    after it simmers a while, steam will build up, and pop will occur, imo. I have taken postion, if it continues, will load by $6. In meantime, I suggest NVIV and NSPH for good gainer on Monday/Tue, etc.

    rwop, I like your enthusiam, and support here, I am also becoming more proactive in the cause. Can it help? Maybe, as long if only facts are spread. I suggest that you , beginning tomorrow, make another mass posting re. NVIV, just very brief, ask the people to dd NVIV, no pumping, just the basic facts. I myself have made loads of money on ideas I get from boards? Where else do u get them? Cramer? No thanks, neighbor? maybe, putting the word out there can add investors, but will not cause investors to sell. I suggest u do a huge amount of expensive health care stock board, especially the big bios, as they have made a fortune, and ready to invest in start ups. I would say u could hit 300 to 500 boards between 8 sunday morning and openingnbell monday. Pumping? No, Educating? yes In closing, a famous old baseball player back in the 1950s was openly stated about his abilities, yes he was good, and he told people he was good. When some media folks said to him, you are bragging, his response was, "It ain't bragging if its the truth" , so I will say, it aint pumping if its the truth.

    junk and av, good to see your responses, no, I do not expect any trial patients will be walking in 6 months, but as junk stated, it does not take a lot to make major improvement in SCI patients, bowel control, sexual function just 2 that come to my attention.For sure, that is a Major news story. As for Cosby analogy, yes, I feel it is very comparable, major news outlets have done specials on the obesity epidemic, CNBC did a 1 hour special about 3 years ago. I am a former Health Care educator, I pushed for approval of drugs to combat it, and 2 have been approved, by ARNA and VVUS. I admit, I made a ton of money on the ARNA approval, and it is widely advertised on TV and other media today. Michelle Obama was involved, I contacted my congressman when I saw powerful wall street hedge funds shorting ARNA. The people prevailed, the drug is on the market. I can not speak for anyone else here, everyone has a conviction, maybe, I guess some just go along for the ride. But today, I joined the Christopher Reeve foundation, and am planning on becoming proactive. Monday, I am contacting my congressman, to see what he can tell me about the SCI status. Maybe some of u know, President Obama issued a statement to FDA several years ago to get off their butts and speed up any trials that can be life changing. I will probably take other steps in this matter this week. But, to sit here daily, and weekly, and see my retirements growing so much is not my main reason for being here, I am a competitor, I actually need no more money, but more is find, if it is honest money. ARNA stock gains were honest money, and a good product prevailed. NVIV the same, now, for some reason, we may have to become very proactive in getting the word out about this possible break through in SCI treatment. Yes, the Cosby analogy is very real, as they victims, if they sat on their butts and waited for mainstream media, would still have no vindication, but they acted differently.

    If Jimbo had said yesterday that no, I dont like ACAD, he would have been the laughing stock of the financial universe. Of course, he loves it, but as we know, there is a tiny chance that something adverse happens, therefore he covers himsalf by saying it is a spec plate. Got to read between the lines.

    After reading the info on the Reeve foundation site, I registered and joined the foundation. Is any one here a participant? I have received an email saying I am accepted, but am having trouble signing in. They have an extensive number of services, including research info and a discussion board, and am looking forward to learning if the NVIV procedure is being discussed or included in the research info. Does any one here have any information on this?

  • I know some of you have done dd on some of the financial projections and needs assessment of the NVIV treatment. I thought I would throw out some stats from Christopher Reeve foundation on SCI. If this is old news, I thought I would at least present it for newbies. 12,000 Americans become paralyzed each year, some more traumatic than others. Right now, in the United States, there are 6 million paralyzed people, 1 in 50. Now, I suspect that, like me, many of you think that cant be right, because I rarely see any paralyzed person, Then I got to thinking, you know what, maybe it is because very few of them venture out of there homes. Re causes of SCI, they attributed 28% to work related accidents, 24 % to car accidents, and 16 % to sports/recreation accidents, those being the top 3 causes. Lifetime cost for a 25 year old SCI patient ranges from $700,000 to $3 million. Fairly soon after treatment in a hospital, 98% go to private homes. Now, from my take away from these stats, I suspect the vast majority of those who go to private homes, rarely, if even leave those home during the rest of their life. Most Americans have no idea of the prevalence of SCI in America, like most every disease, or other misfortune, until it affect some one u know well, u do not even think about it. These statistics really startled me, I had no idea the number was so high, but now I even more clearly understand the magnitude of what the NVIV procedure can do to help this huge population. Mind you, this is USA only, which means the numbers for the whole world are many times higher. As I stated in another post yesterday, it is mind boggling that the NVIV procedure, and FDA aprroved trials in major hospitals, are not receiving major news coverage in this country.Why, I do not know. But, hopefully that will end soon. Would that be good? Why not, if only the facts are reported, worthy news media should only deal in facts, and the facts are easy to find.

