Hmmm....."YAHOO has let a good investment tool go completely to...."
Really? You consider this forum a good investment tool? No offense but are you OUT of your mind? Or maybe it's just me. This is NOT an good investment tool (to me). Hell...it ain't even a tool to use for ANY consideration other than loose suggestions and such. It's a free posting forum wherein folks who play talk about what they're doing and thinking. Hopefully it stays on topic...though clearly the attention span of some......wanders? ;-)
But should Yahoo fold tomorrow I could continue to play this game juuuust fine. However if Bloomie, et.al., folded...well...THEN you'd hear some squealing from my side...
Current bid $13.45.
That turn-out, on both sides, is pathetic. According to the 2016 stat's from the Office of Nevada State Secretary Barbara Cegavske there are 1, 203,905 registered voters. A huge chunk of them in Clark county. Let me repeat that number: 1,203,905.
So how many voted? That's beyond pathetic. I'm not picking on Nevada since the other State's haven't been any better. Anyway...it does make me wonder why they don't set these voting days up to occur on a Saturday...not that it'd make a difference...but it might "enhance" things a bit....make the turn out a bit less pathetic? Amazing...the power of the vote...and the majority of American's don't use it....unless in not using they're making a statement? Heh!
Meanwhile....to more pertinent considerations....bid $11.83...
Followed by +50 degree temp's today. Just part of the global weather weirding that's going on out there in case you didn't notice. So....what's yer point? ;-)
I'd like to think folks playing this game spread their monies around. There's ample room for MU AND SWKS. Amongst other considerations. But that's just me. I never allow my greed to cause me to bet on just one horse. Never have....never will.
Oh my god we are SAVED! Father BLOOMIE is gonna RESCUE US ALL from the clutches of the clowns and idiots that have been selected for us to vote on by his brethren one percent eliters! Halleluhah we are SAVED! Gather round all you tribes of America; BLOOMIE will show us the way to the promised land! He will smite the evil-doers and point, nay guide, us to it. Just be sure to mind his stone tablets with the proper rules of behavior.
Jezus save us....You cannot make this stuff up....
Say goodbye to the $12.teens? Too soon to conclude this out of hand...but perhaps that's the set-up. One thing seems clear...there's not much standing in the way from here to ~$13.30...excepting for the usual machinations of the chug and churn gang. Let's see how it plays...
Leaving aside the said insider is human and puts his pants on the same way as you and me I'll have to say I agree. All else being equal always pay attention to the play of the Big Kahuna. It's a big tell on future direction of the pps.
But that said I'll also say this...never go "all in" on any one position in this game. Never swing for the fences (so to speak). Always spread it (your hard earned money) around...because until the fat lady actually sings you just don't know how it all plays out. You're betting on the "come." Doing such does have it's deadly aspects....especially in the bio-tech's, the sector landscape of which is littered with the wreckage of other companies (in the day potential hi-flyers) that crashed and burned...So it could happen with OPK, too.
Regardless, for now....ain't it excitin' thinking about the potential? ;-) Bid $11.04.
The sell side just went on an "attack run" using ~225K shares to drop the bid from ~$10.75 to $10.48. I've been waiting on it manifesting because no such run goes unanswered by the opposing forces. It's just the usual market dynamics in play. I added to my position here at the ~$10.48 line. I like what I'm seeing in the action...but let's see if doing this was a smart idea or....not?
There's no mentality when it''s a machine doing the majority of the trading. A machine, in this instance, being driven by a (human) master under severe deleveraging pressure.
The question I have is a simple one. Exactly how levered were (or are) the big boys/girls of this game? 10 to 1? 20 to 1? A 100 to 1? A 1000 to 1? What? Whatever it is the market action indicates it was one well in excess of what "stand back and eval this before we do it" logic would have allowed....but that's what happens in this game. Greed and all the rest lead to Masters of the Universe putting sanity aside in pursuit of illusory profits. They build these vast crystalline structures of easy money and such...only to have it all come crashing down....right on all of us.
Not to get into this but my thinking is straightforward simple on this. World leaders, from Putin to the Pope are chiming in regarding our domestic clown circus that's come to town. Otherwise known as the American Political Process. Hey...APP!?! ;-)
Anyway...all outsiders are chiming in on OUR process. Why is that? Well...go back to my simple comment. All the other chimps in the cage are always interested in what the big gorilla in the corner is doing....seeing as how he keeps eating all the bananas....change the "chimp" term to "hominid," or more specifically, human and....well....makes sense that others on this planet would be interjecting their thoughts regarding something not their business? Seems we ain't that far removed from the days of being chimps ourselves, eh?
PM bid $12.20
I get what you're saying in a general sense...this being America where Freedom of Speech ranks right up there with the 2nd Amendment. Political Corectness in opening your mouth has never been something about which I have been fond...so....the Trumpie can stand there, pontificate, obfuscate and irritate all he likes. In the immortal words of Voltaire I'd defend his right to say what he thinks. It doesn't mean I will vote for him getting the job of running the Power Oval and representing me though. I will be doing no such thing. End of story.
What's this? I get distracted...and so, too, Master? What's this? The Poochie is off the leash and running!!!??
Bid $12.85. Run Poochie RUUUUUUUNNNNN!!? ;-)
Hmmm...interesting...somebody (on this thread) should be tellin' him that ain't a good idea?
Anyway...yesterday was (also) interesting....a positive (possibly) test of the intermediate term uptrend line. Let's see if todays continues to validate the test. G/L!
PM bid $10.03.
Cyoung: Not to wax negative on this but I trust folks recognize the time-frames involved in the bio-sector's usual Phase I/II/III/aproval process? Get back to me on this one once they've reached the approval phase....say in about 4 years? The only thing that moves slower than a glacier is this Phase process.
Toby, Toby, Toby. Can I call you Toby? Must be hell being a white conservative meth-head....at least...given the description you provide. No wonder religion plays such a prominent role in that world...I'd be praying for release/relief, too. But let me ask how it is you know this so well, and can relay it in such meticulous detail, eh? HEH!
Hmmm...check the news over there on the right...it's right there...under the "Top Stories..." Iran wants to make nice with the Saudi's? Hmmmmm....now ain't that an interesting development? The two angry kids want to get along with each other in the same sand-box? Let's see how THIS works out...could bode well....or at least..is promising? But this IS the Mid-East...don't hold yer breath...
My thoughts....too.. I'd tried to state as much earlier but...I dunno...Yahoo seems to have a problem with verbose postings? I think they do a "space count." Once you've exceeded some threshold, within as proscribed (by them) period of time, they throttle you. Or that's my impression. But hell...these threads are free....so I can't go complaining, eh? ;-)
Well...I get what you're saying...but I must point out, especially as it relates to bio-tech...that it's never a sure thing until the fat lady sings. I can point to endless examples of how she's disappointed many a bio-investor/speculator. So though it all might look to be moon-beams and rainbows....well....so far...that FDA lady...she ain't sung her song yet. Play it accordingly. Bid $10.14.
