Fuma - I would love to read your thoughts on new-to-me biotech companies!

Marsuculix - I am just dipping my toes in biotech as an investing proposition after breaking the ice with Alkermes last year. Most of my IRA is in longer-term, larger-cap stocks, but I am an RN with a background in research (I once a tiny biotech/research lab out of my basement!) and as a wannabe scientist (and wannabe retiree!), I have become more intrigued in the investment side of things.

I have small positions in the few stocks I've mentioned, and a TEENSY (but fun - whee! What a ride!) position in Bionovelus (ONOV)just because I like the principal's ideas and drink a lot of coffee.

I also have a very tiny position in CVR Med (CRRVF), which I can't for the life of me understand why I originally purchased and is now not worth selling. Lesson learned - don't buy biotechs w/o extra due diligence - and especially not after coming off a call shift without sleeping on it! ;-)

I see you are long AKAO and have been pondering a position in that but have been hesitating. Do you have any comments on timing wrt them?
