Thank you Mr. Woods, great article. Even though the focus of this piece is on the large pharmacy companies, I like that you included APHY. I feel that is a small company with lots of potential.
I actually wrote my own piece on APHY, which is posted on Market Playground. Would love it if you would take a read and give me your thoughts and comments.
Here it is:

Thank you for the coverage. For those interested in Assured Pharmacy (APHY), I would like to share a piece that I wrote on the company.
I think that APHY has the potential to become the next breakout stock--its speculative, but have a good feeling about it. It has advantages over the big guys.

I appreciate the feedback.
I feel that the joint venture with VZ will be a big part of the success of the company and it's long term growth and future. Unfortunately, that value is rather subjective and this was written from a fairly conservative point of view.
Enbrel and Celebrex have garnered quite a sales figure! As you state, the patent reissue for Celebrex will help with continued revenue. Thanks for your work.

Another great article, and you bring up good points. Thanks.

Kind of rotten to raise the price on an electronic simply based on immediate demand in my opinion. Then again, its also a good tactic to create added desirability and perceived exclusivity.

Very interesting, thank you. The idea is rather innovative: a laptop that converts into a tablet. However, as you mentioned, the batter life is poor when in tablet mode. That is unfortunate. I must say, it is my experience that Microsoft products usually leave you with something more to be desired...they disappoint, time and time again. This is evident when you see products from Apple. Time and time again, Windows-based phones have tried to compete with iPhones and always fail. Anyways, wouldn't be surprised if the tablet experience doesn't life up to an iPad.

That Amazon missed their mark by $1 billion is quite interesting, though makes sense. The customer base has grown resentful over having to pay sales tax, and has chosen to go somewhere else.
Interesting...

Interesting that Liberty Media (LMCAD) is now major stake holder in SIRI. Its been an uphill battle for Sirius I believe, as they have yet to make a penny profit.
Hello all, I just wanted to point out the latest news from NBS. Their subsidiary, PCT (Progenitor cell therapy) has entered into a manufacturing agreement with Adaptimmune:

I wanted the readers to be aware of the latest achievements and milestones by ONCS. I pulled this off the yahoo message boards.
Key milestones that OncoSec looks forward to accomplishing for 2013 include:
Present interim response data from OncoSec's Phase II melanoma trial along with long-term progression-free survival (PFS) data from its previous Phase I melanoma program
Present final data from OncoSec's Phase II melanoma trial and Merkel cell carcinoma trial
Conduct an end-of-Phase II meeting with the FDA for OncoSec's melanoma and Merkel cell carcinoma program
Present interim data from OncoSec's Phase II cutaneous T-cell lymphoma program
Plan to launch a pivotal Merkel cell carcinoma program
Plan to launch a Phase IIB metastatic melanoma program

OncoSec also reviewed the significant achievements of the company during the past year.
2012: Initiated Three Phase II trials with Patients Now Enrolling in Eight Centers of Excellence Across North America
2012: Presented Positive Interim Data
2012: Secured New Patents, Certification and In-licensing
Intel is quite amazing, in how they've taken over the CPU market. In the time it took me to read this, they've already created a faster chip.
I remember when NOKIA was the industry leader in mobile phones. Most advanced, slickest, smallest, fold-out keyboards, customizable ring tones...

Thank you for the article. Intel has been doing some great things and have really become market leaders.

It seems to be that the yellow chickens are more desirable as a commodity. I have heard enough horrors stories when it comes to KFC and the companiy's treatment of animals, forcing them to grow very fat, mutating them to have more limbs and meat, etc. Also, heard that they defeather them while still alive. In any case, 37,000 restaurants is quite a feat--and from a investment stand point, it seems like a good deal, YUM brands that is. However, I do not want to eat chicken which has ingested antidepressants.

2.5 ghz... but different types of LTE. Interesting. I find that all carriers have their areas of strengths and weaknesses.. specifically in regards to coverage. How many times have you been with a carrier in where do get poor cell phone reception in your OWN home? It is quite a frustrating thing. Anyhow, sure this is a nice move to strengthen Sprint.
Looking forward to a great 2013 and leaving all the 2012 nonsense behind. Now with the Fiscal Cliff averted, we can move on. Those making $400k or less have been spared from tax hikes.
I am not certain that having a choice between sizes on an iPhone is the answer. I suppose that seems like a nice option...to be able to choose as a customer--but there you would add a lot of manufacturing technicalities and costs. Besides, if you go any bigger (like the Samsung Galaxy 2 or whatever it is) then it will no longer fit in your pants pocket.
Who eats this stuff anyways? You ask me, I think most of these fast food establishments should be banned.
My understanding is that the iPhone 5 will be slightly longer and also thinner than the current version. Additionally, they have reworked the plug at the bottom. Curious what features the phone has, as I know the ios6 has many new ones. Thank you.

"Operating income declined by 52% year-over-year and $91M in restructuring expenses during the quarter added insult to injury."
Not sure the details of the restructuring, but one thing that Best Buy DOES need to restructure is the training or qualification (or lack thereof) of their in-store staff. They are unbelievably unknowledgeable and often unwilling to help.
I imagine an entity like Best Buy isn't easy to run- though it is a place one keeps coming back to because of the convenience-- and the fact that prices often make their electronics and goods a "best buy".
Thank you.

I am curious to hear more about the Verismo single serve. Is it like their instant VIA coffee? Also very exciting to hear that they've signed a contract for mobile phone payments with Square. They are truly bringing their business to the future! Very convenient and forward thinking. Now, if parking meters and garages would adopt the same technique...
Thank you.

To me, this seems like a "no-brainer" investment, though undoubtedly, the company (Advanced Medical Isotope corp) may face a rough road ahead for a bit. Nonetheless, a 200% increase in value in the past 3 months is something to note. In regards to the shortage of isotope supplies in the nation, and even the world, it seems logical to invest in a company-- no matter how small-- that is set up to start the manufacture of said isotopes. Mo-99 production and distribution to this country alone could yield absolutely staggering numbers as far as investment value goes. Thank you.

I saw this piece on CNN. Found it quite enlightening. I am glad they decided to cover the topic. Was really is-- dare I say it-- nothing short of a MIRACLE, is the fact that 2 patients have been cured (which is amazing). The 5 year survival mark for GBM is truly an accomplishment. Thank you.
