Or another view :

We really should be grateful to our Board for dumping for this once rapidly-growing, dividend-producing, company with a world monopoly on the foremost Latent TB test, and taking it off our hands for a pitance of a consideration just before it is about to run out of steam and become totally worthless. hA Ha! Boy, we were dumb! We didn't even realise what a turkey we bought ourselves. Wow. We sure were stupid! ( For believing all the BS )

With approx 31 cents of our money for each of our shares in the bank we should expect a nice Final Dividend once the SOA is buried.

Nice to get some important information from our managers.

One question I would have asked is why after a number of years, both publicly at AGMs and also in talks with individual shareholders, the principals stressed that the company was not for sale, full stop.


JB, as outlined by EB above.

I would add someone on the Board with persistence that sticks to their word... what an old fashioned silly concept.

I will not be wasting my time with the webcast as why should I put any trust in what comes out of their mouth now ???

Online Voting.
When does CSAG expect it's members to vote online and deliver at least a 25% no vote?
It seems odd that 38% of shareholders have managed to electronically communicate their intention to vote know to CSAG, but those same shareholders have delayed in voting no online?


OK Squiggs now is the time to put up or shut up.

I think the price is too low, for a bunch of reasons I've already been through. But I don't think the 2Rs are dishonest or incompetent, quite the contrary.

But what if this is as good as it gets for this company and there are serious headwinds ahead that neither you nor I have thought of? What would you think of them then?


Below is from an article re the Centro Group. This is used as an example only as even in the view of a judge directors can appear to act honestly but they may be wanting in other areas of their responsibliity.

I totally agree we need to show respect until we know all of the facts. I also understand that when people invest in a business they are investing in their future, so when they are confronted by a backflip or U turn from what they understood to be truthful over a number of years, there may be some emotion involved.


If the headwinds are that serious, were they asleep at the wheel ?? I thought the good ship CST was sturdy vessel, now we are told to abondon ship and take to the liferafts. Very strange.

If management is serious about shareholders making an informed decision on the SOA it is essentiial we have the 2011 FY figures.
We are the current owners of CST and I trust our management have not forgotten where their loyalties and obligations should be.

With approx $ 30 million in the bank by now ( my guess ) that is 0.31 cents per share of our money $ 3.55 minus 0.31 = $ 3.24 offer. How generous !!

TUBERCULOSIS testing company Cellestis has dismissed a group of shareholders opposed to a $341 million takeover bid as beating up ''dreams, suppositions and wild fantasies''.


I have been misled. Plain and simple.

Over the years I have read on this site and others reports and notes from those that have attended the AGMs and Investor briefings.
These notes of what has been said by the management of CST ( I was going to say "our" management but I hold no trust for our Board any longer as it is clear I cannot believe what they say ) these notes were not written by hysterical school children at a pop concert but a factual representation of what was said. So now after us believing the company of Cellestis we are now a mob of "dreamers, suppossers and fantasisers"

What we have now is not a hostile takeover by Qiagen but a hostile takeover by the shareholders / part owners of a business that in their view have been misled by the managers of our business.

Rule No 1 ) Do not do business with anyone you do not trust.
Rule No 2 ) Do not do anything with anyone you do not trust.

The previous CST is finished, what the new one will hold, or the SP goes up or down is unknown, but one thing for sure, we will not have to put up with those that we can no longer trust.

Any idea on what is would cost for a company like Deloites to prepare an Experts Report on CST ? I would imagine it would cost a bit to become an Expert on a ten year old business in such a short time frame.

As soon as they floated CST and asked for other peoples money it was NEVER "THEIR" business. I think this is the dumb arrogant attitude that has got up the wick of so many of the OTHER CST business owners.

In fact the two Rs are minority part owners of CST. If you suggest they have treated CST at THEIR business then you are suggesting they have been negligent in their duty as Board members and directors of OUR business.

In my view as the two Rs are paving their way to a benifit ( employment with Qiagen ) that no other shareholder and part business owner is entitled to under the SOA they should not be part of the vote when it happens. i.e. conflict of interest.

Below is from the Chairmans address in the 2010 Annual Report. What is the truth here ?? Surely those on the Board of our business do not think they can tell us one thing, then just a few months later say "too bad" we were wrong get rid of this business.

It should have read: Being a very junior research partner to a large international healthcare group will never provide success for a select few until we get rid of the *roadkill.

*Borrowing a description from CSAG

It has been a challenging yet rewarding

decade.

Cellestis has always held firm to the belief that

we had to differ from the traditional Australian

biotech paradigm; that being a very junior

research partner to a large international

healthcare group would never provide success,

and thus we knew that we had to establish a

direct presence in key overseas markets.

Revenue grew in 2010 despite the negative

effects of the strengthening Australian dollar

and the significant H1N1 distraction for our

customers and relevant regulatory bodies. In

local currency terms over the previous year,

our USA segment revenue grew by 49%,

Europe by 31% and the Japan/ Australia

segment grew by 8%, for an average 17%

in total growth. The US growth is particularly

significant, as it is our single biggest individual

national market, it is showing greater general

acceptance of QFT, and continues to have

great market potential.

I am sure there is much going on behind the scene by an extremly dedicated group of CST business owners, and I thank you for it.

Any small group of minority shareholders that has a complete disregard for the majority of what had been loyal part owners of a business deserve nothing but the contempt thay have shown to others.

Their Golden Parachute may have a few holes in it.

By the time the vote is taken there could be $ 28 Million +/- in the bank, this divided by 96 Million shares = 29 cents per share that we already own.

One of the most offensive things to me is those that have put this "scheme" forward with no consultation with the majority shareholders ( i.e. us ) have secured their furure with the ongoing involvement with our business and we are told to bugger off with $3.55 and be grateful. Thank you but no thanks.

Hi Squiggs

Before the "Scheme" Radford & Assoc had 11,449,690 Shares, Rothel & Assoc 11,449,689 Shares with a 10 cent Full Franked Dividend ( with the growth rates provided by OUR Directors and Board, this would have been possible sooner rather than later ) this is $1,144,960.00 per year plus their wages or $ 22,018.63 per week in dividends alone.

No doubt they would have put in a huge effort to get CST to where it is but they could not have done it without the support of the loyal shareholders.

