    Wish BlackBerry did something like this for their shareholders. Especially since they are starting to sell devices online now.

    OT - Hey Morgan

    I jumped onto XOMA and i know they have some important catalyst events coming up, 1 being in October. Given that there's only 2 days left in Oct, what are the chances any news will be out? If not what implications will that have on the stock? Just wanted to get your thoughts on this one and a chart if possible. Thanks!
    Hi jmehta22!!

    I'll keep this brief because this is a BBRY thread, XOMA is actually discounting the fact that we haven't seen any news that other companies have to report. Biotech, as a group, have seen a great deal of profit-taking this month and all of them are weak right now. That sector has rallied hard all year and most have profits in front of them. So now is a good time to go shopping for Biotechs. I was away yesterday and missed the drop in XOMA so today is my day to buy that one.

    Here are the charts:

    The BBRY Café.  [Formerly: I support BBRY and I buy shares]-xoma-chart-oct-30-2013.png

    As you can see, the stock has been making higher lows, basing out, moving sideways and rallying again. It is at that $ 4.40/shr level which is my entry point. So today I'll be a buyer of 50% of the shares I'll eventually own. In the next chart you can more clearly see the uptrend line and better understand how the stock needs to find support in here:

    The BBRY Café.  [Formerly: I support BBRY and I buy shares]-xoma-chart-oct-30a-2013.png

    It looks like the $ 4.30/shr area must hold in here and that's requires the general market to hold as well. News might not come until December so you need to plan on been disappointed until then. I'll stick to my plan of buying the stock on weakness and on it's uptrend line and I only purchase 1/2 of what I plan on owning. All of my purchases are for 6 months minimum unless something big happens in the near-term. Let's see how it does today.

    EDIT: Looks as though the news on the two XOMA Phase II studies came out and they are hosting a Webcast on favourable results, good luck!! I highlighted your question to make sure I answered it and missed the release. LOL

    As for BBRY, what an exciting time, stunning how the news is turning positive as the media are forced to say something nice about it now.

    So what is your prediction for the events on Monday?
    A strong buy or a very strong buy? And TA for BlackBerry?

    Perfect - just what I was looking for. Thanks Morgan appreciate your help! I actually got in on the dip yesterday and just after close XOMA reported positive results! Shares are up 8% in pre-market. Price targets have also been raised with buy ratings!

    Xoma (XOMA) is getting a lift in early trading from the announcement of what it calls "very encouraging" Phase 2 results for gevokizumab.The company says that after three months, erosive osteoarthritis patients taking the treatment "demonstrated a 23% reduction from baseline in the composite AUSCAN score compared to a 14% reduction in placebo arm patients."After six months, XOMA "will determine the requirements for a potential Phase 3 program based on advisory and regulatory input."

    What I don't want to see is the company go private. If it has to go private, please do this at Book Value. Prem needs to step up here and make a firm bid, if he can do that, he should start buying additional shares to compliment the formal offer to purchase. And so we would pop to $ 9.00/shr on that news. I don't want him to get BBRY for $ 9.00/shr, I think it is worth its BV and could actually do very well with a partnership. Look for the stock to trade at its 3-ema until we get some news, hopefully someone else makes an offer to take the company out at much higher levels. When the FB news came out, it looked like we would finally close above the 20-ema, it didn't happen and by the end of the day all of the gains were gone and we were back under the 20-ema telling you the stock is being held back here.

    For me, I have everything I could want for this company, BBM-X, cloud security, BES10.1, Z30, BB 10.2, the only thing missing in this puzzle is a partnership and/or a new leader. This is going to be exciting.

    Ha! HA! HA! I try to answer every question that comes my way so I held yours back on my screen until I could make some charts up. Because of that, I missed the news release entirely!! LOL

    Well, you got some great news there, Phase II is the tough one because you have spent a pile of money on that study. They have great results on both studies. I haven't ruled out buying shares here but I do wish I had stayed home yesterday and got my block of the stock, darn it all. GL

    Funny how the picture they use of Merkel here is the one of her smiling. Did we ever find out if the one pic of her frowning holding the z10 was actually photoshopped? The frowning pic is the one that is used by the media constantly, while this is the 2nd time I've this smiling one of her. So messed up.
    I believe I successfully refuted the idea it was shopped, back when those were first seen. See http://forums.crackberry.com/bbry-f3...ml#post8076658 and especially http://forums.crackberry.com/bbry-f3...ml#post8077969

    Well, I was on my way to the store to buy some XOMA and I had a look at the HALO chart and bought a boat load of it instead! LOL

    There is something about HALO that makes me want to own a ton of it. We need BBRY to pop hard here on some MSFT/Samsung news so that I can fulfill that wish!

    Let's say you had $1,500 kicking around. Would you buy BBRY options, more HALO or something else. Speculative money and I already have 2500 worth of HALO bought at 9.15 or so.....

    I can't tell you what's best for you, let's make that clear! I own a large block of BlackBerry, I won't buy any more of that one unless they form a partnership that I like. Now HALO is a different situation, I own a block of that one now, I would, at the very least double the position if I knew that BlackBerry was doing something worthwhile. So for me, they are connected, I want more of HALO but I'm not willing to part with any BBRY to buy more, nor do I want to sink more into another monster stock right now. I don't buy Calls as a rule, I write plenty of them so I can't help you out there. I see HALO going much higher from here in the months ahead. I'm sure that didn't help you decide at all!

    To summarize, I'm buying HALO on every dip and holding BBRY to see what Prem/Mike do with their position.

    based on the stock trading, it seems PW could not find financing and there is not a single offer yet.

    But it maybe not a bad thing for long. The co better sells in pieces to get maximum value for shareholders.

    This could drag to 2 more months.

    for starters Prem has publicly stated he will have the financing, so kinda hard to dismiss that just based on the stock price volatility. in fact Prem has plenty of incentive to wait till the last moment to come through with his bid. it is called way more break fee and that is no chicken feed as a percentage of the shares he holds now. so, collecting the highest possible break fee is essential to Prem.

    More baseless comments. Any proof as to PW's position? He has until the 4th. What is his incentive to move any sooner?

    Clearly Prem is delusional (as are we all), so moving sooner would make total sense... or something like that. I don't know... I lack the fine grasp of logic which some posters here appear to have. ;-)

    If you want to ask me a question, then stop talking about clueless.

    I am not 100% sure if PW has gotten financing or not, I said from what I read, amico said they and some other funds are not joining PW's group publicly, also, based on the stock trading, the market just says so, and that matters the most.
