Peregrine Investors: Once Bitten, Twice Shy

This morning, Peregrine Pharmaceuticals (NASDAQ: PPHM  ) released additional details regarding its revised analysis of bavituximab in non-small cell lung cancer. Today's release comes less than a week after investors totally misinterpreted clinical data on the drug used in pancreatic cancer, initially bidding up shares before a sharp sell-off later in the day. As Brenton Flynn outlines in the video below, this time around the investor reaction has been much more rational.

The ying to Peregrine's yang?

    I had hope for you guys after your last video on PPHM. I was convinced that you were FINALLY starting to get it. Not so.

    You appear to have no clue how hedge funds & big pharma operates in light of today's news.

    For the record; it should have opened at $4+ today. Manipulation can be a bit of a biotch however when hedge funds missed the boat & BP needs to keep the price in check.

    Obviously you won't get it until partnership is announced in the next few weeks and the stock explodes like Spindletop.

    Once Written, Twice Shy(ster)

    It has come to my attention that you merely fill in for Adam Fraudstain of The Street when hedge funds find it impossible to put a negative spin on recent news.

    I apologize to myself for wasting my time in trying to educate you. Best of luck in Adam's school of bashing. I hear The Street offers excellent benefits as well as an idiot protection program when they are ready to discard you.
