You actually can post that with a straight face? ARNA is holding firm? What part of falling from 4 dollars to 2.70 in the course of 30 days is "holding firm" while at the same time broad markets have fallen roughly 10-12%?
"...slow miserable death of their own choosing"
That is what is driving up the cost of healthcare for EVERYONE. Most obese people get along in life just fine by taking the medications they need to take to stay alive. Problem is, a pill wont fix the weight problem for most of them because the pill has to be taken in conjunction with diet and exercise. And considering the modest responder rate of Belviq, diet and exercise needs to be the priority if the pill helps then GREAT, but if it doesn't then they should just give up and go back to their own life. They need to learn how to eat. Not have some drug that fools them. If they don't take it serious, then they will not succeed.
S9, i think the issue is that you are jealous that there are real people on this message board that use it for COMMUNICATION. Not just as a pumping station for your failed investment. You see, even in this thread alone (which is now one of the most popular threads) you have people discussing politics, and fishing and dinners. A community of people, that communicate together. Isn't that wonderful? Isn't that what the internet is for? I'm glad I apparently had 130 posts the past week. Not sure of the accuracy as Yahoo says I have 270 for the last 3 months. Maybe I was that active last week? But not all of it was me bashing your little stock symbol. You should try to open up a little. Go beyond "Jack Lief is great" and "Sauve9 The Great" and join the human race.
I'm not scared of butter. though I am a butter snob and only use Kerrygold. I'm not in the camp that thinks fat is bad. I wouldn't use olive oil with mussels though. a little homemade fish broth, butter, mussels, calamari, a little sea bass and prosciutto with some garlic and basil. I don't know what you call that but its what I'm having.Something I whip up every now and then. I'll take my wine on the side. 2 glasses even.
stick to what you're good at SV: BS spinster is all you are good at. TA is clearly not your forte.
you look through a peep hole. try looking in the whole window. how about shares outstanding? I'm sure you are in the camp that doesn't pay any attention to things like that. But, it means a lot. How about how many shares are held by insiders. I'm sure that means nothing to you too. But, it means a lot.
Your narrow view on the employee and R&D expenditures only tells me one thing. Admin is in line with spending and the grunt workers are under payed. Sounds like a lousy place to make a living unless you have a corner office. Now, don't get your panties in a bunch, S9. I agree it CAN show ARNA has aspects of its spending in check. Except for the fact that there have been 3 dillutions in 3 years. over 240 million shares on the market and its one commercial product is a failure. Oh, and a operating cash flow of NEGATIVE 105 million dollars
Like I said, you have to look through the whole window. Not just the parts that havn't yet been smeared with grime. But, I do admire your determination to paint ARNA as some kind of model public corporation all should aspire to be.
