    What if ???

    What if last week was all about testing the waters before big money comes to play here? This company owns some real IP (approx. 500 patents and several FDA licenses); if the bigger boys wanted to pump it it could run up to $3 overnight. Any real tie-ins to the 3D printer space and we could see $4. Any real tie-ins to the construction industry and we could see $5… There are so many shorts out there that the sky is the limit and once it starts to run the squeeze could get un-bear-able!!!

    I bet that the next time the volume spikes up we see the low $2’s again on volume alone. The company is continuously innovating and improving on existing innovations. IMHO, it’s just a matter of time before they announce some sort of game changing partnership. In fact, that could be the very reason for the recent insider purchases.

    I love seeing all the shorts here because they make sky high dreams possible because once a squeeze happens it will be their dollars that make the rest of us rich $$$$$$$$$$$$

    Let it be so…..

    • Sorry, your dd is flawed! I have to admit, I like the name duediigence yet clearly the person using that id isn't digging deep enough to do proper due diligence. The insider that sold in the low $2’s wasn't a set of insiders, instead it was one insider who was dying and decided to get his affairs in order. He is not the typical example of an insider trading this company and unfortunately he is no longer an insider for the company. When you ignore his actions then you’ll find that all of recent insider activities have been purchases including the direct purchase of nearly 100,000 shares last month.

      Sentiment: Strong Buy

    • Check the insider sells. $2 to $2.20. There's the ceiling for the stock, according to the insiders.

      Sentiment: Strong Sell

      • I think the saying goes, "plenty of reasons to sell, only one reason to buy."

        Sentiment: Strong Buy

      • When I check the insider sells I get a different picture.
        The picture I see is that since the end of 2011 only 1 Director sold a total of 60,000 shares on 4 transactions from March- June 2012 and while 3 of those sales were in the price range quoted above the other one of those sales was at a price of $3.10.
        In that same time frame there were 2 purchases of 100,000 shares each and one of those purchases was at a price of $3.12.
        I would caution anyone limiting the reward side of investing to a price range of $2.20 based on insider action to consider that no one except this one insider has sold since June 2012 and since then insiders have purchased 370,000 shares.
        I respect everyones opinion but sometimes you just have to look a little deeper.

        Sentiment: Hold
