    Agree!

    Sentiment: Strong Buy

  • Good morning Eduardo. Thanks for the message and understanding the difficulty of responding in depth.

    I am doing fine. I agree with you that the current sentiment in biotech is frustrating. I do anticipate that will change for the positive for both us and biotech as a whole in the future as these things always go in cycles, however predicting the exact timing of the turn-around is challenging right now.

    As far as progress at Idera, you are correct in that things are going according to the plans. The IMO-2125 study at MD Anderson is moving along right on schedule and we are very much on track to present the initial data from the early cohorts of this study in the fall at one of the immuno-oncology conferences. Once we have an abstract accepted and are in position to do so, we’ll be more clear about which meeting. We are enrolling the 8400 studies in WM/DLBCL and DM and expect data updates on all of those in 2017, so next year should be a year packed with a good amount of data and inflection points as well. Finally, we are making good progress with 3GA both internally and with our GSK collaboration. I anticipate we may be presenting some pre-clinical data updates in the later part of these year from this program, and our intense focus is on making a final selection of our first disease for trials, submitting an IND and getting 3GA into human development for proof of concept, which would validate the whole platform.

    So despite the stock price and the significant pressure that is related to the biotech environment, our team has come together very well, our programs are all moving forward in a manner that is reflective of the timing we anticipated, so overall the internal sentiment within the company is very positive and we are all excited about the opportunities for success for Idera.

    Bob

    I know many of you know this already and you bashers will point out whom may have sold positions, but that does not matter to me, what does matter is the fact that these institutions do not buy with the idea they are planning on losing money. So here you go folks:

    Jennison Associates increased its stake in Idera Pharmaceuticals by 0.6% in the third quarter. Jennison Associates now owns 2,170,164 shares of the company’s stock valued at $7,270,000 after buying an additional 12,823 shares in the last quarter. JPMorgan Chase & Co. increased its position in Idera Pharmaceuticals by 5.9% in the first quarter. JPMorgan Chase & Co. now owns 3,349,700 shares of the company’s stock valued at $6,632,000 after buying an additional 187,625 shares in the last quarter. Stifel Financial Corp purchased a new position in Idera Pharmaceuticals during the fourth quarter valued at $6,980,000. D. E. Shaw & Co. Inc. increased its position in Idera Pharmaceuticals by 1,956.9% in the fourth quarter. D. E. Shaw & Co. Inc. now owns 426,390 shares of the company’s stock valued at $1,318,000 after buying an additional 405,660 shares in the last quarter. Finally, Driehaus Capital Management LLC purchased a new position in Idera Pharmaceuticals during the fourth quarter valued at $2,169,000.

    I checked the SP before I went to work and it was down a couple cents to 1.42, 1/2 hour later I get to work and turn on my watch list and we are up .16 to 1.60, on very low volume of 116K shares traded. A nice surprise. Hopefully many more of these to come. Have a great weekend all, happy Fathers day to all of you. Well...maybe not all of you! Those on the bad list....you know who you are, don't you?

    IMO-2125 and CPI combo science question

    The biggest factor is always the fact that going it alone is always hard in the pharma industry. You need the backing in a big way from a major player, a big pharma company. Physicians tend to be like the rest of the consumer world, they would rather have a known national brand drug, than a drug from an unknown company. At least in a combo, they get the well known drug to work with. I think they feel more at ease when a Merck is involved or someone equal to them or so. This is from my personal experience talking to doctors I called on and the lunches and dinners I had with them and their staffs. I still pray for a buyout of IDRA of $20+ in 2 years or so, hopefully less. We have some work to do to get to just there.

    First of all let me set you straight. I am neither a Liberal nor a Conservative, both of those by single definition would make one a very shallow person. I would be embarrassed to be pigeon holed as only one or the other. If you are simply voting your party line, I find that ignorant because both parties are not correct in many of their stances on issues. Our political system is now flawed and that is why we have the choices we currently do have, I am talking Trump and Clinton, two very flawed candidates, the worst choices in my life time. And please do not worry about my money, I will do that, you have no idea what I have or don't have. Yes you are right political influences in to investments do matter, but those are not the discussions that have been taking place here, they are childish barbs being thrown at one candidate or the other. That is the pathetic part, so don't put words in my mouth. I have always enjoyed your posts and angles on things, but frankly I am disappointed in you for attacking me personally. Good luck in your future investments.

