STRU Longs ...
the clock is ticking..... and the vast majority of the 505 conversions are coming up in the next 2
weeks. Further there are stipulations in the Alpha deal that necessitate that STRU draws down at least $
2 million by years end....... and far more immediate to Struthers concerns is the ability to continue tapping
those funds...... and the price and volume must move to higher levels..... so the clock is ticking.
so it becomes obvious that the "news" (if there is any) must be released over time, in a manner
that not only moves the price up but sustains some higher level. Is it any coincidence that this past week the IR
firm sent a Struthers information packet to a large number of brokers that Kaplan knows deals with
OTCBB penny stocks. Common sense would tell me that that packet was probably followed up with a phone call
to the most active of these firms to provide further information that perhaps may have been either too
late to get into the report or let's just say .... a little too forward looking for print. IMO the next wave of
investors here have been given a "heads up" on a little biotech company that is about to turn the corner to
profitablity ..... and they are being forewarned about the opportunity that the paragraph above presents. Kaplan
is doing what he was hired to do.
now, lets assume for a moment that if you are a so-called "long" here .... and have been around
for the last couple of years ( sheesh years) you are no doubt frustrated, angry, po-ed, sick, tired, and perhaps even on the road to the poorhouse ...if things don't change soon. Some, I'm sure are simply looking for
any spike whatsoever to simply bail out completely, walk away, and never ever utter the words
Struthers again as long as they live. Most, I believe, are still trying keep their wits about them and
focus upon the very real long term potential that Struthers still possesses (IMO) ..... and "play" this
thing with a small portion of their total holdings, as up to this point those that "played" this thing
apparently are the only ones to have made any money here. At the farther extreme, I'm sure there
are some that invested here and will not sell one share for another 2 or 3 years for whatever
IMO, it's the folks in the middle group that will exert the greatest influence on the price of this stock
over the next few months as a function of the sheer number of "traders" there might be ..and the
average number of shares that they choose to trade..... which itself is a function of the near term
price expectations and their level of comfort with the long term potential. Further, IMO, if the price
moves up ...a penny, a nickel, a dime .... and if one does not truly believe there is much out there
in the future to move it on up ..... there will be a direct correlation between that and the number of
shares that find themselves in the "tradeables" portion of everyone's portfolio. The less long term
optimism ... the more shares "traded" .... the more volatile the price.... the fewer winners there
are..... Our consensual perception of Struthers long term potential will in fact affect the price per
share in the present .... and in the future...... as todays price affects the float (via the 505s and
the Alpha deal).
Now, Mariano has indicated that they are putting together a so-called business plan for the
shareholders to gain a better understanding of what they are trying to accomplish. It will not,
though, be so explicit that every Tom, Dick, or Competitor will know what they are doing..... and
who they are doing it with. So I would suggest that if anyone vaguely remembers Dr. Carlson's
remarks about how the synergy created by our technology(s) facilitates a pork production system
that is based upon "demand-pull" versus "price-push" ..... please go refresh your memory. In a
nutshell ....that is what I believe Struthers is all about.... and it takes a great deal of time and
patience, and the overcoming of many obstacles to come to fruition........One by one, I happen to
believe that Mariano & Co. is doing that. Whether we, the shareholders, can hang on long enough
to taste the fruit of our longsuffering .......remains to be seen. It really depends on you ....and
which of the aforementioned group of investors you fit into ...... and whether you really know which
group the person(s) you are listening to are in.... and whether you have done your own DD here
..... and believe in your own ability to sift fact from fiction........
Fly solo from this point forward.
Good luck to all.
