  • Uni-Pixel: Independent Market Analysis Suggests Ben Wiley Has Axe To Grind [View article]
    Sheesh Chris, if pahrah were "bashing" don't you think he'd come up with something with a little more meat on it.

    pahrah is absolutely correct! When I "click here" below where it says Press Releases near the bottom of the Investors page on the website I get the Yahoo page which shows SEEKING ALPHA articles as the FIRST THREE LINKS!

    Nothing bashing about it. It's the TRUTH. Stop being so paranoid!

    Rather than attacking the messenger, maybe you should do something productive like alert the company so they can link to actual PRs instead of somewhere that shows Seeking Alpha articles since they obviously are not PRs.

  • Uni-Pixel (UNXL -8.9%) closed with big losses following a critical column yesterday evening from SA's Benjamin Wiley. Wiley argues the addressable market for UniPixel's metal grids (used in touchscreen sensors) is smaller than many think, and that the company would lose money in 2013 even if grabbed 5% of the table/e-reader market and sold its products at a 50% margin.

    Chris is very sensitive to any criticism of his beloved Unipixel. He is married to the stock...till bankruptcy do they part.

  • Uni-Pixel: Independent Market Analysis Suggests Losses For 2013 [View article]
    Chris Hoffman is so clearly a pumper. He's been name dropping that the unnamed OEM is DELL. His desperation to do damage control is so obvious with his immediate responses to anything that might cause this charade to fall apart. Its clear he owns way too much of this stock.

  • Uni-Pixel: Bright Future Promised By Clouding The Gruesome Reality For The Less Informed [View article]
    Why yes. Yes they did on both counts. e.Digital had many "partnerships." Including ones with Texas Instruments and Lucent Technologies. How's this for a PR Headline from 1999?

    "Lucent Teams With eDigital, TI on Secure Rival to MP3"

    And what was the licensing revenue e.Digital derived from teaming up with Lucent and TI? $0

    "Teams with," "Partnering," "Working with", etc. are all basically marketing weasel words. I could say I'm "partnering" with Microsoft after installing Windows on my PC. Does that mean MS has developed something specifically for me? No, of course not. The same goes for TI. They have not and are not developing anything solely for Uni-Pixel. Exactly as katgod says below...Texas Instruments is glad for any company to use their technology, the same way e.Digital used their DSP when they made their prototype mp3 players.

    Oh Chris, you believe in analyst "strong buy" ratings? How how long have you been investing? How did previous analyst "strong buy" ratings work out for you?

    At this juncture, there are simply too many red flags here. My BS detector alarm bells have gone off several times reading the hype surrounding Uni-Pixel. Until actual product is sold and revenues are booked, this company is nothing more than a gamble.

    When e.Digital stock spiked the execs sold several millions in options. Really telling will be if Uni-Pixel execs sell their options or not.

    In a nutshell: DON'T BELIEVE THE HYPE!!

    Disclosure: Currently I have no position in UNXL but I have successfully traded it several times both long and short over the past few weeks.

    Unipixel reminds me of a company called e.Digital. They made mp3 player prototypes in 1999-2000. These prototype deals included licensing options of their "revolutionary" MicroOS to un-named (sound familiar?) "Billion dollar OEMs." MicroOS benefits included "lower power consumption" (sound familiar?) The speculation that they would actually receive this licensing revenue spiked their share price from 6 cents to $23. However, they never actually made a dime from licensing their "technology" and the stock is now trading back down to 14 cents.

    Now I can't say whether Unipixel has the goods or not. But as the author says, they are up against MUCH bigger players in this arena. Just because they are "working to develop" something with an again "unnamed" PC manufacturer doesn't mean squat until it is actually produced and SOLD.

    Bottom-line is, until actual revenue is booked I would be very cautious in believing the hype here.
