  • TunaHelper: @debeers Another ticker you may want to consider in women's health is $MYGN. Could be coming out of a squeeze (though BBs aren't necessarily within the 6% threshold, they are pretty tight). Nice short interest. Just came out with info on their breast cancer recurrence prediction/test.
  • TunaHelper: @TunaHelper $MYGN It's also crossed through the 3SD BB today.
  • debeers: $HOLX/$MYGN-found superior to Oncotype DX. Again, I think that Women's Health, a lynchpin of the promised agenda will be fine. I just choose to play it with a less sensitive focus: hence $HOLX

  • woodman: @debeers $HOLX $MYGN I just don't believe for a moment that women's health will be a top agenda item for this Administration regardless of what may or may not have been said. So many other things they want to do.
  • Aragorn: @arrow $HOLX $MYGN no was just going to delete it
  • greenpatrol: @Aragorn $HOLX $MYGN That is certainly a stretch to believe there will be an emphasis on that. I like the look of the chart of $HOLX though, so I am long.
  • Aragorn: @greenpatrol $HOLX $MYGN 41.50 there is a triangle line I have so that is the first target I have yes I agree on both counts
  • debeers: @Aragorn $HOLX $MYGN -Just because you deleted, doesn't mean it wasn't read
  • Aragorn: @debeers $HOLX $MYGN So I deleted it not because of you but because of the appropriateness of the venue. If you really think what you wrote is real good for you. I do not. The chart is another story that works, and I am not looking to make a political statement here but you seem to have no issue with that

  • Aragorn: $MYGN $CERS here are 2 ideas . MYGN breaking out of a flag. CERS moving up the 8ema setting up for a measured move up
  • DCorion: @Aragorn $MYGN $CERS I appreciate your many ideas. Also been watching $ABC. Looks to be setting up above the 50 day and trying poke thru the 200 day and in VS.
  • Aragorn: @DCorion $MYGN $CERS $ABC I was surprised when this broke below the 50 at the 112 area. I was very positive that this would hold up and even posted about that when someone asked about the stock. I felt the same about $MCK. ABC is rebounding more than MCK. Yes ABC looks good lets see in 5 bucks what happens at the 200 but we have positive MACD and BOP a possible tell on future moves has been positive showing large orders on the buy side 5 dollars ago so maybe institutions are getting behind this. I have no position and thanks for sharing with the forum.
  • ogas: @Aragorn $MYGN $CERS How are you calculating your measured move?

  • issues: $GLOG I'm underwater, glog glog... It's a LT hold but I hate to see a profit go to a loss. I'm holding on. I can't get motivated to buy. I like the turnaroudn with $MYGN. I would like to buy more $MTDR but am hesitating. Anyone else in the "brain freeze" department?
  • issues: $MYGN Does anybody (Tricia?) still like $MYGN? I even and thinking of putting i a stop. Any idea where?
  • issues: @issues Thank you issues for your question. $MYGN is still good but "declining good," which isn't good. So I would recommend putting your stop in at $31.89. Thank you for your input. GL
  • Tricia: $BMY - happy I added this am - made $.80 per share. Day Trades included $SYN, $RNN, &$TGXT .. Tight reins on LT positions .. and more than half cash ... ASCO plays, $BMY, $CLVS, $GILD, $ACAD, $STEM, $MYGN, $RHHBY,and $CLDX. - some are swing trades for ASCO. (Long in BMY, GILD, CLVS, RHHBY,ENTA, and MYGN. Watching Jazz, TSRO, and CLDX Have a great evening
  • issues: @Tricia Is $MYGN a LT or trade? We currently hold a small number of shares. Why do you like it? I noticed it had a declining eps qt/at .68 .66 .60 .44. It's got good IBD ratings. I was trying to decide whether or not to add.
  • Tricia: $MYGN - has 11 diagnostic tests for ASCO .. in sddition, it boughtCrescendo Bioscience in Feb for $270 million for a proprietary test for patients with rheumatoid arthritis. It’s the first-ever quantifiable way of measuring the molecular activity of this common inflammatory disease. It’s a radical new idea in a world where physicians—even in 2014!—basically just squeeze knuckle joints, ask patients how much it hurts, and then make a subjective judgment on what to do next. This test has the potential to tell a Rhuematologist when a cheap generic drug is holding the disease in check at the molecular level, or when a $20,000 a year biotech drug isn’t getting the job done. It took Crescendo three years on the market before it could get Medicare reimbursement at $575 per test. But once approved, MYGN scooped it up.
  • issues: $MTDR beat earnings by 20% but it's down 7%. $MYGN beat by 30% yet it's down 10%. Go figure. Anyway I hold both of these and was thinking of adding to $MYGN... but it's probably better to wait until I see green candles, right? This may be a good time to add to $MTDR ??
  • issues: @NapoleonSolo Hey now not so defensive. Sure I appreciate your advice that's why I wrote that $MTDR is not a biotech, to be sure you gave me the right advice. I would say that all of us here on SMM are "learners" otherwise why be part of this educational mentoring, right? Do you think $GILD & $MYGN are biotechs? If I didn't want advice I wouldn't write in. Another loser I have is $SFUN. I have many winners but I cut the losers and let the winners ride. I have $BEAV and Dan said to sell it. So I'm thinking of putting in a stop, where would you suggest?
  • Aragorn: @Dan the IBD 50 Bios and devices is a good place to review some of them and they are as follows - $ACT ANIK $ALXN VRX $JAZZ SLXP $BIIB WX $GMED GRFS $MYGN . Some of these are still working and holding up. $ANIK looks interesting symmetrical Triangle but getting tight it needs to do something soon or it will fall and I like that it is holding the 8ema but I want your thoughts so no more Jay Analysis. Also the ones not working where you think we might get support. IBD50's are a good place to always start some research as these are usually trending and MOMO stocks to begin with. Thanks

