    No merger news imminent until BRIG is approved and Dr. Denner may actually give the shorts one last out before it skyrockets! Revenue have grown tremendously with just Iclusig and can you imagine adding another annualized $100M at minimum with BRIG? Add the other Phase 2 drug and it will be like fleas on a dog on a hot summer day! But again it won't happen next week and we wil just be patient and buy on the dips! Seen this happen with other biotech mergers and some amaze me just on the potential. I suspect early spring and we will see if Big pharma like PFE try and wrestle it away from the Chairman! MRK got their KEYTRUDA approved and to see a large value pharma jump over 10% on a day of approval I can imagine where ARIA will eventually soar! Kind of like the excitement when the US landed the men on the moon!

    Great
    Just wanted to tell you about COTV? Hope you have some shares! Looking very good today and glad I nabbed a few! Had a stellar earnings report and hopefully will continue! Sarge may be on life support today with his SPPI! Sad that shorts are like sharks after the earnings report because some analyst says the ER suggest astock could go to zero! Too many option traders as well like the ol daytraders! Anyhow looking for imminent news to effect my portfolio! Elections and September always seem tomake the overallmarket volatile! some willbe winners and well we will find out about the rest! Happy investing!

    How did CERS miss on their profit by .01c? They had greater revenue by almost 20% and their expenses overshadowed that? Did the CEO hint about the CE Mark or give any guidence? Just felt like instead of burning $20M in cash their reserve would also be closer to where it was in December 2015! They should be getting insurance reimbursements and their expenses should level off. Kind of disappointed as you can see and let's see if they can be closer to $40M by yearend instead of $35-$37? Tells me they are not expecting any news or activity from EU RBC!

    Sentiment: Buy

    OK Great I bought a little but added more CERS and should have bought more ARIA with this $3 move before earnings announcement! Interesting on limit orders I get filled mainly in two transactions with 1 share filling the order! Interesting or is the MM just being accomidative? Anyhow just thought it was interesting! What do you think of MRK interest as well as others for BIIB? What company did that AVNR executive leave to become CEO? I thought it was Biogen but I could be mistaken! AMGN is also being targeted? Good luck and now back tombuilding cash! Overall market is volatile! So proceeding with caution! Tomorrow should be a FUN day! I see ARIA moving into double digits and would like to see CERS break at least $8!

    Is this board dead

    I know their MB needed updating but the conversation board is not as structural or defined which set it apart and made you want to read the sentiments about the stocks and funds you were interested in. They seemed to want to make it more a bit like FB but they seem bent on change and it takes awhile to get used to it and unlike KO they likely will not go back to the old format and hopefully this keeps the riff raft off their boards. I like the movement today in CERS also but let's see if it holds over $6.50 today. Don't know if this is options trading that is making it volatile the past two days! Would like news to be sooner then later!

    BTW Brian, I'm not Great althought we both profited handsomely from AVNR and also here at CERS! Great is in Hawaii on vacation and I'm working! I will say CERS is undervalued but many are waiting on news about the CE Mark and the eventual EU RBC ruling! I also expect the CEO of CERS to give guidence on CERS in the next earning report the week of August 4th! I expect the numbers to be much better then last quarter and also expect a date when we can expect revenues hitting the balance sheet ! That would catapult the share much to double digits IMHO and let's see what happens! I likely bought a few of Great's shares when he sold and was disappointed to see it but no one is sad to make a profit and he likely sold half of his shares he bought below $5! I still hold mine! Glad to update you and we all have different goals but hopefully the same aspiration to see this move way up where it is now! Similar events happened at AVNR if that gives you a similarity! I'll likely hope to add after the next earnings report just to give you a heads up! I also expect the share price to climb back to at least the $6.50 level before earnings are announced!

    First death in Texas from Zika in the Houston area who came from an area that was Zika infested and did not contract it in Texas! If this spreads this summer then funding will be inevitable! Figured after the CF meeting that CERS would likely sell off and didn't expect this great of a selloff but again the Big Boys often play both sides to wrest shares away from weak hands and while some would rather make their career doing options, it's likely done more with IBB and similar ETF's then CERS directly. Until CERS puts out news about the EU CE Mark it could be difficult to get a new high with the overall markets Like Dow & S & P reaching all time highs and the summer in the Hampton's overshadows the sizzle but once the CE marks news is released then CERS could go easily to double digits and remember the CEO said he would give guidence in the 2H og 2016 where CERS is now and we wait to see the earnings that likely will be announced the week of Aug. 4! I'm ready for double digit growth numbers and glad Pooh sold his shares! I likely pickd up some of his unless his are imaginary! I got them from someone! I still like my ARIA and expect news from them about their BRIG drug approval! Glad my AVNR proceeds are still continualing to make more for me! Good luck Great and I appreciate all your hard work you send to CERS MB!

    While the stock may have been painted down it will be interesting for Friday's market to see if it can eclipse the $6.50 resistance or break through and move toward the double digit area! I think some were spooked by the last quarterly and likely we could see a new 52 week high before we know the next ER! Surprized you got your fill and could be some short term traders are trying to push it down to buy through another account! Old trick to try and wrest shares away from weak hands!

    Did you see what Jazz paid for their last takeover with no revenues? Perhaps you have your own entitled opinion but lets see the next quarterly report and see if the CEO was optimistic last December when he made remarks and he likely didn't know that the Government was going to put down $181M to boot besides all the other exciting PR's that were speculative last year but are now facts this year! No way will CERS sell out for $12 unless Jazz is the buyer and Bruce Cozadd has a real conflict of interest but while I don't totally dismiss your $12 target for a buyout, it will be much more once they get the EU Red Blood Cell approval where the potential market is in the $Billions! Stay tuned!

