    I think a secondary is mandatory based on its balance sheet trends coming out of last quarterly report. Debt up. Receivables down. Accounts payable up. But, thanks to shorts, the stock rises persistently which is why I like shorts.

    People who cannot read a balance sheet are selling. With $6.26 / share in cash (after eliminating debt) and low feed ingredient prices, SAFM should have another banner year. Folks love chicken and chicken restaurant chains are opening all over USA. The latest fad is El Polo Loco which caters to the fastest growth demographic group in the Americas.

    Sentiment: Strong Buy

    A serious question

    Good question. Did you compare IBB with BIB?
    GILD has a PEG Ratio of 0.41 which can be useful in computing the potential future value of a stock.

    1. Divide the current stock price by the PEG ratio to get a rough valuation.
    2. Add cash per share.
    3. Subtract debt per share.

    --End of hard nosed valuation but keep going just for the fun of it.

    4. Adjust for all the hoopla pundits and your own thoughts.

    Sentiment: Strong Buy

    They could issue $3.00 dividend and still have a net positive cash position net of debt.
    You are right CALM management is far too smart to put themselves in a weakened cash position. CALM has one of the best managed cash:dividend policies of all corporations for long term benefit to shareholder value during the best of times AND the worst of times.

    "New antibiotic discovered

    Researchers from the US and Germany have discovered a new type of antibiotic. It is the first time in approximately 30 years, that a new antibiotic has been found.
    New antibiotic discovered

    The new antibiotic was discovered in a bacterium but until now it was not possible to produce it. The bacterium is found in the soil and is called teixcobactin. It was not known that this type of bacterium could produce an antibiotic.

    Trials in mice showed that the antibiotic is very effective against bacteria, among which the MRSA bacteria. They also claim that tuberculosis can be treated with this antibiotic. Microbiologist Gilles van Wezel from Leiden University in the Netherlands expects that this type of antibiotic could hit the market in ten years, depending on its development in the coming years.

    The first antibiotic, penicillin, was discovered by Alexander Fleming in 1928 and more than 100 compounds have been found since, but no new class has been found since 1987. The introduction of antibiotics also led to resistance in humans and animals.

    However the new discovery offers hope that many new antibiotics could be found to fight bacterial infections. Crucially, the scientists believe that bacteria will not become resistant to teixobactin for at least 30 years because of its multiple methods of attack."

    Does FrontFour Capital realize OMG is one of the best managed companies in USA? This is the same management that brought it back from the brink over the past several years. As a commodities company, OMG now has one of the best balance sheets of all public corporations.

    This is the premium company for implementation of clinical trials.

    That reason for not buying is effectively eliminated. Also the trend toward natural gas powered engines will help because that has dropped to less than 4 cents (below 3 cents now). Engines can run on natural gas OR gasoline (flip of a dashboard switch). This is a rapid trend outside USA and that is coming to USA (already available for trucks).

    why is this taking such a beating?

    This company does not meet the basic fundamental data requirements of a large cap company with negative earnings. The primary number to look at is the price:sales ratio. When over 5.0 it is overpriced.

    Also the negative retained earnings number continues to go further to the minus side:
    Retained Earnings remains negative to the tune of : ( $116,834,000).

    Finally its PEG ratio 4.42 is massively high (should be 1.0).
