CELG

Perhaps a bit late on this one, but I think CELG should run to mid $80's. JMO though and check it out yourself. It seems they have some orphan drugs that have a good shot at getting approved in the US.

What do you think Art, is there still room to the upside? I got in at $65 and have been thinking it might be time to sell but I haven't been paying too much attention to it lately.

Glad to hear you got in! I think long term there's probably more, but in this environment, I've actually got to agree with Cramer, take some profits. Originally I said mid-$80's, and I still think that's a target, however, I thought we just might see another pullback to $63 or so first. Pharma stocks always make me nervous. Good luck with it. I don't know if you were acting on my recommendation or your own pick, but I'm a bit curious as to whether or not I'm wasting my time making suggestions here.

No, I bought last November, just weeks before it ran off a cliff (15% in one day) on some good news for a competitor at the same time they got some not-so-great news on Revlemid (sp.) I considered selling then, but I still liked the story and figured it would be back eventually so I decided to own it for a while. But, your interest did give me further reason to believe.

Since then I've been watching the price and been increasingly happy as I saw it go from red to black again, but I didn't really pay that much attention to what's going on with the company.

They are given to strong reactions, and it seems like anything less than a home run piece of news makes them plummet like a stone.

That might be the right call. I've got irons in other fires at the moment and I'm not sure I want to put any time into catching up on what's going on with CELG at the moment - especially when I'm up 15% in monopoly money that I can turn into real money with a click of the mouse. Hogs get slaughtered and all that.

Leo, I could tell you why it tanked when it did, but no one around here wants to hear it and I'm not prone to put it in print.
