    As usual pj, you deflect and never respond to any details that might shine that positive light that only you seem capable of seeing. I will ask you again, and its a reasonable question; do you think given the underperformance of company shares, that Ma has earned his 600k pay package? Any details will be appreciated.
    And while answering that one, you might also address this ; have you earned your pay package?

    And mr Pollyanna PJ, just how many more decades will shareholders have to wait for this good news? Friggin waiting for Godot.
    You and ma are a joke.
    Ma is a disgrace. Salary package of 600k . Do you think he has earned that Mr PJ?????

    Anyone here who listens to the timing and price on when to maybe buy rgrx from sno needs to have their heads examined. Tax selling is a thing of the past here, don't count on it now to push shares lower.
    This stock has seen its lows, headed higher, without sno & co.

    Lots of Nov 25 puts bought yesterday at 8.5. These were right on offer. Someone is looking for lower prices very soon.

  • bocamp1 by bocamp1 Oct 29, 2014 5:12 PM Flag

    Stock had a different look to it towards the end of the day. We had a little more volume and then a size market on both sides .48x.50 with 25k on both sides. Usually that bid would get taken out but today it did not. I am guessing trial news very soon.

    What stock you talking about. No call volume here today and little all week

  • bocamp1 by bocamp1 Oct 28, 2014 5:09 PM Flag

    Hey b7, I know you see the high there today. Maybe ebola push, or not. Doesn't really matter as action there is good. Remember when good ol' sno was bashing the heck out of it when it was a penny stock. Same thing is about to happen here.....................

    GULTU rallied nicely into the close.

  • DTD 9/28/14. The Post doesn't do fluff pieces. They have clout and if enough pressure is put on politicians the worm will turn very quickly. There is no way the naked short position here can be covered without a huge price spike. You can google whole article

    The Post article explains how hedge funds can manipulate and actually control the stock prices of small biotechnology companies through short selling strategies. Short sales are done by borrowing shares from another party that owns the shares. These shares can be sold in the market without the seller ever owning them. The short seller must at some time in the future purchase the shares. While short selling is perfectly legal, some short sellers simply don’t bother to borrow the shares. This is naked short selling and it is illegal according to the Washington Post. This can result in overwhelming price pressure on a stock by an unending stream of naked short sells.

    Integral to the naked short selling is the operation of dark pools by brokerage firms. It is widely alleged by small biotech companies and their investors that dark pools don’t enforce the requirement for a short seller to deliver borrowed stock within three days of shorting. It is alleged that hedge funds can create an unlimited supply of stock through naked shorting. The compliance officers of the brokerage firm have turned a blind eye to this practice. This could change. The Attorney General of New York is already investigating dark pools for high frequency trading. He can easily expand the investigation to see if they are involved in naked shorting.

    The hedge funds use very complex trading strategies that involve trading in dark pools, high frequency trading and sophisticated put and call strategies. They use this technique to walk a stock down. In this technique, a group of hedge funds conspire to systematically take out all bids for stocks for days on end with short selling

    dump finkel

    One thing we know about SNO, he/she never relents. It doesn't matter right or wrong he will push his bias ad nauseam. When he was fighting with Mia, he played the ultimate jilted lover.
    So, he is now hell bent on rehashing the past in regard to Fink, when he knows Fink is going nowhere. This is classic Sno. He has now articulated his reason for not buying rgrx. Its Fink.
    Sno will never buy rgrx, and Fink has little to do with it. But, it will now become his more aggressive storyline as to why RGRX will never make it. And when he is proven wrong again, as he was with scln, he/she will quietly disappear; off to play the disgruntled "bullish" investor somewhere else.
    Sno is a tool; an instrument of a greater short cabal. As the gains here get more real, he will have to post much more often, and it will be just more of the same. Sno is a loser hoping to steal potential gains from all potential investors; just ask any who ignored his warnings on scln and were richly rewarded.
    The only history that matters here now is Sno's. And that guide tells us to stay very long as shareholders are about to hit another winner. We should all thank him for his consistency; the ultimate contrarian indicator.

    Fl, I know the history here better than anyone.
    1-Withdrawal of interest here by the Italians was due to the death of one of the bros. He was the angel financer.
    2-Fink has done the poorest of poor jobs over the years. I get it. But, he gets kudos for accepting no salary for years in order to keep rgrx a going concern. And McNay gives management all the street cred they need now. He never baled also.
    3- Sno posts here many things. You are a fool if you think he does it for our benefit. He has an agenda, and it is not rgrx shareholder friendly. Take that to the bank. He tried same nonsense in the penny scln days, and lost his butt.
    I own many shares and have been buying much around that 10 - 14 cent level. All the missteps here have allowed me to do so. So, to keep repeating how much everyone hates Fink is just a bore and counter productive. Its the playoffs now, and what was done during the season has been wiped clean.
    So, lets see what happens going forward. I couldn't be more bullish and don't care about the past. Good Luck

    You will never get it. By the time all the answers are given to you concerns, stock will be a buck. So, it begs the question why do you waste so much time here since you do not buy. You do plenty of DD, but ALWAYS bias in a negative fashion. You either enjoy wasting your time, or like the short side.
    It really doesn't matter, as shorts here are the fodder for big gains ahead.

  • bocamp1 by bocamp1 Oct 24, 2014 12:37 PM Flag

    Problem with sno and some others is that they have been around too long and have seen all the failures. Their perspective makes it almost impossible to see the sea change that is about to take place. And thus, not to be buyers. Mismanagement is the reason stock price has been on sale forever. But, this presents a great risk reward for some. Big gains are made in such stocks and companys and by definition, few participate.
    Buying here still has much risk, but buyers here have the real potential of seeing that illusive 10+bagger.

    THere's the PR. No trial mention

    bocamp1 bocamp1 Oct 23, 2014 2:02 PM Flag

    No one expected a trial mention. Why post when none buy you had these non factual expectations. You continue to post like a short.
    PR was very good and will justify future partnerships.

    This is classic Sno-speak. You set up a result in your own mind that must happen, and of course when it does not, you post negative drivel.
    Henry Ford will announce when they see fit. No one, other than you, is insisting it must happen today. Things are happening, just not on your timetable. As Aaron Rodgers says............Relax.....................

    Stop looking to the past for future moves Patents will prove valuable soon enough.. And to you case of salaries, Fink basically went without one for a couple years to keep company afloat. I challenge anyone here to find another CEO(who is not wealthy) who has done that.
    So if you don't like the risk/reward here at .15, move on.
