    No updates / news to talk about. Still holding strong and adding to the position every few weeks. This is a long term winner, just a matter of time. Their Neuro Surgery technology is state of the art and is gaining wider acceptance every day (supported by 80% q over q increase in revenue on disposable products from Q4 of 2012 to Q4 of 2013. The brain drug delivery system is the huge potential short term catalyst here, if one of those 5 trials shows positive results, this thing takes off like a pharma stock after great results. The delivery system will be closely tied to any drug success. Heart surgery front is the longer term growth vehicle. A lot to like here, executive management team is getting stronger as well, and the partnership with a $ mutli-billion global medical device company is just a showing of what industry insiders think about MRI Interventions.

    Be patient, keep adding, taking advantage of dips like we have now.

    Insider buying

    by mrmeshuga Jun 6, 2014 1:37 PM

    I agree. Unless there is something we don't know about this appears to be an unwarranted sell off. There could be some hedgefund or computer system shorting this thing to death????? Perhaps once it went below a $1 there were some forced sales by institutional investors? All speculation on my part.

  • Surprised that today's news re the collaboration with laser ablation hasn't created a bit of chat. It is a great example of the marketing this company is doing. New insider purchases are very important in my book. evidence that all is back on schedule. I am going out on a limb and predicting mric will be at $2.50 by year end. I think investors forget this is really complicated stuff that mric is doing--like brain surgery duh?

    I exited MRIC in the fall around 1.40 to mess around with biotechs. I recently came back to check out the current pps and was shocked to see it this low. After looking into it and seeing that the ER yielded poor earnings primarily due to changing around how patients are operated on (due to recommendations by doctors) I decided to buy back in. This is going to bounce right back up after the next ER. IMO

    Great Technology Poor Leadership

    by grady124 Apr 11, 2014 3:57 PM

    Leadership here is excellent. This company has come a long way. What the management is bad at is hype and stock promotion. It is very apparent that management has decided to let their results do the talking. They are extremely ethical which in the long run will serve them well with the neurosurgeons they need to sell. If they get the results, which they seem to be on the verge of, the thing will soar. In the meantime they have no interest in hyping the stock to a higher level. Thus, if you believe that the product are going to be a success you have an outstanding opportunity to acquire the stock at an undervalued price. The only fault I have with them is keeping the current pink sheet listing.

  • MRI Interventions Update (OTCQB: MRIC) - ClearPoint™/Asleep DBS Procedure Creates Dramatic "Quality of Life" Improvement for Patients Suffering from Dystonia

    As I am sure you can imagine, we get to see a lot of innovative technologies here at Torrey Hills Capital by virtue of representing emerging growth companies with novel products and solutions. So when one of these technologies has the ability to dramatically change lives for the better (especially for kids!) we think it's a pretty big deal.



    Therefore we wanted to pass on a news story orignating from Cook Children's Hospital in Dallas-Ft. Worth highlighting how MRI's ClearPoint™ prodedure facilitates Asleep DBS, which can be beneficial for children who suffer from a debilitating condition known as Dystonia. The ClearPoint solution™ allows this procedure to be done with more precision (due to the ability for the surgeon to monitor the placement of the DBS implant in real time via MRI imaging) and most importantly, it allows the patient to be asleep during the procedure. The surgeon performing the procedure, Dr. Honeycutt, really gets into details about Dystonia/pediatric DBS and mentions ClearPoint™ in a very complimentary light during the news story.



    We have included the link below to this ABC syndicated news story (San Antonio ABC Affiliate KSAT) for your review: http://www.ksat.com/lifestyle/health/dbs-for-dystonia/25384440

    45% LOSS so far in 2014!

    by bob.barron2014 May 29, 2014 8:38 PM

    Wasn't a "problem", they just added an additional functionality, now instead of just being able to do brain surgeries when patients are on their backs, they can do them when patients are on their stomachs. (probably back of the head). ie. this equals additional revenue streams from procedures that weren't a possibility before.

    While the additional functionality was being implemented, many of the sites held off on their usual volume of procedures, hence the revenue from the disposables didn't grow nearly as much as it would have, I expect very strong numbers for q2.

    The ride down in PPS has been tough to watch, but most of us are long term holders in MRIC, hence this is just a chance to pick up some cheap shares.

    Nobody rings a bell at the bottom but at these fire sale prices I'm buying as much as I can. This insanity will end soon and then the tide will turn. Nothing has materially changed with the company except the share price, and for longer term investors this will turn out to be an absolute gift.

    Great Technology Poor Leadership

    by grady124 Apr 11, 2014 3:57 PM

    That's all well and good, but MRIC is a public company now and answerable to a share price and shareholders. We've been a public company for 2 years now and we average 20k shares traded a day. That's sad! I have been involved with this company since they were private. They are still operating as if they are a private company and that's the biggest problem! Why go public if you're not prepared to act like a public company (the answer to that.....much easier to raise $ with a ticker symbol). No one is asking them to "hype" or "pump" the stock. But right now there is ZERO interest or awareness of this company and that falls squarely on Managaement's shoulders.

  • All - Just listened in to the conference call that MRIC hosted. I think the big "negative" that those looking for the quick buck will zero in on is the declining revenues for the 1st quarter. CEO Kim Jenkins explained that the reason for this was that, based on extensive physician feedback, they decided to modify the ClearPoint platform to allow for a broader use of surgeries to be performed. For example, the way the frame was constructed previously, the patient was placed on their backs while surgery was performed. Many Doctors apparently have suggested to MRIC that some surgeries would be better performed if the patient were in fact lying on their stomachs. Management acted on this feedback and completed these platform revisions, which involved pulling ClearPoint out thereby losing revenue while the system modifications were completed. Per Mr. Jenkins, all modifications have been completed and now more patients than before will be able to benefit.

    Three additional Hospitals have had the ClearPoint system installed, brining the total to 34 (32 domestic and 2 in Europe).

    New clinical trial, bringing to 6 the number of trials the company is currently enrolled in.

    Further progress touted on ClearTrace, with 4th quarter of 2015 still being thrown out as the launch date.

    Interestingly, and very welcoming, Kim spoke about the company's stock price. He stated that the current price didn't reflect the progress, and potential, of MRIC and steps were being taken to rectify it. He mentioned some initiatives that the company would undertake in the next few months to reach a broader investment base. I've rarely, if ever, heard, a CEO spend time on a CC discussing their share price and how he was working on improving it. Very satisfying.

    So tomorrow there may be another dip as some traders sell based on the headline number but I'm looking at it as another fire sale on a quality company that for now, at least, continues to be overlooked.

    Good luck!

    Current management is in over their head

    by grady124 May 29, 2014 11:50 PM

    I don't think so. It IS Brain Surgery they are dealing with duh? Not simple stuff. The are doing all the right stuff. Barring another requested modification to the system revenue should perk up this Q.

    You still feeling warm and fuzzy about Kim and management? As a long time shareholder I wish I were wrong but they clearly have no idea how manage a public company and create shareholder value!
