BLFS Biolife Solutions

2014 preliminary revenue reports solid (IMO) YOY increase but stock down 13%. Anyone see something I don’t? Buying opp as it dips? Thanks in advance? (PS: Couldn’t find an active existing BLFS thread here or behind paywall so posting it here for all.)

Plea for Some Forum self-organizing

Hey — I’ve made this request to SG but we can also self-regulate. Would folks mind creating new threads whenever a new topic comes up? Would folks mind creating a company-specific thread if one does not already exist when a specific company is discussed OR pasting a link to the discussion under the company-specific thread […]

On Biotech Dim Sum: ARTH, CLDN, ESPR, BLRX, GILD and a New Baby Biotech for 2015
Allison L, below, is 100% correct in her interpretation of my remark. No belittling at all, intended or imagined. I simply believe that we should use the SG website as the portal for SG participation so we don't miss the rest of the SG world while we enj[...]
On Biotech Dim Sum: ARTH, CLDN, ESPR, BLRX, GILD and a New Baby Biotech for 2015
Perhaps people are relying on the thread subscriptions far too much rather than using the SG site. New people are on SG asking questions and no one's much there. I love biotech too but I hope we can remember what brung us.[...]

On Microblog: Plea for Some Forum self-organizing
Looked at those links BEFORE posted this plea. Folks aren't following it, thus the need for a simpler system. Can't follow all the posts for stream-of-consciousness like folks with more time can. If it's too difficult for participants to put a little ef[...]

On Friday File Hodgepodge -- Iron, Graphene, Xerox and some ranting
Thanks, Travis, for reminding me to look at my Standard Graphite (DARDF on otc; SGH on TSX.V; formerly Orocan Resources Corp.) stock and my sad little lithium investment, Galaxy Resouces (GALFX on otc; GSY on ASX). Clearly, I am a "battery" investor. Bo[...]

By now, have we noticed that we have OTC version of Till Capital showing up in our accounts instead of TIL.CN? Not exactly what the agreement specified, eh?[...]
On Microblog: AMBCF or Till Capital??
My AMBCF shares just resurrected in my TDAmeritrade account as TIL.CN, which is the stock traded on the TSX.V, I believe. I can't find where I saw it and maybe I imagined it but there was a statement somewhere about the OTC shares being pulled into the de[...]

Oy. I still haven't taken the time needed. I skimmed over the press release that came out late today and didn't have a chance to pull out the white board and attempt to diagram the permutations and combinations of the various deals involved in the reorga[...]
On "What is this building hiding?" Byron King's teased "Miracle Material" stock
Hi, John F, I bought some DARDF last year and have added to my position as a wait-and-see spec. What have you heard about this company recently from your source in the metals/mining industry? Not much news from DARDF since last spring. Heard anything n[...]
On Microblog: Buying SAND are You?
AMBCF didn't sit on that cash from the settlement for long -- I can't describe the byzantine business arrangement after only a quick read but it's worth checking yahoo finance for AMB.TO news, where it trades on the Toronto exchange.[...]
On Microblog: Thoughts on the MFC Industrial (MIL) / Kellogg / IAT situation?
Looks like proxy battle is still on. Kellogg rejected the two seats offered to independent directors by MFC. Still with Travis -- having a hard time deciding course of action. Some indep proxy advisor advised against Kellogg proxy, according to MFC, bu[...]
On Microblog: Thoughts on the MFC Industrial (MIL) / Kellogg / IAT situation?
Josh, supposedly, MIL acquired Compton for far less than its value so the acquisition boosted MIL book value but the deal wasn't favored for reasons that I have not fully explored -- some shareholders believe that Compton had problems when acquired or the [...]

On Microblog: Thoughts on the MFC Industrial (MIL) / Kellogg / IAT situation?
As a reframe of the question, it seems that the proxy issue may be resolved but the question remains as to what you guys/gals think about the Kellogg / IAT interest and the back/forth between MFC's management and it's 30+% shareholder.[...]
On Microblog: Buying SAND are You?
I hear ya! I ended up nearly quadrupling my holding in AMBCF -- it's so low that part of the lawsuit risk is, I hope, priced into the stock now. I held off to let everyone react who was going to react to that lawsuit news. Not saying that others should [...]
