And because it's a public company we we rinse our throats with Everclear (rinse no spit) , fell under the table and say "d@mn the margin"
I still have some pre-RS shares in my scottrade account
In my etrade account I sold out all my 0.97 shares back in 2011 for profit and my 7+ which I bought also in 2011 for capital loss. Not sure if I got smarter over years but it's nice to be here now.
What's your gripe , Cane ?
Shack managed to get into EMAN near the top ( somewhere at 8+ - check in the charts when it was)
He's been in sour mood ever since. He is not a day trader, at least not in EMAN.
And even if he was - I have no problems with day traders, better to have them instead of daily volume of 2000 with a single trade of 20 shares throwing chart into trashcan.
Leave the guy alone
Shack, I hope you were smart to take the profit in VUZI and riding on free shares there.
" this is the 1st time that a fed chair moved Emagin stock"
Well, they had to start at some point.
We are going for world domination after all.
They didn't need to get above 5 to get listed - 4 , I believe, is the entry threshold. I could be wrong, though.
I think the tell signal will be when insiders start selling.
Obviously, Paul Travers is not doing it for fun. He got it listed on Nasdaq and his slice of pie is quite good now. At one point he will decide he got plenty to live happily ever after. And the price he paid is pretty much 0 except that thousand he got on open market last year so his decision to sell would be indication that he don't think it will go up any more.
Watch the SEC filings - even if they are 2-3 days late on Edgar.
As you are there read the recent filing from Feb 17 - it's about Intel investment into Vuzix.
There are some interesting clauses there - e.g. Vuzix is paying Intel 0.5% interest every month. Not chubby, eh ?
EMAN had troubles with production and one of their orders went to KOPN. That was DoD contract and it made to KOPN revenue spike.
If anything, it could be Six15 but not Vuzi, but I think it was through General Dynamics or Raytheon or something like that.
Yes it has.
We know all we want about you.
You shouldn't gamble on Spindle.
And while you are right that Chinese government is not very fond of SunPower we prefer you would not spread that opinion too much.
And we know that you love your Lenovo tablet too much to get rid of it even if it has customized security patches.
We have pending news.
For about 2 months already, one more to go.
Relax, grasshopper, enjoy the ride, you got in at good times.
Good luck there - HIMX can move fast.
Although , when I see strikes 50 cents apart and weeklies , i think that someone really wants to play games there. Wall Street sharks and wolves always come up with ways to lure suckers in . Remember binary options ? And mini-options ? If you can make some dough there, good for you.
khajso is so precise.
As of Kopin - I know why they pre-released their earnings. They have better than expected earnings because they got unexpected contract . That was for their existing displays, not related to this nanojet stuff. Kopin's Golden-I is dead . Where have you been when they almost got the contract with Verizon ? Kopin is moving to all software now. They are killed by eMagin and Himax - if customers have money for OLED they go to eMagin, if they want LCD type then LCoS by Himax makes the trick.
Comparing HIMX to KOPN (and even to my fav EMAN) is just ridiculous. It's like comparing Apple to Blackberry - both make smartphones.
KOPN is a nice range bound stock
If it goes above 4 - short it ; goes below 3 and a quarter - cover . Or the other way around if you want to accumulate free shares. Watch it for few months and you can trade it to your advantage.
I'm just giving you information and encourage you to do some more research on him and if you find something interesting it would be nice to share.
The guy owns a boat load of shares.
He has so much that he cannot really dump them without hurting himself. On the other hand, if he keeps them he is a millionaire only on paper. So if he decides to sell he will do it slowly but steady.
He has enough shares to influence management decisions. And I bet, no buyout would be considered without asking his opinion first.
If you remember before Intel's injection VUZI had some serious hurdles to get listed on Nasdaq , mainly because of warrants holders. Well, he is listed as warrant holder under 3 different names in today's SEC filing (SC 13G/A) .
I am still not clear about agreement between warrant holders and Vuzix management after Intel did cash infusion.
As I understand, and I could be wrong, warrants are kind of hidden debt. Or more like hidden dilution. In case of EPS calculations, if company bears loss they don't count but when company has profit they suddenly are taken into account.
Every non-profitable company needs money to keep afloat. First, it's venture capitalists, then it's IPO , then it's a guy with lots of money .
I am surprised to see EGHT on his list. I used to own it and lost some quids in crash of 2009 then got in again and made some dough back. I'm still following it but it doesn't move too much.
Sorry, I know it's a sign of temporary insanity to reply to your own post but I just found another connection.
Vista Partners promotes both VUZI and OHRP (and gets paid for both).
So his piece of pie is about 10x of daily volume , without exercising warrants.
If he would exercise warrants he would have more than 10% ownership.
He is also Director at OHRP
Mr. Hirschman has served as a Director at Ohr since March 2009. Mr. Hirschman has over 20 years of experience in money management, leveraged buyouts, restructuring and venture capital. Mr. Hirschman currently manages three private investment funds including the Adam Smith Investment fund as well as the newly organized AIGH Investment Partners. Mr. Hirschman's experience in the securities industry includes tenures with Wesray Capital, the investment firm founded by former U.S. Secretary of the Treasury William E. Simon, and Randall Rose & Company, a $100 million money management firm based in New York. Mr. Hirschman has been actively involved in the financing and structuring of over 70 companies, including dozens of high technology companies. Over the last four years, personally and through AIGH Investment Partners and related entities, Mr. Hirschman has structured and led 18 private placements in high technology companies. These deals include several well publicized private placements in companies such as 8x8 Inc. (NASDAQ:EGHT), the second largest independent VoIP company, Tegal Corp. (NASDAQ:TGAL), the former semiconductor equipment division of Motorola, and Sigma Designs (NASDAQ:SIGM). Mr. Hirschman received his M.B.A. from New York University.
There is also some interesting article "the ugly truth behind Ohr Pharma" written by person who is short on OHRP. Probably doesn't relates too much to Vuzix, but is an interesting read about big money shots invested in VUZI
You know that Vuzix demoed waveguide on CES 2014 as well, right ?
It was full color 720p at that time.
Vuzix has a booth at GDC which is happening in a month, maybe it's worth to stop by to get clarification on the schedule
What's your entry point in HIMX ?
This is HIMX board after all - people discuss HIMX related issues, not someone's winning strategies.
It wasn't Google PR that came out , it was Google investment into HIMX .
Pretty much like your beloved VUZI - the stock wallowed for years, and Intel came out and put money into it.
With some little differences - HIMX is cash positive for years , doesn't do reverse splits nor delistings, doesn't hire Chardan to pump the stock, and has more than one product on the market.
But who cares about those subtleties, right ?
It was CES 2015
The guy is not wearing SONY tag , that's lanyard holding the tag. Sony probably made it for all CES visitors and exhibitors. Stop at 0:49 - the guy name is Ricky Kim and he works for Celluone .
The answer is Google Glass.
Now meditate a bit on the subject how insulting your ignorance is.
Out of all the smart glasses on the market you failed to research the one that started the buzz.
If you do just a tiny bit research on Himax, you'll find that they also make image sensors and display drivers and whole bunch of other chips. So, in reality, pretty much all the smart glasses out there may have one or another Himax component.
