Don't you get tired of spewing the same nonsense? Your rant is a self contradictory mess. You moan that they are not communicating more with strong forward predictions, but at the same time you condemn Tokman because he's been over optimistic. Which do you want? So you want forward looking statements but they can only be 100% accurate or pessimistic?
As for everything AT has said being over optimistic, yeah, he told us he'd get the Sony agreement done by end of 2014 and it took till Feb. BFD, that agreement and the 8 figure PO are all that matter now and he got them as promised. He's talked over and over about the F500 having plans to ship in 2015. Did you want him to blab about how much the deal is worth before it's signed? Or did you want him not to say 2015 just in case it takes a few months longer than he expects? You are incoherently peeing your pants because it's not happening fast enough and they aren't making clearer promises about the big customer orders they expect to book and ship. Meanwhile you also accuse them of being over optimistic. You're not making any sense.
They probably know when Sony wants delivery but you're a fool if you think they're gonna tell us. Presumably they have a very good idea of what the F500 wants and when but they can't discuss that. So we have to sit tight to see the size of the F500 license deal and PO, and then we have to wait and see how quickly shipments increase. There is every reason to expect this to be a $10+ stock if you have the stones to hold on until if and when they start running on 4 cylinders and we see strong earnings growth. Once the F500 deal is signed and they get firm shipping schedules from the customers maybe they'll even start giving guidance, but until shipments become predictable we'll have to rely on the earnings reports. That how investing works and you should wise up and grow up. OTOH if you're just a short who is concern trolling, good luck, you will need it!

And many more id's that post the same single sentence every day and have user names that an emotionally challenged 13 year old would think up..
If this BS is moving anybody, that person must be the same type who responds to the Nigerian emails wanting to share $12M with you.
The volume on this stock is low (and tiny-tiny compared to mid-caps on a $ basis) and even on most above average days it's very bursty, so there can be very little size on either side of the bid/ask for most of the day and it's super easy to move around a lot on almost no volume. As for more serious manipulation in size, the shorts added 4M shares into the last rally and the sudden dropping of 100-150k shares all at once yesterday was either a sudden big panic after watching the market deteriorate all day, or the short position selling another 100k shares on top of their 7M share interest just to make sure to push as hard as they could on a very weak day, in hopes that the market selloff would continue.
Sentiment: Strong Buy
You guys are such clowns. Are you making minimum wage to post the same old nonsense here every day?
Good luck to the retail shorts when the F500 contract is announced. I bet the bucket shop will cover before you can and $1-2 lower. Or maybe the big guy will foolishly try to brazen it out but retail shorts had better be quick or they will be toast unless they have enough margin credit to ride to $5-$6+ and then hope the big guys are willing to short another 3-4M shares to try to get it back down to $4.
You are the one who hasn't learned how to live with the info constraints this stock is under. Even if there were in theory a different PR strategy, you must be thick as a brick if you're still expecting AT to do anything different. Why do you constantly waste so much emotional wear and tear on yourself plus time and effort writing the same whine here over and over? What is wrong with you?
Sentiment: Strong Buy
Just FYI, kabunushi doesn't mean 'private_parts' or 'sex_acts'. I guess it's true what you see in movies about bucket shops being a very young, frat boy culture. More like frat boy wanna be I guess. You guys probably don't have any college. It shows, in spades.
Very smart of you short(s) to use such a sophisticated set of aliases to get people to take you seriously.
RS, sorry your initial investment is far from paying off yet, but your whining and $3 will get you a cup of coffee. You've had plenty of time to put together a new stake and even here you still have a chance to make a whole lot of money on this company. Moaning about the past won't help you make money in the present, but any shares you buy here will. Now is the time to buy, not to cry.
I'm impatient too, and will get more impatient as the days go by waiting for the F500 to finalize their license and give us their first PO. But I have no sympathy for tantrum throwing because they don't preannounce the terms of a contract, and especially not the stupid blaming AT a la "somebody has to pay for my pain". I agree that the RS was a disaster but even in the best case a lot more time and $ were needed to get us where we are now. Investors in startups getting 'crammed down', i.e. losing large amounts of equity as later financing rounds get a lot more equity for less $ is a fact of life in venture investing and is now ancient history here, except that if you keeep holding you will probably eventually get all your money back and if you doubled down below $2 you will get a great return even including any pre-RS investment in the calculation. Anyway, try thinking with your head and if you are not a mature investor then stick with mutual funds. The 'Mommy, that AT is a bad man' whine just shows the poster is a baby.
This BOD has not been very generous with options, certainly not by Silicon Valley standards. Everybody hates how C-suite guys at every company in the US are overcompensated, but the fact is the last stock grants were huge for this company. They tell me that the BOD have rewarded the management team including for the next game changing contract which is a done deal waiting for the OEM to sign.
