  • Just ask yourself one question: How often during your entire life has a anonymous person ever wanted to help you protect your money? If the answer is never, which for most folks it is, then you would be far better off relying on the information of experts, professionals, and industry eicons that actually have their names attached to their views rather than dubious aliases such as found on this mb. Due your own diligence!!!!!!!!

    No one is suggesting that there is not risk of failure. CYCC however has progressed into Phase 3 and Phase 2B with very promising prospects as well as trial results to date. CYCC now has accelerating enrollment both in patients wanting the drug and testing centers wanting to participate in trials internationally. Also, the descriptive terms being used by industry eicons and analysts are "significant" improvement as contrasted to the bashers here (posing as concerned investors) which are trying to downgrade the industry's description to "modest" improvement. If Sap is just a modest improvement over conventional drugs why is SEAMLESS trial accelerating internationally? Sorry but basher spin does not pass the smell test.

    Great Post!.

    Only one explanation for non-stop boiler room campaign of misinformation - to create confusion and doubt. Aliases such as Michaelw, Value, Icey, promise they are not bashers yet ignore their posting history. They are working far too hard to tarnish this small biotech with very big potential.

    And then of course there is rayon and hyper. Both children of a lesser god (at least if compared to the yawnster) to be sure. However, are fully capable of solid entertainment in their own right.

    Here is an excerpt from our own "Rayon Man" not even 2 days before (Sept. 2) PTN's multi million partnership announcement:

    "...in my opinion, the CEO should be let go and the Board of Directors should be replaced for allowing the company's inaction.
    If Brem is not a viable Phase 3 candidate, investors should have been informed of this many months ago. "

    Oh the brilliance and lucidity is overwhelming Ray Daddy. Can not wait for more of your ethereal gems. May I take the liberty of comparing the content of your posts with the content of your fabric namesake - ok here goes looks nice and feels nice but does not hold up (please check the history of rayon fabric) How apt was that alias creation?

    Shamelessly these posters ignore their posting histories but for the townies and PTN locals left holding their bags at least we can find some consolation as we will get to observe our Board Experts and Lavy Prophets evolve their personnas from no partnership/no way to oh darn partnership/yes way (or how can we convince em that this partnership sucks) Not an easy proposition but a sometimes entertaining one, albeit annoying mostly.

    So refreshing to read genuine analysis as contrasted to the boiler room jokers gibberish!

  • toowan12 toowan12 Sep 6, 2014 6:00 PM Flag

    Great Bash. First yawner and rayon told us no partnerhip for PTN. Then PTN gets a partnership with $50 mil US and they tell us it is a little insignificant partnership.

    For a couple of smart fellas they sure post some dumb stuff.

  • 1) Converses with JK, Icedummy, Winston., etc. clear boiler room tools. Question: If you cannot discern a paid basher from a serious invester - how can you possibly discern reliable investment analysis on companies in complex pharmaceutical industry.
    2) Resembles early Ice profile before he came out of closet. Early profile poses as serious investor compared to the later profile (since he was outed) is pure blatant 100% basher without slightest attempt to conceal bashing.
    3) Notice one thing: value can never quite bring himself to post a purely positive post. All value posts are designed to create doubt therefore can never offer a clearly positive or complimentary post. Value must ignore every piece of positive information and development for cycc as if it does not exist. Rather, he must offer new, left field and irrelevant, information in order to build questions and doubt. All value posts are cleverly jaded and biased and lack objectivity. He will join onto management attacks, despite the meritless basis, because it is a subjective subject and cannot be easily disproved. And, any offerings on science will be vague and oblique and provide no true science unlike the professional industry analysts such as Janney, JMP, others. Notice, the value MO cannot chime in when industry analysts provide their positive cycc analysis and table pounding case for how undervalued cycc pps is at this level. Why? - because they supply facts and backup for their analysis and value will not and cannot.

    Hypey, Ray, and Yawnie must feel like "The Three Muskedummies". Paid boiler room tools for sure. Don't worry though they will be back with their creepy posts. Where else can you go in unwashed sweatpants to find a job if you live in hoboken.

    One question for these 3 bashers: "How can you pose as a serious authentic investor but still spin today's PTN news in a negative light" Answer: they will. Their basher masters will beat them senseless if they don't. In the bashy biz the bashee rolls down hill.

  • toowan12 toowan12 Sep 3, 2014 1:57 PM Flag

    Interesting to see bashers spinning PTN Partnership below in this thread. Tools of the boiler room doing their best to act like real investors in spite of pounding PTN message boards over and over day in day out. Who does this, really? These tools, yawnie, hypey, raymany, all trying to sound so sincere and caring.