    You say it is going to single digits, u know what, I would love that, because, even though my $3600 investment would only be worth $324, using ,09 as your single digit prediction, though would like it to go under a nickel. So, then, at ,09 cents, I would double down, buy $3600 worth., 40,000 shares, giving me 46,000 shares. My share cost avg. is then 16 cents. Then, lets say HERO performs a miracle, and sp goes to .32 cents, now my 46000 shares are worth $14, 720, over a double of what I invested. Then it does a 50% run up to.48 cents, about where it is today. Lets see, 46,000 shares at .48 equals $8, $22,080. Then, it does another 16 cent gain to .64 cents, which makes my shares worth $29, 440, a 4 bagger on my $7200 investment. You and many say that would not be possible, but, I use history as one of my major factors in predicting the future. In Feb 2009, HERO sp was $1.44, then, 7 months later, in Sept 2009 the sp was $6.74., that was a 4 bagger in 7 months. Lets look elwhere in oil industry, another small oil stock, EXXI. In Feb 2009, sp was $1.65, 2 years later, Feb 2011 sp was $34, an increase of 20 times, yes 2400 per cent in 2 years. Quite frankly, studying historical charts tells me that most people who win the lottery dont buy a ticket, they buy shares in a beaten down company. Lets see, Las Vegis Sands, 2009, sp 2.28, 2 years later, $60. How about JAZZ pharma, April 2009, sp was .60 cents, today it is $170,00, yes, that is right. So if someone stepped up and invested $5,000 in little JAZZY in 2009, today it would be worth $1, 333,000 dollars. I am not saying there is a guarantee of making huge profit, and I could lose the whole $7,200, but I could easitly live with that. The greater the risk, the greater the reward. Man, I wouls salivat at getting opp. to buy HERO in single digits. Would anyone here love to do the same? Just curious.

    I may spend the weekend here, have not laughed this much in months, some guy said he is selling all the way down to a nikel, and also says he is living in Hawaii and surfing, I think I actually know the guy, bless his heart. If it who I think it is, he is down around New Albany, That is in Mississippi, I was down there on business a while back, and ran into a guy at the Quick Stop conv. store, he was mumbling about stock market, and talking how oil stocks were going to get crushed, said he was an expert, and his mission in life was to save peoples money, said he had been warning on the internet, and I think I recall him mentioning a hero, and somethin sandy, sandrige. He said he had it made, could walk to the store, he lived so close, and pointed bout 1000 feet down the road to an old trailer house.

    ibank, sure, the big institutions are avg down in their profits, guess they will sell down to single digits, 9 cents or less. If u were not so pathetic, u would be funny, but I must admit I got a good chuckle from your post. The internet was made for clowns like u who live in la la land, u get a catchy name, start day dreaming, then posting, the sad thing is u still in that old single wide trailer, and got to chop wood for heat since the furnace went out. Yes, I m calling u out, because the truth is what it is. I sold at ,87, kept 1,000 just to keep it on my screen, bought back at .51 and .46, hope to add lower. Hope you enjoy your bloney sandwich for lunch, taking the wife to Capital Grille,

