    Question. Is the supposed share ratio formula following the restructuring set at (- 30:1)? Somewhere in this debacle there must be an advantage or reason for the BK court to allow this venture to go through. Otherwise, it's simply a loosing battle and whoever holds the liability would have no ROI for the risk. It would only prolong the inevitable of a complete loss of all shareholder value and company cash.

    You are correct and many holders of CYTX, (retail/small hedge funds) that is, are finding this to be the case and have been posting on Stocktwits as such. There seems to be an ongoing theme of something coming that ...A) either points to BIG news of a critical Phase II,III finding or B) someone perhaps making a tender offer for this company. Could also be the later will come quickly if the first is announced. Having fallen to these lows only to have multiple analysts throw estimates anywhere from $3 to $7 usually catches many off guard hence the Squeeze and run up. One other thing, when Adam Feuerstein speaks harshly against a company like he attempted to do with Cytori months ago, they normally come out shining in the end. He plays it both ways and gets paid doing it. He's off the radar now on Cytori so look for some major news soon!

    This was more than anyone could have asked for! A beat on ER and reducing debt while maintaining future contracts while oil bounces up and down. It clearly has to sink in for those in the market and may seem minuscule but this is better than investors could have expected! They have a ridiculous law suit pending against a board member that will soon add value back to the company as well as a deferred payment due them in July! Next Q will be stellar.

  • ran.dog80 ran.dog80 May 7, 2015 10:06 AM Flag

    Correction Earnings s/b +$0.06 and still a $+$0.02 BEAT!

  • this will begin to walk up in an orderly and deserving fashion. That even surpasses the the high estimate of $0.05 , people will eventually catch on! no worries about BK here!

    HOUSTON, TX—(MARKET WIRE)—May 7, 2015 — Vantage Drilling Company (“Vantage” or the “Company”) (NYSE MKT: VTG) reports net income for the three months ended March 31, 2015 of $21.4 million or $.06 per diluted share as compared to earnings of $24.8 million or $.07 per diluted share for the three months ended March 31, 2014

  • the price. However prior to that ER just 30 day earlier they hit $0.69 on news. It's forward guidance that moves VTG tomorrow and future contracts but $0.04 is already priced in. Oil is headed higher and VTG is trading sideways $0.38 - $0.42. while SDRL, HERO, PGN keep bumping up. Management needs adjusted contracts for higher profits for this to climb. They better have ammo ready in today's volatile trading market because status quo isn't being rewarded. C'mon VTG give shareholders some news with future contracts!

    Correct, now factor in that this treatment varietal includes several skin cancer distinctions and you add to it's value. Every patient that enters a doctors office for skin evaluations diagnosed with melanoma could potentially be spared invasive surgeries with a treatment such as the one mentioned in today's news! Huge impact if it's declared "OFFICIAL" by FDA!

  • it's over I now bee bankruptcy the only hope going forward. Lawyers will sue and take most of the company value.

  • ran.dog80 ran.dog80 Feb 6, 2015 12:37 PM Flag

    I think you mean to say it's lights out for Petrobas! They could never admit the fraud so this guy gets in to add more layers to an already complicated matter. and further disguise what's been stolen!

    Shorts kill this today, watch!

  • to maintain being profitable and satisfying shareholders as public company while operating like this ,then skimming billions off the top for government officials just destroyed any credibility they had left. No one trusts Dilma now and the appointee must be someone that protects her as well. If the Brazilians find out she's holding billions of dollars while they're living in slums it's lynching time for one government official.

  • ran.dog80 ran.dog80 Feb 6, 2015 12:15 PM Flag

    If this banker is the choice by Dilma you can expect a 2-3 x current short position in remaing trading time today after announcement. Then analysts will have all the necessary ammo to fire downgrades out and suffocate any hope Brazil has going forward with this selection. Watch and learn how scandals are exposed regardless of the power big oil has. They made fools of themselves by lying and being greedy and those big institutions at $5.00 will be off loading and you'll see record volume in a single day.

