Either I am brilliant or I am very brilliant of course!
It is ridiculous to compare Icahn with Paulson. Everyone knows that Icahn moves stocks. Not so with Paulson, who is a relative unknown in the hedge fund world. I certainly had never heard of him. Everyone has heard of Icahn though.
Environmentalists?? I thought this company has technology to process coal, isn't that the case? So what's great about that?
It has happened in the past. The stock jumps up for a day, and then resumes its inevitable downward trend to lower lows. Fact is, there is no future for this stock. That is why it is still a penny stock.
Isn't anyone else concerned that a stock with so much promise is languishing around $1 without any coverage, publicity, ratings...How is that that Wall Street seems to be missing completely missing the potential on this one?
Looks like a good start. Hopefully the conference call following the earnings announcement will have more details on where surgeries are already being done/have been done, and what the interest levels have been so far. I assume all the centers on the list are ones with experience doing bariatric surgeries? (Obviously the VBLOC surgery is simpler/quicker and except for the small incision to insert the device, there is no cutting or stitching of body parts inside).
I am still amazed this has not hit the mainstream media, and it seems the word is very slow to get out. FDA approval obviously means that they decided it works based on the clinical trials. The choice then, between bariatric surgery and VBLOC, is really a no-brainer.
Or it may be that they finally announce the need for financing and announce the secondary offering some people expect? The only question then would be ...at what price?
I would not interpret the silence/lack of news to mean they are hiding some fantastic news, just waiting to announce it. If there was good news hidden, the price action would have told us by now.
Did someone say Carl Icahn owns a lot of NFLX? Must be because he is smart - which is why he is rich, from owning NFLX stock!
Just a little profit-taking before the next run-up to 700, 900, 1500. This is the pause that refreshes. I will buy heavily on any small pullback. Buying on the dips is a sure way to make money.
And diversification is overrated. When you have a great stock like NFLX, that's the only stock you need.
Actually NFLX can buy anyone they want...maybe Disney, Comcast, Time Warner...maybe even DISH, Verizon. They can use their fast appreciating stock as currency to do just about any deal. But really, they may just want to go it alone and build a big empire without any acquisitions. There is so much organic growth, and so much of it yet to come....this stock can easily surpass Apple in market cap in a couple of years. The 900 price target is just a beginning.
If that happens, the stock could double right away! Pity the shorts.
NFLX may close over 600 today. Target is 900 but that is conservative. In a market where growth is tough to find, this is one of the few growth stories. No wonder everyone wants to be in the stock. My target for next year is 2000.
620 is very conservative - that is just 10% above current levels. With the new high, there is zero resistance for a big move higher. Expect 900-1000 soon, and 2000 (or 200 after the 10:1 split I expect) later this year.
as the best analysts are saying, the stock can easily double or quadruple from here in a very short time. This is the next Apple - it is stupid to bet against this great company with superb management. I expect there will be a 10:1 split soon, and post-split, the stock will run to $200, implying a nearly 4x rise from current levels.
Shorts are getting killed by this great stock. Once the split happens, the remaining shorts will get killed as well.
No idea about target price and such, but product/company success depends on whether insurance will pay. If insurance pays now for bariatric surgery, VBLOC should get approval easily as well. The FDA approval was a no-brainer; it works, it is less invasive and is safer with fewer side-effects compared to alternatives. It is also easily reversible and adjustable.
Near term success also depends on how they manage their finances and financing.
Huh? You sold today so you would have $ to purchase more at a higher price? Are you related to that stupid_american_investor poster?
Sorry to burst everyone's bubble, but it could also be plain manipulation - happens all the time.
