Neal,

You would make a good captain, calm and steady. You are right to wait for proof on either side of this argument but to some of us, the company has lost all credibility. I was hanging on until that pathetic diatribe they put out the other night. That was the final straw for me.

I suspect you have a fair amount of shares here and hope you do well but IMO, the odds are very long of that happening. I also suspect the share price will go lower until there is proof of substantial sales, and that could be a very, very long time.

In any case, there is nothing more to say until the company proves themselves to be a viable operating company...or not. Good luck, Captain Neal.

Thomas,

For me, the company has not lost all credibility. The PR piece that got put out, unfortunately, raised more questions than it answered for me. Now, there may be good business reasons for not telegraphing every step that they are taking so I am willing to give them the benefit of the doubt. And they did beat J&J in court. That buys them lots of credibility in my mind. I think in 6 months to a year we should see them make big inroads into the test strip market and find some semblance of a sustainable business model. If not sooner. So I don't thing I will have long to wait.

So, based on what you posted, did you sell all your shares or are you in the process of selling your shares?

Yes Neal, they did beat J&J in court and should be accorded some credit. I am sure the company was instrumental but the true stars of that victory was the legal team hired by DECN. So I would give them credit for hiring the right legal team and very little else. They should have had the marketing team in place and the pipeline full and ready to go...yet, it appears we are 6 to 12 months away from any decent sales. Probably longer, if ever. They will pursue the patent infringement case in NV which may yield a substantial monetary reward but I expect J&J will drag that out another 3 or 4 years.

As for selling shares, the only shares (small amount) I sold were 5 years ago when they announced another reverse split. I then averaged down a few months ago and will be selling those shares into the next substantial pump. I am probably stuck with my original slug of shares for a few more years till they break even at a buck or till the company goes belly up or slips out the back door. Honestly Neal, you have always seemed like a decent fellow and I hope you do well here.

Thomas,

Lots of new posters on the iHub DECN board. Most with lots of posts under their belts and lots of followers. And almost all of them with negative opinions on DECN, picking on 1 or 2 things to criticize the company without ever giving due to the potential positives. Makes me think J&J, or someone on their behalf, is shelling out again to put DECN into a bad light with investors to put pressure on the company to settle the newest lawsuit. That seems to be a cottage industry at iHub. It is unfortunate because as a small investor looking for honest discussion, both positive and negative, it is getting harder to decipher what is real and what is fluff, on both sides of the equation.

Neal,

I really find it hard to believe that J&J would hire people to post on Ihub, or any message board for that matter. However, I do believe this stock has been heavily shorted for years and some of these posters may be in that group. All the company has to do is put out one good, substantial PR with some meat on the bone that we could sink our teeth into. Unfortunately, they choose the path of obfuscation. At times, it almost seems that the company is in cahoots with the shorts because they (DECN) just make it too easy for the shorts. I have never shorted a stock and really am not well versed on the mechanics of it but I suspect the preferred shares have been used as a vehicle for many years.

When I first bought this stock many years ago I would post on Ihub and yahoo but was torn to shreds as a pumper/flipper. They have a pretty vicious crew that work both boards and I can't say that I do not enjoy some of the recent commentary. In any case, I am still here but have not posted on the other boards in years.

Yes Neal, it is hard to discern what is true and what is not with regards to this company but I think that could all go away with one honest and substantial PR from the company. I would say the ball is in their court.

You know, a couple of years ago, I would too. Just seems too organized to me that it is just by chance. J&J probably wouldn't do it directly but maybe through some surrogates under the name of publicity? Who knows? Again, any company that would use private court information to their benefit, I could see doing about anything.

And for the record, I don't like the mindless pumping that some people do either. I just want a place where real investors can come and exchange their real ideas about stocks.

And I do like J&J as a profitable company and one that pays dividends and own shares.

but I think that could all go away with one honest and substantial PR from the company. I would say the ball is in their court.
I would like that too. Unfortunately, could it be that J&J has caused them to be overly cautious in releasing too much information? Or is it that they don't have good information to release? Hard to tell right now. I am thinking that is the first thing. But if they can't sell the genstrip with all holds removed, then I will be looking at it as more the latter and will be selling my shares.

Interesting reading here. I see a lot of similarities. I guess J&J is not the only big pharma that appears to take certain liberties during the course of a trial.

Neal....regarding the new posters, I have seen some of them before and they are very good at what they do. Suffice it to say that when they show up, the stock usually gets crushed. However, the companies they post about are usually pure scum, if not scam and usually deserve it. I really don't understand why they would show up here. While I think DECN is very questionable in some areas, I truly believe it is a legit company with a chance of succeeding. Probably a long shot but still, they have a chance.

If the company does not make a stand and release substantial news, then we will be forced to watch as the stock will continually be hammered into the dirt.

IMO..."IF" you believe there is a real business here, this may be a good time to buy. Now trading at .17 which is roughly the cash value if you believe the company at least received the value of the bond of $12.6M in the suit with J&J. There is absolutely no premium built in for the business. Once again, "IF" you think there is a real business here, it may be a good time to buy.

Thomas,

Bought some at 15 cents but saving some powder in case it drifts lower. I think the delay in more news coming out caused the short termers to take their money somewhere else. Last couple of days felt like capitulation. Will see if that is the case.
