    Does someone have an opinion on Petroleo Brasileiro (NYSE:pBR)? I think it looks pretty cheap right now.

    I am still trying to decide if I want to dump it or not...Right now I'm up 1500 dollars. I really wish I had put all my liquid funds into the stock haha...but hindsight is always 20/20

    You've got a long wait with this one, GERN is a good play, but you need to put it on the shelf and not worry about it for a few years. Even for compasionate use.

    Yeah thanks again for turning me on to ACT Slopho. I've invested...okay take that back...traded ASTM and GERN before (I somehow knew Kerry would win the debates against Bush, but knew he'd lose the election, so I scalped the stem cell cos back then for a nice little return), but I love ACT's "low hanging fruit" strategy. I'm holding that one no matter what. Not even paying attention to the news anymore, I guess it's my roulette wheel heh.

    The lawsuit issues suck, but I expect to hear great news by years end. The PPS is takiing it on the chin, I'm still plus as my average is just 8cents, but I now can see the light at the end of the tunnel.

    I'm sure the suits = more dilution, but hell, how many shares are outsanding already anyway, 1.5 billion? What's another 300 million to settle all this shit LOL. Like you said, if the science works, it won't matter.

    Oh, it works. The biggest thing that no one is talking about is how ACT has the only PATENTED means or harvesting stem cells without, without...WITHOUT embryo destruction. The news from the EU courts early this month bascially set in motion for ACT to be a monopoly in Europe. As soon as the NIH guidelines come out here in the states it will be the exact same thing. I think too, they've got results with the lowest possible dose. Couple that with my guess that there is some small amount of vision improvement, it will be a serious home run. 1 Brioni suit and 1 Tom Ford suit or just a couple of Oxxfords is what I'll be asking myself soon enough.

    I haven't heard of ACT...is it the same as Active Control Technology? I would like to research more.

    One day I'll be able to +1 this statement, The rally has been nice, I also believe we're turning into a consumer driven rally. When you see headlines like "American Spending up although Income Remains Flat", it gets you thinking. I've heard there may be a 20% rally heading into the end of the year. All I'm saying is....now now is the time to buy NFLX.
