My specialty is the hi tech sector- I work as an analyst in search engine optimization, so I have an acute understanding of some of the biggest companies in the world, all of whom use search technology in some way, shape, or form (Google, Microsoft, Apple, Twitter, Amazon, Facebook, & Yahoo).

  • CVM Insider Buying 2 comments
    Jan 18, 2014 3:45 PM | about stocks: CVM

    I sold my shares of CVM a few months ago, because I got fed up with CEO Geert Kersten's shifty messages. He kept promising something big, some sort of surprise, but the only constant was a depreciation of the stock price, dilution, and a very big salary.

    However, as with any small cap biotech, insider buying makes people notice. Geert just bought 300,000 shares, and as the CEO of a tiny company in the middle of phase III testing for Multikine, well, that's kind of a big deal.

    It's tricky to speculate about insider buying, and could be that Kersten is trying to drum up interest by buying what isn't a necessarily huge amount of shares, but regardless, it is noticeable.

    I would feel more comfortable in buying CVM if the dates and timelines were more open. I really have no idea when Multikine might come to fruition, and it is for that reason that I am still holding out from buying. Something is still fishy.

    Whats fishy, the ceo bought shares they are suing there old CRO, and moving forward recruiting for trials.

     

    Additionally, they have a trial for HPV treatment in HIV individuals. I have a feeling that the results are gonna be that it cured both HPV and HIV.

    Author’s reply » I wouldn't speculate that much. The CEO irks me, in a shady way.
