If you can read charts and options, u should know this, so stop fretting and worrying and many of you being negative, I don't think I've seen a board with so many "negative longs." If it makes you feel better, just tell yourselves what a vile "pumper" I am! GL!
Sentiment: Strong Buy
Some investors are venting because the MMs have not put any pressure on those shorts positions (liquidity on the upside). Someone seems more bent on getting investors who help through or bought during the approval period to sell to shorts at low prices. The news and information also does not support the decline in price. This is implies that shorts are spreading rumors through the informal communication channels in their effort to depress price. Investors confidence is suffering as a result. They have been at this almost everyday and the MMs are not putting any pressure on them to provide upward liquidity to the stock. Them just waiting for for small investors to sell to a group of unscrupulous shorts is really unfair.
Scott, I don't understand why you bailed out. If you hold long enough you will make money. I understand the concept of cutting your losses but ATRS is not going to zero any time soon.
Traders who set stop losses in ATRS, mentally or literally, are the reason why this is whacked senselessly by manipulators, because they know that they can more than cover their shorts by stop loss triggers and inflict losses on those weak hands.
Scott's madness last few weeks.
1. comes in this board and starts hollering about an imminent offering/secondary at $4 (this is before FDA decision at end of Sept). he calls all kinds of names for people not recognizing that. says Jack would intentionally would do an offering to 'reward' the institutions w/ cheap shares.
result: nothing happens.
SM: didn't recognize that it was end of quarter .. funds re-balancing...
2. multiple times he states a BO is coming at end of year, labeling Jack as a 'bird dog'. I guess this has been ongoing since 2012.
result: we will see.
SM: for the longest time, he states a BO.... just few days ago, he has loosened up a bit saying 1) BO, or 2) major PFE partnership. I guess he's giving himself one more option to be right, just in case BO doesn't happen.
3. buys and then sells. I think in the past 2 months, he's bought shares and then sold them almost immediately. Last time being last week losing $1250 or so. He's been holding a lot of Nov 5 call options.. last week, he now has Dec 5 call options.
result: we know the result by looking at pps. we are at 3.91 for god sake
SM: he publishes SA article... buys the stock... then sells out almost immediately, giving many people ammunition to call him pump/dump guy... last week, he buys and sells within 1-2 days I think... and then justifies by converting some into Dec call option.
I have followed Scott on other stocks and has done well for me, but for ATRS, I think Scott loses a lot of credibility thus far...
of course, one day we will get bought out and he will come back to the board
guess Scott's post "longs going to be happy very very soon"...
he's not talking about today.... :)
c'mon all.. we knew we would fill in the gap at 4.06.... the reason why we could not get over the hump in the 4.1's...
will it hit $3'9's..? maybe....
we need to close in the 4.1's today otherwise, good chance it will hit $3's tomorrow
sad but true..
ryman, whogo who sold in $5's look mighty smart to me.... i sure wish i did and jump back in here at this $4 level...
management better have some calming words on 4th Q call..
from $5's to possibly $3's w/ FDA approval.. not unheard of ... but very very surprising for this low beta stock
scott i dont know what you're seeing but the technicals don't look good at all. i added 1400 shares this week at 4.125 BUT i sold december 5 calls just to be safe. MACD is negative and we have no support whatsoever and the volume on the options market has been nonexistent...
but one of your articles could prop up MACD really fast...good luck...
