    the traditional has the same problems, for me since I am a large saver, real estate has been a better vehicle for long term gains and deffered taxes and it fits my personality better

    I would never vote
    for hilliary but then I also know how to avoid much of taxes and worked diligently to do so for the last 40 yrs. I even have set up a family trust to put all my possessions in to avoid estate tax which in my bracket is higher than income tax. I didn't say I loved paying taxes but for me being retired to pay lots of taxes is not really in the cards as I can control my income easily.but to pay taxes you have to make lots of money and that I don'tt mind. UNDERSTAND? but let me blow
    a bubble in most peoples thoughts Roth IRA s are not tax free.
    and here is why: when you retire and withdraw they use up all your 15% tax braclet with "nontaxable "roth income and puch the rest of your income including social security into the 40% bracket. then they use this ROTH income to puch you into a higher bracket for your medicare payment which can increase as much as 3 fold even though you paid in 10X what the aveage person has paid in.

    you buy it you lose more on the downside. Seems to me the better play and margin is not required.

    lets say you are interested in buying HZNP shares then why not do it with options today you could have bought jan 2017 $8 calls and sold jan 2017 calls for about a $6 debit for each share which means you would if assigned get it for $14 instead of C$16.80 yes you are capped out at $20 but on a $6 investment that is a double If you bought the stock it would have to go to $33.50 for a double and you don't lose unless it closes below $14 whereas if

    Greed has turned to Fear Again

    you know so little I have been doing these types of bull call spreads for over 6 yrs and 90% are profitable with great returns and limited risk when done in the money. I am covered until 13 ;price which means for me to lose money the stock has to go down 20% in 6 months, while possible and consequently 10% loss on spreads it is not likely and why 89% are profitable. Wise up and get off your ugly horse. You are an annoyance and most ignore you

    personally, I love the hype. I have been able to reduce my cost over $4 per share by selling call options on this since entering and it is getting me closer to break even lol got lots of july 30s sold at 70 cents currently to lower me even more.and those options are way above my cost basis so bring it on.

    sounds wonderful but not practical, the end product is you have to make a living and while you are doing all that free labor because of the hoops that have to be jumped through you could be treating other patients who may die waiting for you to fill out someone elses forms because their insurance or the govt is worried about money and not anyones life. you sound like a newbie to the profession and not a business person, I hope you don't go broke or your wife leave you or you have an affair because you don't feel treated properly. talk to me in 15 yrs or after you are working for yourself and not on someoneelses payroll. To expect a dr to have to do all the ridiculous paperwork is what has caused their salaries to drop in half and many to quit practicing

    If you are the doctor and have to spend a large amount of time getting no payment to do so then you are very unlikely going to take the time to do it. It is called econ 101

    are you so stupid as to not listen to what he is saying.
    why do liberals and govt feel that doctors should pay to work for a patient? when you put up obstacles to practice then they quit practicing and you get inferior doctors in the future. this is the way govt and ins cares about you, they want to make it hard to get care so that they can control costs and blame it on the doctor. Whatever profession you worked in how many items did you pay for to give away to the needy, how many hrs did you work for free? or did you ever pay so you could go to work. GET REALISTIC.

    what he is saying is that he doesn't want to spend hrs and hrs of his and his staffs time doing paperwork with Vconnect to get a script filled. This is the way ins and the govt cares about your health. they want to control costs not make you healthy. It is why when I practiced dentistry before retiring I gave up doing medicare. You couldn't spend 5hrs to get a $5 reimbursement. Why do you expect the doctor to pay to get you a script or anyone else.

    it is either a well kept secret or the rumors have all been false, if a buyout was leaked and it was going to happen you wouldn't have seen the large sell off IMO I am sticking with my thought that nothing happens for at least 3 months or longer You may have rumors but they are selling opportunities until an actual announcement.

    I hope you are correct topgun but three months will go by quickly and DD by a purchaser should take at least that long. If someone has already been doing DD the employees would have whispered it out by now and we would not have ever seen the 13s as we did.
