Got my wings clipped pretty good yesterday AK.....Six figures down but could have been alot worse....
ZSPH acting good today but RLYP weak. Don't like that one! I want both to go up equally...
CEMP still weak. Ditto VTL.....XBIT I loaded the boat just under $20 and am marginally profitable as I write.
That one is a trader for me....Made $ on it once and went back to the well in the selloff. A recent IPO....
A good read if you are truly interested in getting the facts regarding SCI and clinical trials rather than
simply spouting off nonsense. http://www.christopherreeve.org/atf/cf/%7B219882e9-dfff-4cc0-95ee-3a62423c40ec%7D/ICCP_CLINICAL_TRIALS.PDF
Nipal....Can't believe you suckered in so many people with that "not native English speaker" rountine.
Your sentence structure....spelling and grammer were perfect, except for a few intentional miss placed words.
Not a "native" English speaker? Your choice of the word "native" in contex with your heading is a very sophisticated choice of words for someone who doesn't speak English too well...Well done my man!
Come on gang...Gullible posted an objective response and observation. He's long. His sentiment is a strong buy. Thumbs down? Why? Let's not end up like all the other Boards on Yahoo when anyone who is not an outright screaming bull 24/7 gets shouted down. Quite a few of the recent bio presentations at conferences were re-hash's of already released data. Our day will come and it will be sooner rather than later. Long year is ahead of us and an exciting one to boot!
Sentiment: Strong Buy
You know general viper...Rather than asking a typical stupid #$%$ question like you just did why not ask the question why you were apparently too stupid sitting on your fanny and sipping your whiskey not to sell your shares at $19.50 and then buy them back at $11.80 today?....All in about a week. My objective is not to make friends here nor banter around here with the guys on a message board. Just trying to read any posters with something factual and perhaps even new to say about about the company.... No luck so far.....Will go back to checking this Board a couple of times a day. Only responded this afternoon cause I saw my name included in a "bashers" list. GL General!!
Mike talks a good game but citing from a website doesn't mean he's eating anyones lunch.
My kids could do that when they were 9. Anyone who argues that stem cells could be included on the scaffold device without any additonal clinical trials required by the FDA (over simply the device itself) because they are known naturally occurring organisms,
doesn't know his "a" from a hole in the ground. I've dealt with the FDA on medical device
companies that went public, and are still public and he's full of sheet...
What is even more disarming is that it took them all those years to develop sugar water when they could have simply gone into the coffee room, got some sugar out of the cabinet, put a tablespoon in a glass of water,
and saved themselves and shareholders alot of time, money, and anguish...LOL!
I would say NO based on past performance but after dodging CLDN by a nano lucky charm,
I'm not so confident as I once was....LOL! I've always believed that good news, and bad news, leaks to someone (never to me unfortunately), but given the selloff today in biotechs it would be impossible to make any correlation. Let's hope past form continues and we get a good report tomorrow!
If seeking facts, rather than hoopla, from longs hoping for a winning lottery ticket based on
some very unfortuante accidents to two beautiful young people, makes me a "basher", so be it.
The truth is that surrounding the wagons with those who simply agree with whatever the wagon master Mike has to say is not going to do you any good. I owned this stock pretty darn large before most of you ever heard of it, and sold it north of $12 for a very nice profit. Before then no one really posted nor bothered with "basher lists" because there was really not much interest in the company. But now, it's apparently the holy grail in treating SCI. Maybe it will be someday...let's hope so...But that conclusion is still a long ways off.
What has changed recently? Really not that much. The same two (2) initial patients. The same two initial positive early results from both. The same no comment or press releases from the company. No patient 3 to date, let alone patients 3-5. Hiring a big name PR for what reason? Will results not take this one to the promised land alone or do you really need a major PR firm to help do it? A question...not a criticism.
Mike is so friggin dead wrong on the issue of intergrating stem cells with the scaffold device it's insane.
First of all, simply introducing stem cells into the spine has virtually no chance of working whatsoever. Whether it is via the scaffold or otherwise. If it were that simple, stem cells would have been introudced in SCI and ALS patients a long time ago. Secondly, unless there is an objective means of measuring SCI improvement, which is distinct and different from improvement obtained via natural healing, time, and aggressive rehabilation, then the fact a patient has shown verying degrees of improvement means nothing as far as the scaffold is concerned. Only clinical trials can do this. Baby steps first. You all need to calm down.
