  • A123 Systems (AONE -10.7%) crashed to a new low of $0.28 today in the absence of major news. Shares are now 40% below the level they traded at before A123 announced a giant and controversial financing deal with China's Wanxiang Group. The Street may be worried the deal will fall through due to political concerns, or will be dilutive to the point where existing shareholders are left with very little. [View news story]
    This is speculators dream...that is if you have "spare" cash laying around. One small piece of news could double this overnight. It is inconceivable that the principles involved with this company are not sitting in a room crafting a strategy to get this stock back up to a buck....if they are not, they will be subject to lawsuits for ignoring their fiduciary duty to shareholders. I'm in on this one.

  • Burger Wars Heat Up As Wendy's Moves Into No. 2 Slot [View article]
    Say, if you happen to find one of their new stores out there, I would appreciate some pics...On earnings, the first quarter will be soft or down as expected. I would look for earnigs improvement in the third or fourth quarters. This for me is long term holding. I am quite willing to tolerate a 100% return over a two or three year period.

    Keep in mind, often what is stated publicly and what later gets disclosed in an annual report or prospectus is often two different things. Cypress originally did not intend to purchase CMOs....but as time moves forward so does their aggression up the risk scale...and seeing AIG was the Housing Bubble Shill.....I would not hold me breath on thy(their) word as Gospel...

    As a follow on to the article, I would point the reader to an article just coming out that states AIG is about to jump into this market. My assessment of what will happen here is this: All the big players will get in. Profits will be made for a year or two and the share price of these trusts will rise and then the financial press will begin asking loaded questions such as: Isn't it time you got in on the hot new REIT market, or...Should you be buying REIT's? This is where tons of new investors pile in and the big boys exit, leaving the small investor once again to hold the bag. This could in fact be the beginning of a new bubble. http://reut.rs/HG3gsU

    Don't beat yourself up. This would have been hard to exit at the top price that day due to the fact that trading was halted, unless you already had sell order in that could have been matched up to the upside and short-lived buying spike. Even at that there is still no guarantee you could have exited at top dollar. It all depends on the order flow and where your order lined up. This makes for the case of setting up a trading rule for oneself that sets a profit target based on a set and reasonable percentage gain rather than attempting to call a top. Good luck going forward!

    Please re-read the last paragraph of my article....basically what happens in the market reaction of such stocks has more to do with the short term speculative behavior of "investors" or "speculators" and market psychology rather than the logical facts and fundamentals of the company, the drug, and its future market prospects. Had the drug been rejected, the stock would have most likely plunged in a matter of seconds back to the $5-7 range. The next move up will happen either when another analyst or two moves their target upwards, or when Affymax elaborates on its markeging timeline and sales projections.

    There is no flaw in the sentence. I wrote it. You didn't. You are completely missing the point.

    Most readers understood the ridiculous share price with a .99 tagged on the end was merely a cynical literary exaggeration mechanism used in this case to represent "bubble" and "stock market sales job"....nothing more....nothing less....sorry you missed that....perhaps you should read the entire article again.
