The savage drop in the bio-tech sector makes a lot of these companies screaming buys or extremely risky. How about concentrating on what is getting punished unnecessarily and those that we should avoid. I presently only hold OPK, CEMP, and PFE, but I have owned CLDX, GALE, TTPH, NWBO, MDRX, ALKS, PBTH, and many others. I like OPK because they have a couple of late stage promising drugs, and Dr. Frost buys thousands of shares every week. CEMP is in the antibiotic sector, and I believe they are expected to get some very important results in the next couple of weeks.
I have stopped responding to all the political #$%$ because nobody here is changing anyone's minds by their postings, so it is just a waste of time. Based on all the negative ratings most of the political wizards like Whip, Frank, and Rays get, I believe they are hurting their "causes" more than they are helping.
Good luck with your investing. I may buy more OPK and CEMP, but I may wait a little to see how long this drop is going to continue.
The whole sector is getting hammered. TTPH, CEMP, etc. are all getting hit hard on no news. Just market manipulation at its worst. If you believe in their pipelines, these dips can be nice buying opportunities if you have the stomach for biotechs.
I don't believe the president has anything against people working hard or investing smart and being financially successful. I am proud of what I have achieved, but I know I didn't do it all on my own. Good parents and teachers got me started in the right direction and made me value an education and a solid work ethic. A couple of bosses saw potential in me and gave me the chance to do my thing. My faith in God inspired me with the wisdom and knowledge that all good things come from Him, and that I should be willing to give something back. If you are a Christian, helping the less fortunate is one of the tenets of our faith. Sometimes the very wealthy forget that they had people who helped them along the way. Sometimes the very wealthy believe that people who have a tough times somehow deserve it. I don't want this to sound like a sermon, but I feel very good when I can give back and help someone out.
Totally agree. I bought a few more shares about a buck ago, so now I plan on holding for now.
I consider myself middle class even though my investments of late probably put me somewhat higher. I know many people who made much more than me, but my ability to invest and save has multiplied my earnings nicely. Even though I have done well, I know that I caught some breaks and the good Lord has blessed me and my family in many ways. I try to give back to our churches and the less fortunate. Many good, hard working people I know have not fared as well because of health problems and employment issues. Our economy improved in part because of President Obama's stewardship, but economic conditions often improve or worsen totally beyond the president's control. I sincerely believe that most presidents do the best they can, but for some reason, politics has turned way too personal the last couple of decades.
I retired early and I could still be working if I wanted. But, hey, why should I work for someone else when I am cleaning up in the stock market! I guess I would statistically show up as someone who could still be working, but like Frank, I find working for myself to be much nicer and more rewarding. 6.1% unemployment is a big improvement, but it is true that companies have gone to part-timers and out-sourcing. They would be doing that no matter who was president. My employer started outsourcing as much as possible back in the 1990's. If people are so disappointed in Obama, they should just check what was going on in employment, the stock market, the real estate market, and their financial holdings when he came into office. My house is worth more, and my investments have skyrocketed, and I am making more $ even though I stopped working for someone else.
You and Donald Trump are the only two twerps who haven't seen the birth certificate. Move on to something of substance, preferably about PFE!
Nice article out of Australia pointing out how Cemp's antibiotic can be a valuable tool in dealing with pre-term birth issues that could not be treated before.
have to provide something they find religiously objectionable to their employees. My wife needed a serious surgery years ago. It was before the Hippa Laws went into effect. Her surgeon, a renowned specialist in NY, was trying to find out when he would be available to perform my wife's surgery. He told us to sit in his office for a few minutes while he made a call. He was seeing a young girl who had a cancerous tumor in her leg. He told her parents he could remove the tumor and save her life, but he needed their permission to be able to give her a blood transfusion if he had to. He told her parents he would do everything possible to not use a transfusion. The parents refused and he told them that he could not help their daughter then. He scheduled my wife in the young girl's slot, and my wife survived and has been fine for many years. I suspect the young girl died a painful death within a short time because her parents' religious beliefs would not allow the doctor to use a blood transfusion as a last ditch effort to save her life. Now, if these people owned a business, would they really want to pay for blood transfusions for others when their religious beliefs would not even allow themselves to use a transfusion to save their daughter's life. Interesting point which the SC may have to consider if some of these religious groups that are strict adherents to the Bible decide to press their point.
