of market cap in a week on no news. Actually on good new contract news. And on settlement of the taxation issue.
But the really scary part?
The Euro is still at $1.37.
What does that have anything to do with the 150pc April $8 call I bought yesterday? I've been waiting and watching for over a month and still overpaid a bit.
I think the final amount is still in discussion and does not need to be finalized until late 2014 sometime, I seem to recall reading that. And the deal is "slightly" more inclusive than the previous deal. I don't know about a huge increase like EUR 900M...
Waveguide from Vuzix with the collaberation of Nokia will bear fruit.... but where are the big contracts? Here's a gem from 2012:
ROCHESTER, N.Y., July 24, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Vuzix Corporation (TSX-V: VZX, US OTC:BB, VUZI, FMB: V7X) announced today that it has received phase I of a multiphase development contract, from the US Army RDECOM CERDEC, Night Vision and Electronics Sensors Directorate, for the development of a wide field of view See Through Waveguide ("STWG") for potential use in helmet mounted queuing systems and other head mounted display applications. The contract is to explore the possibility of supporting waveguide optics with fields of view in excess of 50 degrees and with a path to full color operation.
The annoucement last week from Vuzix was basically showing off the commercial version that came from this program, no?
Before the 2012 Thanksgiving Rally, I had made my FB banner the Nokia logo, and my profile picture the Wiki Mr. Mechelin.
Today, I have just made my profile picture Mr. Idestam.
The all-white with Nokia in blue and under that also in blue "Connecting People," with the black and white images of either co-founder.
It's sure to make your friends say, "Actually no I do not believe I want *any* of what this guy is smoking."
Have to look at Nokia sure, the MSFT deal put over 200M shorts to covering, or like the early BBRY short, when it rallied to $17 somehow, magically, that one last time.
But how about Tesla, YELP, FB, TWTR, LNKD... it's been a not so justifiable bloodbath for shorts in 2013.
Wait, are you saying Twitter being valuated higher than Nokia, or FB valuated higher than Comcast is... silly?
This was from 18 January 2013 and discussed at length here. Small wonder NSN wins such large % of CHL and China Telecom?
Pricey. I locked up 150pc April $8 for $0.45 when Nok dropped to the $7.30s and THAT was expensive.Might get one more bear raid before February, I couldn't buy calls today.
That does indeed look like they’re claiming a patent over the electronic method of providing directions from stored maps. And assuming that the patent is valid that would put rather a crimp on Google’s ambitions in this field.
Nokia pioneering this field for a decade already! Wuh-oh Google!! Add it to the list of IP grievances.
5-day? SSN was garbage in 2008 when I tried trading it, and has been garbage ever since. They had a very nice, very fancy intiial IPO investor presentation. That's about as far as that goes. Thought they were delisted years ago.
