  • Taser International Inc: Price Spike Not Justified By Ferguson Crisis [View article]
    Body cameras are helpful, but here is another thing to consider: had the police used a taser instead of a gun, the young man would still be alive today.

  • Nanosphere: An Unappreciated Growth Story [View article]
    Unfortunately "costs" from the viewpoint of a hospital are actually "revenues". In the US, every insurance company, every hospital, and many doctors want more revenue, not less; longer hospital stays, not shorter.

    I used to have high hopes for NSPH and owned shares, but sold out recently. Their machines just aren't selling. Why? Seems like at every conference call the CEO gives as a reason how difficult and time consuming the red tape is at hospitals.

    I thnk, until the profit motive is removed from our health care system, investing in NSPH is dead money. The US should have gone to a single payer system when we had the chance.

  • Shorting AcelRx Into PDUFA: A Risky Proposition [View article]
    Looks as if the beer squeeze may keep the price around $7.50 for today. Depends on whether shorters will be satisfied with only a 35% gain.
    Share data over the next week will be fascinating to watch.
    Might be worth buying a few shares just to participate in the drama.

  • QR Energy Benefits From The Merger, How About BreitBurn? [View article]
    The Law offices of Wong, et al seem to disagree with you. They evidently think that the shareholders of QRE didn't get a good enough deal and Breitburn made out like bandits. Strange world those lawyers live in.
    Personally, I think this merger move is good for both companies as stated in several other Seeking Alpha articles.

  • Did BreitBurn Get A Good Deal By Acquiring QR Energy? [View article]
    But to take advantage of Texas no income tax, you unfortunately have to live in Texas. Now if only Texas had California's climate and culture . . .

  • Shorting AcelRx Into PDUFA: A Risky Proposition [View article]
    bhtaylor has an interesting hypothesis. I tend to agree.
    7/27 will be an interesting day to watch.
    For me it will be a beer squeeze.

  • Miniaturization Of Spectrometry: The Long Case For Astrotech Corp. [View article]
    Today's announcement re sale of ASTC's space business for $61 million should add $3.08 of value to share price. ($61 mil/19.3 mil shares).
    The ending share price today of $3.12 appears to value 1st Detect at $0.04 per share!
    Is something wrong here or is this just folks not understanding the math?

  • SandRidge Mississippian Trust I: From Weak To Worse [View article]
    You say half empty, Cramer says half full. You both quote the same data.
    Who should we believe? Why?

  • Sunshine Heart: An Elementary Question Reveals A Profound Problem [View article]
    coolhand and conspiracy have 90% of the posts here.
    If they think SSH is such a poor investment, then why should they care so much? What's their motivation?
    Bet they are picking up cheap shares. I see a conspiracy!

  • Sunshine Heart: An Elementary Question Reveals A Profound Problem [View article]
    Using "profound problem" in the article's title puts way too negative a slant on SSH's pace of growth. The trials weren't ever expected to move quickly as the PR for getting docs to sign up patients is just getting started. SSH has always been a long term buy and hold. 2014 will bring good news and results.

  • Capitalizing On Cannabis: An Interview With Robert Frichtel, CEO Of Advanced Cannabis Solutions [View article]
    Alan- Would you please share your thoughts on investing in CANN by buying shares of FULL? Seems like getting paid 9% while waiting for the story to unfold is far less risky than actually buying CANN.
    I appreciate the good questions you asked during the FULL earnings call.

  • Silence Therapeutics A Quieter Name In RNAi [View article]
    I'll stick with ALNY thank you. Has backing from major players. Good entry price today.
    SLNCF too risky and timeline too long for me.
