    ...is here, now...tomorrow, the STORM BEGINS!!!...

    3) tuesday am is THE reporting, and cc...

    imo, you can expect covering trading volume to begin to 'kick in' on monday afternoon, along with the subsequent yfmg "intimidation" postings...

    tuesday, expect 3-4x the normal trading volume, possibly more...

    by the time the smoke BEGINS to clear on wednesday of next week, expect that 5x the normal volume will have traded between tuesday and wednesday...

  • ..."FIRM DOLLAR" mostly concerns the translation from a high dollar to a lower euro - or some other financial denomination - somewhere else in the world, say an asian country...

    but this primarily deals with PRODUCT selling companies, and not so much SERVICE selling companies, and the vast majority of CYBER-SECURITY companies - incl. VDSI - deal in SOFTWARE - CODE, in one way or another - not TANGIBLE PRODUCTS so much...

    in other words, VDSI's sales - as in most software-primarily publicly traded company stocks - will be significantly less impacted by a 'strong dollar' than an IBM, a Starbucks, an Apple, etc.

    i am looking forward to next Tues-Wed. VDSI's fundamentals and operations - coupled with an unusually retail investor's shorted stock holdings - likely translates into an intriguing 'short squeeze' over those 2 days, assuming the guidance of the corp cc is not outlandishly negative, which is unlikely...

    i'd expect the pps to top $28 by end of next week, and test $30 again...jmo...

  • ...few people will be PROACTIVE and get tested for CANCER somewhere in their body BEFORE symptoms become VISIBLE or FEEL-ABLE...

    by then, the tumor(s) will almost certainly have metasticized elsewhere. that will preempt use of Cs-131, and lead to chemo as the only viable treating option. once chemo is used, radiation will almost certainly come next, IF the chemo is effective in killing cancer cells outside the original diseased organ...

    so, the installed base of Cs-131 will have a tough time expanding, just because of the very nature of people, and their dealings with cancer.

    if you doubt this, then you've probably never had cancer...

    ...there are several things EVERY INVESTOR should do for EVERY STOCK he/she owns...

    1) go to the company's website and go through it THOROUGHY - LINKS available on yf PROFILE page...
    2) listen to every conference call live or recorded - or read the transcript - esp. the Q&A with analysts - who will explore the good, the bad, and the ugly w/penetrating questions of whoever of mgmt is on the call...

    i use etrade primarily for stock trading...i've also got accts at ameritrade, scottrade, and schwab. but NONE offer a DIGITAL TOKEN like etrade does...which, randomly, every 60 seconds, generates a unique 6 digit code for logging in - whether i'm on a private or public computer. the state-of-the-art in digital security at present.

    so, go to VDSI's website, and explore it as though it was your loved one's physical body!! go EVERYWHERE - L-E-A-R-N the specifics and the details - good and bad - of the company you are considering buying stock in, or own stock in.

    whether short or long, do it for VDSI. note the who's who of organizations that use VDSI products/services, incl. Penn State Univ., Indiana Univ., Mizuho bank (Japan), Commonwealth bank, etc...(listed to the right of the Cliff Brown CFO recorded video interview...

    go to the SOLUTIONS & SERVICES TABS and R-E-A-D each service that appears on each drop-down menu...and make sure you UNDERSTAND each one - if not, research more until you do!!!

    let this statement 'sink in' - "+200.000.000 devices sold | 10.000 companies | 1.700 financial institutions | in +100 countries".

    read about VDSI's DIGITAL CODE READ-OUT PASSWORD AUTHENTIFICATION tokens (just like my etrade one, which easily could have come from VDSI)...

    and then, if you are SHORT - and decide to STAY SHORT - good luck with THAT!!! you'll NEED IT!!!

    and, DO THIS WITH EVERY STOCK YOU OWN!!! isn't YOUR MONEY WORTH IT???!!!

    ccjjpp, i've owned both NBG and MCP before. i bought NBG at .98 and sold it at 1.50, pocketing over $200,000 in NET PROFITS in the process. It went up to $2.00 after i sold it. at 1.12 - bought friday - the risk/reward ratio is skewed strongly in my favor...

    i bought MCP at .75 and also own CALLS for a .85 strike price good til 1/16 and 1/17 - LEAPS!!! it's not the first time i've bought MCP in the past 2 yrs...again, the risk/reward ratio is strongly skewed to the upside, in my favor...

    there really isn't that much difference between these, and ISR, if the truth be known!!!!! you may not agree, but all 3 are SPEC stocks!!!!

    ntb

    i also bought VDSI at $7.50 last yr, have added aggressively since then, now own 40,00 shares with a cost basis of $10.05 or so, so i'm up well over 100% on those shares, too. when VDSI beats on earnings and sales on 4/28, and the stock goes to $30 or so, i'll be in even better position. IF, as an aggressive basher of THAT stock says, it sells off and drops to $12 pps, i'll STILL be up 20%!!! once again, risk-to-reward ratio, baby!!!!!

