Just think if we had enough gonads to throw away another 10 G's on this .12 turd 7 or 8 months ago we would have made $590,833.33 at today's high. If either CYTX or Athx makes a big run and YOU say pull the plug and I choke again I will fly to NY and bend over and let you kick me right in the East River.
This is sooo bizzare ! I was just talking to one of my trading buddies this aft about the ride Plug , Bldg , Qttw. fcel had given us years ago. I remember you telling me to bail when it was around $44. I thought no way this stock was $1500 at one time. I had dreams of having my own cell up on some mountain with the nearest neighbor 10 or 20 mi. away. Screw the power co's. Have me a herd of cattle and produce my own
methane from their manure . Use the methane to produce my H2 and that would be as close to Heaven I'd ever get. I'm still a dreamer my two biggest holdings are Cytx and Athx. I hope these cells work out a little better for me. Cuz I got miles to go until I sleep!
Don't follow the lemmings over the cliff. This #$%$ is sooo predictable. Pump em up pull the plug and wash the weak down. Just remember the SHARPIES will pick your BONES!
Google "Right To Try". Some eight states are considering allowing terminal patients who have exhausted all FDA approved methods of treating their afflictions to try non FDA approved methods of treatment. It's being very closely looked at in the Ariz. House.
If your a shorter of CYTX I can see why you spend soo much time on our board acting like the idiot that you are. Coming to this board to bash and trash another stem cell company shows there isn't a word in the English dialect to explain your foolishness. I you want to promote your KOOL-AID you should be going after big pharma and the hundreds of surgeons and plastic surgeons that are bashing our (including Kool) cure-stem cells. We are on the same team you freaking idiot. Once the average citizen learns about stem cells and their capabilities, there will be enough room for many companies to make billions. Once the doors are opened you'll be surprised at how big the room is. It will be then the cream will rise to the top, maybe then you will have come after CYTX so it doesn't buy Kool out for pennies.
Now we have to get after these greedy Surgeons and Doctors that are Fighting stem cells tooth and nail. I deal with quite a few wealthy ( and I do mean wealthy) Doctors and Surgeons and to a man (sorry person) everyone that I've ever brought up stem cells to has bad mouthed it. I"ve heard it call Voodoo medicine, big rip off, nonsense, hoax, just about every derogatory term. And the more I sparred with them the nastier it got. I almost always came away thinking these people acted like I was going to steal something from them. After about the first 5 or 6 I sparred with, I came to realize you can't argue with these people. It's like someone has scared the %^#@ out of them. I don't argue with them anymore. I did find that the family doctors are the most open to discussion, could it be that maybe they have the least to lose. Now before any Dr. out there start bashing me, all that I'm relaying is what I've seen over the years. Don't shoot the messenger!
You're totally correct with the idea that it will take tens of thousands of patients to make anyone of these stem cell co's profitable. I seriously doubt that we'll see any profitable before 2020. But, that wouldn't stop us from making some good money here before that. For me it's a heck of a lot better than investing in Marijuana, Fracking, and #$%$ even though they will probably make me richer faster.
I still believe that good news travels fast and bad news travels even faster. With Facebook ,Twitter, and You Tube. All it takes is a few people to come back with some great success with their treatments and go viral on all the social medias, TV and Internet news, and soon Congressman, Senators will pass the heat along. The FDA is not THAT bullet proof. Heck I haven't seen a President yet that hasn't secum to public pressure. I don't know how old you are but this Planet Earth is 10,000 times smaller than when I was a kid.
The only problem with that is when the FDA wants it done faster that means moving up from slug speed to turtle speed. Our best hope is that if Japan truly opens the doors for stem cell treatment. People with money will go there to have procedures done and when they come back to the states and their friends hear that they are actually cured and not kept on Phizer drugs for the rest of their lives the FDA will indeed feel the HEAT and have to respond.
The wonders of stock investing never cease to AMAZE!
J.D. I was thinking exactly the same thing 15 min ago only GERN is now up over 1.05, go figure. What's Gern got going for it Immelestat? That's about it, and that's an even bet. We'll be lucky if CYTX goes up a buck if they nail BARDA.
Glaschutte, are you holding some SVA Too! Or is that someome else. It's got to be you-- judging by the smart arrs comments.
Roth, If your talking about the collapse of the last few days, I got to agree with Suprin. I would also like to add that, the fact that the fed is soon to taper is also weighing on the markets. For the last 1 1/2 years investors have been pouring money into so called "safe investments" P&G's Merc etc. Those stocks have gone up as much as 30% in just the last year. It's just in the last 3-4 months that investors have turned to the more speculative stocks (ie. like stem cells). Perhaps figuring that the "Toyota's" are going to run out of gas and maybe we can make some quick bonus cash on these high spec. beaten up markets (ex. stem cells). I've got to believe that 2/3 of CYTX's investors hold it less than 1 year. As for these past 3-4 days all the stem cells are getting murdered. ATHX is getting slaughtered and I think Gil (CEO) is doing an excellent job. But, I will agree with you Roth on the fact that CYTX has gone from being a leader to a laggard in the stem cell market can be traced to poor management.
I'd also like to add that anybody can write an article for Seeking Alpha. You get like 1/10 of a penny for every hit. They mostly cover Biotech and some of their authors are very informative. Others are pumpers and some are dumpers. You definitely have to do your own DD.
Any positive stem cell news can be good for the sector. I think CYTX is working on an area that could bring more revenue than Gluts. Hamstring injuries are way more common than Gluts. I coached sports for years and I couldn't begin to count the number of hamstring injuries, especially in Blacks. If they go through their warmups (especially stretching) in a half assed fashion they are almost guaranteed a Hammy problem. And some take forever to heal. I realize the glut problems they are referring to are post hip surgery.
This happens with most biotechs! Doctors, mathematicians, and scientists are horrible at anything involving Public relations. Most scientists are very right brained. Creativity and the ability to sling the B.S. comes the left side of the brain. I still believe there is a bias against Chinese stocks.
