Hello FP and thanks to those who got the board started.

I suppose we should have some concern since you know how docs are with investing. Nice to see a few that actually take the time to do so.

I hold 1 Biotech that meets some of the criterian you outlined. It actually makes a profit (just started this year) has a drug (Abelcet) and a good pipeline. Might be a good time to buy in since it just got killed after its FDA application just got shot down for Evacet (a lipid adriamycin).

You can go to the lipo board and read all about it. Has cash on board, with the recent fall rumors of a take over are rampant. It is though one of the few biotechs making money with a good pipeline.

The company makes products which are lipid formulations and therefore have less toxic effects. With Abelcet less nephotoxicity and Evacet (when it is released) appears to have less cardiotoxicity. It sure seems to have lots of potential but is a long term thing not a short term play.

Interesting to see all of you into the techs. Note that several have JDSU which I am looking at and just waiting for an entry point. I will try to get in through OCLI though (merger announced) I think. Some others you might be interested in ATHM (the cable access for the internet). Currently under fire but plenty of potential. Lots of discussion on the ATHM board which you might enjoy.

Nice to have the board, look forward to contributing. (esp if we can talk about Diana Krall sometime what a voice)
