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.

Beware Buying Biotech on Basis of Ballyhoo

Oct. 21, 2009

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!

Oct. 21, 2009

Bossanova beat? I'm buyin'! :)

Oct. 21, 2009

Response to post #1: Maybe you can bop to it. I'm 73. I can only creak to it. Best, Don Bauder

Oct. 21, 2009

creakin' is totally acceptable for my dance partners dbauder..hit it SDaniels!!!!!!

Oct. 21, 2009

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

Oct. 21, 2009

Oct. 21, 2009

Response to post #3: That's the bossanova beat: buy! buy! buy! bye-bye! boo-boo! Best, Don Bauder

Oct. 21, 2009

"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

Oct. 21, 2009

uh oh...nap time

Oct. 21, 2009

me too...maybe...hahahahahahaha

Oct. 21, 2009

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...

Oct. 21, 2009

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

Oct. 21, 2009

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

Oct. 21, 2009

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.

Persnickety proletarian perfectionists prefer principled porpoises provide Papal protection.

Oct. 21, 2009

I bought QCOM some 14 or 15 years ago after I read your UT column and never had a regret.
Any more like that?

Oct. 21, 2009

principled "perpoises," my princeling :)

re: #23: Pure, peerless pelorus (as per your penmanship:), my pet peetweet. :)

Perhaps people prefer parody to Proust.

Best bet? -- Bauder's bylines.

Oct. 21, 2009

People pine for peripatetic parodies OF Proust:

Response to post #11: Well, 70 is close enough to 29. You're doing better than many economists do. Best, Don Bauder

Oct. 22, 2009

Response to poset #12: Do you suppose bossa nova means new boss? I know plenty of people who have one, despising same. Best, Don Bauder

Response to posts #s19 and 20: You folks are f***ing fantastic. Best, Don Bauder

Oct. 22, 2009

Response to post #21: I haven't looked at Aethlon stock today. Maybe you missed an opportunity. Then again... Best, Don Bauder

Oct. 22, 2009

Response to posts #s 22 and 23: "Persnickety perfectionist" sounds redundant. Best, Don Bauder

Oct. 22, 2009

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

Oct. 22, 2009

Response to posts #25 and 26: Has anyone alluded to a peripatetic panhandler yet? Best, Don Bauder

Oct. 22, 2009

Response to post #27:

To read Proust You must be goosed.

If you pronounce it Prowst You're probably soused.

Best, Don Bauder

Oct. 22, 2009

Response to post #28: See, I told you someone would use peripatetic. Best, Don Bauder

Oct. 22, 2009
