As you rejoice with the short count rising to 27 million you seem to have lost track of the fact eve with all the shorts doing their best to push the stock down it has traded between $9.05 and $10.91 the last month, not a particularly large range. Shorts have made little headway even with the lack of news having dissapointed shareholders. Now the stock has reversed technically. With all of that short interest it is clear that any positive news will push the stock substantially higher. The easy short money was made at $14, but it is fairly evident things are now moving in the other direction. Your fear mongering regarding the XON dividend is misplaced. Do you think Kirk or Bill Miller or Fidelity are going to be unloading Ziop shares. Not going to happen. If your short is reliant on the dividend you will be dissapointed. Good job in making some money on your puts, but you may want to protect some of those profits.
Perhaps you should heed the advice of Lincoln, to wit:
It is better to keep your mouth closed and let others think you are a fool
than to open your mouth and leave no doubt.
Its called getting the best price for your company. Do you think it is a coincidence the report came out after solid earnings and raised guidance? Who do you think let it out. Let the bidding begin.
Are you really that stupid or just getting nervous with that short position.
What is the basis for your contention distributing the shares will not make it easier for a third party to acquire ZIOP. I don't think there is any doubt it makes it more attractive.
Looks like most with the exception of Kite and Juno are doing ok. Even ZIOP with the recent beating appears to have bottomed. Not sure what you are looking at.
Are you kidding? The fact it is hitting a new 52 week low is a reason to jump in? Who comes up with this stuff.
Do you just recycle that post every week. There is no reason to believe next week is going to be different than this week or last week or the week before that. What nonsense.
The guy is a light weight to the core. "Over-inflated", does that mean more inflated than inflated. Amazing a guy with a political science degree fancies himself as a business and biotech guru. His record speaks for itself.
Look who appeared. Stock ran up to $11 he went into hiding. Stock comes down and he pops up to argue the sky is falling. Cant wait for the next pop in the stock so the board will be spared the drivel.
Nice fabrication. Last suitor? This was never all about Microsoft. Talk of sale started well before someone thrww MSFT out there.
