  • Not Enough Cash For Sunshine Heart [View article]
    Another point mr Savrieno missed is that unlike with drugs the medical equipment companies get paid for their devices during the trials. This limits the losses.

  • Why Sales Estimates for Dendreon's Provenge Are Too Low [View article]
    I got the number of Hormone refractory failures from the company's presentation at Merril Lynch last week. They put the number at 140,300 for some reason I thought it was 180,000.

    Remember, there are over 2 million men in the US that have had at one point or do currently have prostate cancer. Some do die from other things and some are completely cured, but very many become hormone refractory too. I was using the incidence number to try and figure out some sort of sales estimate. I am sure one can get a different number using the prevalence.

    Funny, because I found an article in the WSJ from 2012 where Cisco said they were going to destroy Arista and here we are 2 years later.

    I can see estimating 50-60% growth for the year. Makes it easier to beat estimates.

  • Francesca Holdings - The Best Idea In Retail At A Discount [View article]
    Full disclosure. I sold some of my oversized position in FRAN got it down to more normal position size for my portfolio.
    Stock is stalling here around $29 would feel better if it got back to $30 level.

    Furthermore now that the founders have left the company there is no connection between management and the suppliers.

    I don't know Mr Davis ,but as I stated in the article Ms Backes is a very impressive individual.

    Yes Tom I have. I dont believe there is anything unusual going on it is not unusual in the private label wold to use people you are close to as your suppliers. Other public companies in retail do it as well. Everything was disclosed in SEC filings.

    Maybe if it were 80% and not 20% I would be more worried

    PER has the rights to roylties to 70% of production through 2031. One would assume these fields would have value in case SD went under .

    There is a provision in the trust agreement that if cash flow from the wells are below a certain amount for 4 consecutive quarters the trustee has the right to sell the royalty interest and distribute it to shareholders.
    However if you think SD is going bankrupt I would not buy this stock.

    no question if SD goes under, PER will come under pressure but PER's assets would be unaffected long term.

    SD survived 2008 when oil was under $50 and if we get something worse than 2008 SD will be the least of my worries.

  • Magnum Hunter: Small Driller With Huge Potential, Hidden Assets [View article]
    Thanks. I wasn't projecting production but I think its safe to say the company's forecast for production is on track.

    I don't know if they spin off the MLP as a dividend to holders or as a means to raise cash in an ipo. My guess is a combination.

  • SuperMedia: Unparalleled Value and Unique Turnaround Play in One [View article]
    I sold my SPMD after the last earnings report . Revenue is definitely declining faster than expected and the turnaround promised from super guarantee has not materialized. I think the company will be lucky now to earn $5 this year which means the stock is no longer cheap by any means, if one factors in the secular decline of the yellow pages business.

    I agree with you on the pricing. I would like to see them price Provenge in the $60-70,000 range, the last thing Dendreon needs is a backlash.
