  • Is there life in the Nano Patch page 2
          I am posting this because this field is a emerging technology which may give readers a good opportunity for growth potential. Nanotechnologies include Carbon Nanotubes and graphene which display extraordinary electromagnetic properties for organic materials. These materials provide immense potential in electronic applications ranging from sensor technology to organic LED applications including semiconductors, micro circuitry and flexible displays which may be exponentially faster than silicon applications.
         Nanocoatings are being used to improve durability and efficiency in industrial processes and advanced electronics applications. Stocks discussed in the previous Nano Patch (OTCQB:ACTC) (NASDAQ:AMSC) (NASDAQ:ROSG) (OTCPK:TOSYY) (NYSEARCA:PXN) (NYSE:RTN) (NASDAQ:ALTI) (OTCPK:INTK) (NYSEMKT:NNVC)

  • Is there life in the Nanopatch?
         I am posting this because this field is a emerging technology which may give readers a good opportunity for growth potential. I have distilled this information from a list of 78 nanotech players provided by (IDTechex.com) and other sources.
         Nanotechnologies include Carbon Nanotubes and graphene which display extraordinary electromagnetic properties for organic materials. These materials provide immense potential in electronic applications ranging from sensor technology to organic LED applications including semiconductors, micro circuitry and flexible displays which may be exponentially faster than silicon applications.
         Nanocoatings are being used to improve durability and efficiency in industrial processes and advanced electronics applications.
         The following are the players in this field excluding universities, private firms and companies not traded on U.S. Exchanges. More information will be added as it becomes available and by those who wish to participate in this investment theme. 
         Applied Nanotech Holdings (OTCQB:APNT) recently @$0.21 EPS $-0.02 52 week high $0.36, 52 week low $0.19 shares outstanding (NYSE:MIL) 107,473,000. Market Cap (MIL) 22,569,330.

Which develops proprietary carbon nanotube and related technologies. Electronic Billboard Technology, INC. Which develops and markets sun readable display products for out door use.  The company is engaged in developing technologies that fall into five technology platforms: Sensory technology, Nanoelectronics, Electron emissions, Nano displays and functional nanomaterials. The company incurs overhead not associated with any specific subsidiary or segment and intends to license it's products to others allowing them to manufacture products using their technologies and products. This technology will be subject to extensive government regulation both here and abroad. Applied Nanotech holdings

         Hodogaya Chemical CO. LTD. Based in Japan (HCHCF) recent $2.50 52 Week high $2.52 52 Week low $1.29. Engages in the manufacture of fine chemicals, functional materials, basic chemicals, agricultural chemicals, food additives/ colorings and electroluminescent products. The companies revenue streams include production of a wide variety of polymer functional and construction materials and foundry materials. Other revenue is generated through transportation management of it's products design and manufacture of construction and manufacturing systems. The company has unassigned overhead stemming from R&D costs and consignments. Little information is readily available more DD will be required. 
            Nano Super Lattice INK. (OTC:NSLT) Recent $0.01 52 Week high $0.06 52 Week low $0.01. Shares outstanding. 34.5 Mil, market Cap 348.5K. Avg volume 21.9K. A whole sale dealer of computer parts and peripherals, consumer electronics and high speed communications cables based in Taiwan. The company is also engaged in development and production of nanoscale coating technologies for an array of mechanical tools and other metal surfaces. The core technology is designed to improve durability and reduce the friction coefficient of various cutting tools and molds. Called Superlattice Arc Bonding and Sputtering Systems it combines multiple nanoscale layers of coating metals bonded to steel tools to produce the desired effects. Coating metals include nickel, zinc and aluminum. Little information is readily available.
         International Business Machines (NYSE:IBM) I don't think this company needs any introduction if you don't own it their Nanotechnology group won't induce you to buy it.   


    Disclosure: I don't own any of the stocks mentioned.
