    • The dollar values of the orders are undisclosed. Shares are up moderately, but remain close to a 52-week low of $0.10.

    • Liquidmetal (OTCPK:LQMT +1.9%) saw 101 request for quotations (RFQs) for its products in Q2, up sharply from 36 in Q1 and 4 in Q2 2014.
    • CEO Tom Steipp: "We recognize that leads need to become qualified opportunities that then yield prototype orders and ultimately production orders. This takes time and we certainly dont expect every RFQ to turn into a production part, but the increase that weve seen in the front end of our process over the last several quarters, is truly encouraging."
    • The disclosure comes a week after Liquidmetal announced receiving its first European prototype order.

    • Liquidmetal (OTCPK:LQMT) shares are reacting well to the company's disclosure Apple has extended its exclusive consumer electronics license for Liquidmetal's IP by another year. 13.8M shares have been traded, far above a 3-month daily average of 968K. The market cap is currently at $66.4M.
    • Patently Apple, which has covered many of Apple's past Liquidmetal-related patent filings, states Liquidmetal has been used to create custom alloys for the Apple Watch.

    • Liquidmetal (OTCPK:LQMT) discloses Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL) recently extended its exclusive license for the use of IP acquired or developed by Liquidmetal from Aug. 5, 2010 onwards within consumer electronics products. The deal, which previously lasted until Feb. 5, 2015, now lasts until Feb. 5, 2016.
    • The full text of the deal amendment will be filed with Liquidmetal's next 10-Q. A similar amendment was announced in May 2014.
    • Apple has filed a long list of patents and patent applications related to liquidmetal. Some debate exists about whether Apple is free to use the alloy within the Apple Watch, given a deal between Liquidmetal and Swatch.

    • Liquidmetal (OTCQB:LQMT +9.8%) is now up 29% since Friday's close. The metal alloy developer is once again seeing big volume - 4M shares have already been traded vs. a 3-month daily average that (thanks to yesterday's volume of 24.5M) has risen to 1.6M.
    • Aside from any Samsung speculation, hopes that liquidmetal could be used by Apple's rumored car project are likely helping the company's cause. The NY Post recently reported former Ford VP Steve Zadesky, believed to be heading Apple's effort, was "the sole signatory on a 2010 business contract" with Liquidmetal.
    • The paper also notes Apple and Liquidmetal have filed 17 patents together, with 14 coming in the past year (previous).

    • Liquidmetal (OTCQB:LQMT) rose 13.9% today to $0.164. Volume (24.5M shares) was far above a 3-month daily average of 1.2M.
    • The apparent trigger: Speculation that Samsung's upcoming Galaxy S6 (believed to have a metal body, expected to be revealed on March 1) will make use of liquidmetal, following a teaser video that showed liquid metal animations. Animations, of course, are an imperfect predictor of a metal alloy's use within a smartphone.
    • Last May, Liquidmetal extended its exclusive license to Apple for the use of its IP within consumer electronics products. However, the extension only lasted until Feb. 5, 2015.
    • Update: There's also speculation that liquidmetal could be used in Apple's rumored car.
