cautious..... all that is needed to take the company private is a buyout offer from someone....... any buyout could be from management or another firm interested in all or part of their businesses. I heartily agree that the company needs to be taken private or merged into another entity relatively soon. GLTA
stock is now at $4.01/share......... and it appears even the company has stopped buying shares....... I know I'd like to hear something from the company as to what they expect and/or hope to achieve......
This is one of those perverse shareholder situations where everyone assumes the company is doing okay and then out of the blue, they file for bankruptcy late some Friday afternoon. GLTA
They're baaaack!....... Yes, another "strong sell" #5 rating from Zacks this a.m........ Buy before one sells at panic prices, one probably should weigh their wisdom against a "Stock is a Buy" upgrade rating from market edge 2nd opinion from yesterday....... It certainly appears there are differing opinions and/or objectives regarding CRUS.
JMO, but I think the best advice remains: "If you can tell the difference between good advice and bad advice you don't need any advice". GLTA
All right new management....... what's going on? Do we have a new business line that is betting on fantasy football with insider info????? .... or is something else underway? Good or bad, it's time to let shareholders know more of what they own,.
Refreshing to see some recognition of the company for a change...... even if it had to be at the expense of the shorts. Pick a bed and sleep in it...... but don't try to roll over. GLTA
by the_14th........ Zack's release and its timing are all well-documented. Someone told be long ago.... "We make our own problems."
norm..... thanks for the consoling words and if today's share price action is any indication, we'll be fine over the duration..... good hear that the product is ready to move as demand materializes. Time is not our friend. GLTA.
Thanks mk..... just a bit of an after-earnings rant..... I'd seen and heard the conf call info...... obviously, shareholders will be the last to know anything but it still generally sounds like a fall product launch to me in conjunction with a specific product.
Although I'm very hopeful for the headsets down the road, I'm getting weary of the wait..... most of us also lived through the 1+ year of LED dimmer switch "hope and change"..... LED was great technology but it was seemingly too costly in comparison when put up against competing (and inferior) products. JMO but this could happen again if Austin doesn't look outside of their confines... presumably, there are other companies working to the same ends as we speak. Now is the time to push the product but ..... again we wait. 'Here we sit broken-hearted.... came to s%$# but only farted'. Ah, the remnants of a classical education. Keeping my fingers crossed and, GLTA.
norm...... you're absolutely correct on what appears to be great potential with the headsets and excellent R&D. Just speaking for myself as a shareholder, I've been waiting on CRUS for a number of years now through many iterations of "potentials", and yes, there have been successes along the way. At the end of the day, the market either doesn't know or care. My point is that the headset product is a CRUS product and it should be released to all manufacturers for production rather than waiting around for someone else's product release date. Let's get this thing going rather than remaining the red-headed stepchild. GLTA
grade...... I just hope that Jason makes the company's growth clear in the quarterly report so that they don't muddle in AAPL's temp muck..... JMO, but I think AAPL will potentially drop the ball if they don't initiate CRUS's earbuds with the 5se release..... IMO a cheaper, smaller phone with great sound would be a major seller overseas. GLTA
kg2931..... of course that is always a possibility that this will be strung out. You had also asked what was still to be settled in the ECD bankruptcy hearing. I'm assuming the following is accurate but I'll leave verification to you..... the paragraph was a comment from S.A. contributor Stephen Breezy.... this and the bankruptcy court's gag order seem to make sense:
"To further reinforce this OQC importance:
When Stan and co discovered Ovonic Quantum Control, they realized that they had obsolesced transistors - but this hinged on being able to mass-produce nanoscale Ovonic devices (which was uncertain at the time). It didn't occur to them that they would ever need a transistor once this was perfected.
When Intel realized this in 2009, they filed this patent which essentially uses a regular buttermilk transistor to latch a two-terminal Ovonic threshold switch (the patents of which are long since expired). They articulate how this radically obsolesces SRAM (which represents the dominant cost of today's CPUs).
If you have OQC devices, then this patent is worthless - unless you don't have the rights to use OQC (again, this is still owned by the ECD bankruptcy).
ECD's OCQ device functions as this Intel patent does - with much less space. Cheaper. And no transistors.

flying...... FYI, in case you didn't check there's a new filing in Detroit Fed Court...... ECD hearing has been postponed until 3/30/16. FWIW, it looks like there's a new attorney involved. GLTA
mk54321..... Thanks for all your continuing efforts to ferret out info on CRUS and its technology. GLTA
