    26% of volume shorted today

    by thebasiles777 22 hours ago
    snogreen snogreen 11 hours ago Flag

    that UTC site is no real help. Yes, it seems they have some kind of inbvestment in what is now called G Tree, but they bought in when it was a computer, motor and TV company called Digital Aria. The UTC website has not been updated since 2012....it is three years old. And according to tehe site info, the last investment they made was in 2001.....four years ago.

    We don't know if this UTC entity even exists today. If they did, why is their website 3 years out of date and last investment listed was 2011. We don't know when they got into Digital Aria...nor how much they bought..or how much they paid...or own.......if any...nothing is disclosed.

    It is not that hard to understand. People that held when RGRX printed 4 cents didn't sell then. But they see a 27 cent print and they just said, enough. they didn't puke at 4 cents, but maybe 27 cents a different story. And the market has good gains around and they use losses in RGRX. they didn'tsell 4 cents, but some took 27 cents.

    the KEY here is volume. It has to stay high, because it indicates significant interest probably by a large fund/investor. if volume dries up, so will interest and this higher price. if volume stay very high, they are still anxious to own. the other key is if we hope that someone get's to 5 million shares and files a 13-D. That is the day dream. Focus on VOLUME..not if RGRX is up or down 2 cents.

    I think it is today or tomorrow. SEB usually gives out way after market close. They should be okay numbers - when all combined. Pork division will be down from previous.....pork prices way down. But grain prics low, which offsets somewhat. At end of Q3, SEB was short hog futures, 23 million pounds worth...so a bit of a hedge. But oil price collapse will boost profit in electric generator barge in DR......pretty large too. And oil collpase I think will finally put Seaboard Marine ship division profitable......there may be a real big surprise in those numbers - because that division has lost money for a bunch of years now. And GREAT news is that SEB knows how to hedge, so they can go out up to a few years of locking in low oil if they like.

    I still think other things are brewing in SEB. Fidelity keeps buying and buying..they own about 6%. And the controller for SEB just "retired" after 19 years. why? I don't think he was fired. But he is only 53, so he can't be "retiring" either. but SEB wants him till March 31. From what I can tell, this guy did not have a "change of contriol" contract payout. And he probably just got his bonus. if there is a deal, he is thrown to the wind with no payout. Wonder if that is why he leaves....only 53.

    I never invested at $3 RGRS, a total lie. I have some $2 stock, yes. My basis is 0.55 cents now. Okay? don't lie. Second? As to posting before the volume kick in by me? WHAT IS I POST WAYEARLY TODAY? THIS:

    " Only thing that may change things is if Finkel can get some investor interest from big investment funds..as I said, Randal Kirk would be my no#1 pick to get TB 4 info to."

    So, dope. I stated clearly that the only thing that could change......outside of the trials we know will not start for many, many months.is IF Finkel can get a big investor interested in RGRX play. HOW AM I SUPPOSED TO KNOW IF ANYONME IS INTERESTED BIG? Dope. Again, I said:

    "Only thing that may change things is if Finkel can get some investor interest from big investment funds..as I said, Randal Kirk would be my no#1 pick to get TB 4 info to."

    I have NO idea if Kirk is interested. I stated CLEARLY that it is only a DAY DREAM from me. But I said the only thing that can change RGRX price is if a big entity starts buying. Again, I have NO insider knowledge if such buyer comes, but I said if it came it woudl change things. A buyer came today.

    GOD you can't read. You are blind.

    you better study the patent site. I do not think there will be a reply to a rebuttal by RGRX lawyers..by the USPO examiner....for a couple months at least.maybe more. Sometimes they take longer. but I darn sure know it won't be like in a week and his decision is already made. because the USPO guy is going have to suck his own wind and admit he is wrong and defeated...from ALL his other previous reasons for rejection of it. Trust me, the USPO folks do not "cry uncle" and admit their errors..easily or quickly.

    volume before price, but great to see

    by snogreen Feb 25, 2015 4:12 PM
    snogreen snogreen Feb 25, 2015 4:48 PM Flag

    I'm not sure how soon we'll find anything out. Day dream is some well known and respect fund/institution files that they own over 5%. But they would need to have about 5,000,000 shares to do a 13-D.....we are no where near close to that for volume. I don't think any news from dr. Chopp at HF anytime soon either. All I hope is the VOLUME stays up.....I don't care if we are up 3 cents or down 3 cents on it...we need volume.

    I am REALLY curious how the MM's reacted today with short offers to cap RGRX. Worked every other day for years and years :)...show 200K shares and down she goes. But I bet most of it was long selling. There was also enough activity that it may have attracted some compter and algo traders. We REALLy want them around, because they provide the liquidity and size for funds or people lik Kirk to buy.

  • Always volume before price....just what RGRX needs. I don't care about 2 cents...Some may look and see that RGRX getting the Israeli heat patent was cause? RGRX has never moved before on any patent getting news. But who knows. Maybe someone in israel is interested in doing a TB 4 heart deal....but the deal stopper was that RGRX had no IP in Israel. Who knows.

