I'll have to take your word for the 100 share buying pattern as I have no Idea about how large institutions buy there shares. I hope your right, I was worried all the small buys was someone slowly getting out of their holdings in DMRC. at the same time I have to believe that this next conference call is going to be at least extremely encouraging if not outstanding. We'll know for sure next week,fingers crossed.

my 2 cents. last week when there was an analyst that gave DMRC a poor rating,...and price tanked,...at the same time other companies in the same exact sector as DMRC were moving up in price,..that seemed odd to me, very odd.

why wasn't the entire sector getting punished like DMRC ? it didn't make sense to me. especially for the fact that DMRC has its products in WMT and other retailers.

so in my way of thinking IF something doesn't make sense then its being manipulated.

i've been watching the buys and sells go through,... a lot of buying is in 100 share blocks,...that is institutional buying. that is the pattern.

my thought is that this analyst was a deterrent to scare weak hands to sell to drive the price down so these institutions can get in cheap. they've taken it down approx 25% (high was $41.75) to the recent $30.95.

my perspective might be incorrect but i've got a few options positions so i've got skin in the game.

my WAG,....come earnings this will fly !!!

it's going to come down to which company chain stores like WMT and WFC decide to use. DMRC has competition so its not a clear path to a higher stock price.

Digimarc: The Revenue Begins
Jul. 6, 2017

Watermarked products are on shelves at Wal-Mart.

Virtually all major retailers have expressed interest.

Amazon's Whole Foods acquisition will speed adoption.

About two years ago, with Digimarc (DMRC) trading around $40 per share and Wal-Mart (NYSE:WMT) dropping hints about collaborating with the company, I concluded an article by writing, "a move from $40 to $200 is still good whether it happens in a matter of months or after several years."

Today, shares are trading around $40 per share again, but Wal-Mart is no longer being so coy. You can go to a store right now and scan some of their Great Value brand items using the Digimarc Discover app to observe Digimarc technology at work.



For people new to this story, what you see in the above video is the most salient application for Digimarc's patented watermarking technology. Those packages, while still carrying a traditional barcode, have been imperceptibly modified so that they are scannable in their entirety. This saves time at checkout, creates efficiencies throughout the supply chain, and creates an opportunity for effortless consumer engagement.



These time savings represent billions to retailers, and to answer a common question: No, the benefits don't accrue only after a critical mass of watermarking is achieved. Even if a cashier or warehouse worker is oblivious to the technology they are working with, the items will still scan faster as workers reorient them in search of the visible bar code.

The benefit to brands is harder to quantify, but Digimarc management has expressed surprise at the rate at which they've been approached by consumer packaged good (CPG) companies who are not waiting to feel pressured by retailers to make their move.

Solidifying the appeal of the solution is the pricing. Digimarc will be charging all but the largest companies a recurring $50 per shop keeping unit (SKU), which for the benefits gained, should create a great return on investment.

In fact, Digimarc has something of a Goldilocks solution. RFID can do something similar, but companies incur a higher cost to implement that solution since each item produced comes with an incremental expense. Wrapping a product in visible barcodes can get around the cost issue, but companies are not keen on having their brand crisscrossed with long black stripes.



Evidence for industry interest in Digimarc's technology comes directly from management who mentioned during their Q4 conference call, "We have some level of engagement with all of the top 10 retailers in the world and six of the top 10 CPGs. These relationships range from discussion of pilots to contract small volume production." These are in addition to ongoing fully operational roll outs with smaller grocers Wegman's and New Seasons.

When exactly Digimarc will begin converting talks and pilots into dollars is not totally clear, but the most recent call provided some encouraging color. Management disclosed, "This is the second master services agreement we have entered into with a top 10 retailer. The other relationship is further along and involves lots of moving parts and is taking some time to mature." In other words, talks haven't stalled with the big retailers. Signatures have been placed on the dotted line and now Digimarc just has to hit certain milestones.

Independent of this information, Digimarc has been disclosing bookings for a few quarters and finished 2016 with $1.8 million-a number that is symbolically, if not statistically significant.

