At the time of his death, DB had a horrific lawsuit against the company which could have been potentially damaging. That is now a non-issue and the company is better off without his shenanigans, and I say this will all due respect to what DB did so well in his heyday. He was, in the end, a liability. The company will perform once the short sludge, which could very well be a residual part of the DB legacy, is covered and gone. That process is ongoing,
YOU were the one who deserted the board and me! So, as a result, noname and I got married---yep, a couple days ago in Denmark! Marriage is an industry in Denmark. On the Island of Aero, you can get married in 24 hours. But, you and I can still be friends, can't we?
Now that I think of it, I recall the last tone of voice by Vento, I think it was, who sounded rather sheepish and coy as though he were trying to slink out at the end. Could be this was in the game-plan which is not in any way connected to or a foreshadowing of the success of the business.
I would not dismiss this as a possibility. Manipulation has been going on for a long, long time but the high short interest situation will subside when all the plans come to fruition and the global sales and expansion will be where they destined to be. Also, the lawsuit which went the way of its plaintiff will no longer cast a shadow.
Are you STILL here? Changed your mind about selling your last remaining 30,000 shares and never posting here again? Did you have an epiphany that selling low is not the way to do it?
Do you have any idea how much revenue, how much word of mouth, how much expansion will be generated via the Telefonica partnership? From the moment this was announced, and though it is taking time to unleash it, I expect this to be critical step forward. You can piddle about with a few stores if you think it's worthwhile "research," but while you are contemplating a sinking ship, I'm awaiting the 5-star cruise about to set sail.
Thanks psych. This crash has had little to do with the business and more to do with manipulation for short covering, imo.
As I've said and continue to say, shorts are having their last dance. Then the party's over.
First, JG is "informally' associated with the company. He is not on the payroll. I might add that his "reactionary" opinions are shared by many of us living here in Israel and who are frustrated with the tripe we see expressed in op-ed pieces in the New York Times, the rag from which he culls and then critiques content. I find his work quite erudite and a fine antidote to the prevailing stupidity. JMO.
Besides, labels like "reactionary" are rather vacuous--don't you think?
Recent announcement re:Japan's new law includes statement saying, ""As a result of Japan's favorable new law, cell therapies like Pluristem's PLX cells can receive market approval in Japan upon completion of Phase II trials when good safety and efficacy data is available. This could potentially reduce approval time down to two or three years..."
Which trials and for which indication? Are these trials in progress or something just beginning? I assume the latter because a more specific trial and indication would have been explicit. My assumption is more a guess.
I don't think anyone has such a misguided expectation of guaranteed returns. But it seems illogical for the stock to behave as it's done for last couple of years. Despite the fact that I believe the high short interest and mega-manipulation is in the process of subsiding, it is frustrating especially given the potential so many longs recognize. I've made good returns with this stock in 2012 and expect to again. The wait has taken much longer than I expected but the expectation is still long and strong.
There's been very high short interest for some time, part of which likely attributed to the former CEO who passed away a couple months ago. Now that legal issues have been resolved with his death and improvements begun under new management over the past year and a half are taking shape, the short interest will very likely fall dramatically over the weeks to come. The protracted period of manipulation is waning and shorts are covering. You are correct that the financials indicate the stock is highly undervalued but that won't be for long, in my opinion.
Please share the "bloated expense sheet"---the one with "no sales results." Please also make available the evidence that, since the last cc, the "subscribers are falling," Also, can you please verify the statement that there are no "Go" models in Targets or RIte Aids because they "can't get into these stores." I'm waiting........
I don't think that intermittent announcements from company would alter the stock price trajectory at this point. I am long and strong and believe the shorts are doing their farewell cover-dance. I don't think the manipulation will last much past the next earnings report.
