  • I've been a long term bull on SSH and continue the same stance. I started buying SSH back in Aug of 2012 and haven't sold a share. I've always added shares on the dips. My final message is as follows.
    1. Do your own research.
    2. C-pulse works. That never been in question.
    3. The only issue which management has dealt with was increasing enrollments. If you listened to the last CC you know that problem has been fixed
    4. The current management team is outstanding and under very good leadership in Dave Rosa
    5. I'd pretty much also ignore Ex (I personally believe they're both the same poster)
    6. I don't know where the stock price will be tomorrow or next month. However, based on where HTWR and THOR were valued at FDA approval,(in excess of a billion market cap). I'd expect the share price in SSH to be at least 10 times higher by FDA approval. I think more likely 15 times higher since CHF class 3 market is so much bigger than class 4.
    7. Be patient and don't expect SSH to run to 15-20 tomorrow. It's not going to happen. However, I'm hoping the FDA does allow SSH to do an interim analysis of the data next year. That could stop the trial due to outstanding efficacy. That could put SSH next year easily at $25+
    Good Luck to all Longs.

    Totally agree. This is an amazing CC. anyone who sells here just doesn't get it. I have to say Rosa put together a brilliant CC. This management team is NOW firing on all cylinders. My spec portfolio is a bit overweight in SSH. However, I will be adding shares this morning.

  • Fifteen sites activated in the C-Pulse COUNTER HF U.S. investigational pivotal study, up from thirteen at the end of the first quarter 2014, and two additional activated sites are awaiting clinical contract amendments.
    Eighteen additional U.S. sites committed to participate bringing number total to thirty-five.
    Seven additional patients enrolled in U.S. with three new centers enlisting their first patient.
    Potential patients now identified at every participating U.S. site.
    Two centers in the UK for OPTIONS HF EU post-market study are now able to enroll with one having performed a successful implant.
    Two additional patients in Europe were implanted with C-Pulse bringing total implants in OPTIONS HF to twelve.
    Exit site infection rate to-date for OPTIONS HF study is 8.3%, per investigator-reported results, significantly below our feasibility study rate of 40%.
    Completed 90 day animal trial for next generation fully-implantable C-Pulse system.
    Thoughts - you have to really read in between the lines here. First, these results are for the end of the 2nd quarter. I've always said that I don't expect to see much because all the major initiates stated at the end of the 2nd quarter Here's what I think
    1. We know via presentations that the number of approved sites were 17 over six weeks ago. The 2nd quarter talks about 15 sties set up so that's a stale number. I would guess that sites that can enroll are over 20 at this point. My guess is 23-25. There are 35 total sites that have committed. I would expect most to be set up by the end of this quarter.
    2. Rosa states patients visits are double so this shows the efforts are working. Remember this happened in only a few short weeks at the end of the 2nd quarter. My guess is patient interviews have ramped up even greater
    3. Rosa says potential patients have now been identified at every site. Let's says there's over 20 sties able to implant. I believe this is the Qtr we'll see close to 20 implants. We have turned the corner IMO

    Personally that would not make me a happy camper. I'm looking to eventually get $25+ per share. Also, remember SSH has a poison pill to prevent a low ball takeover

    LMAO Ex. I need this to temper the paper losses I'm taking on SSH. I really thinks it's not if but when the enrollments take off. Rosa is a strong leader.

    I have to agree with Ex on this one. While I'm disappointed as most others that there hasn't been more implants, I believe the awareness and initiatives will greatly increase the implants. If we don't see it on the CC, it certainly will be on the next CC. Yes I'm hoping we can get some color on progress that's beyond the 2nd quarter, however I believe Rosa is making decisions on the long term success of C-pulse

  • You've pounded the table to buy THOR. Take a look this morning. It's under 24, down about 30% PM.
