Fire the entire top management team. Stop all r&d and simply become a holding company for the ever growing nipt licensing fees. Let our partners do the work and let the shareholders stop paying top management for their 8 year track record of failure. That would have put this company solidly in the black 2 years ago and its even more true now.
Oh yeah right, that's management saavy we all want to pile our hard earned dollars behind.
There have been few betrayals larger than this one on Wall St this year - yet its gotten such little attention.
What a joke you pumptards are!
We had to let the news "digest" today. We should be seeing a renewed uptrend beginning within a few hours.
The truth is that the real catalyst here is, was and always has been the decision by the USPSTF rating board. The earnings and guidance re affirmed existing beliefs that this company is on track and succeeding at expanding the adoption of CG by doctors and patients in the US. In my view, the move down today is just the ritual shaking of the tree during the in between catalysts interim -by longs and shorts alike in hopes of harvesting the low hanging fruit. While I wouldn't rule out a retest of the 21 area should we fail to get even a "B" rating, I don't expect much more of a pullback at this time. I welcome this as a buying opportunity as I also would welcome anything lower too. 25 would be a dream come true just before USPSTF!
Why are you encouraging her? Nobody on this board needs or wants her banal input.
Right, except in the case of PPO's - the type of organization the majority of Americans are covered under. Under the PPO framework, the primary care physician is mostly one of intake and referrals. You may be a bit naive about this, but the "in network" GI doctor is very much in the loop as a protected entity. (and you can bet, the PC doctor knows which side of his bread is buttered in this regard). Kick backs are illegal, but lavish "thank you "gifts" at Christmas time are part and parcel to what plagues this inept, half-a$$ed approach to socialized medicine that we are seeing and experiencing in today's prevalent standard of care.
If you're addressing me with that statement, then you're dumber than I thought.
Keep up the "good work" cheerleader...lol
Thank you for validating my concerns with your eloquent response senior. Apparently some of the simpler minds on this thread which to attack me with vitriol and mindless rhetoric and in one case, (ssteph and scorekeep not the brightest bulbs in this room), outright lies. I appreciate your candor and decency.

senior, you seem to be a wise old man but you've forgotten how the real world works. Without the backing of gastroenterologists (who make a fortune on colonoscopies each year), the battle for CG will be hard fought. If the "advantages" are touted, you prey upon and validate their fears of losing a long held lucrative portion of their business - a portion they don't want to lose. This is precisely why management stays off topic on this point - it's counter productive. The last thing you want to do is alienate them. Hence, CG is being touted as an "adjunct" to Colonoscopy which it also is. Are you sure you're not just a young lady as I suspect?
I would be more than happy to see them prove the fearful recent longs wrong. As I said, I am a long here but only in a small way. Im just hoping I don't have to hit the sell button
Im afraid you may be right your pessimism Cr@ppie, this isn't what I wish, but what I fear. This management team burned a lot of folks last time and Im afraid theyre about to do it again. I say this in recollection of the disappointment that caused share prices fall from the high 20's all the way back down to the the very low 20's last time these guys opened their books. A 30% pullback was really not expected at that time and is NOT normal, I don't care what the pumptards here are saying, and many of the newer longs still have a bitter taste in their mouth. I believe that what motivated the failure of EXAS's share price in the selloff we saw last week of nearly 5 points after making a new high was the all too recent memory of management's capacity to disappoint. Im just happy that I was short at or near the top in both of those two past instances. As many here know, I was short big at every dollar increment from 22 -29 and it was looking like I might not get to cover at a profit. In the end I was able to cover below 21 on all of my shorts at an astounding profit!. It gives me a lot of breathing room in my current long position which is quite small however I will buy more as the situation calls for it. Let's just see what management has to say tomorrow. Simply meeting expectations won't cut it. We need some positive guidance on the earnings (burn rate) front.
you're joking right? Trader missed the bottom 1/2 of this move in its entirety. No great praise from these quarters. Your false stock god has been dethroned diejour, and you reveal yourself to be the worshiping doperbaby fangirl that you are!
This wheel ain't spinnin! Ha!
THAT WAS ME DOPE! And thank YOU!
But what does ROTH have to do with anything at all?
Go back to your boat and gf before you lose everything!
