And then they try to impune the positive posters as being the ones doing the manipulation. That's another tactic.
Why are they here, posting negative things, if they, or their bosses, have no interest or position in the stock? Why would they waste their time here trying to get you and others to sell at 97 cents?
Anyone with market power like Frick and Frack, can knock down and hold down a low volume stock like QUIK, which only traded 17K shares on Friday. They push it down with one hand, then post "97 cents" with the other, and then say nobody in the market is "interested". They wouldn't be here counteracting every positive post, if there was no market interest.
These are brute force Mob "enforcers", making sure the stock doesn't rise until they want it to, and that they make the money, not you. I've seen this dozens of times on Yahoo.
Just by posing that question the way you did, shows that you have ZERO UNDERSTANDING of the opportunity here for QUIK, or why the number of large smartphone OEMs coming to QUIK (and not others) has gone from 9 to 16 to 19 in the last six months, and the number of smartphone engagements has gone from zero to seven in the same time period.
You have ZERO UNDERSTANDING, yet you continue to bash.
Yesterday's Bosch announcement seems aimed directly at the new China OEMs engaged with QUIK this year. Bosch employs 55,000 people in China, and has at least the top seven Chinese smartphone OEMs as customers. Their 2015 revenue in China was over 11 Billion Euros. Thus pre-qualifying Bosch sensors in the EOS S3 Reference Design is a big deal.
Here is what was said in QUIK's Q1 2016 call:
During the last quarter the net number of significant OEM customer engagements increased by approximately 20%.
This increase was driven by three new smartphone engagements.
Two of these engagements are with top-ten worldwide smartphone OEMs, and the third is with a rapidly growing top-ten smartphone OEM in China.
As a result, the potential value of our engagements increased substantially more than 20%.
In total, we now have engagements with FOUR OF THE TOP-TEN smartphone companies in the world.
We have made substantial progress in strategic Asian markets this year, and we are now engaged with MOST of the top-tier smartphone OEMs in China.
The rapidly growing top-ten OEM in China has to be vivo, as the other Chinese high growers were already in the global top 10.
Omitting Taiwan, there are at least 9 large smartphone OEMs in China. QUIK is now engaged with at least five of them. These 9 are: Lenovo, Huawei, Oppo, vivo, Xiaomi, TCL/Alcatel, ZTE, Coolpad/Yulong and Meizu.
Andy is indicating that QUIK has engagements with at least five of them.
The top 10 smartphone OEMs are Samsung, Apple, Huawei, Lenovo, Xiaomi, LG, ZTE, Oppo, Coolpad, and TCL. vivo was not in the top ten at the end of 2015, but leaped all the way to 5th place as of Q1 this year.
My guess is that QUIK had Samsung and Lenovo before, and have now added three of these four OEMs - Huawei, Xiaomi, vivo and LG, with the other big Chinese names likely to show up soon now that Bosch is pre-qualified.
** it looks a bit large **
Since there are no pictures, how would you know this?
The larger S3 package is the size of the Anode bump on top of a triple-A (AAA) battery.
The smaller package is about 1/10 of an inch on a side. A bit more on one side, a bit less on the other.
Four possibilities for Frick and Frack
1.) They are Short QUIK at $0.98, and support their positions by bashing.
Reasonable, but IMO, not very smart to be continuously short under $1.00.
2.) They have NO position in QUIK, but just watch the stock and bash continuously for years.
Dumb and dumber.
3.) They have a Long position in QUIK, but like to bash against their investment.
That is so dumb, it isn't worth considering.
4.) They work for someone else who has an interest in pushing QUIK lower, and they act as IQ60 board monitors.
Hey, that one actually makes sense, doesn't it?
So tutti and steelingmoney, are you 1,2,3 or 4? An inquiring board wants to know.
So you two are both sitting short QUIK at $0.98 because of short technology cycles and what you deem is "mediocre" management, while QUIK has two major production wins announced for 2016, and 17 more major and growing engagements?
One smartphone win with a major OEM would triple the revenue within two quarters, yet you are sitting short?
Maybe IQ of 30 IS appropriate.
You ARE SHORT, right? Otherwise, staying here for years, bashing is even dumber.
What is your position in QUIK?
So Frack, steelingmoney proves that he can't do it.
