Vivus (VVUS +10.2%) soars after Bloomberg Industries claims the prescription insurer payment rate for the company's Qsymia obesity drug rose 500 bps to 36% in its second week of availability. Vivus had previously suggested the initial coverage rate would be minimal. Also, Vivus has added Express Scripts to Qsymia's home delivery pharmacy network.

    VVUS continues to be modest on their projections for marketing progress. But in actuality, they are in full production mode to meet demand. The only problem to develop would be a lack of supply to satisfy the demand. They should then contract out to other manufacturers the billions of pills that will eventually be sold!
