    Some nice call buys today Jan 7.5 and Jan 10 and Feb 10. Good volume today on a quiet day. We should head higher before ACLF data out. Good results can propel CNAT to 300M market cap.

    I did find a Nov 19th presentation which is the week after the earnings release and stated that ACLF results are due 4Q 2014. From the earnings, I assumed we will be getting the results in January but we might get them this month.

    I went on their website and can't find the presentation.

  • Dr. David Bernstein, chief of hepatology at North Shore University Hospital in Manhasset, N.Y., called the Conatus drug exciting and the initial trial a sensible approach.

    "There's limited downside because there's nothing else that can be done anyway," said Bernstein, who expects to be involved in future emricasan trials. "If you can reverse cirrhosis, you really will change the impact of liver disease worldwide."

    Drugs that succeed in reversing cirrhosis "can be as big a class as the class of statins," said Conatus's Mento, referring to cholesterol drugs, such as Pfizer's Lipitor, which alone at its peak had annual sales of about $13 billion

  • With positive phase 2 results, we should expect CNAT to reach 300M market cap and potentially as high as 500M with traders pushing it to those levels. It reminds of KERX when it jumped to about 500M market cap after their P2 results. Sweet spot in biotechs are phase 2 so if we get positive results we should move up. ACLF market is estimated at $2-3B per year and CNAT only company with ongoing trials.

    Last patient was enrolled on or near Oct 1st and took the drug for 28 days. Let's assume it takes 2 weeks for them to get results bring us to a timeline between now and November 19th. Stock is being manipulated and seems like it does not want to go up. Very frustrating to watch but let's see if we can get the ACLF results soon to change direction.
