Update on Hauppauge Digital Inc. ($HAUP)

In December we did a post on a lawsuit that had been filed against Hauppauge Digital Inc. ($HAUP): a Verified Complaint to Compel Inspection of Books and Records in Delaware Chancery Court.

Regarding Hauppauge Digital Inc. (HAUP), see also these posts from other bloggers:
There have been some new developments in the case. The court granted Plaintiff a default judgment on April 24th:

Then, at the beginning of June, Hauppauge filed a motion to set aside the default judgment.

The motion was granted, and the default judgment has been set aside:


Conclusion:

I conclude that Hauppauge has met its burden of showing excusable neglect, a meritorious defense and that Rivest will not suffer substantial prejudice if the Motion is granted.39 However, recognizing that Section 220 actions are intended to be summary proceedings,40 and given the delays that have occurred related to this Section 220 action, I intend, once this report becomes final, to ensure that this matter proceeds as expeditiously as possible in the future.

Why Housing Could Be One of the Best-Performing Asset Classes of the 2020s

Robert Shiller was one of the first researchers to ever assemble the long-term data on U.S. housing prices. This shows the real (after-inflation) change in prices going back to the start of the 20th century: I’m not sure how accurate the numbers are pre-WWII or so but you can see the values are all over the map in terms of long-term cycles. This is me having fun with numbers but it’s crazy to look at this dat...

JPMorgan Asset Management’s new On The Minds of Investors piece takes a look at “framing”, a behavioral bias that affects our judgments about market prices. Where you choose to start counting from will have a big impact on how you feel and what arguments will appeal to you. For instance: What level of returns should we expect from equity markets? The answer changes depending on the time period – when i...

Do Republicans’ Children Use TikTok?

Do Republicans’ children use TikTok? Of course they do. Which is why I think it’s more likely that Microsoft gets to buy the company as opposed to the app being shut down. Let me catch you up on what’s going on… This weekend’s episode of my podcast was a deep dive into TikTok and the opportunity for US investors in Chinese technology stocks. Shortly after it came out, the news broke that the ...
