George, if what you say about your personal experience is true, you deserve a lot of credit for looking honestly into a mirror. There are many who got greedy (Bominireal the primary one -- even crazy Carol didn't get in until $13 or so). I harvested shares that cost an average 4.10 for 54.28, but even I had some residual faith in Dendreon and two years ago, August 2011, held 4K shares that dropped from my $38 buy to just $13 in a heartbeat. Even after that shock, I am still ahead half a million and owe DNDN for a comfortable retirement. When DNDN was briefly in the 50s in May 2010, expecting more was pure greed.
In all seriousness. We have probably all made some $$ along this rollercoaster. Even after todays beating I still feel optimistic about this company. I know it is crazy! I believe the $6 to $20 something (April 2009) has us all hanging on. When you look at the facts Prostate Ca is the leading cancer for men (after skin) and most curable if treated/staged in time - you'd think that this would be a no brainer.
