    If Woodford had purchased shares on the open market, even at today's low low price, he would have driven the stock price way way over $5.79. He purchased 10x the number of shares (over 4.3 million shares) of today's volume. He knows that, and by purchasing unregistered shares, he would be able to get $25 million in shares at a bargain price.

    Yeah, PPS is difficult to determine. It's been all over the place. But what hasn't wavered is the data and the progress the company is making toward getting DCVax-L and DCVax-Direct to market. MDA and UCLA on board, Woodford on board, manufacturing ramping up, start of P2 for Direct any day now, HE pricing for L any day now, complete P1 results for Direct in Q1 2015, first interim for L in March-May 2015, halt at first interim or completion of P3 in Sept 2015. All of this is looking very encouraging.

    I'm long with a lot of shares (over 166k @ $5.23). I will probably sell a little bit to bank some profits at the end of 2015 and will be holding the rest long unless the data shows DCVax doesn't work.

    I suppose if you are short on IGXT, then yes, this halt is very nerve-wracking. You can't cover until shares can be traded. Sorry for you. Given the last audio presentation, Horst stated that the terms of the litigation are very positive for IGXT. You'd know that if you bothered to listen. OTOH, maybe you did and are just trying to stir up uncertainty.

  • Just got off the phone with MerrillEdge. They called me to let me know that it's very difficult for them to get my limit order on 166000 shares out. They first suggested that I break up the order into 10000 share lots and then put in 17 separate sell orders -- yeah, as if I'm going to do that. He also suggested that I not put such a high limit, but I told him I wouldn't put it below $150. The guy I spoke with said even if I put a limit sell order on my shares, that doesn't necessarily mean they can't be lent out. I then asked him to send me an email to confirm that assertion. We'll see. After 20 minutes of him researching, I decided to open a cash account where my shares cannot be loaned. I will be moving all my NWBO shares out of my margin account to a cash account on Monday when the account becomes active.

    I hear ya turtle. I had this guy on ignore awhile back because of the bashing, but now he's bullish? I'm sure once the stock jumps, he'll be back to bashing and shorting.

    While anticipating the next PR, I found some amusing anagrams for Adam Feuerstein:
    Animated Refuse
    A Meanie FUDster

    And if incarcerated,
    Inmate Used Fear

    Happy Halloween Longs.

    I found some contacts at her school, Mount St. Joseph University. I emailed her coach Dan Benjamin and the athletic director Steve Radcliffe.

    One more thing, I'm still buying more shares (I have an open buy order right now). I don't care if you consider this pumping because I'd rather be supportive of a company trying to do good for cancer patients than a short only looking to line his pockets with $$$.

  • These 2 women have been in the news a lot lately. I've emailed both through their contact links and provided them with information on DCVax-L in Germany. Lauren has DIPG (Diffuse Intrinsic Pontine Glioma). Brittany has GBM and is planning to end her life on November 1, 2014. I can't believe these 2 seem to have lost all hope. While I respect Britanny's decision to control her own life, I feel she is making this decision without the knowledge and hope of DCVax-L. I hope she sees my email and considers the treatment. What harm can it do? I'm sure all the attention she is getting, she will be able to have this entire treatment and travel expenses paid for by well wishers. Same goes for Lauren.

    So, if you think AF and the shorts don't matter, well they do when it comes to people searching for a treatment.

    BTW, my aunt just got back from MD Anderson. She is going to have chemo after being told by her first doctor that she only had weeks to live. MDA told her otherwise and she now has hope. After chemo, the plan is to ideally operate on what she was told was inoperable. Maybe she'll be able to get into the DCVax-Direct trial in December if they cannot get all the cancer.

    And with German universal health care, why would a glioma brain cancer patient not want a potential life extending non-toxic vaccine that has no negative side effects? German citizens are very fortunate in this regard. Today is a good day for ALL glioma brain cancer patients.

