  • Why is NVS selling its Roche holdings?
    My question is: Will they pay a hefty dividend or will they use the money to buy another company?

    Sentiment: Strong Buy

    You need to become educated.
    IRBT has been among the most innovative companies in the WORLD.
    YOU know ZERO about this company!
    Have YOU ever looked at their brilliant engineering innovations in the defense sector these financial engineers have essentially destroyed?
    YOU know nothing about the need to preserve cash for more innovation.
    YOU know nothing about how extremely well managed this company has been on BOTH engineering and financial management.
    Unbelievable. Period. Sad. Sad. Sad.

    I also went to the local Safeway and the price per dozen is 99 cents.
    I also looked at a couple of other stores where the price for large is $1.59 per dozen in one place and $1.49 in the other.
    So the price must be dropping at least anecdotally here in the Northeast.

    A PEG ratio of any company with declining earnings forecast should not be above 1.00.
    RL now has a PEG ratio of 2.30 indicating the stock could get totally obliterated from here another 50%.

    I do not see how they can meet their estimates. They look optimistic to me.

    Headwinds:
    1. El Nino indicating more snow and rain over the next 12 months.
    2. Surplus of corn, wheat and soybeans.
    3. Republican promise to end corn based energy production.
    4. Russian crop production ramp up as one of their means to help their balance sheet.

  • researchbeforeaction by researchbeforeaction Oct 18, 2015 4:27 PM Flag

    1. Russia plans on massive increase in corn, soybean and wheat production.
    2. Republicans certain they will end the production of corn based energy products.

    Fortunately I added before this huge run up.
    LCI catalyst appears clear to me with acquisition even though it requires a bit of debt.
    CALM egg company with massive upside in earnings this year with great dividend.
    PPC chicken company with p/e around 6 with feed (corn, wheat, soy, fish meal prices plummeting) and new chicken restaurants opening in the thousands.
    SAFM same catalysts as PPC, both extremely inexpensive stocks from earnings and fundamentals perspectives.
    All have high short positions for no fundamental reason. In the case of CALM the high short position has existed for over 10 years but the stock has risen more than 90% of the market over the past 20 years.

    There is nor has there been any news in India about Amira whatsoever.

    Makes no sense. Searched all major news outlets and business news sites. Nothing.

    Why no coverage at all?

    IBN is far more profitable than most Asian banks and clearly has the best management.

    Why I bought more at the open

    I think, for now, $55 is fair but $60 within six months.
    I agree with znvstr on that point.

    It really depends on what type of investor you are. For people who just buy and hold, CALM is one of the very top tier stock price appreciation stocks of the decade, beating most "high flyers". Its business is very basic, very easy to understand, dependent on corn, rice, fish, soybean, and other ingredient prices. In other words you can pretty much buy some share and hold forever.... or until somebody comes up with artificial, good tasting, genetically engineered egg substitutes (possibly 20 to 30 years from now).

    It is just about the very best protein producer from the perspective of the "perfect essential amino acid" content of eggs that can sustain animal life forms, particularly chickens and humans.

    Not only is it very high on the protein content but also the best value in cost of that protein. Virtually nothing else beats eggs unless you mix several other types of foods to get those essential amino acids. I know of a group of peoples in Asia that eats primarily eggs, bananas and little else and they survive to ripe old ages. A friend of mine did the same for 2 years and remained quite healthy except he lost a few unneeded pounds.

    1. I read the balance sheet coming out of this quarter which indicates good omens for next.
    2. I am retired from the poultry business and realize the excellent management, performance, dividend and continuous diligence to detail of this company.

  • researchbeforeaction researchbeforeaction Jul 16, 2015 2:25 PM Flag

    Fully agree.
    Interesting how shorts start their attack just prior to blowout earnings surprises. Shorts know VDSI beats estimates consistently and consecutively.
    Earnings surprise% +88.90% +180.00% +40.00% +61.90%

    Sentiment: Strong Buy

    Notice how this stock has its rolling pattern and how short each cycle is.

    Should be relatively rapid move to top of cycle this round as in the past.

    Higher highs each cycle.

    Sentiment: Strong Buy

    Egg industry notes

    UC Irvine and Australian chemists have figured out how to unboil egg whites – an innovation that could dramatically reduce costs for cancer treatments, food production and other segments of the $160 billion global biotechnology industry, according to findings published today in the journal ChemBioChem.

    "Yes, we have invented a way to unboil a hen egg," said Gregory Weiss, UCI professor of chemistry and molecular biology & biochemistry. "In our paper, we describe a device for pulling apart tangled proteins and allowing them to refold. We start with egg whites boiled for 20 minutes at 90 degrees Celsius and return a key protein in the egg to working order."

    Like many researchers, he has struggled to efficiently produce or recycle valuable molecular proteins that have a wide range of applications but which frequently "misfold" into structurally incorrect shapes when they are formed, rendering them useless.

    "It's not so much that we're interested in processing the eggs; that's just demonstrating how powerful this process is," Weiss said. "The real problem is there are lots of cases of gummy proteins that you spend way too much time scraping off your test tubes, and you want some means of recovering that material."

    But older methods are expensive and time-consuming: The equivalent of dialysis at the molecular level must be done for about four days. "The new process takes minutes," Weiss noted. "It speeds things up by a factor of thousands."

    To re-create a clear protein known as lysozyme once an egg has been boiled, he and his colleagues add a urea substance that chews away at the whites, liquefying the solid material. That's half the process; at the molecular level, protein bits are still balled up into unusable masses. The scientists then employ a vortex fluid device, a high-powered machine designed by Professor Colin Raston's laboratory at South Australia's Flinders University.
