    Volume uptick in anticipation for results and then a huge volume uptick on sponsored article, play has always been to jump on board with funds while volume is up, then as volume peters to previous levels the shares go into sideways mode awaiting next event/article/volume increase. I still have core position and have left that to do what it will do, but I've traded around the predictability for going on 15 months now, adding more shares each time via profits from the last round and then systematically shaving profits out to cash as the positions get ridiculous. The result has been real cash in my pocket, a very happy tax man at the end of the year, and a position that no longer hurts if it goes to zero but could wake me up one morning in a few years with another fine nest egg to hatch.

    I've got a sell in for 3.25 for a small portion of my CPRX shares(7%). It's just not prudent for my trading strategy to leave it ALL on the table at well over a double.
