Well, in all fairness, Tokman is still the man calling all the shots. That has to play into his opinions. I don't think anyone can deny where this tech is going and the support we have, but time and again Tokman has trumpeted deals and expected success with well known names that never happened. You don't have to tell me about lasers and cash and all the other problems that hampered our forward movement. Tokman brushed them all away and continued to pump this knowing full well we were years away form commercialization...Sony is the key for me, and it wasn't that long ago that i thought the same thing of Pioneer. I'm still here snow, but it is a hungry Sony that is keeping me, not Tokman. I think Andy should give Sony more credence.
I get the feeling that Tokman is the whole company with little to no input from others. Too many things appear to be scatter shot decisions without regard to just how it will appear to shareholders and the investors we are trying to attract. Maybe it's just me, but decisions seem to lack deep thought.
Puff pieces get the word out occasionally and I don't have a problem with companies grabbing a line or two to showcase their products.
You would never know it by the way they run it. Up to now it has been ten years of promises and statements to keep the company afloat that never panned out. That isn't a business as I see it, but it could be soon.
Does it seem as if the whole world is waiting for Tokmans next move? Are investors looking for something positive from them to counter the poorly timed ATM? Pick yourself up and get back in the game Alec.
Communication skills. They don't have any. Even without NDA's it would be a problem for them. I've been saying it for years, hire a good PR firm to dress Tokman up, or hire good PR person who can look at Tokman's statements and then rewrite so it make sense.
Ok, say that. Put it out there so it comes off without setting shareholders off and giving shorts more ammo. The perception investors have of management is poor enough without thinking of the consequences of their actions. The drop in market cap since last Thursday is startling, and it was a good CC for most of us and a good ATM if done right. These could of been positives instead of being viewed as negative events if done with some thought of what investors are going to think. These guys need real help in presenting data to the public.
Yeah, yeah, yeah, I got it. So they are the dealers and they hit 15 with a 6 and pizz off the whole table and they don't care.
Bought some myself. This guy is just plain bad at what he does. The problem he has created is that news will bring immediate selling and shorts will beat this down at every opportunity. If you want to make a buck here you have to trade it. Sad as that seems, it is the only way anyone has made money here in ten years. Tokman created this mess with all the quotes and contracts that never came to pass. I firmly believe that Sony will take him out. He is holding the pps down where it is a steal and Sony is not Tokman Stupid, they will realize what is in front of them and that Tokman is an idiot and seize the opportunity in front of them. I honestly feel that his stupidity is the #$%$ in the armour. One week and we went from all great recent news, the best yearly start ever and he destroyed it in just a couple of days. The timing of this is a disgrace on top of the poorly received CC. The news was there, the energy was there and it was gone in one CC and a ATM in a few days. Not acceptable. He is still learning on our dimes. Nothing wrong with raising money to put us in a better position, but you have to have a decent reason and let investors know. It has to appear as a smart move when the dust settles and this was too close to the CC. Investors hate uncertanity and that is his middle name.
Doesn't make any difference, the timing is the problem. How can you blow that kind of momentum in a week? He just doesn't get it. He has the interest and the orders and doesn't know how to translate that into investor interest. We need a professional PR company to show this nit wit how it works. He is worth at least $2.50 gone.
We're all believers in the tech, it's Tokman that is the wild card. Can't believe he blew the momentum we had, it didn't even take much to push us over $4 and he couldn't do it. His ability to support this company is awful. Sony won't put up with performance like this from him. Too much money on the line to let him continue.
I said $2's a month ago, News or $2's. Tokman provided the news to take us to the $2's. Don't telll them what they can't do, you will regret it.
Nobody here has taken Tokman into consideration in their analysis. The guy is a millstone around the company's neck. You are correct that we should be $5 and everyone knows it. He is as predictable as the sunrise.
