    I'm happy for the ISIS holders as the stock reverses up from the flush earlier this year.

    I investigated ISIS at $2 and visited the CEO Stan in Carlsbad, CA years ago and now its $40+. Its a multi bagger if you had the foresight and patience to ride it out. It's Gen 2 antisense works and was developed by Idera Pharma FWIW. Idera had the IP and ISIS had the strong drug development team. It took years to reach its peak. Not an overnight success by any means. Foundations take time to build, then develop. Partnerships drive stock prices too. Congrats.

    Currently, IDRA is developing Gen 3 IP. This time the New COB Jim G (who came from Genzyme, an ISIS partner) and also from the BLUE BOD joined Idera where hey are hiring new management and drug development team (also from Genzyme). The company has refocused it's efforts to be a key player in RNA therapy in the future. They also have the billion dollar Baker Bros Advisors on board as one of the two main stockholders owning over 30%+ of the stock (wts included) and they also hold two board seats. The BBs are here for the duration, not a trade. This will take time to also become a multi bagger. Buy and hold only.

    Idera stock has been flushed and we are grinding the bottom. Its cheap. No one expected it to be pushed down by the shorts. I went through this with QCOR at $20 and MNK at $70.

    The keys to IDRA will be its WM and DLBCL trials. There are some other trials too, but those two are why I'm here, on the ground floor. Shorts have compressed the shares and they will need to cover eventually. If we receive any spark from any of the leading RNA company like ALNY, we will go up with them.

    I'm just waiting. Be patient and this will pay off big. Not a scalp trade.


    Sentiment: Strong Buy

    I'm getting a lot of emails from investors and followers.

    First, ISIS was a buy at $28-$30 as the boards were saying it was tanking. IDRA was an opportunity too in the low $2.40s. The BBs are board have purchased many shares at higher prices. A good sign.

    Be aware that there are limitations to ISIS as discovered by Dr. A and his research team so they sold the Gen2 antisense to them. Also, IDRA did not have the team to develop the drugs like they do today (from key Genzyme drug developers who have signed on to Idera) so with Idera's Gen3 they are keeping the IP in house until we are informed otherwise. IMO-9200 may be partnered. Cash is not an issue.

    This difference is that ISIS has strong partners and news which has gotten the attn of investors. We are still on the ground floor waiting for the wave to take us where we as investors want to be.

    I suspect that when we get news on positive developments Idera will wake up too, like a sleeping giant.

    I'm here because of the science and the newly developing team. Averaged down and holding strong.

    The issue we have experienced is the shorts, which was unexpected. I went through this with QCOR and MNK and some others.

    My last comment is that the stock is grinding the bottom here. Once we get sell side support and continued buying from large groups of institutions we should lift. Scalpers will take their $.20 cents a and they we get launched higher as the float gets eaten up. Go see what happened with ACAD and INCY, other stocks that I follow.

    You can review my coffee machine comparison and other articles for more in depth Idera DD. Thank You.

    Be good,

    Nice going if you made out on QCOR through all the "noise" and FUD from the shorts.

    Hold the IDERA.

    See my new article on MNK and get in if you are not in already. MNK should move 40% in due time. Look for a reversal up thru $100. A solid pick at these levels.

    Be good,


    Sentiment: Strong Buy
