  • Very good call. Being more conservative would have served them well last year. They had explosive growth but because they ridiculously blue skied their numbers they paid a price when they should have been applauded. Regardless, I'll take better than 40% growth for 2015 all day long. Once the Q1 orders are announced (who they are) this will really gain steam. Should have bounced anyway in my view but people go into these calls with expectations about what will be said and if the stock doesn't pop they sell. After we get the passive guys out this will move up. My opinion only.

    It's an exercise in futility to do that. That is the problem with stock investments these days. Anyone with a "fund" who has a plausible background can scream fire about any stock. Since Left's entire take was backward looking, and PLUG's history was ugly, it had legs. The only way for PLUG to stay relevant over the long term is to produce. They do need to hit their numbers and they should have been smart enough to know that when they got too feverish with their estimates last year. The blame for that is squarely on Andy. No way this stock shouldn't be up after the call I heard but it will be for sure after he announces the first of the two Q1 orders.

    Great news released in 8-K this morning on the Ebola Study. The FDA doesn't approve stuff like that unless there is justification for it. Remember that the DETECT CTE study results are due out in January in coordination with Boston University. Keep in mind there has never been a way to test for that disease on live patients, only autopsy. That will be yet another breakthrough. Best to all in 2015!

    I only go by what has been documented and what seem like theoretical next steps. I do speculate about what should happen given a certain set of facts (or should be among a group of things that should happen), next. My point regarding the Hemopurifier is that it is clearly NOT an unknown entity here. Its safety is pretty well documented and its efficacy sure seems likely (even according to a couple of Emory doctors who are working on what may best be described as a competitive treatment). It is also an adjunct treatment which means it can and should be used in all or almost all of these cases where its proper administration may be assured. Viral load reduction is appropriate for ANYONE who is fighting infectious diseases. Unless someone can convince me this 100% does not work, and published results from a level 4 biohazard lab mean much more to me than those who write with dubious motives, then I will scream from the hilltops for more hospitals that are treating these patients here and abroad to use it as common practice for all these diseases.

  • Sometime in the next 24 hours I will release an article which will discuss the Ebola funding provisions in the budget that is due to be voted on by Congress tomorrow. I want to let people know that there are numerous public companies that are likely to impacted by this from those offering drugs and other treatments like Hemopurifier therapy to protective wear, thermometers, high powered cleansing solutions, waste disposal and so on. It is important to note that the world often follows the lead of the U.S. government so we are very likely to see more health agencies and governments around the world follow suit. If you do not subscribe to my blog, edvadailydotcom, please do so and when it is released you will be notified.

    I Told You This Was Coming

    Not everyone will sit and wait anymore. Some company will now jump in and help them cross the finish line. They are too close and there are too many benefits available for the company that partners with them.

  • This is why you need to have some patience with science. I will have a write-up on this in just a little while. This is earth shattering news and I think people will continue to wake up to its significance in the days and weeks ahead. For the first time we may see major news coverage of HYSR. Of course no one can guarantee that but I see it as likely.

    I don't think there is enough information available about timing and commercialization efforts to offer something that is really fair. I can definitely say that the latest See Thru Equity price target is pretty low. I will detail some of my thinking tomorrow and you should have a better sense.

  • I have written several articles about Aethlon on my blog, edvadailydotcom, and for those wondering what to do rather than watching the tape trying to figure out when to get in or reflexively get out because you are ill informed about the investment and what this company does (or don't know what is directly ahead) you probably need to consider some important points that loom pretty large in the future:

    -35 Hospitals in the U.S. were designated yesterday to treat future Ebola patients. There is a $150M plus earmark in the spending bill, that Congress (in theory) must pass by December 11 to continue funding the government, for these U.S. hospitals to, in part, be outfitted with the best equipment to deal with these patients. Hard to imagine that the Hemopurifier will not be part of that equation and may well be why the company sought to raise what it did so quickly.

    -Kick off of the FDA authorized human trials for HCV patients in the U.S.

    -Update from the company on pathways to commercialization. This is what many are wanting to get a first look at in some broader yet nonetheless comprehensive way. Our assumption is that we will see this in coming weeks.

    These items are just a sampling of the obvious. I have been surprised on several occasions lately in terms of positive items that come up unexpectedly. The Time Magazine recognition stands out and in my view has created the kind of interest in the company where it would be impossible to guess at the number of conversations they are having with interested parties on multiple levels be they potential partners, health organizations or governments. I am by no means telling anyone that they should buy anything but if you are caught looking today you may miss the forest for the trees.

    Lastly, I will be posting an article at some point tomorrow morning which I think many may find interesting. As always do your own due diligence or consult with a trusted financial advisor prior to buying any equity.

    AEMD: India Math

    I get the comment, yes, which is why I used such a modest penetration number. A report by the World Health Organization from 2012 put 25% of India's population having access to healthcare with 50% projected by 2015. As I said, the per treatment cost is likely to come down with mass production but it is likely the percentage treated will go up. Point being that $2b for one indication in one country makes the revenue possibilities both dynamic and dramatic.

