    So republicans Hate the Troops?

    You're the moron! One of THEE very first things ALL new trooper dogs learn when nit comes to security is that "you never leave/abandon, your post until properly relieved or ordered to do so"...........in peace time it can be a serious offense depending upon the status of the situation IE real life or exercise. In either case, there will be punishment.

    In combat? Well first thing here is that this guy is a volunteer and if ANYONE was hurt or killed either looking for him, or as a result of his abandonment of post, the ramifications are serious.

    Finally, I am not sure when the UD GOV'T decided dealing with terrorists was in our interest. allowing 5 kingpins to return to the battle.....not even telling Karzi (or however his name is spelled) places the future of Afghanistan in even greater uncertainty. JOKEBAMA is the one who SURGED troops in Afghanistan and now suddenly, all is forgotten, forgiven and our lost/wounded/maimed for life troopers and their mission are of no importance?

    A nation where girls have to hide their faces, can't go to school, and boys of no importance are raped by taliban types who drag their harem of young boys along with them to their camps.....where a women can be murdered by her husband for adultry whether adultry was committed or not, an unwed women can be killed for being pregnant.....

    Well it sure is good to see a leftist emotional type ( LMAO) imply that things in Afghanistan are okay and our fearless/brainless leader who is making up the rules as he goes, is okay!

    Most deserters in war time are executed...in any army, throughout the history of war. Oh and read your history koop....you might learn something.

  • and give me a DIV, not a solicitation.

    Mr Moynihan, I keep receiving solicitations in the mail for a person I do not know. i suspect he rented a room here years ago while he was a Prof at a local University but I can not verify such. I'm not sure how much the BULK MAIL solicitations cost but expanding this to a nationwide issue of wrong addresses one can only onder at the WASTED $ you are spending on erroneous info.

    It wouldn't be a big deal except i bought this house over 5 years ago and have been receiving solicitations that entire time. I have contacted those you say to contact over that 5 years to no avail. Today i spoke to a M.E. rep, received an email from M.E. giving me #'s to call, M.E was the wrong number so then I contaced the BAC number and they said it would take 12 weeks.

    If I get one PIECE sent after the 12 weeks, I will pursue this matter in small claims court and make you pay even more for your continued use of bad data, and your continued WASTE of SHAREHOLDER funds that COULD HAVE GONE into a DIV.

    How many over 5 years? How much over 5 years? AND....why the fricking puzzle palace of a magical mystery tour to find SOMEONE at M.E. or BAC who can address this issue!?

    Finally, i can almost assure you the person you are sending this solicitation too is likely STILL in your system at someother address. How does it feel to be spending MONEY and EFFORT to contact him at EVERY ADDRESS of RECORD your system has him at? Just wondering because my DIV is pure #$%$ and you've wasted it now for 5 years. I should CHARGE you for the time I have spent TRYING TO CORRECT your antiquated, B S system. get a CLUE Mr Moynihan.

  • #4, CELG vote later this month to decide on a 2 X 1 stock split! NO, forget the split, its not the split, it's the message that Celg ldrship and board are exuding when the future they see/anticipate JUSTIFIES a 2 X 1 SPLIT! Check and checkmate!

    #5...Wall St. Snipers posing as analysts are ignoring expected revlimid revenues in the near term but more importantly, going forward! Hey....when others are saying they don't want to play.....and after considering their reasoning.............well, move over! I think it's a buy!

    ALL IMHO of course!

    On second thought, save some cash, skip the tomatoes, use a couple thin slices of cucumber...it tastes better with tsatskik anyways and I'm sure the market for cuc's is wide open!

  • I guess we'll see an ex-div late this week or early next week, I expect the announcement will be .05-,04 DIV or, GULP.....01 cents............................................crickets.......crickets......crickets.................

  • Dear WEN....outside of greece or Chicago, it seems tzatziki is one the worlds best kept sauce secrets. A thicked taztziki sauce generously smothered over chicken strips...with shredded lettuce...and thin sliced tomatoes...with a nice garlic pickle spear on the side...........and I would not use a chiabatta bun, i would use the pretzel bun or infact, a greek type shell if you will!

    Where is it? Oh and garlic fries......homefries..!!

    OR...just bring back that PBC !

