Well, folks it's obvious that it took dickgasinu 14 years to obtain that BS from U of M he proudly swore he has. That pretty much sums up the intelligence level on the short side.
Wasting mommy and daddy's money at college for 14 years to get some sort of BS (in what field, pray tell?), and then being proud about it! That is just too funny. So which "M" was it that allowed dickgasinu to hang around for 14 years? Sounds like a character straight from Doonesbury.
This guy sounds just like nomo. I don't suppose it's another reincarnation of him? Their persistence is notable. Their efforts at spinning tall tales of FUD --- not so much.
You must not know anything about options. It's obvious you are looking at the open interest on this strike levels, not actual recent trading volume. The open interest reflects trades opened many months ago, before the A7 results were revealed. So a lot of people had bought the higher strike calls, anticipating a good payoff when the pps soared after excellent A7 news. Instead the options went to virtual 0. So they can't be sold for even a penny, so investors hang on to them in case of a Hail Mary happening. Many of these options were sold (as covered calls), so there is no need to close them out.
There is nothing weird going on with VICL options. Got it?
I meant to say that I was too early (not too late) with my option play, expecting something to happen sooner than it actually did. (I hate time travel!)
I did not buy Feb calls, but instead did buy May 1.5 calls. Reason: I have often been burned on anticipating key company events (using options). While I was correct on the events happening (the single most important item for an option to increase in price), I was often too late on the actual happening, thus causing the option to decrease down to zero if I held for the entire time.
My general rule of thumb in these kind of situations: If I expect an event to happen in X months time, for buying call options to profit from that event occurring, I buy options 3*X months out. In this case, 2 months became 6 months (with May being the closest option).
I would rather be sold worthless shares by a "snake oil purveyor" in the guise of Mullan than by the politicking mad man known as JW. The switch of CEO's is like night and day for this company. One big reason why the future appears brighter than it has for some time.
An amazing day for option trading on RCP: 9226 calls traded vice only 2 puts for the entire trading session. Of the 9226 calls, 42% traded at the ask, indicating the investors were buying.
Somebody(s) is looking to 2014 for some good reasons to buy this stock. The question is, for those
not owning options in this stock at the moment: 6 months from now, will you look back to this time frame and ask yourself "Why didn't I see what was coming? Why didn't I pull the trigger and buy some cheap options?"
Rick, the trend lines you refer to (the 50- and 200-day moving averages) are indeed meeting, but at $1.68. Thus this meeting of lines holds no import for the current stock price.
One thing to note is that the stock has based during the last 15 trading sessions between $1.21 and $1.41. The one line I would keep an eye on is the 20-day MA at $1.33 (the midline of the bollinger bands). Any failure to rise above this line is negative. Any break below $1.20 is also negative.
This information is only useful to those who are trading the stock for differential of pennies and nickels. Frankly I find there are a lot of more fluid stocks better suited to that kind of activity. RCP remains a thesis stock, much of which remains unproven in 2013. What 2014 brings is the reason why longs remain invested.
"The only two people I know that have tried it have had ZERO results."
I love it! Here is NOMO THE SCIENTIST proving that he is the farthest thing FROM BEING a scientist. Yes, here we are folks, where the scientist has drawn definitive conclusions based on a non-random sample of TWO (2!!) people who tried anatabloc.
What a joke. This post was written by no scientist, by no statistician, and nobody capable of understanding basic probability. Hey Nomo, why don't you try tossing a coin twice and telling us if it is a biased coin based on the fact that it came up Heads twice?
Once again, nomo rips off his own fake facade as somebody supposedly skilled in the art of science and statistics. I love it!
Meanwhile, as I said -- I'm flattered to see the attacks against me start up again. With big5inct's approval, I repeat here his colorful response to nomo THE GREAT, who had lobbed another grenade in my direction.
"In your (nomo's) desperate attempt to bolster your self-esteem, and try to scare newcomers by sounding "sciencey" you have again proven chipper's point.
You keep referring to your "regression model." Over the summer, it seemed you were using the term "regression" in almost every post, sprinkling phrases like "updating my linear regression, the fit of my trendline . . ." and "I did a quick regression based on . . . " into your dire warnings. To quote the immortal Inigo Montoya, "You keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means."
Your use of the term "regression" has betrayed your ignorance of what regression analysis is and how it is used. You appear to be confusing a trendline with a fitted line plot (a tool sometimes used to graphically display the results of a linear regression). Like the sprinkles on a sundae, your use of the term serves only to provide the illusion of complexity, trying to divert attention from the poor quality of the dish.
You can't muck out the stable, put it in a bowl and call it "ice cream."
Finally from me to Nomo: You are not a scientist nor are you anything close to being a statistician. There were many posts where I offered you opportunities to show you knew basic statistical processes and computations. You NEVER once replied to them except to ignore the challenge and change the subject. Shall I go back and rerun those Nomo? Do you want folks to be reminded of the fraud that you are?
It's always nice to know when I get under the skin of the feces-flinging shorts here. Those folks who operate similarly to Marie Huber and associates in order to try and bring down a company and its stock price. That article on their nefarious practices should have been an eye-opener for readers here on how these people operate. That would include all those here who, for whatever magical, mysterious reason spend time bashing a buck thirty three company. Nobody I know in my circle of friends and work associates would ever spend their time this way. And most of you don't either, I presume.
