re: Corvis Closing in on New Customers Everyone:

The bottom line is Corvis will win or lose based on their technology and their execution on the sales & marketing side, not based on anything LR says about the company, and certainly not based on anything said in these message boards.

Corvis stockholders, pay attention-

If Corvis doesn't come through with good customers and/or contracts, LR will report that. If, however, Corvis does announce financially solid customers with large/long commitments, then LR will report that too.

Attacking LR and defending Corvis in message boards isn't going to suddenly make Corvis a good company, and it's certainly not going to make the price of the stock jump. You're wasting your time trying to shoot the messenger.

Time will tell how good Corvis really is...

re: Corvis Closing in on New Customers re: SCMR stock. We've said the stock got clobbered. We've said they lost contracts (to CIEN). What more should we say?

You should read the site more often.

re: Corvis Closing in on New Customers re: ff

Obviously I disagree with your characterization; there's little to be gained in endless back and forth. If expressing irritation with the endless litany of pro-Corvis/anti-LR whining is "hypersensitive", then I plead guilty. More than enough said.

>Let me see if I have this straight now ... anyone who disagrees with you or LR staff is pathetic?

One can only hope you aren't a logician for work, if this is representative of your analytical skills. It's one thing to disagree on issues, and quite another to intentionally mischaracterize the argument. Not interested in that game, thanks anyway.

re: Corvis Closing in on New Customers Dsmith-

It sounds like we are in violent agreement. I have no interest in mudslinging either. I am entirely interested in "fruitful substantive discussion" which unfortunately seems to have been a relatively rare occurrence in these fora, which is why I objected to the accusations, conspiracy-mongering et al in the first place.

I think it's time to let it go. Onto interesting discussions...

-->I personally disagree with you. The stock jumped %9 this morning after the article came out. The only other news was actually a target price cut from AG Edwards. If it had nothing to do with the LR article, Please explain what made the stock jump this morning?

"Corvis stockholders, pay attention-"

-->We are. This is why we are posting.

"If Corvis doesn't come through with good customers and/or contracts, LR will report that. If, however, Corvis does announce financially solid customers with large/long commitments, then LR will report that too."

-->I don't believe anyone here said that they wouldn't. What some of us believe is that LR will report any news on Corvis in a negative way. Some of us take issue with that.

And you know what? It's gonna be that way. Some readers will actually not agree with the way that LR reports news. You know what else? If LR didn't want people to tell them about it, they wouldn't allow any and everyone to post comments on each article they put out.

This is what gives them feedback from actual readers of the site and let them know what the readers are getting out of it. What is wrong with that?

"Attacking LR and defending Corvis in message boards isn't going to suddenly make Corvis a good company, and it's certainly not going to make the price of the stock jump. You're wasting your time trying to shoot the messenger."

-->cfaller, you are not the "hall monitor". If I want to shoot LR in the chest for what I believe is shotty journalism, then I will. If you want to defend them, go ahead. This is why we have message boards.

Message boards are for opinions and that is what has been posted. It started out as a few praise comments to LR from Corvis supporters turned into a slugfest attacking the posters. Those people are as "against" Corvis as the supports are "for" Corvis.

You say "don't shoot the messenger"? Then why are you shooting everybody that posts comments on the article that you don't agree with?

They are messengers too.

If you can't take the opinions of others, then maybe YOU should re-evaluate why you are on these boards. I, for one, have no problem with your opinions. It makes for good conversation and helps stimulate feedback.

But shooting people for HAVING opinions doesn't make much sense. At least not where I live in the United States.

My Bottom Line:
If LR doesn't want my opinion, they'll ban me or pull the message boards.

Until then, there's not much yer gonna do about Corvis supporters :-)

re: Corvis Closing in on New Customers I couldn't agree more with cfaller. In terms of full disclosure: I am an investor in Corvis with a medium size stake that is mostly under water. I have followed LR for some time and have also felt that they were biased against Corvis. Everybody should realize however that the opinions of LR or the posters here (positive or negative) will not have any meaningful effect on the stock price. As someone who has a financial interest in Corvis, it was nice to see a positive article...but that's all it was.."nice".

"Areyousure" writes that the 9% gain can be attributed to the LR article. Was the gain held? Did the volume increase dramatically?
The people and organizations with the financial power to move the market (market makers, fund managers, etc.) will gradually buy Corvis now and sell to rest of us when Corvis actually (I hope) announces the new customers.

re: Corvis Closing in on New Customers Given LRs bias in the past and the fact that I don't see any Corvis banners popping up on their homepage lately that would indicate a change in their relationship, it seems plausible that LR may be manufacturing news. Announcing TWO new customers in TWO weeks seems astonishing given Corvis's track record. The possible LR headline in TWO weeks could be "Corvis Disappoints Again!". Somewhere embedded in the story might be the line "after pervasive rumors that Corvis was about to announce two customers, Corvis again failed to produce"

How about another senario? Let's say Corvis does announce one new customer in the next few weeks. LR is positioned to be negative about that announcement because the "rumor" was that there would be two.

re: Corvis Closing in on New Customers I admit to being a Corv cheerleader...but even I wouldn't subscribe to this conspiracy theory. This story was well reported by a number of publications include Dow Jones News.
Scott Raynovich 12/4/2012 | 8:39:28 PM
re: Corvis Closing in on New Customers Optical_guy: You mean, the story was reported by Light Reading. The Dow Jones story crossed the wire an hour after ours, and if you read it closely, the story contains no new information and was a very poor procrastination job.
