grant: I feel your pain with DDD and SSYS. I made a little money with both of them, but missed the big move.
One suggestion sort of in the 3D space I remain in is ONVO. They are in medical research and use 3D printer technology to grow liver assays for medical research. This is about to be commercialized in the next couple of months. Big opportunity in this and other medical field (i.e. kidney, etc.).
ONVO has a good group of quality people starting with Keith Murphy and company. They have formed alliegiances with key opinion leaders (KOLs) such as Roche, and all the feedback thus far is positive. ONVO is under 8 now, but should much higher by the end of the year or mid-next year at the latest.
I don't often recommend stock, but feel confident about this company. Check them out and invest only if you like their potential as much as I do. As with all Yahoo MBs, we've got our share of flakes, but also quality posters such as twojugglers (juggsy, for short). GL
I visited the fitxlong website, don. Saw the Ukraine pics dated 21st and 22nd, I believe. Read most of the comments.
Sounds to me like Bill is back, but who knows. I think we are in agreement that this is not the best way to keep the shareholders informed, but I guess its better than nothing.
The sketchiness of the updates/PR's/etc. is why I don't have more money invested in FITX. So, until I see something more concrete (i.e. license announcement or something on that order), I remain underweight this stock.
Thanks for the website info. GL
Dates of trip, not known. The inspection on 7/31 just announced yesterday with a very brief PR.
I am long, but this is not how a normal company operates...
I think most of us has had chubbs on "ignore" from, basically, the first day or two of joining the board.
I guess you're a lot more patient than us, o2... :)
You should have grilled her, juggsy!!! Just kidding, of course.
Well, if she and other researchers from different countries are teaming up with ONVO, that's proof that Murphy and company are on the right track. And we investors will be rewarded in due time.
Oh! THAT person!
Tell me/us about the meeting. Did she have good things to say about ONVO? I guess you made it a point to go to the university to talk with her since you were in the area. Didn't you?
Interested in your impressions of the work they are doing with ONVO.
You did the prudent thing at this point. Stop beating yourself up. With what you are holding, I'll bet your seeing a nice bump up anyway.
I've held off buying more too until the license approval is a reality. We will still have the chance to pick up cheap shares before the news is widely spread. Thus making a nice profit from our expanded FITX holdings.
Agreed. Trend on up. And up in a big way soon.
Melissa Little? I even googled her. Got a couple choices, but one of them lives in Pikeville, KY. I doubt if that's who you mean, juggsy, though KY is a pretty interesting place.
Good point, bigidea. The earlier, the better. I hope Bill explains the entire situation in as much detail he can within common business practices tomorrow. This 3+ week delay is unacceptable.
ok_right: Of the 5 responses so far, yours is the cogent. The delay of which I spoke is, in your words, due to an inherent HC process whereby the inspectors come out to a facility for an inspection, then notify the prospective grower some time later (in writing, hopefully) of the results of that inspection.
OK. I can buy that. But, why didn't Bill release a full accounting of what he (or FITX) plans to do tonight with the "partial announcement" (my description)?
Again, Bill had better release a full statement tomorrow explaining this two-step approach at what should have been a singular announcement.
I'm long and want FITX to do extremely well, but WHY a 3-and-a-half week by Bill to announce it? Doesn't make sense to me.
Even if FITX has to do some changes in selected areas, why the delay? Why not make the announcement on Friday, 8/1, with the stipulation that X-number of things were found by the HC inspectors that needed to be completed to get the license?
Something doesn't add up. Hope Bill explains ASAP tomorrow what the next steps are, and why he felt the delay was necessary.
