Right now I would say .14 is on speculation, .20 on patent values and .04 on hype. In between you have some long term impatient, disgruntled and or patient share holders who are waiting for a break along with insiders.
I for one have tripled my holdings using speculation, experience and knowledge that there is a niche for the new materials markets. There is also competition and a sad fact that too many exclusive license agreements have weighted down this company's income potential.
There is no quick fix for LQMT 's income. Consumers and industry are the ones that will determine the need and price rise, not hype. There will always be hype in every equity. Not increased revenue. Hence LQMT trades as a micro small cap. And hence many of the large cap companies also fall from the sky. SSYS is one and many here know of many others.
