Yeah, bleeding hard, said fuck it this morning and liquidated my other half position at 5.00 (right after I made my poast about having a 50/50 split) and put into AMRN at 14.75, glad I did.
edit: Glu's kinda irritating me lately, they need more PRs. And they need to market the shit out of their Poker game and Deer Hunter. I mean, why aren't we seeing Deer Hunter t-shirts, etc yet? That TM is pure gold...they need to use it damn it.

I don't have a lot of confidence in their management, which is why they are not a long term hold IMO. I do think their mobile platform is much stronger than ZNGA though.

 

They are down 20% right now. IMO the market is overreacting.

Why little confidence? Aside from the gripes I just posted, I think overall they are doing great. Pinchus realized the growth was going to be in mobile, when...yesterday? de Masi has maneuvered and positioned 2 years ago getting ready for a mobile gaming explosion. And as Microsoft's platform comes online, and Android continues to chip away at iOS, keeping gamers connected to each other across varying platforms is going to mean significant barriers to entry very soon.

Not to mention, Apple TV, etc etc etc, future looks great for Glu. JMHO.

And, after reading Pinchus' strategy is based soley on acquisitions....yikes is all I gotta say there.

edit: I don't agree w/ the assessment that Glu is stealing marketshare from Zynga though. Zynga is just too casual for there to be much overlap there IMO. It's Nintendo that Gluu is bleeding right now.

hm, was it a coincidence, or to stop the bleeding?

 

seems like we'll see the stock reverse?

yeah...maybe throwing extra money at netflix was a bad idea...

They've got so much potential though...hope they can manage to figure it all out. I'd hate to see the content producers take back over in this arena (although netflix is trying to produce some content of their own).

So much for me buying GLUU back in the 4s next week. Damn, had this sucker over a year and the day I sell to put into AMRN is the day they halt trading to announce a blowout. *sigh

Still waiting on AMRN news...

This is all too cray for me.  I'm on the sidelines, and I can't even stomach it

I like the service, but the company is a bit odd in how it's dealt with certain issues. Aside from that most investors aren't keen on jumping back into something that has gone form $300 to $50 in 1 year. Sort of like BAC, the company is a lot healthier then it was in 2009, but the stock isn't showing that intact it drops off when anything even remotely negative happens.

Halted pending material news....the news was FDA approval. But...the halt hasn't been lifted yet, so pay not attention to the BS Yahoo AH prices...I have no idea where that's coming from.

Strange there's not official PR from Amarin though...,and strange trading is still halted so long after the announcement.... I'm (wishful) thinking maybe the delay is because we got our NCE and/or buyout too? Only time will tell. I got notification from Stocktwits...signed up just to follow AMRN today

Heh, out of left field....GLUU was halted right after AMRN. My heart sank since I just sold GLUU to pile into AMRN...thinking GLUU was about to announce a buyout. Lucky for me they just announced moving the earnings call from Aug 7 to Aug 2, and announced blowout earnings this quarter. Wasn't enough to close above 5 dollars though still. Good, I want to buy back in in the fours next week.

Question for AMRN now is...how will the market react? Pop? Or feh?

PS: Key in AMRN and hit search:

Still no word on when the halt will be lifted, wow....


edit: Official PR

http://investor.amarincorp.com/releasedetail.cfm?ReleaseID=696027

Pay close attention to para 2....great job guys. Was a gut-wrenching year for me since I bought AMRN at around these levels last summer, culminated into the must gut-wrenching day today waiting for the news.

NCE status should be announced on 8/10, if not bought out by then.

I'm officially a GLUU fan. Made me a nice 12% in 1 day.
