Always @ 10:30 AM Eastern..... CNBC usually comments on it within 5 minutes of the report.
Kel............holding UNG from 6.58
Didn't see any strikes that high. So, you're looking for a BO at over $300 by June 17th. Very aggressive.
Kel...........holding ICPT as of today @ 151.67
Is the ALR deal officially dead? Lawyers are lining up there and their books are a mess. Am long ABT @ 37.70 for a LT hold.
Bought some ABT a few weeks ago @ 37.70. It looks like they're trying to extract themselves from the ALR (Alere) acquisition. Apparently ALR is having some problems filing financial statements. Will have their hands full anyway with the STJ (St. Jude Medical) acquisition. It's expected to be acretive to EPS in '17 and '18. Will need to do a share issuance though. Deal is for $25 billion cash.
Did nibble on some ICPT today around $151. Just got a big FDA approval and it looks like a likely takeover candidate by perhaps GILD and a few others.
Have stayed away from BDCs for several months now.
US...........about 90,000 cases.....one person in each 5000. More prevalent in Black and Hispanics.
WORLDWIDE......about 3.2 million cases with about 80% of them in sub-Saharan Africa. Also prevalent in India.
........caused about 176,000 deaths in 2013.
There will come a time when the rallies don't fail. There'll be no notice of when / which rally that is. This could be the one to hold. Fundamentals are shifting below our feet, moving gradually in the positive direction due mainly to production cutbacks by producers. I intend to remain a holder of UNG. Got in @ $6.58 a few weeks ago. Normally I'd be a trader of UGAZ, but chose UNG this time as I fully intend to stick with the long position for quite awhile.
I live on the SE side of Green Bay, actually in Bellevue. Within 5 driving minutes are a Home Depot, A Menard's, and a Fleet Farm.
From .28 up to .35.
I bought it about 2 years ago @ 45.02 (closed Friday @ 80.35). Solicited opinions on this board at that time whether to buy LOW or HD (Home Depot). Some liked LOW better and others preferred HD. Didn't figure it out, but they've both done quite well. I will continue to hold LOW.
Actual cash loss in Q 1 was about $7.1 million. Ended Q 1 with $138 mil of cash. They also said they expect to end 2016 with cash in the range of $123 - 143 million.
Point is.........they could easily do some "bolt on" acquisitions. Acquire products from other companies that fit into their areas of expertise. Lots of good uses for their cash hoard. Just hope they don't spend it unwisely.
