    Anyone see the 1,000,000 shares at the bid Friday?

    That was very strange....any ideas? Stock never even blinked.

    • Thanks for the heads up. mackgreen looks very scared. Is he one of those short sellers that bets on the pps not doing well. As I understand it, shorts.can have unlimited losses on the upside and shareholders can prosper from the short sellers mistakes.

      Investors Business Daily said shorting high flying bios under $5 is a recipe for failure for shorts while a serving of success for longs

    • The meaning of that bid was basically

      It's a "buy scare" as we call it.

      It's when someone with some loot wants to get a nice short position, they put up a massive buy to create hearsay and interest and hopefully new investors. Then they pull it...Now if they wanted the shares they would have bought it but they plan to establish a short position after it goes up..kind of a no brainer??

    • I especially like when walt told mackgreene121 his new name is shorty shorpants and this:

      Sentiment : Strong Buy

    • The meaning of that bid was to incite a buying frenzy ahead of some relatively bad news. The exact same thing happened right before Perifosine dumped, they had lured new investors with similar "buy" scares.

      If they wanted the shares they would have taken them. They actually intend to lock in a short position after a senseless run-up in PPS.

    • Hmmmmm

    • Yessss.

    • -bump-

      sounds like someone had prior knowledge of the Zerenex information to me... but WTH do I know.

    • It was over 1,495,000 shares on the bid at $1 38. They weren't getting filled, so they pulled the buy order. Will likely buy in smaller blocks of 20 to 30k based on what I saw on level 2

    • There are so many possibilites..A) Shorts need to cover.

      • Nicely stated. You don't miss a thing and unlike the scared and fearful shorts, you do not need to lie. It sure looks like the shorts are begging for a reaming and will get it.

      • Walt...you said and i agree to the following:

        Keep up the good work walt. After your donation of time and intelligence to the board yesterday, you've earned a top spot up there with theorothchild and haltkaldt.

        Much respect!

      • Wow, you guys are becoming so transparent. Take a break from the 75 bagger - 100 bagger crap. So tell me something, you guys knew Peri was a failure, didn't you. Be honest.

    • Somebody bid size for the stock, and cancelled the order. I have no idea why. S%#*t happens. All stocks have size buyers and sellers from time to time. As investors, we should stick to the fundamentals, and ignore the noise.
