Big money here for SHPG with this approval.
@@@@@For Shire, the approval could eventually add “several hundred million” dollars in sales, and help the company reach its goal of $10 billion in yearly sales by 2020, said Flemming Ornskov, the company’s chief executive. Vyvanse is the company’s top-selling drug, notching $1.1 billion of the company’s $4.3 billion in total sales during the first nine months of last year.
Talk about a miracle drug... treats ADHD and now also treats binge eating disorder. Could its use as a weight loss drug be on the horizon?
@@@@FDA approves an ADHD drug as the first treatment for binge-eating disorder WASHINGTON (AP) -- Federal health regulators have approved an attention deficit disorder drug for a new use: A first-of-its kind treatment for binge-eating disorder. About 2 percent of U.S. adults, or about 5 million people, have binge eating disorder, according to the Department of Health and Human Services. Regulators approved the new use for binge eating based on two studies in which adults with a history of the disorder eating had fewer instances per week while taking Vyvanse, when compared with those getting a placebo. The drug is not approved for weight loss.
1. Who is this 'big money'?
2. What indicator tells you that 'big money' is betting MTL to fail?
I have to believe it's because value investors know the stock is oversold and that value will be unlocked when oil prices move back up.to more typical levels.The problem is no one really knows how long this will take, but everyone knows it will happen and when it does this company will be valued properly again, so speculation is rampant and volatility is high. Last time I checked, the IV on options was way above HV.
This stock is pretty much the closest to a pure play on oil prices you can get with zero hedges on output, clearly defined oil assets to continue production for decades out, no significant exploration costs. and minimal capex needed going forward.
I missed out on the big panic dip this morning, but I already have a sizable holding in this stock so it's all good. It's certain that the stock price will pull back on any further drop in oil prices so I guess I'll just wait and buy more then if it happens
Forward guidance is crapola. Management has some serious explaining to do.

I am not interested in selling. In fact, I look for good days to buy more NSRGY. My last buy was back in mid-October on a dip below 69.
I cancelled my other open order. Better to sit this out and let the panic sellers define the bottom before stepping in to buy. There is always a buyer at the right price, but.I don't think the BOD will be interested in any offer if the company can position itself to survive the downturn.
I pulled my 6.50 limit order. Kept my 5.50 order open though. Could 2.80 repeat? Now THAT would be crazy. Tomorrow will be very interesting.
There will always be cowboys, and there will always be cowboys that fall off their horse too many times and break too many bones to ever get back up on it to ride again. RIP Asian Cowboy.
I never said I was short. For the record, I am long with a much reduced position. When I see a true catalyst emerge, I will increase it.
Go ahead...keep all your money tied up in this stock and wait another 5-10 years for the coal recovery. But today's reality (and that of the last few years) is that coal prices have been steadily dropping. That is a simple fact, and coal companies' prospects will not improve until prices move up. A turnaround will NOT occur overnight. There will be plenty of time to detect the recovery and move into coal stocks to ride the uptrend.
And just to make sure we're all up to date... did you notice in the latest Q reports that several railroaders have noted flat volumes in coal shipments? NSX and CNI specifically stated that.
@@@@Event Canadian National Railway Co. (CNR-T, CNI-N) reported Q4/14 EPS of $1.03, above the consensus estimate/our forecast of $0.97/$1.02. Impact: POSITIVE Revenue was up 17% y/y to a record $3.2bln, on an industry-leading volume increase of 9% (RTMs). Volume was up in all segments except coal, with double-digit growth in four of the seven segments.
Raised the target price but no change in rating.
@@@@@TD Investment Conclusion We see CN as a relatively high-quality, low-risk industrial stock. Our target price increases to $83.00 from $77.00 based on our earnings revisions and a 0.5x point increase in our target multiple. We are now valuing CN at 16.5x 2016 EPS vs. 16.0x previously. A 16.5x multiple is slightly above the high-end of the group’s historical trading range (16.1x), but we believe that CN will continue to attract a premium in the context of its strong leverage to strength in the domestic North American economy (vs. global economic uncertainty), and its strong earnings track record.
Oh wait... there it is.

Event Canadian National Railway Co. (CNR-T, CNI-N) reported Q4/14 EPS of $1.03, above the consensus estimate/our forecast of $0.97/$1.02.
Impact: POSITIVE Revenue was up 17% y/y to a record $3.2bln, on an industry-leading volume increase of 9% (RTMs). Volume was up in all segments except coal, with double-digit growth in four of the seven segments. Same-store pricing improved to 4%, up sequentially from “just over 3%” in Q3/14, and we expect that trend to gradually continue through 2015–2016 given that capacity has tightened for both trucking and rail. Operating income was up 30% y/y, EPS increased 36%, and the operating ratio came in at 60.7%, down 410bps. CN was candid that an easy prior-year comparable; a weaker Canadiandollar (added $0.06/share); the fuel surcharge lag; and lower stock-based compensation were contributing factors, but we consider the company’s core performance very impressive notwithstanding those tailwinds. CN raised its annual dividend by 25% to $1.25/share, and is now targeting a 35% payout ratio (from ~30%) such that we expect dividends to increase faster than EPS for a period of time. CN guided to “double-digit” 2015 EPS growth vs. 2014 adjusted EPS of $3.76, which implies EPS of $4.14 at the low-end (10% growth). We are comfortable with our forecast of $4.32 (consensus is $4.22) because we believe that CN has a well-established track record of guiding conservatively at the beginning of the year. We have left our 2015 EPS estimate unchanged in light of certain nearterm headwinds (pension expense, ~20% of revenue tied to WTI-based fuel surcharge programs), but have increased our 2016 forecast by ~5%.
