Given the big dialogue on the meaning of twat and the differences of British English and American English slang I will throw out a term that is used flippantly in the U.S. by many who do not know it’s dictionary meaning–dork. I even hear family members kid each other with the term as if it’s a playful word for “dummy.” It literally means “the penis of a whale.” I always chuckle to myself when I hear people freely use this term.

KSS uses his knowledge to analyse a bio. That leaves you to do the DD. The decision to sign the cheque is yours alone. Kss didnt lose you 60%……you did. Did you place a stop loss?….I did and got out at $6 ish. RGDO is not dead yet so I can buy twice as many shares for the same money. So tell us; why do you think it wont recover?

The class action lawsuit announced today is somewhat concerning.
Perhaps this is typical when shares lose so much…the vultures swoop in.
Would be interested in thoughts from KSS re what might have happened. Typical market over-reaction?….

One can never tell right away whether there’s really anything legally questionable behind the news (like management hiding something), but as a general rule anytime a stock releases bad news and drops by 20-50% or more in a day, there will be lawyers issuing press releases as they troll for plaintiffs for lawsuits. They aren’t all meritless suits — there are, of course, companies that do terrible things and hide mistakes — but most of the time, in my experience, the filed or threatened lawsuits don’t ever amount to much. I’d always worry a lot more about the actual bad… Read more »

Travis; I totally agree with what you have said here. I might also remind all that the purpose of the infotainment (news) industry is selling … Either a product or a viewpoint. Airtime sold is quite profitable & the more you can instigate controversy the more you are likely to sell. Have you ever noticed how much is spent on political ads?

Two investment firms down-graded it today. One with target price of $2.00, the other with at a target price of $1.00. Management has been duplicitous at best. I’m out of this
POS. But rock on guys. Alan can tell you exactly what to do, as FOS as he is. Adios. I told you so. But, good luck to all.

You sound like a looser..your mental attitude is all wrong, i lost 60% ,,you must factor that all stocks dont go too plan..plan b must be thought out before putting any stock…PUT your saftey belt on JOHNNY BOY buy a beer & Pie,,,and wait it out…then put a stop loss on when it gets back up……

I to bought RGDO and I bought with eyes wide open. Yes I have lost some but I don’t believe in stop loss orders buying bio stocks and penny stocks is better than the lottery as I still have something left, I will let it ride and see what happens as I still believe there is value there and I may even throw another couple of hundred at it. Dr KSS gives us an opinion which I value but you still have to choose for yourself.

John: No one likes losing money. But the reason companies run studies of new agents is because we DON’T know the outcome. Same reason we hold sporting events…Don’t know the outcome. I’m not sure how anyone could reasonably expect a company to “know” of an allergic reaction which occurs in a small percentage of people. I mean come on. If Dr KSS had that knowledge he would not need to practice medicine/invest etc. Impugning his integrity/intentions for not predicting an unpredictable event is just unreasonable.

John, There was plenty of after-hours activity in RGDO after the announcement and before the stock opened the following day. At least through one of my brokers, extended hours orders can be placed in the morning from 7:00 – 9:28 AM ET, and in the evening from 4:00 – 8:00 PM ET. In the case of RGDO, something close to a million shares changed hands during those extended hours. I don’t believe stop-loss orders are valid for extended hours trading, so it is true that you would have had to been on top of the situation and place your order… Read more »

John Boyd: I doubt there’s anyone who hasn’t written something, then looked back and thought ‘I could have done that better’. It’s not necessarily ‘what’ you first wrote, but the way it was written. It appeared to be from some ‘jerk’ (your word) Yahoo! diss’er looking to kick a man when he was down just because he didnt predict the unpredictable. Of course he’s fallible ! Who, outside the organisation, without the benefit of ALL the financial/medical data, isnt ? There was no reasoned argument in your original post….no facts….no data…..just a vicious, poorly written, swipe at someone who has… Read more »

2 PS’s
1/ I totally agree with you that the Search (or perhaps ‘lurch’) function needs a lot of work to become more useful. If it worked better, you might find that I was among the first to suggest this to Travis ages ago.

2/ You say ‘ ….the weak management response to Dr. KSS and his devastating rebuttal.’
Do you mean KSS made a rebuttal after French’s post? If so, please point me coz I missed it and Im gagging to read it.
Thanks

Alan: I don’t kow if this is what John was referring to, but this is a link to the Doc’s reply to Peter Frenchs post. You must have seen it…you don’t miss much

I’m totally gobsmacked that I missed this segment. Thanks KennyG for pointing me. In fact KSS and I occasionally share ‘private’ emails, so I was (am) aware of much of this and quite a lot more thats still hiding in the cupboard. (dont worry, it doesnt affect anyones investment decisions) Many may wonder why he deserves the status of my (our) guru. Is it because he knows so much about the science ? How can I judge….I know zip about the science. Is it because he write so well? Well, he does…. but ok, so he doesnt suffer fools gladly…..in… Read more »

Well said Alan. KSS has no crystal ball, but he knows a heck of a lot more about the science behind various biotechs than the rest of us (makes us look like dorks) and I will also vigorously defend him against any who intimate that he is gaming anyone. I too can smell a manipulator a mile away and he is definitely not in this camp. Even companies with solid ideas and solid science can have unpleasant surprises so a good strategy is a shotgun approach of smaller positions based on KSS recommendations with perhaps a few of your own… Read more »

To all: I do not question the integrity of Dr. Kss or his grasp of science and broad based knowledge. What I did protest and still do is confusing potential long term rewards with warnings of short term pitfalls. Some of the people mentioned in my last post were understandably upset for their treatment while posting short term financial warnings and I would have been too. I personally can live with the risks associated with scientific successes and failures as in one way or another I have lived with this all my life and honest scientists adapt. Even scientific fraud… Read more »

John I was out of biotech as well but got back in after seeing a possible edge through the revealing of the science By Dr.KSS. I too am quite uneasy about remaining in bio,,,not because of the DR. but external world situation changes. You express my thinking well.
