The hedge funds are extremely bullish on ETRM and are accumulating the stock before it goes through the roof. It is not easy to buy a few million shares when stock is so illiquid hence an employee is hired under the name of penny_dreaddful to scare a few longs into selling and to refrain a few longs from buying. This is calling bullying or trying to put doubt and does not work since strategy is so obvious. The fact their is bashing means there is some big hedge funds wanting in so it is a very bullish sign.
A person who has no interest in this stock like penny saying he is neither long nor short but fights tooth and nail, searching articles, rebuffing information, posting links, and using so much of his energy means there is a utlerior motive, which is to make hedge funds buy will he tries to hold price down with doubt. It is not working here because shares are limited and those who are holding know it is going to explode. Penny is being fed all documents by hedge funds.
Now with regards to market potential. U.S. is the fattest country in the world and most of these fat people suffer diebetic, hypertension and cardio problems costing billions each year in health care costs. Given U.S. is bankrupt and they have trouble passing budgets the FDA will approve devices which bring down health costs.
When speaking of clincial results, a person with VBLOC lost 25% of their weight and a placebo lost 15%. We know placebo was due to power of the mind, problem is with placebo if this worked constantly then we would put fake device, tell ourselves we will lose weight, believe in it and yes we lose. But over long term people become doubtful and before you know it they are fat again. When looking at VBLOC one sees 25% weight loss even if one returns to doubt and better health with diebetic under control and hypertension.Obtaining just 1/3 of 1% of the market or .003 means 500,000 patients at $ 5,000 per device gives $ 2.5 billion per year in sales.
I am almost 100% certain penny_dreaddful works for HEDGE FUND or promotion company where there are institutions who was to load up but cannot do so since stock is so illiquid. Try to buy 100,000 shares and you will push stock up 10 cents on your own. I bought a big amount myself and had all the trouble in the world getting filled as supply is just not there.