What is the Market Rates for Directors you allude to ?

We do not know what benefit the two "Rs" will have in the future, as in the "Scheme" as I understand it they will be in the employ of Qiagen if and when they dump us.

This is an aspect that I ponder, how can two shareholders / Board Members come up with a "Scheme" that gives them a clear ongoing involvment and no doubt considerable benefit but specifically excludes all other shareholders ???

Another point raised is that we as part owners of all that is CST have been told or assured the business would not be up for sale or were not given any indication that would let us and many others base their investment decisions on full and frank disclosure.

All of this is most interesting, and like many others I just can't wait until the movie or the book comes out !!!

Qiagen have only been here since 2008. It is a nice easy drive from Doncaster to Carnegie or Chadstone.

What a strange stroke of luck that Qiagen and CST are in the same city, just a short drive away. Wonder how long it has been since the people that are charged with looking our interests have known about this scheme ??.

The following is from "The Age" Business section. The statement from Ron Pitcher shows how far out of touch the Board is with their own shareholders. It should read " For the Directors and others that got the shares for a few cents each and as some of these people will continue to benifit from the on going success of the QuantiFeron technology others that believed in and invested in this business, well bad luck. No wonder so many of us now have complete contempt for those that used our trust, goodwill and money so efficiently.

The signature of one of our posters is "Remember the Golden Rule..the ones with the gold make the rules." Well there is another saying "You only have one reputation" As one of our previous Prime Ministers said " You may well say God Save the Queen " The bit I will add is " Because nothing will save the reputation ( in my view ) of these people"

The Age Monday 4t April, 2011

"After careful consideration, the Cellestis board has unanimously concluded that the offer represents an attractive price for Cellestis and provides shareholders with an opportunity to realise considerable value from their investment in Cellestis," Cellestis chairman Ron Pitcher said.

"The offer price recognises the significant value within Cellestis Quantiferon technology, which the management team and staff at Cellestis have developed into a global leading technology in the diagnosis of latent tuberculosis."

The scheme is subject to certain conditions, including Cellestis shareholder approval, regulatory and court approvals, and an independent expert's opinion that the scheme is in the best interests of Cellestis shareholders.

Sample technologies are used to isolate and process DNA, RNA and proteins from biological samples such as blood or tissue.

Assay technologies are used to make such isolated bio-molecules visible.

Qiagen said the acquisition of Cellestis would provide it with exclusive access to Cellestis' Quantiferon technology for high-sensitivity, early disease detection not possible with other diagnostic approaches.

It is good that there seems to be a change in sentiment regarding CST. Lets hope it is a long term re-evaluation of CST as a business and not just a short term spike in the SP.

This is a post by Martin on another site.

UK’s NICE Recommend replacing Mantoux with TB blood tests for Key Patient Groups

Oxford, UK, 24 March 2011

The National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence (NICE) released new clinical guidelines for the use of innovative TB blood tests called interferon-gamma release assays (IGRAs) for diagnosing latent tuberculosis infection (LTBI) on 24th March 2011.

Previous guidelines for diagnosis of LTBI released by NICE in 2006 recommended the use of a two step approach, starting with the Mantoux skin test and then only using IGRAs to confirm positive results.

In recognition of the mounting clinical evidence in favour of IGRA technology, the new guidelines recommend going straight to an IGRA test in a number of specified indications including:

•In an outbreak situation when large numbers of individuals may need to be screened
•Recent arrivals from high incidence countries who are from 16 to 34 years old
•The immunocompromised and some HIV subjects
•New NHS employees who have recently arrived from high incidence countries or who have had contact with patients in a setting where TB is highly prevalent
•Hard to reach populations

In addition, the new guidelines recommend that an IGRA test be considered for initial use in individuals for whom Mantoux testing may be less reliable, such as those who have been BCG vaccinated, and for use in individuals whose Mantoux test result is positive.

These interventions are designed to identify subjects with LTBI so that they can be treated before they convert to active disease. This proactive approach will help to reduce the rates of active TB disease in the UK which have been rising over the past decade.

Until recently, the only test available to identify LTBI has been the Mantoux skin test which has been used for over 100 years and suffers from a variety of problems such as a high false negative rate amongst the immunocompromised and a high false positive rate amongst those who have been BCG vaccinated. The new IGRA tests recommended in these guidelines have been designed to overcome the deficiencies of the Mantoux test.

Oxford Immunotec Chief Executive, Peter Wrighton-Smith commented:

“I very much welcome the new guidelines from NICE which recognise the superior accuracy and convenience of IGRA testing in many populations. I am optimistic that the adoption of these guidelines will help to reverse the steadily increasing rates of TB seen in the UK over the past decade.”

But I think it is already regarded as boring by the market and remember the market is made up of people that form opinions one way or the other and they might regards CST as a "gunna" stock. Gunna be a world leader in TB diagnostic, gunna realease new diagnostics, gunna have 40% growth year on year, after 10 years of gunna for a 2 cent divvy..yawn. We have short attention spans now. I think it will take a definite something rather than another gunna to light this fire.

And yes I think it is gunna be a great business eventually, actually it is now but don't tell anyone. Now I will finish fixing the sock draw.

Friends, it is my melancholy duty to inform you that your investment needs you.

Now that investors have our investment where they want it, down 29% in a year and 18 trades today falling over themself for
$74000.00 woth of stock, this is not a time to snipe at each other. We have to get behind each other and pull together as this is supposed to be a SHAG ( Share Holder Agreement Group ) We know that WE HAVE INVESTED IN A WORLD BIOTECH BUSINESS THAT IS GROWING AT 30 TO 40 % A YEAR. WE ARE NOT SUPPOSED TO QUESTION.

In approx a week the Half Year results will be out and the hords of people waiting on the sidelines will make all in the world as it should be.

I hope Sir Les Patterson applies for the Marketing position, at least we will have a laugh.

Hello MM

I have given up trying to guess the SP of any stock but the comparison of COH and CST makes an interesting discussion.

Will not be long and we will have the half year details which should give us an indication of sales post CDC Guidelines & high AUD.

