Teva faces generic Copaxone a year early

  • Shares of Teva Pharmaceutical (TEVA -2.2%) are lower after the U.S. Court of Appeals invalidates a 2015 Copaxone patent.
  • The company expects the FDA to approve a longer-acting version of the drug early next year and had planned to spend 2014 converting patients to the new dosage. With generic competition now possible in less than a year, TEVA's original plan is now "de facto impossible," according to one hedge fund manager quoted by Bloomberg.

    Really sick of reading about the mistakes, miscalculations, and pie-in-the-sky "experts'" predictions for this stock. I'm going to greener pastures where management has at least half a brain. Good luck to all.

    Any credence to Teva saying it is a very complex molecule and difficult to copy copoxone, generic company will have to do clinical
    trial to get FDA approval ?
