it's only till 2014. the bottom line is dialysis supply is viewed differently than before. Amgen cannot be compared with RMTI right now. RMTI is just beginning. AMGN is a behemoth. If the trend continues, when RMTI gets approved (and comes to the market) next year, the outlook will be even better.
Even now, RMTI competes with FMS for supply in dialysate. At least, that will be spared of CMS cut.
news came Friday afterhours. DVA and FMS up big AH. RMTI will most likely cross 16 on Monday, since the CMS policy will help RMTI too.
why don't you write up a detailed report about Socket in Seeking Alpha. You state facts, and in a very detailed manner. Considering some stocks doubling, even quadrupling when an article on SA comes out, I think Socket also deserves this kind of publicity; and you are the right person to publicize it.
i have many shares of sckt, bought at average of 1.35; i could be deluded, but i don't see any panic here. my goal is to gauge the company at end of 2014, and decide what to do then.
invest like this is a new way to do business, my friend. pos with scanners and ipads. mid 2014 is too short a time frame for this to get its gears. think more like 2015.
so bottom line, what you are saying is use common sense, wait until square and the likes will start exploding growth, and socket will tag along. so of course, it is going to take a while. i am surprised that a person like you who has micro-tracked this company is throwing in the towel, considering it is an ultra micro-cap stock, that will run hard if just one of the assumptions will be met.
this is what happens when you invest, not trade, in a low cap stock striving for the next big opp in commerce.
It takes time. It is lumpy. It is at the whim of the customers. they have already said that the Japan situation has been rectified. they have a rational excuse of new iOS disturbing their paradigm. they are reasonably confident about their future. buy with both hands and hold it till end of 2014.

Laser Vision Inspection
Laser-based vision inspection for quality assurance now includes Perceptron-supplied tools to monitor critical points on every Corvette body that comes down the line.
By checking every car and major assembly in the plant, process variation can be seen – and addressed – immediately. Tighter tolerances on parts and new, improved tooling for the Corvette’s various assembly procedures are helping the plant achieve approximately 25 percent or greater improvement in meeting tolerance targets.
Perceptron is essentially a three-dimensional measurement system that uses fixed and robotic-mounted Helix laser sensors, or cameras, to monitor critical build features. It is a three-part “in process” quality inspection for frame rail assemblies, uniframe bodies and composite bodies with a fully dressed cockpit.
what a stupid post. they are locking up the database; statistical analysis, ie, mining has not even begun yet.
3D printing is all the rage, and deservedly so. But the industry is at its infancy. At a certain time, companies like DDD and SSYS cannot 'model' all the complex dimensions before printing. That is when 3D metrology will be important for these companies. As dimensions get finer by millimeters or less, 3D printing companies are bound to strike some kind of deal with 3D metrology companies. At least, that makes common sense to me.

Read the last quarter cc transcript. They have essentially guaranteed that q2 this year will be better than q2 last year. go to their website. they had a tribute to arizona hotshot firefighters; guess who supplied them with the lmr's. they have a great letter of appreciation from colorado wildlife services. and lastly, the last line in the latest '50 year anniversary' pr tells you how much momentum RELM is having.
