Let's think about this.... In economic turmoil and uncertainty, would you rather be in a biotech that has no immediate expectations of earnings, or in some multi national mfg or producer of goods and services that relies in part on the strength of Europe for their earnings and projected growth?
Actually better off in a good bio whose earnings are a few years out and whose demand is based on patient and hospital needs, rather than consumers consumption.... You can put off buying a new car, but you can't put off stopping a major infection that can kill you.....
CEMP marketing and PR has become "lazy and arrogant....indifferent"?
Maybe they know what the end game really is, and they could care less about interim stock moves or if investors get in or not. DRTX...TSRX same deal. Stocks initially ran on some good Phase II results, then moved sideways for a long time during Phase III trials.
The end game here is a buyout IMHO. Problem at this point is valuation. If SOLI gets approvals for a lot of other indications down the road the value could be 75%-100% higher than it is today. So management has no real need to pump or promote the stock. Can use the funds better for development of product and general corporate purposes.
We haven't even touched European approvals and markets yet. Do we go out and try to get a European marketing partner now or simply sell to a multi national and not bother? We are working on approvals and trials on so many fronts now at the same time it's like fighting WWII all by yourself...lol! So no real time or funds really to devote to major stock PR campaigns, and probably no real reason to do so frankly.
Yes...It can be frustrating to shareholders, no doubt about that. But just remember, it's patience then patients, all all will be fine... In fact, more than fine IMHO..
AK....The last couple of weeks in the bios would lead me to be the last person to call anyone an idiot right now except possibly myself for not taking some really big profits off the table...And watching ZSPH go from 50 to 58 in a week or so while RLYP went straight down didn't help!! Oh well...Enjoy the long holiday weekend and we'll regroup for battle next Monday!!
Not only do greecians catch gonorrhea, Wikipedia says it's thier third largest export next to Pita bread and olives!
AK....Very ugly out there today....RLYP just hit it's lows from May today. CEMP getting murdered too.
ZSPH....Starting to look very interesting and in the 40's I'll be back in that name for sure.....
RUT rebalancing.... the end of the quarter....profit taking...China 8% fall last night,,,all contributing to an
awful day in bio land.
If JUNO continues down I'll probably start a position in that name too if I have any $ left!
Enjoy the weekend. My birthday tomorrow! LOL!
PS...check out the IPO MCRB today...lol....Priced at $18....Opened at $28... Now $44....
Missed that one...Figures!
1110559....A member since today and your first ever post just happens to to be here and addressed to another new handle and poster, Baimum 23? Gosh...Could you two be one and the same? LOL....
And you're wasting your time trying to pump the stock here. Only a few active posters....Myself and Akanz primarily, and AK actually owns ZSPH rather than RLYP... As for AK and me?. We've both probably forgotten more about this company and hyperkalemia issues in general then you probably know, so don't bother trying to stir the pot here. If you're long simply hold the stock and you'll be amply rewarded. Bah bye....
Boy do they play this one....If I'm correct support is $36.50 and they bring it down to that level....lol....
Sentiment: Strong Buy
Silver... I own it fairly large now at a $6.73 average so still a tad under water.
Really think that management screwed up in the enrollment process but hopefully they will straighten
that issue out and move forward. Aside from TTPH I cannot find any other gram negative antibiotic companies that are public other than AKAO, The gap in valuations between those two are huge but of course TTPH is much...much....farther ahead. AKAO is an interesting spec with with some problems so we shall see....
Good job AK! I made 7 points on ZSPH so we both did well with each other's recommendations. I think CEMP goes a lot higher so I'm holding my entire position. But you know me I'm never adverse to profit-taking either. Re-RLYP.... I think history shows on those issues that the FDA will approve then require the company to provide follow-up studies on certain indications that they may have some questions on. At that time they can either add or revise label restrictions as they see fit. I think were both sitting on winners here.
