OMG it did not take long to get an insult. Just as I suspected and while you won't hear from me for a month neither will I engage in this spat I will be reading and not your posts Dr. SpinBushky. I like that name for you much better than the current one Hope is using because it is cleaner and more to the point. I have to get the kids to camp and myself to work so see you people in a month or so. Hope, if you read this , THANKS AGAIN!
So I get up this morning and turn on the TV and Futures are up over 100 points and it seems I am on the right side of the trade again and this is why I was so encouraged to post again as I am actually quite shy to post and really hate confrontation and the rude rude behavior that I am subjecting myself to by doing so. I will not name names but in my mind if I had to make a decision to buy or sell I look to Hope for a clue although it is my decision in the end. I am not versed in science nor am I invested in any other biotechs at the moment but someone mentioned ADXS yesterday and that Hope suggested it here at $10.00 while that could not be further from the truth because he mentioned at $6.60 in May and I remember because I bought it the same day at $6.80 and guess what? It was $10.00 by early June! Just saying, in all fairness while Hope can be as nasty as the flu, he can be as right as anyone I have honestly read on this thread. Past performance is not a guarantee of future success in this arena but when Hope posts, I am a reader and I am looking for a clue as to when he is selling again. I don't understand the science so much and I do not know if Ziopharm "has the keys" or not but I once again am sitting on a nice profit due to reading the nasty rants of Hopewillhelpyou! Thanks Hope and please clean it up a bit if you don't mind. lol
I don't post often but I am a habitual reader of this thread along with IV Board, Stocktwits , Twitter or anything else I can find because I have been invested in Ziopharm Oncology since last year. I started buying the stock when it dropped below 5.00 and if I may say many here who are calling for $2.00 and $3.00 were doing so back then when Hope called the bottom under $5.00. I am not here to take sides but I just felt the need to post my personal experience and I cannot condone Hope's crude writing style and admittedly I often cringe when I read it, for me he is "The Donald" of this board if you will as he is often as right as he is crude IMO.
I started "trading around a core" as he had suggested and while I didn't follow his trades to the T I'm sure, I managed to do quite well and much better than buy and hold on the whole position. For example six weeks ago Hope had said the DJIA had hit 18,000 again and that he was taking all profits off the table and just leaving a small core and Ziopharm was trading at almost $9.00 and low and behold within three weeks it was under $7.00. Amazingly it doesn't stop there because two weeks ago well before Brexit he said the index was once again approaching the top of that 18.000 range and said he felt the market was shaky and feared Brexit and a terror attack on US soil and low and behold we had both. I read all posters here but honestly I don't think anyone has been as eerily right as Hope despite his awful language and crude sense of humor.
I again profited by selling near a top, wonderful! Last Friday he said he had "started nibbling" and so did I after Brexit and I managed to buy a lot on Monday at $5.12 replenishing my trading shares at an average of $5.30 and I could not be happier right now. OK, maybe he is just lucky? Sorry, I don't think so because since last year he has more right than wrong while most people here ridicule him and say he is holding $14.00 and $12.00 shares which I know cannot be true.
