  • What's Hurting Biotechnology Stocks? [View article]
    Why do you pick on MNKD? There's a partnership in the works, plus a disruptive treatment for one of the fastest growing health epidemics in the world.

  • History Shows MannKind Has A Near Certain Chance Of Approval [View article]
    I think you are missing Actelion in your final chart. 10 yes votes out of 13 is 77%.

    Thanks. I saw this ad and thought--there's a good idea for a little under cover work.

    Hi Bill, It's always good to know what the guy on the top is getting. It certainly effects investors, one way or another.

  • Chelsea Therapeutics: Primed For An Easy Double [View article]
    Indeed. What has changed since the FDA rejected the drug? The company has rearranged some data? You ought to really believe in the potential for this drug before you buy in. It will fall below $1 on bad news.

    BTW, Lindsay Rosenwald run Paramount Biopharm, which owns CHTP, has a record of picking drugs with somewhat novel previous applications. The fact that this was approved in 1989 in Japan means absolutely nothing to the FDA. It serves as a red flag to me. Just see what happened recently to another Paramount company, Coronado Bioscience (CNDO) whose drug (slip worm, actually) had been used successfully to treat Chron's disease.

    Good luck to you...

  • Frothy Finance Makes Conn's Inc. An Attractive Short [View article]
    Thanks for your thoughts. There's obviously limited room for growth in financing unless you can keep growing the retail. Considering valuation, I definitely see a case for shorting.

  • Chelsea Therapeutics Still Alive: 306b Trial Supports Northera Efficacy And Safety [View article]
    On second thought, after researching Paramount, and Rosenwald, I am more eager to sell. I apologize for being misinformed on the matter, and ignorant of such corruption in the industry. This article from "Deep Capture" on the manipulation of Dendreon in 2005 has been eye-opening: What other Paramount scams have been recorded?

  • Anthera Recovering After Long Fall [View article]
    Hi, thanks for your comment, and previous insight on Anthera in other articles. I agree that this is a good opportunity, and that catalysts may be closer than most investors think: a partnership would be a tremendous boost.

  • Significant Upcoming Catalysts For These Biotechs Should Provide Alpha Opportunity [View article]
    According to the American Diabetes Association website: "Only people with type 2 diabetes can use pills to manage their diabetes, people with type 1 diabetes must use insulin."

    Also, since we're speculating...Mann could be waiting for some bargaining leverage with a big pharma. Who knows?

  • Supreme Court Case Will Not Postpone Abtech's First Contract Wins [View article]
    Last quarter they announced earnings on the fourth (November) for the next week. I was expecting something today. Perhaps folks are speculating that the company is delaying some bad news. I also have read that microcap stocks have been taking this pullback harder than other companies, which is of course always the case. Maybe this 30% just comes with the territory of being a thinly traded, under reported company.
