Lipitor is the world's best selling drug of all time. Lipitor scripts were less than 1000 in the first full week. Belviq has doubled that in it's first full week.
And, Wall Street is still pretty #$%$ that they cannot get the shares they need and want.
I agree SP 9.5 TA wise but now it’s about scripts
Or rumors fud and lies lmao I will take any big drop and add till the real # stop growing x out holiday #s that shorts will use next week to raid the price as surly the growth in # will slow. Also consider that many people will start and be on vacation starting this week and that will affect the growth of scripts as they postpone Doctor visits and starting diets JMHO GLTA
This is the kind of idiocy that engenders fear in weak longs, not confidence, because it is so irrelevant to the matter at hand: scripts for THIS week, and THIS month - for Belviq, not Lipitor. Why not give it break for a little while - your grandstanding is obviously not moving the stock price this morning, and if it moves this afternoon, it will not have had anything to do with you, except perhaps not meet its optimum potential.
I agree with you Josef! Comparing Lipitor and Belviq start is of dubious comparison. But generally it shows you that unlike the commentary in here---this launch is generally just fine! Yet you read all this garbage about how ARNA is dead in the water and easai is dropping the ball.
It defies any logic to say so! Script numbers for the first weeks reflect logistical unfurling of the selling process. People up north warm up their cars in the winter before taking off to be able to even see out the window and allow the engine a prep time for use! That why none of the drugs mentioned sell a million the first weeks---its not physically possible. it about doing the opening grunt work!
Commentating on them for the purposes of spin either way is simply the ultimate in stupidity and people who listen to it are even more stupid!!
Sentiment: Strong Buy
Can't compare with Lipitor, apples vs oranges at least in the expectation of huge sales run ups within a month or so for one key reason...When you take Lipitor it takes less than a month to acheive the desired result, with Belviq the desired results (if any) won't be readily apparent for at least 6-12 months. I'm betting on great script #'s just not as quickly as some suggest. GLTA
