    Reza and Dr. Dan - Both are highly informative and Factual...

    Is anyone else having a hard time finding the amount of shares Jack Lief, the CEO, actually owns. It appears to be -0- or close to it since all insiders together only own 0.53% of the company according to the latest report. So when I hear that Jack Lief hasn't sold a single share since founding the company, I have to wonder why he hasn't bought a significant amount instead of owning so very little. Is this another one of those no cash/free stock options for executives type company?

      nice try shorty. They made this company and you have done no such work.

    • A further inspection of Insider Ownership and Insider Transactions show a plethora of stockoption exercises by officers at well under $2.00 with immediate sales up to $11.00/share, the latest transaction occurring 9-30-12. A total of 166,665 shares have been unloaded by officers in the past 12 months. A total of -0- shares have been purchased by officers during this same time period. Why do insiders not have their own cash on the line @ ARNA?
