  • 13.5% and warrants seems like an expensive price to pay for a company with solid prospects. The interest alone is going to take a big bite out of their earnings. Check the RGDX message board for their reactions.

    Frank, the best doctors have said that there is no danger of infection by bringing these missionaries home with our advanced medical treatments and isolation capabilities. Stop with the "Plagues and Pestilence" #$%$. As a self-proclaimed expert on medical research and knowledge, you should know much better. By the way, I haven't got around to check with my relatives and friends who worked for or are working in BMY, SGP, MRK, and Novartis, but I intend to see if your self-proclaimed importance ever came to their notice. Windbags like you tend to have the need to try to make everyone believe you where the fountain of knowledge and experience. Based on previous talks with my connections in the pharma industry, many overpaid and peter principal types (as you yourself mentioned) were bought out over the last 10 years. Since you "retired" in your early 50's, I have a feeling you were given an offer you "really couldn't refuse."

    Insider reportedly sold over 40,000 shares on Friday, close to 2/3 of his holdings. CBST had a nice run, but has it run too far too fast?

  • reportedly purchased by our good Dr. Frost. When are shorts going to see the handwriting on the wall and move on to safer shorts. Dr. Frost is a proven winner in building and selling companies, so why bet against someone who has done it before and who is willing to put his many millions on the line. He knows OPK's potential better than anyone. IMHO.

    Years back, I called Cramer's show twice. I emailed my questions in the AM, and they called me back to confirm that they would allow me to get through to the show at night. Actually, they called me back and put me on hold about twenty minutes before it was time to ask my questions. The first time they pretty much "allowed" me to ask the question I wanted, although Cramer didn't really answer my question; he just used it to go into a bit that he wanted to expound upon. The second time I called, they tried to get me to change my question so that it didn't bear any semblance to the question I emailed them. I told them I wouldn't change my question, so they finally allowed me to ask it. I came to the conclusion that Cramer's show is highly controlled and scripted. I got the distinct feeling that they sought certain questions to fit Cramer's script for that night. I believe he was alerted to what the questions were beforehand, and thus he was able to respond very easily. Cramer obviously can move the market AH, but other than that, his guess isn't much better than yours or mine. IMHO.

    These guys would take their money and run unless they truly believed in the prospects of OPK. That's good enough for me!

    Chelsea went to numerous prestigious universities like Stanford and Oxford where she earned BA's, MA's, and PHD's in record time. Sarah played basketball through about four schools and took about six years to earn a BA in something or other. Sarah gets paid big buck for her books, Fox News, personal appearances, etc., so I would expect Chelsea's educational credentials would entitle her to the same opportunity if not better. The only difference is that Sarah might have better vision being able to see Russia from Alaska and the like.

  • should prove very interesting. Might make the stock pop if the news is good. I believe CEMP hired someone to over see antibiotic marketing, so they appear to be confident that things are on track. If so, we should see double digits again very quickly! IMHO.

  • Seems like the good doctor is buying over 100,000 shares every week now no matter the price. Tells me that he believes the company is a strong buy whether he buys at $8.50 or $9.25. Why there are so many shorts is a mystery to me. The best sign of good things to come is insider buying, and I have never seen an insider buy as aggressively as Dr. Frost. Just think about it!

    Short Position

    Last week I read where there was an almost 6% drop in short interest. Based on how well OPK's stock has held up in a weak market, I expect covering is continuing. With Dr. Frost buying large chunks of shares every week, shorts will get the message sooner or later. Good luck!

    Who does Chelsea think she is, Sarah Palin? I luv the way you guys reason, or don't!

  • He certainly is confident in his company's prospects.

    "Free and Clear" Frank

    You are the only guy on this board and just about any board I visit who constantly brags about his performance. Even when your previous posting of buys contradicts your successes, you still expect us to believe that you are not incurring significant losses in some of your positions. Hey, I have a pretty good knowledge of accounting with several accountants in the family, including my son, but what you are expecting us to believe is voodoo accounting at its best. You are a hall of famer in your own mind, but don't expect the rest of us to buy into your nonsense.

