  • Mallinckrodt: Why The Ikaria Acquisition Is Positive For Investors [View article]
    "Can MNK really make the revenue increase faster?" Yes I think so. With MNK's larger hospital presence I don't think it will be a problem. Thank you.

  • 6 Reasons Zillow Is Still Extremely Overpriced [View article]
    "FB another overvalued stock though." What's your definition of the term 'overvalued,' can I humbly ask you? When I wrote the following FB article it was at $21-22 and people were screaming overvalued. Meanwhile, FB quadrupled itself and screamers continued to scream 'overvalued.' Really mysterious, isn't it?

  • 6 Reasons Zillow Is Still Extremely Overpriced [View article]
    Great comment, as I said elsewhere Zillow will be at $221 in one to two years from now (compared to the author's $20-25, with all due respect to him, my projections are ~10x that of the author's). Let's see what happens, but I believe Zillow is another Priceline in the making.

  • DexCom: Post Earnings Pullback To Offer Buying Opportunity [View article]
    Yes Cora Schlesinger, I believe mainly profit taking by the short-term players, with no immediate upside catalyst. Thank you.

  • Please Help Us Pick Outstanding Performance Award Winners For January [View article]
    I nominate the following three articles of myself:

    1. When I wrote the article on Harman International, it was trading around $40 and the stock doubled in a year and almost tripled in two years.

    2. At the time of publishing the article on DexCom, the stock was trading around $21.75 and subsequently it touched $62.85, almost 200% increase.

    3. When I recommended TAL Education, it was trading around $10 and rose to over $37 in the following year.

    I believe all the three stocks played out for the reasons mentioned in the articles, which were simple and convincing for the readers.

    Hi Miha, I believe BIO4 could be close to Grafix in few years, and together with Arthrex Cartiform it could have significant upside. I appreciate your comment. Thanks!

  • Why I Would Rather Own Amazon Than Alibaba [View article]
    Michael Moritz, the chairman of VC firm Sequoia Capital, described the Alibaba IPO as a “major landmark event” that is as significant as the Google IPO, and said Chinese internet companies will create "one global battlefield" with western companies over the next decade. He warned that a lot of US and European companies are still denying the significance of Chinese internet companies, and that the Alibaba IPO will only make more people aware of the booming Chinese tech industry.

  • Apple Take Note - Samsung Has Not Gone Away [View article]

    Brilliant! But I see AAPL @ $110 just after the iPhone 6 release. Read my bearish prediction after the iPhone 5 release by clicking the following link.
    This time I'm bullish.

  • Update: Cepheid Received CE-IVD Mark For Xpert TV Test [View article]
    Dear Glads,

    Sorry for the inconvenience. IVD (In Vitro Diagnostics) devices are regulated by EU Directive 98/79/EC of 27, October 1998. Examples of IVD devices include reactors, instruments, or other devices used for examining sample material from the human body, including blood and tissue samples, for the exclusive or primary purpose of providing information to ensure a correct patient diagnosis.

    The CE-mark is a requirement for selling medical products and equipment in the EU. Additionally, an increasing number of other markets internationally require CE-marking.

    IVD Directive compliance requires that a product is correctly classified. The Directive defines products into List A or List B. DGM is appointed as notified body for IVD devices under the IVD Medical Devices Directive, and can assess and certify quality systems to allow CE marking of products according to the IVD Directive. Hope this helps. Thanks.

  • Update: Johnson & Johnson Facing New Lawsuits On Pinnacle Hips [View article]
    Dear DoctoRx, my reasoning is simple. JNJ is a mega-cap stock that hardly offers significant buy-able dips, and I believe that the recent negative news flow is a shorting opportunity for some investors, who are short-term players. A "direction" of a stock price is the resultant force of different forces, so "Why should retail SA investors pick up their cast-off inventory?" seems invalid to me.

    "Why this new problem isn't a reason to lighten up on JNJ?" -- Well, in spite of the "huge damages" these are minor problems for a $292 billion company.
