I have an issue with Number 2. Selling a stock can affect the share price. It depends on how many shares are being sold and the price they are being sold for. It's very possible to negatively affect the PPS of a stock by just walking the ask down a penny at a time. It takes a good sense of timing and sometimes a coordinated effort by multiple traders but it can be done, especially during slow trading periods.
From LinkedIn: "Karunix is a new start-up developing SNACH, sulfated Non-Anticoagulant Heparin"...
LOL. So Polymedix couldn't get delparantag (supposed to reverse the effect of heparin) to work in humans because of low blood pressure UAE's and now he's the CEO of a company that's supposedly investigating using heparin as treatment for Sickle Cell Disease, and for prevention of tumor metastasis? Does anyone else see the irony in that move?
I wouldn't hire Nic to sweep the floors of my business, let alone to run it.
Uh oh. So Nic has another company to drive into the ground? I wonder how long he'll milk this one? How many investors he'll sucker in? How long it'll take before he's ousted in favor of an inexperienced CFO?
Anyone who invests money into one of his enterprises might as well flush it down the toilet.
Why even argue with the basher (or vote their posts thumbs up/down)? It should be obvious that he/she is a basher like the rest of those whose usernames I will not mention. "Ignore" them and they will go away.
Wow. You are the perfect example of the poor quality of our educational institutions. Not only is your grammar faulty but so is your math.
He's pipesqueak with a better vocabulary. It's obvious someone is trying to beat the share price down and since they have been unsuccessful so far, they are resorting to desperate measures like fake news releases and slanderous statements. As thoughtful investors, we should recognize them for what they are and resist their attempts to control this board.
Then put it that way. Go back and re-read your recent posts. Nowhere did you state that they were only one possible scenario. They read like buyout news has already been released and that the terms are detrimental to shareholders. However you meant them, your posts indicate someone who either has insider knowledge or someone trying to drive down share price.
It is always suspicious when someone who claims to be long goes to such great lengths to post highly inflammatory material which could result in scaring off investors. The first priority of any sane investor is to make money, not to drive down the value of their investment.
And why should we believe you own even one share?
There are many ways to bash. Until now, yours have been a bit more subtle than, say, gnate's or pipsqueak's, but nonetheless your comments are obviously bashing of the highest order. Couching them with statements to the effect that you are a disillusioned long are just another way to make them appear sincere to the target audience.
Your posts smack of desperation. Since you, gnate, chopsuey, tailpipe and toxicsmeller have been unable to beat down the price of ATHX shares by your regular bashing (and I'm not entirely convinced you're not all the same person) I guess you decided it was time to break out the big lie. You know, the one that could get you on the SEC's radar.
Part 3 (final):
So now, after over 10 years fighting in the Middle East with little progress, you want the war to not only continue, but to expand? Your "Big bombs and boots on the ground" will bankrupt the U.S. and its people. To what end? They've been fighting in the Middle East for centuries and will likely continue for centuries more.
Open your eyes!
From a CNN Special Report titled "Why the war in Iraq was fought for Big Oil":
"Before the 2003 invasion, Iraq's domestic oil industry was fully nationalized and closed to Western oil companies. A decade of war later, it is largely privatized and utterly dominated by foreign firms. From ExxonMobil and Chevron to BP and Shell, the West's largest oil companies have set up shop in Iraq. So have a slew of American oil service companies, including Halliburton, the Texas-based firm #$%$ Cheney ran before becoming George W. Bush's running mate in 2000.
The war is the one and only reason for this long sought and newly acquired access.
In 2000, Big Oil, including Exxon, Chevron, BP and Shell, spent more money to get fellow oilmen Bush and Cheney into office than they had spent on any previous election. Just over a week into Bush's first term, their efforts paid off when the National Energy Policy Development Group, chaired by Cheney, was formed, bringing the administration and the oil companies together to plot our collective energy future. In March, the task force reviewed lists and maps outlining Iraq's entire oil productive capacity."
The funny thing is that the Iraqi people are getting very little of the money brought in by Iraq's oil fields. Most of the workers are foreigners. This is despite Iraqi law that money earned from oil production in that country has to be used within that country. In fact, that has been a bone of contention between Iraq's leadership and the U.S. for many years.
I also find it interesting that Big Oil, while pushing the U.S to intervene in the Arab areas so that they can get their own "boots on the ground", have been among the largest offenders in schemes to pay as little tax burden as possible. Many of these same companies have shifted their operational headquarters overseas to avoid paying U.S. corporate taxes, a process known as "Tax Inversion".
Yes, the US has made horrible mistakes, and we are still making them.
We've already spent over ten years fighting in Afghanistan and Iraq, to the tune of $2 trillion added to the national debt. And the cost of those wars will not end when we pull totally out. The U.S has lost 80 M1 tanks, 55 M2 Bradleys, 20 Strykers, 20 M113's, 250 Humvees, over 500 other vehicles, 109 helicopters and 18 fixed-wing aircraft; all of which will need to be replaced. The cost of veterans' continuing medical care alone will likely double that over time. The U.S. is still paying $ billions to veterans of previous wars, including money to families of veterans of the U.S. Civil War - 150 years after it ended.
At this point, even conservative estimates of the total cost of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan is $4 to $6 trillion. And now, you want us to continue, and even expand the wars to neighboring countries? That is what we would have to do to to bring some semblance of peace to the Middle East. What about our so-called "friends" in the region who grow, train and/or harbor extremists? Bin Laden and others hail from Saudi Arabia and hid in Pakistan. Do you want the U.S. to expand the war to those countries too? At what cost?
The U.S. cannot be the world's police, no matter what people like you think. It would be different if other countries would pay their fair share of the cost of keeping the peace but they don't and they never will. Neither do the entities who started us down the road in Iraq and Afghanistan either. The wars in the Middle East are not about humanitarian goals, they're about Big Oil.
