    Why Illumina Takeover Might Make Sense

    I have no clue...if I did I would work for a venture capital firm and not Wendy's. I can only hope if it is true Conroy represents the stockholders well.

    Sentiment: Strong Buy

  • I believe Roche has shown interest in Illumina. Conroy discussed being close to eliminating false positives in many cancers. This may have as much importance to Illumina as Cologuard itself. If you are Illumina, found a company with synergy and want to remain independent ....taking on the debt is not a bad idea.

    The USPTF's recommendation ensures future revenue accelerated growth. You will be paying pre profit prices. You make it more expensive for someone to take you over. Is it likely no put you can't say with 100 percent certainty it is a no.

    If by the small chance this happens, we can only hope Conroy presents us well.

    Finally Above the Oct 6th High of that Day

    This earnings report is all about the implications of the USPTF guidelines and the positive impact on revenue and profit moving forward. Conroy has stated he was planning for no change in the draft and a strategy that supports that. He said in a call after the decision that insurers will comply in 6 to 12 months with the outside being 18. Normally he is conservative but with the guidelines out of the way, I am hoping he steps out of his comfort zone just a little. I believe he will.

    Compare this to EXAS

    Not appropriate for this board and I really do not think much of you or your posts. I believe with no room for doubt that you are full of #$%$ on what you about EXAS. This being said, I did see a segment on 60 Minutes a while ago about using the body?s immune system to fight cancer and I am aware of Juno. Your comments about the people being dead anyway better speaks to your real understanding of biotech and trials.

    Been following Juno for a while and while the science is as promising as any in fighting cancer, not sure yet Juno is the right company of it. This has nothing to with the drop last week.

    I can assure you the comparison to XM Sat Radio is wrong. Sometimes a comparison is so silly, you do not need to comment any further. This being said based on your opinion, are you shorting the stock or are you just one to give us insight?

    Sorry.. I thought you were a clown and stupid but you are a clown and a lie. First we must start with your intro theme song

    And,where are the clowns?
    Quick, send in the clowns
    Don't bother they're here

    Your own words
    July 20th at 1 pm you shorted at 11. Riding to 7, stop loss at 15.
    July 21 at about 1 pm..heading to 10 . This is 24 hours later and it still hasn't reached 10.
    Today you posted in reference to the 20th, that it is common sense to take a gain when a stock drops 10 percent in 4 hours.
    I am sure you will now magically come up with an explaination .... Like like on s leap goes automatically to Blah blah blah blah

    On July 23 rd you posted you shorted at 11.12. The stock has not dropped 10 percent since. You just for the record.. You are still in and losing money. you have a stop lose at 15 and will close when the stock hits 7 correct?

    If I am angry it is because you give chocolate lovers a bad name.

    I am shocked you still have any money. You posted you were shorting and closing EXAS at 7. When you started losing money you magically stopped out You normally sound like a clown. When you post your imaginary trades you look stupid. Maybe you can spend more time on that board and grace those posters with you stillar advice. I actually hope you actually go long with that stock and you ge the pop you expect. You can seek the help you so despately need.

    EXAS Potential Path to the End

    Tom Watson was fired from NCR before he took over the Computing Tabulating Recording company. Do you know what that company is today. The success or failure of Conroy's bast is not relavent.

    The opportunity is there.....the technology is there....the path to revenue has been shorten big time by the USPTF. If Exas is not successful, it will be no Conroy's failure.

    I need to apologize to you. I thought for the longest time you were just pulling our leg and you really aren't as stupid as you are portraying yourself to be. This is why I had you on ignore. I am one that never shies away fro admitting I was wrong. I am wrong. I I know... I know...gross revenue and net loss.

    Going to Vegas - Aug 19th 15 calls

    l0410z l0410z Jul 8, 2016 1:30 PM Flag

    Not sure it means anything to anyone but me on how many I own but I can say with 100 percent uncertainty, I would not be the least bit upset if you were right on the value of the contract.

    Sentiment: Strong Buy

  • A few minutes ago I decided to purchase some of the 15 calls. Called up my internist for results of a blood test. He told me he purchased some EXAS. Again, I know him 33 years and he knows I have been following EXAS since I was 48 (2003). He and I have discussed stocks much over the years. I do not ask him how many shares but I figured if he went from knowing nothing about cologuard to purchasing shares in the company, the options are worth a shot. I have said this a million times but do not invest more than you can afford to lose. I figure my wife's spending habits have me working 3 years after I die anyway and I do believe this could see levels it was at just before the USPTF's draft recommendation.

    Journal article

    I am not a professor but it doesn't take a rocket scientist to know people aren't getting screened. What is the mortality date on on the 35 percent of the people who should go for screening and don't. No matter how good a colonoscopy might be , its success rate of detecting polyps and colon cancer is zero if someone does not take it.

    So if your daughter has a friend or relative that just wouldn't get a colonoscopy, is she saying that she would suggest they do nothing or take another test in which I am not aware is a sgood as cologuard. Please ask her since you has provided input to this board through you.

    Sentiment: Strong Buy

  • Lets see how many levels of deletion we can go. So we have my 6 month ago doctor posting that showed my doctor of 33 years going having no knowledge of cologuard to my current post of that same doctor being a big fan of it for patients he knows will not do a colonoscopy. Deleted

    My post on why that post got deleted got deleted . Lets try this one to see how long it take...

    I am kind of honored... my wife, kids and dog do not care much about what I say.... at least someone on this board does.

    Maybe this will make it stick....they are going to run out of money....the technology isn't sound.... I shorted at 12.94 today a significant amount of shares and will close that position when the company goes bankrupt or when the stock hits 50 cents whichever comes last. Conroy doesn't know what he is doing. The CDC is corrupt. The USPTF was influenced by the US AG.

    Even though you are on ignore, YMB shows the post and then makes it disappear. Silly way to do this but since you showed up again on a down day for both the market and EXAS, I thought it best answering this by your theme song

    posted this in a similar thread...

    I wouldn't be the least bit concerned as it relates to this. If you have ever been involved in Insurer decisions, they do not move quick enough on information that comes out 3 weeks before publication date of new guidelines. Their review processes are not that dynamic. I believe you might find this with many of the insures even the ones that committed to EXAS they would change with an updated recommendation. I think you will very few will change by July 1. Many will change by Jan 1. A few stragglers will wait as long as law permits.

    Secondary? So What?

    by thesarksays Jul 3, 2016 11:26 PM
    l0410z l0410z Jul 4, 2016 7:17 PM Flag

    Stock has doubled in a month....agree....but we know why it doubled
    .Exas management said they would not do a secondary offering before the reason If they needed money they would go to bond market. The last stock offering was at 25.5 and the company is much better now than before. So a secondary offering now doesn't make sense.

    In a vacuum, a secondary offering may not be a big deal but companies like people can't live in a vacuum.

    If money is required and I believe it isn't, a secondary offering is not the right choice unless it is the only choice. If it is the only choice, this isn't good.
