    Check the report that showed expenses regarding compensation up more then usual! Same ol Avi! He is either clueless or thinks he has his golden parachute and can take advantage of retail shareholders who likely don't hold any preferred which is capital to GIG! Look at all the crazy acquisitions Avi tries to pull off and that's not just wishing but expensive speculation in an hostile manner! How much money has he wasted since his last acquisition Endwave! Sad that Avi fails with bitcoins, and how much did it cost to win a bit with his litigation case? Happy I get his poor management skills on how to run a company and while I thought at one time this was a promising company, I made over 700% with a biotech company that was bought by a Japanese company! My cyber security company is up big and my other biotech owned just this year is up over 50%! I want even tell you about my AAPL holding but yeah owned a little and alot more when they announced their 7-1 stock split and just yesterday raised their dividend by double digits so it's nice not to put all your eggs in one basket! Even bought more AAPL this year so just up 35% just this year! Avi grew his GIG by half and why I sold a few before the news of earnings and now if my Asian stocks could catch fire! Oh well if you want some bad news my oil and gas is lagging! My 3D stocks are lagging! So it's not all paradise but if Avi sells over ten, I plan on buying someone a steak dinner!

    Smart money accumulating

    Sold some I had bought about two years ago and netted a cool 40%! Kind of know what Avi feels like now! LOL! Just don't need Avi selling company under $5! Feel like if someone could clue him in that his totalpay will be based on performance then this stockcould climb but if it falls back down itmwill be same ol Avi and hopefully my sold shares are ones he had to buy over$1.55! It could also mean Avi is buying another company that doesn't really do much for the buildout of GIG! Wonder how much money we still have from ENDW?

  • Talking about Russian hackers on Government computers! I'm surprized they can afford it in Moscow but guess Lil Putin decided to stimulate his economy by letting go of some of his personal billions! Amazed how he amassed it but guess someare willing togive it to him to stay in his good graces!

    We know how right AF was with AVNR with just their one drug approval! Talked about generic competition and litigation and like Ray found himself on the wrong side except that AVNR probably sold $5-$10 cheaper then if he had not continually attacked them and allowed Otsuka to offer the $17 then the $20-$25 most felt it should have received!

    GIG did alot of their revenue with ALU! Nokia is closely related with MSFT! Will Avi be able to keep the revenues and adding with this new news! ALU shareholder will receive like .55shares of NOK and it looks like a stock merger which gives the holders about a 28% premium above the current price but well below the price when Alcatel bought the Lucent Technologies back in 2012!

    Sentiment: Hold

    This sounds almost like the ol AVNR board! Remember the day the stock went up 85% and went from $8 to $15 Most had been upset with the PP KK had done to get the deal done! Then Otsuka makes the announcement for the $17 buyout! I made Sarge happy today by getting shares of SPPI! Can't believe it had fallen that hard and I still have dry powder for FEYE, ARIA, and SPPI! Can't compete with the Big Boys but have enough to make me one happy camper! Makes up for the oil & gas holdings but still like the market I'm at new highs! Actually my big techs have kept me smiling but the three above mentioned will be like icing on the large cake! Gotta love it!

    Sentiment: Strong Buy

    I'm not short but picked up a few and I could have done it by selling puts but decided it was cheap enough to take some off the weak hands holding it and it was fun picking them off! kind of like fishing and while the lake has plenty more, I will likely see this go higher then Otsuka's buyout of AVNR! Think it could take about three years but that will be here in no time! I bought a ton of AVNR under $2 and saw it get bought for $17! Own alot of ARIA as well but my main holds are the big value names and yes AAPL is one and haven't sold but bought more even after the 7-1 stock split! Thanks shorty for your cheap shares! Perhaps you bought them last week below $5.60! Yeah right!

    Hey Sarge! Just asked about you on the ARIA board! Enjoying our AVNR profits and bought a boatload of ARIA in the $6's and it's approaching the 9's as I post! Guess to give me just a bit more that I didn't feel we fully got from KK but it was very very very good to me! Might take a look over here and see if I can at least enjoy a little lobster and at least keep up with the bunker reporting! Congrats and keep up the great work! Glad Mikie's keeping up with ya! He seems to be doing great and having fun as usual!

    He is likely thinking he can hold out til positive news on Brig and then either partner with Big pharma orsell! Remember when AVNR did that partnership with MRK and then Otsuka snuck in behind and bought the whole enchilada before the FDA final approval for ALZ and KK appeased the retail holders and gave them a pretty good return! Like in The Sting it just wasn't enough but it will do! Wonder what the ol Sarge and other longs are doing outside of the bunker?

    ASPX bought by Teva today was a $30 stock and then a $60 stock and WOW Teca pays $100 for it! $32B dollars and don't forget UHC bought a pharmaceutical company to help with the high cost of brand name prescriptions! Love today's action and Duke University made a major breakthrogh with a cure.Four biotechs bought today and what a way to end the Quarter!

    Like INTC that bought his McAfee, he has a time and price! What will trigger it will be if he can get the right deal he can't turn down! I don't think he will sell it to John Chambers but Larry Ellison might feel intrigued to add it to his piggy bank or Softbank of Japan might be a suitor as well! I don't think it happens this year but 2016 could be the time if the price is right! FWIW JMHO!

    Was not a bad deal when I bought my wife instead of chocolate shares in Cadbury and now it's three different entities with Dr Pepper, Mondelez, the snack portion of Kraft and now Kraft Heinz the new company and getting a special dividend of $16.50/sh and the stock price is up 26% today! All three pay dividends and I'm sitting pretty happy this morning! Holding strong my ARIA shares which I just have a lot more of!

    sell CAT, buy AAPL

    Looks like the market agreed with my assessment! Agreed though that not everyone has the same strategy or time frame on CAT Nice move and turn today and yes markets react to Janet's words! If she had said she's going to raise rates in June then the Bears would have had a parade on the MB!

    Sentiment: Strong Buy

    They just filed a $30M mixed shelf offering! What the proceeds will do besides paying Avi and his cronies is up to your imagination! If they were making money this would make sense and his attempt to acquire a company went nowhere!

    Actually I own both and bought more AAPL even with my 7-1split and just bgought CAT! The strong dollar and weaker China hurts CAT but still think CAT is undervalued! Will see if Janet helps out tomorrow! Housing numbers today makes me think she will still be patient!

    ARIA is a perfect Buyout candidate- $20+

    Actually I bought more AAPL @ $122! Used my AVNR profits and put alot into FEYE! Actually own alot more ARIA shares but less then $10 versus $35-$40 makes that happen! After Brig think this could go to the teens and not sure Otsuka will buy out like AVNR but like the extended playout where I thought AVNR could have gone to $25 but got $17 plus call money on alot of the shares and they were the $17 calls! Go figure but those were my trading shares instead of my long core holding! Not sure AAPL will go to $203 like Papa Carl suggest but think it is undervalued! Hope they surprize this year withnice divy increase and loved the 7-1 stock split last time! Just evening my lots! LOL!
