  • Why Microsoft Should Buy BlackBerry Post Nokia And Rule The Galaxy As Father And Son [View article]
    Since we're all just beating an empty pan here, so I figure I'll fling my dung on you gents:

    MSFT's bid for BBRY already flopped as two sides could not come to an agreement and therefore MSFT struck it up with Nokia.

    lol that was fun!


    Another fun M&A pie in the sky suggestion: Aapl buys BBRY and MSFT merges with Aapl and Goog to make one happy family with total domination of a market. No anti-trust issues there...

  • Marijuana Stocks: The Madness Is Back [View article]
    @Perry, how can you say you have no compensated articles published on SA when a quick perusal of your articles show that you have indeed published articles on SA and were compensated for it... not for the content of the article but for writing the article itself, no?

    ???

  • LRAD Offers Catalysts And Asymmetric Risk/Reward [View article]
    @Peter Kaye,
    wouldn't it be cute if LRAD began selling units to muffle or cutoff the loud, protect-killing devices?

  • Chelsea Therapeutics Minor NDA Deficiencies Create Opportunity For Huge Gains [View article]
    The author minimized the risks and deficiencies that have happened and emphasized the positive aspects which, in truth, has nothing to do with the company or its drug - the ONLY positive item here is that the market is sizable and would be very profitable.

    However, FDA approval is FAR from a sure thing as if it was to happen, it should have happened when FDA reviewed it the first TWO times. While it may or may not happen now - but to say that it is a sure thing is flat out deception towards unsuspecting speculators (can't call people interested in CHTP investors) who are not as informed about CHTP's history or management.

  • BlackBerry: Can It Still Explode Higher? [View article]
    @Marcap, your current comment deserves more than just a handful of 'likes'. Billionaire, activist investors have multiple ways to be profitable in their trade and, as you opined, one such way would be to allow the stock to drop as much as possible for a privatization and then a handsome return on investment afterwards.

    For me, while I was long BBRY, this is the thought that worries me most about BBRY now. I believe the company can have more profitable days in the future, I just don't know if it will be earned on the Street or in the backroom.

  • A Friendly Rejoinder To 'Tesla: Be Ready For A Massive Crash' [View article]
    jgassel:
    "You can redact his Unipixel comments from this article if you so choose" - Can the average reader redact that those statements without doing the DD on Uni-Pixel that the author clearly did not even attempt until a week after publishing his article? Did you redact those statements before you read comments like mine?

    Actually I did. I completely disregarded the author's statement on Unipixel because he prefaced it by saying he had no knowledge or familiarity with the company! His preface informed the reader that what he was about to say was merely heresay and nothing more. When reading the article, I disregarded the entire section on Unipixel but took from it his point that they are not comparable - which you agree to even!

    Why did I not take exception to his UniPixel comments but you did? I'm not sure. Maybe I simply understand how prefaces and qualification of a statement work?

  • A Friendly Rejoinder To 'Tesla: Be Ready For A Massive Crash' [View article]
    @jgassel, you seem to be missing the underlying point of Mr Arnold. But before you start thinking of what you will respond to me and gloss over my comments, please read the rest of it below.

    His point was not that Unipixel is a bad investment or should be shorted or anything of that nature - he was not offering an opinion on it whatsoever (although its obvious that you and possibly others could view it that way).

    Rather, his point was simply that one cannot compare the two companies or their situations. So EVEN if Unipixel had excellent management and a much-loved product (I am not trying to suggest that it doesn't, btw), its situation is STILL not comparable to TLSA. Granted, without that statement, Mr Arnold doesn't offer a reason why its different but nevertheless, they are vastly different and Mr Arnold was simply trying to get that across before continuing on the true content of the article which was his counter argument to Mr Eassa's sensationalist article on TSLA's impending demise.

    At the end of the day, that was Mr Arnold's point. It was not to bash Unipixel, but rather much more rudimentary to say that people who have been comparing the two and expecting similar results, should not.

    You can redact his Unipixel comments from this article if you so choose but his central thesis and cogent arguments still hold water with respect to TSLA.

  • ADW Capital Partners, L.P. Seeks Company Review Of Capital Allocation To Maximize Shareholder Value At Outerwall, Inc. [View article]
    Just so I'm clear and for transparency purposes, the author of this contribution is, in fact, Adam Wyden, or at least senior management at ADW Capital? Also, is it possible to confirm that this letter was actually received by the BOD of OUTR?

    While I normally like to take things at face value, the questions raised in the comments impress upon me to use some professional skepticism.

    I don't mean any disrespect but a brand new SA account opens up and purports to be a sizeable stakeholder and posts a fairly confidential letter - I just wish to perform a little due diligence first before accepting it at face value.

    Thanks.

  • Insiders Are Buying Wi-LAN [View article]
    So Markus, are you suggesting that insiders and yourself feel that the company is under/fairly valued at its current price but overvalued at ~4.50?

    VERY INTERESTING! For someone making the bullish case, its hard to feel very bullish with numbers like that. And as bigbadandugly reveals, insider transactions are hardly as reliable as you suggest in your contribution.

  • Insiders Are Buying Wi-LAN [View article]
    Markus, in your opinion, should people trade shares of companies solely based on insider trading? In essence, that was what you responded to gjasick by saying.

    I'm bullish on both stocks due to their specific circumstances but bearish on the NPE industry in general, particularly since Obama feels that this issue should be a priority over stuff like the economy, employment rates, education, health care, foreign policy, etc...

  • City National: Expanding The Franchise And Improving Its Quality [View article]
    Thank you Helix. Its such a shame that hidden gems such as City National are not more readily followed on SA. Too many follow the same old repetitive names out there but there is so much wealth of info floating out in SA. Thanks again for truly looking for diamonds in the rough.
    Very refreshing!

  • Verizon And BCE: Which Is Better? [View article]
    jimsk,

    that is precisely what is being playing out. I called it back in June and its being proven now in August. Little competitors are bought out and big boys steal the show. At the end of the day, prices stay up for Canadian consumers. However the market is still too small to really be a monster catalyst for VZ. Would Canadian penetration be good for VZ's bottom line? Obviously. but it would have a smaller impact than most give it credit for.
