  • I guess some guys just love attention, and they don't care whether it is good or bad. Between all your contradictory stock claims and your bigoted views on society and politics, you have managed to rack up more negative ratings than anyone on any message board I visit. Give it a rest and do yourself a favor, us too!

    We have all kinds of screwballs who are capable of doing terrible things to hurt as many people as they can. Radical Muslims for sure, but we also have a wide variety of domestic terrorists including anti-government types who are also capable of such tactics. The domestic types are harder to anticipate because they often blend in with the rest of us before they attack a school, police, gov. building, etc. Considering how free our society is and how easily it is to obtain high powered weapons and bomb making materials, it is remarkable that nobody has blown up a bridge or a tunnel. Thank God!

  • The guy is certainly a "professional" buyer. He ain't no "amateur."

    Frost is certainly a professional with a proven record as a doctor, scientist, investor, and developer of fantastic corporations. Betting against somebody like Frost might be a mistake an amateur might make. Lets place our bets and see what happens. I have been adding shares, and I am quite comfortable in going along for the ride with Dr. Frost. He didn't become a billionaire for nothing.

  • Frost's buying is steady and strong.

    I personally like KC. They haven't won in long time, and they won four straight to get this far. I have liked the O's in the past, but I am a Yankee fan, and I didn't like the fact that the O's plunked the Yankee batters so many times this year. I suffered a serious head injury playing ball in HS and was hospitalized for a week. I don't respect pitchers who deliberately throw at batters especially in areas that can cause serious injuries. A decent pitcher ought to be able to brush a batter back without risking serious injury to someone's life and livelihood.

  • Frank, I haven't heard you screaming about this pandemic. I guess because it has been affecting mainly children, and you are 50 or 60 years away from that. Ebola is certainly a world threat, but our country is trying to take every precaution it can now that it fully understands the threat. Enterovirus has been found in just about every state. A couple of youngsters died in our area, and their schools have had to be evacuated and disinfected. Based on how viruses spread in schools and day care centers, this virus may causes tragic consequences, and the cold season is just starting. Somehow, Frank, I believe if you could find a bio-tech that was working on a cure for this virus and you bought the stock on the cheap, then you would be on the message board warning of this potentially devastating pandemic and pumping the heck out of your stock.

    I guess it just shows that all kinds of people can be liars when it suits their needs.

    My neighbor works in the gold industry. We often talk about the value of gold. He predicted the tumble of gold, and he tells me he sees no reason for a rebound any time soon. He could be wrong, but since he buys and sells gold on a daily basis for his livelihood, I will defer to his judgment. I do own a couple of thousand shares in TRQ which is a Mongolian based mine which has Rio Tinto as one of its major shareholders. The stock price is depressed because of a dispute with the Mongolian government over taxes and future development. The government owns about 1/3 of the mine, so I believe the matter will be settled very soon. If you want exposure to gold, TRQ gives you that plus a big upside when/if their government issues get settled. The mine reportedly is sitting on top of some really dramatic amounts of gold and other valuable metals. IMHO.

    I like the O's because they are a small market team which doesn't spend a lot of money, but being an O fan the last few years has been pretty dismal. KC is another team I would like to see do well.

  • Soros owns a pretty big chunk too. Keep on shorting at your own risk!

    You guys are such simpletons. To change the way IRA's are taxed would require that Congress change the tax laws. Right now members of Congress are lucky if they can change their own underwear. Oh and, Frank, you know all those gigantic gains you claim in your IRA's, most of the people on this board think your success is a figment of your own imagination. That feeling is bolstered by the many posts you have made concerning your own stated trades.

    Hey, Cheney avoided serving his country by getting something like six deferments because he had better things to do. Bush went absent from his National Guard duty, which he probably got by favoritism, and he never fulfilled his full stint. Boehner was in the Navy for a couple of weeks before a "back injury" made him "unable" to fulfill his term of duty. The nature of his mysterious back injury to my knowledge has never been released, but it still hasn't stopped Boehner from setting a record for the number of golf rounds played per year by a sitting Speaker of the House, or any member of Congress for that matter. It also hasn't stopped Boehner from calling for American boots on the ground, but of course, it won't be his boots or golf shoes for that matter. Since Boehner has led a Congress which has produced the least amount of legislation of all time, maybe he could spend some of his free time sharing his back healing secrets with Tiger Woods.

  • so am I. OPK drops down to the low $8's, but it has a lot of support there. I believe I saw at least one upgrade this week, and the future looks very promising. Shorts need to break OPK below $8 to make their risk worthwhile. I believe that OPK is one announcement away from double digits, and the large short float should make the move strong and very painful for shorts. OPK has the greatest insider buying that I have ever seen. If Frost's name was Icahn, this stock would be much higher. Ironically, in my mind, Dr. Frost is a much more credible individual than the corporate raider, Icahn.

    "We are all dead..." Really, Fraz, are you that miss informed and that frightened? You were much more at risk from polio when you were a little boy playing baseball with the one black youngster in your town back in the 1950's. It is true we need better screening tactics to keep infected and exposed people from entering our country, but our medical capabilities are quite able of keeping Ebola from becoming a major problem here. A spokesperson for a company doing Ebola research said his company will only be profitable if countries like the US stockpile major amounts of their vaccine. Since their drug is only in stage one testing, they have a long way to go. Their vaccine is based on DNA rather than a weakened or dead virus, so they probably would stand a better chance of getting an emergency approval if your predictions of Armageddon proves true.

    Just Put 500 More Shares

    Fraz's own posts convict him of his folly in loading up on CLDX as it dropped big time. But then, he will say how his shares are free and clear. Well, even if he bought some shares on the cheap years ago, his own reports of continued buying all the way down here has to make a rational investor chuckle at his comments.

    You make a great point. When insiders aren't buying when the price is cheap, that tells me something about their confidence in the company and its pipeline. That's one reason that I like OPKO. Dr. Frost has been buying in the neighborhood of a couple of hundred thousand shares each week. As long as he keeps buying, I have confidence that OPKO has a bright future.

    Not looking so good right now. Maybe you should try another 500.

    I loved Cldx in the early days, but I have been troubled by its performance this past year. The massive run-up seemed highly speculative to me, and the subsequent crash has to be a concern for investors. Buying on the dips from the high $30 has been a very costly strategy. Even though there is a lot of hype on this board, I just don't see Cldx getting a drug approved any time soon.

  • Man, that is only a little higher than it is trading now. I was thinking about buying the dip, but I think the dip will get dippier the next couple of days. IMHO.
