  • Vringo Shares Are Worth More Than Current Market Price  [View article]
    Can anyone tell me if the company has received payment from the ZTE settlement? Going by the Jan 19th press release, they say they have 27 million in cash and are awaiting court deposits before the end of Q-1 2016. Not sure if this includes the ZTE settlement monies.

  • Two Harbors underearns dividend again  [View news story]
    Management is doing the best it can, with rates going up, sitting on your hands is the wrong approach. That's why they call it a hybrid REIT. The buybacks partially offset the decline in share price, but dividend is still quite good.

  • Vringo settles with ZTE, receives $21.5M payment (updated)  [View news story]
    Reading all these posts has my head spinning. It's amazing how psychology works. We believe what we want to hear or believe. Until we get more detailed answers from a company pr, I for one just accept the 21million as the final number. It is delusional to assume anything else. Hopefully, there will be more settlements coming soon but consider the climate for NPE's in Washington, relations with the Chinese in general and it's amazing we got a settlement at all IMHO. And no one has mentioned what vrngmaxpain predicted the amount would be ? Was it not 20 million? Let's all get real and be hopeful going forward, but as The Who said: we don't get fooled again!

  • Vringo: An Acquisition And Legal Update  [View article]
    Not sure why "not shortable", but likely due to delisting situation and /or no shares available for shorting. With the float being held by either trapped longs or shorts doing their best to drive V to zero, is it any wonder really? BTW, I am long and consider myself trapped! But it does look like there is hope for the future after the dust settles someday.

  • This Mortgage REIT Is Hedging Interest Rates With Creativity  [View article]
    Very astute and detailed analysis of TWO. Have been a holder for a few years and agree they are very clear and transparent when it comes to what they are doing. Being a hybrid Mreit makes a lot of sense to me. I also like the idea of NLY being added to the mix to reduce risk. Please write another piece in the future!

    Monday June 1st= 10 days above $1.00. The delisting should expire today, and hopefully bring in new capital? Grow but don't grow too fast or else....

    MP- monitor the put call activity on the Mar 20 options. You will see the put volume controls the price swings/drop. The calls (buys), are taking a back seat so to speak. Until those who manipulate this cash out , it will probably continue. Think longer term.

    Options trading for mar 20, $25. puts and $30. calls provide lots of volatility. Based on this, expect wide swings IMO.

  • 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.

  • Update: Vringo Post En Banc  [View article]
    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
