    Black, thanks for the reply. If I remember correctly during one of those (disastrous for investors) conference calls Scarlett even said something to the effect that INCY is not the enemy. My worry is that even in the event that any supposed negotiations are taking place between INCY and Geron:: would be that INCY would still gain by having the PPS down where it is now.

    In the event of any sale of Geron, Scarlett and the Board would make out like bandits but us shareholders would still be at the bottom of the list. Still any whiff of a sale would send the PPS dramatically upwards. I don't think anything like this would happen till well into the future when (hopefully) IMET Phase two is underway. So perhaps Scarlett might be keeping things friendly with INCY for negotiation purposes.

    My greatest wish now is for the end of the hold and that the danmnmn Phase II to finally start. Confirmations of CR or PR by this Geron trial would go a long way to convincing fence sitting investors that IMET is the real deal.

    Sentiment: Buy

    Black, do you think Scarlett is trying not to annoy INCY in the hopes that he can work a deal with them?

    Chippy had the "Nads" of Tesla's Musk he would time the Asterias distribution for Tuesday and then simultaneously announce on Tuesday both the full reversal of the FDA clinical hold and the Start of the Phase II Myelofibrosis Imetelstat trial.

    Sentiment: Strong Buy

    I found Asterias Biotherapeutics Inc listed in TD Ameritrade as an OTCBB: with the stock symbol AHRBV.

    I have not received the spin-off shares yet but at least Asterias now is recognized by this broker. LOL the bid is 0.01 and the ask is $100. No volume. The shares out are 6.5 million.

    When Did GERN Know?

    The easily found FDA Protocol about contacting a company and trying to resolve the issue BEFORE issuing a hold is exactly the point I brought up 4 months ago. Some here have incorrectly and pitifully implied that the initial FDA Hold notice phone call to Scarlett was the pre-hold resolution attempt.

    Also, considering that the ET & PV trials were mainly completed and that patients would have to be contacted again for further testing... I correctly surmised that the Hold would be in place for at least 4 months.

    The future of Imetelstat is almost certainly assured due to the complete responses for Myelofibrosis but the dunderheads running the company have placed the timetable for getting Imetelstat to patients that need it at real risk as well as sabotaging investor capital and confidence.

  • With the aging population needing robotic home assistance, tech savvy youth demanding the latest in robotic technology, surging medical costs controlled by telemedicine robots, world business facilitated by tele-presence meetings and 3D printing, and continued escalation of world military tensions coupled with terrorists threats, and the increased need for police, nuclear, and heavy industry to use robotics to probe situations too dangerous for first contact with humans..... IRobot will exponentially surge and quickly obtain a market cap challenging stock company leaders of today. Skeptical? so were most Google investors not that long ago.

    Sentiment: Strong Buy

    Thanks kpail I didn't know that if I sold Geron shares prior to the ex-dividend date my Asterias shares and BTX warrants would be gone also.

    I still remember the year 2000 when the Geron PPS was about $9.50. In a matter of days it soared up to $70. I have no idea of what the percentage of short positions there was at that time but it shows how dramatically Geron stock can move. Presently the 25.53M short shares could be analogous to rocket fuel, especially if the hold is lifted.

    Achillion hold lifted

    Thanks trailblazer. What struck me was the similarity between the reasons for the holds. (some pts showed elevated liver enzymes). Let's hope that it doesn't take nearly a year for Geron's hold to be lifted like it did for Achillion.

    Nice 6+% move today

  • supine_detectum supine_detectum May 21, 2014 9:43 PM Flag

    Go Tesla

    Short term downside now reversing. If Elon Musk were the CEO of Geron he would be changeling the FDA hold in every media outlet and also suing the FDA instead of playing nicey nice and hoping the FDA will see reason and reverse the hold.

    Geron at Merrill Today

    That is what he should tell us. If he was originally brought in to sell Geron to some large Pharma but that plan was changed to bring Imetelstat to market how will Scarlett ever find the financial resources to do that?

    I sincerely hope we never see Imetelstat being divested for pennies of the investor dollar like the hESC is being done now because of a CEO overreaching himself.

    Just my opinion.

  • supine_detectum by supine_detectum May 15, 2014 9:25 AM Flag

    The FDA clinical hold is now two months and 2 days old. !

    Will anything of substance regarding Geron's response to the FDA be said today?

    A vague hope that something will happen is not a great business plan or a way to attract investors. Dr. Scarlett, it's time to show/share what you are doing!!
