Expected to announce snap elections. This will be at 1:00 eastern time. Things could get volatile the last few hours of trading.
This is the first of dozens of patents that they have. All they need is FDA approval, licence this to the highest bidder and move on to the next phase of R&D. Done right this company can capitalize on its intellectual property while not giving away the whole store.
If you have been following ACTC / OCAT as long as I have you should have heard a couple of years ago when they said their biggest problem was too many small retail investors and not enough institutional investors. So what did they do? Get a NASDAQ up-list, get on the Russell 2000 which requires funds to buy in. They let the scared small time people run away while continuing on a methodical process to make Dr. Lanza's dream realized.
I have most of my OCAT in a Roth IRA which I can't withdraw from for many years. My goal is in a decade to have cool million in that account which will be available to me tax free. My plan may or may not work but at least I have a plan. OCAT is for a quick swing trade or a long time hold. Don't let the 'No products until 2020 crowd' scare you. Just decide if this is the right investment for your time frame....
I have no position in NBG. I was about to get in on Friday but hesitated. Was hoping for a meaningful discussion here...
At the same time, the steep budget cuts Greece has to implement in return for the new bailout are bound to cause more pain for its economy and citizens. The rescue program foresees a 2.3% contraction of Greece’s gross domestic product this year, followed by a 1.3% decrease next year.
The deal also expects that shareholders, junior creditors and senior bondholders in Greece’s battered banks will take losses before the lenders will be recapitalized. That will likely cause further uncertainty for a financial sector already reeling from capital controls that are unlikely to be lifted anytime soon.
Does this mean down before up? I want to jump in at some point. But it still seems a little scary now.
Netflix was a $5.00 stock 10 years ago. Just broke $700.00. Good things take time which is why I have this in a Roth IRA. When I retire that will be some nice tax free income...
I was playing solitaire on my I-Pad last night and a full screen ad for Empire and Allies came up. It had a good looking picture and a caption stating 'Over 2,00,000 Players".
Nice way of targeting mobile gamers without spending too much money.

MARLBOROUGH, Mass.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Ocata Therapeutics, Inc. , a leader in the field of Regenerative Ophthalmology™, announced that a study has been published that includes top-line, positive results in Asian patients who were treated with Ocata’s proprietary RPE cells, manufactured using its DeltaCell™ Technology.
These new data support previously reported positive long-term safety and signs of visual improvement, as presented in The Lancet of October 15th, 2014. The Korean study published online in Stem Cell Reports features twelve months of post-transplant follow-up data from four Asian patients; two with Stargardt’s macular degeneration (SMD) and two with dry age-related macular degeneration (AMD).
“The results of this study conducted by CHA Biotech in Asian patients support the findings published in The Lancet in October 2014 and further underscores our leadership in regenerative ophthalmology,” said Paul K. Wotton, Ph.D., President and Chief Executive Officer. “The safe treatment of a total of forty two patients across multiple studies with this novel therapeutic approach in geographically distinct patient populations is encouraging. We look forward to the planned initiation of our comprehensive Phase 2 safety study in dry AMD and a pivotal study in SMD, two disabling diseases where there is no cure available today.”
In this study there was no evidence of adverse proliferation, tumorigenic behavior, ectopic tissue formation, or other serious safety issues related to the transplanted cells. Although designed as a safety study, visual acuity improved 9–19 letters in three patients and remained stable (+1 letter) in one patient. Vision was measured using the widely accepted standard for visual acuity testing, the Early Treatment Diabetic Retinopathy Study visual acuity exam.
Robert Lanza, M.D., Chief Scientific Officer of Ocata Therapeutics ( OCAT ) and co-senior author of the paper, commented, “These results support the potential

It will probably drift down a bit. The real story will be the companies explanation for the saline failure and guidance as to when they can re-submit data. From what I have read there is no controversy about the efficacy of the drug, just the unexplained results from the saline injected control group.
Since there are no analysts following this stock I wonder who is going to downgrade them? You sound like someone fishing for cheap shares.
