    It is not the company's fault...


    In four years sales up from $38 million to $3000+ million, profits from a $49 million loss to $100 million profit, 1/3 the market value is cash, its drug cures cancer in one injection 88% of the time for $40 grand versus the competition that costs $120K, takes two years, and only works 53% of the time. Its other drug is taking market share from a generic that has been around 30+ years (though the shorts think it will lose to the generic). It is presenting 19 abstracts at ASH. It has a pipeline that could provide many more growth opportunities.


    Management is excellent with a brilliant strategy, and the new hires from Amgen will take it to new heights.


    Compare the earnings, growth, and balance sheet to any other $600K-$1.5 billion market cap biotech and tell me which one(s) are stronger, more profitable, and have a brighter future.


    At 3x cash, 6x earnings for a 50% grower, for the life of me I cannot understand why 60% think the price will go down.
