Vote history graph

At the COB, the Russell 2000 will be determined. Let's hope that some smart hedge fund that is thinking of buying into VTSS waits until the last hour on Friday to buy that 1m shares and drives the price up to $4.50+. They would almost certainly determine if VTSS is included into the R2000 with that move and would probably be rewarded handsomely on the first Monday in June. That is the kind of move we need someone to make - manipulate the stock – perhaps – manipulate the R2000? Quite possibly. I bet that kind of thing happens a lot – I will be watching and hoping.

100 share buys in the last minute could go a long way next Friday - think about it.......

Lets hope our potential(intelli, veriT, storage, IoT) opens the Russell doors to us since Q2 results and guidance were nothing to write home about.

Next Friday translates into May 30th, I believe. I think the criteria is strictly based on capitalization.

You are correct. Russell will rank the top 4,000 companies based on Friday's Closing Price. A concerted effort right in the last minute could mean the difference. This could be something that shareholders could actually influence. Sell some shares today to buy them back at $4.50, 4.70, 4.75 at the close - not very many shares could make a lot of difference. 100 share blocks - one after the other, after the other......

In this article Vitesse makes convincing arguments why the Russell has to let us in!! I am starting to really like our chances!

Wow (good find GARIF), we haven't seen Mudoi since he let the cat out of the bag about revenues not hitting until 2014 or 2015 (which is turning out to be prophetic). Still it's a good article and makes the case for ethernet as a one-size-fits-all communications solution. The article left me wondering though, where does Wi-Fi fit into all of this? Is Wi-Fi the next (?) ethernet? I don't think I have a clear picture here. I could be completely wrong, of course.

I wonder if savvy market makers would be caught completely by surprise by a ploy like this (putting in multiple buy orders right at the close)? It's not like they wouldn't know about the significance of next Friday too. Still, what an interesting idea...

Well the big do these things all the time - they drive the price down so they can buy selling little bits until enough people get scared and sell a bunch. They murder "shorts" at other times with a squeeze. I sold 600 shares so that I can make 5 buys in the last minute next Friday. That article above doesn't mean anything when it comes to the Russell 2000 - the ONLY thing that counts is the Friday closing price. We are interested parties - it will benefit our Company to be included - helping with the debt conversion - we are helping our Company. If 20 disassociated investors each come in with five 100 share trades in the last minute that would be 100 trades and certainly could move the stock on such an important day. And really, isn't it nothing more than investors acting in their own best interests and that of their company? Looks like a rare opportunity. I'll probably lose $500 total on the whole deal, but what do we stand to gain? Inclusion! I'll get my $500 back in short order and the Company will end up being debt free without having to spend on of that cash-on-hand. Unless my internet goes down on Friday, I'm there! It wouldn't hurt for some hedge fund to come in and buy as well. Someone bought a while back at $4.69 - so do it again.... This time we can make a difference.

I am not certain but I think what you are talking about is against the law. Not that anyone would care about VTSS. It is commonly called "painting the tape." An effort to force the closing price to artificial heights for various purposes. Most commonly to make the portfolio of a mutual fund manager look better at the end of a quarter or at the end of a period which will determine the compensation of the manager. Many of these guys are compensated relative to their competition. If they beat the returns of the competition they can receive very large bonuses.

But knock yourselves out. What can the SEC do, come after you for $100 of damages? But I don't think I would be advertising it.

I think the bottom level for market capitalization is well below the current level of VTSS. At least that is what this article would indicate. The smallest market cap is $129 million. VTSS is something much closer to $214 million.

First, it will be my $100 lost so where is the damage. Second, I also doubt that the SEC would care very much about my five 100 share purchases - but, if a big fish comes in on Friday after attending the conferences on the 28th and 29th, then that will be a solid deal for all of us. Either way, $5.00 is a great number - keep that in mind.

If the redo of the RUT 2000 next week is a profitable endeavor, you would think the hedge funds and their MBAs would be picking their favorite new candidates and placing their bets even now.

The way traders usually leverage their bets is through the options on a stock. The usually moribund options on VTSS seem to have some activity especially in the August series. No action or open interest in the June series, which is strange. I'm going to keep my eye on the options as we approach next Friday.

". That article above doesn't mean anything when it comes to the Russell 2000 - the ONLY thing that counts is the Friday closing price."

I am under the impression that "Russell' is opening doors to companies with potential disruptive technologies, companies with decent chances for strong growth...
modoy's article is similar to what ever pitch Vitesse used to flirt with Russell: Rus, we've had our issues but we have strong pertinent technology to offer the world, give us a chance, we will make you proud...

Once again it's about TOMORROW! Vitesse is a compelling story.

How can Russell not appreciate the "Vitesse Way"??

The Vitesse Way

Vitesse provides unique solutions to solve packet synchronization for wireless and many other networks with its VeriTime technology. VeriTime combines a best-in-class hardware-based architecture for 1588 frame generation, detection, and single-digit time-stamp accuracy with a PTP software suite for 1588 grand master clocks, slave clocks, and boundary and transparent clocks.

