I agree as well to a point. They have put out some serious cash for Afrezza as well and their profit margin would be vey high to the % they own of sales in totality for Apidra. \
You would have to believe that they would want to push a little harder to get Afrezza into the market as the %ages are in their favor. I don't know the deal structure for the other or the debt structure to push that dead horse around.
Its like that old belnder its okay but the new one is much, much better and more efficiant and does a better job.
I also really like the debt restucturing and the ramping up. For sure thing are looking pretty good for the months ahead.
There is always a possibilty of partner or BO. The co has showed they are ready to produce at the new factory facility. You don't do that for show and tell. Regardless of what some here may try to push off as nothing. All it takes is one big PR which can happen at any time. Buying this under a buck is a gift, buying this in this range is a steal.
Yes they Conspiracy theories are prevelant and numerous for sure. If they can create doubt they have accomplished some of their objective with what they spout daily. The changing of the meds is what makes this very important as discussed many times. I grew up with close family diabetics and know for certainity that if this option was avalable in the 60s and 70s that a change from the needles to an inhale would have been excitedly accepted. Pricking yourself daily with needles doesn't appear to be very pleaqsant nor should it be.
I also don't believe that the insurance play any big big role one way or the other as a person may choose the option. Yes these message boards are very, very deceitful for sure. When there is any money involved yet alone monster money you can bet that there is a lot of people involved with their hands out and do the bidding for others. These guys have 10s of billions to toss around and there are plenty who will take some of it no question. For MNKD I have full confidence and no doubt what so ever that they will more than succed with Afrezza and other pipeline drugs in years to come. Going to 10 is a no brainer for me personally but that isn't it. IF it doesn't spike and moves as a "normal" movement I can see a far greater pps. GLTY
The bashers and or basher with many IDs have been here for ever or so it seems. There is always an agenda and manipulation tied to every stock. The DD and current press releases will guide most of what you need to know. You sure won't find anything worth while on any messgae boards that is 100% clean and honest. That applies to hit bloggers, investing sites, investment recommendations and the tv programs as well. Unless you are one that likes to be told what to do and will follow any one into the deep waters. This is tired for sure and most have caught on but many also are being led around by their noses. This co has a lot going for it and when it catches fire it will be too late the house will already have been burnt to the ground and shorty will be homeless and will have to find another place to live.
I believe that the big truth behind all this is the fact that the shorts bet very heaviely that they would never get approved in the first place. Since approval this has been slammed by every blogger and short basher on message boards big time. They constantly on a daily and nightly basis tell how bad things are from most all sources known. Why is that, why so much venom. Why do they want you to sell if you own the stock or not buy in at all to create any demand. Pretty simple IMO. They need to cover their short and move on. ""Any"" positive will be met with 10 fold bashing and hit bloggers right behind them. Is the stock worth 25.00 at this time probably not but it is indeed undervalued and "shiould be" trading 3xs the current pps or there about. Of course I am crazy and don't know or understand squat unless you are of the same mind.
Most shorts will tell you it means nothing but in fact it is a big deal. They are preparing for much larger sales as the adds pick up world wide by sny. Let them have their fun. May take a little while while a few months to 6 months but when the numbers increase huge in that time period what will the shorts have to say then. Ramping up production is a very big deal make no mistake about it.
A slickster who has made his way by being a performer. The hidden agenda and manipulation is obvious to me. Lot of smoke and mirrors. I would not be shocked or surprised that those recommendation to sell as you list were not being bought up by him or someone close to hid the purchases. Buy when they say sell and sell when they say buy is the old word. His crew at the street have their orders to follow I am sure. Buy, sell, hold, bash ans slam. Very seldom you will geat an article that praises a co or a co they like, very rare. What does that tell you.
For those of use who are actually investors don't understand this in the least. IMO this is so undervalued. When is was over a dollar it had less going for it thatn it does right now. Makes absouletely no sence what so ever. Every small move gets met with short selling. Every bit of bad mkt news takes it down, EU, China ect. But when that fear is eliminated this does not retrace as normal with others that were shorted during the fear factor manipulation time. Too many things don't fit here with in the trading. Need very serious demand for one the other is we would like to know who is doing the controlling and trading with in this manipulation.
Matthew Pfeffer, MannKind’s chief financial officer, said he expects sales to pick up as Sanofi launches a direct-to-consumer marketing campaign. This month, Sanofi placed a three-page advertisement in Time magazine, seeking to increase consumer awareness of the new drug. It has also expanded sales staff assigned to market the drug, Pfeffer said.
