  • woodman: $ESPR continues to bounce off rising support (since Nov. 2017). It's consolidating with horizontal resistance as it moves up rising support to form what I call a flat top "wedge."
  • rachel: ...
    $ESPR – squeezing. Resistance at $80.  Alert $79.50
    $CASA – flag?
    Growth Stock List notes:

    $KEM – added. Starting to work out of a squeeze?  $20 is the ceiling now.

    $YY – buy here?
  • woodman: $ESPR - we have (1) a tag off rising support (drawn from 11/14), (2) an inside and up after two inside days, and (3) a bullish engulfing candle. All after an extreme pre-market panic following pricing action on a competing drug of $REGN/$SNY.
  • woodman: $ESPR - easy to understand article:
  • issues: @woodman $ESPR But the chart doesn't look good to me. Does it to you?
  • woodman: @issues $ESPR - long term for me, as we roll into a ton of data coming throughout the year. It will be make or break the company. As far as the chart is concerned, watch rising support drawn from 11/14/17 (touching 2/6/18 and yesterday) , which is still intact.
  • woodman: $ESPR - good phase 3 results for its LDL-lowering drug designed for people who cannot take, or are not doing well on, statins. The stock dove at first, but bounced at the 50 day and is forming a decent tail. Still red, however. I'm speculating that approval for this one is already baked in. It will have a lot of additional data this year, and I will continue to hold this one for the long term.
  • woodman: $ESPR - loaded up with Phase 3 data in 2018.
  • woodman: $ESPR flying today; up near resistance now.
  • woodman: $ESPR - lots of milestones coming for this one, from March through the rest of the year:
  • bRobert: $ESPR . Still long term hold. Weekly breakout/ throw back and run. Target $100+
  • woodman: $ESPR - added this morning.
  • bRobert: $ESPR . WEEKLY has always been my time frame since squeeze breakout last year. WEEKLY breakout/throwback. Target $!00+ . Long stock/leap calls/spreads . HOLDING stock
  • issues: Stopped out of: $SPR $LUV $ESPR $CC$FCX$ CAR $WB $CVS $NVDA $CTRL $MRVL
  • audrina0904: $ESPR - making a real nice push higher after good pullback this AM
  • bRobert: @audrina0904 $ESPR YUP. Easy to hold. Target $100
  • bRobert: $ESPR WEEKLY flag Target $100
  • woodman: $ESPR - added a little at 71.98.
  • bRobert: @woodman $ESPR Love a good shakeout
  • woodman: @bRobert $ESPR - lots of data coming this year, pretty much each quarter.
  • bRobert: @woodman $ESPR I know a lot about this company and drug. Actually too much . Trial results cut both ways. Just trading the chart from my isolation tank.
  • issues: @woodman $ESPR Thank you for the reminder. I bought 1/2 position again. I had sold at a good profit yesterday.
  • Alexander: @woodman $ESPR Do you have stop loss or this is for long term hold?
  • woodman: $ESPR - on watch to add.
  • bRobert: @woodman $ESPR I mentioned recently that I hedged my position by selling premium against my underlying due to the huge run up and high premiums offered. If you look at the WEEKLY you can see a volatility squeeze breakout and run up followed by a throw back that may test the $65 area. It was due for a pullback/rest. This is healthy. It shakes out the weak hands and builds a better base t for the next climb.
  • woodman: @bRobert $ESPR - $65 area is around the the 34dEMA which has been some past pullback support. That's also the 50 Fib Retracement (12/17/17 low to yesterday high). Wee little bounce here at the middle BB area (38.2 Fib Ret.).
  • woodman: $ESPR - lots of data coming this this Q (Phase 2 and Phase 3) and rest of year (Phase 3).
  • bRobert: @woodman $ESPR I find that kind of talk very arousing to my financial pleasure center
  • bRobert: $ESPR Easy to hold Target $100+ Add on pullbacks. Strong underlying support
  • bRobert: $ESPR sale over
  • issues: @bRobert $ESPR escalator up please!
  • bRobert: $ESPR nh WEEKLY breakout from squeeze. Remember these weekly/monthly breakouts go very far. More powerful than just daily breakouts. Makes it easy to buy the pullbacks. Target $100 No surprise.
  • Motorman: @bRobert $ESPR Rolled calls, thanks for all the posts...made $$$.
  • tjv821: @bRobert $ESPR I should have listened to you about 20.00 ago :(
  • bRobert: @tjv821 $ESPR Been in since weekly breakout $15. I post a lot about this one. $90 + target going up to $110
  • bRobert: $ESPR Option premium high. Sold some leap calls Jan $95 for very hefty premium. Still 50% upside to underlying stock. $15 + premium in bank. Long stock/ call spreads Short Leap calls
  • bRobert: $ESPR flag. Target $90+ Short interest diminishing.
  • bRobert: $ESPR nh Target $100. Buy on pb
  • bRobert: $ESPR WEEKLY volatility squeeze breakout beauty.
  • woodman: @gwenzee $ABMD $ONCE #Biotech- my current biotechs are $HALO $ESPR $SRPT $BLUE and, recently on the pullback, $JUNO.
  • gwenzee: @woodman $ABMD $ONCE $HALO $ESPR $SRPT $BLUE $JUNO #Biotech- You are doing well, my friend. Had SRPT and JUNO and BLUE at one time. Sold all and never bought back in. Today I'm holding ABMD, $CYRX, $OMER, $ONCE $INCY and $PBYI. Some of these look like an E-ride at Disneyland. Hope springs eternal.
  • woodman: @gwenzee $ABMD $ONCE $HALO $ESPR $SRPT $BLUE $JUNO $CYRX $OMER $INCY $PBYI #Biotech- PBYI may be coming to life again. I can't figure out INCY, but, fwiw, it's pulled all the way back to the 200 week. Maybe it will start to play nicely again. I'll send you some positive vibes. :-)
  • gwenzee: @woodman $ABMD $ONCE $HALO $ESPR $SRPT $BLUE $JUNO $CYRX $OMER $INCY $PBYI #Biotech- In the past had made some good $$$ on INCY. It is an old friend who has forgotten me. It still has a great pipeline and there has got to be a pony in there some place.

  • issues: Trying to decide which chart looks better $FSLR or $SEDG? I think it's FSLR but I don't really want to plant the flag on the top of the mountain. Holding 1/2 position on SEDG but NP on FSLR. Added to $ANET $SQ $SPR (4th try for a BO) $YY $ESPR. Cramer had good words for the CEO of ANET that helped bring the stock up. Thoughts on the chart of $CRM? I was wishing I had bought some but didn't after the big pop up yesterday. Wondering if I am too late?
  • issues: @woodman $ESPR I added!
  • spmeyers: @woodman $ESPR waiting for more volume to confirm

  • woodman: @spmeyers $ESPR - BBs are wide. It could take a while to do anything decent.
  • issues: $ESPR has sustained quite a drop over the past 3 days. I am still holding & placed a stop at $50.90. While $EXAS is at the 50 day, this may be a good (low risk) buy point.
  • bRobert: @issues $ESPR $EXAS IWM . smacked around. (bouncing now off support) . Sector weak in short term. But agree with you. Weekly charts intact.
  • issues: @bRobert $EXAS Excellent points to ponder. But Rob what do you think about $ESPR?
