Q: What are considered the advantages of Tev-Tropin?
A: Needle-free option, 3 formulations (vials, Inject Ease, Tjet needle-free) to meet patient needs, a 10mg formulation should be available later this year, 30% less expensive than others, Growth Solutions program and providers are requesting coverage under Fee-for-Service (FFS) for continuity of care since the care management organizations (CMOs) cover Tev-Tropin as the exclusive growth hormone.
Tappy, my investment in stocks is based on what I believe are the fundamentals. Many people use other basis for buying and selling stocks. This post is not intended to be critical of anyone's method of investing their money. When I take a position in a stock it is because of fundamentals. We all know stocks will swing up and down. I do not attempt to out guess those swings. I have a 15/20 rule. If a stock pulls back 15-20% and the fundamentals are the same, I usually add to the position. And, I have taken my lumps over the years many times.
Your point on preservation of capital being number one is well taken. On this point, I never use margin, never borrow money to buy a stock, and don't trade options. I'm sure there are people successful in using the above methods. It's just not my cup of tea. I'm a long term buy, and hold, dictated by fundamentals, unless,or until, I see a reason to make a change.
Atrs is one of the best fundamental, low risk, growth stocks, that I have come across in a long time. I believe we are headed much higher in the next few months. No need for me to go into all the positive reasons for this increase. You, and many others have listed those reasons much better than I could ever attempt. My best to all longs.
I have been thru the mill - investing for many years.
I have taken my lumps - but always looked back on
mistakes as paying my tuition - and trying to learn
from them and not make the same ones twice.
My most costly mistake was hearing what I wanted to
hear (not what was sometimes staring me in the face) and
ignoring "red flags" and excusing them rather than having
them prompt action.
My first objective in investing these days is preservation of
capital - close second is profit. One thing I do have is a long
time horizon - which is probably due a lot to my experience
in real estate - dealing with long leases and increased value
over sometimes many years (but I need to see light at the
end of the tunnel)..
I find everything I want in an investment in ATRS - I find it
safe and almost risk less - and I mean that from both a regulatory
and a business standpoint. My major fear a few years ago was
that we were very dependent on TEVA - but seeing the added
value of Tev-Tropin- the successful Epi Pen litigation outcome-
and most of all hearing Dr. Wotton describe the TEVA relationship
as "Phenomenal" in a recent conference call - and knowing how he
operates - I am totally confident that statement is 100% accurate.
Now it is a matter of how high can it go - certainly high enough to
make the time, small risk and hard work of due diligence worth while.
As many here know - I am confident we will sign major deals - and
I am somewhere between hopeful and confident for Copaxone - but
I don't own a share of stock for those reasons - that is merely
"icing on the cake".
I owned the stock for a long time - thinking it could rather easily,
in time trade at $10 based on the royalty income from our licensing
deals (back then it was all we had) - I still think that is accurate.
I am now even more excited by MTX and other "in house" initiatives;
because that removed the lid from what ATRS can earn and puts us
far more in control of our own destiny - this can super charge the stock -
it now can go much higher than my original target and with the low cost
and low risk of MTX - I think we are as safe an investment as ever.
I look forward to the conference call on Wednesday and am confident
it will reassure the bulls - give a reason to buy to those on the fence -
convert the skeptics - and scare the pants (shorts) off the shorts.
