  • Roger, I can find no restrictions for gifts on the IRS website, they just refer to recipients as individuals and make no statement that I can see that they must be friends or family. Anyway, certainly Dr. KSS is our friend, at minimum an acquaintance. If we make our "gifts" with a disclaimer that there is no expectation of return value, then I don't see a problem. People use gofundme all the ti...

  • ScorpioRising, these "gifts" you are referring to would not be gifts because the donors are expecting something in return: Dr KSS's research. Plus it would not surprise me in the least to learn that most donors would believe that the amounts donated could be "written off". What is the problem if all the moneys contributed to DR KSS would be considered income? He would be able to write-off the ...

  • Excellent information Travis, would be interesting to see which sectors have the best strike rate over time and are some research houses only worth listening to in a particular sector....

  • (No ticker, responding to aladdin post 4:35 pm on March 28). So Mr. aladdin, I am wondering what your evidence and credentials are that would persuade me that you are justified in calling AF "Fraudstein". If anything, he is the anti-fraud spokesman in the biotech universe. Personally, I hate to see this very literate, ebulient forum tainted by crude and demeaning comments such as yours....

  • (No ticker, responding to LostOkie's post at 1:36 am on 3-29-17). Sour grapes Mr. LostOkie, could be you have owned too many of the wrong stocks. Calling AF Mr. "Fartstain" implies that you may believe you know more about biotech then AF. Your post proves that you are mistaken. I hate to see this forum tainted by demeaning personal attacks such as your crude comment about AF. Please desist....

  • Scorpio. The 14K means that you can give anything up to 14K per year per donee and get the money out of your estate without gift or estate tax obligation. You are correct, gifts are not taxable. Thus you can give things to people on their birthdays and at Christmas without much question. Money given to your spouse, children and charities are clearly gifts. Money given to your secretary, and e...

  • $AUPH Agree with what you're saying Anamorph. However, ‘Fraudstein' is nothing! I've always called him much worse, 'Fartstain'. But despite my personal feelings for him, I will admit the man can move a stock price and it's good to, for once, have him on my side. In the past he's brought my stocks crashing down more times than I can count....

  • Assume I am the "Supervisor" or "Trustee"". The paypal account is my bank account and has zero to do with Doc. I have a alias associated with the paypal account and my hotmail email account.Total privacy for me as "Supervisor" or "Trustee." As "Supervisor" or "Trustee" Doc comes to me and requests reimbursement for expenses he expended on behalf of his Gummy friends. A check or wire or othe...

  • Gosh, what a mess....

  • Roger, gifts are not taxed income by the receiver, the donors pay the taxes and only when gifts total over $14,000. So if 10 people gave Dr. KSS $14,000, he would receive $140,000 and none of it would be taxable income to him, nor requiring the donors to any tax....

  • I raised the subject of contributing expenses. I assume Dr. KSS does not want to consider contributions as income, which I believe they would be. I suggested forming an LLC, which anyone can do on line for practically nothing with or without a Fiji Island Law Degree. I would suggest that the LLC then give Dr. KSS a credit or debit card. I would be happy if he went first class and stayed in 6 o...

  • one way would be a miscellaneous account PayPal account setup in Dr. KSS's confirmed PayPal account can be used as a account and accessed by Dr.KSS in many ways even a paypal Visa card . Who ever sends money to him will need a confirmed PayPal account to send money to Dr.KSS. You can send money to someone just to send money miscellaneous . Just put money into your PayPal account to pay our pal D...

  • Jeffrey - - would you have preferred if Subra merely kept this info to myself and did not pass it along to us so that we can similarly take advantage of his friends lack of judgement? Not I! I'm sure that whatever shares Subra picked up did not move the market prior to passing along the information. Thanks Subra for that heads up....

  • Helen: I have an idea for the travel fund that I think would work. I would like to discuss it with you outside this thread. Is that possible? If you think it has merit, perhaps we can vet it with the panel you have previously consulted....

  • You are actually thanking Subramania who admitted that his friend artificially drove down the stock price of $AUPH in order to buy back at a lower level? And the worst part is that Subramania seems to be not bothered by that behavior "I am positive he will be loading up from here on" after a piece that he wrote where "he is not sure about most of the stuff which is there in his article." If yo...

  • Anamorph

    $AUPH tangential I don't see any need to call Adam Feuerstein 'Fraudstein.' While he is frequently called 'the most feared man in biotech' (and clearly loves it) he also gives credit where it's due and he has noted in the past that Aurinia are 'good people.' Here he went directly to the company, got a solid quote that demolishes the salient point of that SA hit piece, and put it out th...

