    Rockstar's opinion....

    swihart_art swihart_art 10 hours ago Flag

    I've been saying that for a month or two now and some on this board say that it's not feasible....that SPEX is a pimple on their butt and they would never bother to try to run it into the ground....I disagree with that...these defendants are probably shorting the #$%$ out out of this for all they are worth and the MM seems to go along with it....somebody somewhere is holding this down at all costs...

    the short interest is 1.8 million shares as of 7-15...it may not be shorts but big money defendants manipulating it even if they lose some in the process....

  • I wonder what is going on in the Rockstar minds when it sees the price of its stock steadily declining...does anybody even give a #$%$ over there? I'd really love to understand how a stock that has had NO NEGATIVE PR at all and even MANY POSITIVES keep sinking into the mud...

    What's up Kaiser...I understand...the MM controls it all from what I've read...what I don't understand is the fact that there could be 32,000 on the bid (high demand) and 6,000 on the ask (low supply) but shares keep trading at the bid...it's like a purposeful manipulation of the stock to keep it low...at first I thought it was just weak hands wanting out but I'm not buying that anymore...

    Will CEO have good news? Not sure... I read today that a move to dismiss the Google-Rockstar Case in Texas was denied so that's positive but probably standard for a defendant to move to dismiss regardless...I hope he has good news but I'm looking forward to it for answers on what we as shareholders can expect in the coming months and I want to confirm the way things will go down if settlements are reached etc...I have faith that the stock will do well but I still can't figure out why it continually dwindles downward on no news and also on good news...I am a newbie so I have a lot to learn...

  • Let's all keep hitting the bid...every day...all day...it will skyrocket !!....unbelievable....I'm not letting my shares go but somebody out there sure loves hitting that bid no matter how unbalanced the bid/ask is in quantity...I thought supply/demand is what moved stocks...obviously not with SPEX....

    Still a newbie but what are the odds that the MM is the one holding it down so he can accumulate as many shares as he can over time waiting for the breakout on news?

    Hitting the bid, trying to keep price down,

    I specifically spoke with IR about special dividends and can confirm that the intention of the company is to reward investors with settlement dividends after operating expenses are deducted...I wrote a longer more detailed post on how this could play out with sample figures...he also confirmed that there will be no more offerings for at least a year...

    Well...if a defendant can make Spex's chart look horrible..#$%$ off it's investors then stall out cases as long as possible...maybe people will sell off their shares and the next time they DO need to raise money by selling shares (IF they will need to...I was told by IR that they can operate for a year on what they have) they will have a harder time selling shares which impedes their ability to maintain lawsuits and stay moving as a company...make sense?...something just seems very fishy about how this stock moves...

    Good news = stock price drops...this has happened a few times in the past month...addition to the Russell index and CEO speaking at an IP conference in Amsterdam at the same event as defendant AT&T...

    No News = stock price drops...doesn't make sense even more...if nothing changes then how do you go from $2 to $1.54?...everybody knows the important checkpoints for SPEX like Markman hearings so when they invested they know that this may take time...I did...

    SPEX IMO is solid....and I'm going to hold my shares and when this pops...I'm curious to see how the PPS reacts then...

    So Yoda...I'm open for an opinion...how does a stock that has nothing but either good or no news trickle down 25% to where it is today from the $2 offering that represented 10 million shares which is 30% of the float just about a month or so ago?

    34 Million shares out there....
    10 Million shares...$2 offering owns them (if they didn't sell for loss)
    10 million shares...owned by Rockstar
    5.7 million are shorts
    8.3 million left for all other shares

    Opinions please...

    Sentiment: Hold

    I totally agree...I work on a computer all day as a web designer and graphic designer and keep the level 2 open on my screen and I believe that either it is the shorts at 17% of the float, or possibly a defendant that is manipulating the price or is it the MM?...It's so obvious at times and I have posted on this same issue a few times over the last 6 weeks...others said that Cisco and Google etc. would never do such a thing but I ain't believing them...

    Every time the price starts to move someone keeps hitting the bid regardless of the upward momentum...who wants to sell so bad at a lower price when the price is making aggressive upward moves?....

    then I see huge bids for 70,000 or more but they are 2 or 3 cents lower so when it moves up a bit they hit the bid until it reaches the large bid price and then sell off huge quantities and drops the price lower making people think it's tanking...I'm not sure if the SEC can do anything about things like this but even a newbie like me can figure out that this stock is being manipulated to the negative...good news comes out about things like Russell index and the price drops?...like you said, what are they gonna do when settlement news hits...should be interesting and if it still doesn't move...I'll call BS all day long...you can't convince me that Cisco or any of the other defendants wouldn't manipulate the price of SPEX...

