    A little help perhaps

    Absolutely. One must keep a view of the weaknesses in any stock, even if the overall conclusion is that the strengths will eventually enable the company to succeed. SJS, your list is exactly the one that any thinking person has to keep in mind for CGEN when making buy, hold, sell decisions. Clearly, many traders/investors do not want to buy now, and that is why we see red on a day like today. I would add, however, that trading this week is influenced by the holidays, and so the diminished volume allows for greater push-pull (less politely known as manipulation) of the stock price. When the traders who are on holiday return, we will get a clearer picture of how much longer the negative evaluation will trump the known positives.

    I agree with biomed completely, sbh. Thanks for always providing intelligent. helpful information/analysis, whatever its level of statistical significance.

    Coming from you. elbit, one of the mb posters here who has really done the homework necessary to make an informed decision, that means a great deal. Thanks for adding your comments.

    A Sorters Dream

    What's a sorter? Does she sell sea shells at the sea shore? What kind of dreams does she have? Does she dream about her bad spelling, and how she was laughed at when she could not spell "short" correctly? I hope she has learned this simple lesson: If you want to be taken seriously, you must show you can think and work seriously.

    I wonder how that percentage changed again this week, not just for this stock, but for the whole biotech sector. I suspect the number of short sellers increased in a momentum dive, which will be in our favor when the tide turns.

    Funny and true. Whatever forces are influencing the markets today, they are temporary, and each individual company will live or die by its performance over the long haul.
    The problem is that these temporary events suggest we have flaws in the system that allow a very few powerful institutions (sorry, MG, you are not on the list) to make life miserable for many independent investors who can be pushed out of the market, where a more principled market would allow the small investor to remain invested and solvent. I had hoped for more market reforms from our current administration, but I guess that was naive on my part.

    Sheep, BTW, I've always considered that term "orderly sell off" a sly oxymoron, a marketing tool designed to divert the less observant from the seriousness of the problem. "You see," the marketing masters of Wall Street say,"we are really quite benign, almost dignified in the way we destroy the wealth of others. We even create the destruction in an 'orderly' manner."

    True, we might not be seeing capitulation yet, which often comes on higher volume. However, the numbers of mom and pop investors that used to be in the market are not there today. Remember, many people have not forgotten 2008-09, and are simply sitting on the sidelines. So, the previous source of the higher volume, as the individual investors panicked and ran for the exits all at once, may not be there either. In other words, once the institutional managers are confident that they have cleared out the few remaining individual investors, the sell off will abate. In order to get down to $8, we will have to hear some extremely bad news, Perhaps trouble in the Ukraine could be that bad news, but so far the Russians seem satisfied with the Crimean peninsula.

    SJS, yes, those numbers are all too striking and the carnage is pretty severe today. During the worst of market sell offs in the past, I remember the financial guys calling for a "capitulation." Maybe, this is it. Maybe, as Churchill said, it is the beginning of the end.

    Manipulation is really "a shift in valuation metrics" -- I love it! That's downright Orwellian. You have a future in marketing, mike! Better dust off your old copy of "Politics and the English Language."

    Sometimes we seem incapable of opening our eyes to what is happening. We worry about a weed in the garden as the house is burning down. The "real problem" here is pretty obvious: Wall Street institutional managers systematically and mutually attack the most vulnerable areas of the market, which recently happens to be the biotech sector. It is how the powerful and wealthy wipe out small investors. It's called capitalism. Of course, we have to be careful not to criticize too directly the ones who are truly responsible for such destruction, or we risk being called communists, or worse. But maybe you realize that already, and have decided you are in less danger by focusing on an irrelevant issue, than by speaking out against the "real problem."

    We are seeing a pure manipulation of the most vulnerable stocks, mostly small cap biotech stocks, as Wall Street institutional managers work in collusion to wipe out individual investors. Coal stocks are a meaningless comparison. Rather, the comparison is to corrupt control of any institution by a powerful, wealthy few. This is capitalism in action: the system you had better not criticize in this country, or you will be branded a socialist, or worse.

    Oh, and the minute those trader-wolves catch a whiff of the SEC on their trail, they will cover their tracks in unison too. But we all know what good trackers the SEC has, so the wolves probably have a little while to run yet.

    Sheep, you should really change your id to ostrich since you can't seem to get your head out of a hole in the ground. If you don't realize, especially today, that phones are ringing from one hedge fund manager to another with the injunction to stop all purchases of, and short at will, any and all biotech stocks, someone has just forgotten to give you a call or send you the memo. Look, HFT has been under attack in the media, and the HFTraders of Wall Street want to take their revenge, to flex their muscles, and to remind the investment community who's in charge. There is nothing personal here against any one company, other than as a small cap biotech it is an easy target. It's just the way Wall Street (and any other corrupt institution) works.

    I thought it was strange too, especially with only 30% of the average volume. Certainly not a rush for the exits or signal of a leak of bad news.

    Thanks, SBH, this is excellent coverage, and the market will respond to it once the hedge funds stop beating down biotech stocks in general.
