KOPN is trying to position itself for buyout.
I hope KOPN management wised up.
I think they want out of HMD hardware business completely - they want to make software, sell licenses for their voice control etc. In some sense they are right - it's a much higher margins business. The trouble is that they are in the same room as Google and Apple and other elephants. It's either buyout or be a patent troll.
never buy before earning release. Investing is about making financial decisions based on information not on hopes/rumors/yahoo mb posts.
Never buy/sell at the open, you don't know how trading will go during the day , there maybe a news pending.
Don't chase the stock, if you think you came up with price you are ready to pay, stick with it. If you were wrong and the stock took off and you missed opportunity , re-evaluate how you came up with that original price level. Opportunities will come again, it's your decision making process that will hurt your wallet if you don't improve it.
All my personalities use the same ID.
It doesn't help neither - still hard to say who is who.

GRMN is money printing machine - you can get the dividents and sell calls at the same time.
Aprils 55s are going for almost a buck .
"this is indias answer to the google glass" - search for it .
"Ahmed has designed the device with people like firefighters, police and EMTs in mind, who could use critical data immediately without using their hands. Mistral’s wearable device has already been put to use by the Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD) to assist in crime scenes. Though this version has mainly been developed for industrial use, Ahmed did reveal that they have a sleeker design in mind for commercial use in the future."
Time to confess, Kopinites . All those patents are worth nothing - Ahmed designed it.
Anyone familiar with Kopin Golden-I creature will not be mistaken.
The text under picture is just .... priceless ?
"It may be a long wait for people interested in buying the Google Glass in India. In the meantime though, a Bangalore-based IT company has developed a Google Glass-type device of its own, which is already creating waves abroad,
Mistral Solutions, founded by Anees Ahmed, has developed a wearable computing device that can be operated by one’s voice. There is a near-eye screen, which looks like a 15-inch display to the eye and all the functions can be done using voice commands. It also includes connectivity options like Wi-Fi and Bluetooth."
Wait, it gets even better :

Stangely, it's not picked up by news yet
It was on oled-info.
It is on official site of skyworth on 12/02
Not sure what is the size but there are 2 of them.
"On November 28, Skyworth Group officially announced to unveil the first OLED TV of Chinese brand in Shenzhen on its media briefing of semi-yearly report. This time, two series of OLED TV carrying Tianchi operating system were rolled out by Skyworth. The new products are as thin as 5mm. The new OLED products indicate that Skyworth has taken the lead to master the key technologies for displaying equipment of next generation and shown its strong capability of industry chain integration. The unveiling of China-made OLED TV is of substantial significance for spurring the technical innovation of China's color TV in the future."
LG makes 55" TV screens. I forgot what is the current Gen number of r the fab they have but I think they can make 2 TV screens on it. Or a gazillion of tiny watch screens.
Overall, from my understanding of technology, it doesn't take too much to retrofit existing LCD manufacturing facility into OLED manufacturing.
There might be another place for Apple - some factory in China. There are Visionox , Skyworth and probably more. Last time I did research was about two years ago and at that time China was making large investment into LCD/OLED manufacturing plants (first LCD with possible retrofit into OLED) . Not sure how big is the progress they made but they do make their own OLED TVs now.
Acy's blog guided me to some site and it had an ad for this program
One soldier one goggle. Non-profit organization. it maybe discussed here before, if not look it up .
Quite interesting development - as I understand it's a grass root initiative aimed to get NVGs to all soldiers. I don't think anyone in the US Army or navy or Air Force has technical arguments against NVGs . The stumbling block is plain money - would it better to spend more on drones or on NVG or on lighter kevlar or something else. I am kind of confused on what are they targeting with their campaign. Congress or DoD ?
As EMAN investor I really welcome it but I don't get it.
it seems that they were surprised by decision as well. If they would expect it they would prepared something better.
The question not answered is effect on future business.
Rambus tale should be a warning to all companies trying to bank on patents.
I mean it could be a winning game but only for short time.
Technology is developing at such high pace that patent law became not a protection but rather a show stopper. Other companies would either try to get around patents or litigate. No win here.
Case in point - Universal Display today.
Samsung's license agreement is not tied to patent litigation outcome.
Whoever shorted this stock after Assenio predictions maybe in some surprise very soon.
Oral hearings in EP court are on 21-22 and even if judge decision will not be available right away I think people who attend the court would get the hints from the discussions there.
That's why I think this 2% pull back is designed by MM in preparation for short squeeze on the news.
Who cares - for OLED shareholders it's the number that was manufactured counts.
There is also another number - 30% return rate at Best Buy . So what - you're at OLED investment mb , not Samsung one.
"PANL to 100" is back !
Do you seriously think that next year it will be $100 stock ?
You do understand that it requires not only keeping current P/E but also about 200% revenue growth, right ?
I'd go with a more modest 150% revenue growth for next year and P/E dropping to more normal values.
Yes, it jumped $10 this November. But do you remember last November ?
I am not saying anything about underlying business but this stock is irrational as market irrational can be.
If you made money, make sure you can keep it, don't be greedy.
Let's face it - it's not R nor D.
It's media who present it this way and get paid for doing it.
Libertarian party was on ballot in all states but one. Why their candidate was not on presidential debates ? How about Green party or Constitution party.
The presidential debates would look like carnival show and it would probably cause more indigestion cases in general population.
Instead, people were lead to believe that their votes matter and they were making "well informed" decision. Nothing will change in 2016.
There is a conference on OLED and printed electronics on November 20 in Santa Clara
Hosted by IDTechEx I guess (the agenda is on their site) - there are plenty of different researchers from different companies.
