  • This isn't rocket science. In fact it's a simple equation really. I picked up some nice walking around money this morning because Ariad is perhaps the worst biotech company ever to enter the space. It was never designed to do anything really except make a small fortune for founder Harvey Berger and his nefarious cronies. UNDER ACHIEVEMENT has been the mantra of this company since its inception and that will be its legacy.

    You've got two types of poster on this message board. Those who made a bad investment decision, are incredible naïve and who want to sit around in a circle jerk all day trying to justify that decision. Then there are the paid pumpers who want to maintain life in their squalid living quarters and, to do so, must make a minimum number of posts per day. It's the same old stuff day after day from these guys and, did you notice, they are always wrong. But they will try to get you to believe that they have unlimited resources and can keep buying more and more shares as the price declines. Also they are not worried about 2018 being three years away.They don't have to worry about money. You see, they are already incredibly wealthy and successful. HA!

    First rule of successful investing: Don't lose money.
    Second rule: Don't fall in love with a bad stock/investment decision and try to justify your mistake.
    Third rule: See one above.

    Sentiment: Strong Sell

    For the love of god people, do yourselves a favor and short Ariad ahead of their earnings' report. Just do 1000 shares or so, make yourself a little walking around money and then cover if that's what you feel like doing. I'm not just blowing smoke here. Check the charts for the last 5 - the last 10 years. Ariad almost always declines after releasing their earnings because it's a sorry company, perhaps the worst in the biotech space.

    So, word up. Excellent money making opportunity that you can cash in during tomorrow's trading day.

    Sentiment: Strong Sell

  • Morons. Ariad is a broken company struggling to stay afloat. Buyout interest by big pharma is nil. Dr. Reddy's Lab, an Indian pharmaceutical company, had a $5.00 per share offer on the table which Ariad initially rejected but then reconsidered. Upon informing Dr. Reddy's Lab that they had reconsidered the offer, Reddy crunched the numbers and withdrew the offer plunging Denner and members of the Ariad board into despair.

    In his interview with Meg Tirell, Harvey Berger said, "We are excited about moving forward and becoming profitable in 2018." Whatttt? Nobody's interested in 2018. That was the last straw for Denner and some other large shareholders as Berger was then forced out before he could add a few more of his buddies to the payroll as vice presidents of nothing. Berger has long used the carrot stick approach and gullible, naïve shareholders bought into it, yet Ariad continues, year after year to be the BAD NEWS COMPANY. Always a bridesmaid never a bride. Wayyy too ugly.

    This stock will decline further in the years ahead and then trade sideways until around 2020. Much better places to put your money to work. Pick Ariad and you pick to lose.

    No critical analysis? Well it would use up a lot of bandwidth for me to delineate why Rida was a failed compound, why Pona is so toxic that sales are miniscule, why 113 will be surpassed and rendered obsolete before it is ever developed into a marketable drug. I do my own research + DD and value the opinions of others I trust in the investment and oncology community who provide grist for the mill for me to grind.

    I am a trader and as such I am constantly looking for inefficiencies in the market which I can exploit. So whether long or short a security I will spend what time I have to post on a message board rendering rather emotional arguments for either the potential of a company to appreciate or to depreciate. Ariad is the company I have dealt with for the longest continuous period of time and it just continues to pay off. So everything I post is just opinion based primarily on the research of others. There's plenty of in depth analysis, pro and con, from those folks.

    Meanwhile the market is closed for the weekend. Next week watch for continued erosion in the Ariad share price.

    I gave you credit for having more intelligence than that. Sitting round trying to psychoanalyze a message board poster? You just sound like a bitter and frustrated investor. But, yes, I do enjoy counting my money, especially the incredibly easy money made shorting this waste of a company.

    Enjoy your profits. One thing's for sure - this is the gift that keeps on giving! I'm covering a couple thousand shares this afternoon just for some walking around money this weekend. Don't worry, I'll still have bookoo shares short for the eventual killing but I'll do it slowly because of the tax implications. Always better to ladder in your profits to keep from letting the tax man take credit for your hard work.

    This company is the most unproductive company I can think of. Always over promising and under delivering. Over the years a pattern starts to emerge. To be oblivious to this one would have to be either completely blind or willfully ignorant. There s ZERO interest in this company as a buyout candidate at anything over $5.00 per share and that's where it's headed.

    Harvey Berger telegraphed the future of Ariad during that interview with Meg Tirrell when he said that Ariad hoped to be profitable by 2018. Factor in the inevitable delay on that date and the fact that other pharmas and biotechs will have rendered Ariad's drug candidates obsolete by that time and you have a totally losing investment whether now or in 2020. It's time for the lights to be turned out once and for all on this unproductive, self-serving scam of a company.

