No stock sums up biotech investing quite like Dendreon (NASDAQ: DNDN), the company behind a novel prostate cancer treatment called Provenge. In what amounts to a case study on unchecked optimism, Dendreon shares were still flying high just over a year ago on exuberant sales projections. Then things took a turn for the worse.
