  • Liberty Media Speaks About Charter And Sirius XM [View article]
    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.

  • Why You Should Buy Sirius XM [View article]
    One behavior of SIRI stock price it has exibited over the last two years is that it closely matches its annual revenues.

    Using the projected revenues from the table in this article, this will be the likely SIRI stock prices (assuming SIRI is left alone as an independent company):

    2014 - $4.20
    2015 - $4.70
    2016 - $5.30
    2016 - $5.80

    It is an annual growth of more than 10%. Consider this as the base line for now. Should it be taken over, its price will certainly jump over $5!

  • Axion Power: Out Of The PIPE And Into The Light - Part II [View article]
    JP I read an article yesterday about military use of lasers and rail guns to shoot at enemies. With the rail gun the problem is it uses so much power a big power plant is needed to make it work. To overcome the problem, they are looking into batteries that can help bring down the power plant size needed. My question is, with Axion batteries' high discharge and charge rates, would this not be ideal for this application? If Axion has been asked by the military to work with them we may never know as they will perhaps be highly classified work.

  • Sirius XM Struggles To Add Subscribers [View article]
    I have asked the same question last year and no response from SIRI management. In fact I suggested, with the internet and wifi connections today, SIRI business can now extend to overseas subscribers with no additional infrastructure costs, i.e., no new satellites required.

    There are loads of people who have used SIRI and have moved overseas that are unable to subscribe for lack of a good table top internet-wifi-enabled-... offering from Sirius. Payment arrangements from these overseas people should not be a barrier especially now that we have pay-pal available in most situations.

    Well, Comcast crushed Malone's Charter bid and Malone, in this mornings' news is giving first option to Discovery Channel and Liberty Globe in the future. This may bode well for SIRI Nation. Any opinion on this CN?

  • Advanced Cell Technology: Took A Hit Or Preparing To Throw A Knockout Blow? [View article]
    Wonderful article. Thanks for doing your research. Esekla's hidden PhD's claims reminds me of the Cold Fusion debacle in the 1980's that was so sensational it rocked the Nuclear Science world but could not be duplicated and eventually proven to be scientifically wrong..... except here, the claimant is in hiding, not out in the open.

    JP, last November AXPW CEO stated in the CC that there was going to be a meeting with BMW folks in early December. Well, it is now mid Feb and nothing has been announced. Did you hear anything on this?

  • Advanced Cell Technology's Intellectual Property Takes A Hit [View article]
    Factual, clear, accurate response. Thanks Jayren4 for taking the time.

    Esekla, by now, with a lot of responses in and you having to defend yourself every time by stating that your article has been misread is time you should accept your article was poorly written and maybe it is time to end your agony by withdrawing it?

  • Advanced Cell Technology's Intellectual Property Takes A Hit [View article]
    Furthermore, the effect of this new discovery on iPSC cells on ACTC will not materialize, assuming you are right on the subject patents, until 10 to 15 years from now. In less than 5 years ACTC would received FDA approval on its hESC cure to macular degeneration and would have evolved into a multibillion dollar company or would have been bought by a big pharma. Hence, this article amounts to nothing to well informed investors.

    Esekla, are you trying to lower the price so you can buy shares low knowing that very good results from the trials are about to come out? As you yourself wrote:

    "To summarize briefly, Advanced Cell Technology estimates the total addressable market for Retinal Degeneration to be $25-$30 billion.", then why the emphasis on iPSC patents which are immaterial at this time since ACTC has not even started a Phase I trial on it?

  • Growth Potential In The Uranium Industry [View article]
    The Japanese are currently trying to stop the leak of contaminated water from the area around the reactor casement. The more cooling water they pour in the more leaks they have.

    Somehow and surprisingly, they have not learned from the Russian experience. When the plant in Chernobyl Ukraine blew up, the Russians quickly entombed the reactor core in concrete. After that they no longer had to contend with additional radiation leaks or contamination coming from the reactor. They only had to deal what had come out when it blew up. The entombment is good to last for a couple of hundreds of years. The only deaths they had were the few operators on the job and a handful of heroic helicopter pilots who sacrificed their lives by flying over a very radioactive reactor and dropping concrete on it.

    They could do the same in Fukushima without heroics. They have time to lead line helicopters to protect the pilots and they can entomb the reactor core with concrete. That will stop the leaks and finish up on cleanup.

    The Fukushims disaster was a result of a simple mistake that could have been fixed with a simple solution. The mistake was they did not review their design assumption (the height of the tsunami wave) after the Bander Ache earthquake in Indonesia. Had they looked at that, they would have arrived at the conclusion that their design assumptions may be short and made corrections. The sea water that flowed over the concrete barriers went into the emergency generator building and drowned the generator. The generator supplied emergency power to the circulating pumps; without the pump running, the reactor overheated and melted.

    The simple fix that would have prevented the disaster from happening was to completely enclose the generator building to prevent flood waters from coming through the large ground level vent louvers on the walls. To bring in ventilation air into the generator room, they could have installed a 40 foot intake air/ventilation shaft which will bring air in even if the plant is surrounded by tsunami waters.

  • Sirius XM Radio's CEO Discusses Q4 2013 Results - Earnings Call Transcript [View article]
    One factor in the growth of used car subscriber acquisition that was not mentioned in this CC is that the satellite radio units installed in used cars from 2006 to mid 2012 have no capability to connect to the internet. Hence, competitors like Pandora, Spotify, etc. will not be a factor in this segment which involved about 40-45 million cars..

  • Do Tomorrow's Q4 Earnings Numbers Really Matter For SiriusXM Investors? [View article]
    I am voting NO and so will the majority of the 43% who own SIRI. That will put SIRI on the way to remaining an independent company. If Malone still wants SIRI he has to sweeten his offer to $4 plus.
