    • the news that the FDA pretended a black box should be largely anticipated. Articles, even old of two years as published in biotechinvest, discussed that hypothesis. Hence in my opinion, the news that the launch of the staccato etc. will be at the beginning of the 3rdQ 2013 had a temporary negative impact. Look at the huge call next month. The stock is now both oversold and undervalued. I guess that a spike in the area 6.5-7$ is still largely possible. The company is small. Thus expert market makers were ready to such 6 months to get ready to a commercialization. Big investors did not sell! Only haste suggest to sell today, without any logical consideration to any industrial plan of a small company

      Sentiment: Hold

    • I have a bunch of shares at $5.5 and I'm kinda in the same boat. It sucks that I'm gonna have to bail out on alxa. I have been in love with alxa since feb of this year.... so disappointing that the approval of adasuve has been a bit depressing. I hope it has a good spike to help out everyone that banked on it doing well. needless to say, it's been an "emotional" roller coaster for me, and i'll be glad when Monday is over whether it's a win/lose/draw. Good luck and merry christmas to all. Just remember that money is not everything and that THINGS COULD ALWAYS BE WORSE!

    • The news was announced before market close and the stock was halted. It was then opened after hours on a friday before Christmas weekend. most people went home or had to start running errands. and for the people that so call think the the price built in???? really??? there effing idiots your talking about a company that's adding 200 million plus in sells next year and setting themselves up for a buy out. some of these idiots are annoying and need to find companies that they believe in and go long. Shorts remind me of the kid in the corner of the class room that no body cares to talk too damn emos.

      Sentiment: Buy

    • Other factors include expiration of options, uncertainty about what the information means, after market thinner trading. If this drug was supposed to be marketed to the masses--like a drug for indigestion say, then the label prohibitions would be concerning to me. But as it stands this medicine was always for mostly clinical/hospital use and the delivery mechanism as much as the drug is being tested. Will be dynamic day tomorrow, but wouldn't count this drug/company out anytime soon.

      Sentiment: Hold

    • Let me try to answer this:
      1. The approval is widely anticipated even by bears. So the approval is priced in.
      2. The approval came with a very strict REMS and label. This almost ensures Adasuve will not sell successfully. Go read the REMS and label and see if you can understand that.
      3. Run-ups traders exit their position.

      Now tomorrow is a short trading day. Usually, a short trading day is prone to high volatility. So if ALXA spikes up towards Friday's closing of $5.79, you should get out.
