    Exactly and well stated. Private meeting and that's it. Something not right with the whole AF involvement.

    Very important technical indicator. Nice to see this piercing of 5. If we hold here, we may see reversal take place.

    Smart gal. Switzerland rocks! Eating cheese and skiing. They don't care what we think. C'mon. One of the few things that I agreed with JDS stating he asked ARNA management regarding buying some stock or something of that nature. You think one of these schmucks would buy a few thousand shares at these depressed prices to improve shareholder sentiment and to show something positive in the works. No way. These weekly numbers coming out the next 1-2 months should be the yay or nay of holding this stock or trimming losses. I am happy I unloaded 10,000 shares in the 6's, made up losses with other trades and have less exposure. Management is just as important as product and they are showing no class.

    Kutz, Luk, Dr. Dan, where are you? Bichez.

    Market Cap

    It is the market looking forward-like it or not. Right now, they don't like what they see with ARNA. I'm not crazy about it either as any long, who is honest, will admit. Next 2 months critical to see increase in weekly sales.

    Regarding OREX. I'm thinking to ready to trade this one. All you should care about with OREX is perception and momentum while keeping an eye on the news and general indices. OREX was a great buy when it got knocked down below 6. Still think it's a good deal below 6.5.

    Very interesting how this nut times his articles when some positive news comes for NWBO. It's not a coincidence any longer and I would hope SEC does investigate him and Cramer.

    You have to watch the video on You Tube how Cramer talks about various manipulations done by the big guys to shake folks out of stocks and buy cheaper. Pretty sick, but this is how the world works unfortunately. The good thing is that with Internet these scams can be exposed and some folks are getting wiser.

    Need to hit this and it seems like we are working that way. RSI is low which is good and means we are oversold. So, lets see what happens.

    I believe there are A LOT more uses for the sapphire than iPhones. Clear, strong surfaces are needed in military, industrial and consumer products.

    Feedback to ARNA Investor Relations

    I think you did good writing it. Who cares if they trash it. The point is that you wrote it and you expressed how you feel. I remember some politician talking about how they pay attention to written letters and how the American public writes so few of them. Myself included. Good job.

  • I'm a margin trader. Made big this way and lost big. :(

    Yesterday, a colleague and I were talking about solar power. His son's girlfriend works in Southern Cal and for SolarCity. Very busy and everyone is upgrading to solar. She informed him that electrical energy costs highest in all of the US there. I'm a big fan of Elon Musk. I like his leadership and his vision and attention to quality and...

    So, I put an order today to buy 1000 shares of SCTY and I must have been thinking I was buying one of my cheapie drug stocks and buy 10,000. I get a margin call for half million plus. I woke up really fast (haven't had my coffee since trading at computer right at the start. Sold NWBO today for $13000 grand plus profits. It's gonna be a good day.)

    10,000 bought at 60.75. This is such a fast market that I was able to unload 9,000 at 60.80. Musk is supposed to be on CNBC later (not sure if when markets are trading), but with my luck, I'll have someone calling me from the brokerage to cough up the money.

    Moral of the story: 1. Drink coffee first 2. Check you final trade info before clicking the mouse.

    Just read recently this is one of the most heavily shorted stocks. They are going to try to push it as far as they can.

    Informahealthcare Editorial on DCVax-L

    This is one of the best posts I have read on this site. Nice to get opinions (that's what most of us do here), but to get FACTS from the physicians' doing the treatments is GOLDEN.

    Splendid job! I highly recommend everyone printing and reading this one. It's a keeper.

    Means the shorts will be paying 100 bucks a share. Hope they went to Costco and stocked up on the Kleenex to dry up their tears.

    Yesterday, the pharmacist I was working with said I have a Belviq script. No kidding. It was a refill. Copay in the $135ish range. Not cheap and this can be a hindrance to filling, as Spencer Osborne, has mentioned on SA.

    On the bright side, I was surprised to see the daily count of Belviq to move from 32 to 13 in one day. That used to take about a week. Our supplier reordered drug and shows 100 again. It is nice to see weekly numbers approaching 11,000. Maybe this week?

    On the negative side, I am awaiting Contrave. I would hope it wouldn't sell well, but will wait and see. I would consider adding at these prices to what I have remaining, but will watch this closely. As Osborne mentioned, maybe it will bring some legitimacy to the weight loss meds and lower copays overall.

    Worked at a pharmacy yesterday and new customer on Belviq. Paid 150 plus. So, not everyone is waiting for insurance to kick in. Another customer wanted us to contact the MD because didn't wan to pay $45 copay. Different medication. See, this is what I'm telling you. Not everyone wants to pay. The good news is the MD who wrote that script, I have seen a number of his Rx's around so it means he's prescribing for others too. I hope we get a nice jump up this Friday.

    I wouldn't short it either. Never know what can come back and bite you next week. :)

    Heck with him. He's become an old blow hard already. Too many rebuttals and you lose the hype. For me at least. I wish they can somehow monetize how Germany is going to help them, but I understand this is all in its infancy.

    What scares me is when are they going to throw in the towel? They need to work on a new plan. Also, a big pressure should be applied to State Medicaid agencies to get this covered. Lastly, focus on pushing patients to those Doc's already prescribing and comfortable with this. I've said this a million times. Steer the consumer to The Prescriber and not just "any" prescriber. This can be done effectively through the website and through 1-800 numbers that Eisai provides on the website, printed media and TV.

    Need Someone in Authority to Respond

    I think the company should stop responding to him. They can do it in their lecture circuits sponsored by various investment houses and respond indirectly (not mentioning his name because this fleabag doesn't deserve any attention), but to me he has become like a naughty little child constantly being rebuked by his parents. Long 10,000 and staying long.

    DCVax-Brain Phase II Patient #223

    This is a very good post. Besides supplements, diet is one of the most unmentioned and underestimated methods of treating diseases. Nuts are excellent sources of nutrients. Hippocrates was a big proponent of foods to prevent diseases. The problem is that we have been "conditioned" to eat out, not know how to cook (not taught in school any longer), both spouses working and poor selection of restaurants providing nutritional meals at an affordable price. As a pharmacist, I really like your response. Thumbs up!

    Great find. Thanks!
