hey Traderrook, I remember you from the GILD board. enjoy your posts. I also bought today, average price over 3 buys and 1 sell is around 310 ... knew it wanted $300 but did not trust my gut feel so did not stay patient. I think you made a great buy !
where is that bridge, ha ha ! I bought the knife today too, have a longer term perspective than most. solid fundamentals, over-reaction on the earnings and guidance. May take a Cpl of months to recover to the $320's but that is fine by me.
ha ha, thought you were taking the summer off fishing ! great move loading up on this one, Patchen. Good luck to you as well.
with respect to the SLXP takeover, SLXP traded below the VRX bid until the ENDP bid came along ... but the options told a very different story. Similar to what is going on here. Patience ....
First of all Celgene is a great company and i am sure many of the people at Receptos would be happy transitioning over. The fit is pretty interesting, it brings this part of the business into the line of fire of Biogen, and it would not surprise me one bit of Biogen raises the stakes just to force Celgene to pay market price (because we all know Celgene will pay more, the question is how much more). Kind of like what ENDP did to VRX during the Salix takeover drama which in effect forced VRX to pay closer to market value (which i was lucky to participate in after buying SLXP in November after the ignominious earnings call).
technically looking like it could hit .72, have been some at this level hoping I am wrong. With a US rate hike in the cards, that should strengthen the green back against the looney.
I am with you on the HZNP/DEPO desire. Thanks for the heads up for FOLD, was in it awhile back for a trade and will kick it's tyres again
Hey Freddy, looks like someone deleted a post so my post has disappeared. hope you have been well ? Havent heard anything from Patches for awhile, i am sure he caught the biggest fish when CELG netted RCPT. Are you still in GILD ? I am in GILD, PTLA, AGIO, DEPO (with offsetting puts), MDVN (ouch), PFNX, RLYP ... with a smattering of PTX (still very red in that name).
