    Either there’s a misunderstanding, or the analyst is a fraud. Blackberry doesn’t even do antivirus, because they focus on software which is secure by design. Not even their Android DTEK phones have an antivirus, because it’s not needed. I have not even heard of a car getting a virus, and i don’t think they exist even in theory.

      Ya – cause that’s how you grow a business. By just focussing on your current wares. And buddy – how long do you think it’ll be until some ransomeware locks up your car?? Pretty sweet demographic to target don’t you think? Get some ransomeware onto someone’s 6 figure car spells you’re targeting someone with cash to burn…….and you’re interfering with their business appointment or sunday drive. Writing is on the wall buddy. Way more profitable than holding someone’s jpg’s hostage. Good to see the automakers trying to get in front of it.

      He is a fraud and this company is desperately trying to spin the narrative about itself that’s total bunk.

    • Rev0lver

      I disagree with you my old friend. This is a well managed company.

    • Actionable Conclusion

      lmao! Yeah. Well managed like being unable to turn a GAAP profit and where reporting of their overall financials is an utter mess that attempts to play a shell game with numbers to make the bottom line look better than it really is. They have horrendous ROE and ROA and a tiny fraction of the revenue they once had in their glory days. In fact, Chen totally cratered revenue and destroyed the hardware business despite three years of claiming he could turn it around and make it profitable. The software angle is just a reflection of his past failures.

      Oh, and how about the hodgepodge of acquisitions of third rate software companies that can’t turn any meaningful profit/organic growth of its own anyway?

      All this company has become is a patent troll hoping to raise revenue and stash some cash by raiding other companies when it can’t come up with a single original idea of its own. They have NO competitive moat.

      Like I said in an earlier post. You have no idea what you’re talking about.

    • Rev0lver

      I’m sorry but the facts do not support your argument at all fine sir.

    • Actionable Conclusion

      You’re a joke. I really don’t understand how you think you contribute anything here. Mind-boggling.

    • Rev0lver

      Personal attacks are unnecessary old friend. But that doesn’t change the fact that you are incorrect. Sorry.

    And which one will Mister Chen drive? Both? Perhaps neither; only Rolls Royce is good enough for Mister Chen, maybe. And verily he would deserve it. He is a giant among men, is he not….?

      The company?

    • Beautiful Blessings

      Ka…………………………………..BOOM.

  • Actionable Conclusion

    Papageourgiou is a well known shill for this company and talk of $13.60 per vehicle sounds like the kind of hype these guys are peddling in the hopes it’ll replace SAF revenues.
    He’s doing nothing but trying to keep the momentum going because truly the stock has topped out and hasn’t got much gas left to drive it higher.

    • Rev0lver

      You are factually incorrect sir.

    • Actionable Conclusion

      You clearly have no idea what you’re talking about and really should just give it a rest okay?

    • Rev0lver

      I’m sorry but I must point​out when someone makes an argument that is not based on hard facts. And the facts do not support your point of view friend.

    • Actionable Conclusion

      Yeah. Take a look at Papa’s past predictions and analysis and see how idiotic he is. Do your homework before flapping your gums.

    • Rev0lver

      Perhaps you should do your homework friend. The facts do not support your argument at all sir.

    • Actionable Conclusion

      Another classic, original vacuous comment from you. Waste of time engaging you. Please stop replying to my posts.

    • Rev0lver

      Sir, I cannot stop as you continue to make false statements that I must point out. Sorry old friend.

    • Beautiful Blessings

      Ah! T’is a beautiful blessing, the friendship, is it not?
      You two remind me of my daily world-play with the prophets on the steps of the temple; how we laughed….how we cried.
      How I pushed them down the steps with daggers in their backs….what japes!
