He's awful - we all know this. Many real investors do, too.
Here's the thing - Despite all the "wellness initiatives" with companies, peer and support groups - there is still a major epidemic in the fight against obesity in this country. Any sort of legitimate product (even the approved ones) with any sort of improvement and few side effects has to be taken seriously. If AF spent all that negative energy in tackling this issue rather than bashing companies trying to.....how much better a world would that be?
His timing vs Citi's call isn't looking too good today. The guy is always negative Ive seen him very wrong on several occasions in the last 18mts. All I can say is ignore him and read the real news not some clowns opinion
AF is just a press frontrunner for the shorting interest in this stock! We wen thru his shenanigans in ARNA and after he and his minions were done with us there, he just gravitated over to AMRN in a GIA between the serious news cycle period in AMRN history once the deal/talks were postponed and AMRN proceeded with launch. That process made it easier for the AF's to weasel into this!
He will move on from here too once ANCHOR is approved just like he did ARNA and latch onto the next big thing in the shorting bio world!
The AMRN situation is real simple and clear right now. Penetrate the MARINE market, and prepare for the real prize which is the ANCHOR market. In the interim, its not all that sexy like an FDA decision or deals. So for a while this will grunt along! It will change the closer we get to the end of the year!
