    More than likely RAX will be sold at a lower price than $50.
    The better option is RAX have to slowly rise back to 50 (if that is possible).
    Boy did RAX get oversold or the marketmaker let it side over over 50 to under 25 (more than 50%).
    Look for 2016 for better results

    placed a buy order at $70

    Assuming 67-70 is the lows for BG, how high will stock price go before reversal.
    Next earnings should give a clue if there is a bounce later this month.
    There's a pullback and almost all stocks near its 52-week lows, BG no exception.
    Many who bought at 70 will sell at 75...but if you are holding, in 2016 could see recovery 80-85 (maybe)

    The big question is how low will HHC go in this corrective market.
    My guess is wil hold above 100.
    Whose driving down the price - institutions?
    Most likely since they are the ones responsible for driving the price higher.
    Hold, pray, and/or buy more, waiting for the bounce back to 140-180 some day in 2016.

    Abbvie Acquisition or buy out?

    Earlier this year ABBV bought Pharmacyclics for over $21B - therefore, unlikely to buy another mega billion company IMO so soon. I give it a 5% probability of this happening.

    In some situations there are rumors of a mega pharma mergers feelers for ABBV and others like BMY.

    No one has stepped up to the plate yet, but likely before year-end 2015.

    Hold ABBV for the dividend.

    If market correction continues almost all stocks go lower, ABBV included.

    Should market go flat to higher, ABBV should see 80+ in 2016 with good eps and products down the pipeline.

    GILD technical

    Information only good for the day traders next 1-5 days.
    I'm more interested on GILD high or low before the end of 12/31/15.
    Assume a recovery market higher, then GILD should also go over 120.
    Better yet, waiting for reaction on the mega-company GILD will buy if Wall St reacts positive or negative.

    Timing is everything as the saying goes.
    Just wondering when you bought your FARM shares $6.50-$9,00 range.
    Must have been only the last 5 years when its stock traded at its lows in 2012 instead of 8 years ago when it traded over 20.
    Forward looking, maybe the move to TX and change of scenery will help its stock price higher.
    There are always vultures out there also looking for bargains like FARM.
    Small cap and doesn't trade that many shares.

    Come Thursday 9/17 after 2 PM FEDS will decide to increase rates by 1/4% or not raise.
    Many incline to believe a rate hike will result in trading on the downside.
    No rate increase can also result in the downside (rates will rise before 12/31/15 ends).
    Positive forward-statements will have the impact of higher markets.
    Looking for SSO to recover to 60-65 before year-end.
    Whatever, what a way to close 2015 #$%$&P500 flat to lower unless Christmas comes early.

    Many waiting to see the next GILD purchase and will react by sending its share price higher or lower.
    Company GILD purchase should result in new drugs approval by FDA...
    Market correction, slower revenue growth can push share price lower as it is perceived now from high of 123.
    No guarantees in life.

  • joetong419 joetong419 Sep 15, 2015 11:20 AM Flag

    You must be a short-term trader...
    By end of 12/31/15 AGN could be higher or lower than 300.
    AGN under 300 if market correction continues.
    If market correction over AGN could see higher price 350-400.
    Many other issues working in the background...AGN to get bigger by buying key companies, or AGN to get offer to be purchased and higher stock price.
    Best way to go is buy at lower share prices, hold and wait for appreciation.
    Doesn't work for all stocks but should for AGN with Saunders in control.

    No rush...why Monday?
    Before the end of the year 12/31/15

  • joetong419 by joetong419 Sep 11, 2015 2:21 PM Flag

    there was a run-up in price with the first dividend to 119;
    next week it made the 52-week high of 123.
    Then came the market pullback and now GILD trading about 15 bucks lower from highs.
    All waiting for GILD to say which company it will buy.
    If Wall St. likes the news, GILD stock goes higher (over 115?).
    A bad deal will obviously do the opposite.
    Company purchase should happen by 12/31/15.
    Stay tune

    With oil trading near its low, MUR also follows.
    Oil prices trying to bounce off its lows and all oil-related stocks the same.
    Next several quarter earnings are in the red - are the chances div sustained, cut or eliminated?
    2016 2nd half of the year was projected higher oil prices 60-70 made earlier this year.
    This might be overly too high.
    Watching to see if MUR lows 26.xx has been made and a return to over 40 in 2016

    Monday 8/24/15 was panic selling...get me out at the market price.
    However, the low VHT price of 91.31 went that low?
    Looking forward, wondering if there will be a repeat of 8/24/15 and VHT goes to, say 70s.
    This is one of the better long-term ETFs...short-term can have wild swings.
    The wiser decision is buy one dips and ride it out over the years?

    XPO implied share price is currently $11 per share

    by ziippitty Aug 25, 2015 10:56 AM
    joetong419 joetong419 Aug 25, 2015 11:27 AM Flag

    Can you provide a time frame when you believe XPO will hit $11.
    With this massive correction the markets lately, I was surprised XPO didn't go down more to the 20s.
    Timing like you say is everything...some hold shorts for over 6 months before realizing the target price.
    XPO could easily have a bounce back to 40+...depending on this snapback rally.

    BOUGHT 10K AT 6.60 AVG

    My hunch is you already sold for a profit bottom-fishing.
    You can confirm and at what price you sold for since it is now trading over 7.
    Many are wondering how much of a dead-cat bounce RYAM has left in it 8 to 10?
    Will Eastman Chemical be successful in its lawsuit to get out of the contract for lower prices - if it did others will do the same.
    Therefore, watch tomorrow's RYAM stock price if it goes higher or another leg down or 6 is as low it goes.
    Looking forward to 2016 to estimate RYAM stock price and high will it peak.

    If you have a position in TAL, you can dollar-cost average at lower prices.
    However, the bottom hasn't been determined.
    TAL leveled off for awhile in the 30s, but then drifted lowers to 20s, now teens.
    Maybe history will repeat during the 2007-08 period, early 2009 close at single digits to over 50.

    Courey played hardball and lost.
    Didn't want to sell out to TEVA and out of a job.
    Played hardball and also wanted higher price which TEVA got another better offer.
    Wall St. feels PRGo marriage isn't the answer to grow the company and see $70/share soon.
    You are most likely correct - could be 3 or 4 years if MYL stock price goes to 70.
    Best outcome is MYL shareholders walk away from PRGO and auction itself to highest bidder.
    Better yet - PRGO rejects for a higher offer and see what happens.

    Wonder if anyone in CBS is shorting the stock

    joetong419 joetong419 Aug 17, 2015 10:03 AM Flag

    CBS news story is a repeat...but unlikely inaccurate.
    LL high-flyer has crashed because of the situation and sales growth is broken.
    Looks like LL stock headed to single digits within a couple of months.

  • joetong419 joetong419 Aug 17, 2015 2:45 AM Flag

    GILD should move higher when management informs shareholders which big company they propose to buy with the spare cash.

    I'm expecting this to occur before 12/31/15.

    Just my 2 cents....

    Why is Abbvie not performing better?

    other biotechs in the same boat as their stock price hasn't skyrocketed (GILD for example).
    Market consolidation and biotechs in particular flat.
    As time march forward toward end of 1215, assume market has a leg up, ABBV sees 75-80.
    Good enough? In 2016 over 85.
    ABBV mentioned as potential acquirer for another biophrama company (AGN - one of a few).
    Hold for the dividend.
