I agree with others on the board. The announcement was hit by large shorting and now NKTR has no real catalyst for several months and see the same pattern of returning to 10 bucks and change or below. I may pick up shares again in the 9-10 pps range. The same pattern seen with MNKD who is also awaiting commercialization has dropped 40% since it's approval.
LOL, wow you just can't stop lying can you? I didn't sell at the bottom. Second I've owned this for many years probably longer than you. Third, I reinvested my winnings into Sprint so you think I care about how this stock is 2% higher than what I sold it for? You make me chuckle ;). Like I said, I feel I can beat the returns from SLRC and I'd say, doing quite well with the strategy. I'll keep monitoring this board, just for laughs ;)
No I feel wonderful that I made a profit. Your are looking at a couple of weeks window which is laughable. Try pinging me 5 years from now and see if my reinvested money did better than SLRC. That's what I'm betting on. Didn't panic at all. AND made money. Just reallocating funds. You are the typical message board troll.
wasn't going to get agry until someone like you posts a lie. I did not sell at an "all time low". You've been caught. Why provide an off the cuff comment that was a lie with no value whatsoever? I gave my reasons. You provided nothing. Please go see a shrink...
No I called you on your lie ...all time low - nope. Your credibility is obviously lost. You had nothing to offer except criticize someone who made a profit with off base comment without value and now you talk about name calling? Dude, go talk to a shrink....
no interest since the last cc. I think there will be little movement until the next cc. There won't be any ground breaking catalysts. They just need to increase nameplates. Only significant increase in revenue will help the PPS so most are just waiting on the sidelines. Possible runnup to the cc.
This morning's sell off was quick from profit taking. The rebound indicates there is growning demand leading up to PDUFA date of September 16th. I'm still sticking with my PPS target between 16-18. It will be Nektar's largest approval to date
You must be kidding? They over promised on the opening of Moema and was about a half a year late so when it finally opened, it was a non-event for the pps and more of a relief. They've lost a lot of investor confidence of late and now needs to execute. There will be no game changer announcement. Perhaps more supply agreements but the only way the PPS will go up is if revenue goes up. Be prepared to hold this for at least 2 years.
Almost 30% of float is being shorted. Unless there is a surprise earnings, the shorts will continue to keep this low. I really do not think there will be any "good" news that is announced. The only good news in increase in revenue consistent with targets. The fundamentals will then kick in over the long term. SZYM just needs to execute and quit overpromising that loses investor confidence.
You need to check your facts, I bought in the low 18s in 2010. Held nearly 5 years with over 7.5% compounded annually. Yes I made money. It's amazing how when you sell, idiots like yourself that are in love with a stock come out of the woodwork to criticize someone who made a profit. Even if I sold at book value, I bet I would get the same criticism....see it all the time, you are not special. I don't think SLRC is a bad stock. I just think I can do better with my profits elswhere. SLRC is just one of several BDCs I own. If it recovers back to it's book value, good for you. Who knows, maybe during that time my re-allocated funds will have done better. Only time will tell.
I disagree. This movement was purely driven by the pdufa date mid September. A small pullback was inevitable. I believe there will be another upswing in the next coue of weeks. I don't think the bax data moved the needle. A there's no way a mediocre clinical update would cause a 30% move.
The market is siding with dcxavier's assessment. The PPS didn't move at all with the announcment. So the Street saw very little if any value.
Not really. And Thank you. There's nothing wrong with making a profit and did very well with this company. I don't fall in love with a stock. My assessment is I can do better elsewhere. SLRC made a calculated mistake with their buybacks and lost money on it. Now with no buyback support, I think there is a risk that this may fall further or stay stagnant for a while. Good luck.
Today's movement is nice but with no volume so to me means little. The last couple of spikes were immediately hit by downward pressure. I hope you are right though. This stock is heavily shorted with 27% of flloat. Any significant runnup will be further enhanced by covering. However, so far the shorts are winning.
No real news till they announce commercial supplies in Q1 of next year, no numbers until Q2 and risk of slow uptake...remember exubera? So I think many investors see this as dead money for another 4 -5 months. Let's face it, MKND is a one hit wonder.
Held for several years, still made a good profit and was still up with the PPS. Their terrible execution of the buybacks and price movement of late makes me think that this will go lower and remain there for a while, meanwhile there are other better BDC options out there. Good luck
