  • By all accounts BIO Tech and the rest of the techs are projected to rise sharply next year. Lots of these bio companies have so many new drugs etc. in the pipeline and FDA approval will be coming left and right beginning January'2015. I would continue to buy more BIO Techs for my company as I have done in 2014. In other words buy those shares and or mutual funds and sleep soundly at night like I do.

    Sentiment: Strong Buy

  • Just bought a huge huge lot. Guess what? Right after I bought it improved considerably with the result I made some great money formy company. You fools who short GILD Sciences! When will you learn that going in and out of the market is like living in a fools paradise. FOOLS learn from Mr. Moto that is m/I.

    Thanko.

    Nobody knows why we are down. It must be the manipulative hedge funds scr_ewing around. Just saw a great article on GILD. A very positive and bullish article for a great 2015 and the onwards future. Just bought a big lot based upon the recommendation of the 9 members of my board. I would say keep buying , keep dollar cost averaging and sleep soundly at night.
    Thanko.

    Thank you very much joe. I agree with you and your colleagues. I continue to buy more almost on a daily basis. Actually the investment firm where I am a senior director asks me to do so. We also buy BIO Mutual Funds and Technology Mutual Funds plus Health, Drugs, Transportation and the Utilities Sector. But yes the biggest holdings are in the BIO and the Technology Sector. We feel the dow will hit 44,000 by early 2016 and S & P and NASDAQ will be even higher percentage wise.
    Thanko!

    He is so caustic that the ebola virus would die immediately when it gets in touch with him. I also heard that he kissed an alligator and the alligator died.

  • It's evening here but I have been bottom fishing left and right. Just bought a huge huge huge block of aapl shares but others as well. Neither am I stupid, nor naive, nor lazy but definitely perceptive and proactive hence I am buying left and right, front and behind. BEST OPPORTUNITY OF THE YEAR IF NOT OF A LIFE TIME. You can buy tomorrow, but why wait!

    Sentiment: Strong Buy

  • Watch and learn guys. This is totally a bottom. We will see an upswing towards positive territory today. We are so sure that we just bought 25K shares of Gild.

    Don't be surprised if the dow rebounds between 300 to 700 points this week. I am from abroad visiting often and believe me you people are the most bestowed people on earth. All kinds of raw material,food, water, power, electricity and then now self sufficient in oil. If oil was $200 a barrel I would be worried for you. Gosh for GOD's sake it is only $84 a barrel and the world is nervous due to glut and the mighty USA has solar batteries, hybrid and now a new invention called "salt water batteries". On top of that you have low int. rate, no inflation, low unemployment, great retail sales and earning. low PE ratios, great balance sheets, great cash positions in the balance sheets, all industries such as iron and steel, agriculture, reansportation, manufacturing, hotels, autos, insurance, banking, agriculture, railways, aircraft manufacturing, food, agriculture, agriculture implements, health, bio, tech, IT etc. all doing fantastically well. So stop crying and complaining all day long. My recommendation:buy and hold and dollar cost averaging.
    Thanko

    sun of a beach you calling me a liar. I worked for a University and a Brokerage House when I was in the States. They always said "garbage in garbage out". So we have to worry about the reliability of the input. Plus what makes you think that we don't have other things to do besides producing financial statements. Finally it takes a while to accumulate "accruals" and other "costs" such as "ICR" etc. etc. When I used to work for a University we never did our financials before the 15th. of the following month. So before you call somebody a liar think about it in the future.

  • My board recommended that we invest more in aapl and plus technology mutual funds. Also good news=Based upon a completed analysis , we ended September'2014 on a positive note. Granted it was a difficult month for equities but we still ended positively because of the concept of "buy and hold and dollar cost averaging".

    Thanko

  • We just bought more GILD this very moment and a host of others as well largely mutual funds .

    Granted September'2014 was a tough month for the market. We just finished calculating our month to month returns. We have big big holdings so it takes a while. Guess what! We ended September'2014 on a positive note. Friends , it is all based upon "buy and hold and dollar cost averaging" that we are successful. The short cannot lay claim to such a profound statement by me i.e. that September'2014 ended on a positive note.

    When I saw the injustice being mated out to aapl my beloved aapl via via the downgrade I had tears in my eyes. What a miscarrage of justice. Aapl should sue them. I am sure they have a bundle of lawyers on their staff. Aapl "sue the hel_l out of them those krazy sun of a beach eat sheet and dye analysts". Yes eat sheet and dye in the gutter you sun of a beach. But then I got angry. But then immediately I felt peace ,so I promptly bought more aapl shares. Terrible horrible people those analysts punkrats talking and smelly far_ting all the time. For the rest of us longs "see you at $235 by early next year".
    Thanko

  • The article by Alyson Shontell in the Business Insider talks about bendgate. It states and I quote "even the guy who says he bent the I-Phone admits it was tough to do". The article further gives the person's name and states that he is 6' 3" and 220 lbs. What a bunch of B.S. this bending thing was. Sun of a beach eat sheet and dye people will say anything to lie and cheat to make dough. That big hog should have picked on somebody around 250 lbs or alternativel picked on my friend Margaret who is only 110 lbs but has a black belt. Poor I-phone could not defend itself from this big fat hog putting pressure on it and getting extra torgue by pushing extra from his huge huge bu_tt_ocks. Shame on you gorilla! You bully. I bet you also steal candies and cookies from kids going to school in the morning.

    I don't know how I missed your posting yesterday. Very perceptive and insightful and I agree with your analysis and conclusions. I think the USA third quarter GDP growth will be very good and with low int rates and no inflation and great balance sheets and low fuel costs and great sales and earnings, the USA market is going up. The bending issue was a lie and hostile propaganda by the sun of a beach eat sheet and dye people and all program errors(if any) have been corrected.I think we should see $250 (post split) by the end of second quarter 2015.
    Thanko

  • I saw two bending tests on CNBC and one on Bloomberg both in favor of I-Phone. The technical correspondence on CNBC tried to bend a book with the higher density as I-Phone and that book also bent. Now if you have a big back side on sit on the I-Phone then we have a problem Houston. Also let me ask the sun of a beach eat sheet and dye shorts (1)would you drive a submarine on land (2)a bus in water (3)ask a fish to walk on land . Answer is no. By that same token you cannot mishandle a sensitive product (aluminimum makes it more light and attractive than plastic sheet) and hope it will not bend etc. Son of a beach eat sheet and dye will say anything to run the market down.

    Thanko.

  • This morning I read the article=Yaton Werder of Citigroup raised the price of GILD from $111 to $139. GREAT NEWS. However I (we) are predicting it to be around $230 next year and then split 5:1 That is my take on it this sunday evening dated September 21, 2014.

    hohoo69 how did you come up with that number? are you thinking of 5:1 split? alternatively either you are on the wrong board or too sleepy from you night job cleaning offices. nothing wrong with cleaning offices but before you post a message you ought to take a rest think it through and take your medicine and then start the computer.
