    After hours

    Paul, why do you keep on reporting this stuff? 500 shares pre-market, 1400 shares after hours means nothing. Surely you've picked that up by now. When we see 10's or 100's of thousands of shares traded pre and or after hours, then it might have some meaning. Please stop.

    fighting for the $1.00 close

    Because it's been a very predictable, and I hesitate to use this phrase, "pump and dump". We, I for sure, have seen this happen several times over the years. Seen it enough in fact (as have other longs) that I'm now reading about others that have lightened their load already pretty significantly. For the record, I sold about 1/6 of my shares just recently, and am kinda chomping at the bit to sell more.

    Yes, the company is putting out a bunch of stuff (I call it fluff cause it's meaningless until something more significant happens, like an approved PIII randomized trial), so I remain snake bitten. I'm quite certain others do as well.

    I'm not a rah-rah owner. I side with the D2foxes on this board, and the Peterbot's on the V2 board, that tend to question everything. Why shouldn't we? this has been going on for a long, long time. And I'm not one, like Dlaskey, that is good at timing the peaks and valleys, so I don't trade very much at all.

    I don't believe there's a chance in the world that this stock dips below $1 and stays there through a close in the next 7 days. This move, at least in my mind, has been completely orchestrated. For what reason? That seems pretty obvious (staying listed on NASDAQ). By who? Could be ONCY, could be Lincoln Park, could be some new player, could be a combination of any of the above or others as well. Given that there's a huge incentive to stay listed on the Nasdaq, you know where I'm leaning.

    The longs here have seen this before and have been burned by it before. The well chronicled run to $6.85 about 6-7 years ago,is all that needs be said. But what I will say (guess) is that most of the longs are thinking like I am. Been there, done that. If this stock stays above $1 for 7 more days, many of the longs are going to bail a bunch. How does that old saying go? Fool me once, shame on you, fool me twice shame on me. We're beyond twice

    While you post some interesting, and sometimes even relevant information, I can't help but wonder why you post here incessantly.

    We've had more than our share of posters that "just want to help us dumb suckers or rubes or you name the disparaging description". The names that come to mind in the immediate past are hhgp, herexhear (you actually may be another handle for these 2 clones), btisaclown, and how could I forget rationalthought. Of course there are many others.

    So what's your deal dlaskey. Why must you post so incessantly? Why must you be heard? Are you trying to save the world? But please, if you respond, please tell us something, anything, we haven't heard before. If you can't do that then kindly keep your winnings and losings to yourself. We really don't care.

    Can we have peashooter and carrivechio back and all you other crazy people just go away? I didn't know how good things were when we had seemingly only these two "opposite ends of the spectrum" types posting here.

    I love (obviously what long wouldn't) Oncy's trend higher, but the board is just a flaming mess. And yes I read the V2 board, but it's kind of a "cumbaya" kinda place where only good things happen with Oncy (Baba gets credit for being the most sane over there) and reality and desires rarely seem to come together.

    So please, all you crazies that just joined the board in the last 2 weeks, just go away, OK?

    Thanks so much! Pat

  • pwstan by pwstan Feb 25, 2015 6:51 PM Flag

    An amazing number of new posters have shown up in the last week or so, certainly too many to name, and certainly not worthwhile to try to name. I truly don't get this pumper/dumper #$%$, especially for lil ole ONCY, but what I know will happen soon is that most will disappear. They are generally close to being illiterate, of a grammar school level of interaction ability and completely obnoxious. I'll take our regular 180 degree posters (peashooter and carrivechio) over them anytime.

    As I said, I don't get it, and yes us retail investors are the last to know when it comes to news(which seems to lend credibility that these "new" posters are paid), but how can these posters help or hurt the stock when there's about 20 regulars here and I'm not one of them.

    Just thinking out loud. Let the pumpers and dumpers carry on.

    Cheers, Pat

    Ya know, I think you're right and have sort of felt that way for a long time.

  • pwstan pwstan Feb 17, 2015 3:38 PM Flag

    I doubt you'll hear back from him/her regarding that question. What is a bit telling about this poster is that he/she has been on several boards very recently (the handle is only a couple of weeks old) touting the very same thing over and over in slightly different words; something akin to "just shorted 100,000k on this pig/stock/loser. Click on the handle and you'll see the M.O.

    Thanks much Speed. I will look into your leads.

    BTW, I've got a feeling you have less snow and cold where you are than where I am, Connecticut, USA. Been a long while since I can recall a winter like this. Thankfully, I'm semi-retired and find it pretty easy to deal with.

    cheers, Pat

    Hey Speed,

    I know you've been trying to reply to my inquiry below, and your replies are getting deleted. For some reason I get an email message telling me you've replied, and giving me the first 2-3 lines of your reply, but that's it.

