Another non-supportive article that casts doubt on Belviq. Author seems to only regurgitate old negative misinformation, 3% average, Consumer Reports, etc. Perhaps someone more articulate than I can post relevant facts in the comments section to the story. At least the readers would have more information to go by. Blog is by Johathan Berr, "New diet pill no easy path to weight loss"
Old negative information kills. The age doesn't matter .The science has not changed in the last year. The only difference in the last year is Europe was not happy with ARNA's application and was prepared to reject it
Hogwash. OLD information is something that has already been cooked into the pie. If the market heard about it 6 months ago, a year ago, or 4 years ago it is likely to have already been dealt with and absorbed into the market outlook.
What is dangerous about this kind of story is the fact that is is more misleading to shorts than it is to longs. As I have stated numerous time, those that think Belviq users are going to see a mere 3% loss of weight in a year are in for a real surprise when that figure ends up being more than double or even triple that rate of loss.
They need to get those dang D2C commercials with real, live people that took the drug or are taking and shown benefits. There are so many people I see coming into the pharmacy that are candidates for Belviq that have diabetes, htn, etc. Saw several obese folks over this week that are in dire need! C'mon Eisai, wake the American people up!
This week should be the week that the hedge makes its final dive into the retail shares at these levels. Monday may mark the last chance for the shares to be purchased at whatever levels they get this down to. Starting Monday more of the actual pill takers and their stories should begin to emerge and make their way into blogs and different articles. Like anything that is novel there is a discovery time that must take place as those outside the immediate information circle begin to hear about it. We have listened to lots of groundless, baseless information put forth to create fear and doubt. There is a big money stream existing that will suffer if people in this program begin losing weight as those in the studies did and this becomes accepted by the public. My guess is that any negative news will be amplified and any positive news will be diminished. I'm looking forward to one way or another to see what happens. My gut tells me this is a monster in the making. My brain tells me that Wall Street is waging a psyops War against this and won't quit till they are overpowered.
