    As long as these short articles continue investors will have fear

    It's going to put a top for awhile until new data comes out by SRPT. These articles right or wrong will scare off longs. Sad but true. Manipulation on both sides.

    • I think it's fair to say that there was some "irrational exuberance" in the entire biotech sector. It was a developing bubble that's now correcting. Not as bad as 1999-2000, but painful for those who came late to the zenith. "Risk off" for professional money managers has been happening now for a number of weeks, and it may over-correct on the downside. Biotech is now in a "show me the $$" mode; think REGN.

      In the biotech sector, even if initial data looks promising, what happened to ARIA is stark reminder of how things can go bad with drugs in Ph 3. Not saying this is the fate of SRPT, but the market is clearly not taking chances in this speculative arena. I think value will out with SRPT, it's just going to take longer b/c the FDA must maintain scientific scrutiny w/o favoritism towards drugs that appear to be safe. If you can afford to wait, this storm will pass, IMHO.
