Production and sale of virtual reality headsets have reached the multi-million mark this year and new models of these head mounted displays for gaming and entertainment launching soon are stoking Juniper Research’s forecasts that shipments will hit 30 million by 2020. More so for industrial use smart glasses with 10 million shipments this year and one billion units by 2020 predicted by AugmentedReality.Org. Digi-Capital estimates the global market for both wearable computers to be worth $120 billion by 2020.
Digital eyewear and headset  maker Vuzix Corp. (Nasdaq: VUZI) is powering the augmented reality/virtual reality revolution with the rollout of its new video headphone and smart glasses to enterprise customers and app developers. The West Henrietta, New York-headquartered company is producing and shipping this year 10,000 M300 Smart Glasses, the ugraded version of its groundbreaking M100 Smart Glasses.
One company with M300 orders is IT hardware and software seller Bechtle AG. The order will replace the M100s used in its warehouse operation. Also ordering M300s for use by its thousands of technicians is a North American facilities management consortium. Meanwhile, OEMs have show interest and Vuzix is exploring the right partner.

Vuzix M300 & M100

 

Vuzix’s M300 is the CES (Consumer Electronics Show) Innovations 2013 Design and Engineering Award’s Best Technology in the Wireless Handset Accessory category.  Since its commercial launch two years ago, the M100 quickly became a warehousing essential as the wearable smartphone made merchandiser’s work easier and faster. The Android OS-equipped device helps the stockman find where he needs to be in the warehouse and what to pick there. It updates the inventory in real-time as orders are taken from shelves for shipping.
The M100 is also applicable for telemedicine, remote assistance, utilities, manufacturing and other business operations. Lee Co., the largest mechanical contractor in Tennessee, has M100-equipped field technicians that send videos and data to the company’s service support library for sharing with other technicians to complex home service jobs on time and save on man-hours.
The M100’s built-in HD camera can take picture and video and save them in an expandable onboard memory or stream it live. It can link with another Android device via Bluetooth 4.0 and connect to the Internet via Wi-Fi. Integrated GPS, gyroscope and compass systems, lets apps sense the user’s location and the direction and angle of view. The smart glass is controlled by voice command, button press, and gesture.
Meanwhile, the M300 is powered by an Intel Atom processor and has a new design that enhances functionality and wearability.

 

iWear Video Headphones

 

Vuzix also ramped up production of its iWear Video Headphone, which it touts as the  the most advanced mobile entertainment display in the market to date. The iWear’s dual high-definition displays produce a field of view equivalent to a 125” home theater screen viewed from 10 feet away. With HDMI capability, it can be hooked up to a 3D Blu-ray player, tablet, console system, PC, and mobile phones.
It is also 30 times faster than any other gaming HMD with less than one millisecond video delay. Users can watch incredible 2D and 3D video and advanced interactive Virtual Reality and 3D titles. More than 120 games can be played on the headset, including Assassin’s Creed, Call of Duty, Half-Life 2, Halo and MS Flight Simulator.
As customers enjoy enhanced entertainment experience and business owners improve workflow efficiency with the iWear and M300, Vuzix founder, CEO and president Paul Travers looks beyond the technology horizon as far as the potential of the products is concerned. In fact, he envisions smart glasses as replacing the smartphone and PC because of its advantage as a hands-free device.
Vuzix has invested so much in developing, refining, producing and marketing its wearable gadgets. While cost figured more in its Q1 earnings, the company is banking on the competitiveness of its iWear Headphones and M300 Smart Glasses in meeting delivery targets this year and regaining improved cash flow.

GDX (VanEck Global) Company Description

 

http://www.vaneck.com/vaneck-vectors/equity-etfs/gdx/

GDX is a standout among the most prevalent stocks in the Global mining section particularly in gold in NASDAQ.  It is a trade powerhouse with profound essential, auxiliary and subordinates markets. The revenues tracks a list that is more extensive compared to the index of HUI Gold, with enormous portions to the major partners in the business. However, since GDX is constrained to firms exchanged in the US, it misses a portion of the universal trade firms. Likewise, it incorporates mining different valuable metals, so it’s not by any stretch of the imagination constrained in the industry of gold. The trading volume is reasonably valued; however the holding costs have an inclination to be somehow costly. As a worldwide industry, GDX is somewhat short, yet it’s still massively well known.

