I remember Merck bought Rosetta Bioinformatics or some such Seattle company just to incorporate their systems into Merck's reseach operation.
Now any big pharma in a year or so - after RNA has had a major success somewhere (like Muscular Dystrophy, say) and becomes the Talk of the Town. Then you get the typical herd instict happening - such as was happening when Merck bought Sirna (from French) in the biggest RNA deal ever. (French and Sirna got the better of that deal, I'd say.)
Now we are about to hit the next RNA plataeu higher and it would make even more sense now for a Merck to swoop in a second time and buy, not one simple technology like the did the last time, but rather a whole solar system of RNA technologies. And ones that are already showing promise in the clinic.
It might make sense to you and I only because we have vested interest in the company, but why would a mega giant like Merck buy and small, unstable, unproven company like MRNAD when they could just start there own rechearch RNA team.
I find it very strange how the stock price jumps to just over a buck,on high volume, weeks before the dead line only to fall back down to where it is and will not go up again. This stock is only 10 to 15 cents away from staying listed on the naz and they wont let it go higher. It just seems very ironic this is happening now.
Once MRNAD loses it's Naz listing and goes into the OTC land, It's lights out for this company. Some people on this board will bash, curse, throw stones at me for saying this but, I've been around the stock market for many years and have a pretty good feeling of what the outcome will be if this happens..
I don't thing delisting is the end by any means. I think we would than see mrnad relisted at a future time with earnings from milestone payments and possibly from the most recent pharm. collaboration. At that time mrnad would be in the green and the stk price would reflect this.
I always worry at a time like this as a tactic to take the company private. But, it does not seem reasonable at this time.
Dear Ham the Jam, We have perfectly understood that your outlook about MRNA is not good. You're sure MRNA will die soon. OK Ham the Jam, understood. We need only 1% of our brain to understand your point of view
So.....why don't you sell as soon as possible your MRNA stocks???
