If you listen very carefully to the Oppenheimer interview, they get asked if Rayaldee nda was still on schedule to be completed this year. They stated yes but if not shortly after. So it was put out there that it might be by eoy 2014, or very very very early 2015.
So if delayed by a week or two, they stated that. Do not forget, the original NDA date was March, so this is WAY ahead of that.
So most here still anticipate 2014, those that listened to the Oppenheimer call closely figure roughly anytime between now and Jan 16-23. Slight delays on these things are VERY VERY common, and expected.
So as far as hurting or helping share price, my guess is no impact. Now if we head into Feb, and the NDA has not been filed, or an explanation is not given by then, then it might.
The big picture is getting clearer. A week or two is meaningless.
4 blood tests and Claros launch in 2015.
Rayaldee and Rolapitant approval 2015, HGH 2016 with a partner. Hemophilia likely gets partnered in a similar deal to HGH. Rayaldee they do SOLO, but might get an Asian partner, Or buy a small Asian company.
Soon they will have cash to expand pipeline, will take a little more time, but things will speed up with this cash infusion.
The Eskimo understood patience. He would stand starving over a hole in the ice for days spear in hand, and would not dare look away. Failure meant his family starved to death, and so did he. Here we worry about a few pennies up or down. So patience and perspective, Opko will do well, no one will starve owning it. Lobster and cracked crab most likely.
Sad they miss out on that Dec bonus, most robo posters will be gone in a few more months.
You can see the pain by the blank, user ignored lines and how fast they are posting. No DEC bonus, too bad.
Most longs from 2014 are up, 2016 will be a block buster year, we will be up from here during 2015.
Correct, EVERYONE knows it is not recurring, but with that much cash Opko can NOW easily stay eps. positive because this creates that much flexibility. Opko has little debt, but debt free if Frost chooses could add fifteen or so cents to the bottom line. Remember now, this infusion comes just prior to 4 blood tests, claros launch, rayaldee launch, rolapitant launch, all expenses paid by this deal.
opko goes eps. positive in mid 2015, not early 2016, but yes, a one time shot in the arm but a debt free company.
that would be the highest close for 2014
On December 13, 2014, OPKO Health, Inc. (“OPKO”), OPKO Ireland Ltd. (“OPKO Ireland”, and together with OPKO, the “Company”), and Pfizer, Inc
The Company will receive an initial payment of $295 million within fifteen (15) days of closing, a portion of which will be used by OPKO to fund research and development expenses. OPKO is also eligible to receive up to an additional $275 million upon the achievement of certain regulatory milestones.
The transaction is subject to clearance by the U.S. antitrust authorities under the Hart-Scott-Rodino Act and is expected to become final as soon as such clearance has occurred.
Deal still needs be approved by fed, so no cash has changed hands as far as I know. Might not be for a Q or so, but it is coming.
Tylenol, will not help
No more than TWO aspirin, remember it is only money, so you are now broke, you still have your health, but appear to be losing your sanity.
This is a Hsano/Frost stock, Granted only about 1m short, but the robo poster there lost his shirt, socks and shoes, reminds me of our own pets.
Think comparing to isrg not bdsm, or edap. Cover, take two aspirin, never short again.
Maybe after fda approval.
Cover and get over it.
S&H Green Stamps (also called Green Shield Stamps) were trading stamps popular in the United States from the 1930s until the late 1980s. They were distributed as part of a rewards program operated by the Sperry & Hutchinson company (S&H), founded in 1896 by Thomas Sperry and Shelley Byron Hutchinson.
Those younger than 40 might not recognize an S&H Green Stamp if your grocer handed you a book of them.
But during the S&H zenith of the 1960s, thousands of shoppers saved Green Stamps, collecting them from gas stations, grocery stores and other retailers whenever they made a purchase.
Collectors could trade Green Stamps for merchandise at redemption centers. One center resided at the now-closed Bear's Department Store on the square.
S&H made money by selling the stamps to retailers. Stores gained customer loyalty with people returning to build their stash.
Dolores and husband W. Ray Butcher of York Township started saving stamps for Disneyland in the early '60s, after getting a newspaper clipping in the mail from a cousin.
The ad teased a "magic carpet" ride to Disneyland: Green Stamps for "deluxe, 15-ride ticket books." Dolores jumped at the chance.
Just to clarify how they do it is if they want to cover a million shares they sell 250k at open driving the price down a .25, retail goes OH NO I lost 250 bucks, dump dump dump, but total retail dumps 750k shares, the fund covers new short .25 profit, and covers old short at less loss. They still need 250k for the day, but sellers are gone, the nail retail shorts driving it up .35, buying 250k shares in minutes, they have their 250k sell in place make .35, and wait, as it now is obvious buyers are gone, they tap the new high, they cover at a profit again. They can COVER 4-5 million a day like this unless BLIND sided.
