    I did have a house on the market recently.

    Looks like the efforts to contain Ebola on "the dark continent" and off the shores of other civilization, have failed pretty much miserably.
    Now in Africa, America, Spain and 1 case in France , last I heard. Almost 5K dead.

    My bet is that the doofus at the helm of the CDC (friedrich, or "fried-rice") gets canned. He CLEARLY is NOT on top of the situation here in any form and more often than not he inserts foot into mouth at the podium.
    Ebola will get him, but not as an illness casualty; ebola is a bigger problem than he can handle and it's painfully obvious that he is "incompetent below his paygrade".

    It is truly scary to realize how easily this can spread and get out of hand.
    With only a few cases here it's easy to use the blood of survivors to help conquer the problem; but if the number of cases begins to climb there may not be enough survivor blood out there.
    I think that I heard that Kent Brantley fellow (Dr.) has donated over a gallon of blood in transfusions thus far.
    That is actually a lot; most donors cannot donate again for 8 weeks from any donation.
    I figure that they are bending the rules there for his case (to save others), but he has to be careful, because donating too much does take a toll on the body, in terms of fatigue.

    Hopefully, they (health regulatory people) can keep this in hand for all of our sakes. May God be with us all here in this dangerous time.

    A sad story from the naked city.
    If it happens to you, "don't be like that version of Rob Lowe" (from a Dish commercial).
    THINK, BEFORE, you sell:

    Can anyone help us? My wife and I have an account with Tradestation for day trading and options trading. This morning I got up and started the computer and logged into Tradestation. Being a day trader and options trader, I saw that EGLE was up a ridiculous percentage. I immediately went and checked to see that we had 3000 shares! I immediately began selling at almost any price I could get and went to tell the wife that we could celebrate. When the market opened I went to look and they showed that we were now 2500 shares short . I called them and they said it was my problem, and that I should read the news. When something like this happens, shouldn't a company who want the business of day traders to keep their clients accounts updated for when the pre-market opens. I see where they made the changes at 9:15 am

    Don't forget: "He called them and they said it was HIS problem" (owing the shares back that he no longer had).
    Don't be like that sad version of Rob Lowe........

    An American dry bulk shipper; big boats; like Dry Ships (DRYS) or Diana Shipping (DSX), based in NY.
    They had been struggling, the stock was like, at 10 cents to no more than $1.50 in recent days.
    Same old, same old. This morning, investors woke up to EGLE being UP some ridiculous number like 1500% - 2000%. Many thought that they had struck it rich, "3 feet from gold" and on and on.

    So the morning news was EGLE halted around 9:30-10:30AM for news. No news for hours.
    The most recent news had been that EGLE's management had been granted a BK on restructuring which they had filed for.

    In true form, the "management" released the news in afterhours of their restructuring and investors ended up waking up to the reality that their "struck it rich" had become BOHICA (bend over, here it comes again!).
    No salvation.
    Reverse split to the tune of like 1 share for 100 or 200 or 300.
    Some investors had told tales of having like 3000 shares (yesterday) and later today, 30 shares.
    No celebration, no party; just big OUCH,
    The rats found a way to stay alive once again.
    I've never understood how that kind of thing can survive; these shipping companies with giant ships and tiny stock prices. The ships SHOULD be worth more than the stock price or the company, but I suppose that they DEBT on the ships factors in there somewhere as well.

    Anyways, there is another example of what you might see happen here. R/S locked and loaded; you wake up one morning and think that you're less than "3 feet from gold". "Struck it rich!" Booze cruise and celebration!
    Well, guess again.

    Keep an eye on EGLE and just watch what happens to that $15 stock price of today.
    I bet that before the end of the year, they are much closer to $1 than $20.........

    Who says it was kent, besides you?
    There are, after all, A LOT of other people playing with the shares of this (but I'm NOT one of them).
    There are potentially thousands (or more) people and entities that could be administering the poison which you focus on, all the way up to the very management itself.
    If they "do it" is it still considered, "poison" (or maybe corporate holy water)?

