    Just used this opportunity to buy more shares. Amazing how one person has so much impact on share price (short term). "Every" comment he made has been done to death for along time (and discounted). My guess is that the big investors just took this opportunity to sell high/buy low... and we'll be right back up probably by Tomorrow or Monday when the dust settles...

    Yes - "shorts" are not about to get, but "are" getting chopped at the knees I agree.... Price Target from more than one very reputable source now raised to $8. Do the math. This Company moves quickly in share price on "any" positive news and there are a ton of potential positive catalysts going forward - increased business, new Customers, statement of expected profitability by end of 3rd Quarter..... At a "minimum" you can take the ride up a bit more and sell if you aren't in it long term... easy money... even the 5% gain today is nothing to sneeze at. Remember this market is one of the best ones to make a lot of money (high risk too)... Biotechs are the same. If you do your homework it's a no brainer.. short or long depending on the situation. Going Long now (at least for the next few months) is the only thing that makes sense.... Go Long Buddy... you'll kick yourself if you don't. If you are a Broker trying to reassure yourself and Clients you risk looking foolish at a minimum ... there is a time to change course (quickly) and Brokers (in my opinion) often become too attached to a stock or a position at the expense of their Clients... my guess is that you are one of them.

    Its the damn label warnings

    by science_on_my_mind Jun 30, 2014 9:50 AM

    Stupid Comment. The Warning Label is absolutely nothing. It applies to the people who shouldn't be taking this drug (or smoking, or using an Asthma inhaler or....) in the first place. It's called "common sense 101" dummy. Have you ever listened to a Drug Advertisement? If you did and considered the risk to every drug on the market you'd not take any medication... BUT if you have a serious condition those fears generally go out the window especially when the risk is low. As for replacing injectable that was known from the beginning.. this is nothing new. It does, however, have a very wide use potential for the vast majority of people with Diabetes (both Type 1 and Type 2) - fast acting and can take anywhere with little interference with daily routine as opposed to where injections were used previously. I'd say "Nice Try," but that would be a lie... sell your shares before they hit $15 and you go broke shorty.

    Sentiment: Strong Buy

  • Because of the large Short Position and strong negative stance taken by self proclaimed experts like Feuerstein it is expected today that there will be some downward trending short term. The key though is the "fact" that this is a major break through in Diabetes treatment (and the warning added to the label is a complete non-issue especially when compared to almost "every" other drug on the market - it is only an issue with people with Asthma and COPD - duh ... common sense). The FDA approval and subsequent upgrades and exposure will bring in Buyers by the droves. Shorts can only do so much. This will be $15 or higher in a couple of days. Any news or rumors even on partnering or "interest" in a buy out will propell the stock to $20 plus. I thought about selling some shares this morning, but decided against it and instead am buying more now that it's dipped below $11 pps. Opportunities like this don't come often. Don't get caught up in the Cash burn scare. This is the same with almost all Biotech startups and in this case a Partnership will wipe this out as an issue. I wonder if Feuerstein will acknowledge that he blew this one? Doubt it.

    Global Insulin Market is 20 billion plus and expected to grow 20% per year. Current Market is over 80% controlled by two Companies. If MNKD supplants 50% of this business which is certainly possble ... well do the math. China alone could be a major market and it's growing rapidly.

    Common Sense. If you had Diabetes wouldn't you? People have been using inhalers for years for other reasons. It's a no brainer.

    Short Squeeze still imminent?

    by mnholdem Jun 6, 2014 9:22 AM
    jrsautr jrsautr Jun 6, 2014 10:16 AM Flag

    According to what I know coverage must be initiated within 11 days which is well before FDA approval. There is little doubt that Shorts will cover (and it will be a lot of shares) which will rocket the price back up over $11 shortly (no pun intended). We are too far from July 15 plus the share price has been high so this is almost a given (based on how the share price is trending .. up not down). My original plan hasn't changed due to the "blip" from yesterday (which I used to buy more shares).

    4000 at an "average" share price of $8.1. I've been buying all day so my average is up. Will buy more if the share price keeps getting driven down below $10.... it's a gift.

