    SQNM has -995.43 million ( 1 Billion ) in Accumulated Deficit. This means it's a real buyout canddidate

    for any big corporation. The tax incentive for any large corporation would put SQNM intrinsic value at 60% of 1 Billion, which is 600 million. Hence even if SQNM does not any test, tool, technology - it would still be valued more than $5 per share. Put into account that company is growing @ 82% YoY and number 1 player in NIPT market, Any valuation under $17-$18 would be a joke. I am ready to bet farm on this stock

    • Bump.

      Sentiment: Strong Buy

    • How funny is is that there is excitement here about discussing the huge SQNM losses. THIS is what you are boasting about after 4 years of telling us how great this company is? You have such an awful company that its main value is to someone picking the bones of the dead sqnm's losses? Seriously?

      You don't think there are 100 hedge funds that know EXACTLY what the value of these losses are? You thin that today you discovered this? You think that any funds who saw any value in this wouldnt have already bid it up to the value of the losses? Oh wait..there is that word...think... never mind! lol

      Go back and reread your 4 years of bullish posts and then come back and see how hilarious this is! lol

    • Under the tax laws, that loss stays with the SQNM business thus can be used only to offset income from the acquired SQNM business. This has been the case since the 80s to prevent tax loss trafficking. However, you are right that whether or not SQNM is acquired, its accumulated losses will offset its future income thus a big cash flow benefit once SQNM turns tax profits. This tax benefit really is a competitive advantage up to 35% rate vs. mature company in the business (e.g., ILMN).

      Sentiment: Strong Buy

      • You beat me to this one. I will just add that this post is typical of sqnm investors. Dear not_think_plan_act, as has been said here, the "think" part of your name is pure fantasy.

        THE TAX LOOPHOLE THAT ALLOWED COMPANIES TO BUY OTHERS AND USE THEIR TAX LOSS CREDITS WAS CLOSED IN THE 1980's.!

        Yes, that is right, Your "knowledge" is so outdated that almost 30 years later, you still don't realize this. Again this shows the lack of "think" in your name! I am saving this one as a top 10 2014 ignorant post!

        Don't worry, I am SURE that 90% of your fellow bagholders here thought you were correct!

        Just to document your post I will repeat it below
