  • "PENDING HOME SALES reach 5 YEAR HIGH"

    How does this affect ENTR?
    Indirectly, but this is an EXTREME POSITIVE for the company. Right now, the cable company's (who are one in the same as 90% of the internet service providers in this country) are in a mad dash to entice their customers into UPGRADING their analogue devices. In fact, they're offering all kinds of incentives to motivate existing analog STB owners to upgrade free of charge to new DVR's that have a greater storage capacity and a plethora of new connectivity advantages ie. smartphones, tablets etc. Well guess who's behind all of THAT technology? There are only two real players BRCM and ENTR. In yesterdays presentation, we learned that cable company's are eager to make these transitions happen as quickly as possible for the little know fact that digital takes up 4x LESS bandwidth than analog does. That being said, what do we know about moving? What's the first people take care of when they move into a new home? They get the telephone hooked up and....??? Yep!

    **** KEY TAKEAWAY HERE: Digital takes up 4x LESS bandwidth than analog does!!! Meaning that the motive and the momentum are all lining up to form a massive Rogue Wave Tsunami that's going to take ENTR into the 20's and beyond. Patrick Henry's TRIDENT and ZENVERGE acquisitions are beginning to look like the genius moves of the decade! THANK GOD C0MCAzT "GET'S IT" !

    I think he's referring to me when he says "dreaded scot farker", if so, go back and read my post. I was advocating at 22.00 per share. I think you know this, you just like to spread lies here. I made around 50% in 6 months or so. Not bad, no apology here.

    Finding From "CT Order" Large Sample Size

    by stockmanjohn94 Oct 22, 2012 12:29 PM
    sograteez sograteez Oct 22, 2012 1:42 PM Flag

    Interesting stuff stockmanjohn, and thank you for tweaking my curiosity.

    There's a large and well documented (doctoral?) thesis by a woman out of Texas named Ann Thompson whose work examines the incidence of CT requests and the inferences and/or implications if any, based upon the time to approval and likelihood of approval based upon reasonable motive. I think you'll find the following excerpt encouraging in the case of the ENTR request:

    *1
    - " Overall, these findings indicate that the SEC‘s decisions to apply greater scrutiny or comment on a firm‘s application for confidential treatment have little association with the nature of product market competition or proprietary costs faced by the registrant. These findings suggest that firms do not request confidential treatment unless they meet the criteria for competitive harm. These findings are also consistent with Dedman and Lennox (2009) who find that managers‘ perceptions of proprietary costs are uncorrelated with conventional measures of proprietary costs and barriers to entry. Overall, I find little support for Hypothesis 1b. Taken together, these findings suggest that the SEC applies greater scrutiny to firms with objective and observable warnings signs and not to firms with measures of low financial reporting quality that are more difficult for the public to identify.?"

    The above would indicate to me that in all likelihood, Entropic management did NOT ask for the court's permission to hide certain confidential information with the intention of hiding a negative issue from investors, rather, the reasons stated above, in order to prevent competitive DISADVANTAGE if disclosed. As this CT order was issued by the court and in a timely manner, I think it would be safe to assume that ENTR has at worst, an even playing field with a bigger rival and at best, a competitive ADVANTAGE over their rivals in the Moca 2 environment.

    Way to go dypsheeet. You just MADE the guy's point and did so even more emphatically. He said the stock did go up 1000% percent but he never mentioned from where. The idea that it should go up 3000% without a product, without a completed trial, without FDA endorsements, without a marketing partner, without a copyright challenge under our belts (yes, they will come). I think he makes his point quite well, and you become the idiot he's trying to paint you as. I don't know why you guys go up against intellect with humor all of the time. You only wind up with egg on your faces.

    Attention all Shorts:

    sograteez sograteez Sep 5, 2012 4:04 PM Flag

    ABSOLUTELY RIGHT GUYS. These bozos wasted a FORTUNE today trying to squeeze the longs and what has it gotten them? An even BIGGER short position when that is ABSOLUTELY the WRONG SIDE OF THIS TRADE. WE ARE IN AN UPTREND IN EARNINGS, REVENUE, SHAREPRICE on a SHORT, MEDIUM and LONGTERM basis. What about "COVER" don't you #$%$s get. The short game ended 2 months ago. The fact that you missed it is nobody's fault but your own. Throwing money on the bid won't fix it, truth is all you're doing is kicking your misery down the road. Don't worry, it'll be back to bite you in the posterior tomorrow morning and every morning for the next 18-36 months save the weekends and holidays. Time to "man up".

  • Rumor has it that the delay referenced in the article below is a direct result of AUDC's technology (backed by Patent law in the US)having trounced APKT's voice over LTE upcoming offering. OUCH!
    But what's bad for APKT just may be AUDC's saving grace:

    "CEO Michael Tardugno predicted the company's ThermoDox liver cancer treatment could be a "$1 billion drug."

