Gentium: Buying Opportunity At A Lower Level Amid Correction

Gentium (GENT) is an Italian biotech company that provides unique treatment options to patients faced with rare diseases with high unmet medical needs. Gentium is an excellent growth play on its investigational drug Defibrotide. However, the stock appears reasonably valued after rising ~200% from its 52-week low at $6.96. I believe that the stock could correct ~30% from its recent high at $22.40. This would provide investors an excellent buying opportunity with a favorable risk-reward ratio.
