  • Does Someone Have Bad News About Amarin? [View article]
    When Bart Chilton and his crew along with the SEC return to work after their paid furlough, I want them to start an investigation on this GS inspired bear raid. I will be very happy to hear the clink of handcuffs to these manipulators.

  • Why Zohydro May Or May Not Be Approved [View article]
    I repeat. If Zohydro is rejected, simply sell the formulation to a buyer outside the US. Indian generic, Russian pharma (mafia), Latin American pharma (cartel) and either take a lump sum or take a royalty. Stock price should jump on news of the sale.

    I believe in the long term future of Delcath and its product. Like you, I am sometimes puzzled by its short term actions. If FDA acted in June instead of September, Delcath could probably avoid any dilutive share offering. I still don't understand the reasoning behind this delay. I do understand the recent cost cutting efforts. Leaving NYC is a great move. Let's hope revenues in Europe can cover expenses until FDA gets around to its September approval.

  • The USPS decides not to end Saturday mail delivery this summer because the federal agency says language in the current budget plan passed by Congress won't allow the measure. For now, the losses will continue to bleed. [View news story]
    Outraged. What would USPS bring if were sold in its entirety. Real estate alone is worth billions. To quote Jim Cramer ...sell sell sell.

    At some point, the continuous release of positive news has got to raise this stock's price significantly. Prescriptions seem to be on a nice upward track. NCE? Soon? Anchor? Soon. Everything points to a huge run-up but you'd never know it by the share price. Shorts still control this stock. I hope Joe Z has a short-killer strategy that he will unleash. I really do want to hear the shorts scream.

  • Wind And Solar Share Fatal Flaws: Politics And Variability Of Output [View article]
    I wish to amend my experiment. Add Quebec to VT and SF. Shut off all fossil fuels and lets see if it can be done. PQ can add lots of wood and hydro to the mix. Of course, I don't know how they expect to mine copper for the electric transmission grid and transport it without nasty, awful drilled and refined petroleum. But lets see it happen anyway. Please start today.

  • Wind And Solar Share Fatal Flaws: Politics And Variability Of Output [View article]
    I suggest we take a state like Vermont or a city like San Francisco and do the experiment.
    Wind and solar everything and shut off the fossil fuels. Let's see what happens.
    It won't happen but it should. It would make them put up or shut up. And for those who say we subsidize oil and gas. Let's stop it all. Stop all subsidies and tax breaks.
    And as to war, there was no oil in Vietnam nor Korea nor Germany nor Japan. I'd be with Ron Paul, let them fight it out amongst themselves and we can develop our own fossil fuels.

  • Why Zohydro May Or May Not Be Approved [View article]
    I have just 5000 shares of ZGNX so l won't live or die with disapproval. I will live or die with this ludicrous nanny state government and its alleged "war" on drugs. Zohydro is needed for many worldwide who suffer chronic pain and this relief will be stopped because we have too many pillheads and too many MD pushers. If Zohydro is rejected by the FDA, Zogenix should sell the formula to an Indian generics house for royalties or cash and be done with the whole process.
    And please spare me the sob stories of addiction. If addiction were the real issue then we would stop opioids entirely. And then we could deal with alcohol and nicotine and spray paint.
    I have an idea for the nanny staters. Let's make Zohydro available only through government controlled and staffed pharmacies. They'd love that. A new bureaucracy and the end of another free market business.

  • Valero (VLO -6%) says proposed new rules aimed at reducing sulfur content in gasoline would cost it hundreds of millions of dollars in equipment construction and upgrades alone. In addition to spending $300M-$400M initially to implement the rule, VLO also predicts operating costs would rise by an undetermined amount every year due to the rules proposed Friday by the EPA. (earlier[View news story]
    You just don't get it do you progressives? No one wants to go back to the dirty air and water of the 60s. We won. Go fight your wars in China and India where filthy air is travelling around the world causing more pollution in the US than they might eliminate with onerous and doubtful sulphur regulations. Go fight deforestation in Africa and Latin America. Not needed here. And yes, I was an environmentalist in the 60s.

    Has it ever occured to the progressives that they should progress out of the 60s? We fought that war against filth in the 60s and 70s and we won. Our air is cleaner, our waters are cleaner and our environment is markedly cleaner. Instead of declaring victory, the progressive who cannot progress are fighting expensive fights against the laws of diminishing returns. Turn your efforts to China and India. You will find filthy air, burning rivers and polluted grounds. Go there and fight and drop an expensive, unnecessary campaign against sulphur which will not improve much of anything.

  • Chesapeake Granite Wash Trust Is A Strong Buy, Part I [View article]
    Thank you for this enlightened article. My CHKR and PER were tanked by the previous SA bear piece. I too looked back at the PV and like you, I looked to the future. Even if treated as an annuity which will end at zero, CHKR pays me much more than the face value of my purchase last year. I'm quite happy with the fabulous return and like you I look forward to collecting said returns until 2031 or beyond. I do hope your enlightened piece will result in us gaining back some of the "lost" value of the past few days.

  • Business and union leaders have reached an agreement on pay levels for a guest worker program for low-skilled temporary jobs, thereby clearing the way for a bipartisan group of senators to introduce legislation that would allow 11M illegal immigrants to eventually gain citizenship. "This issue has always been the deal breaker on immigration reform, but not this time," said Senator Charles Schumer. [View news story]
    And right they are to insist upon a secure border prior to any deal. For those of us old enough to remember, this is the third time we will do illegal amnesty and each time it was promised that the border would be secured. It never was and the seeds of a subsequent amnesty was sowed. We need permanent incarceration for violent criminals whose home countries will not accept repatriation. We need forced repatriation perhaps even throwing them over the wall at their embassy. We need to end the Caribbean heart surgery scam where patients go to NY, Boston, or Miami and immediately have chest pains. Surgery and rest care paid for by the taxpayers. We need to make identity theft a very serious crime with very serious jail time. We need to end the ACLU supported legal hassle to deportation and we need to remove all jailed illegals to their home country ASAP. If they don't want them, then throw them over the wall at any convenient embassy. We have been fooled before but not this time. Stand your ground House and make them do it right this time.

  • In the two decades through December, the average return of all investors in U.S. stock mutual funds was an annualized 4.25% vs 8.2% for the S&P 500. That translates into a difference of $25,467 for an investment of $10,000. "The dismal truth is that over the long run, the average person is a woeful investor," writes the NYT's Jeff Sommer. [View news story]
    Why blame individual investors? Aren't mutual funds supposed to be professionally managed? Blame the managers.

  • Delcath Systems: Bullish On Melblez FDA Panel Vote And Subsequent Approval [View article]
    Very good and studious overview of Delcath and the FDA. Europe may be more important to Delcath than is the FDA. Delcath is approved in many European countries for treatment of a broad spectrum of liver cancers and insurance rates are being established. Real life outcomes can be studied in Europe. Europe is not Zimbabwe or Russia where bureaucrats can be bought with the proper amount of money stuffed into the proper pocket. I suggest that real life outcomes in Europe will propel quickened approvals in the US. Imagine you or a family member diagnosed with liver cancer who is subjected to horrible chemo (I have seen the results first hand) while you and they know of a treatment with real positive outcomes in Europe. Your clamor would be heard in the halls of DC. Again, I am an investor in Delcath and a family member of a recent liver cancer victim. If she were still alive, I'd have her in Germany for treatment today.
