I'm still around, though pretty much out of the market for now except a LT hold on some BTX. I got tired of watching stocks, feel the market is at or approaching a top, need a break, at least for the summer, if not longer.
Proud of you, Jonz. Now if only you would choose to display your prowess with grace,
Wowsa - what made you hold them? Get a call from Martha Stewart's broker? Were you lucky or smart or both? Over 100k sitting in this at a time the market pressure could do anything on the negative said, but you still held, like Captain Kirk staying on the bridge as Romulans attacked with the toga - I mean - cloaking device.
No need to hesitate to tell us - we are happy for you! What a difference 9 minutes makes - probably 500 seconds or so - think of th rate the investment increased per second in that period. $200 or so a second? Doesn't sound like much but adds up quickly. Now if only you could do that every second of a dat, all 14.400 of them. 2.880,000 in a day at tht rate.
We can always dream.
yes - I thought of Saram immediately - I jumped on his bandwagon, but then saw weakness and got rid of the shares last week while I could still get my money back...who knew?
jonz - the old timers on this board have cost basis below 100, some below 80. Some, if you add in the $30 payment per share from the merger and their old QCOR basis, way way below that.
I agree that it looks like 113 is coming again - that's why I already sold the shares I added - did so last week - and will see what bargains you bring.
Price might wobble around here the rest of the week - but I believe we are on track for higher highs and higher lows next week - not saying I know or sure.
Here is what is more odd - last time he showed up to tell us he had shorted at 121 as we climbed back up - here we are for 2 days over 122 and not a peep.
You can rest assured as soon as he sees any ST weakness, he will be happy to come back to the neighborhood.
Likely, he was watching highs this AM in the market and planning his next shorts - guess MNK isn't a good candidate at the moment.
are you talking about Rocky and Bullwinkle, Boris?
You might want to note how the double bottom just completed very much like the one in Oct -Nov 2014 - someone pointed this out on stocktwits -
a shrewd gut on stocktwits, apparently a former pro, says he thinks Greece is already baked in to the market.
Saram? You made the spot on call about the hit piece non-affect the other night. What do you (or anyone else) think about ST impact o Greece on MNK? I know Greece isn't important the way the press presents it - but still, could have ST affect on market.
no - it isn't a tough quarter - statement was about year on year comparison. They implied QCOR made the numbers look super last year this Q, and that the numbers really weren't realistic for normal sales, so sales this year, being a much more normal number, will look low compared to last year (they can't show double digit growth.)
so it isn't that sales are down - it's having to compare to last year's unrealistic number.
Sales of Acthar are going as expected, and expanding in pulmonary and rheumatology - Acthar is doing well, including in Apr-June Q., according to the CC.
So we do have one thing, minimum, not to be thanking Bailey and crew for. They juiced the numbers, evidently, to make QCOR look extra good while merger being firmed up.
wow - you really zapped me! I guess I will have to wait for a clear bottom and add again.
Interesting stuff, thanks. Maybe that is why they hustled PPS down the last two weeks, instead o taking a little longer. Maybe soon enough they won't have a chance.
looks to me is algos based on chart - last time we traded between 112 and 134. This time between 115 and 132 if the low holds, which I bet it does. Range bound and range beginning to tighten? Pat yourself on the back or having the courage and experience to buy at a nice time - only thing I would point out, there was a gap in the 116s that hadn't quite filled. Hard to believe the algos are so chart based and predictable - I still wait for the day when they will throw a curve and change up.
