The second half of the game (7 Ratings) 46 minutes ago SINCE FEBRUARY 2007 THEY HAVE SHORTED ONE MILLION ONE HUNDRED SIXTY-ONE THOUSAND SEVEN HUNDRED TWENTY-FOUR (1,161,724) AT AN AVERAGE PRICE OF 11.49.

They are FINALLY in the money (barely) for the second half.

Now do you think they want to LOWER their average cost and have THAT much more to cover next year when this thing will BLOW!?!?!

Think on these things.

Sentiment : Strong Buy

Shorts expect that REFR is headed to $0, which IMO is substantially more than its worth.

I'd short this at a buck.

43 years without an arms-length product sale.

About 200 press releases containing a plethora of outright lies, material misrepresentations and dare I say "fraud"?

Not a single verification of so-called SPD properties by an independent certified laboratory.

Supposed "first sales" of products scheduled for 1991, 1993, and in 1996 a press release stating that "products to appear in the near future".

Company announced in 2002 it "expected" to be profitable in 2003. End result for 2003, not a single verified product sale...as usual.

A failed, or an investor rip-off, of $7,000,000 for a supposed SPD plant that to this day has only been verified by pictures of a building in Korea that had a sign, in ENGLISH, saying it was used for production of SPD. And known sales of products from that plant totaling -0-.

Buyback programs announced that management who immediately sold stock rather than buying back stock as per PR.

Management selling directly into fluff press releases and conference call.

Supposed distributors for the product that seemingly worked from their garage.

And then there's you Nancy who claimed in a post in 2004 that you had ordered a 2005 auto with SPD windows. Where is that, eh?

REFR and their shills are a pack of lies. REFR will soon be trading back in the single digits and I expect it to be under a dollar....soon.

Update on the REFR stock fraud

In years past, and usually during the "dump" phase of REFR's numerous pump-and-dump schemes, I would usually post a note explaining to new investor-victims exactly how they were defrauded, and the fact that Robert Saxe and Joe Harary have been engaged in this criminal enterprise for a long, long time.

This time around I really have no sympathy for the victims. Anyone idiotic enough to pay near $200 million for a concern with a thoroughly documented history of stock fraud, which has produced no earnings (much less verifiable arms-length sales) going on close to half a century, deserves to lose every penny - and then some.

Welcome back Bill!

You don't still claim that the film doesn't exist, do you? Lot's of people have now seen the film (myself included). Not many have seen an products though (myself not included).

So if there is film, how can you call the company a fraud? Still to be determined how well it can sell but that's a whole different story.

You don't still beat your wife, do you?

Now really, isn't that just about the silliest comment that gets made about this company? Since when is "nonexistent product" the only kind of corporate fraud in the world?

Kevin - are you Wexler?

Unfortunately, all predictions - as stupid as they may have been - are made under the safe harbor act. But if you choose to file a class action lawsuit against against the company for being over exuberant to the point of financial fraud, I might sign on.

I'm surprised at how often I get asked that.

if you choose to file a class action lawsuit

Even if I believed in that as a viable course of action (hint: REFR could be easily bled dry by management long before such a suit got to court), I don't personally have any damages to claim. Not from REFR itself at any rate.

Kevin - save me the trouble of going through your old posts.

Do you believe that the growing list of large companies announcing something to do with SPD are all being paid by RFI to develop the emulsion, film and products, put them in a bus at an auto show (and highlight it - not like the Jeep from a few years ago), go to the trade shows etc.

All that does cost some significant money and as you point out, they really don't have that much.

Until these last couple years (since the presentation by Hitachi and DIC at the annual meeting, you're arguments had much more of a basis.

Oh, please do. I've made enough of them, and there aren't 1% of them I'm not proud of in hindsight. How many bulls can say that? In fact, I find the easiest way to get a REFR bull angry is to bring up old posts.

Do you believe that the growing list of large companies announcing something to do with SPD

What "growing list"? That little Houston company is the first new licensee in quite a long time.

are all being paid by RFI to develop the emulsion, film and products, put them in a bus at an auto show

I don't know how much, if any, of that was subsidized by REFR. Then again, there's hasn't exactly been much "developing" that I can see; the "new" film has been known about as far back as the message boards go. As for the bus, it's not like Hino wasn't putting together concept buses anyway, so the incremental cost of installing SPD on half the windows of one bus is pretty minor relative to the overall budget.

(and highlight it - not like the Jeep from a few years ago), go to the trade shows etc.

By "highlight" you mean "mention", I think. As I recall, the windows were like the seventh thing mentioned in Hino's writeup of the bus that contained them. And even then they called them "photochromatic" like they didn't even understand what they were working with.

Similarly, is there any reason to think AGP wasn't already a regular exhibitor at Sema?

Until these last couple years (since the presentation by Hitachi and DIC at the annual meeting, you're arguments had much more of a basis.

I see, and how many SPD products have been sold over the course of the two-plus years since that landmark presentation? Yeah, that's what I thought. The only thing that gave that whole argument credibility was the boom in the share price, and now that's going away at a rate that's even surprising me.
