Again, it has nothing to do with US flu season, China has multiple flu season, one in jan/feb and another one in Spring. So we haven't even hit their peak flu season yet. As far as US flu, doesn't really matter to us unless H7N9 or MERS shows up on this side of the pond near US soil. If that happens, look out because we will be getting a stockpile order faster than you can short.
But like others have pointed out, it really isn't about the flu. It is the RSV phase IIb top line readout in January 2014 that is the ultimate catalyst for NVAX.
I would agree with that comment Jeff in years past. I never took advantage of that very obvious repetition. But this time is different. They have come a lot farther along in 2013. I have to agree some of this has to do with flu news, but look at the institutional ownership alone. It's never been this high. Just saying, if your long now, put your stops in but don't miss the ultimate ride we've been waiting for all these years.
In the current situation, trailing stops are an excellent way to get a truly educational experience: find out what it's like to get sold out at the bottom of a very brief dip and "left at the station" trying to figure out just how much more you're willing to pay for those shares. USE ALERTS instead of stops! That way you can evaluate the CURRENT situation before making what may be a very costly decision. It also means that MMs cannout use your stops as both a road map and a convenient tool for walking down the SP to clear out a lot of cheap shares from weak hands. (and hands that use trailing stops instead of alerts are weak). Alerts can find you on mobile devices These days there's no reason to use stops (unless you consider your position not worth enough to bother interrupting anything else for.)
