Mr Thompson-If you are an outstanding leader, prove us critics wrong about the direction of the company with the following:
-Encourage the board to do away with the ridiculous stock options which reward management for results which continually lower the stock price. Stock options at every other company are a reward to management for actions that increase shareholder value and none of us have ever seen this situation before where company leaders sell stock at all time lows undermining market confidence in their companies.
-Show us how you can make huge profits with the amazing technologies you control. If your burning passion is to see more and more patients treated with cyberknife and TOMO and you are wise enough to control the costs of providing them, you will be doing great service to the world.
-If you can't do any of this, be good enough to step aside and let the company find someone who can.
Company leaders pay no attention to message boards-but they should if the messages are truthful and earnest.I hope someone will show this to Euan Thompson, and that he will react to it.
Down day for stocks in general so far. Medical robotic stocks: ISRG, MAKO,HNSN all up nicely. ARAY-robotic stock diluted with non robotic TOMO-down. Varian-non robotic but stock up. Any guesses why?
Some interesting things are stirring in the background with the company. Exactly what form they will take and when they will surface is not clear. Why bring this up? Just to show I don't always post negative stuff to beaten down stockholders.The motivation has never changed-better treatment for more patients.
Check out yyy's post from Reno cyberknife about pancreatic cancer. Why can't ARAY scream that from the rooftops somehow so everybody knows about it. Most people think pancreatic is a short time death sentence. Then read my post "something positive". All those out there treating patients, many probably way under water on stock investment, are saving and improving lives. How can there be more of them? The cyberknife I was treated on in Naples, Florida, and the building it is in, were donated to the local hospital group by a wealthy family. Even in these times some people have the means to donate huge amounts to colleges,etc. How about they donate some to an amazing local technology to fight cancer in the best way. Forgive me-I'm passionate about this.
Birdbob - I agree with you sentiment and that would be nice, however:
Do crooks stop robbing and mugging you if you ask nicely?
Perhaps more to the point do rapists zip up their pants and leave you untouched simply by asking them nicely too?
I don't think so, so why would Euan do what you are asking?
While it would be nice if he did, it ain't going to happen, no matter howe nicely you ask.
And, oh yeah, they monitor this board. Hello ARAY spy.
Euan is a pig at the trough...he can't help himself, enrich himself and screw shareholders...he will move on win he gets dumped with a big payday and golden handshake..a real crappy CEO
I'll repeat a post from another recent thread which is vital to understand-from a wise CEO of the large successful company I worked for my first ten years-"Growth, without profits, is a cancer that will destroy the company that permits it." What appropriate wording for the business ARAY is in.
