Mayo????? But I think you are unrealistic...We could see 100 by 12/31/15 as this is surgeon driven right now. That doc at VCU in Richmond may have 5 other bariatric surgeons trained and then the fun begins as most surgeons work at multiple hospitals. May 15 earnings call will be enlightening. The announcement of the 15 centers and 19 surgeons was completely out of character for this company.They started it and it will continue as they are getting more and more expposure.
They are and will be but it takes time..It also takes time to read your inane posts. Please cease and desist until we have some real information to debate. There are over 20,000 hospitals and medical and surgical centers in the U.S. Why don't all of them do VBLOC. Because it is early in the game.
Those people are sad cases and VBLOC will not help them. Their problem is deeper and they need psychiatric help all the time. I only care about the 25 Million with a BMI of 30-40...
I would guess hey are offering the incentives to everyone. It ios better than discounting the product and in trruth we will have more shareholders with added incentives...
Or Japan...they start in other European nations..how about a deal on the cessation aid? They do China and we open at $6.00. REad the financing they did to raise the money for the China investment.
Look at the weekly charts,,the 200 week is 1.33...long term that is the focus..the gap under the market is for traders so I ignore it. The news flow in the next 60 days will be pretty interesting.
Quite possible, but the "zero nicotine " label is worth billions.
We own what I refer to as a disruptive technology. Red Sun is fine but not a game changer. The zero nicotine smokes will ge a game changer as people who like tobacco will not NEED it. Teenagers who want to try tobacco will try the zero smokes to see how they like it. I hope they hate it, but you re not going to change that. Wait until we breach China.
No it may be because it has never been a great indicator. RIG has 70% institutional ownership. I can give you lots of examples. In biotechs lots of groupies follow Fido and T Rowe...Not a big deal. The institutions are not right all the time.
Others in the cessation market focus on pills like Chantix which is having a problem with suicides. Do some work and look at XXII's patent estate. We own it for all intents and purposes. What no one talks about here is the mark up in the smoking market. Do you know what it costs MO to make one pack of Marlboros???
I drink non-alchoholic beer..Tastes the same..As a reformed drinker I find it gives me the flavor but not the addiction...The cigarettes these guys make are going to find a huge market.
Your are an idiot. I can't wait for nicotine free chewing tobacco....I smoke cuban cigars. I do not inhale them. I enjoy the smell and taste of tobacco.
By the way, what does nicotine taste like???? Maybe we should start a new drink made from nicotine...Get a life
Noise and low dollar priced stocks are all victims. I do not know how they make money.
.....and there is a great story about knee replacements and obesity. There was a recommendation by an surgeon for a patient to get bariatric before a knee replacement but the patient refused. Obesity is the orthopaedic surgeons best friend as the feet, knees and hips were not made for the over weight person. This is going to be an inducement for the insurers to cover VBLOC. The medical savings down the line are huge. We hear Knudson et al talk about the comorbidities associated with obesity. The damage to the body's frame is just as bad and maybe worse.
