Q2/21 Earnings releases …  … to date:


Companies in my headlights – It’s your decision; I provide an idea and context:

The Biostage (BSTG) Chronicles - Maintaining Sell – notice how the shares trade with the “pump/promote”?

Biostage (BSTG) closed down again -$0.36 to $3.00 after Tuesday’s -$0.44 to $3.36 with 11,564 shares traded after Monday’s +$0.75 to $3.80 with 25,607 shares traded after Friday’s +$0.45 to $3.05 with 19,982 share traded, Thursday’s +$0.39 with 3,137 shares traded, Wednesday’s +$0.16 with 18,472 shares traded and last Tuesday’s +$0.28 with 10,590 shares traded and the previous Monday’s +$0.68 to $1.89 with 38,354 shares traded.

Question#1: Being able to trade a stock doesn't mean it is worth the share price; an equity that has WHAT is BSTG’s value proposition, after all the share price pumping – NO clinical trial?

Questiob#2: WHAT is the end game of “pumping” the share price as the float is MINIMAL compared to the ever-OUTSTANDING shares?  WHERE is the SEC?

MINORITY PUBLIC shareholders are waiting for the specific time, watching and weighing responses to MAINTAIN their RIGHTS.
