    ctoast - I do not know why shorts are able to "lie" and kill stocks w/o any fallout from the SEC, other than to say that SEC is clearly the fox watching the hen house. Again, and again, we have seen how the SEC looked the other and then, secured lucrative positions with the firms they "watch." To me, believing that the SEC has any integrity is the mistake that investors make, at its infancy, the SEC was a sham - first head of the SEC was Joe Kennedy - talk about the fox watching the hen house, lol. Life isn't fair - that is all there is to it.

    My tone reflects the reality of being a GSAT long. I have not sold my GSAT as I still believe that GSAT will get FCC approval and that GSAT's VALUE will increase marketedly and longs will be rewarded.

    Sincerely, all the best in your investments

    Sentiment: Hold

  • whiskey8860 whiskey8860 Oct 12, 2014 9:00 AM Flag

    One of the reasons that GSAT is so vulnerable is because the FCC HAS YET TO RULE - we've been waiting a long time - I remember last NOV/DEC in time for Amazon and the xmas season - but that was delayed due to gov't shut down, then June/July things were getting hot - response period bla, bla, bla, then Net Neutrality started to come into the spotlight and several well formed, albeit opaque, answers of how it was "good" for GSAT, and then more reading of the tea leaves that GSAT would make it onto the Sep/Year end FCC agenda, and guess what - another swing and a miss. So now we continue to wait, and guess what? A short sellers spies the vulnerability and attacks - I am long, loosing my shirt currently, but staying long, don't know if I am living in denial, or still believing that GSAT will ultimately get that heretofore illusive FCC approval and all will be well with my world. One thing I completely disagree with the shorties is that the FCC approval will not have a positive effect on GSAT's stock. I think that is complete short BS. But they have that right - this is a free market.

    From what I understand - that is common for Wallstreet. Do you work for JPM? You don't have to answer my question, just curious.

  • It could be lack of news, coupled with weak hands, market getting pounded - panic setting in

    my guess is panic selling - this is exactly what it looks like

    personally, holding - but not buying right here - waiting for smoke to clear - then buying

    GL all

    Great post, John. I listened to the CC: and was disappointed that Schwartz did not provide any near term milestones and target dates for GALE 401. I would love to hear comments/news from GALE management regarding upcoming milestones, as I am sure most longs would too - as we are all expecting good news on this front.

    And as always, GO NEUVAX - CURE, CURE, CURE

    Good luck in all your investments

    Lockheed Martin Contract

  • whiskey8860 whiskey8860 Sep 15, 2014 7:54 PM Flag

    I am missing it too - really does not make any sense - especially given all the attention Lockheed is being given lately with FORTIS - and their exo-skeleton - and that is sourced form EKSO - they are the ones with the Lockheed contract - not RWLK - personally holding my EKSO - and waiting until the market catches up.. BUT would love any insight anyone has into the disparity in stock prices - which personally, I think is temporary. EKSO - MANAGEMENT - PLEASE GET YOUR ACT TOGETHER - AND PUT EKSO ON THE MAP

    Sentiment: Strong Buy

  • To my fellow EKSO longs- I was surprised that we went down today - as in I can't believe that we did not get some of RWLK's stardust. I have no explanation. My broker has no explanation. He explained his issues with the IPO. 3MM shares - was reduced down from what they wanted to offer + 14 - 16 was what they originally thought they were going to go public with - they reduced the number of shares and the price because it was "cold" / no interest - and then it took off like a bat out of hell - and followed through today - no idea what the heck that is about - he still thinks RWLK will cool off and come down/sell-off. Who knows. Personally, think that both co's have great tech = and am mystified that EKSO, given the lockheed contract is sucking wind down here - I really don't think that'll last - but please do your own DD - as I am not an expert. My broker does not like EKSO because he thinks it is all "promise", no FDA approval. I told him that EKSO is a lot more than promise - i.e. lockheed contract - but not sure why we don't have FDA approval. Personally love the prospects of EKSO and I am holding because I think the market has not caught up with EKSO yet.

    does not make any sense - but that is what makes a market - eventually the truth will out - weak hands may have panicked - which to me is insane - but I am used to irrational market behavior and know that the truth does will out. I really think that the longs that held - will be so happy they did/rewarded

    Well, if the AH holds, Monday should be a good day for RWLK. And hopefully, my broker was wrong and this "wierdness" gets explained.

    whiskey8860 whiskey8860 Sep 13, 2014 9:12 PM Flag

    He said it was very strange that it opened, went down, showed no interest in the IPO, then flew - and the shares of IPO were 3 million, shares immediately after offering 11,370,936 - which means RWLK left a lot of money on the table / got royally screwed - should have pulled the IPO. We did not talk long - I will talk to him more on Monday - I might have gotten part of his message wrong. But, I did not get the IPO vs shares available immediately after offering wrong as I went to RWLK's site and pulled up their pricing term sheet / available in "investors" section, under financial information, scroll down, choose FWP download, dated 9/12/14 - you can see it for yourself.

  • Health Digest with Haresh Khubchandani and 5 others
    Hamburger chef Jamie Oliver has just won a battle against one of the largest fast food chains in the world. After Oliver showed how McDonald’s hamburgers are made, the franchise announced it will change its recipe.

    According to Oliver, the fatty parts of beef are “washed” in ammonium hydroxide and used in the filling of the burger. Before this process, according to the presenter, the food is deemed unfit for human consumption.

    According to the chef and presenter, Jamie Oliver, who has undertaken a war against the fast food industry: “Basically, we’re taking a product that would be sold in the cheapest way for dogs, and after this process, is being given to human beings.”

    Besides the low quality of the meat, the ammonium hydroxide is harmful to health. Oliver calls it “the pink slime process.”

    “Why would any sensible human being put meat filled with ammonia in the mouths of their children?” asked the chef, who wages a war against the fast food industry.

    In one of his initiatives, Oliver demonstrates to children how nuggets are made. After selecting the best parts of the chicken, the remains (fat, skin and internal organs) are processed for these fried foods.

    The company, Arcos Dorados, the franchise manager in Latin America, said such a procedure is not practiced in the region. The same applies to the product in Ireland and the UK, where they use meat from local suppliers.

    In the United States, Burger King and Taco Bell had already abandoned the use of ammonia in their products. The food industry uses ammonium hydroxide as an anti-microbial agent in meats, which has allowed McDonald’s to use otherwise “inedible meat.”

    Even more disturbing is that because ammonium hydroxide is considered part of the “component in a production procedure” by the USDA, consumers may not know when the chemical is in their food.

    On the official website of McDonald’s, the company claims that their meat is cheap because, while

  • my broker told me to stay away even though I was really looking forward to their IPO, because something was really wrong with the IPO, selling off and then rallying, RWLK left a lot of money on the table. My broker thinks we could see a sell-off next week - but is not against the long term prospects for RWLK - just really did not like what he saw with the IPO. I own shares in MZOR - lol / saw another MZOR shareholder on the board - hi there, and that is how RWLK got on my radar screen as well. Now, looking at the RWLK board - EKSO is on my radar screen - thanks EKSO shareholders for posting on this board, I reached out to them looking for help as to why the IPO was so funkified.

    Please if anyone knows what happened with the IPO - please share your insights.

    Good luck all - with all of your investments!!!
