  • Eisai's Management Discusses F1Q 2014 Results - Earnings Call Transcript [View article]
    It is my understanding that EISAI has 200 representatives working on BELVIQ. SYMPHONY reported 188 sales for the week ending July 26,
    10 people standing on a street corner for a week could have handed out brochures and did more sales than your representatives. What is your problem????????? Also, why are you waiting until December to do advertising????? Eisai, you should hide your head in shame !!!!!!

    Jakes, sorry I was talking about only 234 prescriptions, Eisai, and Costco. If Fresno is so small then Costco is so small.

  • Arena Sales Pace - Week 7 [View article]
    Eisai is a failure !!!!! 234 prescriptions for the week ending July 26th.
    100 investors on this site, half of Eisai representatives, would do a better job!!!!! Advertisements don't start until Nov. or Dec. Give me a break. Two days ago I was in Costco here in Fresno, CA. went to the pharmacy and asked the pharmacy manager if he had any Belviq in stock, and he said no and never heard of it or from Eisai or Arena.Arena, needs to replace Eisai, there 200 reps, are doing a horrible job!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Arena Pharmaceuticals Turns Q2 Profit [View article]
    It was interesting that no one asked on the call when ARNA could expect acceptance of BELVIQ in other countries.

  • Arena Stock Reacts To Sales Pace [View article]
    Spencer, before the launch it was reported that Eisai was going to have 200 representatives meeting face to face with Drs. Do you have any numbers on the representatives? Are the representatives paid with a salary, a salary plus commission, or just a commission?

  • Vivus (VVUS) rises 2.6% premarket after sending a "business update" letter to shareholders outlining its progress on expanding access to its obesity drug Qsymia. The company reiterates some of the points made on the CC saying it is in discussions with Big Pharma regarding increasing the product's reach and notes the drug will be available at certified pharmacies by mid-July. Ultimately, VVUS says that with a combination of expanded access and reimbursement, Qsymia can be "a top-selling drug." (PR[View news story]
    No matter what VVUS does with a big pharma, it will not help it to be
    a threat to ARNA when ARNA finally can market BELVIQ. VVUS will be giving some of its profit to the big pharma. Short VVUS and go long ARNA.
