o Superconductor Technologies owns 11.6% of Resonant post-IPO.
o Resonant has a partnership with RF component giant Skyworks to develop an RF duplexer it thinks can cost less than half as much as rival solutions. It also plans to develop tunable filter designs on its own.
Throughout 2013 demand for Conductus wire grew every quarter and I’m happy to report this positive momentum continued in the first quarter of 2014. During the first quarter of 2014, we shipped nine orders: six for Stage 1 customers conducting performance evaluation and three for Stage 2 customers testing simulated devices for commercial deployment. We continue to prioritize our shipments based on the near-term size of the opportunity. This quarter we shipped to five new customers and our purchase order commitments continued to grow. Our current commitments and in-house orders are expected to consume all of the wire produced for the next quarter. We expect our new 1km Reactive Co-Evaporation Cyclic Deposition and Reaction (RCE-CDR) machine to be operational shortly and we plan to have commercial quantities of Conductus wire available in the third quarter. We plan to ramp this machine to its full annual capacity of 750km by the end of 2014. Superconducting materials clearly offer solutions to problems that conventional products cannot address, thus creating a large market opportunity. We believe that the demonstrated critical current performance and scalable output of STI's superconducting wire positions us well, and we are excited about our future as a supplier to the electrical device industry," concluded Quiram.
On May 6, 2014 STI was issued US Patent No. 8,716,187 pertaining to optimized compositions of Rare Earth barium copper oxide (ReBCO) thin film superconductors using the RCE-CDR process. This patent further strengthen STI's IP portfolio on the RCE-CDR process for manufacturing of high performing, economical and commercially scalable ReBCO thin films. We , developied more than 100 patents as well as proprietary trade secrets and manufacturing expertise.
** Our development efforts over the last 27 years have yielded an extensive patent portfolio *** Our current commercial products help maximize the performance of wireless telecommunications networks by improving the quality of uplink signals from mobile wireless devices. � Cryocoolers. We developed a unique cryocooler that can efficiently and reliably cool HTS circuits to the critical temperature (77 degrees Kelvin), and as a result, our wireless products are maintenance free and reliable enough to be deployed for many years.
� Electric Power Utilities. As discussed above, we are adapting our unique HTS materials deposition techniques to deliver energy efficient, cost-effective and high performance Conductus wire technology for next generation power applications. We have identified several large initial target markets for our Conductus wire including energy (wind turbines, cables, fault current limiters) and industrial (motors, generators) applications. We are partnering with HTS industry leaders to accelerate our development and manufacturing processes for our Conductus wire, which we expect to begin commercial production later this year.
Our development efforts (including those described under "Our Strategic Initiatives" below) can take a significant number of years to commercialize, and we must overcome significant technical barriers and deal with other significant risks, some of which are set out in our public filings, including in particular the "Risk Factors" included in Item 1A of this Report.
Our Wireless Business
Although our current efforts are focused on our strategic initiatives described below, substantially all our current revenue comes from the design, manufacture, and sale of high performance infrastructure products for wireless communication applications. We have three current product lines all of which relate to wireless base stations:
SuperLink , a highly compact and reliable receiver front-end HTS wireless filter system to eliminate out-of-band interference for wireless base stations, combining filters with a proprietary cryogenic cooler and a cooled low-noise amplifier;
AmpLink , a ground-mounted unit for wireless base stations that includes a high-performance amplifier and up to six dual duplexers; and sst.
SuperPlex, a high-performance multiplexer that provides extremely low insertion loss and excellent cross-band isolation designed to eliminate the need for additional base station antennas and reduce infrastructure co Our Strategic Initiatives
We have created several unique capabilities and a HTS manufacturing system related to our new Conductus wire platform, and cryocoolers that we are seeking to commercially deploy by leveraging our leadership in superconducting technologies, extensive intellectual property, and HTS manufacturing expertise.
HTS Wire Platform
Our Conductus wire product development is focused on large markets where the advantages of HTS wire are recognized by the industry. Our initial product roadmap targets three important applications: superconducting high power transmission cable, superconducting fault current limiters (SFCL) and superconducting rotating machines such as motors and generators.
Superconducting High Power Transmission Cable:
Superconducting high power transmission and distribution cable transmit 5 to 10 times the electrical current of traditional copper or aluminum cables with significantly improved efficiency.
We sell most of our current commercial products to a small number of wireless carriers in the United States, including AT&T and Verizon Wireless. Verizon Wireless and AT&T each accounted for more than 10% of our commercial revenues in each of the last three years
We have demonstrated the capability to meet the demand and need of a diverse set of applications included superconducting fault current limiter, superconducting power cables and high filed magnets. Recently, we’ve successfully completed a run that fully illustrated the effectiveness of our proprietary RCE-CDR process. By producing Conductus wire, we supposed the performance is utilizing our pilot production equipment. The particular production round of Conductus wire little bit of minimum current across the entire depositions on it but at least 500 amps per centimeter width at 77 degrees Kelvin. HTS Wire Platform

Superconducting motors, generators, turbines and other rotating machines are expected to generate large future demand for our Conductus wire.
Superconducting Fault Current Limiter (SFCL): SFCLs act like powerful surge protectors, preventing harmful faults from taking down substation equipment … Smart Grid and embedded alternative energy generation enhancements will increase the need for SCFLs. Grid operators face a major challenge in moving power safely and efficiently, from generators to consumers. we formed a joint venture with Hunchun BaoLi Communication Co. Ltd. ("BAOLI") to manufacture and sell our SuperLink interference elimination solution in China. We use the equity method of accounting for our 45 percent joint venture interest.

#1 The disconnect between PPS and turn around in the industry 2) Shorts have no way to cover without driving the PPS higher 3) Chance the stock manipulation is cleared up with ironridge 4) New ships bring new fundamentals not priced in 5)The more shorts that stay here is the greater chance for them not covering and driving this to the squeezemoon. The squeeze moon is a distant planet full of morons that mis the obvious. 6) the un natural state direction , treatment, and trading pattern with this is stock all screwed up and we all see the possibility of a ten banger here (((eventually) 6.... I lost faith and sold 1/2 of my holding so it will fly today. 7) Just the thought of making these shorts suffer and give back their ill-gotten gains was enough motive to take on the loss and still feel good about my mistake. 8) if this goes much lower I will double the holding I had before. 9) something very wrong is happening here. 10) I would take twice the losses to correct what just happened
I averaged down to under a buck. I should be in the money tomorrow. I bought 4 times.
Sentiment: Strong Buy
That's what I am taking from it. I agree they tried to walk it down and the records may prove it. I think it was manipulated and it is was highly shorted and sold for a reason. BOOYA to the company.

NewLead announced that on June 3, 2014, the Company was granted a Temporary Restraining Order, against Ironridge Global IV, Ltd. prohibiting the further issuance of common shares in payment of dividends on Series A Preference Shares of NewLead. - The Company intends to use this $25.0 million to grow its fleet.
That's very good as they split the earnings of the mine and 3 new ships. TANKER could do better with higher petrol/gas. You guys aren't new to investing are you?
you are miss using the head and shoulder pattern. Its not used on a daily chart. I got to laugh at a fool who thinks it is 99% accurate. I see charts like this all the time and they usually bounce with a catalyst like being over sold and new boats delivered. ONLY a BSer would use it in a day chart.