If there was any doubt as to whether Wal-Mart was one of the two initial signers of the master services agreements, one need to look no further than Digimarc's jobs page:



So what are these master services agreements worth? From a few hundred thousand per year up to maybe a million? It's hard to say, but it's also not terribly important. Digimarc is not poised to succeed on have a couple of monstrous contracts but rather a bounty of small and medium sized ones. The list of supermarket chains alone, many of which have their own store brand, is enormous. This is to say nothing of CPG companies which could have one or tens of thousands of SKUs. Having the biggest names in the business on board is important mostly in terms of putting the smaller players in the industry on notice and creating a fast followers effect.

Once the reactive players begin to adopt, there is the potential for rapid acceleration. Management is fond of pointing out that the total addressable market in terms of SKUs is in the hundreds of millions. Obviously, Digimarc will never capture 100% of that, and capturing the first few percentage points will take time, but even so.... the opportunity relative to the company's current market cap of around $400 million is significant. Two million SKUs at $50 per year is $100 million of high margin and recurring revenue, and from there the potential begins to get downright preposterous.

Most recently, management estimated that the number of partners they have who have begun some sort of production using their technology to be, "probably 30 to 50." Significantly, there appear to be several heavy hitters in the bunch besides Wal-Mart with people scanning activated brand labels on grocery store shelves for Dr. Pepper, Smuckers, and Procter & Gamble. In fact, a secondary benefit to owning shares of DMRC may be that trips to the grocery store become Easter egg hunts for watermarked items.

Looping back to my quote from two years prior, things have taken awhile and they will most likely continue to creep rather than sprint (whether share price will do the same is another issue.) That being said, management has been learning as things have moved forward and are applying their new knowledge to help speed up the process.

Most dramatically, Digimarc has pushed against the idea that companies all need to run their own studies. This has led to national commissions in Germany and Japan where businesses can coordinate their testing and cut down on time to market. Signs point to things going well in these regions, as if one refers back to the job postings earlier in the article, they will see that local sales staff is about to be put in place.

Additionally, during the passage of those two years, stores of all sorts have continued to upgrade their scanning technology from laser based to image based, enabling the recognition of invisible watermarking. This is in accordance with the recommendation of GS1 the independent organization that manages barcoding systems. The shift is not happening because of Digimarc specifically, but the company is a happy beneficiary.

A final catalyst that should shorten the timeline of widespread adoption of digital watermarking is Amazon (NASDAQ:AMZN) acquisition of Whole Foods (NASDAQ:WFM). The conventional wisdom is that retailers who may have been tentative about taking the plunge suddenly see themselves in a more 'adapt or die' type situation as the online retailer brings its ruthless efficiency to their doorstep. Needless to say, there should be some interesting insights regarding sentiment during the Q2 call.

Consumer packaged goods companies may not feel the pressure of Amazon, but they have their own incentive to cross over approaching as new nutritional labeling requirements eventually go into effect. If a company must update their packaging anyway, the logic goes, that's the opportune time to embrace the invisible barcode.

There are other things to like about Digimarc that extend beyond this application or even this technology. They watermark audio, prevent eBook piracy, have a legacy business that protects US currency, and own a host of patents that in the past they have licensed as a means of generating revenue. Close partnerships with HP and Shazam, among a host of others, add major names and demonstrate the breadth of their ecosystem. Finally, an examination of their balance sheet will show they carry no debt, and have a multi year runway of cash on hand.



But the invisible barcode dwarfs these in terms of opportunity and so has been the focus here.

Two years ago Digimarc was a 'not if but when' type play. Now, there are a known two million in bookings that will be hitting the top line soon, and from there the initial master services agreements along with drips and drabs from other retailers and CPGs should begin to snowball. It's no longer about the when, it's about how much. And signals from management and store shelves are indicating that the answer will be a very large number.

Disclosure: I am/we are long DMRC.

I wrote this article myself, and it expresses my own opinions. I am not receiving compensation for it (other than from Seeking Alpha). I have no business relationship with any company whose stock is mentioned in this article.

