you are looking at the dec 2013 options not the 2014 options that gary is mentioning. those recent 2014 options were an exercise only
you obviously don't understandtaxation of corporate options. yes there is a tax liability but what happens is the company sells enough of the excercised shares after the exercise to cover the tax liability. no money comes out of the officers pockets thus it cost them nothing.that is how the options work for me and others that I know in other companies.
both of you -- let's deal in facts --- there were 57500 sold -- 420000 were acquired but they were not acquired in the market -- they were options that cost the mgt nothing. now the good thing is they got the 420k and did not sell them -- however we don't know if they shorted in the market using them as the basis. end result --- we can't infer much
i was going to respond to you and ---- then i just decided to disagree with your assessment of his post. i disagree with your interpretation.
So the federal government employee will work on saturday or sunday to the the approval to them this weekend. Have you ever been to washington dc on a weekend.
haahahahahahahahahahhah ur funny
you hit the nail on the head. most bio investors don't understand the concept. some still talk of a padufa runup but i haven't seen that in any bio in years. as you point out the bets are placed and everyone is hunkered down.
the other concept i laugh at is the approval coming early. -- that is a good one. federal employees working aroung the clock through the holidays to get rmti approved early --- hahahahahahahah -- that's a good one.
What you are saying is that federal employees are going to work extra hard to release the opinion about a month early. You must be a foreigner who doesn't understand federal employees and their work habits.
Try -- end of year malaise or tax loss selling not done or 8 to 3 adcom and people are being cautious or a large short position or the market is tanking and most bio's have been going down or there is absolutely no interest in accumumalating any more shares long - etcetera etcetera.
one point I would like to make to you --- as soon as someone claims no profits, sales or income on a development stage biotech I know he knows nothing about the subject.
Corporations don't have to be in america they can go anywhere they want and take there jobs with them. There are many countries where the corporate taxes are lower and amreican corps are leaving here and going there. And let's not even discuss the 4 trillion in us cash overseas that could be repatriated when the tax situation was fixed. You marxist/radical environmentalist are driving the jobs overseas.
Karl, maybe you should go back to the 60's when john kennedy, a democrat, cut taxes and tax revenues increased substantially or when reagan cut them and the same thing happened. why are you here mister marx.
