    Is this a set up, or what?

    This is a serious question. I got into this stock... and out with a small profit because I can't find the timeline for release of pharmaceuticals. I know some are approved for sale in Europe, but analysts who rate this a buy/strong buy project declining revenues. I simply want information. Not bashing, but I have been burned too many times. You should want this info as well. Buying on the Marijuana connection, or momentum, or even analysts recommendations is not enough. Look at CANN. It shot up to $64. but today trades at $1.11. I'm not saying GWPH is the same, but if people in CANN asked questions and were told ignore, they may have lost all their money.

    Any appreciate info from any legitimate investor out there.

    Thanks.

  • Who would have thought that FDA approval was already baked into the price. So, it appears that at $2. valuation, this stock was 40% overvalued by the market. I bought several years ago, in the low $2 range and have cost averaged down over the years. However this stock is approaching its multi year low. There have to be people who bought into the Hype early, in the $40-$60 range... and a lot more who bought in in the $4-$10 range. Everybody who has bought in (and held) has lost. As the ~8 year low is, I believe $.96, the most a long term investor (not trader), could be up on this stock is a little over 25%. That is pitiful, given the performance of other Biotech companies.

    So please don't encourage people who don't understand the history of this stock -- and who may not have strong stomachs (npi) -- to invest in this stock. Lack of investor commitment and manipulation of investors by traders is what destroys value more than anything.

    Stop the Hype!

    While I would like to see better PR out of this company I also wish that short-selling bashers such as yourself would stay away. If you are one of your self-described "bagholders," then why are you bashing the company and the stock. You rate the stock a "strong sell," yet want us to believe you are holding your shares. Either you are a short posing as a long-suffering long. Or you are a basher, looking to get in at a lower price. If you are truly a shareholder "holding" your shares... then rate this stock a hold. But if you thing it's going to 50 cents or zero for that matter, then sell before you lose more/everything. Ranting and bashing from shareholders is the last thing you want as a shareholder. Constructive criticism is one thing, but bashing is not productive... if you are a shareholder... which I can only conclude, you are not.

    Sentiment: Buy

  • Someone please explain the price of this to me. Average analyst rates this a buy/strong buy... yet has the company's revenues dropping almost 20% next year. Meanwhile it trades a almost 30x next years revs. I understand the idea of speculative, but where's the beef?

    I kept my same insurance too. But it seems Conservative business people actually are starting to like Obamacare. Once you get past the whining and fretting, you might understand that giving people healthcare insurance is a good thing. Not that the legislation can't be improved. It can! But only when the posturing and complaining stops. See what business people are saying: search for
    "Obamacare’s not so bad after all, business leaders say" in the Dallas Business Journal

    Damn tough to break...

    Hope you didn't opt for this strategy, as you'd be down about 8% in less than a month (do this every few weeks and you will have a 65+% loss for the year. To be honest, every time I see a repeating pattern and attempt to capitalize, the stock breaks out of the trading range either up or down, and I end up on the wrong side of the trade (as you did this time). Better to buy and hold... which is what I am doing with CARA. Maybe add to your position on weakness, and lighten up a bit on strength, so you are always in the game, but can make a little profit on the trade.

  • This is a GE message board... and what I want to know is: When is Jeff Immelt going to be canned. In 2001, when Immelt took over, the share price was about $40. Over 13 years later, it is down 40% -- during that same period, the S&P has almost doubled, and that doesn't even take into account the dividends it paid (for a lot of that time GE suspended its dividend. So assuming you put 200k in the market in 2001... today, you would have about 500K. But if you bought GE stock instead, you would have about 120K. And all the while Jeff Immelt has raked in millions of dollars in salary and bonuses, while GE shareholders have been raked over the coals. It is time for Jeff Immelt to go... step down... or be fired, if necessary. He has not delivered for shareholders.

    Sentiment: Hold

    This is a waste of time and money (really a WOFTAM)... the Affordable Care Act cannot be repealed. Would you take away health care insurance from the 8 million+ who have bought plans on the exchanges? Also, do some research and you will see that the Affordable Care Act was based on various REPUBLICAN plans: The Heritage Foundation's plan from 1989. The 1993 Republican proposed plan of Sen. John Chafee... and of course, the plan of Republican Governor Mitt Romney. The problem is that it was passed by DEMOCRATS... even though most of what it contained -- including the individual mandate -- was previously proposed by REPUBLICANS. It is time for all our elected officials to grow up! And for both parties to stop posturing and work for the American people. Can the Affordable Care Act be made better? Absolutely! Republicans should be putting their efforts into improving this legislation... not trying to repeal it. At this point, that would be disastrous for our health care, and would only lead to more partisanship and political gridlock.

    Bet you were also shorting Netflix.

    Shorting, you are paying points to borrow the stock, and you have unlimited risk. Going long, you are often paid to hold the stock (dividend), and your risk is limited to your investment.

    Shorting, you can get hit by margin calls, when you by a stock long(not on margin) there is never a risk of a margin call. Can't "buy" a short position, unless you buy Puts, and then they expire -- so you are definitely trying to time the market.

    Shorting, you will likely be paying short term capital gains... Longs who invest generally pay long term cap gains. I have held SNDK for years and have a basis of around $14. Lots of ups and downs, but staying long has proven the best decision.

    Shorting just feels super negative to me as well. Making money exploiting the pain of others. I'd rather bet on things I believe in. JMHO. Best to all...

    Sentiment: Buy