    Something to consider as we await the Medicity study results. There are some 12 Million cases of Hepatitis C in India currently. If just 2% of that number receive one, three-day, treatment protocol with the Hemopurifier annually, we are talking 240,000 treatments at a known current cost of $7,400 per treatment. That yields approximately $1.7b in treatment revenue. Of course once the Hemopurifier is mass produced costs may be reduced but it's also possible 5-10% of all cases receive treatment. Critically, this is just one of dozens of indications that the Hemopurifier may ultimately be able to treat and in only one country (India) if talking about Hep C's 150M+ cases worldwide. If the upcoming results are as many suspect, hard to imagine that AEMD is not soon valued in the billions. I strongly suspect we are looking at a once in a generation kind of company here.

    Near Term Clinical Progression Goals

    edvacourt edvacourt Nov 20, 2014 12:41 PM Flag

    I agree with your assessment vvvvv-the Hep C results should really move AEMD. In my view AEMD is extraordinarily undervalued at this moment. Market Cap could have a "b" after it at some point next year. There are too many examples of biotechs that have that kind of value, are pre-revenue and don't seem to have anything like the potential of Aethlon.

    One of the things many people have worried about over time is that HYSR seems to operate in a bubble and other than the UCSB deal and some advancement pronouncements basically there isn't much to show for anything. The announcement this morning that the University of Iowa is now engaged as well can only be viewed as an affirmation of the science and perhaps a sign that Hypersolar is moving into the stage where they have a real shot at the 1.5V level. The prior announcement that they had figured out how to separate hydrogen and oxygen gas bubbles in the same reactor we believe is a precursor to an update on the voltage itself. It is quite possible with this new agreement in place that the next announcement we hear will have something to do with voltage level. It also seems appropriate that that would come after today's announcement. As always do your own due diligence.

    To develop a safer shortcut is perhaps among the biggest things one can announce in scientific exploration. The good news about this is that it is likely just the first in a series of announcements. Many have screamed that HYSR has been too slow but science is painstaking and it can't be rushed. I'd say for a little group like HYSR that is trying to make history they have come a long way in a short period of time. UCSB must be very proud today as well. I look for this to test the highs again in the next couple of months.

    How close are they?

    by jarangutang21 Jul 27, 2014 5:33 PM
    edvacourt edvacourt Jul 27, 2014 7:03 PM Flag

    Great question and one that is only answered by actually getting there. The only thing people have to go by is the actual evidence which is as follows:

    1.2V announced- February 2014
    1.0V announced-August 2013
    0.75V announced-May 2013
    .020V announced-January 2013

    Major milestones left to achieve:

    1.23V-theoretical voltage for splitting Water into Hydrogen and Oxygen
    1.5V-necessary for mass production

    So the next move is big for many reasons. No one is thinking that they get to 1.5V at next announcement in my view. But do they make a10% leap which would take them to 1.32V and over a major milestone or do they make it 20% which would take them to 1.44V and within the most minuscule of striking distances to the promised land? My guess is between 1.3-1.35V. This will and should be seen as an enormous accomplishment and not only will Hypersolar receive scientific community credit, they should receive considerable interest from the business community (if indeed they haven't already). Just my two cents.

    Interesting week behind us. Either Tim Young or his PR person must have realized that people don't really understand exactly what (and perhaps how important) it is that HYSR is doing in terms of its drive to literally fuel our future, whether for large industry, home or transport vehicles (to begin with). They have a little ways to go but I think it is pretty encouraging that even after getting the day-trader crowd out at the end of the week this stock seems to want to keep building a base and move higher. The fact that it is below .05 right now astounds me given where it has the potential to go with the next meaningful announcement. It traded 60M shares between Tuesday and Wednesday which seems to show two things. One, that investors who have followed HYSR have not forgotten about it and two, new investors are again beginning to take note. We saw successive days of HYSR trading over 100M shares in March and my guess is that kind of volume may again be in our short term future. In any event it is not a great idea to go to sleep on this one. This is my view alone. As always do your own due diligence or consult a trusted financial advisor.

    Right. And you have researched what they are actually doing and spoken with the CEO? Have you reviewed the joint patents filed with UCSB, one of the leading research universities in the United States? They have sold stock to continue the research and pay for SEC filings, period. The CEO makes bubkis and is incentivized through a modest share structure. You can think anything you want but the science is quite real and is advancing. I expect major announcements within the next 90 days. If people are impatient they clearly don't get the implications of what is being done at UCSB. The Nature article was a big clue and was written by someone with ties to the JCAP research being done at UC Berkeley (Berkeley Labs). Hmm...wonder why that was? What is there interest in what is happening at Hypersolar? People have to use their heads. It is easy to be a naysayer but this company is going places. Yes, they are tiny now AND they make no attempt to hide that. One significant breakthrough (like surpassing 1.23V) will change the whole equation overnight. If people can afford to be just a little bit patient I believe they will be rewarded here. Just my view, not an endorsement for anyone to do anything.

    Not when you are talking about soluble bags and cheap ingredients, no, much cheaper than extracting hydrogen with expensive non-renewable sources and then bearing the shipping costs to get it to wherever it is needed. Onsite production is the wave of the future whether HYSR is involved and makes it happen or not.
