    I completely missed this story with all thats happening in the market with GME and meme stocks.

    My first question would be why did you feel $106 was a good price? I have not followed this stock, but is the valuation up at $100 justified?

    Unfortunately you managed to grab the top end of a short term move. Does the company have a good future?

    If you have the stomach for it and that much scratch, only you can make the call if you can hold here, no one has that crystal ball. I work for a biopharma company and one of our affiliates had a phase 3 Alzheimer's drug a few years back and unfortunately it didn't succeed. I was very involved in the data readout and whoever has success with an Alzheimer's drug will have peak sales in the range of $1b per year. So if you hit here, who knows what the price will skyrocket too. I wish you the best of luck in whatever you decide to do.

    Biotech is very volatile. I bought Novavax last year at $40 and thought I made a good deal selling at 150. It went down to 80 again, but if I look at the price now....:(

    My guess is in the short-term, you are indeed screwed. That being said, I haven't followed this situation AT ALL, so I don't even know why it jumped over the last week, or if it's justified.

    I haven't been investing long and I'm not a trader so take what I say with a grain of salt. I looked at analyst ratings/targets on both InvestorObserver, WSJ, and TD Ameritrade. For you to break even the price would need to get quite a bit above the median target and be real close to the high targets. I realize analysts aren't always right but sometimes they are.

    If you are thinking long at all, yeah I think you're screwed, at least for a while.

    Well, at least it's built a new level of support here in the 60's.

    If I were that bullish on it (per research, natch) I would definitely dollar cost average down.

    Edit: Support in the 40's.

    Remember GAMBLER from the old place? He taught us how to play these in the trials and how to research them. Phase 1,2,3 . After the fluff they always fall until the next phase.

    How did you manage to pay $106 for this one? Was there an after hours spike on news?

    If you're dealing in round lots owned AND you feel that SAVA has some upside AND you're willing to play for a breakeven or better in two months:

    Buy an equal amount of shares at $49-ish and lower your cost basis to $77.50. Then see if you can put on a May 21st $50/$65 option repair for even money. If SAVA is above $65 at expiration, you'll net $80 for a small gain.

    Plan B? Live with Buy & Hope, waiting for $106 to be seen again.

    You're going to need to have SAVA religion if you are going to DCA.

    Its doing pretty good at the moment, but still you got it at 106 so I believe its a long way at least its going up a bit

    This is looking strong right now. It was a steep dip and went far underwater, but as long as it holds $65 it looks good.

    Next time you have 100k$ to invest, please come see me.

    I hope it covers for you! 106$ is a scary price. I cant imagine how you felt when it immediately lost half its value.
