  • Vringo Rated As Rotten: The Company Shows Why You Don't Speculate On "Patent Trolls" [View article]
    Gee, in a situation like this, where VRNG has won everything over the last couple of years and forced GOOG into a corner where there was no way out and were left with few options accept to concede and pay VRNG, sure makes me think that someone was given a good junk of change to vote in GOOG's favor. (My opinion and I can have an opinion in the USA, right?)

    The USPTO who validated the patent's is trumped by a few judges? How can that happen? These judges sure have a lot of power and I can't help but think that something is rotten in Denmark or California or Virgina or in the USA. Haaaha

  • CombiMatrix: A Turnaround Story For 2014 [View article]
    Hi Keith, appreciate the write up. Good stuff. It's going to take awhile for people to realize all the good things that CBMX has done and is doing. Won't be long though, patience.

  • Shares Of Vringo Jump 22% After Work-Around Ruling: Are You Capitalizing On This Big Opportunity? [View article]
    It certainly would behoove GOOG to buy Vringo if they can. They'd get all the patents and wouldn't have to worry about VRNG any more. Of course, VRNG might not want to sell, but who knows. Given enough money, they just might make a deal. It's all good though, really want the 7% running royalty.

  • Vringo Wins Key Victory Over Google Revenue; Awaits 7% Royalty Decision [View article]
    It seems more and more plausible that some rival company like MSFT for example, would benefit greatly if they decided to "buy out" VRNG. MSFT has ties with NOK and if GOOG got VRNG's patents, wouldn't it be detrimental to MSFT? Couldn't and wouldn't GOOG punish MSFT and other rivals if they got hold of VRNG's patents? I would certainly think so, I think GOOG would use the patents to essentially black mail multiple companies, threatening their very existence.

    john,

    I think you're right. It would have been better had they bought VRNG. But the company who "does no evil" couldn't allow a small company to get the best of them. It was just too much for them to swallow. Arrogance will cost them more.

    Yep, patience and more patience is needed for patent plays. I think it's actually true for most stocks. In my early days of investing, I lost plenty simply because I jumped in and out of particular stocks because I lost patience. Then a few weeks/months later I'd see the stock up zoom up multiple dollars and there I was with egg all over my face, kicking myself. So do your due diligence, when you find a company you like, buy and hold (I know that's not the norm today), when the share price drops or becomes stagnant, don't panic, remind yourself why you bought into the company in the first place. Hold firm. This is a basic stock trading philosophy, but a lot of people don't have the stomach for it.

  • Vringo: Belief And Seeing Are Both Often Wrong [View article]
    enricow, this stupid decision by Congress won't affect the VRNG vs's GOOG case and it'll actually cause more problems. However, GOOG's involvement in this decision may be uncovered or discovered and won't it be interesting if they're found implicit in some political payoff scheme. Do no evil, hmmm?

    Yeah, I hear ya. Glad you made some money elsewhere after selling, but sometimes you've got to stay the course. VRNG will have their day, it's coming and if I sold now, I'd feel even worse. This is when I should have bought or you should have bought, we probably all bought too soon, but I've held my shares for along long time now and I won't give them up without a profit. Of course I didn't sell my house, car or dog, to buy shares of VRNG so I'm not fretting, at least not too much.

    Can we discuss the Dec. 17th ruling by the German court regarding ZTE? It would, by all that I've read, mean a substantial monetary award for VRNG if the German court rules in favor of the NOK patents held by VRNG. That is, that the NOK patents have indeed been violated/infringed upon by ZTE. Does anyone think that ZTE might settle before this date? Can ZTE appeal a German court decision?

    The ZTE/VRNG delay will be interpreted as "good" news and VRNG will advance today, though not more than a dime. Still, any positive news is helpful for VRNG longs.

    My goodness, just neglect the ZTE case altogether and fail to mention the MSFT payments. Your article is baseless and no one looks at VRNG's 10Q because it doesn't matter, the goods are the patents. When VRNG is paid from GOOG, everyone who has shorted this stock will choke. I'm an investor and VRNG is a long term investment just as much as some other stocks are investments. If you're an investor, when you decide to buy into a stock, you have a 3-5 year investment plan. If you're a trader, well then you jump in and out of stocks at will, often losing your, um, behind. I've only been invested in VRNG since Aug. 2012. I will hold until at least Aug. 2015, that's a minimum of three years. That's what investor's do. So give me a break, your article is not about investors, you're looking at it as a trader.
