    Low flying. From the SI board

    What a joke, "earnings growth". REFR will lose money this year, and will lose money next year.
    Management takes home fat paychecks and have been living off of investors for nearly 30 years as a public company. "Potential" has been touted that entire time, and never delivered. Some of their most important ex-licensees back the Electro Chromic alternative to SPD.

    Bard,
    I'm sure that is the line promulgated and pushed by Harary. No one could realistically think that an 80 year old technology could not be improved independently of RFI and its licensees. The only argument is at what cost.
    The fact that all other company looking into SPD dropped out many years ago tells us that they didn't see potential sales justifying the expense. So far they have been correct. I continue to agree with the vast majority of corporations who are more than capable of leaving RFI and their licencees in the dust if they cared to.
    What this shows is that all the pumpers and promoters are off by at least an order of magnitude in revenue projections.

    Another factor I pointed out to old time promoter aarrcc- remember him? As REFR patents expire, and licensee patents become the operative barrier to entry, it will be the licencees, not RFI, calling the shots.
    One again, the fact they they are not exercising their leverage shows that it is not worth the effort.

    Dream on like you always have. Some of you may be genuinely snookered, and some are paid for their over abundant optimism. Anyone believing the REFR story in the past would have expected profitability years ago.

    More than three years after Mercedes finally put SPD in an automobile they remain alone. You better figure that all those other automakers that Joe claims to have active SPD programs are just not interested after sitting it out this long.
    REFR's single analyst still thinks REFR will lose money in 2015.
    All meaningful patents have run out, yet not a single other manufacturer shows any sign of SPD development.
    Even most REFR licensees give no hint of activity- those that have not conspicuously dropped out.

    So, keep spinning tales. The general market is not listening.

    View vs SPD

    As I pointed out, and you fail to dispute, there are far cheaper ways to deal with heat and glare. I have it from the direct work of architects designing LEED certified buildings in our neighborhood that adjustable tint glass is very far from being cost effective, so far that it doesn't even enter into considerations. So, although i strongly doubt your figure of 30 minutes, if doesn't matter. Feel free to provide documentation if you have any.

    Also, do you have any answer as to why Joe is still beating the bushes at the Craig-Hallum investment presentation?
