Geron Corporation (GERN) Message Board

    Merrill Lynch would not have financed Geron if big things were not on the way

    That's life (that's life), that's what all the people say
    You're ridin' high in April, shot down in May
    But I know I'm gonna change that tune
    When I'm back on top, back on top in June (when we get included in the Russell)

    Sentiment: Strong Buy

    • I said that's life (that's life), and as funny as it may seem
      Some people get their kicks stompin' on a dream
      But I don't let it, let it get me down
      'cause this fine old world, it keeps spinnin' around

    • I totally get it. Good for you.

    • Joanie ,you just purchased 22.5 million shares of stock for 4 dollars a share and can sell it for $4.50 a profit of 11,250,000 dollars what would you do! Its time you got real! If you think they are in the game to be nice guys you are very naive!

      Sentiment: Hold

      • The $4 is a wholesale price to the underwriter who agreed to buy up the entire batch and more. How do underwriters make money as underwriters? They peddle and sell to their retail clients, especially institutional clients. And if a firm sells to their clients junky stock often, the clients will leave for another investment bank/brokerage firm like Morgan, Goldman, Chase, Mellon etc.

        Sentiment: Buy

      • They may or may not be nice guys. But some investors actually invest for the longer term. Geron has presented some compelling CR's and PR's already remember nobody else in this space has. They know say they want to go to larger Phase II in US and Europe. Multi-Center Study and issue a secondary to pay for it. The more Geron and Investigators learn about the Bio-Markers and how patients react. Quickly Slowly not at all. The more they learn. Curing cancers will take time and research. The correct molecular Key needs to be identified. There is a lot of new research in this area and Dr. S even said they were looking at that at JPM. Saynig all that means nothing either unless you want to invest instead of Trade. I submit that some of this big money is in the hands of people who know how to INVEST.

      • I've seen that with other stocks before and these guys wont sell even at double, and if they do, they will drive stock so high to do so. Also as a matter of contract there is a lock up period of at least 1 year

    • Ms. De Salvo, Merrill Lynch did the last secondary shortly before the PPS started tanking to 90 cents. The CEO was fired, GRN1005 bombed, hESC was scrapped and Imetelstat solid tumor trials failed.

    • Now comes "joanie"....with more of her usual, wild, baseless, conjectures. "joanie' hasn't a clue as to what Merrill Lynch might, or might not, have done.....nor whether or not "big things" are on the way....nor whether or not "she" will ever be back "on top"....nor whether or not Geron will "get included in the Russell."

      "joanie_de_1" is as clueless as the rest of us.....perhaps even MORE clueless.
