This 33-year chart of REFR teaches a valuable lesson—the fact that a company has little or no chance of scaling up its technology does not mean a quick trip to zero.
I am amazed at how many zombies I see still standing. PRKR stands out. One of the apparent inefficiencies of capitalism is when the stock market is up (“excessive exuberance”) any half-assed idea will get funded. When I sit in on early stage funding requests now, i feel a sense of, “I’ve seen this before” from the Dot-Com boom 20 years ago, when anyone that could “fog up a mirror” got funded. What a waste of resources. What does work about capitalism is the pendulum always swings back to correct inefficient uses of capital.
