    look at the INTK activity. From late Sept to now it's gone up from a penny to four pennies. At least once or twice a month, someone is buying over a million shares, but the rest of the month, activity is low ( although it seems to be trending a bit higher). What do you think?

    I was thinking about buying some of the coating suitable for basements and seeing what I thought. Good products don't mean the stock will go up, but it never hurts to see what it is they're selling. I'm having work done this spring and may try a coat out after the repairs are done. If I do, I'll be sure and post a review.

What isn't actionable today is what makes multi baggers down the road. I'll be watching this.Tracking what becomes of this new technology as well as other emerging and possibly disruptive technologies. Identifying winners before the herd arrives is what we are all about. Thanks again, it's an excellent lead.

    Rob, may of the gades who served have already been subjected to needless vaccinations. Remember the gun they marched us past in platoon formations in boot camps. bam, bam, bam, bam just delivering vaccine after vaccine with no needle until they figured out that the body fluids splashing back on the gun got injected into the very next victim.

     

    This looks so much better.

    Headquartered in Durham, a stone's throw from a NCSU campus. (CREE) has pretty close relations with all the local universities as well as the local governments. They tend to rapidly incorporate the latest and greatest into their products.

     

    They also have LED components, LED chips, power, RF and materials products.

     

    All told, may not be as indirect as one would think, if thinking only of light bulbs.

     

    I've been tempted many times to get the stock, but only recently has it begun to move towards a more rational valuation (and still has a ways to go, IMO).

    Robert,

     

    Good to see you coming back.

     

    So, you got "educumated" huh?

     

    Put the knowledge to good use.

     

    Speaking of which, I've found a message board that might be interesting to you and the folks here.

     

    It's ostensibly an (AXPW) board but there's one or more folks heavily involved in nano-technology for battery applications, apparently.

     

    Some very good links and knowledge right there on the board.

     

    Less than 400 posts, so I suggest you use the got message box and enter the number 1. Then just start scooting through the messages and you'll pick up a lot. I would've posted links, but there are so many.

     

    As you get into the message number 100 range, it gets very frequent.

     

    Take a few days if needed, I think you'll find it worthwhile.

They are scheduled to wrap up the Cannon deal soon and their Chinese counterpart should begin production soon after. I'm keeping an eye on events and may add to this position but I'm still cautious on this one. If the Cannon deal falls through due to U.S. government regulators dragging their feet it may be a total loss.

    Good evening to you Mr. Ferguson,

     

    IPO Desktop had SZYM as his IPO pick of the week back on May 24:
    seekingalpha.com/artic...

     

    On a separate note, IPO Desktop does not have a pick of the week every week, but when he does, they seem to do well... for example, he picked Zillow as pick of the week this week.

     

    Still tracking his record... but looks solid.

     

    As for SZYM... lots of interesting stuff their doing... curious if their scale and margins, as well as the timing of their arrival to market, will work out for them.

    Author’s reply » Jon, Springer. Greetings. Thanks for your input. I'm actually more impressed with these two companies (RXII) and (SZYM) the deeper I dig into them. I'm thinking both will ultimately prove to be winners long term if one has patience and intestinal fortitude. However neither one is for the faint of heart as both bare significant risk.

    Bob: (ALTI) I've been interested in for some time. This penny was a $20.00 stock before the Lehman disaster. Glad you mentioned this stock, because it had floated off my radar. Now, it's back on.

     

    Kudos, pal. Gracias!

    Well...you have one heck of a start! ALTI up 20% today, and you are now back in the black; up $0.25.

     

    Great call! Congrats.

    I'm still waiting for Bloom Technology but their stock is much less likely to be $0.01 and more likely to be $200. Their technology is already proven given its being used in Google's buildings already.

    Robert, are there any particular nano stocks you feel are investible as we drop back into the macro-economic trough? I am nibbling every time the market dips into the 10,000's DOW or near the 10xx S&P, though currently as trades as it cycles back up again.

     

    Still holding my SRSR, and ready to add more around $.04 or less.

    Author’s reply » TB: Greetings. There really isn't anything on my watch list that is a screaming buy at this juncture. International Nanotech (INTK) is promising long term with a lot of international exposure and a seemingly solid product line. Talon Therapeutics (TLON) seems a bit toppy right now but if the phase III trials get positive results it could take off. RXI Pharmaceuticals (RXII) is also in a wait out mode on phase III trials and just popped by 13% on the FDA lifting it's hold on the trials. Dias Analytic (DLYT) is promising as well but faces head winds in the current environment. I'm going to make an effort to get out to Lea County NM to look at the organic fuel processing plant but that is not yet publicly traded so not investable. I'll post up any new developments. Thanks for your assistance in the Nano Patch.

    It's one-off early adopters like that who eventually get the word out and the rest of industry to take notice.

     

    The only problem is it's still awfully dog-gone slow to get adoption widespread.

     

    Good article Robert!

     

    Those temp differences were significant, although folks unfamiliar with industrial processes and energy costs might not recognize how substantial those gains are.
