    BUY AS MUCH OF ONVO AS YOU CAN AFFORD

    I have consistently overweighted my portfolio with ONVO. Just to give note to the other side of things here.
    I've gone deep into margin and sold other stocks to buy ONVO. Doing so has served me well. In fact, I'm retired now in part because of ONVO, and the other 3D stocks that did so well in 2013, as well as SWKS and KNDI.

    The cautions about not over-weighting, not going out on margin, are correct. I just don't play by the rules usually. Sometimes it works out. Sometimes it doesn't. In the case of ONVO, it did.

    Thanks grantisplantis:

    The phrase means that Fortuna, the Goddess of luck, is more likely to help those who take risks or action. Its earliest recorded use is by the second century BC playwright Terence, Phormio, 203 (Fortis Fortuna adiuvat) and by Ennius, Ann. 257 (Fortibus est Fortuna uiris data). A similar phrase (Audentis Fortuna iuuat) is shouted by Turnus in Virgil's Aeneid, 10.284, as he begins the charge against Aeneas' Trojans. This phrase is often quoted as Audentes Fortuna iuuat or Audaces Fortuna iuuat.

    I HAVE A 1000% GAIN......

    Looking at the gsat chart, hard to see how you could have a 1000% gain. Could you perhaps be looking at a double, which would be a 100% gain?

    Like you enthusiasm on Onvo, and share that.

    All the best,

    mtp,

    The volitility of which you speak has made for some very attractive option premiums. I've been taking advantage of those (selling covered calls) since last fall. It pays well and doesn't involve the heartburn of day trading.

  • Here is some more information about where the kidney cells come from that Organovo is going to be using to print human kidney tissue.

    Professor Melissa Little and the IMB Kidney Research Laboratory investigates the molecular basis of kidney development, disease, repair and regeneration in the hope of finding a treatment for chronic kidney disease. Once this disease has progressed to end-stage renal disease, where the kidneys have basically failed, treatment is only possible through dialysis or transplantation. Each of these treatments has drawbacks: dialysis serverely limits the quality of life, while only one in four patients will be lucky enough to receive a kidney donation. Professor Little hopes that by understanding the molecular basis of both normal kidney development and renal disease, she and her group will be able to develop therapies that will prompt the kidney to heal itself.

    Here is a publication that announces the development of making stem cells turn into kidney cells:

    Directing human embryonic stem cell differentiation towards a renal lineage generates a self-organising kidney.Takasato et al, Nat Cell Biol (2014) 16(1):118-26. Cover image Nature Cell Biology January 2014 Vol 16 No 1.

    The above directly relates to what Organovo will be printing human kidney tissue with.

    Here is something about the research think tank that developed the process and tissues that Organovo will be using:

    Brisbane: St Lucia, Qld (Queensland Bioscience Precinct)

    The Queensland Bioscience Precinct is a state-of-the-art research facility based at the University of Queensland, housing more than 700 researchers.

    The Queensland Bioscience Precinct (QBP) is Australia’s largest research facility dedicated to human, animal and plant biotechnological research.

    QBP is a purpose-built collaborative research facility.

    It brings together scientists from multiple CSIRO business units and the University of Queensland's Institute for Molecular Bioscience (IMB).

    bemore,

    Option transition costs vary widely, per contract. There is a fee comparison chart at onlinebrokerrev. Look at the fees and commissions page. When my wife and I first started selling options in ernest we had one of our accounts at Fidelity. Their fee is $7.95 plus $0.75/contract. We also had, and still have, accounts with Scottrade. They were charging us $7.00 plus $1.25 per contract. We are selling in the range of 500 - 1000 contracts per month, so the per contract fee really adds up. As you can see at onlinebrokerrev, some brokerage houses only charge from 10 - 15 cents per contract. I called both Fidelity and Scottrade and asked for a lower per contact fee. Fidelity stiff-armed us, so we transferred everything out of Fidelity. Scottrade came back to us with a very good offer. Not quite as good as 15 cents per contract. Actually it is now 25 cents/contract. We accepted that, knowing we could get less elsewhere. Why? I love their customer service and am willing to pay a bit more for it.

    So, how much did that trader pay for trading 5000 contracts? Anywhere from $500 - $6,250.00 depending on what brokerage they are using.

    Hope that helps.

    Best wishes,

    Juggsy

    Queensland Kidney Research Agreement

    Hey Prof,

    It does seem high, but actually that's the same as it is for those in the US. In Australia, the three main risk factors are being Aboriginal, excess alcohol consumption and high blood pressure.

