  • When Did Apple Hit The Wall? [View article]
    Seriously, the worst written article I've ever read. Meandering, pointless, and not the least bit entertaining.

    What were you trying to say? After you figure that out, write it down in 1 or 2 sentences. Then focus and try writing the article again. Or not.

    Don't tell me. You're a graduate with an MFA in creative writing, James Altucher is your literary hero, and you're trying to emulate him.

    So go to his blog and find the article in which he gives advice to aspiring writers. After completing an article, his advice is to go back and edit out every other sentence.

  • Sorry Bears, We're In A Secular Bull Market [View article]
    The problem with all this smugness is that it confuses being right about the market with intelligence. Anyone who knows anything about how markets work knows the S&P wouldn't be where it is today without massive infusion of stimulus by the Fed. We'll see how that works out in the end.

    Recent notes from the Fed have made it clear they are well aware they can't keep up this dangerous charade forever. Calling people "brainwashed" who are skeptical about monetary policy and the long-term health of the economy is arrogance.

  • 5 Reasons Why I Am Shorting The Market [View article]
    Exactly the point I was going to make, JP. The problem with well-written, researched and reasoned articles such as this over the past couple of months is that they are dealing with a market wacked out on massive Fed manipulation. It's disconnected from fundamental reality.

    The only question is for how long?

  • Arena Revises SEC Filing On APD811 [View article]
    Pathetic mismanagement, and one of the worst product launches I've ever seen for such a promising product. Disgusting.

  • 3 Myths About Chinese Consumers [View article]
    You're drawing major conclusions about aggregate consumer demand based upon "interviews with three dozen ultrawealthy Chinese worth more than $10 million"?

    This is typical of the problem with much China analysis.

  • Arena's Belviq Sales Continue Up As Others Decline [View article]
    And they have only themselves to blame. The marketing roll out has been a joke, like they are deliberately moving in slow motion. Starting TV commercials almost a year after the product has been on the market? Give me a break.

    ARNA's only problem is Eisai. They went with a lightweight when they should have sold out to a heavyweight corporation that could have kicked this up into blockbuster status right from the start.

    I agree it will get there, eventually. I've made good money in the stock and started buying at $1.85. But I am very disappointed in the marketing. And the longer they wait, the greater the danger that competition from the likes of OREX will hurt long term growth.

  • Quantitative Easing: The Ultimate Faustian Bargain [View article]
    achungerford, your analogy is slightly flawed. In this case, the Fed is a raging fire trying to put out another raging fire of corruption and malfeasance. Excess, artificial growth in the money supply is just fanning the flames. Fires can't extinguish themselves.

    What the Fed needs to do is go home and let businesses that can't manage themselves fail. No more bailing out the rich.

  • Is Arena The Next Alexion? [View article]
    it's amazing how superior this article is to the amateurish hit piece published just prior by another "author".

    Belviq will be a blockbuster drug over the next few years, and anyone getting into ARNA now will be richly rewarded as the most successful weight loss drug in history goes to market.

    Life is beautiful.

    Yea you're right. The Fed and the US government aren't corrupt.

  • Quantitative Easing: The Ultimate Faustian Bargain [View article]
    That's exactly right, which is why the Fed and their QE shell games are just a con to steal money from the working class and give it to the capitalist lords and banksters. The US government is looting the treasury and stealing trillions from Americans and they don't even know it, much less are they doing anything about it.

    Wake up America.

    Bret Jensen provides more high-quality, actionable investment information than any other SA contributor that I'm aware of. When he talks, I listen.

  • European Report Outlines Arena's Prospects There [View article]
    Some of this is political and even historical. The EU has always had a bit of a chip on its shoulder with respect to the US. There is a natural competitiveness, but also a need to show that they are independent and "just as good" if not better.

    One way to distinguish themselves from the US is to put into place more stringent standards with things like medicine and the environment. One might say it helps them feel a bit of cultural superiority.

    The FDA and ARNA made it abundantly clear that the cancer risks are negligible. For Europe to hold up the drug on these grounds is obviously a red herring.

  • An Uncomfortable Bull [View article]
    You're gloating pretty early as it is only March. The year has a way to go. Check back in 3-6 months.

  • Apple Is Not Worth $460 [View article]
    Actually Jonathan your comment makes no sense. To assume a stock is only worth what someone is willing to pay for it regardless of the fundamentals is throwing value investing out the window. I guess that would make you a "momentum" or "technical" trader.

    He lays out a fundamental thesis any value investor can hang their hat on. His thesis of "fair value" assumes very conservative numbers, which is the point of the article.
