    Wyatt , ADMP has really been slaughtered. Within two months it has went from $7 to $4. That is like a 42% drop. Hope it turns around. Seems like the small biotechs are taking a beating. I wish they had more new coming out. I think the FDA has by July 29th to file or not file their NDA for the syringe. Hopefully the NDA files. The last time they tried to commercialize it in 2009 it was a disaster which exhibited poor management. Also concerned there is no news on phase three trials for their inhalers. I just h ope their management team is competent. That being said this stock could turn on dime. IMHO Good Luck

    Yes and right now it is paying over 4.5% dividend. May go down more.but who knows. I believe they have the highest dividend of any DJU and the dividend appears to be stable. Should be announcing soon.

    I doubt it. The street decided they were going to sell utilities based on interest rates going up. IMHO I think we drop more but I hope not. Volume is low. FE does have dividend support. Market appears to be really strong as of late.

    Sentiment: Hold

  • FE's more sensitive as it is the biggest loser in the Dow Jones Utilities. All the stocks in this index are down today. FE paying a 4.4% dividend at his level. I don't think there is to much downside right now. Then again probably not a lot of upside. Also volume is about average.

    Sentiment: Buy

  • Dominion to buy FE $42/share

    Reality Check

    cheknin,
    I saw that press release from 2009 and others that showed them shipping the product to Walgreen's. I was kind of confused how they could ship the product without approval. The article back then showed a $200 million dollar market for it. Why did it take so long if the product was that far along to file an NDA?

    Sentiment: Hold

  • They will be burning a lot of money. The NDA Filing probably cost close to $2 million. Shouldn't be a big suprise that they had this offering. The really need to "file" the new drug application. Get approval in about 8 months. Possibly revenue in about 6 months from then. Looks like you will be able to buy much lower if interested. Eventually their generic inhalers if approved will look like a good alternative as medical and insurance companies will need to reduce costs as medical costs will continue to increase as people who pay nothing into the system or very little will be getting much more medical service.

    Sentiment: Hold

    How Far Will She Drop?

    Yahoo shows about 1.8 million shares and the value is approximately $8.8 million at todays prices. I see Goldman and BlackRock have small stakes just for monitoring purposes. The FDA has until about July 29th whether to file the NDA. IMHO if they file it then there is a very good chance it will be approved. Company says 8 months. If they approve the stock may temporarily bump up on the news. if not the stock could definitely go down under $4, although they still have the other products in the "pipeline". This stock is a big gamble and is all about speculation although I don't know why an individual would invest what the Arabian investor did. Although if half their products pan out in a couple years he would make some serious cash. jstokcton I wouldn't invest anything in the stock that you couldn't afford to lose. IMHO

    Sentiment: Hold

  • Utilities up and 10 year bond down. Don't think this will last to long. But don't know.

    He just restated his long term plan. Sounds on track to me. Of course everyone is aware and expect them to need more capital since they their long term strategy relies on more then one drug. I like their strategy. Stock might go to $3.50 the real reward will probably be in the 2015-2016 range if their strategy works. If just a couple of their products get through this stock could easily be in the $60-100 range in 2016-2017.

    Sentiment: Strong Buy

  • because if the NDA decides not to file it that would be a big blow to the company. The company has been down since they put in the NDA but the big move in the short term will be when the FDA decides on whether to file the drug application. It is supposed to happen within 60 days of the NDA. That would be July 30th.

    Sentiment: Hold

  • I see they have a manufacturing plant in Ohio. Is this where all their panels are made or do they outsource for their panels form large projects? Just curious if they truly manufacture in US as I think it would be hard to compete against foreign manufacturers.

    Sentiment: Hold

  • wonder if Yahoo gets paid for it

    Regulatory environment supportive to FTEK

    The recently announced plan by Obama to cut CO2 30% is not good news for FTEK. There will be a lot less coal plants. FTEK doesn't have technology to cut CO2 they just reduce NOX. The only way right now to significantly reduce CO2 is replace fossil generation with non CO2 sources(nuclear & renewables). The biggest road block to this is tremendous cost to the consumers for the new generation sources. Renewables are expensive and run low capacity factors and have to be backed up reliable generation.

    residential products

    I know the analysts would disagree but I think the First solar business model where they really aren't into residential is much better the SCTY who is banking on residential. It you have a typical house and use about 600-800 kw-hrs a month I just don't see how it would be economical to install these things unless the government gives you the panels, mounts and electronics. Even if they did the average homeowner wouldn't want to deal with all that #$%$. The people who put solar panels on their house now are really more "hobbyists" in that it cost them money to do it. Unless your living in a remote area or where electric rates are astronomical (maybe Hawai). First Solar is profitable and has cash and is taking advantage of taxpayer money that is shoveled to them from the government. Large installations may be able to be justified at large utilities where they can use them for peak "shaving" on high load days.

    Sentiment: Buy

    The article was good but realistically this company has no revenues and prospects for revenues and profitabilty are far away.

    Sentiment: Hold

  • They don't seem to generate much news plus their recent NDA apparently did not impress anyone. I believe that the FDA has 60 days to make a decision whether to file the ND for review. Then they would have to review and approve. That could take a couple years. Much like their pipeline products are at least several years away.

    Sentiment: Hold

    Who would buy out FE with its current 14 billion dollar market cap? I just see this as highly unlikey

    I agree chances of a buyout are about zero because of their large market cap plus there would have to be a premium. FE is just a dividend stock. It appears their 1.44 dividend is stable. If interest rates go up so will FE, if they hold their current 4.4% dividend appears safe for awhile and is above the DJU average of 3.58%. Their debt/equity ratio is a little high compared to the DJU average. Don't see a lot of movement in FE maybe tops $34-35 in 52 weeks could trend down to $30 but should have good support due to dividend. They need to run the company more efficiently. IMHO

    EXC

    I got scared out of EXC yesterday I wanted to lock in my gains after it apeared the deal wasn't liked. Looks like I may be wrong. I was really disappointed with their earning as I thought with the strong wholesale power market that they would have done much better. IMHO Good Luck to all I will keep watching this as EXC may be volatile due to this buyout. NG still high and wholesale power still averaging much higher then the last few years for this time period.

    Sentiment: Hold
