    Questiion for GreatDay...

    I also reaped the rewards of AVNR! Hope Ray is reading and adhereing to your suggestion to invest in CERS so he can make back what he lost! Actually even Martin Shrkeli was anti AVNR and sad that as a young tad would not have had to do what he did to his companies if he had just bought in as well! Even the current Administration is asking for more money to combat Zika! CERS does more then just make sure the blood supply is safe not only from Zika but many more catastrophic pathogens! Just don't need Otsuka to buy this gem on the cheap! It looks in much better shape then AVNR was though!

    Looks like you missed out on another 6+% gain at the end but hey you hopefully made a profit and that's what counts minus LTCG taxes unless you deferred it in a qualified account!

    I believe before the blood is tranfused or used it is contained by the intercept to make sure that the pathogen that could contaminate is eradicated so to speak! Once a person contracts the contaminated blood their is no stage that Cerus or anyone else can do to bring the contamination back! You can say the Intercept kit will make sure that the blood does not contain the pathogen! I'm not sure if NVAX is working on a Zika vaccine and what others may be doing but how do you totally contain or prevent it? Unfortunately their are many in the labs that are working on it daily and until we get total assurance you do as much to contain and prevent to keep the public safe! I read where this one group has developed a genetic modified mosquito that is male that cohabitates with the wild female and the offspring are pretty much exterminated, but at the present they are not extinct! I won't miss them because in Texas they are bad and not only Zika, but West Nile and manyother besides all the bites being painful. FWIW TMHO!

    As of 7:58 EST it showed the AH close at the triple nickel level or to those who are less informed, $5.55! Not to say where it opens on Monday but if you had the FDA approved device that could make sure the blood supply is safer, then as more folks find out about it and it's making lots of news for many to peruse, then it could be headed much higher! Granted they have lots more to work through but I feel that the folks who are working with them, then they could climb to a figure that will make it harder for a hostile takeover to take it on the cheap! With the kits which just once and covered by insurance at a price of over $600, then you can see how many will be used and with 4700 cases now known in LA, then you can guess who's using it and who is subjecting patients to a pathogen that possibly could have been prevented by Cerus!

    Remember how most reacted with the Ebola case that reached a hospital in Dallas TX? Now we could have an epidemic catastrophic event with many who cross our Southern border and no check to see if they might be a carrier! Ellis Island was a checkpoint to make sure illnesses didn't come ashore and now we take it for granted that the border is open and who knows what illnesses they are bringing in and until you have a high number of deaths no alarm bells are going off! At minimum wouldn't you want someone to be checked to make sure they don't contaminate our hospitals again and no one is held responsible! Wait til an outbreak occurs and let's see who takes the fall!

  • siserv2001 siserv2001 Jan 27, 2016 8:20 PM Flag

    As we get closer to April when CERS will likely launch in Europe and it will follow a similar chart path that AVNR did as well! Let's just hope Otsuka doesn't get it on the cheap! Why $35 at a minimum would be the starting price needed to lock up an takeover and if it doesn't break by mid March then the price will be much higher! Now while the price may just hover in low double digits this summer 2017 will definitely be a time of some BIG M & A's that just don't seem to develop during a Presidential election year.

    FEYE - We've struck oil !!!

    Wedbush has their attack dogs all out on stocks that looked poised to move higher with their downgrade this morning and how do they justify unless they did not like the latest acquisition or are holding this down for their short friends! I think they are mad that oil hovering around $30 and they think the market is tied to the price of black gold! Have they really made a buy recommendation lately in any sector?

    CERS is moving up on volume

    Institutions owned 70% o AVNR and Otsuka came in and paid $17 to shareholders to bu it. It's not as big or diverse as CERS but T Rowe Price was a large holder and they were convinced to take the deal! So they all have their objectives as well and while they made out well most still felt they could have made more but 400% is hard to turn down as a return! If CERS was a slam dunk then the price would go to double digits and not look back! Options seem to be one factor and with one buyer selling puts which are bullish at $5 keeps a stock range bound until that option expires when it's that large. Why Great seems afraid that we want get what we think it's worth even though it's much higher then it is now! Just need to keep getting into more hospitals and preventing these pathogens fromcontaminating the blood supply. The Red Blood Cells is a Billion dollar industry and CERS will benefit greatly when that happens but a takeover could get us less then what most have sentiments it could get!

    Let's just hope we get more then $17 if it happens! BTW Have you heard of this measles outbreak in the Plano TX ISD? Theiris a five percent chance you can get measles even being vaccinated and they have a high number who have not been either by having parental waivers or whatever but this outbreak is serious. Now compared to a blood contamination outbreak? Folks are just too complascent!

    I bought more today as well! Would love to accumulate like my AVNR shares many even bought below 2 and all below $5.85 and all sold at $17! Even tested some calls at $17 and they expired in January and then Otsuka bought me out at $17! It was not as healthy as CERS and so expecting much more and they may not even sell to another large pharma but each kit is now insurance paid and used once! Glad the market helped my fills and the shorts will need to cover at a much higher price! Many lost their shirt and more listening to the bashers on the AVNR message board and who knows what ever happened to Ray and others who shouted short at $5 and it went to $17 in less then a year! I guess they need a small paycheck from whoever is advocating them to use this message board like talking to a financial advisor or looking at all the analyst viewpoints who have a much higher target for CERS and most don't included the latest news so new targets are going to be making news SHORTly!

    Merry Christmas to you great! What a great year with AVNR and now CERS among many! My big value sells were AMZN and HD! Still hold a little HD but what a ride! Holding my FB and the ones I shorted just faded although CSCO may be one to keep an eye on! I was hedging my FEYE! LOL! Got greedy on trying to short FEYE and while I think they will hopefully figure it out! Own a few more bio's and 2016 should be a greater M & A year, I know I'm blessed to have winners and a few losers but overall 2015 was a special investment year and hope that 2016 is even better! Glad I sold my GPRO in the $80's! Short term play and yeah sometimes we get lucky! Also wish I had bought more FB but alas we can't have it all! GO CERS!

    I sold just a small portion into strength but I bought it for under $1.25! So to make 100% gain, I allowed Avi to add to his next bonus!

    I owned AVNR as well and yeah it should have been closer to $25 then $17 but I guess I'm being greedy and I'm sure Keith is suffering from selling it on the cheap! What's funny is I atually had sold some $17 calls expiring in Jan 2015 and amazingly that is the price Otsuka snapped it up at! Anyhow would have loved to have got 10K shares of CERS when I saw the oversold signal at $4.25 and got filled for a few and then they got the partnership with HAE and approval in Brazil and Mongolia and it shot up nicely! Bought all the way up to $5.88 but missed and perhaps with the overall market getting slammed today I might be able to snap up some more! Triple digit loss expected right now before market open and who knows how it will finish! Scrooge is happy and we are trying to find Santa to rally the troops!
