Shale plays?...LOL! That entire industry is just about to hit the fan. Wait tell we see another water well that explodes into flames, only this time next to some elementary school or something equally as publicly sensitive. If the shale people can convince the tree huggers and environmentalists that no harm can come by cracking the top layer of the earth's crust, well then, good luck to them on that....LOL!
1. Rule 1...You should believe nothing you read on a message board.
2. Rule 2...Repeat rule number 1.
Seriously...Message Boards are entertaining and every once and a while you can get a gem or some
information from a news source that can really help you. But by and large I think the best thing you can do is read every SEC filing made by the company (the 10k or 10q reports are probably best), and you can get those on the Yahoo site as well under SEC filings. Follow market purchases and sales of stock by insiders and institutions. Pay close attention to the people running the company and where they came from, and how much at stake in the company they have. Look at how the company is financed...how much cash and how much debt they have. Learn how to read a basic chart pattern to look for buy and sell points on the stock.
Never get greedy. And remember, if you decide to sell at a loss, your first loss is your best loss.
"Don't get so personal"...." Is that a joke or something? I've been attacked and harassed on this board and every other one I post on by some Siga nut job here (could be you as far as I know), and you say "don't get so personal"? Calling people "names I don't even know"...when the name calling started with the ultra pro Siga crazy posters here, and has been going on for years? Read your own posts. Do you think you've been civil here? Give me a break.
This Board has attacked, with vengence, anyone who asks a question or makes a comment about Siga management, or otherwise criticizes the company. These posters hide in the shadows with multiple ID's, concealing their relationship with the company, either as shareholders, shorts, no positions, or otherwise, while at the same time pouncing all over those of us who plainly state their positions, and their concerns, and your retort is "don't be so personal".
My position is clear. I owned the stock bigtime. I lost money on it bigtime. Management was selling millions of dollars worth of stock, unbeknownst to me, at the same time I was buying. I have since traded the stock successfully by buying it under $3, and selling it in the high 3's... I venture to say I have bought and owned more Siga stock on the open market than anyone in Management has. I have never been short the stock..
never. End of my story. So what's your story here if I can be so "personal"?
And you should quit posting under 6 different aliases.... At least be a man (or woman, or cross dresser whatever you are) and list your different ID's... You and the other freaks here need to come out of the closet.
Homebuilder....Your question is difficult to answer because NO information has been forthcoming from the company re status of existing business and/or other opportunities that they might be exploring outside of BARDA; the FDA status re trials and ultimately approval of ST-246 with the FDA; development or acquisition of future products etc.once the BARDA contract runs it's course; contingency plans re the company if the verdict goes against the company once again; longer term business plans....etc. etc. "pipeline" status, etc. and plans for development of such longer term;
Absent any information forthcoming from the company it's pretty tough to say what the investment promise can be. I mean, since they're not recognizing revenues from BARDA at the present time, it's very hard to even dicipher the financials. GL...
Looking for my $2.92 entry level again for another flip at $3.61....15k shares, and did that just a few months ago, and posted it here when I bought, and when I sold. The crazy gutless wonders who bash any dissent here don't have the guts to do that, nor the cash, nor the intellect frankly. Big talk, no action. They're simply #$%$ because Droad and I are the only ones who have actually made any money on this stock in 2013-2014. That is except for Rose, and the other Officers and/or BOD's who sold free stock options. Losers....all of them....
Got to admit...This is one of the greatest head fakes of all time... KL downgrades this morning and the stock goes up? Now can anyone here give a reason for this other than short covering? Got to admit for now I was dead wrong on the price action......
3.80 PM.... Wrote off inventory and PCLe business. Nice. A new company with new products writing off inventory already. This means what they produced in the last year or so is already worth nothing. Cash
burn was "only" 30 million? LOL... Revenues were only 28 million...Great
Analysts will destroy this stock tomorrow. Gross margins in the low 50% range? Are you kidding me?
Losing 50% more each quarter than they have in revenues. No new large clients. No new large orders. Overhead off the charts. Cash burn almost as much as the market value of the company over four quarters.
No new products introduced to meet the competition's especially in the hybrid space. Management basically in denial and believe they can turn this ship around just buy talking it up. A strange situation apparently with Toshiba orders and a very large reserve now for "returns".
This is not an issue with "the cloud"...It's an issue with having the right products at the right time. Have them talk to Lucent and ask about having the best products at the wrong time...BK....GL tomorrow but I have little hope other than this will be selling in the mid to high 3's at the end of the trading day...
Could care less little man. Show your big stocking picking worth on this Board by posting trades when you do them and quit being such a little wimp hiding in the shadows. Talk is still the cheapest commodity known to mankind.
I've been asking the same hybrid storage question now for over six months.... They're getting killed by the competition, and that is the reason. The kids running the technology strategy have grown up (if that is accurate) in the "bigger is better generation" rather than the WC Fields generation of "give the folks what they want".....
I guess most of the hot shots at VMEM weren't even born in the 80's through the early 90's when some of the greatest technology companies in the US went broke because they felt the world needed all this bandwith,
and immediately too, even though less than 1 and 100 families owned a PC at the time, and even global corporations were just getting into computing. Companies like Lucent, Alcatel, Corning, Ciena, and Global Crossings, went broke, or almost broke, building out capacity that people didn't need at the time.
So did the folks at VMEM learn this lesson? Obviously not. They're offering customers an elephant of data storage and speed, when all they are asking for is a Cheetah. Dumb...dumb....and dumber.
Another company destined to go down the drain and take their shareholders with them simply
because the techie guys in charge are "stoked" with what THEY have built, even though no one else
wants it at this time.
OK "hoss" big man with the big mouth.... The rules here are you post your buys and sells and the number of shares in each WHEN you do them for all to see. Not this 20/20 made up hindsight BS. Everyone here knows that is what I do here and have since the first day I posted here, and on all other site.. Post real time when I do the trades. Have literally had ONE loser (ONTX) in well over a half dozen posted trades from start to exit.
Lot of people here have made a lot of money following those trades, but I don't encourage that in any respect.
I simply don't like the big mouth BS with nothing to back it up.
You've been short SODA since the mid 50's. Great. Point us out to your post where you went short and when.
You own any Siga? You short Siga? Why you here man?
What happened to the Government was shut down excuse this quarter? An awful quarter, no doubt about it and I'm long unfortunately darn large. Competition is killing this company.
Drod....The nut job here is getting kinda lazy recently. Now he follows me around to every board I post on and gives my posts one thumb down. But that happens normally within minutes of when I post so he much have some automated way of tracking all of it. He's getting too lazy to change his ID's. Nut job used to give me up to six thumb down, so there's no telling how many ID's he has. Truly a crazy person who should be in a locked cell somewhere. I'm having Yahoo track the stalker down cause it's against their policy and "harassment" so well let you know when they're done...
No...Your post is factual, and right on. Mr. "research scientist," who is in academia, simply did a cursory job of researching . I gave him a D-, but the final is coming up, so he can redeem himself if he puts in the hours....
To $14.80 in a nano second and just a few cents off the all time high, then someone hits it hard all the way back down to $13.97... We got some work to do to clear out the old all time highs for good I guess...lol!
Lead in (early) data from the Phase 3 Ignite 2 study in cUTI expected mid 2014. Pivotal portion of the study
expected mid 2015. Ignite 1 global study Phase 3 trial for cIAI dosed first patient during the last quarter.
Top line data expected in the first quarter of 2015.
These are gram negative studies folk. If we get good Phase 3 results here this would be extremely positive
for TTPH IMHO....
