    I'm thinking of starting and investment fund named "Mark XII" (as in, The Parable of the Tenants).

    Do you think that you'd have lots of Jewish investing friends who'd like to buy into that fund?
    You all should, it's the story of the kingdom of all good Hebrews (gone awry).
    Ponder that one while you light your candles. :-)

    WHO said this issue is too speculative

    Sounds more like you're looking for the Ave Maria.
    Not the song. You know, the mutual funds....... Ave Maria.

    But, uh, I just have one question in that. Is "Maria" included in the Torah or even the Pentatuch? I no tink so........ ;-)

    Maybe there is a Jewish mutual fund company which has a line of funds called, "The Caiaphas Funds"? No?
    How about maybe "the judas Iscariot funds"?

    Merry 8 days of military victory, I guess.........

    Please, dman, keep right on shorting.
    There is STILL too much meat on the bones of this piggy.
    Short it down to $2 post split and maybe some nice Chinese company will come along and buy it out for $2.25 cents per share ($0.225 pre-split).
    I'd buy tickets to see that happen...........:-)

    Heplisav can still pass it's PIII alright; but it will never make it to product-hood.
    GSK has everything in place to see to that.

    Funny thing about Fast Eddy and Blair.
    Back in June, Blair portrays DVAX as if it's a growth stock, made sure to get their name in there.
    Then DVAX enacts their 1 for 10 split and it makes it appear as if the share price actually grew from where it was, by 10 bucks.
    Only it wasn't real growth.
    But all of the players in that fast game want it to LOOK like the stock underwent real growth; they want you to think that there was real growth. And of course YOU DO believe that it was real growth. Don't you now?
    Don't you believe it Jack? How about you Ctic? It was real, GENUINE, company driven growth.
    And Earle is the hero and deserves all of the credit. Right?

    Just remember, you're sitting through all of this nonsense which management pulls, and you're condoning it, (silent or otherwise).

    You are JUST ASKING FOR IT. Whatever you're left with, whatever miserable outcomes happen here; you were the ones that asked for it. And you stayed around WAITING for it. :-)

    On June 9th, the lowly Ostrachi announced the Billy Blair dog and pony show in the windy city.
    Eddy went, and with his mighty breath, fluffed up his stock and sector.
    Around June 9th the share price was running around $1.40 per share.
    After the June 11th Blair event, the share price ran up to $1.50 - $1.60, peaking just before the end of June.
    By the beginning of July to mid-July, the share price was already headed toward the $1.30 lows.

    Now fast forward to the NYC (big money) event.
    Your stock was already running up around $1.50 - $1.60 range and almost immediately after the event, she's going down faster than green mush through a goose.

    Eddy is so good at these tricks, he's pulled em' twice this year; and you fell for it both times.
    He probably wishes the calendar were longer, so that he could stick you again with it.
    But, I'm sure that you don't see the pattern. Do you?

    Just remember, you ASKED for this. :-*

    ANY question as to which side of the coin you're on NOW???
    Wait. Let me guess; "this is all just some evil coincidence. Eddie wouldn't do this to us....."
    My, my, just look at how fast that share price went down........sort of, almost, like THEY PLANNED IT.
    I've suspected for a while that your insti friends aren't getting shares to hold and trade up, they're getting shares to short; an they ain't wastin much time doin' it either.
    I KNOW that you'll NEVER admit to seeing this for what it actually is, Jack; but other kids here eventually will.

    Dvax going back down

    by dman4press Dec 15, 2014 11:51 AM
    theblackraven08 theblackraven08 Dec 15, 2014 3:41 PM Flag

    Well, truthfully, the answer to your question is, "it depends on how fast DVAX goes down." And, of course, THAT depends on other factors as well (such as news events and or earnings losses).

    I don't see that this company stock would need another reverse split. That would become like "extra nails in the coffin". The coffin is already pretty much nailed shut, and the trial patient won't be needing to get out.

  • Well forget it. The words, "Dynavax Technologies Corporation" appear NOWHERE in the below quote:

    Pfizer must do something big soon

    Pfizer has already signaled its intent to pursue a major deal via its overture to AstraZeneca earlier this year. Since the deal fell through, this giant in the drug business has reportedly approached Actavis plc, as well, although nothing concrete has come from those talks thus far.

