    Investing in a lawsuit?

    Probably only a few things worse than investing in a lawsuit.
    A. A lawsuit already lost so now investing in the appeal.
    B. investing because an investment firm Wedbush and their hired hack told you to.
    When was the last time Wedbush was right on Siga?
    Wedbush has given you a lot of poor guidance on Siga over a long period of time
    They are using you for their exit strategy on this losing position
    The Only thing that has changed with Siga is the price of the stock
    Thanks to ..... Wedbush

    • An investment in SIGA has nothing to do with the lawsuit. However, there are likely some TRADING in SIGA based on the lawsuit. I believe the current price of SIGA is too low even assuming the current income split with PIP so I vieew SIGA as having limited downside from here, probably quite a bit of upside even if the Apellate court does not reverse/remend. if it does reverse/remand, it's a big score

    • SIGA has assets, products, contracts, and potential. Not one here is betting on the lawsuit, we're betting on a company with a solid future. Even if the appeal fails, and SIGA's future involves 50% of the profits on a blockbuster multibillion dollar drug (plus pipeline), we'd still be worth way more than $4 (and way way more than the $2.50 we were at before).

      PIP investors, on the other hand, are betting on a lawsuit. A lawsuit's all they have.

      The market these days is always keenly focused on the "next event", and this is certainly our next event. That's why we've been so underpriced; at this point, nobody but us individual investors sees/cares about the big picture. So if you're a large insti investor, then, yes, it's all about the lawsuit. But people named "fatmans_pimp" posting on chat boards likely aren't. So you may want to reexamine your perspective. Because investing by betting on the next event requires speed you and I don't have, whereas patiently betting on broad future potential requires patience ONLY you and I have.

      • At this point in time Siga has no marketable product due to ongoing problems with dosage and shelf life. They owe BARDA $43 million worth of perfected ST-246, which they do not have, and, considering current management, may never have. They do have potential, which at this point in time is reduced by the judgment in favor of PIP. At this point in time their pipeline is a non-factor. So what they have is potential and the outcome of their appeal. That's it! Hardly a company with a solid future. Too many ifs, ands or buts standing in the way. Regardless of what you say, you are in fact betting on potential and the outcome of the appeal, just like investors in PIP.

        Exactly.
        I'm also betting on THE CURE of the toddler, the sailor, the military wife & two other lucky folks cured by THE CURE thanks to RP, Dr. Hruby, & RP's jet.
        Having Andy(power of persuasion) Stern & Ms. Fran Townsend(CNN expert) on the BOD & Dr. Rose( he did Pres. Clinton's successful bypass operation) as CEO are frosting on the cake,NWJ?

        IMO

        Super Strong Buy

        You didn't say "pipline".. That's understandable.... easy to forget it even exists.
