Liquidmetal Technologies Inc (OTCBB:LQMT) used to be a $20 big board stock with a billion dollar market valuation. Unfortunately the product was not yet ready for market and after a string of bad management decisions LQMT ended up on the bb’s. The shell started as a Caltech research project in the early 90’s that was eventually IPO’d on the NASDAQ in 2002. Liquidmetal alloys contain atoms of significantly different sizes that form a dense mix. It behaves more like glass in the sense that its viscosity drops gradually with increased temperature and retains its form and amorphous properties even after being heat-formed.
And, most importantly, the company has found a believer in Apple and all sign point to the tech giant finding new ways to employ Liquid Metal’s tech. Rumors were that Apple might be using it for an enhanced power button. However, Liquidmetal is about far more than being an Apple supplier right now. The company took a $60 million investment last year from a Chinese billionaire who now serves as CEO and has spent the last six months cutting costs and repositioning the company as the leader in the development and provision of this type of metal product.
Currently trading at a market capitalization of $288.02M, LQMT has manageable debt and decent cash available. Many shareholders are in on this one already and see a bullish long-term path.
