  • Is It Safe? II: Leveraged ETN Yielding 18%. [View article]
    Looks like the market is heading for a correction. Could be a good time to accumulate shares.

  • How Much Does Seeking Alpha Pay Its Contributors? [View article]
    Censorship is alive and well on SA. They want meaningful, informative dialogue with a family PG rating, not adult level debates. When you do see the occasional debate between contributors, you can feel them walking on thin ice. Hence the debate gets watered down to the point of almost being useless.

  • Are You Prepared For A Bull Market That Will Shock Even The Most Ardent Goldbugs? [View article]
    There is more to a reserve currency than gold or no gold. There is also the trustworthiness and corruption of the government backing the currency.

    Which would you prefer, a country that at least started as a democracy and is moving towards becoming a totalitarian police state, or a country that began as a totalitarian police state and has made superficial gestures at becoming more "open" and democratic?

    Yea, Facebook is just a fad with over a billion subscribers and growing, changing the way we interact with the world and each other.

    That is an important question. I've heard some people say Belviq could replace an SSRI in certain people, and we don't know the # of obese people on SSRI's.

    Is this a serious challenge for Belviq?

    Good point, but that was prior to launch. This far into the launch a new indication may have more impact as the drug becomes more widely known to doctors and enough time has passed without the emergence of serious side effects.

    As you've said before, Belviq needs something besides slowly growing sales to give it a real boost.

    Hypertension alone is potentially very serious . . .

    I agree it is a process, and a lot depends on how aggressive Eisai is with their campaigns. But even the word that TV ads are starting will have some shorts scrambling to cover. Probably good for $.50-$1.00 pop.

  • Google's Opportunity: A Backdoor Into Your Ecosystem [View article]
    Google has a backdoor into your home all right, by mining your search and browsing data and sending it to the NSA.

    It's a pity Open Source is proving itself to suck. Firefox was a great browser with by far the most add-ons, but for some reason they can't make a stable browser that doesn't crash all the time and runs slow as syrup.

    Even little things like Chrome remembers my email so I don't have to type it in 100 times a day. Firefox still hasn't been able to figure that out? Is Open Source really turning out to be that pathetic?

    Yes, but they give mathematically precise numbers and forecasts.

    Yes, that does put Eisai in a tough bind, but if lowering the price would mean "uptake would improve in dramatic fashion", and presumably continue up in a dramatic fashion due to the fact that it is affordable to many more people, maybe that is more important than worrying about fighting to get an expensive drug through insurance?

    You seem a bit ambivalent about price. On the one hand you say Eisai is doing the right thing because raising prices would be difficult later with insurance, yet lowering the price now would dramatically increase sales now.

    So I assume your conclusion is that it is better to have a slow start now and get the higher price approved by insurance down the road?

    I also think you are wrong in that many doctors will wait a year to see if any negative side effects arise. If all seems to be going well and sales continue increasing, momentum will increase.

    jakes, I also wonder why the slow approval in other countries. If even one goes through there will be a share price increase.
