PURPOSE AND INTRODUCTION
15
16
There are many hundreds of subscribers to Dr. KSS' threads, and questions such as "What do you think about $XXXX stock?" (especially from new members) are frequent. Asking questions like that  without providing a reason for asking and without some basic information about the stock is an imposition on Dr KSS' and is not  productive for promoting discussion by the membership. This spreadsheet was developed as a possible way to provide relevant information to Dr. KSS and the Biotech Irregulars when asking the question.
17
18
It is based on Dr. KSS' comments in his microblog http://www.stockgumshoe.com/2015/05/cisco-chang-charlie/ about how to quickly evaluate biotech stocks The process was labeled "MSIETBIC", which stands for " Market capitalization--Short interest--Institutional interest—Exchange--Biopharmaceutical companies with position in company shares--Insider ownership--where are Company headquarters. This is easily remembered by remembering “my scrotum itches each time I bathe in champagne.”

If your are new to the group, please don't be put off by the time required to research the requested information. It's part of our (and now your) "DUE DILIGENCE" -- a comprehensive appraisal of a business undertaken in order to establish its assets and liabilities, and evaluate its potential commercial potential. If you are new to this type of "DD", there's just a small learning curve and you will quickly grow into the process, and possibly even enjoy it.

Here are some ETIQUETTE guidelines that were suggested by AlanH at
27
http://www.stockgumshoe.com/2014/11/microblog-guidelines-for-new-members-posting-rules-and-etiquette/
28
29
1MOST IMPORTANT….Dont abuse KSS’s or any diligent members time/energies asking for info/analysis about random tickers that you happened to stumble on, without supplying the information requested on one of the "NEW IDEAS" numbered tabs.
30
31
2The Bio threads are fundamentally about investing. Comments should be restricted to investing topics that relate to the thread's title.   Better to say nothing than say something that is not relevant to the that title.  Comments are NOT a replacement for Twitter or a place for  innumerable Twitter references. There is a ‘Club House’ thread where you can banter all day…..disinterested others can avoid subscribing to it.
32
33
3Avoid posting non essential, polite responses. Posting a "Thank You" to Fred for wishing you Happy Birthday will clog up 1000+ email inboxes of 1000+ people . Use the Thumb tick instead……it says all that needs to be said, and accumulates against the friends name forever. Heart felt ‘Thank You’ posts for special outstanding informative comments are welcome. Give the gift that lasts…..a thumb!
34
35
4Insofar as possible, stay on topic, or at least relevant to the core bio tickers. AlanH set up a new thread for questions/answers/info about other stocks of interest (which KSS/Travis and doubtless others can mull) here :
36
37
5Before you ask a question, ALWAYS do a comment search to see if its already been asked/answered here or elsewhere. To search the whole page you are on, use "CTRL-F". To search just the comments on the page you are on, use the search box just before the start of comments. To search the main threads, use the search box near the top of the page, or use Google with the search phrase:
38
site:www.stockgumshoe.com xxxxxxxxxxxxx
39
where xxxxxxxxxxxxx is the term you are searching for.
40
6
If you want to discuss a non-BioTech stock, please use this thread:
41
http://www.stockgumshoe.com/2014/11/microblog-kss-club-house-other-interesting-tickers/
42
Please subscribe/bookmark it and use it.
43
44
7So that people can more easily track past information using comment search; please start ALL posts with the relevant $XYZ ticker (s). No ticker? Then the comment is obviously not about investing, so you have probably posted on the wrong thread…..or a thumb would have done just as well. Better to say nothing than say something that is not relevant to the thread title.
45
46
8When calling attention to information from other sources, do not a cut and paste the whole blinking text!   Post a link to the information and give a short summary so that others can judge if it pertains to something in which they have an interest.   Remember that 1000+ people will see the comment, and not everyone will be interested in that particular topic. Also, the longer the comment the more space it takes up on computer monitors and the more time it takes to read the comments.
