"Form 144s are considered harbingers of future selling activity by insiders, and are even called "intent to sell" documents or "planned sales" when presented by some data services. These colloquialisms are misleading, however, and are far too simplistic descriptions that only confuse the uninitiated about the intelligence that can be garnered from the forms. "
"How do you know if the shares indicated on the Form 144 were sold? Well, if the person filing the 144 is an "insider" by the SEC's definition, you'll see a Form 4 filed documenting the sale."
Ponz, Man to Man, since you are saying that I misrepresented the facts, Do me a favor and instead of listing the Proposed sales on a 144 could you please list the Form 4 actual sales that she has made because I don't recall seeing any? And hey if I'm wrong I'm man enough to say so, I just don't recall. I'm not sure how they covered the funeral arrangements and nursing home expenses though so I could be wrong.
and hey I wouldn't fault her one bit for selling a little if she did sell some, I've followed your comments for a long time, beating up at Mr. Goetz while he was on his Death Bed, and Jr. While he was in the hospital, etc, Shame On You Once again. I hope you feel like a proud human being during the Christmas season.
Thanks, For Being a Stand Up Guy in Advance
Lol, Up on the Railing, No X don't jump,,,, but but Ponz says it is a bad investment and that I make a mistake, Lol
Funny, Man if I sat here everyday and did this I'd weigh like 300lbs.
Oops just looked finally 2:30 Gotta Run.
Yes the new flyover stuff on I-95 rte-1 looks like they finally fixed it.
Have a good one.
Just finished my xmas shopping 90% online I’m not sure how many time Fed Ex and UPS are going to have climb the hill between now and xmas but wow was that easy. I hit the mall for some ammo and I noticed a HUGE expansion just googled it is 109,000 square foot Cabela's. Next year I’ll proly drop back to 50/50 and support the investment there. Nice!
No Ponz some of us have a life, in fact I won’t even be able to listen to or participate on the call, and no there isn’t an insider in the company that posts on either board they are too busy working. As for me, When I get a minute I need to try and figure out this Newest Board Member this Siraj Nour El-Ahmadi cat Co-Founder and CEO of Menara Networks, Inc., they uh - - - develop products - - and solutions that enhance layered optical transport networks. He seems very successful (Sold his last company for 6 Billion I think) and he would not be here if he thought that Perkinamine had anything but promise. Poking around the edges here I’m guessing that they will be aiming for Modulators/Transcievers in the $500 buck range, can you imagine, ¼ the price and ¼ the electric, Win/Win, just guessing but that is how it looks, Moore's Law, Green, Logical step forward, Next Gen stuff.
Ya know you Mix the Ex CTO of JDSU that invented today’s industry standard Modulators,,,,,
With the Ex Senior V.P. of Corning (credited with saving the company),,,,
Siraj dude,,,,, yes I think that we have a winner. If I had to guess I wouldn't think that there will not be any block buster stuff on the call, but I hope I'm wrong.
Good Luck there Ponzi, God Bless, not sure of what you are about but if it makes you happy I guess have at it.
Lol, I decided to wander over to the Yahoo boards, obviously Ponzi is still infatuated with me, (not sure what the heck to make out of that) and no Ponzi I haven’t been posting under other names, I was in New Orleans then Tampa, now I’m heading up to the cabin and I actually managed to work about 3 days per week in between. Anyhow what I say won’t change the science; I know that, they are working the perk and shooting for $500 devices that use about ¼ the electricity, it will no doubt upset the apple cart across the board.
Someone said that I would not make a good trader and I have to agree I would not, I’m a long term guy. The gig move was kind of cool to watch, good for the gig crowd, honestly I haven’t a clue why it moved but hey if it makes you happy at 2 bucks (it is actually 25 cents to me) (since the days of making my call on the 2 companies) Good, that is what I go by, I don't change the goal posts every time Gig reverse splits.
I’m very happy with the progress they are Finally making at Lightwave.
Anywho’s that about all that I have to say, have a happy turkey day. I think that it would be a good idea for Ponzi to discuss what he does everyday with his family and listen closely to their response but please Ponz, try and leave me out.
X um what X,uh Jr., No, oh that's it, X Boy out.
No 50 cal at the cabin this year though :( Oh they do have quite a bit of snow though, I wished I bought that prius instead of keeping my ol truck because it may have helped with this global warming spell that we are experiencing.
Bump Not even sure how the Yahoo board works anymore. Ihub is much better, see the board there.
Gig is getting pummeled, sorry Ponz
We have always known that if they could get it to work in a device (the size of a grain of salt WITHOUT PROTECTION) we could potentially disrupt Telecommunications, Data Communications, and Turpin with Optical computing and of course the military, I didn’t see encryption or home land security but I guess that goes without saying.
