Hey Dino LEDS is a great all year trading stock.
yeah and I had my trigger too high to enjoy all the other ripples...
Too bad i didnt buy again under 2.00. I was afraid to go back to the well.
UVC LEDS are likely to be a coronavirus play... UV disinfectant angle.
XianChang Ma purchased 150,000 common shares of the company for $600,000, or $4.00 per share.
The transaction is expected to close in February.
The shares purchased represents about 4.17% of SemiLEDS' outstanding shares.
Now 13D Trung Doan owns 14.2%, so about 500K +/-...
I'd be interested...
Too bad i got out 2.81 on friday...lol. could have got an extra $1100. oh well. W iz a W.
this morning 2.40 lo 3.23 hi
Out 2.81 from my 2.23 swing.

Great!! This will move up soon. GL
Time to get a few .... maybe takes some time but I get em here and there
Time to collect imo
Very positive news and this drops like a rock lol.. Manipulation to get cheap shares??
Yep, float here is aamazing.
Shorts working the bid/ask
Now it does like 40 minutes later lol.
Strange. Shorts on ask trying to scare people w/ a 10k share lot lmfao...
850k float institutions will eat this up today i would imagine w/ earnings beat ! And chart is setup for a big pop
Lets see what happens at open
Grabbed some here but volume is not showing my buy.. same with etrade.
850k Float+ big Earnings Out A/H very nice last time they released earnings gap to 9$
Released a/h institutions havent got there chance to buy in yet wait till open market!
Also did u read there recent pre 4c ** There Trying to reduce there authorized shares **Approve the amendment of the restated certificate of incorporation, as amended, to reduce the number of authorized common stock from 75,000,000 to 7,500,000

SemiLEDs chips also feature:
Quality by Design
The advantages of the patented and proprietary MvpLED™ design especially in Thermal management, and Optical efficacy, are realized in light quality, lifetime, color consistency, reliability and overall efficiency of the luminaire. Available in Blue, Green and Ultraviolet (UV), SemiLEDs high efficiency chips bring real benefits to any lamp or luminaire manufacturer.
Among pure metals at room temperature, copper has the second highest electrical and thermal conductivity after silver. Furthermore, due to the high thermal conductivity of the copper alloy layer, the heat generated in our device is effectively conducted. This is a major advantage for any lamp or luminaire manufacturer. No matter how good a thermal design is if the contact material to the junction is a poor conductor then the cooling effects of the heat-sink are significantly reduced.
Most LEDs are built on Sapphire wafers. On average, more than 200 kWh of electricity are spent on making a 2 inch Sapphire wafer; a significant environmental burden.
Other manufacturers dice the LEDs without removing the Sapphire. Sapphire is a less effective conductor of heat acting as a bottleneck for heat transfer from the junction to the heat-sink. The Sapphire wafer is also lost.
SemiLEDs' patented and unique process consumes no Sapphire, significantly reducing the Carbon footprint. The lack of Sapphire also removes a thermal management bottleneck while providing the most environmentally friendly LED on the market.
Reliability and consistency are extremely important characteristics of an LED. Any designer looking to design an LED into a lighting system should consider not only how the LED will perform on hour 1 but also on hour 1k, 10k and 100k.
It is evident that most LED deterioration is due to poor thermal management. Excessive heat at the junction can damage the crystal quality, the bond pads, and even alter the chemistry of a Phosphor or an encapsulant material thus making it less transparent. As a general rule of thumb, the more efficiently you can drive heat away from an LED, the more consistent and more reliable your lighting system will be.
SemiLEDs patented MvpLEDTM design maximizes the efficacy of any thermal management system by maximizing the heat transfer rate from the junction to the LED package. Many thermal designs are very good however if the material on which the LED structure is built is a poor conductor of heat, such as Sapphire or Silicon, then the overall efficacy of the system is in question. SemiLEDs uses copper alloy, an excellent conductor of heat, thus eliminating the bottleneck effect.
The effects of SemiLEDs efficient Copper alloy devices can be felt in the lifetime and light quality of packaged chips producing white light. Packages using SemiLEDs LEDs, as opposed to conventional Sapphire LEDs, maintain initial CCT values over time. Packages using Sapphire LEDs experienced a CCT shift of more than 20% towards the blue end of the spectrum, while packages using SemiLEDs LEDs only experienced a CCT shift of 2%. This is due to the heat effects on the phosphor chemistry.
