Geoffrey Porges, an analyst at Sanford C. Bernstein -- mentioned in a forbes article on dendreon and their cancer drug, provenge:
"It’s hard to understate how tough Porges wound up being on Provenge. He writes that Provenge is likely to achieve peak sales of $450 million, and that it won’t hit that peak until 2021. At that point, if expenses were kept flat, the company would be only marginally profitable."
now why exactly do you think this is a great buy?
what does george zimmerman killing a defenseless teenager, and then abusing his wife and pulling a gun on his father-in-law have to do with alcaLu?
somewhere I read that when he recommends a stock, it does go up....then goes back down. his info is only good for short term trades generally....I stopped listening to him long ago when I figured out that I only lost money when I started following him.
you forget that our congress is bought and paid for by oil companies. good luck on banning petroleum based products. we can't even get rid of corporate welfare -- $110 billion per decade to big oil alone, while they post record profits...
snippets from a reuter's article from a few days ago:
By Robin Emmott and Ethan Bilby
BRUSSELS (Reuters) - The European Union's trade chief bluntly told China on Tuesday it was wasting its time trying to put pressure on him to drop plans to impose punitive import duties on Chinese solar panels.
The European Commission, the EU's executive, accuses China of flooding Europe with cheap solar panels sold at below the cost of production, and intends to impose duties.
That has prompted energetic lobbying from Beijing against the move and divisions have emerged in Europe on the issue, foreshadowing a bruising internal battle over how to respond to China's trade practices.
The case also has implications for how Europe handles another complex dispute, over Chinese telecoms equipment makers.
The Commission accuses Huawei (HWT.UL) and ZTE of dumping in Europe and gaining almost a quarter of the EU market by unfair means, a sensitive security issue as more and more European firms rely on cheaper Chinese equipment to run their mobile networks.
the downside, of course, is what happens to alcaLu and others if china retaliates with 'punitive import duties' of its own.
when I awoke early this a.m., the aftermarket chart showed activity above the $1.98 mark. then it dropped before market open. at least *someone* is making money....
"A new book on last year’s Benghazi attack in Libya concludes the killing of U.S. Ambassador Christoper Stevens and three others was in part blowback for a secret assassination operation run in North Africa by the Joint Special Operations Command and John Brennan,"
do a iittle research. the film 'Dirty Wars' is about all the secret assassinations by the U.S. in 70 countries, including american citizens.
ummm, you mis-read me, rumours. I said the person -- who keeps calling you a basher -- posts under multiple nicks. the tirades are always the same.
"there's only been one person repeatedly ranting about rumours..."
from a february businessweek article:
"The speed breakthrough in France suggests network engineers are on the brink of a solution to the coming massive bottleneck. Of course, the breakthrough gives French broadband customers living along the Paris-Lyon corridor some bragging rights, too. They now have access to the fattest pipe on the planet capable of supplying to their homes and businesses broadband speeds that will blow past even Google Fiber, the staggering 1GB (or 1,000 MB) pilot service in Kansas City, Kan., considered the world’s speediest commercial service today."
on a tangent, does anyone know if google is partnering with companies more experienced in network building, or are they going it alone?

"It's comparatively easy to run fiber optic lines at high speeds; it's another matter to sustain that pace between continents. Alcatel-Lucent's Bell Labs has found a way to go that extreme distance by relying on the basic concept behind noise-cancelling headphones. When the researchers send data across two light beams in opposing phases, they can superimpose the signals and neutralize the distortion that would normally occur at long ranges. Such clean output lets Bell Labs ramp up the signal strength and maintain high speeds across whole oceans: its test pushed 400Gbps through 7,954 miles of fiber. There's no word on how soon we'll see twin-light technique put into practice, although we suspect that a networking giant like Alcatel-Lucent wants the extra bandwidth as quickly as possible."
