  • Gilead's Pipeline, Part 3, With Summary Comments [View article]
    This part stands out to me:

    < If one takes just a mildly optimistic view of the future, then a general uptrend in global standards of living will, if past is prologue, continue to allow healthcare to absorb a larger percentage of a larger global economic and profits pie. Within healthcare, all of us would rather take a pill than have an angioplasty or surgery, or spend our time in medical clinics. With GILD's operations focused almost entirely on oral, cutting-edge medications, with a patient management that is showing discipline in its growth strategy, the stock's current low P/E appears to provide investors with a good margin of safety in a stock market that continues to trade richly based on many historical metrics.>

    This is a great summation-thank you.

    What's 5%??

    7.5% drop for SnP...near 10% for Dow if I'm not mistaken.

  • What Today's Market Collapse Proves And What You Should Do About It [View article]
    Some of you guys didn't get enough love as children. You act like one's decision to buy, sell, or do nothing during this drop should dictate the fate of your souls.

    Sheesh...lighten up, it's only money. Your endless posts trying to outdo each other are sad. I'm pretty sure God won't bring up your investing/trading record when it's your time.

    Like Cam Hui said, have a glass of wine and relax.

  • Weekly Market Update - August 22nd, The FED And EARNINGS, Amidst A Strong Dollar And Weak Crude Oil [View article]
    Excellent ?s, fritz68. I've been trying to take in the 'big picture' w/r/t a HUGE, FAST sell off like we've seen, and I keep coming back to the possibility that those with the deepest pockets of all (like SWFs-Norway's in your posit) decided that oil is indeed headed lower and that it was time to liquidate stocks to shore up things at home.

    If we follow that line of thinking out further, the end ? is: where will oil bottom?? And the answer to that question very well may be tied to how much further the markets have to fall (perhaps it will be the cumulative avg opinion of all the SWF's and deepest pockets out there).

    Idk but that topic will be on my mind this coming week.

  • The Time To Hedge Is Now - Or Is It Too Late? [View article]
    A lot of it (derivatives, timing the market, swing trading, etc.) is for people who can afford to sit in front of their computers (Ipads, phones, whatever...) all day.

    The rest of us have obligations that require our attention during market hours, e.g. work, kids, spouse, maybe ailing parents, projects that can't wait, etc.

  • The Second Wave [View article]
    Agree jj. This is as much (more, really) political as it is economic or financial.

    The Fed is in it to win it, whether they make a move or influence the ECB or the PBoC (or whoever) to do so. The aim is the same.
