This was an XML cleanup only. The entry prior to the change had a maximum age field that was blank, the change removed the field.
Look at the previous text version (click on updated before xxx) and you will see at the bootom of the Recruitment Information section:
minimu age: 18 years
healthy volunteers: no
And the exact same information after the change. No maximum age was previous there.
And as somebody else posted, the requirment is for recruitment. Does no effect those in the trial.
Yes wrt "nobody knows". But the March news will be one of:
. Carry on till completion (EOY or such)
Same here. I would hope they fix it before I sell (which might be years, I like the stock for income) and they would send it to the IRS.
The good news is that if something goes wrong and the tax basis never gets fixed, it is in our favor :-)
Can you point me to the sorce of that quote? I can not find it.
It might well be that the stability issue is the real driver, but I do know that reformulating to remove PG and its side effects is not uncommon.
What the OP has correctly noted is that E-Trade is misreporting the basis. For lots that are originally PCL they are reporting the new share count but the original price as the basis.
The effect is that ETrade is showing a substantial phantom loss. If this is also what they report to the IRS, makes things kind of fun.
The present share count and valuation is correct.
My understanding is that a settlement/award would be treated as a reduction in basis. If you have already sold the stock, it would be a long term cap gain (well, actually the term would be from purchase to receipt of cash, but these things aways take years).
As far as the Fusilev shortage issue, you have to be joking. Fusilov sales spiked when the generic racemic mix had supply shortages. Did anybody really believe Raj when he said they would not return to normal upon resolution of the supply issues? Never short SPPI, but I did sell out that fall for exactly this reason.
Those who continually mouth inane comments about hedge fund manipulation and naked shorting should probably stick to investing in large diversified funds.
