    They managed to move NUS 7% down today by selling themselves 26,000 shares. Be steadfast. Surprisingly it seems to be coming out of Merill Lynch Canada (39) along side the always P.I.T.A. Anonymous brokerage (1).

    Nope. Couldn't if I wanted to. Canadian Brokerages don't give margin to anything under $2. Yikes, if they did I probably would have more than double my share count!
    I don't like this delay. Everyday they don't announce, is another day something could happen to decrease the PPS (like the current gold/metals crash). What we are seeing is over-extended people having to cash in one stock to pay for margin calls on another. Someone sold 78,000 today... just weeks before the announcement. Shame.

    Finally! Something good about being a Canadian investor! None of that silliness up here. :-)

    Hey cmilteer3, I understand your point but I would also use it for mine. Those big hitters have 200 million shares. What keeps a share price level or going up is keeping the investment community aware of how great your company is doing (the things I mentioned before). Talking to "The big boys" may stop them from dumping their shares but it does nothing to increase the share price. Not promoting and marketing the company means the share price stay even or goes down. So, they poor management style they are employing directly effects those big players to the tune of 200,000,000 x PPS. Collectively management should have "three or four" big shoes up their but. If they promoted the company properly the dilution could have been done with a lot less shares or made a lot more money. If they want to raise more money the higher the PPS directly impacts that goal. If management is messing up, it then falls to the board to correct the issues.
    I disclosed before but it was a while ago... 276,500 shares, holding until after ship announcement, then re-buying before ship hits water (which might end up being a challenge considering recent trading volume).

    That is a very plausible theory. I hope there is some pump that goes with the announcement that will create a larger spike but it is good to keep one's head in check with a justifiable opinion like yours. They needed to keep the pace up. New contract, money to escrow, new ship contracted. Bang, Bang, Bang. All surrounded with positive forward looking statements, internal win announcements, continuous progress reports on reaching milestones. Enough noise to stay in the ears of the larger investment community for more than a day. This cone of silence that NUS seems to enjoy between conference calls is terrible business. Really, really bad public company management. The fact that they employ a person whose responsibility is "Investor Relations" and that they employ a person who is supposed to promote the company... where are they and what are they doing besides NOTHING. At what point are Geoffrey, Dr. Mohammad and Mark going to notice(?!) and make a difference in the company. A board exists for a reason other than ownership, cognac and cigars.
