No time to research this weekend, so will take a wild shot in the dark and hope OPK will get lucky for the week. Probably end up near the basement, in not worse. Oh well, one never knows. So. OPK ([ong).
architecto25, we've run the contest on several occasions with only five. We've never had fewer than five at this point. I'd rather run the contest every week regardless of the number of participants as long as there is interest in the community to continue. However, if we come to some consensus of what should constitute a minimum number then I will add the to the rules for future weeks.
Clarkrl, it certainly is nice of you to take whatever time is required to run the contest. It provides a little fun each week and a challenge to try and pick a possible winner (long or short, as it may be). You deserve the plaudits for your time devoted to it. Thanks for your efforts each week.
What's going on with OPK? No news. Somebody must know some favorable news may soon develop. Had no idea on the move. Just a very lucky pick (so far this week). A long shot at best at the track Since it's a long term position in my port, feel good.
Architecto, I have followed OPK about 3 years, traded it several times in 15/16 for some decent profits. But this year the stock "fell out of bed" the last few days before start of the new year. Believe OPK has a lot of LONG TERM potential. I do not know anything about why the stock moved in the last few days (but guessing something is "cooking" on the backburner. Expect it may be some development that may be announced in the next few weeks (maybe). It's a gamble. I have accumulated a decent position in my port since January, avg 7.98. We shall see if I rolled "snake eyes" or not by the end of this yeer. Just remember, I am a gambler when it comes down to stocks. Win or lose $150 per penny rise or fall.
Architecto......OPK not too good this morning. Meager news, not strong enough to hold. This will take time, but that is all I have is time these days, however long it may turn out to be. Any bit of some bad news and the shorts win.
EDIT: Wham, slam.........probably last after today........good "haircut" going on.........Whooooooo!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! It was nice few days, then...KABOOM!!!!!!
Mod, at least you are still beating the BenchMark. And I'm going to hold down the bottom all week it looks like! Bad choice for me this week. I thought they would go a bit higher since they had gotten some contracts recently.
