thanks Raleigh, You must have grown up listening to Dean Martin also ! Du se du, or something like that.
"Return to me," I've never been to Italy, "wish I could take the wife" she is ill all of the time."
I've been here for 2 qtrs. now, and read the same last time. We DID get the short end of it again; what can we do? These little companies like PBYI or ICPT "trade in the sky"(as I read on one of the boards) with mkt caps 20% of GILD. I can't complain with my positions, I need to watch the Aug. calls to close out when the time comes.
If the stock price is $38 with small earnings now, What will the price be if they are $5 at the low end, or $9 ?
The stock price should double from here. We're STILL waiting for the "ship to come in" with GILD, It was NEVER $ 38 for me to get in !
write; go with the company. I had enough shares of BIDU last year, and some out there think CHINA is NOT the future, "they are DEAD WRONG". I bailed out @ $108, now see where they are? I may have made a little, but there was plenty "China and BIDU bashing like Quihoo and others will cut their business. Now look @ the 2015 earnings, wouldn't you like to have 1000 BIDU from $108? I got my shirt invested here, but have my pants left
for ENTA or something else. Its hard to disregard ENTA earnings for 2015. Huge as BIDU is,
( they only have 350 mil shares),and they have all of China pulling for them!
I believe in God, but I DID NOT let the arabs in here, maybe it was Clinton and of course O'Bama. The constitution is a BIG joke from what Jefferson wrote. Money can buy anything now, move offshore, threaten states like Walgreen's can now, or go to Switzerland with tax breaks from Illinois. I have nothing against "Redskins". Next they will protest against "The Bears, falcons, Sea hawks, Bengals. Nothing wrong using "Chinaman" an Irish male is called an Irishman, or a Puerto Rican ! They may get touchy with the last one.
It went up jut because they got the "thumbs up" from the FDA with some breast cancer drug. That's all I've seen so far; and I will read more about them. With luck we will go up tomorrow, today is a sad excuse for GILD !
This contradicts ANYONE that says "shares outstanding don't mean a thing."
Too many times p.e.'s are SWEPT AWAY and forgotten if the street wants.
You have company bear! I feel the same looking @ BIIB, and Axelon. Again, "they only have 200 mil shares". That is what I harp about! What do I know ? I've never heard of PBYI, "it sound like another TCBY .
I'll look @ them.
healthcare, and senators looking differently if one of their family had HIV/ HVC; and we are entering an
era with rationed health care, as the author writes; with changes taking place. Who's going to cover the have-not's, or the Guatemalan types in the U.S.? Not me !
from buying calls. I had a feeling one could be locked out by BIIB having a much smaller amt of shares, and there is a connection between shares and calls. BIIB only lists 200mil. shares, GILD,(believe it or not) has more listed than IBM,and the whole civilized world knows IBM. This may sound like that Pepsi post I know, GILD is like comparing a mouse to an elephant I know !
the calls that a person could buy. I was looking @ Aug. calls, but I "do see" your 320's for Aug. have a respectable amt of volume, also the 340's, 350's. I have GILD, (which seems to carry a huge weight on its back)and gets knocked by Alpha, Motley. etc. with mucho shares outstanding and see these small cos. go up. I suspect you know about ENTA for next yrs. earnings.A majority of GILD calls are hovering around the 92.50's for Aug. regarding volume as many are trying to get the most "bang for their buck."
Anyone up to this?
"How can any of you make money with calls, if there are NO calls listed in the volume?" It looks like you are
celebrating holding 2 calls! There are not many shares outstanding in BIIB, and GILD has flooded the market with shares, like Lira or yen.
I just brought up the 2 yr chart for IBM. It looks like a roller coaster at Six Flags ! Nothing I would want to get into ! Maybe the hey day for them was 40 yrs ago ? cheers !
I'm a solid GILD fan, but have seen the ENTA "in the bag " blowout earnings written about for 2015 with their connections. The price for the options are NOT in the sky like ICPT.
so I will ask here. Say one wants to buy 50 calls, can I do that when the call volume is like a penny stock volume
193 B for IBM and "What is REALLY unbelievable" is shares outstanding are 998 mil. That must be a misprint, as GILD has over a bil. IBM "does not" look like a place to put one's money, even with earnings so high according to the opinions. Better to play GILD.
I'm not worried, I have calls. I've never looked @ IBM; must be a zillion shares. These companies are NOT household names, how many people on the street have ever heard of ACRX, ICPT etc.
ENTA I was told has 2015 earnings guaranteed "big". I would like to get calls, but they have little stock. I take it "that stops call buying"?
