    Author's Comment - "The Stalled State of Mannkind" - SeekingAlpha

     

    Agreeing with most of what you write, I find myself stunned by your conclusion that this was a "hit piece".

    Rather, it was a rational response to the 9 pieces in less than 2 weeks which nourished investors imaginations with thoughts of $9B sales and virtual guarantees of approval.

    The reality for MannKind at this moment is nuanced and their fate is in the hands of humans who are not given to pure intentions. No one has pure intentions but God. The rest of us act on bias.

    And once again, only a few readers responded to the points at hand honestly. MannKind is going to run out of money and how they meet that challenge is crucial to investors and traders of the stock.

    If this was such a "hit piece" why did I take the time to warn shorts not to look forward with bated breath to such an event? Why did I give a creative suggestion to MannKind executives - five of which make nearly $5M a year (and good for them btw) to announce a tentative agreement which would boost the stock price up by 50% and then do the equity raise?

    And if you think the highly paid staff there could figure that out for themselves, think again! One common denominator of most corporate leaderships - especially those in scientific endeavors, is an absence of creativity.

    So, should anything like that happen - you're welcome!

    Oh, and yes I know, after the fact, everyone will have seen that coming as well. Authors here crack me up. They write whole pieces in response to ideas that I've created and then pat themselves on the back as if such ideas were their own.

    Others are so out of touch with their own self interest that they honestly believe themselves to be providing statistical evidence and nothing more, as they rush their works of objectivity to press in a subjective panic that postponement might drive the price down.

    We humans. I think God had it right with the flood. Rainbows are pretty though.
