Regardless of how much "Short institutions" short sell this stock the fact of the matter is they wouldn't be able to short the stock if Microvision had real revenues and they had their technology in products that were on the market, selling and that people knew about.
According to the latest financial figures Microvision has none of those things. Revenues are minuscule and fell enormously in the third quarter. We think the technology is in a couple of products but those products are on the market with zero publicity, zero advertising and beyond a few "enthusiasts" no one knows they exist.
So, you have to ask yourself why that is? Why would Sony release a product and say absolutely nothing about it to anyone? Why did Cellulon release two versions of the Pico Projector and not advertise either product and only sell them in very, very limited quantities?
Sharp might release a product sometime next year but short of a Toys-R-Us sticker it's a toy robot that at very best is a clunky novelty that won't sell in America, Europe or Asia anywhere other than Japan. Why won't an OEM make a real product with Microvision's technology and mass market it? That is the question you should ponder and the answer to that question is why there are 8 million shares short out on this stock.
I'd like to be included in this, if you don't mind.
The biggest problem in the world today is Kraft changing the recipe for Cadbury's Chocolate. I truly believe that that single act personifies the arrogance of American Companies to the world's different cultures.
Cadbury's Chocolate has been loved by generations of people all over the world. In comes an American Company and arrogantly tells the rest of the world that they know better.
That is the biggest problem facing the World today.
But there is absolutely nothing going on with Microvision at the moment. I'm sure if they ever get around to announcing any business there will be plenty to talk about but talking endlessly about what might happen at some unknown tome in the future, or about what products might be developed at some unknown time in the future, or about birdies or rocket ships that never go anywhere or short squeezes that never materialize or flags, triangles waves, charts or other voodoo just gets so ridiculous at times. Those things have been talked about for a decade and nothing ever happens.
If or when it does you might have a point.
How many times does someone need to tell you that they think ALL Politicians and political parties are useless liars? The Republicans AND the Democrats don't give a rat's about anything or any one other than their Party.
You seem determined to make this in to a political discussion. IT IS NOT. It is a discussion about the safety of Americans and Europeans. I feel very sorry for innocent people caught up in the atrocities in the Middle East. Atrocities perpetrated by weak minded cowards justifying what they do in the name of religion or some "God" entity. Religion is the excuse they use like politics is the excuse you use.
But I come back to my main point. If there is even the possibility that ONE ISIS member mingles in with the rest of teh refugees it is entirely justified to inconvenience a million refugees until we can be satisfied that everything possible has been done to weed out the terrorists.
Sad as that might be I am not willing to risk the life of a single American or European to make a group politically correct and motivated individuals feel better about themselves. If you are willing to take a chance of even a single American being killed may I suggest that you go and take a random, unchecked person and give them a home in your house.
And you have a serious case of R&D going on. I believe ALL politicians are lying SOB's. I find your analysis of what Republican's did and what Democrats did to be the typical Sheeple reaction and highly hypocritical.
The Obama administration took power on a "We will end the war and bring all our troops home" platform. Obama did not do any such thing. In fact he escalated America's involvement in the middle east to more countries. Obama has presided over A trillion Dollars of Military spending in his 8 years in office. Just as Bush did before him.
They are all useless lying #$%$ But that DOES NOT change the fact that the Paris attacks were perpetrated by people who either used refugees or used the refugee crisis to help carry out the mass murder of innocent, unarmed people. I personally don't care if all the attackers snuck in to Europe with Refugees or if just one of them did. As far as I'm concerned one of them sneaking in would be enough for me to justify stopping ALL refugees from entering Europe or America until every single one of them had been vetted to my satisfaction that they are, indeed, refugees.
If there is a chance that ONE ISIS member sneaks in to America as a refugee and kills ONE American that is justification for inconveniencing 10,000 or 1 million refugees for a few months. There is not a single argument you can make, not a single sudo-fact you can quote and not a single thing you can say or do that would justify risking the life of a single American.
I didn't use information I got from GOP Campaigns or Governors. I quoted information that was put out by French authorities, Belgium authorities and media and the BBC and Sky News in the U.K. What I wrote has nothing at all to do with the Republican party, the Democrat party or the media in the U.S. It has everything to do with the authorities and the Media in Europe, across several different countries.
You make the mistake many people in the U.S. do. You assume that EVERYTHING comes from the U.S. or is done in the name of U.S. political parties. It does not.
And is the "Liberal President" you speak of, who inherited a "Quagmire" the "idiot Bush" got us in to the same liberal president who has escalated every conflict he inherited and who, eight years after taking office on a promise to end the U.S. involvement in Iraq, Afghanistan and elsewhere the same liberal president who is STILL sending troops over to the sand countries and who is still spending hundreds of Billions of Dollars fighting Wars he's been fighting LONGER than the idiot Bush was fighting them?
