If the World were simple....Without Politics, of course you would be dead on. However, there does not seem to be a real sense of urgency from European, and U.S. officials as to the very real threat of this disease.
I am afraid that until we see a few corpses show up in France, Germany, or Italy, or especially on the shores of the United States, and actually scaring the fracking crud out of people, APATHY will remain the story, and TMKR will just simmer along with the rest of their fellows. I just hope they can build supply enough to meet the demand that almost a near certainty to show up. It is the culture over there has turned the entire area into a giant Petri dish for Ebola.
And I will tell you why.
Aids was stopped/made treatable/slowed...... only by a Worldwide effort, made possible ONLY after that horrible disease posted unbelievable numbers to every part of AMERICAN society. Then and only then Billions and Billions of Dollars were poured into research and development.
Now we stand Light years ahead in knowledge. Yet we have a President who is steadfast against EVERYTHING that can be used to most efficiently stop Ebola.
He does not believe in Capital Markets. He only believes in money for Salary's, and for Administration and zero Dollars for actual research.
He believes in Government taking and counting. Therefor, in the Countries where Ebola is germinating, the first contacts do not trust any forms of Government, (because that normally means slavery, rape, torture, etc...) The chances of them coming in for treatment with a case of the sniffles by people in space suits, is in my mind, less than nominal.
Obama made an announcement for 150 Million Dollars for Ebola a few days ago. At the end of the day , when it is all broken down, my bet, is that the money will go for nothing more than a handful of temporary camps, a whole lot of tests, supplies, but mostly Salaries.
Cut the red tape, and give him the Fracking Vaccine. Once that fire gets contained, then The Obama Administration can go back to throwing up all those "Safety concerns", until they get enough "Contributions", to allow for full FDA approval.
Even though Obama skin color may happen to resemble many of the victims, it doesn't have anything to do with Business. Democrat, politics is strictly business.
Remember they didn't start to fast track AIDS drugs, until Democratic children with Hemophilia contracted HIV through intravenous methods in the Nations Blood supply.
This is all about the wielding of power.
Dude....I don't know what you are looking at, but I went to the website, and Lo and Behold, it seems they need everything from VP of Sales, and Regional Directors all the way down the food chain to Regular Sales Reps. So if your so Fracking qualified, why the big deception? I don't get you at all dude.
PMI.....Just like in the U.S. It is usually the warning shot for future robust economic activity and many more better than expected reports, plus real price action, earnings, job growth, and expansion to come. As China moves, so too does the World. JMHO.
Dude, I hate to break this to you publicly, but the 50 day happens to be at 14.41. And the 200 day is sitting under it quite comfortably at 13.98. The stock has a number of Bullish catalyst's and semi-catalyst's coming its way, over the next Three to six months, which is why both the analyst projections and the options chain have placed such a heavy premium on its equity going forward.
Launch's are NEVER easy, these companies ALWAYS stumble, and yet KERX has quite an optimistic following, with less than factual data at every level.
I believe you are spot on. Also believe that the four guys who responded in this thread are all making valid points. This Company's stock price is certainly not driven by the "Magnetic" personality of its executive corps. However, diligence, hard work, focus, and attention to detail makes up for a Lot of "Razzle-Dazzle", in the long run.
Eventually, the next generation of Phones will be adopted, and Consumers will realize that Sapphire is to Glass, what Glass was to cheap plastic coatings. Then all of this pre-growth angst will seem like teenage hormones gone amok, as the company matures.
Dump the fracking thing at the first sign of hysteria laden rumors from over excited short pumpers before Apple even got to Launch their I-phone 6, and new product line of watches. Apple is a serious company that has a history of finding ways to making the transition easy for regular people to adopt new technology quickly, and on a large scale. Which is why they command high prices from their customers.
Analysts are jacking up their price targets, dude, and the company hasn't even reported the lamest of the Kardashian Quarters........Imagine the impact as the 2nd half rolls up on all those negative haters, who are salivating at the idea of an overbought condition........But, only to see their hopes and dreams crushed by that Beautiful Greek Goddess's kibosh.......:)
Whiting bought KOG as a Prophylactic, against a takeover, That means that the Oil patch is heating up for real. He isn't just talking out his buttcheeks when he said that. He still knows a bunch of M&A guys at Goldman, and people are allowed to talk. Forget the P/E, and look at fwd. multiple's in a low interest rate environment, with a commodity, that lines with and stays above the rate of inflation. If the fed is behind the curve......Every Oil producer will scream. Those that are outperforming their peers will scream the loudest, and strongest.