Watching this from the days of 4 employees I’m having trouble getting to 12, I think there may be some new cats we don’t know about, proly for the better,,,,else some of us may check out there linkin in contacts.
The Organic vs. Non-linear Optical Polymer slide lays it out there as does the Gig- High price Mods and packaging also the fact that they are not an EO polymer development company. They have to hate that.
Oh and the slide about 10Gb/s is the typical pipe the cloud/data center, good info for the masses to grasp.
Oh and our favorite 180c CMOS survivability fact doesn’t hurt.
The Development efforts slide is nice, Plain and simple.
I expect to see a press release in short order on the Prototype Device results not sure what gives there but no doubt that we will see something.
The current approach using Multimode Fiber (Old Way) but I’m surprised not to see the world “Single Mode” on the LWLG solution slide.
Box to Box within the data center, roger that
How about that 10 years ago Fred Goetz Jr. used the price $500 bucks as his guestimate and it looks like it still holds true today.
So yes I agree that short of a major no brainer announcement, as the general public starts to get it, and we get as little as $10k to $100k additional pressure on this per day, once they suck up the shares from the folks who just cannot wait any longer, then we will move north.
As info for the new guys I've followed this for 10 years so I try to break it down, over the years at the Share Holders Meetings I've met many Lightwave investors and some appreciate it when I break it down.
We have a couple investors from the Gig Optix board that HATE me because about 8 years ago that stock was flying high at like 50 Bucks a share and after I did my homework I called B.S. Well you decide that stock is at like $1.50 and heading south. For some reason they think that I could affect quantum Physics, so they figure if they post here they will look intelligent. One thing I'm not is intelligent, but I do have a boat load of common sense. Gluck
Notes from myself to myself, some like them, some hate them
So Lightwave Modulator is 1 mm squared, guys that is 1/32 x 1/32 of an inch, or in other words about the size of a grain of salt.
Honestly I would NOT expect to see Fred Leonberger at an investor oriented (get the name out Road Show), he may however someday choose to handle a Dog and Pony get the name out to the science community though, I think that in the end we may OWE him that. And if it is an under the ditch thing we proly owe Joe Milller the honor.
As for Joe Miller and Fred, I would hope that when the time is right (if they haven’t already) both Joe Miller and Fred Leonberger would call on a few CEO/CTO types for us. That EO polymer scientist told me long ago that they have the clout to call just about anyone in the business (or government) world.
LWLG material will replace Silicon as the material of choice; IMO compatibility with silicon and FemptoSecond response time is why.
It is still going to take a while for the learning curve to happen but IMO yes we are on our way and as the folks start to get what we (the nerds here) spent 10 years researching it will take off, I’m sure that it will frustrate us but we’ll get there.
I can tell you this the first time that Joe Blow Public figures this out and as little as 1 Million shares trade in a single day it will double at a minimum after that who know 5-10 bucks, $3.33 is the next point that I’m looking for. You can make up names for the charts or whatever, I’m just trying to spell this out in simple to understand language that most can understand, could a scientist tell me where I’m wrong, heck yeh but I’m not a scientist.
Good Luck Figuring this investment out it is like a Drug that has just past its testing, Perkinamine will be used in MANY MULTI-Billion Dollar markets. IMO 100% sure that unless there is fatal flaw that none of us know about this company will absolutely be taken over.
Oh I forgot to tell you because perkinamine is manmade, it does not naturally occur in nature whoever wants to use perkinamine will have to buy it from the manufacture, of course that is going to make for some interesting game playing by those who cannot get it, try to discredit it.
As Forest would say that is all that I have to say about that. Please excuse the typos.
Oh Perkinamine is extremely cheap and robust, also competing technologies could not hold up to air, apparently perkinamine doesn’t have an issue with air because I remember one time they found a 6 year old slide of unprotected Perk and it produced results that were as good or better than the original Teng-Menn test. My computer just locked up, I lost my train of thought so I’ll just start rambling again, Cheap, fast, Stable Oh it does not bleach out when struck with a laser which is extremely important. OK, so you have all of these universities and industries out there that are trying to make lithium Niobate work they are getting grants, you have companies Like Gig Optix that have a molecule but it is not stable far too expensive to be practical but it works. So you will see some bad mouthing etc that is life. 2 days ago Lightwave Logic announced that they were finally able to get Perkinamine (Microscopic Nanotechnology) onto silicon and get it to work in a DEVICE but they did not announce the results, so one could draw 2 conclusions. 1 – it was slow so they don’t want to tell us. 2 – is was very good perhaps so good that they are working on something or that the company is under an NDA. One with reasonable intelligence would conclude that if it has Fempto Second speed as long as the Light or Electric striking was switched fast it darn sure would react fast. You decide.
