Clever but stupid. Glad CDTI is using the longer drawn out testing to verify. I think I heard this morning $22B in market cap losses, $8B to fix and penalties next. Will CDTI play a role in designing a cure? Interesting that Audi is one of the vehicles CDTI is testing new technologies on. Is a OEM in a position to recall and fix this? Or will they have to look to a retrofit to replace?
The mileage and omission results are conflicting issues. How deep does this go, if it's cdti responsibility to test their technology, what about the coater's who did VW cars? Did they have a role in this?
The big picture is can Diesel actually compete with cost and mileage results and pass testing. Cheating allowed VW to ignore new technologies and all OEM's are on high alert to the new eyes watching. GM has to be worried about their turbo's. This cheating runs deeper and could put new light on CDTI and it's technology.
CDTI management took the long road to verify, this may be a very wise decision, because OEM's are scrambling to meet these tests. This key note speech will get more attention now, that this is front and center. Timing could not be better for us.
Rather than meet the standards, the EPA says VW sneaked in the defeat device software to detect when the car is hooked up to a dynamometer, a machine that measures emissions. When emissions are being measured, the defeat device tells the car to operate at "dyno calibration," or full emission control levels, to meet the standards. At all other times, however, the software sets the engine to run on "road calibration," allowing the excessive emissions. How can the program tell the difference? By noting the position of the steering wheel, variations in speed and other data that suggest no one is driving the car, and thus it is likely being tested.
The cheating came to light when the California Air Resources Board and the EPA pressed Volkswagen for an explanation for disparities found between lab tests and road tests of its vehicle emissions. The agencies didn't find the technical reasons offered by VW to be convincing and said they would not issue certificates allowing 2016 models to be sold until the automaker offered an adequate explanation. "Only then did VW admit it had designed and installed a defeat device in these vehicles," the EPA said. VW said it was cooperating with the investigation but otherwise had no comment.
I like SVACF. If you look at the patents they just acquired from CLS therapeutics, you will see what I like. Read the patents. This is a Frost stock also.
I took a position in AEZS. Looks like a bargain. Got in at .055. The only negative I see is their growth hormone has to compete against PFE/OPK and that will be a tough battle. Thanks for the heads up, glad I was patient and waited. They get the second update in Oct on the one drug. Did you listen to their R&R presentation? I read through the presentation material.
Your AEZS not holding up too well. believe you were pumping that at .14. Doesn't look like you are doing any better then these pigeons. Play nice NTTG. No chart looks worse then AEZS. I see PVCT has erased some of it's losses. Just checking in and see you in a few weeks.
I agree. GL and in the future use one id to make your views. You get sloppy and I had to spank you so much here, is that right?
D&F. They will save billions now and insiders at Neph didn't make a move until the fee's were set. There are no coincidences here. The study data release will set this in motion. Bellco will buy Neph out. My guess $25. The elimination of the med's makes everyone rich. Maybe they intentionally allowed the med prices to rise, to get this set amount. I have been quiet, because I was accumulating.
The blog where one clinic was able to save on drugs. That was the key piece I needed. Special since the government move to a flat fee, then it now makes sense to use these filters.
Seems he would have been a perfect patient for PV-10. Melanoma, Liver and met's. If PV-10 is a miracle drug, how come they are using pembrolizumzb instead? Can the larrys and JZ please explain.
Long was the wrong word. My bad. The stock pop a while back and you immediately claimed you own it. However, you were bashing just prior to it. How come you didn't have the confidence to post that you went long, but were taking credit for it after the move.
NTTG, whose worse? The pumper who doesn't have a clue, or the basher who claims he's always right?
I based my buy on a hunch. Just like you claimed you did, of course, you did it after the facts. The stock actual did go up after my hunch, but stalled.
You held from .48 to here.? You kind of stuck. Didn't you read my stuff about the 515M shares of dilution? I'm slowly acquiring my shares of mining side back, in no hurry. I'm stealing shares of the biotech. Started off with 135K of LVNVF, now have 200K of svacf. Nimbling at this, when cheap shares get offered.
The BLM is the start of getting this off the ground. Could we see the PEA next?
This stood out.
Potentially process ores from other sites on the existing heap leach facilities (toll leaching);
The chocolate honeyhobo rally didn't hold up. Just like spanspur, they stole money out of our glove box. However we were not doing an illicit act like spanspur in the parking lot of a Jack-n-box.
Jzbangedass, you, vorlon and eckgars will also be on "record" in Indianapolis soon now that Jarad Fogle has given prosecutors your names. See how lame this statement is? Interesting how some idiot who has no clue of the history here, makes these statements.
For the real record. I heard about this stock at $3.50, took a small position. The stock jumped, I sold. Ever since, it has caught my curiosity. I follow it, because it amazes me on how the human mind and greed work together. The longs have defend this, when all common sense, should be saying to them"what was I thinking?". The vorlons and Eckgars, who pumped this to $6, were maybe the most unsophisticated investors of them all. So void of character.
I have posted my trades. No one else has, except Vorlon. I have looked at this, with both feet on the ground. I read the Pr's and pointed out what I found troubling. I read the abstracts and presentations and pointed out that the drug needed help. That the lead doctor, made a very obvious statement, that combination maybe required. The average investor, here, didn't understand what he was saying.
I actually hope investors get the news they crave. I just don't see it and I'm honest about that. Some here want failure, but cannot explain their reasons. I invested, saw little and when I raised my concerns, the pumpers attacked. They attacked the fact that I was trying to make reason out of this. The only malice I have with this investment, is the childish pumpers. They made it difficult to have an intelligent discussion. See they feared anyone with the tools to question this, because it didn't fit into their agenda.
Bottom line, I questioned this with integrity. I did my DD and didn't allow greed to blindside me. I didn't have an agenda, like NTTG and Vorlon. I was doing what was right. Maybe I got off course, because of some longs using multiple id's.
Investing in bio's is about understanding what they they are not telling you.
Yes, I am on record for that. I looked at as a contrarian indicator. I was wrong. But everyone get's something wrong. I make claims before they happen, not after. On a couple occasion's, when the stock rose, NTTG has claimed to be long at the time. After the facts, not before.
I'm not here to be the alpha dog like NTTG. Instead, I call them as I see them. Based on the info I have. I had plenty time to get out, so don't worry about me NTTG.
