My new pal has lost his way. Imagine your entire investment theme is based on the fact that other companies were acquired over the weekend and not this company! LOL. I've tried to help him but he is just too smart. He knows everything there is about viral loads but he can't read a stock chart. He says he will short ACHN at 16, but would not ride the stock up 15% to get to the 16! Wow. I mean some people you just can't help, as much as you try. Now, he looks on with horror as ACHN continues its move to new highs....
I just clicked on my name, pretty embarrasing... 5900 posts since 2000. Wow, and I've had a few other names on different boards... Some of my other names got pretty famous...seriously. I pretty much took down a few small cap biotechs, several years ago... but hey...I'm a yahoo twit...like the rest of us...
Thanks Magnam. My posts tend to be aggressive and/or funny, depends on your mood. Anyhoo, I own everything... Click on my name and you can see my posts going back like 15 years. I came here to make money! ACHN has everything one would want- a cure for a major disease, a low market compared to where it might go in one single news release, a potential takeover candidate, a good looking chart and the perception of greatnes..
Why would anyone put Smelky on ignore. I'm the biggest bull here, and I don't want to brag, but I'm sure my vested interest in the calls are substantially larger than everyone here combined! lol.
27 million in sales. Wow. Management of this organization needs to look in the mirror, admit they have destroyed every shareholder and resign in disgust. Including that moron CEO. Rafeld chose not to do a reverse split, thinking the market would care that the "new" assay test would gain FDA approval. Ha. She is qualified to manage a 7-11, at best. And to boot, she owns no shares. Sell the company.
Magnam, with all due respect, have you ever disclosed your background? You seem to know a lot of the science here, and since I'm a latecomer, I don't want to offend you by asking your background. Respectfully, Smelk.
There is a twitter feed dedicated to a 4 week hep C cure. Gilead gets 80K to give a patient one pill a day for 12 weeks. In 15 months, Gilead will get 95K to give a patient one pill a day for 4 weeks. They will charge more for fewer pills. Tweetering and trending.
There are only 45 people working at this company, and they are all scientists working on cures. Do any of these scientists know how to barge into a doctor's office and convince them to use this drug in their treatment? Do any of these scientists know how to market the drug for TV spots and magazine ads. Do they have the manufacturing skills to ramp up the drug for 10% of the population that suffers NASH? UMMMM, no. ICPT will be swallowed whole within 90 days.

the shorts tried to turn this at 12.27 and lost. A massive buy order blew this out to the upside. What everyone needs to remember is that there are 13million new shares working to move this stock higher. All of the new institutions and old ones that added, are now engaged to move this back above 16 dollars. You cannot fight this force. This will move to 16.50 with certainty. You can get on my back or watch in horror.

lol. That's true. The less you know the better off you are. Take my new pal Bergy, for example. This bloke knows the logs, the delays, the virals, the this and the that, yet he sits on the sideline, with horror on his face. Meanwhile, this smelky_kid shows up and his calls are up close to 25K. I plan on making 250K on these ladies. When I finally sell, maybe I will read the company's profile...
I may not know about HEP C but I do know about secondaries... There will be no dumping and ACHN will head to new highs. Anyone that thinks the new shares will be unloaded knows very little about the market.
lol. Im feeling good about this stock... I'm loaded up now in the Jan. 2016, 15's. I wish I could say that I know more about Hep C stuff but for some reason, that drug area doesn't excite me. If I could pick your brain, Gild and Abbvies drug are for exactly how many weeks and what is the landscape besides ANCH for a shorter treatment. Also, ACHN seems to have a bunch of drugs with different numbers. I can't keep track of them but assume that they are all related in some way... Do they have better side affect profiles?
You don't have to respond if you don't want to. I know I've asked a lot...
And say the following: in 3 months, Bank of America and Ambac will settle. And within 45 days of this settlement, Ambac will be acquired by Assured Guaranty(AGO).
I am writing this simply so I can refer back to this post....
Keep repeating this. Cause that's how we move to new highs....How could it be that the only independent player just might have a 4 week cure..... Say it. repeat it. say it.

And wow, I garnered 12 thumbs down! anyway, I think all of the sellers have been washed out and we move back above 40 in the next 3 weeks.
Thanks for your support.
i did it again! No one is forced to log in and post on a board they rarely post on because I couldn't take the stock performance... and that my friend is the true predictor of the bottom for me... Right after I posted that, I started accumulating the Jan. 16, 30's calls. You can thank me later.
I know that you may have been here since about 3 bucks, but I'm taking over here. I appreciate your input from time to time, but I have decided to move this to 16 bucks on my own. Keep up the good work, and consider this a tap-out from the old bruno semartino Wresting matches...
