An extremely large combined dilutive and debt financing seems to have scared the pants off Exelixis traders and killed a burgeoning run-up into the cabozantinib PDUFA for medullary thyroid carcinoma in 11/29/12. The financing scares me too and I'm dubious about the long-term commercial prospects of cabozantinib, but the run-up has been very strong in the biopharma bull market of 2012 and I'll take my chances against the forces of dilution.
