My second largest holding--held up very well during the correction.
Seems like shorts should be getting nervous here--what if market rebounds in same time frame as 20f is published?
Bulldog: I'm happy for you that you believe in God. That is a fine testimony of the existence of a God, but doesn't come close to answering Fscott's issue of the protestants claiming the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit are all one being. Who was Jesus praying to before he died? Why did Stephan in Acts 7 see God the Father and Jesus on his right hand? Why Jesus in the water during baptism, Holy Ghost in form of Dove and voice of God? Seems to me Jesus is the son of his Father God. Much more straight forward than the notion of all three being one person and one personality giving birth to another personality etc....
Things are not always what they seem. Just because it is printed in an article on the internet, does not necessarily mean that it is true. Don't set stops. Some people are malicious - especially when it comes to money. Others are malicious just for the fun of it. Trust your instincts and get your information from multiple sources.
PJ - I hope you get a chance to read something I ran across and thought might be of interest to you:
Scripture: John 16:5-11
5 But now I am going to him who sent me; yet none of you asks me, `Where are you going?' 6 But because I have said these things to you, sorrow has filled your hearts. 7 Nevertheless I tell you the truth: it is to your advantage that I go away, for if I do not go away, the Counselor will not come to you; but if I go, I will send him to you. 8 And when he comes, he will convince the world concerning sin and righteousness and judgment: 9 concerning sin, because they do not believe in me; 10 concerning righteousness, because I go to the Father, and you will see me no more; 11 concerning judgment, because the ruler of this world is judged.
Meditation: Who hasn't experience sorrow and grief over the loss of a loved one? Sorrow filled the hearts of Jesus' disciples when they heard him speak about his imminent departure. Jesus explained that it was for their sake that he must leave them and return to his Father. He promised, however, that they would never be left alone. He will send in his place the best of friends, the Holy Spirit. Jesus tells his disciples three very important things about the work of the Holy Spirit -- to convince the world of sin and of righteousness and of judgment. The original word for convince also means convict. The Holy Spirit is our Sanctifier. He makes us holy as God is holy. He does this first by convicting us of our sin and by bringing us humbly to the foot of the Cross. The Spirit convinces us of God's love and forgiveness and of our utter dependence on God for his mercy and grace. We need the power of the Holy Spirit to lead us from the error of our sinful ways and to show us the way of love and truth. The Jews who condemned Jesus as a heretic and blasphemer thought they were serving God rather than sinning when they crucified Jesus. When the gospel was later preached on the day of Pentecost (Acts 2:37),
fscottkey - I can tell you in my personal relationship with our Creator, I discovered as a junior in HS, without any doubt He was as real as looking in the mirror and seeing that you and I are real, after growing up in a "Christian home" and attending church my whole life, I met Him in the spiritual realm and NOT from anything my parents or church did to get me there but it was an alone time searching and seeking what is this life on Earth all about. The Holy Bible is His Word and truth for us to understand who He is and who we are thru Him. God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit seems so simple for me to understand once I knew Him. Jesus is God that took on Human form and while at the same time being divine as well as human was subject to all we are subject to on this earth, which is where he showed us how we should live and how He took upon Himself all of the sins of mankind so that we may leave this earth and have a place with Him in eternity, but it is a gift that we must willing accept. Jesus in His human body while sacrificing His human life through His divine Holiness for every person willing to accept By Grace (an acrostic - God's Riches At Christ's Expense) through Faith, was calling out to His Father, just as you or I would have in a time of need for love......understand He was taking on the Sin of the World....he was in His human body, He had to descend to the depths of Hell to carry those sins away for us, and history tells us He arose on the 3rd day and appeared to many. He told of the Holy Spirit that is the spiritual realm of God that can live inside of us, IF we accept Him. God the father that created the World, also created His human son Jesus in the immaculate birth, and also left His Holy Spirit to live inside of us. No doubt our human minds have a very difficult time understanding spiritual matters, Thus is why the scripture tells us it is by Grace we are saved Through FAITH, and it is not from ourselves, so no one can boast.
danzo, I've never understood the traditional protestant doctrine of Jesus being the Father and therefore being his own son. Makes no sense to me whatsoever. Me thinks the protestants have screwed up the doctrine of the Godhead (God/Holy Spirit/Jesus) with this notion that they are all the same. If they are all the same who was Jesus praying too before he died and why was he always refering to his father in the third person? Just because a bunch of mega church preachers and televangelists with a huge profit motive tell me it is so, doesn't make it so.
why would this option be on the cheap side... what might be going on with a bigger player or MM to sell this to me at this price.???

Little as good as QCOR, but try these undervalued stocks:
EXTR, GILD, PGN, and WFT. All are safe and potentially doublers in a couple years.
Others that are good but maybe not quite the deal are DAKT, SNCR, and VSI.
The biggest challenge is to hold when the stock is seriously down. You want the pressure to go away. Also, if you feel in your heart that you should go in stronger than you should go, that is hard to decide. I did somehow overcome these feelings to sell when it was down and was patient to hold until the next earnings report. I have been trying to find another qcor. I made approx. $425k off qcor in 2013 and first qtr 2014, and am now long hlf, another highly shorted stock and am presently under water and holding.
So many many people have said things I could echo - but yours is the one that captures the most important part to me - I still can't believe I found a board filled with honest smart people who work as a team and who I know I can learn from the rest of my life. On an Internet that can be dominated by trolls, what magic to stumble on the QCOR board.h
Wow - still pumping.
I am long on AMBS, but I know it is a highly speculative stock. There are NO bargains on this stock - unless you believe 11 cents is a bargain when a stock could go near zero as likely or more likely that is will go to .25
Be orepared to lose all with this stock - or to win big - and beware the folks who trade. They often pump the stock on message boards other than AMBS......
though everybody knows that never invests your money just based on opinions on the YMB, and I did my own DD on QCOR, I still appreciate many honest people on this message board to share their research result and their point of view. Without them, as a new investor, I could not wait to the end. I probably am going to following those great people through out rest of my investing life.
It's important to be ever-vigilant with BS and word play. Not to single out Raven, but as a perfect example - his VERY skillful way of crafting sentences and word arrangement took known, positive or neutral facts and twisted them in ways that made it look like QCOR was surely just hours away from the FDA announcing they were shutting down their operations on various counts, at various times! Not only do you have to read very carefully between the lines with fantastic claims to see how they may or may not be twisting the truth, but also use some common sense - if Athcar was truly bad, the FDA would not take months to respond to a claim that a (world famous-yet unnamed) lab showed the composition of Athcar differed materially from the label and didn't contain the active ingredients, etc. And if someone claims to be looking out for 'the little guy", they wouldn't send a report to the FDA claiming a test sample was 'fraudulent', then sit on the letter, and magically release the FDA letter to the public 3 months later...coincidentally, just 2 days after a stellar earnings report that shot the stock price up.
1. While I echo many of the lessons already mentioned, I have to say, on a positive note, it has proven to me, that cyberfriendships (QCOR mb) can be real and edifying.
