    Even if your right its more of a reason WHY MNKD will come out with an actual go forward strategy that will include funding, partner(s) and other plans. Matt has had 3 months and now it becomes essential to get the ball rolling. Matt can't sit around waiting for the market to come his way, so I'm fairly confident we will be moving forward with substantial news this week.

    international sales

    I always thought with Al's philanthropy in Israel he would have no problem pushing Afrezza thru very quickly. Even though it might not be a huge market it would have sent a nice message and an initial international deployment. Really expecting something this week that entails more then just Afrezza is back in our hands.

    Matt has had 3 months to put together a strategic vision and plan. He will have disappointed shareholders, if he doesn't deliver something substantial this week. Come on Matt step it up.

    Sentiment: Strong Buy

  • Though one day us longs will have a good tale to tell. Crazy how they sold this off all week. I mean a 10% pullback would have been normal, but taking it down over 20% with next weeks news is ridiculous. Well my prediction of a nice run on Friday doesn't look like its panning out. Have a good weekend and lets all hope Matt comes thru next week.

    Sentiment: Strong Buy

  • This was so obvious and they needed some breathing room on the short side. Had we stayed around $2 and then popped to $2.50-$3.00 the squeeze would have been big. Now we get news and we pop to $2 and they can start the games again. Still think we might get a nice run tomorrow into the weekend.

    Sentiment: Strong Buy

    They don't have a choice until they are done with the SNY relationship. Duct tape over their mouth as you would have heard from them long before on their dissatisfaction with SNY. I'm sure its been tough to keep quiet, but we will soon get a strategic direction update once this nightmare of a partnership is officially terminated.

    You are playing into their hands, so you are the fool. I'm over on iHub and get deleted many times. I was even banned to one post a day. It only makes me even more determined to persevere for the cause. Stay strong and continue to shed the light on the benefits of Afrezza.

    What MNKD needs to do but won't.

    The problem with TV ads are the labeling issues. The whole delay was supposedly because SNY wanted to add reduced A1C levels to the campaign and get some labeling changes around issues related to lung cancer? Now this may have just been an excuse, but I'm sure it would be used in any court hearing over a possible lawsuit.

    My point is that the labeling, pricing and lack of education isn't the easiest issues to overcome. Plus the fast acting along with reduced A1C levels can't be heavily promoted. I'm still a big believer that Afrezza should be sold off to the highest bidder and that might only fetch $5 a share, but it would free up money and give MNKD the ability to move into other areas.

    Now if a BP really wants to partner and promote Afrezza, while running further tests to improve coverage and labeling that's great because we need some deep pockets. Its going to take another $1B to do it right.

    Stock moved to fast and now you have profit taking along with shorts piling on new positions. Everyone cheering Matt, but reality is the dude still hasn't given us jack squat to work with at this point. It gets a little stale when everyone talks about some upcoming key date. I have heard more key dates with this company over the last 2+ years then I can count. 20K shares, but tired of waiting and its about time we were given some news on the go forward strategy.

    Sentiment: Buy

  • I've worked for several high tech start ups and no different then biotech start ups. The CEO's and founders always and I mean always think their company is worth so much more then the market is willing to pay. Last one I was at had an offer I negotiated for $150M and they turned it down. 5 years later they received $100M and reality they actually lost $100M because the other offer had a partial stock swap and that company's shares soared.

    Al had not factored in the FDA and BP along with the other nefarious happenings in this space. His old ways of dealing were now obsolete as he didn't factor in the power these companies have, while controlling the entire process.

    Now that MNKD is a bit on the ropes and doesn't have the same amount of leverage we will get a deal done. They need cash and they have a great product that BP wants, but at the right price. Al could have had $15 a share for MNKD. They will now settle for selling Afrezza for $5-$8 and take the rest of the company into other areas with their new partner. A deal will get done and Al's passing was probably the best thing for shareholders IMO

    Ditched it at the close just like everyday. Its like clock work and I guess not much you can do about it.

    Sentiment: Buy

  • Amazing we are holding up in a wild swing day. We usually get that take down near the end. I guess we still have 15 minutes before they close it at $1.20

    Sentiment: Buy

  • Problem we have now is a massive short squeeze move in the overall markets since mid-Feb has come to an abrupt halt. When China announces their exports declined 25% that's called a hard landing. Unfortunately for us shareholders nothing will be immune to more selling. Let's hope Matt has the goods and we get some real news next week and not just more Blah, Blah and Blah.

    With social media so prevalent I'm surprised Twitter, FB and Instagram to name a few isn't more highly leveraged by MNKD and their patients. The testimonials that initially came out were awesome. Why aren't all these patients contacted after the fact with free dosages and/or other incentives to share their stories online?

    Companies constantly promote the product thru these channels and we do such a poor job. Hell even an informercial with only testimonials and a lesson on how to dose with Afrezza? I know certain rules apply and maybe it just can't be done, but getting the information out is the biggest deterrent towards achieving success. I do think these clinics might be the answer. You could literally see thousands of patients in just a couple of clinics and that would clearly start a trend that would make a lot of headway. Also, why we can't get published any significant news by a few Endos reporting what they are seeing with patients would also be a big boost.

    We have lost a full year and the only benefit is we do have some early adopters from both a physician and user perspective. BP probably pushing those vacations to their doctors to sell their insulin rather then looking at new alternatives. Really despise SNY for their criminal conduct in this whole process and those trade rags that pounded us into the abyss. I still think we should take the $1.5B-$2B buy out for Afrezza and move on to new drugs. Believe me that type of deal is on the table. Its not the best solution, but it would clearly get the stock and company back on track. Plenty of other areas we can focus on with technosphere.

    Company should be selling at 4X-5X revenues

    I've followed this one for a long time and it is a joke. Over priced even at the IPO and then they run it up based on being a Wall Street darling. This stock will end up in the teens it should just continue to grind lower over the rest of the year. People talking buy out are insane as nobody would pay much more then 2-3X rev, so it would be a buy out in the $25 range at best. In a good market the stock might get 4X valuation and that's in the $30 range. Even CRM is doing nothing after its one day pop and they at least made the number and slightly upped the guidance.
