  • Yes, we got a Medac settlement today. Yes, it's a positive that removes a bit of long-term cloud that can keep a lid on upside. And yes we ONLY got a one cent positive move, but have you noticed:
    - ATRS has been pushing to 52 week high territory over the last month
    - ATRS has been running into overhead resistance at $2.96 for the past 4 sessions, and today we cracked it (and the $3 level) before settling right back to the prior resistance level -- that's good technically!

    Instant gratification - everyone wants it, but you don't always get it. Today's events (plus the positives on the horizon) should help drive the ATRS stock price higher over the next several months. Patience!

    Looks like the start of a serious move

    Ah - so we had (barely) above average volume today in conjunction with an 8 cent positive move. I had hoped for more, but the 5 day chart shows a beautiful steady upward stair climb.

    Should see more eyes on ATRS come next week given the close above $2.90.

  • Long time ATRS holder, but not so frequent poster. I've liked the cup and handles that we've been forming on the charts recently (both short and mid-term ones!) - and IMO it really looks like this stock is going to move over the next several months. I hope we put in a nice positive move with above average volume today ... looks like we certainly have a shot at 800K+ shares traded.

    I won't be buying any more (the truck is full), but I'll be enjoying the ride.

    Here's to hoping on 3/31/2015 that the wrap bandage on CUR is finally not getting any bloodier. It's been a tough quarter for many of us as the data release expectations ran high and the results appear to be very good but not acknowledged by the investing community.

    I have to believe that the very last leg of the drop down was institutional selling to get CUR "off the record" for the quarter. I'd also have to think that with the sky-high possibilities and sub-$2 price tag here, that we'll see a little bit of green movement in the first ten trading days of April due to the same quarterly reporting dynamic.

    I unfortunately have no dry powder here, but I believe a healthy price rise is imminent. Those who doubt this is possible may want to look at ATHX's chart from late last year to today (and that was after a FAILED trial).

  • Biogen reported today that their Alzheimer's drug candidate reduced amyloid plaque levels in the brain by 70+%, and their PPS and market cap went up 6% (which is nearly $6B - that's 30x CUR's entire Market Cap).

    Gives you some idea of what could happen if NSI-189 shows hippocampal growth to treat Alzheimer's and other brain-related diseases.

    Instead of whole penny numbers all morning long. Tells me we've still got retail sellers bailing "at market", and any more serious buyers are waiting for a tide turn. Patience.

  • So AF and the short faction have taken their pound of flesh (in my case maybe 90 pounds), driving this all the way down to the base of the last technical rise. IMO, keeping it lower long-term than today's $2.16 spike is unlikely.

    Covering will ensue, slowly but surely as time passes unless there is swift company, medical, or other media backlash to to the wild misinterpretations of the results spewed by this faction. I hope for this -- otherwise, put it on the shelf for a couple of months and check it then. The science here appears sound. If you have dry powder, it is the time to buy more.

    .... precedes a breakout price movement in many instances. I like that we are over 600K shares already this morning. The chart looks ripe, IMO.

    we closed the gap open this morning with a couple of trades down at $3.62. Chart looks great. Headed higher now, and it's just the start. Congrats longs.

  • Good move on 3x Avg Daily Volume, closed just above a key $3.36 level, even traded down to $3.26 intraday to leave no unfilled gap. Looks a lot like the daily bar from 1/6 when it broke higher with volume. I expect to see some continuation tomorrow (assuming Mr. Market doesn't throw us a curve).

    Really nice consolidation day today after the spike EOD yesterday. Really like the picture here technically. News will launch this, IMO.

    technically pops us out of this long trough and on the path to $3 and beyond. Would like to see some volume accompany price movement here in the last 70 minutes of trading on Monday!

    Edgar--What was the short action yesterday?

    Just a cautionary word, FWIW -- I have monitored the daily activity and short positions in a number of small-cap stocks closely over the past 5+ years, and I have never found a correlation between that site's daily short% and the bi-monthly filings that capture short shares outstanding.

    48% is a number, but if that number is not validated in any way I'm not sure how it's useful.

    If The Street and Maxim Group are "friends" who needs enemies? They are the equivalent of using a loan shark as business startup money.

    This company has aligned itself with some of the best researchers and research hospitals in the world. It also has been prudent in managing its cash burn thus far. I'm quite happy with the makeup of my teammates.

    Institutional Buying

    Agree. There has been very little downside fluctuation in the price recently, yet consistent volume above the daily average. All very positive IMHO and it bodes well for ATRS's return in 2015.

    Now let's rock past $2.60. In a couple of weeks I think CUR will find itself on a few of those "Bios to own in 2015" lists -- and investors will be piling on top of each other to get in as the price escalates. Happy to already have built a position here.

    All IMO. Do your own DD.

    Looking for us to close above $2.60 to show capitulation / end of tax selling / height of nervousness (last day of STEM trial). This will set us up for traditional small bio rally time late Dec into early Jan 2015.

  • Means that $3 is immediately in play. Full completion of classic double-bottom on the chart, and we are fully in uptrend mode with MA crossover. Looking really good - glad I loaded the boat at $2 !!
