Ouch my friend, What works for me is doing the opposite of what I want to do. I plan to watch the NBA finals. I think LAClippers could win because Lebron James may want to join them so he won't maim any future teammates. Durant should be MVP and Gregg Popovich best couch. Pity that the Knicks are out. I am glad the Bulls are in because I love to watch Noah who is always emotional. Probably see you for Q1. Be well, Candide.
Kye, Unanswerable IMO.But with Apaz, SP2012, Belinostat and more on the market, it should be worth more than $6. It is all about time.
New, Not really. As a CEO, Raj is not qualified. As a researcher who takes abandoned drugs and recreates them well enough for FDA approval, he is brilliant. Do you think a "fresh face" could do better? .
Caveman, Thank you for standing up for Dr. Shrotriya and Spectrum, with facts. While many float along with a pipeline for a decade or more, Spectrum will have four FDA approved cancer drugs on the market.
The market's reaction to Belinostat has not caused a significant rise in pps so I don't think a merger of a company in Copenhagen is going to be a major news event. As you know, the FDA will approve this drug before the second phase of clinical trials has begun, hopefully in Denmark. SPPI is paying the most for them, but if the merger enables them to begin before SPPI pays up, that's good news for us, imo. Why? Think sales of Fusilev will increase..
Kye, Spectrum acquires companies and has many agreements with other partners worldwide. That does not have anything to do with our contractual agreements with Topotarget. I agree with Ouch. TOPO is or was essentially broke due to all the money and work involved in developing Belinostat and conducting clinical trials to date. Hopefully, this new partner is neither broke nor excessively wealthy..
At this point, I would view this as a confirmation of Belinostat's value.
Sherry, my dear, If anyone deserves a break from the MB, it is you. It is so depressing watching this stock always falling while others climb on expectations that some pipeline drug will eventually work well enough for FDA approval. Wasn't Belinostat supposed to be a "jackpot"? And my favorite, Apaziquone will be a great and valuable addition with no competition. We have world rights for it, not because Allergan thought it didn't work, but because it might upset investors. When you think about it, that does make sense. given the high cost of manufacturing and marketing such a medication.
I would love to know why sales are falling for Zevalin and Folatyn. I did not think that Spectrum should go through with that acquisition. It did not enjoy a good reputation because it was/is too toxic. Patients could only tolerate it if given with crud drug, Fusilev or possibly with Belinostat. We didn't need this drug, imo. I think the portfolio may have been more important. Perhaps we should have used the money for Belinostat
or trials for Apaz and study of SP2012. I could be totally wrong, but I don't see any merit in buying a drug that will never bring in more than a few millions a year. SPPI should put its money in drugs that will bring in $Billion a year and stop buying cheap drugs that will never amount to much. Really stupid, imo, but that's Raj.
who can't turn down a bargain. He must focus on drugs that can become $Billion/year meds and stop busy work that will never be profitable. KK is making necessary changes to bring this company into position to grow. Raj will step down fairly soon and this will be a well run company at some point. Have a great time sweetie.
Oh Ducky, what a cheery post again. I like this one because you have taken some true points and with great skill, turned them into negatives. Why are sales so low? Good question, but KK , not Raj,. is the man to ask.
For a $1,000,000 yearly salary, I would have expected far more. He and four times more salesmen, how can sales fall? I think we should re-evaluate his performance. And you, Ducky, need to get a kitten.
Another generic recall. This isn't leucovorin, but is another example of how poorly some generics are made. They are not cheap enough to risk possible dangers.
Hneiman, I have no major problems long term, but I think we have too many really sick people here. They drive away longs and possibly potential buyers. I don't want this MB to be a cesspool all the time.
ATTN: STRING: JJ is off and Sherry will be too. I will not wave a flag of surrender, but I could use your help.
Look at Rectuminspection's post re: dead, old, dirty Indian. As part of post grad work, I have worked in a locked psych ward and never had to cope with anyone as depraved (imo).. This guy does not belong here. IMO
First, I guess the red means our MB is fine as is. Filthy, foul-mouthed insults is ok.
Second, As one of only two women on this board, I am the only one here interested in the NBA. That's strange, especially with so many surprises. And who will Phil add and subtract for the Knicks. Think Noah would be a great choice. In the East, James can beat the exhausted Paul George, imo.
The West? Not much Thunder, but if Timmy remains an observer, the Spurs may be washed out to sea by the Clippers. Or, the Rockets may finally take-off. The key is really Durant, IMO.
Obviously, you are a racist with no sense of ethics or morality. A fitting alias.
My very dear Sherry, This is one of the very best posts I have seen in a very long time. This is as green as it gets If only the red cowards would back up their sentiment with aliases, we and Yahoo would know who sullies this board.
Can anyone come up with a reason to dislike, disagree with or dismiss this lucid, superbly written and informative post? IMO this is A plus work.
From a nontechnical outlook, the entire market is in trouble. Frankly, I am surprised a downtrend did not occur earlier and sharper. This stock has been a misery for some time and I don't see a quick fix coming soon. Approval of Belinostat will do little, but doubling revenues of Fusilev will, imo.. And, that is a real possibility due to growing distrust of generics.
First, Why is there so much rancor om this current MB? What is accomplished by insults and vile language?
Second, In the NBA playoffs, will the Pacers begin as best of the East? Will the Spurs be the best of the West? In the final game, which team will win? Who is this year's MVP? Durant, George or James?
STS, Sherry has no need to contact anyone. How can you attack anyone for doing the same thing you are? Why don't you attempt to be civil.
My very dear Sherry,
Please ignore this irrational sexist sleaze. He is obviously far more personal than we are. We don't discuss our children in detail. Cancer? Sure. What does Spectrum do? Markets cancer drugs. But we can't talk about it? Anyone who beats up on someone enduring cancer does not belong here. Sweetie, he isn't worth a minute of your time nor mine.
