    The company just reported that two states are now signed up for reimbursement. This is happening much quicker than expected.

  • Chanticleer: This $2 Stock Would Be Cheap At $6 [View article]
    You bring up some really good points that I should have addressed in the article. When a popular new restaurant opens, there is something called the honeymoon phase where initial revenue actually exceeds normalized revenue. For that reason my estimates are actually conservative, with regards to new restaurant revenue.

    The valuation for each Good Times restaurant is actually higher than $2.4 million, because Good Times valuation has gone up since I made the calculation. To arrive at the valuation per restaurant simply take Good Times valuation of $117 million and divide it by the company’s 37 restaurants, which gives each restaurant a valuation of $3.1 million.

    Thanks for the schedule info. What makes you think results of the meeting will be public tomorrow, and not at a later date?

  • Results For All Articles: 150% Average Gain Per Analysis [View instapost]
    Let's use 2014 as an example. There were 4 articles, and the resulting gains ranged from 15% for Drone Aviation, up to 66% for Finjan. We add these gains and divide by 4, which gives us the average gain per analysis for 2014.

  • Google's And Facebook's Drone Investments Make Drone Aviation My Top Pick [View instapost]
    I'm not aware of any fundamental news that is driving the price down. I just spoke with the company, and management appears to continue to execute.

    My theory is this: in the reverse merger, somebody got free trading shares that they have been selling which has driven the share price down to this extreme level. What perplexes me, is Dr. Frost didn't even catch this, he's in at $.75.

    I was shocked when it hit $.30. At $.16 I am flabbergasted. At some point the selling will end, but with several hundred thousand shares selling at $.16, I can't predict when that will be.

    Common sense implies that under the tongue would be easier for a Parkinson's patient.

    In my opinion, the only reason the company switched to a major accounting firm was for the NASDAQ up listing. What we don't know, is when this will be completed, but I see no reason for the company to delay completing the necessary steps.

    The company targeted completing the trial by the end of September, so following a period of analysis I would expect data to be released any day now. But if we had to wait until early December, I wouldn't be surprised.

  • One Of The Best Biotech Trades I Have Ever Encountered [View instapost]
    If you can figure that out I'm impressed! If you're wrong, I'd like to know what stock you're looking at, because with all those attributes, it could be a good future investment.

  • USell: Why This $2 Stock Should Be Trading Above $6 Today [View instapost]
    You're absolutely right, you can get more on eBay, but when you subtract eBay's and PayPal's commissions, postage and packaging, the profit factor diminishes. When you look at uSells 40% year-over-year growth, and the 70% month over month increase in orders placed, you can see that a lot of consumers are choosing the easier approach with uSell, rather than going through the hassle of dealing with eBay. I've done it both ways, and I will continue to sell items on uSell.

  • USell: Why This $2 Stock Should Be Trading Above $6 Today [View instapost]
    The most accurate way to value a company is based on revenue, growth rate, and balance sheet data. uSell's fundamentals are strong, and we have no way of knowing how this intrinsic value was calculated, or whether or not it included all current pertinent data. Much of a prospectus comes from a legal perspective, not an investment perspective, so I generally disregard most of what I read in a prospectus. I haven't looked into warrant trading, but I would be surprised if there is any trading activity at all. Your broker could probably give you a clear answer.

    You’re absolutely correct. If an author is paid to write an analysis, the author is required by law to disclose the exact nature of the compensation. Here’s the relevant section from the securities act of 1933:

    SEC 17b
    SECURITIES ACT OF 1933
    (b) It shall be unlawful for any person, by the use of any means or instruments of transportation or communication in interstate commerce or by the use of the mails, to publish, give publicity to, or circulate any notice, circular, advertisement, newspaper, article, letter, investment service, or communication which, though not purporting to offer a security for sale, describes such security for a consideration received or to be received, directly or indirectly, from an issuer, underwriter, or dealer, without fully disclosing the receipt, whether past or prospective, of such consideration and the amount thereof.

    Here is a link if you want more detail about the securities act of 1933:

    Section 17 b is great because it allows investors to determine which authors are being paid, and which authors are simply voicing their own opinion. As you probably know, Seeking Alpha prohibits authors from being paid by companies for writing articles, even with disclosure. Wise decision on Seeking Alpha's part.
