No, I use Ameritrade. I started off with Schwab, I think, but their commissions were too high back in the day. I understand their service is much better now. I've used about five different brokerages, but really like Ameritrade. Amazing that I can do all investing actions on my small smartphone, including L2. Has really free up a lot of my time and I'm rarely sitting in front of my computer anymore.
Management had a conference call in spring 2014. Look it up if you can find it. Everything management predicted and more has come true. Rare find in otc stocks. That's why I've taken a large position. They do have a ton of shares. Management just stated the outstanding will be reduced some how. Not sure whether a RS or something else. Vitamin fizz is awesome with 100% B & C. I ordered all flavors from Amazon. Strawberry lemonade, pineapple coconut and lemon lime are my favorites. I think Vfizz is going to be the next sparkling ice. Also, Glu mobile is going to rock over the coming year. Management owns mobile phone gaming.
A move like today is why I don't worry with chembio charts or daily trading. We could move $1/day or 100% over a few months with such low outstanding shares. I assume DPP is gaining new ground.
A partnership might be good move.
"CEO Thomas Braun makes the case for his company’s eventual takeover by endoscopic equipment makers Jonhson and Johnson or Covidien plc who recently spent $300 million buying an Israeli start-up company called Super Dimension."
I hadn't seen this video from last July. Can't provide link. My latest top ten holding, cgnt maybe needs to buy verisante. They just bought a small endoscopic company.

I'm ready. I went from 5000 buys to 10,000. Picked up another 10K sharss at $.009 this morning. The company has a lot on the table, but most are waiting for real sales to ramp. It's a risky bet, but management seems legit and will be a home run if good things unfold.
mjh and you are right, it's useless to do TA on chembio. I only look at the price a couple of times a day and wait for the next PR or guidance.
Norsat is a solid top ten holding for me. Very safe, with the potential of doubling over the next couple of years. Honest, smart management.
I didn't tell anyone else to sell. I said I would most likely take some profits and did...a few thousand shares. I always take some long term tax gains when I have multi bagger gains. Even sold some on the last pop over $5 and bought back to my original amount of shares in the $3's. It puts me in a no lose situation. If the stocks runs to $10, great. If it pulls back, I'll buy back lower.
I'm almost ready to retire. I'm not sure what amount of money would push me sooner? My wife retired five years ago and we're mostly living off of our investments that I manage. Two ways to skin a cat and I don't bet all funds on one company. Anything can happen. That being said, I bought chembio as a core stock with average of $.88 and now $4. Bought Orbcomm core average $2.20 and today $6. Air industries $5, today $10, paying 6% dividend. My latest core stock Glu mobile for $4, trading at $5. I'll be shocked if it's not a multi bagger within a year.
Good luck on your Bermuda purchase. I think I rather stay on our mainland, say from coastal Georgia to outer banks.
Look buddy, I'm trying to be fairly nice to you. You telling me what to do....seriously??? I was here before you in early 13. In fact I posted when I bought my core $1.11/share. You're the one that can't remember your posting's though. When we were $5+ and you were buying on margin and telling everyone else to do so also. You also said to take out a second mortgage on the house!:) Dot Hill is a great little investment, it's why the stock is a top five holding for me. We both were right and did a great job of research, by picking a growth company just before it started ramping. When you pick four more like it, you'll earn your bragging rights.:)
tiny microcap and their management. Companies like ibm are in trouble and small nimble companies like hill are taking their place. I'm not sure where the share price is headed, but dot hill is still undiscovered by most of the investing public. Takes patience to wait out the slow months, waiting for revenue & profits to finally ramp.
You're only telling part of the story and were also telling folks to buy on margin like you, when the stock was $5+. I countered with how disastrous that strategy could be and it ended up being part of the reason, that forced the price back into $3's. I agree though, Hill is a great little company in a growth sector. It's why Hill is a top five holding for me.
Just a matter of time for these types of undiscovered microcaps, before they receive fair value. My Hill was sitting at $3.50 in October and today almost $6. CEMI has always been a hedge for me against a general market selloff. I have to agree with sono now though, on chembio being in play to be acquired. They are in the sweet spot with DPP now and their value will only rise. If suitors keep waiting to buy them out, they will pay more in the future. I don't worry about the low volume. This thing could easily double within a month, if volume buyers finally show up. Otherwise, my shares just sit and wait for this year's story unfolds.
Yeah maybe, but they did pump it good from when they started. It does seem the price is a little overbought, so I might take a little profit off of the table tomorrow. By the way, I was in with a core position before those guys showed up and Icar bought all of the way to the top. Something does seem to be up though with Hill, like a large contract win.
The SkyWave purchase was a no brainer. Rvenue will soar this year and hopefully profit too. Maybe there's another "no brainer" deal just waiting to be snapped up? The M2M and IoT sector is on fire and has decades of growth that's just starting. Orbcomm is becoming a leader.
