  • Advanced Cell Technology: Maximizing Profit On Reverse Splits And Phase I Results [View article]
    Around the fall quarter last year, ACT Management talked about not going through with the planned 200,000 cell cohort because the trial data they have gathered up to the 150,000 cell injections indicated it was sufficient. There was talk of asking the FDA to approve skipping the 4th cohort and thus save time. Eventually, they went through with it. I am not sure that 4th cohort trial's results will be included in the publication.

  • Advanced Cell Technology: Maximizing Profit On Reverse Splits And Phase I Results [View article]
    Over a year ago, ACTC requested FDA for approval of an additional cohort, dubbed Phase 1a ( at 150,000 cells per injection ). The cohort would consists of younger people than in the those in Phase 1, and the goal was to see if they will have better efficacy. The Ph 1 cohorts of 100,000 and 150,000 cells indicated that this is likely to happen. Therefore, people's focus should be on the efficacy of Ph 1a.

  • Update: Advanced Cell Technology Conference Call [View article]
    Research is being conducted in Japan to treat wet AMD using iPS Cells. They are about 12 to 24 months behind ACT in their trials. There are a lot of similarities in their approach to treatment but for their use of iPS cells.

  • Update: Advanced Cell Technology Conference Call [View article]
    Ph 1b Trials was requested by ACT and granted by FDA. This extra cohort trial was to treat patients who are younger than the 70-80 year olds they had treated with the 50K and 100K doses. ACT wanted to find out if the results would be more successful with the much younger patients.

    If my memory serves me right, ACT has already injected 3 patients with 150K cells and are just waiting for the end of the 6 month period.

  • What Is Sirius XM Worth? [View article]
    I always enjoy reading your comments as well as SF and CN whenever an article like this appears.... especially a quality article like this.

    SIRI keeps offering programs on special occasions and this really sets them quite a ways apart from the all music competition. I would love to see SIRI offer special programs on the political arena as we approach every election, perhaps on the last 6-8 weeks prior to election day. On Presidential election years this would be easy to so since Candidates will be of National interest. This year, it will be tough to do for the interest is for local Congressmen and Senators. But inclusion of political discussions will definitely help gain many more SIRI subscribers.

    Blue, you are so direct in your comparison you embarrass Sammy, the author. You also embarrass me for I bought a few SIRI stocks at about $6 in 2008 and the reason bot was I thought it was a bargain having seen it at $13 several months back.

  • Sirius XM Is No Longer A Growth Stock [View article]
    I was wondering what you think might have happened to Siri had Ergen gotten Control of SIRI had Malone not provided the money that SIRI used to pay off the loan note Ergen was holding. What would have Ergen done to SIRI. It is all speculation on past events.

    This is also off topic but very historical. Back in Feb 2009, SIRI, was on the verge of going BK. Ergen of Dish network had bot all the loans of SIRI and was coming due in a few days. Should SIRI be unable to pay its loan it would go BK. Ergen would wind up with control of SIRI basically for free. Fortunately, Mel Karmazin (SIRI CEO) was able to make a deal with John Malone (Liberty Media) and SIRI was able to pay off the loans Ergen was holding. Ergen's scheme was thwarted! That was very close!

    Some people then wondered what would have happened to SIRI had Ergen succeeded. Well, two years ago he tried using the same scheme on Lightsquared which went BK. This is where it is now:

  • Advanced Cell secures equity facility [View news story]
    The arrangement with Lincoln Park will not cost 350 million shares right away... or could be never. ACTC gets the amount it needs and the payment is in shares valued at the share price at that time. In the last two years, ACTC has drawn only the amount it expected to use for a few months. which help reduce dilution rate. With the pending 'Publication' and hopefully great results, the price of shares will go up and consequently, for the same amount of money, Lincoln park will get a lot less shares, hence, less dilution.

  • ACTC: Have The Stars Finally Aligned For A Breakout Year? [View article]
    If I may add, to get listed in NASDAQ, the minimum stock price is $1.00. If, upon Publication of Peer Reviewed Results, the stock goes way above $1.00, ACTC Management will have the option of not instituting a reverse split. It can still do an RS if management determines that that is beneficial to ACTC in the long term. On the other hand, if the stock price stays below $1 after Publication, ACTC will have no choice but do an RS to get listed. NASDAQ listing is a must for ACTC to move forward.
