You folks are imbecilic! It's been out the gate since June 2013 a mere 3 months, has a huge massive $$$$ conglomerate big pharma partner with ultimate marketing epertise and resources, and has a novel drug that not only sheds pounds big time but also alters eating habits (the most difficult part of any diet regime) and provides huge benefits for diabetic illnesses. Add to that major innovation developing in a truly scientific pipeline of new drugs and Arena is a stellar company heading down a stellar path to success!!! You Vivus diehards have already paid and paid huge dropping from high of $31.25 to now $11 and you are scoriating Arena???? I feel for you that truly could not see the writing on the wall which was clear to anyone with 1/2 brain that combining Phen/Topiromate was a disasterous result just from known scientific evidence of the combined compounds long ago patented and marketed as separate compounds. Folks holding ARNA must just relax and sit tight as masssive $$$$$$ big time bio partner stages drug forward systematically developing market share and KNOW us that post on message boards have NOTHING better to do for no company, MM, Hedgie or anyone of significance regarding actual SP functioning EVER reads these boards. So we must suffer the lonely lives we have together with nothing else to do but showcase our supposedly genius on the board but KNOW Easai/Arena are undertaking very serious moves toward success while Vivus is truly sinking!
The biggest negative with V is V itself! You cite negative postings on a meaningless stock message board but fail to allude to the aboslute horrific negatives of Vivus real time such as $2 drop in two days, $20 drop off $31.25 high, board takeover by FMC, two CEO's in less than 2 months following proxy takeover, and glaring fact that analyst overall stand firm there will be no partner for Qysmia and no partner for Stendra. Read up just a bit and learn analysts overall believe Qysmia not patentable due to use of two already patented drugs and any such attempt to patent will meet costly time consuming legal battles. Add to that analyst overall belief Stendra also not patentable due to Viagra and Cialis nearing end of patent protection periods therein setting stage for massive influx of generics. These are facts yet you expect ARNA holders to sit by idly as the Icahn/Keating/Cramer - Milken criminal regimes play their games exactly as foretold in Deep Capture The Dendreon Story. They haven't missed a beat pumping the obviously fake science firm Vivus while naking shorting the real science entity Arena. I suggest you Vivus diehards stop posting nonsense about a partner until such time you can cite facts naming said partners. Arena on the other hand has had very large, very successfuly, very wealthy, very resource laden big $$$$$$ partner from day one and Easai is no slouch in this 'arena.' Yet we are forced to deal day in and day out with the Deep Capture cast of criminals now at work against Arena. You will learn a hard lesson here though as Easai did not buy in naively and fully understands the leval of criminality at work in your endeavors. Won't work this time bet on it.
I just told you why. Seeking Alpha (Spencer Osborne) is obviously functioning against ARNA as The Cancer Letter intentionally did a the direction of the Icahn/Milken/Keating/Cramer criminal regimes. The exact game plan is unfolding here with one big exception 'retail ARNA longs are not selling nor will we.' To reiterate (you really should spend the time to read Deep Capture to see what same cast of criminals is doing here with Vivus the fake science firm) they run her up on PIPE which has already been done round one for Vivus. Following PIPE the cast of criminals then will take profits on SP rise resultant from suckers that bought following fake PIPE run up while the cast of criminals concurrently naked short ARNA to death, but Round II of the PIPE run up at Vivus is to eventually naked short that pup back down to point where next round of PIPE is laid coming real soon for Vivus. And remember the same Deep Capture cast of criminals have been openly named here with Icahn indeed onBOARD and Cramer working his lies constantly. The other problem the cast of criminals have is that Easai/Arena management are well onto the cherades they play and are doing what any truly solid company will do and that is continue laying seeds to build market share to point the criminals games become meaningless. Retail long dedicated holders along with massive $$$$$$ multinational big pharma Easai partner aggressively planting seeds for long term growth of obviously blockbuster new drug is what will eliminate the Icahn/Milken criminal regime in this case. So you Vivus diehards need to be constantly chastised for your coattail approach attempting to time it all right with the big time criminals hoping to churn a few bucks here and there at the cost of the real science company ARNA in this case. Sorry won't work and this board needs to be constantly reminded of just how well Easai/Arena management are onto the scams.
