    • You must have to have your mom pat your tushie every night and demand to hear her tell you what a good, smart, boy you are to ease your soul. Quit the fricken crying. You obviously suffer from a confidence problem and may need counseling in the near future. Quit being a P u $ $ e and sell your interest if you haven't got the fortitude to wait it out. Please..... enough of the crying !!!

    • CEO has done a great job. good partnership.good deal on manufacturing plant. company is being screwed by inept DEA.seems there is always a government agency involved in all slowdowns. its a true shame that we cant honestly review them and eliminate the ones that don't perform or just farm out the job to people who can

      Sentiment: Buy

    • PR could read.....We are getting closer for an Asian partner...Indian partner... we have been progressing in getting more coverage for Belviq......ANYTHING...they have been going to work every day right? Tell me about that..

      Sentiment: Strong Buy

    • Well personally - i would luv to agree with you ,, but we must all remember that we have came from 1.50 to taodays pps sooo its not all been bad except for those of course that got in after the fda approval and pd 8 plus -- i also believe that we will see 15-20 bucks on this before yrs end ...... im not sure what jack can do before dea lets us loose on this --- im no lawyer but i just think they are all sitting tight until dea says its a go -- after that im sure we will all be fully aware of jacks thoughts and intentions .... Lokks to me like he and his co have done some mighty fine moves in getting this made elsewhere and getting a 10 yr tax free deal --- now if they could only work it out to where i could sell my arna shares in a yr and get that same kinda deal i would be elated ,lol ....... Because im gonna make a ton on this lil puppy !!!!

      • First thank you for an honest sane response. I bought some at $2.70 so I am still OK. Sadly I bought a lot more at around $9. My point is that with an awesome product like this any CEO that would give weekly or even monthly updates on partner plans, talks with DEA etc. etc. Would have this product up over $10 still. I was very upset to see him file for and fight for his 2013 increase in his bonus while filing late that same month to EU. Alsohe put in a buy for $8.27 when our stock was over $9

    • It isn't a CEO's job to be a cheer leader for the stock price. It is their job to execute, and execute well, in which case the stock price will follow.... as can be seen my looking at this stock's trajectory in 2012.

      I, am most rational observers, feel the CEO has done a great job... navigating through the approval process, courting a big pharma partner to solve distribution, and striking a number of other strategic / revenue generating alliances. If you are going to fault him for a government agency dragging their heels, I take it you are not familiar with the U.S. government? ;)

    • You're a fool. Don't know anything about what you're talking about, and the TRUTH is, you're probably not even invested in the company, or at least I hope you aren't, because you are so uneducated on how this all works that even if you get lucky by stumbling on to our little gem here, you'll lose it all by employing your methodology in the future.
      Learn about what the CEO and PR can and can't actually do. Also learn that they have a lot more important things to do than to pander to share holders. I suppose quadrupling their company's value in a little less than a year is grounds for termination in your world.
      You might not be rich, but you'd be less of an idiot if you thought before you posted.

    • He can't do anything until the DEA rules----period". What else would you have him do?

    • Is this true or not ?

      • no true, dude chance, just sell me your shares.

        Sentiment: Strong Buy

      • In my opinion no it is not true.

        What would you like the PR to read right now? Give us a head line of that PR.

        What else can they say that they have not already said. They have done several dog and pony shows as well as a CC in them all they state we are ready to move forward Eisai is ready to move forward. We are waiting for DEA final scheduling. Nothing else to say to support anything, it is not the CEO's job to keep you invested in this stock. It is not his idea to educate all of the shorts and longs on the virtues of this company. He is not there to protect your investment he is there to grow this company and by growing the company the stock price will take care of itself.
