  • IGI Labs: A Conviction Buy For 2015 [View article]
    Assuming $150M revenue 2017, if market cap is 3x sales, we are still at approx. the same share price? They'll need to use this loan to really bust out, with more significant acquisitions to multiply sales even faster. Its finally a solid growth story, but 'billions' in market cap will require a different approach than the incremental one they are applying. They/stock price may be a little ahead of itself here. Would be a great pickup again $6-7 on a market pullback. In from $10 to $.60, and now back to $9. A very hard 15 year ride. Nice article.

  • Vycor Medical: A Hidden Medical Device Gem [View article]
    I believe at a recent conference their CEO mentioned a couple of upcoming events, including test results from Cornell U. The audio is no longer on their website. Anybody remember what was presented additional to what is included in this article?

  • CCA Industries Is A Classic Value With A Catalyst Special Situation [View article]
    This company is in permanent decline. Nothing can stop that. It can lessen it losses, but it can't prevent continuing discontinuations at its largest customers. It has 3rd rate items that are each rounding errors in their customers' volumes. The weight loss products bought it an extra 5 years life, but that wave has passed. They have to give away the store just to stay on shelves. Not a promising scenario. Be bought, or be gone.

  • Still Several Reasons To Remain Long Amarantus [View article]
    JN, great update. Can you provide a $range for "blockbuster"?
    'Eltoprazine ... if Amarantus can confirm these secondary improvements in patients, the drug has blockbuster potential in our view'

  • Don't Sweat North Atlantic Drilling's Debt Load [View article]
    Why would management have the div recently increased when the opinion is that now it may have to be decreased?

  • Marathon Patent Group Continues To Evolve [View article]
    This company is gearing up the Big Mo. With each campaign it creates bigger mass, and greater momentum for ever quickening revenues and profits, with fatter margins on static overhead costs. And Spangenberg sees to it that the pipeline is constantly stuffed with premium enforcement picks. How big can it eventually get, with such a low float, is the question.

    Very nice article. There is another ALS company with trials to begin over the next month at Mayo, Mass General, U Mass, Hadassah (Israel), with a number of patients who have previously experienced excellent post op results, BCLI (Brainstorm). Wondering if you are aware of, and what your thoughts are relative to CUR. Thank you.

    Well-composed article. Perhaps CTIX HQ would be well served to review it as well.

  • TAT Technologies: New Ownership And Resolved Headwinds Present Compelling Upside [View article]
    Didn't TAT pay a dividend at one point? When conceivably could that be a possibility again, if ever?

  • Sprott Resource Corp. - 11% Current Yield [View article]
    Very helpful article. But, without a deeper discount to NAV, not sure there isn't further downside due to weaker market trend and further gold slippage. This puts things in perspective.

  • Seadrill: It's A Good Time To Be A Shareholder [View article]
    "This is an action that was mandated by the Bureau of Safety and Environmental Enforcement that required the replacement of all Vetco H4 connector bolts. This downtime will be a drag on the company's first quarter earnings, particularly so since it is the floater fleet that is affected, but this downtime should prove to be a one-off event and, since Seadrill has now corrected this problem."
    DivInvLA - someone was responsible..If the BOP provider, then wouldn't their insurance pay? If not the BOP provider, then it was Seadrill's screw-up, no? Seems that the Regulator came to Seadrill's rescue, and there was a lack of care here....costing $millions. Surprising considering the supposed pristine reputation of the Norse drillers, ie. would have expected this perhaps from BP. Expensive lesson learned.

  • Seadrill: It's A Good Time To Be A Shareholder [View article]
    Great article.
    Is Seadrill inept/at fault for things such as misplaced bolts on the BOP's, or is the supplier's fault. Regardless, doesn't Seadrill have recourse with the supplier/installer of these devices? I had thought that the Norwegian drillers (NATDF, SDRL) were ultra-cautious/ulta-re... with respect to these safety issues...I guess not?

  • MusclePharm: A Retail Long's Reflection On The Past And Pondering Of The Future [View article]
    I recently heard that the Frost investment here is not 'active', so I am not so sure that his name association is enough magic. Let's see who they get to take charge from the outside. I am sure there are more skeletons in the closet that will come falling out over time. I am seeing Frost being the Opko hands-on leader, but a simple, but heavy, investor in most of his other holdings.
