    who is selling all the stock

    I bought a 1000 shares in the 1.7's. I'm ok with my 750 something loss. I would hate to be holding a bag full of this one. Got clobbered with CLDX and don't need another face slapping.

  • Reverse, and that bodes well. Just need increased volume on upside for right shoulder and we could take off. Neckline around 18.25. The bio sector in general is not good. You've GILD and VRTX under 90! CELG close to its 52 week low. These are profitable companies. I'm surprised we don't see more takeovers right now with all these Bio's in the dumps. I'm staying long until the results released from the various studies.

    Sentiment: Hold

    AD Data?

    I think this will be the second Golden Goose for ACAD. The number of people with AD is growing dramatically. If the can keep the cost reasonable, they will make loads of money on this medication.

  • I've been looking at the chat and it's not looking good, but neither does IBB, VRTX, GILD, JUNO, etc. I hold all these as well. GILD I'm shocked considering they have a lock on HepC and the use of Truvada among homosexual community. This is a profitable company and might pick up a bit when I see this market calm down.

    The thing I find reassuring is the the volume has not been overwhelming. I don't see for example 5-10 x normal trading volume on the down days. So, can be short trading, people lightening their loads, margin calls, whatever.

    I'm long 2000 shares. Not fun to get my ribs punched, but I will wait out these results. Someone had mentioned large Feb 15 calls open interest. I saw this before too. This is interesting. Could be something, or maybe not.

    Funny I'd defend this guy, but I think his article was fair: pros and cons.

    I think if someone isn't paying attention to the general indices then you just don't get what's going on. The rich are shorting and the chumps are holding. I'm a chump holding so I'm not putting myself on pedestal. The biotech stocks I hold have taken a hit and so has tech. Safety to solid companies like FB, AMZN, etc. but at high valuations. I've been trying to sell call options to make a little income in this downturn and buying some small lots 25-50 shares of solid money making bio's like GILD and VRTX. Of course, my FB options will take my FB away end of this week. We are overdue for a recession and I don't think we ever got out of the last one. The FED did a great job of keeping interest rates low for the wealthy to borrow on the cheap, but the Middle keeps paying more out of pocket for common expenses like insurance, utilities, etc. So, what to say? Might be better to buy little lots or keep cash on sidelines till see what happens with economy and elections. Need to see what new leadership will do in Washington to see how scre#wed we are. I'm think there is a chance NWBO goes to test 1.8 ish again and might pick up a 1-3 thousand shares as a Hail Mary. I'm not excited by what I see here either. I do hold CLDX and painful to watch, but so is everything else which is why I prefer to buy the profitable bio's in small increments as I am uncertain on general market direction, but seems it's trending down. My two cents! GL.

    Sentiment: Hold

    Luk, I just have not seen it at the pharmacy. It would be nice! But, nothing. I don't hear people even talking about this drug. I do see it on some shelves on different places, but nothing of significance. I have yet to see a commercial for months. Yet, I see Marie Osmond (she's still hot!) and other celebrities touting various weight loss regimens. We have to deal in the realm of REALITY AND REASON. Nothing here exceptional. I do find the some of the collaborations interesting, but that's it.

    Stock Price reaction...

    I think if Woodford didn't buy any trading close to 52 week low's that this speaks for itself. I think LP is the best trader! She owns Cognate and hedged herself quite well with that one. Seems, she can do "something" for other companies as with Cognate from what I read on this board. At least she will have some cash flow. Good for her! I've thought about picking up 2-3 thousand shares at these low prices in case of some Hail Mary, but reading that researcher's comments tells me there is some type of flaw in the design of this study. There is no transparency from this company regarding any "changes" to satisfy the FDA. Good science, at least a good try, but the longer I follow this company, the less I like LP and her schmucks surrounding her. I think Woodford is wondering how he got suckered into purchasing so many shares himself.

    They are just as clueless as we are. I used the savings from gas to pay for increased health insurance, car insurance, house insurance, utilities and food. So much for having discretionary income. Oh yeah, continuously buy gold and silver for the farce of a financial/political system.

    I am not a multiple ID person. Sorry, just a bummed out pharmacist who made a boatload of dollars on the way up and gave up a bunch on the way down dollar cost averaging. Dust, if you are not a paid shrill, don't' waste your money on this stock. My biggest mistake was recommending this to a few people and them losing money on this company. I won't do this again.

    Surprisingly, they still talk to me.

    Again, where are the boy geniuses' that were stoking the fires with this message board. All a bunch of slithery punks as far as I'm concerned. They can't even be men enough to admit a mistake. Their wives can call me anytime when they need a real man and I don't need the blue pill. Yet! :).

