    I was thinking the same thing while reading this. COP may be one of the few not lumped into this group. Thanks for posting the link.

  • Exact Sciences - Flushing $$$ Down The Drain (2 Of 5)  [View article]
    You are guilty of doing the same thing you are accusing of! Like has been mentioned multiple times on the previous article comments and this one. You took FIT trial data from a source that is in no way close the scope of the DeepC trial. The apples to oranges comment certainly applies.

    You and me both jotenn! I have an order in at $12 if we ever get there. Maybe these guys can come up with something concrete that may actually help us get some shares on the cheap.

    That's already part of my plan. Initiate my position and buy more, just seems to be riding high right now. Trading above the 50 day and an RSI above 80.

    Do the COP longs consider this a solid entry point? I had a limit order for COP that never triggered and I've watched it go up a few bucks from then. I was hoping to grab shares on a pullback, but how long until that happens?

  • Yields Of 6% To 16%: Markets Freak Out But Patient Investors Can Benefit  [View article]
    Nice article Mike, thanks.

    Similar situation for myself here. Have a small position in AGNC and was too slow to pull the sell trigger. I'm young and don't mind waiting for this stock to turn around and in addition collect dividends along the way helping my average price to reduce.

    While past results don't always reflect future, I like the analysis of the trend from the past. Do you have any other basis for these stocks you mention to return to some sort of semblance?

    I have been long AGNC and have watched them rise and fall through the beginning of QE3 where Kain and his team reorganized the portfolio to profit from the bond buying when everyone panicked. I don't see why this can't happen again. I was hoping to see what happens with upcoming earnings to see if they could show they are working on righting the ship.

    I don't necessarily want to sell, but I'm torn on this one. I've always been a proponent of following the money in the market and it seems like the money has left this sector for the time being.

  • Panicky selling grips the mortgage REITs (REM -3.5%) as Treasury yields soar following the payroll report. American Capital (AGNC -6.9%), (MTGE -5%), Annaly (NLY -6.9%) Chimera (CIM -4.9%), Armour (ARR -3.9%), Invesco (IVR -2.7%), CYS Investments (CYS -3%). CYS' Kevin Grant was public a month ago about being a happy buyer as yields rose - a bit early on that call.  [View news story]
    I am in the same boat with AGNC. Down a lot, but see the potential in the long run. Just not sure it's worth it right now. Down almost 20% and can't pull the sell trigger.

    Can't decide what to do with AGNC anymore. Been holding and want to keep holding until earnings, but there is a lot of time until then. Can't lose more than 20% on this before I get out. I was foolish enough to let it go this far.

    Anyone else struggling with whether or not to sell recently? At this point even the dividends don't help if we are continually dropping like this.

    Great article. Bought in at 10 before the recent run up and couldn't be happier. If we see close to 10 again after this tranche unlocks I am a buyer.

  • 6 Ways You Can Profit From Molecular Diagnostics  [View article]
    Well said ET. To touch more on that, Owik if all of the really great companies are private. Who is doing what EXAS doing on the private side? How close are they and do they have patent protection that EXAS currently holds? I'm sure there are others doing what EXAS is, but find it hard to believe anyone is as close or doing it better than them at this point in time.

    I agree with makeitbig. Kudos for the reply. You are indeed one of the few who own up to it on this site. Nice to see that some do actually care. That big drop was indeed a great opportunity. I loaded up myself and am sitting pretty right now.

    This is a nice article, but I would say you need to do some additional homework on Exact Sciences.

    You, like most other who bashed this stock on the release of the trial results seem to have a weak understanding of pre-cancerous polyps and their that the 42% for pre-cancerous polyps were for polyps 1 cm in size. Pre-cancerous polyps 2 cm in size are detected at a rate of 66%. These 1 cm polyps have a small chance of resulting in cancer and if the test were to pick them up this early you have a high rate of false positives. In addition, if you were to be screened multiple times over a few years you would have a much higher rate of detection. Not too mention those 1 cm polyps may have grown in size and now will be detectable at the higher sensitivity.

    You then go on to say that the Cologuard tests' "detection rate is equal to, or worse than traditional screening methods". I would like to know which "traditional screening methods" you are using and how you might justify this. An excellent article providing a breakdown of how Cologuard compares to the colonoscopy (the gold standard screening method) and the FOBT/FIT (blood test) was written yesterday. A well written article that gives a potential investor a good start to understanding EXAS and Cologuard.

    You can find that article here: http://seekingalpha.co...

    All in all I find it hard to believe that you are recommending EXAS as one of "6 Ways You Can Profit From Molecular Diagnostics" by the way you wrote about them.

  • General Electric Looks As If It's Becoming The Shareholder-Friendly Company It Once Was  [View article]
    Great article! Puts GE into a good perspective for those looking at brushing up on their knowledge as well as new investors.

    I myself got started investing summer of 2010 and GE was one of the first stocks I purchased. They were originally in the $17-$19/share price when I bought, but I was able to add shares here and there through dips. Overall I am long on GE and plan on adding to my position in GE when an opportunity presents itself. The recent dip in to the $22s was my most recent purchase.

    I agree with those above. You did an great job explaining differences between the tests and anyone with misinformation or a lack of understanding of this industry should read this. Especially Kurshid over at Wedbush!
