You are kidding right, what kind of idiot cares what a price is in the aftermarket. Talk about amateur hour.
By the way, ALKS closed at 69.51 on Feb 6, making back almost all of the downdraft. Going short this stock is a highway to bankruptcy.
Our clueless, pseudo-intellectual narcissist of a president (notice deliberate lower case use) has targeted the financial services industry. Until this clown is gone, banks, brokers, money managers etc will not reach potential.
With 7.5% div at current price, 22 is not likely. If it does come, buy with both hands. Today it traded down the amount of the dividend (today was X date) and considering the Dow was down 300+, that is pretty impressive.
Yellen announced initiating coverage on the biotech industry today with a "sell" recommendation. It knocked hell out of the stocks, includings ALKS. Thanks Janet, it is a lovely buying opportunity.
Nah, news of deals always leaks. the stock would be way up on Thursday if a deal was coming. Besides, who closes a deal on July 4th weekend.
The frauds posting on this board are those who regularly reported the Brother were selling, despite the lack of Form 4's being filed. The only reason they are not facing an SEC investigation is that the staff doesn't believe these boards matter. Too bad.
Nah, we bulls saw the pop and got in and out before it fell. Your money is in my pocket. As for the core holdings, I will still have those five years from now unless we are bought out. This company is a leader in this industry, and taking the time to build its foundation is great management.
I have never understood the animosity of Zacks to this stock. When the stock price was climbing for years, Zacks was a "hold" and bad mouthed the one trick pony. Now there is a pipeline and multiple products, and Zacks is in its glory. They could be made fools of in a single day with a buyout, and in any case are a year away from being very wrong again. If you are a talented analyst, why would you work for Zack? That is where you go when you don't make it at a Street firm.
Interesting. Wall Street Journal publishes favorable story about prostate treatment and the stock has been up a couple of days. If I were an SEC examiner, I would be looking for evidence of early knowledge of the publication to come. Let's see the next Form 4's to see who are the really smart guys.
End of the line for the lead bullet? Regulations, bans force switch to 'green' ammo
By Perry Chiaramonte/
This can only do wonders for copper demand:
The Army's new round replaces the current M855 5.56mm cartridge that has been used by U.S. troops since the early 1980s. The Army claims the M855A1 is more dependable, a more consistent performer, improves accuracy, moves faster. (U.S. Army)
When the last bullet-producing lead smelter closes its doors on Dec. 31, it will mark a major victory for those who say lead-based ammunition pollutes the environment, but others warn 'green' bullets will cost more, drive up copper prices and do little to help conservation.
The bid to ban lead bullets, seen by some as harmful to the environment, started slowly more than a decade ago. But with two dozen states, including California, banning bullets made of the soft, heavy metal, the lead bullet's epitaph was already being written when the federal government finished it off.
First, the military announced plans to phase out lead bullets by 2018.
"Whatever the EPA's motivation when creating the new lead air quality standard, increasingly restrictive regulation of lead is likely to affect the production and cost of traditional ammunition."
Then the federal Environmental Protection Agency, citing emissions, ordered the shutdown of the Doe Run company's lead smelter in Herculaneum, Mo., by year's end.
Whether by state or federal regulation, or by market forces, lead bullets will be all but phased out within a few years in favor of so-called green bullets, experts say. While many believe that this will help the environment by keeping lead from contaminating groundwater, others say switching to copper-based bullets will cost hunters and sportsmen more and have little effect on the environment.
