MISM is looking good here. They show some huge assets in their financials so the book value is atleast .50 cents per share. I am loading up
in your insane, maniacal methods.
1) We all have had successful careers & invested wisely over decades, so feel no need crazily to gamble & scramble to make up late in life for a lifetime of losing.
2) We know that rational risk analysis shows it's nuts to risk 1000% losses when the market drops 50%, as it does typically once or twice a decade, just to earn 40% instead of 25% per year in stocks.
3) No sane person would take "advice" from such a big, fat, dumb, ignorant, lazy crackpot loser such as you.
Hey, loser! The S&P has gained about 25% per year since Mar 2009 low, fool. Talk about safety!
In order for a drug to have a chance of success, TWO separate and distinct approvals are needed. The first of course is approval by the FDA in this country or the appropriate regulatory body overseas.
But that isn't at all enough. What is ALSO needed is willingness of the insurance companies to reimburse the manufacturer.
In certain instances, insurers will indeed refuse to reimburse the manufacturer even when the drug has been duly approved. That actually happened to Pfizer in 2007 with its inhaled insulin product Exubera. Yes - Exubera was indded approved by the FDA but insurers wouldn't reimburse for it because they felt that there was no extra efficacy in inhaled insulin than injected insulin - the inhaled product simply cost more and no way were the insurers going to pay for that.
Refusal of the insurers to reimburse Pfizer for strictly a convenience product was the reason why PFE decided to take Exubera off the market in Q4-07. It's also the reason why diabetes-products leader NVO and other big pharma LLY discontinued tests on their own promising inhaled insulin products.
In the UK, the government there wouldn't reimburse for inhaled insulin unless a patient saw a psychiatrist and was classified as "extremely needle-phobic." How many folks would really want to go through THAT?
So be VERY careful with MNKD and Afreezza. Unless the insurers have a complete change of heart, the only folks that will buy the product will be those willing to pay the entire cost out of their pocket. And as you might imagine, the market for that is EXTREMELY small. So know the history of Exubera and why PFE removed the product in late 2007 even though it had been approved both here and abroad. PFE simply couldn't make any money on it once the insurers refused to reimburse and there was nothing in the world that Pfizer could do to force them to reimburse for a costlier product having no more efficacy than injected insulin. If insurers won't reimburse, the product fails.
Eat your heart out, detractors. I know that I'm the last person on earth that you would have wanted to make such a monumental discovery but indeed I'm the Chosen One. Chosen to actually find the methods to beat the market in virtually all cases but all-out crashes such as 2008/2009.
In the event of such a crash, I'm going to lose more money than anyone else doing what I'm doing. However, I still do much better than virtually anyone in flat markets, market corrections, garden-variety bear markets and even bear markets in the 30% range. It's only CRASHES where I come a-cropper.
I still wonder why so few people here seem interested in earning consistent returns of 25% or more in all but market crashes. Just for the record, my portfolio earned 58% in the flat market year of 2011, itearned 42% last year and I'm well on my way to earning an overall return at least in the 40's again this year. What other person but me can earn 40% or more on his entire portfolio three consecutive years? The first time perhaps it's luck. Two straight years is quite a surprise but THRR years in a row can't be due to anything but SUPERIOR METHODS.
Even among the few people who have naked put authority, they just don't see the returns that I do if they trade with other firms. That's because Ameritrade is the ONLY brokerage in the land to offer naked put margin requirements that are at the floor levels set by the SEC and the options exchanges. Every other frim sets arbitrary minimum margin requirements that are two, three and even five times as high as Ameritrade. So obviously the returns at these other firms will only be a half, a third or a fifth of what they are at Ameritrade.
And eve at Ameritrade where the returns are so much higher, I am told that hardly any other clients there are interested in selling deep out-of-the-moneys.
I consider my Eureka moment of two years ago to be one of the greatest financial market discoveries IN HISTORY!. Almost nobody else in THE NATION can earn the kind of returns in non-crashing markets that I do or can do it as safely as I can.
I am truly aghast that so few people of this board seem to even be interested in this. Anyone who thinks that this is too good to be true or can't be true is out of his or her mind. Because the truth of the matter is that it's absolutely true and I continue to shiow investment after investment where I'm able to garner other-worldy returns in a strategy that is infinitely SAFER than buying and holding a stock. By selling very deep out-of-the-money naked puts I have far far greater safety than buyers of the stocks. And while you might think that such deep out-of-the-moneys can't be selling for much, that's where the fully cash-covered put sellers come in. They HAVE to buy these options unless they want to put up such huge margins that it renders their put-selling unattractive.
I myself am just amazed that I seem to be about the only one to have figured this stuff out but what can I say. I HAVE figured it out, it gives me the Keys to the Kingdom and it has been a complete life-changer for those who can now have 25% and 30% returns.
It starts with the fact that options in general have a very bad name. Most people don't understand them, don 't know what the margin requirements are and what the risks are. And there are very substantial risks to the BROKERAGES as well that don't exist with stocks. If an investor loses money in even the most speculative stock, that's just tough - the investor is out the money. But if there are big losses in options, investors have found that if they sue to try and recover losses on grounds of unsuitability, surprisingly many arbitrators will rule in their favor and will force the brokerages to cough up part or all of the losses.
