  • It doesn't matter what your message is, pump or bash, everyone with a copycat name is worthless. Have an "r" next to an "n"? Ignored. Have an extra letter smuggled in? Ignored. Have a number that is slightly different? Ignored. Same goes for any name that has a vulgarity in it which is basically like getting a tattoo on your forehead that says "I am a moron" don't even need to open your mouth and I already know you aren't worth listening to.

    January 15th OPEX.

    This stock is always smashed down on news as is every other bio these days, OREX's news this week stands as the perfect example. I wouldn't count on any news short of a buyout resulting in a green close on that day. What we need are sales to turn the tide. I doubt we will ever see a big pop to glory...when it comes, and it will, it is going to be the result of a slow grind.

    FDA approves weight-management drug Saxenda

    "Results from a clinical trial that enrolled patients without diabetes showed that patients had an average weight loss of 4.5 percent from baseline compared to treatment with a placebo (inactive pill) at one year."
    "Saxenda has a boxed warning stating that tumors of the thyroid gland (thyroid C-cell tumors) have been observed in rodent studies with Saxenda but that it is unknown whether Saxenda causes thyroid C-cell tumors, including a type of thyroid cancer called medullary thyroid carcinoma (MTC), in humans. Saxenda should not be used in patients with a personal or family history of MTC or in patients with multiple endocrine neoplasia syndrome type 2 (a disease in which patients have tumors in more than one gland in their body, which predisposes them to MTC).
    Serious side effects reported in patients treated with Saxenda include pancreatitis, gallbladder disease, renal impairment, and suicidal thoughts. Saxenda can also raise heart rate and should be discontinued in patients who experience a sustained increase in resting heart rate."
    In summary - not a threat...if not for all of the above, simply because it is an injectable.

    I was going to buy an investment property but if this goes that low I will be buying a considerable amount more of ARNA instead.

  • WASHINGTON (AP) -- The U.S. economy grew at a sizzling 5 percent annual rate in the July-September period, the fastest in more than a decade, on the strength of consumer spending and business investment.

    The resurgence in growth last quarter provided the latest evidence that the U.S. economy is steadily strengthening and outshining most others around the world.

    The Commerce Department on Tuesday sharply revised up its estimate of third-quarter growth from a previous figure of 3.9 percent. Much of the increase came from consumer spending on health care and business spending on structures and computer software.

    It was the fastest quarterly growth since the summer of 2003, and it followed a 4.6 percent annual growth rate in the April-June quarter.

    Most analysts think the economy is slowing to an annual rate of around 2.5 percent in the current October-December quarter. And they foresee growth around 3 percent in 2015. That would still be the strongest expansion since the economy grew 3.3 percent in 2005, two years before the Great Recession began.

    The 2007-2009 downturn, the worst since the 1930s, cost millions of people their jobs. Since then, the economy has struggled to regain full health. Even after the recession officially ended in June 2009, the economy has turned in tepid growth averaging 2.2 percent annually.

    But many economists think growth is set to accelerate as more businesses have grown confident about hiring. The country is on track to have its healthiest year for job growth since 1999. In November, employers added 321,000 jobs, the sharpest one-month increase in three years.

    With more people working and having money to spend, solid gains are expected in consumer spending, which accounts for about 70 percent of the economy.

    For the third quarter, consumer spending grew at a 3.2 percent rate, the best showing this year and a full percentage point higher than the estimate the government made a month ago. That upward revision was driven by higher

    I'd be interested in yahoo creating a feature that posts how many people have you on ignore. This number should be public for all to see. Might be enlightening to the garbage posters to know just how few people are actually getting their messages.

  • One of the risks is that any thug with a couple million dollars can push our stock around at will. We need more exposure and more trading volume if this is ever going to change - the only way that is going to happen is with more sales, the promise of more sales or for a bigger bully to show up.

    Requirement for more information and rejection are two different things but yes, they will be the only approved product in EU. No need to exaggerate, the facts are sufficient to get the point across. I own is not a zero sum game, don't treat it like one.

    Your back-handed "we longs" routine is stupid and pointless. Let is go already. Everyone recognizes your passive/aggressive garbage so it is time to either adjust your tactic or move on.

    IMS Rx (Week of 12/05/2014)

    It would appear that this morning's dip is not correlated to the scripts for anyone in the sector because OREX isn't being allowed to come up for air either.

  • CS and The Street are the most prolific liars in the market. CS strategically releases recommendations that benefit their current or desired positions. There are examples almost every time tute holdings are released. When called out for it they say, "Oh, our investment arm operates independently from our analysts". don't consult your internal "experts" so you can practice what you preach to the market? These guys are the dirtiest of the dirty - they straight up make their own luck by conning the general public. As for The Street/Cramer, his Podunk operation isn't big enough to be verified twice a month but I have not doubt he is making his own luck as well one lightning round based 1% pop/dip at a time.

    You think so? What do you think the reaction would be to the announcement that an offer has been tendered for the company or that Belviq will now be covered by Medicare?

    Buying on the open market invites accusations of insider trading. With the insiders already receiving generous stock options as part of their compensation package I am sure the sentiment is that it is not worth the risk. Especially when you know that ARNA has a long list of catalysts that could move the stock in a big way at any time with little or no notice. If the PPS blows up for any reason and as an insider you coincidentally bought a pile of open share stocks in the recent past don't you think there will be some scrutiny? Try thinking of things from their perspective instead of your own...all of the insiders already hold enough shares/options to be very wealthy if things go even modestly well.

    Wow Willis, you sure are good at this whole back-handed compliment bashing technique. You've got all the longs completely fooled. Keep it up - there is no chance they can see right through your 90 IQ point strategy to overcome one of the most potential filled Bio companies on the market. Do you have a blog or twitter account I/we can subscribe to? You are my hero so I and the rest of the longs hang on the edge of our seats waiting for your posts. Please post more, we really respect the genius of how you work the crowd. I'm sure your talent is making you completely rich beyond your wildest dreams and that your parents were completely wrong to kick you out of their house when you turned 30.

    I've said it here many times - my wife's friend is an energy trader on WS. She has a terminal and is willing to send me the numbers she just needs to know how to look them up because she doesn't follow bio info and it apparently is not real straight forward. If somebody has experience using the terminal to pull the script data send me directions and I will forward them on to her so she can give it a try. I don't trade the stock I just buy and hold so personally I could care less about what happens week to week but I'm happy to share the data if someone just tells me how to get it.

    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.
