Be careful with COP. Earnings estimate for 2015 is only .84 but annual dividend is $2.92. I like RDS-A better. No position yet. But making a shopping list.
Total shareholders' equity 505,456 from last earnings. What am I missing? I am getting 1.64 a share based on 307.8m shares outstanding.
This is from my Blue Cross and Blue Shield policy.
"Galectin-3 testing is considered experimental, investigational and unproven for all indications including but not limited to, selection of individuals for biventricular testing and to determine prognosis of heart failure."
Remember, they already have a partnership. Probably 50/50. BGMD spent money on the scientific studies and literature validating the need for the test and Abbott spent money on automating the test and paying for the 510(K) filings. BGMD needed Abbott for survival as they were losing sales to competitors on the manual version.
So for starters they would be buying out their partners half.
I agree. The test is FDA approved to use in an effort to keep people from coming back for heart failure (readmisson purposes). Not diagnosis purposes. Like a routine blood pressure test. Don't forget about pressure from Insurance companies.
Fom what I gather is no. Just re-admission at this time. But I believe the thinking is that over time the use for the test will expand, to include for other conditions.
It is already on the Architect. They are already partners with BGMD. Abbott has been working with BGMD for over 5 years on the automated version for US and paid for the 510(k). They wouldn't be wasting their time and money if they didn't see value. Abbott is calling the shots on this and not BGMD. Market is waiting on Abbott.
On November 20, 2014, BG Medicine, Inc. (the "Company") received written notice from the Listing Qualifications Department of The NASDAQ Stock Market LLC ("NASDAQ") indicating that the Company did not meet the minimum $2.5 million in stockholders' equity ("Stockholders' Equity Deficiency"), required by NASDAQ Listing Rule 5550(b)(1), which is one of the alternative tests for continued listing on The NASDAQ Capital Market. In the Company's Form 10-Q filed on August 14, 2014, the Company reported stockholders' equity of $1,696,000 for the period ended September 30, 2014. In addition, the notice indicates that the Company does not meet the other alternative tests of market value of listed securities or net income from continuing operations and therefore, no longer complies with the continued listing rule. The notice has no immediate effect on the listing or trading of the Company's common stock and the common stock will continue to trade on The NASDAQ Capital Market under the symbol "BGMD" at this time.
The notice further provides that the Company has 45 calendar days, or until January 4, 2015, to submit a plan to regain compliance with the continued listing rule. If NASDAQ accepts the Company's plan to regain compliance, the Company may be granted an extension of up to 180 calendar days from the notice, or until May 19, 2015, to evidence compliance with NASDAQ's continued listing rule.
I am telling you. BGMD game has been played out. We will see the 30s.
This stock has no fundamentals. It trades on news and speculation. They have a burn rate of 2m a quarter and are not profitable. That is why they call it a spec stock.
Have been around this stock for years. I believe that it has no credibility. People get tired of hearing excuses over and over again. They really need to just sell. Their games have been exhausted. What ever happened to their royalties on automated version in Europe? Probably get the same thing with US version. Why do U think they do not disclose the terms of the agreements? I have heard the word is that BGMD isn't nothing but a shell company for Abbot. Just give me a dollar and I will be gone! That is my sceptic sides way of thinking. Not bashing. Still wish eveyone the best and hope I am wrong.
That is because they are partners. One of several.
From last 10Q
"Fujirebio Diagnostics, Incorporated, or Fujirebio, on behalf of Abbott, is the first of our automated partners to have filed for 510(k) regulatory clearance of an automated version of the galectin-3 test."
Good post. My thoughts, also. Why did they decide to divvy up shares now? What makes this time any different from the last times major news was released. It signals to me a parting of ways from this stock when looking at everything together. GLTA
