  • FDA Approves Orexigen's Contrave For Obesity Treatment [View article]
    EiS....

    1. I have no control over comments, if they are approved, or if theyt are deleted.

    2. You assigning that responsibility to me is a signal that you lack the ability to do researcrch and you jump to bad conclusions as a result of your inability to do actual research.

    to review:

    1. I have no control over comments

    2. I therefore had nothing to do with them being removed.

    Now, I would highly suggest that prior to jumping to conclusions, you stop, think, perhaps ask a repectful question and gain enough insight to make an informed decision. You now have two choices:

    1. You can man up, admit that you jumped to a conclusion and thus placed undeserved blame on me for having anything to do with your comments being removed. If you chose this path, you will prove that you are a person of honor and a person smart enough to realize mistakes, learn from them, and move forward a smarter person because of it.

    OR

    2. You can continue down the path of believeing a very flawed assumption and prove to any reader that anything you have to say likely carries little value because you demonstrate that you jump to poor conclusions.

    Which path do you choose?

    Proper diet and exercise is the best and safest course. If people did this properly in the first ,ace, obesity would not be as prevalent as it is.

    The stance of consumer reports doctors is the sound approach. Some people will need help and these drugs can do that, albeit with certain risks.

    Thank you for the comment. I have a 9-5 as well (actually more like a 7 to 7).

    I agree that the market is forward looking, but the market has also changed drastically in the last few years as has technology. In 5 years, Belviq could be an "also ran" in obesity treatment. 5 years is a long time.

    I focus in the hear to mid term because that is the pertinent window at the moment. Novo is seeking an approval. Zafgen has a compelling product. Rhythm has a compelling product. That is three new players that are in the process of getting a product to the market right now. There are others as well.

    I cover things like refills, television ads, etc on my website that readers here do not get to see. I do not get too far ahead of myself in this space. Two years is a long time. I have other investment opportunities that will do much better over that timeframe with far less risk.

    The long term story needs the short term story to work. Right now it is about sales, revenue, and cash burn.

    You are focusing on the wrong things at this stage. The focus should be whether orexigen can grow the sector in terms of use, the price point, and how they go about the launch. If what I just mentioned is nit good, the cost of studies a few years from now will not really mstter

    Let me put this as politely as possible. There are those that have market intelligence and those that do not. Those that do not have market intelligence focus on meaningless matters, while those that do have intelligence focus on the issues that matter.

    Those that lack market smarts make comments like yours. It would be too easy to laugh at your naive nature. I actually feel sorry for you.

    My suggestion a hat you grow up and look at things in a new light. By our projections and analysis of this equity have been severely off the mark. Try learning

    Sounds like you are one of those rooting and seeking out anything bad about the other companies when instead your focus should be on growing a sector.

    Belviq and Qsymia have similar lists. The debate is essentially meaningless

    Approval came last night after the market closed.

    I had previously stated more than once that the approval would bring a speculative pop but it would settle down and be in a wait and see on sales

    The "$" key and the "4" are the same.

    Clearly a typo. Anyone that has even a small amount of intelligence figures so etching like that out. Those that don't make foolish statements and laugh.

    Thanks for the laugh

    Babs....

    I hear that you are once again lying about my position in this company.

    I highly suggest you take a reading comprehension course.

    About 5% of my portfolio is in the anti-obesity sector. My entire interest in the sector us in Arena. Let's make that crystal clear. About 5% of my portfolio is invested in Arena.

    If you need help comprehending that, I am sure we can get a residual lesson going. You run around making a fool of yourself....there is not much we can do about that.

    I have not seen much from Leerink in months. It could be that they are limiting the numbver of companies covered. There are fewer analysts these days, and spreading to thin has been a common problem.