For that reason, brokerages these days are VERY reluctant to grant authorization for advanced options trading such as selling NAKED puts. While almost anyone can get authorization to sell FULLY CASH-COVERED puts the margin requirements are very onerous. The ONLY way that sellers of the cash-covered puts can reduce their margin requirements is to BUY lower-strike puts at the same time they are selling the higher strikes.
Those buying the lower strikes are essentially giving money away since these options are really worthless or semi-worthless. But the cash-covered put-sellers buy them anyway because they just have to lower the margin requirements. So what happens is that there are all of these cash-covered put sellers who are acting strictly in their best interests. However, this ends up having a crazy result because all of the buying of the lower-strike options dramatically jacks up the prices of those ostensibly worthless and semi-worthles options.
So then along comes someone like me or my group of investors and we SELL these jacked-up options using the one brokerage in the country that has far-and-away the lowest margin requirements on naked puts. We have the field practically all to ourselves as only 1% of put sellers have the authorization to sell NAKED puts which entail much much lower margins and therefore much higher pr,
Health care workers sickened by new virus
Two health care workers in Saudi Arabia were sickened while treating patients with a dangerous new virus, the World Health Organization said Wednesday.
The health care workers were exposed to patients with the novel coronavirus, or nCoV, the WHO said in a statement Wednesday. One is a 45-year-old man who is currently in critical condition after becoming ill May 2, and the second is a 43-year-old woman who became ill on May 8 and is in stable condition. The woman has a co-existing health condition, the organization said.
"Although health care associated transmission has been observed before with nCoV (in Jordan in April 2012), this is the first time health care workers have been diagnosed with nCoV infection after exposure to patients," according to the WHO.
Experts: New SARS-like virus could show up in US
Has the taste of Alan's chocolatey orangey poo improved any since Fatso's tax=payer funded surgery, Ruffnuts?
I have an open mind. Are you talking about the neighborhood girls, toenail clipping, illegal prostitution, GE's non-involvement in financials, calculating a 2.9% gain every eight trading days or his POS "automobile"? Go ahead, Mr. Fraud, play his game and see what it is like to lose 2.5 times your original investment. Better yet, go look in the mirror. LMAO!
Listen Carol or Harold or whatever your name is. Allan's postings are, in fact, important to PFE investors such as me. I, too, thank him for posting his successes. In addition to much needed knowledge for those of us interested in equity investments (as you put it), some of us are actually very interested in "put" strategy investments as well. And we learn from his postings. I can apply his strategies and knowledge to PFE and scores of other equities. So the information is relevant. What have I ever learned from you? Nothing. And we, who are interested in AJD's updates, thank you to mind your own business, and stop cluttering up this board with your predictable effluent. If you don't have an interest in his postings, just pass. In fact, just pass on replying to me. I'm not interested in what you have to say. And neither are the folks who appreciate AJD's posts.
Sold 200 contracts of the JCP Jan. 10-strike naked puts for $39 apiece with the stock selling near $19 a share. Net proceeds after commissions of $7,670 with cash margin requirements at Ameritrade being $28,200. Nominal return of 27.2% for just over eight months or 39.7%. With an expected early-out, the annualized return could be mid-to-high 40's. The margin-safe price is at $11.25 and the low for the decade on this stock is at $13.55..

Would be a good time to borrow $80 billion, if they want to do that.
Maybe partly in PFE shares.
Thank you for posting a message that is of extreme importance to PFE investors and those that are considering such an investment. People like you contribute much needed knowledge to those interested in equity investment. Return to your corner and resume playing with yourself.
She wired in $8,400 on that date and here are all of the investments that have been made in her account:
1) On 7/18/12, sold 130 contracts of the BAC Feb. 4-strike naked puts for $11 apiece. Net proceeds after commissions amounted to $1,320 and margin requirements were $8,060. 11 weeks later on Oct. 3, 2012, the 130 contracts were bought back for $3 each or $395 after commissions for a profit of $925.
2) On 10/3/02, the margin availability freed up by getting out of BAC was used for two mini-investments. irst of all, 16 contracts of the AIG May 23-strike naked puts were wold for $53 apiece. 16 weeks later on 1/24/13, they were bought back for $8 each. Net profits after commissions came to $680.
The other investment on 10/3/12 was to sell 10 TEVA 32.50-strikes expiring in Jan. 2014. The puts were sold for $149 apiece but can now be bought back for just $50 apiece. Paper profits are currently $975.
On Jan. 25, 2013, we sold 40 contracts of the F 10-strike naked puts expiring in Jan. 2014. The options were sold for $32 apiece but can now be bought back for $14 each. Paper profits currently stands at $680.
With profits continuing to mount, there was enough margin availability on May 3 to sell 25 contracts of the JCP Jan 8-strike naked puts for $34 apiece. Just a week-and-a-half later, they can now be bought back for $26 apiece for a paper profit of $180.
So in the ten months since inception, net profits of $3,440 have been amassed on an original cash deposit of $8,400. The nominal return for the ten-month period is 41.0% which is virtually FIFTY percent annualized.
This is what I have earned for a NINETY year-old where safety has been emphasized.
Those on this board are just crazy if they aren't taking advantage of my stupendous Eureka Moment. You won't be seeing this sort of thing anywhere else in print. But that doesn't meant that the returns aren't there or are "too good to be true." They ARE true.
