    Have to be honest here, the plunge to .48 surely was hard to stomach. Part of you simply want to think ONCS got caught up in the biotech selloff, but also in the back of your mind you wonder if damaging news was imminent. Personally I currently own 200K shares at an average pps of .41 so yeah, I was watching - only natural - even though I'm long. Watching paper profits evaporate quickly was tough.

    On the other hand, .48 was the support level that I really was watching. If we would have breached that, I would have protected my investment from losses. Remember, ONCS went from .48 to .94 in a matter of 10 days or so. I'm sure many stops were taken out on bandwagon investors during that race to .94 back in Feb/March and also stops on those that wanted to protect their investment and lock in on some percentage profit. So for the remaining longs, consider this retracement a healthy pullback for the pps. Being that the pps is recovering quickly, confirms that is all it was. I feel more confident than ever this gem will continue to move up now that we have weathered this storm.

    ONCS moving forward

    Retail Investors are the 'last to know' when detrimental news is being released. That is a given. Institutions, MM's, hedge funds,.... they all have the upper hand at reacting to it with technology and electronic trading these days. Institutions also react to chatter within trading pits which is also distributed back to their back offices instantaneously. And when there's a lull between catalysts and trading volume is low - especially these OTC speculative stocks, MM's can drive the price up or down at will to get retail investors to react and get the snowball rolling. They prepare themselves and profit off those moves. So in a nutshell, I agree with you - fear drives the market down in many cases, but otherwise you need to prepare and conduct your own due-diligence on companies you invest in and trust your instincts.

    You nailed it by saying ' the game is rigged and it isn't, and you have to work within the system to be profitable'. We retail investors (speaking for myself) know this. They don't force retail investors to invest in this game.

    Congrats to all longs...surely been a test of patience and nerves. Partnership next?? Believe a lot of planning has been in place based on the trial outcome. Hold on tight - and enjoy the ride!

    Not going to miss this one.. Now that AVNR won their patent litigation trial, it will be interesting what management says moving forward. IMO, EU partnership has been planned and thought out for some time now but hinged on the outcome of the trial. I expect news to hit fast on this topic among others. Combined with new round of upgrades, us longs certainly have something to cheer about. Been a long time coming. Congrats all.

    Sentiment: Hold

    Hearing AVNR talk about their disappointment in the current pps, I was surprised the question wasn't asked as to why AVNR Public Relations Department didn't defend the company and their shareholders when that first erroneous Gravity Research article was published. Seems AVNR's momentum at the time was deflated instantly by the fictitious news in that report . Makes you wonder where the pps would be if AVNR didn't get attacked the way it did.

    Also, I was surprised there was no mention of EU partnership news nor any questions raised pertaining to that. You would think big pharm companies had a plan in place - hedging on the outcome of the patent litigation trial. This is one instant when 'no news is good news' in my opinion. Can't be leaking good news if indeed it's in the works.

    Maybe a large hedge fund flipped their short position and went long.

  • Quote from the article: "Said Robert Pierce, M.D., Chief Medical Officer, “We are excited by the opportunity to present data from our Phase 2 study, which is nearing completion. Our presentation will be one of those highlighting the therapeutic potential of intralesional therapy and the power of modulating the immune system in the treatment of cancer.”

    How can you not be excited about this? Surely a positive tone in this statement made by Robert Pierce.

    No doubt long investors who stick it out will be rewarded with this gem. ONCS is nearing positive catalysts which will equate to substantial pps gains.

    I am amused at all the shorts and their attempts at dogging this company. Trust your instincts - you'll be amused too for they will all be our friend soon as they scramble for the exits.

    Sentiment: Hold

    I can relate with you rside..lol...My wife bought 350 shares back during the Lidak days and we have accumulated (should say I have) over the years. Currently have a whopping 70 more shares than you. Been stubborn with this one - obviously - I am SO LOOKING FORWARD to this buyout too!

    Sentiment: Hold

  • Wishful thinking but I hope INO Management orchestrated a monumental catalyst announcement for tomorrow morning to coincide with day-one post reverse split. That definitely would propel the pps northward and get it back to where it belongs prior to the reverse split announcement.

    You're too funny inoinvestor101 with your assumptions... LOL I have nothing to prove to you.. So who am I... a scam artist or a paid basher? This is a first for me - being categorized by a big boy behind a keyboard.

    My perspective

    Enjoyed your post taghova. I'm in agreement with you.

    However, I'm still grasping the comment encompassing the warrants.. "Additionally, investors will receive warrants to purchase up to an aggregate of 7,887,325 shares of common stock at an exercise price of $0.90 per share for a term of five years."

    It's the 'five years' that bug me. No crystal ball here, but where do we expect the pps to be 5 years from now? I would certainly think well north of $0.90 which would give this investor one heck of a deal if they were to exercise 7,887,325 additional shares. So your theory of this investor owning 10% thus a potential partner makes all the more sense.

    It equated to further dilution which averages the pps down - near-term anyway. But I'm in total agreement with you that this controlled strategy to raise quick cash and get a major institutional investor aboard at the same time will benefit all of us sooner than we think.

    Sentiment: Hold
