    choptank, good to hear from another customer who reports happy RAD employees. I love dealing with statistics so I put pencil to paper on the ladies situation. She actually told me she had worked 17 years, so I went back to 1998, and figured the yearly sp of RAD in the next 17 years. I I assumed a $200 dollar a month for the first 3 years, then an extra $100 more at every 3 year interval, and capped it off at $600 a month for the last 5 years. Her timing was pretty good in that only 1998 and 1999 was her cost basis high, $40 and $20. There was 10 years that had avg. sp of around $4.50, but the biggie for her was 5 years of avg. sp of $1, which meant buying 6,000 shares a year for 3 years, and 7200 a year for 3 years. Bottom line, the results show an investment of $84,200 and current ownership of 43,460 shares at a current value of $322,000. For some folks, that may not seem like much, but for us middle class people, such as a person working in a store, stocking, cashier, and other mundane daily duties, it is a lot of money. Her story reminds me of the early walmart employees, many in Ark, MO., TENN, OK, who were cashiers, stockers etc., and without even trying, they became millionaires due to their being in the right place at the right time. Timing and Dollar cost avg. is the key to stock market gains, many investors would not have stayed the course, but I guess when you are part of the company, it is easier to stay invested. Just for fun, I used an example of someone who maybe started at Rite Aid at age 22, and invested 600 amonth, they got lucky because they had 5 straight years of buying at avg of $1. Today, at age 29, they would have invested $50,400 and own 39,000 shares, and have $289,000. Just wonder, does anyone know people that have had similar stories working at regular type jobs and over time have accumulated a lot of money in their company? Long RAD!!!

    caseboy is an angry loner

    I imagine his story is a lot like Aces's, they were hourly workers, got fired, and the higher the sp goes, the angrier they get. Sad, sad, sad.

  • mofisher22 mofisher22 15 hours ago Flag

    you are correct, actually what they do is try to instill fear in small investors who can not afford to lose much money. It is sad, but true. Some folks can not stand to oters do good. Ace for example. He had his decade in the sun, it is sad he cant just let it go.

  • Was in tonight, doing my usual beer buy, they have the best price and the coldest in town, and thought I would just do a little look around to check on my investment. I encountered a lady I have seen for years, she was stocking some items. I told her I was a shareholder and was just looking at the store. When I told her that, she proceeded to tell me she was also, and that she had been for nearly 20 years, and that as a result, her children and grandchildren will be well taken care of. It is heartwarming to see a person that you often see working hard each time you go in the store, and learn that their years of hard work for the company has paid off in a huge way. I imagine those monthly 401k buys at $2 or less has really paid off. Can you imagine how many shares she and other employees stockpiled over the years? Hooray for them? By the way, she also said that RAD was a great company to work for and that HQ in Penn. really is smart.

    Sentiment: Strong Buy

  • picked as a top prospect for 2015. Seems more and more are jumping on the band wagon. Where there is smoke , there is fire. Hope everyone here is loaded. hint, casey hint, hint, Ace . Actually, why dont you guys give up the ghost and face reality? Are you OCD and have a fixation about RAD? Did your daddy buy at $45 back in 1996. then went broke went RAD crashed? Well, it is a new era, new folks in charge there, and with the new plan put forth by the president, Obama, RAD stands to be in the cat seat. Come on , get on board the RAD train.

    ...what if the formula does work,...

    I was not referring to the huge drop, but the one from $17 to $14 around Jan, 1996, and comparing the chart to current. At that time sp took off like a rocket to $46. As for the big move up in the mid to late 90s, I imagine the overall stock market was helpful, since it also tripled in that span, and like RAD, dropped like a rock around 2000. However, the market recovered, but RAD lagged for years. I believe they got in huge debt, and bad management played a part. What do you know bout RAD back then?

    yes, and, when a lot of positives come together, combustion can occur. I checked the RAD chart back in the 90s, and noticed the current chart looks a lot like the RAD of then. In early 96 , after a big move up, there was a big dip, like we had this year, but then it suddenly recovered and within a couple of years the sp more than tripled to around $46. A similar scenerio today would take sp to around $25. I am glad to be on the inside instead of outside looking in. glta

    High Risk Reward

    by baileysix Dec 25, 2014 10:08 PM
    mofisher22 mofisher22 Dec 26, 2014 10:35 AM Flag

    Always willing to discuss stocks, esp. biotech. From about 15 years of extensive experience, I feel somewhat qualified, hopefully, have learned something thru my experience. My first point is dont put down ETF, just check IBB 5 year return, or better yet 2 year, dont think your plan would be anywhere near it. The beauty of it is they have a lot in the maturing bios, and they are the best fast growers, since their risk has pretty much been taken out. Like others say, the fault with your plan is there is not much chance of a lottery winner, but a much better chance of lottery loers, meaning some of those $1,000 investments would nearly evaporate. For individual bios, some suggestions I have, dont fall in love with any one stock, find ones that have a good non-cancer product that has no or little current treatment (ACAD 2 years ago), look for bonifide ones with products/cash/potential that are beaten down for not much reason (ARRY, TEAR) , read boards and find some knowlegible trustworthy who do lots of DD, you will find it will save you a lot of time, and that they are nuch better than Cramer, (Mike C. on this board good example) Most little biotechs exist for little more than supporting a few of their key people, so dont jump on Pie in the Sky dreams, One can easily make great money in biotechs, the main key to remember is to take money off ats they double and triple, which they often do, but to make much, u will need to ichange to maybe 4 or 5 at $2,000 to $2500 each, good luck, ps I would think that NVIV might really be one of the best bets for huge gains of any u have, if can afford, may be worth investing a little more in it.

    What happened with ED drug?

    bet he is scratching his head on that one? If it droppedfrom 30 to 3 on all that good news, hopefully it will drop no more than that on some bad news. Lets see now, 1/10th of 30 was 3, so 1/10th of 3 is .30 cents So, say they had 5,000 shares at $30, worth $150,000, not bad, one could do something nice in retirement with that. But, then, they were holding out for more, like a million bucks, so they held and dreamed. Now, with just a whiff of bad news, the 5,000 shares is worth 30 cents, or $1500. Man, they will be lucky to afford an above ground swimming pool with that paltry amount. Course, then, if they hold it could get worse, drop another 10 fold, would be 3 cents, or $150, whoa, then it will be lights out, with maybe blowing that wad on a dinner with drinks at Longhorn steakhouse. But, I can speak from experience in obesity pill battles, won a few, lost a few, but had a biggy, rode 20,000 ARNA from $1.90 to $10 in about 6 months on their approval process, took $160,000 away, put in an IN GROUND pool with WATERFALL, and then stashed the rest in retirement acct., but seriously longs here, good luck. If I find half of the good things you say are true, I may load up in the $2s

    so, why has sp dropped 10 fold?

  • Or some drug they had besides diet drug? Hard to believe the drop from 30 to 3, though most folks knew this drug would never get off the ground due to fears of too many side effects.

    trust me, from someone who has lost a lot of money over the past 8 to 10 years due to his bashing articles. The fact is , a lot of folks must be listening, because the cause and effect is pretty obvious.Who knows, when the price gets as low as they want it to go, and they have bought the shares of lots of scared retail folks, maybe they will turn it back up north. Their timing was pretty smart, right on the backs of the big biotech beat down yesterday.

    He is very poerful. I suspect if you take the ones on his list, they are down more than other biotechs today. I know ISIS is.

    I have also been here, off and on, since 2000. Besides the favorable climate now for drug stores, the savior for RAD was the opp. to re do debt at such a favorable low interest, otherwise, it would have been a killer.
