  • We're holding above 2 nicely.We could use more volume but until we get some news we probably won't do much.We only have until October for the trial to end so we'll probably be here for a while.JMO
  • On a weekly closing basis, the last time CPRX ended above $2.12 was in late December 2015. It would have been nice to finish above $2.17 to confirm the break above resistance. But honestly, give the steady advance through the week, profit-taking should have been and did happen on Friday. Looks like we are seeing a pattern of steady, gradual accumulation. That means 20-30 points up, then a pullback of 10-15 points. It looks like $3 and then $4 will come sooner than I think.
  • the natives are getting restless!
  • Tomorrow will be a solid up day...today was their day to correct 100k's of shares while under pharma index pressure...

  • Now we just need a high volume push as it clears 52 week high!
  • Excellent start.
  • It went above $2.20 but holding at $2.17. Does that mean we broke the $2.17 barrier?
  • Any news leaked? It's running?
  • BIG blocks going off now
  • Now we're getting somewhere.
  • CPRX..it's the chart...blastoff...
  • I thought the results announced last week provided the spark for this advance. The company said it was on track to release the results on Firdapse and that other indications seems promising. Investors began adding from there and the momentum of the buying was so strong it lifted the stock to end over $2 and after hours trading pushed it to $2.12 with a high for the day at $2.14. The volume, and this was impressive, hit 1,128,541, more than double the 10-day average of 462,900. The 14-day RSI though is at 70.52, right on the nose at the overbought level. We may see a little pullback, but it will likely be shallow.In six weeks, we enter the third quarter so any slight retreat in the stock is being used by investors to open or add to their positions. Those who came in below $1.50 or even $1 are primed for a real good return by this time next year. I believe the stock, if developments stay on track, should clear $3 and then $4 by the end of the third quarter. Then it would be in position to challenge the area over $5 in early October. Just on all the indications CPRX could hit on (Firdapse, 115 and myasthenia gravis), the stock should go double digits. But my overly cautious side says that will not happen until they first go commercial on Firdapse. These are only my opinions or guesstimates and I will likely be wildly off on my calculations. My hope as a long is of course to the upside. Stay well everyone.
  • Let's hope the buyers show up in droves for an exceptional close!
