Please take a moment to vote whether or not you think ARNA CEO Jack Lief should be replaced.
YES (thumbs up)
NO (thumbs down)
BEWARE--(1) The yes viewpoint is wrong. My books on family therapy call this "scapegoating". (Scapegoating errs by assigning cause to just one party when other parties, perhaps many parties are at fault. Punishing the scapegoat fixes nothing, actually adds to the damage, so is dysfunctional.)
(2) Ten paid spammers ("shorts for hire") with 15 Yahoo log-ins apiece , so their "leader" above gets 150 thumbs up??

My answer is NO- You could have had any other CEO in charge and still too many doctors would be reluctant to prescribe so early in the product intro. Better questions are about WHY more doctors are not prescribing-- Is it due to caring less about patient health than other things? Due to ignorance about the LOW effectiveness of diet-and-exercise-alone? (D&E has been recommended for THREE DECADES, yet the percentage of the population that is obese is higher than ever.)

All of jack leif's support comes from the shorts and hedgefunds wha have benifitted greatly from his absentee management and they still are....jack must be given the boot before arena becomes a total loss to all longterm shareholders...no wonder insiders own less than 1/2 of 1% of the comany...their beliefs lie elsewhere...wake up it's time for jack to retire or be fired!!!!
I've always wondered how ARNA could not care one bit about share price when their company was built on the backs and pocketbooks of the average retail investor. No appreciation. No consideration. No thanks. Losers. Period.