Since the date of its inception, the stocks of GDX have plunged to 55%.  The dip, however, cannot be attributed to the market demand of Gold but to the cutting cost of the company on the gold miners.  The holding of GDX includes some of the major companies listed in wall-street.com such as AEM, SLW, NCM, FNV, NEM, ABX and GG.

 

The GDX Stock Market Profile

 

GDX is being handled by Van Eck Global, wherein they adjusted their trading volume based on the movements at wall-street.com.  It has a surprisingly low ration on expenses that is only at 0.53%.  In the most recent year, the interest of the public companies on gold has increased because of the concerns associated with market policy.  And proportionate for this heightened interest the stock gains and market demands are also slowly but steadily growing.

GDX can be categorized as a speculative company and is suitable for those investors who are secured about the risk that it presents.  The primary driver of the market price of this company is determined upon the price of gold.  Unfortunately, the accurate determination of the market price of gold and the stocks gains are fairly difficult as it does not have any cash flow.

 

Based on wall-street.com, the price of gold is stable on areas that have financial instability wherein the rate of interest is on a downward trend and the inflations in on the rise.  When the economy is unstable, people tend to lose their confidence in other means of generating money and focus their entire resources on gold which has long been used as an essential money making tool.  Under these conditions, this NASDAQ listed company is in a more favorable position and is highly likely to have stock gains and high market demand.

The GDX has been trading their market shares on NYSE and NASDAQ based on wall-street.com for quite some time now.  It was established last 2006 by the Van Eck Global during the time that the demand on the precious metals is high.

BCYP Stock Market Profile

 

http://wall-street.com/stockquote/?symbol=bcyp
BCYP is creating an impressive stock gains earlier this year on trading volume since it recorded a low $ 0.96 value.  It has been in a constant plunge for a little less than one year.  The increase on the trading volume can be attributed to the Court of Appeals that ruled on their favor last December of 2015.

Last May 16, 2016, BCYP reported their operating result and their financial gains during the first quarter of the year 2016.  According to the report, the revenues have posted a massive increase of 128% that amounts to $263,000 against the $116,000 of revenues posted last 2015.  The increase is derived from the revenue generated from different projects.  But ever since that conference, the market has been harsh with BCYP.  It is as if that the 1st quarter stock gains and the high market demand has done nothing to improve the downward motion of the trading volume of BCYP.

The plunge on the market value can be attributed to the fact that the company is not doing well despite of the claims that the company has posted a significant increase in revenues during the first quarter of 2016.  But BCYP is not a hopeless case as NASDAQ said that it was able to get rid of its convertible debt.  Blue Calypso is doing everything they can in order to mitigate the effect of the damage.  The shares of BCYP have even expanded to more than a million in the recent two months.  It is just disheartening to see that a company that was exerting too much effort to control the damage is seeing little to no effect.  It seems that no amount of boosts can remove the company from its current condition.

BCYP is boasting with a 5 patent that is included in their intellectual property.  They are also awaiting a decision on their 8 patents application that can be used for electronic and communication offers on desktop and mobile services.  Based on wallstreet.com, the management team of this company is laudable; leading the pack would be Bill Ogle who is the CMO of Samsung and Motorolla.  The co-Founder of BCYP, Andrew Levi is already managing a restaurant at the age of 19 and has an experience in working with the Federal Reserve.  Hopefully, the future court ruling, as well as the great management, will produce favorable stock gains, revenues and increase the company’s trading volume.

