I never understood why he was put above Dr Lanza in the first place, because Dr Lanza is the Lebron James of biotech, and Ted is just your typical bean counter. Sorry, Ted, but after seeing your presentations at a stem cell conference earlier this year, I became nauseated, it was so bad that I thought it was all over for ACT.
Elk, I think if they posted a picture of Gary, you'd be in seventh heaven once more. But I am afraid that will never happen, so you'll just wait until you get home each day, to look look at his picture hanging on your living room wall.
You're right about this on, nobeach. I'm starting to get worried. Wotton's supposed to be there and the website is not even updated. How do we know he's really there.....and if he is then he should be on top of this so very crucial issue.
On top of that, as you indicate, it is doubly dangerous because keep is not on the job either. He should be all over this or be trying to bring Gary or Ted back or getting Langer or Lanza running the show. Can ACT survive with a CEO who can't get the oh so crucial website updated? How soon should we think about selling if keep does nothing about this....2pm....3pm? I'm not sure I can wait that long if keep doesn't do something soon!!!
Sentiment: Strong Buy
Ted Myles did an absolutely fine job as interim, given the circumstances. He was thrown into the position with little to no experience but he managed to clean up so many messes.
I do look very forward to what Wotton will do, and hope that his decisions reflect the best interest of current shareholders.
In big pharma the bean counters make WAY more than researchers. If things work out both will be very rich men. I'm sure you care more about this than either of these guys. I see Lanza leading a lab but not a company. Different skill set.
Keep, ya think they'll do it at midnight or maybe at the opening bell on WS? How big a pop are you expecting from this org chart update? Since you apparently have access to after market trading I'll bet you'll loading up. Do you think it makes a difference if they use a color or b&w photo? Exciting.
Keep... it is clearly obvious that you do not understand the linkage between positions/careers and skill sets. A researcher in the medical sciences is different than a financial or marketing executive. i'm not going to banter and convince you of this. To satisfy your curiosity though: the next time you need medical care go to the best lawyer in your city; the next time you need legal representation hire the best cardiac surgeon. Let us know how it all turns out.
Calling Ted a bean counter shows your ignorance of the finance job and what it takes to fund a company.
Putting all of your hope in Wotton, shows your ignornce on what it takes to make a succesful company - it's a team and there are many contributors at ACT beyon your beloved Dr Lanza.
Therese, don't tell me the Message Board IDIOT "Keep_Investing" is bad mouthing Ted for the additional role he took on after Gary left? How long will it be before he starts bad mouthing Dr. Wotton? I'll give it to Wednesday and when there is no news Keep's wailing will begin, What a Dweeb!
I'm not the sharpest stick in the woods but this keep_investing character acts like he's more than a little touched if you ask me. I've been reading about this Lanza feller and it don't seem very bright to take your star player out of the game to give him the head coaching job. Maybe keep_investing don't understand the game because he was the waterboy and momma wouldn't let him play the foosball.
