    This article made me change my mind about buying Pulse Bioscience stock and I reminded myself that Duggan is a fool (a very lucky fool financially) who supports Trump and Scientology:

    "Colberg highlighted the fact Pulse Biosciences' stock soared more than 80 percent since the beginning of February and the stock's RSI stands at an alarming 90.

    Typically speaking an RSI of at least 70 implies a stock may be risky and poised to drop.

    When institutional investors buy shares of a company it typically bodes well for the company and gives investors an extra degree of reassurance.

    In Pulse Biosciences' case, institutional investors are selling or reducing their stake in the company at almost twice the rate of those that are buying the stock.

    "This company is pulsing with issues including: Looming stock dilution. Underwriter's ominous track record. Risky RSI. Institutional disinterest.
    Anticipated higher cash burn," the report concluded. "Until Pulse proves itself to any degree, in our view, it's not even worth half of today's price."

    After falling more than $1 per share to $14.27 when StreetSweeper's report first came out, the stock traded recently at $15.53, up 7 percent."

    And note that little David Miscavige is standing several feet in front of the Duggan's, so that makes him look not as short in the photo.

    I understand, Duggan is a fool when it comes to scientology but he's no fool in what he does with companies. His track record is pretty good, prior to Pharmacyclics he sold Computer Motion to ISRG back in 2003 I believe:

    This report came out on the day when PLSE gapped up in price and went higher so there were more buyers than sellers. I did read the article you posted. My concern is the additional shares that become available in May.

    This stock would be a few years hold with the hopes that the company is sold to another big fish, IMHO, and I'll keep an eye it.

    yes. I noticed that as well, if only Duggan would see what is, what is scientology & DM, and he doesn't need scientology nor need to contribute to it.

    Please report when you have become confident enough AND you actually bought the stock yourself.

    roger that, it could be awhile. I'm hoping price will fall back down to 8 to fill-in the gap up. And hopefully there are 3 or more days of heavy volume selloff and a then a dragonfly doji and then the next day green candlestick & volume.

Ms. Duggan has an unbelievably captivating and gripping magnetism about her that became more and more apparent as we talked about philanthropy, the artist, business, the economy, Trump, entrepreneurs and her new Museum opening over dinner."

    Is that something significant or some short-term fluctuation? Have you any idea why it dropped...?

    Don't know....I was just mouthing off. :eyeroll:

    A cursory look shows Duggan bought 2.2 million shares between $6 and $7 dollars per share.

    The stock then went on a rocket ride up to about $32 per share!

    So, Duggan made a lot of money....If he sold any. If not....then "paper profit."

    Now the stock has tumbled 30%....or to around $22 per share today. Don't know why....but after a rocket ride up...perhaps a lot of profit taking?

    According to articles....Duggan now owns 10% of this Company....

    Perhaps a lot of people rode his coat tails on the ride up.....and are now bailing with their profits?

    Looks like Duggan still made 4x profit on his investment....or around 400%

    good analysis. Also, it's a thinly traded stock, hardly moved until the news of Duggan getting involved did it go up. There are not that many shares available to trade so price will move by big increments. The shorts could be selling now so as to buy back at a lower price.

    I wouldn't touch the stock until May when more shares hit the market. Those added shares will dilute the stock price and I'll just watch as it's my money. Fund managers get to use OPM.

    Don't know how long the FDA will take to look into and approve or deny approval for the new "proceedure" that this company is based upon.

    But...if FDA approves...all bets are off...stock could skyrocket again.
  17. Gib

    Gib Crusader

    yes, I saw all the videos on their website last month. It could skyrocket or get bought out by a bigger fish. I don't have a lot of money but I figure I could throw some money at the stock in my Roth account and hope for the best. But I'll wait till May and see what happens.
  18. Gib

    Gib Crusader

    well, I waited past May, I have been keeping an eye on this stock. Bad news hit the wall street wires recently and the stock has tanked big time. There are now law suits developing on investor fraud.

    here is, just type in PLSE to see the stock price/ chart.

    I'm glad I employed what Heinlein told Camplbell back in 1950 regarding Dianetics, Heinlein specifically asked Campbell if he was Clear, and Campbell denounced Hubbard's Dianetics and Heinlein said I'm glad I decided to wait and see!

    From Tony Ortega, Trish Duggan without her former? husband, Bob Duggan at IAS 2018:

    "We’re seeing Tom Cummins, the tall guy on the right, and then Trish Duggan, and Nancy Cartwright. The other tall gent is Alan Atkinson-Baker and next to him his wife Sheila. The photo allows you to blow up the view for the entire front row to the left and right — who can you manage to identify?"