OK, Now this is really crazy but for some reason Perkinamine also has 3 Order Properties, also known as Chi3 or X3 what that means is that If a beam of light is traveling near the perk and a beam of light at a certain frequency strikes the perk it will change the frequency. (Light Switching Light). I’ve been following this for I think 8, 9, maybe 10 years I cannot remember when I first learned of it, but it was the Goetzs that figured this out. Since that time the Pop Goetz has passed away and His son Fred is no longer physically cable of working. The guys that have stepped in, picked up the pieces and moved this forward are a who’s who in the Computing/Modulating and Fiber Optics/Communications business. Oh and the speed at which Perkinamine can go from excited to relaxed is a Fempto Second, that is the same thing as what a second is to Like 37 Million years, extremely fast. Oh the government tested it to protect satellites from laser threats but it was too fast, that is it when from relaxed to excide so fast that it could not stay excited (opaque) to protect against the threat, This HOWEVER is perfect for an optical switch.
OK so where are they today? I think I was 3 or 4 years ago they invented the spacer system to align and stabilize the molecule like an egg carton holding eggs. In the past 2 years or so they have cleaned up the microscopic dirt in the molecule to make clean Perkinamine, last I heard it was about 99% clean, in doing that it enabled them to reproduce consistent results. Oh I forgot to tell you that Perkinamine is a Very Stable molecule that can withstand temperatures in the CMOS fabrication facilities that companies like Intel use. Up until this point all competing technologies would melt when they flash soldered the lil green boards used in computers. Oh Perkinamine is extremely cheap and robust, also competing technologies could not hold up to air, apparently perkinamine doesn’t have an issue with air
101 Dummies Perkinamine Post.
The next step in Computing and Communication.
A Cheap, Plastic, Stable, Fast Freak of Nature using very little energy to do so.
Over the new few Months there will be many investors New to the world of Light in Computers and eventually replacing Electrons in computers. So why should this happen? Most are aware that today’s technology is about as small as it physically can get and the reason is that electrons interfere with each other so they cannot put them any closer together, AND they produce heat, massive heat, a considerable portion to the energy used in today’s computers is for cooling the computers. I think it was Justin Rather of Intel onetime said if it gets smaller the computers will be hotter than the center of the sun. (So you would need a school bus sized Air Conditioner hanging off the side of your smart phone to cool it.) So this is also a Green Play. Photons are a crazy freak of nature kind of thing but somehow they can pass right through each other and they do not produce heat or experience cross talk. Used in computing soon they will be able take a single “what if” question and split it up into a 100 single questions (because it can be arranged in an array) and quickly get an answer. Does the nose on that guy match a known terrorist, etc. Electrons however must ask the same question 100 times in a row.
So what is Perkinamine, somehow The Goetzs (here in Delaware) envisioned a way to make a chromophore (a dye) that can be added to plastic (a host) that can control light by changing the waves that it travels in. This happens in one of 2 ways when you excite the Perkinamine Molecule. The first way that it can do that is by using electricity, so as the light travels by the Perkinamine and you hit it with a 1 or 2 volts (they haven’t told us yet) somehow the molecule flinches and affects the light in the waveguide. OK, Now this is really crazy but for some reason Perkinamine also has 3 Order Properties, also known
Lou Glasgow Former Corning Director of Research, Organic Technologies, Organic Technoligies, Get it?
Bim Pickett former Chief Financial Officer of Invista soon you will see Mr. Pickett and Bucci step up to the plate. M and A, Get it?
Oops I almost forgot the latest cat, Siraj Nour El-Ahmadi, Co-Founder and CEO of Menara Networks, Inc., has specific expertise in the design and fabrication of optical transceivers. Transceivers, Get it?
Yes I think that we are close, You have to admit that this is one heck of a TEAM. IMO as we speak some of our heavy hitters are making a few visits and the plan they are working on,,, well stay tuned. As for Ponz, I recommend a big heavy down filled mitten on his hand because when he hits himself in the center of his forehead it won’t leave a mark. YES IMO THEY ARE CLOSE but as of yet many remain skeptical, good for those still accumulating, I’m telling you the first day we trade 1 Million shares, wham past 2 bucks and well on our way back to the $3.33. You will see.
Good Luck, for anyone that doesn’t get it, sorry about your luck. It is in a device, now it is just a matter of time, will it be 1 day, 5 day, 1 Month or 3 Months, spin the wheel if you wish to try and trade it, but be careful do not expect them to tip there hand. Soon enough we will witness firsthand the future of communications and communicating, and soon enough and there WILL be games I guarandamtee it. Sit back and enjoy the show and watch the pros try and freak us out. It will not be a game for amateurs Or those faint of heart. Imagine that you are a broker that somehow has to get 500k shares for a client, think about it. And the institutions, forgetta bout it, Up we go, but it will not be a straight line.