    Ask yourself a few questions - when has an anonymous person ever cared about your money and investments? If you are like me the answer is - never. Second question - when has anyone you know ever remained invested in an investment butspends years bashing the company and it's products? Answer - Never. Third question - when has anyone you know left an investment but sticks around for years to just idly bash the company? Answer - Never. So, why are these tools here and who do they work for?

    Anyway do your own due diligence, always. Beware of anonymous posters here that pretend to be real investors but have other agendas. For me, this PTN partnership is a major milestone with millions of dollars attached. It is one more deliverable that PTN has checked off their list. Phase III is in the que. I would expect analyst upgrades and more analyst coverage. Further, the likelihood of a US partner has now jumped by a magnitude. And finally, there continues to be risk however the PTN/Brem pathway has been significantly derisked with today's partnership announcement.

  • Not even one week old. Aug. 31st in fact right here on the PTN board:

    "Regarding partnerships there is obviously no major or likely minor interest."

    Yes, our very own all-knowing, all-seeing, smug message board genius. You know, the voice that castigates endlessly any and all lesser posters for their inferior thoughts and views. He is the final word on all things PTN. And then boom, not even a couple of days later (the cyber ink is still not dry on the great yawnster's post), and PTN announces a terrific 50 mil. partnership.

    I have always believed that our "Yarnac the Great" is a tool operating out of the bowels of a boiler room somewhere in the greater jersey city area. Paid to try to push an agenda, Paid to try to create doubt, and just all around generally untruthful and wrong. But please don't take my word for it, just go back and read a few posts by "Yarnac the Great" . You do not even need to go back more than a week, LOL. Folks remember that the firms employing folks like this are basically taking characters who write junk on public restroom walls and hiring them at a penny a post and then turning them loose on our public message boards. Who knew? But alas - look at the brightside we have our very own "Lavy Prophet"

    The Basher Handbook From The Boiler Room

    by toowan12 Jun 27, 2014 10:05 AM
    toowan12 toowan12 Jun 27, 2014 4:49 PM Flag

    Lesson 5: Bashers know YOU CAN'T VERIFY THEIR STATEMENTS. That's why they make the vague statements they do. They rely on you being to lazy to research their droppings other than to scan the board for others opinions. This is particularly dangerous when you consider that Bashers work in packs and often validate and back up each others nonsense with what appears to be "innocuous and unsolicited" verification by comrade Bashers. Let's face it, we are all conditioned to "believe" everything we see in writing. If others by virtue of their "posts" also confirm this belief, then we are subconsciously doomed to swallow the hook, line and sinker... Basher - 1 Honest Investor - 0

    Lesson 6: The Bashers PLAY ON YOUR LACK OF KNOWLEDGE. They can lie about information and you won't know the difference (unless you have done your own DD on the company and know the truth and facts).

    Lesson 7: Bashers play on your lack of patience. You have held a stock for a while. You knew it will be a big stock someday, but the BASHER CAN GET TO YOU BECAUSE YOU ARE TIRED OF WAITING FOR YOUR GAIN. That's when the Basher is best. You are tired. You have forgotten the goal for the stock was to hold it for one year. The Basher is bothersome, so you dump it on a bad day. Some others also dump. Then you get mad for your loss and return to let everyone know how mad you are. Then you turn into a semi-Basher as well. THE BASHER HAS WON, AND GAINED A NEW ALLY - YOU!

    Lesson 8: BRING THE PRICE DOWN. That is the Basher's job. The truth is not important. Lies are the norm. Post continuously on the board every day. They are trying to scare the newbies that are just investigating a stock. They are trying to wear down the faithful longs on the board and gain free reign and control.

    A BASHER HANDBOOK:
    Do not underestimate a Bashers influence on a stock. The Pro's are good at what they do and what they do is profit from your losses. Below is their "hand-book". Learn from it or you will be donating your hard earn

    Question For You Life

    by michaelwebbseattle Jun 29, 2014 12:48 AM
    toowan12 toowan12 Jun 29, 2014 7:04 AM Flag

    Sorry but your premise is all wrong. By what metric is CYCC struggling badly, as you state?

    The drug is moving through clinical trials successfully. It is moving through multiple diseases with new diseases seemingly added regularly to the list of clinical trials. CYCC management is rock solid and well respected in the Biotech universe. Sorry to you (since you are probably a paid basher), but I do not consider the boiler room rants of a bunch of n'er-do-wells sitting around in dirty sweatpants somewhere in jersey city as credible source of mgmnt evaluation. (CEO bashing is a favorite MO for the basher playbook and you find it all over these mb's. I'm still waiting for the first fact or scintilla of evidence of mgmnt incompetence or corruption and I've been here longer than you my newbie friend).

    You tipped your hand by stating your indefensible premise that CYCC is struggling when anyone with half a brain can see that CYCC is very well off. Their primary drug is doing excellently in clinical trials. As it moves closer to approval and if and when it gets approved the stock price will reflect the true value of CYCC and its oral cancer drug wonder. Until then we, the objective cycc investors, must suffer the likes of you and the other boiler room aliases, posting unfounded nonsense, untruthful information, innuendo, etc. etc.

