trying to get out and back in is a way to miss the whole trade, if you like the stock you sit it out. And for those with Hep C it is an immortality drug or something and it seems when someone is dying time is everything.

i own 24k shares of Gild but you know about bmy spread price opinion on Jazz and added more today. oh well here is my opinion on GILD. It has had a great run up and is at a current 45 PE which takes a lot of the current good news into account so it comes down to public awareness and whether it can surprise. I feel their will be upside surprises but since it has such a high PE it will not explode rapidly except on earnings dates if revenue hits bottom lines, a problem that it has had in the past. I also feel it will be 100 by yearend but this slow growth has helped my investment basis a lot so I am not unhappy but perhaps a little confused. my cost basis is around 70 on it and it is 56 here before I added 3500 shares this week.
yes I can remember it also and I was out but my son had been in it and I got in at $7.50 and road it up to $20.50. I really though earlier this year that the acquistions were going to really light this up before I changed my mind on oil and got rid of all oil investments some that I had been in for 4 yrs (cop) While I dont believe we will see those prices again below $10 unless a number of things came together at once such as high interest rates, low oil prices and another recession., I do believe that this trades with a slight down ward bias and may reach $18 this year. I do believe that with DD you can easily make more in other sectors. My best two bets are GILD and IPCI but they dont pay any dividends. I wish you all luck really and only bring this up as I really dont want any of the long term posters here that have been quite helpful to me to have to sit and not make any funds but they are only my opinions and heaven knows I am wrong 40% of the time wish it was better but glad it is 60% right most of the time. keep smiling
darn I thought the answer was $3.991 as I am seeing those all the time or 3.9899 crazy market makers.
the question is quite a comment on you but the reply to my comment is a bigger indicator of your immaturity and intelligence. Stupid is as stupid does is what comes to mind
blood banks test all donated blood for Hep C so it wont be used and given to someone. it is free for the donation of one pint of blood
there is a cheap test, go to your blood bank and donate blood, if they turn it down it is because you might have Hep C and they would let you know you need to see a doctor for further tests as they wont tell you why.
dont think so the spread between high and low will narrow to $3 to $4 back to normal and then it will begin its upward trend again. IMO
I like two others real well right now, GILD and IPCI. ON IPCI you need to do a little DD to understand why this could go double digit by year end. my goal on GILD is 100 to 120 by year end.
all you are doing is buying loans so why would you offer much of a premium? This is low interest rate loan sharking taking advantage of companies with sub creditwrothiness. I can borrow money cheaper than they loan it for to corporations. You need to trade this very carefully and quickly.
as the heading on MF says lower oil prices hurt BBEP, this is what i warned when I said i was exiting a while back, I see more ot this in the future and because of their heavy tilt to oil vs NG now the NG will not hold them up. Their coverage on distributable cash flow also decreased below 1. this is also not a good sign for you that are here for income as if this continues it could cause the reduction in distribution. You have to wonder how they will correct this problem. Sell more stock then more dividends which are higher than interest now. But what happens if you get your inflation and rates go up and they havent sold stock and have those loans. The long timers in this stock know what can happen I am not predicting armageddon here but I do not believe this is the place to have your money for the next couple of years unless things change soon. Sorry I still like management and how well run this company is and that is why I continue to watch it. but it has been stale money for the last few yrs and better capital gains elsewhere. GLTU all
I use to do a lot of bull call spreads when aapl was in an uptrend. GILD is not a good stock as you cant get deep ITM spreads that will yield enough, AAPL can still be done judiciously. I like to do spreads 10% ITM to take care of most downtrends and like to yield 25% You really cant do that here without more risk and risk is a killer. As far as options, I like selling puts here ditm 75 they have been profitable for me. I did over 1000 contracts of aapl spreads a month for almost a year and used to run a blog on it but have given it up when aapl dropped from 700 to 600 where I exited spreads and my stock.
you obviously havent done your homework here or you would understand why I and jan us have holdings here along with a lot of mutual funds, it has nothing to do with earnings or lack thereof, or lawsuits, it has to do with the sale of assets and the funds it will create in excess of the price of this stock. If you remember I recommended this when it was around $3 and anyone would have liked following that recommendation and be sitting on a 40% gain in a short period of time but I am greedy and looking for in excess of 100% returns in less than a year from original recommendation. There I gave you more than you ever give, do you know where the shares went for HIG for the
$500Million dollars spent each of the last two years?? That is the question you keep ignoring and answering with comments as so and so bought Hig so what do I care, I want to know where the billion dollars in stock purchases went that are not visible.
