There was a conspiracy theory that Trump never wanted to be president and was a Clinton placed trojan horse to implode the GOP. If so, mission accomplished. Trump and the Clintons were good friends going back many years.
Yes, a heck of a pullback is right. Below $75/share, I think a lot is being discounted from GILD's pipeline. But of course all of biotech seems to be out of favor due to the pricing backlash going on at the political level.
Saw that. I think it is way too early to see optimism or pessimism in NASH for Gilead or others. Frankly, Gilead is trading so depressed these days, NASH pipeline could be a total bust for it and it would still be trading at an okay level to hold. M&A will still be a driving catalyst for GILD, but they are being careful with not over paying for something like Allergan did for Tobira
Saudi used to need close to $100 oil to finance all of their welfare government programs without running a deficit. Now that they have cut a whole bunch of fat out of their spending, maybe $77 is all they need now.
You never know what the future will bring, but it goes without saying that these articles are littered with coulds and maybes to cover their behinds in a journalistic sense. I could write an article with the title that I *could* become the world's richest individual by the end of 2016. I mean hey, it could happen, right? :-)
I helped my mom recently do a cash out refi on her 30yr fixed to a 3.5% rate which just closed last week, so that is nice. Just a very modest cash out though to fund a few remodel projects. Kind of funny though how many hoops she had to jump through to get it done even though the debt/equity on that house is very low.
And yet I read about all these new home buyers having an easy time financing a purchase with 3% down and listing their family members and roommates as additional payers to help bolster their case that they can afford buying the property that is 10x their annual salary. Kind of a bizarro world we have been living in since 2009.
It cracks me up that Feds even try to say with a straight face that healthcare inflation was only flat to just minimally up the past year.
the NYSE A/D chart is the #1 thing to keep an eye on IMO to gauge whether it is time to go short. Until then, remain long with enough cash on hand to still sleep well at night during this late bull market
Nope, I have not heard much. These things can be very slow moving and take forever to wrap up.
At least you have the monthly dividend payout to make any potential waiting more palatable. I think your trade will work out okay. In the meanwhile, it is happy hour! Time for a Stone IPA (or three) to wipe away any and all thoughts of central banksters like Yellen.
What a sell out to the establishment she is. Janet should be ashamed, although I know to be a bankster means to leave ones soul at the door.
I'm sure Sony will sell a lot of their VR packs to be used with the PS4 console because of the captured audience. However, it will be a watered down experience compared to the higher end PC technology. The best VR experiences need very high end hardware to run at a high resolution. It is exciting how far VR has come, but I would much rather own the next gen of HTC Vive or Oculus than buy the Sony VR
Since I think it is likely US will see a recession within next 12 months, I agree with wisejman that buying/holding any BDC for that long may not result in any gains, including the dividends. But if I were forced to buy one, I think ARCC at current price is okay. TPVG still trades at a big discount to NAV, but there are questions on that one in terms of NII and whether they will lever up or not. TSLX is a well run BDC, but price is too high. Same with TCPC
Was it Delta or United that decided to form their own oil refinery? That may come in handy when the time finally comes for oil to really start spiking up past $100 again.
I personally highly doubt Trump makes it a close race in the end. Clinton is very cunning, plus she has (and is using) a massive war chest of cash for her campaign. I think she is outspending Trump like 500 to 1? She has hired a large amount of investigators that are searching every dark nook for *any* damning things about Trump. As you can see, there are many. She got somebody to leak his tax return and open up the conversation of why he has a 900 million NOL and has not paid fed taxes in 18 years. She also found that special someone who had Trump on tape saying the lewd comments.
Not only that, she makes sure to release these tidbits at pre-set times in order to make the most of it. I can almost guarantee there is more in store. By the time Clinton is done destroying his character, Trump will have 0% of the women vote and close to 0% of the non-white vote. This race is over IMO.
