Big news? I feel sorry for those who think these things are big news and worth loading up on. every time these guys come out with big news it reeks of trying to bring in investment more than actually turning a buck. all the past ones were fails at making money, but brought in investors. like oh look, yesterdays efforts were more of the same.. and look at all the paid pumping all over the other message boards. a few things on that. merging a poorly performing company with a failing model does not make terra worth a whack more. it drags that down until they get their act together sometime down the track or if they are lucky, the new crew gets some access to quicker capital for expansions. you do not get the money coming in from the new company for free. someone already has tabs on those efforts. its worth value ya know. or you can buy it off them but for what price?. some of the profit can pay off terras poor spending on old business plan less what investors soaked up as losses. You have said those terra $ losses was not debt, really? maybe just in a round about way now. it wasn't lepricorn money. would have been better off investing in the vegemarket. the 12 percent rise? well thats good news for those that bought earlier in the day, not so good that bought the day before. it is not because they are doing well, or are about to. its because it dropped and now others think its a good buy possibly because they think someone on the old FDA board can do some wonderful thing for them. yeah i know, highly unlikely. so what do they really want him for? maybe because there is a push for investor interest before the sell down. They dont have too long at this rate before its the end of the line. will they save the company in time is the bigger question. I hope for you DC the answer is yes.
