There's a very good chance such a thing is happening here. You have Kerx and his stooges on the board with the short and distort campaign yet didn't most say they aren't even short?
Then why would they be here essentially 24/7?
My advice. It's noise. You can scan their posts to see if there are any facts you think you should be aware of but mostly it's nonsense like "look at the share price" etc.
I have a small position but IMHO their claims don't pass the smell test. I'm not emotionally attached to this stock by any stretch and I think those short would ultimately like to get out at the lowest price possible. Read the positives and the negatives and make up your own mind on the risk/reward and determine how much pain you may be able to endure.
You may be right but reaffirming vastly reduced guidance which is still substantially negative year over year is not going to drive this up IMHO.
In this algo driven market stocks tend to get pushed all over the place, often driven by technicals. For whatever reason this sector and stock did not participate on worry not, the algo rules may say drive it up Monday as the market goes down.
This is just an example, I'm not saying the market is going down Monday and that XONE is going up it's just I see nonsense all the time that is often trading noise.
What will drive this up ultimately through an earnings release is execution and delivering the goods. Now this is where I may contradict myself but not really because saying and doing are two different things. They have set the bar so low that perhaps even meeting this guidance will result in a continuing reversal but who knows where the stock is by then since they won't report for a few more months. If the overall market behaves this could be back near $12 or more by then. If not?????????????????????????? I have no idea.

Definitely good news fanofstan. Getting ahead of things with a PR shortly after the quarter with some level of detail with the only slight negative being missing the lower end of shipping guidance by 1 machine but making up for it with a better mix and maintaining the $40M guidance which should mean a minimum of $15.8M of revenue.
I was thinking the same thing. He could have put Cramer on his lap and used him for his ventriloquist dummy.
Wait a second!!!?? Maybe that's what's been going on here all along. :-)
I posted and removed to fix a typo and then reposted but i don't see the post so trying again.
Those were options exercises not direct buys unless I'm missing something.
At least the IBB held just above the old low but I think this may be short lived as just after the SP made a new recent low the oil production "rumor" came out.
I'm not sure if you heard Mark Cuban's call in to CNBC saying he had taken a gold options position since the algo nonsense has him spooked since they can take down stocks regardless of how good or bad their fundamentals are (we all know that from the stocks we follow). Even though this stock is a spec, kerx and the jerx certainly know this also since that is why they are here. They know many stocks are controlled and this is certainly one of them.
I agree either that or he is an incredibly demented person or both.
HFT algo trading and those behind it use it as a license to steal.
If you watch enough stocks long enough and realize that their news flow very often has no connection to which way the algos take them, you realize what we all know. Absolute power corrupts absolutely.
Is this stuff legal? It may be based on the law but I doubt the intention by those that used the logic that HFT algos should help liquidity meant for it to totally abuse markets. Then again I can be naive so maybe they knew exactly what they were doing all along.
You can always find things to complain about and you certainly do.
I could understand getting out because we are more in a capital preservation market right now and what is not that expensive may get really cheap.
Very short term money wins less often than long term based on my experience but to each their own.
Not sure what you are talking about. The short interest went from 9.4M on 12/31/15 to 9.8M on 1/15/16 per the Nasdaq site.
I'm long a small position but bunk is bunk. Short interest had been above 10M from the end of August through the end of November.
I can't answer that but it's not like it would help the stock performance. Those indices have been whacked even worse than the overall market since peeking.
IBB is down over 4% and is with 5 points of the 52 week low which will surely be broken over time.
I'm noticing many small cap and micro caps down significantly more and not just in biotech.
An ugly start to the year which will probably get uglier over time.
Your persona is short on integrity and long on deception. Was that your 29 shares short yesterday or will we see a huge tick up from your position in a few days?
I had no issues with the call regardless of what the stock price does during a correction, potential bear.
Can you and the other A-oles knock off the bumps which are being done to further pollute the board?
Get a life clowns. Add some value.
Leave the board.
Good call on finding that old gap at least for today. this had been slightly oversold on the daily.
i appreciate your technical views.
Congrats on the buys.
First off, was there any comment about acquisition in that particular post? I was talking about valuation and that this had previously dipped below TBV. It had gotten to $5.81 while trailing TBV was roughly $6.68 the previous quarter.
Secondly, if someone where looking to take these guys out they should consider valuation metrics besides IP, addressable market and other factors.
You should know by now that the playbook here is that they come in at or just above their numbers and guide the same way.
What the market does with that is generally in question.
Deferred revenue is another metric to look at and how well they are managing costs.
It's up big after hours.
Phase III most likely will not officially launch until Q2 of 2016 so yes 2nd half 2017 for NDA submission per the company one week ago.
That is hardly a hard date but what they are targeting.
I guess it was too tempting turb since according to some these guys are playing tiddly winks so far as they can tell.
