Notice Scott states: "thats (sic) the rumor i hear"
Notice Scott's claim: "i have pretty good sources on that type of thing"
Conclusion? Scott Matusow, prolific Seeking Alpha writer is claiming that he has sources that are telling him about a buy out. Was Scott's claim for "1.5 billion" genuine or was he just floating a number? Who knows?
What if he right? or wrong? Curious, this is.... very curious...
good answer Snow, of course betting me would be betting against yourself. This company has the potential, if not bought out before 2018 to be trading near 70 a share. im not the only one who thinks that. i know several people with well over 1 million dollars vested here making that same bet. long term investors. AIS is really not a bio tech in the classic sense, but that is what is changing in this world. AIS certainly is not worth 1.3 billion dollars right now. its not even worth 2.70 a share if we were to look at its current fundamentals only, the pps would be near 1 dollar a share. the rumor i heard came from trading desks. however, rumors and rumors, hard to say where they originate exactly from, but when they come from trading desks, those are the very people involved with the stock underwriters who make the deals. what i heard was that Pfizer was the bidder, but TEVA has some clause with AIS that gives them right of first refusal, and they used it. but again, please remember, this could be total bs. I am not the one making the rumor up, I just stated exactly what i heard. gl!
Your are definetly from Vegas haha ever the gambler? This is the second time in this post alone you have tried to bet someone cold hard cash. I have already placed my bet... and that is in AIS stock. I will not begin to suggest i have anywhere near as much knowledge as you do about biotechs or the market in general.
I missed the boat back in the 90's on BIIB and AMGN because i was too afraid to pull the trigger despite all the good DD that was screaming BUY ME. While i dont presume to put AIS in those two companies same bracket i do believe highly in AIS.
I guess it is just difficult for me to wrap my head around paying that sum of money with so many unknowns dangling out there. But being proven wrong on this only benfits me and the rest of AIS investors so heres praying i am DEAD wrong :)
JEEZ, not stand to love, STAND TO LOSE. anyways, good luck to you, u will see u are wrong. ive seen plenty of guys sell right before buy outs and kick themselves. if u are happy with your pps target and get it, great, but dont whine if I end up being right.
wow, so much hatred on this board...
i'm not sure why you guys are criticizing each other when everyone here are in for the same reason..make money with AIS..
buyout or not, this is very exciting time for AIS. I hope there is a big buyout because i don't have 4~5 years to wait..lol
come back in 5 years and kiss my Zorch when im proven right on MNKD. same offer to you; my best 10 stock picks against you best 10, 5 year curve. Ill guarantee my picks will smoke yours. so much so, ill bet 10,000 dollars with your anonymous bung.
i guess i pumped AAPL, GOOGLE and others years ago too. I dont even own any shares in MNKD. its not pump moron, its a belief in a winner named Alfred Mann, the same type of faith I had in Steve Jobs.
Apparently Matusow doesn't think much of Mr. Larry Smith: "no insult to him, but his writing is terrible.( i call it like i see it)... Usually when Smith writes an article about AIS, the price plummets. Also, he is a terrible stock picker (have you seen his picks? they are all horrific dogs) and that worries me, but sometimes horrible stock pickers get one right, as great stock pickers get one wrong from time to time. I hope he sells AIS soon!, lol!"
Bizarre or purposely planned http://messages.finance.yahoo.com/Stocks_%28A_to_Z%29/Stocks_A/threadview?m=te&bn=28078&tid=47184&mid=47228&tof=9&frt=2#47228 calculation by Scott Matusow?
He launches a blazing attack on Larry Smith who wrote a brilliant article yesterday. Is there something behind Scott's modus operandi? After all, he's claimed to have "done it before" (i.e. referring to stock success)
I'm shocked by Matusow raw attack on Mr. Smith!!!
Or is it planned???
