Amylin Pharmaceuticals, Inc. Message Board

  • scowtown scowtown Mar 10, 2012 9:12 PM Flag

    Couch potato CEOs

    All of you folks displaying your business acumen by sitting there on your couch typing out messages on Yahoo about the lack of abilities of Amylin's management. Rather than do anything yourself that would require you to get away from your computer you place all your hope on Carl Icahn.

    When all is said and done and Amylin is in the top five ranking of pharmaceuticals you will conveniently ignore your negative postings and pat yourselves on the back for a job well done in providing guidance for something you do not have a clue about.

    Let's look at the Amylin story. Dan has guided the company through some hard times and has finally achieved the goal of getting Bydureon through FDA approval and this in spite of a concentrated effort to scuttle the company by those who continuously planted false stories regarding pancreatitis, cancer, heart problems, etc., not to mention a philandering partner who was looking after their own interests at the expense of Amylin.

    Many of you who are clamoring now about how ineffective Dan is were saying how Amylin should get rid of the shackles of Lilly. Dan was at the helm when that was done. Now that that is behind us you are now clamoring about how it was not in the best of terms.

    There were those of you who faulted Amylin management for the Ohio plant. Thanks to their foresight we were able to hit the road running when approval was achieved.

    The Amylin story is just starting to bud. We are a world class pharmaceutical with room to grow thanks to Dan and the management team.

      • You are right about getting Lily off our backs that was big. This was a good thing Dan did, but at the same time was/is Amylin working on a sales partner/team in Europe. Show us the money, but don't sell any more of our shares.

        It is also full of shareholders that have given their capital to Bradbury and pals. There should be no doubt that the use of said capital has been AWFUL. Bradbury and the rest of the lame brains have rewarded themselves with OUTRAGEOUS amounts of money (taken from the shareholders). Further, ALL of the shares they own have been "given" to them as they do not have a single penny of their own in the game - how could they!? ALL of their money has been taken from shareholders.

        As far as "someday Amylin will ... Blah Blah Blah ..." is concerned - I have been listening to that idiotic chant for over a decade. If you believe that stuff you are stupider than Danny.
