Has some kind of voting documents already be sent to shareholders? I am at a loss here.
I had that dream too but then I woke up. Turns out a favorable ruling will only take it to $5.50 but I am okay with that because it will just be the start of slow but serious run to $10 by next July. After that, who knows. GLTA
is that the more desperate (or worried) the shorts get about the potential increase in the price of AVNR, the harder they work at creating fear and doubt in order to hold the price down for as long as possible. Today is a perfect example -- down 6.6% on no new (positive or negative). Mark my word, tomorrow morning most of todays losses will be 'recovered'.
? Because the future for AVNR is so compellingly bright that even 'momentary fear' will quickly be offset by 'rational thinking'. Such is the plight of the wood pile rats -- the shorts. If they were smart, they would start to head for he door well ahead of a favorable court ruling for AVNR. Then, on the heals of that news, they will quickly be hit in the chops by an EU partnership or 'go it alone news' on the EU front.
Mark my word, we have all been waiting for a 'short squeeze' to happen for the last 2 years. Well, we are now on the verge of seeing that happen. And, believe me, it will be the Mother of all short squeezes. My advice is: don't be caught on the sideline for this one!!! It will be fun to watch if you are long. If you are short, OH WELL!!
Trade, I know your post was about EU, but do you know if there is any real hard decision date on this generic trial? It would seem to me that there should be, but I do not recall any details about this being discussed on this board. Perhaps Places could weigh in on this question since it appears he understand the legal system and patent challenges quite well.
This issue not only has consequences relative to the maximum time Par would have to settle and it, of course, will dictate the timing of any meaningful EU activity as well. Thanks.
Talk about bad Karma!!! Keith is probably having second thoughts. That said, "this too will pass". The shorts are just having their 'fun' for the day (or two or three).
Sarge, (as you know) this is just 'par for the course'. Nothing to get too concerned about in my opinion. Over the last 10 years or so, we probably have seen this happen a 100 times or more. So, nothing really new here. Just a way for the shorts to 'shake' the tree' and see if they can pry loose some shares from the weak hands. Nothing more/nothing less.
I agree. The 'games people play' when $$ are at stake. The shorts will fail again once they have had their fun for the day.
It is showing some positive signs of doing that. If it can go green today that bodes well for positive price action next week. One hour and ticking. Let's see if the long term buyers can move it North and force the shorts to retreat with their tails tucked between their legs.
SSccchheeeech!!! If you are not used to price swings in AVNR you bettter find something else to trade.
With a $4.26 downside floor, there just is not much downside risk right here. In terms of upside, $6 by year end is a very real possibility. Once this joke of a 'generics' trial is over, we are headed much higher. Buy right here if you want to be on the ride up. Just my opinion, of course, but looks at the charts and you will see what I mean. GLTA
Nice response. I know why I am here and it is not because I am shorting this stock like you are 'marketmaker'. Care to volunteer the real reason you are 'here'? Or, would honesty be too much to ask?
I have been here 11 years or more, so just close your eyes and buy at this level. This should be trading at $6 (or more) right now and will certainly do it by year end when the generic lawsuit gets kicked to the curb. In fact, $7 or $8 per share is not out of the question by year end. This is a 'no brainer'. Great entry point right here.
Why doesn't one of them provide some specifics as to what they would do for shareholders to get some results. These law firms are like fishermen who are throwing out a line in the hope they catch something. Let's see some track records if they what some shareholder to 'sign-up' in a class action law suit.
Am sure he had deep concern for AVNR investors. Right!!! What a fool he and you are. Talk about a pile of #$%$ that you are spreading around. Don't step in it on the way to the pottie.
Through all the Gravity lies, etc. AVNR is alive and well. See you at $6 (at least) by year end. Look for generic lawsuit resolution before year end. JMHO of course. GLTA
Global carbon fibre market led by Toray, Toho and Mitsubishi - Industry Sector Industrial

The global carbon fibre market has been forecast to increase at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 11.9% over the next eight years, rising from a valuation of $10.25 billion in 2012, to hit a market value of $25.2 billion by 2020.
The existence of carbon fibre came into being in 1879 when Edison took out a patent for the manufacture of carbon filaments suitable for use in electric lamps. However, it was in the early 1960s when successful commercial production started, as the requirements of the aerospace industry for better and lightweight materials became of paramount importance.
In recent decades, carbon fibres have found wide applications in commercial aircraft, recreational, industrial, and transportation markets as technologies became mature and as the prices of carbon fibre came down.
The global carbon fibre market has grown in importance over the last few years, and carbon fibres are now used in a variety of application industries as varied as aerospace, wind energy, automotive and civil engineering.
Their popularity is due to the fact that they have superior characteristics to traditional materials, including enhanced stiffness, low weight, improved chemical resistance, and temperature tolerance.
Carbon fibre manufacturing is very concentrated: six companies produce nearly 93% of the world's supply. These are: Toray (30%), Toho (18%), Mitsubishi (18%), Zoltek (17%), Hexcel (7%), and Cytec (3%).
The world's largest producers typically make about $10-20 million per million pounds of annual capacity, or roughly $6,500 per composite autobody.