FMI Connect 2014 Attendees Get Live Demo of Faster Checkout Using Digimarc(R) Barcode

Thursday 5 June 2014

FMI Connect 2014 Attendees Get Live Demo of Faster Checkout Using Digimarc(R) Barcode
Attendees to Compete for Fast Checkout Speed of the Day

BEAVERTON, OR and CHICAGO, IL--(Marketwired - Jun 4, 2014) - FMI Connect Booth #4450 -- Digimarc Corporation (NASDAQ: DMRC) today announced a demo of the new Digimarc® Barcode at Food Marketing Institute (FMI) Connect 2014 being held June 10-13 in Chicago, IL. Attendees will get a hands-on opportunity to try out this new technology, proven to dramatically speed up in-store checkout; and engage shoppers on their mobile devices -- at home, on the go, and in the store.

Using Digimarc-enabled packaging, attendees will see just how much faster checkout can be with Digimarc Barcodes. Prior demonstrations have shown amazing increases in scanning speeds over traditional barcodes.

The Digimarc Barcode employs patented digital watermarking technology, an imperceptible pattern that can be repeatedly embedded into the images and graphics of printed consumer packaged goods, or in some cases, directly into the packaging material itself. This unique approach makes the entire package scannable -- not just the traditional UPC symbol. The Digimarc Barcode's ease of scanning makes it easier for consumers with smartphones to reliably identify products, giving retailers and brands opportunities to enhance convenience and engagement for mobile-enabled shoppers.

At the show, Digimarc will showcase two breakthrough demos:

Faster Scanning - Digimarc will demonstrate how checkout clerks, as well as shoppers using self-checkout, can quickly scan items without having to find and position the barcode toward the reader, resulting in shorter lines for shoppers and significant labor cost savings for retailers. The demo will feature a Datalogic Magellan™ 9800i multi-pane imaging scanner to detect and process Digimarc Barcodes.

Consumer Engagement - Using mobile devices pre-loaded with the company's consumer-facing Digimarc® Discover app and other compatible apps, attendees can scan Cooking Light ready-made entrees and side dishes, available in select retailers now, and various Digimarc-enabled demonstration materials. Scans will provide instant access to additional product information, special offers, reviews, social networks and other helpful information which illustrates how Digimarc can enhance all aspects of the mobile-centric shopper's journey.

How Fast Can You Scan?
Attendees can put their scanning skills to the test in Digimarc's Package Scanning Game, a contest the company introduced at NRF 2014 that demonstrates how much faster anyone can scan items using Digimarc Barcode.

Think you have what it takes to beat the current record for scanning 20 items in 8.92 seconds (a rate of 134 items per minute)? Stop by booth #4450 and find out! Contestants with the top speed of the day will win an iPad Air. The next two fastest times will be awarded a GoPro® Camera.

Digimarc Publishes Quantitative Model Estimating Potential Labor Cost Savings for Retailers Who Adopt Digimarc Barcode
Monday 5 May 2014

Digimarc Publishes Quantitative Model Estimating Potential Labor Cost Savings for Retailers Who Adopt Digimarc Barcode
White Paper and ROI Calculator Help Retailers Estimate Return on Investment From Adopting Digimarc(R) Barcode

BEAVERTON, OR--(Marketwired - May 5, 2014) - Digimarc Corporation (NASDAQ: DMRC) today published "Digimarc® Barcode: A Quantitative Model of Annual Labor Cost Savings and Return on Investment for Retailers." The white paper and associated ROI (return on investment) Calculator are intended to help retailers quantify potential labor cost savings from adopting the Digimarc Barcode. The quantitative model focuses on the top 120 global high-volume retailers and projects that this group could realize aggregate labor cost savings in excess of $500 million annually for a single item per minute (IPM) improvement in scanning speed at checkout. The white paper, quantitative model, and ROI Calculator are available at www.digimarc.com/model.

