No doubt who has been running the shorts over the past few days ... as mention by someone else on the board!
Just read this on THE FOOL'S COMMENT on "its" website.
"Hardly what I'd call a pandemic
Every few years a new strain of flu virus seems to mutate and reveal itself somewhere in the Asia-Pacific region, instilling fear that the next pandemic may be on the way. This time it's the avian influenza H7N9 virus, which has gone relatively undetected in most fowl and has caused the death of nine people in China thus far. What hasn't been proven to this point is whether or not human-to-human contraction is possible. Based on the early estimates from the World Health Organization, that would be a no, which makes the likelihood of the Chinese government -- or any government, for that matter -- asking Novavax (NASDAQ: NVAX ) to make a vaccine for the virus quite low.
Novavax has had its chance to shine in previous vaccine scenarios, and it didn't -- despite having the technology capable of delivering a virus in a shorter amount of time than most vaccine manufacturers. Even if Novavax invests heavily in research and develops a vaccine, the amount that would be purchased wouldn't be meaningful enough to put it in the black. At Novavax's current burn rate, according to my calculations, it has in the neighborhood of eight to 10 quarters before it runs out of cash. This means the possibility of further share dilution, especially with no FDA approved products on the market.
Until we have consistent cash flow from Novavax, it's not worth even speculating."
AS A SHARE HOLDER I VOTE NO VACCINE FOR THE "FOOL" ....
The Motley Fool is finally saying exactly what I've been saying for years. Nvax is a pump and dump stock and until they get serious about making vaccines that can pass FDA rules and regs they will continue to be a bad stock to risk your money on. The fact of the matter is NoVax, the vaccineless, vaccine company, has NONE, NADA, ZILCH in the way of vaccines and probably never will. Starting next week you'll see unheard of low share price from this PIG.
