I got this "tip" from a pilot, I know already a loaded question.  Anyone tradetobefree.com ??  He says he makes up to $1000 a day.  I believe him, but just throwing it out there.

A system so good they have to charge a monthly fee! And $.69 is "up to $1000"/day.

Andrew Left is known as a self-promoting douchenozzle but he's not always wrong. It's very hard to see a scenario where NVDA justifies its valuation but there is a lot of blind credulity and enthusiasm for any tech company with a growth story these days. Makes shorting brutal.

Right now Titan is trading at .38/share with tremendous upside potential.  Intuitive was trading at less than $10 at one point and is now over $700. 

Definitely worth checking out.  

Trading at .11 today.

They are still on track with their proposed timeline from earlier this year.  Their last shelf offering should fund them through the first quarter of 2018 and some big milestones will be reached along the way.  Price is down due to fear and nothing else.

I'm all about buying stock when it's on sale (undervalued).  Glad to hear you're taking the long view.  Good luck.

I bought in at .37/share and then cashed out at .29/share because I couldn't pass up RAD (Rite Aid).  My money is tied up in RAD right now but within 2 weeks I should be able to cash out from them and then yes, I will be re-investing in Titan.

Merger-arb has been a very dangerous strategy in the last 18 months. If the stock is trading over 130% wide a week before the deal is closing you have to think there is a reason for that. I hope you weren't holding out for the $7.

"Walgreens Boots Alliance abandoned its deal to acquire rival drugstore chain Rite Aid and will instead buy nearly half of its target's stores after U.S. regulators raised anti-trust concerns about the original plan."

As of 1019E, RAD is down 23.28% since yesterday's close.

Perfect opportunity to cash out with a 26% drop today.

I bought it because, merger or not, the price has to go back up.  They were trading above $6 for the last 3 years.  With the merger it would of gone back up by July 7.  But now they are selling half their operation for 5.1 Billion in cash plus getting a 325 Million termination fee which puts them in a great position in terms of their balance sheets and ER's.  I think the public just lost faith in the management and think they will squander this new opportunity and they are right to think that since their handling of the merger was a debacle.  This same team was doing great for years so it should rebound but opportunity costs are going to add up until they start putting out good ER's.

Anyone going long on Illinois Muni Bonds?

I would wait on this. When Illinois gets downgraded to junk because they can't pass a budget you will see forced selling by large institutions who's investment mandates won't let them own junk debt. Even after that this is going to take years to sort out in court so there's no rush to get involved. I know the Puerto Rico situation a lot better than IL so I'm not sure exactly what kinds of debt has been issued there but if you can find bonds with any sort of special revenue pledge those will have a better legal claim. Look for bonds backed by sales tax or infrastructure. They already sold the toll road but one of the airports might have bonds paid by airport fees and taxes. Your biggest problem is the massive sucking black hole of completely unfunded pension liabilities in a state where the court has already ruled pension claims are non-negotiable. Remember the government and unions negotiated and agreed to change the pension a few years back and some retiree sued and the court agreed that even the union couldn't negotiate a decrease in their own benefits.

What about it made you laugh? The fiscal situation in Puerto Rico is similar with billions of muni debt which is currently impossible to pay. We've spent a couple hundred hours researching Puerto Rico and the various issuers, legal claims and priorities so i have a much better understanding of that than I do of the Illinois debt.

I certainly wasn't laughing at your analysis.  The Schadenfreude is another thing 

I grew up in Illinois.  The Daleys, Madigans, Vrdolyak, Braun.  Blajogevich and Obama were outliers on the same bell curve of players.

Illinois is reaping what has been sown over the decades.  Racing toward pairity with its sister city Detroit.  That Puerto Rico is in a much better situation is not surprising at all.  At leas they have a thriving tourism industry to milk.  That's not going away anytime soon.
