I own INO from about 55 cents, I thought about oncs when it was 22 cents but found isco and decided it would be best to diversify my spec stocks a bit. I intend to add to my isco through out this year. Once this stock gets more notice I think we will have a run up like INO. I sold enough ino to get all my money back plus a large tax bill at the end of the year.
Sentiment: Strong Buy
WOW, you must have crystal ball, stock closed at 2,99. so you're have right already. I bet we see a bigger dump tomorrow. I own shares and options so I want it to go up but sometimes I have to look at all sides.
If your shares are paid for(not on margin) the broker cannot borrow them to loan to shorts without paying you. Call your broker. But I do agree options do have a downside as they enable a short to buy insurance. They also enable longs to buy insurance.
I have a margin account but have only bought stock one time with margin which I covered within 2 days.
Many brokers will not allow you to buy a less then 5 dollar stock on margin.
I had a ton of ino and was going to sell some of those shares I bought for 55 cents and buy oncs. I didn't stick to my plan but it worked out ok with ino now around 3.50.
I added yesterday, I was going to wait for a few pennies lower but decided I wanted a sizable position just in case this stock gets noticed. What other stocks are you following steve I've seen your id somewhere before.INO,ONCS?
Bulls make money,Bears make money, pigs get slaughtered.
I've took enough off the table to have a large profit and still have a position larger then I would normally have in any company.
As Yogi Bear once said"Predictions are hard to make especially about the future."
Good idea, they can see where all the stop loss points are and will bear raid to drop it to those to cover their shorts. I know from experience with DNDN a few years ago. Nasdaq let the trades stand and screwed the retail investors. I didn't have stops in so I survived their 30 second raid.
If you're gonna use a stop do it mentally.
If you borrowed money(margin) to buy your shares the broker can borrow them to loan to shorts, the shorts pay a premium to the broker.
Call your broker to be sure as they don't all have the same rules.
These are hard to borrow shares, which means most are held in individual accounts that can not be borrowed without the owners permission. Most brokers would not allow retail to buy these on margin. If they were bought on margin the broker can loan your shares to shorts without your permission.
Good common sense, I started buying at 80 cents and bought a lot more as it went down to 44 cents, my ave price was 54 with 100k. I've sold enough to triple my money and still have a large position. I won already, I could've won bigger but pigs get eaten.
This is a short squeeze, They can't protect themselves with options so they pay the price. I believe somehow news is known and they found out something we will know in the near future.
I'm griping also, I sold $35 puts 2 weeks ago for $1.15 and was sure I would get the stock put to me. oh well I'll sell some march puts.
I read an article today about researchers in japan who have discovered a simpler method to generate stem cells and decided to do some research to find if any public company was affiliated with them. No luck on that but this little company showed up on an article last december on wallstreet cheat sheet.
Looks interesting I will do some more dd before I buy.
What other picks do you guys have??
I have a big winner with ino and am looking at oncs plus many others.
No news but above ave volume already, some Institutions buying. Tons of short posts shows they are on the edge of covering. AF should post another hit piece soon, he is one of the short tools last resort to kill a stock.
You're using the wrong strategy, watch cramer and you find which stocks him and his cohorts at the street are gonna short as close to hell as they can.Having been watching them for a while I can say they are successful often enough. It's all about the money not about principles.
