I understand your rationale, Al. I really do...I'm not being facetious. My problem is that I am firmly in the camp, right or wrong, that believes that APRI has seen it's last nickel from Vitaros. It's a real enigma. It's impossible to tell whether this latest move is based on financial confidence or a last, desperate roll of the dice.
I have to be honest here. If it wasn't for Aspire leaning on this thing like a 10 cent hooker everyday, then sending the cash back to their pimp, I'd probably take a shot here. But it's VERY difficult for me to ever buy into programmed selling...What can I say?...I'm torn.
Hey BobbyG!...Good to hear from you, too!
How 'bout these gunslingers, huh? Gotta hand it to 'em, balls o' steel! Or brains of mush. Or both.
But it IS a game changer. Hope the game goes your way. I truly do.
Hey Al!...First of all, it's 9:30 in the morning, meaning that it's been cocktail hour for more than 30 minutes, so I must graciously decline to put the bottle down, but I will happily tell you what the worms have been screaming to each other. Here are just a few of their quotes:
"When did these gringos become riverboat gamblers!?...They've gone ALL-IN!"
"If this flops, they FOLD!"
"How they gonna pay Forendo 45 million upfront! Where's that scratch coming from?"
It's been like that, Al. Pretty wild, and I can only imagine that Aspire feels like they have to pick up the pace. Kinda spooky right now.
Thanks for the warm welcome, social!...Of course, I have no idea who I'm actually talking to, since you guys swap ID's so often I can't keep track.
But I have a suspicion. Tell me, social...What's your opinion of "welching"?
Oh, don't claim you haven't!...I know better.
Hey, I have a fun quiz for everyone. Who can name all the countries that APRI has stolen money from in the past four years? C'mon! Try it...it's fun!
And here's the really entertaining part. After all that petty larceny in all those countries, it appears that APRI is going to be taken down by little Finland! Ha! (Geez, who could have seen THAT coming?)
No, I'm not 58...Im 56! I made last year my final year of teaching, so now I'm actually getting younger! I thought when I retired that I'd just spend more time drinking, but I've found that now i don't need to!Despite the fact that I was every kids guru and they worshipped me, the stress really drove me to the worms.
But now I sit on my back deck watching hummingbirds and writing poetry. Occasionally I switch over to Ameritrade, say, "that looks cheap," buy a couple thousand shares, then switch back to my poem.
Life is good...I hope it is for you, too. I've missed you.
Okay...I'm back. Boy that Hussongs is good.
Let's talk about this Aspire deal. APRI is now officially, KNOWINGLY, and INTENTIONALLY swimming with sharks. I had no idea that anyone could legally make such a deal with a corporation. i want to immediately create my own Aspire. They come off like Santa Clause: "We'll buy 100,000 shares of your stock whenever you tell us to...cuz we love you." Ha!...What they actually mean is: "We'll buy 100,000 shares of your stock on the low of the day TOMORROW." Not today...or yesterday's low, but tomorrow's low.
Ponder this...even my worms figured this out in ten minutes.
Swimming with sharks, and diluting every week.
Oh god, i need another shot.
Hey Court! Hey BobbyG! I'm having a few shots and just couldn't keep from jumping into this mess.
Congrats on the launches. I really didn't see that coming. I assumed it would just end up as another 3 year Abbott-like freeze with none of them doing squat. Now I don't read 10Q's, but I've got worms that do. They rolled around and called me foul names (in their high pitch voices) when they read APRI's. I had told them that APRI was going to blow 3 to 6 mil cash making Vitaros. Wow, was I wrong. They apparently only spent a 100 grand!
Heck, they spent 1.5 mil just making the sample they sent Abbott!.....100k? Geez, I could probably fit that much Vitaros in the trunk of my car! (and have you ever seen the trunk of a 69 XKE Jag?...I couldn't squeeze a gross of condoms in there).
I need another shot. Back soon.
This stock will NOT go lower than 95 cents, BUT it will get there. I already have my 96 cent bid for 20 grand in place. Look, all of you have been playing this game long enough to know that anything is possible. When it hits that price, each and every one of you will feel in your hearts and soul that the lawsuits will wipe them out, the #$%$ earnings that will come out on the 14 th will fuel the fire, and the 15 million shares that are required to trade in order to turn this boat will do so.
Please, I am not trying to annoy you. In reality, i don't think any of this matters. it's going to rebound to 3.50! Quickly! You can just sit and watch.
But i have an interesting prospect for you. The failure of EDAP has caused considerable collateral damage to BSDM. It feels like those investors who owned both have puked all of their BSDM stock (in order to buy the "cheaper" EDAP stock OR to meet margin calls). My proposal is this: Instead of buying more EDAP, buy the cheap BSDM. First of all, it is at these prices under false pretenses, so if there is something legitimately WRONG with EDAP, then BSDM will rebound wildly. Secondly, if Edap rebounds, so will BSDM.
I honestly feel like this is a great way to reduce your risk without reducing your exposure to profit.
JMHO...ignore if you choose.
Remember me? I'm the guy who wanted to slit his wrists when I sold my stock at 4.48 on the way up. Well, I'm feeling better now,obviously, and I have some advice. I have always been annoyed when I hear the term "manipulation" tossed around on these message boards like it's a dirty word. Of course this stock has been manipulated! Hey, if it wasn't for manipulation these darn things wouldn't move at all! Manipulation is only a dirty word when it's going against you. And here's the good news: The manipulation is clearly not over. This is bad news in the near term, and great news a month from now. Whether you want to accept this or not, EDAP will trade, I'm guessing around ten days from now, at .95. I know...preposterous! But let's face it, hindsight being 20-20, so was 6.05. Until then, keep your money in your wallets. What happens after that? 3.50 four weeks later. So says my crystal ball, and happy trading!
I don't think that is quite accurate Eldiviner, but close. When EDAP did that, it was a clear sign that the stock was going significantly higher. First off, they didn't NEED to do it. After all, they just had their first profitable quarter. They were TOLD to do it by the slick financiers who have handled their affairs probably for years, and EDAP, like all the other bios who survive on the kindness of strangers and don't ask any questions, simply handed it over to them. These financiers are obviously affiliated with the daisy-chainers who were prepared to run the stock to 6, dump all their shares, and then walk away. Those 3 million shares? Long gone, probably at an 8 million dollar profit. The problem now is the 10-20 million shares of fresh bagholders which this daisy-chain created. My prediction? They will drive the stock to .95. I already have my order in, cuz that's a serious bargain.
I bought this stock about nine months ago for 2.48. I sold it for a two dollar profit a few weeks ago on its way up. When it hit 5 bucks I started randomly kicking our dog, for no good reason. When it hit 6 bucks I filled the bathtub and searched for single-edged razor blades. All I could find were my wife's Lady Schick disposables (heck, you can't even nick yourself with those things). So, I went to my workshop, and as usual, you can never find a boxcutter when you need one. So I manned-up, went to my I-pad, and bought 40 of the July 5 puts on this thing for a nickel. I waited. The fricking things expired two days BEFORE the stock breaks 5 and would now be 1.40 in the money!
On the bright side, I can now console myself that I sold my stock considerably higher than it closed today (small consolation), and I have made up with the dog (they have such short memories) and I have been taken off suicide watch.
Just a heads up...There are at least 8 million shares held by bagholders a buck or more higher than this. The guys who daisey-chained this stock up to 6 have clearly shorted and walked away. I wish you luck. You'll need it.
