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.
The beat goes on. Shorts will be fried in due time. IMHO.
My net worth has increased dramatically, and that included some serious losses I took when our economy looked like it would collapse in a panic. Those who hate the president pick and choose what they want to focus on. During Obama's just completed two week vacation with his family, he made for public statements on serious issues, and he returned to the WH to do formal work there for two days. He did play golf, but what CEO doesn't. A lot of thought and discussion can occur while riding on a cart to get to your ball, especially if you are a mediocre golfer. I am sure Obama is surrounded by advisors and communications personnel at all times. Just look at how gray Obama's hair has become in just six years, and you will see how much stress and pressure he has been dealing with. If anyone wants to criticize Obama's vacation schedule, they should remember to compare it to the record number of days GW took. I remember reading GW's daily exercise schedule, and wondering how the heck he had so much time to work out. In retrospect, I expect GW played while Cheney made all the important decisions.
President GW Bush took 879 vacation days during his eight years in office. During that time we had 9/11, the Iraq War, Katrina, Osama bin Laden on the loose, etc., etc. Those 879 days represented over 30% of his actual time in office. Bush spent those days playing on his ranch, riding his bike, riding horses, going to baseball games, boating, fishing, and maybe even playing golf. President Reagan took a much more reasonable 335 vacation days, but he was known to take naps during briefings and meetings, so I guess you would have to factor those mini-vacations in somehow. President Obama has taken around 150 days in his close to six years in office. At that rate he will take somewhere around 200 days for his eight years in office. That means Obama will have spent around two more years at work than Bush did during their respective times as president. Interesting. But there was a good side to Bush taking so much vacation time, at least he had less opportunities to give dignitaries like the British Prime Minister a shoulder massage.
The good doctor relentlessly keeps buying. Short some more, boys and girls!!
I guess you plan to volunteer and want to initiate a draft to mobilize. Then again, you must also be calling for a war tax to fund this massive endeavor because we can't just add the cost to our deficit like Bush did in the Iraq War. It would be nice if the people like you at home supported the troops' efforts with their tax dollars if nothing else. The vast majority of Americans don't want troops on the ground in the Middle East. Bombing them back into the stone age works fine for me. As for playing a round of golf, I am sure Obama, just like all the presidents before him needs a little diversion from the constant stress he deals with. With today's communications, I am sure he is in touch at all times. Is it OK for him to take a #$%$, or is that too much of a distraction in your mind.
Duh, Frank, terrorists routinely move hostages around because they know we are watching from above and sometimes have eyes on the ground. You can choose to be such a simpleton when you find it convenient. You and rays actually believe that you know more than our intelligence and military experts who have spent their whole lives working in this area! Many of them came up through the ranks and proved their metal by risking their lives for our country many times over. To suggest that they would recommend sending our troops in on a mission they knew was doomed to failure is absurd, but most of what you two "military experts" post on a daily basis is absurd and ludicrous. But then again, it is quite easy to criticize when you safely hide behind your computers in your air conditioned rooms.
Frank, rays, you guys are absurdly biased and deliberately misleading . Obama sent our special forces in there when our recon. indicated that it was a good time to complete a rescue. Do you really think our generals, CIA, etc. would recommend sending in troops knowing the operation wasn't going to be successful! You guys are incredible windbags who shoot your mouth off at every turn. You not only second guess the president, you are second guessing our military experts who have served our country valiantly and faithfully for many years. You guys only serve yourselves with your idiotic postings, and should be ashamed of yourselves for badmouthing the brave men and women who recommended this action and carried it out to the best of their ability! But then again, guys like you run your mouths off while others put their lives on the line.
The beat goes on!!!
I think the US needs to defend our interests without putting our young men and women on the ground in places like the Middle East where suicidal extremists flock from around the world. Nation building didn't work in Iraq under Bush, and Obama's efforts to stabilize the mess that ensued haven't worked. Bombing the hell out of the bad guys works fine for me while we support the Kurds and any other good guys in the region who have the courage to fight for their independence and religious freedom just like our ancestors did. I would like to see the US continue to fully support Israel so that the Arab world agrees to accept their right to exist. I would also like to see two-year mandatory military service for all Americans right out of high school. It would help mature our youth, and it would keep the war hawks honest because their kids and grandkids would have to serve just like ordinary folks' kids do when we go to war. I would also like to see a continuation of the diplomacy that has lessened the tensions between Israel and Iran, and I am happy with the way Obama and Europe has been calling Putin's bluff. We know he could run over the Ukraine if he chose to, but it is a plus for Obama that he has been able to face Putin down and keep countries like Germany and England in our corner. As a former military person, you must know what it is like to serve in a war where it is difficult to figure out what you are fighting for and who is on your side. We have lost thousands of wonderful young service men and women and you must agree, it is time for that to stop. Tens of thousands have to go through life with horrific wounds, PTSD, and all kinds of problems. Veterans often have trouble getting jobs, and they constitute one of our highest homeless segments and suicidal risk groups. They gave their all while their fellow countrymen went about their lives without much thought about the sacrifices they were making. We didn't even raise taxes to pay for the Iraq war!!!
Frank doesn't care about facts. He just shoots from the hip and hopes nobody remembers what he said last week, the week before, and the week before that. It is quite comical to read his attacks.
