    best solution is to call your specific broker and ask what their policy is for loaning out shares of mnkd from your various accounts. different brokerages have different policies. fwiw.

  • todays street dut com article cites new coverage of mnkd with $12/sh price target..........
    go to yahoo quote for mnkd then click on "news' and read article by the streeett ........

    terms of buyout will be dependent to some degree on label issue, extent,if any, of follow up studies.......... so the parties can agree to a lot of the contractual takeover terms but subject to modifications post fda approval conditions. hence, no takeover will be finalized. but the identity of the takeover candidate can be isolated with much of the terms agreed upon.......prior to the fda decision 3 months out. you give 5% chance of an ambiguous occurrence (by the way). there is an excellent chance that there will be multiple suitors of mnkd corp and further that one of the suitors will be selected by mnkd as having the best offer. all of this before fda decision. of course, no formalized agreement til after fda approval and understanding of any fda conditions attached, such as labeling, follow up studies.......

    so what if folks sell today,,,,,,,,, and it finds new floor at $8/sh based on some unexpected mnkd press release ? further,,,,,,,after realizing that todays " fda news" is NOT material and Not significant as to fda approval.............. why wont stock close close to $ 7/sh ?
    this could be last chance to get in at close to $6 ?
    y ou nor i have no idea what big $$ is gonna do here. big $$ might jump into mnkd heavy sometime today.

  • longs should find something better to do today. this company is takeover candidate. period. let the investment bank line up the prospective buyers. let the prospective big pharma buyers craft their offers $$.
    its all good. we are getting fda approval. i see no rational compelling thesis to argue otherwise.

  • stringandtwocups stringandtwocups Apr 7, 2014 10:47 AM Flag

    this morning was a buying opportunity. duh. i saw it coming as soon as the news was published and i bought shares accordingly. there is no reason for longs to have "angst"..........and the longs that sold would be wise to buy back immediately. dont folks realize this company will be taken over ? its the best bet out there at todays undervaluation thanks to the meaningless news of fda wanting more than a few days to review the advisory panel findings. gee whiz.......... the big pharmas need 3 months minimum to construct their bids and that includes performing due diligence

    i think,,, absolutely NOT. this is going to be a competitive process that takes time. i think multiple suitors are a given. no partner update for many weeks to come, at the earliest, imo only.

    1st TV ad 4/21!!!

    how bought we all agree " somtime in april"..........why qibble over meaningless stuff.
    im more interested in the quality and efficacy of the "entire tv commercial rollout strategy" and its tactical strategic airing of a variety of evolving storyline commercials over an appropriate duration.- eisai must spend money here going onto the july 1st addition of another 200 belviq sales reps= new total sales reps of 600 . this is the moment for eisai to introduce america to what belviq is .this is Eisai's opportunity to introduce a new product to all of usa. the foundational footwork ( visiting docs to discuss belviq & a small group of folks who can now give testimonials as to the success with belviq usage) has now been laid by eisai. its time for effective DTC. IM hoping the tv ads go hand in hand with widespread internet ads.

    the buying frenzy should have started on this mornings drop based on insignificant 3 month delay in fda approval. that should not stop the prospective big pharma buyers from crafting the competitive bids for mnkd and such likely includes time needed (anyway) for big pharma to perform due diligence w/r to mnkd internal business records.......... confidentiality agreements must be signed........
    i think the buying frenzy occurs even without shortie covering............ shortie covering should further add to the increase in mnkd mkt cap leading up to big pharma takeover.

  • stringandtwocups stringandtwocups Apr 7, 2014 10:12 AM Flag

    im just reminding those folks who are naively falling for this false "panic sell" thinking.........
    news like today is a great day to add shares. i just discussed a few of the multiple stage elements of an auction sale......... some folks not familiar with an auction sale should read up on the process with a google search of the subject. mnkd is "the" ideal candidate for takeover by big pharma already involved in the diabetes business where they already have the experienced sales reps making calls to doctors already. there are already prepared to sell this mnkd product for type 1 and type 2. further....... it is possible, the inhalation will become the preferred choice by the upcoming generations of diabetics.

  • todays news is soooooo expected................. its NOT EVEN CLOSE TO BEING A BIG DEAL (fda needs 3 more months)........... this therapy might very well transform insulin protocol for next generation of diabetics............ what big pharma is NOT GONNA BE INTERESTED IN THIS ?? all the diabetic big pharmas are interested. LETS HIRE A BANKER TO CONDUCT AN AUCTION SALE. of course when you initiate auction sale . THAT IS RIGHT AFTER FDA APPROVAL. THIS 3 MONTHS GIVES THE BANKER TIME TO CONTACT ALL PROSPECTIVE BIG PHARMA BUYERS AND PERHAPS PRE FDA APPROVAL ALLOWS FOR THE "DISCOVERY// DUE DILIGENCE"" looking over the mankind books......... that big pharma must perform as part of the auction process.

  • hope latest short interest has risen. tv commercials should beat shortie to a pulp so he is nice and tenderized.........and come the additional 200 belviq sales reps on july 1 st........... shortie should be fully baked with a crispy crust and ready to be eaten.

  • the yahoo retail longs,,,, the short hedgies,,,, the institutional longs who loan out shares ........ NONE of this will have any impact if the doctors/patients ultimately decide to utilize belviq. Eisai need not convince investors that belviq works and is safe. Eisai has to persuade the doctors and now, with tv ads, the american prospective patients; meaning the obese, the prediabetics, the folks with hypertension. belviq has been on the market with NO ADVERSE SIDE date. that should be very influential to both doctor and the avg american who can benefit from belviq.
    Eisai can do this. belviq works. Eisai should put forth a great effort now as to the docs and the usa public as to education and awareness of belviq. the rollout expenses incurred by Eisai will greatly diminish ONCE WE ESTABLISH BELVIQ AS A RECOGNIZED MEDICAL OPTION FOR all the symptoms itemized herein.
    repeat; eisai expenses will decline as to the commercial rollout of belviq.........ONCE EISAI PROPERLY ESTABLISHES belviq in the minds of both the doctors and the american public. so lets get this thing done.
    shorties will be toasted..........extra crispy.

    im busy reading about all the billions exiting the bond funds.......... must be a lot of cash on the sidelines........... that sideline cash is a great big source of potential future investment in arna corp.
    i think once the scripts establish a 10,000/wk floor..........prospective investors will attain the confidence needed to put their money to work in arna corp. hope Eisai new belviq mgmt team is planning on growing belviq and spending the money needed to get this thing flying off the doctors' prescription pads.
