    Put that JAASRA dork on 'Ignore'... no signs of intelligent life there.

  • Nothing warms my heart more to see the 10M shares share short being caught in a major squeeze....

    Lesson no. 5243

    Lesson no. 5244 .... "a tree is known by it's fruit"....

    I looked at your past 10 posts... if ANYONE appears to be a paid distorter,... It's YOU..... In your case.... a "short & distort".... Nothing but continued negative rants are evident in your posts.

    I doubt you're doing community service work on here... Therefore,.. a normal person would interpret your rants as indicative of either a short seller,.. or a minimum wage PAID basher...

    Care to come clean? Confession is good for the soul... but I doubt you believe that!

    after short failure and rebound

    does that mean shorts will be singing while they're covering? You said "song" covering...

    e.g. "Tip toe through tulips... by the window..."

    60,000.... watching for the price to get to the right level to double up.....

  • markbuti markbuti Aug 19, 2014 7:53 PM Flag

    stockstoshort,.... The answer to the questions are:

    Assuming you have made an accurate statement, why is that the case? (Read On)

    Is this a statement that the market place lost faith in their forecasts due to the previous debacle?
    * I HOPE so... this is the perfect setup for a huge reversal... big short interest... two previous quarters that disappoint the bear case.... The biggest opportunities are in stocks wherein the longs have become disillusioned,.. the shorts giddy.... and the trend reverses... we're seeing this at this very moment....

    Or does the market NOT like the current management team?

    * Regarding whether or not the "market" likes / dislikes the current management team... the market is both myopic in terms of too much & too little love... i.e. the market represents the net sum of investment sentiment... and the sentiment often swings too far in either direction.. I can give you numerous examples from both a positive & negative perspective....

    * The stock has & is currently being shorted... this will pass with significant reversal... There's proven scholarly written articles that boils down to the basic conclusion that... "short sellers will short a stock UNTIL it is no longer profitable for them... at that point.. .they begin to cover and actively seek to exit the trade.... *** THIS event is yet to happen,.. and I'm building my position based on it.....

    Or can you offer another logical explanation?

    * SPPI represents a stock wherein shorts have overplayed their hand... over-extended themselves... My gut says that a good portion of the shorts are going to be burned depending upon how many have options (I haven't checked on this yet)...

  • SPPI could easily correct 20% in the next few days... The shorts are going to try and constantly cover and short to cover their tracks,.. selling & buying between multiple accounts... Illegal, but unenforced... If investors can see through these shenanigans... they can simply sit back and watch the shorts tip toeing, then clamoring for the exits!

    Sentiment: Strong Buy

    another stupid question from a moron poster

    First, let me respond to your *fair* question...

    * What happens to SPPI shareprice if they announce negative results news and/or disapprovals?

    You're referring to the shareprice.... so I would say "it depends" which candidate product you're referring to..... and factoring the short interest.... it could be anywhere between -5 to - 20%.... but that reflects a lot of the short activity... meaning that marginal element of this group are short timers.... it drops... it comes back.....

    The good thing about SPPI is that they have an increasingly broad pipeline of approved,.. .revenue generating products... they're no "one-trick pony".... I've invested in biotech long enough to know that a hot stock can take you so far... but any negative results can cause a cataclysmic drop.... with SPPI at $500M market cap...the risk is very much weighted to the upside versus downside... Why? Look around and you can find plenty of near $0 revenue hot biotechs that are valued as much or more than SPPI...

    SPPI's trajectory is up... nothing you and I can do about it... I love the fact that the current short interest is neck deep..... these are the kinds that get strangled in this market.. do your research... but some never learn!

    What do the following statistics mean in light of the drop of volume?? Come on... THINK!

    Settlement Date Short Interest Avg Daily Share Volume Days To Cover
    7/31/2014 15,002,718 784,434 19.125533

    OK,... here's a hint: What happens at a crowded night club and someone yells..... "FIRE!!" ???

  • markbuti by markbuti Aug 18, 2014 9:54 PM Flag

    How,.. especially biotech... I take a position in a stock and there's a message board dominated by a little minimum wage paid troll who is compensated to keep the negative spin top of the board... "MUST NOT LET POSITIVE MESSAGES THROUGH!!" Ok, just so happens to be stocks.toshort on this board... on other boards,.. there are 500 paid aliases.... all compliments of the "New Economy...." "Change you can believe in"..... LOL!

    So why did I take a 57k share position in SPPI?? They have REAL marketable products... producing REAL revenues.... with a REAL pipeline... to address REAL, UNMET medical needs....

    SPPI reminds me of the "Rodney Dangerfield" of biotechs.... i.e. "I get no respect"... that's perfectly fine by me... I pay attention to what's in hand.. as well as,... what's in the bush..... I've followed SPPI for the last several years.. even traded it in the past... What appeals to me??

    1.) obviously their growing suite of approved products
    2.) their ability to expand the label
    3.) their pipeline
    4.) blockbuster candidates
    5.) the 18%+ SHORT interest... definitely a plus
    6.) the hatred and handwringing...
    7.) an established institutional interest
    8.) the manipulation...
    9.) the current market cap.... $500M? Perfect!
    10.) stock.toshort is bashing it.....

    Have I missed any?? ;-)

    are you referring to yourself?

  • Dude,.. Your posts have been getting really lame... in light of the facts! Do you get paid by the post... or are you increasingly underwater... I just picked up 57,322 shares in the past few days and can double this position... I don't pay attention to your incessant yapping.... rather I pay attention to fundamentals and technicals... and right now SPPI looks to be on a secular bull run... Didn't you get the memo of the latest earnings release... Hate to see you have to sell the ATV with monster wheel to finance your kid's seasons tickets to Nascar.... better cover...

    I've acquired 30,242 shares in the last several days... just getting started!

  • markbuti markbuti Aug 14, 2014 12:41 PM Flag

    Thanks for the feedback! Ready set... go!

  • Been watching SPPI for past couple of years... lots of loathing of mgmt.... shorts definitely play a role on this board and other social media sites... wanting to control the message... I've invested small amounts in the past.. but for short amounts of time.. i.e. it was about the trade.. no conviction...

    More recently, things have gotten more interesting... everyone's paradigm is different depending what their investment objectives are,.. what types of companies they've invested in the past,... changes in a company's performance, etc.

    The past couple of days I've "dipped my toe in the water"... picking up 22,000 shares around $8. Expecting some of the short interest to take note of the Aug 7-13 rise and make another attempt to bring it down... Currently sitting on cash in multiple accounts... will be watching for a bargain to pick up more shares...

    It's amazing that with all of the #$%$ people have been saying about SPPI management,... the company is selling product and increasing it's sales... broadening its pipeline... etc. and for a $500M company.. this is pretty interesting... Contrast that with ICPT... a $6B company with no revenues... (Don't bother me with the apples and oranges lecture.....)... in a major downturn.. it will be the companies producing revenues and income that will be shielded from meltdown... vs. the "change you can believe in" types....
