my prediction was 100%. flat revenue (because they can't sell their product and dont seem to care about much more than tee times) and like machine still in testing because social media stuff takes a really long time to develop.
and with all the buying of shares, they have not been able to do anything but prevent the stock price from going under cash value. that this company would buy back their own shares is comical. really? your stock is the best of use of the shareholders' money. how about spending it on headhunters?
OMG!!! they were on a list?????? a list you say???? this is a real list? not a single name, but several names on the same sheet of PAPER???? SHORT SQUEEZE!!!!!!!!!!!!!
make about 1.7 million according to yahoo? and they generate less than 1/4 of that in profit? hmmm. hard to figure out what is going on here. when does this change and people are put in charge that will make a difference?
yeah, no. the greater odds are the solution does not use ucaps. doesnt need ucaps. and mxwl is hurt by the announcement as the price is indicating, as sales are indicating. does maxwell have a home energy storage solution or expertise in the market? nope. they dont. could maxwell trade to $2s again? its just a number. and since they cannot seem to make a profit, they certainly could drop another $3 dollars. they already dropped $13. fink has failed, thus far, to light any fuse for the company that is generating excitement or meaningful sales. at some point though, there is a bottom. sad.
really? he is? he is not sleeping? oh my. that could be bad. i heard he is engaged 30/8. setting a new record for engagement. does the stock need fictional pumping? are you that concerned or eager to sell?
well, no mention of ucaps by musk. and the architecture of the battery is already in place. maybe they go into some detail and it does use caps. but if uses someone else's caps, you can take maxwell out back and shoot it. you could be looking at $2 - $3 stock shortly as the excitement completely dies. then it will rally to $5 again. even a limited car announcement will mean little after those earnings.
the ceo has not gotten a thing right yet. dont be so sure when one insider buys a small amount of stock.
dont you love the system in place? work for a failing business, suck it dry of cash, move on to new business. i am glad i have not touched this stock. i do not believe they have a chance to establish themselves in the market. maybe a cree buys them for the software, but that could be a takeunder.
150,000 in stock from a guy making $650,000 a year? is a small amount of stock. especially when that guy is president of the company and should have some actual faith in the company. so when a multi-millionaire buys $150k in stock, no, i am not impressed.
but please, feel free to expound on how marvelous maxwell has performed for the last 20 years. is the stock trading at multi-year lows as a bluff? they are feigning weakness? this is one of the worst performing tech stocks in the world over the last year short of bankruptcy!! buy low is great advice. there is nothing to say that mxwl isnt going to have to re-org. and in a down market, this stock is at $2 now. fortunately, the market is at all-time highs. otherwise, maxwell probably would have gone a123.
and i should have bought a year ago. but what keeps me away is the valuation. mxwl is worth 160mm with 140mm in sales. i think itkg at 70mm is a lot to pay for prospective sales that might not be profitable for a long time. if itkg were at half the value, i would be ok. but this seems so crazy high. thoughts?
sune was a good call. i am not a player with super high pe stocks, as they are the first to get crushed when reality hits the markets. i would not have ever bought amzn or sune. but both have done well. i do not see mxwl in that camp now. two reasons. one, the adoption of UCs has been really really slow. they are not NEEDED for anything out there of financial impact. they just are not a key technology for anyone. as a result, plenty of other companies have had the chance to come up with their own UCs or battery improvements that make UCs not needed. tesla has the leading e car, but not a customer. if the market does take off, there are now a dozen other companies to absorb sales. UCs seem to be becoming less and less interesting and certainly not disruptive. LED lights are disruptive. Cree seems like a wow company. nope. too many competitors which cheaper solutions. margin compression will keep cree cheap. probably heading to $15 a share as a commodity producer with flat growth. and cree is vastly more innovative than maxwell who forgot to sell and forgot to disrupt and forgot to innovate enough. UCs are just not that hard to make and chinese companies are right there. the IP is slight. the manufacturing processes are not complex. mxwl has no moat left. can it get to $18 again? sure, with a big win. but there are no big wins for mxwl going to happen. they have not happened in the past. not upcoming either. car wins will be incremental and take years to build. but if you think mxwl can rebound to $7 on a trade, i agree. it will not go down in a straight line.
um, i think if you see 4.8, that would be disturbingly bad. really bad. you better see some wicked growth or there will be issues. you also need some good guidance. 30% growth will not cut it here. not off such a low base.
step 14. www.specialtyfood.com/news/article/bruce-cost-ginger-ale-pump-production-new-hq/ allow competitors with better or equal product to take market share you didnt bother to work hard enough to take.
and down goes frazier....
what is remarkable to me is the continued head in the sand on marketing and branding. as if they are above the fray. fire the PR agency. fire the marketing director. get myrisk and myriad branded as the gold standard for testing. or are they going to wait until they are under assault there too? prolaris? is prolaris not available for sale? where exactly on the scale of stupid is not letting men know about the possibility of not dying and not having their sex live ruined? reimbursement means little here. but, myriad marketing could not be less capable if a gerbil were in charge.
bob, what do you have for us?
we have sex and avoiding death as selling points.
hmmm. so nothing to go on yet. damn.
sorry, sir, we are trying to find a leverage point.
hmmm. who is our target?
men in their prime earning years.
#$%$. we cant catch a break.
none of their relationships are strong. car companies will flock to a better or cheaper product once the UCs are incorporated in system architecture. the work with corning is comical to even mention. lovely. you are doing research. amazing. why wasnt the company doing it 10 years ago? 15 years ago? 5 years ago? so who cares about the research? no one. annoying.
