  • Update: Ditch Vringo On This Pop [View article]
    Absolutely agree. Finally a press release with teeth, so to speak. The Romanian and UK developments provide quite a bit of clarity. The pressure is building on ZTE. Could a settlement be coming soon? Maybe before the end of Q-1 '15? That's what I'm hoping for.

    You got the numbers right KP, 6.5 %, not 5.5%. Never saw the 1.3585% number before but over time have learned you do get it right. Good to see you back in the mix. The ZTE numbers have a lot of potential movement to the downside, IMO, since getting Chinese companies to play by the rules can be difficult. That said, I can only guess on that, since so many countries are involved in the litigation. Look at Germany, China (losses), UK and New York (wins). Lots of risk to go around.

    Another factor that isn't brought up enough is their influence on the political system due to the huge cash reserves they have. I can't prove it of course, am totally convinced they sway opinion on issues important to them. Obama even mentioned them in his state of the union speech. I am not a conspiracy theorist, just have watched and this is my take. Makes me sick. If a person (corp.) has enough money and your country is essentially bankrupt, well where is that country going to look for help? If that makes me crazy , so be it.

  • Sirius XM Might Be Due For A Breakout [View article]
    From the for what it's worth dept: I have an older XM boom box radio which can and is also used in my vehicle. Specifically, a radio with a portable receiver enabling me to get a signal in two places: the truck via a mounted base, and in the boom box "cradle", for a lack of a better description. Presently, there is a limited # of channels due to the age of the unit , so I guess it's all relative in terms of value. Certainly hope they don't terminate use of the boom box. When it was for sale it was for a very short time, and was replaced with a much weaker receiver we had installed in another vehicle. The signal was significantly weaker in the new one. The installer told me the docking station I own has a more powerful signal and was discontinued since my unit allowed others to latch on to mine. The other options to use SIRI (home stereos, streaming, portable devices), should be monitored IMO, too properly evaluate their growth potential in determining value of the company. I confess that have not done due dil recently so don't know. Would also pay attention to the churn rate which had been very low last time I checked. GLTA

    Apparently, their legal team has a well thought out plan on how to court an inventor, steal the IP, wait them out, re-file the patents and then tweak them so as to legally alter, and then profit from them. All the while donating to the political powers that be, so all will be swept under the rug, so to speak. Do no evil?

    Thanks for the clarification on dark pools. The way I attempted to determine where the shares are (please correct me if necessary) as follows: 93m total sh's, 11%/10,230,000- held by insiders, 37%/31,000,000- institutions,assume long positions,16.5%/13,190... share short as of 12/15. Using this method where are the 41.3%/38.500,000 shares not in this calculation? Hope I am missing something very simple here. That is where my concept of dark pools begins and ends.

    Agreed, there is the chance regarding ZTE and other actions, of collecting money. Mayer and Wallach may have been deferring to the Supreme Court to decide. There really is no other way to sensibly look at their decision. Hoping for a good year in 2015.

    Dean1111: You bring up a good point, that is an option. The shares had traded on the Amex prior to the nasdaq where this may not have been the case. Still, the situation is not a good one,IMO. My hope is the Judicial branch, SCOTUS specifically, rules to clarify software patent questions, obviosness, invalidation etc... and sets some kind of precedent. Seems like patent attorneys, corporate watchdogs and former officials involved are waiting for answers on this. Is it like waiting for Godot?

    Also, from what I can determine by simple math there are approximately 42 million shares somewhere deep in "dark pools". If, as I speculate, whoever has these shares has no problem losing all the value they might have, it could be their way of attempting to bankrupt VRNG. Quite frankly, this thought could be pure melarkey, but can't figure out what would happen to the "missing" shares, if the company is delisted. I have owned shares of a company that was delisted , and sold it for .22 cents/share and watched it disappear. Hope this is not the fate of Vringo.!

    Vito: Do you or anyone here have an opinion or knowledge concerning the Nasdaq delisting process? I noticed the line mentioning delisting is now a fixture above my summary page. IMO, there better be a large sum of settlement funds flowing in soon or a creative financing/ arrangement to keep the company afloat. I'm finding it more difficult to believe in a positive outcome, for a variety of reasons. From what I understand they have a year before ultimately ending operations. Will do more research on this ASAP.
