Stock price starting to discount tomorrows announcement on EU decision to possibly start watermarking plastics to make recycling more efficient. New high today.

And then you have short interest to be reported Friday after the close and Digimarc hosting a business update presentation next Wednesday. Lordy the ingredients are all there for the Roman candle shot of the year.

Free money. Or you could try to trade the market by calling daily moves like all the gurus on SI. What an exercise in futility.

DMRC managed a small gain today. Company will host bullish business update presentation Wednesday May 29 at 1 pm. That leaves 2 1/2 days to trade. Short interest will be published tomorrow after the close which will not show much change but still might act as an upside catalyst when market reopens Tuesday morning.

Still time to hop on board. Outside chance we get a high volume buying climax next week. Long term story remains intact.

My my. Target raised to 75 from 42.

Digimarc price target raised to $75 from $42 at Craig-Hallum Craig-Hallum analyst Jeff Van Rhee raised his price target on Digimarc to $75 from $42, noting that he believes the 3-page "Holy Grail" report, detailing a consortium of industry leaders' push for a European centric, industrywide solution to recycling, was presented yesterday at the bi-annual New Plastics Economy workshop. He continues to believe the conclusion of the report will be "highly favorable" toward the use of Digimarc technology. Van Rhee believes momentum is picking up on both the retailer and Consumer Packed Goods makers' sides of the equation and his increased price target reflects some of the incremental conviction he has as a result of additional field work, he tells investors. He keeps a Buy rating on Digimarc shares.

Looks like Digimarc will be watermarking plastic recyclables. Business update Wednesday at 1 pm.

Who cares? No one on SI as most only indulge in the futile exercise of attempting to call the market on a short term basis. Gotta be in the right stocks to make money. That's what it's all about.

It is holding up quite well Roger, and yes timing is everything. You very well might be spot on. Just a note. I once thought PLA poly lactic acid was going to be big in plastics. Corn into plastics - With names like Dow -Dupont and ADM involved it was worth watching. Seeming the big names have given up. I personally thought the technology could be explored to printing on this plastic substrate. This given the plastic would degrade a a fairly fast pace over time in water and landfills. However due to possible problems unbeknownst to me the technology wasn't progressed like I though it would be. Maybe with technological improvements in the process it's still possible?

I don't have an answer for that. Hope you can listen to the business update Wednesday and if not then, there should be a transcript available afterwards. They should discuss prospects for plastics recycling. I would be interested in your thoughts.

oldie- RE-plastic waste

EU moves to ban single-use plastics.

BRUSSELS (Reuters) - The European Commission on Monday proposed banning single-use plastic products such as cotton buds and plastic straws and putting the burden of cleaning up waste on manufacturers in an effort to reduce marine litter.

Under the proposal, single-use plastic products with readily available alternatives will be banned and replaced with more environmentally sustainable materials.

The proposal also requires EU countries to collect 90 percent of single-use plastic drink bottles by 2025 and producers to help cover costs of waste management and clean-up.

“Plastic waste is undeniably a big issue and Europeans need to act together to tackle this problem, because plastic waste ends up in our air, our soil, our oceans, and in our food,” said EU Commission Vice President Frans Timmermans.

Plastic accumulating in the world’s oceans has become a major policy issue for governments, with scientists warning of their effect on the food chain.

Research published in the online journal Scientific Reports estimates a garbage patch of some 79,000 metric tonnes - 1.8 trillion pieces - of plastic has formed in the Pacific Ocean, mainly consisting of fishing nets, plastic containers, packaging and ropes.

Earlier this year, Britain also said it planned to ban the sale of plastic straws and other single-use products.

The Commission proposal will still need to be approved by the European Parliament and Council, and the Commission said it hoped for it to be given the green light before the European elections in May 2019.

Interesting. With DMRC moving up on anticipation of a good news business update, undoubtedly some profit taking is likely. Then we can discuss and wait until things settle down.