How much do some you Biz wiz, guys think its worth. And don't forget to throw in a $1.50 per share premium for the management dude.....It seems to me that the last few quarters these guys earned it.
Well lookey its been getting clobbered two days earlier than all the other boys and girls......Its only fitting it should bounce back first, especially considering the sh$tstorm brewing in the middle east dude. BTW...I like that lookey word....:)
Why are so many on this board angry at two analyst's who basically wrote an opinion which said almost the exact same thing?
Doesn't anyone stop to think anymore?
Where did they get this information? Who benefits the most from a weakened GTAT? Why would they do something like this so close to AAPL's launch of their new products?
I have been around a very long time, and it never ceases to amaze me the naiveté of so many so-called hardened traders. It is obvious as a clear blue sky, that this was a purposeful, and intentional "Data", leak from Apple.
Why? The cause is rather simple, really. GTAT has a technology which AAPL needs a lot of, and it does not want to have to either "Pay up" for it, nor go running to its competitors. So what better way to keep the GTAT story down prior to the product launch, and make sure that GTAT does not gain TOO much traction as its own growth story, prior to experiencing true earnings in its own right, than feeding a couple of analyst's some raw data, that can be easily be mis-interpreted?
AAPL needs to keep its margins down, and at the same time make spectacular products. That is not so easy.
Trader's need to think for themselves, and they need to predict that companies may behave in not so honorable manners with these pimps of paper in order to protect their interests. Then act accordingly.
He is negative on every single Bio-tech that has the potential to shake up the status quo. There is not a single instance where the potential for a severe disruption to "Large Bio Tech Pharma's" stranglehold on the R&D pipeline, to Big Pharma gets a positive review by him.
Until a start-up gets a partnership, or kisses the right bottoms, or pays off the right people this creep will not right anything positive. If a Company has the "Stones" to stand up to him and fight back, such as NWBO, somehow magically a bunch of Suits come out of the fracking woodwork.
This Fracking #$%$ sucking bottom dweller, is the vermin of the earth.
Are comparing apple's to green beans, and have zero business being in an Individual stock, unless they are doing so from a purely general, and critical point of view.
The commonalities are few, except as far as Bio-Tech firm. All these other so-called knucklehead Parallel universe comp people belong in Mutual funds. Or better yet, T-Bills.
Most of you guys, that are caught like Deer in the headlights, because you failed to pay attention to the World around you, need only concern yourselves with #9.
"9. North American energy producers ex renewables. "We've deleted our shorts on the Australian and Canadian dollars, which have risen as investors anticipate faster growth in China and increased demand for commodities," he writes. "For the same reason, we've deleted our shorts on commodities, especially copper."
It has been my experience that when such a gross miscalculation on the part of investors becomes perceived as a harsh reality, a sense of urgency may very well take place among those vigorously attempting to take "Risk off", during the same period of time, thus driving Stocks such as WLT, to unimaginable heights, merely because of the size of the short position, and that they happen to be a "niche commodity" stock.
After Sandy GNRC became a surprise growth stock, due to unexpected demand, for a variety of reasons, not the least of which were a almost comical degree of incompetence in the Nation's Capital, when it came to Energy systems, and subsystems. Combined with a complete one-eighty mirror opposite from the management at Generac.
They executed so well at every aspect of the entire enterprise, that all Wall St. could do every Quarter, was shake their heads, wring their hands, and say...."Who are those guy's....?"
After 5 Quarters in a row, of earnings, and expectations beats, the Company experienced a stumble.
One miss, does not turn a growth company into a "Value" company. However, "Comma" two in a row....Absolutely does.
This is the single most important Quarter in Generac's entire Fracking Life!
They had better blow this one out of the park, dude.
My own take, is that at least one very large short position, didn't even hesitate, at around 3:45 P.M. they just started covering at the market. I rarely seen a tail that long after two full candles of selling pressure (15 min.) after such an announcement.
On Monday morning I expect to see a strong open, or maybe even a gap up open followed by intense covering, which may bring in sellers, or may even cause further short covering. This could get intense.
