    Curtsey, you're simply going off a reversion to the mean. This is a volatile trading stock. I fully expect that we will go one standard deviation BELOW that - so lower your sights by a full point. 14.35 is quite likely.

    Just SHORTED ANOTHER 25,000 at 16.51

    Not exactly. To be truthful, my latest short I was forced to cover at a .33c loss. Live to fight another day if you catch my drift. I'll be back to short again as there are still plenty of funds in my account from previous wins. I'll let you know when Im short again - probably sometime after we test 17.00 tomorrow. Puke Stevens was right to get in at 16.50 but somebody faded his call for the squeeze. Poor slob. Glad it wasn't me. But mark my words, I will be shorting as soon as the current squeeze ends.

    Sonoran, you sound bitter, angry that this fellow has made more money than you in EXAS. Shouldn't you be happy for him and the success he's had betting on your favorite toad?

    What you know, or more like, what you THINK you know are utter nonsense Linda.

  • And who could blame them? With such a low float this thing could actually get half way to their $22.00 target subsequently turning many of them into melted cheese. lol! Good luck fellas!

  • crapnebula crapnebula Jun 10, 2014 9:06 PM Flag

    Why? So birdbrains like you can use it to line the bottom of your cages? No thank you!

  • Be careful here kids. It could be a good while before FDA approval and plenty of time for "fun and games" by all the wrong people if you know what I mean.

  • crapnebula crapnebula Jun 2, 2014 9:36 PM Flag

    That sounds like a good strategy Lynnxx. I commend your vision and I welcome to the EXAS board where all points of view are of benefit despite what might be implied by the board "trolls" (bullies).
    So good luck with your MNKD. I too have followed that company through it's ups and down and it's never looked better. I know your strategy will be a positive experience for you regardless of how high EXAS goes from here, MNKD will undoubtedly go higher - IF they get FDA approval (and I think that's a given for both companies). As to the revenue generating capabilities of each, the statistics are in, and the incidence of diabetes is unfortunately astronomical and growing at an alarming rate. So much so in fact, that it dwarfs even that of colo-rectal cancer.
    Best of luck Lynxx and please do keep posting. We need alternative viewpoints around here -badly.

    KC may be "no dummy" but he's not superman either. The right entity need only lobby and acquire 50.01% of the voting shares from the other large holders and the company must then accept the offer or a competing offer with or without KCs approval. With a mere 134k shares, Conroy hasn't the voting wherewith to prevent any 51% agreement made between the mutual and hedge fund stake holders. These are the #$%$ who represent any serious threat to this stock ever rising past 30.00 per share. Besides, with the poison pill in place, he and his cronies will get bought of in the most lucrative of terms and probably remain onboard to run the new 'division'.

    Im not claiming to KNOW this, but what I've witnessed (not participated in but witnessed) in the past is the actual payment by an acquiring entity to the holder of 3rd party voting shares. Since there is no such thing as a "negative vote" to correspond to the short shares, then "votes" can be acquired with a boxed hedge that makes no money on the underlying one way or the other - but the VOTES have value if you own enough of them! So what harm can come to an entity or entities who employ this method of holding boxed hedges to be "sold" to the highest bidder once a proxy fight evolves?

    If enough shares are garnered by a potential acquirer in favor or against a buyout before the final verdict, then it's a "no contest" when the showdown at the OK Coral commences- he's got the votes he needs to guarantee his buyout price (or block as the case may be). In exchange for acting as a holders of votes, a 3rd party "proxy" firm takes a standard 10% fee of the amount held.

    So lets say just 12 of the 24 million short shares were in fact proxy holders, at 10.00 (say) average price per share they represent 120 Million Dollars. If their fee is 10% they recieve 12 million dollars for putting on a riskless trade where the cost of carrying their long side of the hedge is offset to within 1/2 % by the infusion of cash into their short account - they lose a half percent on the 10% in a risk free trade.
    This kind of arb is ONLY reasonable when there is a relative amount of certainty that a buyout WILL occur.
    I think that this has certainly been the case ever since the AdCom.

    Wax, you're too smart for your own good. Do you actually believe that Wall St analysts are honest?
    They are CLEARLY acting at the behest of a large client. One way or another.

    Don't feel bad Quaff,
    You're no dumber than the average retail client.
    Im not saying the entire 20 million, never said that. I just used examples to point to a practice that is widely accepted and yes the big brokers can participate as 3rd party proxies if they are hired to do so. It happens all of the time. Which of course gives rise to the Wedbush downgrade. What do you make of that?

    Go back and READ quaffer. My god your comprehension is poor. The "entity" is actually multiple entities under the umbrella of a single benefactor. These accounts are called "PROXIE" accounts for a reason. Go do your homework son and then give us a report.

    Yes, I can be juvenile but you should see the things I've had to put up with.To clarify my veiw, the acquirer will likely only be purchasing the position (both sides) in exchange for the voting rights held within the long side of the hedge. Once the buyout occurs and a price has been set, the two sides will be swapped out of existence. In the meantime the hedger makes 2.7% overnight bank money on the funds brought into his account by the short - cancelling out his cost of carrying the long side. In addition, riskless option strategies can be employed from both sides simultaneously for additional income. In the end, the hedger can also make up to 10% in facilitating the deal- agreed up front to paid by the acquiring entity -all at no risk to the hedger and all while providing anonymity to the acquiring company.
    This is not exactly how it will go down here. Nobody has a crystal ball, but I can assure you there are at least SOME players currently engaged in the aforementioned strategy re: EXAS
