  • Buying ViroPharma Ahead of June 3rd FDA Decision [View article]
    You could be right, I have generic Vancocin priced in as a given, its been off patent for years. Now look at whats happening to ARCA Bioscience today (ABIO), down almost 50 percent on news of a CR letter from the FDA for their heart drug, it shows the risk of getting a CR letter for Cinryze. I'm long VPHM, I say 10 on FDA approval of Cinryze in acute HAE.

  • Q1 2009 Biotech Earnings Roundup: The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly [View article]
    When a large cap biotech like Celgene gaps down 7.00 and closes down 5.93, thats a disaster. If you didn't own it, maybe its a buying oppurtunity, but if you owned it, its a disaster in my opinion.

    Most reasonable people would consider a 68 percent haircut in one day a failure.
