Apparently you have not learned from the history of STEM stock price versus dilution announcement. Please Note that I am a long time bagholder of STEM and really wish it would take off. But for at least the last several years when the stock price had significant increases with no or little news a dilution announcement followed within a matter of a few weeks. So we will see what the story is this time. Again, I really hope that I am wrong but history over the last several years indicates I will most likely be correct.
show that these sort of stock price increases without news are followed by the company diluting the shares. Those that do not know their history or doomed to repeat it. Watch what happens within the next few weeks and learn.
Rafun, unfortunately Amarin's primary problem is the corruption of the US federal government, as exercised through the FDA and ObamaCare. I hate politics with all my heart and avoided thinking much about it until 9/11/2001, at which point I started learning more about it. The more one learns the worse it gets. The Democrat Party of today is a Socialist/Marxist Party and the Republican Party of today is kind of like the old Democrat Party. John F. Kennedy, if he were alive today, would be a Republican. Me, being a true fiscal conservative and a person who thinks the federal government should not be involved at all with our social choices, do not like either the Republican or Democrat Party, and am more of a Libertarian. Anyway, whether we like it or not, politics affect almost everything we do these days.
Just like my posts were deleted last night by iHUB, I expect the post below to be deleted as well, since the iHUB board posts are censored by Democrat monitors.
LOL! So BioBill
it is all about the politics isn't it?
There are many good technical discussions presented on this board about the technical merits of Vascepa. But at the end of the day, it is politics that is killing Amarin and Vascepa. Vascepa has to obtain approval from the Democrat run FDA, and then Vascepa will have to somehow survive the Democrat rammed through the system without any checks & balances Obamacare, which will end up regulating approvals of drugs through insurance companies. The Republicans have been plowed over by the Democrats when it comes to "healthcare" and many other things, so the Democrats own whatever happens to the healthcare system in the future. End of story.
stu, the Form 4s would be associated with the Amarin management selling their shares on the open market - they don't have to sell their shares to a specific entity, the entity exercising the warrants. So again, the warrants are purchased and held (not sold Staccato) by an Angel investor and (possibly but we don't know yet) some Amarin management sold some of their "free shares" that they previously awarded themselves when they knew that the price was around $1.50, the warrant price or purchase price by the angel investors, since Amarin management believes that will be the highest price we will see for a while. And again, this is all speculative on my part but there had to be a reason we saw the share price spike to $1.50 (as angel investor exercised their warrants) quickly and then quickly spiked back down as Amarin management sold their "free shares".
stu, per one of my posts above, I indicate some future SEC filings would show management selling - if I am correct - and as I mention above my speculation may be incorrect - all I know is that the trading activity over the last week is suspect and there is a reason it went up to 1.5 quickly and then dropped significantly after some shares were traded at that level. If this continues to climb from this point on, then my speculation is incorrect and hopefully it will reach Staccani's lofty speculation of $30+ per share in the future - then we will all be happy and will quit feeling screwed by FDA and Amarin Management.
No Staccani. I am indicating that (I think) some of Amarin management, who has awarded themselves free shares in the past, sold some of their shares to the Angel investors who exercise their warrants to purchase those shares at $1.50 a share. The Angel investors keep their shares and some of Amarin management unloaded some of their free shares for a buck fifty per share gain. Why would the Angel investors buy more shares when Amarin management is selling some of theirs? Because they know Amarin management will just issue themselves more free shares in the future and the Angel investors will be rewarded with probably even lower price warrants in the future. Of course they believe (and well all hope) that the future of the company is bright and the price per share will reach, what did you post? $30 to $1,500 per share. LOL! Keep toking that funny weed Staccato.
No Staccani, your post here is the most clueless so far in 2015. $30 to $1,500 per share. LOL! - just absolutely very laughably clueless. But please be assured that I am very much the AMRN bagholder and would absolutely love to be able to sell my shares at $30+ each, which would net me $2MM or more in gains. But the corrupt federal government and inept Amarin management will ensure this will not happen.
Retired, perhaps I am stupid for believing some of Amarin management dumped their free shares to the last investors exercising their warrants to buy for $1.50. Time and SEC filings may indeed show that some of Amarin did dump some of their free shares they previously awarded themselves yesterday. If the SEC filings do not show this, I guess I am wrong. I'm just tired of Amarin management awarding themselves higher salaries and free shares while the stock has dwindled to almost nothing over the last 3 years, and the recent action in the stock price indicates some kind of manipulation to me.
Computer algorithms and at least 2 companies trading between each other can create a momentum trading environment that draws in other investors to push the stock price higher. And of course this can also be used to create a decreasing stock price environment. There are several companies who are large angel investors for Amarin and they can execute these sort of trades amongst themselves.
I'm a jaded long and agree with your point bobo - this stock is definitely manipulated to help Amarin Management and their investor angel friends.
as predicted. Some days it closes a little over 1 and some days it closes a little under 1. All controlled by hedge fund computers trying to scoop up the shares from retail shareholders. The only way it will stay above 1 is to get more good news. Like watching grass grow - or not grow if no sun & water are added. In the meantime we all post our own form of fertilizer. LOL!
Paulson & Co. by far owns the most shares at over 10 million shares. He can convert his shares to real gold if he wants at any time he wants. If he ever unloads a significant amount of shares it will not occur like the rest of us.
Well, the hedge fund computers spared us all the agony of being 9 days over 1 and then going under 1 the 10th day. Guess they will ensure the price goes down for a while until the next news.
yet hold on to his significant investment in the GLD ETF? I realize he holds so much of this ETF he can convert his shares to real gold but, if that is the case, he must believe that this ETF is backed by real gold as the ETF claims.
will keep this slightly above 1 for 9 trading days and then make it close less than 1 on the 10th trading day; not allowing MCP to get off the delisting list. Wall Street is cruel.