    Extremely fishy! I mean CELG's board meets in June to decide on a stock split...PFE is on the hunt for MORE PIPELINE (and tax benefits wuld have been the icing on the cake w/ AZN) BUT......PHARMA NEEDS BIOs PIPELINE !!!!!!!
    Motley just posted a nice article suggesting PFE should buy CELG and I would add this, if PFE is serious about adding some PIPELINE....it had better get started because I suspect CELG is on a FEW BIO and PHARMA radars.................................all IMHO..............so one feable way to cap the price somewhat is to come from out of NO WHERE w/a downgrade....and YET MAINTAIN long term growth targets? LMAO! Unbelievable.....!!!!!!

    GILD #10 Most Shorted Stock

    by dborgers May 29, 2014 2:50 PM
    boar292hog boar292hog May 29, 2014 8:08 PM Flag

    I think sooner! SHORTs are up against it now. No sell in may and go away.....rates are coming DOWN..meaning equities UP......and the big one.....BUYOUT FEVER is beginning to show its head! PFE and other large PHARMA need PIPELINES......big BIO has the big pipelines.....co's like GILD, CELG are both very nice players with alot of pipeline depth and relative to other values in the sector, cheaper today than they will be in 6-12 months IMHO !

    SHORTs better put their cups on....there's gonna be alot of high kicking here and frankly, though June is just starting...lets face it, THE SECOND HALF of the year is here!

    boar292hog boar292hog May 29, 2014 8:00 PM Flag

    HEDGIES got caught....AGAIN...thinking rates are going up and therefore, the market will show a correction, OOPS ! Pant'sd AGAIN!

    As long as the US and other developed nations within the western world have HUGE DEBT issues, RATES will never go up because at some point, this would bring an economic disaster unline any the world has seen since WWII/the Depression//etc., etc.

    Smart HEDGIES started unwinding a couple weeks ago IMO and helped support this run back into the 80's. However, the majority of bottomfeeders (Hedgies) were caiught holding the bag so to speak IMO.....and well, time will tell what they end up doing!

    Hey Hedgies !? Is it getting hot in here.....? LMAO! Looks like another year where indexes are going to double or triple hedgie returns....last year was a banner year for indexes and a toilet outlet year for the overwhelming majority of hedgies.

    Hedgies need to start moving out of the red zone....GILD (and other wrongfully labelled as a MoMo stocks like CELG, FB and others), is one HIV drug announcement away from really knocking it ouf of the park not to mention several other phase II / III drugs about to tip the HedgieWedgie boat over as it crashes onto the SHORT REEF of destruction. All IMHO....and hedgies....your crystal ball don't work!

    SD is an enigma

    by keen7447 May 28, 2014 10:09 AM
    boar292hog boar292hog May 28, 2014 12:09 PM Flag

    IMHO....and purely specualtion on my part.....I think SD could be in negotiations. If this is the case...and the figure is hypothetically 10-12 bucks....then it sure isn't going to help the process if the stock price runs up to 8-10 bucks which I might add, is where I THINK IT SHOULD BE RIGHT NOW!

    IE...if the stock were to run to 8-10 bucks today...then the sell premium would take the price up to that 12-14 range with goodwill and anticipated reserve value compounded by rising energy price expectations looking forward.

    In my view, if this is in fact what is going on then it is fast approaching the "do it or get off the pot" time because the upward price pressure is stronger today than anyother time in the last 5 years IMHO. While I would like to see a price of 14 or higher.....I'll take a quick 10-12 and I think unfortuantely, many others would as well. 10-12 really ignores the potential value of SD/reserves based on above justifications/notions.

    BUT.....a quick sale gives all parties a reasonably good deal...but this window is VERY FAST closing IMHO...because I do not see the price holding back for much longer despite the SHORT weinerdog playing games at my, your, our expense. Again...all IMHO.....

    Let's HOPE that F has finally changed direction, the turn upward has been justified for MONTHS now especially given the backdrop of an imploding GM (general malaise, gov't motors...whatever)!

    However my cynical side says this is little more than inchworm SHORTs covering temporarily to prevent from having to pay that dividend. Yes, its DIV time next week and covered call writers are backing out as well as SHORTs who want to save 12.5 cents per share.......those who can that is... .

    Oh well.....F should be in the low 20's RIGHT NOW, in my view....especially given the 25 or so new/upgraded models some of which will change the landscape in their particular model genre....IE..aluminum F150 ! YOWZA! Can't wait........AND.....NATGAS/Gas hybrids! Oh and the FOCUS is great wordlwide...the FIESTA is going to usurp Focus in volume over the next 12-24 months! Nice car. low price...good fuel econ....great world stage player!

