    Expectations for 2013

    the past don't matter, it's all about the coming years. So it makes sense to clarify expectations for 2103. I expect:

    Revenue: 150 Mio. US$
    Profit: breakeven
    Chart: 12 US$ will be the double bottom
    Target: 18 US$

    This will lead to a market capitalization of round about 900 Mio. US$. Thats ok. for a 150 Mio. US$ medical company with 30% annual growth for some years to come.

    what do you think ???

    Sentiment: Buy

    • It is often the beaten down companies that have the best prospect for returns. Look at RIMM recently. The longer the sideways move the more explosive the move higher can be. Monday I talked with a broker friend about how beaten down VVUS was, and how given their slow start with selling Qsymia for weight loss, they were bound to improve sharply since they would only be reporting their second quarter. I told him we should buy the Jan '14 $15 calls because they were inexpensive given the time frame. I got distracted and didn't do it, but yesterday those same calls were up 33% at one point. Unless you believe MAKO is done and will slowly sink into bankruptcy (I don't and I'm sure you don't either), buying some long dated calls is not a bad strategy. Personally, I take the profits quickly in that situation if I also own some stock.

    • that would be great numbers for mako in 2013, but unrealistic imo.
