Oasys’ Award Winning Desalination Technology

In several previous articles, we looked at the top-20  engineering, procurement and construction contractors for desalination plants constructed between the years 2000 to 2011. Of that list, only one company seemed like a viable pure-play investment in desalination. While the technology has been in operation for over a decade now, new disruptive desalination technologies are being backed by venture capital funding. One such example is Oasys Water.       About Oasys Water Boston Massachusetts based Oasys Water is on a mission to deliver innovative technology to clean the world’s most difficult waters. Founded in 2009, Oasys uses a “forward osmosis” water desalination technology that was developed out of Yale University.

Improving Chemotherapy with CorrectChemo

About Chemotherapy Everyone is probably familiar with the term "chemotherapy" as it relates to cancer treatment and the images it evokes are not pleasant ones mainly due to all the negative side effects the treatment is known for. One misconception about "chemotherapy" is that it relates to a single drug or method when in fact it refers to a wide range of drugs and methods. Chemotherapy is the process of administering one or more anti-cancer drugs (usually intravenously) to kill cells in the body that divide rapidly, one of the main characteristics of cancer cells. It is one of the major categories of cancer treatment with nearly all chemotherapy regimens using multiple drugs. Chemotherapy is a "big money" business with the top-10 chemotherapy drugs bringing in revenues of over $37 billion in 2013. One of the challenges of administering chemotherapy is determining which drug combinations to use and the size of [...]

Store Electronic Systems: An E-Ink Pure Play

In a previous article we discussed electronic ink or E-ink and how its usage will decline as the demand for e-readers declines. On the other hand, applications such as “electronic shelf labels (ESLs)” for use in retail “bricks-and-mortar” storefronts are expected to more than offset this decline. ABI Research issued a report recently titled “Next Gen Retail: Electronic Shelf Labels” in which they forecasted that revenues will increase almost six fold in the next 5 years to almost US$2 billion by 2019. In that same report, two companies were mentioned as major players that are dominating traditional ESL markets; Pricer and Store Electronics Systems (SES).       About Store Electronic Systems (SES) French- company Store Electonics Systems (EPA:SESL) or SES designs and markets electronic shelf labeling systems for food and non-food retail industries. The Company currently trades on the [...]

TINY: Are Shareholders About to be Rewarded?

In a July 2013 article, we highlighted Harris and Harris (NASDAQ:TINY), a publicly traded venture capital company that is focused on investing in companies that are involved in disruptive technologies. The article noted that TINY has not been a good long term investment. If you had been invested in TINY over the past 5 years, you would have lost -40% of your investment while if you had invested in the Nasdaq instead, your investment would be up over +120%. With the exception of a share price increase in early-mid 2014, the shares continue to languish and are trading around $2.79 compared to a $3.00 share price at the time of our first article.       TINY's NAV Net Asset Value (NAV) is calculated by taking all a company's assets (investments in private portfolio companies, rights to milestone payments, public securities at value, and cash) and then subtracting any liabilities (loans, [...]