    I don't think it Israel related. I think Finkel may have (however unlikely from his past 25 years history) hooked a big fish wanting a good stake. It is not Koreans. They refused ti exercise option for 5.5 mill shares at 0.15. It isn't Sigma Tau, unless they file they bought within 2 more days. It is not management buying, and it isn't this board buying that size. so who is it? day dream, I've said.would be Randal Kirk....but that's a long shot. we are months and months away from any trial starting, or results. dr. Chopp at HF is out there, but he has no money. Logical route is he goes for NIH funding, as he has for 6 years now on TB 4. File January, peer review early summer, grant decision early Oct. but bull thinks otherwise? Quote "...as I believe heart movement will be a function of Dr. Chopp's activities which I do not think are as delayed as Sno believes and trial commencement in Q3-before then.........." I do think news of HF and Dr. Chopp doing a TB 4 trial in near woudl give RGRX a pop. he's too well known and respected in the field for all the bio funds to ignore him them.and his 6 years pre clinical work. Hope you are right bull.

  • God, you are on a tangent of blind reading today. I stated that Koreans will need $25 to $30 million for USA TRIALS. YOU are the one making it up as you go... that the $25 - $30 million is for ALL trials by Koreans. Please read the RGRX release more carefully, it it they CLEARLY STATE this:

    "We estimate that the cost for development of RGN-259 for NK and dry eye syndrome in the U.S. is $25 - $30 million "

    GOT IT NOW? G Tree will also have to pay for all KOREA trials, plus the consultants they probably hire..plus they said they brought on bio staff. aLl that coudl easily get to $10 million..so you look at up to a possible $40 million G Tre needs.

    G Tree is a $3.70 stock with 18 million shares outstanding. Only way they get $40 million CASH is to sell stock! So the logical things is for G Tree to PUMP up their share price as much as possible before selling stock. I stated that is the dump. but a good dump, because money goes to trials and not mgmt pockets.

    Why are you so fixated. Nothing is going to happen for months. Lee's trial not starting anytime soon...nor is any Korea trial.....nor is any US Eye NK orphan trial.....nor is a USA dry eye. You are looking at earliest end of 2015 for any possible trial results, but far more likely into 2016. RGRX said that!!! I think a possibility that Henry Ford does a small neuro trial, but HF needs money. My guess is they applied for an NIH grant to do a small one. Grant app is mid January....peer review sometime early summer. Grants awarded late Sept or early October. So it is what it is..and RGRX will just float. MM's see no real volume follow thru. So they offer stock. Only thing that may change things is if Finkel can get some investor interest from big investment funds..as I said, Randal Kirk would be my no#1 pick to get TB 4 info to. But 20 plus years of Finkel history says he is not very good at that stuff.

    Yahoo screwed up my previous post and took out the quotes. Here is again in full

    You don't read very well, blinders on? I NEVER said that they needed $25 to $30 million for KOREA trials. YOu stated this: "where does it say the $25-30 mil doesn't cover the Korean trials.".when in truth what I posted was THIS:.. ".because they don't have the cash on hand..needed to even think of spending $25 to $30 million for US trials.". got it? I got the $25 to $30 million for US TRIALS right from the RGRX PR.

    NEXT? You state this: "Or the fact that g-tree was selling shares... how do I always miss the things you report back to us as fact..."

    ONCE Again, it is NOt what I said! ....I said: "... but the money they raise by selling stock (just my prediction they will sell) goes into trials."

    SO? I never stated as FACT that G Treee is selling stock. I stated it is my PREDICTIOn that they will have to sell stock to raise $25 to $30 million for USA trials. The only way I see raisng $25 to $30 million for USA trials...PLUS how many millions they need for Korea trial..is to sell equity, and it is wise for them to get their stock up (called a PUMP) as high as possible to do so with less dilution. G Tree has 18 million shares out...it is a $3.70 stock I do not see where they have access to $40 million CASH to do all Korean and USA trials.

  • G Tree is getting some kind of attention in Korea. It isn't all buyers, appears there has to be sellers, because the swings are very wide. It closed at 4,225 KW (korean won). It opens at 4,300. the high was 4,605.......the low was 4,055...the close was 4,195.

    So that is a days swing of 650 KW....and on the share price that is s days swing of 15%. 15% swing up and down is pretty big.

    The volume was 652,000 shares. which is a lot considering there are only 18 million outstanding..and I am sure mgmt/insiders owns a ton of that 18 million already. So the float probably isn't that big. So 652,000 is a lot of stock to trade. And it was not all buyers, there were sellers too.

    "1" korean Won is worth $0.0009 US Dollar...so close price of 4,195 Won, equals $3.77 a share US.

