    If there is a potential partner out there, could they be testing Brem in a way that closely follows a typical PH III trial, but in a private, non-governmental setting? Testing in other countries may not be as stringent as in US. If being tested privately, this may take the time we're seeing here (it's been quiet for a while). Comments appreciated.

    Taxi is a Short

    I think you're call is wrong this time...Here's why: TAXI is one of the only places where a person with limited credit history or with highly extended credit can initiate a loan for medallions. The expansion of medallions and the impending squeeze of congestion hours leads to a classic demand-met-by-supply scenario for more taxis. Medallion should return to @ $15 on better earnings this quarter and expanded loan-initiations.

    Too bad he doesn't know about Brem... he's betting on a vein, aging population with his Botox play... well that same generation wants to extend their 'wild oats' as well...

    When the partnership get announced

    PTN has a decent pipeline. The partnership could be far more than just a cooperative arrangement. The real question is whether the potential partner mentioned in the CC is actually looking at taking a position in the direction of the company. If the partner purchased 10% of the company's shares (at this level it's a steal) what sort of signal would that send to shorts like JoeDoe? My answer is that short positions would expedite their exit. PTN is a definitely a long speculative position.

    Bo... I would say that my comment was all about the underlying fundamentals. The stuff I read supports a 'good story' for TAXI. Even if NYC (and others that follow suit) impose stricter congestion rules on downtown traffic, there's only one way to fill the gap for populations that despise public transportation. The cab driver will endure. TAXI is a LONG! Good luck to all longs!!!

    THE CHARTS JUST CHANGED DIRECTION TO THE UPSIDE

    Phil, what needs to happen is that Spana has to announce who his European fiancee is... Then he needs to tell us when PH III will start and end. That needs to happen and that's when the stock will leave the shorts still reading their counterfeit tea leaves.

    The fundamentals have been on the up side for 2 months... The question is whether the EU will approve Brem and if so, will AZN or ABT pick up a cheap new pipeline...

    Trading at P/E of 11, issuing a dividend of 7%... What bank offers this level of value to the average investor? NONE! Taxi is a money-printing investment opportunity. Taxi is a LONG!!!

    Related commentary--Those who short this stock are really buying small puts at discounted pricing to move the share price lower. The market is rigged and needs to be fixed so that small lots are no longer acceptable as market makers. The dollar cost average process will be here soon enough and will wipe out the naked shorts that loiter this stock's "trading pit."

    Is it really worth owning individual stocks any more? Small bearish traders move the price of a stock with small blocks. It's time that the market shift to the dollar-cost-average model of pricing shares so that small blocks do not set the price of a stock. NOTHING in the news dictates the precipitous fall in price... Where are the fundamentals for this short? From everything I've read, there's no reason for PTN to be at this level. The impending announcement of a European partner will move the stock up another forty to fifty pennies easily. So don't fall for the Joe Doe's of the world.... PTN is movin' on up!!

    They can complain all they want. The bicycle sharing program and Uber have been cutting into cab driver income for a while now. But driving a cab is the path to the "American Dream" for many immigrant families. They need to get a loan and banks are not an option. When cabs fail mechanically, cab companies can potentially get a loan with TAXI on perhaps more favorable terms than a bank. The short call is short-sighted. With tourist season moving into full swing, cabs will be busier than ever this summer in NYC. I would cover the short position fast as TAXI pulls out to its next move to $15 a share.

    Google's new campaign to distribute Glass is a precursor to its release. IMO Glass will have subscription service for users and will cut purchase price like model phone companies use. Glass will be huge; shorts are short-sighted.

    Listening to the shorts and their blah, blah blah is only a ruse... they're manipulating the small investor into panic mode and reducing the price for accumulation. When Glass hits the stores this Christmas, you'll be thanking your lucky stars that you held onto HIMX!

    Probably not a great idea. Two Harbors had decent earnings and is a steady state player in MREIT space. Obviously there are as many lesser-informed investors are there are under-informed voters.
