Are there any $$$ changes / events that investors don't already know from last CC? The temptation to sell today's obvious drop seems easy except for a couple things, low volume and the element of surprise. Either news comes prior to Monday or retail won't get a chance to exit/buy before funds hit first. Kind of like the RR% halt in which retail couldn't sell until low $5s. NAIL BITTER!!!!!!!!!!!
The other kind of privateer is the established NPE/PAE which, as part of its offering, buys patents from their owner for a relatively low upfront price, with the promise that future royalty streams deriving from them will be shared. There are any number of examples of this, among them: Bosch/IPCom, Rambus/Acacia, Rockstar/Spherix, Panasonic/Inventergy, Nokia/Vringo, Alcatel/Vringo, Ericsson/Unwired Planet and Microsoft and Nokia/MOSAID (now Conversant). These are but the tip of the iceberg and we are going to see plenty more similar hook-ups in the future. In Germany – and potentially across the EU in the future – the privateer model may be particularly attractive as it is predicated on the sale of good quality patents. That said, the privateering model is coming under much greater scrutiny and could face significant anti-trust/competition issues in the future.
repurchase those shares sold and ride the next leg up! What about guys do you have that kind of faith in the near term out look you spoke of at the CC?

"injunction", "affidavit" are all buzz words but never really apply in cases where powerful defendants are involved. It's been Vringo's nemesis since the trial with critical dates relentlessly being pushed out by legal maneuvering. Odds stacked against Vringo with severe shorting by overseas unknowns continue to cause even great news to be taken negatively. Interestingly however are tuts gathering behind the scenes like this weekend as another 1M shares were accumulated by someone.
Fireworks will get set off just a long fuse but getting exciting.
Paying a billion dollar fine is not their worry. Carrying a title of full blown infringer in our society could taint their reputation a bit and those attached at governmental levels might need to hide. So the events and timelines Perlman laid out yesterday are important. If the 420 patent is finally upheld then the strength of Vringo's case increases. It shows Google's lawyers will eventually need to sit the BODs down and give worse case scenarios. When Google has a hard enough decision to make and they can no longer have hedges shorting with the obvious unveiled then they get serious. Meantime Perlman and company open more cases, apply more pressure on known infringers overseas, and wait. 22 months of cash are sitting comfortable in Vringo's hands and surely one or more of these cases will be determined before that expires. Then shorts run for the hills and Vringo get's that price tag analysts gave of $7. A x multiple will be inevitable if a RR% is awarded and enforced.
ranting about a loss again and figured it would give them relief by the using the "TROLL" comment to inflict hurt. But, Perlman handled it very well as he said we really know why your upset because Ken Lang patented the very technology you stole, and are still stealing so we'll just keep quiet and wait for payment. Oh, and Google we won every stage of the case including the 664 and 420 twice so unless you actually have a real W/A, the payment clock is multiplying. Good day!
greatly to it's real value! In this game of being public, there are no rules against a hedge fund shorting your stock even if it means them going BROKE when the squeeze pops it's head! VRNG has to move north at some time and those shorts are trying their best to guess the exact day that will happen. You'd think with all the positives the BOD laid out and the 664 already locked in as valid people would realize Google's arrogance is likely to backfire and start adding as any day news from several fronts can be final and binding!
the stock plummeted and he was relentless in proving they were finished. Many were wiped out and I personally took a $15k hit. The stock fell to the teens and Einhorn became silent. Well today , less than two years later I'd be + $118,000.00 if I wouldn't have panicked. Vringo only needs the right catalyst from any one of their cases and this will look like GMCR. If the news in tomorrows CC was anything of significance Vringo would not have waited. It's simply an informational piece and possible outcome going forward. HJJ final ruling, USPTO final 420 ruling, ADT #s, MSFT patent declaration/deal, ZTE injunction news, pick one, all could move the price north. We're not going to catch shorts off guard because it's a penny stock so the notion of a GIANT squeeze is out. An orderly CC with details of new patents, contracts, steady income from resolved case will however force shorts to begin to cover. The two actions working together will most likely send VRNG shares up to the $5s where then tuts can begin nibbling if it sustains for at least 3 months.
That's what I expect from tomorrow's CC and future price.
set this off and give onlookers a different perspective of Vringo!
come across times and sales in funny colors it means their getting out w/o anyone suspecting anything! .001 - .0011 below ask cannot be done by anyone trying to buy or sell except a MM. Something's happening.
Your point? this happened three other time only to come back in Vringo's favor. I'll stick my neck out on this one. I dare the USPTO to SUDDELY realize the patent in now INVALID. That examiner and his subordinate had better be prepared to go in front of a grand jury.
You can't be asked to look at a robbers car color by experts in a case and say blue three times and suddenly the fourth time it's now yellow!
Rule 62. Stay of Proceedings to Enforce a Judgment
(a) Automatic Stay; Exceptions for Injunctions, Receiverships, and Patent Accountings. Except as stated in this rule, no execution may issue on a judgment, nor may proceedings be taken to enforce it, until 14 days have passed after its entry. But unless the court orders otherwise, the following are not stayed after being entered, even if an appeal is taken:
(1) an interlocutory or final judgment in an action for an injunction or a receivership; or
(2) a judgment or order that directs an accounting in an action for patent infringement.
(b) Stay Pending the Disposition of a Motion. On appropriate terms for the opposing party's security, the court may stay the execution of a judgment—or any proceedings to enforce it—pending disposition of any of the following motions:
(1) under Rule 50, for judgment as a matter of law;
(2) under Rule 52(b), to amend the findings or for additional findings;
(3) under Rule 59, for a new trial or to alter or amend a judgment; or
(4) under Rule 60, for relief from a judgment or order.
If this rule is indeed applicable would Vringo demand such?
