I guess I see your point. I hate guys who try to scare weak hands into selling at every slight bump in the road. I also don't like the whole strategy involved in shorting because manipulation too often occurs.
With four hours left of trading, we could do close to 10 million shares. Whether its is investors jumping in or shorts clawing over each other trying to get to the exits, OPK could move over $16 today if the upside pressure continues.
Stupid is as stupid does. Anyone who continued to short OPK this past year was not going to hang on to their money for long anyway. I hate to see anyone lose their money, but when ttraders try to bet against and bring down a stock I own, I rather they lose out than me. I believe there were still something like 40 million shares short, so the stampede to cover may actually propel OPK up much more than I expected.
I believe doctors who prescribe Afrezza have to do spirometric testing to check lung function. The costs and fears related to dealing with possible lung issues appears to have hindered Afrezza's sales. I predict that MNKD will run into money issues before Afrezza sales can rescue them. SNY will then be in the driver's seat. I guess they have the bucks and patience to wait things out. I predict they may just buy MNKD out on the cheap if they see long term potential.
Check it out. The short interest numbers appear to be dropping on a steady basis. Considering the stock is up $6 a share over the one year period, those shorts who didn't cover have been paying dearly. It will be interesting to see the latest short numbers, especially since OPKO may be hitting a 52 week high any day. Why anyone would continue to short OPKO after the beating shorts have been taking is beyond me.
MLV&Co. disagrees with you, Frank. MNKD may have a great product, but its Afreeza launch is very disappointing. Many doctors and patients may be reluctant to try an inhaled insulin until they see that it is safe. MNKD may yet make investors money, but it appears that it may go considerable lower before it goes higher.
My conservative son is smart enough to acknowledge that you tea party types are killing the Republican Party. All your name calling. absurd acquisitions and fears, preoccupation with peoples' bedroom activities, tendency to want to be the world's policeman, etc. have no part in our political process. Although he is a conservative, he likes guys like Rand Paul who has strong conservative convictions without all the immature nonsense.
He was reportedly involved in months ago with the man who reportedly shot at him. I guess we can add road rage to Zims list of accomplishments. If only all our kids could grow up as fine as Zimmerman, hey rays! Maybe you tea party guys will run him for president. I don't know if any of his run-ins with the law would preclude him from running yet.
Christie reportedly spent 82K worth of taxpayer dollars at Jets and Giants games during the 2010 - 2011 season. Man, I know Christie was a large man, but he must be an endless pit. Ironically, NJ taxpayers paid for Christie's eats while he was really rooting for the Cowboys. Keep in mind that as a US attorney, Christie went after politicians who abused taxpayer dollars. The worm certainly has turned. Hey, maybe Christie has tape worms.
rays, you are an idiot. Zimmerman has proven he is a sleeve. He has been involved with domestic abuse problems, police problems, and gun violations sine the Trevon Martin case. Nobody made him act repeatedly like a criminal. If he was a good guy, he would have said "Thank, you Lord," after is acquittal and then proceeded with his life as usual. The life he chose as his usual is one that will eventually get him killed or land him in prison. If he is really someone you find heroic, you are one sick, demented dude. I have let his actions since his trial speak for himself and he has proven to be nothing but an abusive coward and criminal. Everytime you have a disagreement with me you call me a leftist. Maybe to you and your extremist, distorted right wing views.
The more #$%$ Zimmerman gets in, the less believable his story appears. How many girlfriends did he beat up, threaten with guns, etc. The man's a dirt bag bully, who without a gun is a coward. Beating up women and shooting a black kid does not make this guy a hero to me. But then again, I don't like Putin either!
