Re: Cancer/Terrorism Teaser My comments will be on Accuray’s CyberKnife. While I don’t own the stock, the CyberKnife was my treatment of choice for Stage 1B-2A lung cancer this past July. In only 5 40-minute treatments, and no accompanying chemo, the tumors were destroyed; as confirmed by a CT Scan in September. I’m witness that this stuff works, period. I will be buying the stock at some point as IMO, it is quite under valued. Varian however, is a good company with good products…I think however it’s a tad overpriced and would consider owning if there were a substantial correction… Read more »

Regarding Oxford’s Teaser for Varian Medical. Travis, this one sure looked familiar. Remembered why – almost the same teaser as back around 2004 when I first discovered Varian and Oxford Club. They just drag these things out of the closet, dust them off, and here we go again. Did buy it in 2004, made small profits, before getting out and keeping some profit – but nothing earth shaking. Strange how they get these things out of the closet – and it does concern me that they don’t have a new yarn to spin. But now, really once again, Varian will… Read more »

I was playing detective to track down this company myself when a Google search spat out your good article.

A quick look at this chart points to why Oxford decided to brush this article off and spam it again.

VAR, appears cheap again to me. Consistently rising earnings and falling ratios.

Even though I have spent 35 years in cancer research, it does not necessarily mean I could figure out which way to spit in a strong wind. Nonetheless, for what it may be worth, I tell all my friends and family, etc. to search out thermography, the heat-detecting form of tissue analysis. All forms of x-ray analysis are cancer-causing, and at least from a research perspective, I can affirm that the literature will continue to call into question both the safety of x-ray analysis as well as radiation treatment. For example, you can kill breast cancer cells (and lung cells)… Read more »

I am first time reader and wonder if you can track down OxfordClub’s newest email concerning a “single shot” Cure for Heat Disease by a tiny company in San Diego. It was tested at Tulane Medical Center. Can you track down this small Bio-Med Company?

I am retired.I lost most of my retirement money in the last three years. [spent some of it ,too]. I don’t want to go near the market in any strong way ever again!! I do have some inherited money coming soon and would like to invest in a stock or two periodically. I don’t have any experience in investing on my own. [my “professional” lost all my other money] How do I start on my own ? I don’t want to screw up but I worry that I don’t know enough to do things right.

folks, is this Sweden deal old news ? If not, could it be considered a groundbreaking (share price shooting) deal ?

I wouldn't buy this stock. Since 2010 over 250,000 shares have been "sold". The CEO, CFO, and just a week ago the Corp VP and Pres of Xray products just unloaded 20,000 shares. They've been selling this stock since 2007 and have never bought. My source is Insidercow.com

CyberKnife radiosurgery — which uses narrow beams of radiation to kill several types of cancer — is marketed as a less invasive, more convenient way to treat prostate cancer, a pitch that has proved convincing for about 3,000 men over the last six years.source florida radiation oncology http://www.sfrollc.com

1.4 million Americans are diagnosed with cancer each year. And more than 1,500 people in the U.S. die from it every day.

“But this one company is doing something about it. No… not a biotech company hoping to make it through Phase III trials, but rather a medical technology firm whose products are actually killing cancer tumors right now in hundreds of hospitals around the world.source florida radiation oncology http://www.sfrollc.com

True indeed, I’ve run across it before but never written about this one — and I’ve seen very similar teasers for Varian going way back to 2002 or 2003, many of the teasers use the same quotes from Dr.’s that are in old Varian Annual Reports.

Look at which way flags are blowing, or hair, or hats off peoples heads. Then spit in the direction they are travelling/pointing. Or if you can feel the wind, wait until it is blowing on your back. Then spit out towards your front. If all this does not work look at the weather report and see which direction the wind is blowing. Keep in mind the wind stated in reports is where the wind is coming from. For example a north wind would mean you should spit in a south direction. If there are any sailors around they can help.… Read more »
