    low-ball offer; lawsuit coming from ambulance chaser attorney.
    Offer should be at least 40-50 but won't.
    Only winners here are those bottom-fishers.

    Sinking ship

    BGFV nosedive has repeated before when earnings did not meet estimates.
    Then, it will have a tight trading range for awhile and max upper limit of 12.
    BGFV will trade 8.xx to 12 (yawn).

  • IMO should go no lower than 7.50, but upside only up to 10 next 3 months to August 31, 2016.
    All retail stores not doing good, just bottom fish.
    How low do many believe BGFV will go?

    In 2 or 3 years BIIB could return to over 400 and brainy will then post he bought BIIB at 250.

    Note he didn't say what price he bought BIIB and sold at 418. He could have bought at 410 (lol).

    Teva backing out?

    by limbertimber17 May 31, 2016 8:07 PM

    At the time the deal made with AGN the drug industry clicked on all cylinders.
    Since then, Hillary threat and mild correction for drug companies make it an over valuation for TEVA by 25% or so. Assume deal goes through, in 5 years the situation should be low point hurdle.
    If deal doesn't go through by 6/30/16, it will hurt TEVA more than AGN.
    Another delay for 3 more months don't look good before execution to please the party overseeing this deal.
    If no deal, TEVA does what - try again for MYL - not going to happen.

    The moral of the story: don't bet the house on a guaranteed deal.
    Or, it is not over until the fat lady sings.
    Go figure, cable mergers ok but not all brink retail stores.

    Stock price vs Oil Price

    by shastings68 Jun 9, 2016 8:06 AM
    joetong419 joetong419 Jun 15, 2016 10:52 AM Flag

    Analysts commented price of oil has peaked out and should trade flat.
    Should oil trade flat around 40-44, then UCO 14 should be the ceiling price.
    Easy money has been made, therefore, time your buys for smaller profits.

    Transcript below on the google search:

    HERERA: This week`s market monitor likes strong growth companies he says
    can do well in any macro economic environment. This is his first time
    joining us on the program. He is Joe Dennison, portfolio manager at
    Zevenbergen Capital Investments.

    Welcome. Nice to have you here.

    you. Great to be here.

    HERERA: Joe, you also mentioned that you want founder-led company-centric
    business models, correct?

    DENNISON: Yes, that`s correct.

    We love strong growth companies, customer-obsessed, founder-led. Founders
    have a much longer-term vision and over the long-terms, revenue and
    earnings growth that drives stock prices.

    MATHISEN: Your third is XPO Logistics. Not a company I know much about.

    DENNISON: Yes, XPO Logistics, is another example of strong management team
    applying technology to an old industry. They`re a third-party logistics
    provider, consolidating a very fragmented market, layering their technology
    to rapidly take market share.

    CEO Brad Jacobs has proven success with a similar business plan, rolling up
    United Ways, United Rentals (NYSE:URI). Key driver for the company is the
    shift of shopping online as more and more goods are sold online, the
    shipping complexity and demand has risen significantly.

    HERERA: We`ve got to go. Thank you so much for joining us. Great to have
    you on the program.

    Joe Dennison with Zevenbergen Capital Investments.

    I saw the program on YouTube...doe he have a good track record of successful picks.
    Seem like TSLA, NFLX and XPO all already seen their stock price peaked, unless he thinks there's more appreciation forthcoming.
    For XPO, it is trading flat after peaking at over 48 or so, crashed near 20. Now to see if BJ can work wonders with all the mergers, or company collapses. BJ 3rd try after doing same before moving on. Fear is he doesn't stick around.

    I'll like to see if XPO can stay over 30 for several months with positive earnings, no accounting exclusions, mergers paying off in this flat economy of transportation movers. CHRW is your mega monster for consistent higher stock price. So much negative issues to make XPO succeed, like high debt. Maybe XPO will surprise and by 12/31/16 it will close over 35, heading to 40-50 in 2017.

  • LNN estimates lower than estimates lately but its stock price stays above 62.
    Good news compared to couple years ago when LNN would trade under 50.
    When better earnings do exceed, LNN should trade over 80, someday.
    Or, another company like VMI comes along to make an offer over 90 for this mid cap value play.

    UVXY rarely goes up much in down market.
    Better option is to average down in price.
    UVXY could go under 9 with so many now jumping in for stocks to go higher to S&P 500 max 2150.
    Logic dictates a pullback after a 50+ point rise in 2 weeks.
    Overbought market just got more so.

    A smelly fish is a dead fish, no 2 ways about it.
    End game is to figure out high price after TEVA sale, buy back shares, smaller company buys at 12/31/16.
    My guess it heads by 275-300.
    This is not a repeat of VRX as some make it out to be.

    Two (2) more days before the close of TEVA deal...hope no more extensions into July and the FDA approval is blessed.

    I'm looking forward to see what kind of magic Saunders can work out, or he lost his golden touch, now that mergers/deals appears dead. He might surprise many. but needs time.

    Glad to see some other message than some fish guy who has nothing better to do, does not own or short AGN. What a way to waste time in life. Move on if nothing better to do than be a troll.

    Fed injecting emergency money into GOOGL

    Yellen doesn't pay attention to GOOGL's share price.
    Which comes first under 700 or over 750.

  • the upside is limited to 19.00 IMO.
    S&P 500 continues to go higher since 2/11/16 lows.
    Waiting for at least a 3% pullback S&P 500 to low 2000.
    A slower economy makes stocks trade flat to higher.

    It is a buy

    At what price is a "solid offer" reasonable?
    Many who bought on the MYL rumor buy still in the red.
    A takeout price of over 150 good enough, but the buyer will probably prefer a low-ball figure of just 125, combination of cash and stock, not all cash IMO.
    Expert opinions welcome, or no deal back to under 100?

    Don't bet the house on SPXU.
    This market doesn't want to go down...waiting for a catalyst for the selloff of 5%-10%, but could be just 2%.
    Looked this the Japanese no action interest rates was to lower the market, but buyers coming in to the rescue.
    Wait until May (next week) for more surprises on the upside/downside.
    Compared to 2015, it is taking longer for the selloffs (6 weeks until 2/11/16) and buys (going on 10 weeks).

  • might not happen until 2 to 3 years from now.
    APPL needs blockbuster gadget for the masses to buy.
    China sales slow, iphones sales won't double from current levels.
    Expect AAPL price to trade 85-110 for awhile.

    TEVA shareholders commented it overpaid for AGN generic.
    Assume transaction closes by 6/30/16, TEVA stock price movement higher/lower will give indication success or failure.
