Well .. I certainly agree that given the possibilities here any big player should just buy 'em and bid 'em. There is some caution, however, and that is just helping to coil the spring. If and when this thing goes, single digits will be a thing of the past. We're close, it's gonna happen soon.
Very fair and valid question. Personally I believe that no body wants to do Modi the favor of making this easy. We really owe him nothing and he is profiting handsomely on his position. Paying up to take him out just doesn't seem justified. As for being wrong, I would ask you ... why hasn't the price backed off of the $9.00 level at all?? Seems to me there is a lot of underlying strength and interest at this level .. it's just not enough to make Modi's life any easier .. that's all.
Ok .. it's really not important anyway whether Modi is a genius or a moron. What is important is that Millions of shares were sold in a fairly aggressive manner at high's ( considering the market value post the last secondary) and they were sucked up with very little disruption to the PPS. This is HUGE. There are buyers, big buyers, chomping at the bit for any huge chunks of stock that shake free for whatever reason. Eventually shares will be held tightly enough so that these buyers will have to pay up to build their positions. All the stars appear to be lining up for a monster end to this year. I own enough and only buy on dips but the temptation to start taking offers is getting almost too much to resist. I'm still expecting a buyout in the 5 Billion range and wouldn't be surprised if it happened in the next 6 -8 months.
Jeez .. really? The man acquires 12 million shares under a buck. Sells a bunch at 5 and the rest at 9. If I did that you could call me a moron all day long and twice on Sunday. The real story here is the ability of buyers to completely suck up these shares. It will always take a short while to absorb the turnover but once a day or so has passed it's onward and upward. Double digits coming soon to a trading screen near you!
Alrighty then .. If Guaranteed works for you, however you want to twist it, so be it. I still love you brother. I very much believe in what we're doing here too. And, yeah, tell us more about the little green women from outer space. Sounds like a good story.
Wily .. you probably know that I'm a fan of yours. I love when you dissect the science of NVAX. Being basically a trader for 30+ years and a scientist for about none of that time, I greatly appreciate your input that way. But to use the word GUARANTEED about anything stock market related is a bit much. If you've been sipping Rez's cool aid I get it, but you should really leave that stuff alone. Stay humble brother ... we'll both get our big payday together .... I'm pretty sure, anyway.
Ok .. pretty sure that is a soft bash but in the unlikely event it's a legitimate question ... I'll bite. NVAX does not have any commercially available vaccine for avian flu yet. They are well along the path to commercialization and results thus far have been great. SO .. what if this problem ( the avian flu ) finally gets the attention of someone in need of votes, say in about 18 months? Can NVAX receive expedited approval? an EUA? A stockpile order? Perhaps all 3 and I'm sure I'm leaving out a bunch of possibilities that could double the PPS overnight. You want to be on the sidelines if/when this happens? Want to be short ? Good luck with that because once the good news starts coming ... it's game on!
