    The only news will not be until July & then in Aug 2016 re: the final results from the IBS-C study, after that I hope to hear BO news!!!

    Sentiment: Buy

  • Most investors think that Shire will be the buyer of SGYP, but if this assumption is correct, then why would they need to hire Marino Garcia, SGYP knows what their company is worth in the event of a sale, so don't think Shire is the buyer. SGYP has already showed their hand a year ago & stated they was putting company up for sale, they never said they was looking for a partner, although more value would be created for company & shareholders , so it seems to me that hiring more people would indicate a partnership , or borrowing the 200-300m & collecting all profits is more likely ? Long SGYP

    Sentiment: Buy

    The most positive case I can make @ this time is that Antares is acquired in 2017; let’s look at the example of Avanir to judge what a takeover price could be. Avanir launched its only product, Nuedexta for pseudobulbar affect in 2010. The sales growth due to Nuedexta was as follows: $10 million in 2011, $41 million in 2012, $75 million in 2013 and an estimated $111 million in 2014. This is not dissimilar to the sales trajectory I am forecasting for Antares from 2014 through 2017. Avanir was acquired by Otsuka in December 2014 for $3.5 billion which was 32 times expected 2014 sales. There are many differences between Avanir and Antares of which the most striking are that Nuedexta has a much better patent position than the products of Antares, but Antares has a much, much broader array of product candidates. The 32 times market capitalization to sales purchase price paid by Otsuka seems extremely high, but even half that price (as judged by multiple of sales) would be very rewarding. After cutting out redundant costs, Antares could be an accretive acquisition for one of many specialty pharmaceutical companies with Teva probably being at the top of the list. At 11 times market capitalization to sales, the stock price would be $10.00.

    Sentiment: Buy

  • These reverse splits are wiping out shareholders, my cost basis will go from 3.45 to 34 if a 1 for 10 reverse split happens , although a 1 for 5 would do it. Not really wanting to take a $1,900 loss, but not sure its worth to keep buying down cost basis, any ray of hope ?

    Sentiment: Hold

    ORLY buying AAP, already in the works...

    CSK was a brilliant move for ORLY, they needed stores in the West & man did they get some , the build out organically would be 5-7 years there which would be much longer on the East coast to acquire thousands of stores so all the more reason to do the Acquisition. AAP is much like ORLY so they are preferred in the deal by shareholders same as CSK. ORLY does it better than anyone !! I've been involved in many BO's with ORLY & they are flawless & every time ORLY announces an acquisition their stock soars, so I see ORLY easily going up $30-40 a share , although maybe not as much because of the bond offering which is the first step for this large takeover. PS: I am making a 5 year price call on ORLY stock & saying that it will be $485 by March 2021.

    Sentiment: Buy
