    Cubist takes us out @ 19-19.50 before earnings, why settle for 47M in revenue when they can take us our for cash and stock, they have about 350M according to filings and our 100M+ and the Astrellas royalty gives them room to offer up to a 40-50% premiom now. Stay tuned just a thought/

      <<Marketing expenses for the second quarter of 2011 increased $6.3 million compared to the second quarter of 2010 due to Optimer's efforts to establish a commercial infrastructure and prepare for the launch of DIFICID, including the hiring of approximately 100 marketing and sales staff. General and administrative expenses increased $3.8 million compared to the second quarter of 2010, primarily because of higher compensation expense due to additional headcount as well as higher recruitment, consulting, facilities and legal expenses. Research and development expenses increased $4.2 million compared to the second quarter of 2010 due to higher health economics research, pharmacovigilance, medical affairs and publication expenses, as well as higher research and development expenses by OBI associated with the OPT-822 Phase 2/3 trial in breast cancer.>> (from their 2Q earnings report)
