Spawn of INO. Canadian citizen is CEO and the most transparency in the stock trading for right now happens on the Canadian exchange. Registering in the U.S. as a Corporation only makes sense because that's where all the money comes from that makes drug development worthwhile. Try to make a living selling into the Canadian market?
Those who brag about it don't do it. I was trying to find your facebook or twitter ID, but no one on Earth has the name dwkrl. Is that your first or last name?
KD, The rich get rich in this world through stock, not salary. After reading this guys resume', I don't care what kind of farm they gave him, he is worth every nickel and to see a guy come on board at exactly this moment, is the biggest tell so far that ONCS is on to something.
Yes, they probably gave him stock and probably more based on performance which I prefer because he has a larger interest in the share price than even the loudest on this MB.
I'm also sure that Pierce has a lot of Merck stock, but no where near what he stands to make as an insider in ONCS which for whatever reason, he's taken the risk of his life.
Yes! I do want to bet. How much, and could we get an honest broker to collect the money? I prefer it not be Sam because he is not particularly fond of me, but just like fungus, I am growing on him.
That's the way these small cap developmental biotechs work. That is unless there has been out and out fraud. Nobody is claiming that. Bought at a buck even and am still pinching myself because I put in a market order on a falling knife.
Tag, One of these days I will tell you exactly why I am so heavily invested in ONCS. I have told you it is different than any other poster on this board, and when I take liberties questioning things, that's what I do. I've been burned too often by monotonous hype. I like to keep things fresh even though people think that my ideas are stale.
I do get a kick out of inciting the board though. As far as ONCS, it will take care of itself.
Why did this guy leave a cushy, influential Merck job to agree to be CMO for a small Canadian biotech?
I do try to keep my investing simple and am more interested in what motivates qualified individuals a whole lot more than what's in the next PR. People like Pierce are as serious a person as you can find. There is no way a person such as this does this type of job move on a whim.
With everything presumably happening fairly soon for ONCS, we can all agree that if ONCS poops the bed in any way , that's a setback that could destroy ONCS, so why did this guy come on board so close to all these catalysts with a potential "do or die" scenario? I would contend that Pierce, who is as seasoned a man as you can find in satisfying the FDA sees something in ONCS that will satisfy them.
One thing I know about scientists is that they are for the most part, born skeptics. I promise you that he looked at ONCS every which way to Sunday and after his review he's now employed by ONCS.
What Pierce has done for ONCS shareholders is more DD than they could have amassed in a thousand years.
For those who see fit to give me a thumbs down for this post, please expose yourself and explain why?
Bill, take a look at ONCS, It's flying under the radar and they have a bunch of top line data to announce pretty soon as well as what I predict will be orphan drug status for a mostly fatal under served disease called Mercel cell carcinoma. This could be multi bag before you know it. wouldn't spend too much time on their MB because these are the crazy ones like I referred to earlier
maui, please explain to all on this MB your justification for having orgasms over DSCO last year? Please stay away from ONCS lest (I learned that word from Samyo) you jinx our good fortune.
This whole string of posts proves now beyond a shadow of a doubt that you are truly one of the most uninformed members of this MB. Please don't now try to tell everybody here that your mastery of satire went over our heads.
I have tried to have this conversation with you before that you really can't short ONCS other than what is called "against the box"
That is where those warrants attached to that unit offering a couple months back have come into play.
Please provide a link to nasdaq, not an interactive chart that shows the short interest in ONCS? One doesn't exist and for you to carry on this long string of dialogue about people actually shorting shares of ONCS that they don't own, is the height of stupidity. (you've made this assertion about short shares before so it appears to be an ingrained thing and not something that you were kidding around with)
I hope your fans take whatever advice you regurgitate in the future with a pillar of salt.
Considering that the stock has doubled in the past month, that usually draws out the crazies. I'd love to think that we can continue to talk about making money and not hit the ignore button once the drive-by idiots arrive.
Getting back to ALQA,as quickly as things have been moving to get to here, this will accelerate once the CELG reformulations are complete. They predict that will happen some time in the first quarter and this I believe is the most important thing on ALQA's "to do" list.
Cow, if you read this call me when you're up.
Aside from the obvious play on words one can have with your name, I seem to remember you as a hyper of DSCO. Please do everyone on this board a favor, cool it. DSCO was a joke and I remember calling you out on it because the management seemed to be a nepotism factory. History was not kind to your predictions so please spare those of us on this board and sit back and appreciate the fact that you stumbled across something as good as ONCS, because your history with DSCO is not what I would call a resume' enhancer.
Kenny, what's the deal? I don't own any right now but to see it trading where it was trading at a year ago and the short position that's there, it's looking attractive. Who knows? Opinion?
