You were being stupid. With the several candidates in the pipeline nearing NDA status. What exactly did you think would happen.... going to 2.and change was never going to be an option. (061, cipro 855 102 118, 181)
Most likely I forgot 1 or 2 others.
Klaus -- hitting someone when they're down isn't really cool. Ron did a mea culpa, with humor, and blamed himself. I have sometimes thought through the years of owning Nektar that I was being irrational for holding onto it for so long. But I did, and I'm glad (now) -- others are not so lucky. I just hope that he did not sell at a loss!
Time to shrug, smile, and say "We've all guessed wrong in our lives, Ron. Better luck next time -- and don't listen to the trolls! And just in case you are a cosmic contrarian, thanks!" Cheers!
