  • A personal anecdote regarding OPK and Rayaldee: A couple months ago I was trying to factor insider buying more prominently into my stock analysis. I over heard someone briefly mention OPK and their Chairman's unusual pattern of open market stock purchases. I put it on my watch list almost as an after thought. As I continued my research about the company, I could scarcely believe what I was reading.

    I have Stage IV CKD. The last blood work I had done showed my PTH level at 500. The top end of the "normal" range is 50. I just took my daily dose of Calcitrol a couple of hours ago, it's 500 mg per day with an Rx Vitamin D supplement (50,000 units) every other day. Despite this aggressive regimen my critical levels are almost always dangerously out of balance. The consequence of this is, as the medical literature says, "a significant co-morbidity to the underlying CKD".

    If I can get Rayaldee relatively soon, it will most likely add years to my life. So, given how this stock and the multiple positive financial and personal promise it holds just sort of fell out of the sky into my lap, it does have a feeling of providential direction. Perhaps it is my own personal bias. I hope my hunch works out for all my fellow longs.

    I enjoy many of the thoughtful comments on this board and it stays constructive.

    Sentiment: Strong Buy

    A couple of years ago I saw an obscure promotional clip from one of the studios shot in the early 1930's featuring Groucho talking about one of their upcoming films and clowning around the studio lot. At one point talking about what movies the studio thought were going to be big that year, Groucho launched into a brief tirade on Goldman Sachs. Comparing the reliability of the studio predictions to GS stock recommendations and closing by saying that they were all crooks. He evidently lost a substantial sum in the 29 crash and never trusted the market again.

    As far as the GS call goes on NXPI, I'm with Groucho.
