Peregrine Pharmaceuticals (PPHM +8.7%) regains some yesterday's decline after the company was featured in a pessimistic article in Seeking Alpha. The stock actually began its fall on Monday, but was exacerbated yesterday by the SA piece by contributor Robert Schwartz, who noted that PPHM's lead drug candidate, bavituximab, has had twelve Phase-I/-II studies and treated 613 cancer patients but has yet to observe a statistically significant improvement over a contemporary standard-of-care. Schwartz thinks its time to throw in the towel.

    The discussion is better than the article and has caused the stock to regain some ground it seems.

    The imaginary Mr. Swartz was a hedge fund creation and a stolen photo. Sorry if you bought into that horse ship.

    Robert Schwartz's position, must be as very pessimistic, SHORT rabid, but it seems that the action PPHM not pay much attention and up from yesterday over UN10%.

    ARNA INVESTOR: If Robert Schwartz is imaginary as you say and his photo is stolen, I would be surprised if one of the three federal agencies looking into the misconduct of CSM and the way they handled PPHM's Phase II data would not be interested to know this information.
