You gotta' love it when you turn on the tube and CNBC has comments about the symposium on cancer all over the tape. Thus far only the big pharmas mentioned but I bet that when our speaker is finished we get on the tube. Just for fun.....close of 85/87 today.
I am not being mean nor a smart alec but with a statement like that I am afraid you have a great deal to learn about the market and how the professionals l weigh their decision making. A month from now in a quiet session with no news you may see this stock at a $1.25 and ask, "What happened?" The answer to your question will be, "Go back to the dates of very early June and you will know the answer.
I don't mean to enter a negative note to our joy this morning but a few comments from some of you indicating displeasure with the stock tailing off a bit after that sensational opening please keep this in mind....Much like the rabbit and the hare in that infamous race won by the much slower hare because the rabbit refused to take a much needed rest and so tired and got beat. Same here, all that short-term profit taking is a very healthy step and necessary for a much larger advance this month. If you wish, go ahead and act like the rabbit, sell now and hope you are lucky enough to get back in. I promise you we hares will have the last laugh including a much fatter bank account.
and despite all the conjecture here, it still boils down to the essential fact that a minor setback occurred with the new dilution and a resulting loss of share appreciation. In no time at all the stock will be back in the eighty plus area(perhaps even next week) and this board will be directing it's attention once again to essential matters and the enjoyable conversation of realizing how many new doors will be opened when the stock prices topples the magic $1.00 mark. I am presently stocking my liquor cabinet in preparation for that event. Have a good day everybody, enjoy the banter produced on these boards, it can be good for the soul but not a key to swelling the size of your bank account.
Hi guys..I don't usually post but feel compelled to in view of what i witnessed on Friday. As most of you I own a ton of stock and feel renewed at this late development. I study tape movements looking for any tell-tale signs of what might be in our immediate future and i do it quite well if you will pardon my immodesty. In viewing the chain of events Fri. level2 indicated halfway thru the session that an immense block of 294,000 shares for sale at .82 awaited any who dared approach. All morning long much smaller blocks of 5 and 10 thousand were taken down in due time and I was resigned to a close of 81 or so knowing that with one minute to go that large sized block was still there and we were still at 81 or so. Get this, in less than sixty seconds somebody reached up and took down the entire block . Enough said..I look forward to next week.
My God, I just read the entire statement on my trading acct written on Business Wire and this is so bullish i am getting excited even at my age. WOW
I wrote a similar post a very long time ago on this subject and now , once again I believe the topic has to be discussed so we can go on with our business. I might have to do this in a double posting. Way back when I had first decided to take a good look at this stock i read a lengthy article over on the Alpha site in which the writer pointed out the good and the bad of ONCS. My point here is not to discuss the good, we all are pretty much on top of that but in writing about the bad one element really hit home with me and ever since an occasion pops up that reminds me of the peril in dealing with a true penny stock or better said, an OTC stock. Some investors believe that if it is not a major listing then it is a nasdaq stock but that is in error because we have the infamous OTC market or as some call it, "the black hole of the industry." ...to be con't
I know we are off topic here but it is early so I hope posters don't mind. I halfway agree with the owners's complaints but not his remedy since it could easily end up in a half- dozen or even less horses running in the belmont Stakes.I think a much better plan would be to allow other horses in late but establish a penalty of weight for later entrants. Since as three-year olds they all carry equal weight but if some owner decides late he wants in on the preakness or the Belmont let him know he will carry an extra five lbs or whatever amount the track decides. I think that is fair and ensures a decent field for the crown.
I almost hate to say this but in checking back to the April fiasco this same gang of traders took our stock down 21 cents in very little time but it was recaptured in 48 hours (19 cents of it) We are down now from yesterday's high of 89 cents to apprx 76 and that is only 13 to date. These shorts have a ton of money and play the game well.
After some detective work and good old-fashioned expierience at reading between the lines I now announce that we will open up to a nice gain. Man times this stock will open in a quiet fashion, even down early despite good news but not this time. Look for a BID price of 83 cents or more several minutes into the session and a plus half-dozen or so for the day.
The real worm in the can on this whole board is the biggest critic of most all other posters and that is obnoxious bb who seems to crucify anybody who disagrees with his argument and then attempts to degrade the poster with sarcasm. I think he wants to be king of the hill and therefore dismiss any poster who might stand in his way with a different opinion. Truly the ignore button was devised with him in mind so I will utilize it now. Good luck to all the rest of you posters.
I don't try anything. Several posters here told me they appreciated a comment on the current futures market and I have tried to provide it. Then you come along indicating your distaste for such data. Please put me on ignore so you can get some sleep
Darn it, I had removed you from the ignore list because I had been told you were removed from posting here due to your low IQ but here you are, cutting and clipping to suit your child-like responses. Okay, back to the big button but this time I will make sure it is permanent so that your infantile ways don't intrude upon the common sense threads on this board. Now go and take your pablum...BYE
Good morning everybody, although an old-time investor this is my first venture into DARA and one I have patiently waited for as I watched the downward spiral for sometime now. After reading the Alpha article earlier in the month I loaded my gun sensing we had or were about to hit bottom. It convinced me that despite the fact we still had plenty to overcome that in fact it was probable that we were about to embark on a long trip back up that hill and see daylight again. I was a substantial buyer the last two trading days and will continue to add up to the next CC and earnings. Just as an introduction I really don't get involved in name-calling, etc., and simply use the IGNORE button when I want to separate the chaff from the wheat. This stock will be in the four dollar range by next summer without the need of any "shocking news" and that "ain't" a bad move as they say.
But Fur these 12,000 shares were actually in four different transactions at four different times in checking with Nasdaq immediately thereafter. I was guessing maybe foreign interests who are linked to our exchange sites might have been responsible? Not quite fair I think for someone to set the tone for the day when we are not on equal footing. I know, no big deal but it still rankles me.
Things that take place in that shadowy market are a sight to behiold, that is if you can see them?? The article talked about how the trading pattern is dominated by a circle of pros on both the long and the short side and with the nature of the float and the size of their wallets they can pull off some amazing stuff and not raise an eyebrow because there are no eyebrows to supervise them. Do you really think that sudden drop in the stock some months ago and it's quick recovery in 48 hours was simply an accident when in fact a certain group made a ton of money on both the long and the short side.. How about yesterday? This has happened several times and what you witnessed was not simple profit-taking but an organized manuever by the group to pocket some real dollars. Let me finish by saying that we are all here to make a buck and we will long term but we must realize we are involved in an area considered 'dirty" by many and honestly brings to mind the question so obvious to all...'Why in the world does the company continue to exist in this devil's paradise when for not too many dollars more we could be a NASDAQ listed stock, eligible to trade in pre and post markets and free from the clutches of "the element"
We will have some work to do at 90 cents as they are bringing in some big guns to defend that price barrier. My guess..we will destroy them in time and move unto higher ground at the close.
In sifting thru the recent comments circulated about INO and a failed test regarding t-cell effects (denied by the company) I have no doubt investor confidence was shaken in the process and responsible for our huge percentage drop in price. Doesn't matter that it is an issue for that company and not us, since if any doubt lingers in the minds of investors. we are going to pay a price. Usually such concerns are short-lived and I look forward to a higher price this week (nothing dramatic) and the famed $1.00 level this summer.
