  • Uni-Pixel Mentioned Favorably In Barrons 6 comments

    In this past weekend's Barron's report, the cover story was all about the annual 'Big Money Poll' that Barron's conducts in conjunction with the assistance of Beta Research of Syosset, New York every March. The poll had responses from 185 insitutional investors accross the country representing "both smaller firms and some of the largest asset managers in the country". They were each asked to pick their single favorite stock for the next 6-12 months ahead. The results are below:

    What makes this most interesting is that not only is Uni-Pixel included, but it is also the only micro/small/medium-cap stock in the list. At $339 million market cap, it is 1/80th the size of the next smallest company (National Oilwell Varco).

    Things will continue to look up for Uni-Pixel (NASDAQ:UNXL) as more and more coverage is obtained.

    Disclosure: I am long UNXL.

    Hello,

     

    Do you have an idea about the upside potential?

     

    Because de stock knew a big up since the start of this year.

     

    I do not know if I have to wait a pull back now.

     

    Best regards

    Author’s reply » Hi ManiakTT,

     

    The upside is still huge, with many predicting $100+ by the end of the year. This poll at Barron's was done at the end of March when the stock price averaged approximately $28. Furthermore, the secondary offering was just completed at $32.

     

    Therefore, I would say that now is still a good time to buy

    At this point in time I think the market is only pricing in the Dell and Intel agreements, and is still awaiting guidance for additional capacity and sales. This much provides a floor for the stock.

     

    If the Kodak deal is only for North America production, there might be a similar deal with an Asian manufacturer for sales in that area. The market would have a lot more to chew on. So the ceiling is high and the floor is high also.

    After a tiny easy-to-miss item listing UNXL in a poll we now have an entire article questioning the entire premise of UNXL; the past failures, the dubious exec talent, although they overlooked the recent insider sales of 17 to 32% of their entire stock holdings.
