I have always viewed Al's involvement as a positive. He's obviously committed to seeing Afrezza through approval and has an incredible track record of innovation and success.

The CRL it received last time around was not very encouraging as I recall and it dropped somewhere around 70% or so over the span of a few weeks. If you are comfortable investing in what is essentially a single drug pipeline that will make or break the company eventually (granted, if results that are coming out end up being good, the stock will skyrocket), it might worth it...generally when I'm looking at something with a limited pipeline and a potential blockbuster drug I want to see amazing trial results (a company I mentioned earlier, CLSN, is something that fits the bill for me), otherwise I like to see some diversity. This company IS Afrezza. It has nothing else.

The previous CRL was primarily due to the device switch from their first inhaler to the dreamboat inhaler before FDA submission. MNKD had a strong database of test results with the initial device, but much less with the Dreamboat. The current trials will attempt to link the current device with the old database.

And yea, funding is/was another concern. The latest round of dilution last month should keep them afloat until late 2014. They've said that they aren't interested in a partner until they in a more advantageous negotiation position. ie when more trial results come in or approval.

Big move out of BAC. The stress tests are coming around again soon, and my thoughts are that investors of bac and Wfc want too see a raise in the dividend closer to normal levels. I suspect that a big raise for bac won't happen until 2014

Moynihan said as much. He seems to think they'll be ready for a dividend or buy back after the stress tests. Not very likely IMO.

I hope he hasn't put the cart before the horse again, the market was certainly non-plussed with them being denied the dividend in the first round.

You have to think there's a > 0 chance that future Countrywide lawsuit settlements will still be measured in billions. Until that's sorted out, it's tough to see them paying out.

Agreed, I believe they will factor that into the stress test, I assume that they must at this point.
post #2968 of 5410
Not 100% sure but I don't believe so.

I believe it tests market-related losses in a scenario where...
Quote:
an unemployment rate of 13%, a 50% decline in stock prices and another 21% in housing prices

vs the ability of Tier 1 capital to absorb that.

I'm guessing - and someone pls correct me if this is wrong - reserves against legal liabilities are not Tier 1 capital. So to the extent that they've budgeted for that, it won't affect the stress tests. But could affect a non stress test related discussion about ability to pay a dividend.

I'll probably get schtick for this, but I would start with Jim Cramer's books.

That is hilarious. All indications are that he is totally underwater in the role.
