Flipper always finds those hidden gems. Good analogy on your part, by the way. I like that.. dosing schedule is the carburetor for reving up all those those T-cells, and nk cells, et al. I hope you don't mind if I tweet that. :)
The important point to take away here is that an even better version of L should provide even better results, soon after L is approved. This technology is truly amazing... and it's just going to get better and better as they figure out ways to improve it.
I remember reading in his initial prospectus that the fund would start "predominantly" with UK companies. Do you think he'd consider NWBO even though they aren't based in the UK? Do you think he'd take into consideration the Sawton purchase shows they intend to have a UK presence? Respectfully, what are your thoughts P?
Agreed on all three... :)
Because your posts read so much better with my name in them.
Nope, you can't assume they were all pseudo. That's the point. They were NOT, by the accepted criteria, pseudo. The criteria evidence (MRIs) for these indefinitive GBM patients leaned to the rapid prognosis, so into the information arm they went. No rapids allowed in the main trial.
Thanks for that armalitem - and the presentation just proved what I was saying. Everything about it makes perfect sense when you know how the trial is structured.
You have to understand that this 55 Info arm is where the sickest of the sick went. They were excluded from the L trial - but their vaccines were already made. After the vaccine was made, they were determined to be the sickest of the sick by MRI scans. So should the company have thrown these patients' vaccines away? No... so they put them into this arm to evaluate how the sickest of the sick do on L - separate from the P3 trial - but still evaluated by the same people, at the same sites, and in the same manner.
I left a four paragraph response to his March 23 comments on NWBO... and they are still there. Google Jim Cramer's Mad Money Recap: 5 What If Scenarios That could Change Markets...
Cart... why is the 0 on a phone after 1 and not before 1? Explain why.
Well bitcoin, maybe a tute would buy calls because they thought the price of the stock was going to go up. That's usually why anyone buys a call. Well, unless they're a short like you and they want to hedge in case the stock price goes up like a rocket. I have to admit, though, that that gives me no comfort. I'd don't want the shorts to have a hedge. Ah well... the mystery of it all. So many mysteries here for me to uncover.
Why, why, why, will it go up tomorrow?
Why will the price keep rising?
No problem... I've discussed this topic several times with some of the guys at Charles Schwab - I meant to call today and get the options desk and see what they had to say about it - but missed that window. I think they leave around 1:30 or 2:00 PST. But I can tell you that every one of them that I've discussed it with are very puzzled by it and are unsure of what to make of it. It was suggested by one that someone wrote the calls first, then bought the puts with the money they made from the calls. I believe I recall that the first set of calls were numbered at around 10 or 11k. That caught a lot of people's attention. One of three institutions could have written those with the shares they hold (as of Dec 31). But I don't see how one could have written all of them as none of them hold that many shares. It's bizarre, to say the least. I'll try to call the options desk tomorrow as I'm told they may have a better take or explanation for it. I personally don't think we can rule out naked calls. Doesn't mean that's what they are... I just think we can't rule them out.
Thank you for that edward - next time, it would be helpful if you did gave us a bit more to go on when you post such an exciting piece of information.
I saw the "strong buy" indicated on the I-hub post that had copied your post - and assumed it was an investor analyst that had posted this.
I see now that it is instead this Michael Beveridge..
Director, Electronic Communications at American Association for Cancer Research
and that he is not recommending a strong buy.
Is he simply posting the abstract? Or was he calling attention to it?
The link to the entire abstract is on the information section of I-Hub under upcoming events.
Now itrizia - you know my idiot comment was not directed at you, right? It was at our little bitcoin short there. So could it have been institutions that are buying these calls as they are an easier way to get a position than buying the stock - if they buy too many shares at once, it'll drive the price up too fast. Just wondering what your honest opinion is on that. :)
Itrizia - let me rephrase it - how about would this be an easier method for funds to access the shares (not retail buyers) because if they buy these kinds of quantities on the open market, it'll drive the share price up too fast?
Itrizia - could it be an easier way for people to access the stock - since there aren't that many shares available without sending up the price?
