I was chatting to a couple of my best pals yesterday evening, both have pretty stressful jobs, and as ever on a Friday night they were just happy as it was the weekend. A normal conversation we have shared the last 8 years, but for the first time in that time, I thought so am I. Every day had just felt the same for so long, but it feels different now, whilst my health hasn"t changed at all, it was never going to, just going to bed and waking up knowing I am cancer free has lifted me back to a time that had long gone. So, apart from the markets being closed, lol, (especially at the moment)!! looking forward to chilling out , not thinking too much and indulging in a few diversions to ensure that is the case.
Never lost my faith here, although it was seriously tested a few times, believe me, and perhaps even more interested now in what others think too. Good to hear from Crackin last night, newbies are our blood , and it would be good to hear from many more who benefitted by the demise of City Financial. Someone posted this yesterday.............""Scancell stands at 9 pence - I'm very pleased myself but not about to slap any backs and rejoice"". I feel so very different to that, I found the comment very downbeat, unnecessary, although I know where it came from, I would far prefer to say that three months ago I could ony get 3.30p for my shares, and now they are nearly treble that...............so I will certainly slap a few backs and humbly rejoice, knowing IMHO there is so much more to come.
At 18.56 last night I posted this.......................
"""Just A ThoughtFri 18:56
Not often, but sometimes, we hear people criticise the BOD for the poor performance of our share price"""
Again I kind of understand that thought but really have never agreed with it. Perhaps those who have said that, still believe it, would like to finish reading the whole post, and explain to me some examples of why they believe what they do, or retract it if that is the case. It seems to me from the moment JC set out our stratagy when he took over the Chair, we knew what we needed to do to command the price we felt we were worth and the focus became internal, increasing our staff, at all levels to ensure clinical development would allow us to enter human trials by mid 2019 and through 2020 for starters. That being the case, and it is not only in retrospect if anybody still feels the BOD were incompetent, could they please explain to us why, and what if anything they could have done differently? Would really appreciate hearing all viewpoints, a good time I feel to clear a few unwanted elephants out of the room, as we start our comeback with back to back trials. ATB
I have just been catching up on the BB the last few days, glad I have otherwise I would have missed your post today, and like many of your other posts it was one I liked, and on the same lines as my previous comment ""how far can we go"". Just to refresh...................................
Market Cap £40mFri 09:41
What value a company with a suite of cancer busting treatments ?
We are now well on the way to knowing if this is what have. Early trial patients still heathy, years later.
Some very serious upside here as positive news comes in.
In for the ride

The M/Cap finished the day at £42m, and reminds me of my disbelief when we crashed under £20m just three months ago.
You mention 40m, 400m,and 4b, a spectrum of figures we have heard from many shareholders over the last few years. A case could be made for any one of those figures, I myself said I would be happy to see 50p, not because that is what I think we could be worth, in time, but at the time it was 10x the M/cap that Vulpes came in at, now a mere 5x that value. We have seen again some remarkable deals in our sector from the Majors, and still so many of them are waiting to go into trials, we have at least compelling data from our SCIB1 Mono trial behind us, which has made many sit up and the return to trials whilst exciting for all of us is barely restricted to just shareholders.
Sentiment has returned, volumes continue to rise, and we know in the not too distant future data will come. The sell off from City Financial and the stake purchase from Vulpes has injected new life into Scancell, and it is IMHO that we shall see the benefit from any future fund raising now we have Vulpes on Board. I was looking at the RNSs received this week by SLN and Midtech Pharma, the sector is very alive again, so whilst I have always been in for the ride, I am delighted I got my passport renewed, I believe this journey will take us to places we never dreamt of before.
Catch yer tomorrow guys. Patient Recruitment will be advised to us in the coming weeks, Monday is the fourth such week. ATB
Knowlesi, yes I have heard that too. Even TF made a comment today that was from something I suggested to him, which has probably been posted over there and is worthy of discussion. It is no fault but my own that many on there see me as the poster i was when I was very knew, and the disparaging comments have followed me for some years. I was very grateful to them when I did go over there a couple of years ago to clear up a few issues, nobody treated me badly at all, and i am sure you haven"t heard me criticise any particular poster in that time, just that I find the site very aggressive and rather repetitive, but again that could have changed a lot.
It is no secret that I have been shocked and saddened by the attacks on me this week here, deeply saddened by accusations which are anything but true, but have questioned my whole personna, called me a liar, not to be trusted and an attention seeker. I have in the same context been lifted by so many supporting me in various ways but the damage has been done and whilst Admin are now removing them they were slow to react, and no it was not me who reported them, I just don"t want to go there ever again.
