Is JCP trading at $12 yet, no? How about $11, no again? $10...$9 perhaps, no? Your track record for calling the next move doesn't seem to be very good.
According to the latest Corporate Presentation, Trovagene has 4 HPV trials on-going and 3 in evaluation. They just presented result of a 501 patient trial in April at a Chinese healthcare conference. The US market method of care is already good for HPV - although it may be more expensive. The HPV diagnostic test sales growth will be to women in countries with lower levels of healthcare programs: like Brazil, China, India, Mexico, etc.
Since W and his congress voted to destroy it in 2007 at the tune of 5.5 billion a year for health insurance for75 years, before usps workers are born, how could any company overcome that? Answer none. The usps is separate from the gov. and gets no funding. They make money but are strapped with a ridiculous millstone around their neck thanks to W.
Sentiment: Strong Sell
I've been waiting almost 11 years for the end and now it's almost here. The bad part is D.J. will rape the company before the lawyers & judge take theirs.
Sentiment: Strong Sell
“We are all in the process of working towards a solution for Greece and I would not say that we already have reached substantial results. “Things have moved, but there is still a lot of work to do.”
That doesn’t really match the optimism we keep hearing from Athens. But Lagarde did say she has a “good feeling” that Greece will meets its commitments (including the 1.6bn euros it owes the Fund in June).
The further restructuring of public debt constitutes a fixed IMF request, debt which it considers is at unsustainable levels. Oftentimes, Christine Lagarde has made clear that the IMF will not participate in an unsustainable program and implied the need for a settlement of the burning issues.
RXI is a risky, speculative stock and today was a reminder of one of the primary risks inherent to pre-commercialized microcap bios, which is that it may be necessary to raise cash under less than favourable terms. In this case it was under brutal terms and a drastic undervaluation due to it occurring at the end of Tangs conversions. It is not pleasant or ideal but it is necessary for the company's survival.
It is speculation on my part but I believe interested institutional investors made it clear they would not invest until the preferred shares were converted. The timing of the offering occurring the same day as the company issuing a PR that all preferred shares have been converted seems too coincidental. Unfortunately, Tang's conversions finished at a time when the company had only 2-3 months of cash left and the rate at which they were converted and sold led to a massive decline in share price. The LPC deal would have only allowed them to raise around $2 mill at this price, which would only last 2 months and would provide another potential source of selling pressure as LPC are not long-term investors. Non-dilutive licensing deals may or may not have been available but clearly there were none that offered substantial up-front payments. Debt is not an option, which left the company little choice but to do an offering at current price levels.
Is the company worth 10x less than it was when they raised cash previously? Did Broadfin and Frost have no idea what they were doing and severely overvalue the company? Did the pipeline get worse? I don't think so and, in my opinion, the pipeline has progressed and expanded a great deal since then. I continue to believe in the pipeline and Geert and think that with the new cash and no remaining preferred shares, the pipeline's progress will start to be reflected in the share price. I am invested for the long term and simply do not believe the company is worth $15 mill or that management is somehow scamming investors.
I put in a buy order last week for 3000 shares, I saw 4 blocks of 100 shares in the 6 blocks it took to fill my order. i have never seen that with other stocks I've invested in, but those have been much more conservative larger companies.
Disney has had a phenomenal run, however I expect the stock to hover around 105-109 for the coming months. We will have strong Q3 Earnings, but don't expect the next bump to come until Star Wars heats up. They have made acquisitions in the past in Marvel & LucasFilm that will pay dividends in merchandising, theme parks, movies, television, etc., however their largest revenue share comes from television networks. I expect Mr. Iger to make another splash and it will be interesting what they will do to protect their most valuable asset. Iger passed on the opportunity years back to acquire Netflix when previous CEO - Michael Eisner recommended the idea. The over-arching question remains ... What will Disney do to combat cable-cutting? We're not quite there yet, but it's on the horizon that things are changing quick and reflective in how advertising dollars are spent. It's a shame (For Disney) - Netflix now has content and has bridged the gap internationally. If they formed a team with Disney, they would not only add News, but also Sports/ESPN. It would literally be the end of Time Warner and all other competitors, as Netflix would be the one-stop show for TV Watchers. Prior to Netflix's major run, I would have thought this was the next move, but Netflix comes with a high price tag at the moment.
Sentiment: Strong Buy
