  • Updating My Price Target On Gilead Sciences For 2016  [View article]
    If the U.S tries to control drug pricing which it will do, U.S. pharmaceutical firms will move overseas and do inversions to save on taxes. And all the crooked Senators and Congressman will look the other way

  • Does Starbucks Have More Room To Fall?  [View article]
    Going to Starbucks is very much influenced by how much money you feel you have as extra income. Ok. the first cup of plain coffee is not a luxury ; but buying the extras plus the other drinks are. If the economy suffers and people experience loss of jobs, Starbucks will suffer. I look for a drop to $45 dollars a share. Buying opportunity maybe. Now I would not touch it, at this price.

  • Updating My Price Target On Gilead Sciences For 2016  [View article]
    THERE ARE MANY PHARMACEUTICAL COMPANIES THAT MAKE LOTS OF MONEY. AT THE SAME TIME THE GOVERNMENT IS RACKING UP TREMENDOUS DEBT BECAUSE PEOPLE ARE OUT OF WORK AND THEY ARE UNABLE TO TAKE CARE OF THEIR FAMILIES. THE EQUILBRIUM OF THIS ECONOMY HAS NO OTHER STRUCTURE THAT COULD LOWER THE DEBT. SO ALL PHARMACEUTICAL COSTS WILL BE PAID BY THE GOVERNMENT AND THEY WILL WANT A GOOD DEAL. THEY WILL PROBABLY NEGOTIATE LOWER PRICES WITH THESE PHARMACEUTICAL COMPANIES; WHICH WILL MEAN LOWER PRICES; SO I THINK LOTS OF PHARMACEUTICAL COMPANIES WILL BE EVALUATED DIFFERENTLY AS FAR AS P/E. THE PHARMACEUTICAL STOCKS APPEAR MANIPULATED TOO AND THE HEDGE FUNDS AND BROKERAGE FIRMS MANIPULATE THE PRICES. SO YEAH, GILEAD IS DOING WELL, BUT WHAT HAPPENS IF PROFIT MARGINS DROP. THE GOVERNMENT WILL BE FORCED TO INTERVENE ON PRICING. ELI LILLY , MERCK, CELGENE, AMGEN ALL HAVE GOOD PROSPECTS WITH NEW PRODUCTS; BUT THE PROFIT MARGINS ARE THE QUESTION.

  • Whiting Petroleum - Sell After First Stage Of Oil Price Rally To $50/Barrel  [View article]
    My intuition is that Whiting Petroleum's properties might be a compelling acquisition for a large international oil company like Chevron or Exxon.

    You know that is really true, the U.S. government may make controls on pharmaceutical prices; with biotech companies; that would be bad news. Never know.

  • Be Your Own Barista, Serve Yourself Starbucks' 10% Yield  [View article]
    Starbucks is overpriced. Now neighborhood supermarkets give you a decent cup of coffee for 1/2 the price. Taste is fine. Also Starbucks raised its price for coffee. If economy tanks; some people might be taking tea bags and single coffee serves to work and be making less visits to Starbucks. My take is Starbucks might have a rough sleigh ride for next 6 months. Buy this stock but for less probably $48-50 dollar range. U.S. economy does not look good.

  • Novo Nordisk: This Winner Has Risks, Be Aware  [View article]
    Well written. European pharmaceutical firms all left Eli Lilly at the starting line with new effective insulin injectable therapies. Novo -Nordisk and Novartis do very well. But I guess you have to wait for a stampede of selling to buy these stocks at a good price.

  • Biotechs getting slammed; IBB down XBI down 5%  [View news story]
    Biotech stocks are acting strange lately. Celgene in particular. It appears people are getting out of it, but at the same time big investment funds telling about the glorious prospects. Something is going on and more is to come. Some of the pharmaceutical giants have acted strange as of late. Bristol-Myers, Merck, Lilly and Johnson and Johnson. Is a great market collapse in the offing.?

  • Morgan Stanley warns of 50% downside in E&P stocks; downgrades MRO, ECA, CNQ, WLL  [View news story]
    It looks like a lot of oil companies will file for bankruptcy. Morgan Stanley is big enough to make people sell stock; so it might cause the price to drop where they predict it will be. Could I be wrong? What will happen to Phillips Conoco, Chevron or Exxon?

  • Coca-Cola Has A Potential Political Headwind On The Horizon  [View article]
    Coca Cola is a known cause of obesity and diabetes in America. Numerous large corporate food companies in America have been loading up Americans with sugars and high carbohydrate foods for 100 years. But Coke was great in glamorizing the act of drinking "Coke".

  • Does Walgreens' Acquisition Of Rite Aid Justify The Stock Price?  [View article]
    The FTC could stop the acquisition of Rite-Aid by Walgreens. I feel if they let it go through. Walgreens -Boots might do an inversion again and they will pay less tax.
    A horror story scenario; but I am sure Walgreen's is protected. What if some of Board of Directors of Rite-Aid get onto to the board of Walgreens.

  • Akorn: Stock To Own With An Activist Invovled  [View article]
    The beauty of Akorn Pharmaceutical's is really all in its Hi-Tech acquisition. Hi-Tech makes liquids and creams and price hikes in this area of generics have been occurring over the last 3-4 years making these firms attractive investments. It would be better if they had a foreign address in Ireland. I would buy Akorn and keep it long term.

  • Keurig Green Mountain: So Now What?  [View article]
    Very strange on November 18, I put in an order to buy the stock but the market had just closed and after hours the stock spiked like $6-7 dollars on high volume. Maybe someone wants to buy this company, acquisitions by Coke or a multi national are possible. Anyone think it is possible. Who would fit with this company in its fold?
