I listened to the interview this morning and only heard it one time. The word "partner" was used one time at the end of the interview. And in the context I heard, I didn't get the impression that any partnership deal was in the works. It was like, Well we want to partner but...........
I sincerely hope they have more, but it's getting harder and harder to believe.
C'est la vie
This list is very impressive but it does not give shareholders any ideas about the value or validity of the company. We need real facts on the company not on her personal background.
I heard partners mentioned in the interview one time. Partners as described by her is referring to more than one project. Not trying to downplay the news as I see this as a positive moving forward, but let’s not go overboard with how may times it was said.
Keep telling yourself that while you keeping losing more each day. You have to either 1 - be Robin or 2 - be an employees taking a big salary or 3 - be family of hers.
I'm with JCA. Her performance has been pathetic in term of PPS and as a stockholder that is my only concern. She has done nothing as far as PPS for shareholders and has even taken 90% of my shares that I bought, not received as options. She should step down immediately.
Of all the stock I track this is the only one down today on such a big day in the market. And this is not a sole example. Something is wrong somewhere.
That is hilarious. So now we know that Robin's middle name is Sue. Perhaps she should have gotten a degree in law to go with her other degrees. But to be serious, everyone thinks that Donald Trump is a genius because he graduated from the Wharton school of business. Can you imagine how smart they would think he is if he also had a medical degree from Yale? Maybe Robin should call him up to ask for some help in financing the clinical trials.
Sentiment: Strong Buy
"Just because the PPS has fallen ........ doesn't mean you should blame the PPS on Robin Smith." - REALLY. If the PPS of a stock is not the responsibility of the CEO just whose responsibility is it ? CEO's of Fortune 500 companies have been fired for lesser loss of shareholder value than what we have experienced with NBS.
How can you then state " I think she does a good job of explaining what the company does" and in your very next sentence state "Which I think is hard for a lot of people to grasp". If she could comprehensively relate the NBS story/science it would not be so hard for the investment community to understand. Perhaps 'accept' is a better word than 'understand'. Granted, it's 1) Science 2) a new innovative approach to health care and 3) contrarian to the big pharma philosophy of selling pills to treat symptoms of health issues but if Robin really wants to change the course of health care she is in for a the fight of her life against big pharma and needs to be able to accurately deliver the NBS science. As CEO she needs to be looking to deliver a knockout punch every step of the way because if she draws this out to a twelve round fight she will eventually succumb due to financing.
I'll give her credit for building a strong team of esteemed and visionary scientists and the progress made on the science front but it seems the business side of NBS has been left behind. Her MBA alone has not proven fruitful and I question her business judgment.
You're correct. I misworded the 200%. I meant to say the pps was 200% higher only 15 months ago. The point being Dr. Smith has been terrible for shareholder value. Indisputable fact. She took over in 2006 and we currently sit around our all-time lows. That is not an impressive record of a nearly 9-year tenure.
Damn right JC. Couldn't have said it better. There is a reason all of the shorts are still neck deep in this stock. They're waiting for the dilution shoe to drop. The market knows, by the tune of 2.6 million short shares that the likelihood of dilution is extremely high and there going to reap even further gains when it happens and unfortunately they haven't been wrong so far.
kittysue: I find it amusing that the viper has invited you to join his facebook "thing" where discussion is encouraged. LOL you will find that anyone with a view other than vipers will be declared a basher and banned from his board.
Talk about preaching on the YMB. You've obviously not lost your #$%$ on this stock like the rest of us. A creative way to finance the melanoma trial? They leveraged the #$%$ out of the company for a loan that they won't be able to afford to pay back in another 3 months. A deeper pipeline doesn't mean squat if they can't afford to fund the trials. The CEO and the company ARE completely to blame for the PPS and I would be happy to sell if they hadn't made an absolute joke of the share price. You're absolutely right the company is where it is today because of Dr. Smith, in the #$%$.
kittysue: it's a fact that the CEO is uniquely qualified to lead this company. You're the only one here who understands that so I ask why you bother to post. nothing said here will change the perception of NBS or, for that matter, affect the price of the stock. I'm here because I'm amused easily and have nothing else to do.