    Another possible leak

    Partnership, Buy Out, ???/ What is the Rumor... "Get Ready" for what????? .... I'm Longer than Long (and bought more today when it dropped below 10), but that's based on what I already know... I would "think" that a major player would seriously be interested. With all the hurdles now taken care of Afrezza should really take over the Diabetes market from needles... easily. Has so many benefits to using not to mention faster acting. Inhalers are already used for other conditions all the time and have been for years so this will NOT be an obstacle. So -- Buyout???? My guess is that it's coming sooner or later and it will be for a lot of money.

    mannkind::::Bull case is way too strong

    by stocksspecialist Jun 5, 2014 1:39 PM
    jrsautr jrsautr Jun 5, 2014 1:49 PM Flag

    Of course, but it also predicted a further run up to approval. What is happening now is the significant Short position trying to avoid losing too much money. I think this is a gift. Once the Shorts run out of steam they will get out and bet on a drop "post" approval before making more moves... during this time the share price will be back to 11 or even 12... we have weeks before FDA approval so no way shorts will be able to hold it down that long.

    I am enjoying this. Just buying more on the dips...in 300 share increments. No brainer. It will resume run up shortly - guaranteed we will be above $11 again - maybe today even, but could drag a couple more trading sessions.

    The comparison he made was NOT valid. He left out the difference the an Obesity drug is NOT tied to potential immediate life or death, seizures, etc..... Feuerstein always slips in something that sounds valid until you step back and realize that he's still a short basher so hardly objective.

    Weight control and obesity is important, but Diabetes is or can be "immediate life or death"...huge difference. Quite right. I didn't catch this.

    Sentiment: Strong Buy

  • What Feuerstein wrote (run up and then potentially a drop after approval) has been predicted by others so this is nothing new. It is "one" possibilty based on concerns with Mannkind taking product to the next level. There are other possibilites too including partnership being announced and outright buy out. In thinking about this and all the objections to me "if" I had diabetes (probably will eventually) it is a no brainer than this Afrezza will be a hit. How many people use inhalers for asthma or for other reasons. I see no one out there screaming and moaning they way the do here about using an inhaler for diabetes that works better than a needle (along with all the other benefits). Yes there may be issues if Mannkind is forced to go it alone (I doubt that though), but Feuerstein once again only harps on the negative. He didn't even admit he was wrong to this date. He would NOT have predicted the share price where it is now... and now he admits it will run up even higher? His article wasn't wrong, but again it is only one possible scenario and "look out below" is probably way off from the mark (a drop yes, but this phrase indicates crash and burn... no one expects that). Well I am up over 50% (on average) and probably will buy more in about a minute.... see you.

    Investing 101 -- Do NOT short a stock that is heading up based on high probability of major positve catalyst where share price has been trending up regularly based on this. In addtion pay attention to the shares held short. If this is dropping significantly lower than it has been in a long time that is an indication that major Investors (not the little guys like you) are NOT shorting either.

    Share price already topped 10 today. It will probably hit 11 or so before FDA approval (and we have a lot of time for the trending to continue up) so where can you Short??? If you do you'll be burned big time.

    You really are a very poor Investor if you are serious about shorting now.

    Mann "may" have a partnership lined up already too so post FDA approval the share price could rocket. I would be very nervous about shorting even after FDA approval. Best to go long and sell some shares on the top before approval and hold the rest to see what happens after. If it drops then use the money from the shares you sold and buy more shares on the dip(s). Risk of going long - very low - Risk of Shorting - "extremely high" (that you will lose money).

    Ominous FDA Delay

    Of course I'm going to put you on ignore.... but wanted to state that you are a complete idiot first. Shorting this stock now proves you definitely should get out of the stock market since you have zero common sense... and if you think posting stupid comments like this has any impact at all that is just additional proof of this. Hope you aren't a Broker. If so I'd suggest trying out a new career... fast.

    It sure appears the Officers of this Company are seriously committed based on the Share info. ... that's a very good sign (assume I'm interpreting this correctly..... usually the spin on shares held by Officers is spun negatively by Shorts when they sell... so....).

  • I noticed how Adam Feuerstein's "attempted" Base piece had it's normal negative impact on share price of the stock he is bashing ...... NOT ! MNKD is up. It appears no one paid any attention to his latest. To be fair he just passed on a silly list of "seven deadly sins" (common sense for "any" stock), but mentioned MNKD as an example (why? who knows)..... He must have had nothing else to write today and felt the need to get something out.
