I just noticed the added comment on her blog today. Smart woman!
**NOTE: As you can see, I’m a risk taker. And as such, I have purchased a small amount of ACT stock- but it’s my vision I’m betting on and would never let greed override my responsibility to tell the truth about my clinical trial experience. I don’t have a clue as to whether this is a good investment or not, even if my vision does improve, as this is a very early stage of the clinical trial process.**
She said that her prior research into the company and it's progress and results had prompted her to pursue her long-shot dream of getting into the trials. We already know that she personally liked what she had been reading. Just as many of us have liked what we have been reading. We come to the ACTC messageboard because we believe in the company's strategies and skills and want to read more and more about their progress. Unlike some who have no real basis or "feel" for what is happening here. They are negative or overly cautious and stoic. It is nothing but another stock, to them. Why shouldn't she invest in ACTC? She chose it to be a part of her future, long ago.
it doesn't matter what I think... its about perception and it would have been prudent to ban the buying of stock..if you are so confident perhaps we should contact the SEC and see what their opinion is...I don't really want to do that but chit has a way of gettin out
completely disagree with this
she has a confict of interest and her blog wields too much power.
regardless of intention or lack of devious plans
the potential for impropriety is huge....Consider this another blunder by well-paid management for allowing this
It would be great for investors to get first hand reports on progress being experienced by Maurie, but this would only be possible if she did not sign off on a non-disclosure agreement with the sponsor (ACTC). Otherwise 1st amendment rights prevail.
You do not need to go to the post by a patient, which may not be authentic. The RPE cells were injected in the patient body by none other than Wills Eye physician who is also Head of Opthalmaology at Jefferson Medical College in Philadelphia. A person of such a stature wouldn't have done so without being convinced of a reasonable success. This is not the stuff for bloddy day traders to advise any one if it was successful or not!! If such a trader has reasonably high IQ, he wouldn't argue about prospects for the treatment!! A smart guy would only go by who did it.
trying to make a few bucks while she can't see for sh't....How dare she try to make some money while being a captive of her vision impairment...What is this world coming to? Talk about insider trading !!!! LOL LOL LOL. But seriously, I hope like heck that her 100 K injection really works wonders for her, and thus others in the future. Odds are, with her blindness, her earning potential has been stifled, take it from one who knows. Good Luck Maurie Hill, we are all pulling for you darlin'.
