You are asking a message board for advice on your investing buys and sells?
I would be interested in knowing your net worth! LOL!
Would be nice, but there is absolutely nothing that would support such a prediction. Main obstacle is management saying they want to go it alone and not consider any mergers, a position which has been maintained for a very long time. This is not to say there are suitors out there frothing at the mouth to snap this little company up. A likely suitor would have to establish synergistic value for such an acquisition, a situation which has so far not been realized, insofar as I am aware.
Where the heck did you pull that information from? From where the sun don't shine? LOL!
Your pain is based on unrealized profits while my pain is more palpable and based on actual loss, albeit paper loss. When I bought at 72.14, after considerable dd, all indications were that this might probably be the new low base going forward, given all current and projected market conditions. LOL!
From Bloomberg: "That's because only about 4 percent of shale production needs $80 or more to be profitable. Most drilling in the Bakken formation, one of the main drivers of shale oil output, returns cash at or below $42 a barrel, the IEA estimates. "
Has the Saudis' accurate production cost per barrel ever been disclosed? Also of interest would be the annual cost of sustaining their lavish kingdom. These figures should provide an idea of how long they might be willing to suffer in their attempt to stifle U.S. production.
I understand the Saudis are quite politically sensitive to the fact that without their oil reserves they would just be a bunch of beggars in rags wallowing around in a big sandbox. They still have several decades of remaining reserves at the current production rate which they are not willing to abate, despite enduring significant loss in revenues. Sooner or later it will all come to an end and they will have to look to Mohammed for an answer to their continued existence.
From a 10/30/2014 article in 24/7: While it seems counterintuitive that oil service stocks could have huge upside when the price of oil is the lowest in over two years, the fact of the matter is the cost of onshore fracking and horizontal drilling has dropped dramatically over the past four years. Although the rig count will actually drop next year, the demand for fracking and fracking sand is actually expected to increase. A new report from Jefferies not only highlights top stocks to buy, it shows some huge price targets on the top companies in the firm’s universe.

U R correct. Exactly the same situation with the 2008 banking debacle. I picked up 20,000 shares of BAC for 7.50 and since sold off 14,000 shares at 17+, albeit that was more of a fundamentally shaky situation. Panic equals profit for those cool of mind. Will not be surprised if Buffet picks up a few shares of this extreme value opportunity with solid fundamentals. He is always a buyer of value shares when there is blood on the streets. GLTA
Though my pain in this investment is palpable, I take great comfort in the extreme discomfort the Saudis must be experiencing from this drop. Putin must be terribly unhappy. Cannot last forever. Correction blast to the upside is inevitable. GLTA!
Interesting that the latest Motley Fool analysis of this market promptly eliminates DDD as a survivor and competitor to HP's fusion technology. Note the bottom of the article which states that not only does an individual Fool analyst own DDD, but the Fool itself recommends this stock. Go figure who is saying what and who really knows what's going on and should be believed. LOL!
Hey godfrey, if you think you will make a quick 5 or 10 bagger from this stock, then you are thinking wrong my friend. I believe this is a long term pull for those who appreciate the special attributes of the technology which this company has to offer. Traders and those who expect a quick buck from this investments playing the news are going to be sorely disappointed. JMHO
I believe AAPL has a paid-up license to use the patented technology for consumer products. This supposedly cost AAPL a cool 20 million. Under such an agreement, unless it has been revised, AAPL probably does not have to pay LQMT any royalties on sales going forward. However, this relationship with AAPL is important because if AAPL does incorporate the liquid metal technology in its products on a large scale, this will provide a much needed commercial acceptance and blessing to LQMT for its subsequent licenses/products to the many other potential customers of its technology.
They are disappointed, like me. I got in at .24 and thought I got it at the bottom. LOL! Anyway, as a metallurgical and material science engineer, I stumbled upon and became fascinated with the compelling technology of what this company is doing. Their relationship at present and foreseeable future with AAPL doesn't concern me since that potential will be quite limited compared to what this technology can realize across the very wide and very deep industrial board. Not a quick buck maker or trade to be sure, but I believe the visionaries holding shares will eventually prevail in the not too distant future since commercialization must happen fairly quickly or not at all. I simply cannot fathom this company struggling for commercial acceptance over the next 5 -10 years and the shares remaining in the penny department. JMO and GLTA.
Gee, I did not know that. I am sure this will be instructive to others here who are also concerned about their investment in this company.Thanks.
Better watch your short positions carefully. IMO you are going to be in for a lot of anguish.
SLCA products are utilized for maximizing extraction of both oil and gas. Except for the share price which suffers because of the knee jerk reaction to dropping oil price, the company will continue to be fundamentally sound with outstanding financials. Perhaps the shortsighted sellers will finally realize this after the next two quarterly reports come out.
