Yes, I don't know why I ever bother to reply. Nothing ever said on message boards has any real lasting effect on ANY stock. Good research and due diligence is the best method towards investment success. Better yet, just follow the big players like Baker Brothers who own a HUGE piece of the float and are NOT Selling.
Why such short term thinking? Are you a desperate short? The stock will eventually work into the teens over time and once a product comes through P3 trails it will be MUCH bigger. Stop bashing and post some facts about the company . warning investors who are making money is a waste of time.
Once all the crazies come the board is useless but its a sign a stock is being chased by retail.
ZMH a great company with fantastic prospects as the enormous BOOMER population ages around the world.
Valuation after the Biomet merger is completed is cheap and the market hasn't realized it yet.
In what world are you living? Americans are more obese and unhealthy than in any century in US history!!. You only die of two things baring catastrophic injury. Cancer and HEART DISEASE. MILLIONS of boomers are beyond the age where changing diet will help them. Millions more will follow who still smoke, eat meat, during excessively and don't exercise. Add in hundreds of millions in other countries and you get an enormous population of individuals that will need valves for the next 30 years.
Roth often issues high PT's right before they're paid to do a secondary offering. Not a believable bunch and if you are not in XOMA for the long haul, you are going to be very disappointed.
highly doubt the device tax will be repealed. Senate may pass it but unless its part of a broader deal Obama will veto it. Remains to be seen here. Either way, EW is having a great year and the future remains very bright.
my fair value target of $125. Takeout levels still higher in my opinion. Mkt Cap $13 bl but should go for $15bl on takeover. Future revenue opportunities are outstanding, market is enormous and the company just needs to expand product lines. $40MM / year guaranteed income from MDT to put to work. BUY SMALLER names and GROW.
Oncology doctors , breast surgeons and many others are significantly EXPANDING their use of these tests and eventually CMS will mandate them prior to any surgery. Bad for medical oncologists in the short term, GREAT for GHDX. Baker Brothers know a good investment when they see one and so do I. This is going MUCH higher over time. Takes patience sometimes.
Don't care about splits and rally do not want one. Rather let the stock continue to climb to new highs without bringing in the retail investor who panics at every fake media article and Cramer sell signal. EW will continue to climb higher until they are taken over closer to 140+. If not, the stock will just keep chugging along as the Massive Boomer population ages into their products.
Stifel analyst raised PT to 132 on friday. High on the street as far as I can tell. I think it can easily get there as I continue to see a takeover multiple on this at 140-160 range . Earnings will continue to climb in the years ahead due to baby boomer gigantic population continuing to age.
Really? No barrier to entry? How about the patents they own on this device and total victory over Medtronic in the courts? How about the LOOOOONG years process to get FDA approval?
How about how resistant doctors are to change values once they have one that works and is time tested by them? Overvalued? A PE under 15 growing at nearly 30%?? It must be tough to be short a stock that is crushing all time highs and will most likely head to 140 now. If you even invest at all.
What rock did you crawl out of? Are you short the stock?? EW's earnings report shows the strength not only of the company but of its product lines. Non invasive devices, the highest margin products, rocked this qtr.
add in the guaranteed money each year from Medtronic and an enormous base of doctors that just WILL NOT switch to other devices and you get a company that remains UNDERVALUED here. A buyout multiple puts this between 145-160/share. Demographics are in their favor for the next 30 years.
Competition is SO FAR behind them and barrier to entry is ENORMOUS. Have you not heard of the FDA? Who is going to come out with a valve to dethrone them here? Even if a better device were to come out, Doctors are very hesitant to switch from something that is known and tested by them over time. This gives EW an enormous moat to cross for competitors.
EW will continue higher over time and I remain surprised a bigger player has not yet emerged to take them out here.
Roth is a pump and dump shop. I predict they will soon be leading an underwriting offering for XOMA. This is their game. Upgrade in front to drive the price higher. Than surprise investors with the offering. They've been doing this for many years. The SEC doesn't seem to mind. Investors are clueless to this in biotech. Buyer beware. I own shares of XOMA but would never buy or sell on Roth target. I suggest you follow the Baker Brothers. Great track record and a big owner here.
This is part of the problem in society today. You think a public forum is a place to say anything regardless of the value. you post angry hateful ignorant rants and this passes as investment discussion?
Yes it is a public forum but it is an INVESTMENT forum. Grow up. Or get a life. Either way.
discussing investment ideas. This a discussion board for EW. If you don't have any real thoughts, insight or analytical discussion, or perhaps some ideas around competition or other quality investment ideas, GO AWAY.
Dave and Busters has NEVER been able to turn a profit. After years of PE fine tuning, they STILL DON'T
"For the 16 weeks ended Aug. 3, the company reported revenue of $376.2 million, up 17%, and a net loss of $2.4 million."
Investors here will see their investment evaporate in the coming months just like a slew of recent IPO's in the last year have. CRCM, PBPB, FUEL and many others have gone straight down. These companies are losing money in a bull market. Wait until a bear market and you can pick them up for single digits if not at zero.
Have investors learned nothing from 14 years of market gyrations and failed companies? VC's and wall st continue to sell you their garbage. buy quality. This isn't it.
Time to admit you totally blew it with this company and move on.
totally blown it in the US. SODA has a great product and huge lead in the market and all they have done is give it away. No real competition yet but investors are acting as if everyone will put them under.
Consumers just not that interested in the brand with very little brand awareness in the US markets. Time for new management.
company is silent on the drop? It is easy for hedge funds and shorts to put out phony news stories here and drive it lower. This is a long term growth story but the market cap is already big. China is enormous but uncertain.
If the company is for real, the stock will eventually turn around. Lots of questions. No answers from the company yet. Facebook did the same thing when they announced the switch from desktop to mobile. Took awhile to turn it around. Same thing here I guess.
Analysts are typically useless. They upgrade at the top and downgrade at the bottom. 95% of them are just shills for their underwriting groups. By the time analysts lower PT's here, the stock will be on the way back up. Not today however.