Doubt that very seriously and 2013 still has a long way to run. Vivus is the best contender for worst company of the year and likely ever in bio. Vivus is a sure short at this juncture if you want to rake in some big $$$$$
I think they are doing it and in just the right fashion. People are unreasonable here not truly acknowledging true short time it's been on market and fact Easai is huge $$$$$$ conglomerate with very powerful resources all just coming into play. Problem here are fhe flipper/dippers wanting to take quick profits then move on to next play then come back if waters look good for another fix etc. This is not one of those kinds of stocks and Easai is a very resourceful firm with a very aggressive long range plan and surely they would not have put themselves here unless they knew the forecasted outcomes were highly likely to attain.
But then dude that big $$$$$ multinational big pharma partner is reality unlike your beloved Vivus that is on a real downward sustained trend. You bafoons are addressing market share with Belviq out the gate only since June with that massive big $$$$$$ partner running the show. Come back when you grow up boy and take a look at things then when the marketing efforts of the Easai pros are set in motion.
You should just do minimal research on Seth Fisher to KNOW J&J divested of him and the entire division due to lackluster sales and massive drop in market share. That's what you and Motley Fool call high calibre??
Stock is trading down dude $2 in just 2 days and so far off the $31.25 high that regaining that posture is all but GONE! Vivus is doomed and if you are not sharp enough to read the writing on the wall then go ahead and buy buy buy. I will be simultaneously shorting big time.
Laughable to think they ran Vivus up today whopping $.11 on all the good news! So Seeking Alpha now running the Dendreon parallel to The Cancer Letter hit piece vehicle of the Icahn/Keating/Cramer-Milken crime machine against ARNA. It's hilarious to watch these bafoons as if they believe those of us in the 'real know zone' don't see right through their shenanigans. Or could it be the very positive news that Vivus has it's second new CEO in just months? Or the great news it's been down over $2 in the last 2 days? Or that it's down over $20 from all time high of $31.25? Wow such wonderful news yet Spencer Osborne writing for the Milken crime regime The Cancer Letter now known as Seeking Alpha prefers to attack ARNA the one with the big $$$$$$ multinational big pharma conglomerate partner that has only begun setting the seeds for market share since June 2013 and has many more resources available and at work to set the trend in motion. You have to be a complete moron to buy Vivus and latch on to this group of bafoons at The Cancer Letter now Seeking Alpha (i.e. Spencer Osborne and cast) and not be looking right throught them. Again folks spend your time reading the 48,000 word Deep Capture where Ichan/'Keating/Cramer/Birtiromo-Milken mafia machine is openly cited for their criminal activities and half just half a brain to realzie Seeking Alpah is indeed the new vehicle to pump uf the fake science firms (Vivus here) while they simultaneously nake short ARNA (and coming again real soon even Vivus) to the death spirals they so love to manipulate and reap stolen monies over and over in their mafiosos crimen laden thieveries. Wow you have to be blind not to see and to buy this nonsense with Vivus down $2 over the last two days regaining a whopping $.22 (that's 22 cents today.) HA! Add to that Seth Fischer the new CEO was dumped by J&J along with the entire segment he headed for massive drops in sales and market share to the point J&J divested of him and the division !!!
Been out of the gate 3 months dude with big $$$$$$ multinational partner. Whine all you want but in the end small time shorty takes it in the rumpter! This is a fun game especially with all the manipulation but in the end historically, statistically and factually small retail shorties lose and lose big. So those are the true numbers relative here and Easai is a big time player in this 'arena!'
Fat chance! Time will surely tell but I say this pup is doomed. All one has to do is think of the times in their own lives they put heavy weight on 'estimates' that just never seemed to turn out. All the FACTS here bemoan Vivus is in big big trouble.
Go look at Vivus Dude that's the big short $$$$$$ here. ARNA only out gate since June and has massive big $$$$$$ partner for which VVUS/OREX never will. You must be really blind or big time short ARNA with nowhere to go but under!!!