    Please be aware that it is becoming increasingly more difficult for serious authentic investors to take you mb bashers seriously with your lack of education and uninformed content; especially when cycc is gaining momentum, including recognition from industry icons and professional industry analysts (that do not post rubbish on mb's and who do not work in the shadows or in the world of innuendo). This type of professional recognition is known for presenting factual and reasoned information by virtue of actual education and industry credentials and is just a wee bit more credible, right? Thanks, Bye:)

    Bumpity Bumpity. One of the best views on this message board for CYCC!

  • toowan12 toowan12 Sep 6, 2014 5:55 PM Flag

    Thanks Ari!

  • Group hugs all around, back-patting, etc. It's a basher love fest. You must admit it is adorable.
    It's like bigfatdirtylies then back patting and rinse and repeat over and over.

    But here's the question why are they here (and, who pays them? sorry i know that's 2 questions)?
    MW, icey, woody, valu, and they even dragged out old jaggy. Talk about the Old The Bad and The Ugly.

    Anyway, I guess I just don't get how these guys can be so nice to us longs and how they just want us to be warned about all of the problems with the company. It's like golly gosh they really are so nice aren't they. They just want us to be safe and not lose our money. And darn it, so what if they need to tell us 50 times a day. And my aren't they passionate in the way they attack board contributors that post clinical trial updates and information. But that is something else that concerned nice people do though, right.

    I guess my favorite thing the basher folks do though is how they go out of their way to give us so much science, biology, and clinical information. Oh, it's just so wonderful and delightful.

    I guess I'm just feeling the love and want to be a part of the whole love fest too. I hope that they accept me and want me just as I want them. I am so drawn to their aura of honesty and credibility and general superior intellects. OK, just tell me what you want me to do, you win, you win, you win.....

  • Always do your own due diligence rather than follow aliases on message boards. The pump and dump and the bash for cash ploys are alive and well and the wolves of wallstreet are here. They thrive on innuendo and meritless claims. They try to create doubt and shake investors confidence. They criticize industry icons and claim they are more astute than anyone including company management all while wallowing around in some tawdry boiler room in unwashed sweatpants. Serious Bio-Investors would be well advised to follow science and fact and ignore meritless claims lacking cold science and hard data.

  • Lesson 1: Remember, BASHERS Rarely Bash A BAD STOCK. Check the boards for stocks with no potential. They never have any Bashers. Bashers only go after stocks that are moving up or have excellent potential to do so. Bashers work to bring the price down to either increase their position at the expense of others or help a Short make their bones.

    Lesson 2: BASHERS ALWAYS BRING UP OLD NEWS THAT YOU HAVE HEARD MANY TIMES. New startup companies always have a few bits of bad news. The Basher will post this over and over again. Unsophisticated Bashers will try to freshen up old news with a new date or by-line in an attempt to fool you.

    Lesson 3: BASHERS POST MANY TIMES A DAY. They try to wear you out. They comment on everything, every other post, and can answer every question. THEY KNOW IT ALL! There is no positive comment they won't Bash. They try to control the board. True longs may have to confront the Bashers or they will appear to the newbies as being the people with all the information. This is best accomplished by posting positive, well researched data on the company, repetitively, while trying hard not to engage the Bashers in direct repartee. REMEMBER - LONGS... RESIST USING THE BASHERS ALIAS!

    Lesson 4: BASHERS WILL LIE TO YOUR FACE. Never trust a Basher. The truth on startup companies is that they make mistakes. What new company hasn't? The Basher will compare your issue to a another companies, financials - deals - management, etc., trying to lure you into making an Apples to Oranges comparison. Remember each company is unique and while it is prudent to seek out established indicators, do so with care and don't take someone else's word for it. Strive to come up with at least a "six-pack" of indicators so your vision of the state of a company is not tied to a single barometer. Not doing so is tantamount to going to a Race Track and betting on the "Pretty Brown Horsey". BASHERS WANT TO WHISPER IN YOUR EAR - PLANT A SEED OF DOUBT, AND HOPE THAT YOU ARE NOT SAVVY EN

    Hey Jaggy - What's up with TCEL? Or, Should We Be Asking What's Down With TCEL?

    Should we really put any faith in your stock analysis when pumping and dumping over on some penny vetinarian hamscam?

    And, oh yeah your boiler room buddies that you are putzing with iceydummy et al they usually do not post on other boards under same alias you should try that, because after reading your junk up on TCEL and then reading your junk up on CYCC it's like, I don't think so dude.

    It's like Sapacitabine is a serious drug which you bash obsessively and this TCEL junk is an apparent .0014 scam which you pump obsessively. Come on dude.
