I think my phrase if the year is going to bet"even more excited" for 2014. Ever since our illustrious, and oft criticized leader uttered that exact phrase months ago, it has stayed with me.
I'm hoping that he is sharp enough to realize that when a CEO, takes the bold step of publicly saying something along this line, he better damn well be prepared to back it up big time, or besides looking like a clueless idiot, he'll lose mucho credibility. The purchase if additional stock after the FDA cataclysm, was an indication that CG does in fact have something powerful to share. But...... Why say that, if you aren't prepared to back it up in a relatively timely manner. You're a young, first time CEO, and seriously in need if something that validates you running the show at SRPT from here forward. Just spouting something off a few times, without ever producing ANYTHING that resembles an accomplishment one could be "even more excited" about ain't gonna get it done. Still, I'm going with the belief that he's smart enough to know this, and should, sometime soon, be gracing the public with whatever it was he felt compelled to say he was "even more excited" about. C'mon CG, show the world that you belong in the big game. Back it up.

Did chris purchase more stock after FDA's Nov. 12 sucker punch? I missed that. How much and at what price. Thanks..
No Copp, that was an auto correct , Iphone issue. I was referring to Mr. Chase and his additional purchase after first buying on the open market in the mid 30's. The fact that he stepped back to the plate and bought even more dollar wise, AFTER the FDA about face, tells me that he is 'even more excited" too. The problem is, CG took the time to make these statements more than once, but has not yet shared anything that could be misconstrued as something to be "even more excited" than his DMD program.............not yet anyway. If he waits a lot longer, he will just appear to not know what he's doing. I'm guessing/hoping that he in fact does know what he's doing, and these things take time to iron out. Nobody forced him to make these bold statements. It would be nice if he backed them up, sooner than later from where I sit.

There is a great deal of background information on Chris Garabedian that
may be of interest---Just Google his name and a lot of links, including
interviews videos of presentations, interviews. etc. One interview
where he made some tough but right decisions is significant
relating to persistence!t ---
Although still a lot of risks, IMHO Chris is capable.
