  • This entire sector/Drug Stores is on or should be the upswing.
    I don’t know why anyone would believe otherwise. Once again; ACA, Demographics, (population getting older) steady improvement in the Economy. Also for an immediate kicker we are some 65 days from cold and flu season.

    I agree! This is another way of saying what I am trying to get at. The future earnings should be a drive in moving the stock price. The entire drug store sector will be moving forward as the market for that retail will increase. Something is holding this back???

    From my point of view the whole drug store sector will be going up over the long term.
    Why just look at the Affordable Care Act, the USA demographics, and the current but slow job growth.
    What in the world are the sellers doing?? What better place to put your money?? This is a turn around company that is at the end of the beginning of the turnaround. Could be some game playing here buy someone trying to sneak in the back door on the cheap.

  • Come back and see me 2016

    Up, down, down, up! Look most of us can’t time the market we have jobs and families.
    The long term direction looks pretty good to me. We have seen continue improvements in all areas of the business. The company is managing/steering a path that will sustain it.
    Soon expect RAD to stand with their competitors with a similar stock price.

  • The market is in a mood, we have gone from investments to casino mode, looks like this storm may last a little while.

    Insmed is not making widgets. They are a biotech development company. You know development where you must meet FDA and federal regulations.
    This sector will always be volatile. The “quick fix” traders rule for now. Both longs and shorts.
    The next positive news will quickly make up all of the losses plus! Don’t you all really down deep know this to be true?
    The company has the same potential pipe line it had this past June!

    Hard to watch this beat down!
    Nothing in the news to point to as a cause. Has to be folks wanting to see lots of positive movement upward and RIGHT NOW.
    Since they are not seeing an immediate move they are taking their money elsewhere.
    In the long run that is to say before the snow flies me thinks we are okay!
    What say you?

    36,000 and looking for more. Best deal on the market today.
    Keep it coming, this is an investors dream!

    I know what I am going to do, keep buying. Can’t get enough of a good thing. These shares that I keep on buying every time I can shake a few bucks loose, in the long run will be wonderful for my retirement.
    I suppose I could try to time the ups and downs to channel this guy, but that’s not for me.
    In a few years I will start the reverse and sell my $25/$30 shares a little at a time over five years.

    Oversold..........

    This is getting UGLY!
    I am positive that this will turn out just fine in the long run. Nothing much has changed on the ground.
    The lemmings will do what they do. Yet it is still ugly to watch; I like you believe this is safe money in the end.

    The story in a nut shell is the price earnings ratio now and in the future.
    All of the rest is just noise.

    It really does not matter what the current Stock price is (with in this range) since I do not plan on selling anytime soon. In case of a spike in the price the same holds…..not sellin!
    See you all down the road when it is harvest time!

    It is a LOT more fun as an investor (that is buying and holding for the long term) when after YOU buy then the stock goes straight up, without pause.
    Since the world usually does not work that way we all say “would have”, “should have” “could have”.
    I don’t like this anymore than anyone else who is long, however this pop up storm will not last.
    The fundamentals are what they are; slowly, but sure footedly we will be back to green, of this I am sure!

    Folks it is always the same, when a stock moves down to a certain point the “trailing stops” kick in causing additional selling.
    Not to worry, we will be back up in the morning still a good value under ten bucks. Could very well be up quite a bit more by years end. We have a good team of leadership which has proven skills!
    What’s not to like? Things are now and are going to get much better with time!

    TOO LOW

    thinkabout1120 thinkabout1120 Jun 9, 2014 12:10 PM Flag

    Well when you are long, up every day is a lot more fun. Hold back your tears though we will be back to north bound soon enough!

    Sentiment: Strong Buy

  • Rarely do you get such a wonderful buying opportunity.
    Slowly but surely through accumulation/cost averaging on dips and continued improvements as we have seen by the “ground game” at the stores profitability it will work out just fine.
    Every month the debit goes down. Not to worry just keep picking up cheap shares!

    Not going to be a straight line up

    RAD is a gift that keeps on giving. The stock price of course will not be a straight run up.
    However, I will keep buying this stock under $10.00 as it is the best deal on the market. Any time I can shake loose a few more dollars it will be for additional RAD.
    I cannot nor can anyone else pick the timing of the highs and lows but in the long run this is a wonderful bargain. Don’t you all think so?

    Well you sold something that you did not own, You are going to be in a whole lot of trouble when they want it back.
    As a long I can sit here and wait sorry you can’t!!

  • Ouch!!

    Well this is behaving like a typical Biotech. Greed and Fear based on the reported results.
    What happens here is once it start going down the stop loss and trailing stops are triggered which of course sends it down more. This then cause a panic in the ranks which causes more selling.
    I still believe that INSM is a good value in the long run. In fact I would be surprised if another Biotech would take a position here on the cheap.
    I don’t like blood on the floor particularly when it is my blood. Wish I could guess the tops and bottoms that some claim they can do here on the board.
    I am going to stick around. Would not be surprised to see “a healing” to the bloodshed in the morning.
