  • Mama Cass would still be alive if she was on Belviq... Without the hardcore hunger pains? She wouldn't have felt the need to choke down that ham sandwich. Just the facts folks!

    Think about it.

    It's about time you came back. You should wear it as a badge of honor that the negatives don't like you, the true longs like you. Don't stay away so long.

    Everybody should buy some of this every month...

    Good job! It takes a long time to become an overnight success. That's what it'll look like here someday. People have the mentality that they want to make fast money, okay great if yuh get lucky but that's russian roullette and fails 199/200x. But the breast cancer company that went flying yesterday - that's what you have to look forward to someday - or something like that - with ARNA. Knock on wood of course. But it's so foreseeable that it even looks probable and just a mind game now. There's the overhead of the broad market looking frothy too so that makes it scarier. BUT! With the way you have been buying, your reward if/when this thing goes ballistic on a day or uptrend (which is the same thing if you can hold on) like PBYI yesterday will be crazy good. You will not only be a genius, but a rich genius! Alright, great job and good luck! :)

  • Spend a fixed amount of money every month and your cost basis average will be about in the middle of the road when it takes off to the north for good. Wall street takes the absolute GREATEST things and pumps it and then tortures folks who buy into the pump by making them think they'll do nothing but lose all their money. It's all false, it's just how they: "separate you from your money." By purchasing shares every month at fixed amounts, over a period of time you will end up with what is a median-type of cost basis. When the next leg-up occurs you will be sitting nice. I typically just buy in bulk at one time when I think something is aberrationally cheap. Then Wall Street has their way to make me regret it, and sometimes not, but generally a person should expect to be severely tested. Few people have the patience and that's why they lose and WS wins. It's like Las Vegas, they didn't build all those buildings on the $0.99 breakfasts. So if a person buys every month and leaves everything in there, with a long time horizon, you can come out with huge wins and also only pay capital gains taxes which make a huge difference in what you get to spend after you cash out. Given all that's taken place since pre-approval, these days are arguably as good as it was then because the drug has already passed the FDA approval, you can see the drug is amazing, and scripts are rising every week. With all that, the price has been going down for a LONG time. So it's a divergence of outstanding prospects and momentum for a company and its share price. How long THAT persists is the big unknown. But buying a certain amount every month can shield an investor against the volatility in price where the long term horizon looks excellent. And I personally think I need to do more of this, here. So, just something to think about.

    Investment bankers? Are those the animals? Hope so! As our spokesperson they could use that guy from Game of Thrones who got tortured by that snot-nosed guy who's the son of somebody important (bad with names). Speaking of endorserments, wonder when Oprah gets onboard. Heck, if we need more money should just ask her. If she thereafter endorsed Belviq? Her cash pile would be devastatingly large.

    I was wondering, how do you do a pain trial? When I was a kid and my step mom would grab my arm to get control of, well more like grab my arm and: "Listen Buster, you better...." Anyway, that p'd me off and I'd sass right back: "That didn't hurt." Which pushed the envelope and then of course I don't know how many times I wont that battle. BUT! Makes me think, nah... They don't sit in a room with a tester and then the person says: "That didn't hurt." Until it finally does. And then they say: "Okay, this pain medication comes-up with a score of 8 on our pain scale, pass it!" So, makes me still wonder... How do they do pain testing. Hmmm... No wait! I know!! They move the stock price one way or another and somebody's always getting hurt. That's it! We need a pain medication! Go ARNA!!

  • Responses no longer go to the top? Or is it just today, or me, or YHOO? I can never figure out what they are thinking at the YHOO headquarters with all their inconsistencies but hey, they do what they do but I don't understand why they do what they do! It's like they're trying to run everybody off these boards.

    And to think, didn't even remember there's a monicker of snaketrdr! I have quick trigger on these negative dorks. I'll hit ignore after seeing just one stupid post so not familiar but do remember ignoring a clone of the same name using an m. Who has time for that? They're probably wanting to ward off any buying because of that breast cancer stock that went up 200% a.h. last night and concerned more buyers might flock into biotech. Which reminds me, I have to figger The Fed (who has been buying-up real estate for the recent past) must now want to buy-into biotech & social media given Yellen's perplexing comments the other day. Okay, no wait! The Fed can't buy stocks! But the banks do. I heard the other day banks now own 52% of stocks but don't know from where that was sourced. The other part is, I can understand why the Fed would want banks to get into biotech now -- because there is the ACA and biotech has been a lucrative financing area for the chumps that do it; then there's social media which going forward, if you're the Fed? You would like to be in control of the messages that are going around. So all that makes sense. You know, the Fed... That's a private corporation and they pretty much have a goal to own the USA and world. I think the banks and the Fed are the biggest problem we have. There's no reason we can print our own money - we don't need to be paying a private corporation interest. What's THAT for??? Anyway, just all I can figure on them wanting to take the bios and social media over on the cheap is why Yellen would even mention these two areas is all I can surmise. Maybe there's a better explanation?? I dunno... :)

    You could lose ten pounds in a hurry three ways:

    1). Try Belviq for 15 days.
    2). Have your head removed.
    3). Stop swallowing Carp Kreme (which is gross & disgusting and frankly, probably against the law or it should be).

    I'm sure your daddy is very proud.

    CRAMER!

    NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- Here's what Jim Cramer had to say about some of the stocks callers offered up during the Mad Money Lightning Round Monday evening:

    Whole Foods Markets (WFM_): "We need to see a few good quarters in a row. It's expensive if they keep giving us lackluster earnings. We need to wait."

    BioMarin (BMRN_): "This stock is too low. It's not kept pace with its peers and it deserves to be higher. "

    Puma Biotechnology (PBYI_): "I'd rather see you in one of the other biotechs that I like." Less

  • It now indicates it's for weight loss! Before it just said Belviq and would attract nothing but a blind squirrel (which can be successful sometimes). But seriously, an advertisement that doesn't even indicate what something's purpose is when few people are familiar with it? Letting coupons EXPIRE and nobody figures it out for how long? Eisai is the problem here. Belviq is a great drug - should be on the cover of Time Magazine it's so great. And the divergence between sales and the quality of Belviq, after the time has passed, THIS is why folks scratch their heads and question the intentions of all the folks in charge of getting this thing launched successfully. HUGE disconnect between the quality of the drug and the approach to everything that's supposed to be getting it done.

    Yeah but they don't even say what it's for! I posted on this before, the idiots at Eisai... So foolish. If everybody knew what Belviq is? That'd be great! Nobody does though. If they put: "for weight loss" in the ad, THAT would make a BIG difference! But it's not there. It's so glaringly, poorly done that it.......... Uggh! I'm angry about it because I'm a long, long and I care!

  • Anybody see that over on the IV board? Some Dr. said it was one of his patients who now limits the guy to just taking Belviq for maintenance (Bel plus phen yielded the dramatic outcome). But think about that patient, you know how much mobility a person who's getting more: "right sized" reaquires when they lose that quantity of mass? Not only more coordination, better for their knees, feet, all things associated with excess weight, etc. EVERYTHING gets better when you get rid of unneeded weight. Saves lives too, because an overweight driver isn't as coordinated and certainly more likely to be eating while driving. Just like smoking - when they say 400,000 die of smoking every year they have no way to quantify how many other drivers are killed because a driver is distracted through diverting attention to smoking when it should be on driving. Sure, only a few. But it's a big deal if you're the victim but that's not even relegated to boilerplate stuff... Don't know why it's not but.....they sure make an advertisement make a big deal out of a possible dry mouth (which is a good side effect to have if you want to lose weight).
