I think I did it again
Bought a little place
In some other country....
Oh baby I just meant to expand
I didn't know
what kind of land....
That it was
but it made
of sense to me
Oh baby baby
Ooops I did it again
I messed with your jobs
I don't feel ashamed
Oh baby baby
Bothell will take a big hit
I don't give a $shiiiiiiiiit
But they are in Hyderabad not Bangalore?????
From liberated POW:
Very interesting idea - so what would be the advertising slogan?
Will electrocute workers not performing a minimum on 80 hours a week!
Works at 400 Giga Metrics
I've always enjoyed pharmageek4's healthy dose of reality. Sure my posts are stretching reality of Albany Molecular, what 'best calls thinking outside of box, but it seems there are many opportunities for Albany Molecular. If Tom and friends limit business to medicinal chemistry and ignore emerging technologies, I agree with bashers that there are endless losses ahead.
"Will Tom and friends have the wisdom to take advantage of emerging technologies? Well, they've already launched into India, Singapore, and Hungary. So me thinks that Tom and friends possess such wisdom."
I do not think that these subsidiaries of AMRI were opened/bought to take advantage of emerging technologies or less restricted laws.
it is a fact that the salaries overseas, especially in india, can be as low as one tenth of an american salary, with a similar degree. AMRI is a company who used to thrive on pharma outsourcing, who has currently no option but to delocalize part of their business if they want to survive in a very competitive environment.
D'Ambra has been clear all along, AMRI is not a biotech, and the company profile clearly defines their business model. AMRI was founded by chemists, is managed by chemists and employs chemists only. It is a long stretch to think that they plan to modify their activities to pursue advanced technologies overseas
> ABSOLUTELY !!!
Funny boredinvestor, but this nonscientist thinks technological research catches up to scifi sooner than most people think. Raymond Kurzweil says the pace of technological change has been increasing and will continue increasing. With tech labs in formerly undeveloped nations like China and India that are not restricted by our bible-thumping laws, me thinks the pace of technological progress will continue increasing.

So Albany Molecular is a very interesting stock to own long term, yet miserable short term.
"Would implanted electronics make use of medicinal chemistry?"
well, not medicinal chemistry per se...this is not what med chem is about: discovery, design, identification and optimization of biologically active compounds.
Drugs can be currently delivered thanks to internal electronic devices but these techniques use physical/biomaterial/polymer chemistry. these are very interesting fields of chemistry, but they are not, as far as I know, endeavors pursued at AMRI. in the future maybe???
> Albany Nanotech is 95% semiconductor research - 300mm wafers, smaller circuits, Intel, AMD - all that stuff.
> Nothing to do with pharma or biotech.
True, but might Albany Molecular's participation lead to new lines of business? Would implanted electronics make use of medicinal chemistry?
Finally, a question relative to the board... BUT - Albany Nanotech is 95% semiconductor research - 300mm wafers, smaller circuits, Intel, AMD - all that stuff. Nothing to do with pharma or biotech.