    Settlement news against Charter

    by swihart_art Jul 17, 2014 1:01 PM
    swihart_art swihart_art Jul 17, 2014 3:53 PM Flag

    I see your point....consider this...since they are so big...playing ball with SPEX could be a good way to settle cheaper and not have to worry going forward about more lawsuits OR they KNOW that they can't win and dragging it out will only make a settlement on the back end way more punitive since they tried to get away with it...the dismissal speaks volumes of what the average court will decide...just my 2 cents...

    Settlement news against Charter

    by swihart_art Jul 17, 2014 1:01 PM
    swihart_art swihart_art Jul 17, 2014 3:19 PM Flag

    I posted this an the IHub board and got this response from user FBI Agent (don't know if he is but regardless)...

    "I have been involved in many cases and the dismissal makes me believe that they agreed to a ballpark number and the negotiations are around there. It is probably done just waiting on the back and forth between boards to approve before announcement."

    I think he has a good point here...why would the judge have SPEX agree not to sue for 90 days if they weren't close to a settlement already?

  • If I remember correctly the judge ordered SPEX to wait 90 days before initiating a lawsuit against Charter...we are about half way through that time period.... if that dismissal decision was indeed approx 40 days ago...

    I believe that they will reach a settlement by the 90 day deadline...If not...SPEX is definitely not shy about filing a lawsuit against Charter...it will be VERY hard for Charter to win a lawsuit against SPEX after the judge dismissed their pre-emptive case...they are obviously in violation of the patents so that's why they tried to "get off the hook" but it failed...now it's time to pay the piper and they know it...will they try to fight it and spend a lot of time and money fighting or is it better to come to an agreement after their case was dismissed?

    This stock could pop at any time...as soon as a settlement comes across the wire it will jump by leaps and bounds...

  • Total float = approx 34 million....15% of this stock is short....when I think about who owns this ....30% or so by rockstar....another 30% just bought 10 million shares at $2.00 and I don't have the other 40% or so accounted for yet but some are insiders obviously...but here is a theory for your consideration...

    When Rockstar and the guys (whoever) just bought 10 million at $2 sit still and don't trade and the people like me who just hold like I'm doing make up another X%...the shorts have a playground to bash and sell short to drive price down and then buy lower...let it rise a little and repeat process...this could be why we see the price action stepping down stairs like it has and also may explain why when it starts to move upward they jump all over it and keep it down...the volume hovering around 1 million may also support this...

    If only 40% may be actively trading and we know that 15% are short...would it explain why this stock continues to be not only volatile, but also so hard to get to rise?...UNTIL...the news hits and shorts will be seriously screwed then...

    thoughts anyone?

  • swihart_art swihart_art Jul 12, 2014 10:27 AM Flag

    Yep...he said shareholders split the proceeds AFTER operating expenses are deducted...my guess is that this is what the attorney's get...I asked for more specifics but he could not provide them...this would be a GREAT question for the CEO on the conference call in August and I plan to ask this....I'm not going to take the risk of losing the lawsuit and shareholder SP goes down.... if in the event that we win... if lawyers take most of it and tell us that we profit from share price increase...I wouldn't like that set up...I would like a clear outline of how money won in lawsuits gets distributed...

    But consider this...he used the example of 34 million settlement simply because it equals the share count...34 million in these lawsuits against Cisco and Verizon is peanuts compared to their annual sales of product that infringe upon the patents...

    -----excerpt from an article I read------
    "Spherix didn't provide a value it is placing on alleged damages, but if you add up all the revenue Spherix claims Cisco has earned in routing and switching for five years of infringement, it's more than $40 billion."
    --------------
    Let's just say that the court rewards SPEX 1% damages...may or may not happen but a conservative number...that's a 400 million settlement against Cisco alone and would set a precedent for future cases and grease negotiations for settlements with NO litigation against other infringers like Verizon Huawei etc...that's $11.76 per share if divided by 34 million float (this would be smaller depending on how much "operating expenses" are given to lawyers but I'm not greedy so who cares) and that is just 1 lawsuit against Cisco not to mention that the court would order Cisco to continue to pay royalties as they move forward....Even a 1/2% ruling would equal $5.87 per share before expenses AND I still own all my shares....I'm waiting for this one through the pain of recent share price...It could be a Golden Goose for sure....even with just share price increases...

