  • Vringo Vs. Google: The Sky's Not Falling [View article]
    I understand some people are trying to be civil but Dan is simply sad imo. If you have no interest in a company and know for a positive fact they will lose, why write articles about them and spend time in the comments section? He obviously has ulterior motives. His opinions have no credence on my investment what so ever. His blatant lies and lack of information makes things pretty evident to me.

  • Vringo Vs. Google: The Sky's Not Falling [View article]
    If the judge posed the question to the jury of what the running royalty rate should be, and they awarded the maximum rate possible of 3.5%, it would behoove Judge Jackson to change that rate. The jury set a certain lump sum amount based on their royalty rate decision. What I feel the Judge is left to decide is what amount of 3.5% does Vringo get awarded. Of course the appeal process will take place but we need a final verdict first and that will certainly be a catalyst for the stock price...huge in fact. Dan is just trying to get it as low as possible before it reaches that point.

    Great article as usual Mr. Kim. I enjoyed reading!

  • Apple: What Is The Market Telling Us About iPhone Unit Sales? [View article]
    The thing that most people don't understand about the iphone and android devices is APPL doesn't have some of these so called 'features' for good reason. 74% of Android devices have malware. That's the biggest problem that will begin to show. My iPhone 5 screen is perfect for me. The main factor of battery life in any device is the screen. I had an evo4g and galaxy2, both lasted through half my day at work and would shut off or be around 10% battery percentage by the time I got home. LOL to that. I'm not trying to carry a charger with me all day. A cell phone should at least make it through your day of work without having to be constantly charged. The 20 apps android runs in the background, which is another "great feature" kills battery life and uses up valuable RAM. Android is a joke. It's for people that have a complex and need to hate Apple. It happens ALL the time with sports teams. Win too much and people get jealous. Outcast people that feel they are need to hate the popular. Get self esteem! Don't get me started on the comparison in applications. The quality of iPhone apps destroys the generic android versions. Android phones would be good if the iPhone never existed. I would rather use an old 3GS then be forced to use a new Samsung Galaxy. Why do people switch to Mac computer and why are the numbers on the rise? It's the integration and most importantly the user experience...(i)OS(X). People don't hate windows because its popular, they hate it because its a pos compared to new emerging operating systems. Apple and their stock will be fine. PLEASE everyone panic and sell it! It will be like an early Christmas.

  • Why You Should Short Vringo Above $4 [View article]
    Bush tax cuts are ending at the end of this year. Anyone claiming over $250k will pay FAR more in taxes. That is the reason for the selloffs. Do you really think they are raking in the dough off selling less than 2% of their shares. This is a lame article. Do some research

  • Why You Should Short Vringo Above $4 [View article]
    The sale of shares are most likely due to the change in business taxes taking place next year. Owners NEED to sell before the end of the year to avoid paying a larger sum in taxes. Insiders still own a VERY large % of shares. The amount they have sold so far are almost negligible in comparison

  • Vringo Vs. Google: What Will Follow The Jury's Verdict [View article]
    another part is predicting the outcome of a court case. Which you have been wrong about ALLLLLLLLLL along. Why do you hide? If you were really trying to help people invest, you wouldn't be scared to show who you really are. You would also get more followers by not being so shady.

    You've lost money on VRNG all along and are still trying to cover

  • The Vringo Vs. Google Verdict: Did Vringo Investors Win As Well? [View article]
    No matter what math you use AOL does not come close to earning half of what Google makes. Revenue for AOL in 2011 was $2.2B, Google's was $37.905B, and AOL owes half of what Google owes? On top of that AOL's revenue is not derived of 96% adword sales. Even if it were 100% from adwords they would not come close to making half of what Google makes. There is going to be a big announcement by the judge that is going to render this article irrelevant and cause the stock the jump. Whats the better explanation? your as usual vague response is so funny. You are the WORST debater possible. It's like a child crying they didn't get the right color lollipop.

  • Vringo (VRNG) has won its patent suit against Google (GOOG). The company has been awarded $30M in damages and a royalty on Google search ad revenue through 2016, when Vringo's patent expires - some reports indicate the royalty rate is 3.5%. Google will almost certainly appeal. Vringo shares remain halted. [View news story]
    Trading halted. Anybody have an idea when it will continue? I bought more at 4.25 but am waiting for VRGN to open back up to trading to see if I got it at that price. I've been in for awhile so I got it at a much better price but I couldn't resist buying again with the actual news of them winning being released.

  • Potential Long-Term Value Of Vringo Is $100 A Share [View article]
    I don't think it will ever reach $100, but, one good thing about Google being "so large". The jury will be more inclined to award a larger than usual sum if Vringo wins. Look at Apple vs. Samsung, the amount of the ruling was extremely large because of the revenue made by Samsung and they are such a large company now because of it. If I were Vringo that is one tool I would utilize. Sure I didn't enter the search engine market, I didn't have the appropriate funds at the time and while I was raising the funds the idea was stolen and implemented by Google, which at that time had proper funding. That is a huge point imo! I'm long Vringo and after all I've read I do have some faith in a positive outcome. The next article's I'm hoping to see is "How high can Vringo go?"

  • Vringo Upside Overstated, Risks Understated [View article]
    Poor guy. Every new article by this anonymous writer the stretch goes further and further and it's more evident he has other motives. This poorly written few paragraphs suggests Microsoft is the only company that is considering a buyout. If this were written from a non biased view there would be many more companies in the mix. Stating Vringo is worth $0 with a loss is probably the dumbest thing I've read on SA, congrats for that accomplishment I guess. Anonymous people with pathetically written articles should not be allowed on SA. You degrade the community.

  • Vringo Vs. Google: Judge Jackson Strikes And Limits Google's Expert Testimony [View article]
    Thanks again Mr. Kim!! If I were Google I would wait to make a settlement offer until all pre trials have taken place which seems like is happening here. Now that Google has tried all they can and have gotten denied, they can work on some good settlement numbers this weekend and make an offer by Monday. After such a dramatic win in this aspect of the case, Vringo is in a very good position to get MUCH more than Google really wanted to pay.

  • Is Google Ready For Settlement Before Trial Period. [View instapost]
    I think this is the reason Google insisted on getting "correct" damage numbers. They want to settle but not at the amount Vringo claimed before. IMO, even at this price if you are looking to AT least double your money then buy now. I just bought a couple more shares. I've been long for a while now and luckily got in at a much better price than what it's at today but I really don't see it going down much below this. As of now they are fairly valued at around $4.60 until the hearing or settlement. Market sediment doesn't care for fair at times but unless there's some dramatic change in events Vringo is in a very nice place. Good luck to all!
    PS> Apple is a good buy right now also, I have a good feeling they are purposely generating a 'strain' so they can blow predictions out of the water. They announce earnings in a couple weeks.

  • What Is Behind Vringo's Lawsuit Against ZTE? [View article]
    I think the timing for the ZTE lawsuit was strategically placed to align with Google's settlement. With the recently raised 45M it brought their value 55M, but with the Nokia portfolio they can show they will be making a lot more money and request A LOT more from Google. I don't think Google will like what the Vringo lawyers will be requesting today, it's going to be a very large number and they have the potential to justify it. This may essentially force a court judgment, whatever the outcome Vringo has positioned itself perfectly to fight this battle, only time will tell. Maybe when this lawsuits over the word 'Vringo' won't get caught when you do a spell check, the same as 'Google' doesn't.
