    I sent e-mail to

    Elan Corporation today. Joanne reply, our Vice
    President of Investor Relations, she will review your mail
    and get back to you as soon as possible. when I get
    the reply I will let you know what was said.part of
    my email was We don't understand how it can be
    trading this low and looks if it might even be going
    lower. Is there any good news coming soon that would
    change the stock price to be positive or some sort of
    news release from the company that would give us long
    term indvidual investors some relief. It would be
    greatly appreciated if there were something the company
    could say that would give the investors a positive out
    look.

    • eom and end of discussion. You can waste your
      time on mattku02's agenda but I don't have
      time.

      When mattku02 was bailing out of Elan's stock at $23 I
      posted, in fact a day before the DB analyst initiated
      coverage with a buy, and told all th investors here that
      this was the best thing that could happen to Elan's
      stock.

      Take out the traders and speculators and put the stock
      instrong hands. Sif you ever have anything of substance to
      post let me know.

      Read my post on why I was
      happy that Elan traded to the low $20s before you
      respond as well. That way you will understand that I
      think its great for the speculaqtors and day traders to
      get washed out. Will set the stage for a nice rally
      and eventually this capable management team will
      deliver deeds and the shorts will be in retreat.

    • I made NO comment on Matteku02's behavior. The comment was intended for you.

      It's obvious that you do not accept responsibility for your behavior. Now prove it.

    • Mattku02's exctreme behavious is evident on the
      shm board where he posts 40-50 times daily...that's
      extreme.

      His malicious comments on both Elan and Sheffield
      (Elan's partner in pulmonary drug delivery) are a
      reflection of a bitter person ansd one who is unstable as
      you correctly suggest.

    • The last ten or so posts get back to what I got
      used to - not all necessarily essays on stock trading
      or ELN action but informative and helpful. I guess
      down days always bring out the trash talkers. Let's
      hope for Z Tide approval soon. The company needs
      another product to sell. Also, the word is that Neurobloc
      is pretty close and the sales force is just about
      assembled. Seems like a very sophisticated product with a
      sales force which is made up of only experienced a
      successful medical sales personnel. At this point, we need
      good steady revenues and earnings. Although everyone
      wants to make alot of money fast, ELN has been
      remarkably successful doing it the old fashioned way, making
      money and meeting targets. I have no reason to think
      that the addition of a full fledged sales force and
      the sales of their own products can do anything but
      benefit the shareholders long term.

    • Bring on some good news and watch it fly.

    • I was watching the market with streaming quotes
      and size of trade at the end of today's trading. I
      noted the last 5 trades(all I could see, once I noticed
      the action) were as follows: (ALL BUYS ON UPTICK)
      6000, 5900,3400,1900,1000.
      This would seem to verify
      the money flow arguement presented by dgher.
      I am
      in ELN long and with recent purchase of April 27.5
      calls cheap. At this point, any news re: FDA approvals,
      progress in AZ trials,
      buyout prospects would move the
      stock past overhead resistance at print of
      $28/share.
      Hoping for a reversal of trend and recognition of the
      great potential of this firm.
      P.S.: I visited Elan's
      headqtrs, in Athlone, a few years ago; very pleasant people
      gave me a complete tour of the facilities and were
      most helpful towards investors; always a good
      sign.
      Regards,
      James

    • Yesterday, the shorts were passing around that
      Ziconotide would miss the filing target. Since ELN has
      publicly stated in recent days that they have already
      pre-submitted parts of the Z filing, this appears unlikely.
      However, it did push the stock down yesterday and allow
      some short covering which extended into today. If one
      is a devotee of Laszlo Birinyi's (a Wall Street elf)
      money flow work, one would see that block money has
      been coming into ELN since the $32 downturn (i.e.
      block buyers have on average had to buy on upticks, not
      downticks, suggesting it is tougher to buy a big position in
      the stock depsite the drop in price-an implicit sign
      of strength according to Laszlo's work). The company
      has told everyone that Zonegran and Neurobloc are in
      the final stages of labeling and Ziconotide is to be
      filed, but the stock is now being characterized by
      analysts as a "show me" stock. Underneath, someone
      believes and is accumulating while the shorts seem to be
      covering.

    • DLJ comments on the stock today stem from the
      healthcare conference theuy organised in recent
      days...

      Elan spoke at least two days ago and the DLJ analyst
      issued already the same comments before the market
      opening yesterday...

      So it may not be DLJ except
      if the market sleeps after reading DLJ
      recommendations...

    • also gave $35 target for stock in today's announcement.

    • imminent. Whether it is Zonegran, or the
      Alzheimer's IND announcement, or something else. This stock
      has been waiting for a catalyst, to offset the
      oversold situation that has prevailed since the
      overreaction to the four cent earnings delay in late October,
      on the heals of the SEC accounting inquiry and the
      potential dilutive Medeva acquisition. When that news
      comes, we will be back to $35 in no time, with a fairly
      fast move back to our high of 43 15/16 last
      March.

      Have a good holiday (for those who celebrate
      Thanksgiving). All of us can be thankful that we are on the
      upswing after a long several months.
