"figured put how to fix the nation, cure a ravaged political system, rehabilitate a slew of deficient candidates.." With all due respect there is no one I see in the news every night that's going to help there!! :) :). Unless maybe that Libertarian candidate. Didn't he take his clothes off on stage? How can you not like that guy?
OK, that's it for political s***... (Rhymes, my new slogan).
Yes EXEL.. It's been a long road to Tupelo (and a long road to Belfast City too). Trivia: Who said that?
Thanks again for being you! Excelsior!
RE: Your reply to me on that thread now deleted....
Nice post, and I appreciate the sentiment. And I have always appreciated your contributions to this board..in fact have told you that several times in the past. This is a great board and you are one of the reasons. Its painful however, to see you engaging (and provoking) this stuff. Your'e better than that I know. Thanks again..Pals it is. Keep your testicles too, once every six weeks or so they come in handy
'heartless meanies like me..' I was thinking more like insecure, thin skinned, low class, identical to those you attempt to torment.. Can't tell the difference any longer. In some cultures you argue with a fool, and no one can tell the difference which is where you have been for quite some time. But I'll listen to my own advice and not argue with a fool, so go for it..You own it, your board...
And you more than anyone else got sucked in, your ego so easily bruised. Why you, unprovoked no less, continued to antagonize, like a school yard grade school bully, is beyond me. So what becomes of this calling out? Why this time it will be different of course. Yes this time they will all surrender, admit defeat, and go quietly into the night. But if they don't, and this board once again dissintegrates into the mindless time wasting, name calling that is sooo prevalent on every other message board, what's your response? "They started it" ? Yes Wilder they started it...
I follow about 3 dozen Bios, own 4. Of these, 2 are at 90% below their 52 week high, the lowest in the group, KBIO and Valeant (tough to be Ackman). The rest from mid 80% down to as low as 20% down. Only 2 (again of the 36 I follow), are below 20% at all, and in fact they are in the single digits. One is EXEL at 7.49% below its 52 week high and the other BMY at 3.19%. That's good company..
And that's just awesome, especially for those who have been holding long for what seems to be forever. Never know what's next but a congratulations to those holding long while it can still be said. Good luck..
To all you guys...let it go, the board is begging you. Who #$%$**** cares? You remind the rest of us of a bunch of 6 year olds in the back of the car tormenting their parents on a long trip with your inane and relentless badgering of eachother to the point of extreme annoyance, like finger nails on a chalk board. Just let it go, use your ignore option like the rest of us did with this guy and anyone else that bothers you.
In the PR, MM said this, “The overall survival data for cabozantinib from the METEOR trial represent an important milestone in the treatment of advanced renal cell carcinoma. When taken alongside data from the trial’s other endpoints, this result makes cabozantinib the first therapy to demonstrate improvements in the three key measures of efficacy in a large randomized phase 3 trial of patients with this advanced form of cancer."
From the original release of the 'stat-sig' statement, and the months leading up to this, they have certainly set expectations. It'd be inexplicable to make this statement above, and then announce uninspiring OS results, IMO. EXEL has given us all blue balls....Hoping for some 'relief'.
Treats NASH liver disease. Gilead under pressure to increase its 'liver' pipeline to supplement its waning hepatitis drug. The Nimbus drug is not even out of phase II yet. Paid $400 million. Hmmm. Looking to expand its liver pipeline .......
I feel your pain but with all due respect, and I mean that, and not that I have to defend Ernie (God knows he's attempted to spank me a few times), but I will say if nothing else he's transparent. And he trades, even though I believe his long term bias is long. I like hearing the analyses of traders (including short traders). They don't have blinders on. So as long as you know that, you take all that into consideration when you digest there calls/analysis. My stupid opinion anyway...Good luck. I'm hanging in there with you, too long for too long. LOL!
An 'Infrastructure Engineer' is simply a relatively low level IT position. They are saying they need someone (every organization does) to install IT (information Technology) systems that support e-mail, HR systems, maybe an ERP system. And its very likely that much of the IT Infrastructure (think hardware and software) would be implemented in the cloud with very little actual hardware on premise anyway. This person would report to a CTO, or Director of Infrastructure, or a CIO, etc. Its a worker bee position. Don't get confused witt the "Engineer" part of the title. They may be replacing someone, but as important a function as this position may be, these guys are a dime a dozen. This is my business, so my 2 cents..
Mostly directed to Ernie.
First your explanations, analysis, your rationale for your recent transactions were excellent as always and like most here I enjoy reading them. But most recently there was a long thread regarding the SP itself and most lamenting why after all this news (since August) and especially the JV announcement and details it still languishes. Your (and others here) all had provided a great expose on the convertible debt and the eventual bills coming due in the next several years. OK, I get it. But when you sold at $5.30 in December, the issue associated with the converts and the debt was in place back then too. At the time you lamented the lack of a JV deal among other things and the possible need for a secondary because of it. . So fast forward less than 3 months later, they have that deal. There is much more clarity regarding their finances, great OS results, another JV coming for Japan. Compared to December the state of EXEL is much clearer, and a whole lot better. 'Logic' would say, hey the SP should now reflect all this. Like I said, the Convert issue never went away, and in so many ways, EXEL is in a much better shape. What has changed that dramatically from December that could possibly explain the current languishing SP down over 30%? Anyone?
Go to IPSEY stock quote and look at recent news articles (wouldnt allow me to cut and paste). There is a Jan 16th story about how Ipsen realized they need to get aggressively into the cancer market and needed to make deals. Went to JP Morgan Chase conference recently in SF looking to talk up partners. They have cash up the ying yang and were motivated to get in the cancer market. Good for EXEL.
Thank you friend. I said it tongue in cheek and hoping I didn't say it too early. This stock has its moments after all. Would love to hear you did jumped in. If not jump in tomorrow. Hopefully plenty of upside ahead.
A few weeks ago, seemingly minutes after EXEL releases the OS news on METEOR, AF published an article that one can argue had all intentions to simply undermine the good news. It was released so quickly it was if he had it pre-written with his finger on the publish button waiting on the EXEL PR. So how about it AF, how about an 'attaboy' for your butt boy EXEL?
