    What did you learn from your QCOR ride?

    by pensiveman2000 Aug 16, 2014 3:54 PM

    Being no doctor or biologist, generally I stay away from Biotech stocks. Over 1/2 of total Market Gains come from Dividends so I stick with Dividend Growers and High Yield Stocks & Funds in all sectors.

  • Amarantus Bioscience - AMBS - Launching first diagnostic blood test to detect Alzheimer's this year. Partnership currently being finalized. Up-listing to the NASDAQ in 4Q2014.

    Currently trading under a dozen pennies.

    Read the recent Yahoo news. Company's patented drug, MANF, already has three orphan indications.

  • Any updates on the Etrade distribution? I'm not showing any cost basis for the MNK shares and I don't seem to have gotten the $30 per share for my 5 options contracts. Also, as of right now the Cash distribution for my qcor shares are showing a loss. So my Taxable gains are all losses.

    they may not have finalized the cost basis information. i am going to wait until later today before calling.

    No, PJ, there are always consequences for our disobedience, in this life and the next. Even though, as Christians, we can be assured of our place in God's kingdom, we can backslide or not progress in our relationship and by doing so, not achieve our potential in this life or our full reward in the next.
    Only those whom have heard the gospel, and rejected it, will be separated from God for eternity. We were created in God's image but, with free will. We own the sin. More than a cursory online credo check is necessary to understand the teachings of Jesus and his disciples whom bore witness to the miracle of his life and his victory over death. Just as Paul whom Began as a cruel persecutor of Christians but in an instant, filled with the Holy Spirit, went on to become one of the most prolific Christian teachers, even as he sat in a jail cell, himself persecuted for his beliefs, there is hope for even the most acrid and cynical of humanity.

    Thanks for replying, danzo, but now it's time to get to work.

    Jesus is a get-out-of-jail-free card for my sins? And non-Christian humans who never heard of Jesus (not their fault, just where they happened to have been born in the world) remain uncertain of a place in God's Kingdom? Oh, wait, you're right I found the Christian credo online:

    "I created man and woman with Original Sin. Then, I destroyed most of them for sinning. Later, I impregnated a human woman with myself, as her son, so I could know the human lot. Later yet, I will kill myself, as a sacrifice to myself, that I may save humankind from the sin I gave them in the first place."

    I respectfully differ with you PJ. WE Humans are good and evil and perhaps other more subtle parts...and if you have come to know Jesus, like millions have and accept that his widely prophesied life, was an act of unfathomable love and sacrifice, without which no believer could be certain of a place in God's kingdom, you might see God is all GOOD. He sent his only son to us, as payment in FULL for our sin debt, without whom, we Christians would still be subject to the vagaries of inadequate deeds in atonement for our sin.
    Don't mistake man's propensity to commit evil against his fellow man as somehow part of, or sanctioned by God. We own that. If we ALL treated one another as we would like to be treated, then there would be no war, hunger or strife.
    If a ball player praises God for his victory or goal in an emotional moment of personal triumph, perhaps for that game or goal, God was working in his/her life at that moment.

    Every stock story is different. Fundamentals and technical only do matter if it's not heavily shorted. I traded around the core on QCOR and it paid off well. Here's a list of some of the most challenging stocks I invested and traded:
    AAPL,DNDN, HGSI, KERX, ARNA, REGN, PCYC, TSLA and my latest project MNKD. It was more than a wild ride with Q, but I really learned a lot from others to refine my trading skills. This was by far the best board I ever participated . Thanks to all. GLTAL!

    Sentiment: Strong Buy

    It's Sunday, so I'm up for some OT banter. If we're sloganizing about God, I think "God is EVERYTHING" is better.

    What is "everything"? Everything includes good, evil, everything we can imagine, and a great, great deal that we as humans just cannot. What goes on in Iraq and Syria and Gaza, the whole Muslim-Christian struggle...are all of God. If you rebel against such a notion, then you are a Dualist (as opposed to a Monotheist) and it falls upon you to explain how God lost control of the situation.

    I always have a little laugh at the football or baseball player who points at the sky as he emits triumph at his touchdown/homerun. The losers were forsaken by their God!

    Same with Shorts and QCOR longs. Don't confuse yourself or your temporary story with God. O, all right, if you must, then realize that God is of THEM as much as of you.

    And that concludes my Sunday sermon (for now). Contributions in the tray by the door, thank you...

    Bravery! You don't dare to use stops for fear of being locked into a loss. I figure that if I could stomach the volatility of QCOR I could handle just about anything. Net profit: Almost $300K.

    I have been doing well with IRE, check it out, it still has a lot of upside if you are patient.

    Good topic! I've been looking for a post to spill my gratitude/frustration/respect.
    I tell ya what. There were a couple of things
    1. The power of the short sellers. Wow. Just wow. I can only imagine where QCOR could have been the last couple of years if it wasn't picked on by the short sellers so much for so long.
    1a. Respect for the short sellers. I don't have to like them.....but I do have to pay a little gratitude, because they gave me a chance to buy cheaper shares in a stock I fundamentally (not emotionally) believed in.

    2. Always, ALWAYS keep some dry powder (see lesson #1). I wish I would have doubled down at $20.

    3. That after you cut through a lot of BS, there are actually a few decent people behind the message boards. This really wasn't a lesson learned, but it gives me a chance to show some gratitude to those who spilled a lot of good info/reinforcement for QCOR. Mikey, I'm talking about you. And there are definitely others. I was a little unsure of Nomadx for a long time but in the last two years I've learned to watch some of his posts carefully.

    I've been in QCOR since $4. Read about it when doing some research on MS as a few people close to me are suffering from it.
    I didn't get rich, but QCOR helped me finish a basement and gave me a nice down payment on my next home during that time span. And I'm pretty sure QCOR helped make a few lives of those suffering from MS a little easier too.

    I hope MNK can keep the ship sailing straight!!!!
    Good luck to all, and maybe see some of you on the board of the next QCOR!

    Interesting post and i am sure everyone has learned a lot, regardless of experience level.

    I honed my ability to trade around a core position which has already been paying off in many other stocks the last year. While I was a pretty decent trader 3 years ago, over the last year my trades are garnering almost 30% more than they used to.

    This has been very useful in fulfilling my goal of trading to build core positions for free or at least a much lower cost basis.

    Best of luck to everyone! I am 'lurking' (as the shorts accused me of) and reading all of everyone's posts for investment ideas.

    To never forget that I'm the bird on the Hippo and only get the insects. MM longs will use shorts to get the price they want... as a retailer I will focus on this much more in the future and try to devise strategies to play it both ways or minimize when they let shorts run to get the price they want.

    I'm more than worried they are going to do it again with MNK even though the one year RSI bottomed so we should see gradual up with all the funds that have to buy.
