Hi everyone,

Thanks to SK for the invite over from the Google boards, I really like the tone here.

Been managing my ROTH IRA on TD Ameritrade now for about 3 years, I got lucky with POT about 3 splits ago and rode it both ways. Now I'm focusing on biotechs, coal, financials, and insurance.

On Google I was discussing the value of some of the various tools out there for identifying biotechs with upcoming PDUFA dates and was asked by one of your moderators to share what I learned from the RevereData report I purchased. Here is a quick summary of the small, publicly traded companies with projected dates near-term:

Ticker Date 1st or 2nd drug?
HEB 5/25 YES
UTHR 5/29 YES
ABIO 5/29 YES
VPHM 6/03 NO
BDSI 6/12 YES
EURX 6/23 YES
PPDI 6/26 YES
ACUR 6/30 YES
SPPI 7/2 NO
TSPT 7/3 YES
WPI 7/13 NO
DDSS 7/17 YES
TKPHF 7/24 NO
UTHR 7/30 YES
SVNT 7/30 YES
MEDX 7/30 YES
ADLS 7/31 YES

There are more companies than those I listed, but I thinned it down to include just small caps, first or second timers, or drugs that have little or no competitor. So no Glaxo, Roche, King, Novartis, etc, even though they are on the list too.

Anyway, sorry for the long introduction, hope you guys find this stuff useful. Good luck to everyone!

Oh yeah, full disclosure, I'm currently long on HEB, ACUS, and GNTA.

Gary

Hi Gary,

I am new here too as of last night. I am holding some HEB as well, and after the recent news, I am feeling a whole lot better about it. In fact, I have already put in an order to buy a little more Tuesday morning. I put a low limit order which I may adjust slightly depending on how the price moves. I am feeling a lot more confident with it now. I am glad I didn't sell my position. But Friday was a spooky day for me! I'm glad that's done, and we can move on from here. Welcome aboard Gary!

I like the idea of putting a limit order in for some Tuesday morning action on HEB, based on the past couple weeks there should be enough movement to get in and back out for a little extra lunch money. The news about a possible secondary use as a flu vaccine will only help the volume.

Hey Gary ... good to have another "local" on board.

We've got a pretty good group of Washington guys in here ... we just need to get them to start posting!

Glad you joined us.

Hi Gary, I'm another import from the Google HEB crop, and similarly I like the tone here - the signal to noise ratio on the Google boards is terrible!

Good luck Tuesday,

Cheers, Spinner
