    Today is end of 2nd QTR

    Daily short interest ratio yesterday was 64.6%. Imagine where we would have ended without this going on.

    Sentiment: Strong Buy

  • The Socialist Prime Minister threatened to quit if they voted yes. Good. He's a disaster.

    Sentiment: Strong Buy

  • Don't get me going on the level of irresponsibility of our government. It is enormous, to say the least, But we do have a $17 trillion gdp that luckily - but maybe not forever - can at least cover the debt service. We also don't have half the work force on government payrolls, another 25% on government pensions, retirement at 40 and tax avoidance equal to 25% of what should be collected. Let's face it, Greece is a train wreck.

    Sentiment: Strong Buy

  • On one hand I have no sympathy for the Greeks, who retire at 40 on public pensions, half of which are government "employees", seem to have little to no work ethic and have voted themselves free money for decades - by borrowing $250 billion. It would be the equivalent of South Carolina borrowing $250 billion. On the other hand, who were the idiots that lent $250 billion to an irresponsible bunch of credit junkies. Who's next?

    Profits on the retail end should be much higher with larger gasoline spreads and spring and summer travel having ramped up substantially. We may get up to the $1.25 range, especially with the $50 million non-recurring.

    I guess they are still selling out of positions. Thought it would have ended on Friday. Short sales volume ratio was 57% so our shorts are still piling on.

    If "he #$%$" was that good "he #$%$" would be running the trading room at Goldman Sachs. I think not. More likely cleaning the rest rooms at the local 7 11.

    Well, they already said they are pursuing partnerships so it's a given - just waiting for the who, what and when it gets rolling. I suspect there are two distinct types of partnerships on the table - product development and product marketing. Either one should give us a lift.

    IBB (and all of the other index funds Insmed is in) gets shorted and Insmed gets shorted by default, so shares short rises. On the other side, Insmed has not gotten hit anywhere near as bad as the indexes - which means that people are buying Insmed shares which, in turn, counteracts the shorting and allows us to stay in pretty good shape. That's my thought. On the flip side, if or when investors start covering their shorts of the index funds we will get a boost on top of any direct buying of shares. We are now into Q3 buying and, hopefully, the games being played on the index funds will abate.

    The last few weeks have been driven by some institutions cashing out their positions, index funds rebalancing their funds, new or existing institutions opening or adding to positions, etc. In addition, we still have our "big short" doubling down even as the share price rises as well as the spillover from hedge funds shorting the index funds like IBB. And yet here we sit within 2% or so of the high for many, many years. All in all, we've done pretty well. Hopefully selling pressure is over for the time being and new owners will continue to add to their positions this quarter.

    Complete nonsense. 50% cure rate for NTM at 180 days where no other product is approved or even exists. Pull your head out. I suggest you double down on your shorts. We can use the fuel when the share price gaps up. Please post your short trades for all of us to see and get a laugh out of.

    What if?

    Williams Company just received an unsolicited bid from ETE that was rejected. Analysts immediately downgraded Williams and now the discussion is about not if but when and for how much Williams will be taken out. We may see the same thing unfold here at some point, especially as we approach marketing approval. Then we all get to see what the folks who really know value the long term prospects of the company at. In the meantime, these types of potential actions always leak at some level so we may get the slow and steady rise into something along these lines occuring.

    That likely means our big short can't get anymore shares to short and can't keep a short squeeze from happening now by continuing to double down. Hopefully, shorts are about to get screwed royally.

    Apparently you do. So, here's how I quit calling you out. Quit doing the following: quit posting your always correct claims of trades that Goldman Sachs couldn't pull off; quit calling posters like biowatchdog liars; quit accusing everyone but yourself of using fake ids (very few - besides you and your 34 + fakes); quit calling people Cathy (who the heck is Cathy and why do we care); quit claiming you live at the beach in California while you post at 3:00 am, 4:00 am California time; quit saying surfs up - It makes you look like a moron.; quit reposting the same nonsense over and over while deleting the prior posts; make your points but quit salting them with weird stuff; talk in complete sentences for once; and use proper grammar. Do all of this and we have a nice board with intelligent comments again. These are the terms and conditions of the armistice.

    Repost from Biowatchdog:
    This will probably be served up as cow dung by our friendly basher (who is long and short and trades constantly and up 100000% or whatever)

    Since we know the 120-Day Qs are up for approval to send this week with the SI and the timeline update (yes, they always send a timeline update, if only to show the current schedule), here is my stab at the schedule:
    6/26 – 120 day questions approved and sent to Insmed. Clock Stop.
    7/16 – Insmed responds.
    7/17 - Clock Start.
    9/24 – 180 day questions approved and sent to Insmed. Clock Stop.
    10/14 – Insmed responds.
    10/15 – Clock Start.
    10/19-10/22 – Orals
    11/26 – CHMP issues positive opinion
    1/26/16 – EMA approves

    The EMA approval actually works out on the timeline for the Feb 2016 meeting, but I think this is all going to go very smoothly. In fact, I would not be surprised if we bypass the 180-day Qs.

    Would there be more price action on a November positive opinion from the CHMP or a February EMA approval?

    Repost from be_leaguered
    :How the heck do you come off believable with a positive scenario for INSM? Just a few short months ago, you were predicting a price of $7, along the lines of Wedbush's loser analyst. You told us this was a period in which the price would flounder or plummet. How can you even show your face here, when you are only pretending to know what's going behind the scenes you can never see.

    Hard to figure out why anyone would be doubling down given the great results, impending authorization and shortened timeline to sales at great margins. Someone is spending a lot of money to keep the stock from running.

    He'll fake id thumbs down you big time now. I think Yahoo now makes him/her/it log out and then log back on as one of his/her/its fake ids now. That's why it takes him/her/it so long to thumb you down. No more switching ids quickly. Give him/her/it a little credit though - he#$%$ is absolutely dedicated to being a complete idiot.
