On CAPS, 17% of the 1,623 members who have rated Dendreon believe the stock will underperform the S&P 500 going forward.
I can't find any fundamentals that would suggest Dendreon share price should increase from here. Although it's Provenge is a worthy achievement, as expected it couldn't productize it and it never got the buyout it sought. One trick pony with a drug that's expensive, difficult to manufacture and difficult to get doctors to prescribe. Burn rate continues with no end in sight.
