  • All GERNsters it is Friday. No it's not howdie doodie time. It's time to get ready for the big news release on Monday.

    If feel left out and I just wanted post some nonsense. Everybody else can do it. Why can't I. Just saying.
  • At the top of my page it says, 11,319 reactions on $GERN conversation. Depending on who you mute it might be different for U.

    Then I looked at William's posts and it says 6465 reactions. So 57% of the posts here on my Geron Conversation page are by William.

    No judgment here just saying. ;) ;)
  • My Take....JNJ would not embaress their reputation by listing a Drug on their Pipeline List of Blockbuster drugs on a WHIM....JMHO
  • In 2014, as another example, J&J worked out a licensing deal with clinical-stage biotech Geron (NASDAQ: GERN) for its experimental myelofibrosis and myelodysplastic syndromes drug imetelstat. In early-stage studies, imetelstat demonstrated partial and complete responses in some myelofibrosis patients, marking the first time ever in a clinical study targeting myelofibrosis that objective responses were observed. Previous drugs had only worked to diminish symptoms associated with the disease and did nothing for the actual root cause. If approved, imetelstat has blockbuster potential, giving Geron the ability to earn up to $935 million (inclusive of its up-front cash and milestone revenue), as well as sales royalties.

    And even more recently, we saw J&J increase its dividend by just 5%, which was the smallest percentage increase this decade. What this likely implies is that J&J does want to take care of its long-term shareholders, but it also wants to keep as much cash flow at the ready to make earnings-accretive acquisitions, should they present themselves.

    It's possible that J&J's focus on pharmaceuticals could lead to a bit more volatility for a traditionally non-volatile stock, but there aren't red flags that would suggest investors cash in their chips here with the company at its priciest valuation in a decade.

    Here's Why Johnson & Johnson Is Valued at Its Highest P/E in a Decade
    Healthcare conglomerate Johnson & Johnson (NYSE: JNJ) is what you might refer to as a "mainstay investment" for a lot of people. It's the largest publicly traded healthcare company in

  • Breakout day coming
  • Consistent GERN
    Well ER despite your rantings, GERN consistently fails to take part in biotech sector upmoves. Chippy and his bridge playing underlings should be held fully accountable for failing to attain market recognition.
  • If the shorts buy back all 34 million shorted GERN shares Monday GERN will close at over $50 a share.
  • Johnson and Johnson is a $365 billion company and this week Johnson and Johnson has shown the whole world that Johnson and Johnson has put their full support behind GERN. JNJ calls GERN 1 of their top 6 future money makers.
    Those shorting the 33 million GERN shares better wake up fast because Johnson and Johnson / GERN will destroy them.
    The shorts have to buy GERN stock back to make money but when GERN's price takes off the shorts will lose the shirts.
  • We have entered into Phase 3 for IMERGE (They are recruiting participants): Here's what the current presentation from Geron says about the Part 1, Part 2 (Phase 3):
    - Part 1 (Phase 2) to evaluate safety and efficacy of imetelstat to advance to Part 2 based on positive assessment of
    benefit-risk profile in significant unmet medical need population
    - Part 2 (Phase 3) to compare imetelstat to placebo using an established regulatory endpoint

    Now here's what the IMERGE Trials data posted on Geron's web site says as of June 29:
    This study is currently recruiting participants. (It shows 46 locations are recruiting - I believe this is different than the 30 patients they recruited for Part 1)

  • Johnson and Johnson and the 33 million shorted GERN shares are heading for a head on collision and the 33 million shorted GERN shares are not going to win.
    Johnson and Johnson was just this week was bragging about GERN's drug being one of 6 top future JNJ money makers.

  • Well GERN fans, another week has come and gone AND looks like we still have a $2 stock.

    No Big Biobucks and No Janssen news!

    Will either happen in Q4 '17, in '18, or '19? Who knows?

    And, we are still compensating chippy and crew $ Millions, EVERY YEAR, for no apparent shareholder Return On Investment!!!

    Why do we tolerate that?

    Chippy has FAILED to increase the PPS above and beyond the pre-Hold values.


    And, NOT Last nor Least, when is he going to come clean about the specific metrics in the Janssen License?

    Why do some still think that chippy is doing a good job for investors???

    Where are the metrics that show investor Return On Investment Improvement?

    I opine that those who think or profess things are going well at GERN simply do not understand company management and corporate governance!!!

    Of course, IMO.
  • And, we're paying chippy and all the other executives $Millions for this sort of performance?

    Go Figure!
  • I love this by Skunk BM...

Don't get me wrong BM...i think you're a terrific L-O-S-E-R........maybe even the biggest message board L-O-S-E-R ...EVER...

    You better watch out though...there's someone after your title of The Biggest L-O-S-E-R...his name is Mr William W. Basher.
