    nothingbut, you remind me of the scarecrow in the Wizard of Oz.... "If I only had a brain.." Sing It,.. wear your badge of pride.....

    "I could while away the hours
    Conferrin' with the flowers,
    Consulting with the rain;
    And my head I'd be a scratchin'
    While my thoughts are busy hatchin'
    If I only had a brain"

    They need to learn some new "life skills"...

    e.g. "Would like to supersize that Big Mac with 40 oz. Coke?"
    "Welcome to Wal-Mart!"
    "Barney XXII is playing down in theater 6"

    Zika Funding Soon, Between 1 and 2 Billion

    LOL! What does only $200M out of $1.1B for vaccines say about bureaucracy? JK... sort of.... !

  • markbuti markbuti May 11, 2016 4:07 PM Flag

    How's that short position working out for you?? The answer is apparent in the tone of your post...

    It's exciting every time INO reports out positive results... the stock price increases,... and shorts are repeatedly taken to the woodshed!! RIP!

  • The story we're reading in the news... e.g. President asking for $1.9B funding,.. the GOP controlled congress dragging their feet for approvals...

    Maybe it's something as simple as politics... And BTW, before I go any further,.. I've historically *always* voted Republican (although this election will be tough...)..... So,.. I'm not a Dem out to bash the GOP...

    Let's start with, I believe some very realistic proofs... *Big* Bio is super well connected with Congress... Agree / Disagree? I'm pretty sure that the CEO's have *direct* access to key congressional leaders.. and can pick up the phone any day.. and it's personally answered.... That said...

    Now picture yourself as a Big Bio CEO,.. whose company was caught totally flat footed by the Zika epidemic... and realizes the significant revenues that can be gained... Are you starting to follow my logic? It's quite plausible that the big bio CEO says.. "we need to delay this funding for 3 - 6 months until we can demonstrate that we have a vaccine through pre-clinicals... i.e. stall, stall, stall,..... we want our piece of the pie..... "

    He picks up the phone (actually his personal aide does) and calls his golfing buddy at Congress,... etc... and says "Bob,.. here's the deal... we need a few months to get prepped with a vaccine we know will be a home run for the American,.. as well as the world... it would serve our country best if we weren't hasty to fund risky initiatives, by unproven companies.... By the way,.. how is Jane doing? That was quite a bash we had the other night... looking forward to you and Jane attending our granddaughter's christening...."

    A stretch of the imagination?? What happens in Washington D.C. makes Las Vegas look like a convent!

    I'm pretty sure there's much more than meets the eye in Washington / Big Bio politics..... Enjoy your weekend!

    In the absence of news,.. technical analysis has a lot of merits... however,.. technicals will follow fundamentals (reflected by newsworthy developments)... not vice versa... i.e. in absence of news,... the price will go up,.. and it may go down... I don't pay too much attention to it.

    I don't know how many of the (im)posters behind the id's such as druggy25, hugochazez, puko, etc. etc. can look at themselves in the mirror when they get up every morning... essentially they have to say "well it's another day... I have to spin webs of lies and deceit.... I specialize in misinformation..." No moral scruples...

    Akin to these Fudsters,.. are the swing / day traders that change their sentiment and posts faster than their underwear... i.e. the end (their gain) justifies their means (their lies)... pretty pathetic.

    Fortunately,.. most investors can see through their charades...

    AF is behind the curve because he doesn't understand the science.... He's not an idiot, but apparently purchased and paid for by the hedge funds... His actions and timing speak louder than words...

    He, like his mentor,. has a super huge ego... Nice kleyn eyngl ... but his mama probably isn't proud... I could be wrong! No redemption here!

    I plan to write a Seeking Alpha article... on how "Dr. Joseph Kim serves humble pie to the pundits..." Waiting for some more data-points... will call out AF, the dude from Fierce Biotech, Sean Williams, etc. the list goes on for a while... a public shaming is good for their souls... not necessarily mine.

    ... Be on notice.... I'm coming for you girls...

    Alex, I agree.. a $1B valuation is a conservative estimate... but that could be ratcheted up very quickly based on Zika and existing partnership announcements...

    One comparison data point is NVAX which I've invested in the past... as I recall they have two ph III trials for RSV (one in adults, one in infants).. NVAX is valued at $1.5B... Inovio's pipeline is huge compared to NVAX,.. but earlier stage...

    Years ago, I commented that of the two companies, in terms of their science, Inovio was the clear winner... and Inovio has since delivered further value drivers that I frankly didn't think was possible... One could ask the question,... if Inovio would have focused very narrowly, like NVAX, would they have been further along in terms of their market cap valuation??

    My response, in terms of valuation,.. maybe. But, it appears that Inovio has been doing a lot to lock up the intellectual property (via the broad patent estate) on multiple infectious diseases and oncology from a synthetic DNA vaccine perspective...

    Perhaps all of us should keep the following statement in mind... written approximately 970 BC:

    "I have observed something else under the sun. The fastest runner doesn't always win the race, and the strongest warrior doesn't always win the battle. The wise sometimes go hungry, and the skillful are not necessarily wealthy. And those who are educated don't always lead successful lives. It is all decided by chance, by being in the right place at the right time."

    The floor support is rising on INO pps

    markbuti markbuti Apr 1, 2016 5:23 PM Flag

    Since this original post predicting a near term 20% increase, INO stock has moved from $8.26 -- $9.25..... +12% in only 3 trading days..... (even I'm right once in a while)... We're not even close to where the stock should (and likely soon to) be.... but we're correcting.... price / technicals is following fundamentals.... This is an example of "the trend is your friend..." a significant short interest still,... very bullish and growing sentiment,... significant catalysts breaking loose on multiple fronts... I'm expecting a continued tear (is in steroids)... but the shorts won't go gently into that good night...

    Wild men who caught and sang the sun in flight,
    And learn, too late, they grieve it on its way,
    Do not go gentle into that good night.

    Grave men, near death, who see with blinding sight
    Blind eyes could blaze like meteors and be gay,
    Rage, rage against the dying of the light.

    No More Cheap Shares

    by patcarr832 Apr 1, 2016 10:19 AM
    markbuti markbuti Apr 1, 2016 12:37 PM Flag

    Pat - referencing the old saying "hindsight is 20/20"... I'm guessing in less than a year from now many people will be kicking themselves for having not bought in the $9 - 10 range...

    I've kept my shares from the climb to the current share price because my conviction is that we haven't even begun to reach the fair valuation price... At $20/shr,... given Inovio's significant progress in the last year alone,... this will probably be closer to where the company should be valued... even with no approved products....

    Therefore,.. $9 - 10 will be proven to be cheap shares.....