    It showed up on my E-Trade news! That would provide somewhere between 125-150K kits for Africa which is a drop in the bucket for all of Africa but perhaps the Swiss Red Cross is serving a few countries and not all on the continent! Another infusion of cash though which gets CERS closer to profitibility! Wonder if YHOO is fixxing to be acquired and wonder how that changes their format! Hershey BOD rejected Mondelez bid of $23B to take it over! Just ten years earlier, Wm. Wrigley offered Hershey $12B which again was rejected! Lots of cash looking for deals!

    How close are they to a vaccine! WS can sell hype to retailers all the time and you have to study the fundamentals to determine fact over hype! BARDA already committed to a five year programs to CERS worth $181M dollars! Can you show me where INO has committed dollars like that which is non dilutive? I've seen foreign companies hyped from $1 to over $25 and now worth pennies! Hope you sold for a profit if you bought at $1 and sold at $13!

    Yeah amazing that you have to be multimillion to be in shape to do what makes you happy to do the things you feel entitled too! Great is wealthy thanks to buying AVNR at $2.50 and selling 600K @ $17! Yeah a $1.5M investment gets you to over $10M. Then parlay $2M into CERS! You paid $4M in taxes so you put a third in CERS and you could sit and move to over $30M if the numbers for RBC come to fruition! I made out rather well with AVNR also and while I didn't have what Great did it wasn't chicken feed and it was my best return except for one other stock simply because you can buy more shares under $4 then you can do better then most value investment plays cause you will buy over 5K shares and enjoy it when the buyout is announced! Retirement gives you the time to do things you otherwise can't do even if you get the big splits from the large caps and remember MSFT had 10 splits from 1987 to 1997! How many multimillionaires did one tech stock make? Many! GLTU!

    With the CE Mark in the EU getting closer even with the supposed uncertainty of Brexit who never had the Euro monetary system most of the uncertainty is from countries that were full fledged members of the EU! It's a buying opportunity to take the weaker hands out for whatever reason and likely the markets were testing how many shares were held on margin and the Big Boys trying to snare the last of the cheap shares! With new infused non dilutive cash anyday you could see CERS pop to double digits but hopefully I will get my orders filled next week before it happens!

    $180M over five years takes this stock easily to $7.50 to $10 range given the fact they were projecting $35-$40M in sales without RBC or CE Mark! that's easily a no brainer with CERS not looking to acquire or needing cash to fund research! Now will MM's take advantage by selling cheap puts! Heck that's how they manipulate the total market with every stock. Some are just easier to manipulate then others when news helps and when RBC gets approved this easily goes to $16-$20 by end of this year. Now if Bruce wants to buy this company and who knows if he offers $35 then many institutions might feel compelled to push for it even though RBC could get CERS to over $50 upon RBC approval in EU and USA! Unless yu see CERS do a special offering to gets shares to the new buyer like they did with AVNR, and many were wondering why they needed to do it and it was because Otsuka needed more cheap shares to make the takeover amicable! Nothing surprizes me anymore. You just have to know how to connect the dots.I will be happy but again willknow that whoever buys it does some things that will cause some longs to flee and take less then when the news breaks. I say there are at least a minimum of six big pharmas who would like to get their hands and take this company on the cheap with all the potential that it offers! Glad I bought more last week and was nearly thinking of buying more just in case of the CE Mark but this goernment infusion is much better and know this company will fetch $35 at minimum and who knows some of the things I'm not privy too or if the takeover company doesn't do it soon then that minimum goes even higher!

    They priced the public offering shares at $2! Shares down today 21% in pre-market! Avi is worse then the Chinese in Accounting! Glad I didn't get enticed to what I initially thought was a low price and felt he would at least price it at the Dutch Auction price of $2.85? Maybe he's thinking he can buy YHOO with the proceeds? LOL! Avi should be investigated by the SEC but the Big Boys are complicit in doing these deals because they want to make an extra .50c! Talk about a poison pill!

    Read how much bonus Avi has received! He's acquired about a half dozen acquisitions and it initially makes the revenue numbers look great but this stock has not been over $4 in ten years! The names have changed just not his methods! He's been involved in everything from bitcoins to Brazilian conglomerates! He even tried to do some hostile takeover and paid proceeds when it failed or the shareholders did. He even did a Dutch auction and most longs have given him the benefit of the doubt but it would have been nice if Avi could have sold this for $8 but he can't! I doubt if he even remembers all the things he has done to this company with many names!

    I don't know why it broke up over 15% today and then sold off but with a drug that does not meet effaicy or safety standards it likely will take much longer for the drug for MD to be approved! I don't have a dog in the race but thought someone who is shorting CERS should look at others that would seem to be more beneficial to him! I do and bought more CERS today and while Motley tried to hold it down I know events are imminent that will benefit CERS! Perhaps some perceive that as pumping but I say do your own DD and I'm just reminding and pointing out to a few the progress that has already been met! Glad I picked up some more today and glad weak hands handed me a gift! JMHO!

    I picked up shares and feel very good about what CERS is doing and with Zika and other pathogen and contaminates that could hurt the blood supply that helps a patient every two seconds in the US! If our Olympians compete in the Olympics they could be endangering their live with an epidemic in Brazil that isnot to be taken lightly! Plus all the other personnel who will cover the event and it's like wait, why are we subjecting our best athletes to this area that could take them down and how many other countries worldwide will be doing the same thing! I would be sending folks who can eradicate these mosquitoes with the best equipment to protect them and also save many Brazilian folks. Where is the WHO? Still trying to decide what to do? This should have taken place last year or sooner and who do you point the finger at? I know if my family or friends ever need a transfusion I know to ask a simple question? Do you use the Intercept to protect your blood supply?
