    Altria put up some great numbers, everyone else in consumer staples seems to be reeling from currency fluctuation, esp. MCD's.

    Stocks often drop pre FDA announcement. I might pick it up Thursday morning.

    Anyone know what time the FDA typically issues the press release with its decision?

    Uh, wat. I see 560 AH, if I was interested in AAPL I'd pounce on that.

    If they get NCE I might hold because I think they will be a major target, unless they announce some kind of partnership with one of the big boys. I think they already rejected a bid from Pfizer at $22.

    Now if they get FDA approval and the NCE decision is delayed, that's where it gets hairy for me [​IMG].

    Yeah, I'd hold if NCE is announced, but I doubt it will be. I plan on selling after a pop and watching it drift back down to re-enter.

    If anyone can suggest some good ETFs to buy and hold, I would really appreciate it. I have never traded ETFs. Do you favor leveraged variants? Do you try and specifically target industries, commodities, particular emerging markets etc?

    I'm starting up my BB M&A job on Monday, so my restricted list is a mile long. Plus I think trading in general is frowned upon.

    Yea I think that's where I'm at, pending my above post.

    Great avatar btw. Saw it in IMAX last night. I wonder how many SF users would be put out on the ice?

    No idea man, I'm not a Batman fan, I just picked this avatar to troll the CE forum. More into horror and old slasher flicks.
