Took a quick look at ctix and sounds promising, but will watch it for a while. It is very early for a 300M market value. It's still on the pinks it looked like. I took a few swings at bio tech and pharma companies recently and all but ISIS didn't work out. Rode isis from 8 to 60. But others are many times hyped up and then go flat. GL.
gpls, i can't blame you, i lament at other opportunities from the past that i could have participated in, but couldn't due to funds tied up in cvv. I have been invested here for about 7 years, since it was in the 3's. That was my first purchase. Still excited about the future, but mgnt should be buying, not selling. Also, for the future, the key metric, IMO is book to bill ratio. They need to book orders well in excess of the sales to get teh stock price moving. Net income will follow. I have about 10k shrs in several accounts. Was hoping the SP would be close to 20 by now and could sell some. Perhaps all it takes is a big bunch of orders, like a few years ago.
larson, i did the same thing. was a little risky at the time,being that the price was dropping almost daily. but with $1.20 of eps almost a sure thing for 2015. this could easily be $15 with a contract announcement.
glad 2014 is behind them. get rid of the lawsuit, yes it cost them money, unfortunate. Looking towards 2015, based on backlog of 21M, they mention that this should be converted to revenue this year. So they already effectively have 75% of their revenue for 2015, based on their $28M revenue of 2014. They should have an announcement of orders in the next 30 days for Q1. IMO
Saw this on yahoo today:
A light bulb made from graphene - said by its UK developers to be the first commercially viable consumer product using the super-strong carbon - is to go on sale later this year.
The dimmable LED bulb has been created with a graphene-coated filament, at Manchester University, where the material was discovered in 2004.
It is said to cut energy use by 10% and last longer owing to its conductivity.
The National Graphene Institute at the university was opened this month.
Media caption Prof Colin Bailey said the graphene light bulb was just the beginning
The light bulb was developed by a Canadian-financed company called Graphene Lighting - one of whose directors is Prof Colin Bailey, deputy vice chancellor at the University of Manchester.
It is expected to be priced lower than some LED bulbs, which can cost about £15 each.
Based on traditional light bulb design, the use of graphene allows it to conduct electricity and heat more effectively.
Prof Bailey said: "The graphene light bulb will use less energy. We expect it to last longer. The manufacturing costs are lower and it uses more and more sustainable components."
Planes and cars
The discovery of graphene by Andre Geim and Konstantin Novoselov, two Russian-born scientists at the University of Manchester, earned the pair the Nobel Prize for Physics and knighthoods.
A micro-thin layer of graphene is stronger than steel and it has been dubbed a "wonder material" because of its potential uses.
The National Graphene Institute was opened at the university this month
The government has invested £38m in the National Graphene Institute via the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council, with an additional £23m provided by the European Regional Development Fund.
Also, we all have to keep in mind this isn't a multi billion or hundreds of million dollar company. the FMV is only about 120M. So, to me, it is acting like a small , low float, growing company.
When i bgt this stock about 5 years ago, i thought it as a long term investment, but probably 2-3 years. Well....here we are and they had some big issues and moves along the way, i would have expected more. I have done well, but i was hoping to pay for kids college with this. LOL. Not quite there. CVV still needs more orders and bigger adoption of graphene and the cVD process. More orders lead to higher stock price leads to 3:2 or 2:1 splits, more liquidity in the stock, new instiutional buyers, even higher prices. Only in my dreams right now. GL.
