    While I'm sure this is NOT a pump and dump, I cannot explain the recent trading

    My belief is that the pressure that will fall on Kirk to show value over at XON will come back our way. In the interim, we have a massive short position paying through the nose to hold onto that position. If the price continues up, the shorts get massacred. If the price goes down, we have to deal with their bogus posts of pump and dump, etc. I prefer the massacre myself. In the end, it all comes down to results and I equivocate there. I don't know if these guys have IL-12 together or any other synthetic bio product on line that'll do what's touted. I hope so. As for what's happening now. Clueless.

    • Not sure either. Very odd price action. The IL-12 platform is unproven. If successful I assume we will see other IL payloads and/or expanded use of rheoswitch. Lewis seemed to point toward brain cancer in one of the recent public presentations. That would be interesting. I also believe we see some melanoma data prior to year end. The other wild card is SCLC trial. Was Pali a waste of 5 years or is there something there. We will know shortly.
