I'm curious, there seems to be at least one of your type on every single message board, you jump into a stock and then you exit just as fast with a loss, many people do this, but then there is always the one or two that hold a grudge for their loss and want to hang on and remain a real p.i.t.a to others that are hanging in there ?
The vast majority accept their losses and move on, but then there's your type.
Is it a personality defect or something ?
And you all do the same exact thing, you have to give us a blow by blow of what the stock is doing......when it is a negative, but then all of a sudden when things turn positive you clam up and vacate the scene ?
In case you are not aware of what goes on beyond your scope of things.....we all also have a source for quotes , news etc..
Like I told you in a previous post........some of us are looking beyond the end of our nose.
Ten years ago I had ISRG stock, and there also were your ilk on that message board, they're always there on every message board, the mental defectives. Something is missing in their lives.
Oh I didn't say he wasn't stupid, but stupid or not I've seen his type many times before, his redundant #$%$ is like you are reading something emanating from an echo chamber, and it piles up.
He's probably out on a ledge someplace, and there's a crowd of people down there hollering....JUMP JUMP JUMP !
In between his rants here.
And those two guys in the white outfits down there in the crowd......they ain't the Good Humor Ice Cream men.
I even heard The Price Is Right guy Bob Barker goes to these events, and he joins in with his.......COME ON DOWN !
Well his telling comment was......"but anyone with half a brain knew that was #$%$".
He is qualifying himself for his opinion, because as he put it , all is needed is a "half a brain" ....requirement.
And the profanity bolsters his point, he's got the half a brain needed to work for this firm and shoot out some cussing opinions.
Probably was doing a little snorting as he was writing.
I have had at least a half dozen stocks over the years that were involved in class action lawsuits, and every one of them were covered by insurance. Companies carry insurance for these types of situations.
But do you think post Nov 21, 2013 the STXS world ends ?
Can you even try and use just a scintilla of imagination and realize where STXS can go to ?
Don't sweat the very small (s)hit......look PAST Nov 21,2013.
Look at STXS as an INVESTMENT, not a hand of BLACKJACK !
Think about it for just a second. Almost 20 MILLION shares traded so far, and two hours left to go.......and only down 46 CENTS ?
People.....that is ACCUMULATION taking place right now , plain and simple.
Oh I almost forgot the important part........I quadrupled up on this blip down.
The Japan deal makes STXS ridiculously undervalued now........everybody knows quality merchandise comes from Japan.....so if what STXS has is good enough for them.........now the WORLD is next up.
Plain old common sense.
Does this shareholder rights offering shake your faith in the underlying company's prospects or not?
In my own personal case, ten years ago I had ISRG stock at $9.50, and at that time there was much negative and positive discussion on these message boards concerning ISRG, constant back and forth. I tired of that and sold, but I did make $3,500 profit and thought I was pretty smart.
Over the years I was constantly reminded by ISRG's stock price just how smart I was not, I know I know you don't go broke taking a profit. But every once in awhile you come across a life changing stock, right or wrong I see some similar prospects here in STXS as I saw in ISRG years ago.
Only time will tell, and this time I'm going to give it that time.
If you don't have the faith in the underlying company, sell it, if you do have the faith just ignore, or at least try to ignore the noise. These are bumps in the road that come along with each and every stock.
Under a pile of distracting nonsense, so no meaningful positive discussion can go on.
This is a practice on many boards by stock bashers, believe it or not it discourages new buyers of the stock when they see this.
The bashers actually most of the time want the stock.....just at a lower price.
I guess the CEO noticed what you were saying about it taking a lot of guts to hold 10K of PACB.....and went and bought 20 times as much.
So I wonder if it was guts.......or .....he just knows something.....you don't?
Do ya think that's possible?
ryanstarxx Don't waste time with this guy, he obviously does not know about the rights received to pre Nov 1 holders.
A Johnny come lately that now has all the answers.
Then insults your intelligence telling you they are long the stock?
I have seen this on other message boards, then once in awhile they slip up and let it be known that they actually were long.....for a very short period, tried to daytrade, then got caught leaning the wrong way and got picked off (sold) with a quick loss.....and now have a vendetta against the stock, it's the stocks fault.
Who the hell bashes their own stock ?
Yes sir, we is all real dummies.
When STXS only has 11 Million share float.......how much does the basher think they could have possibly got more than 10 Million ?
Show me the math on that one please.
Considering they only have a float of 11 Million shares and it took 3 rights to buy 1 share, 10 Million sounds pretty damn good to me.
That means there was a lot of holders excercising those rights.
I'm wondering if it was individual holders, or institutions ?
Or a large position wanted to be acquired without doing it trading on the open market ?
This would guarantee a set price without daily buying bits and pieces, and possibly driving the price higher while doing so?
A large buyer could have done it by buying all those STXSR and then excercising them.
Kind of interesting, I'm going to live and learn from this one.
Experience is the best teacher.
"The real worry here is he might be overconfident about this company and his own capability"
"The real worry here"?
Who has that "real worry here" ?
he might be overconfident "his own capability"?
If you are long PACB (which I doubt) do a search on Dr. Michael W Hunkapiller , and then come back here........and question his capabilities.
Kinda get a clue, before you even think of putting a question mark anywhere near this man's capabilities.
I'd very much like to see, how many companies you can find, whose stock is in this price range.....with this man's qualities.
Nickel and dime daytraders couldn't care less if GERN could make gold from cow dung, they want that quick nickel or dime. This Mayo Clinic news couldn't be better. And don't forget it's not yet widespread news.
Just wait and see the reaction when it is.
darnstockmarket60.....You are totally missing the point here, the weak hands are being shook out of the stock, EVERYBODY is/was expecting the stock to blast off on this positive news.......the QUICKEST and BEST way to get in at a cheaper price is to somehow thwart the blast-off........then you will see the LEMMINGS go over the cliff.......and the ACCUMULATORS are right there to gather up what they want.
When EVERYBODY is expecting something.......most of the time you can pretty much expect the opposite to happen.
They are NOT going to shake this tree forever, if you are a daytrader then I can understand your frustration, if you are looking at the BIGGER picture then just sit tight.
7/11/13 RMTI Made a triple top break-out, on the P&F (Point & Figure) Chart the Preliminary Bullish Price Objective is $20.25.
I used to be able to post the link.....not anymore.
This same EXACT thing happened the end of August .......EXACTLY !
Then in the NEXT few days STXS took off to $11.
Go look at the chart.
They did the whipsaw by going down the line taking out the stop loss orders.
I NEVER use a stop loss order .....NEVER !
However many shares you hold........DIVIDE that by 1/3rd........that amount of shares is how many you will have the option to buy at THREE DOLLARS A SHARE !
If you have 30,000 shares......that qualifies you to buy 10,000 shares at $3 per share.
REGARDLESS of the current selling price........per WHOLE share!
I'm wondering if these posters that are supposedly "confused" are really just shorts.......doing their thing?
You can buy the STXSR that trades now, but those are not what you will be able to trade into the $3 STXS shares, the only eligible ones will be the ones issued to those that had STXS before Oct 31.
The STXSR is like buying a penny stock that will not expire at Nov 21 like the ones issued to those getting issued the rights. STXSR will just continue to track the price of STXS post NOV 21.
It would be real nice if we could just buy the STXSR and trade it in for STXS at $3 haha..
