To expound on this a bit....

So we now are on the verge of having equipment that is just as accurate as costly lab testing equipment. Get results in 15 minutes instead of 90 minutes.
Less costly equipment, NO 90 minutes of costly lab time, and more lives saved.

Who do you think will get the lion's share of that $1.2 billion market?

If this is public knowledge, an efficient market has priced it in. You might bet that the market is not acting efficiently, let's say unfounded concerns that claims are exaggerated are lowering the price. I have found you can be late to the party. In other words, speculation can hit something hard early - excessive interest.

I know nothing about this particular stock, and don't recommend one way or the other. But there isn't much point in wondering if it is a good product they are touting; the needed information is whether there have been cold feet up till now, or some hot-to-trot folks.

Given steeldco's sports betting and investing activities, I would say he feels he is capable of outsmarting the market. Or at least he is willing to bet on it :).

I realize that you shouldn't believe this just because I'm stating it, but I will anyway. I have outsmarted the market, over many years. I have not YET replicated it with sports betting.....but I will.

There's the rub. I do not believe that the markets are efficient. Too may factors at play with a bunch of people who think that they can look at pictures (charts) and determine which way a stock is headed.

I can say without hesitation you've had a 9+ year run of luck if in fact those are your returns. Your fundamental analysis is comical…….you actually believe you know where a stock is going……which is a dead giveaway that you have not a clue.:-)

treetopbuddy, I'm ok with your calling it luck. I'd rather have it than not.

Now, what fundamental analysis did I provide to you that was comical, and why?

Your fundamental analysis is fine…..I guess what I'm saying is that your belief that fundamental analysis somehow reveals future stock prices is misguided. Millions of eyeballs are looking at what your looking at……..

Your record keeping for your stock picks, sports picks and horse racing picks is impressive…..I haven't balanced a check book in 30 years.

As Gordon Gekko would say…."tell me something I don't know"…….need the inside scoop. Another Gekko quote…."if your not on the inside your on the outside"

Have you ever tracked unusual option action?
