  • SYN was just starting to look at it and it popped today...a few catalysts. A few risks... Might be worth a look


    Maybe not the one......

  • RVM. No debt. Safe company. It's Troy Mine will be back online whenever copper prices go up. Can buy cheap as hell.


    Already long with 4,000 shares. Would like reassurance.

  • I like ATHX with a capitalization near $100 M. It does not seem a whole lot riskier than HYGS and has an upside of 100+ times current price if its main product, MultiStem, works and gets approved. IMO, MultiStem has a reasonably good chance for approval . Future dilution should be minimal due to the fact it has $25 M cash and will likely get substantial funds from partnerships (RTIX, PFE, etc. ) within next six months. Numerous AI articles have been written about it, but the one below "Athersys Valuation" by BioInvestor71 is one of the best.

  • Second that. (ATHX) is one of my favourites plays in the bio field and you never know it may be a multibagger like (MNKD) by this time next year!

  • Northern Graphite?


    While not quite on the cusp of profitability like your hit HYGS -- it is a year to 18 months away from production.


    Buyers are looking for a producer with a quality product to get away from the uncertainty they face in China which has dominated the market for years and recently decided to reduce exports. Importantly, Graphite has been flagged a critical resource by both the US and the UK.


    Of the 80 or so junior miners in this space worldwide, it is only one with a Bankable Feasibility Study. It has highly regarded management, a projected 70 year mine life in Ontario with a large percentage of premium, large-flake graphite sought by industry.


    Moreover, if the disruptive material graphene ever leaves the lab and becomes commercially viable, NGPHF will be in a position to meet demand for decades.

  • Joe you want want to look at GUKYK.PK they have a upcoming court case that they are in favor of winning which should atleast double the stock and then soon after might be brought out by a big oil super power as they are sitting on alot of untouched oil fields (with political issues getting easier where they are based). We could be looking at a 200%-300% gain in less than 3-6months. do your on research to back my points up.


    also what is a good price to get into HYGS? would you still consider 13-15range a good buy in? thanks?

  • Hi Joe


    Take a look at Alpha minerals AMW.V. They've come up with historic uranium drill results at Patterson Lake in Athabasca
    Basin. They already have 800 meters of strike length. Hathor was
    bought out for $600MM and they only had 300 meters strike.
    They will start the summer drill program in early July to expan
    the project. Malcolm Shaw wrote article on SA yesterday about
    uranium in general and Alpha specifically yesterday.

  • Hey Joe,
    Can you check out CERP.


    This could be the blockbuster in the future or go bankrupt!!!
    I'm leaning towards blockbuster. This will be the future for plastic bags, I'm just wondering how long it will take to catch on.


    "Cereplast Compostables Resins, which are compostable, renewable, ecologically sound substitutes for petroleum-based plastics."


    Great articles, thanks!!!!

  • Figured I would throw in Tribute Pharma (TBUFF)
    This one meets my DD criteria for buying any stock.
    1) Huge Insider buying Over half is owned by insiders and they are buying hand over fist.
    2) Top notch management:
    Robert Harris - President &Chief Executive Officer
    Founder of privately-held Tribute Pharmaceuticals which was acquired by the Company in 2011. Pharmaceutical industry veteran. Held executive positions at Biovail Corporation including VP of Business Development and GM of Biovail’s Canadian commercial group ,where he helped grow revenues to $150 M within four years, leading to Biovail’s acquisition by Valeant (NYSE:VRX) for $3.2 billion.20 years at Wyeth, now division of Pfizer (NYSE:PFE),where as Director of Sale s of Specialty Care group he built out Canadian market segment.Mr. Harris owns 20% of Tribute.


    John Gregory- Director
    Founded and built King Pharmaceuticals (formerly NYSE:KG) which was recently sold to Pfizer (NYSE:PFE) for $3.6 billion. Grew company from small family business to the world‘s 39th largest pharma company that was
    included in S&P 500 Index with revenues over $1 billion.Now managing partner of SJ Strategic Investments , a family owned investment management firm. Mr. Gregory owns 12% of Tribute.


    Growing Revenues
    The Company, formerly known as Stellar Pharmaceuticals,
    completed its acquisition of privately held Tribute Pharmaceuticals in December of 2011 and changed its name to Tribute in January 2013. Gross revenues have grown to $13.1
    million for the 12 months ended September 30, 2012 when including
    revenues of both companies for the last four quarters. In October of 2012 Tribute launched a key new product, CAMBIA®, for the treatment of migraine headaches, which addresses a $150 million market in Canada and is expected to make a meaningful contribution to revenues in Q4 and beyond. The Company is actively looking to build out its product portfolio to generate additional near term revenues.


    Established Sales Infrastructure in Canadian Market
    Canada is the 10th largest healthcare market in the
    world, driven by its national healthcare plan which covers 100% of its population. It’s a geographic market served by very few specialty pharmaceutical companies.With 24 full time sales people,
    Tribute sells and distributes to doctors,hospitals and clinics through out Canada. Leveraging its sales and distribution infrastructure,Tribute negotiates for the exclusive license to sell products developed by companies like Pfizer in the Canadian market.


    Significant Potential of Bezalip SR® in U.S.Market
    Tribute has licensed the exclusive rights to Bezalip SR,
    a drug that lowers cholesterol and triglycerides, in the U.S. and Canada.Tribute now sells Bezalip SR in Canada and is developing
    its strategy to obtain FDA approval in the U.S.
    , addressing the $3 billion U.S.fibrate market, a subset of
    the $20 billion U.S. and Canadian dyslipidemia market
    .Tribute recognizes Bezalip SR in the U.S as a significant asset and seeks to maximize this opportunity.Bezalip SR is approved in more than 40 countries worldwide.


    Accomplished Management Team
    Tribute’s management team and board members have
    successfully built pharmaceutical companies that have been subsequently sold for valuations over $3 billion. Their industry relationships, expertise in licensing
    and building sales forces are key value drivers for the Company.
