    Operative word "guess". I am long both, but speculating on buyouts is a waste of time and on the price to be paid even more so. If you have something constructive- please share- but screaming takeover, buyout, is a bunch of blah blah blah to most serious investors.

    And your saying this because you have information from ..where? M & A speculation is a waste of time when there is no valid information to support it. So, please, if you have convincing evidence- the operative word being evidence, share. Otherwise, shhhhhh.

    Shouldn't Hernando Be Calling SA Articles Out?

    Mick- Unfortunately, if you read the "bio" of the SA author "analyst" he is pretty green and although a Harvard grad, neither a scientist nor an investor with much experience. That said, and I am long PSDV and have significant shares which from multiple purchases are now up about 30%, I am a long time investor (+30 years), past scientist and healthcare professional, and a patient person. I do believe there will be approval and I do see this company over the next 3-5 years making our long term strategy worthwhile either as a stand alone or a buyout for the technology developed within its walls. I have made considerable investments in biotech, read clinical trials results, and hang in there when I see potential. Don't sweat the noise.

    holding my SHORT at $45

    One insider selling shares, but a small relative percent to his holdings, does not constitute "so much insider dumping". It may just be that he wanted to free up some shares for us little guys and maybe buy a nice house since he knows he will be able to afford it long term, so you can hold onto your shorts and hope they don't fill with too much garbage.

    Sentiment: Buy
