    This news just broke on Seekingalpha a little over an hour ago, it gives my last post much credence. Does it not?

  • Horizon Pharma: Analyst Says 60% Upside. I Concur [View article]
    I've held shares of DEPO for some time now and if their current quarter turns out as good as I think it will, DEPO will show just how under valued it really is by HZNP. As for HZNP's growth? It appears to me the only thing they have to pay for acquisitions is shares of their company. DEPO and HZNP were both bidding for the rights of the drug Nucynta and DEPO was the successful bidder at 1.5 billion bucks. I really don't believe Horizon had the cash or the credit worthiness to compete unless of course they could pay for the drug with shares of stock. I'm sure no accountant but after looking at Horizons financials I'm not impressed at all. Long DEPO no interest in HZNP.

  • Horizon: Thoughts On The Offer To Acquire Depomed [View article]
    If there is no buy out of DEPO (and I hope there isn't) and DEPO does well with Nucynta and it's other drug sales continue to grow it should be a $45 a share company all on it's own. It's pretty obvious they do not want to be purchased at this time for the simple reason, management knows the company will be worth a whole lot more one year from now. Just my humble opinion,

  • The rise of GMO corn has cost grain companies $427M, report says [View news story]
    It isn't just China dammit, GMO grains are being rejected by more countries than just China. And we keep growing the damned stuff, eating it and feeding it to our live stock and our kids. And I agree with RAP77 on the Autism and Cancer possibilities. . Now, If you read the article on the link be sure to scroll clear to the bottom and read some of the comments.

    I'm not a farmer but I've lived in a rural area for thirty-eight years. Twenty years ago I could quail hunt on my property and have a limit of birds in a matter of a couple of hours. Today there are no quail to be found within 200 miles of my land and I know without a doubt it's due to the crap farmers use to keep weeds and insects out of and off of their crops.

  • All eyes on Amazon Prime [View news story]
    I signed up for AP last year just before Thanksgiving and I may have saved twenty bucks in shipping costs with orders I placed through but the movie selection lacks a lot and the format used in streaming is way behind that of Netflix so I know without a doubt that I will dump AP if the price goes up at all. There's no way in hell it's worth $119 bucks a year.

  • Amazon Blazes On, Despite Union Efforts [View article]
    Yeah we should set the wage at less than 5 bucks and hour so mega businesses could grow share holder value and the top 1% could buy even bigger toys. Mega businesses could set up soup lines outside the factory walls so the workers and their families could eat maybe twice a day as a family unit, the workers could then return to the factory floor while their families go back to the cardboard villa's under the bridges.

  • Fonar: Time To Depart From This Superstar Performer [View article]
    So instead of quietly taking your 500% gain and looking for a better place to put that gain, you want to tell us it's time to take our money and run. George, if I've learned one thing on SA it's that the authors who post article are always playing an angle long or short. I agree with pawneeAl, at this point you plan on making money as it goes down and if this article helps, so much the better for you.

  • Reassessing Amazon Prime's Strength [View article]
    I signed up for Prime just before Christmas for the 2 day shipping. I didn't even think about the streaming video that came with it. I subscribe to Netflix (both dvd and streaming) and the family really likes it. This week I remembered the streaming video part of Prime so I tuned in and I've been watching season 4 of Justified and I have to say that Amazon is waaaaayyyyy behind the curve on their streaming setup, it's not nearly as good as Netflix so for my movies and tv shows I'll stick with Netflix 95% of the time.

    This board has suddenly caught fire with some great responses. I thank you all for your contributions. Let's hope ONCY and any other bio-tech out there that is working to find cures for cancer are successful.

  • Oncolytics Biotech, Inc.: An Intro To These Next Few Crucial Weeks [View article]
    Ms Gilson, this is a well written article. I spent good bit of time over the weekend reading up on Oncolytics Biotech, Inc. ( as well as other oncolytic virotherapy companies so I was able to keep up with a much of what you are talking about. One thing you didn't mention is the fact that there are only about a dozen companies Internationally (at the present time) involved in trials using viruses as vehicles to deliver medications in different types of cancer. Amgen paid a billion dollars for one of them, privately held Biovex. Here's a link
    ( that talks about who the present leaders in the field are and there's a table showing the commercial value and deal values of the most active of these companies. It appears that Oncolytics Biotech comes in at #2 behind Amgen with a market cap of $450 million and I don't think that number takes into account the potential value of the hundreds of patents they hold.

    To all readers, if you have some time, take a look at this science, it is fascinating to read and the strides that are being made are nothing short of remarkable. Who knows? One of these companies just may be on track to really slow and possibly find a cure for many types of cancer. We can only pray they do.

  • Pumping Wheat On Weather Makes Little Sense [View article]
    Are you sure about the 50% number on corn harvest????? I just drove from eastern Illinois across the middle of Missouri and on across Kansas and all I saw was field after field of standing, withering corn. I've heard and read that corn that wasn't making a corn crop was being cut for cow feed as ensilage.

  • Agriculture Shares Move Higher Despite Market Sell-Off [View article]
    I live in rural NW MO, I'm not a grain producer but I do pay attention to the crops as I drive down the road and it's obvious that the corn and beans are suffering from the lack of rain and heat here. Corn is already tasseling and the stalks look pretty short, beans are way behind in growth, when normally they would be knee high or more by now. We can only hope for rain in our area but I don't think it's going to happen in time to help the crops here. Temperatures here are forecast to be over 100 degrees for the next several days.

  • Beware: Highly Promoted Galena Biopharma Keeps Moving Higher [View article]
    Folks, the author of this article says he has no positions in GALE nor does he plan on establishing any within the next 72 hours. I believe he is telling the truth. However I also believe he just may have advised his clients to short GALE and then he writes his damning article filled with falsehoods and it worked, his clients made a butt load of money and of course he was paid handsomely for his anylitical skills. If you read Mr. Morhamus's profile you will find the following:

    "My firm provides investment products and solutions for institutions and individual investors. I take particular attention to small and mid-cap companies in emerging markets. I like to research and trade good ideas; both long and short; with other experienced traders."

    Description: Independent / boutique research firm analyst. Trading frequency: Weekly
    Interests: Options, Tech stocks

    This guy doesn't have to own an equity to make money on it he just hypes or trashes an equity to cash in.

    Just my humble opinion

  • Galena Biopharma Preparing For A 3-Day Rally? [View article]
    Now, I doubt Brian's writing two articles in one day could cause any equity to trade twenty-three million shares in one day, as GALE did today so it never even entered my mind that he was pumping this equity. It's pretty obvious day traders are responsible for the bulk of this volume but I also believe it's experiencing some institutional buying as well.
    I stumbled across GALE four days ago using Vector Vest and after searching and reading everything I could find about the security and noticing the huge volume associated with it's rise I decided this just could be a good long term investment so I purchased a few shares two days ago. I only wish I could have found it back in December when it hit it's low of thirty-six cents.
    The prospect of GALE's "Neuvax" drug making the grade and hitting the market in a few years look promising. And if that does happen you can expect this equity to sky rocket or Galena Biopharma, Inc (GALE) could be purchased by one of the big fish like Roche. Here's a link to another article I found today, read and enjoy.
