Well, my first target of $11 range has been reached. But still not a buy. Might be a value play at $8 or less.
Looks like you got killed on EFOI. FB held up fine. My advice was right. You fail.
Looks like the euphoria bubble has finally burst! This thing got ridiculously overvalued. They sell light bulbs, people. Not exactly rocket science.
I think Lonnie's surprise resignation put a damper on things. Not that anybody's really following this company. You gotta wonder why he would quit just before the Pheonix rises? Makes no sense. For now, Tekfit is hype until they can back it up with numbers. Not just revenue, but margin numbers. If they can't put up decent numbers into the initial launch, then I don't see replacement orders being much better.
Endroxal does sound intriguing. Thanks for those details. I would like to try it if it ever comes available. The question is how do we know that these same prescribing physicians who resist TRT won't also balk at the idea of artificially inflating LH and FSH? They seem to be really skeptical of messing with hormones unless the patient lost a thyroid gland or BOTH testicles, etc. Doctors don't seem to care if an otherwise healthy patient complains about low energy, brain fog, and low sex drive. Their response is get more sleep and exercise. Perhaps it is a general dismissal of "male" problems whereas womens' complaints are taken more seriously because they aren't expected to toughen up like a man. Just a thought.
Hiwatt1959, I share your concerns as well. I'd rather not have the TRT side effects if I could help it. I would try the Endroxal if a doctor offered it to me. Isn't it available off-label as Clomiphene? What is the difference between Endroxal and Clomiphene? I still believe all these drugs alter the natural state, because a healthy male is supposed to lose 1-3% of their testosterone level every year between age 40-60. That is in keeping with nature. So there is nothing natural about trying to stop it.
Thanks for the article. I believe regular PSA tests are standard procedure with testosterone replacement. Personally, if I had existing prostate cancer, I think testosterone replacement would take a back seat anyway. I once knew a primary care physician who actually thought testosterone replacement caused testicular cancer as well as prostate cancer. And these are LPCN's future gatekeepers. The whole situation is a joke.
You mean it gives middle-aged men a pot belly, saps their energy and depletes their sex drive over time? The natural state of 95-year old people is death. Yet doctors prescribe pills up to the last breath in defiance.
Medchip, the recreational use of testosterone isn't even the issue in my view. I know there are hormone clinics out there which cater to bodybuilders and athletes and charge an arm and a leg for their services. I'm talking about treating middle age men who are clinically low on testosterone and can barely function. They're not looking to grow muscles or compete in sports. Rather, they go to their regular MD's for relief and get a wall of resistance when they ask for testosterone treatments. It is infuriating. You mention to them the commercials on TV and the doctors become defensive and disregard it as gratuitous advertising. Now the commercials are gone altogether and the lawsuits starting. It was hard enough to get the gel before these events, it must be even worse now. Perhaps the Lipocene drug will change the reception from doctors, but it could be an uphill climb. Every doctor I've been to is really hesitant to mess with testosterone for fear of throwing off the body's "natural" state - as if men are doomed to become fat, depressed, low-energy lumps because God made us that way. It is a myth that needs to be busted, but I don't know who's going to bust it?
I find some doctors out there who mistakenly believe testosterone replacement causes prostate cancer (i.e., not just exacerbates existing prostrate cancer, but CAUSES it.) Half the battle is simply educating the prescribing doctors.
Has anyone actually tried to get a prescription to treat low-T by a mainstream MD? It is hard to find an MD willing to prescribe testosterone, even if your blood work shows low testosterone and you have symptoms of low testosterone. Something is going on behind the scenes where the doctors are afraid to prescribe testosterone for some stupid reason. In my experience, nobody wants to risk prescribing it, but they will all send you to another specialist in hopes that he will prescribe it. They all pass the buck. I've never seen a "drug" strike so much fear in the hearts of primary care physicians, urologists, and endocrinologists, as testosterone does. There used to be a lot of "Low -T" commercials on television recently, but now I never see them at all. Yet I still see the same amount of Cialis and Viagra commercials. I always wondered why they bothered with Low-T commercials on TV when the poor customer won't be able to find a doctor willing to prescribe the darn thing in the first place. Now I see no Low-T commercials at all, and this has me worried for the future of testosterone replacement therapy.
I hope you're right. I took a small bite of the stock. A little concerned about the FDA's timid history with steroids and oral replacement. Not sure how the oral testosterone sufficiently by-passes liver metabolism to create dosage without toxicity, but perhaps this is the one. We'll see.
The biggest risk by far is not getting FDA approval for their oral testosterone drug. Arguing over whether the stock will hit $60 or $300 is really jumping the gun.
Why would I mention my protective puts? It's just insurance in case of broad market collapse. I am not making money on the net position.
Amelanchere, thanks for the civil reply. My analysis was strictly geared toward commercial contracts, not government contracts. My concern is that there seems to be a lot of euphoria surrounding the one Clevekand Clinic contract from last week, and yet the numbers do not seem to warrent such euphoria (unless more hospital contracts come quickly on the heels of the Cleveland Clinic's).
I hold puts on FB for protection. Why don't you address my analysis instead of slinging ad hominums.
