2016-11-16 04:40:17

LightwaveRF Interims - It is screwed, this company is surely going bust

2016-05-26 02:19:02

LightwaveRF - an RNS which misleads

2016-05-25 01:04:40

I have picked up LightwaveRF (LWRF) before for the way that it mangles the English language in its statements. It makes Chris Oil look like John Le Carre. Back in July 2015 I took its language mangling as an intent to gloss over the grim reality and said it was a Red Flag The shares have duly collapsed from 38p to 15p and today it serves up another RNS which is misleading. It is bullshit.