    Pfizer's problem is simple: The company is so large that its newer growth products, like Prevnar, can't move the needle much in terms of EPS. To solve this problem, Pfizer will either need to break itself up to unlock this latent value, or acquire a host of newer products via a buyout.

    Under either scenario, I think a dividend cut will be necessary in order to meet the challenges of such huge moves. Specifically, a breakup could lead to a significant reduction in free cash flow, especially if all its legacy products are sold off in one fell swoop. On the acquisition front, I think Pfizer has its eyes set on a mega merger that could soar into the hundreds of billions, which would obviously require the company to free up some cash.

    Yeah, for the record Kent is right. He and I are not the same. I have one other id and I have made it known here. If you don't know it, if you missed it, too bad. Ask around, I'm sure that someone here can tell you what that id is.
    As for your post, I'm not going to any woodshed because I have no position in this mess any longer. I stopped losing money on this sad POS last Spring and haven't regretted that decision even once, for a second thus far.
    I don't know what makes you think that you've won anything here. You're still at $1.60, there hasn't been any company named as GSK's replacement (still down a partner). So, what did you get? A continuance for a PII into next year, and some new losers which signed on in NY. Big freakin deal.
    Nobody is really recommending this piece of junk. You can't trust Cowen or billy blair or Jefferies; they're shills.
    Let's just see how far all of your brain surgeons get on this by the end of the year......

  • theblackraven08 by theblackraven08 Dec 12, 2014 9:36 AM Flag

    Here is a short handful of $35 stocks.
    These are companies with real products, that the company really sells. And they really have revenue from those products and sales. And they really get rewarded or punished based on how those sales and earnings perform. That is how the real equities market works kiddies.

    ABMD Abiomed $36.78
    ADT ADT Corporation $31.94
    ACOR Acordia Therapeutics $38.29
    BKSH Berkshire Homes $35.00
    OZRK Bank of the Ozarks $36.12

    It has been suggested here that this sad little mess could potentially hit $35 per share in 2016, even BEFORE the company has ANY product.
    I'm calling "baloney on that". Our equities market doesn't reward companies because of fluff and puffery and "potential" of being a blockbuster vaccine. Wall Street is ugly and nasty and it wants "show me the mother loving money" FIRST and foremost.
    If you are mental enough to believe that some second DSMB wave through and a successful PIII equal $35 per share and a ranking with just those few companies which I listed, which scratch and claw their way to profitability everyday, then you are most assuredly in need of some help; and you are living in some cockeyed dreamworld of almost pure fallacy. $35 in 2016, my left aggie.......

    So What's The DVAX Crew Really Doing In NYC?

    theblackraven08 theblackraven08 Dec 12, 2014 8:39 AM Flag

    Let's just see if it happens today. Shall we?
    For the record, I'm going with "no". And in fact, I'll go so far as to say, "No buyout today, or next week, or this month." (regardless of the share price).

    And further still, I guess, I'll stick with, "It's NEVER going to happen". Because it hasn't happened since 2008 or even since 2004.

    And yet, now minus one sponsor.
    Whoring themselves in NY to bring in lemmings like you.
    What's the old saying? "Dazzle them with brilliance"?
    Or they can baffle you with bull......

    You SHOULD run.....don't walk away from this scheme.
    But of course, I'm sure you won't. You've swallowed it, hook line and sinker.
    You think you've stumbled onto the mother-lode; 3 feet from gold, as another here used to say.
    BTW, that investor never struck gold here and now is long gone. Should be telling you something.
    Nevermind, go take your place in line with all of the other fools, you're done........

    You;re really a laugh riot there, studdie.
    Everything is buyout, buyout, buyout with you.
    Like some chasing of the smoke.

    DVAX is in NY looking for money. Doh-rey-mee. Investors (VC or otherwise). They are looking for more of YOU, in fact. People that will buy into the dream which will never come true.
    It's only about money (period), not some clandestined meetings about your fantasies.
    Why isn't AZN buying them outright? (can't find an answer to that one, can you?)
    Why hasn't ANYONE showed up to buy them out, to date? (you'll make up any answer in spite of that possibility)
    With all of that potential, why did GSK walk away and not just buy out DVAX, just to lock it down and keep all of it out of other's hands?

    Think on those questions and you'll come to the same sad answer. "It's never going to happen."

    You can chase all of the smoke you like, and you'll only come away with a mouth full of feathers.

    STILL not regretting my decision to dump this sorry excuse of a company.
