The WHO (I'm not kidding- World Health Organization) has officially declared the Swine Flu as a world wide pandemic. This past week, the WHO raised the Swine Flu to "Phase 6", it's highest level for global risk. The Phase 6 alert does not mean the severity is increasing- it means the spread is more global. The Phase 6 ranking opens the door to accelerated production and research on a number of possible therapies and vaccines.
One company getting major recognition for a possible therapy is AMEX listed Cel-Sci (AMEX: CVM), a stock I have been following on and off for many years. Last week, CVM announced its L.E.A.P.S (Ligand Epitope Antigen Presentation System) technology, could represent an immune based therapy for swine flu, and had shown promise. At the Naval Medical Research Center in Silver Spring, MD, L.E.A.P.S has demonstrated an ability to enhance the body's natural protection against many different kinds of diseases. The Navy is focused on using the therapy to treat Malaria. This past week, Cel-Sci announced it was developing an immune based treatment for the Swine Flu, and the stock went absolutely ballistic.
Cel-Sci traded 32 million shares in one day last week, the highest volume in its more than 20 years of being a publicly traded company under the ticker CVM. CVM also surged from about $.25 to $.80 in one day. Pretty crazy.

Coming Attractions You might recall an edition I published about a month ago suggesting it was time to step back, take a look at every idea, and set some cash aside to get past tax selling season and into December. The time has come. I suspect December will be a good month in the markets. Small stocks...

You Asked For It; You'll Get It As expected, lots of you read about my Interclick (NASDAQ: ICLK) idea over the weekend, and sent me the same comment: Why didn't you tell us about this one back in May when it was still under $1 on the Bulletin Board? Point taken- after all, isn't that the goal of investing...