So, you are choosing to ignore the fact that at least one of the attackers was was a "refugee" and that the passport he had traveled on was the same document that five other refugees have tried to enter Europe on. And you believe that what they are reporting in France and Belgium and the U.K. is just paranoid lies. And as far as ISIS actually telling you that there are "Thousands of Jihadis traveling with the Refugees, well, that's just ISIS telling Fibs. Right? Ok, you can live that little fantasy if you must.
But what you are saying is that it is Muslims in general where the threat lies. If you think that that it's only citizens of France and Belgium then that means that we should be wary of all Muslims living among us because they could be abdul who lives down the street that has been radicalized by the friendly local mosque. Actually, that's a lot scarier than the refugee thing and, I assume, will be your rationale for wanting ALL Muslims, or at least Muslims that look like they are from the middle east, checked out.
But then again, being a good liberal, you can't think like that because as you all know, we all just need to sing Cum-by-yah together and everything will be just Peachy.
Considering that it is an indisputable fact that some, if not all, the Paris attackers were "refugees" and given the fact that ISIS has said that thousands of Murderers have been sent mixed in with the refugees and given the fact that every country in Europe is on heightened alert of terrorism as a direct result of the refugee crisis it would be stupid in the extreme to simply allow these people in to your communities.
The typical liberal way with these kinds of things is to simply allow rampant immigration and then expect everyone to sit around singing Cum-by-yah as they assimilate seamlessly in to our societies. That doesn't happen.
There are thousands of ISIS terrorists among these refugees. If you don't believe that then you are naive in teh extreme. So why would you take the risk? doing anything other than stopping the refugees and vetting each and every one of them five times would be treasonous. What will you say WHEN one of these refugees kills someone you love? Because the only thing that is guaranteed is that someone, at some time, will be killed in an attack by one of these people. Give shelter to genuine refugees by all means. But simply throwing the doors open will let in ISIS terrorists and other radical Muslims. That is just a fact.
All the Robohon is missing is the Toys-R-us sticker. It's a brick. Other than a few Japanese School Girls no one is going to buy one and it sure as snit won't be a mainstream or mass market product. They won't sell 10,000 of them world wide.
Then ignore me, no wait, errrrm, I mean him. Yeah. Ignore him. But posting about it makes it look as though you have a little man-crush going on with him, no wait, me, hang on a minute, him. Wait, who am I posting as? Oh, yeah, him. I mean him. You have a little man crush on him. I think.
It doesn't matter what the strike price of the options is. he doesn't have to pay for them until he sells the shares. There is NO investment by anyone for stock option shares.
This isn't good. EVERY time Tokman has "Bought" on the open market the stock has tanked.
It is also a signal that there is nothing on the immediate horizon. If they announce anything before the end of the year he leaves himself open to an insider trading accusation. Batten down the hatches folks. This could get very ugly!
In the last 8 weeks, and on a weekly basis, Microvision's shares have closed down 7 times. In that time the stock has gone from $3.40 to today's close at $2.32. A loss of $1.08 or 32%
In the week it closed up it went up $0.06 or a little better than 1.5%
Would any of you analysis wallah's care to take a stab at pumping any of those facts?
Now now Injun. Play nice.
And come on. Give it up boys. She could beat you with half her Brian tied behind her back
I guess that the facts that the company has virtually no revenues, offers no guidance, is burning through cash faster than ever, has never met a timeline target, has mentioned, multiple times, that they have sales and even PO's with Pioneer, UPS, Sony, Cellulon, ESPlus, Uniden, and several other and not one has ever resulted in revenues, none of that would play in to the price drop I suppose. Just some "basher" on a yahoo message Board.
Jeeeezus! Please try and keep up.
This was directed at Cletus who is awfully fond of posting how many shares are out short by posting messages with the numbers in Capital Letters.
Of course I understand that no one makes or loses ANYTHING until they either buy or sell. That's why I always talk about "Value".
Perhaps if you slowed down a little and thought about what you were reading (a VERY foreign concept to some on this board, I know) you wouldn't post messages that make you look silly.
But, as you brought it up, All those people who a couple of days ago were crowing about how Shortie was about to get his Plumbs served on a skewer, it might be useful to understand that the all those short shares that were shorted way, way up there in the $3's are now sitting on enormous profits.
And as I said at the time, the only reason for people to try and poke fun at short sellers is because they simply don't understand how to play the game.
