As has it has done in the past, AGN is a quality
integral pharm company that NEEDS a POSITIVE news press
release to correct this stock. Even though the "insiders"
have sold their stock, there are still PHYSICIANS who
are the biggest factor in keeping this company
"alive" with earnings through the rx's they write for
patients---the DOCS are the "losers" BIG TIME. With the many
years of med school expenses and dedication, the docs
should consider writing competitor's products (Elan,
Bausch&Lomb, Schering, Merck products). It's truly SAD when
AGN doesn't support it shareholders---other drug
stocks have started a turnaround. Isn't it possible for
a positive, honest press release from AGN?!!!
In all my trading years since 1976, this is the
FIRST time I have ever seen a stock go DOWN
(significantly) the last week AND the last day BEFORE an
announced 2:1 split AND an upgrade from PW. I know about
sector rotation, but in view of y2k "scares", wouldn't
institutions want to be in "defensive" drug stocks at this
time of year?!!!Oh well, maybe this is a message to
the "gredy" from the Lord. Let's all pray for mercy.
Thanks for your reply, but I failed to read any
ELN news stories that would affect AGN negatively (I
also own ELN stock)---is Eln's "botox" competitor have
any "edge" over Agn's Botox? Is that the problem?
Would someone be able to offer a comment about
why---with Agn split less than a week away with no
negative(?) fundamentals---this stock is droping hard? Don't
blame it on relationship to JNJ drop in price, because
AGN started down move 4 days before JNJ did. Yet look
at how KING goes way up on similar
fundamentals....what is REALLY wrong with AGN?
Will the newly formed ag merger spinoff include a "spinpoff" of any shares to EXISTING stockholders of AZN? Thanks
If anyone has "possession" of their own RP stock
certificate (not in broker "street name"), WHEN will we
receive a letter of transmittle to send back with the RP
stock cert. so it can be exchanged into NEW Aventis
stock certificate??? Also, is there a "deadline" to
surrender the shares for the exchange. I know the vote
isn't until Dec.15, but the NEW Aventis shares start
trading on NYSE on Dec.20---not long from now..Appreciate
(p.s.Yes, Dave, picked up 1000@22 3/4 to offset
the 1000 bought few months ago at 31 1/16)=2000) Can
someone tell me anything about what ever happened to the
REID portion of the CARNRICK company that was called
REID-CARNRICK "years" prior to the Elan aquisition of
"Carnrick". Didn't the Reid-Carnrick company market as part
of their products a line of DENTAL products
(toothbrushes,etc)? Only those who were familiar with the "former"
company for many years would probably be able to give
some history about the REID portion.
Thanks------llllloooonnngggggg ELN "forever"
Brother Dave--always cherish the relationship you
have with your dog---they are the world's "best"
tranquilizer" when you have a bad day---my three bassethounds
are "in" my personal will! Thanks for your continued
"positive" comments on this board.
This is my last post to those weary of hearing
daily technicals on the "soap opera" life of MM
Fahnstock. Today at 3:00 so far over 52,000 total shares
traded today. With the excetion of a brief drop to 9
15/16, there have been at least two MM supporting bid
price of 10. Are you rrrreeeeeaadddyyyy.....Fahnstock
has sold by himself more than 38,000 of the total
shares and he STILL only "shows" 100 shares available to
sell!!!!!!People are buying today, but Fahnstock is
"shorting"---he's been at it for 5 consecutibe days now. Also, the
shorts can't get hurt if they decide to cover, which
some did today, because they can buy it back
cheap---10 1/16 ALL DAY LONG. Bet the other MM who have
clients to sell at higher orices are burned up---they are
losing trading commissions. I haven't seen a MM dominate
a stock so much in the 3 1/2 years of daily active
stock trading. Good luck to longs...
Fahnstock MM and the doc who left HEPH must be in
collusion with each other---this is the 4th straight day in
a row since bad news that Fahnstock has HELD the
market "top" price at max of 10 1/8 on offer showing
AGAIN only 100 shares available and has sold over 4500.
