sorry. I should have prefaced that with an IF. I do not ever think it will be 200 a share. but, IF it did, then my previous statement stands. 200... please. whats that? 50 billion market cap. Something like that. I suppose there will one day be a new 50 billion dollar pharma. And I suppose it could be ARNA. If anyone wants, they can buy some ARNA shares from me for 100 dollars and if they should ever reach 200, I will buy them back for 300. easy money there.
I've noticed you and your other self, hankg1030, have been spending a lot of time recently replying to me. On the oft chance you are not he and he is not you I want to reiterate my stance once more for the benefit of "both" of you: I am hetero. I'm not interested.
thank you so much for pointing out my spelling error. I'm sure it brought you much joy, and I'm sure it struck some people as funny. I don't profess to be the best spellir in the wurld. But, I'm glad there are spelling-knotzis that will help guide me along this difficult path. I think you'd agree... or maybe not... that your gotcha-moment is petty.
I'm more than happy to offer you an opinion. I don't need to pull up a 1 year chart with the typical 50 and 200 day (note: i clarified day for you, as its also possible to chart those averages by week or any iteration you desire... sorry, that was rather petty) because I always have at least one chart that has ARNA on my screen and as you rightly noted it is pretty typical to have the 50 and 200 day moving averages on your chart.
Technically it looks bad just looking at the 200 and 50. price is below both and when ARNA peaked above the 50 this morning it retreated in haste. The 50 is also below the 200. But, I'm not your traditional technician. I try to look at the broad picture and use fundamentals, real time data and technicals to make investing decisions.
I've recently stated that I think ARNA will be range bound somewhere around the price it is at right now until the sales of Belviq make any future dilution a non-issue. Technically, I like the potential for a double bottom trade. I don't see the price falling much further than we've seen recently if at all. I'd really like to see the 50 passing through the 200. But that isn't going to happen any time soon. But, to answer your question: it looks very bearish to me. But, nothing is forever, who knows, maybe this is the "bottom". However the 200 and 50 day moving averages aren't going to tell us that... those 2 averages are kind of hind-sight in my opinion. Might want to combine those with MACD and RSI or others to help you get a read on what may come in the near future.
when this stock is at 200 dollars per share the activity on this message board will look like the GE message board. crickets...
Wasn't this 19% over a holiday shortened week? I'm not knocking the number at all, but I have a hard time drawing a correlation between "prime time" advertising and today's IMS/Symphony numbers. Any advertising is going to be a good thing. And advertising that costs more is usually more costly for a reason (because it will provide more results.. hopefully). But, I wouldn't expect any advertising, on any special TV show, or any special time slot to generate sales for a pharmaceutical product within 7 days. Most people can't even get a doctors appointment within 7 days. And the type of advertising you are seeing isn't to generate immediate gratification for shareholders. Its a long and slow slog to build a brand name. The results are not going to be instant. that is why I laugh at the people that are making fun of Eisai for spending money on advertising that is "apparently not working" according to them. It is working. Just like all advertising works. I don't have a need for ServePro, but should I ever have a flood in my house or need a murder victim cleaned up... I know who to call!
you know I couldn't resist putting my best foot forward on this one. Door was wide open. I think vanmusicblues might be AF, judging by the stupid comments the two have made today on various mediums.
"bought" what does that mean? Additional short? So, you are saying you SOLD some shares yesterday, and then you bought them back today? Assuming, like everyone else on this message board, you timed this all perfectly at the highs and lows you made a whopping 8 cents on the trade? I like opposing viewpoints, but #$%$ artists are just that. B.S.
by the way.. you don't buy a short. Are you buying weekly put options again?. Is that what you are doing, van? buying puts.. and then trying to make it sound like you have the credit to open a margin account that will let you actually short a stock? I hardly doubt, especially given the volatility the last 2 days, that your puts have increased in value over the course of 2 days. Whatever makes you feel like a big man is ok with me though.
that would have been a very strange press release. Not sure it would have had the intended results you were looking for. But hey! thanks for answering my question.
I've seen ARNA do this before. While I don't watch a lot of stocks that are of ARNA's status, I've never seen another stock go up 10% and then turn red in the same day... with 3 hours of trading left. Very strange. Maybe Arena can sponser a new roller coaster at Sea World.
if you're a fan of "naked and afraid" a guy brought a roll of duct tape as his tool. I was thrilled to see such foresight from the usual sharp blade thinking. Kind of like Wheel of Fortune's R-S-T-L-N-E. Too bad he used it in all the wrong ways...
You have to remember these aren't "real" numbers. Its like a political poll in a lot of ways. And you also have to remember that like a political poll, the methodology is going to be different depending on who conducts the poll just like you will see different numbers from a CNN poll vs a Fox poll. However, what is more important, assuming the methodology remains constant week over week, you can use the numbers from one source to compare it to the same source over a given period of time. They are both probably pretty close to actual numbers. Might be more might be less. But, I wouldn't try to draw too many conclusions in comparing the numbers of IMS vs Symphony. Just look for trends and compare the "polling" numbers to the numbers each company releases in their conference calls.
I asked you yesterday, when you made this profound announcement, what did you want ARNA management to say? Did you want them to make something up? Lie? Reiterate old news? Speculate? Read the weather report? what?
You have to admit there are quite a few uses for duct tape. A genuine do-anything tool.
delayed? did you pay some money for this research that entitles you to prompt notification on a weekly basis. There is no delay... the fact that you get the scraps off the table at all should only bring about a sense of gratitude.
