Can you spell
A layup for any Attorney General who wants to make a name for him/herself. I'd contribute to ridding the land of this scurrilous behavior. Institutionalized thievery a euphemism for much worse.
AF likeness could appear on the minus $50 bill. Behind bars
abeta whoever you are thank you. I have seen this happen over and over. AF spinning good news as bad and coordinated short attacks whistled by articles in Seeking Alpha and Streetsweeper. Osiris comes to mind. The money that this has cost honest investors and companies must be in the tens of billions if not more. A further example of regulatory impotence.
Maybe, just maybe, this could be the turning point. Journalists, AG's and regulators have a chance to make quite a name for themselves and restore some confidence in our financial markets.
In the Hero's journey this is the Call to Action.
Pulitzer winning journalist has uncovered what any retail investor knows well. Call for regulatory cleanup. Way past due. http://www.washingtonpost.com/business/northwest-biotherapeutics-stock-woes-highlight-the-harm-of-short-sales/2014/09/26/78b99b0a-4507-11e4-b47c-f5889e061e5f_story.html
You can almost hear some big money types planning to buy hand over fist tomorrow. This story strikes a chord with all biotech investors and many others too.
This story has legs.
I'm not an investor in NWBO but have followed it. Tomorrow I will be an investor.
Unexpected welcome. Learned a lot too. Looks like I picked a good day. Actually it picked me as the WP article mobilized me. I'm sick of AF and all that he represents.
Thanks so much.
Wouldn't want ANYone to miss this. There is no stock to borrow and no options offered. Borrow rate is 35% and merger to be completed Nov 28. Naked shorting will be "cured" by delisting from TSX.v. Major product efficacy confirmed at DellWorld. Longs are mainly early connected investors and unlikely to sell much. Insider buying has been massive and daily. A few small funds lead the shorts and they are likely to buckle soon and some may go bankrupt. ANY has disruptive software which was initially thought to be vaporware. Dell doesn't think so as they displayed it prominently on their new top of the line server stack. The momentum has swung decidedly against the shorts and all their usual tricks have failed. Join in or watch your choice. My timing has been off before but NOT THIS TIME. Look at chart for perspective. FUN
Homebuilder is an attorney who lives in a world where a rigged jury's verdict constitutes justice. Fortunately it is more difficult to rig the jury in the world of clinical trials and statistical significance although that has not prevented MiMedx from trying. No refereed journal would ever publish MiMedx Epifix data.
Could have been a large short covering but less likely as buying pressure continued unabated. Many interpretations possible but the fact remains that OSIR rose on notably large volume. And that is usually good.
Why don't you call your favorite brokerage and find out. Last I heard was that the borrow rate was greater than 30%. You don't mind paying that while you wait now do you? Assuming that you can find 1000 shares. And the TSX.v is riddled with naked shorts. Good luck with that when Sphere delists before year end. Call the company and see what they say. Denials followed by suppressed giggles. Not knowing what I know can cost you big while you spout off nonsense.
Pinetree has been buying daily and will not sell. I say this expecting Pinetree to far exceed their compliance requirement with this move in ANY. If not they will sell losers. Don't trouble yourself with Chromebooks as these sales will be in the educational space through Dell. Dell and ANY have something big cooking but that is all I know. Squeeze could double or triple price with delist forcing naked shorts in Canada to cover. Delist WILL happen and soon. Underlying disruptive tech could be worth 2-5B in two years. Also Cyrus will sell the day the company is bought out...not before. Nobody who remotely knows anything about their completely unique tech and the many area it can disrupt is considering selling ANY. My opinions spiced with a lot of knowledge and worth something.
Merger with OVRL closes Nov 29, vote is a done deal Nov 28.
Don't fret. Shorts like the price as low as possible the last trading day of the month as that is what determines their borrow costs. Easy target today with low volume. Allowed me to pick up more at $13.23 average.
