    Do you think it will go up again today?

    Maybe this sucker is being bought in advance if it moves to the S&P.
    •Vertex Pharmaceuticals Larger Than S&P 500 Component Noble Corp

    It was beaten pretty good. Incivek declining sales and lowered estimation of stock price is already factored in.

    Up or down? Hump or die.

    Sentiment: Buy

    • I haven't looked much here lately. I thought VRTX was in the S&P index. It's big enough.

    • "True but the company was started many many years ago. Those who invested in vrtx at its inception, like yours truely, are holding the bag due to management's incompetency/mistakes/miscalculations. Investments elsewhere would have been much more productive."

      Look at a chart of the VRTX stock price since its inception and compare it to the Nasdaq. Nasdaq is up 513% while VRTX is up 1369%. Most people sitting on those kind of gains don't feel they are "holding the bag", unless you're just referring to your bag of cash...