  • No offense, but why are you friends with someone who has basically admitted that he is manipulating stock prices downward and is "loading up from here on"? I'm very surprised that you don't seem to have a problem with that behavior; very troubling. Long $AUPH...

  • $AUPH, it's funny, I can't find a consistent market cap now that I'm looking at other places. Bloomberg and Yahoo finance were in general agreement, but others were off by a lot. My E-trade also showed $250M. Perhaps zimmyzees estimate, from the recent capital raise, is the best one to use. In that case, fully diluted MC would be roughly $690M as of today....

    Well, I would say that after all our looking into things, this may be the point on which I have to back down. I wanted non-association with it so no one could ever accuse me of misusing contributions, but I think that same objective could be accomplished by having a supervisor or trustee, official or not, who just looks at the account's flow of money annually and reviews the receipts. Ultimately t...

  • Hi, thanks for your comments. There is another component in the instructions Glenn and I received: Doc did not wish to be durectly associated with an account which receives and disburses gift money from Gummies (extremely honorable of him!) A PayPal account, in whatever name it may be, would need to be linked directly to his personal account as beneficiary - this would not be compatible with th...

  • Only been here a few weeks. Joined because it was affordable and I'd caught wind that Dr KSS made some great picks. Just hoping you guys don't price me out...I also have to justify to my wife that people I don't know on the internet can actually provide value--she's quite skeptical in general about this sort of thing....

  • $AUPH (long) Including the recent capital raise, here's what I have, rounded off to the nearest .1 million: 79.1 million basic shares outstanding + 17.6 million warrants, etc. = 96.7 million fully-diluted shares outstanding....

    Wow, OK. I pulled up the E-trade site before I posted the number $250M. As of close today, that site has Aurinia's MC as $249.9M. It may be incorrect, but I was not yanking a number from the air. E-Trade and Yahoo give disparate OS numbers. I find that both sites have lots of errors....

  • Whatever you heavyweights decide to do, please don't forget that some of us are here to learn as well as profit. We would like to continue having access to the ongoing exchanges. I did not get in on $AUPH at the beginning but I was recently able to start a position for under $8.00 and I was able to do it by selling 30% of my $BLPH. I am sincerely hoping that within a couple of years this group ca...

    Thanks Peter. It's beena busy interval. At night I am hard at work on a chapter for an Australian medical textbook. I am moving back into a nearly 50 year old home that I've owned for 20 years. Soon after I bought it, my career took me out of state. It has need both significant fixes, such as to ducts and trim, as well as long-desired upgrades, such as removing carpet and refinishing the glorious ...

  • $AUPH, market cap - Doc, don't know where you're getting $250M market cap, but places I'm looking indicate that present market cap is $560M or so. With warrants, fully diluted, I think Cleveland said it's a few more. So at $600M market cap, 2.5B would be a 400% gain. Still wonderful, though....

  • OK thanks for a little more color. 1) When you use your own banking account you have total privacy at Paypal. No one knows who you are except Paypal. 2) So you or Glenn or anyone initiate a bank account for paypal Travel fund. You use a gmail or hotmail account. You set up a Paypal account alias name. This takes all of a few minutes to set up. There is no way anyone can identify who t...

  • Yes, many many such accounts exist, the difference is Doc did not wish to be involved in the setting up of such account. That makes it incompatible with the current banking laws (which I think not always fair and justified). And here we might be talking about a business account - involving a large number of contacts. Its very involved and financial requirements are different from individual ac...

  • Totally agree (on a separate supplement for the Dr KSS area). See my similar suggestion above....

  • Dr. KSS MD PhD

    Hi Peter: Yes, I feel that is accurate. The present market cap, not counting what things give back with today's ill-informed selling, is $250M, give or take. Given the broad applicability of voclosporin and anticipated global annual sales (they will partner for Japan...because drug approval and marketing in Japan is Byzantine), $2.5B is a reasonable takeover price for the company provided that pha...

  • re PayPal: The closest example that I can relate to, as far as quantity of "contributors" that can forward funds into a PayPal account, is a SuperBowl pool and other events that I enter every year. All participants contribute their 'entry fee' into the pool managers PP account. The funds flow from my PP account, which is linked to my checking and the funds are debited from my account. The funds ...

  • Cleveland and all. It's the privacy issue. To use a PayPal business account: Doc would have to use his own, or open a new bank account to be linked to the PayPal account. At the time we received Doc's guideline re. finding a suitable mechanism for gift giving, he clearly inducated to us: --He didnot wish to be involved in the opening and maintenance of account for receiving or disbursing th...
