    Very simple answer, shorty. You buy 4M shares at 25.75 because you know some good news is coming soon and your stock will go to 35.75. But, if you try to buy now 4M shares at current price, let's say at 25, then you will move price right way to 35.75 and that is not what you want to pay to get 4M shares. You got it?......

    There a is a wild rumor that EXAS might buyout SQNM. That would be the answer why EXAS just raised 100M in 4M shares offering. SQNM just forged strong collaboration with ILMN. ILMN paying SQNM upfront 50M. From fundamental point of view this make sense. EXAS and SQNM are both in genetic diagnostics tests. Also, there is one step above, ILMN might be interested to buy this new entity ( EXAS + SQNM ) because ILMN is getting very interested in genetic diagnostics. This is very wild rumor and very long shot, but not unreasonable one.....

    Well, glass half empty or half full. Colonoscopy is probably the best screening tool for high risk patients ( multiple polyps, adenomatosis, colon cancer family history ). ColoGuard will become med standard for "low risk" screening. I am anesthesiologist ( 40 yrs practice ), and I have seen a number or bowel perforation and at least two deaths.

    One patient died during emergency surgery ( laparotomy ) and the other died post-op from complications, septic shock. True, both patients were old and had some health issues. But, no invasive procedure with or without anesthesia is safe. Healthy Joan Rivers died from IV sedation and "low risk" out-patient procedure. There will be no deaths from ColoGuard. Period. Scope doctors ( GI ) would like to protect their business and they tell us how safe is colonoscopy. As I tell to med students "the best surgery is no surgery and the best anesthesia is no anesthesia"......

    Bottom line: colonoscopies are not more accurate that Cologuard, plus extremely unpleasant procedure and there are significant risks, like bleeding,
    bowel perforation ( meaning emergency bowel surgey, laparotomy ), anesthesia complications, even deaths. ColoGuard will cut the number of colonoscopies as a first line screening procedure, but colonoscopies will not be eliminated, unfortunately in spite of all risks......

    Colonoscopies are considered the gold standard for colon cancer screening.

    MedPage Today reports a recent study from the Annals of Internal Medicine, that suggests it’s much less accurate than initially thought. The problem was with detecting right-sided cancers, where “the test missed just about every cancer in the right side of the colon, where cancers are harder to detect but about 40 percent arise. And it also missed roughly a third of cancers in the left side of the colon.”

    Instead of the 90+ percent improvement in mortality rate that’s commonly quoted, the authors suggest the number is closer to 60 percent to 70 percent.

    That’s a surprising finding, and needs to be validated by future studies. If true, how will it change current recommendations? Will colonoscopies be recommended to be performed more frequently? Should fecal occult stool cards be performed in between colonoscopies? Will this affect the role of virtual colonoscopies?

    "Highly Accurate At-Home Colon Cancer Test Approved
    DNA analysis of stool boosts accuracy rate of Cologuard to more than 90 percent, researchers say"

    HealthDay Reporter

    MONDAY, Aug. 11, 2014 (HealthDay News) -- The U.S. Food and Drug Administration on Monday approved a new at-home, DNA-based stool test that screens for colorectal cancer with more than 90 percent accuracy.

    The decision was based on an FDA panel's unanimous decision in March that the benefits of Exact Sciences Corp.'s Cologuard test outweighed its risks.

    "This approval offers patients and physicians another option to screen for colorectal cancer," Alberto Gutierrez, director of the Office of In Vitro Diagnostics and Radiological Health at the FDA's Center for Devices and Radiological Health, said in an agency news release.

    Last year, nearly 143,000 new cases of colorectal cancer were diagnosed in the United States and almost 50,000 Americans died of the disease, according to the U.S. National Cancer Institute.

    A study published in March in the New England Journal of Medicine found Cologuard had a very high accuracy rate in spotting colon cancer.
