  • The Day I Sold Everything [View article]
    Unless you have a systematic plan to time the market, a plan that has not changed for years, I believe that you have succumbed to the perils of behavioral finance. This is precisely the reason that people don't make as much as the funds in which they invest. They are simply ill-equipped to make investment decisions without factoring in their emotions. You feel the market is too high. Have you been using your indicators for the past 10 years, live or simulated? mts's comment, "I have "sold out" and "hedged" each once. Both times I've regretted it. To each his own," is instructive. If the "professionals" can't consistently and accurately predict the market, what makes you think that you can. How will you feel if we gain another 10 - 15% before end of year. Not saying we will but active investors, without a stable system, invariably lose out over time. Be very careful, adhere to a system, or turn your account over to a professional who will not be swayed by a gut feeling...

    Just more pro-management, anti-shareholder activity, that's all.

  • Is NanoString The Next Illumina In Cancer Diagnostics? [View article]
    The science here is certainly interesting but I didn't once see the word patent in your article. Is there a patented technology here? What are the barriers to entry for a large competitor to enter the market should it prove quite profitable? These are key questions that seem to go unasked and unanswered in your article.

    John, can you comment on the amended S-3 put out on the 10th for the resale of 8.1 million shares of stock issuable on conversion of preferred, exercise of warrants and previously issued stock? No proceeds to the company, all to selling shareholders. Increases the float pretty significantly. Not what I would want to see in a company trying to turn itself around...

    You mention that the transition started in 2009. I, for one, do not have patience with the same management team five years later and no tangible results. I think there are far better stories,and far better run companies if you are looking for value stories.

    Can you please tell me how you can reconcile the level of SG&A with revenues? They are simply not sustainable under any scenario other than continued raises.

    Why, because it didn't support his thesis of course.

    I am cheering for NWBO to be successful if only to see what kind of reaction that prompts from AF. My bet is that he will simply ignore any substantially positive developments and move on to another target. A journalist with integrity would come out and admit that they were wrong. Of course the jury is still out on NWBO but it will be very interesting to watch this play out. Does anyone know of a company that AF hit and subsequently went on to approval? What happened there. I would have a great deal more respect for AF if he actually admitted mistakes...

    I would love to hear your response to the fact that Dr. Buzdar has released results at a similar stage in trials. This is the very thing for which he criticizes NWBO. I take no position on the the efficacy of the drug, just the credibility of one of its critics. Any factual thoughts on this?

    What do you say about NWBO now? Quite interesting that they obtained a compassionate use approval in Germany...

  • JGWPT: Dominant Franchise In A Lucrative Niche Has 75% Upside [View article]
    The CFPB can quickly ruin very good companies. That's what a federal entity with no congressional oversight can do. I would stay away from any company that is being investigated by the CFPB as there are no limits to its power. It can levy fines and fees with absolute discretion.
