    Whooops. There you go. You had to do it. You popped off at the mouth and just triggered a HARD sell (lol, yes YOU paspalum are the quintessential SELL indicator!). You shoulda kept that fat yapper of yours shut but no, not you. That's just not your style and now EXAS going to tank because you! Sheeeeze!!!! you just couldnt shut your blabber mouth!!!!. Congratulations moron.

    There is a significant difference between "cause and effect" and a "reverse indicator". The latter does not cause the selloff..... it merely foretells of it.

  • ......ummmmm. Nobody?
    Right, no one. If you did. You likely bought from me!
    Youre welcome!!!

  • Please tell me what you're going to do when you find that after an initial launch, the Cologuard stool collection kits just aren't flying off the shelves? If past experience is any kind of predictor of future events, you'll all still be here, whining like a bunch of 13 year girls....

  • that the short institutions are NOT the same as the long institutions.

    How many times do we have to tell you about voting rights? Let me make it simpler for the stupid;

    We'll pretend that a particular company only has 100 shares outstanding and that there is reason to believe that this company may be a good buyout candidate, but only IF a new product they have under development proves to be successful.

    Little Johnny has enough money to just buy the company outright, but he does not want to risk losing his fortune if the new product is a flop. On the other hand, if the new product is a winner, it will be a HUGE winner -and he wants to prevent someone else from buying this company out from under him. How can Little Johnny protect himself boys and girls? He sets up a "hedge" in order to control a majority of the voting rights while simultaneously tying up enough shares to prevent anyone else from taking control and voting merger approval without his consent. Little Johnny knows that IF things go right there will be plenty of time to make a handsome return even AFTER a buyout occurs at whatever price he votes his 51 percent to approve on. Lets say little Johnny has 51 percent of the companies stock spread over multiple accounts and has shorted an equal amount in other accounts also owned by him. Each company gives the illusion of having a position one way or another when in reality, they are all under the same roof and neutral at the moment.

    If the news is good, little Johnny covers his short position and votes his 51 Percent in favor of a deal to sell the OTHER 49% of the company to himself at bargain basement prices. If the price is too high? Little Johnny tells people it's not enough and votes it down. The stock price eventually drifts down as the public shareholders become dismayed and disillusioned. Once the price gets low enough, little Johnny takes the company private. Bwaa baa baa baaaaaaah ! SUCKERS!!!!!

    3. Living, you just don't get it, never have. Do you not realize that it is perfectly legal for a investment institution (we're talking the majors) to act as the proxy for a silent, unknown party in exchange for a fee. This is the mechanism by which the very concept of "restricted shares" is all but meaningless. The use of 3rd party proxies for the purpose of anonymity has been going on for decades. Just because YOU don't know about it doesnt prevent it from being FACT.

    4. The illustration of one company was put out there for people like you to "here" a simple example that you could understand. The single entity is more likely a consortium of insiders coupled with a big pharma that already has an arrangement for "first dibbs" should everything work out. One thing I forgot to mention is that massive marketing and build out are going to consume more capital that the company's current coffers hold. Don't you think it would make sense for the acquiring "entity" to dilute the float with additional equity in the form of a PIPE (largely purchased by one of their proxies) after they pretend to "go it alone"? This would enable the acquirer to lower the final purchase price dramatically.

    Sorry for trying to make is simple - I guess I gave you too much credit.

    Not true livingsv. It is NOT illegal as long as the shares are held in separate corporate accounts. Remember, a US corporation is considered to have the same weight as an actual person under contract law. With separate boards and management of record, the IRS and the SEC have little way of proving collusion and the fact that it has taken place for years proves my point. BlakkRokk didn't get as big as they are by simply making "smart" investment choices. They are THE masters of GAME THEORY.

    Oh, I see. Because person gets burned in one stock, by a consortium of liars and cheats both from within and outside that company, then he rightfully hasn't a clue about anything at all? Oh, OK, fine by me "qauffer". Dont listen, go ahead and continue to encourage other people to take the risk you DIDNT take to get where you are in this stock. The risk in EXAS has actually never been higher as a result of an unrealistic market cap that places the present value well beyond 1 Billion dollars. This is why I am betting WITH the GAME THEORISTS who are currently short 17 million shares of stock!! I don't appreciate the unethical behavior seen here where individuals like you are encouraging next generation "bagholders" to throw their money away on a stock that has already peaked - where you yourself admittedly have already amassed a sizable profit. Shame on you.

    Living, your definition could not be wrong. Here is a verbatim definition of a PIPE deal as described by Investopedia:
    "Since a private placement (PIPE) is offered to a few, select individuals, the placement does not have to be registered with the Securities and Exchange Commission. In many cases, detailed financial information is not disclosed and a the need for a prospectus is waived. Finally, since the placements are private rather than public, the average investor is only made aware of the placement after it has occurred."

    (And yes, the previous 2 secondaries (at least) have been PIPES by definition. You and I found out about them AFTER the deals had been made. My guess is that our BOD and select participants at the MAYO were the recipients of those sweetheart deals.

    Now THAT is a paranoid delusion if I've ever heard one. I am simply trying to get the word out so the gullible and naive new investors aren't hoodwinked by the uncontested claims made on this messageboard.

    lolol - The only reason YOU are laughing is because you STILL DONT GET IT!!!!
    - PIPE is an acronym for PRIVATE INVESTMENT IN (a) PUBLIC ENTITY - FYI - we are referring to the SAME THING and the reason these vehicles enjoy such widespread use is that they allow a public corporation to sidestep regulation and thereby HIDE the details of their equity agreements (hence the "greased palms" expression alluded to earlier). PIPES while sometimes necessary usually involve some form of behind the scenes deals for special treatment to the new (chosen ones) investors AT THE EXPENSE OF THE PREVIOUS SHAREHOLDERS - even if the new shareholders were previous shareholders themselves. IOW, they are getting to "average down" in advance, without the public shareholders knowledge or consent and because they have advance knowledge, they are able to short prior to the announcement and cover after the fall, with the newly created "PIPE" shares they were awarded - there by garnering instant, guaranteed profits for themselves. In some sick instances, they may short even more of the stock than they're going to recieve in the PIPE, prior to the announcement of it, because they are able to gauge that will be a certain amount of panic sell off to take advantage of. This is especially true during parabolic highs such as the one we were in last week as we saw prices (nearly) touch 15.00 per share.
