It would be unwise to pay any attention to the tomfoolery of those whose sole purpose is to make up erroneous headlines to lower a stock price so that they can swoop in and buy at the lowered value. Such individuals attempt to get rich by selling fear. Unfortunately for them they can never have as much wealth nor intelligence as those who purchase a stock for its actual merits and are smart enough to make the profits.
The truth of the matter is that it all started with this stupid guy who bought the rights to sell a pharmaceutical pill (stock Turing) originally priced $13.50 per pill and he wanted to sell it for $750+. Hilary Clinton got him to lower the price and it shook up the market. *****BUT***** it does not reflect all pharmaceutical companies.
Least of which a Billion Dollar company like Alnylam. Which has enough cash to continue to beat out all competitors and still go for years without needing to raise more funding.
Alnylam relies on vastly different technology and the potential for Alny's RNAi will wipe out the need for other pharmaceutical companies altogether.
