    May I ask your views on PSDV, XOMA?
    Hi chrysaurora !!

    I guess if I'm "liking" your posts the least I could do is answer your questions! I don't know if you have been reading my OT posts but the PSDV trade is one of my favs now. They have $ 1.33/shr in cash, they are entering the US market for the first time, early (Feb 21st, 5 weeks ahead of plan) and that market is huge. There are 270,000 patients in their supply chain who could benefit from their treatment and at $ 8,500/treatment, that's is some huge upside there. Management is the friendliest bunch that I have had the pleasure to deal with in a very long time. There is nothing wrong with this investment accept its price! I want to see $ 8.00 - $ 10.00 this year and I believe that is very reasonable. We will hear about US uptake in the months ahead and they are targeted for 8 more countries soon. What's not to like about this one?

    At the risk of boring everyone with data that is readily available for these companies, I will say that even XOMA is starting to come to life now. It needs to clear its 50-dma ( $ 3.78/shr) and head for its 200-dma. The IBB Index is so close to making a new all time closing high today. The biotech sector is red hot, all of them are moving together and this year is early in their cycle for a rally. Look at ACAD, its on fire, HALO is so close to a 52-week high and you can see the lack of stock at $ 15.00/shr with a huge short position still. You know I could go on talking about healthcare stocks but things are completely aligned for a major rally in these stocks. I see someone asking about SPHS, sorry I missed the name before starting this response, it too is getting setup for the very reason I bought it, to head back up to the $ 1.00/shr mark. Dam it, there was another one, oh, THLD, it is doing extremely well too, so don't sell any of these stocks at the beginning of their rally. HALO is trading at $ 15.00/shr but as of the mid-February time period, I wouldn't sell a share as we know the company is before the FDA to seek labelling changes and fast tracking, if they announce favourable news, the stock will go up in dollar terms. Life is good!

    As for BBRY, I haven't felt so good about BB in a very long time I mentioned in January that BBRY is trading like it is at $ 7.18/shr ( a year ago), there is light volume, no selling, the news is building and Chen is so quiet. The general market is starting to see the benefit of cheap oil and we could see BBRY begin it s long awaited rally. Today we are testing the 50-dma from the topside, usually we trade either side of the 50-dma, or today, $ 10.33/shr but now we are confirming the move above the 50-dma. If we close above it today, and have a higher low tomorrow, say, not to drop below the 50-dma, we are off to the top of the $ 11.10/shr area of resistance.

    One last thing, I have a buddy of mine at the top of the Tesla management group, he is an outstanding business person and very technical, he has been approached by a extremely large mobile phone company in Cupertino to head up a new project, what could it be? I knew about this awhile ago but couldn't comment on it at that time. I guess I might be one of those sources for the type of comments we often hear about BB and "persons of interest" in the news.

    That's it, I hope I mentioned your investments gang! GL

    Thanks, Morgan!

    Unfortunately I sold my 100 THLD at $3.97 I had purchased them at $3.91 and it crashed right after that. So, I had put in a sell-order for $3.97 to get out of it whenever chance presented itself. I forgot to cancel that order at the beginning of this rally.

    I am going to purchase 100 Xoma and 100 PSDV soon (next week, when money reaches my trading account). My trading account is small right now (as I lost a bunch in bbry options last year) but I think if I invest small and make good investments this account will add-up/grow and I'd be able to recoup bbry losses and then some in a couple of years.

    XOMA and PSDV - next week!

    Samsung buys mobile payments company to compete with Apple

    Samsung Electronics has announced the acquisition of the US mobile payments company LoopPay, signalling its intent to take on Apple in the emerging field.

    LoopPay’s system is “accepted at more locations than any competing service”, David Eun, head of Samsung’s Global Innovation Centre, which led the takeover, said in a statement.

    His remark reflected the fact that — unlike Apple Pay, launched in October — LoopPay’s system uses the existing magnetic strip technology already found in most US credit card terminals, meaning that no additional investment by merchants is required.

    Until now, users have had to buy a special phone case or external “dongle” to use LoopPay, which raised early capital through the Kickstarter website in 2013. But its technology’s incorporation in Samsung phones could dramatically increase adoption, setting the stage for a battle of competing payment systems between the world’s two largest smartphone producers.

    Analysts forecast a big increase in in-store payments using mobile devices in the next few years: Forrester, for example, predicts that the US total will grow from $3.7bn last year to $34bn in 2019.

    Near-field communications technology, used by Apple Pay, has been available for over a decade, but its use in mobile payment systems has been held back by retailers’ lack of enthusiasm for upgrading their sales terminals. The huge popularity of Apple’s iPhone has enabled it to push unprecedented adoption of NFC technology by retailers. At its launch, Apple Pay could be used at 220,000 US outlets, ranging from McDonald’s to Toys ‘R’ Us.

    Yet this is a tiny proportion of US shops, while rival systems from Google and PayPal are also not accepted by the vast majority of retailers. In contrast, Samsung claims that LoopPay’s system works in more than 90 per cent of the country’s outlets.

    The acquisition of LoopPay for an undisclosed sum comes ahead of the anticipated launch on March 1 of Samsung’s new flagship smartphone, which had been rumoured to include the US start-up’s payment technology. That speculation will be strengthened by Samsung’s statement on Thursday that its partnership with LoopPay dates at least to last July, when it made a “strategic investment” in the company.

    The buyout follows recent promises from executives to be more aggressive in pursuing takeovers, as Samsung responds to last year’s sharp fall in profit and pressure from investors for higher cash returns. Last August Samsung paid a reported $200m for the US start-up SmartThings, which allows a range of household devices to be controlled through a single mobile app.

    Reports last month that Samsung could acquire the Canadian group BlackBerry were denied by both companies, with Samsung saying it instead intended to make broader use of BlackBerry’s secure communications technology.

    Thanks Corbu,
    I'm so uninformed how NFC works elsewhere but here in Canada one must ne a member of a banking alliance for NFC to work (for payments) on any POS system. The Chartered Banks are so far ahead of everyone on this...they already own the space, hardware and access. Good luck Apple...your games won't work here.

    Oh heck yeah! Ask and you shall receive... just yesterday I was asking for an app that could read security certificates off a common access card (CAC) and alleviate the use of bulky card readers. This just released today:

    I'm w/ Sprint in the U.S. and I always download updated OSes via Sachesi. It's fairly simple and easy to use. I recommend it. Avoid the wait.

    *Edit* All Sachesi updates are Official OS builds that a particular carrier somewhere in the world has officially released. I don't download leaks.
