Although we don't believe in timing the market or panicking over market movements, we do like to keep an eye on big changes -- just in case they're material to our investing thesis.
What: Shares of Amylin Pharmaceuticals
So what: The once-weekly Bydureon injection, which Amylin is co-developing with Alkermes
Now what: Amylin remains far too speculative for most investors. While Bydureon could certainly still get approved, there now seems to be a lot of concern on Wall Street about how it could compete. Amylin has posted less-than-stellar sales over the past few years, and with Bydureon's prospects not shining as brightly as they once did, there's very little reason to get involved.
