On CAPS, 97% of the 891 members who have rated Rigel believe the stock will outperform the S&P 500 going forward.

Just this past Friday, one of those Fools, All-Star zzlangerhans, tapped Rigel as a particularly attractive bargain opportunity:

The street responded to news of mixed results of the OSKIRA-1 phase III trial of fostamatinib ... as though the trial was an unequivocal failure. In fact, the trial failed to show improvement over placebo in RA by radiographic criteria but did show stat sig improvement by clinical criteria. If this type of outcome holds through subsequent trials the company and partner AstraZeneca may submit an NDA on the basis that clinical improvement trumps radiographic improvement.

As of the end of 2012, Rigel has about [$300M] in liquid assets to support a market cap of [$392M] at [Friday's] close. That's a reasonable bet for a rebound, although my personal preference would have been to let the stock get beaten up further when OSKIRA-2 and OSKIRA-3 results are released later this quarter, and then hopefully mop up closer to cash.
