Karenlupa: IF one is down 50, 60, or 70 percent we are looking at paper losses and there is no reality to this type of decline unless you sell. Paper gains or losses are not meaningfull whatsoever unless you sell. Only at that point are your losses meaningfull. You are simply looking for a feel good situation if you are up on paper or a feel bad situation if you are down. When I buy this type of speculative, high risk stock I ask myself how long will it probably take to make any money on this. Back in 2008 I thought it would take between 4 to 7 years. I'm still in my comfort zone. I hope you can see where I'm coming from. Please don't label me a pumper or a basher or whatever term so many labels folks like to place on others. I first recognized that stem cells is the future of medicine. I then did DD on about a dozen companies in this field. My "gut feeling" was spiked by studying all I could find on Dr. Robert Lanza. He is a winner. He has what I call grit and determination. I decided to hitch a ride on his star and here I am today. Before I go I just want to mention that I am not a constant trader like in and out daily or weekly etc. I have always picked stocks with an eye to the future and in time if your DD is good you do quite well. I know, I know, the stock pundents today will tell you that buy and hold is the past and really not in vogue today. I have never listened to many of these so called experts. I follow my own path. My advice to you and others on this board is be an individual and not a sheep in the flock. I am sincere when I say that I want anyone who has money invested in ACTC to do well. Just don't think that today's price will always be there. IF it even goes down to 5 cents or less you must ask yourself this. How has this drop affected me? ONLY your own perception. You still own your shares and that has not changed. NOW, if you sell then and only then has your perception been realized. Try and not worry. Worrying can cause stress and stress will harm your immune system. Good luck.
Sentiment: Strong Buy
I haven't been on this board in quite some time and all I see now is folks who don;t seem to remember why they bought this stock. Patience to many here seems to be a few months or even less. It's like you can't see the forest for the trees. I've been with this stock since 2008 and the company has made tremendous strides since then. If you bought this stock because you wanted to be instantly wealthy you just simply made a mistake. These trials take time (many years) and are moving ahead. For those new to stock investing November and December is when people sell stocks that they have a paper loss to acquire the tax benefit. You have to be careful though because a sudden positive announcement from the company could happen at any moment and you are left on the wrong side of your sell transaction. This is the time to be buying shares and not selling. This is strictly human nature and must be recognized. Investors will love ACTC at $1.00 but hate it at .062. It seems with age one learns what real patience is and if you are of the younger generation you have just been raised with instant gratification in life. Take a tip from an old geezer who has been in the market for over 40 years. Look ahead. The pot of gold at the end of the stem cell rainbow is forming now. IMO you stay the course you will seize that pot of gold. Give up on the stock and you can tell your children and grandchildren about the one stock that could have made you a rich person but it was just too slow in coming and I threw in the towel and gave up. Good luck to all here.
Sentiment: Strong Buy
I was watching the evening news tonight and they said that today, August 21st, the Republican platform added "No federal funding for embryonic stem cells". Now I realize that ACTC does not count on any federal funding from the government for stem cell research. I also know that many items that are placed in either party's platform is not eventually supported but it makes you wonder. I see it this way. If you are an investor in a company that is involved in embryonic stem cells and you vote for the Republican ticket it's like the chickens voting for Colonel Sanders. Scarey thought.
I have no idea of your age but remember what Lloyd Benson did to Dan Qualye in that great vice presidential debate. Joe Biden will make Ryan look bad. The Republicans just gave the election away when they went with this guy Ryan. Observe how the seniors vote in November in Florida. Obama will win in November. Take that one to the bank!
I see you state you are just 25 years old. Son, you are "wet behind the ears" when it comes to the stock market. You need to try and obtain a real job because you suck at the one you are doing. LOL LOL LOL Have a good day now.
Sounds like you might be from southern West Virginia. Regardless of your opinion and you certainly have the right to it BUT you know Obama will be relected for 4 more years. Most of the Republicans know it to but hey you have to act like Mitt will win. By the way, while we are on a money board do you have a bank account in the Cayman Islands? LOL
Wake up kids. This country will NEVER have good paying jobs until these corporations bring back all of these jobs that were shipped overseas. They say they will never do that so you youngsters had better prepare yourselves to stay working right up to the day you die. It's coming. I have had conversations with young folks between 25 and 40 and they stare at me in complete disbelief when I tell them what it was like in 1966 when a kid just coming out of the service or high school could get a good paying job with wonderful benefits and could raise a family of four and send their children to college without all of these student loans. Yep, it sounds like a dream scenario but it actually was the norm. Now all I hear is that the kids who have no future and no meaninful assets are anxious to vote for the Repubs who steered these good jobs out of this country in the name of the almighty dollar. It's kind of like the chickens voting for Colonel Sanders. Oh well!
Well you sure hit it right on the head there. We put an idiot (Bush) in there and everyone knew after 4 years what he was and folks put him right back in. All the Republicans would like to see Obama gone but they all know deep in their heart that he will be reelected. Republicans had other people to run but they all chose not to. Mitch Daniels, Chris Crisco but they knew they couldn't win. Let's face it here. The party is in bad shape right now.
You folks need to realize one fact. This country is run by lobbyists and big corporations. Politicians and voting are put in place to make you think you have a say. YOU DON'T!! You can vote for whomever you like but the folks who run this country already know who they want in November and it's not going to be Romney. They are already destroying the middle class and they will stay with the game plan for 4 more years.
IMO Obama will be there again for four more. No competition.
Doing just fine Evil. If things got any better with me I'd be scared! Here's one for you while I'm here tonight. "Inside every old man is a young man screaming, " What the hell happened"?
The ignorance on this board never ceases to amaze me.
take a hard look at mutual funds. You don't have to
Intelligent folks here KNOW it shouldn't BUT there are some really mentally challenged folks around this Yahoo board. I feel that this board has the proper name of Yahoo because we really have a bunch of yahoos here.
Would you please name just ONE company that is further along in a clinical trial than ACTC for these 2 eye diseases. If you cannot the board will take it as another made up BS post from a basher. Will be awaiting the name of this company.
