So at this point it might be worth determining how much money you would be willing to lose completely, in exchange for the possibility of a 450% return on your money, within a year or two.

When you come up with that figure, then you may wish to consider investing half of that amount at the current level. Then, if MNKD drops further, to the monthly moving average line, for example (currently at $4.22), then you may choose to add to your position, using the remaining half of your money that you are willing to lose completely.

Using the above-outlined strategy, you will either earn a very nice return on a small investment in MNKD or an even better return on an even larger investment -- or you will lose 100% of your investment, which you were willing to lose, anyway.
