I believe the bank said they didn't buy any shares this quarter. The pullback appears to have been in response to interest rates.
Gotta hurt real bad if he actually has a short position.
Especially with a stock like OPK.
OPK is running on all cylinders. Buyers are flocking in, and shorts are covering. It is a win win situation.
Gruber was the architect of the Romney plan. That is why Obama selected him. Health insurance, like all other insurance plans, only works because the healthy help pay for the people who need care. Gruber apologized for his statements publicly because he acknowledged they were ignorant. Now Medicare is a different story. Very few old people pay more than what they take out of the system for their medical care. Our government will be overwhelmed by the baby boomer health costs that we are beginning to face. How many old guys like Cheney will get heart transplants at hundreds of thousand of dollars at taxpayer expense! If Frank and the conservative tea party brain trust really wants to save the government some money, they should start demanding cuts to Medicare. If the old folks can't pay for their health costs, I guess that's the breaks. Now, I actually want everyone to have affordable healthcare, but I find it convenient how Frank criticizes everything but what benefits him. Oh well, I have some snow to shovel and then some money to make.
The mayor in my town is a Republican. He even cancelled the municipal court hearings scheduled for this Thursday. I am not gullible, if I was, I might actually be influenced by the trash you post. You "try" to make everything about politics, and by doing so, you make yourself look ridiculous. Keep posting though because guys like you help discredit the crazies that populate your tea party brain trust.
I guess Christie has the same agenda as DiBlasio then. However, unlike you, I believe the mayors and governors in the tri-state area just followed the weather forecast and tried to protect their citizens from danger. No politics involved here, just leaders doing their business to the best of their abilities.
Biotechs tend to really take off when momentum starts to build. Dr. Frost must be very happy as his continued buying has made him a fortune.
Looks like Opk is determined to push higher. With this stock's momentum, I plan on holding my shares for a very long time. I am up around 40% on my present holdings, and I profited from what I sold a couple of weeks earlier. The real good news is still in the future, so this thing could really take off. I am curious what the short interest is currently. I would expect that a lot of covering took place. If not, a big short squeeze could be coming. IMHO.
I bought a chunk of OPK in the low $8's. I don't plan on selling it until Frost sells the company like he has done a few times before. A relative of mine was a big deal in a major pharma that bought one of Frost's companies years back. He told me that Frost was the type of guy who didn't mess around with his money. I consequently have been investing with Frost for quite some time. I have bought and sold before, but my present shares will be held long term. They probably are free and clear by now anyway.
You have to be kidding me. The CEO of French SNY came out and said on national TV that the US taxpayers are funding the world's drug research. He said the rest of the world would sit back and allow the US to be stupid as long as it wanted to be. ALL OTHER MAJOR COUNTRIES have price controls, so they all pay less than we do. We even pay a premium for pet medications. I recently bought dog medications from a British company, and I got a cheaper price than my vet can get wholesale here. If you want to mislead or deceive, try to do it with some factual information.
I think shorts are getting nervous and are beginning to scramble to cover. I don't expect a quick deal by Frost though because I think he wants to at least double the share price before he starts looking to sell the company. We shall see. Good luck!
Carl's son is on the board, so I think the son will reflect his dad's wishes without any legal issues. Icahn has never been one to hide his opinions, so I think he will be able to give his opinion without any hassle. Besides, since the stock price would soar, who would file lawsuits - shorts? Shorts have no legal standing since they are not shareholders. Nuan is showing a little early strength despite the market's weakness, so someone is in there buying. IMHO. Good luck.
How could anyone be so stupid as to short OPK with Frost's buying and the company's prospects! I am holding tight because this stock appears headed for a super run in the coming months and years.
I expect we will be hearing some news from Carl in the coming days. He is not going to take a big loss on his NUAN holdings without a fight. All he has to do is say that he wants the company to evaluate its strategic options and he will make most if not all of his money back. Good luck!
Warren is right in the sense that the US funds the drug development costs of the whole world because we are the only nation that does not have price controls on prescription drugs. One of the top guys at SNY said a while back on CNBC that the US government was foolishly letting its people bear this burden. When asked what would happen if the US initiated price controls, the SNY rep. said the rest of the world would have to pay its fair share. I agree that Warren will not be president, but her views will most likely help shape the Democratic party platform to some degree.
Hey, our government may not be able to impose price controls on prescription drugs, except for the VA, but Express Scripts seems to be doing a pretty good job of it by themselves.
