it actually makes ebola into a delicious dessert topping. non-dairy but delicious. i would expect that price action is due to it being touted as a disinfectant. maybe someone in the buying herd can explain where the rush of enthusiasm came from. i doubt it has anything to do with any other cause.
sorry, but that is just a flat wrong explanation of how the market actually functions. hedge funds do not have 50% margin. some pro trades have 5% margin allowing monster high leverage. the shorts on mygn are all institutional and the extent of the market pullback is miniscule. also the institutions are hedged on positions. so the explanation about difficulty covering mygn short positions is just silliness. same with the vaunted "squeeze". all nonsense. the shorts know what they are doing and are not rushing to the exits. mygn insiders have sold their own shares as well. the predictions that mygn made about prolaris this summer are obviously wildly incorrect as to timing. it is not dragging on because things are so awesome in DC.
i have my fingers crossed that they pull it out. they are not not not doing a good job educating the public as to the utility of their products.
so if it is to be used with chlorine, why include this?
"SDC offers a highly effective alternative to hazardous and difficult to blend chemicals currently used as OLR treatments in raw poultry processing."
the quarterly report will be the same as the all the other reports. additional decline in sales and a loss of a million or so dollars for the quarter. there is no reason for the company to exist any longer. at some point declines is revenue stop and it levels out at some pathetic level of sales. profit? lol. there is no way to make this profitable on any real scale. jones utterly missed the boat and the new products are 10 years behind the times. they are innovative, if you have a time machine. the sparkling water category is fully mature and so competitive with massive players involved. this is over. this is done. Cue is standing pat with something for everyone - in 2004. did she introduce an organic product? no. that is only 4 years behind the times. she just figured out people are not buying polycrap80 in their soda much any more. they have to do a giveaway to get people to drink the stuff. i would love to have something positive to say. who is going to get excited over sparkling water in 2015. maybe sodastream? with their collapsing sales could have told jen clueless that the sparkling water market was mature and faced slowing demand. no no. she will figure out herself.
they are registering shares for sale held by old insiders and the recent placement with subway. i do not see that anything has changed. the s-1 is about selling shares on the market, not issuing shares. you can issue stock that is restricted, subject to registration for public sale.
look, when these guys sit in a boardroom, they dont discuss how can we make our investors money. they discuss how they can make themselves money. the public investors are an inconvenient way to get to their promised land. in a private company it is a different story. a small public company really cares little about shareholders that are not inside. pure is no different. the old management made out tremendously well due to selling stock in a pipedream.
i do not know at this point what the future holds for shareholders here. i am hoping that they can close some sales, but it does not look like 2014 is the year for that.
if he was not buying, the stock would probably be under $9 at this point. seems like there is no shortage of shares willing to sell here, killing any uptrend. however, i dont see a justification for the price. not based on any current business. still waiting.
balding, honest answer. how much did you make on the trade so far.
and anyone who is critical of your tout on peix and the companion companies as well! is a true douchebagel.
there is no short position on this stock. the people on the board should be very skeptical after years and years of the same promises. and you have to address valuation. i would suggest PURE as a strong speculative play at 30-50 cents. usually with discount financing the price of the stock tends to drift toward that valuation. i would not be surprised, and even a bit relieved, to see the stock trade to 75 cents and consolidate. they may spend the next year getting approvals and certifications. i dont know. they have no sales momentum. and if subway is worth a million a year gross, then the stock is truly screwed for it will take years to gain another million in revenue. this may well be a low margin, low price and low volume proposition.
oh right. a big squeeze. we keep hearing about that.
now with declining short interest there will still be a squeeze that never happened?
i think that is the major issue they face. they have not proven that UCs are important long term or even short term. wind turbines and chinese buses? they lack a killer app so far. i think that they have possibilities like storage and trucking applications but they have yet to prove their value even to the auto industry. and even then is the IP meaningful? it appears not.
that is great. but it also kinda says that the current products might be obsolete already. that would inhibit enthusiasm for design wins. especially in automotive with long build cycles. mxwl has yet to answer back to the crushing stock retreat. and it appears that buses in china, is not a reliable market. especially when the chinese government detests using foreign technology and providers.
i am expecting that fairway will file for a re-org chapter 11. it is the only explanation i can see for the pricing. the debt is huge, especially in a rising rate environment and the leases seem too tough to handle. file chapter 11 and flush out the debt and lease challenges. that is what i would seek to do.
yes, balding is such a loser! only up 400% now since he said buy it. glad i kept my money invested with jones! jennifer clueless is kicking #$%$ only having lost half the sales of the company since she took over! awesome sauce Jen! sparkling water from jones!! an industry leading product innovation in 2002. if the cost of artificial coloring can stay low, we can limit losses to a million a quarter!! GO JONES!!!
sigh. saying what? that we have not tested on ebola? there is no hospital in the US or elsewhere even that will use PURE to disinfect. none. those markets are abandoned. maybe in 5 or 6 years if someone invests in the testing, who knows. but they are not even properly tested for all hospital pathogens. heck, they only had a decade and a hundred million dollars to work with. you expected compete testing?
they are years away from having all the food safety and food application data they could have, let alone having ebola applications.
if you read the information lambert presented it is rather clear that they do not forsee making a profit for a long while. next year it appears they expect to blow through the 6-7 million dollars. so when are they profitable? three years out? i don't know as they have not said. it would be nice to get through the upcoming fda certifications successfully and see if it attracts some interest.
the registration statement - so the shares could be sold - was withdrawn. there are many reasons to withdraw it. it can be refiled.
wise answer. this is far from a commodity. however, cree has never been a well-run business from a shareholder point of view. if this trades at a fair pe given the growth, you have a very long way to drop. maybe the company is worth $10 - $15 now? if market pressures continue, then sub $10. frankly, the free market is very, very poor at placing proper value on products and setting societal priorities. i also do not see their patent portfolio as helping them. it may even be a liability now to be a patent leader.
i can see it pulling back to $35 with any significant selling pressure. the short uptrend is broken and it is overbought. good time to sell calls.