The Supreme Court has ruled that a company does not have to violate its religious beliefs when it comes for the healthcare it provides its workers. I guess blood transfusions could be off the table if you work for Watchtower Publications. Now, since I don't believe the court could discriminate against any religious beliefs, I guess we could have bans on circumcisions, and even operations and medicines when it comes to Christian Scientists. Good thing the Affordable Healthcare Bill allows for reasonably priced health insurance. This ones for you, Frank. Back to watching the Germany/Algeria match. I am 3/4 German, but I have to give the Algerians credit for a great effort!
I know you feel compelled to impart your wisdom to us concerning ever situation that can somehow be turned into a sinister plot by you, but please give us and yourself a break. If we want, we can watch Fox News for a few minutes and get your whole stick for the day. The Fox pundits get paid well for their musings, but I can't figure why such a self-proclaimed smart guy like you would spend most of your weekdays behind your computer posting this nonsense for nothing. Get out and enjoy life a little. Then again, I can picture you on your death bed thinking, boy, I wish I could have put up just one more political post before I died. Oh well, I doubt my advice will have any positive affect. Have a great weekend. I am off to the Y to swim a few laps.
I added a few more shares today after reading some of the trial results on CEMP's website. It appears their antibiotics are safe and effective so far. With drug resistant bacteria/infections increasing all the time, CEMP appears to be in a sweet spot for approval in the coming months. IMHO.
Frost want to make money. He has proven time after time that he knows how to do it. His continued buying of OPK shares show he is convinced that OPK is a great investment long term. I have no trouble waiting and buying as long as the prospects continue to look good and Frost keeps buying.
Your prediction is looking good. CEMP is recovering. I expect it will continue to do so as we near the latest trial results. If things look good, CEMP should move up nicely. It would also make CEMP very attractive as an acquisition. IMHO.
Frost seems to have been buying shares a few times each week in large quantities. He must believe that the share price is very attractive. Since he and his buddies appear to already have control over the company, it is entirely in his power to move the stock if he chooses to. Imagine what would happen if he announced that Opk was exploring its strategic options which could include a sale. I bet the stock price would easily surpass the $10 level on that announcement alone. With such a large short position, I expect the reaction would be quite sweet for us longs. Buying more on any dips! IMHO.
Frank, there you go again. Anyone who disagrees with you elicits a response with words like libs, commies, fruitloop, chicken shi ite, etc. You are a joke. When you can't intellectually refute the facts you start throwing stereotypes around from your many years on this planet. Get over your twisted, prejudiced thinking and try to deal with real issues and points of view. Your twisted verbiage reminds me of the type of hatred that came out of #$%$ Germany. You also don't seem to even notice the many contradictions your statements have indicated. Let me see. You wanted Obama to help the rebels against Syria. Now you want Obama to help the Shiites against the Sunni rebels. If Obama did what you wanted, that would now put us on the same side as Iran (who you wanted to bomb) and Syria. It is easy to have a big mouth when your talk has no impact but to contribute to global warming. If your actually had any authority to enact your proclamations we would be in deep trouble. Have a great day.
I agree. I plan on adding to my position on any dips. My brother-in-law worked for a large pharma before he retired. He had the opportunity to get to know Dr. Frost when they were working on an acquisition. He was very impressed with his knowledge and savvy. When I told him I had bought shares in a company that Frost was in control of, he told me that he felt Frost was the real deal. We shall see! As long as Frost keeps buying hundreds of thousands of shares a month, I have no problem following along for the ride.
It sure does seem like an over reaction. Mongolia appears to be making it very difficult for companies to operate within their borders. Hopefully the two sides will come together because they both will benefit by getting this mine operating at full tilt.