That's leaves you, Frick. How about it?
I don't think you can do it.
You posted these as "facts", but things that happened in years past have zero effect on the future.
You say you've read the transcripts. Prove it. Show us your reasons why QUIK is "doomed" going forward.
Nothing before this year counts.
What do you see the everyone else doesn't? Why will QUIK fail in sensors? Why is QUIK "doomed"?
Forward looking facts and comments only.
Like I said, I don't think you can do it. But give it a try - or quite bashing.
Here is what you posted - all meaningless, backward looking stuff.
220 million of losses,
engagements are not production wins,
they should have been profitable 2 years ago,
PICO was a fade,
PEEL was a fade,
VX got in Samsung and that's it **
I peg your IQ at about 55. If it was 30, you wouldn't understand when something was funny in order to laugh at it.
As far as being bullish of QUIK, I was - in 2005 into 2006, then again in mid-2009 into late 2010, then again in mid 2013 into 2014, and now again the last few months.
In between I just watch and wait. You've been bearish since you've been here, and Frack, your lower IQ companion Tonto, has been bearish continuously since 2006. That one may indeed have an IQ of 30.
Don't waste your breath. I give him FACTs, he comes back with SMARTMONEY (which isn't smart at all, just brute force).
Frick is a creature of the market, brain-dead, herd following, paid basher, who can't post FACTS of his own to try to make a coherent argument
** By the time they get a product out, technology has moved away from them? **
I'm taking back those 5 IQ points I gave you and also another 5. In the time between the EOS S3 announcement and now, customers have RUSHED to design it in.
QUIK now has SEVEN SMARTPHONE ENGAGEMENTS in the last six months. Before that they had NONE.
You are so clueless, it's scary, the way you bash without any facts.
Frick has shown he doesn't understand technology cycles at all. If he can read the transcripts, he certainly doesn't understand them.
Short technology cycles are a HUGE POSITIVE for QUIK, not a negative.
In the last 3 earnings calls, QUIK's engagements with top-tier smartphone and wearables OEMs has gone from 9 to 16 to 19. The new ones are large Chinese (think Xiaomi, Huawei, vivo), which have very fast cycles, and added to the very big customers referred to in the February call, who take longer to design in.
Having short technology cycles with these Chinese companies strongly boosts Q4 2016, 2017 and beyond.
It doesn't trigger delisting, it triggers a deficiency letter, which I'm sure these bashers hope to jump on, and are trying to make happen.
After a deficiency letter, the company has 6 months to comply, simply by the stock trading over $1 for 10 consecutive days. If you don't think QUIK will be over $1 in January, then you shouldn't be long the stock.
I figured you would show up again. I would offer you lessons, except you didn't make my IQ cut.
"doomed" et tu Fricke?
Is tutti your alter ego? Dumb as he is, he still seems smarter than you. You posted consistently negative #$%$ while QUIK made a 10-bagger from 2008-2010 (as did I). If IQs could be negative, you would be a prime candidate.
Hey! It's a blast from the past! Cute using "03", which was the year you first started posting on Yahoo.
How are your buddies ty_webb_25 and goldfilings - or were they just your alter-egos?
Say, weren't you once a Santa Barbara dentist, or was that Ty?
I get confused, are you still 55, or have you turned 56 yet?
You guys worked this stock back in 2008, when you pushed it sub-$1 the last time, and now you're back doing it again - or do you just have steelingmoney as a new alias since 2006?
Ooh! You used a big word. Liquidity! And you even spelled it correctly. I just raised my IQ estimate up 5 points to 65. It's stil a combined total though.
Who in the world would be holding from $5.50? I made tons of money here, buying sub-1$ in 2008 and selling in the $5.50 - $6 range in 2010, and I'm getting ready to do it again. It's just a matter of patiently waiting (and waiting). Soon it will be time for the big reveal, and then you will crawl back to whatever rock you came from.
Dumb and dumber.
Frick and Frack.
steelingmoney and tuttiperuno.
One talks of delisting, the other says the company is doomed. There is no basis for comments like these, except to possibly scare people to sell below $1.00. The company is in no danger, and is only two quarters away from a strong revenue ramp that will include 7 smartphones, and wearable devices from the top OEMs.
I guess hedge funds will hire ANYONE these days to tag team on message boards.
