    Thanks Jackie---you too. It's nice to have time, science, an leadership on our side while the shorts have none of those.

  • and is buying now will be VERY HAPPY as the stock moves back up, more good or great news comes out, and the stock rises to the $20's within the next 6-12 months----with a market cap that will STILL be under $500 million. This is a company whose technology and patent portfolio will be worth BILLIONS to an eventual acquirer.

    You're nuts and obviously don't follow or understand the company at all. They had to TURN AWAY cancer centers that wanted to get into collaboration with their testing platform and their precision and detection has been shown in clinical studies and data to be MORE ACCURATE than tissue biopsy and blood tests. And they are expanding into more types of cancers and mutations at a very rapid pace. That's why 3 firms INCREASED their price targets with 2 of them currently at $11 and $13-----and those will be going up.

    If you think that the shorts are going to be holding their positions once the stock starts rising and it crosses above $4 as the anticipatory rally really gets going----you are the moron. Shorts that are in the stock now are looking for 10, 20. or 30 cents. Do you realize how much they will ALL be in the hole when the stock gets above $4 and then $5 and higher? As a long, I have the luxury of a comfortable time horizon allowing for all of the company developments and advancements to occur---which have NOT occurred--------YET. When the WM results come in and they are positive, the stock will NEVER be anywhere near this level again. Then what do ALL of the shorts do that shorted at $3.75 or $3.50 do? The answer is-----they already will have covered and helped to drive the stock price up even higher and enhance the rally. Either that r they will have held and be down thousands or hundreds of thousands with NO CHANCE to recover. And when those positive results come in you will instantly see 3 or 4 more firms jumping into the stock with MUCH higher price targets. The short play here is extremely limited, while the long play is limitless!

    Dec 31 2014. IDRA closes at 4.41

    So, without knowing it, you just told us what we already knew---that the stock is down because the shorts are driving it down-----for now. There are only so many shares to short, and as institutions add more to their holdings those available shares disappear. 5 months before critical trial results is still a little to soon for that run up to begin----but it will soon. And we will have run up after run up with all of the compounds that will regularly be announcing results in the upcoming 6-24 months. And each time we receive positive results the stock price will increase accordingly----50, 100, 200% or more. Every developmental biotech starts this way. This is when you have the opportunity to set yourself up for tremendous gains, and with one of the deepest pipelines in ANY small cap biotech the odds are definitely in the longs favor-----in the long term. GET IN----AVERAGE DOWN if you can---but BE IN when the run begins!

    And what has happened in the first half vs what we have coming up in the second half? Just look back to last year to see what we can expect as we get closer to the 8400 results with WM. The stock rose last year in anticipation of the psoriasis results, and the WM results are worth 50 times more due to all of the oncology applications and the much higher value of that market. And that is only one of the 5 compounds that will be in trials over the next 12 months. I personally know 2 people that passed away from melanoma, and the MD Anderson trial is also critical. Those results will be available very quickly once the trial begins. Like I have said----NOW is the time to get in or accumulate. Biotechs do NOT behave like industrials or established companies with revenue streams. They can double or triple literally in one day----and then it makes no difference whether the stock is up or down 50 cents or a dollar from where you bought or your average cost-----just how many shares you OWN.

  • and this is all unrelated shenanigans to allow either funds or some other big boys a chance to buy in at a much better price than a week or 2 ago. This is NOT because people want out---it is because someone wants IN! If it was a BUY and you wanted to own it at $11, or $12-----then what's NOT to love at $9?? You have to figure that this company will be valued AT LEAST at $500 million within 6-12 months and right now the market cap has dropped under $200 million. Looking at a 150% move higher from here, which translates to a stock price of roughly $22-$24 in less than 12 months.

    In the end we will all win---all of the longs that is. You got very lucky fruit salad considering the JP Morgan call. You have to admit that the selling is basically being done by the shorts-----and they are getting overstretched. Why else would you have bought back in here?

    If you look at level 2, I should have a block of 70,000 shares sitting at $20.

    I know that I am allowed to short in my TD Ameritrade SEP, but I never have and never will.

