$12 price target, based on what? What are his revenue and EPS estimates? I think Vista is just like that RedChip outfit. A pump & dump boiler room for micro caps. There's a reason Mr. Ross Silver works for Vista and not Goldman Sachs. This could mark the relative top. Let's hope not.
Cane, I see today as a dead cat bounce off a fluf PR from a vested 2-bit analyst. I don't know what you guys are celebrating. The 50-dma is $6.34 and rising! This downtrend is still intact.
Wow. That's a big price tag. Is there any literature or PR that confirms this? I will check it out. Thanks.

EW replacement valve is $50K? Or is that the cost of the entire operation?
Ease off a while to give them hope and then we'll rip the scab off again. I'll meet you back at the boiler room for drinks. Nice work today.
Holy cow, today's' candle was a 5-day bearish engulfing stick!! Fully engulfed last five days entire trading range. That's about as bearish as it gets.
I'll see you in my dreams.
The close will be epic. Working on a multi-day bearish engulfing candle. $6 is breached already. Goodness gracious, It's teetering on the edge of an open elevator shaft.
Today was a key day, because Chartists were waiting to see follow through of the 20-dma breakout from yesterday. Instead, we got the reversal. Failed breakouts usually cause a firestorm. We'll see. Watch the $6 support.
Chart looks ominous though. Yesterday's fake breakout above the 20-dma. Beaten back today, working on bearish engulfing candle. 20-dma crossed below the 50-dma for first the since last November. pps can't hold the 50. Chart says party's over.
But take heart, we still got the Vegas party booked! Yee Haa!!!
CEO Lonnie Schnell used to have some credibility. That was shortly after he took over from Steve Forte and lowered expectations. Now it just seems like he keeps kicking the can down the road. It's always "wait until next year". The final straw was when he issued that press release over a year ago, in which he guided for 10-12% compound annual revenue growth for the next three years. And here it is, just one year out, and revenue growth is negative 6% right out of the gate. And then he blames it on the cold weather and weak retail environment. Always an excuse. Always.
That's nice. Where is the prototype? Where are the OEM partnerships? Are they going to sell windshields on Amazon too? Is Paul Travers "The Wizard of Wearables" or "The Wizard of Windshields"? Better make up your mind before you book him on all the late night TV shows.
If they aren't working on it by now, you can forget about it.
"...WOW!!! How many Cars are on the road? There appears to be no end to Vuzix potential uses."
I hate to burst your bubble, but Vuzix makes smart glasses, not windshields. And yes, A/R windshields are the future for cars. But sorry, smart glass becomes obsolete by the A/R windshield in cars. No need for two A/R displays in front of your eyes.
You're speculating as to how long the celebrity game fad will last. You think it will last decades. I can't say with certainty how long it will last, and neither can you. Just because a celebrity mIght remain popular doesn't mean that the public will retain its enthusiasm for celebrity games. There could be a divergence between celebrity popularity and their respective game popularity. KKH is already slowly losing popularity. It peaked in the top 3 earnings rank for IOS, but it could not hold that level like the other game genres (candy crush, clash of clans, etc...).
You missed one other possibility -- That I own shares in VUZI and I see things for how they really are, not how I wish them to be. If we get a purchase order from DHL, I will adjust my tune fast. But as of now, too much euphoria stemming from pilot programs that result in no hard sales. That's what I see.
All the people in that video are employed by the A/R industry. What do you expect them to say? I'd prefer to hear from objective sources.
Hey Frank, better call DHL and tell them they are at a disadvantage for blowing us off. While you're at it, call Amazon and tell them that their $750 million fully automated warehouse system is not as good as having a team of hundreds of manual laborers wearing $500 smart glasses. How can they be so stupid to think that a fully automated warehouse can get the job done most efficiently. I think you should call them and tell them how stupid they are.
Non-GAAP earnings of combined entity is powerful. As a result of the merger, the combined company will be the fourth-largest semiconductor company excluding memory players. We conducted a detailed, pro-forma analysis (CY16-CY17) of the earnings power for the combined company. For CY16, which should represent the beginning of the benefits of the integration, we forecast Non-GAAP EPS of $7.44, followed by $9.00 in CY17.
Deleveraging magnifies synergies. Based on our pro-forma cash flow model, we believe the combined entity could generate $2.3B of FCF. This would enable it to pay down ~$400MM per quarter of debt, allowing for significant deleveraging. We estimate the total debt for the combined company will be ~$10B at the time the deal closes, but can be quickly reduced to $6.3B by the end of 2017, significantly reducing interest expense and increasing the earnings power of the combined entity.
A powerhouse in Autos, MCUs, & IoT. We estimate the combined entity will hold the #1 position with ~13% market share in the global auto semiconductor market, and the #1 position in the MCU market with 15% share. Furthermore, NXPI/FSL will have the broadest portfolio of solutions addressing the burgeoning IoT market: Processing, Sensors, Connectivity, & Security.
We expect valuation multiple expansion. NXP currently trades at 16.8x P/E on 2015 EPS estimates vs our compiled peer group’s 18.9x multiple despite what we view as superior growth prospects and the earnings leverage we see in its model. We believe there is room for the multiple to expand as investors realize the value of the combined entity and its attractive end market exposure.
