    Is Sammy gone? A little statistical lesson...

    First, I am supportive of this company. The stock has been abused by short sellers. I am simply trying to make sure that retail investors coming in got a fair picture of where NSPH is at. Yes, I believe the share price should be much higher. I believe NSPH could fetch a multiple of its current price from M&A, especially once ultrasensitive troponin gets approval for risk stratification and cardiac disease progression because NSPH will have a cardiac care diagnostic franchise at that point with high value density because cardiac care drives HUGE healthcare costs. I'd like to see it remain a standalone company, but I could live with the right M&A.

    I have a little over 50K shares. I've posted my positions over time, simply to make clear to other investors that I have as much, if not more proportionately, skin in the game as anyone.

    I like this company. I like the founders and early stage investors. I am an NU / Kellogg alum and this company spun out of NU. I live in Chicago and have spent years trying to help the area better develop its technology cluster. For me, there's more to it than a trade. I believe that people who understand the importance of technology and innovation simply must vote their values with their wallets and support good companies like this.

    We'll see how it unfolds. Sammy would like to have everyone believe that NSPH is screwed. The reality is that NSPH's value increases as MDx takes hold and the category grows. Whether it is realized as a standalone or is acquired, only time will tell.