The Digimarc Barcode is a high-performance digital watermark-based barcode enhancement. It greatly improves speed of checkout -- and occupies no space on the package. The Digimarc Barcode repetitively encodes the same data currently carried in the product's traditional barcode symbol invisibly over the entire surface of packages and labels. This means that cashiers, as well as shoppers using self-checkout, can quickly scan items without having to find and position the barcode toward the reader, creating opportunities for improving retailers' margins and customer satisfaction.

"Potential labor cost savings are a quantifiable benefit of adopting the Digimarc Barcode," said Ed Knudson, executive vice president, sales and marketing at Digimarc. "High-volume retailers focus on IPM as a key performance measurement, and the IPM improvements we're seeing in our internal testing could translate into billions of dollars in savings across the industry."

Digimarc's ROI Calculator was designed for use by retailers to estimate potential savings from a reduction in cashier labor costs due to faster processing at checkout. The ROI Calculator is available to the public in spreadsheet format, allowing for inputs of different assumptions and experience data to estimate the ROI from adopting the Digimarc Barcode.

The white paper describes the model structure, assumptions, and sources of data, including a hypothetical example of a retailer with $10 billion in annual sales of which 25 percent is comprised of private label brands. In this scenario, adoption of the Digimarc Barcode is estimated to deliver a 5-year ROI of more than 275 percent by enabling private label products alone, and more than 1200 percent assuming adoption by all brands in the stores.

The Digimarc Barcode is the latest feature in the Digimarc Discover optimization of the Shopper's Journey. Other aspects of Digimarc Discover allow mobile-centric shoppers to automatically identify brand impressions in and out of stores, connect automatically to engaging content provided by the associated brands, and allow users to add their interest in the product to an activity list.

Digimarc welcomes feedback aimed at improving the model and key assumptions that it relies upon. The model contains many assumptions based on limited publicly available data. Improvements to the model and associated ROI Calculator are expected to play an important role in facilitating procurement decisions of retailers, and informing resource allocations of Digimarc retailers, and suppliers. Please provide comments, criticisms, alternative views, sources of additional data, etc. via the following channels:

Digimarc Reports First Quarter 2014 Financial Results
Marketwired Digimarc Corporation
April 23, 2014 4:05 PM
BEAVERTON, OR--(Marketwired - Apr 23, 2014) - Digimarc Corporation (NASDAQ: DMRC) reported financial results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2014.

First Quarter 2014 Results
Revenue for the first quarter of 2014 totaled $7.2 million compared to $10.2 million in the first quarter of 2013. The decrease was primarily due to the end of the scheduled minimum quarterly license fee payments from Intellectual Ventures (IV) in the second quarter of 2013. The comparative decline was partially offset by increased royalty revenue from other licensees.

Operating loss for the first quarter of 2014 totaled $3.3 million compared to operating income of $1.6 million in the same quarter a year-ago. The operating loss was primarily due to lower revenue and increased investment in the company's ongoing product development and sales growth initiatives, mainly focused around Digimarc Discover and Barcode.

Net loss for the first quarter of 2014 totaled $2.0 million or $(0.29) per diluted share compared to net income of $1.0 million or $0.13 per diluted share in the first quarter of 2013.

At March 31, 2014, cash, cash equivalents and marketable securities totaled $32.3 million compared to $35.0 million at December 31, 2013.

Conference Call
Digimarc will hold a conference call later today (Wednesday, April 23, 2014) to discuss these results. Management will also provide an update on market conditions and execution of strategy. Chairman and CEO Bruce Davis and CFO Charles Beck will host the call starting at 5:00 p.m. Eastern time (2:00 p.m. Pacific time). A question and answer session will follow management's presentation.

The call will be broadcast live via webcast at www.digimarc.com/investors and available for replay through May 23, 2014. The webcast will be archived and available on Digimarc's website at www.digimarc.com/investors/investor-events-and-webcasts.

Here is a stock with only a little more than 7 million shares outstanding. All of a sudden it is becoming extremely active. I could see a big move upward with any sought of announcement. DMRC's executives have been very quiet. This stock has all the ingredients for a major move upward.

