  • Corning's Results Suggest No Sapphire iPhone - This Year [View article]
    Sales of Gorilla Glass, a damage-resistant cover glass for smartphones and tablets, were less than anticipated, due to lower retail demand for smartphones and high-end tablets, and lower-than-expected sales for planned new models.

    If someone had stumbled upon a piece of this glass a year ago its origin would have been identified as alien.

    It was either smart manipulation or very stupid analysis.

  • Novavax: A Unique Opportunity [View article]
    There are many components of this market: Pedeatrics; Pregnant women; Eldery; and Immune compromised. I am assuming that the number was a combination of each of these segments. I went back to find the source of this number and have been unable to. I will endeavor to cite a reference for all future market projections. If someone encounters an updated projection for RSV, please post it here for all of us. I will continue to review my references to see where that number emanated from.

  • Equity Research Analysts Covering Apple Hit The Bulls-Eye! [View article]
    A clever individual who is desperate to get the share price down for whatever reason. If you just think about the products, (software and hardware) that are already confirmed, ignoring for the moment all of those rumored to be in the pipeline, there is not a single other opportunity that has more potential for long term huge profits that I am aware of. I firmly believe that the shares were split here to avoid the $1,000 psychological ceiling. I also believe that they will be splitting these shares for the exact same reason within the next 36 months. I have my money in a bank, the bank of Apple ;√)

  • In Case Of MERS Emergency - Break Glass, Buy Novavax [View article]
    Given the CEO's often repeated statement to investors, analysis and basically anyone else who would listen, that they had funding well into 2016, if they don't make a compelling case for this latest round the legal sharks will start churning the water for class action clients - if they haven't all ready.

    I am expecting some major news along the lines of a new partnership or merger.

    The CEO has stated specifically and often that they had funding going into 2016. Somewhere in the neighborhood of 130 million. There must be a reason for this new round that is not on anyone's radar. Watch for news and don't sell your shares.

    A re-evaluation of the data indicates that MERS is more deadly than first indicated:

    Death rate now put at 41% with a new count of infections is 688. MERS appears to peak each April and this seasonality should provide the time for scientists and companies like NVAX to produce effective vaccines.

    They have no human clinical research with their Synthetically Constructed Viruses "SynCon®." That puts them two to four years behind Novavax. As noted by the last line of the article linked above:"While the preliminary research has been very promising, it still has to be proved to be safe and effective in humans. That could take years."

    Not trying to mitigate the human suffering when infected with Chikungunya virus, but the deaths associated with it are insignificant (0.3 pre 1000)(almost never fatal unless there are co-morbidities) when compared to MERS which is 29% of all individuals infected or 29 deaths per 100 infections.

    "Despite being considered as a non-fatal disease, deaths have been partly attributed to the virus. During the 2005-2006 outbreak in La Réunion the overall mortality rate associated with chikungunya virus infection was 0.3/1,000 persons and mortality rate increased markedly with age."

    I wrote "A Checklist for Safe Investing in Chinese Stocks"
    I have come to an expensive conclusion: there is no such thing.

    I have been scammed over and over again by Chinese investments. For whatever the reasons, there seem to be very little ethics in business reporting where Chinese Stocks are concerned. I am so thoroughly distrustful at this point that even my investment in Yahoo to capture some of the Alibaba IPO profits has me concerned.
