  • Volume is not such an issue to get to these prices. Fewer shares aren't being sold in large lots. As an individual issue (even within the bio space) IDRA is overdue to recover in price.

    Sentiment: Strong Buy

  • The "ask" has expanded since Pillar finished selling.

    Wow, I agree! This looks like a computer malfunction. Logically you could have bought the $2.50 with something to call your own by next week. Before anyone else says it, I don't believe it was Samcoty who bought these calls. (He could have sold some though).
    This option activity has a high probability to pull the SP to $3 and above. Monday ought to be a fireworks day.
    Now I don't think the cohort results will come out Monday as I believe it was this op activity causing the rise in price. Wonder what happens on Friday next week?

    Buy Buy Buy!

    Today and tomorrow are good day's to accumulate. Through EOD Friday the $3 call holders have a stranglehold. They can sell all during these two days for over $3 and still buy the issue at $3 after Friday close. Maybe discussions around the GSO topic will catch some interest... IMO

    Sentiment: Strong Buy

  • Several bios have come back to being positive. ISIS is retracing with force behind it. IDRA's turn will be coming. IMO

    Sentiment: Strong Buy

  • Looks oversold. ARWR is being impacted by the patent ALNY got. Shouldn't affect IDRA. Selling seems overdone to me. Okay, it isn't in an uptrend but, the results are really near term. So, $3.10 is a support price today.

    Thanks for the information. I believe I will stay long. It seems most of your appreciation has come from being long and not from option proceeds. But your strategy might be the better one.
    Near term the cohort results or another analyst initiating coverage plays very strong. For example, CNAT was initiated by ROTH this week and had a 50% gain.
    Here is hoping RNA issues continue to retrace and we all prosper. IMO

    Sentiment: Strong Buy

  • Tim Sullivan wasn't included with these. Granting options is a small net positive. It helps the outlook. IMO

    $4.00 next stop

    Another 300,000 shares trading today to 1.8 million and the share price ought to return to the $3.40's. The shorts who are still shorting could get some heat before the day is over. ISIS ought to be coming back as well. There has been too much momentum to keep these two issues down for over a day.

    4s are coming, congrats IDRA folks

    My observation is those who added recently and set stops are getting sold out. For a new entry this is a very good price. Yesterday's strong close must have set up for this weakness (gap in buying) compounded by stops being taken out. Looks like when the price stays for a while at say $3.30 those waiting to catch a discount will come back and buy. I already am all in but, it is interesting to watch. IMO

    Sentiment: Strong Buy

  • The associated RNA issues recently brought good progress to report for their platforms. That and a rebound of confidence in the oversold RNA area is helping to move IDRA. ISIS and IDRA ought to continue to rise with June options for IDRA helping to bring new buyers and holders. It is looking like the share price could rise to $4.50 by opex. The current mid $3.40 range is a good buying op. IMO

    The pressure is from below

    Not so much worrying but more reviewing of other situations. Today, looking at the options for June opex there is support now for a SP in the mid $3's. That comes from reviewing options for the other RNA bios, too. But, the July option activity for IDRA is miniscule. The second half of June could be a breakout period. Bio's are getting buyers back and so is IDRA. The way back could come with a rush! IMO

    Sentiment: Strong Buy

  • A lot of IDRA's fellow bio's have clung to even or turned green today. IBB has stayed green in a small way throughout the day. In two weeks those who bought so many calls at $3 will likely be turning them in to hold the stock. The buying pressure today is making for a quick move to the mid $3's is my guess. IMO

    Sentiment: Strong Buy

  • Interest and soon confidence will be here. Other bios are performing well. Retracement is easy after a turn in outlook. IMO

    IBB rallys

    As consolation for having IDRA through the bio slide you can turn and look at RXII. I believe they recently had good results and progress to communicate but, haven't made it past $3. (IDRA has distinction for making it beyond $3 recently). You may have noticed I watch ARWR for pricing trends and news.
    IDRA is all I own with no plans to move. Cohort results, new trials starting, and high potential for analyst initial reccommendations ought to make for quite a summer.

    Your call looks right-on to me. The report today is the bio group has passed the 50 dma. ISIS is moving higher this morning. For a prediction, let's say ISIS makes it to $33 from $27 quickly, then IDRA makes a move from $2.72 to $3.26 quickly. Other bios moved up yesterday, it's IDRA's turn today and Friday. This prediction is entirely reasonable.

    KD - Had to think about this sometime before arriving what is my conclusion. Mr. Sullivan is not an investor/owner for the company. Rather he is compensated for his employed efforts and doesn't need or like the risk of holding a big position in the company stock. The 25,000 share that he holds would seem to be a small part of his diversified personal portfolio. The Gheraty purchase and the Piper re-itteration are worth more to investors than the the Sullivan sale of shares.
    Let's hope we get "further" news of progress at the conference tomorrow!

    Sentiment: Strong Buy
