  • "Not even the blue chips avoid the zigzag of the market." Indeed, AAPL was $90 a year ago. Up over 60% since then including dividends. Underperforming AUPH, ESPR, AKAO, but still not too shabby....

  • $CLQ...I'd like more too, but then I'd go crazy every time it drops 5 cents. As it is I have as much as I can stand....

  • $MRLDF...I'm going to hang on. The idea of getting .25 of a share for every share of MRLDF that I own is quite appealing....

  • STM - this is one of the very best descriptions of micro-biotech investing I have ever seen. The complexity of the battlefield is only exceeded by its subtlety. This is not conventional linear investing....

  • $SAND is not a gamble. Mariana was a speculation, but Sandstorm is a first-rate investment. It is the nature of Sandstorm's business that they take calculated risks on individual projects. But the risk in an individual deal in Sandstorm's portfolio does not make them a gamble, in my opinion. Granted the Mariana deal is very large for Sandstorm, but they are not taking a lot of money ris...

  • $GLDLF...Katusa is very heavily invested in GLDLF and pushing his own book. Not that I blame him but in this case he may not be completely objective. He is wild about Amir Adnani. Adnani has accomplished a lot and is very connected with top promoters, so you will get bombarded about his projects. So I have a position in UEC, and would consider GLDLF, but I am not 100% sold on GLDLF as a...

  • Only followed 3 recommendations over the past year, but they all made money. I personally don't follow every recommendation of any newsletter after being burned many times, but use them as a scanner....

  • Ivanhoe Platreefs is a monster multi-metallic project that headlines platinum. There are six economical metals there. But it is only one of three projects, so if you are not wild about platinum, Ivanhoe is still a tremendous value. Unless you don't believe in copper or zinc either....

  • Everyone smiles knowingly at the guy who bets on a roulette single number....then they applaud wildly when it comes right....we all love a winner! I love you guys; youve helped me enormously. I will applaud or commiserate with you, so long as you accept up front that its a gamble rather than an investment. GL...

  • Yes Dent is convincing with his demographic cliff argument but touvWOULD have kissed the bull run of the century if tou hadvavidly followed his advice! Whats worse is he is now reconnending BUYS. Arrgh. I have unsubscribed...

  • leslie7...thanks, I like Katusa a lot and have come to similar conclusions about several of the sectors he mentions. I also feel very good about the main points of focus he mentions about particular sectors, as my holdings have taken into account the same factors....

  • $RDUS np Thanks for the reminder. I've been in and out of RDUS since Glenn & Doc first brought it to our attention. The FDA just approved abalaparatide (which will be marketed as TYMLOS) yesterday, a couple of months ahead of schedule. This is a treatment for osteoporosis in post-menopausal women, not a small indication, with postentially wider uses. http://investors.radiuspharm.com/release...

  • As said before, I think the better measure would be: How many companies recommended by Dr. KSS are successful at each stage of the development process, and damn the stock price movement? The answer is mindboggling. You just have to change your definition of success in the short term and wait to the final act to play out and the curtain calls....

  • I actually sold my position in Fairfax earlier this week because I've been disappointed in stock price. I know this is more of a long term hold and may re-enter later when it looks like growth picks back up. I've been quite happy with Coresite since I bought it last year. I will probably take profits here and there unless something really big changes my view on this one. Skyworks Solutions...

  • I'm a datahound too, so I understand where mmariotti is coming from. But again, the big problem here is the volatility--in the example I gave above, let's say $YYZ is bought out at $18 at the end of the year--depending when you got in, you could have anywhere from 50%-nearly 200% profit. And any of those entry points would have been reasonable and supportable! Everyone is happy in the end, thoug...

  • mmariotti, - all friendly from me, just a little scared that your question shows you maybe are at greater risk for losing money if luck isn't with you. There has been so much teaching in the threads, by Doc as well as others, as we try to help each other make better trades, improve timing, learn how to think of risk, spread our bets, look for danger. I'm a little better than even, and as a n...

  • MMarioti, During a biotech bear or bull market? Honestly, I think people who read only the initial articles, don't do any considering, any DD, and then don't keep up with the ongoing discussions are taking on even more risk than the incredibly high risk segment that is biotech. If you don't have a lot of time to keep up, that's not your fault, but if I ever decide I don't have the time, I will p...