Knowlesi, me and you made a pact between us, noticed probably by very few not to get involved in personals. We have both kept to that and as I have said many times to you we can all go back years and have some very strong feelings about certain issues. I know I did, when I moved over to ADVFN for a short while, not proud that i released my anger in the manner i did, but it was over and I returned. It is imperative we have different views on any BB, different perspectives, but i just felt lets move on to the here and now. I don"t feel the need to reiterate what has been said, but lets all try to put forward our beliefs without causing endless rows and going back to ancient days to hang on to bad feelings. It was noticeable to me anyway that last week, like many weeks before it the BB was free of pettiness until this week. Nobody wants it, we have much to discuss and as cars and me often say, we got the timing wrong as many did years back. Lets grow from that, it is the here and now that matters and frankly with most of us having 7 years experience on these boards we are all better than that. Lets enjoy the share, leave ancient personals to rust and go forward on the here and now.
Have a good weekend buddy, I mean that sincerely
Crackin, glad to hear that. I met Timbo a few years back at an OXT AGM which I went too with Krafty, a shareholder in both, and got the opportunity to speak to RG in some detail. He cut rather a lonely figure that evening, with the share price so low and it took Krafty to pull me away as it was time to leave.
In hindsight whilst I was surprised to see him there, I had a preconception about him, one which followed me out of there. I am delighted in your case you held off buying to a later stage, largely due to City Financial. As cars said many of us LTH got the timing wrong, some still have very large averages, but some had the balls and funds (like cars) to reduce their averages. I managed too by adding over the years, my lst purchase my biggest in a day was the £6k i added in January at 7.9,7.7 and 7.5 which broke my heart as we fell even further as soon as but now all three buys are at least showing a profit and overall my average is between 14/15 from an initial 41p.
I personally have an adversion to that BB, others don"t, so glad in your case it has helped you no end.
Knowlesi, I think it is time I had a look at David Evans posts, I was sorry to hear he is not well with a nasty condition, I wish him well and am always pleased to read how well regarded he is in the Industry.
Time for a cuppa, and perhaps catch a film before retiring again, I am thrilled with our share performance of late and if ever I needed a few healthy diversions, now is the time, long may it continue.
Not often, but sometimes, we hear people criticise the BOD for the poor performance of our share price. There is no doubt the share price has performed very poorly the last few years, but from the point RG retired as CEO, and after numerous attempts (we will never how many) to finalise a commercial deal, it seems obvious in retrospect we were set for 2/3 years of clinical development in all platforms.
To facilitate this we expanded our staffing levels (as promised by JC) from 11/12 to 23, 12 of which who hold Phds. So is it incompetence from the BOD? as some have stated, or just the reality of timelines for two platforms to reach the gold standard we are hoping to achieve from forthcoming trials.
I have long believed the latter, and the performance of the share price recently seems to me to reflect the progress we have made, the reputation of Lindy in the Oncology World, and the enormous potential in our pipelines which is further boosted by a market that at last values the immuno oncology market so highly. Timing!!!
I for one am clapping my hands, we have had to endure some hard times it is IMHO that now we have so much to look forward too, and I am very excited.
I remember only too well three months ago my P/F showing just over £8k from an investment of just under £32k, today it showed £19,600 when I woke around 2, and I didn"t buy more during that period. I trust there are numerous newbies here who have done very well, and for the numerous LTH there P/Fs will reflect mine, Well done to all of us. How far can we go?? It doesn"t bear thinking about, but yes enjoy the moments, we have all been through the ones we prefer to forget.
Have a good weekend all, well done and hopefully next week we just might hear about Patient Recruitment and Dosing for the SCIB1 trial. I for one cannot wait. ATB
Volume 1.7m....................40 Trades
And double figures tantalisingly near. Perhaps news next week on Patient Recruitment and Dosing will see us sail through double figures. A fantastic week for all of us (again), have a great weekend all.
Harley. Really not sure about closed periods, like I said pure speculation, as was the suggestion that we presented to just 70/80 small PIs. Did anybody study their CVs and Bank Accounts and Investments.
All i know is our volumes are ever increasing off the back of tremendous news, but not on daily new news. Today we already over 1.3m, we are seeing sells as we have always done, but this time we have buyers, just snapping them up. It feels so good, for all of us, and I cant keep repeating how much I want to see us treating patients in trials, and that my friend will be very soon.
