    Whats going ebay auction site feels dead

    eBay is making it tough on the unique seller. If you sell drop ship item or in bulk, no problem, you sell collectibles, high-end fashion, etc. eBays policies are becoming crushing. A ton of fraud. I see bid shilling weekly, and buyers are drying up. I have a consistent following but traffic is down 40 - 70% since 3 years ago. I still sell well, but fewer, higher margin, and see the writing on the wall. In next 16 months 25% of the small sellers who are there now will be gone. Most people shrug and say so what.... they may be 5% of what eBay sells / carries. The difference? there 25% of the small sellers are the ones who carry UNIQUE and hard to find items. People go to eBay because they can't find these things anywhere else. When those sellers are gone, more people will be going to the non-eBay sites with or without brick and mortar presence.

    Under a buck would be great. I still remember loading up last time it was there.

    How many millions of dollars was NVAX Barda contract. This award is $500K, which pretty much covers the cost of one decent researcher, some office space and a years worth of Starbucks.

    BS. They left $20M - $25M on the table. Offering was a GIFT and want to know why they left 20% of what they should have raised off the table.

    Buy into it? My cost basis is BELOW $2. I have been long in this POS a long time.

    What I am #$%$ about is the $20M - $25M left on the table. This offering should have been a lot higher and closer to $5.

    I am #$%$ at the manipulation, and more #$%$ at Erck and co for the poor valuation of the offering. I am fine with them raising cash and would rather they go to market in the future on their own and own more of the licensing, but when I see a stock priced all week $4.60 - $5.00 and their offering comes in at $4?

    Even with some of the down pressure over the last few months, this is a $5 stock not a $4 stock and valuing it at the bottom is a bad move. They left $20M - $25M on the table that they should have had, which is nothing to sneeze at and plenty to be upset over, I started buying in 2005 and was catching the falling knife 2006 on...

    Seriously, Rahul would have even done better.

    RAPE!!!!

    I have no problem with the offering, and in general support it. Problem I have is with either the pricing or the blatant manipulation. It is probably JP Morgan because they are #$%$ to begin with, but that aside they have the cash where they could have waited for a better period and I would have preferred to see this prices $4.50+ to even closer to $5. For that dilution at $5, they would have doubled there cash position and had another $20M+ compared to what they got. 12% discount from previous close and 20+% discount from 48 hour high, that is just wrong.

    No mater how you look at it, the price was 15%+ lower that the trading range this whole week.

  • Long and short of it... Stan Erck deserves to be in prison being violated daily for the way we just got violated. Seriously. This is criminal and as a long time holder, worst I have seen this company do.

    As one of the longest members posting off and on here on this board - this offering is PURE RAPE.

    20% haircut where average price last 2 weeks has been more $4.60 to $4.80 with periods above $5????

  • dlaskey dlaskey Jun 5, 2014 2:59 PM Flag

    Yeah, like maybe something like running an accelerated MERS trial along side all the other things they are doing...

    Why does a company that has around a year and a half of cash go out and pretty much double down? Especially at this time, and especially when it creates a quiet period before a conference?

    Sounds to me like they will be running an additional set of trial arms for other segments along side their current trials which to me is screaming MERS.

    Sorta sucks for dilution, but at the same period could me late 2015 all of the sudden they have a pipeline of 3 - 4 products.

    When (not if) Novavax brings approved vaccines to market, they will have a nice steady flow of cash. Seems to me they are gearing up to launch multiple streams at the same period and on their dime which means if the above is correct, the valuation really gets big.

    And if you think of it... If Novavax starts churning out Vaccine A Q3 2015, Vaccine B Q4 2015, Vaccine C Q1 2016, etc... this starts to have a huge pipeline of revenue, cash as well as establishes as the dominant manufacturer of vaccines.
