  • Is Google Scared Of DuckDuckGo? [View article]
    Agreed. Bing might not be nearly as big, but Google is aware of their presence and modest growth

    "Slowing down" = they are still putting money into this ad campaign

  • Generex: A Stock Suitable Only For Its Officers And Directors Or Carl Icahn [View article]
    Good article, and fair speculation. One has to wonder, though, why Ichan and friends haven't jumped in. Is there something we don't know, other than shoddy management?

  • Shares Of Vringo Are Becoming A Long-Term Investment For Investors: Why It Might Not Be A Bad Thing After All [View article]
    Justin I've enjoyed your writing, but I didn't agree at all with the tone of your buyout talk. If we learned anything from last year's battle, Google has no interest in settling let alone a buyout.

    "Instead of shelling out hundreds of millions of dollars, Google should simply buy Vringo. Google is on track to bring in close to $60 billion in revenue this year. I'm sure half a billion wouldn't make that big of a dent in their pocket books."

    I really hate that type of logic when it comes to David vs Goliath lawsuits. They don't just acquire companies wily nily because they don't make big dents in their pockets. If so, then you could argue that Apple should even more so buyout Vringo, because they have $100 billion in the bank, (and could certainly utilize Vringo's patents). But more acutely, do you really think Vringo would agree to be bought out for $500 million right now? With all of the appetizing lawsuits that you outlined above? And with the looming multi-hundred million payout that they are expecting from Google soon? I'd say right now, with Vringo in the drivers seat, a buyout would cost over a billion, maybe 1.5 billion, and that is certainly a dent in a pocket.

  • A Brand New Chapter And New Opportunities In The Wicked Story Of Cel-Sci Corporation? [View article]
    The survival of CVM is relying on Multikine, everyone knows that. With more and more dilution, Cel Sci is clinging to hope. Geert Kersten does not give me much confidence in the business side of things. He has a handsome salary, and gives me pause about buying CVM stock. As an investor, however, I wonder if it really matters if CVM gets delisted. If hits the pink sheets and subsequently drops a bit more, I would consider jumping in at 50 cents, only because CVM is shaping up to be the only penny stock that has a reasonably legitimate drug in phase III testing. Far from a guarantee, but favorable Multikine news would push this stock to anywhere from 200 to 2000 percent higher. And bad news might make it drop 50%. That's why, despite my dislike of Kersten, and maybe a 15-25% chance of success, I'm probably going to buy if it dips into the .50's.

  • Does Vringo Have A Plan Beyond Google? [View article]
    DSS is a mess of a company, just like WDDD. Vringo doesn't need to buy out anyone. If anything, they could be bought out by a company looking to improve or bolster their search, ie MSFT, YHOO, AAPL etcccc

    I think people forgot about TTWO, and once the GTA numbers come out, Wall Street will catch up quickly.

    As i stated in my article below, capitol hill is not yet a credible concern. They will lag for plenty of time in order for vringo to net a few court wins.

  • Does Vringo Have A Plan Beyond Google? [View article]
    Agreed- as i stated in my prior vringo article, their r&d is what they need to ultimately develop a real business. I think vringo has plenty of patents to utilize, and WDDD looks like a mess right now that vringo cant afford to wade into.

  • Vringo's Timeline Vs. Obama's Patent Troll Plan [View article]
    Noo not at all- what i mean by hitting it out of the park is a solo home run in the bottom of the 9th when your team is down 8 runs. Sure, it's nice, but the team ultimately loses. In this case, Obama might actually churn out some action and clamp down on the trolls with some real, actionable legislation, but, as numerous commenters here noted, with the way Syria went down, and a few other shorfallings, the patent reform home run will bring them within a few runs, but a very tall order of actually winning the game..
