At what price would neo become viable for mfg's?
This is a general question, and I am not sure if anyone will want to answer, but is what is the price for neo and other REA's that they become attractive to OEMs and mfgs? Considering the stratification of shipping costs, eventual and inevitable increases in shipping, and the desire for manufacturers to differentiate products, I'm pretty sure someone has done the math, would anyone care to share?
Also, what kind of price stability are mfgs looking at? If neo hits the desired price point, would they want to make sure they can lock in prices with futures contracts, or are they looking at the current offered prices and tracking for a period (3/6/12/24 months for example)?
Mainly curious because some prototypes have been chucked to the dustbins due to the meteoric increase in REA prices over the last few years, some of which looked very promising.
