I have heard of a Eisai visit and seen once an Eisai rep doing rounds at one of the pharmacies I worked at. Funny thing I have seen a little Belviq action in a suburb outside Sacramento, but not too much more. Lots of big doses of Lantus and Levemir being prescribed. Lots of big people coming to the pharmacies. Don't know what to say. Jack, Eisai, Dr. resistance, patient resistance, etc. (I mentioned this drug twice to a big guy who injects loads of insulin and takes various antihypertensives. He's not interested).
Today was biotech sell off. Take a look at JUNO. No news is good news. Just hope there is no bad news. Nothing else to do than sit tight.
This is a great hypothesis. I agree. The money would flow in and give a rise to the whole field of stocks in this area. Nice move on NWBO today. It's definitely a positive indicator to take out 9 even should it fall later in the day. I see the MO-MO up!
Bio, as a pharmacist, I have yet to dispense Belviq. Can you #$%$ believe it? No Contrave either. I did dispense a Myrbetriq a few times though some folks balk at the high copay and it becomes a return-to-stock and contact MD for a less expensive alternative. The Eisai rep came by this pharmacy to hand out consumer coupons for $75 per month if no insurance. I did not get a chance to talk to this fine, buxom lady because I was helping some old bag at the register trying to find her script and the whole time going absolutely nuts because I wanted to ask her a number of questions and also because she was a fine, buxom young lady. :)
I putting my money on these days immunotherapy plays like CLDX and JUNO. Interesting chart on ARNA, but I agree they will have to come up with something new to excite the stock.
I'd have to say the last two days have been great for NWBO. Good volume and especially on two down days in market indices. I'll consider building a position again. Got other positions to sit on and will watch what happens with Greece, interest rates, etc., but if the pps takes out the old high, I say look out!
I would hold this. Only a fool would think this is a pump and dump. Not with markets overall so negative. There is some killer good news coming very soon. Maybe today, tomorrow, but very soon. This kind of volume does not happen for no reason-usually. I bought back the call options I sold yesterday as I felt the market was heading south. Bought them back today. As a pharmacist, I think their drug is going to be a big seller. No effective treatments for PDP and I think their trials for ADP is just as compelling to own it. GL!
Could be they are comparing it to Provenge from Dendreon and the slow sales. Good article on Forbes with a money manager stating his reasons for owning NWBO. Supposed to be some info from trials this ASCO in May. Lets hope for the best.
i got turned onto EPL by a Mexican guy I know a few years ago, He liked the food and told me about them. I have bought their burritos primarily and have bought them for people who have worked for me and everyone liked them. I think they are much better than Taco Bell. I agree the menu is a bit confusing. I think it could be better organized. I do think their salads are a great idea for those looking to watch calories. I had a new one open up close to me recently. I think they can really capitalize on the after work crowd who want more than just a burrito, but a healthy meal with chicken or fish, more veggies and potatoes or rice. I think they can be what Boston Chicken used to be many years ago .People want more (I do) than a lousy burger and fries all the time. Create healthy meals with some variety or options for veggies and they will trounce the competition.
