    So this entire "article" is no more than a shill for a newsletter?

    Apologies if the formatting is confusing, the brief article is a lead in for the video content discussing the obesity drug makers and Arena's upcoming approval. The special free report, which is not a newsletter, is a seperate offer.

    "As of December 31, 2011,

    it developed Pixuvri, an anthracycline derivative for the treatment of hematologic malignancies and solid tumors.

    Another late-stage drug candidate of the Company, OPAXIO, is being studied as a potential maintenance therapy

    for women with advanced stage ovarian cancer, who achieve a complete remission following first-line therapy

    with paclitaxel and carboplatin. On May 31, 2012, CTI completed its acquisition gaining worldwide rights to

    S*BIO Pte Ltd.'s (S*BIO) pacritinib."

    I am long now on CTIC, we will see....

    Also holding my position on Arena Pharmaceuticals, it may tank, but without risk at times your return is limited.

    Just my 2 cents....

    If ARNA is trading around $11-13 a share on Wednesday and they are approved, what do you think their stock will jump to?

    I don't see it at 11-13 due to the mass move to options on it, but I took stake low (2.27), so if all works out with the FDA I hope to see 13-15 on the price after a possible jump to 15-20 very short term.

    My plan is to sell 50% during spike, and hang on to the rest for the long haul.

    Or, I will be selling it all with my stop loss, and hope I still come out a bit ahead.

    My opologies to TMFGreenwave. It appears the first time I viewed the article either something blocked the video from my end or it temporarily had a broken link. It is working now.
