@madtitan2. I became a professional stock picker for several notable investment banks and investment companies, looking at large- and small-cap companies with "therapeutics" (ie, anyone with a drug- biotech, pharma, spec pharma, generics). But I'm currently sitting out of that game. (I'm not going to press under my real name so you'll have to judge for yourself whether I know what I'm talking about at all!) I believe in fundamental research and "valuations" to justify longer-term positions but appreciate the drivers of short-term stock movements.
