    Doing the math for the math and/or integrity challenged

    A manufactured market cap of 2,650 million, trailing twelve month revenue (sales) of 7.72 million which netted 73 million in losses…and the basis for the astronomical price, a treatment (not cure) for a genetic high cholesterol disorder that effects one in a million that fewer than one in a thousand of those afflicted will be able to afford based upon the 300K annual price tag.

    Population
    United States 316,668,567 (July 2013 est.)
    European Union 503,890,016 (July 2013 est.)
    World 7,095,217,980 (July 2013 est.)

    One in a million afflicted means potential of 317 in USA, 504 in EU, or 7,095 prescriptions worldwide. How many of those do you think can afford ANNUAL 300K prescription?

    GDP per Capita
    United States $50,700 (2012 est.)
    European Union $35,100 (2012 est.)
    World $12,700 (2012 est.)

    Per IRS statistics, applying affordability, the income cutoff for the top 1% of people who filed income tax returns in 2009 was 344K (1.38 million people), being generous that means approximately 1 in 200 in the USA could if they chose afford the prescription....Worldwide I'd have to assume fewer than 1 in 1000 of those diagnosed will be able to afford the prescription.

    • You still ABSOLUTELY REFUSE to learn Arthur/Censored/AdamWang/Samsoreloser!

      Stop investing through the rear view mirror. The past does not equal the future (except insofar as your inability to learn).

      You STILL reference that outdated probability-statistic of 1 in a million instead of the 15,000 ACTUAL CASES DIAGNOSED. It's the difference between a theoretical model and reality.

        i can only speak for myself yasser (and that would be censored53 before yahoos disabled it), and i'm just the messeger, most every recent article and/or propaganda piece on the subject uses the same estimate, one in a million, few if any address how many of those will be able to afford it, the stock would crash if they did. i can post another excerpt from one of the more recent articles, i saw em using the estimate just the other day...would you like me to post it, or would that burst your bs bubble.
