  • Credit Suisse analyst Kennen MacKay issued a report today on SGEN's CD-33A that predicts a measure of success in 1L AML in elderly, high risk patients vis-a-vis Roche/AbbVie’s venetoclax:

    "ORR Rates Similar but SGN-CD33A May Have Safety Edge: In data to date, we note that venetoclax has achieved comparable response rates vs. SGN33A with similar safety profiles in this population (see Figure 1). While the FDA’s breakthrough designation likely expedites venetoclax’s approval, we see room for multiple players and note SGN-CD33A avoids tumor lysis syndrome, which could complicate venetoclax dosing. We see venetoclax’s oral dosing as an advantage, but note dose-related tumor lysis syndrome could necessitate a REMS program, including potential hospitalization/monitoring during dose up-titration. This could potentially
    dissuade physicians and patients given logistical hurdles. Hence, we maintain our SGN-CD33A assumptions of a 2020 launch with 45% peak market share."

    Thinking of follwing Bakers recent purchases

    Seven grayed out/ignored posts in a row. I take it that the multi-aliased sanity-challenged troll known as fstout57/term14/quadhole/quadholes/rickarooski/etc. is talking to himself again.

    Back to SGEN (and the Bakers), a thought: Though the price action has sucked big-time in recent weeks, it's almost identical to what happened at this time last year, before we slumped to 30 and bounced back into the 50s. All of this latest action comes without any SGEN-specific news or change in the company's prospects. Also, though lots of somebodies are selling in large volume, lots of somebodies also are buying in large volume (especially on the dramatic early-day dips) - and they are not the Bakers, who vikingjim rightly points out are sidelined until after the Feb. 9 conference call and might be sorely tempted to resume their buying as soon as they legally can. So, I guess, there's some solace there.

    Ricardo, I just took him off ignore for a moment and I see what you mean. Despicable. Regarding that alias and the rest of his aliases, I rest my case. Place them all on ignore and the board will be as useful as ever.

    From the number of blocked posts I'm seeing grayed out, it appears the the troll known variously as fsout57/term14/quadhole/quadholes/rickarooski/mauihope/smelkykid/etc. has been filibustering the board so as to suppress and push down and out of sight the post that exposes him. This is that post:

    Just so you know: For anyone who might be new here, this board has been plagued for years by a singular troll - one who is distinguished by his talent for inventing new aliases, by his mental instability and also by his ignorance. Over the years, he has been known as rickarooski, mauihope, smelkykid, quadhole, quadholes, fstout57 and probably several others.

    Now, knowing that every knowledgeable poster on this board has put all of those aliases on ignore, he has brought out the alias of term14, which he rarely - or never - has used here before.

    How do we know that this is the same person? Easy: He only shows up when things are going badly for the stock, he has a deeply embedded hatred of the Bakers (and for anyone who is more successful than he, which means everyone), he's borderline illiterate ('week' when he means 'weak') and his posts are filled with ignorance of how the market and most investors actually work. (For instance, anyone who really follows biotech knows that the Bakers, with their huge gains, are immune to "taps on the shoulder." And, if they have sold even one share in recent days or weeks, they would have been legally obligated to file an SEC document to that effect.)

    He also isn't very smart or strategic, He always gives himself away eventually, as he did earlier today with that reference to the stock going to 8 or 9, an echo of rickarooski's slogan of years ago - "10 is 10" - not that either he nor we ever really understood what that meant.

    So, there you are. The more you know. Just another unstable troll who wasn't raised very well and gets off by rubbing salt into your (hopefully transient) wounds.

    Kool, thanks, but like Amp, I immediately recognize him and place his 'new" aliases on perma-ignore. The only way he gets to me is through my funny bone. Think of that post as a public service for relatively new readers of the board. :)

    Yep, but trust me - the multiple-alias troll most recently known as term14 will pretend that he hasn't read your post. Doesn't much matter, of course, as he has joined his other personalities on perma-ignore. .

    this is what happens when one single buyer supports

    muffledrums: The "troll" post answers your question. Obviously, no one here likes what's happening, but for context: The same thing happened almost exactly a year ago, when SGEN sank to a 52-week low of $30.13, only to rebound later in the year and reach $52.33. As of this writing, just as back then, we know of nothing significant that has changed in the company's fundamentals and prospects.

    Another Rickarooski alias, and back to his "10 is 10"' rap.

    Is this volatility typical?

    I noticed that, and I imagine that it's giving the manipulators some tailwind, but it seems to have a lot more to do with Roche's molecules than with SGEN's ADC technology.

    I don't know (probably just the usual volatility - nothing significant appears to have changed in the company's fundamentals and prospects). And I don't care. If the Bakers are still in for the long run and not selling, I'm still in for the long run and not selling.

    Amp, 10-4. I thought so, but was just checking. I never touch my significant long-term core SGEN holding, but I sometimes swing trade a little with 1,000 additional shares. It's worked pretty well, generating some extra play money. Sort of a win-win. If I'm right, and so far, I have been, I make a few bucks. If I have to hold those extra shares a little longer than expected, that's fine, too, as it temporarily inflates the core holding.

    I'm still in CLDX (way ahead with good future prospects), MSTX (large holding in a total long-shot crapshoot) and, most recently, FWP. In other words, given my way overweight position in SGEN, I'm living dangerously. :)

    Amp, those are your trading shares. Are you still holding SGEN long-term shares?

  • redhot47fla by redhot47fla Jan 11, 2016 9:01 PM Flag

    Someone popped in and started buying pretty aggressively, beginning around 2 p.m. If history is any guide, it could be the insider Bakers, further strengthening their already dominant position.

    And this genius wrote the very same rather obvious post about 13 different companies. And his alias is only four days old. You don't suppose he's also....

    Your reply also has been archived for later use. (Sadly, Yahoo flashes even ignored posts, so you're "I am out of this stock" caught my eye. Please take your other aliases with you. We'll always remember you for the brilliant, "10 is 10.")
