Your statement sums up all the recent stock price action in VRTX, VRUS, and IHBX. It represents the most ignorant, irresponsible way of investing. Do not let data and facts get in the way of a great story. Shoot now and ask questions later. A bird in the hand is not worth anything if there might be a better bird in the bush. Obviously, you have been "...getting in (to VRUS) before events fully develop". For me, I will "watch from the sidelines" when it comes to investing in VRUS. I cannot believe the endless stream of BS out of this company with very little to back it up. They sure have convinced you. I am going to take the other side of this bet and stick with Vertex.
