    Letter to SEC (copy and send...)

    Let me say, I'm not an investor in this company, but know someone that was burned by VPHM. Here's the thing though, in this case -- the insider selling provided warning signs that something was going on. Could have minimized your losses, whereas with just the announcement, you would have taken it abruptly. The declines over the past week may have driven the price down a little too much, and I think you'll see a little bit of a recovery to $9 range over the next few days. I know a lot of people are upset over what has happened - but the stock looks pretty cheap right now. The bottom line is it's BIOTECH, and it's human nature for people not to keep their mouths shut. News affects these stocks big time - and a lot more people get to see a failed endeavor with their very own eyes than figures from an earnings report. If you do not want this to happen to you again, then I think being long in biotech is not for you. You know if it was good news that leaked, you wouldn't have wrote that letter to the SEC, even though I agree with you 100%.
