How on earth this stock will go back to even $6 next week. The company has no other clinical trials. Its Pipeline is empty. Some news may push the stock up 1 or 2 dollars at the most. Trading at this stage may yield little profit for day traders. But as a long or intermediate investment, this stock poses a risk beyond retail investors’ tolerance
Many investors pretend that buying a stock like VLT is not a speculative investment with all the risk and reward that comes with it. Today the risk has materialized, and the agony of losing big will live on for a while. If you want to invest in pharmaceutical stocks you must have a portfolio of small, medium, and large cap if you can afford it. But under no circumstance you should invest in one small cap pharma company hoping that you will strike it rich.
How could you tolerate this stock that will never put a smile on your face? It will keep vacillating within the same range for months to come. If you watch it you go crazy. Leave it alone till next earnings. Only God knows what the future holds for this stock. But remember, it is a loco.
There is nothing for the SEC to investigate. Not many investors were enamored of loco to start with. Shares plunged because Investors reacted negatively when loco quarterly results came below the Street’s expectation. I Know management is not a head of the game when it comes to reporting earnings. Management should have anticipated the miss, and should have done all it can to avoid this short fall in revenue. We know El Pollo has almost 400 stores, and each store needed to increase revenue by $10,000 in the quarter to avoid this disaster. In the food industry this should be achieved with minimal effort. The current share price is undervalued, but not by much. As a long term investment it is ok to hold on your shares, but do not expect short term excitement. Some agonizing days may be a head of us.
Greed blinds people to reality. Some people made a lot of money, and some people lost a lot. A lesson to be learned, of course, at high cost to those who bought yesterday at high price.
Do not feel bad If you chased the stock while it was climbing. I learned my lesson a couple of months ago when I bought into AXN. I was chasing illusion. I call this mirage trading. Here is the definition of mirage from the dictionary: something illusory, without substance or reality.
You will change your assessment of GMCR next week. $60.00 is the next Friday's closing price. You see, I am giving you a number that either will be right or wrong. Next week your reply to my post should be right on man.
Watching the price of GILD going down is mind boggling. The company is solid like a rock. Last reported results were outstanding. The P/E is fantastic. As a small investor, I sometimes become skeptical of the significance of Fundamentals. Sometimes I think the stock is manipulated. Often I lament the time when I could make 5% on my money by investing it in a CD. Please do not tell me that investing in the stock market does not stress you when you see your portfolio dwindling. I am just releasing some frustration, nothing more.
Someone is trying to bring the price down so he can buy your share before earnings are released. A financial analysts today gave us several scenarios of what may happen after earnings. Scenarias are basically predictions without any significance. After they do the damage they usually complement the stock, and then tell you not to worry about the short term. Long term prespective is what matters. Do not think articles with th same tactics are innocent
Never. APPLE will surge back to $130.00 tomorrow. Investors are overreacting and misunderstanding the earnings report. This is a giant company and a little wind wont shake it. Wait till tomorrow before you disregard what I said.
I am being conservative at $315. This is not only a pharmaceutical company, but also a national asset. People with hepatitis C are being cured by Gild; it is a life saver. You can't put an economic value on a company like this one knowing that it will save millions of people worldwide from certain prolonged sickness, and ultimately an agonizing death.
Are you trying to capitalize on today’s oil weakness to spread fear and pessimism? No one needs to entertain your hypothetical and unfounded statement at this time? If oil drops to $42 we will have to cope with more serious issues than your meager investment in UWTI, if you have any.
Management will not interfere directly in the stock. They can do certain things to stop the carnage like buy back. Unfortunately, LOCO does not have the cash to buy back its stock. I personally failed to make any money on this stock, and after the third attempt I sold out.
The stock has been sold short for a long time. It is a battle between shorts and longs, and the shorts are suffocating the stock. LOCO needs a big Catalyst to trigger covering, and then a squeeze will push up the price 20 % to start with. Until then you can hold or sell and reenter the market when LOCO starts the recovery phase. For the time being, keep watching the stock for a big catalyst. There are stock that I call bottomless; LOCO is one of them.
Analysts are not omniscient. Half of the time they are wrong. Sometimes they are deadly wrong. We need to remember that when analysts talk, they talk about our money not theirs. Please note whenever they write about a stock they always qualify their analysis by inserting words such as: Could instead of will / Potential / possible/ etc. All in all, you are better off not to buy a stock base on the analysis you read here and there.
