unfortunately there don't seem to be any on the ONCS board. Any positive movement is a pump and when it goes down it's because the technology is flawed... I'm not saying that there is not manipulation at times- what stock let alone penny stock did not get manipulated at one time or even fairly regularly at points, but to claim any positive movement is a pump or when it goes down it's because it's a big fraudulent company or whatever #$%$ they are spewing out this time is just sadly funny.
Could it be that it has been essentially promised by ONCS that they will meet all of their landmark milestones for 2014? Has the thought that people are expecting to hear things in the next month or two about P2 results that are OBVIOUSLY looking positive?! No- a 11% pump makes MUCH more sense!
All this b.s. for what? There's 3 options here. Either you're holding, adding, or not. Sure you could trade here and there but I think it's pretty futile to try to nail the swings each time to make it worthwhile enough to just not ADD WHEN IT IS CHEAP and take a ride! Granted, I'm not one to make $50,000 day trades as such. If you could spot these trends on a stock like this great. If I was going to do that I would choose a more reliable pattern or stock. This is an investment whether short or long term. There is money to be made by those that obviously have a clue. Granted anything can happen- but I really like all the (potential) catalysts on the list at the moment and truly see them coming into fruition soon.
If you don't believe in the company, fine. You want to trade it- fine. As I am in with about a $.50 avg. (I bought quite a bit in the high $.70's) I am happy to be sitting on these with that price. I really feel that ONCS has a pretty great thing going. I feel this thing going places and I'm holding and adding as much as I can on the cheap until that happens. GLTAL
Sentiment: Strong Buy
If you look at all my other posts 1 out of 1000 is a short call. Not that my long calls are so hot either. Lol. Just saying this was an overhyped ipo. Not saying they aren't a fair buy around $20, but AT THIS POINT I honestly don't see what has really changed.
Transparent? My buddy sold all of his LOCO shares over 10 years ago for around $17. What makes you think they're so great this time around? I hardly ever short, but at $37 it was a pretty easy call. I'm out at $30 and happy.
Congrats on a good hit, however you are delusional if you think this is going to $500 anytime soon, if ever. Lol
Kudos on getting a Vitamix for $6.99!! I got a good deal on mine, but that's amazing. My best score was a brand new Herman Miller office chair for $10.
Financially I see Meijer as very sound, however as far as Chicagoland goes, I think the locations are really not well thought out IMO. I don't know if it is because of sq footage and expense consideration or not, but the Mariano's locations are pretty brilliantly laid out. Granted Mariano's pays a premium as far as monthly expense for sure, but they really dominating in a marketing sense. Yes- I do have a marketing background, and although I have a fair amount of financial experience I tend to give the balance sheet more of an allowance than I should.
You are (or at least seem) very well versed in this industry, which I am really not. I am however, well versed on the pulse of Chicagoland and have grown up in the Jewel/Dominick's era of dominance. Some would even throw Walgreens in there... These days with the Chicagoland market the way it is, I see Mariano's as a definite TRUSTED player in the market. As I had said in a previous post, I was in to WFM years ago and watched that expand into what it is today (although I think we will see more of a decline as Organic and Gluten Free options become more prevalent throughout the marketplace.
Am I wrong in thinking that the $60M+ for the Rainbow Stores will help the balance sheet for 3rd qtr?
I do not know the earnings ration for those stores, but I would think the processing center in Stevens Point being closed and not going that far north anymore will offset the higher expenses in Chicago. I would think we would probably see a fair improvement over 2nd qtr due to most of the start up costs being booked in the first half of the year. Am I wrong?
I trust your opinion and judgement as it seems you have much more experience in this realm, but I stand by my $4.87 in. I made $1.60 a share last winter and was lucky to get out when I did.
It's pretty ridiculous for you to assume none of us that use a "visual" concept do not do our DD. 20 years ago I walked into the WFM in Evanston, IL. I liked that store, so I did some research... obviously that turned out well.
Granted RNDY has some huge issues, and may not make it for a while- if ever, but I had already made a profit in RNDY last winter and my entry point here (although sad looking now) was $4.87 and I still feel that it was not a "bad" purchase.
No reason to call someone who believes in the LOCATIONS of these stores (especially compared to Meijer), the BRANDING of Mariano's, and the HYPE which is still around idiots... I understand that this was a risky play but I will NEVER invest only based on what I see and it is insulting and ridiculous to think many others would be doing the same. Just sayin'...
They are very adamant on hitting their 2014 milestones. I would tend to believe that will happen, but hey- it's the market so who knows?
Funny how last April/May you said it would be around $2.00 by the end of June. Not knocking you, but it's odd how now you are selling for $.50??
Lol. ONCS dead money??! You're crazy. Phase 2 data coming very soon!
I guess at the time of your post it was in the $.30'S though so I'll give you that.
You are crazy. Mariano's is the only thing saving RNDY at this point. They are rocking Chicago. WFM is what's losing the Chicago market.
Looking terrible obviously! LOL Still at an average price of $.50, I honestly think after the smoke clears and 3 qtr earnings come we'll be o.k. I'm not in any way saying there aren't big issues, but I think with all of the expenses in start-up and other(s), Mariano's will play a bigger role in the 3rd qtr.
I completely agree with everyone saying to focus on Chicago and get out of WI. Cut the slackers.
