  • Which Is The Better Investment, Peer Loans Or Lending Club Stock? [View article]
    "Enter separate buy orders at $22 and $20 per share for your total investment."

    I am going to go out on a limb here and say LC will never see $22 again, unless, of course, Putin puts nukes in Crimea.

  • A Scandal That Should Shock Nobody [View article]
    Zulalily--If your "trusted financial advisor" let you put over 25% of your portfolio in one asset class like REITs, then he is someone NOT to be trusted. Diversify!!! No more than 10% in one asset class and include some foreign exposure like HEDJ. Run like hell from anything with accounting irregularities and always, ALWAYS, get a second opinion on anything you hear or read.

    Sheesh, some people.

  • Hain Celestial: 2 Charts The Bulls Don't Want You To See [View article]
    Yes, but by my way of thinking, if the cash is coming in the door by the truck load and being used for growth and acquisitions, the more cash that is burned the better. As long as the dividend gets raised......

    I am betting that HAIN will start paying a dividend soon, maybe after the stock splits.

  • How Healthy Were Hain Celestial's Q1 Results? [View article]
    Thanks for the article. I have wanted to own Hain Celestial for years but always felt it was too expensive. Finally accepted the bitterness of a stretched valuation and bought it yesterday. The company is becoming a juggernaut that may eventually swallow the likes of General Mills.

  • What Happens When Solar Costs Go Below Fossil Fuels? [View article]
    There is Moore's law for semiconductors. And then there is Swanson's Law for photovoltaic cells. What is the disruptor scale for fracking and burning fossil fuels?

    The author mentions dye-sensitized technology, but after 20 years of NOT investing in solar stocks, I recently took a small position in Natcore (NTCXF), a solar cell company that has some pretty cool thin film science using black silicon and room temperature deposition. They are located in the Kodak research complex in Rochester with the expectation that their solar cells will be manufactured on a Kodak roll-to-roll printer. Imagine one day buying solar cells like a bolt of fabric that you can unroll on your roof, or carry in your backpack.

  • Trillium Therapeutics: A Preclinical Cancer Immunotherapy Company With A Promising Lead Compound [View article]
    Thanks for the great research on Trillium. I am holding a loss with Trillium, but staying for the long term ; although I have a slight concern about any patent that might be wrapped around Weissman's work.

  • What To Do When You Can't Find Anything To Buy [View article]
    Pound-O.........Chubb and Aflac, those two names are on my want list, too. Today, I considered increasing my position in The Bancorp (TBBK) by a scary reckless amount. But the author is right, the low hanging fruit is gone.

  • Seeking Delta [View article]
    Tough crowd! I enjoyed the article very much. Learning to take emotion out of investing takes years of discipline, and the author provides some very useful techniques to de-risk the amygdala.

  • Are These 3 Biotech Companies Still Worth A Gamble? [View article]
    "The simple answer here Dream team group failed to do the job they were paid to do. "

    I agree with the Occam approach here. An even simpler explanation is that DTG saw an opportunity to make some side money bets. Think about it, they could seed an article on Seeking Alpha and be guaranteed a quick pop in the stock. This (SA effect) is a fairly recent phenomenon, by the way. It was only about 8-12 months ago that articles on Seeking Alpha could move a stock significantly, the way Cramer's televised proclamations could. The question I have, though: did DTG play Galena on the short side as well? If DTG were willing to violate their contractual trust by posting on SA without disclosure, then certainly they would have no scruples about double dealing, long or short.

    It is not credible, imo, that the Galena company insiders would risk their careers, reputations, AND personal profits, by violating security laws and posting on SA without disclosure.
