    Allergan Reports Third Quarter 2012 Operating Results

    I actually agree with management's call on the LapBand. It is a very profitable business but it is not fitting into the AGN's long term strategy. It's a great product, and a good and profitable business but it is perhaps AGN's only product that is most sensitive to, and most affected by the economic cycle.

    The implant side of the business is extremely healthy and should be kept. This implant business is an expanding -- global -- business, and AGN is a major player in this market. Why would you abandon a lucrative and expanding market? AGN is position to become the global leader -- if it isn't already -- especially with the recent development with the primo positioning in the Japan implant market.
    This is precisely the kind of product and position that AGN loves, and will make mammary implants a key part of the aesthetic mix for the long haul.
    Dude, you need to do some more homework, or perhaps you were not actively listening to yesterday's conf. call.
