seit den letzten Spekulationen im September sind viele Gewinne realisiert worden. Ich glaube jetzt wo der Kurs etwas zurück gekommen ist ist wieder eine sehr gute Kaufmöglichkeit vorhanden.
Wie man sehen kann werden seit September große Volumen der Aktie bewegt, das könnte ein Signal sein das bereits einige große Positionen aufgebaut worden. Ich bin bei diesem Wert schon 2003 eingestiegen und habe alle Höhen und Tiefen mitgemacht. Meiner Meinung nach wird sich bei diese Aktie noch viel bewegen und 20$ sollten im ersten Quartal 2010 drin sein.
Dies ist keine Kaufempfehlung, nur meine Meinung an alle Investierten viel Glück.
Vivus(VVUS Quote) said Thursday that its weight-loss drug Qnexa helped reduce sleep apnea in patients enrolled in a small mid-stage study. Patients treated with Qnexa experienced a 69% reduction in the number of sleep apnea events compared to patients who were treated with a placebo, said Vivus. The Qnexa-treated patients also lost more weight and lowered their blood pressure more than patients treated with a placebo, the company added. Sleep apnea is a condition by which a person's airflow is partially or completely blocked during sleep. "These positive Qnexa data are encouraging, as there are currently no drug treatments available for the condition. Having a safe and effective oral pharmacologic therapy available to treat obstructive sleep apnea would be a welcome addition for patients," said Dr. David Winslow, the study's primary investigator.
Biotech News on Cusp of J.P. Morgan Confab: BioBuzz By Adam Feuerstein 01/11/10 - 08:24 AM EST Loading Comments... Add Comment Stock quotes in this article: AMAG , VRTX , BCRX , ITMN , VVUS , VPHM SAN FRANCISCO, Calif. (TheStreet) -- TheJ.P. Morgan Healthcare Conference kicks off this morning and per tradition, biotech firms mark the occasion with news-filled press releases -- lots of them. AMAG Pharmaceuticals(AMAG Quote) pre-announced fourth quarter Feraheme sales of $12 million and $13 million -- nicely above Street expectation of around $9 million. Furthermore, the company said that only about $1 million in sales of the intravenous iron replacement came from recognition of previously disclosed $11.5 million in deferred revenue. In other words, Feraheme demand was better than expected. Vertex Pharmaceuticals(VRTX Quote) narrowed the timeline for the release of top-line results from its first phase III study of the experimental hepatitis C drug telaprevir to the second quarter. Previously, Vertex had said to expect the data in the first half of 2010. BioCryst Pharmaceuticals(BCRX Quote) signed two new international marketing partners for its H1N1 flu drug peramivir, but the company failed to announce any new stockpiling contracts.

Despite the new marketing partners, BioCryst has been unable to close any significant stockpiling contracts for peramivir outside the U.S. Some BioCryst bulls were hoping the company would announce today the approval of peramivir in Japan, however that doesn't appear to be happening quite yet. InterMune(ITMN Quote) said it was changing the way it doses its experimental hepatitis C drug RG7227 (formerly ITMN-191) to patients. Moving forward, InterMune will use a lower dose of RG7227 that is "boosted" with the addition of a drug known as ritonavir in order to make its effect last longer in patients' bloodstreams. As a result, InterMune said boosted RG7227 can be administered twice a daily or perhaps once a day. The company will be altering ongoing studies of RG7227 in hepatitis C to include the addition of the ritonavir boosting agent. Vivus(VVUS Quote) said its experimental erectile dysfunction drug works within 15 minutes of dosing, according to a new analysis if previously released results of a phase III study. Viropharma(VPHM Quote) said 2010 sales guidance for its hereditary angiodema drug Cinryze of between $145 million and $165 million. The company said it will be profitable in 2010 but would not offer detailed earnings guidance until later in the first quarter.
Meines Erachtens ist Vivus ein echt potentieller Highflyer für 2010. Erfolgreiche PIII Daten für einen Wirkstoff gegen Übergewicht -hmmm, wer will mehr. Wer sich letztes Jahr mal Human Genome Sciences angeschaut hat der weiss was ich meine..:-) In jedem Fall wirds spannend hier, seeeeeehr spamnend.
BOSTON (MarketWatch) -- Vivus Inc. /quotes/comstock/15*!vvus/quotes/nls/vvus (VVUS8.92, +0.52, +6.21%) said early Monday that the U.S. Food and Drug Administration has accepted its application to market its new anti-obesity drug Qnexa. The agency is expected to issue a decision on whether to approve the product by Oct. 28. Shares of Vivus were up over 4% at $8.76 in pre-market trading
15. Juli wird spannend, aber wie es asuschaut, steigt der Kurs vorher auch schon ganz ordentlich an, ich steht jetzt schon 110 % imPlus, vielleicht rette ich schon mla den Einsatz, denn wenn was schiefgeht hier, dann wissen wir ja auch alle wie das ausgeht.
ja hier ist erstaunlich wenig los, na ich bin auch im moment am überlegen ob ich generell momentan aussteig, und bei vivus ist es schwer.... jetzt kommt die entscheidende phase der aktie, und da ist das generelle marktumfeld net so wichtig allerdings bin ich ein gebranntes kind durch gpc biotech seinerzeit.