Let’s look at Just who is involved, who is Lending their name, their reputation to this company and what they did with their life.
Ross Fasick just stepped down, from everything that I can see Ross lead an exemplary Life retiring from Dupont as the Senior VP of Polymer and Automotive. Polymers, Get it?
Joe Miller was Corning’s CTO and Senior V.P. Research and Development he also sat on the board of Dow Corning and he is credited with Saving them, Oh by the way Corning is the world’s Largest Manufacture of Fiber Optics. Fiber Optics, Get it?
Teru Turpin Terry was a former NSA optical computing guy IMO he was the reason that Northrop Grumman bought Key West. Do not sell him short we do not hear much from him but I think we will all be very surprised and pleased with his work once we figure out what the heck he is doing. NSA, Get it?
Tom Zelibor ON 9/11 he was the Admiral that lead a three Carrier Task Force in combat operations in Afghanistan after 9-11 (in total there were about 100 vessels) Military Backround, Get it?
Dave Eaton, He spearheaded DuPont’s entry into polymer-based components for fiber optic telecommunication by founding DuPont Photonics Technology. Polymer Based/Fiber Optics, Get it?
Fred Leonberger Former CTO of JDSU, the man is credited with inventing and bringing to market today’s industry standard Lithium Niobate Modulators and was in charge of mergers and acquisitions for JDSU. Modulators and Merges and Acquisitions, Get it?
Lou Bintz at Lumera he was the lead photonic device scientist whose duties included device design and modeling capabilities, optical testing specification and build out of optical test and characterization facilities, and a principal investigator for a USAF electro-optic polymer modulator government contract.
Babu working in medicinal and organic chemistry at Astra Zeneca Pharmaceuticals and most recently Cephalon, Inc, Clean organic molecules, Get It?
It is usually not a good thing but I googled it and it does not appear to be happing now so I’m not sure what you are talking about and the posters here should not be misled, (because for goodness sakes they certainly have enough to worry about). Perhaps you can correct me but all that I can find involving the SEC was when Swenson resigned from the board in 2009, Oh Gig settled with the federal judge on that I forget how many shares, Oh and um Judson resigning in 2011 after being on the board for 3 years, and Julie Tipton The senior V.P. of Operations was just let go, um in January 2013. I also remember a couple CFO’s resigning and the recent resignation of the director David Mitchel from the Board of directors he didn’t even make it a year, let me look hmmmmm June 25 2012 to July 31, 2013 yep wow I stand corrected he was there for over a year, Yup 13 months. I don’t think that found anyone to take his spot, I’m sure they will though. But nothing much else I mean oh and MACOM when the 3 Gig employees jumped ship and went there but they settled that one also. Oh and a few months ago when they took a pay cut for a few couple months (until they lowered expectation down to a 30% drop in revenues) then restored the salaries, oh and didn’t they even give themselves bonuses , Lol and we are at the 1 year point where Gig was awarded 125th fastest growing company. Lol because um “"Upon inception in 2007, we created a business strategy based upon 3 pillars: 1. Innovation; 2. Execution; and 3. Financial Growth Engine. These core ideals still hold true and strong today and have helped us become the leader in 100G semiconductor and optical components that enable high-speed information streaming. We are honored to be recognized as a Technology Fast 500TM company again this year and we look forward to future years of expanding growth."
So I think that you made a mistake about a current SEC investigation
Sorry to post guys but Profit requested more often.
Probably 10 or so of the most coherent understandable logical posts I’ve read on this board. Honeslty I think there is an effort just to muddy this board so that you guys cannot talk about it. THINK about who might have an interest to post gibberish so the shareholders cannot communicate. OK enough about that, as info I did not listen to the SHM but if what you guys are posting is true it sounds like the company has a very large percentage of shareholders participating in the voting process. Interestingly enough it sounds like they are upset. Honestly though it almost too late for you guys to effect a change unless they want to make it for their own good. I still go back to the formation of the company as to whether any shenanigan was going on both at Lumera and the Swenson story.
Good Luck guys, it sounds like you guys are all riding on the bus and the bus will go where it is programmed to go, at this point I don’t think that you can override the Hal 9000 and those who program it are not within reach. Honestly your bed has been made and IMO even if they get a device to hit I’m not sure that you fellas will be participating in the reward.
Good Luck I know some here will take this as bashing, I guess it is what it is, have a good weekend.
