My estimate is that within 6 months the US will be implanting approximately 15 across 5 hospitals a week as destination therapy. The first 10 will show it is safe. Then you are looking at this as direct replacement for the Thoratec, but a better and safer device. If you look at the output of the Thoratec at the moment, it is easy to step this in as an easy replacement. There are hundreds/thousands waiting or dying for this device. Numbers are easy. Implantation is easier than Thoratec also.

 

Then we will have roughly in 18 months, approval for both DT and BT. The first ever device in the world with such approval.

one cannot compare the population of US to that of Australia.

Our specialists all train overseas because there is a lack of population here for them to learn on. It usually takes 2 yrs specialist training here then 2 - 3 yrs extra training overseas where there are numbers to learn on.

Hence the need to go overseas with the trial. There is no way we can supply, with our small population the numbers needed to prove whether the device works.

It is possible they can do 100 implants in a year in the US. Perhaps even less time.

Price action looks a bit doji-ish. Bounced at 1.21, nobody could have predicted that lol.

 

I would like to see a close over 1.30 to show promising strength.

 

The AFR article was a good one but none of this is news, everyone knows all this, nobody cares. News means SOMETHING NEW. Not updates of progress as usual, not reminders that it is the anniversary of xyz event, not forecasts that things are waaay in the future.

 

If it gets over $1.40 then that is a new uptrend in my opinion, that is quite a way up though. We are sitting on support and if it fails, down she goes. The best thing to do in this situation is buy at any price and hold for years no matter what happens, and ignore all price movements. You canÃÆâ€â„¢ÃƒÆ’ƒâہ¡ÃƒÆ’‚¢ÃƒÆ’¢Ã¢Ã¢Ã¢Ã¢â€š¬Ã…¡Ãƒâ€šÃ‚¬ÃƒÆ’…¡Ãƒâہ¡ÃƒÆ’‚¬ÃƒÆ’¢Ã¢Ã¢Ã¢Ã¢â€š¬Ã…¡Ãƒâ€šÃ‚¬ÃƒÆ’…¾Ãƒâہ¡ÃƒÆ’‚¢t lose doing that.

that is exactly what I am a long term holder

i congratulate those who can daytrade it, but I reckon it is being manipulated lately.

It got sold off hard y'day just on the eve of that article in AFR. Now, quite a few people would have known that article was coming out today!@

Im a cynic though

A lot you you people look into something more than is really there. The stock was simply overbought and had what many refer to as a corection or short term pullback, support on my chart is around $1.20 anything above that is a buy especially around current levels.

I only ever trade on a weekly chart, that way I do not get swayed buy the day to day price swings of volitile stocks and this thing is still a buy on my weekly chart, I think it won't take long to be back to $1.70, buy low and sell high.

Protrader I agree, I donÃÆâ€â„¢ÃƒÆ’ƒâہ¡ÃƒÆ’‚¢ÃƒÆ’¢Ã¢Ã¢Ã¢Ã¢â€š¬Ã…¡Ãƒâ€šÃ‚¬ÃƒÆ’…¡Ãƒâہ¡ÃƒÆ’‚¬ÃƒÆ’¢Ã¢Ã¢Ã¢Ã¢â€š¬Ã…¡Ãƒâ€šÃ‚¬ÃƒÆ’…¾Ãƒâہ¡ÃƒÆ’‚¢t think anyone is looking into anything too deeply. I donÃÆâ€â„¢ÃƒÆ’ƒâہ¡ÃƒÆ’‚¢ÃƒÆ’¢Ã¢Ã¢Ã¢Ã¢â€š¬Ã…¡Ãƒâ€šÃ‚¬ÃƒÆ’…¡Ãƒâہ¡ÃƒÆ’‚¬ÃƒÆ’¢Ã¢Ã¢Ã¢Ã¢â€š¬Ã…¡Ãƒâ€šÃ‚¬ÃƒÆ’…¾Ãƒâہ¡ÃƒÆ’‚¢t think anyone here is negative about VCR or bearish, I certainly am not, I just think it is tenuously in this support zone and could fall a bit further ÃÆâ€â„¢ÃƒÆ’ƒâہ¡ÃƒÆ’‚¢ÃƒÆ’¢Ã¢Ã¢Ã¢Ã¢â€š¬Ã…¡Ãƒâ€šÃ‚¬ÃƒÆ’…¡Ãƒâہ¡ÃƒÆ’‚¬ÃƒÆ’¢Ã¢Ã¢Ã¢Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ã‚¬Ãƒâ€¦Ã‚¡ÃƒÆ’‚¬Ãƒâ€Â¦ÃƒÆ’¢Ã¢Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ã‚¬Ãƒâ€¦Ã¢â‚¬Å“ note I said COULD ÃÆâ€â„¢ÃƒÆ’ƒâہ¡ÃƒÆ’‚¢ÃƒÆ’¢Ã¢Ã¢Ã¢Ã¢â€š¬Ã…¡Ãƒâ€šÃ‚¬ÃƒÆ’…¡Ãƒâہ¡ÃƒÆ’‚¬ÃƒÆ’¢Ã¢Ã¢Ã¢Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ã‚¬Ãƒâ€¦Ã‚¡ÃƒÆ’‚¬Ãƒâ€Â¦ÃƒÆ’¢Ã¢Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ã‚¬Ãƒâ€¦Ã¢â‚¬Å“ when it starts rising again, that is the time to buy (as opposed to just buying in the support zone and hoping it will be OK, although that is a good plan if not in a hurry and with a stop loss. Nothing worse than buying in support zone then letting it fall another 20% due to no stop loss).

 

I also agree with the use of the weekly chart, it is a good filter.

 

We are still in the upper zone of the movement. There are many positives from a longer term perspective.

 

BUT look at the price, down for days now, day after day less and less, show me the logic of buying at any price and holding forever, that some seem to advise. Show me the wisdom of holding through the rise to 1.70 and back again to 1.25 ÃÆâ€â„¢ÃƒÆ’ƒâہ¡ÃƒÆ’‚¢ÃƒÆ’¢Ã¢Ã¢Ã¢Ã¢â€š¬Ã…¡Ãƒâ€šÃ‚¬ÃƒÆ’…¡Ãƒâہ¡ÃƒÆ’‚¬ÃƒÆ’â€Å¡Ãƒƒâہ¡ÃƒÆ’‚¦ show me the benefits of that strategy. Sure it is only a 26% retracement, but then again, IT IS A 26% retracement I would prefer not holding. Sure it might get back t o$1.70 in a couple of weeks, but it might get down to $1.10 or less first. It is tenuous at best.

 

See if it can get some buyers in on Monday.

Hi Oavde. When PSD fell to 0.50 I thought there was no way it could stay that low. There was no rational reason for it to be sold off that much. Biotechs generally were getting hammered, and it was unlikely that it would last. So, I hung on and bought just above 0.50 rather than sold, and now it's near 0.80. Anyway, that's just an example of why you might hang on during a steep fall.

70.5 -->172 trough to peak. Fibonnacci retracement -50% = 121.5, -62% = 109...and support lines to watch also. 25 July is equal to time distance from 85 -->172...... Just big picture coincidences that might play out? Good luck all. Aegis valuation 92c may also play out?
