    A Bit Concerning

    by usefuloptionsguy Jun 18, 2014 8:22 PM rebowley2 Jun 19, 2014 9:21 AM Flag

    I have not sold either, although I have traded at the margins buying when low and selling some at highs but keeping core positions.

    History is replete with companies first to market and then the swoon of others with competing products, like computers, computer programs, cars, ballpoint pens, and medicine. Yet 90+% effective is pretty good. Every dollar Gild earns lowers their cost price points and in turn allows them to compete on price if need be. First to market is a competitive advantage especially if other medicines only offer similar results as to effectiveness. The "cure" in effect lowers the long term cost of individual care.

    Gild has not lowered price and will not as long as other products are not available nor approved.

    I love the other comments referring to "if", "when", "20% lower price" etc, as it's all pie in the sky stuff. If Ford is selling cars at 20K sure others may offer cars at 18k or 22K but the key remains DEMAND. The cure causes the DEMAND. I have not seen nor read that the DEMAND has diminished by 20% ,if fact, if anything the need for the cure has increased. Much like the "cure" for Polio the fear propelled demand.

    The other point that I like to make is that the cure gets rid of HEP C, who said you couldn't get it again?

    Also kindly note that GILD is listed as one of the top 5 companies as to short interest.

    Be careful out there!

    You might want to retype that with a B in front of that illion. They made 2.5 Billion in the first quarter of 2014 off Sovaldi. 5 would be very conservative for the year.

    A move above 84.77 would be a breakout if it closed at the end of the day above this figure!

    Sentiment: Strong Buy

    Wait for ALSK to drop more

    Volume is up just broke into the high 1.60s. I am watching and ready to pull trigger on 5k shares.

    Sentiment: Strong Sell

    Good question? I have owned alsk several times. I can honestly say I never made much $'s in the effort. I will buy again when the current stock price is ridiculously LOW. I do not like the new merged enterprise but it was necessary as their debt was unmanageable. The debt has been reduced and will decline. I have asked this board when the next Payment is to be received but no one seems to know. I think it would be timed with the anniversary of their closing the AWN deal which I believe occurred in July or August of last year. That payment would be another 80 million to reduce their debt which should put them in much better shape. I would buy before that date. The key question is how they perform after major competition enters their market place. Hope this helps you.