But then they all work in collussion to rake in massive profits manipulating PIPE in collussion with massive naked short selling. You really need to read Deep Capture for all these criminal machines are openly cited. The folks are making progess however with machine algorithm transactions down over 2/3 what they once were. Folks need to keep the heat on to get these criminals out of the way so the markets represent a great vehicle for individual citizens to invest and make money. To reiterate the last generation is replete with success stories of ESOP plan holders ending with millions$$$$$ in shares many P&G, Kelloggs etc for which these thieves of today (i.e. Milken/Icahn/Keating/Cramer/Birtiromo etc. etc.) have severely damaged but we the folks have awakened and are keeping the heat on. Obama of course is a major setback (i.e. alterring Stock Act 4/13 enhancing Congresional insider trading) but then we know he/they in the DC band of politco criminals seek complete redistribution of any wealth we have while colluding with the mafia criminal regime to ensure such outcomes are achieved. I think we take them down in the end and we should begin with the simpler targets such as Seeking Alpha, Jim Cramer, Spencer Osborne etc.
You better go look at your beloved Vivus (you and Spencer Osborne) for that baby is in real serious damage control mode. Also look into new CEO Seth Fischer who was dumped by J&J along with the entire segment he headed for lackluster sales. Spencer Osborne and Seeking Alpha are obviously a criminal rag in the likes of The Cancer Letter so effectively used by the Milken/Ichan/Keating/Cramer/Biriromo mafia linked crime machine to all but destroy Dendreon. Easai/Arena are well hip to their cherades and are working Belviq the right way slowly building market share and gearing for the soon coming end of the Obama regime and some serious USA growth!!
Just as predicted Spencer's weekly SA hit job just landed. Below is cut & paste of some of the nonsense. Keep in mind Vivus is undergoing massive criminal activity yet Spence hits on ARNA. Spence and Seeking Alpha are definitely the parallel to The Cancer Letter Milken/Icahn/Cramer rag that so successfully did hit jobs on Dendreon week in and week out if not daily. Remember formost ARNA has only been out the gate since June and Easai is a deep pocket $$$$$$ partner for which VVUS/OREX have none and never will. This is classic Milken style mafioso manipulation and Spencer SA are definitely The Cancer Letter parralel to Dendreon's ongoing attempte destruction. These are thieves of magnitude only known to the mob and now with Obama collussion (i.e. altering Stock Act 4/13 to make Congressional insider trading legal and simpler.)
Weekly scripts were essentially flat week over week according to IMS. One popular theory as to the flat cycle is due to the Labor Day holiday. While the holiday was on the Monday after the reported weekly numbers, it is a very popular vacation week.
While the holiday theory does hold water, and will likely impact the next set of numbers as well, there are some things to consider. First is that holding the line during a holiday period is a good thing. Secondly, and perhaps more important, is that we still need to see script growth. There will always be holiday's, seasonality, and hurdles all along the way. Successful sales traction overcomes these things.
Yes and that can be quickly accomplished over at Vivus unless you're smart enough to short that pump down to it's coming death!!!
How about providing the details? Any firm that would pay $17 for this mess must be a criminal regime attempting ploy to sucker in more suckers believe they can milk it hard enough on the other side to recoup all invested or your comments are pure BS (highly likely.) Funny no mention on JNJ or AZN sites however J&J does mention the sector they just dumped that Seth Fischer ran. HA!
On that one trade! He/She is a fool or manipulator attempting set up for next scam here on Vivus. You too must be completely naive. By January 2015 Vivus will be long gone and that includes Stendra The Weiner the World Never Awaited!
Only been out the gate since June sir and considering the horrific Obama economy this is setting up nicely. Easai is deep pocket $$$$$ and knows what they are doing and exactly how to stage this in such horrific economic conditions. Once all the Obama nonsense settles down (Obamacare coming to a head soon) and we get folks truly working again (not fake employment numbers as again cited this week by Obama) but real jobs. Fact is the Obama way of counting unemployed does not consider those that have dropped off unemployment roles but still remain unemployed (real rate 17%+) nor do they mention 2/3 of all jobs they've created are part time. Once all this nonsense is gone (hopefully 2016 unless nation naive enough to seat dem Obama replica Hilary Bilary) ARNA will rocket! Easai/Arena know exactly now this all plays in and are taking steps now to methodically stage Belviq as the next blockbuster drug!!!!
