The news today annocuning the peer-reviewed publication of results from two phase I trials (HVTN 070 and HVTN 080) of Inovio Pharmaceuticals’ PENNVAX®-B preventive HIV DNA vaccine delivered with a DNA adjuvant and with or without Inovio’s proprietary CELLECTRA® electroporation delivery device follows up prior excellent news. On Monday, the Company announced that, in a preclinical study of its influenza DNA vaccine against the virulent, newly emergent H7N9 flu virus, 100% of the vaccinated animals were protected against sickness and death when they were challenged with a lethal dose of H7N9 virus.
As for INO stock itself, today’s high of 1.57 is the highest level the shares have traded since January, 2011 when INO stock hit 1.56. However, by leaps and bounds, today’s volume is the highest ever in over 3 years and for good reason.
INO stock, at today’s HOD has gained 220% since bottoming out from its previous bull run of 100% to start the year. With Dhillon’s success rate in putting up the numbers for investors in penny stocks which he is directly involved with, could ARTH stock be on the same path as INO in respect of gains since the 0.79 alerts we issued?

Last 5 Trading Sessions:
INO shattered all of its previous records today and is a swing traders dream at present. With resistance levels tough to surpass from this point and support hanging tough at the 1.30 level, a pull back is imminent and very much worthy of an addition to the list of penny stocks to watch. On a side note, ARTH has performed very well this week since being picked up by Paragon and should continue to see its PPS stay above the 1.20 level before it also breaks out.
