For clarity's ssake, why don't the "fringe-lunatics" on Geron's Stock Message Board come up with a better temporary tock symbol for BioTime Acquisition Corporation, since "BAC" is already in use by Bank of America on the NYSE?
Here's my suggestion......BTXAC......since BioTime's symbol is BTX....and AC is a natural for Acquisition Corporation. At any rate, henceforth, when referring to BioTime Acquisition Corporation, I will use BTXAC.
One more thing, while I'm on the subject of BTXAC.......don't allow yourselves to become too worried and caught up in anything involving Geron's and BioTime's new proposal. It is NOT a done deal. Either company, Geron or BioTime, can nix the proposal......and incur a monetary default payment.....at any time prior to finalization.
It is still possible for a much deeper-pocketed entity to step in with a much more lucrative offer than the one proffered by BioTime........and don't think Geron Corporation wouldn't give BioTime the "bum's rush" should that happen.
Just saying........don't get thy horses before thy carts.
My Strong Buy Sentiment Disclosure is for Geron Corporation, only......and has no connection to neither BioTime nor BioTime Acquisition Corporation.
A thought directed towards "nom_de_plune", and his/her "Just buy the damnnnnm stock!", post........When you've purchased 102,600 shares of Geron, as I have, I might consider you qualified to make comments pertaining to the number of shares one should own. Until then, however, I shall heed my OWN counsel in that regard.
