    Beach: I would be happy to see this dog get above 72 cents so I could unload my 10K shares.
    It has been a year since the thing got above $1.40. It did hit 1.27 in June but that was because of a lot of hype.

    With this market, we will be lucky if it does not fall to $0.50.

    Great news? Believe it to be a bit of a sales job.
    Just like Yahoo says analyst sets one year price @ $3.00.
    Go to their analyst projections and there s none available.

    Your talking to your self. Only the mentally disturbed have conversations with themselves!
    This dog has been pegged at $3 for a long time, nothing new here.

    stinky results

    No I have not listened to the call. Had medical appointments to attend.
    Thanks for your commentary. Mostly we seem to get a bunch of idiots here smarting off.
    I really did expect payment for waste oil to offset factors caused by low oil prices in this third quarter.
    As I said; thought they could make the analyst's -.06. The reported -.11 simply suggests to me that they have not moved fast enough in adjusting. I will hold my shares but feel my faith has been misplaced. I am now the lucky 87 dog. Hope I am around long enough to see a recovery. They took a nice chunk of my mad money with which I speculate.

    3Q revenue down 48.9% . G.P. up 64% y/y with per barrel margin up 59% y/y?
    Collection volume was also up 51%. That latter suggests they increased overhead to gain that volume.
    Sounds to me like operating overhead is way too high for the business they are doing.
    Also changed operations chief. Does not bode well for the future.

    I held, expecting them to at least make the - 0.06 mark. Foolish, Fool

    At $1.07? Might be tempted but all my mad money is tied up in this dog, and a few others.
    At this level it would take a 24% gain to make me whole. Will be a long time getting there. A 20% gain will trigger wholesale selling and knock it down again.

    Lots of talk!

    Greco & Babs:

    I think you are just loud-mouther's. My divulging of shares held was not meant to brag but to disclose
    that I was serious about the matter to which I spoke.
    300,000 shares is B.S. That would make you 3rd in ownership if you were an institution, and 4th if a mutual fund. And a hundred thousand shares? Don't be ridiculous: That kind of ownership is for serious speculators who don't waste their time jawing with nincomputes on this board.
    My holding is just one of six involving $50,000 of mad money that I use to keep me occupied in retirement.
    I call my self a speculator but in reality am a gambler. Anyone is who dabbles in junk like this stock.
    Don't think Bio will hit $2.00 any time soon; and more than that, ridiculous?

    Find some one else to mock, kids

    Rather foolish talk don't you think? This market is toppy and the big operators have moved to the side lines.
    Just little players like us are in the game. I hold 9,000 shares at an average price of $1.32, each time buying when I thought it had bottomed out. It hit $ 1.11 today. Who knows where bottom is. If some little players get spooked and run for the doors, this thing could break a buck.

    Sentiment: Hold

  • lucky84dog by lucky84dog Nov 6, 2015 1:58 PM Flag

    All hopeful speculation but just making noise.
    Although I hold 10,000 shares bought on spec., I understand that it is trading where it started the year.
    Further more it has not traded much higher than the year before. Nova must be an idiot indeed. And
    who will move this stock Nova? Many institutions will not buy into micro caps under $5 per, and the retail trade
    is all small peckers like you and me. $10 in a cats meow; I would be in hog heaven if it could hit .90 by year end.

    Growth of share value?

    by lucky84dog Oct 12, 2015 1:48 PM
    lucky84dog lucky84dog Oct 29, 2015 12:28 PM Flag

    Me too! Guess I will hold until Dec. report.

  • lucky84dog by lucky84dog Oct 29, 2015 12:22 PM Flag

    Any one out there have a feel for what the earnings report might convey?
    I believe they will report in the black as they last suggested, in spite of the low price of oil.
    Had oil prices been increasing, then I would also predict a large jump in share price too.
    Afraid that jump in price is not to be until next year when it may face a market in recession.

    And please; you out there touting for the trading BS'rs, go away!

  • lucky84dog by lucky84dog Oct 12, 2015 1:48 PM Flag

    This is a dead investment. Yet one analyst places share value at $8 in one year? Does anyone out there believe such nonsense? Do you believe it could even make $4? The only insider activity is when there is a change of officers and those shares are treasury shares issued for a guaranteed profit, because officers are required to hold shares.
    Looks like I will have to sell at a loss to free up capital.
    Are you still holding Dagger?

  • lucky84dog by lucky84dog Sep 28, 2015 10:57 AM Flag

    So today it was going to run up big huh?
    Looks to me like some cut and run instead. How do you expect this thing to swim up stream when
    the Bio-Tech market is getting creamed these last few days? Don't get me wrong. I am content to hold since I am in @ $1.12. Eventually this thing will pay, just not as rapidly as some of you think.

    still holding on my 80,000 shares..

    8,000 @ 0.7325 avg. Only a fool would bet $72,000 on the come on a micro like IBIO.
    It is one of 6 holdings in my "Mad Money" trading portfolio which totals $58,000.
    Don't think you are a fool or have that much in IBIO. I do accuse you of being a loud mouth braggart; here on this board seeking attention. Pretty juvenile!

    I call to question your claim to owning 80,000 shares of IBIO. At its low of $0.43 on 2-3-15 you would have invested $34,400? Don't think so. Your not that big of player: all mouth. Say that you are that smart and have that kind of money: You would have passed up selling at $1.32 on 2-17-15 for a 307% gain? Nope, don't think so, you are just a loudmouth bragging juvenile. So please get lost and leave this board to those of us who actually own this stock.
    By the way: Thanks to all you bad mouther's; you filled my my limit order at $0.65.


    Sentiment: Strong Buy

    I have decided to kick starteam down to the juvenile class team for offering so much drivel.

  • lucky84dog by lucky84dog Sep 18, 2015 11:42 AM Flag

    Rumors are started by people on this board who know no more than you.
    If you have the faith, buy it. If you have the courage, short it: but do something rather than hope.
    I'm long 8,000 shares at a small profit. You can help.; increase my profit, or drive it down so I can buy more.

  • lucky84dog by lucky84dog Sep 18, 2015 11:26 AM Flag

    I am in this thing 6K shares @ .76. Fishing for another 2K @.65.
    You basher's get to work and drive this puppy down so I can fill.

    What institutions Crazy? Looks to me that banks are the largest holders and I wonder if they bought in or "inherited" those shares. Don't see any major Fund families, or State groups holding. Maybe the banks are unloading, are you sure that was buy?
    It would be nice to see some real upward movement, I'm a happy holder at $1.07.
    Are you a holder or just a talker?
    LOL, Lucky

  • lucky84dog by lucky84dog Sep 2, 2015 1:32 PM Flag

    Do not understand this stock! It trades infrequently on very, very low volume. So low in fact that I am locked in with 3,000 shares. Even to unload at a loss, one would have to work in very small increments. Is there any one out there who believes this thing will really increase in value over time?
    Dagger; what do you say?

    Sentiment: Hold
