Those who put a lot of faith in Scarlett and Huh forget that Scarlett gets compensated well and so did Huh and they do not need SP doing well. Of course, when time comes to look for more funding, they may manage to find a partner or an acquirer like they did for the stem- cell assets at throw away price and get lucrative deal for themselves. Can any retail shareholder or even a minority institutional holder stop them doing so? If you are sure it can be done, why didn't any one stop them for the lousy stem-cell deal?! Also, do not forget that a low SP can't get more undoing than a sustained high SP!! It's thus necessary to take solid steps before such a need arises to stabilize SP to a comfortably high SP. A lot of pundits posting on this board can't grasp this simple fact!! This is one reason why I call both "the bozos".
Black, you are persistently after the management on one hand while, on the other hand, End is perpetually optimistic so much so that his statements since July of Hold coming off soon have become a joke. I am just looking for all probable reasons for the persistent decline of share price and downgrading by WS handlers. To-day's drop may be partly the domino effect. But, if you compare Geron's share-price movement to-day versus that of other biotechs in similar situation, it is disgusting. There appears to be a deliberate attempt at bringing the SP down to below $2.00 and leave it there at the close whereas SP of others came up. If Geron has a BT product, and Mayo is backing it, this contempt by the WS betters is something to worry about. Sure, the management is inept but the product is a golden nugget. So....what is going on? Can anybody say with confidence that the company can do well by itself and with this management?
If big pharmas are connected to hedge funds which keep shorting shares of small biotechs whose products may threaten their market for the pharmas' products and, thereby, continually disrupt funding plans for the biotechs? I will not be!!
Please use your common sense. This year the worms started the game early, instead of usual October and have to end early! This year monkey shorts tried to beat institutional worms. The govt has to find a drug to effectively kill these worms. Until then, the worms will keep multiplying and crowd up. There are a lot of those visiting this board too!!
If you're a wise beaver, you will use strong and long sticks that are hard to steal and your dam won,t break!,
Another thing you can do is place a sell order for a high limit good for 60 days! Then, your broker can't borrow it for his use.
Oh, I know that my views are not liked by posters and visitors of this board; but, for certain important issues like this raised by a poster like you I do want to respond.
Black, this is a board where you will not be able to get any specific answer to your questions! However, I do believe that the FDA must have that issue in their mind because, for a breakthrough drug which may have potentially large international demand, manufacturing, distribution, and economic-cost production capability should be important. It's not just what Mayo finds that is important for such a product that is going to be a commercial product, it's those issues too that may be central to final licensing. Involvement of a large pharma, having international marketing and distribution capability IS a necessity for a BTD like IMET; but the two bozos don't want to give at least some idea about it to us shareholders. Perhaps, they are already discussing those aspects to their WS buddies!!
Meliorist, I do not believe that SEC is without any tools, although I do agree that our Current-day Congress seems to have forgotten that they are there to work for us, the people, and not vested interests. Perhaps this is an outcome of our money-driven system that has deeply influenced our mind and not just that of politicians. After all, our politicians are nothing but our society's reflection!
Rusty, I have lost my respect for Scarlett, and also for Huh, both of who I find too cozy to WS jerks than to sincere shareholders. I consider both to be real bozos.
Rattle bug, you took the words out of my mouth!! Political corruption and cheating are a hallmark of greed in people as long as money is the most sought after commodity of our society. Only the cunning and crooks can prosper!
Beaver, any idea how to stop this illegal game? I filled out the SEC complaint form several times in the past as and when I suspected this, even hinting @ Wall Street media for misleading, and it never apparently worked!! If we can't stop it, how do we deal with it as investors? We have no choice but to be just the monkeys to follow the market!!
Black, what if I disagree with you?!! Would you feel bad?!!! The market is primarily driven by institutional players, like MMs and hedge funds. Those posting on this board are generally retail traders and a few or so investors. Rusty may be right that "hedges manipulate .... and then to not believe they won't have flunkies posting away on public BBs to shake the Retails out...." It's still the manipulation by the institutions and not retail traders!! Retail traders are just"monkey"; they do not lead, they follow!
Anyhow, whatever it's, it's time to examine if we want to add more at this point or not. My thinking is that Imetelstat is a golden nugget held by Geron and, if the two bozos are smart enough and not in the pockets of WS thugs, they will take the SP to reach its appropriate climax sooner or later.
keep posting their ideas as if they know everything, some do that hoping to sway others thinking that others are fools and will fall for what they say, and the rest do for what they think is right and just want to share their thoughts. One thing is sure: No post on this board has affected ever which way the shares actually trade!! Then you wonder: Don't manipulating idiots ever think that they can't do that and learn not to waste their effort? Well, go ONLY by published facts, do your own independent thinking if you can, and make your own decision as to which direction you want to go. without getting swayed by either the manipulators' warnings or even punditry of self-appointed pundits trying to brainwash you!!
Yes, it's time to add more to your portfolio. The SA guy is apparently a WS paid manipulator, creating opportunity for a WS fund to add, then raise the SP by floating another article which will be positive. This game goes on and SEC doesn't have resources to catch manipulators doing regulatory violations for trading in such stocks as ACTC. They try to catch only big cats violating trading rules for big stocks. This situation is not going to change and crooks will keep playing this way. If you understand all this, just follow what the crooks do and beat them in their game. There are a lot of idiot traders and shorts posting on this board hoping to mislead others; but, these tiny insects can't accomplish what they want because their attempts are in vain.
To me, it appears like the WS handlers are trying to find out, if there is any more juice left among sellers!! Low volume and a substantial drop are a sign of MM playing a game!! Some good news must be in the horizon. We will find out soon. Just hold tight!!!
I don't like to respond to such bogus posts; but, let me ask you: how many shares do you hold? Just put all those on sale and follow with your action where your mouth is. If you're a short, just buzz off.
Buddy, even every half-educated visitor of this board knows that Imetelstat is a wonder compound and telomere-telomerase concept is no longer a concept any more and is proving to be a fact in the world of oncology. As long as Geron holds the rights for this compound, it's potentially a rich company, unless Scarelett-Huh and company screws up badly!! Ws betters know that well too!! So your lie for the SP going "well below $2" can only come out from the infertile brain like yours!!! Do not think that others can be fooled by a foool (like you?)!
Have you ever bothered to look at the history of the company since its inception some 20 years ago? If you haven't. keep your BS shut!!! You are just a kid advising some one who knows far better than you!!