“Advertising and new Internet-based marketing efforts did not begin until this quarter, so their effects have not yet been seen,” Pfeffer said in an email.
SNY was slow to start the advertising and really started this month to a much needed campaign to get the word out. We would like to see some TV as well to reach the masses. This indicates to me that they are now going to do their job and the numbers of users should increase 10 fold. It was also duely noted that many users are using facebook and the internet to get the word out themselves stating how good it is to use. Having this slow start with less than a wisper seems to have gotten louder and many more will now hear the word.
I guess the sky didn't fall after all, isn't that interesting. I suppose it was an apple that fell on the shorts head and the reason they jumped in a bucket of sht with both feet. Have No fear the hound dogs will still bark at the moon even when the sun is up.
Traders, shorts and investors looking for this double bottom. Well it is here for sure. Everyone will be loading up on the cheap for the move up and make tons going back over $5 in a few days. Mkt play and manipulation in full swing. Why kill the cash cow now. Going to be a long haul for investors that are in higher and have been holding anywhere from 10 down. Be prepared for that - unless you are a trader or short. Look at a min 6 mo out - unless ther is an offer for the co.
The sales numbers you state are right. I am with you as stated in paragraph 4. In to the end. Break even sound good to me but that is a long way off for me as well.
I agree as well. The short manipulation is in full swing. Alot to do about nothing. Pre-mkt shows manipulation with trade on average of 100 shares or less to paint the tape. Tons of inter mkt swapping. Everyone is looking for an end to this for sure. With sny stating they are looking to start buying cos we could be on the table in line with a BO. I would not be surprised as they are already invested and it would not take much of an offer. Who knows they may be behind some of the selling to drive it down to low ball. Nothing surprises me in the mkt with manipulations and Conspiracies abound.
The Q numbers will be very good and 3 is a short term tgt that is in line and a long term of 6.00 with upgrades.
I don't know about your charts however I do believe this bottom has been set for sure. 1.53 would be a decent move but that isn't it after the dumb sell off "buy the shorts "from the China"" fears and manipulation. By the way we are so unconnected to that it was a joke in the first place. It will bounce around for sure as they cover and the traders trade. I'm in for the long haul, how ever long that may be I'll wait untill I see a steady in the $3s. Hit that high and was shorted down to here, that retrace is what I am looking for. It was good enpough to get there once it will do it again and that was before much better news and excelent analysis recommendations of $5.00. Let'em yap who cares. Everyone knows the game.
Lol we all knew this was coming today or should have from the king of hit bloggers for sure. Could'n type fast enough this a to get this hit piece out. Although there is a lot of back and forth over this and other hit pieces the shorts are winning the battle. This is not the only thng MNKD has going for it either. Keep all that in mind as well. The shortsd will have you focus on what they want to focus on, that's their job. Give it a couple of days or a week and there will definetely be a rebound in the high 5s. Even so that is not the pps we are looking for on the long side.
Absolutely 100% correct a lot to do about nothing - except for the short spin and selling into stop losses as usuall. You have the hit parade here and you will soon have the hit bloggers right behind them. ""Investors"" are not selling because of this news that is for sure, bet on that. Buying opp for real. The lenders will get theirs +. You don't believe that they lend money on a whim, they have a lock up and the inside scoop. They will do very, very well in a month or two. Besides barking at the moon and grabbing at straws one should get behind the numbers. Interesting about this pr is that sny is giving an update tomorrow.
That is a big deal and sets up for funds to jump in long term. Excelent indicator that this will turn big time. I believe with this last wash out and taking stops more short was covered and more yet will cover before a retracement back over $2.00 which is still well below the analysis tgt of $5.00
SNY will be talking about mnkd drug tommrow. I believe they will be more positive than the bloggers with the on track numbers and percentages. and year end goals. If their projections are ahead of the curve we should have a good year from here out. We'll see what they have to say. Double digits by years end is possible but will be rough considering the short manipulation, heavy house bashing and hit bloggers. Going to be tough getting them out of play but continued goods news may just do that
I don't know if the hedge funds play like this. To me at least it appears more like traders with deep pockets who can manipulate. Funds are not going after a penny here and a penny there they have bigger fish to fry. Not saying it is not possible just saying IMO I don't believe so. I could be wrong
