  • I'm curious if the big tobacco companies have ever thought about subsidizing their normal business practices (i.e., selling cigarettes) with more virtuous activities. (i.e., curing diseases) At first glance it doesn't seem like a good business strategy to invest so many resources into a completely new and extremely divergent business plan. However, if you were able to utilize much of your already available resources (millions of acres of tobacco plants) at an effective zero cost delta to produce new or even old vaccines with a high production rate, it then seems like a pretty good business model.

    Tobacco makes cigarettes, cigarets cause cancer, cancer cures are synthesized from tobacco leaves. (as well as many other diseases)

    It seems to me a company like IBIO should have thought this through. Forget partnering with big pharma. Big tobacco is, and always has been, the ticket to prosperity.

  • Email them yourself.. Charles Jones will tell you that they will release results as soon as they have it. This is good news IMO as the drugs have been vetted as effective. If they were ineffective then they wouldn't still be in testing.

    No. They are not. You can simply ask investor relations and they will tell you that they are not done testing. This is not bad, rather good that the drugs are still in testing which removes doubt that they are ineffective.

    They don't belong on this board and your insight suggests that other people should be aware/buy it. That's pumping another company.

    Why are you speaking off topic? This is the HEB board and you never once mentioned other stocks under your Hebmaster id. Now you change id's and your pumping other stocks on this board? Shameful.
