Some of those REGN shorts have been sitting since $33/share. Looks like their retirements are over. Let's see where MNKD is in four years? The shorts and Adam will be dancing around like G string fairies after they lose their pants. Patience is a virtue!
to. The world is full of obese, sickly people. Sell to the masses of circus creatures!
I don't look much at the technicals when determining if a buyout may happen. I look at the BOD influence and the fact that this stock is way oversold. Not to mention that Endo has doubled its salesforce to sell Stendra that is sitting in stock because Auxilium did not optimize its sales strategy for maximum revenue. This is delayed revenue to Vivus. Once Stendra sales channel is fully utilized globally then Vivus should see a nice spike in revenue numbers. It does make sense that Endo would make an offer for Stendra but how about Q and the other pipeline products? In addition, the activist board has to be majorly disappointed that their investment in Vivus has gone so low therefore a buyout is certainly not out of the cards. Vivus has a good fundamental business model and you can bet that the BOD is cleaning up the balance sheets making an acquisition highly probable even if it's sold off in pieces. At this price point Vivus is a pretty good bet for Longs.
Good find! Is that the same as the patent listed in this link?

Going back a couple of months to this Endo article makes it crystal clear the VVUS options
I agree with you Pmt. The BOD is examining all options at this time. I wouldn't be surprised if a large catalyst is brewing and announced soon. If scripts are going up on both products and costs continue to decrease then this company is very ripe for picking.
Oops, the cigars just got delivered. Need to focus on a sunny afternoon now.
There were a few orders sitting in at 1.07. I put mine in at 3:56 and got filled. A huge purchase block is sitting in at 1.04. I think tomorrow should be a nice up day!
Excellent update! Two friends that I recommended Afrezza to are now using the prescription and have always thanked me for the referral when I bump into them.
authorities. Here's a professional tip Adam; go back and use your political science degree. Your lips are more suitable in that arena.
are too weak to blow this brick mansion down :)
Oh, there you are Kliff - giving me the thumbs down just like you gave Afrezza. How about fixing your teeth after you take your Prozac?
Forbes is desperate. They tried to get me to buy their crummy subscription. I like reading Fortune and have supported them for 24 years. I recycled the numerous Forbes offers of 'get three years of reports and delivery for $20....a great deal off the stand price of $5.95 a monthly issue'.
Kliff should learn to read and understand why Mannkind upped its production schedule to meet upcoming demand. Hello Kliff, did you not take your medication this past year?
it's the bullies that are now picking on his kids incessantly that will cause AF health to fail. He will not be sleeping well for a very long time. He will suffer a heart attack within a year's time. He will try to blame it all on everyone else but the fingers point right back. Unfortunately he brought this misery and shame on himself. Hopefully he can learn to straighten himself out and quit bullying pharma stocks and then hiding behind skirts.
morons are saying short term. If you are a true Long then you will hold for awhile and be patient. Companies like Regeneron did not explode out of the gate. Give it a few years, enjoy life, and watch the growth happen. Your smile will grow longer and the world will be a better place. I know that I'm holding and trust that this company will do just fine! Al is doing his work for his rewards in his next world. I'm happily watching this nice business model roll out. So I lose a few bucks in the short term. Endless gains are what the Shorts are panicking about. Do you actually think the Shorts are sleeping as well at night as I am?
