The reason I wanted Reduce-It canned was to avoid a dilution that would cost shareholders the remainder of their investment. As a shareholder back then, I did not want to see us all wiped out completely. The FDA SPA rescission left no other option barring Thero pulling a rabbit out of the hat. There was no way to complete Reduce-It without a dilution that would transfer ownership of AMRN to whomever funded the completion of the trial. With this adorable Chinese rabbit, there's now hope that current shareholders will get to share in Reduce-It success, should it happen. It's therefore a worthwhile bet and I'm in for it. It was unfortunate I was forced to sell at the bottom my decision was to use those losses to offset some of my gains for 2014. I have a principle which I always follow:- Never pay taxes on profits you might not get to keep.
I think there will be a run-up to interim results. It might be wise to offload enough shares in that runup to cover the cost of shares held. That's my plan anyways.
Good luck to everyone. The FDA has made this a bizarre adventure. Who knows what will happen next!
I doubt that very much. there's no budget for carpet cleaning.
What a save. Dilution avoided until 2017.
Congrats everyone. It could not happen to a more deserving bunch!
They were my shares. Take good care of them. I might buy them back when she drops under a dollar provided the balance sheet is still reasonable and the current BOD has been replaced.
"Give it 6 months, 1 year, 2 years, 3 years ...... Less"
What happens to those of us who have already given it about 10 times those periods? Should we just centuries at this point?
Well, that's his purpose in life - to shovel cash at complete strangers. But first you need to buy shares in his company so the cash needs to go the other direction!
with the 23AmnMe decision, I'm surprised PACB has not responded.
Google the subject above. Heard it on the way to work today. Very positive on checkpoint inhibitors.
Perhaps Agenus is finally in the right place at the right time with the right capital.
The money on the balance sheet is not really gone. The money will still be put to the same use. It will be deployed in Ruple areas, to build the business, where is still has the same purchasing power. You point would be valid if Qiwi were importing from outside ruple areas. Luckily that's not the case. Eventually Russia will either recover or show Mr. Putin to door. Even Putin is not immune to the economic results his policies wreak. When that happens the ruple will recover. In the meantime Qiwi's sound financial management assures that Qiwi will be around when the recovery arrives. As I said, I like the company. I just don't know where the bottom is.
I've been patiently waiting for this to drop to add shares but I'm starting to think this is the bottom. The strength of the balance sheet puts Qiwi in a different class to YNDX and the growth rate is impressive. Depression or boom, people are going to need things and online prices are going to force smart buyers to source a lot of that stuff from the internet. Without a trusted banking system, Qiwi's solution for facilitating transaction logistics, would seem to me to be a winner. I would also guess that should a reputable bank appear on the scene and build trust, the acquisition of Qiwi's network would be very tempting instead of trying to rebuild all that.
I like Qiwi's buisness model a lot. The only question is when to go long.
BLX could flood China with cheap servers and PC's, cutting Intel out of the equation.
It will be interesting to see if Intel counters a Chinese bid. For Intel to risk the loss of the Chinese market over a few billion dollars just seems unlikely to me.
"Nobody here will buy your bluster."
And neither should they.
They should however consider what they might do if they were in Intel's position w.r.t the Windows PC microprocessor space.
IMHO, if AMD runs into financial trouble a few years from now, Intel will arrange the necessary finance to keep the show on the road in a way that will allow Intel continue to claim AMD is proof Intel is not a monopoly in the Windows PC space. The reality is clear. Without AMD, Intel must adapt its business practices for the reality of being a monopoly in the Windows PC space.
AMD is in reality one of Intel's most valuable assets. They're not going to stand by and let it disappear. Use your head for petesake.
If you like guaranteed secondaries at regular intervals, combined with ever better buying opportunities, then AGEN is the stock for you. You might want to ease in though. That will allow you to develop your strategy of averaging down over the next few years. Everyone here is already skilled in this area. And the best part, you'll never have to worry if capital gains tax (CGT) is increased. In fact, an increase in CGT will be a positive as it will allow you to use your AGEN losses to reduce your liabiility from gains in your other stocks.
Happy investing and welcome aboard and, could you hold this bag for me, I need to see a man about a dog!
Excellent news, any particular reason or should we go with your gut instinct?
There's no $100 in AMD's future but the all points in the $2 to $5 ranges will probably be touched in the next year or two. For those capable of understanding the dynamics here, AMD can be a very profitable play. It's easier for the intellectually challenged if you think percentages only.
True but there's no way Intel would stand idly by while AMD disappeared, forcing Intel into a monopoly position in the PC business, making doing business many orders of magnitude of AMD's current market cap, more expensive. A word to the wise: AMD will not be exiting the industry anytime soon.