  • Thank you. I don't follow these discussion boards regularly and was just looking for a "cheat sheet" so to speak. I have too invested in a few of the companies discussed but don't watch this close enough to get in on every play. I see I've made a few enemies on here and that wasn't my intention. So my apologies to anyone I've offended....

  • Joined for a year and most positions lost money. You had to actively be involved to keep up with the trades and for the percentage of my portfolio I wanted to dedicate to currency trades it was way too much work for no real returns!...

  • Astonishing work Cleveland, thank you very very much!...

  • I can tell you that I have invested in a bunch of companies vetted by Dr. KSS and the group here, and the biotech portion of my portfolio is up around 60-70% in the past year, despite several inevitable flame-outs. It was helped by a couple of huge successes, which were telegraphed and I was able to increase my position in before the market realized what was happening (e.g., $AKAO). Does that hel...

  • I own both $SAND and $MRLDF, although I did sell half my shares in $MRLDF this week for a nice 50% profit. I have a smallish position in $SAND and it's in red, especially after this week. But I look at it as a long term winner so I may add more next week to take advantage of the price drop. Add in my $MRLDF shares and I'll have full postion in $SAND at a good price....

  • Thank you. $CLRB and $ABIVAX I believe their is a connection between CELLECTAR BIOSCIENCES and ABIVAX that I am working on and Joy Amundson is one of the connectors. Very exciting....

  • Interesting that he recommends $GLDLF. I recently sold all my shares in it for a nice profit after holding for a few years and a few name changes (they were Brazil Resources if I'm not mistaken). I'm trying to how to best position myself for the next big rise in gold and silver which I think will start later this year....

  • Thank you. My comment wasn't intended to "take away energy" or be negative. Just looking for a quick and concise way to view actual results. I appreciate the articles posted by the good Dr. Keep up the good work!...

  • That might be a reasonable request in many places, but this forum just doesn't work like that. I don't really know what else to say. Read all of Sharon's post above at 9.15 today, and maybe you'll start to get the flavour of it.......

  • Hello mmariotti, I've learned this is tricky to measure, because of the inherent volatility of these tiny biotechs. Example: Dr. KSS "recommends" stock $YYZ. At the time he mentions it, $YYZ is trading at $10. By the end of the day, it experienced the "gummie pop" and closes at $13. Over the next eight months, the stock price gradually bleeds down to $8. Then, after releasing positive Phase ...

  • Mmariotti - I assume you have some sort of electronic device since you figured out how to post a comment. Use that device to do your own due diligence - like the rest of us. Educate yourself about biotech. Adopt a little kaizen in your life. Start adding value. Don't take away energy!...

  • Well, you know what I mean. Just curious to see how these emerging biotechs pan out. That's all....

  • Fascinating read... thank you....

  • Long Nemaska Lithium (NMX.TO - OTC. NMKEF) You might want to take a look at Nemaska Lithium. I picked them up this time last year ( a little too earily ) but here is a link to their webpage press releases for 2017. They are on a good role, and they are already sending processed samples to potential customers for testing and evaluation http://www.nemaskalithium.com/en/investors/press-release...

  • ha ha hedy. YOU are psychic....

  • $SAND fp. Thanks, Alan. So, it seems todays price has failure at Madden at least partly built in, which is sort-of like getting success for a pittance. For me SAND is a long term hold and add, maybe trade on the edges, and I'm buying the chance for Nolan to prove he can grow it into one of the big boys. I sure don't want to be buying if/when gold is shooting up. Accumulate in a down market,...

  • I've tried many, and this is the best I've found. It reflects exactly my investment principles, which have worked well over a long time (age 90+). Too expensive and somewhat repetitive. Right wing views suit me fine!...

  • Dear Dr. KSS, I wanted to let you know if I never did before that what you have done for me and others here at Stock Gumshoe is unbelievably gracious, kind and caring for people you never met. In a world that could be could be so cold and cruel you stand out and continue to donate your time to assist all of us. You have given me a renewed vigor and zest for life again. After 17 years of passionate...

  • Biojuy76, I am going to be the fool in angel-avoided territory, and give this a whirl. Dr KSS wanted to avoid a pop that didn't coincide with the one coming for the phase2 readout, as too many pops and sags could leave the stock whimpering for a long time. (you did read his "long idea of the month", right?) So he gave us a day to get in. Unfortunately, the management of this company respond...
