Hey, don't mess with my fantasy that somewhere out there could be a hideout in a hollowed out mountain where a table full of CEOs that look like Bond villains meets to plot diabolical ways to take down ARNA. Come to think of it Adam Feuerstein does look a lot like Dr. Evil...
Been of the same mind for a long time now - obesity is the life blood for many industries on multiple sides of the equation: prevention, reduction, remediation, enablement. Everyone from drug companies, hospitals, clinics, gyms, fitness equip and clothing manufacturers, diet clinics and food retailers has something to lose. I am generally not a conspiracy theorist but it is not a stretch to think there might be a collective of deep pocketed haters out there working together to stifle our success. I'm not saying it is happening but it is not unreasonable to think it could be.
The only thing firmly established is that you are NOT interested in making this stock look good. If you really are a long then you are one that is not done acquiring and wants the PPS to be low, if you are a short posing as a long then you are clearly out of ideas on how achieve your goals. Either way, I don't like you.
Knowing what is on everybody's cards at the table and deciding what card comes out of the shoe next does not constitute being "smarter".
Obviously they are too overextended to even investigate blatant criminality and congress doesn't seem to be bothered enough to give them adequate funding to get more/skilled resources...
Awesome, I love finding bargains around holiday time. Thanks for the opportunity to pull another lot out of circulation for the next few years.
Thank you for contributing your text book soft bash Willis - each post you make just exposes your hand that much more. Trying to paint a picture of a "hopeful" long happy with a nickel and aspiring for modest gains/loss recoup by the end of the year... The fact that you guys still bother to try influencing the market via a chat board is reassurance enough for me that as a REAL long I am sitting on a future fortune here. I really hope you type your garbage tongue in cheek because if you think you are slick you are a moron.
Wow, are you made of glass because you are completely transparent. You are clearly a talent-less hack soft basher. Bad news Willis - you guys are going to take it in the tail pipe. Anybody that reiterates in every post over and over about how they are a long and then advises to brace for hard times is clearly exactly the opposite. Enjoy the ride ding #$%$...this is going to be both painful and memorable for anyone betting against ARNA.
No logic, no facts, no intellect, no talent, no dignity, no value in your posts whatsoever. Just another scared little moron trying to influence their stock pick via a chat board with a small audience. Kind of painful to watch such ignorance in action really knowing that the rest of us get to log off and move on with our lives at the end of the day but you have to keep on being stupid whether anybody sees it or not.
I feel like one big buyer could come in an kill the party for the shorts, I am surprised no one has decided to go ahead and apply enough pressure to squeeze them out by now. I bet as little as 15-20M shares would be enough to generate a serious panic.
Haha - adjustments pulled it up to $4.46 so I missed the mark but that extra penny nets me alot more than the coffee so I'll take it :)
It will move a nickle in one direction or another in the last 3-4 minutes. The direction will be determined by which side is more determined...I'm an optomist so I say we're looking at $4.45
Never seen an animal kick when it gets badly injured? Perfectly natural...just stand out of the way and let it do its thing while you wait for it to die.
You'd better hope you have deep enough pockets to undersell the ask for at least 3 days because tomorrow you will get good scripts, and Monday you will get official release of study results compounded by earnings that nicely exceed expectations.
You may succeed in holding the line and you may not but either way it is definitely going cost you.
The next few months expect more of the same as scripts ramp up, more study results get released, diet season gets underway (which means more advertising yielding more awareness for both investors and dieters) and the likihood of an approval from another country.
No it is not. The question is why do you sound so desperate in your posts this morning? Let's assume at worst the Phen results alone are equal to the difference between Bel/Phen and Bel alone...who cares...together they are the safest fastest way to lose weight - period! At best Bel and Phen yield a mutual enhancement for each other, not just an enhancement to Bel...either way, there is no better way to lose weight. Accept it, close your short and go long - you lose, we win.
Babs - ever hear the saying "people who live in glass houses shouldn't throw stones"? ARNA isn't exactly in bragging territory right now either. Stop trying to fight the rest of the market segment...everybody is doing terrible these days. Whether you like it or not more than likely all players are either going succeed or fail in similar fashion. I have the vast majority of my eggs in the ARNA basket but owning some of the competition as a hedge is not a bad a idea...if OREX does get EU approval or a buyout you are going to wish you had diversified a little. The market is huge, your enemy should be the hedge funds, insurance coverage, shorts, bashers, hard headed old school doctors and ARNA IR just to name a few. Stop worrying about a little competition that is out there helping to get exposure for the market segment when there are real battles to fight.
Did I say there was going to be a squeeze? No, I sure didn't. I'm sure you clowns will just sit and watch the stock climb out of reasonable range before you quietly close your positions at deeper and deeper loses. The 3's and 4's were a gift, if you didn't take it, you deserve to lose your shirts. For the record I pulled a 134 on my last IQ test...doesn't qualify me as a genius but not bad. You're right though, I must be a little dumb for bothering to climb into the slop to argue with the likes of you. My father always told me not to argue with an idiot because he will drag you down to his level and beat you with experience...your ID was created yesterday and you've already succeeded in personifying that expression.
You mean 43M shorts unable to cover without waking the giant. Low volume is like a noose that gets tighter with every struggle to get out. Big news will be like the hang man pulling the drop lever. Going to be fun to watch you and your ilk kick, ruin your pants and then go silent.
