    Kind of Funny

    I hold shares long and some I trade. One thing that I have to laugh about on this board though is the rampant optimism. Do you guys honestly believe that you're the only ones who are invested in ELN? Everyday it's the same posts about "once the SEC is done, once debt is paid down, once this or that happens, this company is going to skyrocket to 20". Why is it still at TWO then if everything is so damn rosy and such a sure thing??? 58M short shares and those guys are all stupid and everyone else knows something different? Doesn't anyone think the shorts are also seeing these asset sales happening?
    So, why aren't they covering? And why aren't there more buyers if "once all this other stuff happens this stock is going to skyrocket"? I'll be happy with three, never mind 5, 8 10, or 20. Something just seems to be missing here. There's what, maybe 25 posters on this board? So only 25 people know that things are going to improve dramatically but no one else in the investing community does? I just don't see it, I'm sorry. Shorts also know about Antegren, so do other biotech followers. The volume on this has only been so-so, I don't see people breaking down the door to invest. Maybe Joe made a good point yesterday. ELN won't have positive cash flow for at least another year. Will the shorts continue to just hang on for that much longer hoping that ELN will fail?

    • One bad week Frankie does not make a year in which I am up. Elan will be 5 eventually. The secret to making the big bucks,is to buy undervalued securities and hold on. No guts no glory.


      The Kid

    • I know she isn't for real Kid. I've already called her/him some fat old bald guy from Montana or Iowa several times. Probably has a name like Zed, Jethro or Billy Bob. Just having some fun. Yeah, tough week for you fb wise. Hmmmm, now that you lost your golden touch in fb pix, does that mean your predicts re Elan price by year end of $5 are equally invalid? Time to pause and reflect...after all, your picks carry as much weight as the Wall Street talking suit "Anal ists." Have a good Sunday night bud.

      Frankie

    • Yes Frankie you are a babe magnet. My picks lost this week,thats what I get for betting against my team the Jets. I think good things lay ahead for Elan. Btw more than likely the Antegrenkid is a man,ask yourself Frankie if you were a 21 year old hot babe would you waste your time on a message board,getting laid and sports would be all I would be thinking about at that age. Very few think about investing at age 21 or so,they live for today.


      The Kid

    • Hey, I thought we were buds! I'm not dirty, not old, and definitely not crabby. In fact, beautiful young women bring out the best in me. But admit it...you can see how my animal lust is serving as a magnet to this young beauty clear across the continent, can't you? She wants me, but she is at that vulnerable age, and I don't want to hurt her. Ah, what to do? Maybe if she asks real nicely, I'll let her sample the pleasures; oh what a guy I am.

      Hey, fb pix don't look so good this week Kid. Last time I looked I think both the Bears and Bills were getting beat. I don't remember the point spreads though. So is the reign coming to an end?

      Enjoy the rest of Sunday pal...and let's hope for a big day tomorrow.

      Frankie

    • Thats dirty old crabby man to you.

    • Appears I stand corrected...looks like the photos are all of the same young lady. You have my apology.

      Frankie

    • OK I'M CONVINCED POST ANYTHING YOU WANT.

      zen

    • I think once LYON's are paid off, the somewhat artificial cap on the stock price is gone. The stock should then find its upward "natural level." If I were a short and saw this kind of movement, I'd sure as hell want to cover....wouldn't you?

      Frankie

    • any particular reason for shorts to cover if LYONs have been paid off?

    • <I hold shares long and some I trade. One thing that I have to laugh about on this board though is the rampant optimism.>

      Optimism??? You should see how some like Frankie start foaming at the mouth and ranting and raving everytime I post a new pic. When crabby old guys like that are optimistic on something, you had better pay attention.

      <Do you guys honestly believe that you're the only ones who are invested in ELN?>

      Did anyone here ever say that's what they believed?

      <Everyday it's the same posts about "once the SEC is done, once debt is paid down, once this or that happens, this company is going to skyrocket to 20".>

      Everyday, more and more folks realize this. It's hard to be sitting on a million tons of rocket fuel, just waiting for that spark that is going to launch you into orbit.

      <Why is it still at TWO then if everything is so damn rosy and such a sure thing???>

      Because most folks are risk adversive and sheep. Leading takes risk. More chance for loss (and gain).

      <58M short shares and those guys are all stupid and everyone else knows something different?>

      See above. Shorts on this stock are mostly hedge funds who went short trying to cover their ass. It is more difficult to take action(takes momentum) than to just sit their. Shorts are sitting under the rocket, and are going to get burned.

      <Doesn't anyone think the shorts are also seeing these asset sales happening?
      So, why aren't they covering?>

      Because the shorts are sheep.

      <And why aren't there more buyers if "once all this other stuff happens this stock is going to skyrocket"?>

      Who is going to buy at 2 bucks a share. You would have to be a total idiot. Idiots on this stock are poised to make a ton of cash.

      <I'll be happy with three, never mind 5, 8 10, or 20. Something just seems to be missing here.>

      You already said you trade. We know some such as yourself will wait until the rocket starts to lift from the ground before jumping back to earth.

      <There's what, maybe 25 posters on this board? So only 25 people know that things are going to improve dramatically but no one else in the investing community does? I just don't see it, I'm sorry.>

      You want a sure thing AND a guaranteed profit so you come here?? Buy bonds.

      <Shorts also know about Antegren, so do other biotech followers.>

      Shorts are counting on bankruptcy before Antegren is given approval.

      <The volume on this has only been so-so>

      Few sellers? There are two sides to every coin.

      <I don't see people breaking down the door to invest.>

      Some like to buy BEFORE people start breaking down the door.

      <Maybe Joe made a good point yesterday. ELN won't have positive cash flow for at least another year. Will the shorts continue to just hang on for that much longer hoping that ELN will fail?>

      Who knows what those shorts will do. Or the longs for that matter. Only thing for certain is that the stock can't go below zero, and everyday it climbs, shorts will (or should) get more nervous.

      You seem to want your cake and eat it too. Plus you seem overly concerned with what the mass of sheep are doing.

      P.S. I will be baaaaaaaa....ck with more pics soon. Stay positive...Good luck to you.
