  • ACTC: Have The Stars Finally Aligned For A Breakout Year? [View article]
    Question for the Author: With yesterday's press release that mentions that the SEC has a case against ACTC and former CEO Gary Rabin, was this not settled last Dec 2013 as you mentioned above? Or is this a new case?

    "The SEC settlement was a necessary step forward in pursuing a company objective to secure institutional funding and uplist to a more senior exchange. The company was fined $4.1 million dollars and has been permitted to pay the fine over the next six quarters. "

  • ACTC completes 1:100 reverse split [View news story]
    In the 8 cents range a good Publication would have easily doubled the share price. Now that it is in the $7-8 range (yes, that is where it will be for a while), a good Pub will only kick it up to the $10-12 range.... or 25-50% rise. We longs just got screwed!

  • Advanced Cell Technology: Maximizing Profit On Reverse Splits And Phase I Results [View article]
    If my memory serves me right shareholder authorized ratio is from 20:1 up to 100:1 R/S. The previous shareholder authorized ratio that expired last year was 80-200:1.

    In one of the CC's, ACTC pointed out that they were surprised to find that in people who have had AMD for many years, the rods and cones were just dormant, not dead as they expected. The R&C's were revived by the cell injection. I believe Smith on Stocks mentioned this in one of his articles covering that CC on SA. It would be interesting how this is discussed in the Publication.

  • 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.

    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.
