At least one person on this board can provide something to search on, as opposed to extremely general statements.
You could have simply said, Janet Woodcock would have to 'go out on a limb' to reject the panel's recommendation, as opposed to doing the 'easy thing' and going along with the panel.
So the question is, does Janet Woodcock feel she has enough 'backing' to defend herself against the onslaught of questions from both the media and the biomedical community?
You really need to examine her options and the repercussions resulting from making each decision.
For those who have the ability to THINK, you can understand what I am stating.
For the others, I have no doubt you will make yourselves known with a 'thumbs down' indication. LOL!
Straight from the Wave Life Sciences website:
"WAVE advances exon 51 DMD candidate; initiation of first clinical trial planned for 2H 2017; candidates for other exons expected to follow"
I suppose if you want to wait 3+ years AND wait to see if the drug passes all three trials AND the drug gets FDA approval ... yeah, then Wave Life Sciences might be a good choice.
"Congress wants this approved"
Don't you mean, TWO Senators want this approved?
2 of the 535 members of Congress does not equate to "Congress".
Being there were only 12 subjects in the trial, it shouldn't be too difficult to donate directly to them.
Even if the drug is approved, the company will need to raise cash to produce the drug.
Either way, approval or not, the company will need to raise cash...I suppose the only question will be, at what share price will the dilution happen?
I guess that is somehow related to someone dumping their shares of ITI this morning?
No idea, but there is comparatively, significant volume.
I have 2 guesses, one of which might be, someone with knowledge of the testing being done in China is aware of some forward-looking, positive results.
"Nov. 18, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- B. Riley Capital Management, LLC, a unit of B. Riley Financial, Inc. (RILY), has proposed a negotiated transaction to the board of directors of United Online, Inc. (UNTD) to acquire all of its outstanding shares for $12.50 per share."
Six months later, they agree to a price 12% LOWER than before?
"May 04, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- United Online, Inc. (UNTD) (“Company”) today announced a definitive agreement under which B. Riley Financial, Inc. and certain of its affiliates (RILY) (“B. Riley”) will acquire all of United Online’s common stock for approximately $170 million in cash or $11.00 per share."
Yeah, I'd say a lawsuit definitely has merit in this case.
In the past 3 months, gold miner stocks have nearly tripled.
Could this be signaling a stock market correction on the horizon? ... Summer is fast approaching too ('sell in May and go away').
Aside from the quality of education, I feel you should also consider the psychology of it all.
I don't know your daughter's personality, but I feel most people, if they are not 'immersed' in something, they will not do as well; meaning, she may do better if she lived on campus as opposed to commuting.
I think of it like gym memberships. Thousands of people have memberships to a gym, but only a few hundred are dedicated enough to actually go on a regular basis. Convenience may also play a role in that difference, but I know people who rarely go to their gym that is literally right across the street from where they live.
Either way, I'm sure she will have the option to come home on weekends from wherever she goes. And I doubt she would stay away from 'home' for many weeks or months at a time.
A few more news articles like today will provide a convincing argument that the 'dominoes' are beginning to fall and UQM's growth has begun.
So what was it in the documents released by the FDA ahead of the drug's prior advisory committee meeting, leads you to believe an FDA approval is imminent?
"Also this should prompt positive action from Germany on their pricing and reimbursement"
Germany has a problem with the PRICE of the drug.
I haven't had much time to watch the markets.
Not only busy with work, but taking 2 college courses to keep my math teaching certification current...need to do that every 5 years or lose it. I know to some people, it is a waste of time, being that a teaching certification is not conducive to building wealth; but, money isn't everything to me.
I did notice a big reversal in the gold miners - I don't know if you still have a play in that?
Thanks for the UCO suggestion. I will try to find time to have a look at that.
I do agree, I would expect any large upward move in oil to reverse direction a few days later, having seen news articles about miles of oil tankers, full of oil, floating about. Impossible for that much oil to be processed and consumed in a matter of months, while oil production continues.
And I just saw an article this morning of Disney's huge mickey-shaped solar farm that will be going online soon; another tiny reduction in oil demand to be combined with all of the other tiny reductions...adding up.
One little stock that seems to have found some traction and positive momentum is ITI. Not a quick-profit play, but a good buy&hold stock for long-term IMO.
