  • Orexigen Soars: Good News Is Heart Data, Bad News Is Data May Be Compromised [View article]
    DIg, why would they want to do that? Don't you know this is a free country and you can do whatever you want to your body. Interestingly enough once something happens to you, your tune changes fast. Hello medical technology. Forget organic vs conventional for a sec. Genetically modified food is not inherently bad. BUT, where was biotech's focal point? HMM, corn and soy where most of it goes to junk food and ethanol. Apparently biotech touts their gm to save the world population with ethanol and junk food..... Less than 20 percent of the US population receives the essential nutrients they are suppose to, which prevent cellular breakdown. No one cares unless you can make money off of it.

  • Update: Ditch Vringo On This Pop [View article]
    KP makes a good point. Whether someone takes internet keyboard warrior comments as full value or a grain of salt is the risk management decision of the viewer. He is the only one giving his entries. For how constructive and academic some of these comments are it seems to be for the sole purpose of stroking one's ego (keyboard warrior syndrome). Some here have been spouting the same nonsense for 3 years straight on VRNG's capitalization is just right around the corner and the stock just keeps going down.

    I don't comment much on VRNG but I laugh when I add my EXIGUOUS no substance comments, as they are as useful as the long winded rants on VRNG.

  • Seeking Alpha Expands Its Coverage To Mutual Funds [View article]
    Morningstar has all the MF tangible information you need. (dismiss the star ratings and look at the data) If you need SA opinions on MFs, Cefs, ETFs, ETNs, etc, I have a bridge to sell you.

  • An Objective, We Think, Up-To-Date Look At MannKind [View article]
    This will sound ignorant as I am not privy to hedgefund, market maker, etc, mentality. They have enough money as it is to diversify but is it possible these guys suppress stocks purposely as their is no tangible numbers yet to solidify the book value, therefore, they can use their current funds on current plays. My premise here is they play stocks with a 3 to 6 month time frame, as a minimum. MNKD should be hitting important numbers in about 6 months. Seems as if for GS, et al, this timing is just around their foreward looking potential.

    Yes, I know sounds ridiculous, but we all know how manipulated the market is. I remember playing LNG when it was 5 and the stock hit 8 and then some bogus claim that they defaulted sent it back to 4, several months later the stock got export approval and hit 12.

    Hypothetically, if ZTE and VRNG settled for 50 m, I'm sure the stock would go down too.

  • Ensco plunges 8% following surprise dividend cut [View news story]
    Who didn't see this coming? My knowledge on the sector is pretty superficial. I have been researching the energy sector to gain further knowledge on great undervalued energy plays. We are just starting to see energy companies adjust to the current environment, I'm surprised to see so many buying into companies already with the set it and forget it mentality. I welcome any suggestions to aid in my knowledge of the energy sector.

  • Sunshine Heart up premarket on prospects of shorter study of heart assist device [View news story]
    SSH is a low floater, wound tight and this is understandable why it faded. Shorts are still in control but the risk has been added against them. I expect the shorts will slowly get rid of their positions over the next 3 months. The weekly chart looks very good.

  • No MannKind Buyout Until Afrezza Is Profitable [View article]
    I only bought an initial position because MNKD is not diversified by relying solely on Afrezza and their dispenser they are touting. I'm not concerned about a buyout whatsoever. I am more concerned about exiguous sales since they only have one and half bullets to fire. (the half being technosphere) I just want to see Afrezza sales snowball, let the profits pile up overtime and watch the stock price appreciate.

    (i hope Rick Berger is reading this!)

    The title says it all. Thanks for steering me clear, I was expecting them to be bought out just before bankruptcy.

  • Remembering Rockefeller's Promise - A New World Order Where International Bankers And Intellectual Elites Rule [View article]
    James, what is worse is people like you dignifying it in the first place. Go back to your Atlas Shrugged scientist mentality where rational thought has gone out the window and only Federal Reserve number crunching is all that matters to you. See what I did there, I dignified your own drivel.

  • Remembering Rockefeller's Promise - A New World Order Where International Bankers And Intellectual Elites Rule [View article]
    This stuff was being pushed in the 60s and the 70s. People say we shouldn't be part of the UN, the UN was created IN the US! Obama, several months ago, talked about investing 30 billion into Africa. Its just the corporate fascist grab to profit off of all the global resources. The elite say, you can have your sovereignty, we'll take the trade agreements like the TPP. I think in the future having stock and voting on the board members will be more significant than the futile ways of using democracy to vote for a president. Expect volatility on the way in the new world economy. The individual is what is finished.

  • U.S. Deflation Update [View article]
    capitalism? capitalism works better on free markets. Nothing wrong with SOME liquidity, but this is out of hand. There is a cycle to everything, there is nothing wrong with temporary deflation.

  • Which Car Industry Stock Should You Own? [View article]
    Can't go wrong with Hyundai. Plus having KIA as a subsidiary. Hyundai and KIA are where Toyota and Honda were 20 years ago. But with all these pumped up loans most car manufacturers will benefit... at least for now. Too bad Subaru is private.

    Seriously though, what happened to Marpha. One of the two most intuitive/objective people I have ever seen in financial social media. It's like he/she died early like Kurt Cobain and became legend.