Penn West Petroleum (NYSE: PWE)

 

The Labor Department reported 287,000 new jobs created in June. To U.S. Secretary of Labor Thomas E. Perez, this means the economy is resilient and strong. To Wall Street, it meant a stocks rally on Friday. For Canadian oil and natural gas producer Penn West Petroleum (NYSE: PWE) though, the oil price downturn challenge remains with crude trading at $45 a barrel. Like other similar companies hit by the protracted oil price downturn, Penn West is struggling and threatened by a debt default and even a delisting from the New York Stock Exchange for not maintaining the required $1 minimum closing price for its common stocks. But the Calgary-based company has other things in mind than throwing in the towel.

http://wall-street.com/stockquote/?symbol=PWE

Penn West is determined to stay afloat until improved oil price appears over the horizon. It complied in June with the NYSE standard for continued listing and staved off a debt default last month by selling $1.3 billion in non-core assets and renegotiating lending agreements with creditors.

Penn West shares should have a minimum average closing price of $1 for 30 consecutive trading days in the NYSE board. Its shares traded at $1.42 on July 8.

Financial Survival Strategy

 

A debt of $1.8 billion at the end of the first quarter sent Penn West shares falling by as much as 25 percent in May. Penn West’s answer was selling oil properties in Saskatchewan for $975 million. The sell-off cut debts to approximately $600 million from $2.1 billion last year. The transaction also cut the company’s interest expenses by nearly $100 million annually and offset the loss in net operating income from the Saskatchewan properties, which has a production of 13,650 barrels of oil equivalent per day (boe/d).

Penn West also sold assets in Alberta for another $140 million. The site produces 3,100 boe/d.

Proceeds from the sales of the two properties will be used to fund Penn West’s more competitive Cardium and Alberta Viking areas, according to president and CEO David Roberts. The funding is projected to increase the company’s annual production by 10 percent in the next 10 years.

For the Cardium area, there are 1,500 locations to be drilled over a 20-year period. Its first quarter production was approximately 19,500 boe/d. Operating cost is at $10/boe with netbacks of $17/boe.

Meanwhile, first quarter production in the Alberta Viking area was approximately 1,000 boe/d. Its 500 potential drilling locations will be the focus of development next year.

Penn West has a third property being co-developed with a joint venture partner: the Peace River area. First quarter net production was approximately 5,000 boe/d with operating costs of $1/boe. The company plans to shell out $5 million to $10 million in the second half to develop the Peace River area.

Penn West will continue to divest other high-cost but non-earning properties by year-end to generate $100 million to $200 million.

Roberts calls Penn West’s survival strategy as “perseverance.” His efforts already cut debts by $2.8 billion over the last three years. With perseverance, he is determined to end the company’s most challenging time in history and open a new chapter of sustainable growth marked by operating costs of $10-$12/boe.

So a creature-catching game app is gluing 21 million Americans to their smartphones daily — beating the 2013 record of Facebook’s candy-matching sensation — to be dubbed as the “biggest mobile game in the U.S.” within only a week from its launch. App stores trackers also claim the new game broke the record as the most installed app on Android smartphones while iPhone users are spending more time on it than on popular social media sites.

The story reminds of FarmVille, the most popular Facebook game from 2009 to 2011 with 10 million daily active users within six weeks of its debut. The farming simulation game may be down the game app ranking today but there is no lost glory for its maker, Zynga Inc. (Nasdaq: ZNGA). More than a billion people have played Zynga games online and on mobile devices, including FarmVilleZynga PokerWords With FriendsHit it Rich! Slots and CSR Racing. The games are as exciting to the San Francisco-based company for driving revenue generation.

http://wall-street.com/stockquote/?symbol=ZNGA

More mobile game subscriptions

 

Zynga’s turnaround is underway, according to CEO and director Frank D. Gibeau.

Zynga shares had risen 23 percent for eight consecutive trading days and hitt a new 52-week high on July 8. The rally was fuelled by the rollout of CSR Racing 2 (CSR2) and game bookings that reached $182 million in the first quarter, up 54 percent from last year and up 5 percent sequentially.

Mobile subscriptions now represent 76 percent of total subscriptions with Apple becoming its largest platform, surpassing Facebook bookings. Mobile audience grew 7 percent sequentially. Words With Friends recorded its highest Q1 bookings performance in six years. Mobile bookings for the Scrabble-inspired game rose 60 percent year-over-year.

