If there was no bailout, Trump apparently would have gone belly up! I guess he just took advantage of the system. LOL
This week's Barron's reported that BMY charges Americans $150K for Opdivo while it only charges Europeans $100K. Hmmm! Wait until someone brings this to the Donald's attention. He has blamed immigrants and the Chinese for ripping off America. I get the feeling that drug companies will be next on his list. Now this is a topic I think I will agree with Trump on!
Trump inherited $200 million from his dad. In 1990, Trump's holdings reportedly said it was $5 billion in debt due to excessive leveraging. 70 banks agreed to defer almost a billion in debt to allow Trump to take 2nd and 3rd mortgages on his properties averting bankruptcy. In other words, Fraz, Trump got BAILED out. Seems like he got one of those sweet deals you have criticized the government for giving after GW ran our economy to the brink of collapse.
Pretty sad when the likes of Trump get defended and the Pope gets attacked. I talked to an old priest many years back about the problems the Catholic Church was having concerning the sex scandals. He told me sometimes things have to get worse before they get better. I think that is the case with Trump and his new found popularity with the American electorate. Trump has no substance, he is just a curiosity because people want to see what outrageous thing he will say or do next. If he gets elected president, and I seriously doubt it, then our country deserves the likes of him. I can just imagine the effect he will have throughout the rest of the world when he starts insulting world leaders. Hey, you tee pee guys will have to make a decision between your love of Trump and your love of Putin. LOL.
He doesn't talk politics. He just says we should love and care for our brothers and sisters. Sound familiar depeb? Probably not.
Anyone who insults the Pope for political reasons is slime. I guess rumble would call Jesus a commie or Marxist too.
I luv it that you guys continue to defend this guy no matter how stupid he acts or what stupid things he says.
The Donald is making Homer Simpson look like a brain surgeon.
My $200 reference was a per person cost. Obviously, it would cost thousands per person to find, detain, litigate, and then deport each of the 11 million immigrants. By the way, only slightly more than 50% of these unauthorized immigrants are from Mexico. The rest come from around the world, so sending them home would not just be a cheap bus ride across the border.
Hey, I am not a Hillary fan. Her email thing was stupid, especially when she had thoughts of running for president. Colin Powell reportedly also used private emails when he was Sec. of State, so I really doubt there is anything criminal here, but she still was stupid, especially using a private server. I would like to see Andrew Cuomo run for the Dems. as he is a strong personality with a proven track record as governor of NY. I don't think he is interested though. I like Biden, but he has a tendency to say something stupid now and then, but Trump has proven that saying stupid things is not a deterrent to winning a nomination. For the life of me I just can't believe you guys could seriously consider Trump. For instance, he wants to deport all illegal immigrants; over 11 million people. If it cost just $200 to round them up, detain them, and then send them home, it would cost over $2 billion dollars. The real cost would probably be in the tens to hundreds of billions. Where will Trump get this money? These immigrants make up over 5% of our workforce. Since they work for the lowest wages doing the hardest jobs that most Americans chose not to do, mass deportations would cause real labor shortages in our country. The Donald talks big and appeals to peoples' prejudices, but his plan is simplistic at best. His depiction of Sen. McCain as a loser for being captured eliminated Trump from getting my vote.
I get email alerts from the company. So glad to see the good doctor back in there buying. I love OPKO's prospects, and Frost has put together a company that will have decent earnings just with its purchase of BRLI. Maybe the worm has turned.
544,000 shares according to the filing. Like CLDX, OPK has been beaten down. Might want to consider logging a loss for tax purposes and switching some $ into OPK. How often does an insider buy that many shares! OPK should have decent income with its acquisition of BRLI. It also has a number of drugs being launched or up for approval. CLDX has had promise for years, but it has become very vulnerable because its promise keeps getting pushed further and further out. Like you, I have been feeling the pain, especially with my biotech holdings. Oh well, it is only money.
Over half a million shares. I had the feeling he would wait until the deal was done. He knows the real value of OPK, so I fully expected he would take advantage of the fire sale.
Think about it. Iran negotiated a deal with all the world powers including the US. Having satisfied the rest of the world's demands, they probably knew the Republicans would reject the deal gutting whatever safeguards had been negotiated. The rest of the world removes sanctions and lets the US go it alone as they know the US is unable to make any meaningful deal based on its poisonous political climate. So Iran does what it wants, and the US and Israel will have to go it alone and suffer the consequences if we launch an attack on Iran. Sound like Iran played its hand quite well. No wonder Trump said invest in Iran!
Christie is dead meat politically. He is probably hoping to be a VP prospect, but with a Bridgegate trial coming up, he could turn into a big liability very quickly. Even if he is found to not have known about the Bridgegate misdeeds, the fact that his trusted aides, buddy, and appointees appear to have been serioulsly out of control says something about his lack of administrative skills and his inability to manage his people.
Hey, no deal, and Iran continues to do whatever it wants. The rest of the world negotiated this deal along with the US, so it is the best deal all the major world leaders thought they could negotiate. J2O, when you negotiate with someone, you never get everything you wanted, otherwise it wouldn't be a negotiations. If Congress nixes the deal, then Iran is free to do whatever it wants. We can bomb them, but experts have said that bombing wouldn't eliminate Iran's nuclear capabilities as it could just dig deeper under ground. The rest of the world is set to remove their sanctions, so nixing the deal means no controls, no inspections, and no sanctions. Wonderful!
