Eisai can reduce sales force to original number they had prior to Arena deal
Eisai can stop advertising.
Eisai can let word of mouth and present prescribing doctors increase script count.
Eisai will make a profit currently and into the future.
Arena will not benefit regarding cash flow for a long long time.
If Arena does not have negotiated milestones or minimum requirements or an out then whom ever negotiated this deal is an amateur at best and this is a problem.
Two positives here....Asia has separate partners and we have a great product...
Why would you want Belviq's name associated at all with Chantix and the problems they create?
One week to soon for weather to not be a factor in NE....
Yes,we know this and it is nice to be reminded once and awhile...But how come the general public does not know this....especially the diabetes element....
If they are concerned about Eisai,"I am"...There budget certainly does not reflect this! After this amount of time Belviq should be a household name even if you are not a patient..Someone else in the family or friends could use it....Advertisements need to be adjusted and display success..Thought for the day...
There are 67,000 pharmacies in the US....So Tony726... do the simple math and I will grasp at that straw. And yes I do believe Arena/Eisai have made many mistakes...
Just at CVS and while there asked Pharmacist if she heard of Belviq...Nice reaction...Said she had a couple of people using it....Told me I needed a prescription and notified me of a coupon policy...Keep in mind that there is more then one Pharmacist there....Seemed very aware of the drug compared to awhile back when the reaction by someone else was less enthusiastic....Just something to ponder!
With new pricing,increased commercials"wish they would improve them", word of mouth from current users and Korea , I will say that scripts and revenue will begin to see nice improvements. All current publicity has been positive regarding Belviq....All additional potential drugs a plus but what stated above will get the ball rolling....Just a thought!
With all the current good news , I do believe the missing link,"right or wrong" is the current script count. I do believe with Eisai's current focus that this Friday will begin an upswing in scripts and brings the focus onto ALL that Arena brings to the table. Have to admit that my common sense can not understand this stock price with what they have to offer long term.
How long does the broker have before they must make a decision on taking them?....Not suspicious or anything but the price keeps going lower and it seems that works to the brokers advantage..
What is the definition of very soon....Have been hearing this for very long....Arena should know by now specifically when they will do this...Another and continued mis-steps by JL....Love the science and potential products..The execution on so many fronts is poor at best..The latest..Secondary again on the low side of price points..
Now why would anyone give a thumbs down on accurate and informative information? Says a lot about some of the responses here..
