profitability. It's not years away anymore.

When has it ever been "years away", except in hindsight?

Seriously, Nancy. Name me just one REFR conference call, in the past 20 years, that left you with the impression of "profitability is at least 24 months away".

Near term is the new "soon." We know how that all worked out, although maybe it's different this time around. We'll have to wait and see once again.

Soon went on for years, then, it turned into "sooooooooon."
Then came "expecting" and making progress," which morphed into "it's up to the licensees to announce."
For many months or maybe a year or so we have "inflection point."
Then comes "near-term."

Get that straight!!!

Whether "this time is different" or (again) not, I just want it noted how disingenuous that "anymore" part was.

Really, can anyone believe or want to wait the "near-term" two more years or so? It is hard to fathom the loyalty of some of the poor investors who have waited so long. It's probably figured that the loss would be too great to take both monetarily and psychologically.

Given comments about electric car, this is interesting.

End of the week update

The current spread is $39979, advantage pocci

Sadly, even the pocci portfolio is about 5K underwater.

Still, it is a much better performer than REFR.

The REFR portfolio has lost almost 45K!

REFR has not declared any dividends, if any one is wondering.

Kind of a bummer for what is supposed to be a royalty collecting/dividend paying machine.

Will the spread exceed 40K next week? Will REFR even exist a year from now?

Tune in right here for the answer, and don't touch that dial!

Craig hallum downgraded research frontiers today from a buy to a hold. Gee, thanks for downgrading after 40% decline this year!
