I do not think that Sunrise still has a major influence on DUSA. It did, but there are many other players. It does make a market in DUSA as far a I know. Myerson was a major market maker in the past, but it is not the biggest now. Any connections to Neoprobe or other companies that Sunrise has been associated with, should not be connected to DUSA. DUSA has a real product, which is finally being noticed. It works! The partner is expected shortly, and this will help to boost DUSA, as many other investors will then take notice. And there are many other applications that are being developed. As far as Miravant is concerned, it might as well be called HYPE.
I too have noticed the sell off. I believe there is some truth to your feelings. However, Dusa sponsership has been taken over by H&Q and I wouldn't count on it being sold off due to any problems at Sunshine. For one, Sunshine is an agencey dealer, positions nothing and doesnt make any markets so I don't suspect it is possible for them to drag down DUSA. I think the weakness in DUSA is coming from the delay in signing a partner which was widely expected at the end of the first quarter. The stock hit a high the 30th and has been selling off ever since. I would be pretty careful selling now H&Q analyst seems pretty certain of the facts. I am nervous but I don't want to get left at the alter. I think this stock has $20's in the near future.
You have to look at all of his recommendations. I think in total he has recommended 16-17 stocks, and out of those only 6 or 7 have yielded positive results. I would take it with a grain of salt but yet I could be totally wrong.
