    Why is this board so dead?

    With this big jump on relatively low volume today, I thought I would check the MB I have held stock since 1/12 at $21 and after my due diligence felt considerable confidence in the long term prospects, so didn't feel compelled to check the MB or post. Perhaps other investors feel a similar confidence or maybe its just that the idiot pump and jabber posters haven't found the board so serious investors don't need to keep defending like on other boards. In any case, we ought to agree to keep our collective eyes on news and info each other can appreciate and share. Thanks for the reminder. Happy fireworks. I feel like mine started early with more than half a dozen holdings up over 7% today.

      heading for ccooler part of the USA next week TX to PA. hate coming back though.
      MDSO could be a takeover target.lots of share dilution howeer. but heck....money talks and mgmnt walks.

    • The big contract is the start of a huge year for EDC companies and I expect mdso will buy up some of their smaller competitors like DATA, BIOC and some private fast growing edc companies. There currency is valued at over 800 million dollars and I'm sure CERN or SAP are taking notice.

      • This jump in growth is a nice announcement from MDSO. Sell on the News and wait for the stock to go back to $33 to buy more as it heads to $40.

        As for your comments above - Acquisitions are probably in MDSO's plan, but DATA and BIOC don't make any sense. They are not complementary technologies, but rather they are overlapping. Medidata is not Oracle where they just buy companies and have no plan on what to do with them.

        I will say BIOC is a rising star and is one to watch in the eclinical world. Earnings are steady and their solutions are ok, and with a little work - will be great.

        As for DATA - I think they are still trying to sue MDSO for some patent thing. I wouldn't be surprised if this totally backfires. Sure, MDSO settled with DataSci over a year ago, but they can crush DATA - not acquire them. Watch for a reversal of fortune there. It won't last long.

        MDSO will grow organically and with the right acquisitions that add value fast. That, with the hopeful onset of more long term big contracts will make MDSO a great stock to play.
