    The Correlation Between Market Cap and Fairy Tales:

    One fairy tale bumped up the price by $0.40 in two days. Multiply $0.40 times 27,800,000 shares outstanding and the "take away" is that one fairy tale magically generated $11,120,000 in market cap in two days. Given the data that exists so far, one can only speculate on how high 2, 3, 4, or more fairy tales could run this thing.

    Buckeye, I suggest you consider writing a fairy tale. This would permit shareholders and others to further evaluate this fairy tale market cap correlation relationship. We may really be on to something here. Maybe, just maybe, the "magic eraser" magic was somehow transferred to "fairy tale" magic.

    It seems worth a try anyway.

    • Why don't you ask Doctors at Massachusetts General Hospital who treated victims in Boston if they believe in fairy tales. IMO It's called vision which you can't put a market cap price on. The same reason why Orphan drug companies and developmental stage medical device company's sell at premium prices Until your complains about low margin tissue issues can be replaced by suitable alternatives. They still can be a life saver. How much more are you shorting?

      Sentiment: Hold

        It is very laudable for CRY to make tissue products. But the last I knew CRY wasn't a a non profit. CRY should be permitted to make a profit from tissue sales. Probably a market rate profit similar to a utility that is regulated. But it seems to me that CRY should increase the price of everything in their tissue line by roughly 10%. Overall, sales of some products may fall off a bit, but then people could get the product (albeit at a higher price), and CRY could earn a profit. So IMO CRY should either quit selling tissue, or make some profit from it. Hopefully for CRY they would be able to continue making it as well as make a reasonable profit as well. I think though that tissue was Steve's baby from day one, and he just can't let go of it. It's part and parcel of his DNA. Do your own due diligence.

      • Good point! During CRY's bull run in 2008, we actually had doctors on this board raving about some of CRY's products! ( I wouldn't be surprised to see that again especially in 2014.) I also think that one of the reasons CRY sells so much Bioglue is Cardial Vascular surgeons really appreciate the fact that CRY goes the extra mile with the tissue business. CRY is about the only guys in the country that have it.
