    I thought that this was a fair conference call. Based on the earning release and conference call, I do not see this stock moving up very quickly. Military/Navy business has been very good. But very little progress on the commercial side of the business. Not sure why they have not closed the England facility. I have not seen any progress in the European market or global market. The commercial business has been discussed for years but with little progress. Hopefully the additional sales force will show positive results next quarter. I think that over all things are moving in a positive direction but some tough decision must be made for example in Europe. In my opinion, costs could be reduced by closing the office and hiring sales reps on a commission basis. This is definitely a hold and I also think the current price is too low. Stock should be a minimum of $11 ($1.10 per reverse split). Need a good IR person to promote company to investment community.

    Sentiment: Hold

    Great list, however it is also important to know their average purchase price. Funds that bought low could exit fairly easily for a nice profit. Those that bought near current levels are more likely to stay in for the longer term and hopefully better profit margins.

    What is the real price range for Ariad Pharma in Franfurt today?

    Sentiment: Strong Buy

  • Two excellent reports within the last two day. First OPCO have defended one of their patents and won again. Second they delivered an excellent presentation to LD Micro Cap yesterday. Be sure to listen to the one hour presentation. In addition some volume is beginning to increase in OPCO. In my opinion, OPCO is still way under valued.

    Sentiment: Strong Buy

    5:55 AM and ARIA is trading in the $9.50 to $9.65 range. Looks like it might start Monday on the plus side.

    Sentiment: Buy

    Apparently you have not checked their extensive patent portfolio. They even won on appeals court with Lilly. A $10/share share price is very conservative. Hope you are short! I bought at $2.70 and do not plan on selling yet.

    Sentiment: Buy

  • Apparently some of you are and familiar with M&A. I see a number of posts worry that their is no positive news from ARIA or and of the potential buy-out pharma companies. I owned ASTX for a number of years and the message board was similiar to this one. Please note, both ARIA and any pharma companies that have talked with ARIA have to sign an NDA. I look at the fact that no one has denied the rumors as postitive. It appears that at least two pharma companies have signed NDAs, otherwise they would deny these rumors. Even if a buy-out does not occur ARIA is worth more than $10/share. Check their patents.

    Sentiment: Buy

    I'M NOT A JOHNNY COME LATELY, LISTEN UP...

    Mclain,
    I agree that OPCO is a good company with slow steady growth. They have slowly reduced their debt and finally turned a profit last quarter. In my opinion this stock and company has been undervalued for a long time.
    I noticed Halevay's comment regarding OPCO being run like a mom and pop operation rather than a public entity. In a number of ways this can be a good thing considering that many "public entities" are heavily in debt and are nowhere near making a profit. Please note, OPCO has a strong insider ownership which can be a good thing. I do think that their newly hired IR person needs to do a much better job of communicating with the investment community. I have not seen anything from IR, and if he does not produce I would fire him.
    All that said, I like and own OPCO and believe that their stock is undervalued and hopefully the stock price will remain above $1 and finally make a nice break-out.

    Sentiment: Strong Buy

  • In addition to delisting the GSE SEC 8K filing on Friday 1-10-2013 (it can be found on SEC.gov or in the news section of Yahoo Finance), is also a potential problem. This 8K filing was a Waiver Seventh Amendment to Senior Credit Facility. I recommend that you read this 8-K and come to your own conclusion (I would be interested in your thoughts). However, if GSC can not meet creditor requirement this company could real problems. Remember creditors get paid before stock holders. It is surprising that a company with $500M in revenue and small float is below $0.80. Debt and competitive pressure is a big problem

    Sentiment: Hold

    Why would anyone be jealous of you. You have posted many negative comments about QTWW for a long time. You were bearish even when the stock was below $5.

    Sentiment: Hold
