Stock of biotech Aethlon Medical enjoyed a big ride this week on the basis of a news release touting a product, but the bloom is already off the rose. On Tuesday, the tiny company sent out a release saying that its Hemopurifier product "is effective in capturing the current pandemic strain of the H1N1 swine flu virus," according to the release. The study was purportedly done "by third party researchers approved by the Uited States Department of Health and Human Services," said the company. The stock soared Tuesday. At one point it was up more than 50%. It backed off, but by day's end it settled at 36 cents, up from 29 cents. Today (Oct. 21), it closed at 32 cents.

This has all the features of a classic penny-stock "pump and dump" swindle. "Approved by the US Dept of Health and Human Services". Yeah, right!

Response to post #2: I had the same suspicions: the study was done by an outfit "approved by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services." Hmmm. Just what does that mean? Best, Don Bauder

"hit it SDaniels!!!!!!"

Mr. Bauder may remember this one from Edie Gorme, not true bossanova, but...

I was at a dance when he caught my eye Standin' all alone lookin' sad and shy We began to dance, swaying' to and fro And soon I knew I'd never let him go

Blame it on the bossa nova with its magic spell Blame it on the bossa nova that he did so well Oh, it all began with just one little dance But then it ended up a big romance Blame it on the bossa nova The dance of love

Oh and nan, Pere Bauder may be more interested in the perpetual plummeting of prices, than he is with our pirouettes across his pages, or Pike's piques, or the odd assortment we are of princesses, pollywogs, and parolees, or a pursing of lips over such prattle as of the peregrinization of weather balloons...

Preposterous! You propose the perennial new permutations of our pontifications might perchance wax prosaic?

SDaniels Oct. 21, 2009 @ 4:29 p.m.

Possibly! I predict that our Periclean purpose will provide a perfect, perlocutionary periodization of pride in our plumage.

I had the chance to buy 2,500 shares of Aethlon yesterday but passed on it because"by third party researchers approved by the United States Department of Health and Human Services"just means exactly what Visduh alluded to. My momma didn't raise no dummy! That and I'm taking a pounding on Wall Street lately.

Any more like that?

Response to post #24: Whether or not to thank me depends on what price you paid. As I recall (and I am not bothering to look this up), Qualcomm, adjusted for splits, peaked at $100. It's now a bit over $40 last time I looked. However, there was a huge, ephemeral spike that makes the all-time high around $100, so the odds are that you didn't buy then. Best, Don Bauder
