or the crooks loaded up on calls to hedge their shorted positions; they are covering their shorts soon and this will rally in epic proportion. Everyone wins, even the shorts, but not the stubborn ones who will be the last to cover.
well said, I missed out on aapl and msft when they were at the beginning stage. I am not going to miss out on this one. Will only sell at $50 or higher.
The total share volume is about 400 mil.
Al Mann owns 138 mil plus; other insiders total about 4 mil combinded
Thus, total insiders shares is about 142 mil.
Institutional ownership 92 mil plus since 9/30/14
Thus, retailers own about 120 mil shares.
Shorted shares 80 mil. Since insiders legally can not trade on a daily basis, they are not part of the float vol. Thus, the shorted percentage is about 31% of the float
i hope it's a BO announcement so that the shorts wouldn't have any time to react. Anything else those scoundrels can still cover under 10 and even go long and make money still
those who buy puts at this level deserves to be taken to the back yard and get an execution LOL, they escaped natural selection.
can't understand these shorts, even shorting in the 7-8 area, what are they hoping to gain? A few bucks? At the current level, no longs in their right minds are selling. So what are these shorts waiting for? To get killed? Wait, they want to squeeze another $1 out of this but at the same time facing a possible rally that may kill them 10x over?
it's about to get really ugly for the shorts, just my sixth sense.
nice risk/reward ratio! Just a few months away; don't say I didn't warn you shorts. You have no one to blame but your arrogance that you may have to sell your house to cover your losses.
they can short against adcom, fda, but they can't hold against the actual success. Like Tesla, before the cars came out, the shorts were jumping with joy but as soon as the product hit the market, they folded with shame with their heads stuck in their #$%$. You will gain $2 if you are successfully shorting mnkd from this point, but your loss is potentially $50? Tell, is that a good risk/reward ratio? Cover or you may have to sell the roof you are living under to cover your loss.
This does not make any sense. Weeks if not a few months from the launch of a blockbuster, and not a single page of advertisement????? Unless Afrezza or technosphere are sold to another company or perhaps split into two, this 5 months of silence after FDA approval of Afrezza just seems very odd.
BO at $56/sh, put the shorts' heads all in the guilletine and start the countdown. Let Sanofi pull the trigger, after all Guelletine was invented in France.
If this was a flop, they would have pumped and sell along the pump. But ever since FDA approval, you hear nothing from management but Palumbo and Juergen's sellings; these insiders are distant from the Hakan and Mann; thus, they may be led to or forced out without any job. Usually angry employees dump shares or this was asked to be dumped by Al Mann many years ago when they got those shares, part of the contract to fool the market.
I find it difficult to believe that a blockbuster this big is trading so poorly. I am holding to zero, if I have to.
The shorts will start to cover tomorrow. They can't possibly hold their positions against 2-3 positive events in the next few months; that will destroy them.
the shorts aren't in control, they have been doubling down to control the price. Look at the shorted shares, from 70 mil to 83 mil shares currently. You call it control but I call it panic and mafia mentality, if you can't beat it with finess and smarts, you muscle your way. You shorts will get slaughtered, you will not walk out of this with a roof over your head.
Adam Fartstain and Jason Karp have plaqued mnkd and Afrezza like a thorn that never goes away. Now they are probably shorting EYES as well. Drop the guilletine and make their existence shameful; make them want to crawl into the gutter and hide there for a long long time.
It will give me similar pleasure as making money. Being successful with mnkd investment gives me sooo much pleasure, because I get to see wallstreet criminals like Adam Fartstain and Jason Karp suffering huge financial loss and defeat. I can't wait to rub it in their faces.
