    I contacted Investor Relations about 3 weeks ago and asked the very same question........

    Here is what I got in response.......

    Becker Drapkin is a VALUE oriented activist investor fund. They had a VERY LOW cost basis on their shares and felt that they were NOT going to be able to influence the Board or the company to sell itself off.......to Apple or to any other company......

    I was told their cost basis on their shares was close to $2 a share........so selling at $7.80 made a GREAT rate of return on their shares........so they took it off the table.

    There WAS NOT any ill will between them and the company........and they didn't KNOW anything negative about our technology or about any business relationship that Pixelworks was engaged with.

    They are simply VALUE oriented and felt that a 300 percent return was very satisfactory and simply took the money and ran...........

    "THE" Article

    An important fact to remember with CUR is.....they didn't FAKE patient results........unlike the identities of the authors of certain stories that were published in Seeking Alpha.....that it looks like Smith himself created.....no one " created " APRIL or TED .

    These are real people with real positive stories that occurred following treatment...........which is probably why our stock dive has stopped at $3.40 .

    And I also highly doubt that it that George Soros.....the smartest investor on the planet.....aside from Buffet......made an investment decision to buy CUR based on anything that SMITH may have written....or based on anything that these FAKE authors may have penned.

    You CANT fake patient results........the science works and in the end that will be recognized and the stock and the company will recover from this damaging setback.........truth is, the science behind this company probably didn't even need SMITH's support.......in the first place !

    Why deal with the FDA

    You earn Top Honors for being the Biggest Jackass on this message board Imamisantrope !!!!!!!

    Congrats.....a reward rightly deserved by you alone.

    In your haste to wrongly condemn others......you fail to realize that Adam Smith had no idea that the current FDA process would become so entangled with additional layers of RED TAPE.......that people were dying in droves because they couldn't get access to the very drugs that the FDA was making so difficult to get approved.

    Yes.....they stop some bad drugs from coming to market........while allowing THOUSANDS of People to DIE.....waiting for other drugs to get approved !!!!!

    Watch Dallas Buyers Club 100 times until you get the message that the FDA isn't working in our BEST INTERESTS all of the time.........congrats on you being the Biggest Idiot yourself for believing in such !!!!

    Bwhahahahahahahahahahahah !!!!!!

    SEC 4

    quicktwosmile quicktwosmile Jul 5, 2014 10:18 AM Flag

    But on a SECOND look......the Form 4 shows the price paid as 0, so this appears to be a Stock Grant instead of an outright purchase........

    Which is a BIG difference.........thus it is presumed they paid nothing for the stock......thus it may not be bullish at all.........just free stock to the officers getting the grant.......

    Further thoughts........?

    Am I seeing this wrong.........??

    Insiders buying stock close to a company's yearly high is EXTREMELY BULLISH.......that's textbook Investing 101 ..........

    There isn't a stronger message that a company send other than insiders buying close to a company's yearly high. Jim Cramer has expanded on this theory many times On Air on CNBC..........so I am holding into this quarter and beyond......

    Has Randy Harl missed estimates in the past Sure he has.......but lets NOT use the past to try and predict the future........because sometimes that theory doesn't always work.........

    It seems that the management shakeup and new positions were created to manage Growth that is coming.......and the insiders buying shares here close to the stocks HIGH says........we see better things coming down the pike than what Wall Street is giving us credit for .

    Nothing speaks louder than insiders spending THEIR OWN CASH to buy shares......even close to the stocks YEARLY HIGH ........

    We should be in the TEENS after this next earnings report.

    I am seeing it too.......maybe some news will break in the next few hours......

    I thought when the first trade went thru it was a mistimed trade from earlier in the day.......but now seeing multiple trades in AH........so something is up.

    Its only 11:30 am back on the West Coast where they are located......so maybe we see a news story by the end of the day.....

    57-61million in Rev is a guide down from the 60-63m that was expected !

  • They are pulling in EPS and revenue numbers for next Q.....

    The STEM case is HARDLY a "given outcome".

    It could either way.....and even if stem wins......CUR royalty payments could be so small as to not matter .

  • There are a ton of shorts in this name......exactly 8,108,200 shares are short.

    For biotech stocks that can literally DOUBLE overnight shorting a $4 stock with huge promise seems like
    a crazy thing to do.......being short a $4 stock limits your potential gain but exposes you to Huge risks if the stock should take off after releasing promising results !!!!!

