I'm always on the look out for positive & inspirational sites and I'm so glad to have found this - you're doing a great job, keep it up
I've decided to make a change in my life. I want to be more positive. If ATRS goes up to $3.35 over the next year, that would be a 10% return! Compare that rate of return to a CD. We could easily get to $3.35! (Assuming things fall our way). Cheers
Sentiment: Strong Buy
You just proved your self as not so smart....
You said you went on GALE at 3 and sold at 5, guess what GALE is 1.80 so you might have been a bigger pumper.
ATRS went over $5 twice in this time period, so you could have sold it too.
Don't blame other for YOUR mistakes.
td are you saying that homebuilders numbers are speculation. He is not making up these numbers..he gets them on a screen. Unless off course you think he's a pumper because the numbers look to good.
ginnypv15 you might be right at some point in the future but I waited 2 1/2 years with ATRS and I did not want to wait another 2-3 years when I could be invested in something that has more potential in the next year.
Believe me, I listened and dreamed along with all the Pumpers on the ATRS board.
It not only cost me a lot of money by getting sucked in but I even recommended it to my close friends who got in in the high 4's.
One of my friends purchased 80,000 shares at $4.75 PPS.
Now I feel rotten about doing that. I did my DD on ATRS but the company hardly motivates it's stock. I guess there isn't a lot to say to motivate it.
I expected along with a lot of investors that the launch of OXEY was going to do the trick.
That lasted 1/2 hour the morning of the announcement. Then it dove immediately afterwards.
Then they said that after the first of the year when the sales force was out selling the product would move the stock price..
That did nothing for the stock or the PPS!
Now after reading more on ATRS recently, the near term (one year out) looks bleak when, like you say yourself, the possible time frame for a nice rise in PPS is most likely 2-3 years out.
My feeling for the best outcome with ATRS is a Buy-Out which makes a lot more sense than continuing to hold it for another 2-3 years!
The weekly prescription estimates we've been seeing will have light shed on them once we get the Q1 earnings numbers. That's when reality meets speculation. At that juncture we'll know how directionally sound the weekly estimates have been from homebuilder_tracker. I'm guessing the earnings call will be the week of 5/5, so we don't have much longer to wait.
The real question is can you trust I'm me? I'm not always certain myself.
Why do I post? Partly a coping mechanism as we longs wait ever so patiently for our just rewards. The other part is just social pathology, I think ;/
"Shawdowplay1, I always respected you and your opinions but you really fell flat on your face with ATRS!!!
I listened to you for 2 1/2 years and it cost me a lot of money! (meaning ATRS)
I purchased GALE in the low 3's and did get out at $5.00 give or take a few cents.
If you touted GALE when it was $4.00-$6.00 PPS your were dead wrong again!"
If I'm wrong, I apologize!
I did not check your posts with GALE!
If you read my post correctly I was speaking about ATRS.
I first purchased it at $3.45 all the way up to the low $5's.
I followed your posts on the ATRS message board because your posts made me fall in love with ATRS.
Instead of taking a nice profit near it's high, your posts made me want to continue to holding the stock.
You pumped it along with a lot of other people on the ATRS board.
But you were always my #1 poster because you made a lot of sense to me.
Go back to that board and you will see my reply posts to your posts.
All the great things that ATRS was supposed to happen that was going to increase it's PPS did nothing and look at it now.
A stagnant PPS for 2 1/2 years.
There were a lot of other people who Pumped on that board all the time and now what?
People who I thought were full of S___ were actually right sometimes.
HALO took a huge dive from it's top.
So when I say I feel bad for the holders of GALE I mean it.
I would not be in GALE anymore.
There are a lot of other Biotechs such as DEPO (even though it really doesn't fill the mode of a Biotech) to put you money into.
If my words "Fell on your face" hurt your feelings, that was not my intent.
I just see so many PITFALLS in investing in GALE at this point!
It may turn around in the future but presently there are way to many negatives with GALE at the present time.
Please remember these script numbers aren't so much "released" (which has an offical sound to it), as posted by a helpful person. Unless of course, he's actually a shill for someone or another, and asro-turffing us with fantasy numbers.
Don't you love trusting random strangers in a forum known to thrive on deception?
Sure hope May 5th-ish tells a strong tale
