    Oh yes. Feeler gauge and dwell meter, sure.

  • MannKind Finally Catches A Break [View article]
    I recall reading last year that MNKD would obtain spirometers and sell them at a low price/at cost to doctors, so they'd get a discount on them. Sounds like MNKD never followed thru on this.

  • Protalex To Start Phase 1/2 Trial With PRTX-100 In Patients With ITP [View article]
    I think many like myself are watching it but there's no volume. Too early to buy but am monitoring it.

    But is it a #1 or #2 brattice?

  • Why You Should Own Brainstorm Cell Therapeutics [View article]
    It was primarily a safety trial so don't talk statistical proof of efficacy in such a small group. Nice try.

    Yes, I noted Jason's suggestions that maybe earlier stage and younger participants in the next trial would show better results.

  • Date And Time Is Set For Athersys Phase II Stroke Presentation [View article]
    I believe the data was sent to the third party on 3/22 for evaluation. Scheduling the presentation on 4/19 is a show of confidence on the part of ATHX I would think. Not happy about the insider selling though.

  • Sandstorm Gold's Aurizona Stream: Why It Failed And What The Industry Can Learn [View article]
    I'm diversified and generally keep allotments below 3%, yes. Its just sometimes we can get too excited by one company and invest too much. It backfires more often than I'd like, but my best picks have been when I was more disciplined.

    Sometimes I'd swear there is a "atural Law of Hubris" in the market. When I play small ball I do OK, but when I go overweight on any one stock I often get creamed.

  • Return Of The Gold Standard [View article]
    I've been waiting for something like this for a long time. Now I just hope they make it available to US citizens, but onerous banking regs may discourage them.

    Bitgold will be a public company next month on the CSE, ticker will be XAU.

    OK thanks, that helps.

    Bitgold isn't another currency (despite the term "bit"). You buy gold for your account and can pay in dollars from it. Then the equivalent amount in gold is deducted from your account.

  • Molycorp Surges On '60 Minutes' Profile [View article]
    Not so sure the discussion of the imminent bankruptcy of Molycorp is in their interest. If anything it will draw more shorting.

  • Sandstorm Gold: Shining Bright Like A Diamond [View article]
    Chris,
    SAND bought shares in Bitgold during their Dec offering, but I have not been able to find out how much they acquired. Have you come across this info?

    Rock, can you explain what a "block chain" is? I been coming across it lately but can't find any explanation of it that I've been able to use to get my head around.

  • Get Ready For The Latest Stock Bubble To Go Pop! [View article]
    Sometimes I wonder if there is a financial equivalent to the "Heisenberg Principle" in physics: its impossible to observe a particle without affecting its motion because the act of observation alters its motion (light hitting it).

    It seems sometimes people front run cycles or economic theories and they break down when they reach critical mass.
