Diabetic Investor's Kliff says the number of patients who meet that condition is tiny and meaningless. Generex still needs to get Oral-lyn approved by the FDA before it can fully market the drug in the U.S.
The ADA's Robertson says the only people who worry about insulin injections are people who don't have diabetes. "Oral insulin, respiratory insulin, buccally delivered insulin are all marketing driven technologies, they are not driven by the real need of diabetes patients."
Generex shares trade for around 60 cents. I know that looks cheap but don't bother with an oral insulin delivery technology that's not going anywhere.
I had a mini debate on Twitter this week with a @jimcollins, a Sequenom (SQNM) bull who was exacerbated by what he considered to be an unjustified drop in the Sequenom's stock following Monday's quarterly conference call."I didn't hear anything on the conference call to cause a 20% drop," wrote @jimcollins. In a later tweet, he remarked, "Did people expect Harry [Hixson, Sequenom's CEO] to say, 'If we don't get a Down's Syndrome test I will commit seppuku!?'" In response to @jimcollins, I said the problem was not with the conservative and cautious comments made Monday by Hixson regarding Sequenom's effort to resurrect its gene-based Down's test, nor was it a surprise that he declined to offer financial guidance. The problem was that a lot of momentum-fueled Sequenom investors expected too much, too soon. On a related note, David N. emails, "I am a shareholder influenced from the Cantor Fitzgerald report with a $16 price target. How can that report differ so much from your report?" They don't call it sell-side research for nothing. Analysts like those at Cantor are selling you (investors) research in the hope that you (investors) will buy the firm's stock-trading services. The investment bankers who work at shops like Cantor use the research penned by the firm's analysts to woo companies to become investment-banking clients.
