Great, and good for you, but I'm guessing that you are really a paid $0.10 per post bullsh*ter who is working this board to spread FUD (fear and uncertainty) upon the others here like we all saw on QCOR at $20, INCY at $15 and BLUE at $18 for example. Its that obvious.
You go ahead and buy Chipolte at $650 and Nextflix at $350 without me. I'm no fool.
Also, please tell us all why you are here every day #$%$ on this stock? Its obvious, you have an agenda. I'm buying these dips. Wink.
Sentiment: Strong Buy
My chips are on the BTX team.
Try covering 5 million shares. The current shares are very Tight and in good solid hands.
The short thesis is almost laughable.
7 Trials are underway. The pipeline is so cheap for a $3.00 stock.
All we need is 1 hit at multiple shots at the goal and then we shoot higher, and I mean Fast.
Key partnerships include; GE Health Care, The Wistar Institute, Icahn Institute at Mount Sinai, Cancer Research UK and Cancer Research Technology (CRT), the Stem Center at Palma de Mallorca in Spain, Weill Cornell, UCLA, and others. Investors should note that the Wistar Institute is the nation's first independent institution devoted to medical research and training and has evolved from its beginnings as an anatomical teaching museum to its present-day status as an international leader in basic biomedical research. Wistar's research has led to the development of many important discoveries.
Senior Execs from Questcor Pharma and Shire are also here. They obviously know more than you and I.
Several other pieces are coming together and these guys are working hard now since the $30M financing is in place as you have seen.
These few YMB posters (probably 1 guy posting with a few id's ) who keep posting FUD (fear and uncertainty) on a stock that is certainly going to rip their bosses faces off will be something to see, and its coming. we have seen that All small dips get snapped up until one day those who get left behind will chase it at $5 - $7.

BioTime, Inc. (NYSE MKT:BTX), a biotechnology company that develops and markets products in the field of regenerative medicine, today announced that Angus C. Russell, former Chief Executive Officer of Shire plc, has been appointed to BioTime's Board of Directors.

Pillar is one of Idera Pharma’s (IDRA) largest shareholders along with the Baker Bros.
One of the main goals that I believe the company is working on is reworking its capital structure.
According to the new filings that were just released, it looks like Pillar is strategically doing its part in cleaning up the capital structure which helps move the company in the right direction long term following the hiring of Vincent Milano, who by the way, has come out of retirement following the ViroPharma acquisition. Vincent is regarded as one of the Top biotech CEO’s as far as the biotech community is concerned. We are in great hands.
Further, Pillar owns common shares and Pfd Series E shares and warrants.
It looks like they are trying to move the Series E shares (that gets paid dividends –not favorable) into common shares and stay within the NASDAQ 20% rule. Yes, they have had to sell some shares because they are limited by the 20% NASDAQ rule, but as far as I can see they still remain one of the largest and committed shareholders along with the Baker Bros.
Sentiment: Strong Buy
Jim G came from BLUE.
BLUE was $18 earlier this year and it hit $70 in AH tonight.
Don't worry about where IDRA goes day to day.
Someone who doesn't follow me close enough has attacked my recent stock picks.
The most recent picks in the past few months have been:
KPTI at $25
IBB from $90 - LT hold
QCOR from the $20s
MNK from $65
TASR at $15
DATA at $60
NPSP a few times
ACAD and some others
Yes, LNG was a good stock that I had a 55,000 share position in at $3-$5 and I know when it tripled I sold some and moved into INHIBITEX at $11 and it was acquired at $26, then I was in Amylin and some others. When management does what they say the stocks perform and if not I have to make a choice just like you should do without blaming anyone but yourself.
I do have about 30 stocks that I cover and trade positions and inform investors on stocks to be on alert. That's how it works. Don't trade for people.
The most recent alerts were on IDRA at $2.60. Charts and my notes were emailed. Questions were answered. I help give direction, not trade for people. I'm a former WS executive. My followers are HNW people. Some institutions, money managers, CEOs, business owners, PhDs, professors, medical Drs and such. Generally Not criers with a few thousand bucks. This game takes a lot to cash, research, conviction and intestinal fortitude. I've been up and down and will tell you that I have been to the University of Wall Street believe me. My coaching is helpful month to month. New inexperienced people who are just starting to trade stocks don't get it. They are not a fit for me.
One of my worst performers this year has been Idera starting in the high $3's and buying on the way up. I did triple down on the fade and informed investors as well. Keeping everyone updated. Yes, this still looks great LT and its tough to inform investors when we are losing but I continued to do so. Remember that many bios got clobbered in March. Luckily QCOR and a few other stocks mentioned above carried me and many followers through with really good returns.
I hope this helps. You can reach me by em.
Im just stopping by briefly to say Thank You for the kind emails from NY, SFO, LA, FL, Boston and all the way to Portugal.
The overhang from frustration over lack of real news is behind us and I do expect more updates to follow. The company is showing real grit in expressing its desire to move this company forward. They are Topgrading the organization...Getting the right people on the bus in the right seats!
Advice: Learn who to trust and who not to listen too. Especially on these MBs. Do you remember all the new bashers who came on this board last week who were saying sell or short? Yea, a few idiots or a Team of these nickel posters come online and then Boom! Serious buying ensued, right? That's their game. Don't fall for it.
Look, this is not an easy game. I know it all to well having been through this so many times in my career on WS. Something I don't stand for, but it happens. IE. AF.
Your next temptation will be to take a few dollars off the table after being held down for soooo long. This is normal as many smaller investors will exit at break even or for a few dollars. My advice would be...Think. What if you could endure more pain by holding on a little longer into the New Year when this breaks $5 or higher?
My LT advice is to hold for the big money and not be happy with table scraps. I mean you deserve a lot more than 20%. This will be a multi bagger if you have the patience and don't get emotional on every dip.
I'll be in for a while since the science and management team is improving.