Digimarc Barcode Scores High on Recycling



PR NewswireMay 29, 2019

Pioneer Project HolyGrail reveals promising results for the use of digital watermarking technology to reduce plastic waste in the environment

BEAVERTON, Ore., May 29, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Digimarc Corporation ( DMRC), inventor of the Intuitive Computing Platform (ICP™), has recently completed its participation in Pioneer Project HolyGrail initiated by the Ellen MacArthur Foundation's New Plastics Economy. Digimarc Barcode was shown in testing to overcome many current limitations in plastic sorting technology, making it easier to accurately identify plastics that qualify for recycling and prevent their unnecessary disposal into landfills or incinerators.



Digimarc The Barcode of Everything(TM)

Pioneer Project HolyGrail was a three-year initiative and full-value chain collaboration project led by Procter & Gamble with 29 participating partners, including consumer brands L'Oreal, Danone, Nestlé, PepsiCo, Henkel and retailer Carrefour. In a published report, the tests show that Digimarc Barcode, by turning plastic containers into "intelligent objects," could accomplish sorting techniques that have been impossible for the industry to achieve. By accurately distinguishing between food-grade versus non-food grade containers, Digimarc Barcode addresses one of the industry's greatest unmet challenges to date, and could have a major impact on developments in recycling in the near future. In addition, it identifies flexible packaging, carbon-black packaging, the composition of plastic types in multi-layers and detects the proper separation and sorting of full-body shrink-sleeved containers.

Digimarc Barcode provides a unique, scannable 3D identity when applied in plastic substrates. The dataset carried by the code can convey a wide range of attributes, including the waste item's manufacturer, product SKU, and manufacturing facility. Digimarc Barcode automatically instructs sorting mechanisms to separate the plastic waste for higher quality and quantity of recyclable materials, helping to ensure that manufacturers can meet their public commitments for use of recycled content and to comply with government mandates. The scanning capability can also be retrofitted into existing sorting facilities upon commercialization.

Digimarc Barcode can also be applied to shrink sleeves and paper labels providing opportunities for increasing the likelihood of identification and the amount of data that can be obtained. The multiple layer enhancement supports many other efficiencies in manufacturing, supply chain, retail operations and consumer engagement. Digimarc Barcode can provide a broader role in the Circular Economy, for instance, allowing environmentally-conscious consumers to scan products with smartphones to learn how to properly separate plastic objects in conformity with their curbside waste service provider.

"Digimarc Barcode is unique because it creates 'intelligent objects' that provide 'hyper sorting' in recycling facilities," said Larry Logan, Chief Evangelist, Digimarc. "The HolyGrail test results demonstrate a viable path towards much greater plastics recycling, leading to reduced waste, and validates our engagement with the Ellen MacArthur Foundation's New Plastics Economy Global Commitment. It's gratifying to see how these capabilities can be readily applied for social good in support of a Circular Economy for plastics."

The Global Commitment aims to build a Circular Economy for plastics by bringing together key stakeholders to rethink and redesign the future of plastics, which Digimarc signed in April 2019. Larry Logan will be presenting the company's approach to plastics recycling and how it can help reduce plastic waste in oceans and landfills at two upcoming conferences – June 4 at 10:20am EDT at the Active & Intelligent Packaging Summit Americas in Jersey City, New Jersey, and on June 18 at 11:50am CEST he will be co-presenting with Procter & Gamble's Gian de Belder at Plastics Recycling Technology in Dusseldorf, Germany.

Watch a brief video featuring Gian de Belder, Project Leader, Pioneer Project HolyGrail.

The inevitable profit taking today as I mentioned Tuesday. Nothing really that new in business update other then they raised $13 million of the $30 million shelf they filed. It was an "at the market" offering and shares were sold in 7 days at an average price of 63. Nothing like a $10 discount to that price! Like shopping at Dollar General. LOL!

Of course raising capital this way precludes the dreaded secondary.