    Sentiment: Strong Buy

  • shares for sale pops up trying to throw up a road block. How can they not realize that they are doing all of this to squeeze a few cents out of this stock. The news couldn't be any better, everything is progressing on schedule, the collaboration with MD Anderson could not be any more impressive, AND JP Morgan now has an analyst covering the stock who cam out with a price target of $6 when the stock was $3.65----so that alone tells you that this is ALL short action-----and they are really stretching the limits of what they can accomplish. One more positive development, one more analyst with a buy and higher price target, one positive surprise and the stock rockets and the shorts scramble for cover. No matter. Positive results for 8400 send the stock into double digits proving the value of the TLR therapy in cancer across a broad range of diseases-----and leading into that the stock will be much higher than it is now. If you're not selling, than you're not losing anything other than on paper---temporarily. We weathered a drop into the $2's and many have done very well using that drop as a buying or accumulating opportunity. So the shorts can't "borrow" my shares I have a $20 sell order in that is good til cancelled making my shares unavailable for shorts. TD Ameritrade lets me do that. We could lock up millions of shares if we all did that. Second half begins next week!

    It's got to be getting real close. When they cover and realize there is little more to gain on the downside this will be back above $4 in no time!

    Because this is a $500 million market cap stock selling at a $200 million market cap price. I LIKE that equation and I LIKE this discount of 40% from the high. I have made plenty of money and done very well looking for exactly situations like this to increase positions, both to strengthen a core position or for possible trade later. I LOVE TROV, and I love buying shares here rather than having to worry about buying them at $11 or $12 or $13 now. It WILL be back there again----and sooner rather than later.

    Sentiment: Strong Buy

  • doing that is just lies and garbage. The stock dropped because shorts decided to come in and see if they could bring the price down. That along with many stops tripping is what created the vacuum, hence the $9 stock price. So now the market cap is a ridiculously LOW $200 million---even below Janney's call and now 10% below their $11 PT. This is UNDERVALUED at this level which is why I am buying here.

    I am neither. I am an investor and buy when I see opportunity. And I can't afford to lose and have NO intention of doing so in IDRA---or any stock that I own.

    Sentiment: Strong Buy

  • the shorts are getting very over extended with NO possible negative news to spark selling, and heading into the second half of the year, which begins next Wednesday we certainly will have a lot going on with IDRA and a lot to look forward to. Hopefully the 2125 trial with MD Anderson will begin enrolling within the next few weeks, the first GSO target will be announced in the second half, the company did state that it planned on having TWO combination trials occurring by the end of the year so I expect we will get an announcement of who they are going to partner with on 2055/checkpoint inhibitor and what cancer that will target. I would FLIP if the company announced a financial licensing and development partnership with 9200 with a nice upfront payment of at least $25-$50 million. That would KILL the shorts---literally KILL a few of them! Options are quite a bit higher from July on, and the market makers will likely want to lift the stock within the next couple of weeks. But that will be nothing compared to the lift we will see later on as we get closer to the 8400 results.

    Why do you think so many people on this board know about and have invested in TROV? I was recommending it on this board and the KERX board for a long time AS LOW as $3.00. And I didn't buy ALL of my shares in the $3's. I bought a few thousand following the secondary in Feb when you could buy them at the secondary price of $4.50------STILL up 100% on those. You people are all ridiculous. A stock goes down and you think everybody is going broke! THESE are the BUYING OPPORTUNITIES that make you the most money over TIME-----not in a few days---not in a few weeks-----but in TIME. ACAD----languished in the $2-$5 range for a LONG time------3 years later and STILL WITHOUT AN APPROVED DRUG it's $42. PCYC languished under $5 for a LONG time. Now with ONE approved drug the company was sold for $255. And there area countless other examples. Look at Sarepta in Duchenne's----where IDRA is headed----$32 now. ISIS with it's INFERIOR second generation GSO-----$8 BILLION market cap. And all of you idiot bashers think that this price is significant at THIS stage if IDRA's development and growth??? That's what makes everything you say completely preposterous. THIS is the time to accumulate----even if the stock moves up or down 50 cents or a dollar. At $10, $20, or more------WHO IS GOING TO CARE!

    You are exactly right. BUY when everyone seems to be selling with a growing company like this. It is ALL a scare tactic. There is nothing fundamentally different now vs a month or 2 ago. In fact, with the sales force in place the company is in an even STRONGER position. $9 is RIDICULOUSLY CHEAP for this company. Now the market cap is ONLY a miniscule $200 million-----and it's heading to $500 million. This is a glaring BLUE LIGHT SPECIAL right now.
