wegotdatwood, man although a $2B company, MNKD is such a speculative play you should only buy it if you don't mind losing money, because there is a big chance you could.
I know it doesn't sound like much to lose $10k at your age, but if you factor in a normal market and 40 years of compounding $10k might end up costing you $800k-$1M in long term compounding if you lose it all today on some speculative play like this.
Stick to the dividend payers, you might not strike it rich quick, but you will sleep at night.
Pretty good news here. The largest diabetes research foundation in the world and the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foudation are doing artificial pancreas trials and are using Mannkind's inhalation insulin in conjunction with the study. LINK
just sold my TSRX so i was looking at it today. thinking about 400-500 shares of MNKD. want to see how it acts tomorrow.
Still in SNTS long.
also looking at ORMP, who is directly competing with MNKD for the diabetes treatment. i tend to like the idea of the oral med, but MNKD product would be a game changer. other pharm specs i'm looking at include ATRS, DRTX, and CEMP.
