If you just followed the insiders (Nader, Beshar, Stratemeier) and bought shares when they bought tens of thousands of shares on the open market at $5.36 in November 2011 you would be looking at over a 750% gain in less than 3 1/2 years. Not too shabby. Definitely would pay for your kids college or early retirement in the cheaper parts of the country. There's really only one reason they would do this since they already receive tens of thousands of options as part of their compensation. I would like to think they were trying to tell the little guy this was the time to buy.
Was just wondering. I still have my shares. Dr. Nader seems confident in interview with Jim Cramer that Natpara will be approved. Perhaps another bidder will come along. I've seen it happen before.
Gotta love Leggie. I bought this stock in the low teens inside my Roth IRA when the insiders bought on the open market a few years ago. I figured they would know best when the stock was on sale. It appears they were right on the mark. The commission for buying the stock was $5 and I have it in DRIP so the dividends go toward buying even more stock. Beats paying fees to mutual funds whose overpaid managers can't even beat the SP500. And since it's in a Roth, Uncle Sam isn't getting a cent when I sell (if I ever do).
I did the same thing. It's been a great investment. I like these under the radar, well-run companies that pay a nice dividend. And the rise in share price isn't too shabby either. Don't tell anybody about it.
NPSP can't seem to pick up any upward momentum. No real news until the NATPARA advisory committee date. That seems to be the only big catalyst coming up any time soon.
Now up 679% since insiders bought on open market in Nov 2011.
Dr. Nader bought 30K shares for approx $161K in Nov 2011. Those shares are now worth approx $1.09M in a little more than 2 years. Not too shabby. Warren Buffett would be proud.
I was a little shocked by the cost of Gattex. I hope NPSP doesn't price themselves out of the US market. It may be a whole lot cheaper to go overseas to get the drug. Does insurance actually pay this......no wonder the US health care system is in turmoil.
"All of a sudden this comes out."
No offense but where have you been? The cancer cases are very old news. Does anyone actually research a company before they buy or short it's stock anymore?