Last 6000 shares have been 4 trades at 10 1/16,
because the other MM's "know" that the world's biggest
"shorter" is holding a ton of stock to sell short for his
client (Dr P????). So to all "longs", Fahnstock for 4
days has kept a LID on HEPH going higher.
Fahnstock---the most popular stock "shorter" is
doing his thing again todat. Just when there is some
strength in uptick around 11:45am, they show 100 shares at
1/8 and then penny-and-nickel the offer to 1/32 ---4
trades latter go off at his offer,(amounting to 8,500
shares and he REMAINS there at 1/32. Picket Fahn's
corporate office and complain to NASD and SEC. I monitor
HEPH all day long on Level11
To ALL "longs"....I've monitored HEPH for the
last 2 days ALL DAY LONG on Level 11 , and yesterday
market maker Fahnstock "sat" on a TON of shares to sell
at 10 15/16. BBBUTT...he was only showing 100 shares
to sell----which means he sold WELL OVER 18,000
shares yesterday at his offer price. TODAY' Fahnstock
"lowered " his offer to 10 3/4 and sold over 23,000 shares
at that price---BUT he was "showing" only 100 shares
to sell again today. It is an MM trait to do this,
but for such a thinly traded stock, it is
MANIPULATION by the MM to "show" only 100 shares available and
turn around and sell over 40,000 in 2 days. Fahnstock
is "shorting" the stock big time wirh a ton of
shares!!!!MM manipulation!! If Fahnstock is a public company,
let's all SHORT their shares on Monday!!
Could someone who knows phone# of Inv . Rel. please call to get info. on what problem is? Greatly appreciated! Just bought another 1000@22 3/4 earlier today. WE NEED A PRESS RELEASE FROM COMPANY!!!!!
Significant press release about botox on Allergan's news site ("AGN") concerning ...(go to site---it's WORTH the read!!)dated 9-28-99
Yes, datraders CAN,DO, and WILL have a noticeable
affect on this stock when (as you put it) it starts to
"roll" . It's all about MOMEMTUM, my man, and since heph
is not yet widely followed and trades are fairly
thin due to small number os shares outstanding,
SIGNIFICANT moves can be made by daytraderts---and not
dependent on "news" that would normally move the stock. the
GOOD thing is that not many daytraders trade heph
you heard it here first.....I'm a daytrader who
follows the markrt makers time, sales, and size of each
trade in heph as they go off---all day long. At about
3:20pm today marketmaker known as MASH showed 9000
shares to sell---this action panicked the longs and made
potential shorts GREEDY. SSSSOOOOO, that drove the price
down. Nine minutes later, he removed the 9000 shares,
but by then the damage had been done. The previous
buy trade before MASH screwed us went off at 12 7/8
with buyers lined up with up-tick momentum. I tell all
of you this to let you know how maeket makers can
and do MANIPULATE your stock (i.e. "prostituting" the
stock) knowing full well that in a normal markrt with
the average size of trades going off that NO ONE will
be interested in buying 9000 shares. It also wrongly
puts the idea in the heads of long holders that
"something" must be wrong with the company when someone tries
to sell 9000 shares with the average size trade in
heph being 200-1000 shares. oh well---just a lesson in
old fashioned reality---AND what it's like to
prostitute an otherwise formidable company. (by the way,
this all happened after the guy posted his complaints
about the company stopping future options for him to
buy. may or may not be any relation to that situation)
STOCK IS GOOD, AS WELL AS THE COMPANY. I own one
of their fine timeshares in Gatlinburg, Tenn. (two
bedroom "lockout unit) with two "floating" weeks
available per year for "exchange" use or for vacation at
the resort. Personal circumstances force me to have
to sell the unit at about 50% off the current "new"
unit price. reply to this message with contact info.
if interested. Go BXG!
cnbc will interview another online music distributor ceo on monday morning--momentum should carry over to itgr--shorts might be wise to cover!
