Rick you too. Have a great new year.

SSE is still a big upgrade for me. It still has a big problem like SS. Level 2 is very weak for BB and OTC stocks. Most of my trading now is in penny stocks. Just have not been good at picking mid and large cap stocks. I like the penny momentum plays which really need to be watched closely minute to minute. A good level 2 is really required. Did purchase L2 from other sources in the past, but I am not as active a trader now so not using one currently.

How will bio stocks fair this year? Just may try a few. Did trade ISIS a few times last year and did well. Just wish I had held longer. It has double since my last sale.

Thanks, Jim! Oh, my..... then you're not going to enjoy today's ISIS news. Up 10% last I saw.

The sector, 2015?

>> That oil money has to go someplace <<

Message 29881017

Strong dollar and a sexy sector.

Over valuation has really only stopped the sector once, about a year after it dealt a near-lethal blow to tech. Confusion (and Franklin et al.'s heavy finger) regarding valuation stopped it another time, but I'm not particularly concerned about "bubble"... feel that the sector's strong-science companies are highly levered with good balance sheets and competitive advantages to pharma.

Feuerstein, not too long ago? He was rejoicing as the sector came back violently, twittering about bubble. Sobered sector freaks were silent, and he and his won the next few days. He's respected for good reason, and those few days showed how fragile sector sentiment can be. Many of the newbies have never lost shirt, and it showed.... we had some violent selling.

And then the sector just took off again. Hiccup.

What does stop the sector? Rapidly increasing interest rates. What are the chances that interest rates will increase rapidly in 2015? Pundits say snowball in hell.

This year is special, however, risk-wise. We have price erosion and it's all AbbVie's fault.

;-)

When I look around, I'd say that all that oil money has to go someplace!

Best! Rick

No Jim, no problems here. Had an out-of-context disconnect (first in quite some time) yesterday, but no issues today.

Best! Rick

Hey, Jim! Sector looking a little toppy, could get hit hard in any general market correction?? Indexes and ETFs...... sellers will take the sector where it shouldn't be on occasion, so the game will be to grab new leaders, if and when we correct.

Nonetheless, I do not feel that we have a bubble. Many with sector influence (and deeper pockets) have been talking bubble for a bit now, so I'm at odds with them.

Yup, no complaints here, thanks. Hope you can say the same.

this from a minute ago......


Adam Feuerstein @adamfeuerstein · 59s59 seconds ago

Just the latest RT @sharkbiotech: $DYAX going for the double off of phase 1 safety data poster boy for the #biotechbubble ?

He (Feuerstein) has been spewing this line for ages, hoping to be broken-clock correct some day.

OTOH, there are some good biotechs that I've sold to zero, waiting for them to correct.

You get the idea....... I've actually picked up a few shares here and there of late, but the seller drums are loud.

Sector is healthy, healthy, healthy....... both good and not-so-good companies have reloaded the bank account, and medical breakthroughs are popping up as routine. If there is a correction, it'll be hog heaven for biotech investors.

Rick sorry to get back so late. I always keep an eye out for the bios. Mainly the pennies with a dream. Usually just trade them, but do have a handful I am willing to hold.

Hope all is well with you and yours. Thanks for your current take. Much appreciated. Jim

"Willing to hold".... that's been a gift, having a personality that allows for a "hold" conviction. Sector continues with big news, day after day. And the filling of coffers continues.... several companies have gone back for secondaries while bank account was still full. This places lots of buffer to downside, buffering limited by burn.

Hope you're rolling in profits!

Best! Rick