Already in motion...the Idera Pharma team is improving and now made up of former Genzyme and ViroPharma leaders.
You can investigate to find that Both of these biotech's were acquired.
Watch: Institutional ownership is rising.
A positive slow bleed up is Best.
Please stay tuned.
Be good, EXPstocktrader
AACR - IMO-2055 TLR9 agonist update
Piper Jaffray ?
IMO-8400 combo with rituximab
Other New Indications
Could this stock move like some of my earlier stocks from a few years ago like: INCY ? QCOR ?
I have No crystal ball, so we will have to see what develops into the next few weeks, months...
Ps. Watch the team of bashers appear and try to bury the good informative posts.
As a long term supporter of Idera, I see another bold move has been made which was announced today to help move this company along. My followers have been updated with more details, but wanted to share with you a few of my thoughts. Several larger firms chimed in too within minutes asking what I thought about the news. Some are very good relationships who believe in my research since I started covering the company earlier this year. I would tell you this, Geraghty is "The Man" here who left the board of BLUE to come over to Idera. There has been a great disappointment in the valuation of the stock relative to having positive developments all year long with nothing much to show besides a fade in the stock and a CEO making $900k per year. This is all about to change or there will be more changes in the team, this is a given.
Overall, the stock has failed us most of this year vs the Double experienced in BLUE, KITE, KPTI and other stocks blazing a trail in new discoveries. BLUE was a teenager earlier this year that saw its $40's. Somebody was #$%$ besides just me. Thats right. Change was inevitable and be assured that a good CEO is coming on board who also sits on the board of another BB company that I know about.
My comments to the company weeks ago which I cannot post here tells me that someone is listening. I have been involved in many biotech's over the years. In order to have a stock perform well it takes more than just good science.
Anyways, this is positive news today. I would expect more news and/or updates to follow, and wish you all the best. You should know that I am rarely on YMB but continue to keep my loyal followers updated who are a network of mostly CEOs, HNW MM Firms, Drs and some retail members who have invested millions into Idera. We don't call trades day to day like others try to do, but rather take a longer term outlook in this company.
Be good. EXPstocktrader
DB stepped up big time adding 1.288 million shares.
They are obviously...In it for the long haul like they did on ACT, MNK...and some others. Smart money contacts.
IMO-8400 Combo works. Dumpster dive on IMO-2055 for a reason, IMO-9200 partner coming, DMD, GVH, WM, DLBCL, biomarker with Abbott to ensure that the trials include the right candidates for a greater probability of success and its GSO program hasn't even started.
The memo said that the shorts will get cut down and also be on alert for all the stupid YMB posters. Most bashers will be fake. IDRA is at an "Inflection Point" and is a good hold into many catalysts well into 2015 so all you 0.15 cent scalpers should hang on and try to make some real money this time.