With you today AK...Added to XBIT mid 19's....Got some buys in for TTPH....Watching others for sure....
The Board guru not posting today to help support the stock?
What are the rest of you mindless wonders going to do without your fearless leader?
You folks calling this company a "bio" now? LOL!
Yah...Avoid companies with a single drug...Great advice. PCYC longs just got $257 a share for their single drug company form ABBV....
If I didn't know better AK I'd would think you were wishing me some ill will on me today....LOL...
Having a terrible day obviously but been buying some things on the cheap so we'll see....
Good stuff on sale today frankly. Let the crowd panic out of everything and I'l be there buying
some of the stuff that I like....
James....Didn't want to slur any current posters who are regular and highly ethical and competent contributors. But CEMP hit the bigtime this year as one of the best performing mo mo type bio/medical stocks of the last year. Lots of bio newsletters picked it up fairly late and started touting it to their subscribers in the 30's. This explains in part the large swings in short term trading that we historical have been used to. We simply have more trading type mentalities here and short sellers as well. Sign of the times really. Nothing sinister. Just a fact. Happened with TSRX and DRTX as well. You can't have the rapid appreciation we have had by not attracting the traders to boot. Best thing with a stock like this is to own it and forget it and not pay attention to the daily swings. Hard to do though huh?
I'm giving you thumbs up gulllibleguy...One of the few posters here other than the old core that post objective facts and opinions now, rather than pie in the sky wantabe buyouts at $200....Most message boards on Yahoo are like this now unfortunately as people seem to be desperate in these economic times to get bailed out of their personal economic situations. Read the same stuff on just about every Board. Anything even remotely seen as not ultra bullish you get pounced on. That's why I think the more objective and talented folks are moving to Twitter, or Stock Twits, Investors Ihub...etc.
Yes....CLDN....Yes....dodged a bullet and almost embarrassingly made almost a six figure profit on buying the stock, and writing the covered calls, then closing out both positions early last week. Need to thank the company for giving that advance CC to shareholders which was about as nervous and needless as anything I'd ever heard other than to possibly signal their pals to ditch the stock (that was a joke not a belief LOL)... And though I know they feel very sorry that their drug didn't work, I'm sure they're not going to give back the profits the insiders made by selling over 300k shares of stock within the last few weeks...lol...
In any event...moving on.... QURE is the only one I'm interested in possibly re-buying...Sold my teens preiced position at $33.50 on the day of the BMY news so wouldn't mind owning it again at the right price. Right price is the salient question though. No interest in BLUE...up 275% already so it would really have to fall to get me interested; ONCE...ditto...never really liked that one all that much frankly when it IPO'd recently...
Wouldn't mind adding to the XBIT position I started on the second go around on Friday.
We'll see....For now just feeling very fortunate....
Got to hand it to "real bio trader"...He called it early and for scientific reasons to boot...Not just short garbage illiterate stuff. Gave everyone the proper rationales to do more DD on it...He was dead right. Made me do further research and got me thinking, but the CC was the clincher....Sold the stock and covered the options the next day and actually made good money on this mess...Sorry for all the longs who road this to the very end, but it was a good story....with big names backing them....and some well known firms to boot. In bio
you win some and lose some...Events like this just bring you back to reality.
No balls no glory AK.... I buy very large positions in stocks I believe in regardless of price or hype by anyone.
QURE....Already made a ton on it...Teens to 33's in a very short time thanks to the BMY deal....Then got out cause I felt that would be the real positive news for a time, and thankfully I was right thus far. QURE is the real deal though AK. If it was in the USA it would be double the price. Read up on it my man. $140 stocks are lower risk (BLUE) but there is already huge success built into the price. And a failed anything? Whamo....
AKAO is simply a crap shoot.
TGTX...I have a very postitive feeling on that one but could be wrong.
TTPH.... In no rush to pay up frankly.
Obviously a lage position in TGTX from low 15's.... I feel a homerun coming there frankly...
