    LG making a webOS smartwatch

    Palm acquired the remnants of Be - both BeOS and the developers and that was the foundation for WebOS.
    Great tech , still can't die . I had BeOS and Palm Pre and even BEOS stock.
    That should be promoted as 'smart watch for zombies' unless someone make Amiga-based smart watch, of course.

    14,277 Call options exercised for $10.50 Oct.

    You mean 'sold' or 'bought' , right ?
    'exercised' means something else.
    Also , it's worth to mention that it's weekly options for Oct 31st , not regular monthly calls which expire on Oct 14th.
    It's about 14k of contracts at the opening and the rest are small change after.

    People posting their trades on yahoo MB are not trading for profit, they trade in hopes to get peer recognition.
    It's all false hopes and paper trades anyway.
    Invest real money.

    LCOS Vs AMOLED

    Well, you found the analyst who you want to believe. Good for you.
    There is no problem with brightness of EMAN displays. Google knows that, eMagin knows that, Craig-Hallum doesn't know that. There are maybe dozen of reasons that Google Glass is going to stick with LCoS - brightness of EMAN displays is not one of them. Maybe Google found LCoS is so cheap that it's no-risk expense during R&D. There are reasons why student drivers learn to drive on VW and not on Ferrari.
    US military makes contracts with eMagin partners, they didn't read Craig-Hallum note yet. They are definitely going to switch to LCoS as soon as they get the memo from these reputable analysts.

    "OLED discovery is worth of Nobel Prize" gets thumbed down ?!
    What happened to this board ?!
    Whatever, discuss price du-jour and trading strategies.

    Someone knows something

  • surrealskiller by surrealskiller Sep 26, 2014 9:30 AM Flag

    is the date for decision on Nobel Prize in Chemistry.
    Dr. Ching W. Tang is one of nominees.
    That may bring some media exposure for OLED . If he get it , of course. If not then there is another year.

    Did I just hear that right?

    No, it has not.
    There is some research on making contact lenses that has embedded sensor that evaluate blood glucose from changes in you eye cornea. There are some speculations that it's possible to detect low BG by scanning iris.
    The difference between academic research and FDA approved device is several years. Don't fool yourself, it was just shameless pump of GG.
    There are also CGM devices (continuous glucose monitoring) and there are new versions coming out from DXCM and MDT that would connect to iPhone and Android devices and send alerts there. Maybe this is what that guy had in mind. In this case, GG would be treated as much of a medical device as Apple watch.

    "This board will be in decline from here on in."
    This board is a pale shadow of what old PANL board used to be, not sure how much more decline is even possible.

    March 2.50's look cheap

    by iamgarce Sep 22, 2014 11:16 AM
    surrealskiller surrealskiller Sep 22, 2014 11:35 AM Flag

    You mean puts , right ?
    If I had to choose between calls and shares of EMAn then I'd go with shares.
    5 contracts of March calls costs the same as 100 shares now. It's always hard to sell calls back - the MM take the advantage of low volume and keep the spread and you'd have no choice but sell at their price. Buying calls to get EMAN stock at strike price is not worth it. It's better to write puts and get the money now and then get the stock later. And March 2.50 puts don't produce enough money.

  • Reread the announcement .
    GTAT will provide business update in a week of 9/29 after closing the quarter.
    All that means that they are going to release one more announcement on exact date and time of webcast and that could be on 10/03 .
    If it would be something sapphire plant / Apple contract specific they would just make a meeting with analysts. None of the companies I was invested in cares about retail investors. Any good out of ordinary business news is disseminated through closed doors meeting with financial community. Any bad news is dropped on everybody out of the blue. Nobody schedules a guidance update if it's going to be bad.
    Here is my take on what's going to happen :
    - one more news from company with exact date and time
    - no guidance changes except maybe narrowing the range .
    - stock price dwindling lower up to actual webcast.
    What possible could be announced so bad that the stock will drop further and I think will not be but that's what holds me from committing more money into GTAT before call :
    - resignation of some top executive (CFO/CTO/COO ...)
    - downward revision of short term quarter guidance (this and next quarter)
    - disclosure of some fine print of Apple contract
    The most interesting part will be Q&A part of the call but they will be not as informative as people expect.
    There will be questions of Apple use of sapphire and they will be deflected with "can't tell" response.

    No.
    It's on option strike pad.
    14301 calls are about to go worthless.
    Monday will be a better indicator .
