    His bio from The Street...

     

    "Before joining TheStreet in March 2001, Feuerstein covered business software for Upside.com. Prior to that he covered a variety of business beats, including technology and commercial real estate, at the San Francisco Business Times.

     

    Feuerstein graduated from Emory University with a bachelor's degree in political science."

     

    This guy is the The Street's "expert analyst" on clinical research and bio-tech? Double-Booyah!!!

    Why do you think he purposely displays so much detail that has nothing to do with biotech or life sciences in his bio.....

    Probably because The Street makes all their authors provide a bio and a summary of their circle of experience, and in this case none of it has anything to do with biotech or life science. If he had any background in clinical research or hard science, I have no doubt he would provide it considering it would go a long ways towards his credibility on the subject.

     

    I've read his criticism of NWBO, and none of them have to do with data or the hard science. He deconstructs press releases and attempts to find hidden meanings, conspiracy theories and connect self imagined dots. He's not reading data, he's reading Tarot Cards.

     

    Ultimately, NWBO will be a successful company, help patients and reward investors based on the bottomline of whether or not their products are effective treatments against the ailments they're targeting. That's where the rubber ultimately meets the road. Not when they put out their press summaries or how they specifically worded them. His "analysis" as to that ultimate question is no more useful than asking a Magic 8 Ball. All the other nonsense is the noise distracting the signal.

    Having studied hard-core science (Chemistry and Physics) in college, it is very upsetting that people pay attention to him.

    I agree in terms of making money with his advice. However, I would not allow him to interpret scientific journal articles for me, it is very apparent that he does not have the training.

    Smith on Stocks just answered his allegations well on his recent NWBO article. Personally, I hope this bully is put in his place. He's the Alexander Putin of the biotech world at this point and someone needs to expose his tactics. Media folk love to create controversy of course--it is good for ratings.

    See lots of idiots follow their own, its for shorters only following this adam fellow. Day traders hop on the stock on the negative news down. People need to ignore him now and see it for what it is.

    AF is loosing it!
    Does he realize the official NWBO is saying:
    "Feuerstein's accusations were factually wrong, materially misleading and reflect a lack of knowledge on Feuerstein's part in regard to the German procedures and legal requirements relating to the PEI decision and the Company's announcement."
    and
    "The only manipulation that has occurred in this case is Feuerstein's use of the date of just the first step in the multi-step process to distort the facts about NW Bio's announcement and its timing."
    He might want to be a little less exposed to possible legal actions.

     

    I was thinking of writing a blogpost with NWBO, CHTP, and MNKD's hit articles authored by AF but I don't think it's necessary. He is digging his own grave and it has become blatantly obvious there is a strong bias in his articles. The precise intent of the bias is up for interpretation, but the bias is unmistakable and can be documented.

    The problem is those who make the biggest noise get heard, not those with relevant things to say.

     

    This is why people like Mr. Poli-Sci have to destroy companies that try to help the human race since they don't have the intelligence or ability to do anything constructive. Yes, life saving drugs come from doctors and those skilled in real science, not political science (whatever that is. Sounds like a degree in keeping it real).

     

    Karma is a bitch and in a few years, this guy is going to wish some of these companies had a drug for him, but at that time, someone else will be shorting the bio-techs that have the "save furstein" drug. I've seen it first hand, what goes around comes around and its fast now. Be a dick today, get cancer tomorrow.