London Book Fair: Digimarc to Detail the Latest Tools to Help Publishers Combat Digital Piracy
Digital Watermark-Based Anti-Piracy Programs Help Publishers Protect Revenue and Author Rights

BEAVERTON, OR and LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM--(Marketwired - Apr 1, 2014) - Digimarc Corporation (NASDAQ: DMRC) today announced that Devon Weston, Manager of Client Relations for Digimarc® Guardian, the company's leading anti-piracy platform, will be speaking at the London Book Fair, taking place April 8-10, 2014 at the Earls Court Exhibition Centre. Weston will detail how publishers can use digital watermarks to combat the high cost of e-book piracy.

E-book piracy is estimated to cost publishers around the world billions of dollars annually. In "The Impact of Digital Watermarking on Piracy" session, publishers of all sizes will learn proven strategies for finding and removing pirated content across the web to protect revenue and author rights. The presentation is scheduled for Wednesday, April 9 at 4:30 PM GMT in Tech Theatre 1 of the Earls Court Exhibition Centre.

Digimarc Guardian Watermarking is an effective, user-friendly alternative to traditional Digital Rights Management (DRM) technology. It enables publishers to track and trace leaked and illicitly distributed content back to the source by identifying watermarked assets and securely delivering unique transaction IDs back to content owners for analysis. This integrated takedown process is proven to deliver high removal rates across a broad number of website types. Publishers can add Digimarc Guardian for Books to create a closed-loop anti-piracy protection solution for all their works.

Content owners interested in learning more about Digimarc Guardian at the London Book Fair can see a demonstration and meet with Digimarc's anti-piracy experts in Booth #S530. Learn more at: www.digimarc.com/guardian.

Digimarc Reports Fourth Quarter and Full Year 2013 Financial Results

Thursday 20 February 2014

Digimarc Reports Fourth Quarter and Full Year 2013 Financial Results
BEAVERTON, OR--(Marketwired - Feb 20, 2014) - Digimarc Corporation (NASDAQ: DMRC) reported financial results for the fourth quarter and fiscal year ended December 31, 2013.

Fourth Quarter 2013 Results
Revenue for the fourth quarter of 2013 totaled $6.8 million compared to $9.3 million in the fourth quarter of 2012. The decrease was primarily due to the end of the scheduled minimum quarterly license fee payments from Intellectual Ventures (IV) in the second quarter of 2013. The comparative decline was partially offset by increased subscription revenue from a full quarter of Attributor's sales in the fourth quarter of 2013 and higher service revenue from the Central Banks.

Operating loss for the fourth quarter of 2013 totaled $3.4 million compared to operating income of $1.9 million in the same quarter a year-ago. The operating results for the fourth quarter of 2013 reflect lower revenue and higher operating costs due to increased investments in the company's product development and sales growth initiatives, as well as the impact of a full quarter of Attributor's operating costs in the fourth quarter of 2013.

Net loss for the fourth quarter of 2013 totaled $1.3 million or $0.19 per diluted share compared to net income of $1.1 million or $0.14 per diluted share in the fourth quarter of 2012. The decrease was due to lower operating income partially offset by a benefit for income taxes in the fourth quarter of 2013.

Full Year 2013 Results
Revenue in 2013 totaled $35.0 million compared to $44.4 million in 2012. The decrease was primarily due to the $8.0 million past due royalties payment received from Verance Corporation in the first quarter of 2012 and the end of the scheduled minimum quarterly license fee payments from IV in the second quarter of 2013. Revenue from IV for these license fees was $12.6 million in 2012 versus $6.8 million in 2013. The comparative decline was partially offset by increased subscription revenue from a full year of Attributor's sales in 2013 and higher service revenue from the Central Banks.

Operating loss in 2013 totaled $2.4 million compared to operating income of $14.6 million in 2012. The decrease reflects lower revenue and higher operating costs due to increased investments in the company's product development and sales growth initiatives, as well as the impact of a full year of Attributor's operating costs in 2013.

