  • Is It The Right Time To Buy Sirius XM? [View article]
    Two things the author did not mention that put down the stock price were the missing of earnings at 4qtr CC.

    1st -- last years unexpected selling of huge number of cars with subscription (loss of subscription) and then replacing with a new car with new promo (no revenue). This resulted in a significant earnings hit.

    2nd -- last year's change by GM that deferred earnings to this year. We should see this earnings return in the next two quarters.

    There is a third item the author did not mention and will have a significant effect on stock price is the resumption of buyback - suspended due to LM's offer.

    Another item that may be reported next week is the impact on lower subscription rate ($5+) for Latino subscribers who get limited programming. This is aimed at Latinos who typically buy used cars.

  • Japan OKs plan to re-open nuclear plants [View news story]
    Their NPP should be switching to the type of fuel Lightbridge will be producing. It is far safer and does not meltdown like that in Fukushima.

  • Advanced Cell Technology On The Doorstep [View article]
    This tells me Cohort#4 has 4 patients for AMD and 4 for SMD left to treat in the US. It implies Cohort #2a trial is complete; this is the most important cohort since they are patients who are in the relatively early stages of AMD and SMD, and hence, are likely to be more responsive to the treatment and will have better results.

  • BioTime Joins Advanced Cell Technology In The AMD Race [View article]
    ACTC is going to finish first, way ahead of competitors that may not even it to the make the finish line. ACTC, should they finish first, meaning their just completed trials show that patients' vision improves enough and reverses the deterioration, will have enough money (stock will jump several fold) to pursue this litigation with better patent lawyers.

    Several patents they have received in the last two years will be theirs exclusively, I hope, and will lift up the stocks so much their funding woes will go away.

    Should the trials result show high efficacy, they can quickly apply to the FDA for Compassionate approval. Approval will leave the competition in the dust.

    So, we are all now just waiting ..... and waiting..... and waiting..... for the trial report which they started writing back in November and I believe is going thru peer review or have gone thru peer review.

  • Sirius XM: Liberty And Apple Create It A Buying Opportunity [View article]
    I agree.... if only SIRI can offer an internet radio of say BOSE speaker quality they will have a big jump in subscribers. They should welcome new subscribers to this type of radio without having to be a car subscriber first. Retired people who hardly ever drive want to listen to music that is not interrupted by ads. Because the internet is world wide, this market will be bigger than the US auto radio subscribers.

  • Wall Street Breakfast: Must-Know News [View article]
    People have died..... because of executive decisions. Some have to go to jail so it will force a change in culture. The lawyer who gave them legal advice that they followed should go to jail too. If the executives went contrary to the lawyers sound legal advice then the lawyer does not go to jail.

  • Sirius: This Stock Will Never Disappoint You [View article]
    In light of Liberty dropping its buyout plan with Siri yesterday, a very significant event, this articles is a bit outdated.

    Stock closed at 3.44 today with a volume of 299 million shares.

  • Sirius XM And Liberty Media: What To Expect Short-Term [View article]
    65 minutes after the market opened and the volume is 172 million. If you are buying time to do so now. A lot of shorts have covered and are on their way to make huge deposits into their bank accounts. If not, they are buying long.

    It will be interesting where the price ends today and at what volume.

  • StemCells, Inc. And Advanced Cell Technology: The Race To Treat AMD [View article]
    This is in addition to the great comments above and Ryan Pollack's below.

    Not mentioned anywhere is the fact that ACTC is thinking of or has already requested the FDA to waiver the trials for 200,000 cells cohort. ACTC thinks the results are so good at 150,000 cell cohorts that the 200k cohort cells is not needed. Furthermore, ACTC is thinking (maybe wishful as some would say) of applying for "compassionate" approval (sorry, at this moment the proper technical term escapes me). If they get the FDA nod of approval for both, ACTC will be a blockbuster stock.

    At the last CC, management was rocked by Rabin's forced resignation and the SEC $4M fine. At that time they did mention that an update is forthcoming so resolution to these questions will hopefully be answered in the very near future.... like in the next few weeks, perhaps?

    Should ACTC live up to our expectations and really come up with great trials update, the stock price will zoom up and their money problems will disappear. In the meantime, all we can do is wait patiently.

    Majority of SIRI stockholders are voting no. The deal is no deal. SIRI has much higher potential standing alone.

  • An Early Valuation Of Neuralstem's NSI566 [View article]
    I looked at many, not all, of your links and as a non-medical person (I am an engineer very much interested in medical research), this is an education for me. I have been following CUR for three years now but your links have given me more information than the last three years. I appreciate your well balanced approach.

    Thank you so much.