    Guys, I dont think you get the point I am making, If Kim K. can take a selfie, and millions see it, and goes viral on internet, ARNA and VVUS 3 years ago were in trials for obesity drug, CNBC ran a 1 hour special program to pub. the problem and potential new drugs, and I could state numerous other items, in and out of medicine, where just a spark of effort gets media big time attention. We are not talking a cholesteral drug here, or thyroid, we are talking the potential most amazing medical break through since polio was eradicated. I know most here can not relate to it, but I am old enough to recall it, young ones here should dd polio to fully understand what Salk and Sabin did. But after watching the CNN special on Bill Cosby, I see startling similarities between the Cosby story and NVIV story. The Cosby revelations actually came out 9 years ago, and he settled out of court with the accuser, 20 other women have since revealed they were victims, many tried to get media to pick up on it, but they said media would not touch it. One lady went to an attorney, and she said he laughed at her, and said u must be crazy, Bill Cosby would never violate a young lady. , Anyway, I have some ideas I am working on this weekend, hopefully the media and general population get in on what is happening here.

  • something to peruse over weekend. I know the stock market folks saw the stocks come to the market. From what I can see, with dilution, the high of 2013 is around $4.70,or maybe higher, while current sp is under $3. Considering the p umper influence of Frank and his monkey show, as opposed to the current actual FDA testing, and with seemingly impressive results, why are we far under the same value as when Frank was showing off the monkeys? I guess I am wondering why NVIV or some media company is not picking up on these happenings with the trial participants? I did see on CNN where the media decided to block out the ladies who called out Bill Cosby, seems like the same here., surely some good news person, at least in healthcare, could pick up this story.Strange to me, in this time of media overkill, what is happening with Kardashians, etc, probably the 2nd biggest medical development in last 100 years, behind Salk and Sabins eradication o f polio, is getting zero media attention. I would think think in this era of texting, twitter, and instagram, someone in the know could do so with major media, I am old folk, I email, post, and do internet stock deals, any one here capable of the more modern types of messaging? If so, I would think the magor networks, newspapers, etc would love to know of this new development in spinal paralymis treatmen, are we in a coccoon?

  • The company is not going BK, as the analyst had to admit today, though he said it was going towars zero, but not to zero. This may be the biggest no brainer buy in the stock market. The big money holders, as well as the big money institutions know, the big money will return, when oil rises, and the scared out retail investors sell . It is sad, but true.Yes, like many of us old southern farmers, we like our bourbon, and it has impacted my spelling, but facts are facts, I am hitting the sack, got to milk the cow in the mornin, and collect the eggs..

    No, this is a downturn in oil, not an economic downturn for the economylike in 2008/09. This is just a simple correction in crude oil, Hero goes in hibernation, like many comapanies, the guys play poker while they wait for price to rise, then, back to normal. You guys should live in the south, u would know that there is a lot of fishing, and crappie fish fry s going on, it is like spring break for the roughnecks and roustabouts., they enjoys drawing unemployment, fishing, and having cook outs and drinks with their buddies.

    I was dealing with portfoios in several fields today, and did not get to devote much time here, I admit, I sold 80% of HERO at 80 cents, as I saw it droppinf a few days ago. but ar .48 cent range, I doubled down, will see what happens next week, but will take my chances.

    Sure. it is a no brainer buying opp, I am bringing 500 of my EXXI shares here to buy to buy 6, 000 HERO. Also took 500 EXXI to buy 1500 more SD today, this pull back is not putting good companies in BK, as the analyst today said, who wrote a fear tactic article, in order to bring HERO sp down for wall street longs. You can toss darts at a board covered with small Texas/ OK based oil stocks, and probably in 2 years have a double or tripple. I think the dow and sand p doubles every 12 years.

  • though I had to get out of this, and others last march due to financial needs, I am thrilled for all here. However, I did enjoy the run up from the eventful day in August 2013, having been in and out of HZNPP in 2011/12 years, with profit, I was sitting in wonder as the NASDAQ was halted for about 4 hours due to tech difficulties. During that time, I noticed HZNP was among the leaders that day, going to 2.35. As soon as they got up, I added at 2.38, and closed around 2.55. By March, 2014, sp was I believe $19 to $20 pre market one morning, in March, as it went down, I had to sell at $18 range, as I am a retired teacher, and not real wealthy, but the good ending is, a friend here in TN , whom I referred is a holder. glta, I think a close over $20 is a first.
