  • MELA Sciences' (MELA) CEO Rose Crane on Q1 2014 Results - Earnings Call Transcript [View article]
    As a long time investor I just don't know what to think. The Board of Directors is being paid to know "what to think." Without Insurance paying for the test, I believe some patients are perfectly content to go with whatever the Dermotologist says and does. If a biopsey turns out negative, patient is so relieved to hear that, that the pain of the removal of the lesion is "worth it". Without Insurance approval I don't see, at this point, how we will achieve success.

  • Oshkosh's Self-Improvement Efforts Moving The Needle [View article]
    OSK military potential is HUGE. A JLTV win would be over $14 Billion over the life of the contract, 55,000 trucks at $250K each plus armor, plus add-on's. TerraMax and ProPulse are extremely important to our military. Slow introduction of this technology could only increase. I see a the stock heading to the $70's, with a JLTV win. Long OSK.

  • MELA Sciences Management Discusses Q3 2013 Results - Earnings Call Transcript [View article]
    I have asked Mela Sciences to include Military Hospitals, which see hundreds of thousands of Armed Services Members and their families, at home and abroad. The military loves "standards", and MelaFind is a standard, which renders it's own decision.

  • Boeing lands $750M Air Force contract [View news story]
    I wonder if this contract is for modifying some B-1 Lancers into "Air to Air Missile firing B-1's".

  • Jazz rises following $1B deal for Gentium [View news story]
    Gentium Bd of Directors may have helped themselves, but ignored shareholders. You've got to be kidding...$57 per share? We were at $55 already. Congressional investigation is due.

  • FBR talks Jazz deal for Gentium [View news story]
    GENT Bd of Directors did nothing for shareholders. The stock was trading around $55 anyway, so they bale out themselves but ignore the shareholders. Congressional investigation is due. The sale should be abolished and these people hauled into a court of justice.

  • MELA Sciences: A Hidden Gem That Could Bring A Stock Price Double This Year [View article]
    We have an FDA approval of proven technology and the stock is 65 cents-horrid. If there's any advertising money I would suggest some be spent in Ladies Journals and not medical journals. The goal would be to get ladies to demand MelaFind from their derms. Nothing else seems to be working. As an investor, I'm seeing reports of "so much interest at this med show", so much interest in that show....but nobody's buying the system. Am I wrong on this? I hope I'm wrong.What are everyone elses thoughts.

    June 13, 2013, difficult to watch these huge drops on MELA. I wrote the company to ask if they had marketed MelaFind to Military dermatologists...??? Huge opportunity with so many service people at large military base/hospital etc. I just don't know what's happening.

    The market awaits Mela's March 5 earnings report. A report that beats expectations is obviously a good thing, and darn well needed. I'm long Mela and hope for the best.

    Apparently the cost of manufacture is too high, affecting Mela's margins. Mela is working on a cost reduction plan for the machine, as they recently reported.

    Glad to read your MELA commentary. I'm long Mela for 3 years. It works, and it saves lives. Here's hoping the company can manage the launch, as you say. Thanks again.

  • Why Time Is Running Out For Oshkosh [View article]
    Hi Kluge00,

    Looking forward to Oshkosh-Pierce gaining a new influx of Fire Rescue orders. I have this hunch that Oshkosh's ProPulse Diesel Electric Drive may play a role in OSK's prediction for earnings. No Clutch, no transmission, no differential, and a 10-20 percent increase in mileage. Army has 200,000 trucks. As you've indicated with Fire Rescue, many military trucks wearing out too. If each of the 200,000 trucks burns 20 gal of diesel per day, (wild ass guess. but probably low), that's 4 million gal per day. Saving 20% =800,000 gal. @ $4 per gal=$3.2 M per day, or a billion a year. I don't know how likely, but with DOD Sequestration of cutting $500 Billion over 10 years, this may be something that OSK has a good feeling about. One thing for sure, we shall see!

    All manufacturers of Emergency Equipment have seen a sales decline due to poor economic conditions. Pierce Fire Apparatus is considered among the best in quality.
