This thread talks of Elans need to respond due to them setting the end of summer as a deadline and not meeting it. That is not true.
Elan said the "end of summer".
Biogen said "Sept 21st" in a separate context.
Biogen set the stage to fail on, not Elan. If people are selling due to Elan's failed performance, I think they are making a mistake.
<<Frankly, I assumed when JM put a date on the "end of summer" that meant he fully expected to have completed all patient evaluations at least a week prior to today.>>
"Mullen" is a ancient Celtic term for a wild golf-swing that was placed, for example, by a Titlest plunked into murky water.
FYI: The witches of the clan Mullen often danced to the incantations of Flay-vo-Flay.
Of course I knew you were just playing, about Elmer :-) And it's really nice to have a little fun on this board, given we're under the Siege of the Impostors :-)
I did follow up on your book recommendation and found it fascinating, thanks!
It's always a pleasure to see old longs on the EYMB. This, too, shall pass ...
.. but OMG, what's next??? ;-)
" cannot help but wonder how much of the mishandling is due to Jim Mullet (in front of whom I would not walk down a stairway)."
Not to mention bending over to pick up a bar of soap in the gym shower!
check out this link showing option from 2004 to now, notice the spike is the same as it was
when T launched. today confirmed a very bulish
january I hope everything is well
Taz not the imposter
I hope you know that comment about Elmer was in jest. Anyway it's always nice to chat with you. PS: did you ever get a chance to check out the book "Neither wolf nor dog", by Nerburn? I think you would find it interesting.
I am surprised that someone as calculating as JM floated a deadline he did not know he could meet. I do not think this signals a problem with Antegren, but I do think it signals, yet again, JM's complete and utter disregard for the patients BIIB supposedly serves.
I'd walk down a stairwell in front of JM, if he's got the guts to answer to Elanville at the bottom landing.
Frankly, I assumed when JM put a date on the "end of summer" that meant he fully expected to have completed all patient evaluations at least a week prior to today. I know I never offer or accept a deadline on a commission, unless I am absolutely certain the job will be done well in advance of that date. I know nothing about options, but I imagine a lot of short-term dollars expected something more substantial from the companies by today, which simply was not there.
Today's Elmer, of course, was not THE Elmer. However, do expect him to be out of sorts and out of character if clinical trials do not resume in very short order.
I agree, Lindsey. I do not feel that there is any substantive problem, but rather that this matter has not been handled well. And, as you say, in the long term, today means little.
I cannot help but wonder how much of the mishandling is due to Jim Mullet (in front of whom I would not walk down a stairway).
Thanks for your thoughts.
