Summary:
GW Pharmaceuticals saw its short interest increase by 228% in just two weeks at the end of April. The stock then proceeded to drop 4% at the beginning of May even though the company reported its earnings on May 7. GW Pharmaceuticals will also be presenting at the Bank of America/Merrill Lynch Health Care Conference in Las Vegas on May 13th. If the presentation goes well, these shorts could be forced to cover their positions. GW Pharmaceuticals was asked several questions about the FDA and its approval during its earnings conference call. Investors are anxious for U.S. approval. Video provided by TheStreet

Now there's help from a relatively young scientific discipline that marries entomology and biotechnology.Many bugs are masters at adaptation and survival and they boast an incredibly robust immune system. Scientists from Giessen are searching for molecules and proteins with which insects successfully fight off bacteria and fungi. They've isolated a molecule from the multicolored Asian lady beetle which could work against tuberculosis and malaria. And even the honeycomb moth produces molecules that can combat disease-causing pathogens.