A lot of people have no idea what large co legal departments are like. A delay of weeks until a 'drop dead' date needed by the product team should never surprise anybody with any knowledge about product development in an F500 sized company. Anyway, if you think AT has blown it and the BoD is anxious to get rid of him you are an idiot. A big benefit to shareholders is that AT now has golden handcuffs on and for sure isn't going anywhere in the next 4 years as his options vest.
Hang in to get your share or sell your choice but stop whining like a baby.

@geo_rule You hit the nail on the head re historic MVIS price comparisons! Looking at simple share price comparisons doesn't make show the true picture, not just due to RS but also because of constant changes in the number of shares. We can't see the real historical comparisons without tracking changes in market cap. This is really important to understand and review changes in the total market value of the company over time when the share count has changed so much over time (i.e. we got highly diluted repeatedly over time and there are many million more shares now).
Do you know some chart we can use to see this? Or have you developed your own historical data on number of shares outstanding every year going way back? If so would you mind sharing your data? I for one would find it very useful.
this is very interesting but what is the context? I mean is the package labeling for optimum placement on the truck something new? Is that a part of the new system which uses pico projection? Even if so, it's not clear whether they'd need a projector on every truck, which of course i'd like to hear because the number starts to add up, esp since these projectors are sold at very high margins as part of the industrial solution. It really matters how low into the distribution system the scanning system including picop is pushed, of course. If not so many picop's get sold, we might get a PR but not too much on the bottom line. At this point Lenovo is 100 times more interesting! Just need to find someone with loose lips at the ASM who is willing to whisper 'yes, this is us'. The shorts might still be able to sit on the price for a little while, but there should also be a steady flow of $ into the stock even before it's more widely known. Analysts probably will not be willing to jump all over this until they have some actual numbers to consider.
You seem to have no idea how incredibly stupid you have been with this theme of yours forever. "let's not authorize the sale of any more shares; let them sink or swim". You think management is trying to 'steal shares from you' but you still own the stock. Unfortunately you are the kind of person who can have 23 people (and counting) tell you your idea is really dumb but this does not cause you to reflect.
Also note that AT talked a lot about working with retailers. I'm pretty sure that he invested a lot of his own time getting the retailers on board, this is something he worked on probably most of 2014 or even starting in @h 2013. He described it as a key approach - get the retailers convinced they can sell the product and that will drive the oem's to make it. It seemed to be a very important lesson he had learned. Considering how he talked about it it's almost surprising that we don't see the results yet, though this could well be the biggest fruit of that effort that I for one have been watching and waiting for.
No, they haven't preannounced any of their customers' products, and no that does not count as a PR fail. Mirro, you write like you think you are an expert investor, but you know nothing about the type of company MVIS is, apparently. Component makers don't do PR for their customers products, certainly not before the customer even announces them!!! Remarks like this show that you don't know the first thing about how companies like MVIS do business.You're as bad as the shorts, writing whatever stupid stuff they think will influence ignorant retail investors.
nobody willing to sell except for brain dead shorts, lol. longs are tapped out, but we just need next PO news to wake the sleeping dragon again. keep selling my little dull brained friends. doubt even you all are stupid enough to short yourselves here but you want others to risk getting singed to death. no brains and equally no morals, you're saying sell here like you said at 2.00 and you'll be saying again at 5.00. you already know what the results will be.
Logic lesson: "only a few private investors can ask questions on a call", is never equivalent to "retail investors are never allowed to ask questions on a Conference Call". Though probably true to the extent that the private investors who are allowed into the queue are not your typical 'retail' individuals, your basic train of thought is off the tracks of elementary logic.
Well said! It's one thing to #$%$ and moan a little because they sometimes do stuff where you wonder what they are thinking, but accusing management of criminal activity is never an acceptable way to complain and even on a free for all MB this is total slander. If you really think this is possible no way should you be holding the stock. It's that simple. This is not big banking, so criminal activity is not considered BAU in this kind of company.
Oh did he say that? I completely take back what I just said. He was right to point out that shorts are active and trying to push. There isn't much capitulation because the stock has not been marginable, so the shorts cannot trigger margin calls, and only the really weak kneed longs are foolish enough to panic and jump out at the bottom. There will always be some freakers out and some incorrectly thinking they can sell low and buy back lower and end up selling at the bottom. But i don't think this ends with any dramatic capitulation, more that the shorts have to stop selling somewhere and the push down just runs out of energy as there are no weak longs left to get suckered into selling. jmho/
First paragraph very dumb, mirro. After that, well said. Good to see you are finding your backbone again as the action smells like maybe we bottomed out. The shorts face diminished returns on the shares they sell to foment panic sales. They can't keep selling forever because they need to try to cover the extra short shares before buyers flood back in and they face possible news every day.They are playing this game because they have to, to try to rescue (cover) the 3M shares short at $2 and still short now. Their second 3M+ might not be underwater here but then they've shorted another 1-2M to push down, Can they even cover all those news short shares before news comes along and hits them with a 2x4? That is the interesting question we will get to see answered.