    For the record, I was/am quite sincere about the nature of my questions posed to you. I'd really like to have true raw data and run some tests against it. Thanks for the efforts

    Hey Speed,

    Where would inquiring minds go to find that raw data? I'd love to see it. I trust neither the media or the politically connected scientists (either side of the aisle), so having access to true stuff would be excellent.

    Do you use any particular statistical tests (parametric vs. non-parametric, and if so which ones specifically if you don't mind my asking?) to do your own DD?

    Thanks much! Pat

    It's amazing how wrong you are minktrader2014. The only person on this board that has been consistently right in his challenges about Oncy mgmt, Oncy trials, Oncy results and Oncy posters (of the glass is always 3/4 full variety) has been D2Foxes. You must either be 1) really stupid, 2) a shill for someone wanting the demise of this company or 3) another Bailey/Carrivechio clone.

    Good grief! You and so many other longs here (I'm one too, but I get/understand the failure now) refuse to look at the results as anything more than a guiding light for the promise of good things ahead. The reality is, the management of this company have painted themselves into a nasty corner with very few ways out (a bad deal partnership, a cheap buyout, a reverse split, or a walk-off home run in the bottom of the 15th inning). Give me an out at $1.00 a share and I'm gone. Speaking of gone, just where have those other "trusted" longs gone like RJC, Matdu, Nomenome, Proboscis, Geneman, ..., gone? Fact is, they were smarter or more devious than any of us. They laid the groundwork for great expectations and vanished months/years ago.

    What's that saying, "Fool me once, shame on you, Fool me twice, shame on me"? We've been fooled many more times than twice and we're still here.

    I know, once again, you're going to do all that sophmoric stuff that you and your pal (Armed) do by calling me names (PStain), and once again, you're going to accuse me of being D2Foxes. Well, once again you're wrong, wrong, wrong.

    I truly hope Oncy can pull out of this. I doubt it. They don't have the management stuff, IMO, to pull it off. If I don't see something remarkable happen soon, I'll be gone from this stock and not at all happy with the results.

    Weak Hands Flushed Out

    pwstan pwstan Sep 17, 2014 7:17 PM Flag

    I for one would love to see the company sold at 3.50 per share right now. But it's not gonna happen in my opinion. I am hugely (is that a word) long, for 15 years, and I can't imagine any company ante-ing up that kind of money for the continuously "interesting", "very interesting", etc, etc, results that this company has delivered. Thompson has already said, in a reply to one of the posters on the V2 board, when asked if Saab would have new information, "I am not sure what he will talk about beyond safety and the overall PFS, so nothing new." Why expect more??

    I'm really disappointed in how this turned out. But ya got to take off the rose colored gl#$%$es eventually. I'll listen to Saab, or read about his poster board, but if it's not really good, time to cut bait. And I'm already kicking myself in the #$%$ for waiting this long.

    Yours has got to be the biggest bunch of horse manure that anyone has planted on this non-fertile ground in eons. Good grief!

    You say "a great biotech company". Please tell us what makes it great?? The leadership. Uh-uh!. They just finished relieving their long tenured CEO of his job (we all rejoiced, but the vote is still out on his replacement). Virtually no one on the staff or the board ever buys shares on the open market. Gee, there's a real shot to the arm for long suffering longs.

    You say "an amazing pipeline". Every drug these guys have ever produced or bought has taken eons to test. The one drug, Erivedge, that was commercialed was accomplished by Roche, not CRIS. And the contract for the royalties of this drug was negotiated by that "great biotech company" that you claim they are, starts at 5% and may, maybe, if we all go out and sit in the sun for many years and develop advanced melanoma, could rise to 7.5%, You believe in 427. Possibly, yes. Possibly 10-15 years from now if their phase 1 can get re-started and enrolled. What you say, hsp-90. Try to find that anywhere enrolling like wildfire. Oh, I know what you're thinking of. Their newly acquired IDP drug that's going into Phase II. I will say this. It has promise, if only someone else could run the trial. Even though they say early 2015 results, based upon past performance, I'd be happy with early 2016.

    Negative am I? Cynical? You better believe it. Have been invested in this company for a real long time. I bailed on 66% of my stock at $3.30. Was really stupid to hang on to 33%. I will completely bail just as fast as I can. I like the products, I despise the management and the board. They seem like figureheads to me, a rudderless ship, or perhaps, just really selfish, lazy, stupid people.

    My 2 cents.