Net loss in 2013 totaled $0.5 million or $0.10 per diluted share compared to net income of $8.3 million or $1.12 per diluted share in 2012. The decrease was due to lower operating income partially offset by a benefit for income taxes in 2013.

At December 31, 2013, cash, cash equivalents and marketable securities totaled $35.0 million compared to $39.1 million at December 31, 2012.

It's an important call. We know the company has what seems to be breakthrough technology on the replacement for barcoding and point of sale marketing.

If the barcode replacement is adopted it will save the top retailers billions annually - and the company said they had had talked to all the major retailers at the conference last month.

Therefore, things should be starting to develop. Even if they haven't signed any major deals yet, I'd like to hear that they are in talks with one or more of these retailers.

News Corp.’s (NASDAQ:NWS) (NASDAQ:NWSA) HarperCollins,
one of the world’s largest publishing companies, recently requested that
HarperCollins Accuses Apple of Copyright Infringement.

JANUARY 27, 2014

Google (NASDAQ:GOOG) remove search engine links to some of its own books on Apple’s (NASDAQ:AAPL) iTunes in what appears to be a poorly executed attempt to fight online piracy, reports TorrentFreak. HarperCollins made the takedown requests through Digimarc (NASDAQ:DMRC), a company that provides anti-piracy protection for publishers and authors.

As seen in the screenshot above, Digimarc’s takedown requests included eight links to HarperCollins e-books offered through Apple’s iTunes Store. The eight targeted books are all mystery novels written by Agatha Christie, including Motive v. Opportunity: A Miss Marple Short Story, Death on the Nile, The Mysterious Affair at Styles, Poirot Investigates, Poirot and the Regatta Mystery, Postern of Fate (Tommy & Tuppence), and Problem at Pollensa Bay. As noted by TorrentFreak, HarperCollins acquired the rights to eighty of Christie’s works in 2010.

Digimarc’s website claims that it “is the global leader in protecting books, publications and documents from the threat of digital piracy. Our service finds and removes pirated content across the web to protect publisher revenues and author rights through an integration takedown process that delivers high removal rates across various website types.”

Besides serving HarperCollins, Digimarc also provides its anti-piracy service for Simon & Schuster, Random House, and Scholastic (NASDAQ:SCHL). Although Digimarc noted that its anti-piracy service is “Highly automated,” it also claimed that it uses two levels of human validation before proceeding with a takedown request. However, Digimarc’s repeated takedown requests that target officially-licensed content on Apple’s iTunes seem to suggest that the company’s overall process may need to be reevaluated.

HarperCollins may be familiar to some Apple watchers as one of the five publishers that were involved in the e-book price-fixing conspiracy that Apple was found guilty of orchestrating. Apple filed a notice of appeal against the verdict and is also currently trying to get the antitrust compliance monitor removed from his position. HarperCollins settled its antitrust case with the government without going to trial.

Unfortunately, this wasn’t the only set of misguided takedown requests that Digimarc submitted on HarperCollins’ behalf. TorrentFreak discovered several other takedown notices from Digimarc that also requested the removal of HarperCollins’ own Agatha Christie books from iTunes. Not surprisingly, Google has rejected the majority of Digimarc’s poorly researched takedown requests, including the links to Apple’s iTunes. Out of the 1,000 takedown requests in the first notice, Google refused to comply with 914 requests. From another set of 1,000 takedown requests,
Google rejected 917.

Oddly enough, Digimarc even targeted iTunes links to Agatha Christie books that haven’t been released yet. In other words, HarperCollins was accusing itself by proxy of pirating its own books before they had even been released.

I'm not trading this one, but it was nice to see 30 hold.

The company would be profitable even if they had no royalties from their agreement with IV and got nothing from their replacement for barcoding.

Now it's almost a certainty that IV will be putting some cash in DMRC's pockets - if DMRC can sign a deal to get their barcode replacement in one or more retailers, that will put a LOT of cash to their bottom line.

So even though the stock has had a great run the past 3 weeks, and a pullback could happen at any time, I still think the stock is a low risk speculation at 30.

Even though we don't know the terms, presumably a settlement means DMRC got something. Certainly they won't let themselves get caught like this again.