    Guys, why waste your time arguing about profits and losses with Frank. His pat answer is always free and clear shares. Buying a boat load of shares and then seeing them drop something like 40% usually results in substantial loses for mere mortals. Frank may have made out well on the CLDX run-up, but if he kept buying on the way down as his posts indicate, he has taken quite a beating. Frank is a bio-tech guy and the sector has been crushed the last few months. I am quite certain his portfolio is worth a lot less today than it was 6 months ago.

    I heard someone say on the radio that Judge Judy may be asked to hear the House Republican lawsuit. Should be interesting. Ironically the Republicans are suing because Obama made some changes to Obamacare, a law they opposed every step of the way. I believe they voted to repeal it over a hundred times. At least they were able to make up their minds on something. Now they are going to try to have a trial and some nut jobs are calling for impeachment. The fact that a gas bag flip flopper like Christie is leading the pack for the Republican nomination shows just how divided and pathetic the Republicans are. Christie has had his state's debt downgraded something like six times. Job creation in NJ sucks. The transportation fund is just about bankrupt. His closest associates closed down bridge lanes for days as political punishment to a local mayor, but Christie claims he didn't know anything about what they were doing: that shows real leadership. Hurricane Sandy relief is a mess, and Christie is breaking his commitment to fund the state's pension system after negotiating a deal less than two years ago. If he is the best the GOP has to offer, the next election should be a lot of fun.

    Ireland's most recent unemployment rate is 11.6%. Enough said, Frank! You just pull this #$%$ out of your imagination and stereotype illusions. Come to think of it, where you sent packing from your pharma job? I know a lot of pharmas had big layoffs of dead wood a couple of years back. You might have been a prime example of the Peter Principle you refer to. I have relatives who are or were pretty high up in BMY, SGP, etc.. I'll check to see if any of them made your acquaintance. One of them headed up operations in Ireland for a time, and he told me they went there because of the lower tax rate and low wages, not because the workforce was better trained.

    Praising the tactics of a guy like Putin because you don't like Obama is just pure sick. President Obama represents our country and you guys hate him for trying to get us out of stupid wars Bush started, trying to get affordable healthcare for all US citizens, trying to pull hard working people out of poverty by raising the minimum wage, etc., etc. So according to you politics tops your countries best interests. Frank, I have read your hateful and perverted postings for quite a few years. You may have some knowledge about biotechs, but your political fanaticism is just over the top. The only good thing about your hateful postings is that normal people who live in the real world and work in our country's melting pot, get to see what our country would be like if the likes of you ever got control. I wish you had to live under your buddy Putin's rule. I bet you would keep your big mouth shut under those circumstances.

    Oh by the way, your Republican House of Rep. has done nothing these past six years and according to the latest Fox News poll, Congress has an approval rating of 13%. But that won't stop them from going on a long vacation break. I wonder if you will research how many rounds of golf Boehner will be playing. Right! At least they did decide to sue the President for using his executive authority as every other modern president has done. That has to be absurdly funny because he took those actions because the Republican House is so divided that they can't agree within their our party how to proceed on any major issue. Just ask Eric Cantor about that.

    Just read where Russian businessmen and others are becoming increasingly nervous that the sanctions are beginning to isolate Russia from the EU and the rest of the world. The knocking down of the Malaysian plane appears to have put a dent in Putin's strategy. Reportedly opposition voices are beginning to be heard in the local media which is highly unusual for Russia especially under Putin. I know of few of you guys are Putin fans, but like most other egotistical maniacs, he will end up having to back down or bring Russia to the edge of financial ruin.

  • The good doctor just keeps buying thousands of shares on a very regular basis no matter what the price. Pretty soon the available float will start to shrink. Frost is in control. All he has to do is announce that OPK is considering strategic options and this stock will jump into double digits. Can't see why someone would short with that hanging over their head, but hey some people are easily parted from their money. IMHO.
