He can only speculate when the government will come out with the information. Remember this is the government we are talking about here. I wouldn't hold my breath on the short term timing.
Looks like you're in more for the short term here, looking for a quick pop. There is so much more to this company than the current BARDA agreement. This stock should be at $10+ even without BARDA over the next 12-18 months. But good luck trying to guess when BARDA comes out.
