Despite ZIOP management's consistently inept management of the company's equity - as the decision to release financial results today shows - THE VALUE OF THE SCIENCE WILL PREVAIL IN THE SHORT AND LONG TERM. While the timing was just plain stupid, anyone who was surprised by quarterly numbers has no business investing in biotech. Time to play tough Fidelity and Kirk: CALL YOUR STOCK LOANS THIS WEEK - WHY NOT?
Umm today is the deadline for getting your 10K out so why was it stupid? There are deadlines for 10Ks and I prefer to have it out this week and not next week when data comes even if they could have delayed it. Quarterlys are meaningless and the timing of the 10K and financial release is fine.
Should have been released weeks ago or next week after results. Screwing up the momentum during a run is a careless move, especially if you're trying to do a deal or if you're going to have to raise cash. Effect would have been less damaging after results. I've been in this stock since '06 and they've screwed up every single opportunity to build market cap. They can't afford to blow it this time because I'm telling you, the big guys are very, very fatigued.
