    When I walked by the vineyard

    The question is, if this was true, why would you risk the potential legal ramifications of posting this on a MB? Not judging or being snide, not my thing. It just defies reason. Would you answer a straightforward question: are you writing any calls in ANV?

    I'd loke nothing more that you are correct on this. I'll believe it when I see it. Cheers! (Love a peppery red Zin!)

    Price will rise. It's the big W on the spot price. We are only a third of the way up the far right line of the W. Daily is a bull flag, weekly is so bullish. We need dollar to slacken, against what? Gold is the only thing left, and it will work. "The committee will remain patient...", so that means no rate hikes till fall at the earliest. Short stocks and long gold, and I'm no bug.

  • It's like he wants to bring me down? It's like he changes sides which ever way the wind is blowing. It's like he is trying to manipulate me emotionally. He has Narcissistic Personality Disorder and he needs us all to be his narcissistic supply! I am breaking my chains of codependence! I am better than that! I deserve to be spoken to honestly by the people I interact with on YMBs! Here, today, I am breaking the chains that bind me to awsgv!

    Ooooooh noooooo, I just realized that floor seats in the thousands is my Karma, man. I need a miracle. Jack, pass me that ballon, bro.

  • He really wants to see me at Soldier Field this summer, and it ain't gonna be cheap. I'll have to make up the ticket price selling burritos no matter how well my options turn out. Tickets start at $375! Glad I snuck into Buckeye Lake in 92..

    You'll find more green runs in CO than in Vermont. The ratio to green to blue and black and double black is probably greater in VT. but you'll still have much more novice terrain to choose from than you will in VT. The resorts are just so much bigger. Also, the snow is a lot better in CO, and that's easier to ski on. Much more likely to be skiing on ice back east. Breckenridge has a green (novice) run that is 3.5 miles long! That's a lot of easy skiing. You get to spend more time skiing and less time on chairlifts. Sven, I think you are off base here buddy.

    Some bashers do work in boiler rooms. In the Oncology space there is an organization called Icarus Consultants. Check out their Web page. A group from another board has put it together that this company is involved in organized price supression for the purposes of competitive advantage, and are bashing, in our opinion only. We have no definitive proof. We are not making claims or accusations. It's just an opinion. "Helping your drug get to market first". Check out their page.

    Great place for a family Vaca. The town is a cool little place, and you can get there by car from the Denver airport. Maybe 1.5 hours? Since you aren't super technical back country powder hounds Breckinridge would give you everything you need. You can jump off cliffs there too though, if the kids advance quickly they are going to want to jump off cliffs. And A Basin, one of 4 or 5 days, for the view. Lessons, youll have more fun with lessons. After a week of 1/2 to 2 hour lessons youll be a pretty darn good skier and the kids will likely be hooked for life. It happened to me. Hope ARNA blows up in a good way for ya!

    Jackson Hole Wyoming is the best skiing I've ever experienced. The natural beauty of the area, herds of elk and antelope on the snow covered range, Grand Teton's as the backdrop, jaw dropping. There is a reason Han Solo lives there. Summit County Colorado is a great family destination, with Breckinridge being a big three mountain resort with lots of runs for every skill level. There is also Copper, Keystone, and my favorite Arapahoe Basin (mostly above tree line so you are surrounded by skyscraper dwarfing rock monoliths) is kinda a must go to for one day if in Summit County. I'd do Breckinridge and A Basin and skip the other places. Crested Butte is great skiing but kinda hard to get too. Other than that I've skied in the Pacific Northwest which is awesome but the snow is kinda heavy. If you want to do that it's Baker. Snowshoe is WV is no slouch for an east coast location, but nothing east of the Mississippi can compare to the west. I've never skied Utah but I hear Snowbird is amazing.

    My advice is to take a lesson every day if you can afford it. For you and the family. Even experts learn from lessons and you'll have more fun.

    There is a chance that the timing isn't poor. There is a chance that the timing is highly strategic. I climbed Tahoma (Mt. Rainear). Yup, one of several very cool things my great hair has done with its time on Earth. Anyway, my hair did this by driving up to 6,000 ft. After huddling with the team my hair checked in at the ranger station and paid a $20 fee which goes toward helicopter rescue (a bargain really). Then the real work of carrying a heavy bag full of $%@+ up to 10,500ft. ensued. Once that goal was accomplished my hair and the team checked in with each other, made camp, melted snow, paired down the bag of $%@+, and went to sleep. Next morning 4:30AM my hair, along with my tan, resumed its climb to the summit. I'll tell you, both my hair and the view looked great up there. But it was hard work, and it wasn't accomplished in a single leg. If we hadn't checked in because we were to cheap to pay the $20, well that would have been stupid and potentially suicidal. If we hadn't broken the climb half way, and lightened our burden, gotten some rest, I'm certain we would have never made it to the top. Seems to me this story is applicable to our situation, here, as a company.

    Go team!

  • A tale of two ARNAs. As we look forward through this current calender year what do you forsee happening with ARNA's pipeline, balance sheet, and strategic alignments? What are your dreams, what are your fears, and what is the middle road? What is your evidedence? I've started this thread because community brainstorming can bare unexpected fruit. I hope that experienced and intelligent contributers will respond. This thread may also become a good place to collect low information drive-by vandals for your ignore list.

    I'll start by focusing on one thing, Jack Lief's emphasis on creating shareholder value this year. My expectation is that, despite valid frustrations over the share price and Belviq roll out, JL is a competent CEO that will execute through pipeline progress, enhanced communication, and strategic alliances beyond Eisai. Jairy, one of the best, stated that speculation about the January 20th offering being connected with some kind of partnership was ridiculous. Arena just needs more money. So this would imply that ARNA has not received an offer it finds attractive, will use these monies to enhance value by advancing the pipeline, and then at some later date, perhaps later year, partner proven drugs for distribution on more favorable terms. In the meantime news of pipeline advancements including an expanding Belviq label, and also news of an expanding international market place for Belviq, will buoy the share price from here, perhaps propel the share price higher. Some will find my evidence flimsy, which is the proving pudding of an approved drug and a stocked pipeline 18 years after the business was founded, and the recent words of the CEO that has led this company to a glass at least half full.

    For shareholders this company can still be a commonwealth. I think it gets better from here, which is not how i felt when i sold my remaing shares from the 2, 3, and 7 zones in 2013. In it to win it. Hope to hear from you. United We Stand

    I also looked up TRGT when i read s9's idea. It's had some interesting intra day volume spikes happening since since mid December, and short interest dropped by 2/3s.


  • I've read a couple of encouraging but vague hypothesis as to what this offering really means for the company and its shareholders IN THE NEAR TERM. My market experience is limited and has mostly focused on TA, so I'm suggesting that some members from the group with time served and chops start drawing from their imagination and experience.

    Has anybody seen a move like this before that resulted in a strong near term positive for shareholders?

    How could this be either leverage or a mechanism for a merger or acquisition situation?

    What do you think about bj_surfer's idea that the offering will be price well above the current share price? Has anybody seen this before?

  • Details, people. Before I chug the draino I'm gonna read this here form S3. So many possibilities in this yet undiscovered country. What I'm not going to do is jump to the conclusion that this is bad for current shareholders in anything other than the short term. Didn't jack say Arena was focused on increasing shareholder value this year?
