Not Rob but I've got a few thoughts though Rob says it best . Rob did post on IV :
OT - Pete Najarian just recommended ZIOP as final trade on Fast Money Halftime - huge Feb call volume mentioned MD Anderson deal eom
OT - Kirk has told all ZIOP investors everything they need to know...why shorts & some longs don't believe this man with his track record at Scios. New River, Clinical Data is the real head scratcher...
Everything I posted about since oct is happening .Kirk told u they just passed ALL in CAR T and no one believes him just like they didn't when he said "significant transactions underway" in November (then delivered the blockbuster CAR T deal with the biggest cancer clinic in the world) and more announcements in "days weeks months" this month.
Soon we get first data (Dr Cooper said its coming and they will be VERY TRANSPARENT) that he saw that makes him think he is WAY ahead of all others including JUNO and KITE and why he anyone who puts their rank speculation against his informed knowledgeable judgement will get what they deserve. XON MDA are about to change medicine and Wall Street soon will have to answer the question "what is ownership of every CAR T and every other human cancer drug XON will make worth" the answer could be staggering.
and another buy:
On Tuesday, Catalyst Pharmaceutical Partners (CPRX)’s EVP, Chief Commercial Officer, David D. Muth, made a $62,074 purchase of CPRX, buying 21,000 shares at a cost of $2.96 each. Catalyst Pharmaceutical Partners is trading up about 5.9% on the day Friday. Before this latest buy, Muth made one other buy in the past twelve months, purchasing $26,500 shares at a cost of $2.65 a piece.
That piece came out last week the day before streetsweeper did their rag.
Like I said......watch for one other snake to pile on ....Citron Research run by Andrew Left
Disagree. The price drop was 'created' by a rag producing a bear raid. They inform their members what and when to short ... then publish a rag story. Those of us in the know scooped up discounted shares driving the price back up. Those who are not familiar with these clowns panicked and sold. That's their 'game'. If you have L2 you would have noticed massive buying of large blocks.
They are now short and will continue to attempt to hammer the price down in order to make a buck.
Yesterday WhiteDiamond went after XON. Holding hands with SSweeper , the sweep then put out their piece
Watch for the new player to enter the room. His name will be Andrew Left of Citron Research.
They make you think they are compelling. That's a part of attack plan. Lol, they tell subscribers ahead of time what and when to short.....then they print a 'story'.
It's really a twisted 'yarn'.
Want to view what SSweeper and Citron orchestrated on QCOR ? Go look up the past chart of QCOR. They drove the price down near 20 bucks........then covered their rears and all but disappeared. Oh, Citron continued to post junk since they still had more covering to do.They were relentless.
But wait, there's more. .....
QCOR recovered and was bought out by MNK for a nice premium (90+).
Yah, that was a slick move to play their own short trade out.
Lol, we know how to read . Been doing that for quite some time. You needed to read prior statements to get a 'feel' for what was coming. Not rocket science .
Yes, folks feel sooooooo bad that it's reflected in the price action and volume.
Thanks for the laugh
yep,they stole your shares in early December.
Congrats to those longs and believers.....I am a long term / time holder of many shares
Welcome aboard ! Did not know you were in ZIOP. Noticed recently that MHO is invested here as well. Me, I've been in this a long while (so long I can't recall) in numerous accounts (family and friends). When ZIOP hit the skids way back when , I started a bunch of new positions in the 2.08 range ........ and have held.
GL to you
Agree with 5-z. Seems to me that CPRX is in a higher trading range and you'd not see 2.70 IMO.
What made you buy 1400 shares as a new investor ? Not for nothing but next time start with the premise that any stock you buy will go down after you buy in. Add on the dips if you like the story/stock then hang in there.
I am overloaded with tech and bios . Got heavy positions in bios over 5-6 years ago when no one wanted them. I still add to those I like but it brings my base cost up. I've had bio wrecks but not as many as one would expect.
Hang in there . I'm looking for a much higher premium than where you got it.
Oh yeah, and the other thing that will happen is the day you sell CPRX will go up. Lol, tis the way it is many times.
Will Kirk mix and mingle ?
' Randal J. Kirk, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Intrexon, will present at the J.P. Morgan Healthcare Conference on Wednesday, January 14th, at 8:30 a.m. Pacific Standard Time at the Westin St. Francis in San Francisco.'
Lol, you have to know when the thieves are knocking at the door. ZIOP has been in my portfolio for many a moon. I have incredible patience and pay attention to news that's public knowledge . Not saying that I don't know those in the 'know' at times ....but you need to let things cook no matter how dicey it gets.
Vin, thanks for the nod.
Happy holidays to you and yours
