  • Important Information About Article On Omeros Corporation

    Seeking Alpha has recently published an article about a risky stock whose valuation is based on things going well years in the future while it is to remain unprofitable. They have chosen to classify it as describing a place to invest money in order to have it appreciate over time. It is pursuant to implementing a "Performance" tracking feature that shows how stock prices have changed since publication of articles focusing on them. In the past, most articles have been published as designated at the time of submission, e.g. "Long," "Quick Pick & List..." On occasion, there has been reclassification after submission. The data currently shown is accurate (though other results are not included if the main ticker is classified as a dividend stock, for example).

    Probably due to unspecified guidelines, they have presented my recent writeup on OMER as a recommendation to consider the stock for appreciation of capital over time. Incidentally, the amount of money risked personally is small.

    Please do not be confused into thinking the same methods that have resulted in the performance data shown have been used to categorize Omeros Corporation today. Whether it can be acknowledged or not, there has been a lack of responsibility to those who click on the headline. Hopefully it can be remedied in the near future.

    Disclosure: The author is long OMER.
