Alstry Appreciation Month In September

August 29, 2009 – Comments (5) | RELATED TICKERS: SPX

   This Is just my opinion,but If a lot of you fools out there would put as much time and energy Into stock research as you do worrying about Alstry's next post,you would probably get richer sooner rather than later. Freedom of speech Is a treasured priviledge,and should not be taken lightly. People are always going to have differing opinions on a wide array of subjects. While I respect anyones opinion,I still reserve the right to RESPECTFULLY disagree. Have you ever met Alstray ? You don't have a clue about him as an Individual,yet you are willing to disrespect him because he has a different perspective or opinion (THAN YOU) as It pertains to certain subjects ?  To try to hold him down on this 9/09 thing and say that If the world doesen't collapse before then,that he Is somehow Irrelevent after this date Is completely nonsensical. Why don't we just all try to get along,and help each other In these difficult times. Believe It or not Alstray IS trying to help. I do not believe that he blogs to Insult anyone,and he does have the right to defend himself from certain attack dogs within the caps community.....  Lets see what happens In the weeks ahead,then have a grown- up,respectful conversation about It.   TS          [more]

Flat Incomes Raise Doubt About Ecomomic Recovery

August 29, 2009 – Comments (9)

        I've been saying this for MONTHS...  The consumer Is tapped out,and IS NOT spending money. More banks have failed over the weekend,Including two more In California. The FDIC Is broke.....   Guess that means the market will rally another 1000 points.... Sheesh.......  TS     http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20090829/ap_on_bi_ge/us_bank_closures;_ylt=AqcPRV6jwB2Djzob9kcOJwOyBhIF;_ylu=X3oDMTJsNnBjODdnBGFzc2V0A2FwLzIwMDkwODI5L3VzX2JhbmtfY2xvc3VyZXMEY3BvcwM1BHBvcwMyBHNlYwN5bl9oZWFkbGluZV9saXN0BHNsawNyZWd1bGF0b3Jzc2g-          http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20090828/ap_on_bi_go_ec_fi/us_economy  [more]

As bank failures accelerate,so does the stock market!

August 22, 2009 – Comments (6) | RELATED TICKERS: BAC , GS , MS

  Is It me,or does It seem like the more BAD news we get,the higher the stock market goes....  California (THE SO CALLED BELLWEATHER STATE) for just about everything,Is hemorraging jobs. Their unemployment rate Is now nudging 12% !  Nevada just hit an all time high of 14% !  Consumers ARE NOT spending money. On CNBC just two days ago,all the {MARKET PROS} were adamant that for the market to go higher,that the CONSUMER (who constitutes 70% of gross GDP) would need to open up their pocketbooks,and start SPENDING.....  That IS NOT HAPPENING !!!  I believe that this market Is exibiting IRRATIONAL EXUBERENCE again,just like In 1987.....   The banks took the money from tarp,and guess what?? They are shoving It all Into the markets,Including buying their own stocks,preferred shares,and any other debt Instruments that can make TONS OF MONEY FOR THEMSELVES. But If you or I want a loan...  HA HA H#$%$%^&^%^ NO WAY !!!  But they WILL give you 2% on your $150,000.00 CD !!!   What a joke....  You wonder why the BANK STOCKS are rocketing to the moon. The banks are buying all of the shares !!!!!!   Bank Of america ?%%^%^& just cut my credit limit on one of my cards (Which I have not missed a payment on) and RAISED my Interest rate !!!!!!    I thought CONGRESS already addressed that ???   I help bail them out,and they kick me to the curb !!!!   I just can't wait to spend ALL OF THE EXTRA CASH THAT I HAVE !!!!   Even though I have been unemployed for SIX MONTHS........   Hows that for GREEN SHOOTS !!!!!???     TS           http://www.marketwatch.com/story/three-more-bank-failures-as-tally-reaches-80-2009-08-21?dist=bigcharts  [more]

Why Is everybody trashing Ariad Pharmaceuticals

August 01, 2009 – Comments (2) | RELATED TICKERS: ARIA , MRK

    On June 9th Ariad was a three star stock ready to roar,now after some encouraging results from 2 different drug studies, Its a one star stock ready to plunge....  The people behind these star ratings obviously do not understand biotech companies,or how they are valued. Even though some of the milestone payments from Merck will be delayed due to uncertainties on how to optimize their registration strategy of ridaforolimus for breast cancer In particular,this Is a small part of the bigger picture If you read the companies press release,or listen tn their conference call. "The parties(Merck) are working together to revise the clinical trial program In the GLOBAL DEVELOPMENT PLAN for ridaforolimus In cancer indications beyond sarcomas". New milestones are highly likely to be created for Ariad because they see multiple opportunities for ridaforolimus beyond what they were focusing on In the prior months. The data they are getting back has made them stop and evaluate their best possible course of action to get the most bang for the buck when they present their data for submission, In more than likely, MULTIPLE INDICATIONS. Clinical Investigators will present data on oral ridaforolimus In combination with (AVASTIN) In patients with heavily pretreated,advanced solid tumors at the upcoming European Society of Medical Oncology In Berlin Germany on September 20th through the 24th of this year. It will be the first time that complete data from the study will be presented.   As a footnote, the health bill that was approved TODAY In committee, handed the drug Industry a victory by voting 47- 18 to grant 12 years of market protection to High-Tech drugs used to combat CANCER,parkinsons,and other deadly diseases. According to the author of the article,this decision was a setback to the Whitehouse which had hoped to give patients faster access to generic versions of costly biotech medicines like the BLOCKBUSTER DRUG (AVASTIN)....       [more]