    For the love of god use some sense and open up a short position, even a small one, ahead of the Annual shareholders' meeting. It will be the easiest money you ever made. The meeting isn't being held in an attorney's office for no reason. Ariad will, once more, shaft the lowly retail investor by releasing bad news at the meeting. That's all this company has done throughout it's sorry existence.

    Alex Denner has once more screwed up by making a horrible investment decision just as he did with Vivus. The one good thing he did was step in and challenge Harvey Berger, the best friend a short seller ever had. Berger wanted to add even more of his cronies to the Ariad payroll as vice presidents of the "do nothing" department, but at least Denner stepped in and stopped this, threatening legal action if Berger persisted in his blatant pillaging of the Ariad coffers and the hapless, clueless shareholders.

    Here's your chance to finally make some money off this scam company. Short them ahead of the ASM and make a quick, sure profit!

    Now that it is becoming obvious that there will be no buyout of Ariad it will continue to be readjusted to its true value. For some time now I've been predicting that it will go back to the $6.66 level. I now believe that it could go significantly lower than this as Ariad is a badly damaged company that will not recover easily. Ariad management is now searching strictly for a partnership arrangement having pretty much given up on a quick buyout. This partnership will not be favorable for Ariad, of course, of course.

    Alex Denner is quickly becoming a contrarian indicator having screwed up on Vivus and now Ariad.

    Rumor is that Harvey has changed his mind and will fight a tooth and nail legal battle to retain control of the company. That's why the ASM is being held in an attorney's office. Harvey wants to add a few more of his buddies to the payroll as vice presidents! That's why his pseudonym is Dr.Ben Dover!!!

    Word is starting to leak out that this is not going to be good. A lot of the low IQ investors who went long Ariad and who plan on attending the meeting think that when they walk in the attorney's' conference room it will be to the sound of champagne corks popping, confetti falling from the ceiling and a loud voice that announces, "Welcome to the Buyout"!!! You'll then be handed a big check and all your dreams will come true!

    Ridiculous. What will actually happen is a loud voice will announce, "Grab Your Ankles And Spread Em!" That's because it's Ariad, one bummer of a bad luck company throughout its sad history. If Ariad investors haven't lost money because of bad luck they have lost because of deception on the part of Ariad's management. There is a lonnnng history of this. So wait for some EXTREMELY bad news at the ASM. Why else would they move it to an attorney's office? This is about to get ugly- really ugly!

    I'm making good money on this stock today. Are you? You are if you're short. I've been telling you for months (years) to short this POS. This has been my all time biggest money making securities position because it is so reliable. Headed back to $6.66. Still plenty of money to be made.

    All the best,
    Simon

    For knuckleheads only. Short squeeze imminent! Tightly coiled spring waiting to uncoil! Unlimited potential bolstered by unbelievably great pipeline. Think of any more pathetic pumper clichés to throw in?

    Get used to losing money if you're long this anemic joke of a company. One of the all time losers in the market due simply to underperformance by everyone involved with Ariad Pharmaceuticals. You're going to wake up one morning to see the stock price ratchet down into the 7s and then back down to the 6.66 level. This is starting to happen because those punters who went long expecting a quick buyout are starting to realize that there's a long, slow slog ahead. 2018 is the earliest date that this sick man will begin to stir around again. Until then it's down, down, down. Have a great day losers!

    Because Mr. Market knows the company is a scam. In business for 25 years with the share price moribund, actually below the IPO price. Why? Because they've produced knowing of any import, just one toxic drug used on lost cause patients. Other similar, investigational stage biotech companies have run circles around Ariad while it stands there stupidly repeating the same tired song over and over: "I'm going to be great one day. I've got deals in the works." after 25 years the market isn't fooled anymore by these pronouncements. It's show and tell time baby! Unfortunately Arid never has and never will have anything of substance to show. I shorted 10,000 more shares this morning. Expect a slow, steady decline back to the $6.00 range as people slowly realize that Ariad has a long slog ahead of it before anything positive happens. Look for a rebound back into the $8's around 2018.

    Sentiment: Strong Sell

    You can't sell something no one wants to buy. The only interest shown has been Dr. Reddy's Lab which offered $5.00 per share. This was roundly rejected but now Ariad is reconsidering. They are really crunching numbers on Lansdowne Street. Not good. This whole thing will become known as "Denner's folly". Coupled with his screw up investment in Vivus he is quickly becoming know as a contrarian indicator.

    Not him, though I do respect his counter to the 24 hour incessant pumping that goes on here. All the cheerleading - squealing about how great Ariad is reminds me of cheerleaders shouting to the crowd, "We're # 1!!! We can't be beat!!!" while the other team scores another touchdown and they fall behind by 50 points. Ludicrous? You bet.

    Ariad is, at best, dead money until 2018. Your money would be better off (safer) in a savings account or CD especially now that interest rates are about to rise.
