Of course this is a venue for those who are longs, vs those that are shorts. The question to ask, is not why, why, why, but who states the probable, possible, and likely outcomes. The perspective of course must be mitigated against whether short, medium or long term price targets are being questioned. A problem with many/most boards, is that people mix up all of these. So when you get a short term move, it is thrown out as proof of longs term investors being wrong or right, whatever the case. I am VERY clear, whatever you think the motives are. Who cares, if the information or view is correct? Check out the FACTS. Facts here to check out: cash position vs debt. VERY GOOD, Approval of CABO, and what that means, ALONG with potential for hugely expanded markets. ALL points to huge upside.IMO but a FACT. Partnerships could possible, OUTSIDE OF CABO, produce billions of dollars to EXEL: FACT , everything is looking good. There are NO negative results or big concerns about money or results. They all look good, and balance sheet is excellent. Do your own DD, but the FACTS look great. Thats why I invest. The rest is just fun and games.
Sentiment: Strong Buy
Seriously, I've had nomad on ignore for over a year now, every once in a while, for entertainment, I change the settings and put him back on. Just like many on this board I have been frustrated by the lackluster performance of EXEL. I have placed dozens of other crazy (way out) posters on ignore (bashers and pumpers). I check the MB about 4 times daily unless I'm out on the golf course.
If their posts (or mine) bother you then just put these guys or gals (and me) on ignore, or if you are a long term investor, as many people claim, just stop checking in daily. Life is too short and precious to bother with things that are annoying.
Sentiment: Strong Buy
The infestation is the work of only a few Hedge Fund lackeys who are working hard to make MB über bullish as their boss continues to short. They are low level minions getting paid peanuts but believe it or not, their job is an integral part of the game and the success toward more profitable trades by the ports that be. Been there, done that :-)
EXEL remains in the stranglehold of the hedge fund who is short 40 million shares. Dead $$$$ until 80% of that is covered. Zero chance of buyout at this juncture as EXEL remains an open book for the HF in control. Information is king in this game and the HF has all the info. No risk. Nada. Just more $$$$$$. Chart remains bearish. EXEL remains an avoid until HF moves on..which won't be anytime soon. Lots of other stocks in beautiful setups out there that are breaking up and out. GL on your future endeavors!
"The infestation is the work of only a few Hedge Fund lackeys who are working hard to make MB über bullish as their boss continues to short." You and buysignal are bookends. In all respects identical except for being mirror images of each other. Yin and yang.
"EXEL remains in the stranglehold of the hedge fund who is short 40 million shares." Here we go. Would that be the hedge fund that is also long 5 million shares? "Chart remains bearish." Unlike that uber bullish chart on Arqule floating along below every MA and EMA known to mankind and otherwise?
A complete crock of shyte from nomad. If the "Hedge Fund" is continuing to short as he states, imagine the position they are in, with nobody going to sell them the stock to cover. One day, its the Private Placement holder covering his position, next its a hedge fund short 40 million shares. I hope he is right about the hedge fund, as we will see one of the biggest short squeezes ever, if that is the case. Time is not on their side, if that is true, its on the longs side, as where exactly does he think they are EVER going to find the 40 million shares as the good news just keeps on coming????
Do you think ROCHE or GENENTECH are going away? How about the CABO FRANCHISE, think that is going anywhere, but producing more and more revenue and expanded applications. The B + S artists here folks, is NOMAD, who in reality is probably the very person he says he is not. What is that? A guy hired to try and keep folks from buying, and get some to sell. Think about it, before being so quick to think others are in some convoluted theory where they say they are long, and he says they are short. Does that actually make ANY SENSE at all????
Buy, accumulate and hold. The trading games are going to get crushed and the value will overwhelm any real shorts, if not already covered, as would be the case of the Private Placement theory. BUT, do not forget, that either way, either somebody has to cover big time, OR stock that overhung the market, is in effect already sold.
Forget the petty stuff about who is who, who posts under what names. THINK about why on good news and up market days the shorts are so desperate to keep the price down. Then look at the unfolding story and draw your own conclusions. I say clearly: this is going up for long term investors, and for traders, play it as you like. I do both! But understand where the odds are in terms of long term growth and share price. Way higher. So get fooled out if you like, but blame nobody but yourselves if you miss the huge run up when it happens.IMO
