    There are no shorts? In this day and age, it is dangerous (to your integrity) to make such sweeping statements. All you have to do is go to pinksheets and look up short position. There were 64MM shares as of 4/29 and that was after the BK announcement and 550MM total shares traded in that period! Took about 1 minute to check. There is something called Google, you know? It's quite ironic that you talk about lack of knowledge...

    Major manipulation

    The yanking around of the stock outside the wide bid and ask range shows that there is very little supply (free float) and the stock is unstable at these ultra low prices. The MMs got to let this trade higher to coax some sellers to give up their shares prior to the inflection point that is coming in less than 2 weeks...

    After setting base camp at the 50 DMA for the past 3 days, we are now moving on our way towards the 200 DMA ($10). All prior results indicate a nice revelation at the ASCO. You can see they are trying to contain their enthusiasm by giving us a 3 week head start - LOL!...

    Bought back 9K shares

    pmt, we still have 17 months left on the stay order on TEVA's ANDA for Q - unless there is some sort of settlement between the two prior to that. I would think there needs to be a resolution there before it opens the way for an acquisition by TEVA or another BP. It looks very unlikely that there will be a partner for Stendra as we are almost in June now. Sales are probably not going to impress in the meantime. I am buyng only trading shares for now and will sell higher if there is no earth shattering news between now and end of June. Sort of like your option call buying but with more capital and less risk..

  • just now to add to my core in my IRA. Will add more if it keeps moving up on decent volume. $1.11-12 might have been the low for this cycle, maybe......

    was the most irrelevant PR posted under VVUS. Must be by accident (I think) but good enough to get this up 5% today. And the dude is talking about bankruptcy in the video! I guess anything is better than Seth's cold shoulder...

    Who said anything about current shareholders sharing in the fruits of the "new" Sun Edison? That is an assumption you made . If the lawyers for the unsecured creditors can prove fiduciary malfeasance by any of the officers, they will get an award for the shareholders. How much is anybody's guess. The speculation about what will happen on June 7 and beyond itself could get this high enough for many shareholders (who bought under $2) to get a moral victory and leave with less losses. You are truly underestimating the power of profit taking by shorts and there are 60+ million shares still left...

    They were a potential buyout candidate ever since they decided to terminate the partnership with Takeda. Not because of a 3 cent rise - LOL! I am not as short sighted as you.

    and we are just getting started for the countdown to June 6. We should cross the 50 DMA ($6) next week and approach the 200 DMA ($10) before then. Imagine if their therapy can be applied down the road to several forms of cancer, not just lymphoma?

    Yes, the little guy fights back. I am not saying this will be another American Airlines or a phoenix rising from the ashes kinda situation. But it could very well give some long suffering shareholders an opportunity to exit at prices before the BK announcement (0.34 to 1.50). And if they were able to average down, maybe even break even...

    Good close at the high for a change. And there was that mysterious 7MM volume day on May 10. Volume precedes price. Fair value is 75 cents and that is fully discounting Contrave IP or giving nothing for it. Another partnership (for West Europe) will be a good catalyst for starters. Or a buyout offer from VRX after they put their accounting/price gouging scandals behind them.

    Nothing is guaranteed in the market. A $10MM fund was set up today for the unsecured creditors to investigate SUNEQ officers and the presiding judge wants a committee for shareholders now. Speculation is a great thing when you have 64MM shorts trying to get out before something untoward happens to their position. For starters, a steady run up to June 7...

    By Peg Brickley

    Troubled solar power developer SunEdison Inc. has agreed to allow its unsecured creditors to take on the role of bankruptcy investigators, probing for grounds for potential lawsuits against directors, officers and others involved in its troubles.

    Announced at a bankruptcy court hearing in New York, the agreement was reached in talks about SunEdison's finance package, which was under attack from junior creditors wary of allowing the company to go even deeper in debt........

    The settlement creates a $10 million war chest for the official committee of unsecured creditors to investigate SunEdison. The point of the probe will be to find whether there is evidence to support lawsuits against the company's leaders and "others," said Arik Preis, lawyer for a group of SunEdison lenders.

    In addition, SunEdison's bankruptcy financiers, which are also the company's senior lenders, agreed to free up for junior creditors up to $50 million of insurance coverage available under the company's officers and directors liability insurance coverage...

    I don't think he looks that stupid anymore. He took action with a $40K investment while others were just crying on the message board. Kudos to him and the other two who took the time and effort to get the judge to act. And he did!!

    Holy Moly! They did it. A huge vote of thanks to Sven Gothel, Sergey Smolin and Ditman. If the judge wants it, he will get it! I am buying more as this should now run till June 7.

    I am still here. 15K shares long and strong. With the overhand from the secondary behind us, this should finally start running back towards the 52 week high. Too much potential to be sitting down here. I wonder why management couldn't wait to get a better price for it's shares. Could have minimized the dilution by waiting till $4-5. Anyway, they gave me an opportunity to buy down here.

    Thanks. Things are heating up. I wonder what price or news will trigger short covering from the remaining 60MM shares held. That will lead to a massive run up (to 60-70 cents) if that happens.

    Reduced my holdings to a level I can hold for several years, assuming things improve (as Paulson and I expect - LOL!) in the future. I bought large to bring my average down to $15 and exited the excess once it went above my cost basis. AMAG and HZNP are my other specialty pharma holdings...

    Low volume but when did we last see pre-market trades on this super low free floater? I am buying on any pullback like yesterday. $10 by Jun 6 is reasonable to expect...
