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.
I am not the answer man. But shorts just do leave. Retail shorts bail fairly fast, but funds with a billion or so at their disposal, simply short more, just as long funds buy more. When the tipping point gets reached, one or the other runs. What has worked for a few months for the funds is cover at low 8's, short in the 9's, take the cash buy gild, etc., a paired trade. TIME is running out on that play, not 100% positive they can be nudged out, but the writing is getting burned into the wall.
The problem they have is NO shares to cover with, they will short more, cover some, hoping retail, THEIR SAVIOR, sells. Today they ran it down hoping tons of retail would sell, some did, not enough. They ran it up hoping to get enough profit takers to cover a little, not enough sold. They are in a pickle, know it, and will manipulate to cover, as today's action showed. It will take only one big house upgrading to spike this puppy a couple of bucks, a GS, C, etc., I expect it, but could be wrong.
We have 2016 as a time frame, their's is no different. They have played this like a fiddle for months, as the float dwindled, the rope is indeed short.
So your question is who is doing all the selling? It is likely the same fund doing all the BUYING. They can do that. Ever buy a secondary at x, to be completed in three days. Ever notice the secondary is within pennies of the X price about 95% of the time, we have no control, funds can move a stock within a dime of their target unless opposed buy a big buyer or seller they did not see, and only after their funds are used up TEMPORARILY.
I saw Anne Opko first, you can eye her cousin Calamity opko, if you like, or maybe Katie Elder opko but Anne Opko is spoken for. SSHHH, it is a secret.
Waiting on that one big broker, GS, JPM, MER, C to upgrade with an 18 price target, lol. could happen sooner than later.
Thanks you too, and your family. My take is EVERYTHING at opko is unfolding as Frost laid it out. Not sure on 4k, but hope getting in guidelines gives it a boost in sales. NDA Rayaldee in under 2 weeks, 4k Latin America also. My price target is still a meager 30 by end of 2016.
It based for 6 straight months, time to get in a new range, if you did not buy in the 8's, you could easily miss the 9's if you wait too long.
before going public.
Frost has take longer breaks from buying, and then resumed with no news being released. True, the stock tends to go up during those dry periods, shorts do look over their shoulder at those times. The majority of the shorts will find NO shares to cover with, matter of when, not if that happens. Why you think they have resident paid bashers? It is known where the shares are. Frost owns X, funds own X, Retail is their only hope, but the shortage of shares to cover is 20 million or in that range. So in time, we get a squeeze based on 20-25 million with no sellers.
Well when did you think opk would be profitable? Obviously this BIG BIG cash infusion will close, but might not be accounted for as the .63 earnings it really is. My timeline has been 2016, based on Rayaldee 2015, and Rolipitant 2015 approval. 2016 will be great, 2017 MONSTER year IMHO. NO DOUBT opk will have over 2b in 2017.
Total sales 3b, excuse me, 1.5b each companies share of the pie. 1.5 To Opko, 1.5 to pfe.
pfe WITH many many pharmacies selling Genotropin the drug generated Genotropin generated for us at pfe " revenues of $772 million in 2013." If we partner with OPKO, eliminating Novo, and all the competition because we have the best drug out there, we and Opko can do roughly 1.5 BILLION in sales year one, and grow from there.
