  • Mallinckrodt buys Questcor [View news story]
    This is the same type of situation MONT is in. Except MONT is overpriced and longterm qcor holders are screwed with only 86 dollars a share. Talk about a discounted price.

  • The 27-1 AdCom Votes Have So Many Positive Implications For MannKind [View article]
    My conservative guess is - approval w/ a warning label. All short term traders took their profits in the 8's including myself.

  • Idera Pharmaceuticals' Proof Of Concept Goal Was Met [View instapost]
    What I don't get is how investors dismiss all downgrades but upgrades are good. And dismiss dubious downgrades like PJ's recent one on Mannkind, which was flat out wrong but PJ put's anhigh price target on Idera, which is good. LOL. While exp does a great job on extrapolation of data, actually he is one of best at this, YET has a glaring cognitive bias. Is that conviction? I guess so.....

  • MONT Short 21.00 [View instapost]
    I tend to agree.But I did buy some otm's for october. Your comment yesterday is what I was thinking too, the dubious buyout to let insiders dump after the lockout. It wasn't a big investment for me, even if SEC said they are frauds, my only risk is they freeze MONT and my options expire worthless. I remember CCME, the SEC froze trading for several months before SEC came and called them frauds.

    I hope no one from Markman ever gets on SCOTUS, by their false logic they will vote to remove the Bill of Rights

    Yeah, thanks KP. I am looking more into this company now and there are no shares to short through Ameritrade. The spread on the the options is bigger than I would like.

  • Vringo's Shareholder Update And What Investors Need To Know About Patent Reform And This Patent Hero [View article]
    Agree w/ Marpha. Secondly, how much litigation are they going to pursue WITHOUT any revenue sources. Looks as if they are staying put as is until some cash stream comes into play. The conference call wasn't anything new. At some point we'll see what ADT provided.

  • Vringo: How To Lose At Winning [View article]
    I don't know why anyone would call him a sell out. He expected a higher price on the RR motion but he didn't use emotions and took his profits. I am curious if he will come out with any other stock ideas. I consider seekingalpha more of a sellout by allowing this article. It's inept, useless, and author pretty much did it out of spite from his own poor trading.

  • Shares Of Vringo Jump 22% After Work-Around Ruling: Are You Capitalizing On This Big Opportunity? [View article]
    No lawyer, if someone could clarify a thought of mine.... If for some reason Google settled in the next couple weeks, which I highly doubt. Would this be privately done and not found out until VRNG quarterly earnings? I am assuming public disclosure is all decided in the settlement contract? Anyone know?

  • The Patent Game: Payoff Or Bust! [View article]
    ?? It's called time decay, not hard to sell calls for a SCHEDULED binary event. Someone here talks like they know more than the obvious.

  • The Patent Game: Payoff Or Bust! [View article]
    If found to be more than a colorable variation, Googs says it's their 7th amendment right to a jury trial. Whats the deal with that?

  • Parkervision's Win Has Investors Cheering: Don't Be Surprised To See A Secondary Offering On The Way Though [View article]
    How long can google go? If they can appeal, and appeal and they hit a dead end, there is no settlement left. It will be 2016 and they will owe ALL of the money immediately. If the current appeals is the last option, they will wait until the whole case is done. Say they lose flat out in mid 2014. Just for conversation, it adds up to about 800 million, all google is looking to do is settle the future payments of... lets say 500 million down to an immediate payment of 350 million. Google ain't settling until they flat out lose.
