My #1 stock recommendation for 2011 is DSCOD (DSCO). I currently have 8600 DSCOD shares in my portfolio (a 9.2% position, see this post). My "fund" currently "holds" a little over 2% of the outstanding shares (see this post). A recent post on DSCO(D) is here.

I also wish I did the chart before - I agree with Zz's - ie my technicals agree - it became a buy .25 cents!

#3 I bought (and sold a few) DSCO shares before the 1 for 15 "reverse" split and bought DSCOD shares after the split. I am not aware of special share classes.

#8 okay, but please change the limit if you don't get any in the next few hours. I don't want to hear you lament as in the case of VMW, hehe ...

#11 Okay, I will try to come up with 2 paragraphs. I think I will contact my one "real life" biotech friend (PhD in biochemistry like zzlangerhans, who dated one of the girls living next door to me about 2.5 decades ago and went to class with my sister ...) and I might even knock at a few doors at my university for some "on the ground research". But if you own close to 1% of the company you can stop buying, that is all the pressure I can take, I think, hehe ...

Porte, I have to say you and Dr. ZZ are very convincing with this DiSCO story.

Whether I do get me some DSCO or not (and I will if some of my funding gets liquid again ), I wish you best of luck.

Happy New Year.

This quickly is becoming the "most popular" play around the Fool, ha!

My limit order of 3.15 hit today and I picked up some shares. I can't say I am quite as confident as ZZ and Port in this pick, but the risk/reward definitely seems worthy.

Well I wish you all a lot of luck and hope you make money, but as with most bio tech stocks it becomes a roll of the dice.  This stock tanked hard since Aprill of 2010 and the Fool porjects it to lose $2.40 next year.  Personally I think if you are going to roll the dice consider CVM.

Did DSCOD just release on Jan 10th that they would have a lot more work to do before they are approved by FDA?

Sounds like they were on track for Q1, and now we are talking Q3.
