  • ViroPharma (VPHM +3.4%) trades higher after releasing its 2013 outlook this morning. The company says it expects net product sales to be between $450M to $475M. Analysts are looking for around $467M. The numbers are encouraging, because Cinryze has become key to the drug developer's future as the it's former blockbuster antibiotic Vancocin is expected to see sales hurt by the potential entry of generic rivals going forward. [View news story]
    The management here has played their drug development well. They have gone from a "one-trick pony" to a firm that brings additional income sources to market in thime to more than offset the effects of generic competition. The stock has acted well as a result. One very pleased stockholder here.

  • Comparing Annaly Capital Management And American Capital Agency [View article]
    False. ACAS never filed for bankruptcy. They had a tough time for a while, as did most companies, particularly REITs, in the recession, but they have gone way up since. The formation of AGNC is a separate issue; and it has been a major success both in terms of generating income and captial gains. Jonk - If you want to maintain any credibility you should not make obviously false statements.

    You have it pegged. If only you could convince the folks in Washington to do something about it.

    LINE is hedged out for years, so not commodity price risk for quite a while.

  • The exponential growth and huge reserves of North Dakota's Bakken field puts it on course to produce more than 1M bbl/day by mid-2013, which would rank it among the world's most elite oil fields. Just 5K wells have been completed, but Continental (CLR) thinks the core could support up to 52K wells with four to eight wells per 1,280-acre unit for full development. [View news story]
    Oil sands are not very economical. If the oil price declines much more, it may not be even worth mining. The costs are high and the environmental issues are significant. I'd rather be in the Bakken.

    How about doing a little research before you make a recommendation. AGP is being bouth out by WLP, which is largley why it was up so much, and also why it is no longer a stock to buy.

    Yes, it's the best in that market, and not a bad market to be in either. I've made good money in this one over the last few years.

    I thought one could not use "naked" options in IRAs. What are the limitations?

  • QR Energy, LP: A Small MLP With Huge Hedges [View article]
    LINE is the best hedged of these MLPs, is larger, and has a longer track record. If you lump them all together, QRE may be better than average, but that's not a basis for claiming it is the best.

    Bernie1 - As elliot_milr says, US royalty trusts are a wasting asset. The distributions will go down to near zero over time unless oil prices go up. If you are risk adverse, you might be better off looking elsewhere.

    You found my favorite stock - REFR. It looks like it is finally ready to start making big bucks. The costs should stay fairly stable and the income should skyrocket if all goes well.

    Nice article. Unlike some articles I read about ACAS, you seem to understand the company and its potential.
