Bought some @ 5.53. Long history with SunOpta / Stake Tech.......over 15 years off and on, mostly off lately. Looks good at this price if they can turn things around in 2016. By the 49 cent EPS estimate for '16, looks like the analysts still are believers. Biggest Bison still here?
When I held AVNR............they received EU approval of their US approved drug (Nuedexta) and sat on it for 2 years without doing anything to develop that market. They're gone now, have been acquired.. Never found out if they were going to develop the EU themselves or try to partner. EU is a vastly different situation from the US market.
Approval may be a universal EU type thing, but bringing a product to market there necesitates dealing with each different country regarding insurance, pricing, etc.
Again today. Some of those beaten badly like KMI and EPD are a little more solid today. Now some of the lesser names getting thrown out with the bathwater today.
Bought a little MLPL @ 26.34 (2 X MLPs fund).
Just got in @ 4.156. Been watching for months. They need a partner for the fragmented EU market.
May be some bargains for those so inclined. No direct holdings there, just some small positions in ETFs and CEFs of that type. Many down 3-4%.......KMI, EPD, etc.
Bought some CLGRF 2 days ago @ 47 cents. Small gold miners with numbers that look OK. Have traded HL here and there. Really gets around....up and down.
SFY must be a required holing as Fidelity has index funds and SFY must be a component of the index. Fidelity doesn't buy stocks as investments I don't think. Not the business they're in.
Sold AMGN near the close @ 146.15. Managed a small profit after being a few $$ lower down below $143.00. Sounds like Hill's ideas are same old stuff. Diverting attention from her numerous other FELONIES.
Read the story from Barron's under AMGN news. Sounds like old, warmed over ideas. She tries to divert attention from her other failings, many as they are.

Sold my 10 K of AEZS last Friday. Was down 50%, back to a slight profit when I sold. Just watching KERX.
Just bought 100 AMGN @ 145.23. Trading around a smaller core position. Just looking for a pop if Hill's proposal is so ridiculous that it's summarily dismissed.
Declared on Sept. 21, after the close...
FEI raised to .1183, was .1167
FPL raised to .1050, was .1033
Both x-div on Oct.1 and pay on Oct 15th.
Kel...............holding FEI for almost 3 years
CLGRF @ 46 cents. Just refinanced their debt at favorable rates. Nice cash position, almost equal to their debt. Producing positive cash flow from gold mining operations that are all in Canada. I bought some today.
Kel..............an SFY observer
I believe something in the area of 23% of natgas production is a by-product of drilling for oil. Big cutbacks have taken place in NG capex too.
Then announced she'd have a "new plan" to combat high drug prices. Does she also have a plan to make companies innovate when there's no reward for spending billions of $$ to develop a new drug?
Probably not I'd guess. Phony, plastic B*&%CH.
