I have held Isis on and off for about 2 years. I have not been richly rewarded. I do not see anything positive coming from Isis over the next 6 months. Can someone tell me what a pivotal trial means. They are intending to have an independent party review the pivotal trial for the Crohns drug. This market is not shrinking and would be real proof that antisense works. I am guessing results will me around mid year.
I am a believer in antisense. I think Isis has a very bright future. I hope they can get a few drugs into the market before they run out of money.
I will be investing in Isis within the next 3 months. I will place the certificates in my safety deposit box and pull them out in 10 years and retire at the age of 45. My guess is that if I invest $50,000 it could turn into a few million.
The best part about Isis is that they seem to be continuing to add drugs to the pipeline. This definitely adds to the value of the company. The downside is that as more drugs get into the pipeline the overhead costs utilize more of their cash. I don't want to see them issue more stock. I would much rather they find some additional financing from a partnership in a drug. I would rather give away one drug for the long term good of the stockholders.
