I only have two trading accounts. One in taxable (with Gilead and Endocyte currently) which is up this year around 4.5% to 5% (have not recalculated). The other account is an IRA that I rolled over from a 401K with $1700 in it in 2000. That account currently has $123,600 in it.

The rest of our money is in Vanguard index funds and SPY.

Just remember your dividends will be unqualified (taxed as ordinary income). It makes no difference to me as our income is so low we don't pay tax either way. Yay retirement.

Hmm, so Gilead is pricing $5B of bonds, which would give them $29B of cash.

What are they planning? Inquiring minds want to know.

Whatever it is I wouldn't mind a big bump for next year as income will be needed to avoid medicaid qualification and it might lessen what I might draw from IRA's otherwise simply for MAGI.

That $5B bond pricing gave some people a buyers itch of something to come all right!

I too sold 500 more at $80.90 (you always seem to get a better price!) but maintaining 1000 shares right now. I am ready to buy more at $78.

Still bummed my Endocyte has not moved up again. I am looking for $3.20 on any news.

I'm holding out selling for $90 or above as that's what my cost is. Maybe next year.

And......another downgrade (still to a PT well above the current price).

Should we buy back our shares here at $79 and change or wait for it to retest the two year low?

The overall market has dropped a few % too. I am unsure what to do right now...paralysis analysis.

I may buy some today though...half of what I want.

Endocyte (ECYT) getting some activity today. Price jumped to $3.24 and volume is 2x average.

Would be great to wake up and give a double take to see $32.40 as the price.

I didn't buy any Gilead today, although I probably should have. I put in a limit order for $78.50 but it never dipped that far.

Endocyte ended the day up 6% or so and volume of 400,000 shares vs average 120,000. There is value in the company that people are seeing (well, that and the fact that they still have more cash on hand than the current market cap).
