Just to be clear, I'm an engineer. I never accused you of making anything up. I never argued with you that I can recall except for the one time after I got really tired of noticing you popping up endlessly throwing unprovoked #$%$ long after you had "raised your warning" many times and argued with the idiots to your hearts content. That's my beef with you, so don't drag everything else in as though it's relevant, it's not.
You have a revisionist sense of what you said and who you were then. You don't remember/admit what a nasty troll you became. I'm not talking about legit arguments, I'm talking about when you kept posting very nasty comments long after there was anything close to a point to be made, except that we were all stupid. Yes, at first you had a legit argument with some very stupid people. But you relished the stimulation so you kept coming back for more to the extent of becoming a total troll. I called you out at the time for who you had become and you replied like the total #$%$ you were.
Of course you want to think otherwise, but be intellectually honest: you made your case, obviously people did not agree with your or they would have sold their stock and left the MB. After making your case you were involved in endless arguments with fools - which to a certain extent was quite justified. But long after there was any reason at all for that you were trolling us on an almost daily basis. I never argued with you. I respected your research and your opinion but I wasn't going to sell my stock because you said so. What I object to, and tried to engage with you at the time was the fact that you came back again and again for a long time, just to stir up #$%$ here because it amused you for one reason or another - basically out of boredom and being a lousy person. You admitted it then but said 'this is all internet lulz so **** you', but now you claim you never meant that, after pretending to not know what I was talking about. I guess you did sort of apologize to the extent that you are not afraid to admit to yourself you ended up being a total jerk, which is to say not much. You're still blaming all your boorish behavior on everybody else, just like you're another form of Hillerbyism. Not that you're that bad, just making really dumb excuses. My only point is, don't come back here thinking you have no history of trolling to answer to.
I guess you are one of my many fellow IT'ers who are very intelligent about things but not terribly emotionally intelligent. I say that because I can't imagine how much more clear I could be: you became an unbelievable jerk. You chose to keep arguing with many people on this MB telling everyone here that they were morons for owning this pos stock. Now you don't remember it that way, and on top of that, you can't even get what I've been incredibly clear about now? OK, you don't understand because you didn't think then and you don't think now about what an #$%$ you were. I get that. But if you really don't understand what I'm on about and are not just baiting me now, I can't believe how socially unaware you are! I'm not saying that to put you down, I'm just honestly amazed.
For what it's worth, that's all I'm ever going to say to you about this. You can learn from your mistakes or not, no concern of mine and I've called you on it and don't care any more.
The only people who wish you ill here are those who dislike enormous aholes and were foolish enough to ever pay any attention to you.
When you were hanging out here every day mocking those who did not accept your analysis that showx was #$%$, I asked you why and you said 'for the lulz'. There are lots of aholes out here on the internet, some just because they young and stupid, some because they simply have zero character. Those without character are already being punished by having to be who they are, no need to pay them any heed.
If it were up to me and I had the flexibility to do whatever I wanted, all things being equal in this situation (e.g. if there is not additional deal for more revs waiting in the wings already, etc), I think I'd want to stretch out the realization over the next 3 quarters and breaking or make a tiny profit. Some folks (fools, probably) will focus on that number pay less attention to how fast the cash is being burned and how many quarters of runway I have left. They could have enough additional upfront payments come in to stay profitable on a non-recurring basis still longer, maybe even until sales ramp up enough to keep it going on a recurring basis. 2 or 3 or 4 "quarters of [tiny] profitability" might be a good tricky selling point for the stock.
Unfortunately I don't think those who don't know much about MVIS are going to take that much out of it. Until the products are visible this is going remain our secret, imo. More time to get some more shares at far less than they are worth if you are wise to what is going on here.
he said the magic words! Miniaturization and low power. To me he confirmed what the Sony development team is working on as we speak. Well, not as we speak since it's 10:19 pm here in Tokyo, and they have to let them go home for a few hours every day. The uninitiated will not get it, but those 2 words were the dynamite in the call to my ears.
By the way, no long who's been waiting is going to sell here if they don't need the cash to pay bills. They know where this is headed and are finally getting really solid confirmation that Sony is really into us. There may be enough news flow to keep some more money coming into the stock. The shorts who are not thick as a brick know they need to cover but they will do it quietly and hold their calm and conviction even if squeezed a bit. Even holding the gains and going up slowly should be comfortable and bring in some more buyers and with every piece of news going forward the critical mass of positive outlook will grow. So I'm not saying the stock will not go up, just that if and when there is enough known that analysts will model earnings growth is when the stock will really go boom and it make take a little while to see the gains that longs are now quite confident are coming sooner or later.
Impossible for analysts to model revenue streams for devices nobody has seen yet. Nobody outside SA is going to write enthusiastically about the HUD that's as yet unannounced, the UPS business that will probably come, the F500 and Sony products that are likely to come out. And AT has no way to communicated whatever revenue he might have good reason to expect. He certainly can't talk about his expectations for Sony revenue. He could talk about revenue from not yet revealed sources but it's just not possible for him to talk about revenue projections for such few customers without disclosing too much about the customers business plans (even if it "for products not yet out").
He'd be a fool to stick his neck out and give any estimates not based on actual sales so he would not want to say anything even if he has very high confidence of the business coming this year or next. And the business has to be broad enough that if he says $xM, it's not going to give away any business secrets of his customer(s).
IMO we need to get to the next step in becoming a business that analysts can model even on a guessy basis before the really big buyers will supercharge the stock with large scale accumulation. But they can still do small cap road shows, although there too, their market is not clear so hard to show graphs of how big their target market is, let alone graphs showing how they expect their revenues to grow. We're still a bit out from being able to put together a really persuasive road show, I think. Nothing really interesting to show but the projector itself and then to say 'lots of products using this will come soon'.
Sentiment: Strong Buy
If I recall correctly, JNJ paid MVIS a few million some maybe 8 years or longer back (before the Tokster's time I think) for exclusive marketing rights to this and then proceeded to sit on it ever since. I can't recall the details and it's been so long that maybe the exclusive rights are expired. Search and look up the agreement if you're interested, and pls remind me how long those marketing rights lasted if you find it.
The trading pattern we are seeing which has the price 'pegged' at $2.00 is almost certainly the sign of a very patient limit buyer, not the sign of a limit seller. A seller would never be so patient. If your sentiment is negative you don't want to sit on a potentially very volatile stock being very patient to get the selling price you demand and continue taking risk on a stock you are not bullish on. People generally don't do that.
It was his old man who bought. He passed his first purchase to his Son and repurchased the same amount for himself. Since the son was not even the purchaser, this does not even show any change of mind on Ben Farhi's part. It was his Dad who made the investment, Ben was a passive participant - he was never 'into' the company to start with.
Btw he made 25% in two years so it was indeed a very smart trade. Never let news be reported without jumping in in an ignorant way with negative spin, though.
Nadvy is vaporware. Still has not shipped, projected shipping date still tbd. KG must not have been too much use to them, he's out before they even ship any product. Will they refund the purchasers money?