So, why bother? You know why --- the people they represent are very afraid. Period. What they don't realize is that THEIR very efforts are the REASON why so many longs continue to buy RCP stock: there must be value here for someone to complain so loudly about a stock that supposedly should collapse under its own weight of worthlessness. When the shorts end up weeping, they will have only themselves to blame. It's quite funny, really.
Well, I couldn't have said this better myself (and I didn't but you did). Your words express exactly the situation: a person striving so much for credibility that he blows it out the other end. Nomo -- for a long time, you have gone way over the edge in self-delusion and self-importance.
You are not a scientist nor are you anything close to being a statistician. There were many posts where I offered you opportunities to show you knew basic statistical processes and computations. You NEVER once replied to them except to ignore the challenge and change the subject.
You are a FRAUD, nomo ---- always have been, always will be.
You are claiming that you have intellect? Haven't heard that one in awhile, coming from someone who isn't science based or knows anything about statistical analysis. Read the document, nomo --- boy does it reek of you and yours.
You mention reverse conversions. I have seen the large numbers of call option trades but have seen no evidence yet of reverse conversions. I wonder if you know what these are and if you are capable of spotting them in the option trade stream. Please enlighten me, as I would love to look for RCs in the stream if they have existed in the past. Do you have any dates for RCs occurring? If so, how many new shares were created on those dates? Thanks much.
In flinging their feces in the faces of RCP longs, the shorts repeatedly, ad nauseum, claim that they do not operate illegally. That what they do is all above board. And that the non-shorts are supposed to believe them.
Recently on the SEC daught gov site, where the gov is followed by a slash, then "admin", then another slash, then "2013", then another slash, then finally "33-9488.pdf", you will read an SEC order against Marie Huber and colleagues for manipulating DNDN's stock price a few years ago. The Background section lays out in gory detail the efforts Marie and her partner went to in order to drive down DNDN's pps. For one of the few times in recent history, this hedge fund team was busted for stock manipulation.
You will see the lengths that some shorts go to in order to trash a company's reputation, including getting into the details of chemical and biological MOAs to the point where they could make the claim that Provenge (DNDN's product) would kill people.
See for yourself if the actions taken in this document sound familiar to what you read on this board from the shorts. Just keep in mind that the flingin' can get furious at times.
Everyone should expect the shorts to continue to launch their attacks on posters who post facts and on the very chemical and biological basis on which this company now rests. Why? Because this time period, during the month of December, will be their opportunity to spread turds of all shapes and sizes until:
1) Shareholder meeting at the end of the month
2) Turnover of CEO duties and other board members
We should expect a lot of forward looking news from these events, particularly if some of the board members decide to attend the meeting and report back here. I will be unable to attend, given the timing of the meeting. But for those who go, there will be a list of good questions to ask at the meeting.
Bottom line: Continue to expect to see what the shorts are throwing out (flinging feces I think is the right phrasing for this kind of activity). For a stock that is "only" $1.30 (their current argument why the company is lousy), I continue to be amazed at all the effort put into trying to destroy the company, given that their thesis is that it will go bankrupt very soon, and all without their help. Why don't the shorts just sit back, shut up, and watch STSI go bankrupt? Why all the effort?
Logic seems to suggest that there is something here that is unpalatable to them. Can't wait to see what it is.
Actually Izof attacks anyone who misrepresents facts. You remember 'facts', right? Equivalent to "truth". And you think there's something wrong with posting the facts.
Your head is still not screwed on right. It's amazing how you guys continue to attack the messenger, instead of the 'facts' reported by the messenger. Oh right, I forgot. You can't attack the facts, because they ARE facts. Ok, then .... well go ahead and continue to attack Izof and everybody else who posts facts and see how far it gets you.
I happen to disagree with you on what the STSI chart foretells, if anything. If you look at the indicators, RSI is still below 30, MACD still negative, and we are approaching the point where the 50-day MA will cross below the 200-day MA. The positive news from this chart is the continued basing of the stock price in the $1.30 area, indicating to me that the stock is 'comfortable' at this level until some news comes that will propel it higher or lower. I would be greatly and proudly humbled if your chart readings of higher prices ahead came true (absent any news).
For those who actually have a STSI thesis in mind, and adhere to it, recall that these day-to-day ups and downs are not as important as seeing the bigger picture and its ultimate impact on the pps. That is why, with this stock in particular, patience is required. This is why my STSI shares sit in my IRAs, home to stocks with long term expectations.
freepngnow loves to employ the tactic of the Big Lie, hoping that once told, the retold many times, that somehow it will become 'fact'. But there are many more on this board who know a lie when it is floated
here, much like a turd in a toilet bowl. I'm sure he'll be popping a few more along the way. All this board needs to do from time to time is flush away the lies. I personally like my bowl fresh and clean.
Frazier just got lucky with MSFT? Tell us, nomo, which stocks have you gotten "lucky" with (that is, you did no analysis, no due diligence, but they turned out to be 10-baggers or more)?
Far be it from someone with a little foresight who believed in his stock thesis with 100% conviction. Yep, those people just don't exist.
