Come on, he took advantage of a CEO slip up. If you are going to give interviews, you have to consider your answers very carefully, or this is what you get. Dr. Kim is very sincere and wants to keep everything transparent, I understand that, but the buck stops right at his door, and he has to protect the company and the shareholders. If it's not AF, it will be another of Cramers hit men.
Good article and he nailed CEO Scientists. The whole BOD.
Credit from normal sources like banks are debt to be carried forward. Don't laugh, it hurts the stock pps. We have no debt, just dumb long holders. If you just found MVIS this morning it is a great deal. If you have believed Mr. Tokeman for the past 6 years and trusted him you are really hurting badly and can't bend over now. The time is now for reasons I have stated in other posts. I believe the tech is maturing and will now enter the market due to Sony and their cash and brains. Tokeman doesn't matter much at this point, he can't harm the shareholders like he has in the past and the big investors are realizing it now and see the turning point. I really think it is our turn and a few more dilutions won't matter one way or the other. I could be wrong, after all, I have been here a long, long time and have been wrong so far, but I feel as if I may recover my investment here, which I had written off some time ago. It has always been a bad company with lousey financials and management so nothing new there VOR. Sony is the key for cash, brains, supply and marketing. Good Luck.
Yes Sweet and gang my group followed it through and it is a company dealing with motion detection that MF feels will be in all wearables. Something to the tune of 485M over the next couple of years. What interested me was the clear bracelet as a screen. I don't know about the rest of the wearable computers, but i can't see trying to read emails and content on a bracelet when you can project that info onto anything. As a side note, I feel Sony will address the embedded cell phone market soon as they need to set the pace in such a huge market. They have what MVIS needed all these years, brains and money. This is too big not to address ASAP. JMHO
You know something funny, we are all on the same page one way or the other. Bull 1 and Bull 2 go at it all the time and both would like to see success here. The big difference is that those that realized what a liar Tokeman was early enough made out like bandits. And those like Hill and Karl who knew the tech better than the rest of us gave better timelines and were a lot more accurate than Tokeman trying his best to keep this outfit afloat. Being dishonest, telling half truths, for years may turn out to be his best attribute. I'm always willing to give credit where it is earned and he may get an atta boy out of me yet. Fact is, we all want to see this succeed so our side will have their day. I need about $9 to recover Put 160,000 into this and have had to trade and average down since. Went in too much as I went over the 10% that I try to keep as a lid, but not by a lot. It would be nice to see a product and maybe some real revenue like Amazon which took years to make it, as I would really feel vindicated that I recognized a huge change taking place that would benefit everybody. I just hate feeling like I was taken by a Jeff Skilling, a two cent con artist. Been around too long to feel like that.
Oddly enough, I don't doubt anyone who has bet against Tokeman for the past ten years. Giving management credibility has been a nightmare and they have never once, just once made a correct call or given accurate guidance. I can't wait for the day when these constant shorters are wrong. I want to see them wrong once, just once. Both sides of this coin, just once. I actually think Tokeman has an outside chance now that there is someone with money to develop the tech and get it embedded into something, so I stay and wait with a chosen few, for that day when once management is right. And, if it doesn't happen relatively soon, I'll be almost certain the tech is just no good because he has stated that everything is in place, but I have heard that from him before, more than once.
Well,, have yourselves a dam good time Bull. I will be here occasionally checking in as this fails to excite me as much as it used to. Your dime is mostly likely spot on and you have Tokeman working for you there so it seems like a pretty good bet. I will remain here in MVIS purgatory.
Well, I really don't know anyone who doesn't want to see cancer eradicated. You are confusing making money with sound business practices and cheap dirty tricks with emotion. They aren't trying to ruin INO they are just taking advantage of the opportunities Dr. Kim and the BOD presented to them to hammer the pps for their own gain. I am long INO and knew what was going to happen when Dr. Kim changed direction. I just don't know how much short term damage it will do. I sold a third and bought back two weeks ago and that was a money decision, I didn't hate INO or the tech or what it will mean to cancer patients, I did it for the gain I saw. You guys and gals have to put things in perspective here. I am not totally convinced that the science is going to work as completely as you seem to, so I await further proof in P2 and will know soon enough if we are as great as I think we are. All the pieces are in place from what I have read and seen, so my ticket has been bought and I will continue to suffer at the hands of AF and the rest of the shorts banging us for every nickle they can. It's all about money right now, and if Dr. Kim is right, you won't be able to hold us back and the fame will come soon enough.
Working for us after the first week? Did we make the Russell 2000? Very nice progress with the head and neck launch. Wish the Street viewed it as positive. I suppose the big new investors aren't done ripping good ole retail Mom and Pop apart at the BOD's behest. Well better days are coming I hope. The only thing that could make this worse is a bad P2, but that won't happen, right?
Dr. Kim and the BOD want all the promise in their hands, remember. It is their doing that has caused this change we see taking place. We were fat, dumb and happy rolling along with momentum and promise of riding this wave. /the company decided to move on, not retail investors.
Yes, he did give everyone a reality check. It isn't anything we don't all know, but to hear him cautiously repeat that in an interview as we near critical mass was a hammer shot to the head. I had to reread it again due to the unexpected tone. I now look for a very volatile couple of weeks with the shorts piling on big and the company trying to make announcements to calm things as best they can until P2 is finished. Speculation will now run wild and we didn't need it here. I was hoping for a slow rise into final results. I feel blindsided here with this announcement and with the RS after listening to him say Grow Organically. Since I am new long since the first of the year, my trust in him is not as strong as some of the rest of you folks. I tend to take CEO's at their word and use their guidance as an investment tool. Love the Science, not sure about the management yet, even though the look great on paper and they read well. Quite a group he has assembled.
It does matter, we just sacrificed 75% of our shares to stop this kink of #$%$. What was all that damage about if not to get a better class of investor and put a halt to this manipulation?
Sure it hurts. Here we sit 6 years later listening to the same guy saying the same thing every CC to lead us to believe there is really something to this tech. Things do look better now, but far from First and Goal, which is what got me heavy here. He is much quieter now and less excited, and I believe somewhat embarrassed, and should be, but basically says the same dribble every CC. Nice to hear from old friends. Stop by again.
Come on, this is how RS works almost every dam time. Nothing new here, good ole adam is a tool and so is Jim Cramer and the street. They are tools of the hedgies and nothing more. They bring little to the game for retail Mom and Pops. The company decided in March to change course and move on without retail. Dr. Kim and the BOD took some advice, I believe given to them by the new holders of the shelf who have their attention, big time. Certainly this is what was expected, as how else are the new holders going to gather shares at a decent price without the tools? If you were of the opinion that they were lining up to buy at market price after the split took place, I think you were very mistaken.
I was certainly pleased that the pps held up well the first two days after the split and feel comfortable with the impending news for Roche and the Russell coming up soon as I see this as a stabillizing factor and should help support Dr. Kim and the company pps.
