    well...........chas..... i imagine..one portion of that "convincing" is: what % working interest is rampart offering in return for how much funding and/or work t/b performed by the prospective partner. the seismic survey interpretation is ramparts most convincing piece of evidence. if rampart offers a nice % working interest....... that combination might find an interested partner. perhaps another foreign based oil corp that like australia, wants to get its hands in on the alaskan oil play. there is i believe another australian oil corp currently working oil on the north slope. ( i would have to look that up to confirm). i still dont see this issue not coming to a head before the january drilling. such would seem logical to me. that would take us to october 31 or before that, i venture to guess. of course the outcome could be yea or nay . thats how i am thinking on this issue.

    phoenix rises from the ashes..............
    i got stung by a wasp last week and i still have swelling and minor pain. just one single wasp. if it was ten i would likely be in hosp ER. powerful venom evidently.
    just watching a show how western docs purposefully place bees upon a patient to utilize the venom......this patient took about 5 stings......the doc made sure all venom went into the patient and then pulled out stinger with tweezers. patient said its best of all therapies for him. think for severe arthritis ? dont recall.
    ok......i digress........ have good week urself. mkt seemed to have made u turn from this morning.........my small caps still red ticker though.

    been watching Issa on cspan . he is focused like a laser on the IRS........very intense prosecutor...........democratic subcommitte members have no ammo..........seems everyone on both sides of aisle knows lois lerner is gonna take a criminal hit..........the dems want to prolong this til after upcoming congressional elections.......... congress wont get to bottom of this...........the lawsuits with discovery including depositions have better shot at success.
    if ackman is allowed to hold public meetings discussing "why he thinks herbalife is an illegal pyramid scheme........then why cant shortie hedgie carp write an anti mnkd article ?
    now if article contains fact falsities published with intent.....then i could see criminality.....but im not sure the article was illegal. we get rank stupid articles daily from seek alph and da street and benzga etc.........
    of course you suggest SEC VIEW the trading before and after the article which you are absolutely correct about. also the trades of entities known to be anyway related to the Karp hedgefund.
    its rigged against the retail player. its unfortunate. congressional laws clearly show hedgie lobbyist $contributions allow for legislation full of loopholes. thats a key problem here. also ,,,,,,the naked shorts i dont believe truly cover within required settlement date and i never hear of sec/finra enforcement against such violations. weird. but true.

    if rampart secures a deep pocket oil corp partner......as it is currently actively seeking to do thru the hiring of Roth Capital.................. then i see these low volume price depressions .........going away as an ongoing incessant manipulative tactic being employed here. really hoping for rampart to secure a partner. i assume it needs to be done months prior to commencement in january, of the alaskan north slope wells being drilled.

    sec website has a page to file your complaint online. they immediately acknowledge simply that they received your complaint. takes few minutes to do. fwiw. letter to FINRA is also an idea.

    yes........add some quantity to your short bet though. you are too light. i would recommend u get your family to short this as well. it will amplify your bet exponentially if u can have a pyramid scheme approach to your short bet. have your family go short and then they call their friends to go short......and then their friends call their respective families to go short.........and on and on.................
    please keep mb posted in real time as to your fiscal well being.............and that of your family and friends..........have a WONDERFUL WEEK.............SEE YOU AT THE MNKD CONF CALL :))
    disclosure; very long.

    expect it daily............meanwhile we are one day closer to hopefully having news that rampart has found a deep pocket oil corp as a partner...................and we are one day closer to the drilling of two wells in alaskan north slope.

    they are all getting hammered today.........as well as last week........... its a larger marketwide caution leaving the riskier small caps........possibly....... but its a mistake to throw out the baby with the bathwater so folks have to look at each small cap company on its own merits i would suggest. could be great entry point......gradual entry i mean.....for a host of small caps being punished by the entire selloff behavior.
    if mnkd comes up with a very positive terms to its partnership..........this thing will shoot up...........
    and if afrezza takes off in america commercially.........we are talking mid double digits ? i would guess.
    i know some folks say mid to high double digits........... or beyond............
    the commercial rollout will be fascinating to watch as it evolves.......... i think it could be highly successful from the get-go.

    no- its just a absence of any info..........if they knew deal was bad deal stock woul plummet and if they knew there was no deal stock would move towards $zero. your post is wholly incorrect based on incorrect guess/pemise/wishful thinking............BY YOU

