If you are long, it is YOU who have been royally screwed by ATRS management ... they have literally STOLEN the investment funds of longs in their illegal pact with Deerfield. No, it can't be "proven" but it's obvious as can be what went down here.
Well, I've been agreeing with your pop theory for 2 years now. I still do. But that pop may be a month away or years away. Delays happen all the time on small pharma's and bio's. An FDA delay is all it would take to keep ATRS down or even sink lower for months or years to come. They have an overhead, a lot of it associated with paying what I think are inflated salaries to their management team, what with all the bonuses for what amounts to really horrid execution.
Well, I think you are over-analyzing. Deerfield is not just "simply holding their shares", at least not all of them, they are banking a lot of easy profits now as they have been doing since they were tipped off the dilution was coming when ATRS was a 3.0
There is NO CERTAINTY as to if or when a "pop" I coming. There never is on any stock. But there is certainty for Deerfield on banking short term profits now.
Both are in "need" of each other, both profit from the corrupt and illegal actions they have undertaken. Why do you assume the stock is "bound" to go to 3.2 or any other number? For that matter, all stocks are "bound" to go higher, i.e. they have promise to go higher, or the company would not be in business. The key is WHEN. But when you have a guaranteed short term profit, you don't have to risk or gamble on when some potential other future event might occur, you can lock in your profits now. And that doesn't mean Deerfield has to sell ALL their cheap shares, they may very well hold onto some, just that they want to bank a lot or most of it, that's what I would do too.
They bought into the public offering after being told it was coming a few weeks in advance by ATRS management so they could begin selling at 3.0 and all the way down. In return, they agreed to buy up the offering at 2.00 knowing they profit big coming and going. Once they bought the shares at 2.00, they certainly didn't want or need to hold all those shares, any sale above 2.00 is a short term profit for them, and that's what's happening. They DON'T CARE about AB rating or anything else other than locking in their guaranteed short term profit. Their profit is HUGE when you remember they were tipped off to start selling at 3.0
I don't think it's more complicated than the fact that they bought up the dilution at 2.00 and are slowly selling it off for a profit as they don't want to hold all those shares and it's a guaranteed easy short term profit for them to sell now. It was all pre-arranged with ATRS management.
Uh, yea! We'd be MUCH higher if it weren't for the dilution at the incredibly low price of 2.00
And, speaking of overhead resistance, it isn't just the 20 million placed shares that have to be re-sold once. Many of the buyers of the re-sold shares (which now includes myself it I can buy them under 2.1) will be looking to flip the shares themselves. This will weigh on the stock for a LONG time to come UNLESS there is SIGNIFICANT good news.
Oh, I forgot to thank you for your newest prediction. The fact that you state ATRS will be "much" cheaper in a couple months gives me confidence it'll be higher in a couple months. So, I might re-buy again if it goes back below 2.1
Just to pin you down, how much is "much" cheaper and how long is a "couple months"?
Gee, I can hardly write through my tears of disappointment that my post "gets no credibility" from you. And, just in case you missed it again, this comment is me being facetious again.
Exactly! Flynn is selling and Deerfield is selling to profit from all those shares they bought at 2.00, why should I buy this thing for any other reason than a short term trade? Well, even the selling wouldn't have caused me to stop being a long term holder. It was the CORRUPT IF NOT ILLEGAL actions of management in letting Deerfield in on their dilution plans, that's what caused me to lose all trust and faith in management. How anyone else could continue to hold ATRS as a long term investor with this management is beyond me. And, just the fact of the large dilution at the incredibly low price of 2.00 should tell you all you need to know about management's confidence in their near term prospects. And this follows several conference calls where they stated they didn't see a need to dilute. What liars.
You really are stupid, aren't you? Do you have any idea of what the word "facetious" means? Have you never read a facetious question before?
Hey, how much nicer can I be to you? I've already stated how valuable I find your posts to be!
In other words, the insiders themselves are not confident in the near term occurrence of all the positives you listed. Who would know better than the insiders?
With all those positives, why did they feel the need to dilute at such at such a low price of 2.00?
So, since it closed up 6 cents instead of only 3 cents, does that mean you are extremely surprised? Or, merely surprised as you stated you would be if it were only up 3 cents? Inquiring minds want to know.
Yep, your value as a contrarian indicator continues. You always make the most bearish predictions right at the short term low. That's why you're one of the few posters that I actually read. I always look to make a trading action against your predictions. Thanks again!
The last time you said it was going below $2 it immediately jumped to 2.6
I see this time you are hedging your "prediction" by placing question marks after your statement. I'd be more confident it was about to jump again if you had left the question marks off and been more definite. Your value as a contrarian indicator is in proportion to how confidentally you make your statements.
The buyer at 2.00 is not going to let it slip below that level. He also will be happy to step in and sell on any little pop to make his profit on his shares bought at 2.00
This stock is going no where, up or down, until some SIGNIFICANT good news is announced. The good news for longs is, there is really no bad news that can knock it any lower, it's not going under 2.00
You certainly "change you mind" a lot. That way, you can always point back to a comment of yours that predicts the future since your past comments will always cover all bases, whether the stock goes up or down. In other words, your comments are totally worthless.
