    The guts of the 8K indicate it depends on sales:

    Item 8.01 Other Events.

    On July 21, 2014, we announced that our wholly owned subsidiary, Arena Pharmaceuticals GmbH, has entered into an exclusive marketing and supply agreement for BELVIQ® (lorcaserin HCl) with Teva Pharmaceutical Industries Ltd.’s local Israeli subsidiary, Abic Marketing Limited. Under the agreement, we granted Abic the rights to market and distribute BELVIQ in Israel for weight loss or weight management in obese and overweight patients, subject to regulatory approval by the State of Israel Ministry of Health.

    Abic is responsible for regulatory approval and, ultimately, marketing and distribution of BELVIQ in Israel, including related costs and expenses. We will manufacture finished drug product at our facility in Switzerland, which

    we will sell to Abic at a purchase price equal to a percentage of Abic’s annual net sales of BELVIQ.

    More needs to be done with those who do not respond to Belviq. Is this a psychological wish to defeat its effectiveness by eating even WHEN NOT HUNGRY? Even people who have been successful at weight loss by dieting and exercise alone realize that they cannot eat for other reason than your body's basic need for nutrition. If stress is the motivation for eating (because it makes you feel good), then the stress situation needs to be dealt with directly. I expect research and papers will result from studying and treating these non-responders.

    Arena technology is the future of pharmocology. Imagine DESIGNING molecules to fit receptor geometry to either facility or inhibit signal transmissions through the receptors. Brilliant! Other drug developers have licensed the technology (and software) to find their own new drugs. That is what brought Behan and Lief together in the first place in the mid-1990s. Research was underway back then to identify receptors and the question was: could molecules be created interact with them. It was a long shot then, but NOW is reality. Do your own DD, and consider investing in ARNA.

    Now exactly HOW would you expect a "stellar" CEO to announce such a partnership?? Spencer Osbourne will comment later in the week with no provacation from Arena. Perhaps they should have given out free ice cream cones in front of the Statue of Liberty!!?

    Indications for approval may not be as restrictive as in the US and many US citizens can buy from Israel for weight loss needs even if BMI is less than 27.5 This could also be the case in the Canadian application and approval.

    Necessary verbiage to avoid lawsuits over tantelizing new investors. That is also why Arena would not release IMS or Smphony numbers for rear that some people would sue them over predarory promotion of their stock.

    Brighter Days Almost Certainly Ahead

    Arena was very responsible with common sense. They bought their own manufacturing facility in Switzerland. They negotiated a great partnership with Eisai to maintain their own viability as a self-directed drug discovery company. They continued to add to a fabulous patent porfolio. I blame the WS savvy on Wall Street who seem to love CEOs who pander to them rather than doing their own honest DD. Replacing this CEO is total BS. If WS then decided en masse to punish Arena that is their downfalling.

    Longs who did their own DD on the value of Arena's strategy have won some reward already. The potential of the future for Arena is huge. How many research pharmaceuticals have a totally new system for drug discovery that extends beyond sifting through the know drug compounds or seeking straws in the haystack with regard to exotic plants? I see Arena as a case study of a new wave of pharmceutical research...push the research in areas that academic research has defined as great potential. Hire people who can think out of the box. Leave the drug marketing to other pharmas who prefer to sell drugs over developing drugs. If I were to be critical of communications with WS, it would be with Eisai, but they DID replace their American leader and the strategy of improving sales is in place. All those other companies who have yet to get their weight loss drugs approved with the SEC, have the same tortuous road to marketing success ahead of them.

    Stock price is not reacting to news because of various bashing tactics: high frequency sales to drive prices down, shorts' dates expiring, availability of shares for covering shorts, weekly scripts not responding to predictions leading to blockbuster status, ignoring or ignorance of other drug activities in Arena's pipeline. So you have to do your own dilegence to determine where you want to stand and be consistent in your strategy. Just buying low (under $5) and selling high (over $5.50) would have paid off over the last 6 months and I suspect a lot of longs have been doing so while holding a long term amount.) I have made a few trades in this way (averaging down) and selling back some when a turnabout seemed obvious. Most recently price opened to $5.40 on July 14, but by 2 PM had droppped to $5.20. I sold a handful and bough back on July 16 at $4.80. With todays commissions by by Etrade, buying and selling is much less of a headache than 15 years ago when broker commission would have been over 10X as much.

    They don't want the sales headaches. That is why they partnered with Eisai and will partner again with a pharma with marketing acumen, when new drugs from Arena researcg have reached the final clinical trial level. Having worked in a big company who FAILED because of marketing not understanding the future as well as the research organization, I am in complete agreement with this strategy.

    This is a result of Arena's patented technology to design molecular shapes that fit receptor geometry. I think this application will have even greater impact on the future of chronic problems than even Belviq has in regards to the receptor on the hypothalamus that modulates hunger demand. The need for an effective pain medicine that is non-addictive is huge.
