  • "In May 2012, Elizabeth Mittendorf, M.D., Ph.D., an assistant professor in the Department of Surgical Oncology, and her colleagues published the 24-month landmark analysis of their phase I and II trials of E75.

    Excerpt From OncoLog, January 2013, Vol. 58, No. 1

    "The group’s findings opened the door to the phase III PRESENT (Prevention of Recurrence in Early-Stage, Node-Positive Breast Cancer with Low to Intermediate HER2 Expression with NeuVax Treatment) study, currently the only phase III trial of a breast cancer vaccine. Dr. Mittendorf is the overall principal investigator of the multinational study.

    This randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled trial will enroll approximately 700 breast cancer patients who were rendered disease free following standard treatment. Patients must be positive for HLA-A2 or HLA-A3 and have had cancers that were scored as HER2 1+ or 2+ by immunohistochemistry. The vaccine will be given once a month for 6 months and then given as a booster inoculation every 6 months thereafter through 3 years. Because GM-CSF causes inflammation at the injection site, it will be given to patients in each study group, serving as the immunoadjuvant for the vaccine group and as an active placebo for the control group. The primary endpoint of the study is 3-year disease-free survival.

    Positive results from this trial, researchers hope, would eventually lead to indications for the E75 vaccine in the routine care of breast cancer patients. “We are all cautiously optimistic—and excited—as we wait for the results. If they do show that E75 has significant benefit, it could be an amazing opportunity for our cancer patients,” Dr. Litton said"

    If what you say is true, the balance sheet does not matter. I can tag along and ride the manipulation until I decide that I am happy with my profit or the chart reverses course. AMD has gone up 60%. If I waited from the balance sheet to improve before I got in, I would have missed the 60% move

    So, what's your point?

  • Is something up? Could it be that insiders have privileged take over or other information that has prohibited their trading in AMD since November 2014?

    Any thoughts? Anyone.

    AMD earnings

    Dear pessimist, Are you an accountant?
    Please get your facts straight before misinforming the public.If AMD recorded the payment to GF in accounts payable last quarter, that is the same as taking the charge in last quarter’s earnings. And it will have no bearing on this quarter’s earnings.

    Can you please provide an Accounting references to support your statement? If not, please rescind your incorrect statement so that small innocent investors don.t get mislead and trade the stock based on misinformation. You could be liable.

  • GE has the cash to put a car charger in every corner and to make TSLA the number one auto company in the world. GE needs to reduce expansion in the of the oil and gas production business and focus on more alternative forms of energy. They are already heavily involved in the wind turbine business and it make a lot of sense to expand in the energy storage using TSLA batteries. The TSLA battery business can explode under the GEs umbrella.
    There is tremendous value in the future use of TSLA batteries, not just in cars but in everything related to energy.

    You are so wrong!!! Durata BODs cannot solicit for a higher offer but there is nothing in the offer clause that can prevent any other company from coming in with a much higher offer. Any other company can still come in with a higher "unsolicited" offer. In my opinion, this is only the beginning. Based on the value and effectiveness of this drug, I expect more offers at much higher price. I am buying more DRTX. The risk reward could be huge in my favor.

  • Mr. Reed also said during the Bloomberg interview that he’s restructured AMD’s debt so it’s no longer burning through cash reserves and is delivering predictable sales growth and improved profitability!!!!! Why is no one on this board paid any attention (ignored) this very positive and important comment???

    I interpret this comment to mean that Mr. Reed is telling us that the AMD profits will continue to improve going forward before the arrival of the new brand new technologies. You can imagine what will happened after the introduction of the new technologies.

    I trust his words and I will stay long and accumulate more on the way up or during bumps on the road if we wait to load up until for the new AMD technologies hit the market, the price of AMD stock most likely be double or much higher that it is today. I already control over 100,000 shares and I am not afraid. "Patience and persistence are man's greatest virtues." Don't let the wall street thieves and bashers scare you out and steal your shares away from you. Mr. Reed has a lot more to gain from a higher stock price than any one of us on this board and I am confident that he will succeed. He is no rookie in this game. I have faith that he will be proven right and he will burn all the short sellers!