As noted by BM, in the Prospectus there were claims of other products or diagnostics that would use the QuantiFeron Platform, I think after 10 years+ some got tired of waiting. There is CMV and I am sure there will be others eventually...soon ? The finger prick device that was mentioned many moons ago when it was lodged for Patent is in the background, I still keep wondering what this could be about, maybe nothing but I do not imagine the good Docs doing anything just for the sake of filling in paperwork.

QFT-TB has or is being laid down as a good solid base for CST, with the future release of other products you would only need one "blockbuster" and.... As with all things,time will tell.

Hi BM

Where did you get the information re possible product recall ?

From your other observation re CST going South, this does seem perplexing. We have had the real What If Brigade saying for years that CST is an international biotech business and every time a mouse farts in CST-land it is reported by well doers on some site or another, yet today worldwide there is only 15 buyers willing to stump up a total of A$94,000.00 ( 15 Buyers on Comsec for a total of 41753 Shares at approx $ 2.25 each) to buy into this wonderful international investment / business. My only conclusion is that people just do not believe the story. Interesting.

By the way I do appreciate the posts etc on developments, uptake etc re QFT and other CST news. I find the total lack of sentiment for CST interesting...but will not loose sleep over it....

Hi H

The example and point I was trying to make is that people might have to sell for a variety of reasons, so the share price is important to them. Just because a situation might not affect me does not mean others do not have a valid reason to mention the share price.

With all of the words, posts, graphs and on and on it all comes down to one word "sentiment" Of course like all of us I could be wrong but CST at this point in time generates about as much sentiment as the Christmas Day prawn heads. We claim this is an international business that "has done well" yet on Commsec there is 20 buyers for a total of 80094 shares so there might be a few amongst the other 6 billion on the planet that think the mob has not done too well. Of course this could change at any point in time when sentiment changes and a few more think CST is worth buying.

I have a modest holding in CST ,am not selling and will take responsibility for my decisions just as we all should, including blog posters, managers, company directors or anyone else as I assume responsibility is not only for those that mention the share price.

Cheers

Share price ??

I do not understand this load of cobblers re why we should not mention the share price ?

If a person puchased some bits of paper in Dec 2001 for $ 2.70..9 years ago
Feb 2005 for $ 4.00.. 6 years ago
Nov 2005 for $ 3.00..5 years ago
If you HAD to sell on Monday you might get $2.40 to $ 2.45 What is wrong with saying "gee this mob hasn't done too well"
There might be a case when people have to sell, death, illness. unemployment...human factors, stuff not done in spreadsheets or predictives.

The above does not indicate a Trader wanting a quick trade, but an investor, investing in what might be a good "business". If this person read some of the postings on this site over the years with hype, blurb, predictives,contests,spreadsheets etc etc by posters they thought knew what they were talking about, and now if they mention the share price.... many of those same posters say "tut tut I'm a sophisticated investor the share price is nothing to me, it is about the business " What a load of cobblers !!!

The share price means something to me as investing is the one thing where I want my cake and eat it too. i.e. increasing share price AND increasing dividends from the investment.

Cheers

Not sure what you mention about CST makes a difference .....boring. We have heard it all before...yawn.

This is how CST is judged now. CST is like visiting your old uncle that has the browm leather pathces on his coat. A good bloke that will not give you any problems and when you have afternoon tea you will get stale butternut snap buscuits that have been in the cupboard for years. You sort of wish he was having a fling with a 23 year old lap dancer, just so you could have a smile and think, I didn't know the old fart had it in him.

Down 29% from this time last year. Some investment. Cripes, don't mention the share price.

When some of the hype and blue sky that floated around on this site comes to pass, or the sales increase, or we get more dividends, or some of the new diagnostics actually happen, I will send my uncle a Christmas card and tell him he is a good bloke.

We humans are a strange mob.

It was not that long ago there were many posters putting down their sage words on CST.

Trouble is some people actually believed what they read more than they should have. Remember this was the CST Shareholder Agreement Group, or SHAG.

Do not put all your faith in graphs charts or predictives on this type of blog. Do your own research and make up your own mind, then if you put your money down and feel shagged at some time in the future, it is your responsibility. Good luck.

There has been an abundace of words graphs and predictives written on this site and others about CST. I have been impressed by the posters and the obvious passion for CST.

It seems that it all comes down to just three words :

Invest : To lay out money or capital in an enterprise by purchasing shares with the expectation of profit. ( so far so good )

Sentiment: A thought opinion or attitude. ( OK, so how does this happen )

Substance: The tangible basic matter of which a thing consists..solid or meaningful quality. Umm.

If you do not know or understand the substance of anything it will affect your opinion. CST seems to be a classic case of lack of confidence ( sentiment ) and I can only guess it is because the message re the substance of CST has not been handled well by those that manage our business.

Yeah, another keyboard expert.

Hello D'Lids

Deligthed that you have joined the CST group.

"and if that means investing in the business rather than paying dividends then so be it."

Might have agreed once, but now I have gone past any feelings for this investment other then seeing the $$ signs in the form of a return on my investment. Yeah, know all about all the peer reviews, CDC, possible this and possible that...just show me the money.

I have expectation fatigue, judging by the interest in the stock I may not be the only one. Don't get me wrong, I think this little Aussie battler has got what it takes....just give me some of it now.

Hi IP & H

July 17th, 2009 saw one of the biggest jumps in SP for CST, up 44 cents for the day. Probably as you say in anticipation of the FY Results, or Premature Expectation Greed.

Think the smart investors have their money in the bank at 6 % and when they see this business is growing earnings and dividend then they will invest on fact rather than just more talk. That aside it appears someone has been building a large holding over the past few weeks.

Could be wrong on all of the above, but the SP is the same as it was a year ago, make of that what you will. Supply and lack of demand ??.......at this point in time.

"I wonder what peoples expectations are for the PFR?" Improvement.

Improved Sales.
Improved Earnings.
Improved Dividend.

Now that the looooooooooooooooooooooooooooong awaited CDC Guidelines are out, along with what I have seen on Rogs and young Forrests site I think we have reached the mythical tipping point.

We have been pushing this snowball uphill, it now looks like it is ready to start rolling down to gather some real mass.

Hello BM

From the Cellestis page on QuantiFERON-CMV it appears this product does not have FDA approval. I do not know what this may mean in the case of CMV, but it appears FDA approval is something that businesses like Cellestis seek for their products.


