  • Chevy Malibu 2008

    Maybe it's because of the Iowa caucus' taking place Wednesday night. Maybe it's because at the start of a new year, it's a good time to make predictions.

Whatever the reason, I think today is the day to ask YOU which automaker has the most to show, prove, gain, lose in 2008?

    So, it didn't take long after my Genentech blog entry got posted yesterday for me to receive an email and a voicemail from a Genentech spokesperson requesting a "clarification" on my take regarding the latest chapter in the Avastin vs. Lucentis brouhaha. I think I'm being spun.

    Merry Christmas! The ECB's decision to inject half a trillion (trillion!) into the global marketplace (technically, they are providing what is essentially unlimited loans at a fixed fate for the next couple weeks) is definitely giving equities a shot in the arm this morning.
