Re: Noticing some the twitter feeds coming out of SID
One doesn't need to realize all the potential magnitude of a new technology to buy some shares of a promising company. But it is always comes down to risk vs reward. No amount of promoting the 'reward' part wouldn't make the risk part to go away. So people pass.
Especially when they can make easy guaranteed money buying mutual funds or googles or amazons, there is no reason for them to invest in a money losing company that issues new shares constantly.
If the 'risk' part goes away - this is completely different situation. There will be a lot of people willing to take a chance on this stock knowing there is little chance they will lose money if the company is profitable and the valuations are decent.
