It is very hard or impossible to time the broad market consistently — there are no famous investors that got rich by consistently knowing what the broad market would do next. This only makes sense, as there are just too many variables in the broad market. But there are many famous investors who... More

    That's a hilarious headline, thank you!

    (hold for laughter and applause)

    Click the "sing with me" link at the bottom before you read this. Is it playing? OK:

    I got a question about JNJ's type 2 diabetes drug Invokana being approved yesterday. 3 things:

    1) Afrezza works by mimicking a healthy human pancreas, carrying glucose into the cells to be used for energy.

    Invokana works by excreting more sugar in the urine (sweet pee, apple of my eye!). This is obviously not optimal, and should be most useful for patients with advanced diabetes - whereas Afrezza is in trials for early-stage on through advanced diabetes.

    2) The drug is not a mealtime therapy and is not a competitor to Afrezza.

    3) The approval is auspicious for Afrezza's approval.

    Sing with me!

    Don't know when and I don't know why
    You're the only reason I keep on coming home

    Sweet pea
    What's all this about
    Don't get your way all you do is fuss and pout
    You're the only reason I keep on coming home

    I'm like the rock of Gibralter
    I always seem to falter

    And the words just get in the way
    Oh I know I'm gonna crumble
    I'm trying to stay humble
    But I never think before I say

    Sweet pea
    Keeper of my soul
    I know sometimes I'm out of control
    You're the only reason I keep on coming
    You're the only reason I keep on coming yeah
    You're the only reason I keep on coming home

    Disclosure: I am long MNKD.

    Awesome joe,


    I posted a rough version remix of Outkast's sorry miss Jackson for VRNG longs titled....


    Sorry judge Jackson, VRNG is for real
    Never meant to make the shorts cry
    After mr softie rumor of a buy


    Sorry judge Jackson..........and so on


    I reworked it after putting my rough out there.


    You have to keep your creative juices flowing. Working on pulling out some other bullish info on mnkd......I have seen a lot of little articles out there.


    Timing is everything!


    And I found this news to be bullish as well.


    Long MNKD and VRNG (since I mentioned it above)


    Working on a few ideas and think I might even publish them.


    Thanks again joe "sweet pea" springer

    Author’s reply » Also just for the record I briefly had my disclosure as long MNKD and JNJ and the "about stocks" as just MNKD. I fixed it, I am not long JNJ this post is not just about MNKD. If this ruined your life and caused you to renounce your faith and go on a killing spree I TOTALLY understand.
