Any thoughts why the stock price increase run up and volume spike this week? I am glad for all the stockholders but at a loss to explain why.
Hey Socks, Why do you always defend Aware? Why can't you look at the company objectively as an investment rather than develop an emotional attachment? You think I am FD but we are two different people who live in different states. If you look at the posts Socksdog, Savedoneamen and Helpbash all seem to be the same person-same defense of aware, same style of writing same rip job on anyone who says that Aware is not the greatest thing since sliced bread. Name one good thing that Aware management has done in 2013?
Based on the overall performance of Aware under the Stafford's leadership it is time for them to go. Only reason for the dividends were the asset sales of patents. Other than the two dividends in 2012 (that benefitted the Staffords the most) what have the Staffords done to enhance shareholder value? Can anyone say Dutch Auction?
In the third quarter 2013 AWRE lost $1.2 million or $.05 share. Cost AWRE $2.8 million to shut down the DSL business. Most interesting part of the press release was the statement "Operating income before patent related income in the third quarter of 2013 was a loss of $2.2 million compared to income of $1.4 million in the third quarter of 2012." So the million dollar income question is was the patent income Hybrid Audio, Daphimo or TQ Delta?
If the Aware BOD ever hopes for the stock price to increase there needs to be some news to make people buy the stock. I have an idea how about a nice press release announcing the development and patent of the disposable optical fingerprint scanner used with smartphone and other portable devices. Kai Imgenberg announced this to the world at the World E-ID Congress in France a few weeks ago but since then Aware PR has done their best imitation of Mount Rushmore. In the case of Aware no news is not good news just another reason for the stock to languish.
Seems like an odd coincidence that the Sphinx (Investor Relations) at AWRE announces the DoD contract and then Seeking Alpha publishes three articles in a row. A mere coincidence? We couldn't pay someone to pump the stock and now some PR. Last two days we have traded much stock with no effect on the price. On September 27, 2013 Kai Imgenberg will speak at the World e-ID congress topic MobilePROOF: Introducing “disposable” fingerprint readers for smart phones-Kai Imgenberg, Director International Sales, Aware, USA
– Inexpensive passive optical device enables smart phones to capture high-quality fingerprints
– Software application ensures image quality and performs fingerprint matching
– Smart phone can send fingerprints to central database for 1:many search
– Match to smart card chip, printed QR code, or server
Will be interesting to see if AWRE issues a press release on September 27 or after and if any boost to the stock price.
