BaBOOM! or Bust?

August 22, 2010 – Comments (11) | RELATED TICKERS: GNBT , PFE , 56400P706

      I have been watching biopharmaceutical company Generex (GNBT) lately. If you have spent 5 minutes researching this stock you know that it is the center of much controversy. I have never seen a company that invokes so much emotion in investors - people either hate it with a passion or love it to death. There doesn't seem to be a middle ground. The management is questionable at best (the CEO anyway), but their product line does seem to show promise if you look past some of the "WTF were you guys thinking?!? Did you let an intern get baked in the janitorial closet and come up with the craziest products they could?" - products. Heated blog posts aside, in my opinion there doesn't seem like there is much to lose if you have a small position in GNBT. The upside could be huge and the company does make 2 steps forward for every 1 step backwards. Below, as always, I aim to provide a well-balanced, well-researched view of this pharma company.  [more]

        It is that time of year again. Earnings. Some of us run. Some of us hide. Some of strap in and hang on for the ride. If you're lucky, you have enough investing wisdom to pick some good stocks, but even the best companies have bad quarters. After dismal showings by some of my holdings and some of the stocks that populate my watchlist I started thinking, "Hey, maybe earnings aren't everything.". So why do we like earnings in the first place? They're one of the few pieces of tangible evidence we have to gauge our investments. Just like in sports, potential doesn't add up to much if you can't keep a decent balance sheet (ask JaMarcus Russell).   [more]
