  • Corked, you can try and revise history all you want, but you have been a blind backer of Ma and his strategy for a long time. I was here as a mm on the inside at 4 to 5 cents years ago before you even thought about investing here. Since you seem to like to go back and check posts, go back many years and you will see my postings. I made much money accumulating there and selling into the GE rally. You are clueless about many long termers here. That is a fact.
    You think my pointing out the weaknesses of Ma is whining. You think my Chinese bashing is racist? You are like all liberals who deflect in such ways.
    Again, I would love to meet you at the shareholder meeting. What say, you my friend? Is that too cooky a request?

  • These are the only 2 guys who defend Vaso and Ma. Yet they never provide no facts. Its a sad joke, but PJ should be careful because posting as an employee on a company investment board is not too sharp. And corked is a low level shill who refuses to his reasons for his optimism: "stock is being accumulated"

    Company cant keep an accountant. That is a very dangerous area. One that Dempsey warned about a long time ago. Good luck to longs still here.

    Your knowledge of a companys stock value is very limited, to say the least. If you took away the dilution caused by the acquisitions, and took away the note, and Rios and Lieberman fiasco, and added that money misspent for a buyback, stock price would be much higher. Especially since china buys have added nothing. So again, given the stocks performance, you are as blind as Ma.
    And if you want to see how old I am, I suggest again we meet at the shareholder meeting and have a little fun. Ok, #$%$???????????????? That's, if this company is still in business by then.

    Options now have a 25 cent offer as all at .15 and .20 have been bought. Stock going higher, no better signal.

    Corked, you cant possibly be as stupid as you sound.... Say nothing and all will be fine?

    Big volume selloff demands use of company funds for buyback. Also, demands comment from company that this is nothing more than tax selling. Wake up Ma

  • Over 4000 jan 2 calls done today, most bought on the offer at .15. Who is buying and why? This post makes much sense with these call purchases in mind. Big leverage here and much money to be made,,,,,,,follow the money

    Haywood said there are two key developments to watch over the next month or so: a potential FDA approval on a medical use for krill oil and changes in the company's leadership.

    Hey racOFF, you sold out, so why bother posting on a board where u have no skin in the game. Just like rosie, why don't you get a life. Stock will be much higher soon enough. And your 15 cent sale will seem more than silly. CFO '/s departure is meaningless. He was not one of the insiders to benefit from stock ownership. All remaining are large stock holders and have the same interests as shareholders here.

  • Another article on China from NYTimes. "Chinese are incapable of having negotiating conversation" Sure sounds like a racist comment to me..

    The Geneva talks aimed to reduce global tariffs on $1 trillion in high-tech goods, be it small-bore consumer electronics like video game consoles or big-ticket items like magnetic resonance imaging machines and advanced semiconductors.

    Experts say a breakthrough could have saved as much as $15 billion a year in tariffs and generated hundreds of thousands of jobs across the globe. But the talks broke down in the middle of a face-off between China and South Korea over liquid-crystal display television screens, a market where China strongly wants to expand. After difficult negotiations, South Korea was willing to lower tariffs on LCDs. But the Korean delegation wanted China to offer at least a face-saving concession, most likely in advanced lithium batteries, a product in which China already has a billion-dollar trade surplus, according to an American official with knowledge of the talks. China rebuffed appeals from American and Korean negotiators, even from the head of the W.T.O.

    “I think it says very profound things about China’s ability to negotiate,” the American official said. “The world’s most successful trader of information technology is incapable of having a negotiating conversation.”

    For the Obama administration, the failure of the technology trade talks could bode ill for its broader trade agenda. Negotiators in Washington this week tried to work out the final bumps in the Trans-Pacific Partnership, a major trade accord that does not include China but does include many trade partners in Asia. The technology deal was supposed to be the lowest-hanging fruit on the international trade agenda.

    At 17 cents. And more size there. No doubt another vote of confidence in management's strategy.

    Corked, I am against any Chinese, Black, Hispanic, Indian,or Caucasian CEO who runs a company I OWN into the ground (as defined by share price decline), lies about it, and increases his pay substantially doing same. Now, you may be more forgiving than I, or you may believe in Ma's personal practice of wealth redistribution, or you just may be plain stupid; I don't know. To defend this strategy after 3 years of failure, I think the latter.
    But how about this since we will never agree , lets meet at the next shareholder meeting, and you can call me racist and I will call you stupid and we will see what happens.
    And, in the interim, why don't you do a little reading on the increasing nationalism in China as it applies to our corporation doing business there. How they steal IP and force our companies to submit to competitive practices well outside of the WTO. That left leaning paper NY Times has many good articles about this which, hopefully, wont offend your progressive sensibilities.

    "Racist". You truly are a progressive nut job. I criticize a failed Chinese centric business plan here, legitimizing my point of view by highlighting a 50% cut in shares price since instituted, and you play the race card. Your post also have the liberal bias of "they are just doing whats best for us cause they know best". I have no patience for the helpless agenda that your kind spew. .
    No one can prove a counter factual. So, my eecp trial will remain an unknown. You say it appears they knew trail would fail. They were(are) clueless, just like you. But don't worry, they have your best interests at heart, so keep whistling past the graveyard.

    hey f u corked. This is a management team "actually in the real business" who do not have a clue on a proper business plan. All the proof one needs for the real, "real business world" is the stock price and performance since their Chinese plan was instituted 3 years ago. Please point to one success over those years.
    EECP was always going to be a tough road. But all who bought years ago bought into the attempt to make it a profitable, cardio option. All that was needed was to use GE money to get a real trial started; 3 years ago. Ma abandoned that for his pay package and China connections. That is a fact.
    Now, you can hope that these overpaid knuckleheads running this company have a "plan". The only plan I see is their milking company for their own personal gain at shareholder expense.

    A proper trial with realistic FDA approved endpoints has never been done. PEECH was flawed. Since then, many more indications have proven to be positively effected by eecp. A trial, well run, could focus on strokes, something Ma said they might do.
    Point is, eecp will never see real increased sales without a proper trial. Ma knows this and has decided against it so that he can use funds for his salary and his Chinese buddies(acquisitions).

    That is, in fact, the strategy they have employed since the China acquisition. And where has it gotten us. All their acquisitions have been a bust. And the latest one, taking on debt, is a total disgrace. You vote more of the Yikes.
    EECP is Vaso. Going away from it has been an utter failure. Becoming a Chinese company has been an utter failure. Acquisitions have been an utter failure. Ma, Castle, and Leiberman are as worthless as #$%$ on a Bull.
    Vaso must return to its core: EECP. But, that cannot be done without a real trial. Use all monies to do that which should have been started 3 years ago. Partner with Dalio or Stony Brook to get it done. Also, get leaner to support company and show shareholders you are serious; take pay cuts.....everyone.

    Don't understand the Christmas comment. They are not getting any money here. Ma now owns 2.7 million shares and Mov owns about a million.
    Well, they didn't turn around and sell shares immediately, like some do. So, that is a positive.

    You may be right. But, 12 units of something. I assumed whole eecp unit, but may be incorrect.

    That's all I have. I found it on a site when doing some work on the Life Enhancement Tech acquisition. Its a paid service if you want more detail. But, if these are their best units, you can do the math, it would be a decent addition to Q. I doubt very much they are putting this in inventory. So, who is buying? As always here, we get no real details from the company.
