April 7, 2014

This discussion is designed to run parallel with the Dr KSS’s article ’Another Hot Australian Biotech: Is Biotron Right for Your Portfolio?’ http://www.stockgumshoe.com/2014/04/microblog-another-hot-australian-biotech-is-biotron-right-for-your-portfolio/ and serves to provide a free general chat room. With luck it will stop the main thread becoming so cluttered with (while often v interesting), random/off topic/thank you posts. If the strategy doesn’t work/appeal, it can easily be ignored/ditched without affecting the main thread. GLA

Kenny, I want to take advantage of the prices as well – can’t decide where to take advantage. I don’t have a position in QRXPY or DRTX. I do have BNIKF, ISR,CTIX,PTN,SNWV,ATHJF and OXBT. Can’t decide to reduce my cost basis in OXBT (5.65!) or take new positions in QRXPY and DRTX.

Is anyone else in buy mode, or waiting to see how the next couple sessions play out?

Great post Pockets! I am happy there is another solution for those who don’t use Outlook.

Hey Bradley: I am holding OXBT, ATHJF, QRXPY, DRTX, CTIX, PTN, SNWV, BNIKF,ELTP,AND ISR
I took my profits in ISR and then went back in for small position when it came back, QRXPY is back where I entered so I am good there, I am waiting for DRTX to find its bottom to average down, as I bought at $14.00, I will take additional purchases in CTIX, BNIKF, and maybe SNWV.
Also looking for possibly another 5k in ATHJF if I am confortable enough with the bottom end.

Also holding Mankind as I wan’t smart enough to sell when it hit $8.00 (Oh Well) I will hang on to it and see where it goes. I think it has room to grow some more.

Thanks Thomas, I have an order in for 1K QRXPY at 3.87 – it hasn’t filled yet. I wish I would have been in Mannkind! I got in ISR near close yesterday and paid 1.67 – it is the only green in my portfolio today.

Bummer Bradley: I am looking at the last sale on Level II at 15:54:34 EDT for $3.86 2500K Funny the one I care about the least is ISR but I have been watching it for a year got in and out when it would ride up from $.55 to $.89 and back and forth. I did that several times, and then was able to get in at $.80 and bought more at $.99 and rode it up for my biggest gain ever. Sold enough to cover cost and then the balance at $2.80 Now I am back in at the… Read More »

Bradley – I am holding the same positions as you plus couple others but no SNWV. May buy that one soon. Showing profits in PTN, PVCT (which I have been looking to sell but doing good), QRXPY and slight profit in ECTE. I had been averaging down on RNN and CTIX and DRTX but prices down since, so should have waited (thats the 20/20 hindsight thing). Had a 1 day buy/sell of ISR for nice profit, and haven’t gone back in and dont intend to. Otherwise I am holding pat for now but if Beni should further weaken I plan… Read More »

GILD, Pricing and politics… Some thoughts on the pricing of GILD’s Sovaldi, the political reaction, and what we might expect in the future. As Dr KSS said, it is cheaper to for the country to treat HCV patients with Sovaldi than to endure the costs of treating them over the long term. However, as a taxpayer, I have sympathy with the congressional questions over the cost per patient. This is not a simple question to deal with as there are many factors and many players in the game. So here are some thoughts I’ve had on what may be motivating… Read More »

timmuggs; I think you have a good read as to how things actually work & I do not blame Congress or the President for that.. I blame the voters for not doing their homework.
Personally I am glad we don’t get all the government we pay for. fa

Where is it written in our Constitution that Congress or the Executive Branch are responsible for health care management and empowered to act in “regulating” health care ? The only legitimate regulatory role of the federal government in this arena is that served by the FDA (i.e., public safety). If Congress and the Executive Branch adhered to the “First Do No Harm” principle, they would abstain from illegitimate (i.e., without Constitutional empowerment) meddling in health care.

Frank, it would be nice if we got SOME of the government that we pay for.

Great post, well reasoned, and very informative. But I doubt that our amazingly do-little congress will address the topic. They are focused only on the 2016 election.

Hmmmmmm…do-little…..Maybe we need a Dr. Dolittle to talk to the animals there.

Hey om sharma, I’d love to hear your thoughts on Sigma Labs (SGLB) when you get a chance to share your expertise. I have been in the stock with a small amount of money since last summer also.

Elliot Sedlecky – In 3D printing arena SGLB have good reputation. They have solid key patents. High-level scientists and engineers out of Los Alamos National Laboratory with great attitude and very hard working. They spend less mount of $$ with outside services and do most of the experimental stuff in the house. Working with GE and Honeywell like big companies, sigma-labs is providing advanced manufacturing expertise in the area of systems integration technology and support for these companies. Sigma-labs developed in-process inspection technology known as PrintRite3D® that allows manufacturers of safety-critical components to inspect the product as it’s being made… Read More »

Ive been to GR a few times, it’s about 2.5 hour drive. I’ve been in my area for 55 years. The winter used to be a lot of fun for me as I participated in winter sports. Now that i’m older, not so much. I have the means to move to a warmer climate, but I think i’m going to be a lifer – I do enjoy the seasons.

I’m only 26, Bradley, but I’ve lived here all my life and don’t foresee a move. Cheers
