TheStreet.com: "There still seems to be a lot of hope built into the stock price. As Morgan Stanley analyst Stephen Herr wrote this week, "if the patent life is not extended, this stock looks broadly overvalued."

I've watched Medicines' ascent from the sidelines but after reviewing the stock again this week I've decided to follow the story more closely with a green thumb. Angiomax revenues have remained solid, although I'm concerned regarding ongoing litigation with generic manufacturers. Regardless, the drug will only maintain exclusivity through 2019 due to agreements with Teva and Fresenius. However, the company has now produced a second act for the near term in the form of cangrelor, which recently showed strong superiority to Plavix in the CHAMPION PHOENIX trial. The company is also broadening their approach by inlicensing ALN-PCS RNAi from Alnylam and purchasing Incline Therapeutics and their Ionsys pain platform. I'm more skeptical about oritavancin, an antibiotic whose prospects failed to keep developer Targanta from being absorbed for a pittance. Nevertheless, positive phase III data from the SOLO-2 trial could give the stock a boost in mid 2013.
