  • Small-cap biotechs scorched [View news story]
    Yep... discounts. The best buys IMO... NVAX, CYTR, and TNXP. Safest bets among this group... with very nice upside...heavy institutional and insider ownership on all 3.

  • Textura: A Late Christmas Gift [View article]
    SAC capital is taking new positions... very nice institutional ownership... Seems strange to me that if TXTR was such a fraud why is the smart money buying?

  • Why You Should Dump Whole Foods Market [View article]
    There is a cultural change happening with the way American's eat. It's not a fad.. it's a cultural change that is happening now. The mas produced / cheap food idea is dying with the baby boomers. Sure there will always be a high demand for cheap just because of economics...the middle class and up are changing the way they buy food and WF is placed perfectly to capitalize on this.

  • Why You Should Dump Whole Foods Market [View article]
    You are wrong on 2 very key points...

    #1 Whole foods is not over priced to their customers...sales and growth prove this. As for new customers.. they are making a clear effort to be more price competitive on MANY of their products...very price competitive in fact... I think the new Detroit store kinda spells out where WF is headed. WF is going after the upper middle class and health conscious consumer... they already own the wealthy consumer. There's a lot of people who want quality food and will pay for it....just look at where the growth in restaurant sales are.

    #2 They have a very aggressive plan to add more stores in North America...and that plan is in full swing and amping up. The potential for new stores is 10 fold....but I'll be happy with doubling in 10 years.

    The vast majority in the food industry use Whole Foods standards as to what is "natural" and what is not when it comes to food. Doesn't really matter what the FDA thinks ... or what you or anyone else calls Natural. More importantly the consumer has accepted WholeFoods standard and believes in the quality and healthiness of their foods. Sales and food trends support this. I'm in the business my self. Sure you'll have some extremist views one way or another but they really don't matter... it's profits that matter to the share holder...and the fact that WholeFoods has set the standard means big profits moving forward.. especially when you realize how much room they have to grow.

    This article shows a serious misunderstanding of Kroger, Safeway, and Whole Foods.

    McDonalds sells Cheesburgers..does that make them a competitor of Ruth Chris Steak house? If Taco Bell starts offering organic tacos does that mean Chipotle will suffer?

    WholeFoods is more then a grocery store... it's not just about Organic...in fact I'd say it's much less about organic then it is about clean stores, Natural foods, great service, and FAR superior quality. The best kroger store cannot compete with WholeFoods because WholeFoods is so different.

    This article also fails to recognize WF's aggressive plans for the future... The big box grocers can offer organic box food... it's not going to deter the WF shopper... BUT on the other hand if WF were to offer price competitive natural foods while doubling their store count over the next 10 years... it will be Kroger and Safeway that should be worried. The potential for growth is enormous... all their competitors can hope to do is keep what they have.

  • 5 Stocks Set To Outperform Into January Earnings [View article]
    I think the catalyst that will send Apple sky rocketing actually has nothing to do with Apple. When one of these companies( that have seen share prices sky rocketing with no fundamentals to justify it) comes crashing down...investors will come running to sound investments like Apple. When Amazon, Tesla, Twitter, etc come crashing down...that's when fundamentals will come back into play. When some of these bubbles burn investors and the market has a correction I see Apple taking off. Right now there are too many opportunities to make $ off stocks that are performing MUCH better then Apple. IMO it's the smart guys who are buying Apple now that will be laughing last.

    I'd also like to see a car dashboard device... that could be a new car option for every automotive company.

  • iTV Will Boost Apple [View article]
    I'd love an apple TV... I just don't see it happening this year or even next. It doesn't fit in with Apple's business model IMO...mainly on the profit end. Very low margins in TV's... I'm sure Apple could easily charge more ...but the technology is changing and it is saturated. You don't buy a Tv every 2-3 years like you see with phones. I think there is still room to expand on their current line. IMO Apple should make stereo docks for their phones and pads... every electronic store has an isle just for Apple docking devices for music. Why isn't apple taking those profits? They would easily dominate that market...especially if they produced a sound system 2nd to none. Bose is the current Apple of sound systems they could partner up or go head to head...either way Apple would dominate the market.

  • 4 Reasons Tonix Could Be A Multi-Bagger [View article]
    Hi Joe... What institutions are currently holding TNXP? I've been trying to find this information and I'm very surprised at the lack of big $ owning this stock. With such huge upside in an area of huge demand why wouldn't there be more funds and institutions buying? I currently own 880 shares and I am considering adding to this position but I'd like to find out why the lack of interest from the big guys? Especially considering the high caliber management... maybe I'm not reading the right info? thank you in advance.

  • Don't Buy Ariad Pharmaceuticals Shares At These Levels [View article]
    The problem here is the facts... This truly is one of the worst I've seen here. On Friday the FDA in a surprise move releases their drug with no restrictions other then a warning label. The stock was trading in the low 20's when they put it on hold. The price then dropped down below $4. It's now up to $7 after the surprise move by the FDA ....and a so called "fund guru" says you shouldn't buy? I don't know of a better buy on the market. Lets assume the low $20's was over inflated... even half that value presents a very nice investment.

  • Micron tumbles on report of new Hynix fab [View news story]
    Really good news for those looking to buy MU... I added to my holdings twice today and if it drops in the teens I'm selling other holdings to put into MU. This is a great opportunity. Same goes for Apple... I was really hoping it would drop more then it did.

  • Cyclacel Rising [View article]
    Well my mistake could have been worse. I have been reading up on Cycc for some time now and they were on my list of potential buys.... Cycc and Cytr symbols are so similar and I was distracted when I pulled the trigger. Luckily I didn't accidentally buy stock in an Iranian bikini company. Watch my mistake will end up being the best purchase I ever made.... Some of my least informed buys have been my best actually.

    I purchased GENT a few months ago on a single article and I just sold for a 180% gain. As soon as you start thinking you know something..that's when you get reminded you just aren't that special.
