Stock futures surge 700 points on encouraging results on treatment drug from Gilead science

Might be good news and it seems we are at least starting to round the corner...new cases seemed to have peaked and reopenings might begin on May 1.

That said, I donít see why the Dow should be anywhere above 23,500 (about 20% below peak) until this is clearly behind us. 20,000 seems more like it. 20% isnít even a big drop and we were probably due for a correction anyway
Itís all about making that GTA

There are so many coronavirus threads, I can't remember which one, but I posted weeks ago that my ID friend, based in Vegas, was only using Remdesivir out of all the options. But he thinks the best option will be the convalescent serum.... the antibodies from recovering people.
I hope Remdesivir does really help.... a pill is way simpler....

In some articles, it's being said that we gave China Remdesivir as a charitable act. And the Chinese communists got a patent on it.
'Emergencies' have always been the pretext on which the safeguards of individual liberty have been eroded.

From what I am reading the convalescent method is beholden to antibodies and therefore restricted in quantity

In the end though I hope Remdesvir works. I have no financial interest in Leronlimab from my other thread.

My "interest" is solely in having treatment that eliminates the high mortality rate

Because that is the real key to getting us back open

Doing my own research and this news sounds a bit premature.

The news was a leak from an uncontrolled testing.

Nearly every patient got better although.

But there was no control test.

We are still awaiting full testing data.

I hope this is great news but if a company was going to do a pump and dump it sure worked today

The most profitable revenue streams in Vegas were shows and nightclubs.
Does anyone think they will open soon?



In most casinos the most profitable revenue streams are slots. Nothing else is even close.

Hope onenickelmiracle didnít sell his holdings.


Even worse, shorted my first stock today and it was it. Hari Kari time. Net gain for me, I was the fool no matter what on this one. I'd been buying and selling the stock, bad timing to get frisky, just when I became impatient and thought to start playing the swings, I get burned. It'll be ok, I don't need home runs, just need something more than nothing. I'll gain overall, it'll be fine. That's the shit, I read all the artitcles, and thought most of the criticism was weak, but wound up becoming a non-believer for just a day, and that day counted. Didn't think anything like this would happen for a few weeks. It hurts, but doesn't hurt that bad. It's more prideful than anything. Blows, I sold MSFT, and it was at a top at the time, second I sold it, it fell $3 instantly, and I was like cool , saved $150. Now every stock is blowing up. What to do, what to do, cover now or wait for GILD to fall some. The articles will say, they did it, but for no payoff, but how high will the stock rise before then? In the mean time, I'm waiting for it to fall, I can be in anything else and ride a rally for some time. GILD will never deserve to be very high because of remdesivir, unless COVID becomes epidemic we never get rid of like the flu, but they're under pressure to not make profit. I don't understand how they can do this after spending maybe 500 million on it. They're not a charity.

We still have a long way out on our hands barring unforeseen miracles. On paper, I still came out a big winner overall, it's not as good as if I just stayed put 100 times though. This is going to be the embarrassing part of the what I did during lockdown story. How it ends depends on what sticks. C'est le vie. I think I might just cover it, it'll probably bust up as soon as the market opens, tough call. Thinking after a few hours, it starts coming under $89 where it is now, but I'm not sure. Could be $100 at close today. Could be $100 at open, nobody knows. There are a lot of shorts on the stock and a lot of people already buying, will they want to capture a gain which won't stick? IDK. Talk about uncertainty and a dilemma for me. I can say EF my luck, but I'm usually on the good side of luck. I should probably be dead if not for luck. Crap maybe I'll cover and buy GILD. I'm not sure I even can, if I decide to buy I might be stuck, I think I'm banned from day trading where I have the money shorted.

NYS has officially extended shutdown thru May 15th.

They have been coordinating closely with NJ and Connecticut so I don't expect any casinos in this region open before then

Which is why Vegas is dedicating so much casino space to clubs, I suppose. I'm sure it matters where you are. An Indian casino in the middle of nowhere might not generate much from nitelife, but I'm talking about the Strip.
