  • I like this model...appears market neutral . does well in up or down markets...as people still place their bets...which is the model it is. I keep hoping for a pull back to add more....I like its lack of huge swings...big money knows...steady stream of income no matter what market is doing......is my largest holding.....always with stops in place..but I think this one stops should be WAY away form market noise....

    Sentiment: Strong Buy

  • CBOE should do will in bull or bear market environments...look at how it makes money..doesnt matter what kind of market we are in. Is a core holding for me..looking to add more...hoping market will dump all to include CBOE ...look at its profile you all..may have to bite it..and just buy more..if doesnt go down..but market doesnt matter for CBOE...good luck alll

    Any company that gets even through gate number 1 with Hep C as treatment will be on fire, Hep C is easy to get and no cure and usually ends in cirrhosis and liver cancer. It is a HUGE problem here in US and all over the world...place your bets. ABBV hast he advantage in many respects, as a drug company it already has standard of care drugs. I dread every time I have a body fluid exposure at work...over hep c, I worrry little about Ebola...hep C scares me ....so I buy ABBV on dips, and continue to add....was nice it is now seperate from ABT so is a pure play on drugs. Good luck all

  • With a diseae that has a 50% + mortality rate, hospitals and physiicans will be force to try " anything", which drug, which company, I have no idea. And NO insurance company will win the figtht of not "proven", the really question is which company , which therapy? I will look into what my ID docs think is has the the most poetntial hera nd repost. This is a big deal. No family , nor physisian is going to not going to say : supportive care only" when there are meds that may or may mot make a difference. This reminds of the HIV in the 1980s. While we have not develped a vaccine, people now live for DECADES with HIV when back in the 1980s, it was essentailly a death sentence. I watched them die every day ...now with meds, patients with HIV live for DECADES....Ebola is very much like HIV bak then. Who and what drug(s) will offer a patient a better chance than supportive care is uncertain at this point. But it is early . This is a chance of a lifetime to make (or lose) a retirement . I think Ebola is te chance of a lifetime to make or lose a lot of money.....IF a drug shows increased survival,, it will be standard of care to offer it. A vaccine would great longer term, so acute treatment and vaccine are 2 areas to watch . Is a public and human issue. One of those issues that transcends "finances"...We all win if we are ahead of others ..on both acute treatment and long erm issue of a vaccine...even if vacine is only say...50% effective...it will become the standard of care....
    This is a chance of a lifetime, financially and humane ....
    I wish I had enough to just invest in all companies in this area...maybe investing with a stop limit sell order is the way to play it...I dont know...I do know this issue is not going away and whoever wins in this battle , willl make risk takers rich...and wrong choice make one poor.. Ebola has been around for awhile. The implications of it crossing into other countries in HUGE ..a world that is now a global ecoomy

    I may lose my shirt, but will stay the course. Have double down a few times...Like the insider buys. No intstant gratification here. Patience , I think longs at these levels will be rewarded ...Good luck all

    analysts are not woth reading...buy ofen means sell. dont trust them . after buying in sinlge digit ranage...thing I will put a stop sell in now...what goes up usually comes down....good luck all

  • I spead my beats, but Hep C is a huge medical issue, anyone company that has some part of this is going to be standard of care.....I place biggest bet on ABBV...some on GILD...this is a huge medical issue...

  • I went long ..years ago...still under water...but will hang in there...if we make it into the 4 range...I will put a stop in...but still hang in there...I have a large position...I am patient. I think I am right on this one. No crystal ball....good luck all..

    Sentiment: Buy

    on a tech basis and metal prices...I suspect no where to go but slowly up. volume not enough to predict but I am long here for the long term. This is one of those stocks if you just hold your nose and stop looking at every day, it will reward you over the long run ...

    Sentiment: Buy

  • tonasket75 by tonasket75 Apr 17, 2014 1:52 AM Flag

    up or down market, options market and fees still there. I think a long term core stock for this reason.

    Sentiment: Buy

    Depends on your time frame, I am holding this long term...once in awhile a company is a home run...this is one of those companies that could be big home run...in for long term here.
