I have three companies in mind - all of them in the same industry - and here is what I'm going to tell you about them:
Company A - 142 Employees, 7.9 Million Revenue - 55000 Per employee
Company B - 158500 Employees, 64 Billion Revenue - 404290 per employee
Company C - 225 Employees, 25.2 Million Revenue - 1122888 per employee.
Which of these companies quadrupled in the last six months? That's right, Company C, the one that made the most money per employee - it is the most efficient company out there. Is it going to quadruple again? That's doubtful. It's name is Syntax-Brillian Corp (BRLC) and it went from 2.0 to 9.5 since July.
Company A has a great product and its on its way out. Why? Because a company that only made 55K per employee can't stay in business without a heavy cash transfusion. This company is bleeding money.
And because Company B, Sony, spends more than 7.9 million a year in paper clips they could just as easily steal the technology and put them out of business - what choice would Company A have in such a scenario - that's right - none?
Company A? MVIS - a nice little company with a nice little product with a nice little price trying to compete in a huge pond filled with sharks. I wish them and their shareholders well.