    Yes......good news.

    This might make the ALS drug small potatoes in terms of revenue .

    That quack is a hard one to figure out.

    I watched him make a complete fool out of himself over on the CAMP board a couple of years ago. He badmouthed the management when the stock was single digits......always complaining how the stock dropped after a investor conference was given.

    Meanwhile the stock went from 3 to 33 .........now I wish I would have gotten that full ride.....but I cashed out to buy a home......and to get into WG at $7.23

    Looks like he loves to complain and #$%$.....and say bad things about ALL the companies he buys.... I think maybe he thinks, that he #$%$ will take shares higher .........if so let the wimp #$%$ ALL HE WANTS......cause the shares seem to move higher.......the more he #$%$.

    Weird yes.......I know........but if its works........#$%$ on Spandex.....#$%$ on !!!

    Moody's

    Just like we talked about.........

    Blue sky from here on out............

    We are above the 52 week high..........so no more trapped investors looking to break even........just those who want to step off of this train cause they made enough money........

    I think I will ride this train a bit longer..........the blue sky view is amazing from up here .......

  • quicktwosmile quicktwosmile Jun 12, 2014 10:06 AM Flag

    Yo Billy my good man........

    Can you pass me a little Grey Poupon ........?

    WG just made a new 52 week high...............and I think I need to improve my eating habits !!!!

    #$%$ NICE !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • WG has made a NEW 52 week high this morning as it was at the center of a recent Moody's article outlining the winner's and losers of the energy upgrade cycle that is currently occurring here in North America......

    In the article Moody's stated.........

    "" Among Moody's-rated companies, Willbros will draw the most immediate benefit from oil and gas sector strength, Corelli says. Willbros's Canada segment, which provides services to the oil sands industry, has produced strong operating results, while the company has also reduced losses in its oil and gas segment. Moody's expects Willbros to produce substantially improved results this year, with earnings of about $135 million, compared with $118 billion last year.

    Of course the last line incudes a typo....please change 118 Billion.....to 118 Million .........

    Moody's isn't perfect.........

    WG last seen going thru the roof trading at $13.30 ........

  • PR Newswires.........June 10.2014

    In complete disrespect of Spandex's misguided investment thesis concerning Willbros, the stock climbed higher today against the backdrop of a very negative market that saw the Dow Jones Industrial down 102 points to 16,843 and the Nasdaq down points to 4331.

    With all the negative sentiment in the markets today Willbros climbed 1.32% reaching its 52 week high level by closing out at $13.07 .

    The stock has shown tremendous relative strength as of late........laughing in the face of its critical shareholder Spandex who has had a multitude of negative comments of late that has no effect on the stock at all.

    Collectively, the market is really laughing in the face of Spandex by pricing into the shares the company's improving forward prospects........whereby Spandex is wrongly choosing to focus on events of the past.......

    Join us tomorrow.....where all we stand by and see if WG makes a NEW yearly high by moving even futher higher as more and more investors realize the improving prospects on the horizon for this undiscovered gem.....

    Dude,

    OMG......this was too #$%$ funny

    "" While you still have to take your socks off to count to twenty "

    ROTFLMAO !!!!

    I agree with you Billy......a ton of management moves......a ton.

    Something big in the works OR a massive shift to the upside seen coming down the pike...........otherwise why the hell bother with all these moves.

    Clearly WG is getting ready for a new level of business or a new operating environment....

    There aren't doing this because HR has too much time on their hands.....something is up.

    Span Jack Off,

    Dude - WE ARE NOT THE SAME PERSON........

    Check my ID........I have been on the CAMP message board for a DECADE.........and read your stupid rants about management....for months..........bought WG after your bitchen.......and its made me bank.

    Billy and I BITH agree that you are a very stupid investor.....but we are not the same person........

    His knowledge of this company......exceeds mine and YOUR ability.....cause you LOSE every time you into a fight with him .....anf yes the stock price IS the deciding factor.......

    Its clearly going up and you tried to get cute by WRONGLY selling calls at a low strike.......and got left behind !

    You focus too much in the past and complain too much about things that happened YESTERDAY..........that's why you are MISSING a lot of this move.......you sold a ton of shares way too early !
