    Loaded on BBEP, see recovery starting soon.

    I think you have a little longer than a year to wait if you want to maximize this investment but we are starting to see oil production drop world wide so the beginning of the recovery is on its way but it will be a lot longer before this price rallies significantly as we need oil prices above $75 to get the hedges on for 2017 and this out of the fire. The shorts will start covering once oil rallies that much.

    i have seen this type of spread on merging stocks alt the way through closing, it makes little since but on the most recent one I can think of was Qcor/MNK which had a spread as of closing and you had to wait till after for the new stock to get full value.

    I think the stock price is down because of two factors, first the purchase at a high price Zohydro and second the sales team which to date doesnt seem to have delievered on sales.or ability to learn or care. Rxn numbers have not improved and the proof of that is that nothing was said at the conference in regards to improvement meaning there isnt any and so the stock goes down more. paid lots of money and got lots of expenses.and so far no income

    they are not ruling exactly on subsidies but only subsidies for states that did not set up state programs which are mostly republican states and that tis why if the Supreme court rules agoints those subsidies the republicans will cave quickly.

    you said I was touchy but it seems you are the touchy one and you need to read what I stated, I said you should question the information you get from scotttrade as the nasdaq was not showing that trade. My facts were straight, it was you that had the wrong facts from the wrong source, apology accepted. I have not in one of my posts disparaged you. I have pointed out that the criticisms you have launched seem to be self profiled. know it is okay tobe wrong sometimes but never right to be pig headed.

    thank you ice I posted because he wrongfully stated it was AH and then called the guy a jerk when asked where he got the info. now he says others are touchy when questioning his wrong statement and I did so without calling names, wehn it seems he is the inexperienced one with his wrong statements. I see why he doesnt post often as he cant get it right and childessness comes with name calling. which it seems he calls it as it is at home in the mirror lol

    well you should give them up for information as the Naxdaq which handles all AH trades is only showing slightly over 90k for the complete AHs market.

    phil do some DD on opk the cheap way to buy it is to buy Nov $35 calls on BRLI 4 calls for every 1100 shares of OPK

    nice sarcasm the point is that you are probably one of those that gave a green thumbs up on ignoring corvette but yet you cant ignore him just as those that continue to post about him and I would like to see everyone REALLY IGNORE him which means not to mention or validate him then he might go away. If you dont talk to him or about him then you have ignored him otherwise you encourage him. I am not mad at you I am just trying to get him out of here he is taking up haff of my board on ignores daily. people like him ruin boards and people that encourage these guys even in negative posts only keep them around. imo but go on and keep posting if that is all that you have to do and dont have anymore to offer and I will take your advice and my promise.

    another example of how I play options on this deal and the math of it. Today I would buy multiples of Noc $35 BRLI nov calls about $7.10 and sell 11 OPK dec $15 calls at $2 for a net expenditure of 4X7.10 minus 11X 2 or $640 plus commissions ( which need to be kept very low) assuming that OPK is over 15 at dec this will net $2500 for a profit of $1860 on a $640 investment for 6 months with protection of no loss unless OPK goes below
    .$13.31 which means I dont need the stock to go up 60% as you do to make money I need it to not go down 10% and I can make 300% in 6 months for you to make that rate on those $23 calls you would need the stock to be over 50 figuring compounding.or more. Do you see the risk reward here and how you need to use math and figure your returns and risk to avoid loses and minimize your losses. You really need to give it a lot more thought but I have been doing this for 20 yrs.It is like just learning holdem poker and entering the world series of poker ( a waste of money)

    there is part of your problem you buy options out of the money by a great deal and the premium or juice is high and the stock has to double to make you any money. You need to buy deep in the money calls where the premium is so low that the cost of money is higher than the juice. you are gambling and not investing. market makers love you gamblers. I would rather be in the jan 17 $8 calls Let me do a little math for you Jan 2017 $8 calls are about $7.80 and jan 2017 $23 calls are 1.75 the $8 call is profitable at $15.60 where as you are not profitable until 24.75 for you to get the return on money that the $8 call gets you need a price $27.50 Up until that price he is more porfitable %wise. meanwhile when it gets to 23 he has doubled sold his position and moved to $12 or $14 calls further out say jan 2018 It is unlikely that you will never catch him on return because sy by jan 2016 if this stock is $20 you have lost money and he has made 50% You really need to research the value of these options as time expires and at different prices. The inablility to use numbers on returns is why most option players lose money. I would liquidate your position asap.You have a lottery ticket

    looks like this stock is about to start its trend back up again, if I were short I would consider covering and if I wanted to go long now is the time to enter IMO. Yesterday I bought some more nov $35 calls BRLI as I could get OPK at a slightly lower price than market and not put up most of money until NOV almost like a free ride.
