Woodford Investment Management LLP is an institution that manages several funds, one of which is the Woodford Income Fund and, yes, a small portion of it can be invested in special situations
well, you have departed from your usual gratuitous, pseudo-intellectual banter and actually posted some utter nonsense. you ought to just keep your meandering armchair observations to yourself...
"I think the weak hands were flushed out of this stock long ago. That's why the volume is only 1 million shares or so."
have to disagree. if the weak hands were gone, the stock would have moved higher on one million shares which is far above average for NWBO
"you should never be so confident of your investing thesis that you are not willing to take part of your winnings off the table rather than letting it ride"
and yet, you intend to hold all your shares so as not to reduce your chances going forward
"for people who already have lots of wealth, the math is a bit different"
if you ever get there, you will realize the fallacy of that statement
the Woodford Investment Management LLP has a number of funds, one of which is the Woodford Equity Income Fund
the 27k difference indicates that one of their other funds also has some NWBO shares
looks like you sold out too quick, flipper, and now you have the chutzpah to think you can talk it down on a message board just like you were hyping it on other boards when you still had it. live and learn, lulu, live and learn...
"Some other stocks are up more than 3% today

Check out NWBO now, still moving higher now.
Huge upside long term.
Up more than 3% today."
just saw it at lulugacydotcom in their report on the huge increase in call volume for NWBO yesterday
looks like NWBO was $6.20 when you posted, so the shorts are already down almost $15 million
and considering the prices when they opened their short positions, some of them have already lost everything unless they have a bunch of calls for insurance -- but they cannot repeat that process with new short positions because call options have become too expensive
but not a peep from any of the services that specializing in highlighting dramatic changes in option activity for their clients?
apparently that was as of December 22nd and it is known that he has bought more since
with all the shares held by Woodford, Toucan, Cognate, and Linda this is beginning to look like Armageddon for the shorts with just a whiff of a rumor of minor news
imagine what could happen if reimbursement agreements or trials results are announced
SEC should not allow shares to be loaned for shorting
if someone wants to benefit from a stock going down, or hedge for some reason, they can buy puts
at a minimum, a broker should not be allowed to loan shares without the shareholders specific permission for a specific period of time, and the broker should not be allowed to compensate the shareholder in any way
but maybe it dropped a million shares today
if the price goes much higher, there should be a lot more shorts looking to get out
or maybe just a few folks who really know something and have money to invest
that was way above average volume today

I still say that shorts NEVER lose!!
Shorts ALWAYS win or Shorts NEVER lose, same thing.
Now you know so don't forget that.
just don't know
finished the day with over 22,000 April 7 calls traded
no series around it is getting even a fraction of that attention
speaking of which shouldn't that amount of volume send up flags for the various services that send out alerts to their option-tracking clients? don't they usually try to interpret what is going on?
i've done a lot of options with NWBO, but never seen anything like what is going on with these 7's since the reset finished on the 15th so i keep thinking it is tied to that
btw, i've got a bunch of April 5 calls and they have been trading with a negative premium while these 7's are setting records, so i'm just gradually exercising them and then selling the stock
has to be something special about those 7's that thousands can so easily trade in a day