VeriTime technology is integrated into Vitesse SynchroPHY 10/100/1000Base-T/X Gigabit physical layers (PHYs), 1/10G Optical 10-Gigabit PHYs, 10G optical transport network/forward error correction (OTN/FEC) PHYs, Vitesse ViSAA Ethernet switches for carrier, enterprise, and industrial applications, Vitesse CEServices software packages, and Vitesse carrier-grade turnkey original design manufacturer (ODM) systems solutions.

VeriTime is the only solution in the market today that helps systems vendors design switches, routers, gateways, wireless basestations, indoor and outdoor picocells, and microwave, millimeter-wave, and passive optical network equipment that meet the stringent synchronization requirements of next-generation Time-Division LTE (TD-LTE) and LTE-A mobile networks. Most importantly, systems designed with Vitesse VeriTime fully meet the new timing accuracy class requirements currently being standardized by the ITU-T.

VeriTime borrows from a large toolbox of patented techniques, patent pending techniques, and trade secrets, such as:

• Single-digit accuracy time stamping engine with exceptional long-term stability

• Independent timing domains for 1588 and Synchronous Ethernet to avoid drift in holdover situations

• Sophisticated multi-protocol classification engines for 1588 frames in all relevant network protocol implementations, including multiprotocol label switching (MPLS)

• Distributed time stamping support in Vitesse PHYs and PTP software to enable time stamping directly at the port level, while seamlessly interworking with existing timing cards

• Efficient in-band collection and distribution of timestamps to eliminate CPU overhead or dedicated timestamp collection channels

• Distributed time-stamping support in Vitesse switches, PHYs, and PTP software to improve 1588 accuracy across microwave and millimeter-wave links as well as over passive optical networks

• Predictor algorithms to compensate for packet delay variations (PDVs) introduced by RF modems, OTN/FEC framers, and encryption engines.

To demonstrate the capabilities of Vitesse VeriTime technology, we put together a network of nine switch/routers connecting a grand master clock sending out 1588 frames and an ordinary clock recovering timing (both frequency and time) from the network. These results have been published in multiple contributions to the ITU. Table 2 shows results for maximum time interval error (MTIE), relevant for frequency accuracy and stability, as well as maximum time error (relevant for time/phase synchronization) at the slave clock with respect to the grand master clock.



As illustrated, the maximum time error after going through all nine switch/routers is no more than 25 ns for transparent clocks and no more than 51 ns for boundary clocks using VeriTime PHYs or switches, pointing to per network element error of no more than 3 ns for transparent clock mode and no more than 7 ns for boundary clock mode. More details and test results are reported in the Vitesse whitepaper, “Precise Timing for Base Stations in the Evolution to LTE.”

In summary, mobile network operators are now asking for all network equipment as well as macrocells and picocells to support IEEE1588 boundary and transparent clock modes, with both adhering to maximum time errors of either 50 ns or 20 ns. The ITU-T has ratified these time error classes as part of the telecom profile for time and phase delivery, G.827x.

With these new specs, operators will be able to design networks with packet-based synchronization that can back up GPS/GNSS synchronization schemes for macrocells. They also will be able to completely eliminate GPS for indoor and outdoor picocell deployments. Vitesse’s VeriTime total hardware and software timing solution is the only solution today that can guarantee that network equipment vendors will be able to meet these new requirements with minimal incremental equipment cost.

Martin Nuss is the CTO and vice president, technology and strategy, of Vitesse Semiconductor. He also serves on the board of directors for the Alliance for Telecommunications Industry Solutions (ATIS). He is a fellow of the Optical Society of America and a member of IEEE as well. He has a doctorate in applied physics from the Technical University in Munich, Germany. He can be reached at nuss@vitesse.com.

VTSS not only created a compelling feature set, but invented the case for Ethernet as the present and future information transmission solution. VTSS and Nuss deserve a lot of credit.

Well the day draws near. Volume has remained light with price bias to the upside. Let's hope we make the RUT 2000, not only for the fund required purchases, but for the prestige aspects.

It's a little embarrassing when some small company selling crap makes it and we don't.

Well, I would guess the new list should be out around the 16th of June with the initial list of additions and deletions to the R2000. Then another week until the final list and then the funds have to have purchased or sold by the last trading day of June. Hopefully we will make it this time - certainly can't hurt, right?

Keep your powder dry today folks until the end - I still have my five trades awaiting - starting at $4.50 and going up...... We'll see what happens -

this like having a rocket on the launching pad only to continue to have delays and postponing the countdown to launch. 10, 9, 8, ...................

VTSS is still a company which is unproven to the investment community, and whose last "big news" was the news of scandal. This is VTSS' perception. In order to overcome the black cloud under which they find themselves, they need to at the very least begin to grow the top line. If you can't sell product, you do not have a company, you are engaged in a hobby: all else is window dressing. Top-line growth will probably begin to occur early next year if we can believe current estimates. It is what it is.

The Forum pretty much convinced me that $219m was already enough to make the R2000. I guess we will find out in mid-June. Hopefully, that will make a difference. Looking at the Point and Figure charts, we could easily be poised for a big breakout, which have all waited a long time for.

This is the first time we have even approached a Resistance Line since 2010 - with the initial failure in April, selection to the R2000 could gain some attention, break the resistance, put us back up to a double top at $4.50, ready for a breakout. All these stories? If they can only just start turning them into some Revenue then things will turn around for us. I have been here an awfully long time and more than ready to see things turn around.
