      • people don't get it. Listen this is biotech stock , biotech stocks are always risky but you know what think of it this way in a hypothetical way. Lets say Hep C doesn't turn out the we want it too the most it will drop too is maybe .30 cents a share. but you still have other stuff in the pipeline.

        But look at this way if the hep C phase 2 comes out superb your upside is unlimited. If the technology of electroporation and DNA is proven to work then this company will be valued in the billions because of everything in the pipeline Luekimia, HIV, Hep C . From there this will go up like INFI pharmaceuticals. No drugs in phase 3 or FDA approved drugs yet INFI trades at $41 a share. mark my words shorts you are missing out on a chance of a lifetime like PCYC.

        Sentiment: Strong Buy
