  • interesting, that takes away some of our short squeeze BUT on the positive side there wont be so many shorts to jack with it until approval.

    Sentiment: Strong Buy

  • They were talking about this on CNBC today and called it a big short squeeze- congrats to them.
    Hopefully this will pull the bio tech sector along with us up tomorrow.
    Hopefully this will make the shorts here think about covering before it happens to them here. Of course a great short squeeze here would be nice too.

    $14.40

    Yes it did bounce off 14.40, BUT after the pull back it has come back up and is hovering close to 14.40.
    I agree if we break through we go higher, and even if we don't today, the fact that we are holding up well at resistance is a good indicator for tomorrow to go higher.
    I hope I did not just jinx us.

    I was busy at work today, and not much time to watch.
    I just looked at EOD, and I see almost 300K in buy blocks, so why did we go down today??
    IBB, and XBI up also, not a lot but up.
    This has happened before, and then all of a sudden boom we go up, so if you are new here take a valium, you may need it for a few days.

    Thanks for the post. This brings ADDITIONAL CONFIDENCE to all longs.
    Short of a really #$%$ market, we go up next week, and remember we CAN and HAVE gone up on bad market days.
    I believe that because 14 was the lowest pay out for options, that is why we did go back up to 15 yesterday. Of course would it have hurt if we ended closer to 15.
    Lets get going. We are 7 weeks to Sept. and if approval comes in 3 weeks early like MNKD that puts us 1 month away.

    Funny how we ended at 14 which paid out the least amount. MMMM!!
    Especially on such a good market day, we should have went higher.
    Anything but a really bad week and I am confident we go up next week. How high who knows

    I feel the same way, BUT it has done this before. It holds up well on a bad day or low day like yesterday, and then on a good day it drops. This drives me nuts, but again it has done this before.
    About the time you want to call this stock every type of BS you can think of then BAM it goes up.
    I am pssed just like you, again it has done this before.

    I hope you are right. WE are still heavy for call options at 17. I still have hope but the way its acting I am loosing a little confidence though for the pop next week. I hope it does I have bills to pay and I need the equity in the account. As we move into August we should get going with some people anticipating an early approval.
    I hope some shorts are covering here- we will see.

    I forgot to mention Israel as part of the market turmoil, and that did just start.
    If you read the bible it will get worse over there.

    The market is blowing off steam today.
    Some Portugese bank is in trouble.
    Europe in general is not looking good- all of a sudden.
    Chinese economic data is not good.
    At 6:30 CT everything is fine the PM was up slightly. 45 mins or so later everything is in turmoil.
    Come on and give me a break that everything is happening at one time. All this has been out there and now at one time it implodes the market. This will not be a good day for the market but they seem to keep going up, at some point it has to pull back.
    On Squawk Box a short time ago, they said a 4-6% correction is due.
    We have already seen that from the 16.50 high the other day. 14.85 is a 10% correction.
    Also remember my long friends I have seen this stock go up on down days and hold pretty well on really bad days, since we have already been beat down.
    Yesterday I shut off the computer and at the end of the day we were up. We may not go up today but if we can hold here that is a positive. We will see shortly.
    Again Good Luck
    If you have extra money buy, 5-8 weeks to approval

    I am starting to barf. I have things to do so I am going to shut this dmn computer off and try not to check stocks on my phone. 40 mins in, it looks like we are trying to bounce this is pathetic.

    I keep watching the option calls for July and after the pull back we are still very heavy at 17.
    30 mins into trading and the butt holes are pulling it down more. If good news wasn't coming I'd leave, I am tired of this, but it would be stupid to leave now when we are so close.
    Hang in there like I am.
    Good Luck To All Longs

    As I have been saying we have been heavy at 17 for about 2 weeks now. This morning 18 got some volume but the pull back took away some of that volume. Still real heavy at 17, I keep wondering if some type of good news like upgrades are coming.

    GE down .47 percent; Keryx slightly green

    85 cents from the high to the low, wish I would have sold and rebought this would have been a good day to play the volatility. I am sure I am not the only one saying that right now.
    2 points of good news:
    1. Hopefully some shorts took advantage of this to cover- hopefully.
    2. One hour into trading I saw some volume at 18 for call options. We are still heaviest at 17 and that's ok too because that is still showing us going up.
    Again hopefully some shorts took advantage of this smack down to cover.

    rls787 rls787 Jul 2, 2014 10:51 AM Flag

    I believe you are the one that made start watching the options.
    Although it is very early in the month options are heavy at 17. I noticed this over a week ago the interest in 17. I felt that good news was coming to catapult us to 17. We are moving that way, but once we get there who knows what happens. After watching this pull back several times and left me crying ,the last time we hit 17 I did sell. I rebought in the 14's one day before it went even lower. Now I am wondering if you are right. Does the rug get pulled out from under us again or not. Is the FDA approval just days or a week or 2 away to hold us in the 17's, or is the usual pull back coming after a run up. So the danger is, sell in 17's or not. If it pulls back that is the right call obviously. BUT, if you sell and the FDA comes thru you are left watching it pop in AH or PM and you missed out on the BIG RUN.
    Also the pull back probably wont be so bad this time due to the fact that Sep. is just around the corner, and again don't forget that an early announcement can come.
    Wasn't MNKD 3 weeks early?? That would be 4-5 weeks away for us.
    Who knows whats going to happen in the short term, in the long term ALL LONGS WIN!!!!
    Good Luck to all Longs and have a safe and happy 4th.

    AH price drop to 2.46%

    rls787 rls787 Jul 1, 2014 10:14 PM Flag

    I do not know who sold but I believe that a MM, or Hedge Fund sold to themselves to make it look like someone was STUPID and sold at a ridiculous price. I do believe they do this to scare us into thinking about selling the next day.
    Also watch I the opening mins of trading. Have you seen the occasional 10, 15, 20 cent up candlesticks?? Watch it in level 2. I have seen these large candlesticks up, but they do not absorb all the other bids while it goes up.
    How do they do this? I believe the bid and ask are the same company. They buy there own shares causing this big run up, and making you think it is on a run up, and then all of a sudden BAM it goes down. May be you just bought thinking it was about to shoot up, and it drops 20, 30 cents.
    This does not happen a lot but I do see it occasionally, and they get away with it.
    Watch in level 2 and you will see it in action.
    This manipulation can go up and down depending on what they want to do to your psyche.

    You are right 4100 shares at 15.60 at 16:23
    1900 shares sold total at 16:31 and 16:32 back up to 16.00
    Just your basic price manipulation, nothing to get excited about.
    Check nasdaq after hours to see for yourself.
    10,857 total shares sold in AH by 16:37, NOTHING like the last 2 days in the AH.
