Why would the doctors want to kill the Golden Goose? All of the visits from obese folks with other health problems along with all of the different medicines they're prescribing will just go away if the patient just slims down with a weight loss therapy. This will soon change with Medicare coverage and more insurance coverage. Insurance companies will then mandate these drugs to be offered to the obese or their individual rates will rise. This is where we're going with insurance if one wants coverage at a reasonable price. Same happened to smokers. Just a matter of time and I think that time starts in the month of February with Medicare coverage being adopted.
That's funny, All I see is a girly man in his mother's basement, wearing wrist wraps and a diaper, eating pizza and yelling, "Mom, wipe my butt".
I agree with both of you Alan and echo but first things first. FMC is taking care of their own interests first, along with a few other close friends and associates. After the proxy fight they couldn't have signed a partnership or sold the company or it would have looked like Leland et'al actually accomplished that before getting the boot. So FMC can't do anything for at least 6 months to a year so they can make it look like they were the ones who accomplished the sale of the company. This way it will be their name in the headlines when a BP snatches up the best performing weight loss drug in over 14 years. I can go on an on but you get my point. More water must flow under the proxy fight bridge before we see any sort of a deal. Increased insurance coverage, medicare/medicaid and loosened rems will also beat a poke in the eye with a sharp stick.
Hahaha, you're probably right shaggy. Check it out there's another cleft moniker at the top. What a genius group this is. There's a lot of money being spent on these numb #$%$. They're more of a buy signal than Q is as the most effective weight loss therapy. LMAO
Why does this group who pays these foolish bashers put up with the stupid one liners? Can't they give the bashers a script to work from?
Thanks for the broker note wheeler. Just look at the chart during the last 10 minutes of trading. 1.1m shares purchased after the tiny traded walkdown through the day drove the price up from 9.78 to 10.10 at the close.
is exciting. If Vivus was truly not a good investment at this stage, none of these bashers would be here at this time. Click on some of these new names.........anything with a henry (hen) in it including heinrich. Any name with a cleft, they have all just been created in the last couple of days. Oh and don't miss clicking on fraurelliosbourne who's moniker was just created 36 hours ago and now has 72 posts all across the Yahoo Message Board. Just an onslaught of of paid bashing by an orchestrated group or groups who knows something big is coming down the pike for Vivus, and their goose is soon to be cooked. At this stage, these bashing groups are looking like awfully poor poker players. The frequency and silly one liners are just too much for any cred. I've never believed this MB can move any stock price but with this frequency of paid bashers, you have to wonder if the retail sector is now scooping up shares because of this onslaught of pathetic transparent bashing.
shaggy, you're absolutely correct about the 13% interest rate due to Pharmakon on only $50m of the $110m tranche. Shorts and paid bashers (slimy little devils) will lie all the time to advance their agenda. Lying is what they are paid to do and on a message board like this, it goes widely unnoticed or noticed if you will. Since the lying has picked up at such a feverish pace as of late, looks like Vivus and their beloved Q is on to something (which of course most longs have known all along). Good luck to you and please keep up the cerebral postings. Much appreciated.
Exactly right shaggy. And the elephant who just showed up in the room in the past ten days is the two patent extensions through 2029 which many a short didn't see coming. So things can move rather quickly going forward for these slimy little rascals who've held on just a little too long. I liken this situation the shorts are now in to the heavy gloomy rains that bring out all the earthworms on the sidewalks and driveways just to see the sun come out quicker than they were used to, and be roasted in place. Sometimes the sun comes out so quick and sustained that it dries them up in place and sticks them to the concrete. The poor invertebrates didn't see it coming. They thought the rain would last forever.
Man, you are one scared short. You've posted here in the past but have never been this prevalent with your spew. Good luck with that.
All good shaggy, thanks. And by the way, the only fibs being told are on this message board, and most of these fibs are told by posters who are paid to do so. The rest of the lying fibbers are wacked out, narcissistic ARNA longs who are bashing VVUS which of course doesn't make any sense at all because what's good for the goose in this new area of health is good for the gander. Eventually they'll learn this, but will take quite a while.
In addition to this shaggy, I believe we will see additional insurance coverage announced in the next 2-3 weeks, bringing total coverage from 38% to 50%. Should see a $2 spike in share price with this announcement.
Always remember papkena, every company who makes a product has schum b_a_gs like booby following them and challenging patents. This poor sap is just smitten to the folks that pay him a small pittance for his silly drivel so they can try to keep the short train runnin'. It would suck to be in that position.
Go to Vivus website then mouse over investors, click on Financial Information then look for SEC Filings over in right search box. Click on SEC Filings and you will find it there.
OMG bobby, you're now trolling the board and giving your 2 cents per bash on additional topics other than your bogus patent lies. booby, you need to find another line of work cuz this one isn't working out very well for you. You should try your hand at carving soap animals for the tourists in Indonesia. They're a real big hit and it may help put food on your table.
Man, Bob, you're trying to work it hard for somebody. You're crazier than a #$%$ house rat. Didn't go your way today with the US patents so, you think you'll bring up the EU now. What a loser.
wheelerdealer......I have read the same as far as Medicare/Medicaid issuing new drug acceptance in the month of February but can't seem to find this information again. Are you able to provide additional information to this fact?
Man......you don't want to read this if you're holding ARNA.