    Sentiment: Strong Buy

  • Just got off the phone with Brett Maas of Hayden IR...the shares that were given to Roth was for services in the 20 million offering that already took place...they may sell them or they may not...he indicated that there will be NO MORE DILUTION THIS YEAR....I REPEAT...THEY HAVE THE FUNDING TO OPERATE THIS YEAR AND DO NOT INTEND TO DILUTE FOR THIS TIME PERIOD...as you know the Markman hearing for OCT 2nd will happen before any dilution occurs and they plan to announce how the hearing went shortly thereafter...

    We also spoke about how a potential settlement or ruling would affect us shareholders...if a settlement/ruling occurs that amount minus operating expenses will be divided amoung the shareholders....
    example: 34 million settlement occurs...Approx. a $1 per share dividend is issued (as I said, it may be .90 after operating expenses are covered, it could be .94...just not sure at this point...) that is the company's intention...

    They will be having another shareholder conference call in August...I believe he said the 18th but stay tuned for confirmation on this...

    All of the talk about reverse splits and severe dilution is just bashers trying to get in cheap...sure things have been painful lately but those who sold out need to realize that as quickly as this share price can drop even without news pales in comparison of how it will react upon GREAT NEWS like a settlement...all lawsuits are active and communications are ongoing...I'm holding my shares strong because overnight a settlement could be reached and this will move fast if and when they announce it...look at what a cupcake can do in less than a day....1,200%...sheesh...I wish I saw that one coming....

    Sentiment: Strong Buy

    where did you get that statistic? this is extremely painful to watch...really starting to make me wonder...I've been on this roller coaster for a while and it seems that "something" holds this stock down no matter what...large bids ...huge bids don't eeven move the price....as a matter of fact huge bids drag it down....unbelievable....

    BINGO Mr. James....that's what I took away from it ....we live in the "information age" and IP is GOLD, that's why they bid 4.5 billion for those Nortel patents...Huawei will have their day in a Eastern Texas court with our good ole' American Judges to decide if they are infringing on SPEX's patents ...that is a HUGE lawsuit....
    they are one of the world's largest mfg and sellers of networking gear....

    Here are the cliff notes....
    ---------------------------
    NNPT, LLC, ("NNPT") a Texas wholly owned subsidiary of Spherix Incorporated (NASDAQ: SPEX), today announced it has commenced patent litigation in the United States District Court for the Eastern District Of Texas against Huawei Device USA Inc.; Huawei Technologies USA Inc.; Huawei Technologies Cooperatif U.A. and Futurewei Technologies, Inc. ("Huawei"). The NNPT complaint alleges that Huawei, one of the world's largest manufacturers and sellers of routing and switching products for high-performance networks, infringes five patents assigned to NNPT.

    The patents asserted in the litigation were developed by Nortel Networks. The patented technology relates to routers and switches sold by Huawei that move data across a network. NNPT contends the scope of Huawei's infringement of the asserted patents has been and continues to be immense. The complaint against Huawei alleges that the majority of Huawei's revenue from at least January 1, 2011, until the present has been generated by products and services implementing technology that infringes the asserted patents. The NNPT complaint seeks recovery of damages for a portion of the significant revenue associated with the infringed patents.

  • I just found this news out about an Apple lawsuit...this could bode well for a company like SPEX...judge rules IN FAVOR OF THE PATENT HOLDER....here is the story....

    BEIJING (Reuters) - A Beijing court has ruled against Apple Inc by upholding the validity of a patent held by a Chinese company, clearing the way for the Chinese company to continue its own case against Apple for infringing intellectual property rights.

    Apple had taken Shanghai-based Zhizhen Internet Technology and China's State Intellectual Property Office to court to seek a ruling that Zhizhen's patent rights to a speech recognition technology were invalid.

    But the Beijing First Intermediate Court on Tuesday decided in Zhizhen's favor, the People's Daily state newspaper reported on Wednesday.

    After the verdict, Apple said it intended to take the case to the Beijing Higher People's Court, according to the People's Daily.

    "Unfortunately, we were not aware of Zhizhen's patent before we introduced Siri (speech recognition technology) and we do not believe we are using this patent," said a Beijing-based Apple spokeswoman in an emailed statement to Reuters.

    "While a separate court considers this question, we remain open to reasonable discussions with Zhizhen," the spokeswoman said.

    Zhizhen declined to comment when contacted by Reuters.

    Zhizhen sued the U.S. firm in 2012 for intellectual property rights infringement, saying Apple's Siri used on devices including the iPhone violated Zhizhen's own voice system patents.
