So AMGN misses earnings, fails a phase 3 safety study and barely goes down on either event. Biogen beats earnings, acquires a phase 3 start up and has dropped $45 in a month. Makes sense.
Would paying out a dividend help? I'd rather they acquire like they are doing, but the stock is complete garbage right now. It needs something to lift it.
There's many reason why BIIB is going down lately. Firstly as Morgan Stanley points it out there won't be buyouts, secondly and the most investors concerning about is a new MS drug that will eating away Biogen MS franchise and thirdly the Biotech sector cannot break out of the doldrums. But for Biogen the next earning report will give a clearer picture how much new drug takes its market share and how much royalty they get and their Spinraza drug sale progress. Biogen gave a great guidance for 2017 earnings which is more than $20 per share and they bested in the first quarter. A lot of Analysts still very bullish about Biogen but few are very skeptical. Next Earnings will clear this up. I think there are a lot of things going for Biogen in the long term (1 to 2 yrs) investors will be very well rewarded.

why it continue down, any good suggestion for what should I do, thanks
In all seriousness, where do you guys think the bottom is? Last couple of times it tanked, it went all the way to $225. Goes through all support levels like nobodies business. I think this has been down every day since earnings except maybe 3! Aside from the one day that it went up $4 on the purchase, the other 2 days were < $1 following long losing streaks.
So we roughly bounced off of 275 4 times in the past 2 yrs, we sliced through that no problem. Did a couple small bounces off 245... bounced off of 225 *hard* and ran up to 330 and in 1 month... then went back to tanking. This stock has had long periods of tanking... but there have always been bounces along the way. Never seen such a flat line down.

I'm beginning to understand why our grandparents stashed money under their mattresses!
pfe, you're close by. offer 325 and take these idiots out.
looking at the 1yr price trend, seems the support at 250 was expected yet the overall trend is in a tight channel downwards. Any ideas when this might stop? are there any potential catalysts before next year Alzheimer's ? ( itself a long shot) or is my beloved biib becoming a gild?
yeah,went from 251 to 260. I should have bailed.

Appeals court holds lower court's dismissal of investors suit against Biogen. A bit of good news is always welcome.
this POS better hold 250 or were in deep sheet.
Biogen didn't hold above $259 but that was largely market forces rather than the stock itself .. Technically and on daily frame, $255 is an important threshold to establish now to be followed by $260 but more critical is to hold above $268-270 price ..
The Money Flow index, crucial indicator, is showing "signs" that the worst is behind us and its well supported by both Wm%R and CCI .. MACD & Full STO still didn't confirm positive signals although seem close
On the daily frame, all key Tech. Indicators including CCI, Wm%R, RSI and both Fast & Slow Stochastic are giving entry point around current price +/- &3 for BIIB .. Yet the MFI & MACD are not there exactly yet although close .. unless something fundamental happens i think at or around $250 is excellent price
Why is BIIB dropping like its hot? I thought 250 was bottom?
almost 260. can't hold the gains
this,junk is dead
