Shorts and MM's have no choice but to try to drive price as low as possible going into CC. If management handles expectations well they will be butchered, if management doesn't longs will have a long wait [perhaps a year] to get above $5 pps. I have been commenting for a year now about their/managements marketing and finance prowess. It appears with the deal with Cowens they have the finance side controlled, we are about to see about the marketing side.............
They are not marketing it yet so we won't see how well they are handling marketing. Repeat after me. They are in the early stages of their 1 year commercialization phase. They are working off of demand from early adopters and expect to be able to place 200 systems in the US and 75 in Germany. Their marketing has not really even begun yet.
I believe that Q2 will not show significant sales because they had none in April to allow time to work on the initial placements practical application however, as I have said, it will be interesting to see how they fair with Q2 analyst estimates. I don't know about the below $5 for a year thought, I don't see it below 5 for that long when they complete commercialization in Q1 2013 and start increasing sales and possibly turning a profit at the end of Q2 2013 a year from now, I see it above $5.
