    what was the reason for the big drop off in share price a few years age at one time this stock and RNF were flying high.. Do you think UAN can maintain the dividend? i would think being in the agriculture industry the revenue stream would stay pretty consistent?

    I could be wrong but i think UAN uses a lot of nat gas in production so if nat gas is cheap UAN should benefit.. i used to follow this stock but after a big drop lost track of it.. With that said with cheap nat gas and a 12% dividend im surprised this stock has done much better.....

  • instead here we are at 12 again.... with the right news and the rally in biotechs this week we could have easily broke thru the the 52 week high and maybe 20 a share ... Biotechs went thru the roof this week unfortunately NKTR wasnt included . I would like to hold this stock but feeling less confident about it... a few things that wory me are...1. Wall street doesnt seem too optimistic about the deals NKTR is making or the future revenue stream these deals will bring... To spend years getting a drug thru the process and then if it finally gets apporoved and then to just get 20% of sales??? seems like they are giving away the house? 2. Biotechs are probaly in a bubble will NKTR get sold off when people take profits in biotechs? 3..wasnt the phase 2 trial messed up for NKTR 182 when one of the groups falied to prove anything conclusive? A new pain drug without the addiction that NKTR 182 might provide would be huge but of course that news is a year away... i think i read nktr 182 has fast track approval but that may not mean as much these days as it once did???

    The 2 buck haircut is over

    you mean a 10 dollar haircut dont you? JP Morgon issued a statement on March 10 saying if results were positive for 102 it could mean a 5 dollar bounce in the share price from 14.50 factor in the rally by bio techs this week and it would have been perfect timing for it to break 20 dollars a share.. instead its wait till the next beacon study....

    I was wondering what endpoint they were hoping to achieve also? was also thinking how long will it be before we see another up day on this stock?

    VERY POSITIVE CONFERENCE CALL

    After reading the news releases, it doesn't sound all bad. They didn't succeed at achieving the endpoint but did double the life expectancy of some patients and there were fewer side effects with NKTR 102. Unfortunately these are end of life drugs that are used when everything else has failed so if NKTR 102 can in some cases double the months a person has remaining with fewer side effects it could be another option that a dr has at his disposal.. is it a cure or a blockbuster they were hoping for... it doesn't look like it at this time...

  • I thought WR was over priced at 44 dollars a share.... They say the reason for the drop in Utilities is profit taking and the possibility of interest rates rising in the near future.. But Tell me how much difference is a 1/2 per cent hike in interest rates going to make... Might be a good time to start adding thru the DRIP again... Good Luck...

    What is CBRL's new concept?.....Someone

    raise prices and get you out of there as soon as possible so the next person can take your seat and spend their money.....come on 250 for a cup of coffee...

  • CBRL has a 3.8 billion market cap at that price each location is valued at 6.5 million dollars.. I don't see it... With that said I wish i would have picked up some shares 5 years ago...

    was buying NKTR at 12.75 and selling INCY at 25... with that said Nktr has a good pipeline and one drug already approved plus they seem to have entered into some good partnerships with big pharma .. Unfortunately NKTR could be 2 or 3 or 5 years away from getting a home run drug approved... and if you factor in the possibility of a big overall market correction sometime between now and the next 5 years NKTR could fall alot... but you still have the pipeline .. To me the big home run drug is the painkiller drug that is if it is somewhat effective in controlling pain and much less addictive than the opioid drugs currently on the market I would think there would be a large market for such a drug.. I read an article years ago where the author was trying to find the next stock that would perform like Microsoft did in the 80s and 90s He chose ISIS pharmaceuticals .. Well Isis is still around and currently is in the 60s but never became the big drug company that was envisioned...

  • Why doesn't Apple buy ATT , Verizion. Sprint, and T mobile? It's kind of like the Auto parts companies being worth more than the companies that make the cars...

  • gatsbyrising by gatsbyrising Feb 12, 2015 7:09 PM Flag

    NKTR has one drug approved and producing income .. that is saying alot for a biotech....

  • ATT makes all the big investments upgrading networks and Apple makes all the money selling their imported from China phones that cost nothing to make ... How long can that last?

    Dis'ing dividends

    I bought for the dividend also.. im not so worried about the the stock price going up and down as long as the income keeps coming in? Heard a guy on the radio today talking about the importance of income when investing..His slant was if you go to buy a car or go on vacation you will pay with dollars so you need income from your investments vs. asset gains... IMO ATT is undervalued....Unfortunately Apple seems to be the one making all the money but does so because they are subsidized by the big phone companies...ATT and Verizon lay out big money expanding their networks while Apple imports their expensive phone from China that costs nothing to make and get subsidized by att and verizon . i dont get it . Facebook also has a higher market cap than ATT . I dont get that either...

    Like I said before AT&T will do just fine.

    how long will ATT and Verizon continue to subsidize Apple? Seems like ATT and Verizon spend all the money to upgrade networks and Apple makes all the money....Doesn't Apple get paid full price when ATT sells a phone for half price to get customers to lock into a contract? I bought this stock almost one year ago to the day and its about the same price as i bought it at. I do like the dividend tho... another thing i dont get about this stock is people are having to pay up for dividends in other stocks like elec utilities etc but ATT pays a dividend over 5 per cent and the stock is stuck in the 30's and itrs also the most shorted stock on the DOW which is scarry to me since most of my 401k is in this stock

    OKE will soon be back at 70... unless you load up now there wont be time to acquire it at these prices over a period of time.. no way will wall street let a stock with the ability to pay a dividend languish at these prices.. lve never seen so many 100 dollar stocks..... once they kick in the algorithms will push this stock 2 to 5 per cent a day..... and the rich get richer....

  • i guess as long as interest rates stay low utilities will keep going up.. i dont see interest rates going up very fast when they do decide to raise interest rates.... who knows we may see 50????

    a lot of stocks have quadrupled since 2008 some are 10x higher thanks to the fed ( its insulting what the banks are paying in interest).... so its hard to know a true value of a stock.. i own some shares in an electric utility and they missed earnings in the last qter and still the stock has gone up 5 dollars since... ive been thinking about buying OKE thru the drip plan just cant seem to do it as of yet... since OKE is a storage/ pipeline company i guess they wont be hurt as bad as some but do they earn as much money when they aren't moving nat. gas thru the pipelines? I was at the local convenience store the other day getting gas and thought to myself I wonder if people are filling up the tank with the low gas prices so i looked around at the pumps and several pumps showed people had put in or 3 and 5 dollars or 10 dollars worth... that doesn't sound like an improving economy to me.......Hard to know what to do....

    any idea what other drugs currently on the market 102 would compete with? there are different levels of pain and different pain killers depending on the type of pain you are being treated for.. if NKTR has a drug that can control chronic pain without the addiction part one would think it would be a blockbuster drug... especially with all the horror stories about many of the pain killers currently out there..

  • market cap nktr 2 billion....NPS 5 billion
    revenue nktr 212 million ..... NPS 211 million
    cash on hand nktr 200 million NPS .160 million
    I know its about the pipeline but NKTR seems undervalued in comparison of the numbers especially if they can get another drug approved....
