You may be BSSSing but Faiholme is putting their money behind this to the tune of $2.4 BILLION.
You could make a tone or loose your shirt. Be extremely careful while at the same time extremely brave. Uncharted territory for such a liquid and yet extremely volatile with recent daily volumes in 100s of million. If you played it well it could be a lifetime opportunity and if you don't it would be disastrous.
Doctor has a point. Why would any hospital be willing to spend millions on robotics if the reimbursements were the same? I know for a fact that hospitals and even clinics and doctors offices get huge tax breaks ($100,000 last year for medical offices but millions for hospitals) if they purchase medical equipment. The amount was substantially increased to stimulate the economy following the latest recession.
Also, the reimbursements are at times different if certain equipments are used including the robotics. This specially applies to PPOs but also to Medicare. Historically Medicare has encouraged technical advances by implementing such incentives.
I am long IRSG but lets don't close our eyes to facts including problems with their equipment (which even the company itself is admitted to) as well as patient injuries settled before any lawsuits are filed which I have also heard about.
Long or not we may face a little correction this coming week but I continue to believe in this company long term.
Dying to see a GREEN day.
The value of my stocks is gone from just under $1.5 million to less than $50k in a very short time. I am so stressed; My whole life will be totally turned upside down if a good portion of these losses are not reversed. I am holding on to my shares carrying my paper losses hoping something will happen but I am starting to realize this is becoming the worse financial nightmare of my life.
I don't know why I wrote this post and don't need any replies. I am simply airing my frustration.
This exactly what I was thinking but had not put them into words. I also think that potential value of AFFY to Takeda runs into billions and no way they will let it go.
Don't be fooled. The news was amazingly good. Seems Affymax got all they wanted. No responsibilities or associated costs but both milestone money and royalties. What else did you longs want?
Sentiment: Strong Buy
You first recalled the Omontys which caused your shareholders to lose 85% of their investment in your company over night. Then somebody here asked you to please give us some kind of PR after you had kept quite for the longest time after which you released a PR talking about BK which resulted in another 65% hit to your shareholders' already destroyed investment.
Now I am, on behalf of thousands of your ruined shareholders, ask that you give us a more realistic and positive PR.
Some of you shareholders have life has been practically turned upside down . They have lost millions and are dazed at this whole thing. Some are still holding on by their finger nails to what ever shares they've got left in the hope of saving their future and the future of their families.
ENOUGH IS ENOUGH. Many have already lost everything and have walked away out of desperation.
We don't know why you have been going out of you way in stressing the bad news and destroying the share prices. We don't even care if you have other ulterior motives.
But please show us some humanity.
I can't find the 13Fs "filed" showing they sold all their shares. Can you provide the link.
It does not make sense. Is the article saying that all those institutions listed sold all their AFFY shares and now own zero shares/ Please somebody clarify. Thanks.
No doubt your $2 and $3 are coming soon but I am waiting for the PR that will send this flying into double digits. Any idea when that would be? My hunch is within 1-3 weeks time we should hear something; what do you think?
I agree this all seems a thought out scheme. The criminals are all at work stealing hard earned folks money. For me also it does not even come close to making any sense to ruin a whole company and a very valuable drug over this. This management has ulterior motives.
see Seeking Alpha report just released. Don't sell your shares on the cheap.
I agree 100%. The AH pps drop is been a knee jerk reaction from seeing the word BK. But the reality is that I agree that was just a term used to pressure their Japanese partner to put up more funds for the investigation.
But like you I agree that the jest of today's PR was to say that the investigation so far have convinced them that it should continue and that the outcome will be worth such continuation. To me that is a big positive news. Three weeks of investigation and their only worry right now is funding for the investigation. There isn't any hint that such investigation may be a waste. To the contrary they seem to say they like it to continue "until FDA approval".
It seems to me the PR clearly shows they confidant about the future of the drug and their only concern and reason behind today's release is having the funding to bring it back
Sorry I did not mean 4..Just a typo; I don't how it got there. I meant 17...I think I am going to sell early tomorrow morning if it isn't knocked down big remembering it was down nearly 7% in Japan today but only 2.6% here in US...