  • Any longs please tell me has this company ever released any information regarding any revenue from Germany or England for treating patients? More so Germany. Any??? What are they making? It's that simple.

    If there was some type of revenue, I'd be more likely to buy into this company as I did in the past, but something is fishy here. My best guess is that NWBO has to specify which stage/subtype of GBM responds best to the vaccine and this is still cloudy. Hence, the extension of phase studies. It seems some folks have done well with this drug, but I wonder if the studies were designed carefully or maybe there just wasn't enough information because after all you don't know what results will be until you start actually treating people.

    To be fair, biotechs are getting hammered as well as general market. Still, I put a post if it hits 2.50 last week that anything lower is possible. I see 2.50 as resistance now. Support 2. For now. GL to longs here, but I wouldn't buy any until something concrete or you really want to do a Hail Mary with cash to blow.

    I think he's one of the few people here who make any sense. I have stated before I'm a pharmacist. I don't dispense Belviq. Maybe once the whole time it's been available. It was a great idea that never took hold. I put a lot of the blame on marketing..

    Where is the good Dr. from UCLA? How about Kutz? Or the techncician, S&P? Or the angry boxer who wants to fight everyone? The engineer too. Where you at? Smoking again at the drafting table?

    Nope, Hedge has told it like it is. I wouldn't hold your breath on this one. I sold most my position in the 6's. I hold 800 shares in a retirement account as a Hail Mary.

    I wouldn't buy one share of this company.

    This is from late 2009. If broad market selloff it will hit that level or close. My two cents. Tricky time to be in this market especially that yesterday former Fed official claims that sell off is imminent and those companies that have nothing will bare all when the collapse comes.

    If NWBO tests 2.5 support, but can't hold, look out.

    I sold out in the low 12's and for once, I did something right.

    You are just going to need something more concrete from LP or preferably a scientist to move this up.

  • hhabana2112 hhabana2112 Dec 28, 2015 12:12 PM Flag

    I see no indication in the chart that supports anything you say. The person that needs to say the most has nothing new to say-LP. Constant need of money. Trend line down, and lower. Nothing is good here. Science is interesting, but no news of any revenue from anywhere. I would not touch this stock-for now.

    Your analysis is spot on. Who, in the investment community, is going to give you money to spend if you just shot down your main source of funding. I wouldn't touch this stock with a ten foot pole right now. I've been in and out several times and held for several months when in at times. I just feel that there is a bit too much complexity with this Cognate creation and lack of transparency with the NWBO trials. I somehow think they are trying to determine what subsets of GBM are positively affected by Lysate and which are not. Also, what stage of the cancer is most likely to be affected. To me, this says more phase studies. Until they provide more details, then I can't see why you would mess with this stock. More time is needed for the phase studies and that means more money. I'm a big fan of Smith and his company profiles, but my hunch tells me to stay away from this one-for now.

    Sentiment: Sell

  • hhabana2112 hhabana2112 Nov 16, 2015 11:41 AM Flag

    Maybe. I think we might test lows set in October 2014 if Yellen raises rates. If that and slow Christmas, look out! Of course, the American Propaganda machine will blame the weather. Good! I for one just have one stock now and 80% in cash. Waiting for the Wall St. Christmas Sale! C'mon Yellin. You can do it baby! Raise those rates 1/4 % and show us you are not influenced by reactions in the stock market!

    He's got a lot of skin in this game and short patience with this waffling. I don't blame him. I don't see any good news with this shelf offering. You better hope there is "some" good news from this conference. Also, I think the LP should do less talking regarding scientific topics. In fact, none. How about a PhD or MD or some other researcher. I have owned this stock several times and I find a lot of complexity understanding all these various arrangements with Cognate, etc. I find it fishy no news regarding any German revenues. I might buy again if this stock tests low 4's. I would prefer mid 3's on a real market sell off. C'mon you tramp Yellin, lets raise those rates!!!

    Sentiment: Hold

    Because there is not an infinite supply of money. Very good article, I think on Drudge, regarding the cost of genetic therapies and how are countries going to pay for these. I say extend the patents, but fix the prices. I think all prices should be set by our government and I work in the pharmaceutical industry. Costs cannot go up infinte forever. I'm looking forward to our country and many other Western countries dealing with deflation which will really upset the Central Bankers, but be good for you and I. F-them!

    Look horrible. I somehow don't see this great news poking its head thru the chart. Everything is on downtrend. I keep debating to pick some below 5 and sell the 5 calls. Any ideas on earnings? I think the next test will be in the 3.9 to 4 range. If it busts that then low 3's. This is possible if Yellen raises rates soon. Whole market can take a nice dump and cherry pick then.
