  • Exelixis Upgraded By Piper Jaffray 2 comments
    Apr 4, 2014 12:27 PM | about stocks: EXEL

    Exelixis (NASDAQ:EXEL) received an upgrade from Piper Jaffray this morning to buy with a price target of $11. The firm believes that the market has "washed out" it's lead drug in phase 3 development for prostate cancer. As I recently blogged, I believe in Exelixis' long term potential as they have a number of other shots on goal including phase 3 trials in HCC and RCC with the same compound as well as a phase 3 compound partnered with Roche in Melanoma which will report results later this year.

    Disclosure: I am long EXEL.

    Author’s reply » Hi sharkboy. The analyst used this term and interpret it by meaning that the market has removed the chances of a positive prostate result from the COMET trial. Thank you for the questions, Shane