    I'm not a pumper, but I am long. I just had a family member diagnosed with inoperable ovarian/stomach/intestine cancer. She is not in a position to travel far or wait until December for the p2 of DCVax-Direct (she may not even qualify for the trial). We are in contact with MD Anderson and will hopefully get her the best available treatment.

    The share price for NWBO is cheap IMO, and I have been buying more. I currently have almost 160000 shares. I've said this before, I won't be selling anytime soon unless the data shows that the therapy does not work. We are far from that. In fact, I believe the existing DATA (not the FUD-mongering) is pointing towards a very innovative non-toxic therapy that is demonstrating unprecedented EFFICACY.

    I have a hard time understanding negative short FUDsters that only want to advance their pocketbook at the expense of patients. To hear about patients shying away from ANY therapy because of unsubstantiated FUD frankly #$%$ me off. I may not be here as often as most, but I do check the board every now and then. Holding my long shares and accumulating more in the coming weeks. GL to all cancer patients.

    A high-frequency trader was indicted for “spoofing” -- placing and immediate canceling orders as a way to manipulate commodities markets -- in what the U.S. Justice Department says is the first criminal case of its kind.

    Michael Coscia, 52, of Rumson, New Jersey, the principal of Panther Energy Trading LLC, was indicted by a federal grand jury in Chicago and charged with six counts of commodities fraud and six of spoofing. He’s accused of illegally reaping almost $1.6 million as a result of orders placed through CME Group Inc. (CME) and European futures markets in 2011.

    Coscia last year settled civil claims by the U.S Commodity Futures Trading Commission by paying a $2.8 million fine and consenting to a one-year trading ban.

    The anti-spoofing statute is part of the 2010 Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act. Some trading firms have found the definition too vague and pressed CME to be more specific, two people familiar with the matter said last month.

    Coscia’s indictment was returned by a grand jury yesterday and announced today by the office of U.S. Attorney Zachary Fardon in Chicago. Each spoofing count carries a maximum sentence of 10 years in prison and a fine of as much as $1 million. Each commodities-fraud charge is punishable by as long as 25 years in prison and a $250,000 fine.

    Coscia’s attorney, Richard Reibman, said in an e-mailed statement he was reviewing the indictment and that it would be “premature” to comment on it. Coscia’s arraignment isn’t yet scheduled.

    Spoofing Profit

    It’s against the law to spoof, or post requests to buy or sell futures, stocks and other products in financial markets without intending to actually follow through on those orders.

    Spoofers try to make money by feigning interest in trading at a certain price,

    I know AF has been critical of ATHX, NBS, and GALE. Any others? He was sort of bullish on SRPT awhile ago, but he's an opportunist and I wouldn't be surprised if he'd turn on any small biotech.

    RESPONSE from Steven Pearlstein, of Washingtn Post about Fraud.stain and willingness to help.

    Thanks for your note. I don't generally write multiple columns about the
    same subject. I'm sure Mr. Feuerstein has done this with other companies. This
    one just happened to be current and happens to be located in the Washington
    region. But if you know of examples where AF has done a different sort of
    thing, then give me a hint.

    In 2006, Hiltzik was suspended without pay from the LA Times for ***sockpuppeting on his blog "The Golden State". Hiltzik admitted to posting under false names on multiple sites, using the pseudonym "Mikekoshi" to criticize Hugh Hewitt and L.A. prosecutor Patrick Frey.

    yes, you are right. anyway, i just put a new gtc limit sell so I hope my shares were loaned out and are being recalled.

  • Not sure when this happened as I don't check my account that often. I had a gtc limit sell order open for 156000 shares in my Merrill margin account. I checked it today and it was no longer open. Kind of questionable as I would think they'd call me to confirm since they called me when I placed the order. Anyway, I just placed a new gtc limit sell order. If you have a margin account and have a gtc order on it, you might want to make sure it's still open. Apparently your brokerage can cancel the order and not tell you.