    My prediction is 200+ million if they announce Bendine at Monday's open.

    MARK IT!

  • Seems Brazil is very comfortable making decisions that can destroy shareholders but keep criminal run companies protected. Anyone knows if a banker is put into the position there's a good chance that the laundered money is well hid. He would be the one coordinating it's whereabouts and have access to distribute without a trace.

    Right now I want to believe otherwise as my investment is deteriorating to ashes!

    Car Share status with Kandi vehicles

    by frankblatterman Jan 29, 2015 9:26 AM
    ran.dog80 ran.dog80 Jan 29, 2015 10:52 AM Flag

    Would love to know how the car share program works. Do customers simply walk up , check out a car get in and drive. How do they tally the ours used, taxi clock? When you were there did it seem that most the vehicles were being occupied or was the customer traffic light. It seems many are still not on board as the government is fighting big oil manufactures to change formulas for safer gas. They refuse to do so as it would cut profits. The current leadership has been unable to force them into compliance and has shown some weakness. In a communist country that's never good. Did you visit any potential factories that were scheduled to open in 2015? Any buzz on new styles of Kandi EVs? Can the government actually do enough to curb the desire from gasoline luxury cars to the less desireable EV market. I see they are trying everything to make owning EVs easy but will the people bite? I bought shares at a much higher price than today's level and HOLD firmly for some positive action by both the Chinese Government and Mr. Hu. He's been reluctant to release any forward guidance for 2015 as he normally did in past prior Q4 ER, hope it's to blow out some big #s and kill shorts who are desperate to get more short shares. This is leading up to one big BANG! I'm in Vegas to, live here, enjoy the cool weather and rain it's rare in these parts!

  • Zhejiang issues historic blue smog alert over severe air pollution

    Read more on Zhejiang air pollution Ningbo air pollution
    The Zhejiang Environmental Protection Office issued a blue smog alert yesterday for the first time in the history of the province as severe air pollution persisted for seven days.

    Air quality index (AQI) collected in the Qiandao Lake area, west of Hangzhou, reached 267 micrograms per cubic meter at 8pm yesterday. Visibility in central and northern Zhejiang dropped to about 1,000 meters and to 400 meters in some places.

    The Hangzhou Urban Management Commission asked sanitation teams to spray more water on roads and to control dust pollution at construction sites.

    Authorities asked children and seniors to reduce outdoor activities and urged people to take public transport as much as possible to cut car emissions.

    Severe air pollution was also reported in Huzhou, Ningbo, Shaoxing, Jinhua, Quzhou, Taizhou and Wenzhou across the province as their AQI ranged from 201 to 300.

    But a cold front is coming from the north and is expected to disperse the smog today. Sleet and light snow are expected in the mountainous areas of Zhejiang tonight. Tomorrow will be colder and have drizzle.

  • Kandi’s plan is to build with both Government and “outside” support, 750 of these garages in just the City of Hangzhou over the next four years through a 50-50 joint venture with Geely Automotive, China’s largest passenger automaker, which would require some 100,000 Kandi electric vehicles to stock them. This model is slated to spread to other cities and regions like Shanghai, Shandong, and Hainan. Two garages were just completed in Hangzhou over the past two months and another 18 are currently under construction as of two weeks ago.

    The only reference I can find to Chinese government buying all electric Vehicles is Kandi Technologies. Highest population per country on earth at roughly 1.35 BILLION people and Kandi a favorite is bound for success. Government switching 30% of it's current vehicle population to EVs should have Kandi going 24-7 and building new factories throughout China.

  • ran.dog80 ran.dog80 Jan 28, 2015 10:12 AM Flag

    Yes in deed, now look at what the Chinese are doing to help curve their future costs. Battery subsidies for purchasers of EVs will be another cost reduction for the vehicles they purchase. Also when the country sees they are going electric and eventually raise gas prices to unheard of levels where do think people will turn? Evs and millions of them. Kandi due to get a big piece of market share and as new plant open this year new luxury models will catch the eye of buyers. WIN WIN for investors. This Q will be a blowout as well.
