I ended up buying some today at $18.22, should have waited for later in the day, but my timing has never been great. Oh well, I'm perfectly fine with the price at which I bought it at.
If you get a chance, take a look at MNTA, been a long holder of that for a long time, it will be added to the Bio Index on 11/21 as well. Great company with great technology, only one that has a way to break down complex sugars for producing generic products. Their products and technology will be tremendous in the near term future.
It went down because of talk by another company coming out with a generic drug. That company is already loosing money and most likely can't afford the studies. If approved it will take 4 or more years for production. VPHM has other new drugs in the pipeline so I feel it is a wonderful buy right here. Gloria
Yes, it's excellent news how many shorts there are although that's an old figure.
Regarding today, remember that buyers showed up in droves to smash FORD through $25 and then $26. They'll be back buying above $26 before long but it will likely have to wait til after the inflation data is out.