    - and that would be the income from just ONE of the applications for our drug delivery "device". The possibilities are endless.

    Institutional Ownership

    by ukiwis Jun 30, 2012 3:23 PM
    sograteez sograteez Jun 30, 2012 4:19 PM Flag

    Yes, and you should probably know this, but just in case your question is legitimate, the reason our institutional ownership sits at roughly 10% is because for the most part, this company has had a market cap of less than 100 million. Few institutions allow their funds to be placed in a company with a market cap so small, save the small and microcap funds out there. The correct "take" on this in my view is; there is PLENTY of room for new owners as the stock climbs. Street exposure along with share valuation is hardly what one could call "tapped out". In short it's small because Celsion is still small - but that appears to be changing. One more investment by a big fund could drive this stock into the double digits in a heartbeat. Hold on to your shares.

  • Surely Judge Ilston recognizes the gravity of the crime going on here. It isn't just a matter of a legal "dispute". These companies are breaking the law. To NOT grant an injunction gives credence to the notion; Sequenom does all of the work, and our imitators get to rake in FREE profits after a relatively small expenditure of "reverse engineering" our test and make inconsequential innovations that allow them to apply for separate patent. The T21 was over a decade in the making. Our would be saboteur's haste in doing so, belies their true motive; they are THEIVES who wish to steal as much as they possibly can as FAST as they can (before they get shut down or the market is commoditized by others following suit).

    It will be a VERY SAD DAY IN AMERICA if the law is interpreted in favor of ARIOSA and VERINATA. I do not and cannot believe this will happen. No true jurist would want this as her legacy. IP protection is the cornerstone of Free Enterprise in the Western World and Japan.

    Once upon a time there was a "Lake" known for it's plentiful bounty of fish. A veritable "fisherman's paradise" as they called it. Folks could drop a hook or troll with a lure on a line and fish for their evening meal.Some fished just for the fun of it, a few could even make their living if they got up early, catching enough fish to sell at the local fish market. Then one day everything changed. It seems that a new way of catching fish had emerged, it was vastly superior and produced fantastic results; These new folks started stretching a net all the way across the lake and waiting for the current to ensnare fish by the thousands, whereupon they were hauled in by the boatloads and sold to whoever would offer them the best price. There were too many fish for the local fish market, they couldn't begin to sell as many fish as were brought to them each day. No problem, these new fishermen created a new venue for their catch.They would pile the fish up for a week, no need to refrigerate, then each weekend they would haul their weeks catch to the next county where they had set up a "fertilizer factory". The "fertilizer factory" took as many rotting fish as they could get their hands on for .10c on the dollar. But finally, as all trends do, this trend ended. A new breed came to town. They used COMPUTERS with fancy algorithms to cleverly devise and construct a number of "tributary" rivers to , divert, choke off and drain the lake of every last drop. At this point they, and their best friends "harvested" every last fish in the lake -until there were no more fish to take. They NEVER refilled the lake. Why bother, there were no fish LEFT in it anyway.

    THE END.


    Just kidding.

    One day, some rich people moved to town. They were looking for some land to build a big estate. They bought the dry lake bed, refilled it with water and some genetically engineered fish, and there on it's shores, they built a massive and beautiful private estate. They had plenty of cheap labor too! It seems there were hundreds of unemployed fishermen.

    The fish became more plentiful than ever, but no longer available to the public.

    There is no moral to this story.

  • For those who have the stomach for it. Leverage is leverage.

  • What a GIFT! I must give a shout out and a big THANK YOU to the person who sold me their shares. (keep in mind, I will be nominating you fools for this years stock market "DARWIN AWARD"). Congratulations KNUCKLEADS!!

  • I am 100% confident that ANY judge in his right mind of average intelligence or greater will find in favor of Sequenom and order Aria to cease and desist in their patent violating prenatal diagnostic tests. It's almost an insult to the entire system that this was allowed to get so far, yet this is how our legal system operates. On the brighter side, what we've got here is the equivalent of expert testimony educating us as to the veracity of the claims made and absolute clarity in defending such. READ; I will buy as much as I can, as often as I can until this case has been decided. At that point I will decide how and where I choose to retire, likely within 6 months following the order for injunction (hearing in June).

    Wrong Mstevens. Is this how you get your jollies? Posting non stop accusations all of the Yahoo message boards accusing people of having more than one ID? Good luck with that genius. Now, as for the poster who doesn't understand my previous post, there's little I can do about it. Either you don't want to understand or your not capable of understanding. In either case I won't be responding on this subject further.
