    R & R finally picked up coverage today on ZIOP. $8 price target (within 12 months). The CEO (Dr. Lewis) is in UAE next week @ a medical meeting. Hopefully this will put a bit of wind in the sails.

  • Author’s reply » Still hopeful for some price improvement. When you back out the 48MM in cash, the market is valuing the company @ $85MM or so. A very modest valuation.

     

    Hopefully ZIOP will get some additional coverage and/or upgrades. Keep your eye on the Feb 15th filings. If "known" MF names are in, it is a good sign.

     

    I am still waiting for any sign of progress on the business front. I assume the strengthened balance sheet puts them in a better negotiating position.

     

    Fingers and toes crossed.

     

    Good luck here.

  • I'm betting Europe works out. That's bad for the $ but good for gold. I guess the Germans rule the continent without having to fire a shot!
