Apparently you and others here did but 'I' didn't get anything in my Yahoo reader today. I'm not subscribed/interconnected to all these sites like others here. I just sit n wait for the standard public Co news releases...
Googling the above turns out to be a paid only web site using a login id & password. Please state briefly your point of referencing it and the date of the actual article (not the web site link).
My two cents continues to be Savient would not have announced to wall street it's doing this initial 'K' & dialysis study unless it is worth doing. AND we still haven't seen the results yet. Due anytime.
This other claim of bopy's that potential "label expansion has been shelved because they don't have funds" is partially true as per Savient's previous Conf Calls and most likely stated in one of the Sec docs - can't quote which one at the moment. Partially true because I don't recall Savient using the word "shelved". To me "shelved" conjures up a permanency not intended. I think the intent is to finish the current study and wait until more money is available to PROCEED on the potential of 'label expansion'.
goog, could you please provide a reference to this article and it's date? I've tried googling what you've provided with only wild goose chase. IF recent, I'd like to study the entire article. Thx, KG
I agree with MC. When you look at the numbers, it's hard to see where/how SVNT won't eventually come out of this on top and therefore commands a significantly higher valuation that this board gives it credit for. kg
Interesting numbers from the both saunder's and bopy's posted articles, "About 8 million" (date?) and (Aug 2011) "3% of gout sufferers who don't respond to other methods of uric acid reduction".
3% X 8 million = 240,000 potential USA RCG 'K' pts X $5400 (1 dose) = $1,296,000,000
3% X 8 million = 240,000 potential USA RCG 'K' pts X $2900 (approx reimb per dose) = $696,000,000
Of course these are old articles. But, where/how did everyone go so wrong? (everyone being wall street, medical professionals, the Savient Co, etc)
OF course we know that the latest USA RCG 'K' population is published to be approx 9000 pts (see latest 10Q). 9000 pts is enough for SVNT to be on course to become BE and climb out of debt. The question is, ARE WE, WILL WE, IS THIS HAPPENING NOW?
9000 potential USA RCG 'K' pts X $2900 (approx reimb per dose) = $26,100,000 !!!! (1 dose per pt)
Hi grandy, not nice to see you ya old SVNT Short Bashing devil (oh, I mean champy, hey, hey).
Just a quick note to thank you and acknowledge this is a very good post of yours. Yesterday I reviewed your numbers in detail and wrote quite a Reply but do not see it today. I agree with the 9K pts and everything you've concluded and think quite reasonable as a baseline for SVNT's true value from perspective of an acquisition or partner/merger. Thx and please stick around. kg
I don't see any dates indicating as you say, "concluded" or "comatose". Hopefully Savient will release the long overdue results of the overall study soon...
Thx for pasting this Don. Many of us have probably read this in the past but I myself can't remember and greatly thankful to those that refresh my memory. Can you tell us what was the DATE of the article and did it by any chance give START and END date(s) for the study?
Keep the Faith, Long n Strong SVNT, kg
you're on IGNORE now. I know, this just gives you more free reign to get out of your crib and act up. That's OK, the bd can take over keeping you in line. I'll be around. kg
Hey kamp, I got a novel idea, let's you and I just put stashy on IGNORE. Then all his SVNT short bashing posts won't have anyone to argue with and won't keep elevating to the top of the queue, ha! kg
The Fed's indecision and worries about Govt shutdown. Might be time to sell some winners this year. My SVNT I'm holding onto come hell or high water... kg
proby, if after what I explained to you above you still think you're "on to something", then you deserve the big IGNORE. Buy Bill Sander, ha!
Hey Doug Beriman, Fred or big daddy Jack, (am I getting hot?!)
First off, anybody that's been on this bd for any length of time longer than you knows me for being NONE of the things you're guessing I am. You have GUESSED me totally wrong, ha!
1) since Yahoo started msg bds I've maintained one (1) and only one (1) msg bd id and that's KG2931. I don't even know how to start a 2nd id and have never cared to do so.
2) I never write anything on this bd trying to "fool" others, particularly "newbies", into making their "decision to buy or sell this stock on anything" I write. I do welcome and encourage newbie Longs and descent trading folks from time to time.
3) I also "don't work for anyone" and I also "spend my own money" and have spent and hold $98K of this SVNT stock! I am not a paid message boarder, ha! and anyone that's followed me a while will conclude that, that is if they want to and have an ounce of common sense!
4) As I explained before, I have legitimate reasons for occasionally using the salutation that I do. One is to get newbies like this Billsaunders to see I've been around SVNT(BTGC) a LONG time and to back off before he alienates himself from this board for good.
