I'll admit that I don't understand medicinal chemistry or pharmaceutical research & development. I bought shares in this company because the industry seems very interesting and this company seems the biggest of its' peers.
This message board was rather interesting when the news was bad for the company. Now that the news is good, there's no discussion. There used to be subpar poetry by employees! Now there's only advertising of financial newsletters.
Perhaps Albany Molecular is an undiscovered gem on the verge of being an international pharma R&D conglomerate.
I agree. I have more posters on my ignore list than people that actually contribute to this board. I was very happy to see that this company is finally beginning to deliver on the promises made in the early days of pre and post IPO. I think that there might have been some distractions along the way that impeded progress but I am optimistic that the focus is returning and AMRI will live up to expectations, albeit later than expected. Good luck to all.
I disagree with some of your comments. Clearly as today�s news about the completion of the purchase of an additional two API manufacturing plants indicates the closure of Dr. D�Ambra�s initial vision for his company. Indian, China and Eastern Europe are double digit growth areas for both production and consumption of pharmaceuticals. Clearly this has always been Dr. D�Ambra�s vision and Wall Street is just waking up! The distractions you imply were rapid changes in the market place which Dr. D�Ambra spotted quickly and responded to. Now we have a new global pharmaceutical company that with 800 employees produces more potential compounds than 5,000 research chemists at Pfizer�s Groton facility! Look at today�s news with Dr. Raje heading up AMRI India. I believe that as well as being an excellent scientist, Dr. Raje will raise the bar � he has an expectation that chemists should strive for 100 reactions per week. With leadership like this and the AMRI culture, AMRI global could be the largest Pharmaceutical company in 15 to 20 years.
