There are only two things in this world that I can't stand...people who are intolerant of other people's cultures, and the Dutch.

    Now that Kim Jung Ill has been paid off for taking hostages and releasing them to Hillary's husband, I thought Trey Parker's musical homage to the Dear Leader was appropriate today.

    Enjoyed the clip. Clinton gave Kim Jong mentally ILL the money, the material, and the technology for nukes. Then Madelaine Albright said later "He tricked us." So maybe the hostage release was a token of appreciation to Bill.

    After the bell yesterday, Dynavax Technologies (NASDAQ: DVAX - News) announced second-quarter net income of $4.1 million or 10 cents a share on revenues totaling $35.2 million. The results were a significant improvement over the same period last year, during which the company lost -$6.1 million or 15 cents a share. Just prior to releasing quarterly performance figures, Dynavax announced that it met with the FDA to discuss plans to resume the development of a hepatitis B vaccine. The company also has Phase 1 clinical stage programs underway for two other hepatitis therapies. The stock has pared its gains throughout the session, but remains ahead by 7%. Some of its peers are up big on the day, while much of the sector remains in negative territory.

     

    As a whole, the Swine and Bird Flu Stocks Index is up by 3.2% today. It is currently outperforming the S&P 500 by 18.2% over the last month.

     

    Inovio Biomedical (AMEX: INO - News) was added to the Index last week when its swine flu vaccine showed 100% protection against the virus in animal studies. Today it too is moving on news unrelated to the H1N1 virus. Announced early this morning, the company has data representing what it believes to be the first human demonstration of significant and persistent antibody response stimulated by the Inovio's electroporation technology. The DNA vaccine is aimed to combat tumor cells by boosting T-cell response. Dr. Christian Ottensmeier, head of the study, said, "this data supports optimism for use of this next-generation vaccine modality as a strategy against infections and cancer." Inovio shares are adding 22% to their huge, 236% one-month rally.

     

    Novavax (NASDAQ: NVAX - News) is up 13% ahead of Friday's earnings report. Analysts are expecting the company to report an -11-cent loss per share. According this morning's report by the Associated Press, the company synthesized a version of the swine flu virus that cannot replicate, which has potential for use in a vaccine. According to the AP, Novavax boasted that the virus-like particle was generated only 11 weeks after receiving the gene sequence from the Centers for Disease Control, a feat that the company believes shows its abilities under pandemic pressure.

     

    Sanofi-Aventis (NYSE: SNY - News) is among the day's laggards, down by over -2%. It is hanging onto a 1% over the last week. Meanwhile, Novartis (NYSE: NVS - News) and AstraZeneca (NYSE: AZN - News) are up by 4.5% and 1.5% respectively in the past five days.

     

    Small-cap favorite Hemispherx Biopharma (AMEX: HEB - News) is up by 6% today. It remains the only stock in the Index to suffer losses over the last month, down -15%. Inovio and BioCryst (NASDAQ: BCRX - News) are laggards over the last week.

     

    As of this writing, the Swine Flu Stocks Index is one of the top-10 performing tickerspy Indexes over the last week, up 30%.

    Freya- if you want to add to your nvax position, why aren't you buying calls? Are they pricey? I haven't priced them but I was thinking maybe some in the money calls for jan 2010 might do the trick. Have you priced em?

    i'm signed up to get updates twice a day. it's wonderful. Schaeffer also wrote a great book on options investing, in the mid 90's. it's still in print and cheap- maybe ten bucks. wonderful stuff. although options have changed, there is still a lot of good material that is as timely now as it was then!
