BOSTON, June 11, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- SoundView Technology Group: We attended the NXT-ID (OTCQB:NXTD) (OTCBB: NXTD) Wocket(TM) smart wallet launch event in NYC on May 28th and were pleased with the number of features present in the device demonstrated and encouraged by early consumer reaction to the Wocket.
Just one week later we heard Rudy Giuliani talk about how cyber crime has reached "crisis proportions" because "all our sensitive data is in the cloud for criminals to access." His sentiment helps explain why a secure device like the Wocket will be a preferred solution for sensitive financial and other key data.
NXT-ID is offering pre-orders for the Wocket smart wallet (www.wocketwallet.com) at $149 and the first shipments to customers are planned for late September. After a review we are keeping our 2014 forecast of 40,000 units and will be evaluating consumer response in order to validate our longer term projects.
We're also introducing a longer term intrinsic value (IV) estimate of $20.55 for 2015. With a current IV estimate of $11.70 we think growth investors will find the risk/reward of this situation to be attractive.
We previously stated in a prior update, " We believe in the digital conversion of our "wallet" over time and know that mobile devices alone won't be the answer for many years due to power limits, lack of privacy and security concerns. Nobody knows if the NXT-ID Wocket is going to be "the one" but we do know that so far it's the most well designed product we have seen that is coming to market this year."
