    Stay tuned. 900k + traded today(up .22). Hopefully Dr. Lewis and Co. have found some commercial (partnering) success.  I suspect (based on the unusual volume)we will see some news prior to Monday's open.  

    Disclosure: Very Long ZIOPHARM

  • Author’s reply » It is hard to guess what is going on. 1MM traded today. That is huge volume for this issue. I really, really hope Dr. Lewis bags a decent deal. They run the company very thin and I'm sure a helping hand from big pharma could advance his trials.


    Stay tuned.

  • 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!
