  • MannKind's Afrezza May Reach Larger Diabetic Population Than Previously Considered [View article]
    the good , the bad, and , the ugly
    the bad news is that the bond holders get to buy stock at the average , each day, till next week
    the good news is , so can you buy at these low prices
    the bad is more shares outstanding
    the good is return of 9 million shares
    the good new is the conference call
    the bad news is when they open their mouths and talk nonsense
    the good news is the stock will tend to rise on next Tuesday
    the good, is, the shorts bought back lots of shares cheap
    the bad news, is the game continues
    ads are few
    sanofi is not working the doctors, sanofi is sandbagging at present
    script count is beyond logic , except that I am convinced they are not presenting the details to the sales field and the doctors.
    it is impossible to have such low results unless they are working to keep them low
    any determined effort to get scrips written would produce better results. suggestion?
    replace your sales management team leaders and take some marketing leaders with them

    Friday and the market is closed. so I shall explain again how we do math at mankind and in general.
    if mankind reported one million in sales it is for product sold to the joint venture at a price that includes all costs to run the plant. first qtr.
    the joint venture sold seven million dollars in sales which is based on the selling price to sanofi customers. first qtr.
    yes, they then subtract all costs from discounts to whatevers.
    that's how they reported 20 million in joint venture costs last qtr. they lost!!
    now sanofi says sales are 2 million , and, again, they have now stated last qtr was one million , that is march qtr.
    so seven million became one million in sales
    mankind had one million in sales last qtr
    this qtr? who knows with fuzzy math
    we are talking about sales not profits or loss
    mankind has to own up and explain proper numbers.
    the genius who keeps questioning the math keeps changing the numbers and just confuses anyone interested in accurate dollar numbers.
    remember we have mankind selling at cost to a joint venture
    the joint venture reports as part of sanofi
    actually mankind and sanofi should keep the joint venture as a separate identity
    o well, lets see about how much mankind lost next week in our c.c.
    also, will they spin the story line?
    return of bank share
    selling shares for bond holdings
    new lines
    advertising
    last thought...
    seems that sanofi should have seen all these fancy doctors by now and be ready to advertise to the public like they meant it
    a few magazine ads sounds like the old days of " at the rate of" if they , were out to gain market share,, then spend the money to get the results

    mankind needs a bean counter
    I say again... be prepared for this stock to hit a few cents higher in next week till they open their collective mouths and sprout nonsense to the stockholders.
    then the price declines
    great management team
    wonder who they represent??

    okay you found it
    seven million in deferred sales .
    so how do they now say it was one million in sales??
    because it was deferred sales?
    so sanofi did less than mankind in sales?

    I am just warming up. today we saw green
    was not suppose to happen!!
    I would never join a club that would accept me as a member
    how can anyone buy this stock.
    I was under the impression only john, Robert, kevin and , a few others were buyers or owners
    seems some new players are in the game
    scripts?
    conference call
    I demand a new count or recount

    looking for d
    they sold one million to the joint venture, not to sanofi
    then sanofi said the joint venture sold 7 million
    get your numbers straight as you are not right
    I know the numbers I published are correct
    I know they are reporting numbers with out stating exactly what they represent
    I know they can clarify this
    will they? I do not think so

    this is going to be funny today and next ten trading days
    shorts sell
    bond holders sell
    who buys?
    us , and those big players who want in at these bargain prices
    why should the bond holders get under five price??
    so, remember, for every seller we have a buyer
    do not be shocked if this price holds up and we get to hear from mankind and their great ideas

    mankind knew they were doing this bond deal before signing or on the deal.
    so if some get same deal only stretched out a few more years are happy to have the deal.
    the next group gets cash from mankind..about 24 million or so
    the third group..about 56 million get shares at daily closing bargain prices.
    these folks have a problem as they need to get price lower as possible to et best bargain.
    to do so, they need your cooperation to sell.
    so at , say, four dollars mankind issues about 14 million shares. however, they get back 9 million from the bank
    net, net??
    about 4 or 5 million more shares when we finish this deal.

    I just wrote a note on the sales numbers , and, got to thinking....
    if mankind reported one million sales in march qtr
    and, sanofi reported 7 million in sales
    so, if sanofi now says one million and two million in june qtr equals a grand total of three million pounds or whatevers.
    we are playing with two sets of numbers
    then, mankind should report two million in sales and sanofi should have been 14 million
    total sales should be 3 million and 21 million for sanofi
    what gives?
    a bookie gives better odds and numbers
    hope mankind clears this up

    now we know some questions and the answers
    tomorrow, or this morning, really sanofi reported 3 million in sales for the march and june qtr
    or, about 2 million for june qtr
    very confusing, as they last time said sales were 7 million and mankind reported 1 million in sales.
    its because they are using different numbers I assume.
    well, today should knock the wind out of mankind stock.
    I assume there is a bottom, but, not sure at what price.
    only play is the lower it goes, the more shares the bond holder gets.
    yet, at some point the shorts and new buyers see a bargain.
    so how low is low?
    the only other play, and I doubt it, is, they spin some story about the future or an announcement at mankind conference call
    they could say about july sales
    they could say a new deal
    they could say what ever it takes to stop this down game
    or, they just mumble and we drift to the magic down side number
    good news? in about tem days all the bonds are cleared off the table and we start a new spin game

    great news

    of course we have to see how the market sees it..i see it as a positive
    they will exchange some bonds for equal deal, just extended till 2018
    then, the majority is converted to stock..
    that answers the question of what happens to cash and cash flow
    this is positive for this stock
    now we are taking 10 days average price , stirring it up, and we get a conversion price which is the true value of the paper being issued
    great game

    great article Robert,
    you know the field very well. the stock however, is subject to a determination as to if it has a viable place in the market.
    I believe it does.
    so we are faced with selling a consumer benefit...no needles, better performance, against the doctors who all want to be last to write scripts.
    interesting.
    advertising builds reputation by constant signaling the message to the consumer.
    can the consumer convince the doctor that they too want to use afrezza?
    I think so, .
    I am convinced sales increase each and every day. I just cannot prove it as the data is incomplete from every one.
    last thought.
    once the street accepts sanofi as a partner who is here to stay, the sooner this stock will rise in price.
    would be great if sanofi would declare they are in the afrezza game till they win

    notice how the talk dries up when the stock declined in price?
    I see the latest trading down as pure short sellers in charge of trading.
    remember, shorters covered about 15 million shares and the stock did not move.
    that is because market makers let them cover for almost free. why>??
    now that the market makers let them cover , the shorties are selling again, and, the market makers drop the price.
    this cycle can only be broken by mankind saying pure and simple, the game plan.
    big secrets...convertible bond deal
    big secret afrezza sales in units and dollars
    big secret mass advertising
    big secret sanofi comments on afrezza
    big secret mankind hides out

    sunday morning, and I reflect on mankind stock price.
    I thought last week we would reach six dollars and trade at that level.
    I forgot about the power of the shorts to run the stock price in any direction.
    that said we now have three weeks to seek a direction.
    these bonds need to have a direction or decision as to either they are extended, paid in cash or stock, or what ever.
    one does not inform the public after the fact, or, the last day as legal requirements must be met.
    our friends at the bank should be preparing to return 9 million shares unless in the goodness of his heart, mankind management if so forgiving, they just extend them too.
    o well, back to five bucks a share!!!
    nice times magazine ad, shortie covered a few more million shares, and the stock price declines.
    I get it, I get it I get it
    if the shorts sell short, price declines
    if shorts buy back, price declines
    if earnings and advertising starts, price declines
    question of the day, is,, when does the stock price change direction??
