I formerly kept track of my stock portfolios on Yahoo. Recently , they have not allowed me to add newly purchased stocks making the board useless to me for tracking my investments. Not too serious, as my interactive broker keeps such records. However, I like Yahoo news and message boards, although, the message boards contain a high number of useless SPAM posts. This may be my browser but lately I am getting a frequent 'Yahoo failed to respond" and "due to a long running script" message. Complaining to Yahoo is useless. The changes are cutting down considerably on my use of the Yahoo site. Why the change in the finance page? Anybody have comments or advice?
I don't understand you proponents of the no profit pharmaceutical companies. Your best hope is they get bought out by big pharma. Maybe Sanofi, in this case. However, their strategy seems to be to minimize risk. I ,for one, believe in diversification. I don't have more than 10% of my portfolio in any one issue. I believe in investing in the no profit pharma companies by buying 5 with substantial institutional investment (they have done my DD) and hoping one makes it big and 3 will break even with one failure. Meanwhile, I have serious doubts about Afrezza. I presently have a bad cold with cough. Would Afrezza be effective? What about insurance companies? Over and over again they refuse to pay for the best therapy when there are effective, cheaper alternatives. Compare co-pays of Novolog and Lantus, my co-pays are $90 per month compared with $10 a month with Novolin alone.
Interesting. I get the same feeling about the unreasonable pumpers. "Sell LLY and NVO as they will be out of the insulin business. Load up on MNKD and you will be a millionaire."
Call a local endocrinologist and ask his/her opinion.
I agree with you about the auction farce. I sold August covered calls with a 12 strike price to take advantage of speculator excitement, I still believe in WEN actions regarding franchise and company stores and think that this stock will see 15 in the next year. The $15 minimum for fast food workers, as I understand it,will be introduced over 6 years. I, as a former business man, can figure ways to reduce the impact.
Gee!! you're willing to buy about 15% blow the 52 week low. Are you sure you have the right stock? Maybe you're one of the Affrezza idiots who thinks NOV is Nova-Nordisk.
I think there is more upside than down side risk at 75. We still have one more month of summer to go though. I just bought at 75,10. Incidentally, the fact that Yahoo does not allow me to track my portfolio and the amount of silly A double scribble spam on these boards has me feeling that involvement is a total waste of time and effort.
I used to buy into these no profit bio-techs. The only ones I made money on were those bought out by mainline big pharma. I do not believe this possible with MNKD as a 65% interest in Affreza has already been sold to Sanofi. What else does MNKD have? Some over enthusiastic pumpers one of whom does not know the difference between NOV and NVO.
I see the formation of a tea cup with a handle. This tells me the PPS will level off at 26.50 where it will remain until the next big move. Again, I ask the question previously asked, What do you see?
For the sake of your portfolio, I hope some company buys ut Mannkind. This is the only way you will make money on these no profit biotechs Lots of sizzle and no steak!
I note you have 37 posts all of which pump VPCO. This stock has a price range between $1 and $22 and is currently selling for $1.46. How much are you making per pump message? It's stuff like this which make these boards next to useless.
Cover now!!! Based on a dumb analysts views of over valuation while increasing the price target.
This is the way to make money. Waite for some dumb analyst to kick the feces out of a stock for no reason (valuation while raising the target price), buy and hold. Watch the stock recover as long as the market as a whole remains steady.
Interestingly, I sold August 60/s covered calls some 3 months ago. The stock was not called away before ex-dividend. As far as the Shire "deal" goes, some geniuses figured that this would be a good tax dodge. They couldn't have believed this would enhance ABBV business or they would not have paid the breakup fee. With such a business decision based solely on the tax code which could change at any time, some people should be looking for new jobs.
