    My little theory, Mark.

    Institutions who took it on the chin with their energy positions this year, are taking or matching profits from the biotech sector...for tax reasons.

    Perhaps my final humor installment of 2014.

    You're not alone, WT. Biopharma across the board is getting clobbered today. The "Gilead Effect" seems to be forcing a lot of end of the year profit taking.

    Pretty bad flu season developing. Today, Kentucky has declared visitation restrictions to the state's hospitals.

    -- The restrictions at UKHealthCare include: No visitors under the age of 12; no visitors with flu-like symptoms; two visitors in a patient's room at one time; masks or other protective clothing may be required during visits.

    My family celebrated Christmas yesterday here in my home. It was wonderful. Lots of presents and great food as usual, but to me, the best part was all the festive shared laughter.

    For reasons of health care and taxes, a sad and complicated story with lots of twists and turns, my nephew and his fiancé got hitched by a Justice of the Peace this past Tuesday. He proposed to her last month in Yosemite Park, exactly where my old man proposed to my mother.

    What's it like to be married? I asked my nephew. Nothing's different, he replied. They have been dating for 8 years.

    Happy Holidays to all!

    OR: I think it's the flight to the dollar and foreign investment into the US market is a driving force and the main reason why I think the S&P will be 10 to 15% higher come this time next year.

    Bought for my nephew a T-shirt that says this:

    If You Don't Like Bacon You're WRONG!

    OyGee: Great call on Gilead you made a few months ago!

    I'll add deplorable and pathetic.

    Yes. But unfortunately today my gamer account was dealing with some kind of intermittent failure, and I couldn't access my account until around 1:30 today.

    I was floored when I went into my account this morning and it said I had no holdings! I called Trade King, and after about 20 minutes of listening to 80s tunes, a rep came on. He apologized and then offered to make a trade or trades for free. But I declined because if the market reversed, then I might have not been able to bail on the trades.

    I'm long PAY in the brokerage account. Also looking at FireEye (FEFE) as another cyber security play.

    Bought PAY as a "grab-your-noser" earlier today at $36.09 and it closed at $37.42.

    Thanks, WT.

    I could be wrong, but I believe oil is merely going through a dead cat bounce. We'll know more by the end of this week, I expect.

    I've been looking at preferreds and bonds for the energy sector. The preferreds for many MLPs have taken a beating, too, and many are yielding north of 11 or 12 percent. Bonds are under par. A Vanguard bond that closes out in 2020 is tempting, but its liquidity is low.

    Here's an interesting chart of 30 minute trades of light crude futures out to the end of 2017. If the futures contracts are a barometer, it looks like light crude will stay below $70 for the next 24 months.

    Mr I: And getting back the IP rights is vital before any sale could occur.

    Kind of funny, Mercy, as I wrote above I had never heard of CUBA before, but right after I read about your fantastic scalp, for the first time ever I saw CUBA trundle across the CNBC steamer ticker.
