    Copying my reply to a previous Eeyore (the Winnie the Pooh character) sound-alike since you also share his 'nothing-good-ever-happens' philosophy. Some fun, grumpy Eeyore-isms for you to borrow, try sprinkling some of these them into your future comments.
    “It’s all for naught.”
    “Wish I could say yes, but I can’t.”
    “Days. Weeks. Months. Who knows?”
    “If it is a good morning, which I doubt.”
    “It’s not much of a tail, but I’m sort of attached to it.”
    “It’s an awful nice tail, Kanga. Much nicer than the rest of me.”
    “Sure is a cheerful color. Guess I’ll have to get used to it.”
    "After all, one can't complain. I have my friends. Somebody spoke to me only yesterday. And was it last week or the week before that Rabbit bumped into me and said 'Bother!'."

    Any rational investor with no faith in management would either contact management or sell. So why would you continue to hold shares and whine about it on a message board unless ... You're afraid to contact management yourself and discuss your concerns or maybe you're hoping some commenter here will do that for you since you don't have the courage? Either that or you're phony -- a paid basher looking for cheap shares.

    Either you're just another basher who pretends to be long or ...
    you're a cranky person whining on a message board and Gerald doesn't post here. How intelligent is that?

    Why are you here again? -- for cheap shares? Because you're paid to be here pretending to be a long? Who knows. Why should anyone take you seriously?

    Great question for the CC

    Zoller35, it's sort of happy hour here where I'm at, I hope you're happy. Happy Labor Day, btw. Just curious, were there 34 previous "Zollers"? You're on number 35, I see. Hope those other 34 "Zollers" fared well and made decent returns on their investments and all. I read some of your previous posts and saw you were a bit late to the AGNC party - oops, that was fun while it lasted. I beat you to that one was as well. And I beat you to this one. From your comment history looks like you're a chartist. You certainly have no idea about the company you're bashing now. Short it if you can. Bash away. I don't know if you appreciate cinema - I love it, great art form. In the words of Willy Wonka (the great Gene Wilder, with zero enthusiasm): "Stop. Don't. Come back."

    terryandyolanda, glad you're finding humor here too.

    I can't take credit for that comment though -- it was written by "watsonhepler" -- the person spoofing "watsonhelper." Btw, I think the real watsonhelper almost always has something interesting thing to say, no offense intended to anyone here.
    Cheers

    Risk, I guess part of the fun of reading comments on an mb like this one is discovering who's who. You're a bit more confident than I am about the identities of bashers and commenters like Watsonhelper. But the idea that "watsonhelper" is a registered nurse, a BSN - I had to look that up - is pretty dam* funny. No offense to RNs, I have a couple in the family and understand they have to learn quite a bit, almost as much as a doctor. Funny stuff.

    I was the older gentleman wearing flannel pajamas and a light colored London Fog coat hiding behind the pygmy palm tree in the lobby.

    If Smitty can tell me what color flip-flops I was wearing then he must have been there.

    I know for certain it wasn't riskreturns168 talking to Gerald. I've seen him before. Less"

    Let's talk about the ODD approval rate

    by anabanana_83 Aug 18, 2014 5:31 PM
    only_one_cannoli only_one_cannoli Aug 19, 2014 12:17 AM Flag

    Nonsense. This is not true. The 82% approval rate is for drugs that have survived both pre-clinical and Phase 1 stages and are currently in a Phase 2 clinical trial. Read the phrase "Phase 2 forward" from the original research that Premier is referring to. The odds of a drug ultimately receiving FDA approval get better as that drug progresses from pre-clinical into phase 1, 2 ,3. The probability of a pre-clinical drug ultimately getting approved is pretty slim. But not so poor as to make AMBS a bad investment, imo, especially since we could have multiple chances for getting something approved aka many shots on goal.

    The Premier Research author misunderstood the research he/she was quoting from. ( that source is listed in Premier's footnotes: "Bernstein Research. The long view: doing well by doing good -- the advantages of adopting a family of orphans. Global Biotechnology, 28 April 2010.")

    This is Bernstein's actual quote that Premier Research mischaracterized: "Orphan designations have better odds for approval with an 82% success rate (Phase 2 forward) as opposed to 35% for traditional drugs"

    Interesting that someone (you) who rails against mb pumpers can so easily, through posts like this one, raise investors' hopes despite having good intentions, at least I assumed they were good.

    Per "The Science of Hope" from Premier Research, the approval chance of an drug that granted ODD is 82%. They also mention the average approval rate of drugs are 35%. Filing for MANF ODD is exciting to me because of this. Yes, revenue is great, but you need approval to get there first. That 82% chance of approval is just too sweet."

    Animal tamer, I believe the more you read about this company and it's potential, the better you'll feel. Not saying this applies to you but I think a lot of newcomers bought recently prior to doing their homework on ambs. And there's a whole lot to read and watch out there including an analyst's reports, the company website, lympro white paper, scientific papers on manf, a chairman's blog, CEO interviews, bio pages, etc. ... and yes, even CEO tweets (*gasp*)

    I recommend the investors hangout mb, this place had a better mix of informed commenters at one time. No more.

    You know, I think I read everything available as well. Are you saying you never saw this GC comment or are you going to quibble over 2 cents? (the difference in share price between then and now)

    Zarc, if you've really been long since sub .10 how much of a return have you made and what % would it take for you not to feel 'bamboozled?'

    Going long, GC was never emphatic about an RS not being needed, he said an RS *may not be* needed. Very different. And a prudent comment since it's not possible for anyone to predict how the market will react as AMBS achieves various goals which was also a point that he's made. You've read too much into his previous statement that an RS may not be needed.

    As far as the 1:20 RS example, I believe he chose that number because it's based on the current share price. He's already said that we wont RS at these levels. And 1:20 probably represents the most extreme possible split ratio so it lowers investors' expectations. If he had speculated on a lower RS ratio, say 1:5, that would have just created a lot of confusion and given the impression that he was predicting where pps will be prior to a possible RS. Again, GC isn't in the prediction business, his job is to consider possible scenarios and plan accordingly.
