    ARIA has been and will always be a POS and a pipe dream ever since they killed Jesse. Mulroy has an ego so big he would never agree to be bought out. He said to a group of us once he wanted to be the next Genentech.
    The great play on MACK is now a post October straddle. That is where all thge activity will be.

    Diet and exercise

    On holiday in London and I must say walking down the Street looks like the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade. I have never seen so many obese people in my life. The only skinny ones are the beggars.

    There is also nascent legislation moving through Congress to try to address the obesity problem in the U.S. Also today if you Google obesity there is an article that says there is weight gain after sleeve surgery. I think we are moving forward. It is just a lot slower than I suspected.

    Sorry about the misspells but I am away from home with serious computer problems but I just got sick of hios garbage. Put him on ignore and don't argue with him. His facts are erroneous and he must be an ex-employee with an axe to grind. Nothing more.

  • I had a knee replacement in 2011..It was a new device from Conformis. My company self insured. I spent 2 1/2 days in a major medical center in Raleigh. The doctor billed $4,600 and the company paid $1600. The medical center billed $110,000 and were reimbursed $22,000. This garbage about $40-50,000 VBLOC procedures is inflamatory. The same knee I had replaced was scoped in 2006. Doctor bill was $5600 and he got $900. The surgical center billed $12,400 and got %3600, including anesthesia. The new group ETRM has working for them now is helping patients find low fees that have been negotiated. This is why we are not in New York City and the big training hospitals as they charge too much. We are starting in the right size cities.

    Following my surgery a good pal who had his own business and no insurance took my bills and spoke to my doctor and hospital and got the procedure done for the same price. Where anyone comes away saying VBLOC is not affordable like this moron Ooze is listening to fabricated facts. VBLOC will be done now for less than $20,000.

    This Ooze character spends his life ashing penny stock for what? No matter what anyone says he posts incorrect facts and we would all do well to complain to Yahoo about the fellow. He will not go away but you do better ignoring him.

    Pharma..and what were those complication events? For VBLOC is was nothing compared to the others which are major surgeries. And the procedure will not cost $40-50,000. Outpatient service and doctor may get to $5.000. A lot of the early effort will be the company speaking to the docs and hospitals and establishing a price level. I for one am sick of OOZE and I do not even read his #$%$. You should not either. He is here beating up a 25 cent stock? Why give him the satisfaction you are paying attention to him?

    Why would anyone in his right mind exercise options at that price with the stock here? That is nuts. Registration of that size has to do with employees or something internal relating to the Board. I read the release and it said nothing other than the registration. If they forced exercise they had to give the shop away again to some large holders. But it is good to see the Board acting on our behalf by getting rid of Knudson. Good clinic guy but that is it. We need an update on centers and docs and insurance. Next 60 days we have to find a new CEO and the only way you get one is an option deal...But Knudson is no loss and Lea should be shown the door next. And toss Jody while you are at it. That is a useless person.

    No one exercised warrants...Why would anyone do that at those prices...Seems they just registered them and I think they may be Knudson's. Why would they register them if they were not going to ist them...??? But no one exercised those warrants.

    Knudson Steps aside

    You folks are missing the point....Look who is handling the search for a new CEO...Lea is gone..He is a basic idiot who is Knudson's pal....The Board sees the operations and they know they have a great device and science. They saw the abortion of a financing and said enough is enough. They will get a real CEO in the door and give him the opportunity with a huge up front options deal and he will have sales and reimbursement experience. Hancock is good but not a CEO so forget that. If the Board did not see this company as a winner they would have found a buyer. They see the demand and will know the right guy to run the thing. But it is a Cyberonics and not a Medtronics guy handling the transition.
    Best news in months. Sadly Knudson did not know what he had and the stuttering fool trusted the wrong CFO.

    Maybe the best spec out there if it gets under $8.00 but they are taking no prisoners.

    Has nothing to do with the pipeline....They just can't get IMF funding but thy do not need it. They have coolie labor. By they way smart guy, I usually do not read Yahoo stories generated by the idiots at CNBC, but Jim Chanos gave a good report on China today. See if you cal call it up.

    MACK is stupid cheap

    My advice to you is not to give any. IBB held but rhe SPX is in deep trouble. If we get a kind of Black Monday event after Europe and Asia got killed today you will be buying MACK a lot cheaper. Yiur fundamental premise is good, but if you own MACK on margin it matters little. This is the kind of market that separates the men from the boys and the boys from their money. Value in this market is a four letter word.

    Also, correct me if I am wrong, but it is a lot easier to convert coal plants to oil burning plants and oil is still falling????Yeah he is an idiot who will not listen to reason.I just like yanking his chain. You notice the other guys like NHCorwin are not blasting me. Just I think the technology is not new and it is hugely expensive.You got a coar burner adjust it for oil or LNG.
    Why are they building all those LNG posrt in Australian and the U.S.? Import it to whom? China and Japan. Remember?? No Fukashima...

  • innsbrooklad innsbrooklad Aug 21, 2015 10:50 AM Flag

    Russian deal is not on hold...where did you get that news...PS China has a lot of gas. Everywhere. They are not going to spend on big syngas facilities. SYMX has been there 10 years and what do they have to show for it. 2 Methane operations that lose money.

    The big picture? Forget about coal you schitte head. Tell the Chinese to buy Peabody. They have cleaner coal and hey can buy it cheap.

  • innsbrooklad innsbrooklad Aug 21, 2015 2:30 AM Flag

    You sound like you are in church..get a life...China is going to be the biggest importer of LNG and they are setting up for it. They are going to import a ton of Russian gas.....China's economy is built of balsa wood.
    How does Paulsen's buy look now big guy????

    Let me give you a little over view...I have never spoken to Henry, but from the moves I see at the FDA the are having a hard time with Chantix...The side effect profile is very bad. They are not advertising it anymore if you pay attention. Why the FDA does not allow us to go ahead with o nicotine cigarettes is nothing but Brown Williamson and PM leaning on the agency. Without cancer the FDA is out of bvusiness. We need a strong partner and when I talk to Henry I am going to try to help him. The politics of cigarettes is almost as bad as abortion. The taxes collected by the Feds is staggering but no one talks about it. Our little company could cut that in half. People will smoke, but a lot less. China and Japan are the big play and we will get a huge deal before year end as the Chinese from what I read are trying to get their people off the weed...I can't speak on canabis but the cancer patients can and will demand a more concentrated smoke and we can do it. The price here is a joke.

    CEO is a bright guy and knows what he has. He has a biotech power in tobacco and canabis. The cancer folks should be all over us soon.

  • innsbrooklad by innsbrooklad Aug 20, 2015 10:47 AM Flag

    My opinion is they will have a partner for the anti-Chantix drug that is creating a new class of suicide. They have the funds for a year assuming no sales. I expect a major Chinese deal by December. I think the ex-CEO will continue to sell in dribs and drabs but he is a non-factor. A biotech company with their patents and products is worth north of $10. That said the market is awful and there is a bomb shelter mentality when it come to small caps. I add small every day..