"Disclaimer


QuantiFERON-CMV is CE Marked for commercial use in Europe. QuantiFERON-CMV is not US FDA-approved and is available for investigational use only in the US. QF-CMV is not a test for CMV infection."

From the 2008 AGM my notes say: CMV Publication realease soon. Are the details in the post by drrc it ??

The 10 to 12 Million dollars per annum indicated in Malta's post is a welcome addition to the earnings, and is another product for Cellestis. What will be next ? Who knows, there might be a time when the TB product is not the main game.

As it has been said, Patience is a virtue. In regard to CST, no doubt I am a virtuous person.

It is a good day to remember and give thanks to those that did so much more than rabbit on in internet sites. Maybe the wait while we commentators put this CST jigsaw puzzle together, is not that important.

Have a good day

Hi Puzzled

Have given up trying to guess what might happen as far as stocks go. I do not doubt CST has the substance but think people are waiting for the "show me the money" phase.

CST closed today at around the same level it was in October 2004, bit beyond the attention span of most stock buyers. Might seem like a slack statement but have an idea that most visionaries are about 12 years ahead of the mob. CST has been around since early 2001 ( I think ) so those that have stuck with it over the years might be very happy by 2013. Not long to go.

So far it has only been about TB, what will be next ??

It has been, and no doubt will continue to be an intertesting journey.

Finger Prick Device, this is not a new thing in itself. Understand this type of device is used by diabetics daily.

So why would CST Patent something similar ? Can't imagine it is just for infants i.e. draw less blood.

From what is posted here think it is fair to say those that manage / guide CST run lean. Just can't imagine them doing anything for little or no reason. So why ?

No doubt we are all waiting for the long awaited updated CDC guidelines.

Guess I have been around just that bit too long to expect anything from forecasts...show me the real things that happen.

How Mr Market will look at the CDC update is another guess, but no doubt CST keeps gathering momentum and eventually that elusive "tipping point" will happen.

I keep wondering what's up with the reason behind the Patent of the Finger Prick Device. Could be something interesting cooking there ???

Hello FJ & all

If you got in around $1.60 and sold around $3.50 you have 110 to 120% gain and you think you can do better ?

I wish you good luck but I would like to know what you will buy now.

The subject of liquidity keeps coming up and I note COH today had 4790 trades on 274386 shares. It closed just above $ 65.00. COH has 55 million shares just over half of CST. Can someone please tell me why CST will be any different. To me if you want to buy something you pay what someone will sell it for. If there is anyone out there that wants to buy several hundreds of thousands of CST shares then put your money on the table and make a bid. The same if someone wants to sell the same amount put them on the board at your price and see what happens.

Remember what Confucius said about trying to guess the future volume of shares traded:

Boy and girl who go on camping holiday will surely have naughty intent.

Fellow speculators, lend me your insecurities,

On this day last year 29-9-08 CST closed at $ 2.06.
On 30-9-08 Wall street went down 777 points.
CST went up 9 cents to the dizzy heights of $ 2.15
Over the following two weeks it hovered around $ 2.00..$2.05..$2.08
On Monday 13-10-08 it went up 14 cents to close at $2.22
On Tuesday 14-10-08 it went up 36 cents to close at $2.58
On Wednesday 15-10-08 it went down 28 cents to close at $2.30
On Thursday it went down 26 cents to close at $2.04
With all of this upping and downing in the SP we are still up ( the SP ) 65% in a year.
There is only two sure things from now until this time next year, we will be talking about the SP and CST will be doing what is does best.

Yeah, just another boring Monday with the dilemma on how to ride a one-trick pony.

Think tomorrow may be an interesting day for CST.

Close at a year high, speculation re the report. Will it hold or advance beyond the $ 4.00 mark ?

Keep thinking about the AdAlta thing.

Under the agreement AdAlta will identify peptide binders from AdAlta’s proprietary peptide library

specific for a Cellestis target. If successful, it is planned to incorporate the peptide binders into

Cellestis diagnostic test(s).

Seems very specific, not just if they find something that may work with a CST diagnostic ??? Some entirly new test perhaps ??
If you are like me and don't have a life while you await the report, Google: Peptide Binders.

Er, it will give you an insight into the never ending possibilties of the business we have invested in.

May not be a question of how much blue sky in CST, but, how much universe ?

EM,

Thanks for the link. Damn that is interesting.

The quote re shark handlers is almost like a Monty Python sketch.

Might be another piece of the puzzle. Finger Prick Device + AdAlta trials + I wonder how long it will be before we start to see mention of nanotechnology in the CST posts ?

Friends,

I have to come to the CST post, cap in hand, eating humble pie as I had no idea there was such a large group of investors that based their buying decisions by the names on the Register.

After much Binging I found the following information: These investors are called Flockers. i.e. they buy according to what the flock do.

There has even been a documentary made explaining how they operate. It is called Meet the Flockers. As soon as I was aware of this I went straight to the DVD store and as luck would have it found a copy in the bottom of the reject bin...50 cents what a bargain.

I will not bore you with all of the details and I do not want to spoil it for those that may get their own copy of Meet the Flockers.

Anyway, Flockers look for certain names. For some reason Warren and Charlie seem to mean a good buy but Alan or Christopher seem to mean be careful.

They also look for any names that may be members of any club the Flocker may belong to. If the Flocker is at the bowls club and Jim Warren Anchor lets them know he has shares in XYS the Flocker wants to puff his or her chest out and say " So do I "

Most of the Flockers in the documentary wore white shoes or sandles with long socks, even the men. Is this the white shoe brigade from QLD? Shades of the 1970's.

With Privacy Laws they way they are I am surprised that any organisation can give private details to other shareholders. I would not want any Flocker knowing my details.

DISCLAIMER: Names, Places and Dates have been changed, so any similarity to any Flocker large or skinny is purely coincidental.

Hello all,

I am reading The Snowball, Warren Buffett and the Business of Life.