    In the US, the top three are similar, except replace Aboriginals with Blacks.

    Either way, the numbers are high. If Organovo can address this issue it will be huge, for everyone involved.

  • Talk about coincidences..

    Needed to leave our hotel in Brisbane to find a laundromat. Walking home, realized we were walking right by the University of Queensland.

    Remember this?

    Today, the government in Queensland, Australia’s third most populated state, announced that the University of Queensland’s commercialization company, UniQuest, has signed an agreement with Organovo to further the development of 3D printed human kidney tissue. The Minister for Science and Innovation of Queensland, Ian Walker stated that the tie-up will enable Organovo to use the kidney cells which Unitech has grown, to print out sample kidney tissue.

    “Professor Melissa Little and her team made a huge leap forward in stem cell technology last year by growing a tiny kidney in a laboratory dish,” stated Mr Walker. “One in three Australians are at risk of developing chronic kidney disease so what Professor Little accomplished last year was a hugely important development. The kid-3agreement with Organovo, the world leader’s in 3D printing of human tissue, will optimize the cells created using Professor Little’s technology in order to print kidney tissues from them using 3D bioprinting.”

    Professor Little has been helped along with her remarkable research, thanks to a grant provided by the Queensland government for $1 million. The funds have allowed Little to expand her research, and this has apparently paid off in a significant way.

    The kidney tissue will eventually be sold off to drug companies who will use it to test their drugs for kidney toxicity, prior to human trials. Doing so, will save the the industry a tremendous amount of time and money, usually wasted on human trials which end because of high toxicity levels. The kidney tissue will also allow researchers to model diseases better, hopefully leading to new cures or treatments for a variety of ailments.

    The long term goal of Professor Little and Organovo is to 3D print actual human kidneys for transplant.

    You all rock! Thanks for your great replies!!

    I was up at 3:00 AM this morning trying to sell some calls. The Scottrade site never showed they went through, so I placed the same trade again 4 more times before calling Scottrade. Oh, they're shutting their website down due to tech difficulties. I woke up this morning to find that all five trades had been executed!.

    No worries, they called me and said they were canceling the extra four trades. Still, what a bummer for that company. Can't imagine what their day was like, or will be like, when they come back to work today, well, your today. Its still my tomorrow. No wait, Its my today, its still your tomorrow.

    Loved the recent PR. Especially the way they spelled out just exactly how precise they can be on narrowing down the toxic effects of the drug, to the point of knowing which part of the cell is being effected. This is Mr. Lucier at work. Keith Murphy, always understated, may be getting some nudges to toot ONVO's horn a bit more.

    I'm totally psyched all over again about ONVO's possibilities.

    Best wishes to all of you.

  • Hard to post. Traveling in Australia. Staying at beautiful Airlie Beach. Check it out.

    Several good option premiums available just now on quality stocks. Onvo yielding 6% on the Sept $8.00. Kndi and Crto both in the 7-8% range on next Sept. strike up. Wouldn't sell calls on the onvo I own but would buy more in this instance to capture 6%. Selling calls is funding my retirement travels. Whoo Hoo!

    Love, sorry about your August $9.00 calls. Hope you didn't fork out too much. I broke even buying back the $9.00 Aug calls I was short. Was sure the Lucier anouncement would do more to lift the pps.

    Ate at an Italian restaurant here for lunch. Had Gnocchi with Gorgonzola sauce. Try it !

    Onvo hired a consultant back in Nov of 2013, according to the recent filing. I wonder if that was a reference to the Mr. Lucier? If so, he's had some time already to work his magic. Not crediting him, but a 2 year chart of Onvo shows a rise from $2.00 to nearly $8.00 in that time period. That doesn't suck. That's why I'm in Australia and retired.

    Goodbye Robin. I'll miss you.

    Best wishes to all. Hang in there. Sailing to the Great Barrier Reef tomorrow and snorkeling.

    If that options trader sold 5000 put contracts he is obligated to buy 500,000 shares of Organovo for $14.00 next Friday, at a cost of $7,000,000. He would have to have nearly that much money in his trading account to make that trade. If he bought those puts, they cost him $3,200,000. If he bought those calls and sold those puts and Onvo finishes next Friday above $14.00, he will have made out like a bandit, and us too. Hope it works out like that. :)

  • Right or wrong, this will be good for the entire 3D sector. SSYS is up $7.00. Even DDD is bid up $2.00 from yesterday's close. Will probably give us a boost too, not that we need the help.