    Clinical Trial - Apaziquone

    first of all you should rephase your question to : could this mean that the fda decision on the nda submission is soon.
    secondly; no.
    upcoming conf call may provide more granularity on this subject. of eoquin. i tend to doubt we get much eoquin discussion at that conf call. maybe in q& a session ?
    sppi is undervalued, imo, regardless of eoquin. i am assuming belinostat will evolve into close to 100 mill per year for sppi corp. i assume fusilev stays relatively constant for next 4 quarters (dont want to project too far out) although this reporting period might show slight increase in fusilev sales based on any temporary generic shortages.
    expect zevalin to come in similar to prior quarters. a perhaps slight not impactful growth in captisol-melphalan........
    folotyn ........same as last quarter...........
    we are waiting towards end of 2014 for clinical trial data phase 2 .............. if we get one of our pipeline drugs to attain fda approval.........its a game changer as far as current sppi mkt cap.
    if we get new CEO and new B.O.D. thats a significant upside event for the upside future of this company.

    mnkd is letting retail s/h take brunt of the beating............ either they got zippo to say or they got a great news announcement waiting for close to the upcoming quarterly earnings report date in august.............. i guess..............keep in mind this stock can go up a buck in a matter of minutes on a leaked news situation where only few big $ tutes have that leaked info. dont rely on current red ticker day after day. its logically a function of shortie exploiting the news vacuum by mnkd mgmt as to the partnership/takeover. shortie is logically taking advantage of this news vacuum. longs can logically increase their profits by adding shares on these dips. gl.....................i have no clue as to what the future holds. uncertainty is not good- ever.

  • takeda has to have learned a lot of lessons from the vvus and arna commercial rollouts. that has to help takeda - i surely hope so. takeda i expect has lot more muscle than does arna's partner Eisai...........so good chance takeda can come out with best commercial start up in america...........of all obesity drugs amongst orex, arna, vvus. i am long both orex and arna. i believe usa obesity mktplace has plenty of space for both products. takeda also has advantage of doctors now having witnessed their own patients taking the arna and vvus drugs for over a year. that real life eyeball empirical evidence.....in front of every doctors own eyeball..........can also result in benefits to orex. docs can more easily be comfortable scripting out contrave from what they have seen over past year with qysimia and belviq.
    i personally think takeda should start off IMMEDIATELY WITH TV/CABLE TV ADVERTISING AS WELL AS INTERNET ADS ON POPULAR INTERNET WEBSITES......... not limited to specialty medical oriented websites like eisai does. and magaxzines ads are a joke, imo. who reads mags ? everyone i know relies on mobile devices of some sort. i think contrave has opportunity to leap frog to the front of the new fda approved obesity drug line.........in the american marketplace. if european approval can be attained....... we got a multibagger here from todays pps., imo only. perform & invest on your own due diligence and dont invest on anonymous yahoo mb posts. gl to all legit retail players.

    lack of information in these instances.......( i see it oftentimes and not just here with mnkd & greenhill, etc)
    always amazes me in light of the fact that the wall street casino is the most corrupt marketplace on the planet. guess folks are afraid of federal jail time ? otherwise, dont understand why no leaks either pro or con..........i know the interested pharmas sign confidentiality agreements so they cannot leak info(legally anyway) and the representatives have fiduciary duties etc not to leak info. i ultimately dont know. because there are otherwise so many leaks on so many companies its hard to believe. but we have not one peep of any clue.

    Those who stand to lose when Belviq succeeds

    by tiger_josef Jul 27, 2014 7:03 AM
    stringandtwocups stringandtwocups Jul 27, 2014 1:35 PM Flag

    the science will prevail is an ambiguous statement. the science of appetite suppressant may indeed work......and it is a novel drug......however whether belviq becomes a commercial success in america is NOT necessarily founded upon the success of belviq's science. the sales of belviq in america up til today is PARTIAL EVIDENCE of such. i am long arna and now my only hope is that the commercial rollout takes 2 full years to kick into gear and become a commercial success.
    not all top tier scientific discoveries become commercial success stories.
    why doesnt eisai hire a company to do a scientific survey of prescribing doctors and find out why the script issuance for belviq is not more robust. maybe that survey would enable eisai to improve certain impediments to scripts being issued.
