Why Amarin Is Tanking After Hours

Amarin (NASDAQ: AMRN  ) is plunging more than 20% in after-hours trading, after disclosing that it will be hiring a sales force for its flagship drug Vascepa. Investors were hoping for a swift buyout, and tonight's late-breaking announcement may be a blow to that happening. Management insisted that all options are still on the table ahead of a potential NCE status update next week, but this is still widely seen as a blow to a buyout or partnership. Watch health-care analysts David Williamson and Max Macaluso discuss where this leaves Amarin investors in the following video.

Today's events are an easy reminder that the biotech space can make or break investors overnight, and while Amarin might not disappear into thin air, the success of its new triglyceride-lowering drug is key to the company's future success or failure. The company has huge potential, but don't invest a dollar before reading everything you need to know about Amarin.
