Seeking Alpha removed five articles from its web site Sunday, all of which included an identical paragraph about Galena and its experimental breast cancer vaccine Neuvax. The articles, published over the past two months, appeared to have been written by three different people all under the cloak of anonymity using the aliases Elegant Trader, Momentum Trading and Thomas Option Hunter.
After looking into the matter, Seeking Alpha discovered that a single individual wrote all five articles.
"We investigated this situation and have identified an individual who is responsible for these articles. As this person has operated contrary to our editorial and ethical principles, we have shut down their access to the site," said
Seeking Alpha Managing Editor George Moriarty, in an email response to questions regarding the articles.