    Sentiment: Strong Buy

    AMD Buyout

    I think so.. They no longer compete much with AMD. Intel would want to buy them for their ATI graphics so that they can eliminate their reliance on NVDA.

    Just need something in America to believe in

    Sorry you feel that way about competition. Intel's tactics have pushed AMD to innovate and overcome those types of tactics. Eastman Kodak stopped innovating and resorted to competitive practices to run other film makers out of business. In the end, it all backfired on them and they are no longer in existence. Intel better start innovating instead of undercutting everyone in order to preserve market share.

    Go AMD!

  • fternoss fternoss May 2, 2014 9:11 AM Flag

    They can afford to buy AMD out and they most likely will to protect their position. They already own close to 25%.

    Good reentry point suggestions

    Wait until after the class action lawsuits are announced. Investors lost a lot of money (probably billions) due to this screw up and attorneys are probably getting their ammunition ready to start firing.

    Be very careful! Past performance does not guarantee future results. If you are up $47K, you may ant to take the profit off the table and have some fun with it. You never go broke by taking a little profit once in a while.

    Consider yourself luck. FDA approval is imminent and the stock is headed much higher. Once a week antibiotic is a major advance in therapy.

    In my opinion, the stock is headed much higher than current levels.

    Sentiment: Strong Buy

    The only thing that can save Affymax if the investigation reveals that AMGN may have been involved in foul play in an effort to destroy Omontys. There was billions of dollars at stake here and anything is possible.

    Ford to increase aluminum usage in trucks,

    by dipsydoddle Jun 17, 2013 5:24 PM

    No indication yet that Ford will use aluminum in their trucks.

  • fternoss fternoss Jun 18, 2013 6:37 AM Flag

    The dreamliners are made mainly made with plastic. Very little aluminum. This is actually bad news for Alcoa.

  • Based on BHPs price per share and revenue per share, AA should be trading around $60.00 per share. Am I missing something? How can BHP generate 14.4% net profit margin and AA only 1%. See stats below from Yahoo Finance. This tells me that either BHP is significantly overvalued or AA has a huge upside potential (10x the current price) if AA can manage to increase the profit margin on its revenue even by a a small fraction of that reported by BHP.

    Both companies generate approximately the same revenue per share. However, for some unexplained reason, BHP genrates much higher profit margin. Since both companies are in similar business, one would expect similar profit margins. This variance is difficult to understand/explain, especially since BHPs debt load is 37% higher than AAs.

    In my opinion, based on the stat below, Based on revenue and debt comparisons, AA should be trading for $60 per share or higher than BHP. Yes the profit margin variance needs to be expalined but if AA can make even a small improvement in net profit margin, its stock price could skyrocket, maybe not to $60 per share but signifcantly higher than where it is today.

    Comments and your opinion are welcomed.

    From Yahoo Finance:
    BHP's gross revenue per share =$25.17
    Net profit per share (EPS) = $3.60 (14.4% profit margin)
    Debt = $35.48 billion or $13.33 per share (37.5% higher than AAs debt)
    Cash on hand per share = $1.98
    BHP stock price per share = $63.63 (760% higher than AA)
    AA revenue per share = $22.03
    Net profit (EPS) =$0.23 (generates only 1% profit margin)
    Debt $8.92 billion or $8.33 per share (37.5% less than BHPs debt)
    Cash on hand per share = $1.45 (24% less than BHP)
    AA stock price per share = $8.36 (760% cheaper than BHP)

    Only miniscule volume of 2700 shares. Most likely someone short on the stock dumbed to create panic at the open. Look at the ask price only 100 shars for sale at 1.89. I am not concened about the premarket action.
