  • CytRx Corp. (CYTR) Price Rally, Potential Mirrors Pharmacyclics (PCYC) Performance 0 comments
    Dec 13, 2013 2:07 PM | about stocks: CYTR

    It's quite a catching opener, especially if you're an investor with an interest in the biotech sector. It's also a bold statement, though one backed by weighty evidence. In an article published today, Wall Street Cheat Sheet contributor James Ratz begins with:

    "The biggest story this week in biotechnology has been the explosion seen in shares of CytRx Corporation (NASDAQ:CYTR). In fact, the recent move catapults CytRx to one of the top performing biotechnology stocks of 2013, and what's really interesting is that based on the recent news, CytRx may be on the verge of altering the cancer landscape …"

    Comparing CytRx' rally to a previous one stunted by Pharmacyclics (NASDAQ:PCYC), Ratz combs through the reasons both companies' ability to apply treatment to several diseases.

    CytRx is developing aldoxorubicin as a potential alternative to the commonly used chemotherapeutic agent doxorubicin. Aldoxorubicin's primary application is for soft tissue sarcoma, followed by a variety of other cancers including glioblastoma multiforme and Kaposi's sarcoma.

    The company recently released the results of its ongoing phase 2b clinical trial in which aldoxorubicin met primary and secondary endpoints, boasting 80-100 percent superiority over doxorubicin in progression-free survival (NYSE:PFS).

    Adding to the obvious potential of these results, Ratz suggests that CytRx could be the "next Pharmacyclics" for three primary reasons:

    •Platform applicable to multiple diseases

    •"Smart Money" purchasing shares

    •Sudden share price explosion

    The article summarizes Pharmacyclics' developments and its stock's tremendous bull run started in 2011, as well as provides supporting evidence for Ratz's assessment before concluding that:

    "The similarities between CytRx and Pharmacyclics are hard to ignore. A world class platform that has the potential to cure millions and generate billions, a significant institutional interest, and a rapid share price explosion, all lend credence to the theory that CytRx may soon follow a similar path to Pharmacyclics. Dr. Gene Salkind and the other institutions on board are likely adding to their already massive holdings as I write this article, hoping that this run is just getting started."
