GOOG always pulls back the day before or the day of earnings Thursday July 17 at the close.
IF you area a shareholder, I had posted for the past year or so to sell a Jan 2015/2016 covered call. Now, if the values have dropped significantly that day close them out and sell another 10 to 15% covered call.
With me, it all about pocketing 10% and using market money to play any option
Use some of your profits to buy AUG monthly calls for that same strike price
Another for the 'conspiracy theories' thread :-)
The Company presentation notes that NTM lung infection is common in Asthma, COPD, Cystic Fibrosis and Bronchiectasis.
In other words the target population are individuals with conditions which have weakened their pulmonary defence mechanisms - allowing bacterial infection.
In most cases the bacteria are Gram-positive - routinely treated with beta-lactam antibiotics.
Some bacteria are resistant to beta-lactam antibiotics -
1. Gram-positive bacteria with evolved resistance (MRSA).
2. Gram-negative bacteria (Pseudomonas, Klebsiella, Acinetobacter).
In countries with TB epidemics the Mycobacterium is likely to be Mycobacterium Tuberculosis. In countries where TB is under control the Mycobacterium is likely to be one of 125-plus other species - two of which cause Leprosy, the others simply referred to as Nontuberculous Mycobacteria.
Transave (the pre-merger company) chose Pseudomonas infection in CF as the initial test of its inhaled-liposome amikacin.
Then the NIAID intervened, and suggested a parallel study in recalcitrant NTM pulmonary infection. To put this in perspective, that NTM sub-population is so small they had difficulty in finding 100 patients from the 50,000 in the US diagnosed with NTM lung infection each year.
The ensuing study compared the standard triple-antibiotic regimen plus study drug against the standard regimen plus placebo.
However proof of a superior risk/benefit profile in a small patient population with chronic illness which has left them immuno-compromised for so long that NTM in their lungs have had time to evolve resistance to the standard antibiotic regimen seems a small reward for a five-year collaboration.
I don't believe the NIAID was particularly interested in developing a better NTM therapy.
But developing a better amikacin therapy would be very much in the interests of both the NIAID and the FDA - given that ITFAR is co-chaired by the CDC, NIAID and FDA.
@jctuttle14 and Kalifornia - neither one of you "tough guys" can break a grape in a fruit fight. Hilarious
I think you need to find a more discrete yacht captain. ROFLMFO.
You guys are lucky that no one has made this a racial issue yet, presuming sex and drugs are more
common here than in DC ( marion barry for example) or detroit leadership. The real problem for social change is now the issue of women's rights to be prositutes and the Mrs "don't be evil" crowd. All these angry zealots have now grown up, no less zealous to save the world but with a different set of self interests to determine what makes the world a better place- often with children to use as props this time. They can not even state a problem accurately in public, how can rational thought hope to produce lasting solutions?
You expect them to blame their husbands? ROFLMFO.
Does this company have an angie's list for sex services? ROFLMFO.
I will record you all I want when you're in public, and if you even try to lay one finger on me, I will break all ten of them, hows that sound retardo?
I heard Ebay and Yahoo would not be reporting great earnings.
Dontknow about Intel,I think they will do well
We'll see the 620s... Even Bernstein said today that Q2 will come in better than the Street is now expecting.
In fact, I wouldn't be surprised if it jumps some 10% from here.
Are we going to surpass $600 or are we going back down to $550?
Earnings comes out Thursday
I hope we see $625
By the way I am long
Oh look all your spamming and noone cares. In fact your stock has plummeted down from .25 to .19. Do you feel sad? Do you want to cry? Your stock is going to go down to .0001. When it does, can I take a selfie with you, in your little box on the side of the road while you're curled up in a ball drinking that last bit of whiskey you call life?
