    Every 1k shares of BIOL that you hold tomorrow you will get 15 shares of BIOL for FREE. This dividend program is to kick #$%$ the shortseller and BIOL have paid dividend every quarters for the record. The income outlook for 2013 is 3.5 o 4 times the Q4 of 2012, but why do people sell BIOL Why? EX div date is yesterday and record date is tomorrow Why people sell at this rate? Got to have more cowbell please give me your input!

    • Stock dividends are a joke as anyone who has the most basic understanding of them will admit. The shares are't free. The company is just reducing the value of your currently held shares to give them back to you.

      Sentiment: Sell

      lol I was just pondering how much Q1 is going to beat guidance by, still pnodering it :)

      Short at $4 = unlimited risk to $4 max gains ratio
      Long at $4 = unlimited gains to $4 max loss ratio

      Everything looks great here for the company; growth stock, growth industry (both medical, and tech), regulatory approval for additional uses, patents approved, more pending, got the closet cleaned out with restructuring. Management is spot on, CEO not taking a salary, instead using his near 5% holdings to get compensated (he gets paid when we get paid). Institutions only own 20% at this point, only 3 analysts cover the stock, nice stock dividend supported by a previous 2 million share buy back that should be retired this year.

      This is the rare hidden gem we sift for and find only a few times in a trading lifetime. But don't let me stop the shorts, I like the lift they give us when they cover, and this next quarter is going to generate a bigger lift with 2.8 million short interest, they're living on borrowed time, sooner or later they will have to give in, and support my shares, or help drive them up. Thanks guys, you're the best!

      Conclussion: One would have to be braindead to short BIOL.

      • It is true one can only lose the $4 one puts up to go long here, but is that a really good reason to buy?

        if things are so "great here for the company" why haven't then been able to get to 2008 gross sales levels?

        What are the practical applications for their newly patented and approved devices? What unfilled need will they meet? What currently filled need will they sove beeter and cheaper? So many quuestions, so few answers.

        Why isn't Freddie buying more shares?

        Pelase stop claiming Biolase will buy back shares. They have don't have the cash and they haven't bought any shares as of 4Q12. Why do you keep repeating this silly claim?

        Why is it that only 3 analyst cover Bioalse? Why is it only 20% of the company's shares are owned by institutions?

        Why is it short intereest is INCREASING?

        So many obvious questions. why no answers?

        Sentiment: Strong Sell