CSR2 sped onto mobile screens in June together with Match-3 adventure Ice Age: Arctic Blast, which was inspired by the movie of the same title. Puzzle game Wizard of Oz: Magic Match, Spin It Rich! Slots and Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory Slots were launched in May. The games are downloadable for free on the App Store for iPhone and iPad,  Google Play for Android devices, the Amazon Appstore for Kindle devices and Facebook..

Zynga is building momentum in its mobile foray as Gibeau knows there is more room to grow in that platform.

 

Focus on quality games

 

Zynga is building a world-class studio and bringing in additional creative developers. Gibeau is leading the teams of developers to deliver high-quality experience to gamers. He wants them to produce game designs and systems that keep players engaged for a very long time so Zynga can hold on to them.

The strategy is valid. Sustainable games “don’t get into the charts and then fall out, but actually get into the charts and stick,” said Gibeau in the May earnings call.

Competition in the $100-billion global games market is challenging with around 400,000 new mobile games released every year, according to Gibeau. But out of that number, only 100 matter of which 20 have long-term retention and engaging relationship with the player. He said the top 20 games in the world chart give players different things to do over long periods of sessions.

Gibeau not only knows his game. He plays it well, too.

While the device stored sound on a magnetic tape, its successor, the digital recorder, stores sound on a memory card. Both machines incorporated various technologies developed over time by different inventors from the analog-to-digital conversion process to USB flash drive. The names Elwood G. Norris, Norbert P. Daberko and Steven T. Brightbill of eDigital Corp. are forever associated with the invention of the digital recorder for patenting a handheld record and playback device with flash memory in 1994.

Interestingly, the invention or U.S. patent 5491774 A figured in eDigital’s history for generating the company’s first profit in 2010, 22 years after it was founded by Norris. eDigital sued companies that infringed on the patent and later collected licensing fees. Patent monetization became eDigital’s bread and butter and to this day it continues to keep the company afloat. The latest patent infringement settlement was with a provider of Internet of Things solutions for enterprise and consumer markets and involved its sensor technology called Nunchi.

Monetizing Patents

 

eDigital continued to develop so-called foundational technologies and licensed them to customers. Aside from Nunchi, the company holds multiple patents for MicroSignet, a system and method for managing information stored in semiconductors; Synap, a security system, method, and apparatus for apps; the first system for transferring multimedia files from flash memory cards to PCs; and large-scale network technologies for secure content distribution.

Licensing fee revenues from 15 companies earned eDigital $693,500 for fiscal year 2016. The figure, however, is down from $2.1 million in fiscal year 2015, when eDigital signed 29 new patent license agreements. The company reported a net loss of $1.27 million for fiscal year 2016 from $235,153 in fiscal year 2015.

eDigital is not relying on selling licensing. It commercializes its intellectual property by making consumer products that feature its patents. The first ones were the Flashback, which the company claimed as the first portable digital voice recorder with removable flash memory, digital audio players and eVU portable media player, an in-flight entertainment device for airlines. The product portfolio grew to include combined microphone and speaker earpieces; the world’s first open media, solid-state music player for playing MP3, AAC, WMA and EPAC music files; the world’s first portable digital medical device for dictation and patient data capture; VoiceNav, a voice navigation technology for portable media devices; and wireless MP3 headsets employing its own MicroOS operating system.

Venturing into smart homes

 

The cybersecurity market was worth $75 billion in 2015, according to Forbes. eDigital faces tough competition from larger and rich companies that also own proprietary solutions. So, it tries to gain a foothold in the online security market by partnering with smaller companies that have an established presence in the sector, according to eDigital President and CEO Fred Falk.

eDigital sees an opportunity in the rapidly growing market, also known as the Internet of Things (IoT), and wants eDigital to cash in on it through product design. Nunchi is poised to play a key role in the future of mobile communications and the IoT, according to Falk.
Statista estimated the U.S. smart home market’s value at $6 billion annually. In this market, the potential of Nunchi, which allows devices to communicate and monitor remote locations, is on security cameras.

The connected home industry is increasingly becoming more reliant on the collection of data from remote sensors to determine the required response and the Nunchi technology has this capability, Falk said.
