Hello. Haven't been here for few months. Market has been brutal. I've resigned that my idra long will be a long hold which is ok. But I did want to comment on the recent presentation. Like my original thesis in getting into this over a year ago, things are still very promising. I've got about 600k shares at basis of 2.90. Not happy obviously but I'm here for the long haul. For those longs that can't take the heat get out, for those shorts that post message after message about nonsense (you know who I'm talking about) get a life!
Good luck all.
Dna I don't know if you are long or short but in any case you sound like a moron to me. Yes I'm long 500k plus, taking my lumps for now. But I'm in it for the long haul. Won't sell until I hit my target or new info comes out. I can be patient. Been through this before many many times.
Well boys and girls the last month for idra has been painful. Started early dec w 400k. I now own more than 500k. Basis is now around 3.16. As I've said before I don't post on mbs too much but wanted to check in to see if any others have productive thoughts. No predictions by me but I will say that it's been frustrating as hell. I'm in this for the long long haul so won't sweat it too much. Anybody else who has a long term perspective please share. Good luck all!
hello folks. the past week hasn't been fun for idra, but i'm holding firm. I couldn't help myself and added another 20k since 3.60. Total of about 420k.
I obviously see this as being a multibagger over the next few years or else I wouldn't do this. The one thing that is painfully obvious is that this will continue to be a trading stock until there is more clarity on strength of science and business opportunity. The last few trading sessions has proven that the longs are simply not interested in holding this longer term (ie. for more than a few weeks). For those that are interesting in the long play here, I'm with you all and will continue to support until I see any reason to rethink. Unfortunately this is the nature of this type of stock. I've been through it before and it can get queasy. Remember it's your money so you need to feel comfortable.
I look forward to more productive conversations from longer term longs. Thanks all.
Thanks to you and Hugh for the posts. I hope we can continue productive dialogue.
As I mentioned in my previous posts, I agree with you and others that the weekend report was excellent. Still a ways to go but at some point the business side with become more of a factor in how the stock does. A couple of years ago I invested in another orphan company called Questcor. The stock was killed on a short attack from Citron. I was already in it before the attack so I had a choice of getting out or adding. I added and fortunately it worked out. Questcor had 19 indications approved and was a cash cow. That stock was in low single digits for for years and but got the business going and ultimately sold out for about $6 billion.
Because of the orphan status for IDRA, by definition the market opportunity could be smaller but in the case of QCOR the applications of the drug was significant. I'd like to understand better if IDRA can become that.
man, i don't get these mbs. I'm trying to thank hugh for the support but i can't seem to post. firstly, i'm not full of #$%$. Go to imgur and see my screen shot - cqu5UP3. not all shares in one account but here are some.
Secondly, thanks hugh. i did like report a lot. didn't see anything to complain about. Right now development seems on track so my bigger question is on the business side. Honing in on the applications seems tricky. Hope we can continue the conversation.
peter - yes, 99% of time mbs are a waste of time, but there has been occasion where serious folks gave interesting perspectives. that is all I was doing. I have done my dd. I am in it for the long haul. I have some experience with this sector, but I am also not arrogant enough to say I know everything. okay with you?
lol. i thought i could get some serious conversation going. i guess i was wrong. anybody want to direct me to a real mb that will have real conversation? btw, I do know the science. that is why i invested so much. i'm just looking for objective opinions on what was released on Sat. I'm not a shill, i'm not mgm. everything i said in my previous post was true. but there is no way for me to convince so i won't try. but if anybody knows of a good mb, please let me know.
Firstly, I don't post here much. A few here and there. Mostly just making fun of folks. But this is honestly a serious post. These are the facts for me.
I have been long for the last year and a half. Buying in various stages from 2.30 - 3.80. I currently hold about 400k shares at average basis of 3.1. When the stock was over 5 at the beginning of the year I felt so happy with myself. When it was down to mid 2s a few months ago I did not feel so happy.
Would it have been nice for the stock to have more than a 14% pop today? Maybe over 5? Sure, of course. But I'm in it for the long haul and i would not have sold a share either way. My question to those of you who can put together a coherent sentence without hyperbole (I'm talking to both longs and shorts - MGM, JK, Brett, Vulture, et al) is this....where are the red flags in the info from the weekend? Lots of good news obviously, but but I want to see with clear eyes. Any insights would be helpful. I hope this starts the a good PRODUCTIVE conversation. TIA.
am i long? am i short? am i a short pretending to be long or a long pretending to be short? ode to game theory ode to everybody. i don't get $10 a post or do i? hmmm??? questions, answers or both?
let me just say to jk, mgm, brett, vulture, et al.... I am my own man. sometimes I short, sometimes I'm long. I go where the wind takes me. I read reports, I do diligence, I make my trades. I don't take anything personally...money won is so much sweeter than money earned.
Come Monday what do I do with the idra? I stand ready. so should you. Read the report and you ask yourself if you want to be long or short. weakness kills and you will be led to slaughter.
Still can't figure where I stand? Does it matter? Play your hand and don't listen to MBs.
PS.. I"m long 400k shares. This you can believe.
yes, nice work y'all. i shorted 100,000 at 4.09. i just covered all of it at 3.93 and went long 100,000. woohoo. i'm the best!!!
LOL. Hey brett, the stock is up 19% in four days. Am i happy? Am i in a tizzy?? lol. Sure why not. I was just reading some of your posts. Man, you have a lot of time on your hands. If IDRA goes down 2 cents you are one in a tizzy (hello? hello? this is kettle....your black). Firstly, get a life, you're pathetic with your moronic post after post. Secondly, get a life, you sound like an idiot.
Your Tizzy Friend
dst, my favorite short! IDRA moves up in down market. Low volume. I'm sure you have an argument why that makes it a perfect time to short. You short more????