On page 265 there is a quote that I hope applies to our little Aussies battler as it morphs to an Aussie rocket:

Buffett would later write to the partners that buying " the right company ( with the right prospects, inherent industry conditions, management, etc ) means the price will take care of itself...This is what causes the cash register to really sing. However, it is an infrequent occurrence, as insights usually are, and of course, no insight is required on the quantitative side --- the figures should hit you over the head with a baseball bat. So the really big money tends to be made by investors who are right on the qualitative decisions "

There was movement at the ASX as the word had passed around
That the shares from old CST had got away
And had joined the profitable biotechs....it was worth buying now,
So all the cracks had gathered to the fray.
All the tried and noted investors from the brokers near and far
Had mustered at Comsec overnight,
For the investors love hard buying where the good investments are,
And the traders snuffs the opportunity with delight.

Apologies to the Banjo !

There seems to be some accumulating going on.

Hello Draughtsman,

I think the Cochlear comparison is a good one.

At the open this morning COH had 282 Buyers for 95,542 Shares and 73 Sellers with 37,056 Shares.
At the end of trading today ther were 5425 Trades for 519,606 Shares, in a range of $ 53.59 to $ 54.66.
At the close there were 302 Buyers for 136,405 Shares and 108 Sellers with 84,886 Shares.

It is interesting how the Buyers and Sellers just keep coming out of the woodwork.

When CST is over $ 50.00 I do not see why it will not trade in a similar way.

As a side note, one "A" share in Berkshire Hathaway, NYSE Code BRKA yesterday closed at US $ 91,750.08 on a volume of 802 for the day !
If you have quality don't think you have to worry about minor side issues.

Cheers,

OFD,

You may well be correct, but to go all the effort for testing children < 5 ?

CST is a biotechnology business, nanothecnology is another emerging science. If CST were ever to acquire / develop a nanotechnology business imagine if a Finger Prick Device, or any other device, could take the sample and give a result ? This may not be used by or only for the TB Test. CST are working on other diagnostics. As ciabatta points out something similar is used every day by diabetics.


I may be talking total rubbish, as with all things, time will tell.

Hello Forrest,

I agree with you on the Share Price in that I am not interested in what a group of people are prepared to pay for a bit of paper in relation to what they think or don't think a business is worth, but I am very interested in the Share Price from an investment point of view. i.e. I want my cake, and eat it too, where investments are concerned. If I am only worried about earning 2, 4 or 6 % I would leave my money in the bank.

On Thursday 17th July, 2008 CST closed at $ 2.26, today it closed at $ 3.11 a 37.5 % gain in one year. No crystal ball but CST could be $ 5.00 or $ 6.00 ++++++ this time next year plus our dividend. Another 30, 40 or 60% increase in the Share Price plus the dividend will do me.

The price I put on the excitment of watching the little Aussie battler becoming a world beater..... well thats a hard one.

Regards or woof, woof,

Anyone give a reason why CST will not be the same ?

QUEENSLAND health authorities are monitoring a planeload of Qantas passengers after a bungle allowed a tuberculosis patient aboard.

Authorities have admitted the man should never have been allowed to travel on the commercial flight from Cairns to the Torres Strait.

An investigation is underway but Cairns and Hinterland Health Service District chief executive Julie Hartley-Jones has already pointed to human error as the likely cause of the blunder.

The man, who was returning to Thursday Island last week after two months of treatment at Cairns Base Hospital, should have been sent home on a Flying Doctors Service plane, she said.

"This has been a major breakdown in our normal processes and procedures for the transport of patients between facilities," Ms Hartley-Jones said.

"We have already started investigating how it happened with a view to ensuring it never happens again. We deeply regret this incident and the understandable anxiety this will cause to other passengers and crew aboard the flight."

Cairns Base Hospital director of thoracic medicine Dr Graham Simpson said the risk to passengers and crew was minimal.

"Short-term, one-off exposure, such as a two-hour flight, is not generally sufficient to result in any infection," Dr Simpson said.

"Most people who become infected have experienced exposure to TB over a prolonged period of time."

Queensland Health has urged anyone on the 8am flight from Cairns to Horn Island on Thursday, June 11 who is concerned about possible exposure to contact Cairns Base Hospital.

How many elephants can you fit in this room ? Is the old elephant still there ? If one is male and one female we could use E=MC squared. Where E is the number of elephants, M is the size of the room in cubic metres and C the conception rate.
Not really sure how it relates to CST but you seem to get some sort of enjoyment from elephants being in rooms. This is fine, as each to their own.


QUOTE
With that and all the bot activity CST couldn't finally be attracting some institutional interest could it?


This bot issue is interesting as it could only be coming from one of the brokers. As you point out, you would think it is a large Buy Order so the bot is set in motion to pick at the high prices and chomp at the low prices. While it is a pesky little rascal it would be a handy tool to have if you were in the position to buy in big quantities. Skilled ( SKE ) is another stock that seems to get a bit of interest from the bot attack.

Hello Merry

See where you are coming from and do agree, but, as pointed out by frootloops Post on April 7,( thank you for the detailed reply frootloops ) many "share buyers" do use and take note of TA and therefore base their buying / selling around that information.

I have no experience with charting or any of the TA programs so I am sure others will point out any mistakes in my understanding of it.
The Relative Strength Index ( RSI ) is base on a certain number of previous Highs and Lows to work out if a stock is oversold or overbought. The only thing with this is that it has no way of working out if a stock is overvalued or undervalued. When CST is $40.00 and jumps to $45.00 the TA will say "overbought", the real value of the stock will not mean a thing.

With CST it may be the case that many of the long termers have been adding to their collection when prices are down, therefore less units available when a real upturn takes place, the upside might be more than the RSI indicates. This may be wishful thinking on my part.

Any information on the Charting or TA programs other CST watchers are using would be interesting.

Hello Robo

Think you can sum it up in one word, SENTIMENT.

At the moment CST generates about as much interest as a wet sock.

We are always learning and the thing I have learnt from this GFC is never underestimate sentiment and the effect it has on stock values.

I am not a blind believer in CST, I do think the fundamentals are there, I put my money where my mouth is and invested in more today. I hope I will not have to stay underwater too much longer.

Hello,

Can't believe the rubbish I am reading.

Just as well other people had the backbone to live by their convictions and we live in a democracy... you know freedom of speech.

Peoples ONLY motive is money !

Leaders will have their ego dented if anyone tells them something they may not know, then they will let people suffer rather than use a better product. Even I will give them more credit than that.

If the product is as good as we all rabbit on about, do you think the views of a few individuals will damage it. ? SP might go from $2.76 to $ 1.62 in a year.

