This thing is down $1.50 since i got in. You shorts sound as if it is on it's deathbed. We shall see soon enough. I just wouldn't get too excited just yet if I were you guys. I have actually spent the past few days getting hammered in Boston and haven't had time to research your life stories.
Maybe this article has an unbiased opinion...
basically if this guy is right, then athena is basically priced where it should be - in the low 20's... unless there is a hiccup, or a buyout.
Long or short a profit is a profit from this stock. Just so happens this stock is a prime short target, face it.
If you have something about management, then share it, it won't sway my current position(s) either way. You are sounding more and more like an insider....too much emotion about this co from you!!!
Why would insiders or VCs sell in the mass now if they pulled back at 31 or 32 in the secondary??? Did anyone tell you this on your phone calls or when you where on the street or getting your 411?
If you are long on this stock you are fine, lock up was expected, if you are short like you then you are praying for a price target below 20. That would assume there is zero appetite for a company expecting to grow at 30+ % over the next 5 years with a unique and compelling service
If you have one negative thing to say about how this company is run or managed than say it. If you don’t like the price or how the street values it then that is what it is. To say this is a bad or ill run company is just plain incorrect.

1) I guess that $1.50 loss is now closer to $3.00
2) No, this stock isn't on its deathbed, just curious why someone like you would buy a company selling at a gazillion times earnings when there are MANY OTHER good companies selling at reasonable multiples (JNPR, CSCO, PWRD, GIGM, STAR, etc...etc..).
3) If you keep treating the market like Vegas, you are going to lose your shirt. Your other "investments" are tanking as well.
4) As far as ATHN goes...looks like today may be a short term bottom. That doesn't mean you should keep your money in this stock. It is a physician management group software stock. This is NOT a stock with a huge long term story.
everytime I've listened to advice on these yahoo boards, I get into trouble.
Best thing to do is look at the yahoo summary for yourself and come to your own conclusions. In other words, do your own research.
Great rally today. Given the MDRX and Misys news I think folks are now increasingly bullish on ATHN given their model as it relates to these two companies that IMO will be bogged down in this transaction for some time and may neglect their client base.
ATHN has a great and growing hold on the PM market and their EMR looks to be getting better. I see this going back to 30ish - we may take a hit post lock up but that is what it is.
There is nothing not to like about this company. Anyone saying otherwise is one: a short or general basher or two: knows zero about this sector.
