"Only 5%" ...that's the problem Blackmango why few on the GERN pond agree with your "downer" yet semi-compelling posts. U ALWAYS bring out the half empty glass thesis, all the time maintaining you are a belieber beaver erroring on the downside of current data . Even Alfalski's funeral parlor up in Pugwash Station presents a more uplifting atmosphere.
The few MAYO patients like John that were lucky enough to have received IMET and were basically "saved" by the drug were in a group that had exhausted all previous MF treatment and had no where else to turn. Many of these patients were so severely advanced that even administering IMET was too late for them. Had such treatment been available to them earlier, like John many more would have benefitted and still be alive today. Also as the genetic variation of targeted patients is studied I'm venturing to guess that the remission rate for a new "controlled" intake IMET patient trial cold produce results closer to the 100% mark. I'm erroring on the upside. Only 100% ???
...with any partial release it would certainly clear the parking lot outside of GERN's Menlo office of all the ambulance chasers parked there now.
Reg SHO Threshold List
REG SHO Overview
As defined in Rule 203(c)(6) of Regulation SHO, a “threshold security” is any equity security of any issuer that is registered under Section 12 of the Exchange Act, or that is required to file reports under Section 15(d) of the Exchange Act (commonly referred to as reporting securities), where, for five consecutive settlement days:
•There are aggregate fails to deliver at a registered clearing agency of 10,000 shares or more per security;
•The level of fails is equal to at least one-half of one percent of the issuer’s total shares outstanding; and
•The security is included on a list published by a self-regulatory organization (SRO).
A security ceases to be a threshold security if it does not exceed the specified level of fails for five consecutive settlement days.
GERN is not registered on the SHO list so I doubt there is much if any naked short positions.
Downside gaps; Mar-12-2014 4.35 to 1.82

bring on the gap filler caulking gun
Jun-12-2014 upside gap 2.77 to 3.05. Why are the downside gaps always the ones to get filled?
It's human nature's underlying desire to believe in integrity, free play and a worthwhile value added causes hoping to gain something from honest investing. Unfortunately the system has gone to shmuck where investors have little to no control over their investments. It has encouraged a day trading culture as the only means to make and keep gains. As much as technology has leveled the playing field we see corruption and wanton greed rule the markets. Barclay's dark pool trading fraud was the latest in a long string of activities conducted against the investment community. If America is to regain it's position of global leadership it must first regain a reputation of integrity by cleaning house. The SEC needs teeth, not some worn out dentures Maine keeps in a jar beside his night stand.
Mgott, what's your definition of neutral territory?
Well clearly 'they' can. So when will you cover your position? Looks cheap enough right now.
Don't think for one minute that partisanship isn't part of the plan. Just another word for critter control. Did anything major change on Wall Street or State Street with either party at the helm?

Curious akadvisor of the three, GALE, GERN. and ACHN which do have the greatest conviction for?
I almost choked in laughter whilst swimming and reading this on my water proof Ipad. INCY has a $10Bil market cap for a make belief relief drug Jakafi. GERN has the drug for remissions. I hardly think $4-$7 would even come close to IMET`s potential. I`ve seen scenarios where SP could rise to $40 on such speculative potential.
