    Either someone is gaming the price or we finally found the bottom. Here's hoping the bleeding is over.

    Hopefully he has removed himself permanently from the board as well.

    I doubt there was anything of value disclosed at the meeting. My guess is this is dead money (as it has been for years now) until we get iSONEP results.

    Nivolumab vs Asonep

    The way an ROFR works is if LPTN gets an acceptable offer from someone for ASONEP, Pfizer has the option to force LPTN to sell it to them under the same terms instead of the competitor and I don't believe the option limits LPTN from getting offers even now. They just have to run them by Pfizer first to see if Pfizer wants to get in or pass. In that light, there would be no reason for an early opt in unless someone made an offer. Regardless, as I said before, I think an opt in is unlikely. Never say never but a buyout would make the most sense if they wanted ASONEP..

    This stock is half of what it was 1 year ago

    If Pfizer is interested in anything here, my opinion is they will buy everything and sell off what they don't want. I just don't see any benefit to executing or selling their option. In fact, I can't imagine that was ever their intention. I mean why would you? Besides, who's to say it isn't Pfizer we are talking about in this scenario anyway?

    I think they just put the option on the market to see what they could get. Since there was no serious interest, they are sitting on it for now. If they really don't want any of it, they will likely try to sell the option with good results or let it expire with mediocre or bad. If they want anything, my best guess is they will make an offer. But, the company is under no obligation to accept it so there is still an out. Even if there is a brewing war between Pfizer and Management and Pfizer executes the iSONEP or ASONEP option or both, the company is suddenly worth a lot of money anyway so it is a win win for LPath. Either they get it cheap or they get a big payday and everyone goes away with $$$.

    I have no crystal ball or inside information here. This is just my gut based on what I have seen in the past and my experience working on deals. Here's hoping...

    You and I will never be able to vote him out. It was made very clear after he was able to pass his ludicrous "pay for negative performance" bonus and the registration by us, that he and his buddies control the vote. If the board won't get rid of him, our only recourse is to sell our shares and move on. The unfortunate reality of being at the bottom of the capital food chain in a market with no real checks and balances.

    Charles, there is absolutely NOTHING in ANYTHING I have said about iSONEP failing. Do you read or just type responses randomly? Why would I invest in something that I was convinced was a failure? Give it a rest. You are ridiculous.

    No one including you knows what is going to happen with iSONEP. Everything is a 'hope" right now and we are all hoping Phase I has merit and reasonably translates in some fashion to Phase II before management digs the hole too much deeper.

    There is a vote coming up next month. I suggest you focus your efforts there and try to understand the ramification of a yes or no on the issues at hand and stop grasping.

    This exact scenario has played out many times over the last several years here including the volume spike. Take a look at the price history since about 2010. You never know when "the one" will pass but the timing of this one seems like more of the same to me. Not to mention the market took a hit today anyway.

    I actually picked up a few more shares yesterday and today. Not buying the BS. I think we are going to get diluted but I still believe it will be north of $4 which means they should push the price back up going into any offering. guess we'll see. Not my first, second or third time clinching my teeth while buying in these dips.

    Pfizer's option II

    They also can't accumulate more than 5% without having to report their position which would give away the acquisition. So those that were acquiring shares prior to a purchase would likely stay under the reporting threshold anyway so you would never know. But like I said, they just don't do it that way.

    Someone just dumped or someone was just given? For every seller there is a buyer. My question is who is the seller? Scott has been hitting the ATM pretty hard. How do you know this isn't a "friends and family" ATM release? Again, this isn't anything new. Show me some news and we'll talk. 4Q is still too far away.

    Says there were only 64K against the move to Delaware. I find that highly unlikely as well as the broker non-vote number being so high. Something fishy here...

    I posted a while back here that I had this issue on another stock I owned and after months of attempts, finally spoke with someone at FINRA directly about it. Their response was (of course) that they take this stuff seriously and investigate any report of improper trading but then when pressed on what they actually do about it, I was simply told they do not report any findings or actions on any of their members. FINRA is a sham organization that regulates nothing and simply reports what they are given. It should be disbanded because it gives a false sense of security. I honestly don't know that the SEC is much better. I think you would have to take out a nationwide ad campaign highlighting the impropriety and put them on the hot seat to get them to act on anything under a billion.

    In the end as you guys have pointed out many times, this is still a long-term gamble and as sad as it is, I just averaged down a little. Probably won't increase my position from here. This is still a write-off waiting to happen IMO, albeit with improved odds. NITE can go back to doing what they do best in the voids.

    Good luck to you guys too.

    It could actually also be an increase in the shares outstanding and actually left the valuation alone. Maybe they baked in more shares either for the most recent issuance of ATM shares or the expectation of more? I don't remember when the $13 was made public but it might have been before the additional shares from the latest Q. Need to get the report...

    Those 100 share buys

    john_j_315 john_j_315 Jun 13, 2014 2:26 PM Flag

    If you see 100 share trades in a $4 stock, 99% chance it is dark pool stuff. That sounds more sinister than it is. Just market players hiding their total trades. So instead of seeing a 5,000 or 10,000 trade, they hit a dark pool first and you see it in lots of 100 so you can't tell how big it was. Reporting at FINRA is just getting up an running. Be curious to see if LPTN ever hits the reports. FINRA is a joke and their reporting is suspect at best but I guess it is better than nothing which is what we have had to date. Buyer beware...

    I am guessing Charles is on a soap box about now telling all three people there how great the science is and Scott is standing right behind him yelling "Can I get an Amen?!" while picking his pockets.

    One word - Greed. The company has been selling shares at lower prices for years now and continuously throwing teasers at us along the way to keep us buying with ZERO actual results. All the while there is a never ending flow of cash going out the door to restructure the company to their benefit to keep the printing machine going instead of pushing the indications. It is to the point of being absurd. This is a textbook example of what poor management and a lackadaisical board can do to an investment. They are protecting themselves instead of taking a risk like the rest of us. Who knows whether they know anything or not about the results. My guess is they do not and are simply getting what they can, while they can "just in case".

    I have said it a million times and I will say it again - if iSONEP fails phase II, this is a likely a dead investment for a very long time if not forever and we will likely see half our money disappear at the announcement. Forget aSONEP and forget Lpathomab. They are irrelevant for the foreseeable future without positive phase II on iSONEP. This is now more of a gamble than an investment and I for one am not going "all in" with the history here.

    You have to wonder why they wouldn't do that don't you? In reality, why didn't they release the info at ASCO like the rest of the world? Just dumb or playing games? Has to be one or the other because I can't imagine any reason you would not want to spread positive news. And if it is games, to what end? Is it related to the redomicile effort? Seems a little shady if you ask me.
