    Hi Badg,
    Companies (especially the size of HAL) don't just abandon patents application. It just NEVER happens no matter how dumb the patent is.
    That's why all the large companies have thousands of mostly useless patents they can lever against other giants.
    I never said they won't treat water or provide water treatment solutions. I just don't think they would be on-site solutions similar to what ET is offering. My understanding of the ART is that the judge considered HAL decision to be the compensation ET deserved with possible upside that might substantially surpass the 300mil ET asked for.

    I have been holding ET from the days they were removing paint from ships.. I am not an American and so I might have a different perspective..
    My guess is that the current gas price in the US is what is keeping the price of the stock down, you have just too much gas. (in Europe the price is about 5X in Japan 8X - this is a major problem) as long as fuel prices (cost of water transportation) is under control the only thing that would help ET is some kind of a disaster...(which no one would like) the current price just cant support the added cost of ET. Anything that would both lift the price of gas AND will weaken the dollar (=raise the price of fuel) would create an environment in which ET can VERY quickly go up. so basically ET best shot is Ukraine.(16% of Europe's gas flows though the Ukraine). once Sabine Pass facility in Louisiana starts working (2015) and later the Freeport facility (2017) the US would have the capability of exporting it's gas and so I wouldn't expect any major shift in the stock until then.
    On 4/Jun/2014 Russia and China agreed on the Altai gas pipeline and have made their move. both countries have the power to seriously hurt the USD in case the US would start exporting gas to Europe. As there is no real onsite alternative to water treatment beside ET (now that HAL is out of the picture) I think this would be the shifting point for this company.
