Afrezza will be the first inhaled insulin to actually become accepted by patients, doctors and insurance companies.
It is easy to use and the inhaler fits in the palm of your hand.
It is smaller than the inhalers used by asthma patients.
The technosphere device is revolutionary and will change the way many medications are delivered.

The bear case just doesn't resonate, and a lot of people have written Afrezza off without knowing much about the product. It's been unfairly (but understandably) compared to Exubera, which differs not only in its bulkiness, but also in its efficacy. Exubera was less effective than injected insulin (and much more expensive) which meant the only value-added was being able to inhale instead of inject. Afrezza not only is inhaled (with an inhaler the size of a whistle instead of a bong) but it also has better efficacy and a faster acting profile than traditional injected meds, with competitive pricing. With 30% of the float short, this is a no-brainer with reward positively skewed to the upside

Although there is still substantial risk in MNKD, I believe the risk will dwindle considerably over the next 12 months and I also believe that the upside potential is enormous! If I'm right about these two predictions, as the risk goes down, the share price will explode. Afrezza sales should be very strong this year and many more opportunities will develop that makes use of their Technosphere technolgy! I just can't believe that the current share price is this low!

Not much cash on the books. The company has financial problems and the current market won't allow the company to go back to the market to get more equity.

There is a huge market for Afrezza (inhaled insulin) and the technosphere technology that allows medications that previously required injections to be taken via an inhaler. Revenues from Afrezza are likely to be north of $1b in 2015 and further growth after that especially since there continues to be a rise in diabetic patients. Stock is currently trading at market cap close to $2b. I think the stock is worth at least $10 making current price of $5.55 a big bargain.

One of the highest short interest ratio for a company that could be near profitability after agreement with Sanofi

It's a little sad that the five year price chart on YahooFinance doesn't take me back all the way to when I started covering Mannkind. I always thought I'd be a stock market billionaire before I got to this point. Perhaps I'm not because I never put my money where my mouth was on Mannkind, yet in the end I was right each of the dozen or so times that I pitched it. Mannkind is the epitome of a momentum stock. Both the upward and downward pressures on the stock are extreme, which can easily lead to a deceptively placid lull in movement. Nevertheless, when one side gains the upper hand the share price always overshoots dramatically. Almost no one ever buys Mannkind near the lows or shorts it near the top. The profits come to those with the courage of their convictions and the reserves to double down.

These days, the tide is running out and it isn't done. I know it's not done because I'm thinking about buying some and I haven't bought yet. It's a virtual certainty that as soon as I finally pull the trigger the stock will give up another 20%. The approval is done and the partnership is done, and now Mannkind must prove there's a market. As always, once the catalyst is past the opposing camp is in control. Last catalyst positive = momentum negative. The skeptics are confident that Afrezza won't capture any market share, and if it does it won't be profitable, and if it is it won't be profitable enough to justify the market cap. They may be right. but at some point in the near future something will happen to re-energize the Mannkinder and this stock will come roaring back. The only question is if the stock will dip back under 3 before that happens. That's why if you play this stock you always start small. If you happen to time the bottom and win small, at least you won on Mannkind. That's more than a lot of pros can say. If you have the reserves to double down when your small bet is down 20-30%, all the better.

Of course, who knows whether Mannkind will enter a Dendreon-like swirl of escalating losses and debt culminating in an agonizing bankruptcy? If that wasn't a possibility, the stock wouldn't be declining. In the end, though, trading stocks involves risk and trading biopharmas is especially risky. Ultimately, I have to trust the track record I've built on the stock over seven years rather than whichever talking head is talking out of whichever side of his mouth on CNBC or Seeking Alpha. Mannkind will be back.

Afrezza sales will be a disappointment. Labeling issues will restrict doctors from actually prescribing the drug. Predicting another Exubera bust.

Mannkind is sitting on an up and coming pop in the near-term future. Yes the analysts who say that the upside of increased earnings (slash the very existence of earnings) is already factored into the price of the stock are correct. But the old adage of "buy the rumor, sell the news" still works as well today as it used to. Once the rumors about which distributor(s) they're talking to come to the surface, this one is a great candidate for deep ITM leaps...takes the worrying out of waiting for those rumors to come to light.

Inhalable insulin might become a game changer. The technosphere technology might also be useful for a number of different drugs, and the CEO Al Mann has experience bringing medical devices to market (previously insulin pumps).

My largest holding.

This company has jumped through all the hoops thrown in front if it by the FDA. Inhaled insulin represents a new treatment which allows the administration of insulin without a needle, and works well according to several testimonials so far. Given the increasing number of diabetics it will likely soar.

Developed an inhalant insulin for both type 1 and type 2 diabetis. It is not yet approved, but this is major break in diabetis treatment.
