Rya, the best part of the Motley Fool article was the following:
"Personally, I believe it could be a risk worth taking for biotech savvy investors with a high appetite for risk. J&J has a pretty good track record of picking out winners to partner with, and if approved imetelstat could have a genuine shot at approaching or eclipsing blockbuster status. It's a name I'd suggest keeping your eye on."
Now I know he wasn't talking about most of us on this board, when speaking of savvy investors, but if it all works out , then maybe we are savvy folks, after all.
Somebody is gobbling up this stock during extended trading hours. It's obvious that something behind the scenes seems to be going on, something us small individual investors are not privy, too.
"You saw me climbing the wall at Fenway?"
That and throwing everything you could find in the dugout onto the field, when you became unglued over a umpires call, while playing for Cleveland. The fans went nuts, they loved it!
Hope you're right Jimmy, but sometimes you're just plain crazy.
OK, anyway the DOW is down 100+ today, and GERN is dropping, too. And if we don't get news soon, expect GERN to drop into the 2's again, soon. And I am saying this as a current shareholder, because I calls em, as I see em.
Jk, you're a good cheerleader, too bad it's not working.
Lets see, the Futures are down big time this morning, and there's no real news from Geron, so far this morning. So I am predicting a down day for GERN stock, probably lose all of yesterdays gains. Hope I am wrong, but reality bites.
"because they don't want the pps to shoot up before they buy it?"
Cal, if that happens the small individual investor will be shafted once again, because J & J will buy GERN for a much lower price. And they will only buy knowing that imetelstat works. And that they can get a $100+ stock for probably around $10 per share. Thus proving once again that powers that be get the honey, and the small investor gets the stinger.
Jw, I am still long, but I also believe in stating the facts, too.
"If you invest solely on news you are a poor lady."
If we don't get news, soon, we'll all be poor ladies, including you.
Weg403, calling you an ignorant #$%$, would be a compliment, so I won't.
Rebecca , go back to Sunnybrook Farm, and sleep with the rest of the sheep.
