did I say 50? 20 maybe? ok let's say 50. I never said when. maybe some day. but that was before I find out the CEO can't even sell his own company's story on national TV when given the chance and blows it almost every time -- and before I find out how much they suck at IR and communications and "street smarts" -- great science but a new CEO will do it good.
you should contact SEC and FINRA and follow up on the letter that was sent asking them to investigate FOG EQUITIES and CV BROKERAGE in relationship to Arena reverse conversions.
that's a funny way of trying to get even (LOL)
I do agree that there seems to be a trust issue, sad to say.
"ARNA stock tanked from $8 to $3.26," $8????? Where have you been? How about $12. After approval it was in 12 range -- 11 -- 10 -- and down it went losing two-third of its value while institutions haven't added significantly for some two years -- still under 50%. These are just facts. Each person can interpret it for themselves. Keep in mind the product is best-of-breed and the market is huge.
I'd be really excited too if I got over a 100k a month in salary PLUS
I think it was Jack's idea to put himself on the air if you're talking about TV. He's the boss so he calls the shorts. Who's higher than him? The board? It might be a u scratch my back I scratch yours which is typically the case...
I don't disagree with the title of this thread. I have no idea what Russo is doing for Arena esp. in their "media relations" role and I don't want to imagine the bills shareholders are footing.
He forced what? Please share your source. His daughter, Lainey E. Audet was an intern there two summers according to her Linkedin profile. Cindy was in and out of there too.

I don't think it's all about transparency but the OREX team did an amazing job at the conf call -- in fact I'm calling it amazing as compared to how ARNA would have blown the same call given the questions that were thrown at them -- but it's just normal way of handling a call by people who have both training AND aptitude in certain areas which is missing at ARNA. On the technical side ARNA is top notch and puts OREX and VVUS in its back pocket. But Arena is overall weak when it comes to a combination of presentation skills, relationship with investor community, communications, persuasion skills, likeability of management (vs. frustrating reporters and analysts, laughing them off, not answering the question that was asked, or giving an answer at a level that might be ingenious if you know this field inside out but meaningless to the target audience, etc.)
OREX had some tough questions thrown at them and in every single case they handled it masterfully, convincingly, and persuasively.
Hoffman who's speaking at CS is their best speaker, so I'm glad they're having him do it.
I like the background of the new IR Director very much and hope the company gives him the green light to do a major overhaul of this area.
Enter "Arena Pharmaceuticals"
then you say:
Find Cambridge Investment
Where? When I get all ARNA's documents I only see the 10q, 8k's and 4 filings. And there's no place to search for Cambridge Investment
please advise. thanks
First, well to your disappointment we've received a ton of positive feedback about the complaint. Second, it wasn't a lawsuit or a court pleading so no we didn't need a lawyer, and even if it were we could probably do it pro se -- but you apparently can't tell the diff b/w a complaint to a regulator and a court pleading, but that's ok. As for the rest of your BS and cheap shots, when you throw darts at others anonymously, you're a coward.
I couldn't agree more. I get the same feeling. Now get on Investor Village and express your opinions to some of the crowd
whose got their head in the sand there.
immediate correlation of the stock and his speaking is not so important -- it's the long term repeated missed opportunities to sell the story when he has golden chances and so on and so on. Sooooooooooooo fedup.
He does ok with prepared remark - slow - but that's his way and it's ok - but the way he misses so many soft tosses and fails to turn around so many opportunities to put out a convincing statement is ridiculous. And this is just the tip of the iceberg. He has good qualities too don't get me wrong but I'm completely fed up with what he doesn't have and doing and not doing things that really matter that unless there's a meaningful change from inside I don't think he'll last long as a CEO.
I totally disagree -- Jack tries to do his best every time but he simply doesn't have it in his blood. They asked him about Belviq's competitive advantage. He frikin answered that it will pay for the pipeline!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Jack's time as CEO is up unless he brings a radical shift to how this company handles its communications and investor relations.
I agree. Can't believe how many chances to attract new investors and to tell the story, he's blown. It just can't go on like this any longer. It's unacceptable.
Others can file their own complaints too for the same things especially now that the FTD list shows ARNA on there extensively in first 15 days of OCT.
