  • It is hard to believe that we have virtually no change in the price of PIP while SIGA is up 18%. Where is the infamous short squeeze and why are investors not flocking to buy. Volume over past few hours is nil, as well

    Any geniuses out there ready to opine?

  • Reading the letter posted by the judge today, i.e., his decision, the net amount (he reduced the PIP amount of $139,854,510 down to $113,116,985 plus, as he indicates, prejudgement interest.

    It would appear the reduction has to do with reductions for expenses, etc in 2006 plus uses of mid-year conventions for subsequent years. Other reductions that SIGA requested have been rejected by Parsons.

    Now what happens? Is this amount going to satisfy anyone. I think, of course, SIGA would never be happy and how will share price be affected? Finally, what now happens back in BK court since we now have a number that can be plugged into the settlement talks

  • Volume is up along with a share price that is above that of recent highs. Also, share price seems to weathered the momentary dips below $1.70 that might have caused a major drop.

    Either all the tax sellers and other sellers are now gone or leaving the scene or someone smells or senses something coming, aside from technicals that might show we have been at or hit bottom.

    Any thoughts?

    Question for Judge Parsons’ consideration:

    Interesting argument on your part. A case might be made for such added remedies or damages but, I suspect, most folks, at this point, would settle for what may be on the table, and not wish to prolong matters even further.

    Has anyone checked as to whether Parsons is still breathing?

  • unfortunately, the volume is zilch and we are climbing up from a hole that has been dug deeply over the past few months.

    The weak get nervous when they get no news and whether PIP is busy negotiating with SIGA or just sitting around in the executive offices waiting for Parsons and hoping he will put the squeeze on SIGA, is hard to tell, but it caused the decline, much as obvious manipulation and closing time each day.

    Meantime, I await a puff or two of white smoke coming from the Parson chimney.
