actually the stock price shows there is 40% upside per the PEG ratio,,,price hasnt reflected earning & growth. 1 guy on twitter keeps shorting GILD because its 'up 100% in a year' ,,,,well GILD will go up another 100% this year, btw,, he also has his sub's shorting NFLX an they are in a lot of pain. DB has a 132 target because from 80,,132 is close to putting GILD are 'fair value' per peg ratio. short need to cover instead of keep piling on and go find a real pig to short. -dips are to be bought.
major european oil company the other day and xom today announced they wont grow investing in exploration--xom says they will cut 6%,, but will instead make the equipment they have work harder.
Exxon to Cut Spending but Sees Production Rising
NEW YORK March 5, 2014 (AP)
Exxon Mobil Corp. says it will cut capital spending by 6 percent this year and overall production will be flat.
HUM ran on UNH coat tails,,,,,,in the end by law,, 80% of all income from selling insurance policies has to be paid out ,,,,,,,,,most of that will go to the drug companies. right now there is a guy on twitter Gareth Soloway +charts bashing GILD for going up 100%+/- in a year,,,,,,,,,well, thats because their earnings are going up faster than the price of the stock (ie PEG ratio and quarterly earnings etc) anyway he just went short along with all of his (paid) subscribers---------meantime he is getting his butt handed to him/them on his NFLX short. GILD peg ratio .61 says fair value would be 116 far higher than the current 82.79. (HUM has a PEG of 1.53,, meaning its overpriced for the actual earnings it makes)
who wants to gamble with their 1 shot at the gold ring with a product that has too much drag.
the mm/spec opened HUM at $91 after e's,, anything above just allows him time to sell his inventory. if HUM had been a nasdaq stock it would have opened around 75 and worked its way to 50.
i think health insurers have bigger risk of bk than hd/hog
right now they are pumping keywords like 'so many young people signed up'
the real question is how many sick people did you sign up vs how many healthy young people.
fact: all humans die by accidents/health
fact: most sick people will let the doctor prescribe any pill/treatment hunting for the magic cure
fact: most drugs/treatments don't actually heal---------but they still get bought (health insurer now has to pay for most of that risk)
HUm (as in ho HUM) put out pr's bragging they got 202,000 new young people signed up.............there are 350,000,000 people in the states,,,,,,,,,,,how many sick people signed up? how many soon to be sick people are going to start addressing those little concerns they didn't admit too on the health form? suddenly people who never went to the doctor,, are going to go to the doctor 'just to be safe and get a check up'..........the doctor receives kickbacks to prescribe any pill for anything real or imagined and the health insurer has to pay it,, and when this pill doesn't fix suzie,, another pill will be prescribed. and so on and so on.
chtr should try to buy nflx or hulu,, chasing twc is stupid since they are not growing. ceo has cancer (good he earnt it) and has ran the co into the dirt and got rewarded for it. twc fv $25

until charter cant make the loan payments lol. basel II,, bank must hold 10% of your deposit/account in actual cash,,,,,,,,,they arent,, they are lending it out to any fool who asks for a loan.
the electric company can provide at 10'xs speed. charter is a buggy whip maker buying another buggy whip maker.
charter to buy twc has been the news for months,, bloomberg pays their reporters for pop percentage of the story. as for charter buying twc,, fair value is around $25 considering their constantly loosing customers and have so much debt. so be grateful a greater fool is out there to buy twc.