    I mentioned to geez a few weeks ago that the stock to buy is G Tree.........Because they will have to "pump" the heck out of it to get the price up, because they don't have the cash on hand..needed to even think of spending $25 to $30 million for US trials. That does not include Korea costs. Good ole Geez checked w/ his broker, and foreigners are not alliowed in the market.. I didn't know that. But G Tree is doing what I thought.....it is the "pump" before the "dump". but in this case the 'dump' side is not so bad...they are 'pumping' G Tree to get it up to where they do a stock sale.....that's the 'dump'. But the good news is that the money isn't going into mgmt's pockets, but the money they raise by selling stock (just my prediction they will sell) goes into trials. So I expect a big push by G Tree and "talk up" of all kinds of wonders of the miracle of TB 4...in Korea..to get the stock up. One other good thing is that there have been quite a number of Korean research abstracts done in several other areas, with TB 4. So Koreans will see that. I think G Tree has18 million shares outstanding......not that many. So they can get it up. If it trades 500,000 in a day, with only 18 million out.....indicates some churning.

    Bull....... you say, "what are you giving the Company to extend your warrants-good will?"

    Not the case. remeber the warrants are exerciseable at 0.56 cents. I believe there are 4.7 million of them. if RGRX extends the warrant life, RGRX stands to see the possibility the stock is above 0.56 cents. At that time? then people exercise the warrants and buy 4,700,000 shares at 0.56 cents each. RGRX then pockets $2,632,000.00.... extending the warrants gives RGRX a chance at raising $2.632 million if stock rises. Don't ned a banker, pribate placement or PIPE deal.. if they let them expire, RGRX has no shot of that, and shareholders lose thie warrant investment. RGRX mgmt has NEVER had a qualm about doing any kind of dilutive financing......PIPE or other wise. extending the warrants woudl be fair.........it would help shareholders.....and even if exercised....RGRX stands to get $2.632 million if stock is above .56 on perhaps later expiration date.

    I guess that is a "no"..you don't own any warrants that expire soon. Others do. Don't forget it is shareholders that pay Finkel's way..and shareholders took it up the butt.....for many years....the PIPE deals, etc... and amassive dikution to do it....Finkel collected salary and free options....and they change the terms of their converts......but shareholders suffered. The right thing to do is extend the warrants for one more year. Fair is fair. Finkel extended converts for himself, do same for Bo and Geez. I don't own any.....but bo and geez desereve to be treated same as Finkel treats himself....extend them.

    Chopp has always gotten his funding largely from the NIH. I checked the NIH grant process......it started in leat January for filing deadlines for $ requests. Since they funded all his earlier work on TB 4 neuro...if he is ready for a small phase 2 TB 4 neuro...logic says he is asking the NIH for a couple milliion to do so. Review of grants come mid summer and announcement of winning grants comes late sept or early Oct. So don't expect any news on neuro until late Fall.

    thats a funny one. If you own warrants, why aren't you concerned that mgmt changes their dates on converts, but leave YOu hanging in the wind. hmm? You have about 130 days left for any value. I/m posting this stuff because we know Finkel reads this board. I am fighting for warrant holders....if that is you? i'm on your side. So if Finkel reads this board, why aren't you letting him know how you feel? what's good for the goose, isn't good for the gander (warrant holders)? That's an unfair one-way-street.

    My question was pretty straightforward. Is that "narcissism?" So let's try one more time:

    Do you post under multiple different names (handles)? if so, why?

    You are entitled to opinion. REALLY! but if you are so insistent that RGRX is going back to 0.10 cents and RGRX is at 0.23 cents........why aren't you shorting it to make $$$ on a 50% drop in RGRX price?

    I don't think there are any grounds for a class action suit...just because RGRX does not extend the warrant life by a year. The warrants had it clearly and legally spelled out to buyers when they end. So Finkel won't be swayed by a lawsuit threat. But what I DO hope happens is that Finkel "does the right thing"...and extends the warrants. I don't own any, so I am not biased. But I know some folks here do own them, and probably quite a few. the real issue for Finkel Tinkel is ....if any new investors climb on board...or look closely into to doing so.... It looks REALLY bad that Finkel (et al)..pad themselves with free options, year after year........and they also bought a convert. But if the timeline on the convert get's too close, mgmt takes care of THEMSELVES and extends the time. But shareholders? Sorry, you're screwed.Finkel will extend their converts..but let's shareholders drown in the warrants. THAt would look REALLY bad for mgmt. Risky for Finkel. Just imagine, Finkel get's another shot at a Wall Street conference - to present. At the end is Q&A. And what if the FIRST QUESTION to him is "Why did you pad yourseives by extending YOUR convert terms, but screw shareholders by not doing same with their warrants?. "Why should we invest with you?". From then on, all listeners to his presentation would have a jaded opinion. Finkel dug himslef a hole that would be hard to explain his way out of. He wins, you lose.

    Do the right thing, Finkel....extend the warrants by one year. Even if it risks diluting ME, and I don't own any.
