    Less than 21% of all stocks are above their respective 200 day MA's.

    Your ID was created on 8/10/15. So, tell us how many times since then constitutes "anytime LTS makes a recommendation!"

    You see, your problem is that you think you are so much smarter than you really are. That's been the undoing of most criminals, and probably all small time punks like yourself.

    Okay, I've wasted quite enough time on you; go play with some people of your own intellectual level and just quit here. You are not ADEQUATE.

    Still the Rodney Dangerfield

    Oh, 16? 19 sounds better. But what about poor ol' TSRO? Up a measly 3.31%?

    Call me a conspiracy theory nutjob or what you will, but there is a lot of money that has been stupidly bet the wrong way. And being a LOT of money, with apparently a LOT more behind that (at zero interest), they are too proud to quit.

    Quit they will. We just don't know when. What we have here is a market of volatility. Naz down 140 points yesterday and up 113 points today. For the fans of disco music, the tune "Roller Coaster" comes to mind.

    It's a giant game of "hide the salami." Both sides are getting fleeced in a single day, and the algo boyz are making tons of money. The people who are manipulating this market will make a ton of money, as they always do. Eventually, things will normalize, as they always do.

    As a final note, to those who ask why, the answer is the same as it always was: b/c they can.

    Initially they did. Due to IPO and 2ndary offering(s?), OPK now owns ~1%.

    Check Yahoo headlines for TSRO. The PR is there. Not so on OPK...yet.

    "Under the terms of the agreement OPKO is eligible for payments of up to $121 million, including an up-front payment and additional payments based upon achievement of specified regulatory and commercialization milestones; and will receive double digit tiered-royalties on sales. TESARO and OPKO will share future profits from the commercialization of licensed products in Japan and OPKO will have an option to market the products in Latin America. In addition, OPKO will acquire a 10% equity position in TESARO. "

    The full 121M is payable when commercialization is done. No doubt there will be a payment on this FDA approval milestone, but I don't know exactly what it will be.

    No, you're absolutely right. MNKD gets FDA approval of Afrezza on 6/27/14 and closes at 10 bucks. It is now trading at 3.7x.

    OREX gets FDA approval of Contrave on 9/10/14 where it was trading around 6 bucks. And promptly dropped to 3.43 on 10/10/14. And it is now trading around 2.6x.

    Companies can LOSE a helluva lot more than 45% AFTER FDA approval.

    The people who short biotechs are persistently vicious over the short haul. Eventually, things work out as they should. That's the nature of the "market." Thing is, nothing ever works the same way all of the time, and that's the nature of the "market."

    The nature of THIS "market" is the withdrawal of the retail crowd leaving the algos to battle amongst themselves. The retail crowd buys when stocks are going up. Home buyers buy homes when mortgage rates start going up. That's just the way it is, and the way it has always been.

    And it's all cyclical.

    Ah ha. Finally the dawn comes. Which of your favorite bureaucracies works on ANY Saturday? Okay, there is the USPS, but aside from that, what is left? And 9/5, as I have mentioned numerous times before, is not just any Saturday but a a Saturday that starts a 3 day weekend.

    Unless you are married to some functionary at the FDA, you can't possibly believe that 9/5 is anything but a day away from DL'ng porn. So, it will be 9/4, or before, or 9/8, or after.

    Calendar, people. Get one. Use it. Not to mention common sense.

    Not to be contentious, but the MM's don'r run the market. Long ago, the market changed in many meaningful ways. People spent billions of dollars drilling through hills to get a straight line so their fat pipes could get their trades to the exchanges a nanosecond faster than the next guy. We went from trading fractions to decimals. One needs to think hard about that one. And then there became the thing called Direct Market Access(DMA). DMA was where a MM would "rent" his identity to anybody who could pay the rent. Hence, some hedgefund, or cabal of such, could represent that they were acting as a MM.

    You have to go back to when MM's made money by the spread of the bid and ask. That went out the door when decimal trading took the stage. And then, one must ask oneself why would MM's want to make it easier for shorts to cover than to lose. What's in it for them?

    Bottom line, it's not the MMs anymore. It's the algo trading machines who can, via DMA, appear to be MM's. This not a marketplace of people anymore, and it hasn't been for a long time.

    That's the bad news. The good news is that anybody who, shall we say, is a minnow in this sea of sharks, and can still make a buck, is some kind of hero. The odds, courtesy of the SEC and FINRA and CONgress, are stacked against us. If we manage to prevail, we are, IMO, Super Heroes. FWIW

    Again with the "on September 5." 9/5 is a Saturday. 9/7 is Labor Day, it's a 3-day holiday weekend already over here let me tell you (bada bing bada bang). There will either be a determination on Friday, 9/4, or on Tuesday, 9/8.

    Ain't nobody in the gummint going to work on a Saturday, let alone a Saturday that kicks off a 3-day weekend.

    I must be a freakin' genius as I am the only one who has noted this goofball date and commented on it (more than twice). Or....maybe in this whole wide world, I am the only one who possesses a calendar (or looks at it).

    Rayaldee competitor?

    Yes, and I give silverplatinum credit for being well informed on this subject. He said Rayaldee is not intended to prevent dialysis. And so nobody claimed it was so far.

    Thing is......maybe it might.

    Aside from being administered by IV vs a pill? Well, there's this:
    "Sensipar is not indicated for use in adult patients with CKD who are not on dialysis because of an increased risk of hypocalcemia. "
