    I have no idea what you are trying to say. You are totally incoherent. When you can frame a sentence, I will try and reply.

    Why don't you forget about FB and SNY, and all the stupid chatter here and focus on where the money will come from to fully relaunch and market Afrezza, nevermind continuing TS development..? They had almost no cash left prior to the $47 million Offering which saved them form BK. They spend $10 million a month and they don't even have Afrezza back yet to sell and distribute themselves. Castanga told us re-launches have a historical low rate of success which means they have to spend even more money to re-educate and even get doctors back who have rejected this for various reasons..... all brought out at the s/h meeting. The burn rate will actually increase significantly. This Offering was an expensive bridge only. They do not have until the end of the year as Matt indicated. The buying institutions got paid for their risk but they also do not want a BK this year. So obviously, they received info we don't have, along with several projection scenarios that probably showed that there is another option(s) to raise cash that satisfied them. Otherwise they never would have bought this stock. Bottom line: MNKD still has a MAJOR cash funding issue BIG TIME. Either something will follow fairly soon or we will be back to a BK/sale scenario. It will take 100 - 200 million more dollars to finish the Afrezza commercialization to reach sustainable sales --- much more for any type of blockbuster status.... They cannot do this by ramping up Afrezza sales alone -- not even close. Why is it so difficult to understand this.... OH, i get it ---- because you are all in DREAMLAND..... I try and be realistic and all i get is #$%$. They need something else SOON or ELSE..... WAKE UP....!!!!

    ..... and they have better uses of their cash than to buy back shares ----- its called GROWTH spending...

    Sentiment: Buy

    I don't think you understand this company at all or perhaps even investing.. First of all, if you have been an investor for any length of time or even did your homework if you invested more recent;y, there are over 30 million shares o/s, with almost 24 million shares of float. Exactly how many shares are they supposed to buy back to make a difference. This stock was close to a buck a share back in late 2011 and under 2 bucks in late 2013 after the EPA reversal on R-22. I was actually a little surprised that they did not explore a going-private deal in late 2011 by getting some big private equity guys involved with leverage of course -- or the company did not get an unsolicited buyout offer ---- maybe they did explore a private deal but with so many shares o/s, it would have still been expensive. This stock has such low volume relative to the float BECAUSE there are so many long term holders who know that the pps will increase over time, especially with the R-22 phase out now defined. They also know that the management here is top notch. It's just a matter of time. Don't bother with the pps volatility ---- just HOLD. I do not think we will get to 10 - 12 bucks i wanted as soon as i wanted it because the phase out took too long. At 5 bucks again (which it has already hit) i may sell some.... but i think we may see 6 - 7 bucks in just 2 years --- maybe 3..... just IMO. You should learn more about the company before you make these statements. Plenty to read -- incl the industry -- it's all public. Look at the airgas website... good info... There may be an opportunity there after they get acquired...

    Sentiment: Buy

    Well, this stock has been 'manipulated' (my term) more than it used to since the EPA ruling, by ST traders. Just look at the percentage swings on single trades and low volume. It's not a daytrading scenario because the volume is too low, but more like every few days or a week. It moves a lot with absolutely no news. I think there are a few select traders that move this up and down, especially during the off-peak periods. However I have been seeing the pps reverse intraday more often, which is interesting. I remember this stock pretty much closed the way it opened --- up or down.... it's just a matter of how much. Now i am seeing more swings throughout the day.
    Second, they still have to get their EPS higher to move the pps higher. This stock will have a ceiling on how much forward earnings it will trade on. I saw where they renewed their credit facility and increased the line to the max..... so i am hoping they have some acquisitions in mind... Otherwise i don't see why they need a LOC that large.

    Well, Mann is dead, but maybe you can bring him back to help, even though he couldn't do anything to save them from where they are now when he was alive... His money is long gone, and here we are at 94 cents... it's called 'failure' so far. Got another idea...?

