    The pot stocks all ran 100-300x from their lows earlier this year. Same could happen hear once the momo crowd gets in. The whole float has turned over the past month and the new owners are probably not going to give up their shares for pittance. This could run like those crazy MJ stocks. At least they have a first-to-market product unlike most of those...

    Not sure how much clearer I can get. I said "$1,245,000 in shares". So, they received that much money by selling shares. There is a good reason for the OS to go up by 300M shares. Hope they can use the funds to start commercializing their headset and games before the year is out...

    They sold $1.245MM in shares to investors (27 separate filings) and the stock is shooting up after the sale. So they have the money to start manufacturing now, once the beta test is completed. Looks like this might be one of those crazy stocks to go ballistic in a few months...

    RSH warns of BK and the stock goes up 20%. LIke I said, the shorts who are guessing BK before sale (and let me re-iterate that they guessing just like longs) are going to pay more than current prices either way. How much higher depends on the news...

    Displaying upside momentum

    OK, looks like the OS is close to 1B shares now (up from 650MM). So $0.5419 puts it around $500M market cap. Sounds crazy (and it is from what we know today) but who thought Minecraft will bring in a $2B offer from Microsoft? These days nobody cares about valuations no matter how insanely big they are. I pulled out my limit sell orders at 0.003. Let this ride on the back of Mr. Abrams to penny land and beyond.

    GAP territory

    We are in the GAP territory now. It should steadily get back to the low as traders hop on for the ride. Hopefully, Claure gives some color to the traction in Sep with the new plans in place. If positive, this will be back to the $8s where it belongs right now anyway ...

    49ers, I think it is the software that the "mega-short" troll keeps harping on that is in their balance sheet. Anyway, there is still 3.5 months to see what happens though I would also like a quicker resolution so that I can move on to another play.

    Hoto, I agree that we could see $1/share if a sale or merger is announced before BK. However, if it doesn't happen by end of year and the DE does not extend the timeline, they have to file Ch 11. It will drop below a dime but then shoot up to 30 cents on short covering. There are still 23,427,403 shares short as of 8/29/14 (only 500K covered over the last 2 weeks of Aug). That is what I was implying from the lower target.

    Longs are hoping for the first scenario and shorts are hoping for the second scenario. In each case, it is a guess and if anyone says that is a fact, you can just add them to your ignore pile...

    6.14 to 7.28. That is the gap to fill as the failed TMUS merger takes a back seat and the prospect of the highest subscriber growth in 7 years takes precedence. Remember their network was worse and they were losing subscribers and money when they were in the high $7s before the TMUS merger rumor began and the subsequent run to the $11s. There is no more phone subsidy and so they can afford to sell cheaper and still have higher margins than before. Only real upfront cost is the $350 that they have to pay to get customers to break their current contracts with T and VZ. But as you can see with TMUS and NFLX, all the street cares is subscriber growth. And that they will have as their network matures to handle the growth from the best unlimited plans in the industry.

    Still here. I have not added for a while. Is your internal contact still thinking October for a sale announcement? We are on a wait and watch mode now. The shorts will only cover when major news hits (good or bad), which is good for those who got in after June. Whether it will be a buck or 30 cents from the covering will be dependent on the nature of the news.

    Range Bound $0.007 - $0.009

    Possible factors to cause a rise:
    1) What they did with the $3M they just got. Why pay an arm and leg for it if they are already cash flow positive?
    2) Plans to reverse split and uplist.
    3) Penny stock newsletter pumps the stock.

    I have learned that earnings does jack for this stock...

    That's a 300MM market cap! But if their sci-fi product catches on like wildfire, that's nothing when other hot companies are sporting valuations that are plain insane (in the multi-billion range). I have decided to remove my sell orders and just see where this goes. The recent volume suggests that there is a lot of interest in this company now though it does not show in the price just yet. The float has turned over since Aug 25.

    Quick, so did you get confirmation from Ms. Dunlap on your understanding of the school status list she sent you? I am guessing not since you have not updated us. But it is interesting that every article is mentioning 10 less schools than what they have, including the PR on the deal with the DE.

  • betasplen1 betasplen1 Aug 29, 2014 8:23 AM Flag

    Quick, Thanks for clearing that up. So, the option of continuing as a smaller school is out. I guess that's why it is not discussed by any analyst or reporter. But I wasn't expecting that to happen anyway. But I do expect a sale before BK and you might still escape from this mess in one piece. If BK does happen, you will still get at least twice the current price. The shorts will be your friends in either scenario...

    Honestly, I got no clue at this time. Got to see what happens when they announce BK or if they can sell sufficient assets to avert BK. It's on my watch list for sure...

    Hi Ed, See that you are still active on this board and NIHD. In the meantime, I see your antagonist, edgarhansen has disappeared from this board after his NIHD fell off the cliff. The law of averages (and Karma) catch up with everyone, me included. I am waiting for the official BK announcement from NIHD before getting in. That will be a cool triple digit run, given the large short position there. As for VELTF, I don't see anything exciting on the horizon. That run to a dime was a good time to exit but hindsight is always 20/20. Hope it does it again for you and you get out this time. All the best...

    I think that is a given. They will first have to announce some good news on the Phase 1 trials and then they can raise a substantial chunk in the $8-10 range to take them thru Phase 2. Once the stock settles on the PIPE offering, that will be a good time to buy, assuming good trial data of course. Risk will be minimized if you wait for those things to happen before buying IMO.

  • "As part of a deal announced in July, Corinthian agreed to sell MOST of its schools and close a dozen others in exchange for temporary cash infusions from the government."

    Focus on the word "MOST". It is bewildering that there is not one article that talks about the schools that are not for sale or will be taught out or how CCI will look after the sale, assuming the sales happen by the deadline. Management says they are ready to continue business as usual. They have reported accelerated sales as one option to solve the cash crunch and have mentioned that discussions are moving along as expected in their "warning to new students" as well as in quotes in several articles. Yet all articles state that COCO is shutting down or going out of business or dead and buried. Along with over 30% of the float shorted, I don't see why hedge funds won't be all over this. Given that only 600K of the 23.5M shares bought in the first 2 weeks of Aug was short covering, I think a few opportunistic funds are accumulating to make a nice coin in a couple of months or sooner IMHO...

    gf995, Do you feel better about the timelines now? I was getting ready to write this thing off earlier this week but they have a prototype now and it looks great. If they price it right and market the heck out of it, could this be the next new tech toy, especially for the handicapped? Maybe I won't sell into the monster volume today and just see this thing to the end. Abrams is still there and they seem to have the resources to take it to market. This could be $100-200MM company or a 100-bagger from here if they are at the right place at the right time.

    Is that Aug 29 or Sep 2? Just want to put the correct date on my $1000 check to you. Either date will qualify for this one-time offer....
