I can assure you, he doesn't. Just a speculation that if during the CC they talk about being profitable - the stock might take off.
That is a very big deal , IMHO. That is nothing else, but insider trading. After you place a trade with your brokerage and before your trade is sent to the exchange, the information about your order is routed to HFT computer and that computer trades against you. I see it all the time. For example you want to buy 5000 shares of EMAN and there are 5000 on the ask. So you want to buy them and place an order. But your order changes the situation. Now the HFT computer knows there is a demand for a stock and before your order hits the exchange - those 5000 shares are pulled and you get nothing or even worse, a partial execution of 100 shares.
And only if the stock is going down - your order will be filled.
We pay extra pennies because of that every time you buy and sell. Of course for those who buy and hold - it is not much damage, but for more active speculators - it comes down to hundreds if not thousands dollars in extra cost.
This whole practice should be prohibited since this is an insider trading. They trade based on the information about your intentions.
Maybe. But again, it is very difficult to time such stocks. The q1 might indeed be bad, but if the hype starts - the stock will take off. That is why sometimes it is not worth it to wait for 50 cents discount and miss $5 move.
Don't know about $2.5. The q4 is not supposed to be good, but there is a chance it might if they shipped M100 to all those eager to get them.
I rotated some shares to EMAN since I see them as a safer investment at $2.5, but this one can outperform EMAN. More risky, I agree, but if M100 is selling - they might show profit in q1, 2014.
It is very difficult to time such story stocks.
No. I would guess when q1 results are out in early May. But if the bonding issue has been fixed and the customers give them OK soon - they might release the guidance sooner.
Who knows. If the SNU is working as they claim and the bonding issue fixed soon - they should be profitable again starting in q2. So it is possible they feel safe to buy some shares if the stock is cheap.
Traders jumped in, those who loaded at $2.30 sold some of the shares expecting a pull back. Usuall trading pattern on a sympathy play. If anyone who buys stock for a quick buck and swears off buying it again in case the trade didn't go his way - is a moron. We don't want them here anyway.
In the long run - it is all irrelevant since when it is up 200-500% sometime next year it will be on everyone's radars anyway. But short term it should help to put a bottom.
What that spike accomplished is it put EMAN on some radars and more people are following it now. Not everyone jumps in when a stock is up 30%. Most would wait for a pull back and some of them might be buying at $2.5. Which is better than $2.25 where the stock was the day before OR buyout . More people following the stock will provide better support next time the stock goes down for any reason. Also some bloggers might do some research and recommend the stock as a VR play.
Also higher volume will allow the company to buy back more shares, if they choose to.
The current SNU and bonding issues can be really beneficial for us (current shareholders).
That is because if the SNU was working fine last year and the current revenues were $10+ per quarter - the stock would've been around $15 right now. And if everything was going according to plan it could've gone to $20 by year end. Good , but nothing spectacular.
But instead the stock is currently at $2.50 and with the SNU working and bonding issue being resolved shortly - the quarterly revenues will be $10+ mln by 2h14 and the stock will be around $8. And on its way to $20 by this time next year.
Two scenarios with the same outcome: the stock is $20 at some point in 2015, but in the first scenario it is a steady rise and in the second scenario it is one of the best stocks on the street. And the street loves to love the best stocks and they almost always get a lot of coverage and a lot of hype and always overshoot to the upside. Which means in our case (if the SNU is getting better and the demand is picking up) - we might see $20 stock price in a rear view mirror nest year.
Everything is getting aligned perfectly. New high brightness displays ready by year end, GG release is delayed until same time, SNU is getting better. Let's see how it plays out.
Hope you realize that buying calls you are risking to lose all your investment. That was not a smart move. That was a dumb move that nevertheless ended up good for you.
you can make a fortune by buying $2.5 puts. Why won't you go and buy them if you are so sure about your $1.5 prediction? Let us know how many contracts you bought.
Let them capitulate and move on. Happens all the time. For many, the stock price itself is the only indication as to where the company is going. That is why they sell at the bottom and buy at tops. And of course it is never thier fault, it is always someone else's fault.
With all the 3 powerful customers trying to figure it out and the issue not being a rocket science, isn't it time to find the problem and fix it?
I would think a PR about resuming shipments will add at least 50 cents to the stock price instantly.
Nobody is forcing you to buy this stock if you don't like companies that don't make money. Why don't you go and buy some profitable company instead? Why are you here holding stock in a company that you know is losing money? I tell you why. Because you want a return that is bigger than 10% you would get when investing in an established business. But if you want to invest in risky unprofitable companies ,then you should shut up about them being unprofitable or about them unable to become profitable the next day after you buy their stock.
Welcome to the Wall Street. Most of the financing is done below market price.Big boys will always get their cut in any successful stock. If they cannot buy on open market (and they clearly cannot in this case) , they do a financing. You should be thankful they didn't drive the stock down another 40% in the previous months and bought the shares and the warrants at $3.
So yes, we now hold a smaller share of a pie, but this financing might make the pie bigger. What if they put $10 mln to use and that will help them grow revenues by $10 mln and earnings by $5 mln? Which company would you prefer to hold: one earning $5 mln per year with 5 mln shares or one making $10 mln per year with 7 mln shares?
Yes, it is not fair. Nothing is. Especially not WS.
I was following them some 2 years ago. Even bought FSYS and held for some time.
But cooled of on the whole gas engine idea. My rationale is that at current prices NG engine make sense. But if the public adopts NG cars , the demand for NG will skyrocket and that will cause the price of NG to go up and it won't make much economic sense anymore. Plus they are reading LNG export terminals that will also cause price of NG to go up.
Not to mention that infrastructure is not there yet to convince public to buy gas cars en mass.
But that is my amateurish thoughts and I might be completely wrong. Maybe there is much more NG in the ground to satisfy all the demand for the next 100 years and that will keep the prices low. And the infrastructure will be there at some point. All comes down to timing.
I've never seen a buyout that is more than 200% of the stock price. Not sure how $100 pop is possible unless the stock is trading at $100 and the buyout is at $200.
Can OXGN sell rights for particular Zebrestat application to different companies? Like selling worldwide rights to use it for treatment of ovarian cancer to Bigpharma A for $$$$ and sell rights to treat other type of cancer to BigPharma B for $$$$ and so on?
Why will it crash after q1 report? They already pre-announced the q1 revenues will be same as q4 (dismal). If someone wanted out - why would they want to stick until q1 results are announced?
Unless you get lucky and they have something else happening to the SNU or other equipment - all the bad news have been priced in already.
