    I agree with Doyle3000. A simple google search would have told you that this is the first time two federal agencies (CMS & FDA) have reviewed an application simultaneously. CMS (a/k/a Medicare/Medicaid) will most likely issue a memo of coverage in the October/November timeframe after a 30-day period of public comments which started about mid-August. This means that instead of the current $599 price tag, the cost of this screening will be negotiated down and, more importantly, be covered by Medicare.

  • Rats fed with Monsanto's (MON +1.7%) GM corn in a French  study, or exposed to its Roundup weedkiller, suffered mammary tumors, and severe liver and kidney damage.

However, the lead researcher has a record as a critic of the GM industry, so other experts may be wary of drawing quick conclusions. [View news story]

    I also own NLY and AGNC and enjoy the high dividend. Lately, however, there's been quite a lot of volatility, like today. In your opinion, is this just "normal" variation or is something ominous lurking under the surface? Great article, by the way-
