This company has shown profitable in 2 quarters in a row, although not much. Revenue each quarter is $100 mil, and portable devices only become more predominant. Hence, there is absolutely no reason for longs to sell at this point, where it is near lowest. The shorts on the other hand will lose on interest if they continue to hold positions; thus, they will cover and most likely this will stabilize around 18-19 in a few months.
it hasn't actually launched yet. You don't launch a drug without PR and advertisements, you might as well sell Afrezza from your basement.
news flash, we are 8 months beyond FDA approval. WE see some newbies here already; i guess the cheap price is attracting bottom dwellers.
Exubera sold for $2 bil but didn't have the rapid onset like AFrezza and the inhaler for Afrezza is small and discrete (not the size of a bong). Exubera did not come with technosphere. MY sell price is at least $4-5 billion. I think they should just sell it to another BP, and cancel SNY and their sand bagging effort on Afrezza sells.
this will end all the drama. Enough is enough with 10 years of drama. Anything below market cap of $2 bil is cheap; I think if mnkd is sold, its value is easily $4-5 billion at least. Thus, we are trading at half bottom value for BO.
Exubera was sold for $2 bil and didn't have the rapid onset and the device was big and clunky. And they didn't have technosphere. Thus, mnkd is extremely under value.
Russian president Putin is talking with OPEC, what do you think will happen? "Cut your production or I will blow up your oil fields" The rally this morning may be the result of heavy buying from Opec countries, believe me these guys invest.
Opec countries are buying stocks and will cut production. OPEC also had a talk with Putin; what do you think Putin will say? "Cut down or I will blow up your oil fields"
$10 billions in assets, or someone will buy it. Look at the trend of Sdrl revenue over the last few years, revenue continued to go up. May have been lower currently due to low oil price but production continues to improve.
demand always increases during the summer and the wars in the middle east currently will help oil price as they are blowing oil fields into flames. The russian economy isn't really good without high oil price, any guess if the Russians may supply arms or even launch a rocket or two at major oil fields in the midst of all these fightings?
Still very profitable and when oil bounces to the $60-70/barrel, so will sdrl shares. Oil is only consumer, not made. Why do you think every country is stock piling? Even the US stockpile at 80 yr record, it's only enough to supply the US consumption for 4 weeks or the world for 1 week. That's not stockpile, that's an emergency storage.
they have cash and still profitable. Even if they need cash, uncle sam will bail them out. The US placed huge effort to be energy independent of OPEC. Buy with both hands.
i bet anything there was a big disagreement on how they would partner up with SNY. But Al Mann chose this path because he was the CEO, which caused alot of conflicts in the group. Hence, most insiders sold because they didn't believe SNY would honor the effort in Afrezza launch and sells. Al Mann may be a good scientist but not a good businessman. Maybe he is too trusting; perhaps too arrogant thinking that 65% would force SNY to do their best.
who ever said Alfred Mann isn't concerned about money is a liar. He's penny pinching. He saw an opportunity not having to advertise would save him money and he took the bait. Now SNY has the ball in their court and they decide the faith of mnkd. Afred Mann never had control of his company; he is incompetant. First it was the FDA who pushed him around for nearly 5 years, then when we finally thought that Al Mann would get control back but he gave it all up to SNY for a few million$ in saving.
BTW if I was making the decision, I would make SNY pick up manufacturing cost and I would do my own advertisement. With good advertisements and SNY sales force; SNY can't slow it down even if they try.
advertisement isn't that expensive my friend. even the superbowl only costs $4 mil for every 30 secs. If they run ads on TV now, it would cost more than $10 million for day time to capture those baby boomers sitting at home with their diabetes. Advertisement is cheap compared to the money they had spent already.
IF you are trying to sell your company or your product, why in the world would you allow your potential buyer to advertise for you? Are these guys really this dumb? Runing a company and getting FDA approval, but lacking common sense. It's the dumbest business move I have seen in a long long time.
What they should have done was advertise themselves so that they can get the words out to patients and docs and get competitive bidders. Get value for AFrezza. You don't allow your buyer to praise how good your product is; what were they smoking when they made this deal? Alzheimer is setting in early for Alfred Mann.
Now, mnkd is stuck! SNY doesn't want to advertise or have a massive launch because they fear competitive biddings.
What a joke, all these talks about oil inventories rising but do we really know what it really means? The planet consumes 78-85 mil barrels each day. So the US inventory is good for a week supply world wide, 2-3 weeks US usage alone.
Oil will be back up to $150 per barrel once OPEC caught on w the manipulations
