Btw, I'm the wrong person to ask about investment strategy!!! I'm a SCIENCE guy...not really a trader. But I'm getting to be a better trader...after learning some tough lessons over the last few years!...lol
I almost took some profit today, but I didn#$%$ come up so fast. I expect it to consolidate around here for a while ($0.25-$0.35?).
It's definitely 5-bagger material if you hold for a couple of years, if you're a buy-and-hold investor...lol (kinda like ZLCS!!!!)
Hey, a lot of history in your posts. I sold some KERX in the 9's, but just bought it back. Kerx will get a buyout n the teens-- at least. YMI kills me. I owned it for months and it went nowhere, and sold my shares about 2 months before it got bought out.
It's not too late for THLD. It has big phase 3 trials going on and a low float and market cap, so the upside is aubstantial.
I talked with someone I know in the field whose had success with a very drastic treatment for M.S.--- giving patients chemotherapy to wipe out their immune system and then re-injecting them with stem cells in hopes of creation of a new immune system (that won't attack myelin). It works in many patients!! It's revolutionary. But it's also NOT feasible as public policy. It costs over $100K per patient and puts them at risk of death from infection like any chemotherapy does right after it wipes out the immune system. The theory is similar to dropping an atomic bomb on a major city with the hopes that one day a better city will be re-built in its place.
So there has to be better--and viable-- solution, and that's where Tcelna (Tovaxin) comes in--to modify the immune response selectively of those cells which attack the myelin--but not destroy the whole immune system. It is a great theory, but will it ultimately prove successful?? The answer is this: Where there is a spark, there is a fire. Altering the immune system with chemo DOES positively improve MS, so there IS proof of theory. But whether OPXA's drug is the answer, nobody knows. As you know, it has definitely has had a rocky past. But I've decided to put a few dollars on it as a long-term hold, since I view that, yes, there is a possibilty of success.
No, I'm not playing it. If I were invested here, I'd worry about a sell-the-news situation.
So I'd play the run-up until, say, March 25th....and sell before the event (but what do I know?...lol)
Well, after you exit zlcs, you should still post once in a while to say something imteresting or just to say hi.
Diversification is still the key....I'm having a very good year thus far --from my other biotech holdings --depite ZLCS doing nothing....
Another shot at a 10 bagger is IMUC or NWBO.
(NWBO is more risky though)
These are lottery tickets too--like OPXA
