it means it's seeing demand by oncologists to prescribe it in combination with other drugs or try for other cancers beside MF OR Janssen is convinced that it will most probably work for other than MF cancer. All in all, it's confirmation of the usefulness of IMET as seen by none other than folks at Janssen. The question still remains if the FDA approves it or not. My feeling is that Janssen's request must carry a lot of weight at the FDA than if it was by the Geron management. Certainly a positive and encouraging development.
Those who say that it had nothing new are full of #$%$ (please read "S" for "C" because Yahoo doesn't like the use of certain words)!! The diversification mentioned in the first 10 minutes is a new plan that may consider acquisition of products and companies. I am not sure how the company will do it!! The details on the further (translational) studies of IMET are new. And, more definitive results and scientific explanation of working of IMET with progenitor cells are new. A direct shot on Jakafi inhibitors is also new!! Apparently, in my view, the presentation was designed to attract institutional investors who have staff looking for solid/technical details before investing, and certainly not for day traders and hedgies. I request longs to "stay tuned".
Cabeman, I too agree with Rattlebug. Your post is the kind, I hope, fills up this board. Unfortunately, while providing a board like this, Yahoo is only looking after selling commercials and, hence, it has been a frustration to see this board getting swarmed by traders and manipulators who are least interested in knowing what IMET's potential is and how cure for deadly cancers is developing. Well, it's world crazy for money and nothing else - a real frustration for those who want to do something constructive. Thanks for a dose of sweet wine in an ocean of poison!!
that this board is heavily infested by shorts and agents of competing companies whose only intent is to spread bloated and/or distorted negative stories about Ocata. Just keep in mind that Ocata has successfully developed breakthrough products after years of efforts and is sitting on valuable patents that, when licensed, will multiply your investment several folds, guaranteed!! The scare notion spread by vested interests is just hogwash.
without any real understanding!! These idiots claim that they know it better than Wotton!! Don't listen to these manipulators because they deliberately mislead you to drag the SP down. They were telling you that Wotton was going to announce an offering during the CC to-day - a pure lie!! These crooks do not hesitate to lie to you just hoping you are all fools!! This board is full of such crooks and just stay away from it and go by facts through the company website and other reliable sources. If these idiots were right about the offering, why didn't the Piper Jaffrey analyst didn't pose that question to Wotton?!!! He wasn't an idiot like these crooks!!
BP, thanks for speaking for a lot of longs like me and complimenting Hoosier. I second everything you stated above. Couldn't have done better!
than Geron? OR do they have more faith in OPC1 than IMET? Weird WS!! Lesson: Current-day WS doesn't have any sense of real value; it is just a casino and not a security market, where gambling principles take precedence real value of companies. This is a major deterioration of the market than it was just 30 years ago. Computers have made humans more greedy for money and made him short-sighted. God help them from pain when they die poor while still craving for more money!! What a world!! From heaven to hell!!!!
The first and foremost was a direct and measured but bold attempt to bring down Jakafi through comparison with IMET and a clearcut statement that IMET will do what Jakafi can not!! Also, the statement that 86% of the Jakafi users may end up in IMET treatment as no other compound so far is available that can do it!! I really liked it very much and think that Scarlett has come out of his usual rat hole.
Secondly use of "by Janssen" at several places, emphasizing that it will be Janssen now and not Geron handling the IMET work!! We knew it; but, a repeated mention like that to the WS audience was apparently meant to draw its attention to that fact.
Thirdly, the scheduled MF and MDS trials are as planned, beginning in mid 2015 and by year end 2015 - a confirmation that despite a huge planning effort required to start those multicenter trials all over the globe, it's all on schedule - meaning Janssen, Tefferi and Geron have been working very hard to begin the difficult work soon without any more delay.
All in all, it was a welcome development.
Keep, if you do not like Ocata you should be investing in or playing with an another company. There are thousands of other companies on various exchanges and, I am sure, you can find at least a few that you will like and can have trust in. You and others who keep bashing the company on this board unfairly or unreasonably must quit this board, instead of being perpetually present and try to mislead gullibles who believe what people like you post. That, in my view, is unfair and not consistent with the norms in a civilized society. Just speak your mind, but honestly and fairly. Thanks.
Those giving them downs must have been fools and suffering from worry to- day!! But, this may very well be the beginning of a brewing storm!!
You mean to say that the FDA often fails to correctly identify risks and grants license, only to blame the manufacturers of failing to fulfill the requirements? Why, in the first place, did the FDA granted the license to place t on the market?! Shouldn't the FDA too be fined to have failed? In any case, your purpose to post this two-year old matter must be that you are a short or a disgruntled and envious trader who got bitten badly!!
Whatever it really is, I can't understand the prevailing silence and lack of responsibility and openness to sincere shareholders who have remain invested in the company through its thick and thin. Getting millions of dollars in compensation for a CEO who cares least for shareholder inquisitiveness is totally unfair and undeserving. Seeking refuge among WS crooks is not the quality of an able and classy CEOS, especially if shareholder patience and perseverance has brought about a breakthrough product. neither Huh nor Scarlett has been with the company through its thick and thin and that this insensitive board must comprehend.
Ever since Merrill Lynch is involved in the offering, the SP is under manipulation. Also, it's bloody day traders and hedgies who know that the trial is being delayed; but IMET is sure to succeed, are trading in and out to make their living. That is what the MM wants so that it can make money!! It's all a bloody game by those who want to make their living without sweating - typical of all gamblers. I will not worry and stay put with my investment and take a vacation because vermin and mon...keys will keep hoping in and out and they have sympathizers all over the current-day corrupt unlawful Wall Street. These insects are there to stay and you have to take that as a fact. A lot of them reside on this board and act like they are a knowledgeable lot!!
Look at the two blindly yet consistently idiotic bashers or dedicated shorts marking downthumbs !! These worms blindly do it, whether the post is good or bad!!! Nuts!!!!
Finally, the so-called Wall Street gurus have started noticing the real value of Geron OR have they begun pushing it after accumulating cheaply?!! These dogs will never let such small companies do their business without troubles. I am used to Wall street jerks doing perpetual manipulation and have been ignoring what they say and do my own study if a company is worth investing in. I have concluded long back that Geron has valuable patents and is sitting on golden eggs. This idiot from Zacks who is pushing this stock plainly because its balance sheet is in plus territory is not telling me anything new!!!
Hedge funds, shorts and other day traders are always waiting for any news to jack up SP only to drag it down so that they can make their living through swings in the SP. This is their routine practice. These are the people who do not want to do something constructive in life and live with dreams of making more and more money without sweating. I consider them a social or a moral cancer that is growing!!
That's exactly what I had in mind: With OPC1 yet to start, the AST SP has doubled while despite glorious success of IMET in getting the first ever CRs and PRs Geron SP is still struggling to go over $4!! The market cap as mentioned by the "nut" below is not the point of my questioning!! He needs to sharpen his intelligence (if he has enough!) t to comprehend what I meant!!
The holders of 25M shorts!! It can't be just retail traders. It has to be mostly institutional hedgies and they are fighting tooth-and-nail while manipulating retail traders like mon....keys with MM cooperation!! It's all a quick-money-making scheme. This has become a standard practice in the current-day WS world where greedy portfolio managers are hired and paid handsomely, who continually manipulate selected stocks to make quick bucks. And, a lot of them succeed, some get bored doing so and retire with hefty gains. Thanks to the cooperating SEC and the Congress!! WS must be the most corrupt place in our country!!
