Americans would go nuts if a draft was re-instated because most Americans don't want to have to actually risk their lives for the chaos in the Middle East. I can't blame them. My older son is very conservative, and he believes a draft will never happen because the rich and the well connected might have to actually serve. There have been a lot of Cheney types in our history who avoid fighting themselves at all costs, but they think nothing of sending their countrymen to their deaths. I did some research a few years back, and a very low % of Congressman, both Republicans and Democrats alike, had family members or children serving in Iraq or Afghanistan. ISIS is a particular cancer in the Middle East, and I do believe that we should bomb the hell out of them. Make them pay one hundred fold for every innocent person they kill, but I would not put our young men and women on the ground where you can't tell who is a friend and who is the enemy.
No need to go hostile. Frost has proven he will sell at the right price at the right time. Patience will prevail. IMHO.
Saddam was a ruthless dictator, but the Middle East only seems to respond to ruthless dictators. Saddam was not a Sunni religious fanatic, but he was a constant limit on the Shias in Iran. I hate to second guess, but if we hadn't gone after those non-existent weapons of mass destruction, the Middle East might still look much as it did when Saddam was in power. All our efforts from day one have only made things worse. The Middle East has proven itself to be the quagmire of all quagmires, and we should refrain from sending our young men and women in there. America does not support sending our troops in there, and if all the outspoken patriots who post on this message board actually volunteered to fight, maybe we wouldn't have had to send the same young men and women back for four or five tours of duty. The sacrifice was borne by so few, and our leaders didn't even raise taxes to pay for the war effort. America has had enough.
The war hawks should enlist to fight and encourage their children to do so also if they believe we have a vested interest in the Middle East that requires boots on the ground. They should demand we raise the taxes to support the massive invasion of the Middle East that they recommend. The area is a complete hot bed of religious extremism with Shias, Sunnis, Kurds, ISIL, ethnic tribes, etc. in constant conflict. Iran and Syria were the bad guys a short while back, and now some of you are calling for us to help them fight ISIL. The Kurds have been the only constant good guys who have the courage and determination to fight for themselves. We should help them with weapons, food, intelligence, and air support as much as possible. As for the rest of the mess, let them fight it out. I have no problem bombing ISIS/ISIL back into the stone age for their ruthlessness, but I wouldn't send our young men and women over there.
For all you self-proclaimed "military experts" just look what is in today's news. If we followed you "boots on the ground" demands that you have made over the last couple of years for the Middle East, we would have our troops deployed over the entire area. The place is very unstable, and the good guy/bad guy designation changes constantly. Unless you and your cronies want to join up to fight and are willing to spend your fortunes supporting the efforts, let our military experts figure out the best way to proceed. There are many radical elements in the middle East who are ready to die for their beliefs. If they only limited themselves to sitting safely behind their computers and posting hatred, we could basically ignore them.
I figure he will buy only 115,000 shares this week because the market is closed on Monday.
is why the diner said they took the sign down. They said they are in business to serve food not politics. Although they took the sign down, they didn't have to and they weren't forced to. It was their choice, just as you are free to comment on their action. They are still selling bacon, so the taking down of the sign did not change their menu options one bit. I have relatives who live in Vermont, and the people tend to be very understanding and friendly. The sign seemed a little stupid to me anyway, so taking it down didn't bother me in the least. The fact that so many posters here are outraged that a business owner in Vermont chose to avoid offending a member of their community is rather comical. If the rest of the people in our country were as educated, civilized, and tolerant as the people in Vermont, this country would be far better off. On my many visits to Vermont, I only ran into one idiot while I was there. Ironically, the guy happened to be on vacation from NJ. The comment by one poster that Muslims are "sub-human" appears to me to be far more troubling. We have millions of Muslims living in the US, and the vast majority of them live normal and peaceful lives. One poster lamented about taking prayer out of school. Believe me, many kids in school have a hard time being quiet and respectful during the Pledge of Allegiance. Asking them to pray would be ludicrous especially when most kids and their parents don't pray at home or attend church anymore. Throw in the fact that there are many different religions, whose God are you going to pray?
Man, this guy really believes in his company. OPK has the most insider buying of any stock I have ever owned. Frost is extremely knowledgeable and savvy, and I don't believe that he would be buying somewhere in the neighborhood of 100,000 shares a week if he had any doubts in his company's potential. I predict shorts are going to suffer a slow and painful economic hurt. IMHO.
CEMP should report on the progress of their two late stage drugs for drug resistant bacterial infections: Solithromycin and Taksta. I find Taksta very interesting because it would be a big help in treating joint replacement infections. Joint replacements are becoming more and more common as our population ages with many people having multiple replacements. New antibiotics are in great need.
It should be interesting!
The buying continues. Shorts will be toast, it is just a matter of when, not if. IMHO.
All drug trials are heavily drug company influenced. Hello, where has this doctor been! However the FDA has the final say, and if the results from the trials don't measure up, all the company hype in the world will not help. OPK is not a one drug pony, so it doesn't need to hit a homerun. Singles and doubles will be fine with me!
The nice thing about OPK is that it has many irons in the fire so to speak. Dr. Frost is building this company from within and by making strategic acquisitions. He is an expert in the field of research and in building and selling companies. His constant accumulation of shares makes it easy for me to hold and add more stock when I can. This stock won't double anytime soon, but I expect a steady rise as things continue to fall into place. Down the road, I expect Frost gain controlling interest in the company and will sell the company for a serious profit as he has done before. IMHO. Good luck!
Recently read where some positions were shuffled. Good sign.
As long as Frost keeps buying, I will be in the trenches buying too. This is the most aggressive insider buying I have ever seen in my decades of investing/trading. Since Dr. Frost is a corporate and scientific heavyweight, I believe the guy has proven that he knows what he is doing. OPK will require patience, but I expect that patience will be richly rewarded. I know OPK has a large short position, but it baffles me why someone would short a stock where its chief investor will eventually hold a controlling interest in the company in short order. If Frost's name was Ichan, this stock would be selling at twice the price. In this case, I value Frost's judgment and knowledge much more than someone like Ichan.
Good news appears to be coming soon. IMHO.
for things to come. Great antibiotic, buyout, etc. all could be factors. IMHO.
