    Big shot board members come with experience, that is beneficial to management.

    Do you think that Kathy Ordonez's vast experience is not beneficial to PACB?

    Ideas, and other connections in the business come with board members.

    I personally have had other stocks that new big shot board members were instrumental in the company being acquired by their previous employers.

    boja4...The current stock activity is disagreeing with your opinion.

    If you think superior management has no bearing on the value of the underlying company, you are very mistaken.

    Your analysis of their function in the company is at best comical.

    Experience is the best teacher, experienced management may not make any difference to you, but I'm thinking you are definitely in the minority.

    Both her and Hunkapiller were a big part of building the companies that they were with, and then bought out.

    Coincidence ?

    Their backgrounds are a very close match.

    maitrikaruna In relation to this particular thread, who are you talking to, and what are you talking about ?

    I'm scratching my head trying to figure you out ?

    Okay thanks rekhaus I found it on the NAZ site. That is a shelf registration, which means it's there on the shelf at the ready if needed.

    They may or may not use it, if some opportunity arises then I expect they will, but it doesn't necessarily mean they will use the total amount available, just what is needed.

    Most companies do shelf registrations.

    Would you rather have a high volume pop and drop, or a nice steady accumulation type volume ?

    This stock is being steadily, nicely accumulated.

    Haha... They(Zacks) really don't need to know what's going on behind closed doors.......all they have to do is follow the positive news, just like we are doing.

  • this_isnt_my_real_alias by this_isnt_my_real_alias Nov 20, 2014 11:09 AM Flag

    In October the blog site (Zacks) put an Outperform rating on PACB, yesterday the put a neutral on PACB with a price target of $7.30.

    Kind of ridiculous to initiate an Outperform in October, then in November go Neutral on the stock, especially in light of the positive news releases since then.

    They claim to have a stellar track record, but I myself have followed some of their stock picks in the past, never bought any of them, but just wanted to see how great they were/are, some of the junk they pick as Buys I wouldn't touch with a ten foot pole. The ones they do "pick" that are worthwhile are the obvious ones that most already know about.

    They have about the same influence on stock price as SA writers, in my opinion.

    Yeah, Outperform in October, Neutral in November?

    I guess the better the news gets, the more Neutral they are on the stock ?

    Look at their opinion on PACB on October 22, it's on the main page for PACB here on Yahoo.

    Hey darkhorseinvestor.......The guy took $5 MILLION out of his pocket and bought $5 MILLION worth of PACB shares, from June to August 2014.

    Question: Do you think he made this purchase with LACK of confidence in PACB ?

    Your question kind of amazes me.

  • this_isnt_my_real_alias by this_isnt_my_real_alias Nov 11, 2014 1:12 AM Flag

    I bet he's real happy already.

    There are various reasons for an insider to sell their stock, but there is only ONE main reason they buy.

    They have a much better view/idea where the stock is eventually going than we do.

    And he did not buy just a token amount.

    He likey what he sees.

    Then take just a few seconds of time to think if you've ever seen a company of the size of Pacific Biosciences with a CEO of his magnitude.

    Simply check out his background........and what he has accomplished.

    I have had in a long long time, no doubt about it.

    People that are daytrading this stock, or flipping or whatever they call it are eventually going to have a nagging annoying pain of watching the stock in it's upward trend.

    I believe there will come a day the stock will routinely move as much as the current selling price in one day of trading.

    Always remember one very important fact in the stockmarket................long term capital gains against short term capital gains, Uncle Sammy loves the massive amount of capital forwarded to them from the short term traders, as compared to the long term holders.

    The penalty ($) for short term trading is immense.

    That's always a good sign technically. The first bullish flag lasted 5 days before advancing, the second bullish flag lasted 4 days before advancing, now we're in the third bullish flag, for 5 days so far.

    Bullish flags make their initial move on much larger than normal daily volume, that first move is called the "flagpole" then the stock consolidates at, or near the top of the flagpole, which resembles a flag or pennant on the chart, an during consolidation the daily volume dissipates during the consolidation. That is a sign that the current holders are comfortable with the current stock price, while the profit takers are leaving, other side-liners are waiting and hoping for a big move down to come off the sidelines and enter, if and when that downward move does not occur.............AND the volume has dried up , that means the selling pressure is all but gone, and the side liners have no choice but to now enter......and the next leg up begins.
