    TORRII Stock price

    I am trying to do what you have done sell after a run up and rebuy lower. It only takes a couple of times to figure this out some what. Impossible to totally figure out the computers, and there manipulation tactics, but trying.
    A couple of times I have sold on the run up thinking it was at the top for the day and it goes higher. So then I hesitate and it drops, scratching my head on why I did not sell. On Monday after it hit 15 and change I should have sold BUT I thought we were starting then next run up to 17- didn't happen.
    My confidence for the run up next week is dwindling a bit, but my gut still thinks we shoot up next week.
    Earnings, Japan release and FDA all in 6 weeks.
    Lots of positive coming.

    Sentiment: Strong Buy

    Earlier in the day, the market was up, the sector was up and we were down. That is where I saw the manipulation going on for the options.
    As you said to look at the big picture we may not be doing so bad.
    I am glad I sold at 17 to rebuy on Monday at 14 .30 or I would really be #$%$.
    I do feel we start going up next week, but my confidence in that is dwindling.
    I do know at least in a couple of weeks.

    You are 100 % correct. We are much heavier at 14 and 15, but the butt holes are going to make these they expire worthless. When we ran above 14, I really thought we would close in that range.
    Now that the butt holes have beat it down again, I say 13's with a lot of worthless options.
    Another way of market manipulation and its legal for them.
    So where is the SEC for this bs- no where

    TORRII Stock price

    I totally agree- its power of the options right now and the ridiculous manipulation. Quite a pucker factor a short time ago.
    If it was not for options I believe we would be between 16 and 17 right now.
    On Monday when we took off and crossed 15 I thought we were going to continue up after a small pull back. I went to the store and scratched my head on the continued downward spiral.
    Monday is when I bought back in after selling at 17, so I am doing ok but this gets frustrating.
    As I said yesterday, just when you think you know what its going to do, when you think you are at the bottom boom it changes on you.
    options seem to cause this at least some times. At the time of this writing we just crossed 14, lets see where we end the day.

    So we have earnings in the first full week of May. May 12 release in Japan, and 3 weeks later FDA approval.
    Yes like I really want to sell my shares- what a mooron for writing that article. Hopefully his 50 stupid followers will now question him.

    Thanks for the info. I wonder if this news was released a couple of days ago in Japan. Torri had a nice jump a couple of days ago.

    Did you notice the nice jump Torri had on their Wed?? They pulled back a little last night, I am interested if they have another nice jump tonight.
    The last time it jumped nice the Japanese approval was announced so is something coming???

    Good catch, that one sale was just short of 100K alone. I noticed the large blocks to buy lined up this afternoon. At one time it was close to 750K, other times it 500-600K shares to buy.
    Obviously people want these shares.

    You have me really watching the options lately. I still think we will end tomorrow in the 14's.
    I also believe that next week we go up. Its seems like every time we flat line and the market and sector are up we go up the following week. Correct??? You know his better than I

    SA Article Just Out

    by irashorr Apr 16, 2014 10:55 AM
    rls787 rls787 Apr 16, 2014 1:51 PM Flag

    Funny how these negative BS articles come out during options week so often to manipulate the stock down.
    They can also come put after a nice run up to kill the momentum.
    I have also with a different stock seen rumors come out to run up the price on a Friday just before options expire. The following week they recant on the rumor and the stock plummets. I saw it happen several times a couple of years ago. That particular stock would go from 3 or 4 up to 7 and then back to 3 or 4.
    That stock is ocz technology and is now back to sub penny.
    I am sharing this to show how much these writers MANIPULATE the market with there BS.
    With us it has been the negative articles to keep it down in THERE range. I am sure we take off next week.
    Most of you have seen these bs articles many times, but if you are newer to the market hopefully you just learned something and you wont get caught up in there bs articles. They are usually negative but do sometimes go positive to run it up, only to have the trap door open next week, and watch it plummet after they have sold with there profits, and its legal for them to do it.

    FDA approval coming, and this nonsense ?

    You are close at your 25 for June.
    Call options for June are $27, that does not mean we will hit that mark, but you never know.
    That is what I see here on the yahoo options, my TD Ameritrade account shows heavy at 22 for June expirations. I am sure we will be much higher than that.
    Options for this month seem to be pretty close between 14 and 15. Right now looks like we end in the 14's where we started the week. Pathetic for a good market week. I am sure we go higher next week, no matter what the market does, because when the computers finally decide its time to go up, it goes up even on a crppy market day.

    Glad you are feeling better and out of the hospital. Too bad you came back to this #$%$.
    I thought we were at bottom yesterday. Just goes to show you never know, especially during options week.
    Looking at options earlier we were heaviest at 14 and then 15. So just guessing I anticipate going back to 14 by Thursday, markets are closed Friday. On that theory they ran it down today to bring it back tomorroiw, and Thursday.
    Again you think you what those damn computers are going to do and they change up on you.
    Anyway good to hear you are out of the hospital. If you did not buy yesterday like I did today is an even better entrance point, wont stay here long.

    A buy out soon means SOME quick money now, and if that's the case I will take and run for the next stock. BUT, if the buy out does not come until the end of the year or later, KERX by that time will be MUCH higher. Obviously that means some one will have to pay that much more for KERX and that means we make that much more.,
    I rebought back in today to what I thought was going to be a really nice day up and now I am scratching my head.
    This up/down is driving me nuts but I know what's coming. The later the buyout the more we make.

    You make a good point but my question is who the heck came up with a stupid rule like that.
    Is that another wall street BS rule to manipulate the market in favor of shorts??
    May be I am reading what you are saying in a wrong way but it looks like more wall street bs.
    Again I am not discounting what you are saying just disgusted with the wall street bs

    I thought the EMA was initially suppose to be in May of this year just befor eour FDA approval. That has been backed up until after the 13 week study that should be under way right now. That would take us into this fall 3Q14.
    I could easily be wrong that is the way I remember it. Big Jeff, MGM or W4KERX should be able to clarify better.
    I have been thinking we would see a 1-2 punch with FDA in June and EMA 4-6 weeks later.