  • Junior: $MYGN - CallaLilly - any expectations on their earnings? They report after the bell. Thanks, Junior
  • CallaLilly: $MYGN - I know some traders are doing a straddle (and I don't know what that is). Barron's sort of took it down last earnings, saying the stock was expensive at 16 times 2010 earnings and it sold off. It was about 26. then. I think it could move but I don't like buying into earnings. Just sort of limp from today's biotech actions in $TRGT - great speech by CEO and look at the stock. Just hard to buy right with these things but so good when it's right. HGSI nice, $DNDN nice. Advil time, lol.
  • Junior: $MYGN - callalilly, I sold 3/4 of my position during the 1st hour today, they are reporting earnings tonight. Do you have an opinion on these guys? Thanks!
  • TMB: $MYGN - Junior - This is not callalilly but if you look at the charts the last time $MYGN reported was at the close of May 4th. The stock tanked on the open and then it took a few weeks to recover only to drop again. I had sold deep in the money covered calls going into the earnings announcement so I was protected and was able to buy them back cheap BUT I got lucky .. after this episode I vowed never to carry a trade thru earnings!! Too much like betting on red. Be carful is my advice ... it can go either way on you.
  • CallaLilly: $MYGN - I don't personally own it or follow it. One of the resources I value the most, paid subscription, had this to say on July 2nd and I can see it's at about the same place when a lot of stocks got carried up just because of the trend (and I don't know the short interest or if the dullness of its outlook is already baked in and anything that looks mediocre even could carry it up): Barrons online trashed $MYGN last night saying that the recent revenue miss might be a symptom of rough going ahead as it wont be easy to get doctors to order their diagnostic tests during a recession. They also call the stock expensive at 16 times 2010 earnings. (Remember, this was at July 2nd).

  • marior69: Team if anyone is thinking about playing the drop in oil through the refiners, $SUN is looking to be a very nice setup. It looks to have based on a higher low towards the end of July, It broke through the 50 ma on strong volume, then pulled back to the 50 ma on declining volume, and bounced today on decent volume. RSI, Stochastics, A/D Line are all turning up within a bullish area, and MACD's are maintaining a slightly bullish overbought reading.

  • drtony: $MYGN breaking out today. i was holding this for a while and took profits on the way up, then held my breath as it lost steam. breaking out of a symmetrical triangle and all indicators are turning. RSI has been slowly bouncing off 50 for a few days now. selling off some into strength as the earnings call is NOV. 1 and i don't intend to hold. hoping the breakout continues so i can sell off the rest of the position prior to earnings.
  • drtony: i tried to find the middle ground between @Craig's thoughts about maybe removing stops and re-evaluating at 10:30, and cutting my losses with very tight stops and going mostly to cash. i set stops instead based on support levels. a lot of stop gunning today, with huge wicks down way below reasonable support, then coming back up. as @Dan said, gaps were horrific but some stocks are stabilizing. got stopped out on a few stocks that i didn't want to lose. good thing i didn't remove stops and look at the opening tape or i would have lost my breakfast. as it turns out, a couple of them recovered above my stops (oh, well) and some of them continue to dive. added more to $MYGN and got back into $NM and JASO. picked up some RADS which shows a nice chart with an ascending triangle.

  • drtony: @Craigy...thanks..excellent thinking there and very concisely and clearly conveyed (hey, i think that's alliteration! the english major in me). funny you should talk about upper BB bands. i had just sold some partial positions that were beginning to be a bit extended, and i noticed that $MYGN had pierced the upper band. i was thinking of selling a bit of it before, and good thing i didn't because that was when it was a bit under 5% up for the day, and i eventually sold it at 7.22%, still holding on to a decent position, but booking gains in anticipation of it retracing a bit. if i'm wrong and it continues up, then i'll simply make less money than i would have if i didn't sell it. if it does retrace, i'll buy it back at a price that makes sense. can't lose this way.
  • drtony: Hi all...finally got a time for a quick check in. anyone trading DRYS? i was up 18% until the last week, now down 12 1/2%, and it's down today. i think it's profit taking because it's had such an incredible run, but i'd appreciate any thoughts. liking the action on $MYGN,and up nicely on that as well. $CCJ finally broke through resistance at 42 in a nice pop today. also long XTO and $DAR, which is making a nice little move. @Mary....you have mail. don't want to get into off topic stuff at 3:12pm. i backblogged the other day and saw your question to Suzie...re: RENT!

The 20 SMA has acted as support recently. I know nothing about the company except that its IBD ratings are pretty poor. It looks like the trend may be weakening a bit so I would put a stop in the mid to high 36s to be safe. I saw you were asking about $SIM too. Here is my $.02. It looks like a solid uptrend to me for the past 2 months. The 20 SMA has been acting as support. If you bought in the mid 13s today good for you. I think it continues higher. Stop goes below 13. This one has really good IBD ratings! Materials have been strong too. I like this one the best.
  • drtony: i'm a chiropractor, @mike. i used to trade $MYGN (Myriad Genetics). it's a biopharmaceutical company. is that considered biotech? i HUGELY echo your sentiments on analysts. as much as #Cramer has lost the glow for me, he did open my eyes to how these guys work, and how they manipulate stocks for their employers' clients. but they can work to our favor also...they downgraded $BWLD and it dropped over 5%...the company is incredible and i decided to go against the herd and pick it up. sold it not long afterward for a 13% profit. thanks, analyst! would've sent the guy a bottle of Cabernet if i knew where he worked. anyway, when it comes to analysts, you've got to navigate carefully. i got lucky.
