One sure thing is that their post titles are in all CAPS!! Look at the posts on Friday and since then, which posts are in caps, which are negative? And, the stock is higher in PM than it was in AH on Friday, let's see where it opens, and closes.
Transparent idiots, or paid scammers.
I did a couple trips on EDAP, but have been out of it for a while. Saw the lower $, thot I would check out why it dropped.
Comments on your post:
When I owned it, they had a US company doing IR, and when I tried to contact them, their response was pathetic. So you are correct there.
No hedgie, or large player, wants to be in a stock that is illiquid. There is nothing EDAP can do about that. A 80M mkt cap? Large players want a few bill at the min. 80M is blow my min entry point, so I only had a very small position, and only as a very small hedge against my very large MDVN position (prostrate drugs).
Last, with a 80M mkt cap, expected rev next yr of 35M or so, shamefully low growth, weak balance sheet, etc, I would think EDAP is pretty fairly valued. I was in it for the US approvals, and it seems to me that those approvals won't produce any 2015 revenue.
So I stay on the sidelines...until I have a better picture of how their rev growth could become 25%/yr.
as best I can tell, after 3.2M shrs drove it down, under 4K shrs were traded AH, and those idiots were paying up. Maybe tomorrow they become geniuses, but 4K shrs after a 3.2M day is not even a drop in the bucket, not even a pee in the ocean.
another thot is the huge volume today, after the news is a day or 3 old. That kind of volume is usually a result of naked shorting. It will take time, but those shorters will eventually clear out, but that could take many days, and if they encounter no resistance, like today, the drift lower will continue.
watching it today, seems to keep drifting lower, and that seems to be the direction, until it stops. So who knows where it stops?
I jumped in too soon, I thot that the worst case for 2016 EPS would be 1.20/sh (1.28 is where the analyst numbers are right now), and a 12 PE on 1.20 is 14 bucks...8 seemed a good entry point.
That was wrong...
ACT has no time for crummy small fry, they have the capacity to buy large, well run companies. In fact, most biotech/drug acquisitions by the large players are for $5B to 20B.
PTX is not on anyone's radar, thus why it is slipping into investor purgatory.
here's the easy way, look at the topics that are in all caps. If more than half the topics are in all caps, invest elsewhere. No sense trying to beat the idiots, they are funded by the large HFTs and short funds.
I'm waiting for something under 10 bucks, but not 9.95, it shd see 9 after their Q1 rept, they haven't had a good rept in a while.
u r an idiot, and the guy who responded is a bigger idiot.
If, in fact, you are new to stocks, let me tell you the very most important thing to know about stock selection.
There is just one rule, buy the strong stocks in the strong sectors. Just FYI, energy has been the weakest stock in the weakest sector. If you think you can outsmart the mkt, think again, all the data, for 50 yrs, is against you.
Strong sectors are medical/biotech, and semiconductors. I have bio stocks that have more than doubled this yr. Only a good trader has made money in energy this yr.
Last, when you buy in a weak sector, like energy, you don't invest, you do fast trades.
GL, but to me, you sound like the mark at the poker game, pretty soon all your money will be gone.
There is, and don't wish for that! I was on one, for KNDI, a Chinese EV play, and the number of posts was ridiculous.
My theory was that they were free of negative viewpoints, and went wild with their over-optimism. Of course, they are all getting killed right now, they were saying KNDI would be 30 by the end of 2014, it's 14 now.
I had to get off that list, another disadvantage is that YHOO notifies you by email when there's a new post, and that service alone was sending me about 40 or 50 emails a day.
Anyway, there is a way to do it, but I don't recommend it.
Not to argue with your underlying premise, but TAXI? Ever hear of Uber? That has to hurt the taxi business.
They can fight the progress of social media and the new way of things all they want, in the end, Uber will be everywhere.
so silly, we know that global warming is a bigger threat to the US than these terrorists, our Fearful Leader told us so!
Ever time I go anywhere, I watch out for that global warming thing, who knows when it will get me!
6.12 has already gone to 5.55, what is the target now?
2015 eps means squat to me, all I want to see is a good Q4, then a good q1, etc...
