Don't hold your breath. That is what Joe is best at........making you think things are better than what they really are. Ask 10 people walking down the street about the World Expo and see how many even know it exists. BMW has already confirmed this is not a "gotta have" technology or it would have been in the new 7 series launch. The article is correct in labeling the spd roof as "show". The real advantage is in the side windows, sun visor and architectural windows. Apparently the cost is still too prohibitive for these applications. There is a reason we don't see take rates.
to not only educate the public about spd technology, but the media as well. As a recent motortrend article shows:
"Look up to see the sky through an electrochromic sunroof. If you've flown on a Boeing 787 Dreamliner, you've seen this technology in the windows, replacing the sunshades. Woodhouse says Lincoln would love to do the same for the windows in future cars as a way to eliminate the complicated shutters and drapes found across all of saloondom. "This is much neater. It could be on the back window, the side windows … imagine the top portion of the windshield darkening to block the sun," says Woodhouse."
Woodhouse is seeing what we saw a long time ago.
Long term shareholders of REFR would understand that this is nothing more than a lack of interest in an unproductive company that has been living off the shareholder dole for close to thirty years now. Fund managers are only a swipe of the finger away, so that excuse doesn't hold water.
If I had my choice of going to a RFI annual meeting or going to the dentist to have a couple healthy teeth pulled.................I'd pick the dentist.
whether you want to admit it or not. If we have a series 7 absent spd technology, it will be a major blow to RFI. Well, as much as it can be to a 1 million plus revenue producing company. No excuses about tech wasn't ready or available. Been testing for years. No leaks from private viewers to this point.
for a new Mercedes Maybach s600. Good video of maybach showing magic sky control throughout, plus an endorsement at end, for magic sky control by CNET's Brian Cooley recently released, entitled: On the road: 2016 Mercedes Maybach s600
Interviewed on ABC news last week. Revealed he was diagnosed with basal cell carcinoma on his nose. Not the most serious of skin cancers, but still enough to get your attention. Has since become an advocate of skin cancer awareness as related to uv from exposure to sunlight. Targeting children for education of this growing problem.
After numerous delays, looks like Sea Glass carousel will open on Memorial Day. Finally starting to see the flexibility of spd technology.
By the way, Hugh Jackman, another potential marketing celeb to add to the list. An Australian, American and European connection.
Honestly Lester, to anticipate anything with this company or spd product launches is an exercise in foolhardiness. Both long and shorts that have been around here long enough know what I'm speaking about. Take today's cc, anyone that thinks they will learn anything by asking questions will get the "optimistic inside out" answer from Joe. Heck, it's nothing but a joke now. And anyone that might invest in this company should take that approach. And my theory about the e class is just that........an exercise in foolhardiness.
Tenor, be careful with that logic, will get the hardliners up in arms. Just by looking at the current numbers on the surface, when s class sedan kicks in, could in reality be profitable. However, I believe the e class with side spd windows included could be the true turning point for this company. No doubt we need the additional oems, but the e class could really turn their heads and move them into action.
Aw c'mon Lester, surely if you can wait one year, six years isn't that much longer. As Joe says that's "soon".
Oh, by the way, we're all "new" here.
"A week of lower highs, lower lows and lower closes on the stock price.
That isn't "price fluctuation" that is a trend." - rayofsunshine99
Sorry, for the late response, been away. You are correct if your trading timeframe is a week.
Have to agree with NDixon on the likelihood of BMW, just don't know if it will be 6 months or 6 years. Either way for Joe that timespan means.............. "soon".
"you can be sure that it would not be beneficial to shareholders"
Don't consider the majority of those shorted shares to be "legitimate shorts". But either way, they're using the opportunity that a dysfunctional management team has given them over an over throughout the history of this company. The price fluctuations really have no bearing on my outlook at this time. Filter out the noise from the cheerleading from both sides. Two things to watch:
Total cash and non-cash compensation
Total revenues per PR
One thing I would like to see (although I'm not a fan of the profession) is the longtime, "outside" shareholders retaining a panel of their own, of attorneys ready to react in response to those shareholder concerns that are not in line with management or a gutless BOD.
From what you have reported, I agree. From your experience is there a point in the process when you use common sense over ego and say, "hey, maybe we better find a way to settle this" ? I know I over simplified that concept, but is there a turning point in a majority of the cases? How often do the "legal" heads admit its time to settle?
with no knowledge of how the scale is tipping. But if my company was in litigation on some matter and the odds were not in my favor for a positive settlement; wouldn't it be in my company's best interest to accumulate as many shares possible of the company in which I would be settling with, knowing the future of that company and the odds on favorite for a price jump when such settlement is announced?
