Hello all. Haven't looked in here for quite
awhile. I was waiting for just such an announcement.
Lookin' good. Price is right as well. Gotta let it calm
down a bit before jumping in again. Never got rid of
my old shares. Been taking some heavy hits over the
past year with this one. But, I agree, things are
slowly taking shape. I think they will have trouble
maintaining the cash flow on their own. But, forget Hep B and
C - remember the mentions of AIDS and cancer
fighters. That's where the needed funds will come from.
May get them funding to get them through, but the
profits will be in Hep treatments. There is lots of
competition in AIDs and the Cancer stuff is a long way off
IMO. Dumped some shares of a loser stock I was in to
grab some more shares today. I had been hoping it
would rise a little, but figured SCLN would be taking
off soon with the announcement and the next 10Q. Long
Why does the stock seem to drop every day at the
very end of the day? Seems like every day right before
4:00 the stock drops. Even if it is only a small buy.
Seems like someone wants to make the closing price as
low as possible. Who would benefit by this???
Wouldn't be anyone inside the company would it?
I am not wiser, just more frustrated. I become
more frustrated every day. This stock did nothing
besides trade between the bid and ask all day.
far as keeping the faith, I have lost that a long
time ago. I have not seen this company hold onto a
gain ever. Why is this? I really wish I would have
sold mine for $2 1/2 when it went up last July.
comparing SCLN stock with drying paint is funny
but fully correct. Things like patents for a
procedure that investors are well aware of are nothing to
move the stock price significantly. And it doesn't
catch the attention of the public. The longer I'm in
investing into stocks the more I become convinced that you
can distinguish between two major types of
1) Let's call them "sleepers". A company has a nice
story, one or more promising products, sustained growth,
but nobody cares. The company can release as many
sound press releases as their PR department can write
but absolutely nothing happens. SCLN is such a stock.
Another excellent example is BLTI.
"In-favor-stocks". For some reason the public gets on fire with
these stocks. They are not going to earn any money
until the year 2016 or so. They just have a sexy story,
nothing else. Maybe even the entry bar for competition is
extremely low. Don't worry, it simply doesn't matter.
Worst: Those companies with very little revenue and
absolutely no earnings have market caps up to several
billion dollars. AMZN and other "internet plays" are such
I don't know why stocks fit into one or the other
category but I know that this assessment ("sleeper" or
"in-favor") is not going to change.
If the company is
not buyed out there is just one thing, believe me
only *ONE* thing that can change the world for those
"sleepers" forever: PROFITS! Once those sleepers come up
with their first profit, the street has to realize
that they completely missed out on this one. A rapid
run up in price follows. Excellent example is LCAV.
They posted rapid growth quarter after quarter, yet
their shares plunged to a low of 15/16. Shortly after
LCAV posted its first profitable quarter they ran up
to $14. BEAM is another example for an
So I am 100% sure: The frustrating picture (for you)
is not going to change until something spectacular
happens. "Something spectacular" could be:
excellent CPX results (could turn out to be short
- a buyout
- a profitable quarter
see short term peaks at best until one of those three
things happens. I'm going to wait for
You are holding out for 1/6 point? You feel there
is no short term gain to be made? Are you just
seeking 1/4 gain on the stock? I bought this stock
thinking it was going to go up. I didn't think I would
have to hope for a 1/4 point gain on this stock. Now
it is so frustrating to see it go up slightly (3/32
one day and then give it back the next day. Even with
the patent information we didn't get much rise from
this stock. At this point it is very frustrating for
the people that have held for >1 year. 30,000
shares is too much to have tied up this stock when it
was constantly a average down battle. Now all it does
is hover around 1 2/3 or 1 1/2. At least it is
finally above $1. Only problem is most have bought at
higher prices than that. I dearly hope for all the long
term investors that this stocks give a little rise.
And by that I mean more than 1/4 point. That is just
for the day traders. Most would still be in the red
with that little gain at this point. If you are happy
with a 1/4 gain then by all means hold out for 1 1/2
and buy. Wish my average was that low. That is the
way the game goes though.

The biggest hurdle for Zadaxin before USA or Eurpoe
approvals is Hep B phase 3 trial being conducted by partner
Schering-Plough in Japan. This trial started in early 1998. The
phase 2 Hep C trial started in late 1997.
(drug for Cystic Fibrosis) phase 2 results should be
announced in few months.
Is actually Zadaxin approved in Italy?

He is in Europe willing to travel to Italy. Anyone
out there knows any other drugs for Hep from any
