$60 bucks, by 12/31/09. So why waste your time on this board or watching this thing? Each quarter will bring new revelations on HPV-cancer link, and QGEN's core business will continue to grow strongly. More M&A on the way as well, I'm sure.
The following entries are booked for a selected event:"The Guidelines Price Championship."
Marsala-$20.49 (deductions only for kegs not six packs)
Good Luck Gentlemen.All board members are welcome to enter.
P.S-Playhard please select what the closing price would be on Friday,October 5th.Your suggested price of $21.00 was for the close on Wednesday when you suggested this contest.Two days need to be factored in to have a chance against these sharks.Thanks!
Liambert, I recognize your ID from another board but not sure which. I'm one_thousand_points_of_white and I own this stock in a couple accounts as a result of the QGEN purchase of EGEI.OB not too long ago. You own ITRA right? Checkout CPHD, I expect that they will soon do another dilution to get some R&D funding. I owned them from the 2's and thought that I was doing well to sell them in the 12's...Big mistake...:-(...go QGEN!
i'll go 22.30, what the heck
have to admit i'm pretty blown away by this move...not a huge short base and dropped from last month
as louie points out IF this is anticipation of the guidelines the risk is suddenly higher if we don't get what we expect...had thought downside would be minimal even with a preferred but we shall see...flip side is, that qgen has exhibited that at least for a few days it can act like a momentum stock so pop on mandatory could have legs
feel blind on this stock in part due to overseas trading/news/coverage etc, wondering if something else has transpired we aren't aware of, even if it's just upgrades etc
worth noting that the 180 day PMA mark where the FDA is statutorily obligated to have replied to Roche on Amplicor came and went in early September which would suggest that the clock stopped somewhere along the way due to issues with the PMA...that's supposition though...remember the average time for an Amplicor PMA of any kind was well over 18 months and most were single analyte tests used for diagnosis not screening...higher hurdle obviously
Over the last 3 months stock has traded on average a million shares.The last five trading sessions it has traded 10.3 million or double the average each day.Today this trend is extended.
With no news announcement the guidelines appear to be an open secret.The attendees(100-200)at the Asccp consensus conference don't have zip-lock lips.The volume and upward price movement is indicating mandated guidelines imo.
White, your _thousand_ name rings a bell, it must be the ITRa board back when there were more than 1 post every 2 days. I do own ITRA and post there every so often. I think ITRA will be 15 from the current 5 in a year. Keep in mind I've been wrong about it for the last 2 years as they continue to stagnate on the revenue side. Owning ITRA is like being a Cub fan...it is always "wait til next year".
I have owned QGEN for about 2 years. Somebody actually recommended CPHD to me early in the year and I never pulled the trigger.
I don't know if you are a gold bull but I also post on a handful of gold stock boards mostly GSS these days. It's the most undervalued of the group (and extremely high risk) at the moment.
