    Quishayk,
    You have my words I won't be posting my buy and sell nor my sentiment. I would just mind my own daily business of trying to stay one step ahead and be positive cash flow at the end of each day.

    Respect is a strong word. I am humbled and thank you for that. But I still call a spade a spade. Even people would misunderstand my point. For years and in all past messages from different boards as far back as the old old formats; I have always posted what I see.
    Folks who ignore Technical Analysis, buy high, set stop loss. The Crooks with Licence to Steal will rob them blind.

    2.5 bn is about right. Holder of 2 accounts. One I trade daily, the other core holding untouched. Most of the folks here see only one side of the coin, the bright and shiny side. I look at it both. I call it as I see it. In the same process has ruffled some feathers. Sometimes I am wondering why do I even bother with this board!!!!!

  • macugen_rules by macugen_rules Aug 27, 2014 7:23 PM Flag

    Unloaded another 2k shares AH @ 11.50. In the next couple days, I could get them all back under 11.

    2017-2018 time Frame.

    Sentiment: Hold

  • Net Money Flow: Negative 5.05 Millions.
    Uptick/Downtick Trade Ratio: Negative 0.86.
    Buyers Beware.

    Sentiment: Hold

    From the Company PR:
    " We expect that Phase 1 proof-of-concept results with ACH-3422 will be reported during the fall of this year, which we anticipate will lead to the start of a Phase 2 combination program to evaluate our proprietary doublet regimen for an eight week, or potentially shorter, treatment regimen for HCV that will begin before the end of 2014."
    Fall can be as early as the end of September. Need outstanding results or the stock would be pressured again because:
    The PDUFA date for Gilead's Sovaldi+Ledipasvir regimen is 10/10/2014 follows by Abbvie/Enta's 3 DAAs regimen set for 12/21/2014 or earlier.

    Don't you know the Shorts are using the same Tools I use every day. They know when 3422 POC would be available, they look at overbought versus Oversold, money flow. uptick versus downtick.
    Difference is I don't want to short Biotech stocks as they have been good to me over these Years; especially Achillion. If you only know how much money I put into this. Nothing makes me Happier one day when we win Big in this.....so I don't have to grow more callouses on my #$%$ not counting my eyes/back hurt at the end of each day!. I need my nap now. No longer a young stud like most of you.

    Resort on Name Calling will automatically get you on my ignore. You remove your own post but I saw it before.
    I don't need to short this stock to make money as I want to prove my point that TA works.

  • macugen_rules macugen_rules Aug 27, 2014 2:07 PM Flag

    and that very Money is being dumped to the unsuspected Buyers!LOL. I won't know until the Market Closes. Guess is another Negative Money flow today.

    Why do you look at the Coin on one side only? Money came in but money also went out. Yesterday, there was a net -2.69 Millions flowed out of the stock. The uptick is in negative territory as compared to the day before (Uptick/Downtick Trade Ratio was negative @ -.90)

    no buyout..back to $9 soon

    We know how good 3102 is. Data backed the compound through two phases of trials. The Value of Achillion depends largely on how successful POC will be. I truly hope they don't push the window too far out. I do believe the 300mg dose is the most optimium. Heck, the company would go as low as 200 to 250 mg given the effectiveness of 3102 and a PI.
    From your Mouth to God' ears (...buout north of 60...).
    I guess POC results will be released in mid November as the 2014 AASLD is near.

    magnam,
    Set up your account like I did or you can allocate 5 to 10% of your core Holding and generate income when the opportunity present. Me and you bought low enough so in a way there is a derisking factor. If the Company gets taken out before the POC data of 3422 were made public; all you lose would be the gain on the 5 to 10% of your total holding. My strategy is to buy back every share in my trading account lower than the price I sold thus pocket the difference.

    So who bought

    Frustration is coming from those who ignore other factors and can't stand when I posted my trades. So we have rumors of Buy out every other just different flavor.
    They don't understand the Future of Achillion and its stock price now rely heavily on how good the Data from the POC of 3422.
    They have completed 28 days Toxicity studies on 2 animal models. Followed by additional 3 months. A buy out won't be entertained until the Data were made Public.

    No need to rub it in......as they grilled my #$%$ for trading this stock while holding to my core position. Some would say I trade or eat chicken as they prefer steak(LMAO) for pennies but those pennies add up really fast when thousand of shares were traded each day.....But don't tell that to the Cult Leader and his minions as they are so fixated on Buy Out ignoring everything else. I said before those so called Longs are in this for quick money and when thing doesn't pan out the way they wanted; they will in turn become the worst bashers.
