    So what happened to the idiot pumpers who said the reverse split was a great idea and bring in institutional investors and the big money? I guess they erased their posts.

    I looked at the CC transcript, including the Q&A, and was impressed. I get that this company has been around a while, and the 3d industry has tanked, but want to be in this zone because it is technology with disruptive potential as it unfolds (not just disruptive technology that maybe will some day unfold). It is hard to pick the winners and losers on the manufacturing and sales end, but MTLS can benefit from a lot of software customers and is focusing (and investing in) new production material like metal. So I am putting money into it,
    the R&D causing a loss is in my view okay at this stage, 2-4 years we shall see. I hope $7-8 is a good range and we do not fall into the dilution/rs trap, but I like their position in the developing field.

    $900 million write off, which is not even the final number. Premarket already down 6%. Nice call, robo.

    You must be joking. Citi had fundamentals, underlying value, a massive global presence, a legendary history, a government subsidy, and still does. BCLI had no underlying value, no evidence or record of sustainable business, zilch, so they declared an r/s and the shareprice I predicted. Citi has done just fine and remains a leading bank. AIG did the same thing. They always had an ongoing global and very successful underwriting business, so when the credit swap default business in the UK blew up, they eliminated the bad business and declared a large r/s based on the underlying business, and are doing just fine. This company has no underlying business, lousy fundamentals, and is a one trick pony so they prematurely declared an r/s to attract deep pockets and institutional investors. WHERE ARE THEY. The shareprice is still miles below the r/s price. It was a stupid move (for outside shareholders, are you one?) and has nothing to do with Citi.
    Really dumb, but of course your name association with Citi I suppose is meant to gild this weed. You have got to get real if you want to have any credibility at all.

    "Citi did it after the crash to raise the pps to make it harder to short"up penny stock" That is one of the dumbest posts I have are comparing and justifying the motive for a reverse split of a start up penny stock to a well established ongoing major global bank? Stupid..

    Was the R/S helpful? Was it premature? Was it necessary? And, what happened to the value of your investment afterwards?

    Everyone that held at the (premature) R/S is still way under water. What happened to all the institutional investors and deep pockets that was supposed to attract?. The price, even before the CEO change, was losing ground, that just made it worse.

    Obviously there is a story behind this that insiders are not talking about, however it is a very material change and shareholders should be given a full explanation accordingly.. Transparency.

    It seems Mr Lebovitz is the largest shareholder, so basically he appointed himself new CEO, but why? T shareprice is crashing and mum is the word.I expected it would go down after the premature reverse split, but this is ridiculous coming out of management.

  • starcutspin by starcutspin Sep 28, 2015 2:56 PM Flag

    Shareprice is about half what it was after the reverse split. What a brilliant move.

    HP may acquire Stratasys

    They acquired COMPAQ,etc because no organic revenue growth now comes the slight of hand. Mergers and acquisitions and spin offs are the survival tools of failed leadership, roil the accounting, 1 + 1 = 3, just wait.
    HP is over, and should be. I would not put any money into the company on the basis that it is the future of
    3D printing for equity investors.

    Darthtrader, there is apparently an underlying (desperate?) effort to keep the price over a dime, which is a trigger to the credit line, do you know the details of how that works? 200 million shares
    left for dilution, plus an inevitable reverse split at some point. What exactly is going to keep us (as opposed to insiders) out of this ever deeper hole? A knife, and a couple of utterly undefined
    contracts? I do not see the path out for longs, other than a buyout at about the current shareprice
    and a little premium but who needs it? Basically, what is the Crucible IP worth bearing in mind Apple already has what it wants. Everyone has been waiting for years for the company to exhibit revenue from a disruptive liquidmetal technology that flows to LQMT shareholders.....never a dime.

    CEO replaced?

    It is very strange, and it always raises concerns when when the top person suddenly leaves (look what just happened at LaQuinta) without clarification. Very amateurish, and it is already costing us. What, one wonders, has gone off the tracks that we do not know about? Quick follow up PR recovery is necessary. and if it does not come, prepare for the worst.

    The REGRF April 30 balance sheet shows accounts receivable of $1,090,000, declared as their asset, but not much cash. Is that the supposed Chinese investment, if so it apparently has not been paid. RGUS shows accounts payable in a similar amount, maybe it is that? If so , it is intercompany fooling around. Where is the $million plus the Chinese investors have put into the company (s)? It does not show up on the balance sheets.

    I thought 2.70 was a good entry point (a WAY lot better than the R/S price) for risk/reward, if the main product
    continues to unfold it could still stumble out at some point but the downside is less. If successful, the big bucks will come from the pipeline.

    Crash-a-tinkle, ham. Sure you have not embarrassed yourself.......down 35% doesn't mean a thing and when you add the %25 upside expected from the r/s, well you are probably good enough at basic math to figure out how far off you have pumped away. Should have listened and learned.