    FOR THAT TO HAPPEN, b-meyers would need sound evidence of the VALUE of Cs-131, and PROOF of wide-spread acceptance, and want to buy as an INSURANCE POLICY, to keep the 'competition' under control by OWNING IT. unfortunately, the database of FACTUAL INFO is so small - 100 oncology ctrs - at best - nad $5 MIL a YR. in sales - at best - that there is no sound, widespread data to back up the reason for such a purchase...particularly at the pps - and capital expenditure amount - that the ceo is seeking...

    ...pointing out DEFICIENCIES in mgmt, strategy, etc....

    i'm sure most holders of ISR stock think i'm a basher. if being willing to point out questionable strategies or inactivity qualifies as being a basher, then perhaps i am...but i see it as asking for answers for simple "why not" questions, more than anything...

    and too many posters on this mg who ontinuously rate ISR a "strong buy" might question the shaky status quot s well. it's really a "duh" series of observations...

    incidentally, just bought 1,000's of shares of MCP, as well as Jan. '16 and Jan. '17 CALLS. after the Siemens announcement, which lends significantly more credibility to the co's future, it's a risk/reward ratio seriously tilted to the 'reward' side, which is the most important question in considering buying ANY stock - or should be. i also just bought NBG again!!! again, risk/reward ratio strongly skewed in favor of "reward"...

    i fully expect to earn upwards of $250,000 between the 2 stocks in add'l profits this year, if not more...

    who knows - by end of yr, ISR could be anywhere from $1.40 pps to $1.60 pps - but i seriously doubt any higher...

    WHAT FUNDS will invest in ISR after friday's news about the lung cancer trials just halted by bristol meyers after such successful end point results???...

    and there will be other LUNG cancer trial drugs that come 'out of the woodwork' as well this year...

    TIME is a very valuable commodity for such drug trials - and the ceo of ISR is seemlngly IGNORING that asset for Cs-131...by the 'time' he pays attention, it may not matter anymore...he may get "lapped"...

    Bristol's Opdivo proves effective against second type of lung cancer
    By Ransdell Pierson

    (Reuters) - A large study of Bristol-Myers Squibb Co's Opdivo treatment has been halted after proving the drug is effective against the most common form of lung cancer, the company said, positioning the medicine for far wider use than its already approved lung cancer and melanoma indications.

    The U.S. drugmaker on Friday said the study, called Checkmate-057, was stopped early after an independent data monitoring committee concluded that Opdivo provided a survival advantage over docetaxel, a standard chemotherapy, among patients with previously treated non-squamous non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC).

    The so-called PD-1 inhibitor, which works by taking the brakes off the immune system, was approved by U.S. regulators last month to treat the less-common "squamous" form of NSCLC that had spread following treatment with chemotherapy.

    Opdivo is also approved for use against metastatic melanoma following treatment with Yervoy, another Bristol-Myers immuno-therapy.

    Opdivo, whose chemical name is nivolumab,"

    OH WELL...if this is correct, the LUNG studies will be rendered potentially impotent...

    i completely agree with you!!! and don't misunderstand me - i haven't sold a SINGLE SHARE OF VDSI yet - even though my cost basis is just over $10.00...probably should have by now...

    but i'd rather let the profits "ride", particularly thru earnings, which i expect to be strong, DESPITE the stronger "DOLLAR"...and i think GUIDANCE will be stronger, too...

    i don't need the $$$...in trading MEA, NBG, CALL, TXMD, and others so far this year very successfully, i've grossed a NET UPWARDS of $500,000 - just so far this year!!!

    so, i can afford to be more aggressive, and go for even more profits...

    VDSI is the 'best of breed' in cyber-security...the fundamentals - FACTS & FIGURES - are impossible to realistically challenge for anyone who can actually 'read' them...the SHORT % is way over-done, and it has already been reduced by sane people who are COVERING!!!

    there are NO FUNDS SHORTING VDSI - unless possibly hedge funds. MUTUAL & PENSION FUNDS OWN THE STOCK BIG-TIME!!!

    WICKED STRONG BUY!!!!!
