  • A Review Of Amgen's AMG 334 [View article]
    A concern I have with AMGN is the oncoming biosimilar introductions into the market. How will this impact the future performance of AMGN share price? New products Phase 2 & 3 look promising. The company is undergoing major changes as product portfolio shifts.

  • Gilead Sciences: Finally Gaining Momentum [View article]
    GILD has gone up 8 days in a row. It sold off this am because of JNJ and ACHN. It then rallied back to a minor loss on the day. The candlestick is extremely bullish and I say with Bret Jensen confidence that GILD goes HIGHER!

  • Senator's HCV Rant Won't Slow Gilead [View article]
    You got progress this week. GILD shares increased in value every day this week. Next week it closes above $110 on the way to $120. I'll take a 20% return anytime you want to give it to me.

    And how about the VA scandal? Hospital Executives doctored their log books to collect large bonus's. The Secretary of Military Affairs was fired. Did that really fix the waste, fraud and abuse issues built into the VA System over decades? I hardly think so. Senator Sanders will look like the fool he is if he really gets into this discussion.

    Yes, the VA discounted price is 50K. It has been in place since the launch of Sovaldi in Dec 2013.

    And that will freeze the bioPharma breakthroughs dead in its tracks. Imagine if the government was in charge of R&D and commercialization? It can't even launch a website. For the love of God!

    It's even better for the VA - it only pays 50K. The cost of treating HCV has dropped from 200K to 50K. Cure rates have improved from 60% to 97-100%. Sen. Sanders is the village idiot. Hilary has some tough competition. LOL

    ESRX is too big. It is unmanageable.

    This was part of the deal Pharma struck with Obama to support the ACA. Live with it.

  • Express Scripts Calls Itself Out On Gilead, AbbVie Treatments [View article]
    Dana,

    This article completely misses the mark. 1) Gilead stock is not up 50%. It's been trading sideways for the last 9 months. The market has an inability to price and reward a "cure" vs chronic therapy. The price of treating HCV has dropped from $200K to $50K while cure rates have jumped from 60% to 97-100%. 2) Express made a deal with Abbvie for an inferior product. Gilead aggressively won every other bid with large Payers. 3) What happens to Express when PCSK-9 drugs get approved? Hope they don't make similar mistakes for their patients.

    Yes, and Germany actually has immigration laws that are enforced. Germany can actually manage their population. US Government continues to pay for votes. Not interested in economic management.

  • Here's Why Apple Is Weak Since Earnings [View article]
    Moxi,

    You are just flat out wrong. Apple customers have money. Android customers generally do not have money. If your goal is profits, what customer base would you want to to sell into? I'm so ready to cut the cord on Direct TV if it wasn't for "live" sports. If Apple offers a slim down version of Direct TV or Cable - I'm there. Enough said.

  • Apple: Here's Why The Stock Will Take Out $140 Before The End Of May [View article]
    Carl Ichan shared his theory of a short squeeze based on institutional fund managers under owning Apple and Apple's growing percentage of various index's/ETF's. A move toward 150 could trigger this to happen.

    Long Apple. This stock has been very, very good to me.

    Perhaps TC and the Apple Board is waiting for a new administration to make a tax deal? Obama and Reid will be out. Schumer and Clinton/Rep will make a deal.
