  • Yum! Brands Has 30% Upside In Next 12 Months, Best Buy In Fast Food Dining [View article]
    yeah but that doesnt stop people from panicking and taking a "just in case" approach to avoid chicken.

    i'm "shure" that the infection itself comes from chicken and birds...

  • Yum! Buyback Levitates Shares, But Chicken Is Off The Menu In China [View article]
    i currently live in shanghai and one thing for sure is that no one wants to eat chicken, just not worth the risk, especially with new deaths announced on a daily basis.

  • Tesaro's Rolapitant: Investors Pay 17x Premium For Discarded Drug [View article]
    im really trying to look into the negatives that have been stated but its just nonsense. try to at least mention some good points!

    1. half life of the drug is far superior to any other
    2. management team has decades of experience and have previously worked together developing products in the same area.
    3. US drug backed by the best VC funds, high chance of approval.
    4. to much focus on one drug, its the management team thats the gem. they had zero pipeline and investors were still throwing money at them. when it comes to oncology this team really knows what they are talking about!
    5. plenty of insider buying and no selling
    6. look at how it pop after the announcement of the secondary offering at 18 a share, 10% for 3 days straight! there was something very positive in the prospectus that hasnt been mentioned public yet.

    of course they have no cash flow ad nothing approved, but the future does look bright!

  • 3 Obstacles That Could Preclude RIM's Comeback [View article]
    how come people are so optimistic from just seeing a demo? arent demos made to look good! there are too many variables that can go wrong that would kill the company. every minor mistake will be heavily scrutinized and become a toil on the stock price. i.e. the OS system better not lag, if it even swipes slowly from one page to another BB10 is done.

  • 3 Stocks To Short In 2013 [View article]
    probably will, as soon as i get 10 minutes with a BB10 to see if its actually any good. so far, the guys at rimm that have presented the phone look desperate and uncomfortable.

    wow, so many blackberry fan boys. people just keep guzzling the kool aid. i'm considering shorting purely based on this herd mentality. also i dont believe that bb10 will sell as well as expected. everyone just got a new phone for christmas, switching phones already???

The yen sinks, with a dollar buying ¥89.8 from an earlier ¥89.4. [View news story]
