    And you bash Al because...

    How is that minimal dilution and spike in stock price after financing working out for you?

    • To be honest, not good.
      But right now it is simply a paper loss. The short term fluctuations are meaningless since my investment horizon is 5+ years.
      The dilution trimmed the upside but this was always a possibility. Even with the dilution the upside is huge. This could be a 10 bagger from here or a 100 bagger. (One must also realize the another round is also a possibility)

      However, I need to say that I have been invested in MNKD for several years at various pricepoints. I did not invest based on any seminar statement but rather based on everything I could read about the science, which is solid.

      I now must look forward.
      Do I get out and then try to jump back in.
      The risk with this approach is that my timing is lousy and I miss the big move back.
      Also, Al could elect to sell the company and then the opportunity is lost.

      Instead I chose to ride the wave.
      I rode it up and down.
      Now I will ride it back up.

      Being a realist there is always a chance that this investment goes to zero. I believe this is a remote chance but I am prepared for that outcome.

      Al has always been overly enthusiastic in his comments but he is stating what he truly believes.

      I do believe that you will be fine in a couple of years or less.

      Good Luck to you.
