+ Watch RPTP
on My Watchlist
For most of 2013, Raptor defied the skeptics and more than doubled their share price after a post-PDUFA dip. Lately, however, the upward ascent has shown signs of strain with a crack all the way down to 12 after a peak of 15. The stock seems to be back in growth mode this week but I wonder if Gravity might soon exert its pull again. Regardless of whether or not Raptor succeeds in luring cystinosis patients away from Cystagon despite the steep price, the ability of the share price to move beyond recent highs depends on the outcome of the long-shot phase II/III trial of Procysbi for Huntington's, with topline data in the first quarter of 2014. I'm suspecting the stock will take an immediate 30-40% haircut once those topline data prove to be a severe disappointment.
Has a solid pipeline of products that should be advancing into phase 3 stage of FDA approval and beyond through the next 12 to 36 months. Most notable of all its products currently in phase 2 stage of development, is the drug Convivia. It is the only known drug currently in development and existence, that treats the "Asian Flush" symptoms associated with the consumption of alcohol by those who have the ALDH2 deficiency. There is a potentially huge market for this, as 40-50% of the East Asian populations suffers from this disorder alone. Chances are you know someone who suffers from this, evident by the appearence of red flush or blotchy areas to the face and neck area, and sometimes all over the body. Demand for this product could be very high as there are many medical(cancer risk) and social(public appearence) implications to having this disorder.
