One other item that i think belongs as #5 on this list:
5) Management lives by the UPOD (Under-Promise, Over-Deliver) and doesn't provide questionable reasons for under-performance. Investors can smell BS and will be very unforgiving when burned.
Yes, i agree 100%. Investors love the following 'formula':
1) Diverse revenue stream
2) The different revenue streams are each growing, some exceptionally
3) Management has shown they are shrewd and shareholder friendly by aggressively acquiring other quality businesses/drugs without over paying
4) The business is based in Ireland which has the lower tax rates, which helps to boost the value of other non-Ireland drugs/businesses they acquire.
HZNP has all 4 of these properties and that is rare. Investors are williing to pay up for it.
you listed 10 names, not 18, dummy. Don't you know how to count?
Those are only 10 names, not 18 as you stated in your previous post.
Plus, you didn't include emails
you wrote to 18 PTX executives, huh? How did you get the names and addresses/emails of 18 executives? Please list them for us.
Your guesses are wrong again and again
I guess you were wrong with your 'under 6 by 3PM prediction' , huh, Genius?
Stocks go up and down for many reasons. Sometimes it appears to be for no reason and it is only later, in hindsight, that it makes sense. The 'smart' money may be accumulating a stock because they have the inside word on the company's progress. Why do some biotechs trade at multi-billion dollar market caps with little or no revenue or earnings? They trade on speculation that they are the path for great success. There are a many things that could move a drug company's stock before sales are reported. IT HAPPENS ALL THE TIME TO MOST COMPANIES SO WHY WOULD PTX BE AN EXCEPTION? You just don't know. Your guess that it is going to $3 is just a wild guess, but you are entitled to whatever nonsense you want to spew. Stocks go to extremes for reasons that often don't make sense to experienced investors. Why did NFLX go from 295 to 65 in less than 6 month in 2011 only to go from 330 to 620 in the first half of 2015? Alot of speculation, going both ways.
My point is that stop acting like you are the great nostradamus of stock prices. If you think you are such a great stock price predictor, why don't you buy some PTX PUTS and post your trades here ????????? if it's really going to the $3's you will make a fortune.
"Does it matter?" Ridiculous question.
" I wouldn't be expecting any gains in 2015". Just a wild guess on your part. Unless you know something the rest of us don't, you have no idea if they will achieve traction with the new sales team and products.
"They have no news to report in the near future". Just another wild guess on your part.
"This is going to get driven down to new lows every day." Just another wild guess.
yeah, I tried (unsuccessfully) to get in and out of this one and messed up badly with my stock account. Thank fully, I didn't do that with my HZNP call options. I learned my lesson.
This 'blind' amateur bought 15K+ shares in the low $8 range last Summer, right after HZNP tanked.
I also bought $15K worth of August 2015 calls in mid March. Want to guess how much those are worth now?
dude, you are just jealous that Mike accurately called the moves on this stock, has a made a fortune on it and is respected on this board. You, on the other hand, are the jer.k that wants to ruin the party
