Acadia has now completely retraced last spring's stirrapulated price spike to 3 and may be headed closer to last fall's all-time low of 0.66. 36M in cash now backs a 51M market cap and quarterly burn is hanging around 5M as the clock ticks towards topline data for study 020 of pimavanserin in Parkinson's psychosis in mid-2012. I've faceplanted on many bottom-feeding moonshot picks over the last couple of years (see Hemispheryx, Cel-Sci, Rexahn, and more than a few others), so I wouldn't bet that this is the end of the drop for Acadia. But I do think this will be a stock to watch closely as phase III data approaches. As for the results? The prior failure of pimavanserin in two phase III trials for the same indication doesn't bode well.
