i never really bought into this Teva buyout of OPK but there are so many interesting things going on with these two. Read up on CoCrystal on the OPK website.
I'm still trying to wrap my arms Frost swooping in a grabbing PBLR when their deal with Teva fell
through. There are a few things I like to know; what went on behind the doors of the Teva boardroom when they were discussing the PBLR deal? Was Frost for it? Was the Teva board before hand informed that Frost was cutting a deal through OPK? Why didn't Teva counter? Did Teva let the deal happen with the thought of owning OPK in the future or is the board divided and trying to counter the enormous weight of Frost? Wouldn't Dr Jane make a great CEO of Teva / OPK? They could run it out of Miami. It would be OPK taking over Teva and keeping the Teva name.
Can't tell you how painful it was buying at $3 and selling 1/2 the position at $39, its just killing me.
what a sad and pathetic person you are
AAPL wants the right to STEAL from others and protection from being robbed, what a wonderful world we live in.
The FDA knows ALL and is ALL so it should be obvious that triglyceride's have no effect on cardio health.
Can anyone help me here, are high tri's linked to increased inflammation in the body?
Finally, it is here, the drill will finally be turning in Angola. I have waited for this day since I first bought the shares when the ticker had an OB after it. Management has its chance to make up for all the dry holes, huge salaries, and the underwater share price from Nanes buyout offer if they can actually , you know, FIND THE OIL.
One has to be extremely careful about what one says to the FDA publicly. There are decisions going on with the FDA and you won't hear a peep about it from AMRN. The FDA can easily approve this in Dec because they can do whatever they want to do.
I worked in the pharma business and while I never had contact with the FDA I had a friend who did. Whatever went on with the FDA went through her and I can tell you flat out you don't mess with the FDA never, ever. You can absolutely speak your mind to them behind closed doors but never publicly.
Great stuff but it doesn't change the fact that this is a government agency and it changes the rules where it
sees fit. See the waiver the congress gave itself regarding signing up for Obamacare. This is in violation of the constitution but who cares. Unfortunately everyone in Washington is looking out for themselves and what's in it for them and doing what's right for the American people be damned. Some of the money made shorting AMRN has found its way back to Washington, kind of like a toll that has to be paid. Its not an accident that Washington has experienced a real estate boom (that continues today) while the rest of the country has suffered a severe correction. My generation and the one before me is driving this country straight to hell, how truly pathetic we've become.
Might be time for management to explore other options. Guidance (no pun intended) for next year was trepid at best. You'll remember, last Q management felt the business had hit a low and sounded optimistic going forward with the new lines. I had hoped for more but I'm not surprised, growth has been difficult to get.
Is it time to put a FOR SALE sign out in front of the building? I bought below $8 and felt the company was worth $15-$18 in a buyout.
So what you are saying is that the Fed is raiding an investment trust by using its reserved gold to cover demands . Further, this gold manipulation ends when GLD runs out of gold, which will then completely exposes their manipulation which in turn will send gold soaring to the heavens. The holders of GLD will be left holding a worthless piece of paper
because they have no gold (as the price of gold soars) exposing JPM / Fed / taxpayers to a massive class action lawsuit.
Please that is total bunk @ $22.50 no less. Frost could not buy on the open market if there were discussions. OPK buying Teva would be a much more likely outcome down the road.
The FDA recently approved a new pain med almost as addicting as heroin. This approval happened in spite
of a 11-2 thumbs down vote. Having said that, rescinding the SPA for Vascepa after the fact appears to dash any hope of that happening. I don't know how you can rescind the SPA after the company did everything necessary to get approval two months before you were set to rule. Obviously the company never would have done Anchor without crystal clear guidelines from the FDA, what a complete waste of money Unfortunately this is our government hard at work changing the rules when it sees fit. From the IRS to the NSA to Obama care to the FDA, this is one is giant clusterf--k.
Let me get this straight, the FDA approves ARNA's weight loss drug which has major side effects and minimal
weight loss benefits yet AMRN gets the hook. I get the FDA's position, that don't have scientific evidence that lowing Tri's 200 -
Infringe on one of the bigs boys patents and they haul your butt into court. When they do it they run to Washington crying for help. If the US patent office issues a patent then that company owns it.
and that company has every right under our laws to seek court help to enforce those patents. AAPL has
been found guilty, by a jury of their peers, to be infringing on VHC patents, period.
Boris. what are you thinking, before the bell or after for Judge Davis to issue ruling today? AAPL's arrogance probably didn't play too well with the Judge and now they will pay.
I guess we're going to see if all AAPL's money can buy them a win on appeal. Legally they are toast, but this is America and funny things happen when the cash is flowing. Sadly, I see this as the biggest risk with owning VHC stock.
It SO easy to blame the CEO for the share price depreciation because its really the most important metric for success or failure as a CEO. But its not the only one. The company is currently selling a .39x sales with growing production and falling recovery costs. The company is close to bringing the Satoy Gap fully online
(2014) which is a significant achievement. Cash is obviously an issue but at least we are cash flow positive and the big investment bringing the Gap online is behind us.
As for the delisting, they had few good choices. If they can get significant production gains in 2014 as predicted and gold doesn't fall off the cliff, then CGR will be just fine. I can't believe some major or a minor doesn't take this out at a big discount. We will probably go lower but a floor will be established soon.
we did not get another lift in the 3rd Q. Latest lift was logged in on 10/01/13 so 3rd Q earnings will not be good, again, and again. and again, and again, and again, and again, and again
At what point do these people do the right thing and step down? They've milked this company for years. Do they not have a shred of integrity? Nanes offered $7.50 in 2007 and here we are today in 2013 at $5.40. They've paid themselves meantime millions of dollars, spent $10's of millions on buybacks for shares they have gone right back into managements' pockets. This is way beyond immoral, its time or these people to do the right thing and step aside.