    It seems like today's developments might not be viewed as such good news. Down in the AM, then up and down again to the close. On the day, up only a penny on (pretty much) average volume.
    Not exactly such great response to, yet another, trial kick off. A 2 year study for 25 people? Why?
    Why, why, why? That could be a lot of money sunk into a trial, and for........?

    Yup-ers, brother. You get it, you see it; and, clearly, it seems.

    He can throw away those 25,000 shares (at a loss) without even a sneeze.
    Grey was a GSK insider, at a high level for years and years and years; like he is REALLY concerned about being some "top CEO" in the world. The man was, like, Andy Witty's comb for a really long time (riding around in Witty's back pocket). After GSK experiences like that, how much more would being a CEO of some insignificant, struggling, little vaccine company (which is ultimately going over Niagara Falls without a barrel) really open "new" doors for him.
    He certainly hasn't acted like he is some ground-breaking, historical CEO in the time which he has been piloting this motorless dingy. (more like a care-tender to a ward of human vegetables) Ha!

    Well, rxther, You see things here that many others aren't. You must not have your head buried in the rosy sands of Earle Grey beach. That's refreshing to see around these parts.

  • We ALL know that this stock, at it's particular price level is easy to "game".
    This AM, we have 200 paltry shares which have been thrown in on the pile and have raised the PPS, premarket, to $1.48.

    Is that supposed to exemplify the value of Dino's departure? 200 shares?
    Or is it more about making it look like some AM market jump of 3 cents on the PPS?

    I'm sure that dino would like to believe that his departure is worth more than 200 measly, stinking, shares.
    Heavens! What ever would that do to the price per bottle of his overrated, skunk urine?

    Whatever. Like I wrote, who truly cares?
    200 shares for a 3 cent price move in premarket ONLY adds up to early morning attempts at "tape painting".
    Otherwise, this sad little thing is still in the same purgatory which it has been in post the Daum debacle.

    It's always worth "something" when the "bad guy" exits the picture for a company.
    Just look at Chesapeak Energy as an example. That guy, McClendon, was pretty bad, but Dino was not as bad as him.
    The "data point" really ISN'T that significant, I don't think. If Dennis Carson or the Earle of Grey had made some "move", it would more likely have been more significant.

    As you say, "IF it happens..." ; IF (small word with huge ramifications).
    For the record, DVAX went into the $1.30 range and the mother ship acted like it didn't even know that DVAX existed.

    As usual, we'll see. Thanks for thinking of me.

    That seems to be what you are always seeing, "A sell or merger deal in the works...."

    Yet, somehow, a sell or a merger NEVER seems to come. How COULD that be?
    Always some secret negotiations which never materialize into anything concrete.

    In all honesty I neither care nor really want to put forward a reason for his leaving.
    He was good at some point for the company, but poisonous to his shareholders in the end.
    It's all lost money under the bridge; more good after bad. Who REALLY cares?

    Que sera, sera.

    I'm sure his leaving is worth some value, but only as much as he would have been able to steal or get for free from the company over the period of time he sat on the board.

    He is still cursed by me; and all that he touches and his progeny as well.
    May nothing be successful for him going forward, until he has made full restitution to all of those that he wronged in his past as a corporate, medical, pirate.

    Hope you got what you were looking for in this........

    But dino DID MOST CERTAINLY screw ALL of his shareholders (in the entirety) by not making some last ditch deal with GSK on Heplisav, in the wake of the VRBPAC panel back in 2011-2012.

    He let all of his shareholders go under the bus (and his company), but he MADE SURE to make some deal to set himself up on the BOD for the last two years, while "collecting on it", all the way.

    He might have been important to many parts of the founding and development of Dynavax, but, in the end, he gave it all away for mostly nothing and should have protected his shareholders far better than he did. Unfortunately, the "other guy" who was also a founder, seems to not give a care what happens to his creation here. Sad.

    Good riddance to dino; he leaves cursed, and only has curses as his "farewell".

    You'll probably get your beer money. Remember, just be careful.
    Remember that guy "bluehorseshoelovesDVAX"?
    Remember how he used to like to write, "three feet from gold"
    I wonder what ever happened to him? Did he get lost in the mine?

    Well good luck to you; I'd never sink any money into this again. I don't trust my luck and I surely don't trust "them".
