Apologies to the rest of the board if this came off as rude, but I have a particular distaste for people who see themselves as the authority coming on these boards for no apparent reason other than to scare people into selling. As a point of fact, for you long term REGN holders, this knucklehead came on when we were trading in the low $360s saying that it was going to pull back significantly. Within a few weeks we were in the $430s. Now he comes back saying he was some sort of prophet. LOL. This guy is a tool and and if you are long and believe in this company, consider just blocking him out.
Here we have a retail investor in an expensive stock. He holds through earnings hoping for a pop. When it does not happen, he blames a CNBC talking head for not humping the stock. Then with margin calls beckoning, he sells at the daily low.
This is a prime example of why retail investors cannot make money.
I believe what the company has said is that where a cheaper solution exists then doctors should use that. However, there seems to be two additional classes of people who have problems with bad cholesterol. First there are the statin intolerant. In some cases there are people who think they are statin intolerant but actually are not. Their physician can determine that and then prescribe this new product to those who will actually benefit. A second group of individuals cannot get their cholesterol down with existing products no matter what they have tried. In addition, this group may be genetically prone to high cholesterol and are at high risk of heart attacks. In fact they may have had one already and diet will not bring down their cholesterol to non threatening levels. This new drug will get their cholesterol down.
The REGN CEO talked about this in great detail in last weeks conference call. So if anyone wants the facts and not BS from short sellers shooting their mouths off listen to the webcast while it is still on the REGN website.
March/April tends to be the time when bubbles get popped. Dot coms in March 2000, Silver in April 2011. Biotechs got between 1-30 days left before they get destroyed. I see them dropping 25-50% across the board.
You should be able to find the press release on the REGN website. I signed up for automatic press/event emails and found it in my inbox this morning. I expect at $8 - $10. pop on Monday and who knows what in the days that follow. Shorts, head for the hills. You've lost.
Eylea significantly outperformed Avastin and Lucentis for diabetic retinopathy. I usually use Avastin, but will switch to Eylea for the bad diabetics. Should make a difference on the bottom line.
Yes, thats right, $11 BILLION DOLLAR (annual) potential market/annuity. Pain, and the current epidemic of over doses on pain meds, is HUGE. This is an issue the FDA, and medical community is beside themselves on, trying to figure out what to do.
REGN is very much in this race TOO!
Google article title if interested, "FDA removes the brakes on Pfizer and Lilly's pain drug"
be prepared for a 25-50% selloff across the board. nobody will escape the selling pressure.
Are you a professional on the medical field? Same question for storied eagle. Guess these 2 are short, and suffering the loses...I am allergic to statins, and will try this new one... Hate to see people eating whatever they want and all of them are in regular colesterol medications, but me? I must keep an eye in what I eat.... gushhhhhh

Never had sour meatballs before...Sorry you missed the move.
on top of high cholesterol being a conscious result of one's lifestyle, recent studies have indicated that intake of cholesterol in the diet had no correlation to heart disease. Statins have been proven to not reduce the incidence of heart attacks at all. REGN and Sanofi have just introduced another sure to be prescribed needlessly drug to the market which should shine brightly against the other dozen or so products in this category. Not knocking REGN's capitalistic endeavors, but I am knocking the senselessness and greed behind these capitalistic endeavors. This is just another drug to assuage lazy and unhealthy people's lifestyle choices and let them continue to make poor decisions. Good job REGN for cultivating a society of ignorance and passiveness. We thank you whole (and clogged) heartedly!
You are on record!!!.
According to my calculations, there is a 4.8 to 1 chance that there will be a 50+ point up day in Regn as opposed to a 50 + point down day in REGN,
