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 $1 for 7 more days, many of the longs are going to bail a bunch. How does that old saying go? Fool me once, shame on you, fool me twice shame on me. We're beyond twice
While you post some interesting, and sometimes even relevant information, I can't help but wonder why you post here incessantly.
We've had more than our share of posters that "just want to help us dumb suckers or rubes or you name the disparaging description". The names that come to mind in the immediate past are hhgp, herexhear (you actually may be another handle for these 2 clones), btisaclown, and how could I forget rationalthought. Of course there are many others.
So what's your deal dlaskey. Why must you post so incessantly? Why must you be heard? Are you trying to save the world? But please, if you respond, please tell us something, anything, we haven't heard before. If you can't do that then kindly keep your winnings and losings to yourself. We really don't care.
Can we have peashooter and carrivechio back and all you other crazy people just go away? I didn't know how good things were when we had seemingly only these two "opposite ends of the spectrum" types posting here.
I love (obviously what long wouldn't) Oncy's trend higher, but the board is just a flaming mess. And yes I read the V2 board, but it's kind of a "cumbaya" kinda place where only good things happen with Oncy (Baba gets credit for being the most sane over there) and reality and desires rarely seem to come together.
So please, all you crazies that just joined the board in the last 2 weeks, just go away, OK?
Thanks so much! Pat
An amazing number of new posters have shown up in the last week or so, certainly too many to name, and certainly not worthwhile to try to name. I truly don't get this pumper/dumper #$%$, 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.
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.
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
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