Good example of what lawyers do best...obfuscation. No one claims that Epifix is not a good product. The claim is that they do not have a refereed clinical trial to back up their claims. And that the data they push is meaningless to the trained scientific evaluator. Might say an attempt to obfuscate.
Got back in today at $13.70-13.90. Amazing that it could be that low but then again OSIR has always had that characteristic. Been so occupied with ANY and XXII that this sadly has become a sidelight. And for my old buddies here look at the chart of ANY and read up....The time of wild appreciation is very very close.
There should be some shares to short soon as the shorts start to cover in earnest. This week, next week, soon for sure. However nakeds covering could raise the price to $30 at least for a few hours. Trading fake stock for real gets expensive and fast.
Good natured response. DSNY has a great product but Clipstream was not ready for prime time when they released it. They are making noises that they are nearly there and will release an updated iteration soon. As the market predictably overreacts the shareprice sold of to really idiotic lows. DSNY has an annuity business that is growing and is a monopoly in music distribution named playMPE that must be alone worth $1.50/share. The stock price is now 48cents give or take. Go figure.
ANY (Sphere) is going to be one of the stock stories of the decade and will be ubiquitous in cloud computing. Their Glassware is a new protocol like wifi or bluetooth and completely unique in its approach, not a new twist on an old tech. Dell just included them it their new server offering at Dellworld. Believe me this is the tip of the iceberg. I own 4.9% of the company and continue to be gobsmacked at the interest and expanding possibilities. And get this major companies will license the tech and sell it to their customers...Dell Ericsson Google etc so sales staff is minimal. ANY will be very profitable within 6 months. Why so ling winded. Well I have a long and fond history here and this is the single greatest disruptive company that I have ever seen and it is being validated daily. I expect the company to be bought out after a dogfight for 5-10B within 5 years and if not will displace VWM as top dog in the space. There will be 33million shares after the merger with Overland. Might buy a few. Opportune time as a short squeeze is starting...see chart.
Drag we will overlook the no money in the bank comment.....like your DD, ha ha..... but tell us why did Cyrus Capital just take down 333k shares in lieu of receiving a $2.5m loan repayment. Because they wanted shares more than the money.....must think Sphere's prospects are good.
Good doggie paddle Drag.
Those of you here may have an interest. XXII's IP can modulate the amount on nicotine in tobacco and presumably do the same with cannabinoids. This modulation can be up or down and does not reclassify as GMO.
Have licensing agreement with BTI and are listed on the NYSE (old AMEX). Low nicotine cigarettes mean less addictive ie safer. Interest from FDA (tobacco withdrawal) and contracts with NIH. Next big thing may be China as too many people dying there, of course. There may be overlap with GW in many ways the least being that they are legitimate MJ companies. XXII is having a CC with Bonnie Herzog the leading WS tobacco analyst 9/30 and is ringing the NYSE bell in mid Oct. Consider this a pump if it suites you. However my thinking was the tech would have great interest here and has far reaching ramifications. Herzog should lead to widespread exposure. The end.
I'm fine thank you. Except for the tax bill I got from selling O. Lots of zeros. Still pumping Sphere (ANY). Will dominate cloud computing within 2 years. And I know everything about the company, well sort of. Knew you were hiding here somewhere. Same old AF AF f AF. The antidote is RICO RICO. This fleecing must end. May buy 10k NWBO in am to help this turn around. RSI way oversold and there may be a cold chill in the air from the WP article. Maybe not if they are feeling reckless. You know "Pride goeth before a fall." TBC
You are all over it.
A great and accurate read. Market cap of $154m. Are you kidding me. Innovation and IP in a $700B industry not counting MJ or other agricultural opportunities or pharmacological plays. This company's IP could have the largest impact on reducing lung ca rates resulting from less cigarette addiction.
If this isn't the biggest steal on WS it has to be in the top 10.
And we fret that the CEO got lucky and sold a small portion of his holdings near the high. After enduring years with a 50 cent stock who wouldn't sell some at $6. What planet do these posters inhabit?
