BOSTON, MA / ACCESSWIRE / June 30, 2020 / On June 30, 2020, analyst Citron Research issued a report regarding CytoDyn Inc. (CYDY) entitled "SEC Must Immediately Halt this Stock Promotion Scheme." Citron wrote: "[w]e cannot remember the last time we've seen a bigger joke of a stock."
In its report, Citron continued, "[t]his is a $5 billion market cap company with 10 employees who claim to have the cure for COVID with zero data and a CEO who sold >$30 million of stock ~70% lower than yesterday's closing price. The CEO has made inappropriate promotional claims like ‘this looks the solution to coronavirus' leading into his most recent stock sale." Citron further wrote that despite CytoDyn's "aggressively tout[ing] its investigational drug candidate, Leronlimab, as a potential treatment for COVID-19 . . . there is zero scientific data to support this view." This, Citron notes, "has not prevented the company from making several misleading and disingenuous claims in an effort to generate hype around their drug candidate and stock price."
On this news, shares are down approximately 34%.