People have the right to speak up respectfully for what they think is right. If not we may have idiots bombing UN Schools killing innocent women and children....then what sort of a world will we have ???

"Yes we are aware of QFT and other IGRA tests.

We are advised that the Australian Tuberculosis Advisory Council does not recommend these tests at this stage due to issuses of validation. Their position is similar to that of the Canadian TB Advisory Committee" Then there was a link to two web sites.

Maybe someone can explain, why with all of the positve reports etc, etc ,etc worldwide, an Australian biotech has a product that is not recommended in their own country. ??

Put me down for $1.45. Who knows ? If it is so what ? Every other stock will be in the same situation. Look at RIO, CSL, FMG, CBA, BHP the list goes on.

As Kelpie points out this is a very unusal situation we all find ourselves in. In the end the last thing we may be concerned about will be the SP of CST.

At the moment I think things are being judged by the panic button.

From one of your previuos post I got the impression that you do not hold CST. You like to have a stir, thats OK, TV is rubbish at this time of year.

Will take this opportunity to wish all Cellestarians and other investors best wishes for the Festive Season and the New Year.

Great Post Forrest.

For a bloke pressed for time, I would not contemplate what you could do when you are relaxed with plenty of time to spare. graduated.gif

I think the quality of the Posts re CST is worth $ 1.88 a share ;-)

Share Price. After reading the Posts from Bing and bloodclot my first reaction is " the Share Price is $ 1.88 or whatever because because that is what is is "

It has been sitting in the back of my mind as to why the Share Price ends up being such an emotional issue. It causes people to lash out and blame "some one " . Lets face it can't be our fault that we purchased CST for $3.10 or whatever and now it is only "worth" $1.88.

I think I realised that the Share Price is not really about the business at all, it is only about us...the purchaser.

If we paid $ 3.20 and it goes up to $4.50, we have been smart, we feel hansome and sing better ( thanks ROG ) there is a spring in our step, we can tell our friends what a great "investment decision" we made. Damn we are good.

If we paid $ 3.20 and it goes down to $1.88. Rooster to feather duster to chook s..t, in our MIND.

All of a sudden we have these number telling us that we are a dick, crap investor, that could not even win anything in a chook raffle. Look what those people running the business have done to me. Bloody dropkicks, "they" could not even run a chook raffle.

So, it does not matter how technical or informed the comments regarding the business are, it all comes down to the psychology of the investor, mug punter, or buyer of the shares.
I tried to find the definition of Share Price in an old Collins English Dictionary, it is not there. I thought I would try a Financial Dictionary, found: Share Price is not availabe in the financial dictionary !

I did find some interesting comments on the part psychology plays in making investment decisions. Psychology ( from Greek literally "talk about the soul " )

I understand there are many reasons ( mostly financial ) why the Share Price is important to us but really it has nothing to do with the true value of a [COLOR=green]good business it is just about us emotional creatures called human beings.

Hello all,

It is a shame for those loyal CST shareholders that do not have the opportunity to go to the AGM, because you miss one of the most important things.

We can all speculate and try to glean what we think, may or may not happen, but the one thing I get from the AGM is the quality of our managers. In my opinion these people are outstanding.

Good products and exceptional business do not happen by chance. I feel very fortunate to be able to own part of CST. To me, it is a wonderful journey.

I think the business is in very capable hands..I can relax, after all, why have a dog and bark yourself ?

Hello Bloodclot,

Yes, I am happy with your impression.

My general impression is that most posters here are very patient and prepared to sit and wait and essentially accept that the board can always do what it has always done.

Those that manage CST ( as opposed to those that think they could do better ) have taken a business that did not exist 8 or 9 years ago to what is now a world leader in its field. This business in that short time is now making millions of dollars of free cash flow each quarter. Possibly soon this will be each month. Not sure if you run your own business, but in my humble opinion, I think the management and staff of CST have done a fantastic job. So think I will pass on the "door kicker ", thank you.

Just get off the SP for a few minutes and think of this achievement.

We all digest information differently, to some the glass will always be half empty, others think they will be drinking from it celebrating.

As a matter of interest, what three companies would earn your praise at the moment ?

Regards,

A1

Hey Bing,

Relax mate, get a grip.

You might be starting buckle under the strain.

Yes, you are right anything could happen at any time. None of us have a crystal ball.

Fundamentals for CST seem good, these do not go up and down with the SP.

Did you hear the about the bloke that said this down turn was worse than getting divorced.

Hello bloodclot,

I have a short attention span so thought I would drop by the old CST thread for a bit of entertainment. This morning I have been richly rewarded.

I like a person that calls a spade a spade and an outback human bodily waste receptacle a "drop-dunny".

Unlless I forget in my ramble, what is the Elephant in the room ?

Exclaimer: My holding in CST the business is worth less on paper, at the moment, than what I paid for it. Indeed, I am thinking of changing my log in to "A1Submarine"

As you point out there is so much information available worldwide about CST. Others claim CST does not do enough to promote itself. Humans are funny creatures.

Others on this thread post really good information ( that I am grateful for ) so I will not try to justify why you or anyone should have CST as an investment. I look at things one way others look at things in a different way. Does not mean either one of us is right or wrong, we just process information differently.

I choose to stay with CST because: 1) I think it has impeccable Management.
2) Virtually has a worldwide monopoly.
3) Potential, potential,potential for other products.
4) I can afford to get in on the ground floor.
5) I am old fashioned, so I am proud that it is an
Australian business.

At least I can answer three of your questions with complete authority.
The SP has gone down because it has.
It will end when it ends.
It will reverse when it reverses.

Those that hold CST will get whatever being part of the business turns out to be. Simple.
Those that are not part of any business can only expect 2/5 of 5/8 of what is in the bottom of the human bodily waste receptacle.

Now where did I put that DVD, The Hunt for Red October ?

Regards

A1Submarine.

Does anyone else see the irony of the USA, and now the world financial situation ?
The home grown financial terrorists ( from Wall Street ) have achieved what Osama Bin Laden could not. These financial terrorists have got the USA on its financial knees.

Hi Henrietta,

Not sure if there is some issue I do not understand, but why would we need a share split ?

