  • Intercept Pharma plans Phase 3 study of OCA in NASH that will support application for early approval [View news story]
    Many early investors bought on the basis of reports of great results in Phase 11. It was understood the results were so good, the study was ended early and the drug would be "fast tracked."

    The following is an excerpt from a March 20 news release:
    "A rolling New Drug Application (NDA) with the FDA is underway for PBC and should be completed in Q2 (in addition to a Marketing Authorization Application in Europe). The commercial launch is planned in both the U.S. and Europe for 2016."

    Now I might not have summarized this correctly but most investors were not prepared for their money to sit while waiting for a 6 year phase 111 study prior to approval & marketing.

    Good question Sargon. Purchase & Installation Cost is a minor consideration compared to efficiency of conversion to power.

  • High Arctic Energy Services: Spring Clearance Sale Is Ending Soon [View article]
    Timmies, you are "Spot On" about Asian LNG. One only has to review the history of PT Badak & Pertamina which have profitably supplied most of Japan's Natural Gas for over 30 years.

  • High Arctic Energy Services: Spring Clearance Sale Is Ending Soon [View article]
    Value Digger, I've followed this small play since Vasant Jain's Seeking Alpha article of Jan 3 and the Brickburn Asset Management report of March 30. This is one security that should certainly remain isolated from mainstream E&P fluctuations, however up to now, it's pricing has followed the general market slump.

    Your article has much more detailed information and an incredible amount of in depth analysis than recommendations over the past 4 months.

    Thank you!

    gary, djsulli, and others above:

    Have you considered selling some of your long positions to capture some profit and buying back in when it drops down to proper "Fair Value," "buying range," etc?

  • Expect Walgreens To Acquire Rite Aid [View article]
    Great point popeye!
    I worked for JCPenney years ago and they were so concerned about Unionization that they placed their Computer Servers inside their large Warehouses (rather than free standing bldg) in order to make it harder to Unionize the Data Room Associates.) They crunched many gasoline credit cards along with their own so the rooms were big. What a nightmare for Risk Management in regards to exposure to fire!
