It cost over one billion dollars to bring a drug to approval. Ten years and a 93% chance it won't get approved. So when you say the companies are charging too much have your liberal nut bags cute he drug companies fees and they will stop trying to cure you or your family member of a dibiliting disease
Hilary is a liar and a spin doctor
She's never been in business. So she has given the doctors and hospitals free reins to charge more money. They can tell the insurance companies these are our rates take it or leave it.. And guess what the insurance companies will have to play the doctors games but just raise there rates. Combine the insurance companies and they give the doctors and hospitals no choice but to play by there rules lower your feesdoc o more million dollar salaries that will result in lower insurance rates. Democrates are blue collar workers and don't understand how business works
Financial firms that have lax cybersecurity practices can expect a crackdown from regulators, the head of the Securities and Exchange Commission’s enforcement unit said Friday.
“If firms don’t have appropriate policies and procedures in place, that could be a [regulation S-P] violation,” the director of the SEC’s Division of Enforcement, Andrew Ceresney said, referring to a rule that requires financial institutions to protect customer information.
After Scottrade, 5 things to know about the safety of your investments
The warning from the regulator five months after the SEC released results from a cybersecurity survey of 57 registered broker-dealers and 49 investment advisers, which sought to gauge whether firms are prepared against cyber criminals and what risks they may face. It found that 88% of broker-dealers and 74% of advisers have experienced cyber attacks, either directly or through a vendor. The Financial Industry Regulatory Authority, Wall Street’s self-regulator, conducted a similar survey, and both have since issued guidance as to how firms should best handle growing cyber threats.
Most brokers and advisers don’t guarantee your money back after a hack attack
Last month, the agency charged a St.Louis-based investment adviser last month for failing to follow adequate security practices like encrypting client information, assessing its risks and developing a response plan for after hacks. It fined R.T. Jones Capital Equities Management $75,000. The case was considered among the first against a firm for cybersecurity issues. Consequences of a case can vary, from fines to cease and desist orders, suspension or revocation of broker-dealer and investment adviser registrations, censures bars from association with the securities industry and other penalties.
Earlier this month, the brokerage Scottrade said

The second stock I want to tell you about is Sucampo Pharmaceuticals (SCMP). It's a little-known biopharmaceutical, only four analysts are following it, but it has explosive potential. The company is focused on the research and development of proprietary drugs to treat gastrointestinal, neurologic, ophthalmic and oncology-based inflammatory disorders. Its leading treatment is AMITIZA, which is used to treat chronic idiopathic constipation, irritable bowel syndrome and opioid-induced constipation.
Recently, the company received Fast Track Designation from the FDA for cobiprostone, a treatment used to prevent oral mucositis. This is great news, as Fast Track Designation expedites the development and review of treatments for serious conditions. And the FDA also accepted an Investigational New Drug application for a phase II clinical trial of cobiprostone.
In the first quarter, Sucampo Pharmaceuticals' earnings surged a stunning 700% year-over-year, while sales increased 33%. The second quarter is lining up to be just as impressive: Analysts are looking for earnings of $0.16 per share on $31.85 million in sales, which translates to 300% annual earnings growth and 32% annual sales growth.
Given the strength of its sales and earnings growth, SCMP earns an A fundamental grade and an A quantitative grade. It receives A ratings for sales growth, operating margin growth, earnings growth, earnings momentum, analyst earnings revisions and return on equity. Earnings surprises earns a C rating, while cash flow gets a B rating. Overall, SCMP is an A-rated Strong Buy.
With a PEG of only .70 and earnings of 9 dollars per share with a market cap on only 10 billion and doing business in another county with all the recent buyouts and a blockbuster drug with 30 on the way to the FDA this will get bought for over 200 a share
Anything below 1.00 Some things to ponder
Here are a few more interesting tidbits from my study:
92% of companies with PEG ratios of less than 1 beat the market over three years.
68% of companies with PEG ratios of between 1 and 2 beat the market.
47% of companies with PEG ratios greater than 2 beat the market.
The best performer was (surprise, surprise) Hansen Natural (Nasdaq: HANS ) . It had a PEG of 0.08 in 2003 and had gained 5,400% through March.
The second-best performer was NutriSystem (Nasdaq: NTRI ) with a PEG of 0.06 and a gain of 5,200%.
Despite a PEG of 0.55, Ford (NYSE: F ) managed only a 14% gain over three years.
#$%$ Sporting Goods (NYSE: DKS ) was "fairly valued" with a PEG of exactly 1, but it still appreciated by 265%.
A PEG of 8 didn't stop Select Comfort (Nasdaq: SCSS ) from appreciating by 266%.
Canaccord Genuity took the other route, raising its price target to $150 from $145 based on higher market share for the iPhone 6.

A source familiar with the matter told Benzinga Tuesday that Mallinckrodt PLC (NYSE: MNK) was in talks to acquire Insys Therapeutics Inc(NASDAQ: INSY) in a transaction valuing shares at around $65.
Shares of Insys were trading higher by more than 6 percent Wednesday.
Speaking to Benzinga on Wednesday, Oppenheimer analyst Akiva Felt said that progression of rumor between the two companies is "still stagnant," but he added that it "fits into" Mallinckrodt's strategy.
The analyst also added that he "doesn't know why it would be more likely now versus four months ago."
Finally, when asked if a consolidation is expected between large biotech companies and smaller cannabis companies, Felt suggested that analysts are "talking down" on M&A chatter of that magnitude.

Qihoo 360 Technology (QIHU) reported strong growth last quarter that came above the analysts’ consensus. This was driven by solid performance in its online advertising and internet game sales. Moreover, the management has projected a better than expected guidance for the fourth quarter. Interestingly, the company has not only surpassed the analyst’s expectations but even exceeded its own estimates on various metrics. Although the stock is currently at its 52-week low but we have some strong numbers to back on and a promising outlook ahead.
Strong expectations for the future
Qihoo’s high expectations can be justified by its strategic moves to strengthen its business. During the quarter, it completed the integration of Media V, which will bolster its tepid advertising performance. Media V has vast experience in digital advertising platform and data analysis along with a huge advertiser base. While talking to Global times, Qihoo’s Senior Vice President Yu Guangdong said “For Qihoo 360, cooperation with Media V could improve our advertising business and build more ad connections so as to upgrade our ability to generate more revenue through advertising.”