This is one of the things that was holding back the stock price last year. Now that it's resolved, there aren't any dark clouds on the horizon.

Digimarc and Intellectual Ventures Settle Disputes and Strengthen Business Relationship

Digimarc and Intellectual Ventures Settle Disputes and Strengthen Business Relationship
BEAVERTON, OR--(Marketwired - Jan 21, 2014) - Digimarc Corporation (NASDAQ: DMRC) and Intellectual Ventures (IV) have reached a settlement in their arbitration concerning disputes relating to IV's calculation of potential profit sharing payments under Digimarc's patent license with them. The parties have resolved all matters pending in the arbitration. The terms of the settlement are confidential.

"With this matter behind us, we can refocus resources on maximizing the mutual profitability of monetizing the patents licensed to IV. We and IV have identified numerous interesting licensing opportunities to pursue," said Bruce Davis, Digimarc's Chairman and CEO. Davis continued, noting that "Digimarc has a key role to play in the monetization process by proving the value of its inventions in various commercial initiatives."

"IV and Digimarc have continued to work together to pursue licensing customers for Digimarc's patent portfolio," said Ken Lustig, Vice President of Intellectual Ventures. "We have maintained a good business relationship and look forward to Digimarc's ongoing assistance in our licensing efforts."

Digimarc has received reports for licensing activity through December 2012. The activities did not result in profit participation and the settlement did not change this outcome. The generation of profits to share is a function of Digimarc's demonstration of value of the inventions and joint licensing efforts with IV. Digimarc is not yet in a position to project if, when, or how much profit participation it will receive. The next profit participation report is due in March 2014, covering 2013 licensing activities.

It's a good presentation. I recommend it.

There are a lot of small companies that might have huge payoffs for investors in different sectors like tech, biotech, or natural resources. What makes Digimarc so appealing is that they have a technology that is now ready to go, with a partnership in place.

And yet they didn't go into debt or dilute to get here. So while we wait to see how fast they capture this market (based on the projected savings to big retailers it could be fast), there's little fear that we wake up to a PR about a secondary. Instead, DMRC pays a dividend.

Even though it was a better buy at 18 than 27, it's still a good speculation. But until there's more clarity on the adoption of the technology by retailers, the stock will be traded. I'd buy on dips and not chase it. But it should end the year significantly higher than where it is today.

DMRC imo could go to $100+. --orders for the scanning technology have HUGE potential with ONLY 7.3 M shs. outstanding. That equals possible HUGE EARNINGS PER SHARE . DMRC has many patents and a good balance sheet. WHO NEEDS DDD or SSYS?

Also, very few shares outstanding. $100 is possible. But it won't happen until a major retailer signs on...which I'm hoping we'll hear on Thursday.

How Digimarc plans to speed grocery checkout times
Digimarc says the new barcodes can cut scanning time for a store's checkers by as much as 50 percent.

Digital watermarking and identification firm Digimarc Corp. unveiled a new product and partnership that aims to reduce the wait at checkout lines.

The Beaverton-based company has developed Digimarc Barcodes, which contain the same information as traditional UPC codes used in retail stores, but, are not perceived by the human eye. These Digimarc Barcodes can be placed all over a product’s packaging so instead of hunting for a barcode on a product to scan at checkout, Digimarc’s technology allows the product to be scanned anywhere. No more awkwardly hunting for the barcode as the line builds behind you.

The company is teaming with Datalogic, a maker of barcode readers for retail point-of-sale systems.

“Just as UPC changed the face of retail when it was introduced almost 50 years ago, Digimarc Barcodes will have a similar impact,” said Matt Schler, General Manager of Fixed Retail Scanning for Datalogic in a written statement. “We’re thrilled to be partnering with Digimarc to introduce this new, innovative technology to retailers.”
According to Digimarc (Nasdaq: DMRC) these new barcodes can cut scanning time for a store’s checkers by as much as 50 percent.
The new technology and the partnership were announced at the National Retail Federation’s Annual Convention & Expo in New York City.