Cochlear is a 3.25 Billion dollar business.
SP $56.00
55 Million Shares
EPS 206.6
DPS 150

I will be happy when CST has the same set of numbers. If it aint broke why fix it ?

Thanks to Forrest for a great Post. Intelligent and rational.

The quality of the Posts from many Cellestarians and the indication that many are long term investors adds to my confidence in CST.

Thanks again,

Hi Robo,

I am sure all holders of CST will enjoy the ride when the SP heads north. Do not know why anyone would invest in a business unless they though it would be a success.

Like Tassie, I did not think I would see the SP at this level agian. Do not have any spare moola stashed under the old mattress to buy more :-(

Not sure where you get a lack of confidence " in CST the company "

Yeah, it must be "someones" fault why the SP is low...I know, lets get stuck into the Directors.
When the SP goes up, and we are feeling smug with our new found moola, we wont give a fat rats arse about them.

Robo, you have made a decision to invest in a business, there is ONLY one thing you need to worry about... that the business has GOOD manegement.

If I thought a business did not have good management, I would be out of there quicker then the Rev Fred Nile walking through Kings Cross during the Gay Mardi Gras.

Hi Hagar,

Thanks for the post, good to get more confirmation re the take-up of QFT. I note on your blog it is now approved for children over 2 years of age.

Being a Cellestis tragic ( hopefuly a rooster soon, instead of a feather duster ) the SP has been of interest from the point of learning how sentiment towards a stock changes.

Around this time of year there is usually an upward trend in the SP. Probably due to the Annual Report and AGM etc. CST at the moment is around the same price as four years ago. Maybe the next rise in the SP will indicate an adjustment of seniment, and the days of the low $2 range will be over.

No.

I hope the management of CST are devoting their time and effort to running a business.

As with all things, time will tell. We can spend as much time as we want to waste talking about the SP or the state of the market, but in the end, what is, is.

At this point in time someone will pay you around $2.22 for your CST bits of paper. If you feel the business is a dud, or the mountains of positive information about this business is wrong. you sell, or keep feeling negative about it, if that makes you feel better.

It is good to question the performance of any business, we have to remember that as readers of CST on this forum we are members of a ShareHolder Agreement Group. or S.H.A.G. In relation to investing, none of us want to feel shagged.

Re: hennry

As usual the replies from those on the CST thread have been very informative and polite.

Think we must keep in mind that any forum where posts can be sent with complete anonymity...how genuine are they, and for what purpose is the post intended.

From hennrys own post of 18-1-08 he purchased OCV and sold them at a loss.
Octaviar Limited, the phoenix of the MFS Group is not trading at the moment as it tries to come to grips with a mountain of debt.

To say he was horrified that he nearly purchased CST....well I will be poilite.

Hi Robo,

It is interesting with the cotinued good news about CST, at this point in time it is out of favour.

I would prefer if the SP was higher, as I like looking at black instead of red when it comes to numbers.

You can put money in the bank and get 6, 7 or 8% right now, why buy CST and know you will not get a Dividend until who knows when. It is also not good for confidence of investors when the SP is rabbited away by small parcels of buying that seem to be aimed at keeping the SP lower. $2.45 all day, then several buys of 14 shares in the last 8 minutes take it down to $2.31. This is happening on more than one occassion. I would be interested to know the real reason behind this.

Having said the above I am still buying.

I think the business is very well managed.

Many people would like to have a business with 50% plus profit margin.

3 rd Quater approx 5 Million and they have 1 million to put in the old buscuit tin out the back.

I could find the sharp end of a microscope but I would not know what I was looking at, but, from what I understand QuantiFERON is a platform that can be used for many many tests.
This gives the potential of CST to what many refer to as huge amount of "blue sky"

All of this gets me excited, which leads me to a very interesting article in the Business section of The Age today.

"Testosterone drives up profits too "
"Financial traders make more money when their testostone levels are high, perhaps because the so-called male hormone makes them more confident and focused "

I am going to spend the weekend checking out as many attractive women as I can see, on Monday decide if I want to wack in a big buy order for CST ! This will be the real test if CST has a future or not !

Good to read that QuantiFERON is actually specified.

In the same article you have the following:

"The current TB drugs, diagnostic tools and Vaccines are more than 40 years old. Newer and more effective drugs, diagnostics and vaccines are urgently needed "

Don't they consider QFT a newer more effective diagnostic ?

Sobering reading.

Is it so that all Broking firms are members of the ASX ?

After reading articles like the one from your Post and the other " incident " so prominent at the moment, when I think of the ASX and ASIC I get an image of a pig, standing in s--t with its snout in the trough and each trotter in a honey pot.

If a Solicitor or Medical Practitioner is found guilty of malpractice they are deregistered.
Has there EVER been a broking firm expelled from the ASX, before, or even after they have caused millions of dollars damage, aside from the personal toll to people that have taken their "advice".

Actually, just realised it, "Broker" might be an apt name for some of these organisations.

Hi Robo

Not sure I would say the SP of CST is appalling but could understand it may be a cause of extreme dismay to some.

It is not the Fragile Bear Market as the SP of CST has been on a steady decline since April 2006..nearly 2 years. Long before the folly of the bright sparks in the US that decided to boost their sales figures with Sub Prime stupidity surfaced. The reference to the US thing is only there as it is the cause of our current financial climate.

I am not an expert on CST but I think it was floated around March 2001. When you think of a global business 7 years is not a long time to change a method of doing anything that has been around for 100 years.

I would guess that most long term holders of CST that have been adding to their CST holding over the past 3 or 4 years could be underwater with the current SP.

From memory two Directors sold 1 million shares each for $ 2.80 per share. This was in October 2006. This may be incorrect, if it is I am sure someone will have the right information. Remember some of the Directors still hold several million shares each so what ever happens to the SP happens to them also.

The only comment I will make about the SP ( not out of greed ) is that I am surprised at the amount of positive information / Reports etc etc there is about CST and it is met with a big yawn. Lets hope we are looking at an extraordinary business, that, at the moment is going cheap.

I hope CST will take its place in the Hall of Fame with other great Australian inventions.
The Victa Lawn Mower, The Hills Hoist, Sunshine Harvester, Sir Les Patterson.

