You are right, they should not have published that "collaboration" in the news at all. They do make silly mistake in news such the one X27RAY pointed out: "production in QMA in Q3, 2016". How could there be production while the production facility did not even exist? It is only a "collaboration" with FF, not a "business contract", so erase that elusive and uncertain "deal" in your mind, now and forever.
Investors have already ignore such "collaboration", else they would be emailing and phoning Stephen about it, the decline in share price has nothing to that matter, it was due to short term investors running out of patience waiting. They want quick profit but they do not realize QMC's operation is a long term project, QD application products take as long as 20 years to develop. But patient long investors will harvest big in their patience. Mark my words, if Stephen announce the "collaboration" with FF is over and dead, share price will even surge as investors do not like uncertainty overhanging them. I believe no investor even care about if FF exists or not, only you do.
