Just yesterday, All-Star zzlangerhans touched on Anacor's seemingly unsustainable valuation:

[T]avaborole is likely to be an also-ran to Valeant's efinaconazole which has a substantially higher cure rate in phase III trials. Tavabarole is likely to be approved, but revenues will almost certainly be disappointing. A similar fate may await atopic dermatitis drug AN2728, which is yet to begin phase III trials but was only modestly efficacious in phase II.

As always, when a stock runs like this and attracts pumpers and momo traders I have no idea where the upward trajectory will end. Good chance I go deep into the red here, but a better chance I come out green in the end.
