Nice way to start the New Year!
I believe the above information is accurate, but as always please do your own due diligence.
Sentiment: Strong Buy
Looking at the IMS data for the same period, I think TRx is up about 7%, while NRx is up 14.4%. As we've seen with prior comparisons, the HA figures don't necessarily give us a good read on how the IMS numbers will come in, but given that this was a holiday-shortened week, I think the figures are encouraging. OFP has commented that he noticed a bump from the December to January numbers last year, but it is yet 2b seen if this trend will repeat this year.
A note about spooky math:
I believe my calculations are close, but sometimes my figures prove to be incorrect.
Thanks as always to SRK for his many valuable contributions to the board.
There was a jump of about 250 scripts after the holiday shortened Thanksgiving weekend, as patients "caught up" from the previous week.
In the week ending Jan 4, patients most likely also flocked in to get their scripts, but because that week was ALSO a holiday shortened week, AVNR will probably not get a jump as high as 250 scripts, which would be in line with your estimations.