Full report on Twitter at "dougheuring" citing the HiddenGemTrader...CEMP more.... About half way down the page....
Sentiment: Strong Buy
AK....So you fully understand...Patiromer is NON ABSORBABLE. So the K that is converted to CA is taken directly out of your system via the colon.....
AK... You have an apparent gap of information and "mis information" in your analysis once again...
Yes...the calcium in Patiromer is approx 4gms versus the 2gms max recommended for patients with CKD.
So you're half right. But the absorption rate should be lower than the 2gms recommended as preliminary
data that supported their NDA showed. They are currently running trials on that issue which could
be released before, or after, the PDUFA date. The distinction is that Patiromer is absorbed in the
colon, which reduces the actual absorbtion rate by significant amounts. Read up on it. Knowledge
is a wonderful thing....
The FDA has so much concern about approving Patiromer for chronic use that they didn't even bother to schedule a panel meeting prior to the PDUFA date? Huh??
Calcium intake for CKD patients? OK... Take your one daily dose of Patiromer and treat your hyperkalemia problem plus meet your recommended daily dose for calcium. Put a label on the box discussing that issue.
Skip the milk, ice cream, and all other stuff with high calcium content and the patients might even lose some weight and cure their "K" problems to boot! LOL...Come on man you can do better than this! LOL...
For those here who were in both TSRX and DRTX they will remember well that neither stock shot up straight line... Those early in both saw the stocks stagnate at single digit levels for quite some time...Then they gradually moved up into low double digits on good trial news...then with TSRX, we woke up one morning and the stock was being taken over in the $16's... DRTX had a similar story and moved from single digits to around $17 over time...then it actually corrected sharply down to the $12-$13 level for no reason, and shortly thereafter we all woke up one morning to see a $23 plus buyout.
Bottom line....Just stay with it. Add on weakness. You'll be rewarded down the line bigtime... IMHO!!
I usually go 85% fundamentals, and 15% on technicals.... Technicals help me on initial buy levels. I don't pay attention to them on sell levels as I've been burned too many times doing that. Pay attention on breakouts on the charts if they are clear and on volume. Do not use stop losses as normally all I do is make the dealers and shorts money.
CEMP is heavily followed by the tech gurus. The chart was looking very positive a few weeks back heading towards the 37 area to possibly again challenge 40 plus. Traders are playing this pretty well. Buying on market corrections and selling a few points higher. Nothing much to hurt shorts in the near term either, news wise, so that trade is also probably also in play on any meaningful rallies.
As for the stock...Just consolidating in a narrow trading range for many weeks now. Will either break out to the upside eventually or break down. I have alot of dough on the line saying the former. Not worried one iota.
Sentiment: Strong Buy
pharma whatever.. I mean AK...lol...
So "pharma", you've had that handle since May 15, 2015, and "you" just happen to start posting on this Board even though you're a big ZSPH bull? Man, you surely sound like a dumb downed AK to me. By the way, your English sucks...."Recent hires on the commercial leadership team for RLYP is (sic) weak"...?
AK...I mean pharma....You need to take "AK" back to your lil corner of the world and call it a day.
I own RLYP from the 18's pal, and large, so kinda happy thank you. I traded ZSPH and made good money
on it in a very short time and posted my buys and sells of it in real time for all to see, win or lose.
Unless you have some other bio ideas or have the guts to disclose your positions and post your
buys and sells, I have no use for your worthless bravado.
Never intended to imply the sales by insiders in ZSPH were not the same as the sales by insiders of our RlYP. Both were done to take profits after extraordinary gains by very large holders. I was just throwing back to AK his negative posts when some of our insiders sold their stock. I just found it ironic when ALTA partners started selling hundred s of thousand of shares in ZSPH that all of a sudden ithat was done for legitimate purposes and was not a negative. Lol! Go back and read some of AK's posts on this topic on the RLYP Board and I think you'll be amused as I was.
