Happy New Year!

Get your picks in by open on Jan 2nd 2014 or as soon as you can.

The aim is to nominate 5 stocks that will ALL show gains of a minimum of 30% by Wednesday the 31st of December 2014 so start looking into your Crystal Ball and come out with the 5 winners.

THE BASIS OF THE COMPETITION:
The competition is partly intended for light entertainment. But it is also hoped it will throw up ideas for further research, and possibly investment: ideally, stocks with real potential to make good steady gains, with low downside risk.

It is permissible to nominate stocks that have already been selected by others. However, please try to avoid having a duplicate if possible.


Remember the beginning price posted will be posted from the close on Dec 31st 2013.

Analysis is welcome to explain why your picks may perform as you expect.

however, just saw a form 13 with Sabby healthcare on it... caymen islands. They took a chunk of RNN as well. See both hit a peak and look out below.
Just my own opinion though.
GALE could see a push tomorrow. MNKD went nuts need to look at ICPT, GALT and my pick SIGM back to the $5's.

Nuance Surges 9%: Pre-Announces FYQ1 Rev, EPS Ahead of Consensus

Shares of speech-recognition software vendor Nuance Communications (NUAN) are up $1.31, or almost 9%, at $16.20, after the company this afternoon pre-announced fiscal Q1 revenue and earnings per share ahead of consensus,

Revenue in the three months ended in December is expected to be in a range of $487 million to $491 million, with EPS of 23 cents to 24 cents.

The forecast is higher than the company’s previous forecast for $477 million to $487 million in revenue and 18 cents to 21 cents in EPS.

Analysts had been modeling revenue of $481 million and 20 cents per share.

The pre-announcement came in conjunction with the company’s announcement it has named Symantec (SYMC) veteran Bill Robbins as head of worldwide sales.

Nuance will report full results on February 10th.

Idera Pharmaceuticals Announces Appointment of Julian Baker and Dr. Kelvin Neu to its Board of Directors

Great news...Baker Brothers are top of the food chain in this space and they just claimed 2 board seats days before data is scheduled to be released. If you add up their common and warrants, IDRA is in their top 10 holdings by dollar value...Add the dips, new highs coming in dramatic fashion jmo

Idera Pharmaceuticals Announces Expansion of Pipeline into Two Orphan Autoimmune Diseases
http://finance.yahoo.com/news/idera-pharmaceuticals-announces-expansion-pipeline -113500868.html

Would they be expanding the development of IMO-8400 into other areas and adding 2 Baker Brothers members to the BOD if P2 results were going to be anything short of fantastic?

IDRA...New 52 wk highs last week and pummeled to $4.50's today on Summer Street write up...Clearly they are more in the know than Julian Baker lol...Add this dip jmo

Idera candidate IMO-8400 likely to be failed drug, says Summer Street
Summer Street predicts Idera Pharmaceuticals' IMO-8400, a small-molecule toll-like receptor antagonist being tested as a treatment for psoriasis, will be a failed drug candidate. The firm says Idera is developing a third-generation product, IMO-9200, which indicates the company has low expectations for IMO-8400.

IDRA, bear raid to $3.80's today...Managements response to the SS hit piece will be the PII results, the science will speak for itself. Staying the course here, added more today...

Hey BooDog and TEX,

I haven't been on here since 2008, (my old username was taters 1977 I think). It seems like activity has dropped off a bit. Its a shame, I was completely new to the market and this site really helped me. I remember a user named Morpheus helped me out with getting into SIRI at .18 and FORD at 1.87! I was deployed in Kuwait at the time and had some liquid cash to invest. The market crash helped me out quite a bit as well, but I'd rather be lucky than good anyday.

I was wondering if maybe you would be interested in doing this challenge again for 2016? I though it would be fun to try and get a few ideas for the next year.

Thanks for your help those years back.

Cheers,
Steve

Hey taters77! It has been a while! I haven't been as active here as I would like to be. Now that we're into Feb I'd be a bit late in starting. Certainly quite a bit to choose from with oil/energy and the financial sector. I'll try and get here more often! I see a couple still posting, Happy and Peaser!

Cheers!!
