Have you seen some of the "anylysts" reports on some securities? Pathentic, work by wall street.
It is not a big surprise that many of these wall street firms had been investigated and new rules and laws had to be put into place. It seems some just look the rules and good due diligence in the face and create whatever suits their needs.
I suggest you do your own due diligence and don't rely too heavily on any "analyst" report from wall street.
My opinion is completely different on VVUS, I believe they are on the right track and will be in good shape to grow and increase revenues. I think when I match them up against similar size companies VVUS out performs many of them. Do your own homework and dont buy or sell based completely on what you read hear or by these pathetic anlysts.
