The old "put me on ignore if you don't like me, I do what I want!" school of debate. Reminds me of Cartman when he went on Ricki Lake.
But the upside is immense to be sure and there should be since you're introducing a second variable (time) into your investment.
I dislike options except as a hedging mechanism. I prefer to hold the stock that way if the stock fails to perform to expectations in the target timeframe, I hold the stock at least and can decide whether to sell or continue to ride it.
I'd have to ignore 90% of the board. You can ignore 1 troll easily. But ignoring the 30 people flinging red meat at the troll means you don't read any posts. Call me an optimist but I'd like to thing at least some of those people have something relevant to say once in awhile.
The opportunity cost has to sting a little, but you're green and never be disappointed in a gain.
It's all there in the PRs, SEC filings, and Seeking Alpha articles. Generally a good idea to check into some of those sources before plunking down money.
Sure, they're free to take a fat dump and destroy whatever vestiges of value this board once had for information-sharing. It astounds me that with the Internet being in everyone's homes for 20 years at this point that there are people out there that still haven't learned how to handle a troll. When you engage a troll like they are you're actually having the opposite effect that you think you're having. You think you're fighting the good fight and educating potential new investors. You're educating them alright: that Geron longs are idiots.
They're free to do it, but not free from the consequences of looking like fools.
Just to be clear, I'm not talking about debate over the merits of GERN as an investment. But all the garbage "BWA HAH AHA! Go eat ice creams!" and "I'm on my yacht drinking endangered albino tiger blood" and "You said $4 and it only went to $4.05!" and "I shorted at the high and covered at the low every day for 7 months straight!" is lame and makes you all look like idiots. If I was a new investor, I'd wonder what kind of dummies invest in GERN.
It's like you people never encountered one before. Keep throwing him red meat, what do you think is gonna happen? Be nice to find good information here without wading through hundreds of posts between Larry and the rest of you idiots.
Hang tight I expect first infusion to happen this month or next at latest. We're dealing with seriously sick people here. The longer JNJ waits to infuse, the sicker they will be and the more unlikely to get a benefit from IMET.
I suspect the market will react as it learns trial is now recruiting. But boy, Geron doesnt do itself many favors. I do recall Someone from the company saying it will issue a PR once the first patient is infused. Shouldnt be long.
You're teamed up with the largest healthcare company on Earth. You are making a capitalistic bet here that JNJ can squeeze massive profits out of IMET.
Those FINRA numbers do not mean what you think they mean. Otherwise we'd be up to eleven billionty shorts by now. As has been explained many times, only the first half of any transaction is records. If a market maker sells your shares a few milli-seconds before buying them from you, it counts as "short volume" since technically the shares were sold by someone who did not own those shares yet.
