End, you're talking as if what you say is in the best interest of Geron investors. No, I sincerely disagree with it. I am neither frustrated nor what I argue is unreasonable. To see only the plus side is not a proper guidance to investors because you may then be misleading them. Besides that, this is a platform to discuss ALL sides, positive AND negative, of an issue that affect the SP performance or the company we have invested in. While I understand your points fully, I simply can't agree with everything you say.
Please read my post titled, "Why Would The FDA keep The Hold". Your point of looking only positively, and keeping your mind closed to look to the other side of management is wrong, plainly wrong! Through my posts I have presented my arguments to support my contention that the FDA alone can't be blamed for the hold, it has to be something the Geron management did to which it has remained nontransparent to us shareholders (as usual).
By the way, if you have been a long investor , did you know that the Geron management never took shareholders' vote (or even consensus, if you argue a vote was not required) for disposing off the stem-cell portfolio so cheap to BioTime? Was it fair to shareholders? And, how many times did this management hold shareholder meetings vis-a-vis conference call for WS buddies? Why does Scarlett want to talk to WS buddies and never to shareholders?
Buddy, to mislead other investors by showing sunshine where there is darkness is a form of lie or distortion. Put all the cards on the table and guide others with true wisdom, not just one-sided wisdom. And, for God's sake, learn to respect others' sincere opinions and not call those as innuendos. We, on the other side are as interested in the growth of the company as you, and not any less.!! And, that is also my message to those who are critical of my views.
It's friday, low volume, not much selling, or buying. And on a Friday, only 7cents down from Mondays low. Doesn't sound like much to panic over. So why does it seem like the bashers are the only ones on the board today posting there BS?. .. . Because longs have no worries. Alcatel is doing fine with the turnaround sift plan. Bashers don't like it. ....to bad
The answerman: Stiffmeistir.. .. Knows all
Sentiment: Strong Buy

Yes, it has been painful being a shareholder of FVE. But at the end of the day, it comes down to risk reward. Yes the company has issues of related party, but so does company's like Travel America (TA), where I believe the Portnoys are involved, and that is trading close to its 52 week high. Like FVE, shareholders are increasing the scrutiny on related party dealings and the market has factored in a huge discount compared to peers for the related party structure.
At the end of the day, the company is trading at a fraction of its property/liquidation value, profitable, has very little debt, is in a growth industry, and virtually has no chance of bankruptcy. So like TA, it will probably always trade at a discount to peers, but it is very possible FVE can trade back towards their 52 week high when they get these reporting issues out of the way. So risk reward looks pretty compelling here to me.
220,000 of 2,900,000 retail stores in US = 7.5% of all stores in U.S. and let's say this is 25% of world
220,000 times on AVERAGE 10 per store (some 2-3, some 20-40) = 2,200,000 readers times $500 per reader = $1,100,000,000 or $1.1 Billion in revenues for 7.5% - 100% of US is worth $14.6 Billion and world would be $14.6 times 4 = $58.4 Billion - if OTIV gets 1% of that per year = $580.4 million times a p/s ratio of 8 = $4.7 Billion market cap for OTIV is actually very conservative, not counting patents or P/E ratio

But I was right and that is all that matters just like BQI. You have been pumping to no avail because you're a glorified bagholder that lost everything. Right bdmaccg?
If BTU were a Solar stock, it would have jump 20-30% on the NEWS, but it is a dirty coal, then, it drops lower and lower!!! LOL LOL
Nice evaluation Poles. Nothing wrong with making some money I always say. Its a nice pop. . I can not argue with the technical's. But I think cme is a keeper this time Poles. Especially with a head start of a number of dollars. Buying it here is a bit risky for most. But I would STILL say its a BUY( on any weakness)Or just go hog wild and buy it.
A set of 6 300 count bottles went up from $430.00 to $810.00 before my eyes in 5 minutes. I stopped bidding there because I know there are people out there who need it more than I do. What the FDA is doing to people suffering out there is criminal. I agree with LutherTiggs.... the FDA is big Pharma's biotch. This sucks for those with inflammatory bowel disease(nasty business, that).
