David Gardner: So between Pac Bio and Athena Health, that's a pretty easy one for me. I think that Athena Healthis a healthier company with healthier prospects. It isn't hard to say that when we reflect that Pacific Bio Sciences, which I recommended along with my friend, Karl Thiel, I think a year ago, and that same issue, April 2011, NXP(NASDAQ: NXPI ) , and Pac Bio came out, and Pac Bio was at fourteen and a half then; it's at about three bucks now, below three.
David Gardner: So it has performed badly as a stock. And I think there are many more questions about Pacific Bio's business than, what was the competitor?
Max: Athena Health.
David Gardner: Athena Health, right. I just think Athena Health is a surer bet. Nothing is a sure bet on the market, but between those two it's easy for me to push Athena H.forward.
These people actually charge for their advice. In the fields of medicine, engineering, law, and selling used cars these people and their ilk would be de-credentialed. The reason they are not in this business is because there are no credentials. All you need is an opinion.
