  • Alimera Vs. pSivida, A Comprehensive Comparison
    Mar. 21, 2014 ALIM, PSDV 1 Comment


    • Alimera and pSivida are partners on ILUVIEN. 16 articles have been published focusing on pSivida since June. Only 1 has focused on Alimera, resulting in a brief Alimera discount.
    • In order to fully grasp the potential of ILUVIEN in terms of ROI, knowledge of both companies is essential.
    • Alimera gets 80% of ILUVIEN revenues, pSivida 20%. Alimera is trialing ILUVIEN for macular degeneration and retinal vein occlusion, while pSivida is developing fourth-generation insert Tethadur.
    • Alimera is a more leveraged play on ILUVIEN specifically, while pSivida is a more varied play on ocular implant technology in general.
  • Excess Reserves: The Elephant In The Room The Fed Doesn't Want To Talk About
    Mar. 8, 2014 BND, DBA, UUP 275 Comments


    • Excess reserves in the financial system currently stand at $2.5T, or 95% of total reserves, historically unprecedented. The previous peak was 55% in 1935 during the Great Depression.
    • Any tapering or increase in QE is therefore meaningless, as the money is not entering the system anyway in response to Fed actions.
    • The Fed has effectively lost control of the money supply, and almost any way you look at it, bonds will soon be crushed.