    Love the baseball analogies. Combination therapies will be a huge key here. My hope is still that we get bought for $20 or more in the next 2 years. Possible? Probable? Who knows.

    IDRA board has left the building

    Our share price is depressing a bit, but knowing what we own is important. I will continue to be patient here. The elections certainly have been and will continue to be a weird phenomenon that will be hard to repeat. Sadly, our country will be very divided again, no matter the outcome of this election. The VP choices will be interesting too.

    No strategy involved, just don't appreciate it on this board, I come here to see what folks are thinking about IDRA, good or bad, except mindless bashing of course. My post is hardly political, my post is about not needing anyone's political opinions on this board.

    I get it man, this is a highly emotional election coming up and peoples hair on the back of their necks are standing straight up, but I get enough of this #$%$ on CNN, FOX and MSNBC, I don't need it here too. Either way our country will remain strong, it is the people that make us strong, not our President. Although I wish our President was not named Trump or Clinton. Our choices are horrible. Sigh! We will all be fine though, either way.

    No doubt, most of the posters right now are garbage in, garbage out. I hardly read any posts now, barely check the board anymore, but keep up on developments at IDRA. IDRA still looks like they have many things lining up, very encouraging. Everything except the share price.

    Holy cow. What have we done to this board. I don't care how any of you vote or what you stand for. Go argue politics on a political message board. We are all different and vote differently, that is democracy. Imposing your will or trying to change the minds of others to vote like you because of your beliefs is pathetic. Vote for Trump. Vote for Hillary. Abstain. Vote a third party candidate, I don't care what you do. For me , my biggest fear was that it would come down to a Trump and Hillary final, but here we are. The one that is hated the least will be President. Too bad for our country. Let's leave politics out of this board, I realize that is hard right now with these two polarizing candidates, but let's get back to talking about IDRA and how well we eventually are going to do here once everything comes to fruition. Now that is something I can get behind. I am still here with all my shares and I may buy more soon.

    Hey, big Giants fan here, I have been since Willie Mays days! What a great last 6 years have been. We are good if we get in playoffs, but the back of the rotation needs to improve for the Giants to get there, Peavy and Cain have been brutal, hopefully their last couple of starts each is the beginning of them getting straightened out. Go Giants indeed! And go IDRA too!

    And for no reason at all

    Agreed. I believe we will be range bound between $1.25 and $2.00 for a few months, unless we get some sort of partnership or study update that somehow catapults us beyond $2, but right now the BIOTECH sector, short of a buyout for a small company like IDRA is pretty much dead money. That does not mean I am selling by any means and if I could I would buy more here. But it means that I do not see it moving beyond that range by much, who knows though, right? We will just have to be a lot more patient than I anticipated 2 years ago when I started buying in to IDRA, I thought $20 by the end of this year was attainable. Now I will be happy with $4. And maybe $10 by end of 2017 and $20 in 2018. Not predictions mind you, just possible outcomes. I am still wanting a buyout someday, not going for it on our own, that is a much longer and harder road, let big pharma take it home.

    This company was just bought by Abvie (ms?), for basically $10 Billion and they are a startup cancer drug company. They have been working on their drug for 8 years, but show a lot of promise in stopping cancer before it starts at the Stem Cell level (short explanation). I thought that was interesting. I still hope for an IDRA buyout in our future. $20 per share would make me happy still. I know some of you will say I am selling IDRA short, I just don't want to be greedy.

    Funny you mention that. I was explaining this to my mother yesterday over lunch. Billions of dollars will be spent by pharmaceutical companies over the next few years, companies like IDRA will be the ones that will bring the greatest gains. Nothing is 100%, but I like our chances with IDRA, Milano and the Baker Brothers and for that matter Bob Doody, I like how they work and I am confident that they know what they have. We small fry need to just be patient.

    Kind of silly to leave now, don't you think? I suppose everyone believes that their investments will climb through the roof the minute they put down their money to buy shares. Unfortunately, it does not work that way most often. Sadly, we are in the "we bought too early" club on IDRA. I still believe we are going way higher, someday, but for now we just have to wait, unless you park your losses somewhere else and make money, but there is no guarantee there either. I feel like today it hit a bottom at $1.19 or whatever it was, it did do a nice rally at the end of the day to finish green. I am still hanging on to my shares and will wait for that pay day, I know it is coming, just don't know when!
