I bought more IBIO at $1.55 yesterday, they recently partnered with IBM to start fastpharming a production vaccine to Covid19. Back in 2009, and again in 2014, their production of a vaccine for H1N1 swine flu spiked the stock price to $55, and $32 a share.

Who knows? The volume has not been super high the past few days.

They have $700m in cash or somewhere around there so I would not expect any dilution, plus they have quite a number of partnerships with potential milestone payments in the multiple billions.

At $9 a share, the market cap is around 1.25B

Double blind placebo is continuing.

I would be more comfortable if this was listed on NASDAQ and maybe it will be soon. Time will tell.
This took off again this week. Now at 6.93 SP from 3.1 SP. My $17K on a 5K investment is now $41K.

Double blind placebo is over next week and up listing coming soon. Would love to see this get off OTC.

This stock just joined the "Russell 3000" on Friday which sent the stock soaring, and hopefully more PRs on Monday for a big green week.

Currently closed at $2.15, but up .21 in after hours trading to $2.36. It hit $2.69 earlier in the day. Monday should be epic !

I took a little SGMO off the table at $9.86 (had a bit too much in Robinhood) and just bought 2000 shares of ETTX at $2.70. Strange little bio that I don't know that much about except they have been awarded a decent contract today and yet the stock has not budged. I am hoping the news catches on and I can sell later today or this week for a bit of a profit.

If anyone wants to dig into ETTX (Entasis) and give me their opinion on it, feel free. It looks like a decent lottery ticket on the outside, with a IPO in 2018 near $15 a share, now trading in the mid $2 range with a large major shareholder purchase recently at $2.50, small contract award just this past week which has not really hit the news, and phase III trial of "a broad spectrum β-lactamase inhibitor with sulbactam" underway.

Market cap is tiny.

I don't buy and sell on trends and really don't care about charts or tea leaves.

What I do is look for cigar butts discarded on the street and see if there is a puff or two left in them.

I just looked at the insider, huge purchase by another company.
E_TRADE_FINANCIAL_Quotes_Research.jpg

Press release:
https://investors.entasistx.com/news...nd-tranche-35m

In addition to the shares issued also gives Innovia the right to appoint 2 people to Entasis Board of Directors. So looks like a sizeable dilution. Possible positioning for takeover?

Interesting, this was formed by spin-out from AstraZeneca back in 2015. Then went IPO several years later. Have burned through sizeable chunk of cash, having raised over $80 million. Maybe this is ready to realize it's potential but so feels like it's just a cash burn instead of cash cow. Contract they just signed is $3 million with up to $15 million so not life changing for the company who seems to burn through that pretty quickly. Unsure for now.

Sorry about that but some of these are low float low volume micro caps and things like RSI really don't apply IMO.

Insider purchases or sells, CEO's leaving, cash burn and dilution risk, things like that are what I look for.

Yes I agree with you here on the unsure for now. I am not heavy into it, just $5,000 or so. It does have some potential to spike really high though with the low float.

Oops, something going on, ETTX did a trade for $1.7 pre market, down 40%. Well that buy went south in a hurry!

edit: Or a ticker misprint? no news. LOL I love biotech investing.

edit2: It looks like someone fat fingered a pre-market sell of 500 shares at $1.71 instead of $2.71.

LMAO if true.

My July 17 ITCI covered call is getting near completion and will be a nice $8000+ profit but dang if the August calls on ITCI are juicy!

You can sell a August $25 call on ITCI for $7!

So tempted...
