Uveitis Development orphan status

By xiexgp@gmail.com, November 20, 2014

I just read (watched) a presentation from Mike Ward of Wall Street Insights & indictments for a biotech newsletter touting a $4 stock for a $28 million California company that has just received (or is about to) orphan status for a new Uveitis drug.

ABBV has one listed, but is a $65 stock.

Any one have a clue as to what this company is?

I also spent the hour plus listening to Mr. Wards presentation, not wanting to rush into a $1950 investment on ?. I found this info on Drugs.com. EDMONTON, March 26 /CNW/ – (ISA:TSX): Isotechnika Inc. today announced that their partner, Lux Biosciences, Inc., reported the results from the three Phase 3 LUMINATE trials investigating voclosporin oral capsule (LUVENIQ(TM) or LX211) for the treatment of uveitis. Voclosporin is a next generation calcineurin inhibitor that Isotechnika has licensed to Lux for ophthalmic indications. The data show a positive effect on ocular inflammation and a safety profile consistent with the expected use in… Read more »

I too am listening to this presentation. After some research I believe the company is XOMA.

I too listened to the presentation. He said it was a California based company around $4. Xoma is the only one I found.

I found XOMA as well. I thought it was it. So I tried to buy it. But it went up so fast, so I had to buy Market Price. I did buy at 5.40. It fits all the descriptions. About $4 and market value around $28M.

Correction: About $28M revenue, not market value. It is also an CA company.

I found some confirmation about this tiny company is indeed XOMA. See the link below:

Hope we all make a good return. Take care.

Xoma-I looked at insider trading information and fidelity showing a lot of insider selling over the last several months. Also institutional buying slightly positive current quarter at positive 400k and negative previous quarter with net negative 11.5 million shares outflows ?

Baker Brothers sold 2,300,000+ shares over 3 days last week. That doesn’t look like cause for optimism.

I looked into this orphan drug claim and it seems to me that there are a few companies that have received Orphan drug status or a cure in trials for a treatment for Uveitis. ABBV has one also XOMA and another is ISA on the TSX I believe ISA was a stock in Toronto that halted trading a few months ago and most likely everyone lost their money. ABBV trades at $65-$68.00 per share, so there is no one pushing this stock. I think XOMA is the stock they are pushing and it looks like a classic pump and dump… Read more »

So Mike Ward is promoting nothing but his 1950. Wish he would donate me 10000 shares since he has such conviction.

Well, thanks for sharing. And, yes, I did some research also, instead of paying the $1950 fee for the stock’s name. Anyway, I took a gamble today, and bought 500 shares of XOMA today @ $3.72. FYI, as soon as I purchased the shares, it took a dive to $3.59, but it looks like it’s going to recover. lol In my opinion, according to the MACD, it’s going to recover nicely. Good luck to XOMA longs. 🙂
