  1. I bought in to CTBO on Thursday 6/2/16, at about $3.00/share, using a significant amount of retirement money. I would be proud to be an investor in a Company that is fighting Alzheimers and Parkinson diseases. However, I am a bit shaken by the pump and dump activity, having seem my investment increase in value to $3.59 (about a 20% gain) within a week, only to have it plummet to an interday low of about $1.54 on Monday 6/13/16. As of Monday 7/4/16, it is at $2.32. Could someone give me input on how to best approach my investment?

    1. Very, very few pump and dump companies ever achieve success and in the few times that has happened that was many years after initial investors experienced large losses on the initial pump and dump (Jimmy Choo is the only such company I am aware of). I am not aware of any medical company that was a big pump and dump that eventually achieved success. With an early stage pharma or biotech company the one thing the company needs is tens of millions of dollars in investments from people that believe in the company. CTBO insiders or large investors are the ones paying for the pump and dump so that tells you how much they believe in the company. With a market cap of $62 million and total assets of only $100,000 CTBO stands no chance in hell of ever succeeding for its current investors. I am 99.99% sure that investors in the company will suffer losses in excess of 90% over the next 2 to 5 years (and likely sooner).
