    What is happening to this stock, which I thought
    had great potentials before and after the merger? Can
    someone give me some idea of the stock price direction
    with expert analysis? Please do not make wild
    statements like it will go to the moon in two months, etc.

    • share price:

      We all expected that since
      the price exploded to $27 with the possible merger
      announcement, it would again go up when the actual merger
      occurred. Big problems with that: 1. While the merger is
      likely to be a great thing for the near future and
      beyond, it is a painful and costly process of
      integration. 2. Russel Index related funds dumped CBMI shares
      since CRIS could not replace it in the Russell Index.
      3. The merger and CBMI price drop made everyone
      nervous, forced margin calls, etc and created turmoil
      among investors in CBMI/CRIS. 4. MMs and other price
      manipulators took full advantage of the situation by shaking
      weak hands.

      CRIS price seems stable now. It
      probably will float between $22 and 25 for a while until
      the quiet period is over or Stryker makes an
      announcement about OP-1.

    • The main problem right now is the transition from
      CBMI to CRIS was too quick ( IMO ), made it difficult
      to trade ( I couldn't buy or sell as of this morning
      ), didn't consider the Russell impact, etc etc..
      Once it is available to be widely traded I think it
      will help, as the bio sector becomes more stable it
      will help as well.
      I don't think any "expert" will
      touch this one with an opnion on a free board until
      they have had a chance to fully evaluate the overall
      financial picture of CRIS. Not only did they have the
      merger with two private companies, but you also have to
      throw in the impact of retaining the rights to OP-1,
      My un-expert opinion of CRIS is to expect about
      anything over the next 3 months until it files a quarterly
      return and people can establish a PE, PEG, etc. Once
      that happens then I think we will see some
      Hope that helps?

      • IMO many small shareholders panicked when they
        couldn't immediately trade their shares.

        I strongly
        doubt that any insiders are able or willing to

        Once the company gets some good press, institutions
        will drive up the price dramatically. Worst case
        scenario - if the PR is lacking it may take a quarter or


      • a great deal to do with the merger non-event,
        hell, these guys get in around the 4th and then get out
        at the end of the, i understand
        where your coming from,but..)I know i wouldn't want my
        money in any fund that invests in this manner,seems
        like the dart board method would be just as good..Ahhh
        well, i'm such an expert that i disregared my own plan,
        which was to be out of CBMI at or before the merger.(I
        figured it would go down after,which it did..) IMHO we'll
        be ok if we can survive the dreaded "QUIET PERIOD"

        heshey, where are ya, still lurking??
        i don't put anyone on ignore, might miss
