“Everything that we’ve been doing for 25 years, it interconnects,” says Yancopoulos. “It’s not like we changed direction in the middle, or we did a new trick. It’s all building on the foundation of those early ideas, and we’re just taking them to the next level.”

"How an entrepreneur, a research genius and an industry legend built this century’s most inventive new drug company. Together they just might change medicine"
"According to a Forbes analysis of 220 drugs approved over the past decade for publicly traded companies, the companies that invented three or more medicines spent an average $4.3 billion in R&D per drug. The big boys spend still more: $5.5 billion for Merck, $7.8 billion for Pfizer and $10 billion for Sanofi, Regeneron’s partner in many of its projects. Regeneron’s cost per drug? Only $736 million. “He’s been successful beyond anything I could imagine,” says Fred Alt, the Harvard Medical School geneticist who first told Schleifer about Yancopoulos."
"Accordingly, Schleifer is approaching billionaire status. He’s worth $800 million, largely in Regeneron stock, according to Forbes estimates. Meanwhile, Yancopoulos has made more money than almost any research biologist in history. Last year, he received a $82 million pay package, also mostly stock, which bettered every chief executive in America except Oracle’s Larry Ellison. His estimated total net worth: $400 million."
"On September 16, 2013, AstraZeneca (NYSE: AZN) filed a New Drug Application (“NDA”) with the United States Food and Drug Administration (“FDA”) for naloxegol. Under the terms of the License Agreement, dated September 20, 2009, as amended, between AstraZeneca and Nektar Therapeutics (Nasdaq: NKTR)), AstraZeneca is obligated to pay Nektar a $70 million milestone payment within 5 business days of acceptance of the NDA by the FDA. The FDA typically makes its acceptance determinations regarding NDAs within 60 days after filing, although the outcome and exact timing of such acceptance determination remains subject to the discretion of the FDA."

If your interested in a more formative/speculative play, check out MDGN. Picked up an impressive jockey a while back, and seems to be catching a bid. Again, I'm in at much lower prices, but if they succeed at what they are working on, the ride north will be a long one. :-) Check out todays volume.
P.S. HALO seems to be getting some upward momentum, along with NKTR, and CLDX. Im in at much lower prices, but feels like the wind is building in their sales.
Still holding my THOR, I think they have a very strong management team, as well as product. Looking to add more to core and get back some trading shares, just pondering timing and or event that pushes me to pull he trigger.
Congrats on the SSH, its been cooperating with its volatility for training.
Ah, but the NEW news is they are committing people, and dollars to DEVELOP, not just talk about it.
Sounds like a smart guy!! They should put him to work in a nuclear plant with those kinds of home grown fixes, probable save a lot of money.
Do they use duck tape in nuclear plants??
Oh, and then there are their friends at Google. :-)

I had a home built by TMHC, and had an EXCEPTIONAL purchase, and building experience. Have lived in the home for just over a year now, and the quality of workmanship is also excellent. This was the 7th home we have had built, and I have to say, TMHC is ABSOLUTELY a builder I would recommend to others. They also were awarded "Builder of the Year" for 2012, and I know the neighbors that I have meet, have alos expressed similar opinions. So either you're short, your friend, had an unusual experience, or is one of those "high maintenance" customers that should have been fired to begin with.
P.S. I like the home enough, that I am considering having an additional one built, a little closer to Disney, and for company.
Oh the PAIN to be SHORT, when a day like that happens, and you just never know when that day's gonna come. LOL :-)