    Is CELG a butout candidate?

    by boar292hog May 22, 2014 9:23 PM
    boar292hog boar292hog May 26, 2014 10:53 PM Flag

    OOPS! Just read "Bottomline" and in it, MS names a few buyout likely candidates based on some analysis screen they have created....if I understand this correctly! At any rate, CELG is one of the likely BIOs mentioned and IT MAKES sense!

    PHARMA NEEDS BIO, PHARMA needs BIO's PIPELINE ! GILD's SOVALDI is a game changer. Sovaldi is a CURE, not a treatment and I suspect BIO will continue through innovation and discovery to start racking up some more big BIO discoveries like this! I suggest PHARMA is not only taking not but, probably considering every angle of approach to a list of targeted BIO's....again, CELG being one!

    Time will tell but onrthing is certain, BIO is on the verge of a sector BULL MARKET......or at least the key players are though I suspect many of the smaller players figure into the scenario as well.

    It's all about PIPELINES when it comes to what PHARM does not have, that BIO does have! All IMHO of course...............

  • Just read "Bottomline" and in it, an article discusses MS's view on likely buyouts GILD being one such potential target. Of course this is pure speculation but when one considers the PHARMA pipeline which is nothing compared to what it once was, and then the BIO pipeline..............well it's only logical that PHARMA start sizing up some of the leading BIOs, GILD being one such consideration.

    Lets face it, SOVALDI is a GAME CHANGER....it is not a treatment, it is a cure. One can only imgaine where BIO takes us from here funded by BOOMERS wanting to live forever (I'm a Boomer!) and so are the MAJORITY of leadership staffs in both the PHARMA and BIO sectors! There's nothing more motivating than wanting to live! I suggest we are entering a HUGE BULL MARKET in the BIO sector and I suspect PHARMA is taking note as well as game planning their wish list of "what if's" and from there, how do we pay for it.

    Timing is critical in the sense that the more successes like SOVALDI that make it to market, the richer the price for these leading BIOs who are changing the medcial landscape at every level. All IMHO.....

    SD and price

    boar292hog boar292hog May 24, 2014 6:22 PM Flag

    SD is still a "show me" stock or so it seems. With recent well data...maybe finally...Sd becomes a booked flight out of town and folks bid up the price of those seats before take off! Guess we'll see!

    Yet another possible explanation is someone keeping a lid on the price to accomplish negotiations of some sort. Time will tell, either way, I think we go up from here and frankly, I'm alittle surprised we aren't having this discussion at a price of 7.50 verses the 6.50.....range of late ! All IMHO....

    "BUYOUT"....geeeeeezzzzzz! I must be going blind! Keybonics to me please sir !

  • I think so. The PFE move to buy AZN is motivated by the tax benefits as well as economy of scale by eliminating duplicate sources/positions. Keeping the sweets and dumping the excess over time.

    But it also shows just how large buyouts can be in this sector. While true Pharma and Bio are two separate industries, they are sold over the same counter, in the same stores/pharm.'s !

    CELG has a wonderful pipeline/track record and is a cheaper venture than most other players (of any consequence) in either sector. It holds 5 bil in cash and 5 bil in debt, a wash for a buyer.

    It has moved sideways in a very tight range as the supposed SPLIT vote/announcement is about to take place in June. I could see anything from a 3 x 1, 2 x 1, or even a 3 x 2. Or.....an announcement would not surprise me. What is surprising is that this boring, almost painful trading range we have wittnessed for a couple months now has gone by with no explanation what-so-ever. BIO bulls have been buying the stock and MoMo fear mongers have mislabelled CELG as strictly a MoMo...which, it ain't! IMHO !

    With the obvious SHIFT in DEMOGRAPHICS.......and the money to be made keeping BOOMERS alive, as well as the 10k PER DAY who are retiring to enjoy late life years....it shouldn't surprise anyone if this sector burns rubber for the next decade or two with discovery, revenue, etc., etc.

    Oh AND....the folks behind this pharma/ bio revolution are BOOMERS too! Who want to live many more years! Talk about motivation to create the silver bullet that CURES anything out there.....wow!

    All IMHO of course...and I expect PFE's recent actions are just the near edge of what is coming in this combined sector/ Pharma-Bio !
