    Time to start averaging down

    IMHO I would wait a little to average down. It looks like on the charts it broke its support in the high $19's and could go to support at around $16 if it doesn't hold there could go to$14 and then support at $12. Could also build a new base here. Odd's are short term it goes to around the $15-16 level at least. IMHO Good Luck

    Looks like entity took about a 40,000 share position at the open. Shows you how fast this thing can go up due to low float. Almost a 20% gain. Should fall back considerably unless there is more buying but looks like a good day for ADMP. IMHO

    Sentiment: Strong Buy

    you can't base the price on 2008 technical levels. There is no support for this stock. Could go to zero. They need some institutional or partner buying to turn the tide since all the retail investors with any money have been scared away. IMHO

    Sentiment: Hold

  • plat46 plat46 Aug 15, 2014 7:49 PM Flag

    This stock like all these developmental companies are big gambles. You could lose all your money on this one. What I disagree with you is that you can buy it back lower. Once you sell a stock like this you wouldn't buy it back. If this stock comes back it would come on an announcement as a partner ship or someone purchasing a large minority interest. The stock would come back quickly and you would think its to high and by the time you get done deciding it would be way up there. This company still has a chance of coming back. If they get their first approval for the epipen they will get it to market quickly and show revenues. Plus they have other products that could be in the market by 2017. The problem with this stock right now is that there is no institutional backing it is all mainly retail buyers and sellers. They only have a float of 8 million, if they survive this will certainly increase but with just the epipen they have a market of overt a $1 billlion if they capture 40% and make a 10% profit margin that would be $40 million, not inconceivable. Even with 20 million shares that would be earning f $2/ share. IMHO short term this still hasn't bottomed out but who knows. For a gamble I think it is a buy and hold at these levels for about a one year hold. Could go lower. It's like a lottery ticket buy it assuming you most likely could lose all your money.

    Sentiment: Buy

    Everyone knows they won't get the 17.8% rate increase but will get something. It they asked for what they really needed they wouldn't get anything. Government mandates have been killing utilities. They force them to purchase extremely expensive renewable energy like solar and wind and close down extremely cheap coal fired generation. If they did get the rate increase their kw-hr price would be 11.4 cents per kw-hr. The average nationwide cost for electricity per the EIA is 14 cents per kw-hr. They actually are doing good keeping rates in Pennsylvania cheap. Yes when they are forced to shut down large coal fired plants perhaps a 25% increase will bring them up to the national average of 14 cents kw-hr. This company needs to do a better job presenting their rate increase this is why they had to cut their dividend and why companies like AEP don't have to. Typical monthly power usage is about 800 kw-hrs/month average. Electricity is still a cheap commodity and is even cheap at 14 cents/kw-hr. My electric bill is about 50% of my cable or less the 50% of my cell phone bill. IMHO

    Sentiment: Buy

    Of course California has some of the highest electrical costs in the country already. They currently import approximately 30% of their electric needs from other states. Oh I get it now they will import 60% of their power and then have 30% hydro, 5 % solar and 5% wind. Prices will be low as Mexico is buildng cheap coal power with very little environmental controls.

    Sentiment: Hold

  • Since it is past the record date if you sell the stock now do you get the dividend? I think you do.

    Sentiment: Hold

  • I think this beating down of utility stocks is hurting NRG even though they really are not a utility. I don't think the dividend will support this stock until about $15 if it was considered a utility stock. Surprised stock didn't bounce today. Good Luck to all

    Sentiment: Hold

  • not good for FE

    Sentiment: Hold

  • Below $30 in 2003. Today low $30's nice comeback. Hope the news is good tomorrow.

    Outdated business model...?

    by jensen111111 Aug 1, 2014 6:51 PM
    plat46 plat46 Aug 3, 2014 8:54 AM Flag

    Their whole business model is based on government mandates, government production tax credits and capital investment credits. Any problems there and this company is toast. Solar Power is just to low density and expensive but as long as the government mandates it and provides incentives it will be okay. In my state they have cut the incentives so there will be no solar installations unless you are a hobbyist. This company isn't projected to make money for a few years. This is a very dangerous stock to be in. On the positive side Elon Musk is the biggest holder but IMHO that is the only think good about it. This solar stock IMHO is a large bubble about to bust. Think about it if the market tanks what is going to hold this thing up not a dividend, not earning. Plus to boot all these government incentives are driving up Electricity Cost for the average worker.

    Sentiment: Sell

    gettys, the thing that worries me is that UBS has been right in the past. Hope they don't hit that $26 target.

    FE downgraded by UBS.

    plat46 plat46 Jul 30, 2014 2:05 PM Flag

    Looks like all the utilities are diving because of the good economy and the perception that the FED is going to raise interest rates. 5% yield would be about $28, UBS and their clients are probably shorting short term. Still can't get a CD of over .7%, lol

    Sentiment: Hold

    So much for the 50% move...

    That's what the company is saying about a 60 day period for accepting the review and 8 months for the review. This is a generic with a little different delivery system. The company is looking for it to be a low cost alternative much like their inhalers. That would put approval at the beginning of April. They could get this product to market very fast. Their inhaler has a lot more potential if they ever get it to market. They are touting it as a low cost alternative to advair. Strategy is similar to the syringe. I think they are going to have a pretty market percentage wise for both. Medical costs are spiraling out of control and a big part of it is pharmaceuticals so insurance companies, hospitals etc will be looking more to generics. Would really like to see them start Phase three on their APC inhalers. Even though they could go lower I think they are a great buy down here based on their strategy working. If they are successful you won't be able to buy this stock fast enough. IMHO

    Sentiment: Strong Buy

  • although with the small volume, float and price on this stock it wouldn't take much to drive it up. I think it is pretty good news. They could have revenues by next summer. IMHO

    Sentiment: Strong Buy

  • That 4.5% yield doesn't look bad. 10 year Treasury at 2.45%

    Sentiment: Buy
