Out with Opioids and In with ZynRelef?

this is why Heron Therapeutics (HRTX) is a really big deal, even if it is a couple years behind schedule. I strongly suggest a full position for those who are looking for growth in (HRTX).

Long term market outlook

Kirk Spano March 21

I think this is how I see the broad market. I’ve been thinking about it a while. Since about 2016.

That yellow box is about where a correction will head to someday after a top. The question is does it head to the bottom orange lines. It might.

Just keep whispering in our ears. I won’t like getting unduly caught up in a trip down to that yellow or orange line.

If SPY tops somewhere in low $600s and taxes change tapping down corporate profits and energy gets a bit more expensive and fiscal policy response to Boomer retirement is slow, then, we could get a 1-2 year macro trade to short the market that makes 10x or more. Think that through. Do you know what that means? It jest might mean Kirky can buy the Brewers someday.

Theresa May March 21

Theoretically, just so I can get my head around it and start ruminations, how can a short 1-2 year macro trade look and what does it involve? VIX? Bitcoin? I want to say buying puts, but that seems contrary to what you do? Buy energy (we’re already doing that with (AMTX). Curious… Again, just a theoretical discussion here for learning purposes.

So, think about the Financial Crisis. Market peaked in Q4 2007, then started drifting down in 2008, til it fell off a cliff and finally bottomed in March 2009. I think we can see a similar thing in 2026-8, or maybe a bit later. The first play would be selling almost everything and finding safer assets and cash, aka, preservation. Probably can buy TLT on idea they lower rates to close to zero again for a while to get through Boomer retirement funding crisis.

The second play would be buying puts on SPY and select stocks and/or sectors. Those will be real time trades we want to try to be within 4-6 months on. It won’t be easy. And, it might require rolling positions once or twice versus throwing up hands and saying I quit just before being right. It’s a multimillionaire making trade if it happens

“According to the determinations made by the USCIS, the Regional Center presented evidence asserting that 245 qualified investors will invest $200 million in EB-5 capital into Advanced Bioenergy II, the new commercial enterprise (NCE).”

What is the EB-5 Visa? The EB-5 Immigrant Investor visa program provides a path for foreign nationals to achieve permanent residence (a green card) in the United States. The program requires a minimum investment of $800,000 to qualify. CMB Regional Centers provides investment opportunities designed to meet the requirements of the EB-5 program. –American Immigration Lawyers Association

LesRob March 21

Eight investors have already invested $500,000 per investor (a total of $4.0 million) and 245 additional future investors have now been approved at $800,000 per investor (for an additional $196.0 million) for a total of $200 million under the EB-5 program.
