AAPL hit 190 today, took a tiny hit in after hours trading, but what a freaking run it's had.

I didnt notice this thread...

Ive been in on FNM, FRE, and AIG for quite a while now.

I'm dumping a few paychecks on PFE and BMY to hold until this UHC debate shakes out. Universal prescription coverage means 30% more sales (or more, the poor tend to be less healthy).

I'm really not liking the high numbers in this month of the year, we are due for a bloodbath in the coming months. My finger is on the "sell everything trigger" 24/7.

How do you guys feel about S (Sprint)? I think the numbers they will show for the qrt. at the end of the month are going to be better than expected based off theeir new smartphones; Touch Pro 2, Hero, and Pre. I know they have their issues but the price is at $3.73 right now.

I sold the majority of my SNWT shares (formally HSBY). I have only 2,500 shares left... plan to get rid of that sometime tomorrow/Friday. It can still go up more past that, but the level of risk has increased and this run can't sustain based on fundamentals at this time.

In 3 weeks time, buying in at .50 cents and getting most out $1.30... I'll take an easy triple anytime rather than get greedy to eek out a little more.

Now we can concentrate on what RMBS is doing

I got out Monday afternoon. So naturally it had a good day yesterday, Cramer pumped it as hard as he could for an entire segment last night, and then it kept on going today. FML.

TSRA is still undervalued, but it's going to ebb and flow with the finicky market. I got out of their options, but still own the shares. Their value without the potential litigation settlements is worth more than the $29 the stock is showing.

I bought GNVC, it's a typical biopharmaceutical company that rely on grants and selling stocks/warrants with a promising pipeline. Their lead product TNFerade for locally advanced pancreatic cancerlooks very promising, in phase 3 trial. A lot of patients and their families are begging the company/government to let them get on the trial, but can't.
Google Connie Loughman, tons of stories out there, the drug even cured one guy (richard Jordan).

they are also in foot and mouth disease, HIV, Malaria, heart disease.

cons: might get delisted in 3/2010 if the stock price stays below a buck, no partnership with other big pharma. They could also run out of money. Do your own DD.

Good luck to all!


oh yeah, patrick swayze did not use the drug TNFerade, I think he used Cyberknife. May he RIP.

GNVC has the highest buy rating on reuters... might be worth a shot with some "play" money.

They have to be up to a dollar for 10 consecutive days or they risk being delisted from the Nasdaq.

That's the rumor. I've been buying in the 15s and 16s for weeks here and there... all this green is tempting.

The volume is getting pretty big on RMBS.

Just as an FYI, the ITC trial with Nvidia starts next week - decision comes out at the end of January. The AT trial is scheduled to start in January.

There's going to be a lot of rumors of buyouts, settlements, etc. flying around, but until it hits, enjoy the volitile ride.

Haven't sold at all... I enjoy seeing my net worth jump up and down and up and down in $20k-$30k increments in a matter of seconds on the RMBS train

After mostly recovering since last October I'm back to really cash heavy. I just have a bad feeling (along with lots of others) that we're going to be correcting soon and see a huge sell off. I'm just waiting to go in on some short index ETF's.

Don't get too greedy.

You all can thank me later (or now)

I bought PENC for a swing trade, bought 10,000 shares at .355 - this is not a recommendation to buy, I'm not as confident as I was with HBSY/SNWT.

EDIT: I had 2,500 leftover shares of SNWT I didn't realize until this morning, due to buying some more on that dip the other week. Just sold that batch for $1.70 this morning - at the high of the day (so far). Talk about lucky timing!
