geez, for a company that might have good data to push the stock to 17-20 in February, I can't believe the selloff and nobody is buying. #$%$ ?????
man, only biotech down 8% today. What gives? as if they know the data is bad. why would anyone sell that much if the data were like PhIIa and we hit 15 plus on the news? I give up. somebody is screwing us.
I need to call my relative and ask them to hurry the heck up. this is getting painful watching it drop. I agree the IBB is dropping and the market is but geez, if the news is good, we see 20's and they're selling. I can see it not going up yet but don't dump like it's going to hit 2.
anything can happen. usually when a buyout occurs, new hires is the last thing that's done. most companies take all IP and take things over. If they leave it as a free standing subsidiary (like MRK did of symbia in California), they do bring in a few key people to run things. Why would JNJ buyout ACHN if they have control of the HCV drugs??? they milk them for all it's worth. ACHN might just get 15-20% royalty and JNJ the rest. That gives ACHN money and time to get something else on the market. If the drug is good and JNJ doesn't want to pay all those royalties, they buyout the firm and either transfer people or lay them off. Let's just get great data out and go from there 1st.
you're getting me excited. I'll take 10 plus but 20 plus is awesome. I do remember watching ACHN hit 21 or so on the last news but only hit 16 plus in reg hours. Would you expect morning release? or after hours?? the thing is (from my old company), once the new firm (JNJ in this case) has control, they dictate when, how, what etc is said. So not sure when JNJ does their news. I'd hate during the market is open. I'd rather premarket or 4pm or so. beggars can't be choosers.
not by much but guess it's due to a good up day and people expect the news to continue. what gets me is the day the dow/nas was hugely red, aria was the only green stock on my screen. someone was buying. News coming? or just buying the low price???
so we have to hold/wait till end of march/early april before we have a chance to go over 7 again? Man, my timing is always off. I go in oil and get crushed. Sell gold and it goes through the roof. Go in pharma and the candidates kill the biotechs. I can't catch a break. I need to make some losses up and get moving again. Just want to be in achn and see the ticker go across the screen in the morning at 17 or higher.
right now oil producers are pumping 100MM barrels a day at say 30 a barrel for 3B in sales a day. why don't they just pump 75mm barrels a day and say oil goes to 120 a barrel, that's 9B in sales. so they lose some share to the shale guys. but they are getting 3X in sales for less product. what is Saudi Arabia have for brains?? sheet?????
I just looked at my 1099's and they list DO's dividends as non-dividend distributions. I'll have to ask why cause I thought DO paid a dividend. Now the extra 50 cents that they canned long time ago might have been a non-dividend distribution but the 12.5 cents per share was a divvy.
hope it holds till tomorrow. I wanted to free up some cash and average down from 5.50 but might not get my chance tomorrow
where did you get paid pumper sheet from? geez, I'm long and waiting for data. we got some fast volume but it faded later in the day.
give aapl one more try. if they don't comply, then shut every facility down in the USA for 3 months and don't let any sales in the USA for a year. Play hardball with the CEO.
I wonder how much of it is that the nas and dow both went up like 5% in two days. I'd like 8 by end of feb but want 17-25 if possible. I have a lot in ARIA and wish I can get that out to add more here but I"m under water on both now.
that's about 37 a share. yikes. Which is cheaper? royalties through the patent or BO?? guess they'll figure that out. Also, like you said, if BO, they get to keep royalties and all the other drugs/pipeline. I wish my other holding would pop but I'm a buck down there and not sure putting all cash into ACHN is smart. But if it popped to 16 plus, I'd be golden. Something is up as it rose good today.
wow, I remember in 1999, I bought 25,000 shares of LU at an average near 59ish. They said the telecom build out was in the 2nd inning. That was my whole IRA that it took 20 years to gain in big pharma 401K (and some gains in the market after moving to an ira from401k). Fast forward to 2000 and the crash and I sold LU for $0.50 per share. I lost all of that and most of my 2nd 401K now in oil. Wish I never got out of the 401K's and kept them where they were. Ugh.
