Been here five years and holding for the day the patents maybe worth somethin. Lot of patents being issued to other large companies that mention MVIS tech, otherwise I would be gone. The worst CEO I have ever seen. Doesn't know opportunity when it is looking him right in the face. Astonisihed that the BOD hasn't shown him the door. More dillution comming soon and the financier will undoubtedly short it to .75 and get their money back in a month or two. It is the retail holders that he gets time and time again until it is worth nothing. SEC where are you?
I don't think even another half billion would satisfy this guy.
I have been calling fgor his ouster for over two years now. It became apparent to me with the Pioneer deal and no large follow up. I still think the tech has a great chance in the right hands, not his. Stewie and friends tout his successes and I guess he has earned them, but you are right about GE and all of their support staff. It is hard to make a mistake at GE. It is the BOD's job to see these failures and protect sharholders, I think we may see some action soon.
My point exactly Lantern. I said just about the same yesterday. It only takes and understanding of the mind set of shareholders to make an effort on his part to soften the bad with some informative gesture toward looking forward to next year and the possibilities at hand. I saw no effort on his part yesterday. He appeared to be a beaten man. Sounded terrible to me. He just doesn't know what to do with the opportunities he has. He is unschooled and learning at our expense.
Real pity when you realize what this guy has done and where we are. Good choice my friend. I wish I were smart enough to see this comming 2 years ago. What bothers me is that Karl has a better handle on our tech and on the business than Tokman does and that is disheartening. Nobody should be able to tell us how long it will take to integrate our tech better than Tokman and he does over and over. Enjoyed talking too you every now and then. Take care and good luck. This puppy is going a lot lower.
Gosh, I wish for nothing more. All the Tokman talk this year indicated disign wins and here we are and I feel he left nothing to hang any hope on when he closed the meeting. I too think he caught himself letting his mouth overload his #$%$ again. He seems prone to that. In thanking us longs he could of added something like "looking forward to 2014", it wouldn't of killed him. Just a little something to really talk about without promissing anything. The guy s lousey at this.
Yep, and if you take out his two brothers Senseless1 and Stewie who really just get paid to post here that makes 68 doing some work.
THe Doc needs to sedate Tokman, put him in a straightjacket and keep him isolated. He has become a danger to himself and the investing public.
So, what you're saying Buddy is that we are walking away with more haze and unanswered questions than we had before the CC. We don't know where in the heck we are in this chain, where we are in this whole supply thing, and where we are as far as the customers requirements are. A typical Tokman CC that allows him to pump up the usual gang and continue to dilute the shareholders promissing nothing in return. I'm sure there is a law that protects us.
Story of my life is that this is a spec play that has gone bad. It is a 20% of my portfolio investment. Not going to change me much unless it takes off. Petrohawk and INCY were spec plays for me too. I am more accustomed to those results, so this leaves a bad taste in my mouth. I am almost 72 and I retired at 58 through my iinvestments. I have a nice home on the Chessapeake Bay and owe nothing to anybody. Not a bad story. Wish other investors a story like mine.
Blame others? Yes, I do think that folks like Tokman should be held acacountable for their statements when they are sooo far from fact. Taking this company's credibility to the level it is here is not acceptable to me and it shouldn't be for any investors. I would like to see the company be successful if not dominate the space and I am prepared to wait. I think Tokman should be replaced. A MONKEY would generate more interest here than Tokman has.
And they expect it from Tokman? This guy has been up to bat more times than anybody else in history and he is batting a fat ZERO. All that screams at me is "I didn't think it would take this long", duhh.
