That's another point I disagree with Smalls and Blowcamp. Eecp is, at best, a highly doubtful source of major new revenue. For that reason MA is the quickest way to generate revenue that investors will value. Management s past with poor handling of acquisitions is important but does not mean that it's not the prudent and necessary move now.
The issue with an Merger or Acquisition is that MA doesn't have a very good track record with MAs. It is yet another sore spot for long-term investors.
I'm sure Smalls is a very intelligent fellow, I just don't agree with all his opinions on VASO. Take a share buyback for instance: Prior to the reuptake of the GEHC, and 2015 guidance on profitability, a buyback would imho have been a risky corporate strategy. It would not have bestowed confidence, but only a hollow bandaid. Paired with profitability going forward, and GEHC cash flow, a buyback now would supply the stock support,and more importantly true outward confidence by management. Throw in some market purchases by insiders, and then the real investors might stand up and take notice! With all of this said, I would still back burner any buybacks that would lesson the quality of a truely accretive MA they can pull off.
for those who wanted to keep buying at these prices - what is stopping you?
if your assumptions about the price moving up significantly are correct - why would you wait for another cent or two decrease and risk someone else scooping these up and then having to chase the ASK?
i am not advocating buying or selling but am questioning those who suggest they are buying aggressively when the volume and BID/ASK do not support the comments
I agree with the indifference of management to shareholders. When I communicate with other managers from different companies their responses are wholehearted while my last response from Dr. Ma when asked about compensation to GEHC salesforce his response was: "half and half" and that was it--cut and dry!!!. My other email about what they are doing to attract new shareholders didn't get a reply.
It's a good think we have the Cramer of the Vaso Message Board to let us know that Vaso is down this morning on low volume. Not many of us here could have figured that out.
thanks for the thoughts. even your post was given a thumbs down. that says a lot about the agenda by some on here when just politely thanking someone for their opinion is reacted to negatively.
for any that have been around for awhile, i think they would generally agree that my interests lie in the long term success of the shareholders/stock price. this is not a short term flip for me and never has been. while i have provided situations where it would be profitable to do so, i havent. however, i still maintain that the last three years and mgmt indifference to shareholders (specifically stock price) is creating a situation where that may be the only viable, profitable path. if one considers the last 3 years - that has been the only way to make money and provide security with the stock. this has been a DIRECT result of mgmt indifference or misunderstanding of how the market works/shareholder involvement
GEHC sales force receives commissions 50% when vaso receives .5 commission from G.E. and the other half when product is accepted by the buyer. Also I want to express my opinion re: SMALLS--I don't understand why any of the message boarders rip him on their posts. I have always found his posts to be very professional and clear for the direction the company should be headed. He is a long term holder and he has a right to express his opinion of what management should be doing for shareholders.
Im into long term value appreciation with buyout potential or eventual income producing. I have no interest in a P&D scheme.
I have contacted elected representatives at the state and local level with cost/benefit analyses of the comepting procedures/therapues and how it is in the best interest of patients, providers, and the government to move EECP to the forefront. I ha e contact clinics in the US who advocate for the procedure and discussed whst more could be done through the company and to push CMS. I have tweeted and retweeted studies and trials. I have spoken one on one with Ma several times on how to connect with shareholders and how to more clearly engage via company communication and CCs. I have also warned about the pitfalls of ignoring stock price or alienating those that appear to be "daytraders" when all have the same long term interests. Some of it was taken to heart. Some ignored.
This company has massively failed the at large shareholders and continue to do so. The last buyback was successful in removing Dempsey but the company failed to execute and then failed to effectively communicate and all of the money spent was waeted. They have a stronger cash position now and a lower stock price. It makes more sense now to renew buyback to demonstrate alignment. Was that discussed at the CC...? How are they going to demonstrate their alignment other than throwing out a line in the CC? Why must they wait for legal action before they are stirred?
You want real movement forward - you speak to Ma and ask that one question. How are they going to demonstrate/prove alignment.
Few have more to gain then you do! Start tweeting lIke a mad man! It's all for lack promotion! 38 million cash and deferred, postive EPS, less than 1x earnings!!!! Start the pump minus the dump!
if i was the third largest - why would you be investing here? further - if you believed that - why would you not be listening to one of the largest investors?
Ma is the third largest behind the Syrbnik brothers. what i have said i had more shares than all but those three listed. i know several private shareholders that have substantially larger positions than me. however, with all the shares being provided to the BOD - that may no longer be the case as they have been getting them in large amounts.
VASO has had significant press over the years but have not been able to move EECP forward with that press or with Ma at the helm. when they focused on GEHC and he consistently could not articulate the strategy/vision or answer basic questions on pipeline, business unit results, or moving deferred revenues to positive net income - they lost the few analysts that were covering the stock. even with KSCA hired to promote on WS - they have lost those analysts.
the market and every trade is always relative to perspective of the buyers and sellers. are you just parroting points i have made prior or tweaking them a little to seem original? i posted earlier the silver lining was the selling was being absorbed (for now) and the fact the price was moving up with these big sells is a positive. however, the fact remains that someone with a very large position is liquidating or dramatically decreasing their position in what should be a major inflection point for the company/stock price. what does that say about faith in mgmt when a large holder takes any "strength" to get out when the company should be poised for higher returns...? it is a complete show of no faith and it is a direct result of the failures of mgmt the last three years.
if one spoke to other large shareholders - they would realize and understand the frustration and reasons for leaving. some are more open about their positions/strategies on this board while most remain guarded.
I won't go that far, but it's closer to that than the notion that "Wall street" is watching management's every move. The're are zero institutions here, and the idea that Smalls is like the third largest holder says everything. The biggest problem with VASO is lack of press, not bad press. This equity has become a Peter Lynch type investment, potentially a 10 bagger!
Yesterday you can be quoted as saying that VASO is "significantly undervalued"? And then today, angry Chicken little is back. Hope those new investors don't end up a flip flopper like you!
Strength is relative chump. The fact that a seller was able to find a buyer for 100k of vaso without a steep discount is strong.
Reseller, the absolute stupidity of your market comments makes is a certainty that you are an employee of vaso, and more than likely top management. Traded into strength? You been reading investing 101 or trading for dummies?
What strength are you talking about.? The stock is up about a penny or 2 from pre CC trading. And has been cut in half from the yearly high. You seem to have the same appreciation for #'s that Ma does when he says his interests are aligned with shareholders.
If you really want to help share price here, you might consider not posting. Potential investors may read your posts and say if this is the voice of the advocates here, i will take a pass..................FUMA
Or maybe someone who built a position in the last couple months traded into some strength and made a couple grand? I'm sorry that they pulled the plug on you, but I can't really blame them, always to the dark side. As the lead shareholder shouldn't you be promoting VASO?
100K at $0.185 yesterday. 100K at $0.19 today . And another 85K at $0.19 now. Another long term investor is turning in the chips. This in the midst of a return to profitability and strong guidance (or as strong as they have ever provided) for current year. What does that say about trust for current mgmt...?
The silver lining is this could be the seller who has been bleeding the ASK for the last several months and finally has the volume to get out completely without tanking. If that is the case - there should be a natural bounce when those shares have been absorbed. Im not willing to put any more capital into this until mgmt starts being serious about shareholder value
