The company knows it is worth a lot more than that. I would expect the guys at Inovio to fight something like that with every weapon, even if it meant a poison pill, which for the record I am usually against. I strongly believe that Inovio will eventually see its share price pop to the 40 dollar range and perhaps get to the 100 dollar range during the eventual phase three trials of the flu vaccine. My humble opinion based on research and homework. Cheers.
I'm sitting here in Fort Collins Colorado, under the nine inches of snow we got today, drinking a hot buttered rum. Thank Trader Vic and Bacardi. I'm beginning to think the earth shifted on its axis and no one told us because we received all of our seasonal drought and Rocky Mountain Fire fighting fighting snow in april and may. Yeah it is Colorado and we are famous for our spring snows but this is ridiculous. Everything I shoveled turned into an instant ice roll , heavy stuff . Yeah I know get a snow blower,, doesnt really work too good with this wet snow, clogs up the snow blower every few seconds. Some smart student at CSU needs to invent a snow blower for wet heavy snow that doesn't clog. Still it doesn't compare to when I lived in Utah and had five feet of icy snow mass in my yard until mid-April. The snow plow driver used to plow the ice rolls right back into my drive way after I shoveled out the drive way. I flipped him off one day and he just smiled. A-- hole. At any rate stay long INOVIO Don't get washed out with the penny stock traders who need to bail on market down turns because they have money invested for trades they should be using for rent or those dreaded millionaire penny stock traders who regularly try and supply bashing fears for their trades. Inovio's technology is solid and it is the future STAY LONG my friends. You WILL be rewarded. Cheers to my long Inovio believers,, the smartest group in the trading universe. Hurrah! Have to go refresh my hot buttered rum now. I apologize for any trypo's ,, its the rum my friends.
For what its worth, there will be many smaller catalysts for Inovio but my belief is the the grand daddy of all catalysts will happen when the flu vaccine comes to market. based on past research and homework, I believe that the flu vaccine alone would propel the share price to the 40-100 dollar per share range.
I haven't posted here for awhile. I'm still long Inovio. Anyone who is worried about the ups and downs and the occasional bashing article or post, don't sweat it. Inovio has become a penny traders dream stock due to the high beta, (which is also a result of penny stock traders) and the ability to twist the facts, an unfortunate part of a company like this. Stay long and you will be rewarded. The penny traders will miss the eventual gargantuan pop to the upside as they try and salt and pepper the facts to get their penny trades on. They will all wish they had remained long with this company. Cheers.
Lucky for you companies do not take stock blogs seriously. Your bashing game is as old as the internet. You are living the past. If you wrote this garbage on any web sight or other venue that was taken seriously, you would be getting your balls broken in court as they sued you for slandering their brand.
O.K. technically speaking, anytime a company goes to the market with shares it is supposed to be dillutive. However I have been invested in a few micro-caps in the past whose total outstanding shares went from 100 million to 700-900 million. That is called real dillution. This share dispersal by Inovio is a mere drop in the bucket. There will be forthcoming grants and other sources of capital, I am sure. This technology is too valuable for the bigger partners like Merk to let it go without injecting some financial help in one way or another. This new share offering it a pittance, a flea on the backside of an ant, it is so small in the total outstanding shares scheme of things that it is entirely laffable for so many to be so worried about it that they have just sold their recently acquired shares for a loss. It is typical, unseasoned trader psychology to buy a stock that is on the move up and sell it at a loss on stupid meaningless news.
people, people Dr Kim seems to be the right guy at the right time. He has a lot of skin in the game. He knows what he is talking about. The best way forward for a company is to have a founder, with lots of monetary and reputational skin in the game who understands the technology that is being developed. That is Dr. Kim. This is a micro-cap company.When the company becomes a small or mid-cap valued company is when the change needs to happen. The guy who was booted obviously has personal issues over the fact and thinks only he knows what is best. Typical disgruntled ex-member.
I had wondered about the fda's fast track mechanism myself. I did some research and found out that fast tracking a drug to market is usually only for the final stages of development to help cut through the final red tape for something that will most likely get the green light.,. ALTHOUGH, it would make complete sense for them to rethink the usual method in light of any potential pandemic. They are the government and the rules and methods can be changed to deal with fast moving challenges to public health and safety.
As with all stocks trading under 2 dollars, this stock has the attention of many penny stock day traders who make their money by pumping and dumping. Anytime a micro cap goes to the market for funds, it is the opportunity these day traders are waiting for. Look at the actual numbers and more importantly,, own this company because of their ground breaking technology. This companies technology will be the envy of all vaccine companies within the next two years. Let the day traders make their meager profits and let those who think they are going to make some quick money but end up flushing their investment on stupid, inconsequential news like todays get out. It only brings in a lower price to buy more. There is absolutely no way that this companies technology will not reap rewards for those long term investors within the next two years. The news of Inovio going to the market for funds is so non- threatening that only those who panic and sell on the lows, losing money in the process, are the ones who get hurt. Don't be a sucker who trades for losses on meaningless news.Thats what the day traders are counting on as they sell at the days peak and buy back at the next few days low. Inovio has minimal outstanding shares compared to a bucket load of micro-caps. Todays action as they went to the market should be viewed as meaningless by those who really study the company, Cheers!
This action today was expected and it is by no means anything to worry about. The total stock/shares outlay for the company is remarkably small for similar micro-caps who go to the market for capital. Focus on the technology and the way it will change the over-all disease fighting and treatment industry. This action today did nothing more than create a wash out of day traders and bring us a much lower buy price.
using the body's immune system to fight and treat disease is the thrust of what vaccinations are. Inovios synthetic dna vaccines are the leading edge of the absolute best way to trigger the immune system to prevent, treat and as has been shown in their trials, potentially kill disease with out the side effects of chemicals. The world is running short on chemical cures and treatments traditionally found in remote places and laboratories to perform these disease treating and killing functions. Chemical treatments have very often caused so many adverse and even deadly side effects that it has been wondered whether it was the disease that killed or the chemical compounds used in treatments and 'cures'. Hypothetically speaking. even if none of Inovios dna vaccines ever made it to market as the 'sole' treatment for any specific disease, they will certainly be marketed as 'co' treatments', to be used in conjunction with other treatments. This is because the body's immune system is the most powerful and side effect free way to fight disease. The only thing is the immune system has to be triggered with enough power and specific targeting to accomplish all of this. Inovio has been succesful thus far and will be even more successful in the future.
Those bashers who continually claim something is wrong with Inovios clinical trials simply do not know what they are talking about. Inovio is always recruiting new patients for trials, even as they are on-going. Most micro-small cap pharma companies do this. The pump of adxs which a basher of Inovio helped to blow up was successful for those pump and dump penny traders who commonly do this type of thing to scare people out of their long term investments and into their 'next big thing,, better hurry its going to sky rocket!!!!! Dont buy these pump and dump arguments it will only cost you money and health problems. If you are trying to penny trade Inovio,,you should probably look elsewhere for an investment that you will be able to put your money in and sleep at night. Inovio will have its ups and downs, probably stay in a higher average range from here on. Bottom line is Inovio will cause a paradigm shift in its business, they have a broad pipeline already with outstanding reviews on their technology and work from industry peers and they will make you a lot of money when the time comes for wall street to braodly see what is happening and get greedy. cheers.