    Sentiment: Hold

  • rambleon_12 rambleon_12 May 20, 2016 12:07 PM Flag

    at 94 cents a share and a recent desperate act of raising a tiny bit of cash in a horrible deal to avoid a BK filing... i think the answer is obvious... even the "best" can have a failure here and there..... this #$%$ mgmt team has a lot of work to get back his legacy...

    Sentiment: Hold

  • rambleon_12 rambleon_12 May 20, 2016 11:30 AM Flag

    well.... maybe you saw my last post.... this stock has a black cloud over it.... they never get to the finish line anymore... after 5 years i sold everything this morning except for a little bit which i will hold for awhile just for posterity sake.... i will not go through a reverse split like this on a company like this.... enough is enough...

    Sentiment: Strong Sell

    1 for 20.... anything less doesn't give them enough running room... since it is likely it will keep dropping until they have something REAL for investors... I am done with this.... been in this POS since 2011.... sold out in one account at b/e when it was around 4, but kept a bunch in another account... This company keeps finding ways to fail unfortunately.... another biotech with horrible mgmt... i will end up writing off a lot of dough, but this r/s is the final straw for me..... GLTA....

    Sentiment: Strong Sell

    Here is what i wanted to ask but never got called on:: (1) we all know that it takes at least $250 million --- up to $500 million, even a Billion to successfully market a new drug. The Company just raised $46 million, and had minimal amounts of free cash available on the balance sheet. How is it possible that you can actually execute a re-launch, which we just heard from Mike is very difficult with a lower success rate with such a low amount of liquidity...???? And, what happened to all those phone calls that you said you received from all those interested parties when they heard about the SNY termination..? (2) which specific institutions bought the Offering....? are they existing institutional investors or new ones..? How much did they each buy...? Are they planning on selling this equity to their high net worth accredited investor-clients..?? BUT, unfortunately, the Q&A was all a setup with plants... Like the husband and wife team that got to ramble on forever and say absolutely nothng except to say how wonderful everything is..... The woman actually said she was a nurse """" class of '54.."" #$%$..????? The worst S/H meeting .... EVER..... worse than last year...

    They will run out before that. The burn rate will be higher under a re-launch than it was initially. They have to go back to a lot of docs who rejected it for numerous reasons. The industry knows that SNY terminated because they felt they could not be marketed... this is what the industry knows... As Castagna said... re-launches have a LOW success rate ---- means MORE MONEY..... Cash burn will be higher than what Matt said...but intelligent people know why Matt HAD to say that...

    I don't approve of some of your posts because there is so much hatred in them.... but i definitely realize how so many have unfairly attacked you for posting truthful information they do not want to hear... especially that..... goodbrain jerk.... He is he worst.... Kevin is 2nd. MNKD is in a very bad situation, even after this Offering.... people just don't understand how bad things are.... STILL.... right NOW...

    The entire SNY relationship seems very complicated. We'll see how it all ends up but i think it will take awhile. They have secured liens for the loans, so i am sure there are lots of negotiations going on. As bad as SNY probably was, MNKD is NOT in the driver's seat now.... They have no money for any litigation and need to focus on Castanga marketing plans... As far as a SNY sabotage ---- be careful about this... People here... especially "kevinmik" is completely wrong in everything i have read tonight.... i feel bad that so many people buy into his nonsense... Bottom line is that they simply do not --- and will not get ---- the money they need to carry out Castagna's plans...assuming they even work. They DO NOT have as much time as Matt indicated, but he had to say what he did...

    Sentiment: Hold

    Don't waste your time. He is clueless and everyone who follow his comments favorably are also clueless..... no basis in reality... no experience in investing, especially in distress situations. All thay want to hear is GOOD STUFF about their investment. What a shame to not even deal in reality...

    The Q&A was like a big love-fest.... i swear half of the people chosen to ask questions were plants. So many kept saying how good everything is... when in fact that the product and the company are absolute failures at this time... Matt included. At 91 cents a share after 2 years from approval, how can it be judged any other way...? They need lots more money and it will not come from Afrezza sales soon enough.

    Sentiment: Hold