In the mean time do as I do. Put your felt slippers on with your tweed coat ( the one with the leather elbow pads ) sit in a comfortable chair sipping sherry while you listen to Shostakovitch 2nd Symphony the 3rd Movement, the clarinet solo is sublime.

We can put every word in the world here about CST but in the end it all comes down to only one word, SALES. The next two Quaters will be interesting...I hope.

In the ABC article you have " a leading infectious diseases physician " mention the Mantoux test yet no mention of the Australian Company Cellestis or QFT.

Maybe we need Dick Smith on the Board of CST. He is a proud Australian that is not affraid to promote Australian products with a passion.

I am getting frustrated at reading a never ending number of reports or links of positive maybe's and yet CST seems to generate as much interest as a hip pocket in a singlet.

Anyone want to form a syndicate so we can buy a big hot air balloon with QFT on it ?

I find it very interesting how the tone of this forum (in regards to CST) has changed as the SP has drifted lower.

My rule 1 ) Never do business with anyone you do not trust.

My rule 2 ) Never do anything with anyone you do not trust.

I went to a CST AGM so I could eyeball the people in charge of my business.
Even if you own one CST share it is your business too.

Would you employ any one to run your business without checking them out ?

I did not see, or want to see, carnival spruikers that would just "talk" the SP up.

What I did percieve of these people is that they seemed to be dedicated and confident in their task. I got the feeling they know exactly what they are doing and where it is going.
I envey their intelligence and respect their vision of seeing the potential of, and bringing,
QFT to the world.

I buy more of the business ( CST ) when I can afford to, and will continue to do so.

When CST went to $ 1.00, around the time Uncle Sam stuck his nose into Iraq, I only regret I did not have $80 mil so I could buy the whole business. Ah well you can't help bad luck !

I do not know any of these people personally or have any connection with CST except as a part owner of the business.

Bit of a ramble, if you can't sleep at night or it is causing pain and suffering because the SP is not as high as you would like, sell out of CST.

I may be able to get some more.... cheap.

What is happening here ? Nerves are getting rattled.
Must be a time to buy.

I think Fforest mentioned ( a few posts ago ) that when CST made a profit it would have a PE ratio. Can you please let me know what it is ? Thank you in advance.

It is good to see that so many here are long term holders and keepers of CST.

Like Commadore, my only regret is not having enough money under the mattress to buy more and more and more of CST.

As a male I have learnt the most important words are "yes dear" and " no your behind does not look big in that", but, I did not recall reading "abandon ship" or all "non believers make an orderly line for the lifeboats " in the great CST news of last week or today.

As a Passionate Investor in Cellestis, I keep reminding myself that I own part of a business, however there seems to be Pessimistic Recalcitants Ignoring Cellestis Success.

I just wonder what does the little Aussie battler have to do in order to get some interest from this group ?

Never thought I was paranoid but I wonder if CST was a US business if it would be taken more seriously ?

Can anyone explain why with every additional good piece of news or information the share price declines !!! ??


Sentiment: a mental attitude modified or determined by feeling.

Sometime ago CST SP went to around $4.90. There was less "good news " than now. There was less sales / revenue than now....but peoples sentiment towards CST was different.

I guess people thought CST would have done better, quicker and therefore the SP would go up. i.e. they would make / have more money and they would feel better.

As the SP has drifted lower people have less / lost money so they feel worse. Some sell and move on, buy BHP or Rio, hey there is a huge demand from China / India for our stuff.. this is good, I will make a few dollars here... I feel better already. Sentiment.

Read henrietta's post on 12-2-08. Ben Graham, Charlie Munger and Warren Buffet know about the psychology of people in regard to money. I think the results speak for themself.

I must say, if the quality of the Posts I have read on this forum is any indication I think I am on a winner with CST. Thank you to the knowlegable people that take the time to explain the issues so well.

As the SP of CST is considerd to be less than we (as holders of the stock)would like, some comments remind me of a crowd at a footy match. Most calling the umpires mugs and the players do not know what they are doing.

I would imagine the job of any good management team is to run the business in a professional, ethical manner. If I did not think this was the case why would I invest my money there ?

The TB test might be one of many applications Quantiferon will be used for. If CST is seen by the medical community to be a reliable well run business surely this will benifit the uptake of future products.

To turn around 100 years of a particular way of doing things would be a huge task. Funny how slowly and properly usually works out the best.

Lets hope karma will smile on me as I stuck by my dogma to be a winner when I did not quit my CST shares. I will feel handsome and sing well when I hear money talk, as it will be saying "hello" instead of "goodbye". I will then reflect and agree with Warren, I must have had too much spare time on my hands to waste on internet sites.

All meant to be in good humour.

I am not an expert, just a few thoughts.

Not sure if I am barking up the wrong tree but I dont think the result is that flash.

A world market that we keep hearing needs the product.

An increase in turnover of A$917,000.00 from the previous 2 nd year Quarter.

A$76,416.00 a week.

A$15,300.00 a day on a 5 day week. ( 1 bloke in Harvey Norman would only have to sell three flat screen telly's a day to achieve that ! )

Each test A$24.00 i.e. 637 tests a day increase on the previous year Q on Q.

If you are selling into 10 countries that is an extra 63 tests a day per country. Bloody hell !

We are going to have to do much better before we can retire to easy street on our CST investment.

Please point out if or where I am wrong.

Regards

Hi bigmumma,

Cellestis is a business, it will survive any of Mr Markets moods and swings.

Read Ben Graham's words on "Mr Market"

Sorry, I do not have the skill to cut and paste the article. Type Ben Grahams Mr Market in your Search Engine and you will find it.

I can only assume, as I did that somehow you found out about Cellestis and formed an opionion that as a business it had some value. The "value" will still be there no matter what dingbat Mr Market thinks it may be "worth" from day to day. If the market give some people the idea they want to sell Cellestis cheap, if I have the dough I will buy some more.

I am not aware of anything ( other than positive news ) to change my view as a PIIC ( Passionate Investor in Cellestis ) I am careful how I say "PIIC" after a couple of wines.

Any item is only worth what someone is prepared to pay for it.

At the moment, the investor or trader or mug punter is only prepared to pay around $ 3.00 for CST.

The "market" is a term used to describe a place of transaction driven by fear, greed ignorance, knowledge, stupidity and maybe sometimes luck. I would never say "it is always right"
