How Far Can Sarepta Run?

Today, Fool.com health-care analysts David Williamson and Brenton Flynn look at Sarepta's nearly 200% share-price jump recently. 

The company had some very favorable results with its revolutionary cystic fibrosis drug, and though it's only positioned to capture a small slice of the market currently, the potential to develop similar drugs that would target a larger patient population is enormous. The company could go even higher from here without such developments as well, as both Brenton and David see it as a reasonable buyout candidate. Even after the pop, it may still have room to run.

    It was a very exciting day for me, a stockholder. However, the drug in question is for a rare form of Muscular Dystrophy. Maybe there is another study for Cystic Fibrosis? In any case, to help these children is awesome and could lead to progress with MS.
