    More info coming Aug 1 as that's when Astellas will report. Should get a good idea of how sales are going at that time. I expect continued uptake and there fore uptick in the stock.

    Sentiment: Strong Buy

    Just looking over Astellas report. Sales of Xtandi were 23.4B Yen. WOW! Why do I say wow? A couple reasons:

    1. If you multiply that by 4 that gives you 93.6B yen. But Astellas had been providing guidance that F14 sales would be 82.6B yen. So, if they just stayed flat for the rest of the year you would be looking at a 13.3% increase over what they had been forecasting.

    2. If you convert the 23.4B yen to dollars that's $223.3M USD. In one quarter. In the last conference call MDVN said sales for Q1 were $172.3M and also forecast that for the year sales would be between $540 and $575M. But if I add the $223.3M from this current quarter to last quarters $172.3M I come up with $399.6M. They are only $175M away from the high end of their goal then?

    Either they really killed it this quarter or my calculation is off for some reason.

    Thoughtful commentary appreciated.
