I have all the respect in the world for Dr. Kim as I feel he is a great scientist. I do not however, grant him god like status due to his Wharton education and his business execution. I have two family members with masters from Wharton and another coming up very soon. They have used that education to rise to the top of Wall St. banking, but it was their work, not the education that made it possible. To many here just give him an automatic pass for everything he has done without question. The concerns I see voiced here are refreshing as I felt there were no investors weighing the whole picture. Perhaps the company will view this MB and see just how some of the loyal long investors feel and address our concerns without bothering Bernie.
An under performing management. Seems ADXS and others are eating Kim's lunch. Both INCY and ADXS are plowing ahead with product and partnerships while we await.......I don't know, Peer Review, data, you tell me.
Looks to me as if Dr. Kim is being out managed by our competition.
My biggest sticking point is that the company is too cheap. With all that is going on for us, all the positives, we are valued at next to nothing. This is a nasty place to be with appl, goog, Samsung etc looking to enter the space with their own products. Would hate to see us taken out at this point before we really start to run on our own. I would like to see a real effort to support the pps and I just don't see it. I have been in takeover stocks before and the price was OK, but none had this kind of potential. I have an uneasy feeling that Tokman is still learning on our dimes. Sony would be a player if an offer were to come, but I'm still uneasy until I see real pps appreciation.
Yes, dismal. I believe the tech would of made it on its own. I only give Tokman credit for Sony and that saved the company. I will be happy with $6M at $100 and believe it can happen. Sweet spot is why I'm here and have been since 2009.
You have to remember that "First and Goal" to Tokman was a five year proposition. Now we have smiley faces to interpret as hard evidence of pending success. I was hoping for numbers of any kind coming out of the ASM. I can remember an analyst saying to Alec in a cc many years ago, "Alec you're going to have to give us numbers sometime" and his response was Patience. The whole world needs numbers in order to understand where a business is and where it is going. ASM produced nothing to grab a hold of. Hoping the next CC will reveal something better such as, laser numbers and not just a vague "no problem", or ramp numbers for the year, or even a number for next year. I would love to hear the CFO say something the street can relate to. NDA's are one thing and they are to be respected. This lack of investor interest on the part of management isn't. CAn't deny the company is in the best shape of its new life at this point and the outlook is fantastic, but they could do so much better with a little effort on our behalf.
Most of us have at one time or another emailed IR and the answers are always the same. We can try, but they are not apt to help shareholders. They havent in the past, but perhaps they will enclose a smiley face since that seems to be the driver right now.
You guys hit it right on the head. Pushed back and losing partnerships and no Peer Review yet is all contributing to the stock action. There is a lot of concern among shareholders as we drag on with no news or updates.
Yes, I think so. Both you and jim are on good ground here. This is the reason I'm here. This is the point when MVIS will get more than a token look.
Nothing. Tokmans performance up to now has been dismal. I could take this subject and run all day. I have no problem with NDA's. I have problems with vague inferences that leave far too much unanswered. No announcements on advancements we should be able to give shareholders without violating those NDA's. NO point in arguing with you folks that live and die MVIS. I buy, I sell, I hold. I am long and loaded at this point.
I mentioned revenues as a driver. I also feel that any pops will be sold off to the tune of 20% quickly as it has in the past without increased Institutional ownership. If AT is reaching out to strategic investors I haven't noticed any results. Point is, we need the tutes. From what I can see as a retail investor is that the story remains untold. Just pointing out the obvious.
I didn't complain, I responded to VOR's post. But I do think the company could do a better job for us in the PR department.
Well that is the way the game is played and unfortunately companies like this are easy money for them. The lack of support by management and the fact that they are news locked allows them to be the silent partner that these short artists look for. Institutional ownershipis the best way to counter these short artists. MVIS has made no attempt to increase that portion of our investment community. Not that we don't have the news to do it mind you, they just don't really know how to play the game. Granted they are a small staff with almost no analyst coverage and the customers won't throw our name out there either as secrets are the order of the day in this arena. Sooo, without analyst, without customer support, without PR's, we rely on smiles. When a new product hits the street with a name like Sony, most folks will want to buy Sony as their pps has done well and they will be presenting a new tech. How many will dig deep to find MVIS is at the core of this tech I don't know. I know we won't see "Image by PicoP" as we were led to believe so I'm not sure how long it is going to take to get rid of these 100 share lots. We may be sitting here next year at $3 or $4 wondering when will we get noticed. I'm sure increasing revenues will prop us up so I don't think the above will be in play, but my point is, that this may still be a very slow go at the pace we are moving. Tokman is afraid to reveal too much and he hasn't given us a dam thing in reality. We all have to guess at what the business is and where it is going and how fast. Ten years seems to me to be enough time to learn this game.
All these pumpers are hearing voices in their heads. Constantly pumping news that never happens and events and partnerships that never take place.
