  • Amidst Whirlwind Of Opinions From Tourbillon MannKind Shareholders Remain Strong 4 comments
    Jul 31, 2014 6:11 PM | about stocks: MNKD

    Published: Thursday, 31 July 2014 03:44 Written by Doctor Hung V. Tran, MD, MS. Disclosure: I am long on MNKD.

    As the next earnings report is approaching for MannKind Corporation, loyal shareholders are anxiously waiting for the management's announcement regarding Afrezza commercialization. MannKind Corporation is a small company based in Valencia, California, with its FDA approved lead drug Afrezza indicated for diabetes mellitus treatment.

    Recent negative opinions by Tourbillon's manager, Mr. Jason Karp, during his appearance on CNBC also added stress for shareholders awaiting MannnKind's fate. While the merits of the SAC fund manager are debatable, Mr. Karp's opinions indeed had negative impact on MannKind's shares price.

    Since the July 25th article detailing Mr. Karp's statement on a blog called Value Walk, which consistently posted negative articles on MannKind the stock seemed to lost its steam and traded 10 percent lower to close at $8.66.

    MannKind shareholders on various social media platforms, including StockTwits, Twitters, and Facebook fought hard to bring truth regarding MannKind and Afrezza.

    Unfortunately, stocks like mnkd are vulnerable to lies and misinformation. The way to profit is to tap a small position and add as it goes down.
