There are two issues here to consider. The first is will hospitals buy some to have on hand for use as needed. This answer is a resounding yes, just look at praxbind .There include a list of every hospital where it is available searchable by zip code, name, or address. The second is how much will be used. This is a harder question to answer but the number will expand over time. At first only emergency surgery, but then more elective indications and use will occur, and lastly more patients will switch from older anticoagulants to this class due to the reversibility .
Pradaxa now has a specific reversal agent that is widely available. In fact I just saw an add on tv that pushes pradaxa use based on this fact- i.e. A reversal agent is available and it's the only one with this advantage. The cost is $3500 a dose. I expect very similar from portola. At today's price per share its a buy!!
I was early with my buy now call. The stock gets cheaper every day due only to general market selling of everything. There is no company caused reason for the price to be discounted so much therefore This is the time to buy. I can't predict this is the cheapest it will be but in 12-18 months it will be much higher and maybe sooner. I loved it at $38 so this is a bargain. Maybe if you watch it you might catch the turn closer to the bottom but you might miss an explosive move up on the right news. Buy and hold when you can.
It's even cheaper today, I quess people are worried about what will be said tomorrow, with all the market weakness and a big run up since last year it's never bad to lock in some profits however in spite of the volume Itcould be somebody knows something as this is 3x normal volume I think it's another great entry point! It could pop 3-5 dollars up tomorrow but the big money will be made 12-18 months down the road. As for the price per dose I don't know what it's going to be but a wide guess is $2-3,000 per dose. Buy more!,
It may go lower due to general market weakness but as they say the baby was thrown out with the bath water! So if you wanted in, now is a great entry point, this will be much higher after major milestones occur over the next 12-18 months. You will be very happy with pps then as compared to now so BUY!!!!!
