    Management Is Shell Shocked By Low Stock Price

    They are not using the ATM. The guys that follow the company are second rate. They are taking care of their business and if you would just stop posting garbage you will find out in due time whether your investment is working. The are not going to dilute. How much did they have at the end January? I suspect they are close to a major deal for international rights. Go away and come back with something substantive to say.

    what's going on?

    Being manipulated by a buyer. The bashers are hired to pollute the atmosphere. You get on a Yahoo message board expect garbage as it is a retail environment. I wonder why I post here and I have 21 people on this board ignored. If you are " forlong " don't ask a meaningless question. Buy the stock and go away. At this price it is an eternal options on a great technology.
    You are obviously a novice and should really do some basic research before you ask questions.

    Cadavers? Doubt it. This is not invasive surgery so they can see actual implants being done.My guess is the waiting list was long enough to vet people for the operation.

    From 1.5 mil shares to nothing in one day?

    They did sell stock..about 6 million shares after approval in January. Since then they have sold none I believe. They are anti-dilutive and may borrow funds in the next three months once business gets going. They are very conservative.

    They are not yellers and screamers. The next news we hear will be a deal for international distribution or a reimbursement announcement. Sikora trained a lot of the surgeons and I feel he and a few others are doing the procedure. To wit, we are presenting in San Francisco on March 19th and they make no great fanfare out of it. They are focusing on getting the commercialization rolling. I say it is the best time spent. We will know in due time, but maybe a hint of revenue in Q2 will be interesting.

    Do you think Scott Sikora is doing implants as we speak in Boston???

    It is always amazing to me that some group of morons diss our stock when obesity is such a curse and anything that can help should be accepted and this is after FDA approval. By the tenor of their writing you would think we are killing people. SA is trash and you can tell because web sites don't post their #$%$.

    If you look at the results of long term VBLOC users it does not take a genius to realize this will replace bariatric.

    Obesity Ups Women’s Cancer Risk 40

    U.S. News and World Report today.".Obesity and Depression? Symptoms of a Common Cause?"
    Every day new evidence on how awful obesity is. And I agree with Irwin...Just need to shows sales and it will happen.

  • innsbrooklad innsbrooklad Mar 17, 2015 9:21 AM Flag

    You do find amazing stuff. I think bariatric surgeons may be giving up the ghost as the 25 million people eligible for the procedure are not showing up. Why don't you email the company and ask if they are going? It will take a little more time but VBlOC will get a lot of traction soon. Wish we had more capital, but that is the bane of small companies.

    The lunatic fringe is out with their brilliant guesswork. Idiots. If there was a real seller of 1.5 MM shares the stock would be 75 cents. This is a buyer selling the stock down in order to buy real shares. I think the float is not there and he or they have to keep shorting to themselves to try get real owners to sell. This is such a fraud. They use any excuse like the 8K from the 13th to panic the owners. This is a great little company. They make the bonuses dependent on performance. Why isn't that applauded. Yet the morons come out and say it is a give away to management.

    You want to bestupid. Sell your shares to the folks who keep lowering the price, or do as I did, Buy more stock.
    Have you seen how much its costs to borrow ETRM???

    Sentiment: Strong Buy

    What is wrong with incentivizing management. That is a whole lot better than just dumping shares on the CEO to keep him. They have to perform to get paid. Would you have it another way?

  • innsbrooklad innsbrooklad Mar 16, 2015 2:15 PM Flag

    Sure...Right now I do not care where the price goes. I bought more today. I buy whenever they knock it down. They have what I call is a singular disruptive technology. All the other electroceutical players use stimulation, we use interruption. They data from the trial would have been greater but 8 in the non-control group did not hook up but they had to be counted and a lot of people lost weight early and felt better and stopped some of the protocols the trial required. We now have 36 month data and from what I see it is still great. It is a device and I did not expect to sees sales until May, but I think they are implanting now. I have not asked the company but they will advise when required. I still think they are asking too much for the device but they had to start somewhere. Private insurers will cover devices if they have a CPT III code and FDA approval. I think they are in discussions now with an international partner and maybe with a GSK type company on a collaboration. Mark Knudson is NOT sitting in his office calling doctors. Hancock is doing a great job and if you saw the map Lea presented you should be impressed. We are still below the radar and not being covered by a good firm. Anyone expecting immediate results is dreaming. The earliest I expect sales data is August when they report Q2. Any number of news items will be very helpful but it is a waste of time to sit here and complain about management.
    They got the device approved and now we have a sales group selling it. Matter of time.

  • innsbrooklad innsbrooklad Mar 16, 2015 1:38 PM Flag

    It is not as easy as we have the product lets sell it. It is not a pill. They are implanting now but will not say that until they have sales to show. They are terrible at marketing their stock but a lot better at marketing their product. Do you know how long it took to approval. June to January. It is now mid-March. What did you expect. Sales January 15th????? They told us of the retraining. They had one webinair. They filled the first surgeon class. What are they doing wrong??? Nothing except hype their stock? Give it a rest. They have 7 sales centers now, not the 4 we thought. They have said they will have 25 centers by the end of the year. That moron analysts that said the centers will do one procedure a month is daft.
    They have had approval for two months. It is a new game now that we have a device to sell. Let them sell it. we have a singular technology that to me is worth billions. Let it prove itself out. By September we should have a lot of questions answered.

    What is your theory? ATM? Beat down by accumulators? Elvis? Short selling? Frustrated longs bailing? This stock will be a ping pong ball until they do a deal or the June 30 data.

    Leave management alone. They have their net worth tied up in this endeavor and have a good idea what they are doing. If you have a problem call Knudson and voice your opinion. I for one do not need it.

    You idiot..a CEO never takes a salary reduction. Of course it is small. He could cut his whole salary. It does not pass the smell test.How many years have we had all these promises and what have we. We are losing our shirts on the methanol deals as we pay too much for the feed stock. Who negotiated that deal. And all these Chinese associations? One deal where they bought stock and we ate through it. And Pakistan????The worst electric grid in the world and GE can't get a deal done with us?? I cut my position in half at $1.05. Should have sold it all.

    And your hypothesis does not include the crash in oil and natural gas. At $3.00 natural gas is the equivalent of $30.00 oil. I am thinking SYMX is dead money and they are running out iof it.
