this could be a new start for LXRX to reach it's potential.
As a stock holder, as well as many others, I'm disappointed with the going away present of the past CEO.
Of course it's not the first time for these golden parachutes to take place. But in the long run it's a good move for new blood to move this biotech company to prove it's worth.
I'll hold off on any long term sentiment since I've been burnt so many times in the past.
Consequently you could see prices rising just a little bit more. (A little humor there.)
Take a look at the chart for AA stock in the past. In a few months or less $20 a share is doable and higher still in 6-18 months.
From what I heard all the aluminum F150's are sold out for the first 6 months of production.
Other manufacturers will be providing more aluminum to their vehicles as well.
I realize that there is competition out there but AA is a much more reliable source than international producers.
I'm along term holder of AA. And have lost money with AA in the past. This time it's different.
BA will once again reach close to the $128 mark. It happens on a regular basis on many stocks who pop in the morning and lose momentum during the day.
The IM bank rumors are holding it back, but already priced in the stock. I doubt the IM bank will be closed down. There's too many major US international players who could be hurt besides BA.
I will keep my fingers crossed for the pop later today.
And I'm a strong believer of RAD doing great things. Management has amazed me on their objectives and current accomplishments over the past two years.
They are no longer turning the corner or looking at headlights of a train in the tunnel.
They have turned the corner and the light at the end of the tunnel is daylight.
After hours, price is $7.20. So even with triple volume in the last 30 minutes or so the stock didn't move from Fridays average price.
What all this means? I'm not sure. I'll leave it up to the pro's on this board to explain in detail.
I do think it was index balancing.
Bottom line. Was it good or bad for RAD!
They bought, they sold and then bought again in those last few minutes.
Those few minutes of manipulation made someone a lot of money by buying selling and buying again of millions of shares.
This is why small retail investors are at a big disadvantage. With all stocks.
Does anyone know if RAD was part of the russell rebalance? If so this explains it.
It makes sense re: MCK. But not for the stockholders. Long term RAD will be in the 20'S. A quick buy out, maybe 10-13 is as much as you can expect at this specific time frame.
Something to do about over use in the past few years.
First of all I need to make a few comments.
If AAPL was to produce a wearable that monitors blood pressure and heart beats and sends a signal to the wearer then this is big time news.
Why? Because of sudden deaths, not just by old people, but younger ones as well who could have been warned of high blood pressure and abnormal heart beats.
Many of us are just thinking of another wearable like the others that are great for athletic types and those who want to be connected for god knows how many reasons.
It's been reported that there is less than 40% of people who would be interested in the product if and when AAPL may come out with a wearable watch. Like others before them, it could be a flop.
.My bottom line is if AAPL has a product that could warn it's wearers of unusual problems with their health then everyone will be interested.
Including me and a few 100 million others.
I just finished a tour of 13 months in Vietnam. I went to my high school 2 years after graduation on leave between assignments. I was denied entrance because I was wearing my uniform that I was proud of and proud to serve my country.
All I wanted to do was see a couple of teachers who had taught me over my high school years and believed in me during trying times in school.
I never went back.
Just a little tid bit. Any long term holder as I'am, knows how GLW almost went BK with cable many years ago.
I'm sure this time around, no matter who may buy GLW fiber that GLW will be a little more reluctant to over produce without iron clad contracts that must be paid if this fiber build out falls apart in the future.
I'm happy to hear about the GOOG news article, but I want to hear about the AT&T purchase of fiber and from whom.
I would assume the AT&T deal is worth a lot more than GOOG.
Thanks for your reply. I'm sure serious investors in GLW already know what you have written. If not it's a good reminder.
But at this time there has been no proof that GLW fiber is being used.
I would hope at some point there is some verification.
I remember an article saying GOOG was using their own fiber. But I could have been dreaming.
Long term holder.
Who the heck is making all this fiber???
I hope GLW is at least doing some of it and not an overseas company.
