    What time table are you hearing when Brig will receive an CE Mark and final approval from the FDA? I know it is outperforming in test results the drug from that the Big Pharma's already have approved. Guess they are trying to get the best results fromthe MG levels and the side effects it could or may cause. Looks like they are doing some similar things that AVNR did in not going all in on Europe but using the case from Incyte to get the Brig to approval and while you likely have current buyout snippets, I think Dr Denner is taking that as his lowest bid and he has a caveat just in case someone offers him more then he thinks the company could generate with two top tier drugs! A price plus a prestigious seat on the Big Pharma board and he may just get his quill sharpened to sign it away! I'm sure a half dozen have their sights on it and let's see who is serious to step up and WOW Dr. Denner! Great numbers today and ust on this news could push the stock to the resistance level of double digits! Keep your eyes on the options and if someone is adding significantly after Brig is approved. No brainer in my estimation!

    Stephan Curry of the Golden State Warriors just had platelet enriched plasma for his knee injury! Do you think if he had known he could contract a pathogen during the procedure he would have done it? Nice to know CERS keeps the blood supply free from pathogens and any other contaminates to make sure that the procedures have one less worry to be concerned about! Hate May and wish it to go away! I understand with taxes and elections that folks are looking for capital to invest wisely and not sqander! Easier said then done!

    They lost $6M on a bad equity investment in Q1??

    The strong dollar versus the Euro hurt their outcome! I expect even while they had insurance covering the kits for three months it takes awhile for the cash to funnel in from the companies that reimburse CERS! In another quarter I expect to see a trend where revenues will start spiking upward and let's see if they can get close to $10M in the 2Q That would drive the stock price into the $8-$10 range unless the dollar continues on it's strong path versus the Euro and then you need to see if they get closer to the path where the CEO said he could give better guidence asto where CERS is headed. The CE mark is also getting closer and the stock could double if all outcomes are positive. Still strong with $96M in cash and would like to see it get back over $100M although the margins would have to be much higher then the 44% margin in this past quarter. Close to 50 and that's hard to accomplish in this type of volatile market. I don't think they will be targeted this early for an buyout but once the CE mark and the EU RBC get's closer they will have the large pharmas pressuring them to sell. Alot of unknowns at present which cause the shorts to exploit and scare newbie investors to sell their shares to them. Will be interested to see how the institutions disclose how much they own and wait for the expected news. I will be a buyer of more if it falls below $6!

    Today a new case involving a Denton County woman who was diagnoised with Zika and that County borders Dallas County and while they may be talking about the mosquito, the blood supply is what has to be the nation's priority with a transfusion taking place in the US every two seconds whether it's an emergency from a hail storm in bordering Collin County or accidents that make it a priority. If you don't understand it then it's not a priority with you and hope you stay well and never have the need for it! But there are other concerns besides Zika that could affect the blood supply! If there is a company that protects us from the pathogens and other blood contaminates then CERS has the kit that allows you nto feel like the concerns have been screened and you don't have to worry that somehow the blood center didn't take the necessary steps of preventing it! Enjoy and be safe out there!

    All depends on the merger agreement but Otsuka which bought AVNR paid the shareholders $17 in cash! I actually had some Jan calls at $17 and at the time they expired and I got to keep the shares and then they paid for all my shares $17! Was thinking before the merger AVNR would fetch $25 but I was happy since I had been accumulating at various times and Keith Katkin the CEO had sold some back in 2010 what was then a 52 week high and many were bitter since they needed cash and they had two drugs, Neudexta which they wanted to name Zenvia but the FDA disallowed that name and the other was Abreva which is on all the drug stores items for cold sore! They also partner with Merck and many thought that was the European connection for Neudexta but in the end once AVNR received FDA approval for it the Japanese pharma stepped up and made the all cash offer! I've only owned one better unless you want to compare some of my value stocks which have kept me very happy. Will be interesting to see if Cerus can generate lots on the European deal and with all the American blood center deals I would have thought this stock would climb to over $8 but guess they burned too many bridges before approval for the Intercept kits and while the Big Boys own 70% of all shares outstanding, someone knows what it will take to get to Great's numbers! Just because they have it the margins and revenues have to show CERS is for real this time and some Big Pharma will likely offer high $20's to $30's and we likely want see Great's optimistic $100+! I could definitely retire if it were to happen but will be realistic! Rome wasn't built in a day and I have have to quote Shakespeare, Patience is a virtue!

    They didn't cover AVNR and Adam Fernstein lost not only his butt shorting the stock buthis credibility! AVNR was at $5 and did a private placement for Baker Brothers in all liklihood and the stock was bought by Otsuka Pharmaceuticals for $17! The shorts owned alot simply because they failed to cover. I'm not so sure CERS needs to do a private placement since they have well over $100M in cash and their Intercept kits are used once and are covered by insurance as of January this year. All the large blood centers are on board and their is plenty of more news that is less then two years away! One great news item generally will run it up $1 and this stock should be over $10 unless a takeover is being set up and this would likely get $20 on the low end and at present $30 on the high end but as get closer to other events that generate revenues that price goes higher!

    Nice News - 1.7 Million shares @ 2.85

    Amazin9999, Looks like they were positioning to acquire Magnum and change their name at a cost of @$55M and that was using $35M in cash and adding 7.1M more shares. Now it's supposed to be accretive and that's all good but will it get the stock price over $5. Avi will likely pay himself another big bonus and the shareholders will be hoping! Anyhow GigPeak will be luring investors telling us the stock is a TSLA! Be careful with your investing dollars! You will be paying more for fastfood in CA since the Governor thinks workers deserve $15 to flip them! Let's see the Dust Bowl grandkiddies move back East! Take it easy and learn to make more money!

    I know it's very competative in Texas with Burger and Chicken restaurants but with some CA corporate headquarters moving to the Lone Star State, I know they are building in Virginia but I think they could make it in Houston, DFW, San Antonio, and Austin! A great burger is always welcome!
