VFC's Stock House: Immunocellular Therapeutics May Be Immune To A Broad Market Downturn

(EMAILWIRE.COM, April 10, 2012 ) New York, NY -- With a new trading quarter upon us, the broad markets as a whole look ready to take a downswing after a strong first quarter and months of running higher as the global economy demonstrated a strength and resiliency not seen for years. Although a downswing - or "correction", as some might term it - could be in the works, there are some companies and stocks out there with enough pending news, catalysts and developments that may allow them to weather the storm and outperform the near-term market trends.



Immunocellular Therapeutics (IMUC) is one that has already well-outperformed the market this year and could maintain strength into any general downswing.



Over the course of the past six months Immunocellular has emerged from one of a quite few speculative Phase II cancer immunotherapy companies to become a potential front-runner in the next generation of such treatments.



Fueled by encouraging survival data from early trials and positive developments on the business front, IMUC has soared past the two dollar mark with ease and even breached the three dollar barrier for a period, a level that the share price still flirts with on a near-daily basis, even as the market as a whole is on a breather.



Other developments and pending catalysts also bode well for both the short and long term future of Immunocellular.

U.S. judge grants injunction against anti-abortion activists
6 Feb 2016 at 9:54am

A U.S. judge on Friday granted a preliminary injunction stopping the distribution of surreptitious videos taken by anti-abortion activists who alleged Planned Parenthood staff discussed the illegal sale of aborted fetal tissue. The National Abortion Federation (NAF), a nonprofit representing abortion providers, accused the Center for Medical Progress and its founder, David Daleiden, in a lawsuit last year of illegally infiltrating and recording its private meetings. San Francisco federal judge William Orrick last year issued a temporary order prohibiting the distribution of the videos, which he extended on Friday until the litigation is over.

6 Feb 2016 at 4:26am

Australia will intensify testing for the Zika virus in Queensland state where Aedes mosquitoes are found, authorities said on Saturday, adding that two new cases among local residents were the result of travel to affected countries. Queensland's government has earmarked A$400,000 ($283,000) to boost laboratory capacity, particularly in the northeastern city of Townsville, where testing will begin on March 1. A A$1 million public education campaign will also be rolled out in the state, which is on high alert for any entry of the disease from Australia's Asian and Pacific neighbors.



Is Chipotle a riskier place to eat? Hard to know
6 Feb 2016 at 4:12am

By Julie Steenhuysen and Tom Polansek CHICAGO (Reuters) - In recent months, Chipotle has lost customers, sales and profits after outbreaks of foodborne illnesses that sickened more than 500 people from Seattle to Boston. The burrito chain will shut its 1,900 U.S. restaurants on Monday for a meeting with employees to review a rapid overhaul of practices that it hopes will eliminate outbreaks of E. coli, Salmonella and norovirus. Food safety investigations in the United States begin - and often end - at the local level, and some states limit the disclosure of implicated restaurants, keeping diners in the dark.

6 Feb 2016 at 3:49am

Nigerians have an image problem abroad which makes it difficult to emigrate to the West, but they can stay at home where their services are needed, President Muhammadu Buhari was quoted as saying by a British newspaper on Saturday. A former army ruler from the 1980s who returned to power as a civilian after winning an election in March last year, Buhari has the image of an ascetic disciplinarian keen to tackle his country's persistent problems with crime and corruption. "Some Nigerians' claim is that life is too difficult back home," he was quoted as telling the Daily Telegraph newspaper.

Uganda rights groups set to monitor violence against women during elections
6 Feb 2016 at 2:27am

By Yasin Kakande KAMPALA (Thomson Reuters Foundation) - Ugandan women's rights groups are setting up a control centre to monitor any violence against women in the East African nation's elections this month and to act quickly on any reports. The move comes after the United States voiced concern that the electoral environment in Uganda was deteriorating in the run-up to the Feb. 18 elections. Violence during an election cycle is common in many African countries where it may be triggered by political or ethnic tensions, or flawed electoral processes, with women and children the most likely to be affected.

5 Feb 2016 at 9:45pm

Sao Paulo resident Juliana Matuoka always thought her stunning tropical flowers were something to appreciate from afar. "Here, I got one!" exclaimed Marcio Hoglhammer, a municipal health department worker who arrived along with colleagues and two young soldiers as part of Brazil's massive house-to-house effort to eradicate the Zika virus and dengue-carrying mosquitoes.

Convicted al Qaeda supporter, U.S. face off in medical malpractice trial
5 Feb 2016 at 7:21pm
A New York man serving a 15-year prison sentence for providing support to al Qaeda is urging a federal judge to award him $7 million because of a medical condition he says went untreated while in U.S. custody. Lawyers for Wesam El-Hanafi, 40, and the U.S. government made their closing arguments on Friday in a week-long medical malpractice trial over whether the prison system failed to timely diagnose and treat a blood clot in a deep vein in his calf. El-Hanafi, a Brooklyn-born man who U.S. prosecutors say facilitated surveillance of the New York Stock Exchange, contends his symptoms began shortly after his arrest in Dubai in 2010.

NFL-Aikman sees Panthers as possible powerhouse
5 Feb 2016 at 5:37pm
By Larry Fine SAN FRANCISCO, Feb 5 (Reuters) - Three-time Super Bowl winning quarterback Troy Aikman says the Carolina Panthers could be on the brink of a blockbuster run in the National Football League if they can avoid pitfalls that can come with success. Hall of Famer Aikman, who won three Super Bowl rings in a four-year stretch in the 1990s, said the emergence of quarterback Cam Newton and the Panthers' core of young players could make the Panthers a perennial powerhouse. Carolina, 17-1 this season, is nearly a touchdown favorite against the Denver Broncos for Sunday's Super Bowl 50 at Levi's Stadium in the suburb of Santa Clara.


League hit with rising concussions, brain trauma news
5 Feb 2016 at 5:36pm

By Larry Fine SAN FRANCISCO (Reuters) - Former quarterback Troy Aikman says he is fortunate to have gotten out of the NFL in good health as news of brain trauma in recently deceased former players is mounting, and he knows others are suffering. "I know there's people that I played with and against and those before me that are really battling some tough times as a result we assume from having played the game," the three-time Super Bowl champion with the Dallas Cowboys told Reuters on Thursday. Two days before, a specialist said a study of former Oakland Raiders quarterback Ken Stabler's brain following his death last year showed signs of CTE, which is closely associated with the repeated head blows common in boxing, hockey, football and other contact sports.
