On CAPS, 40% of the 43 members who have rated Anacor believe the stock will underperform the S&P 500 going forward.

Earlier this morning, one of those Fools, All-Star zzlangerhans, succinctly summed up the Anacor bear case for our community:

As predicted, in March the stock rebounded from the weak phase III performance of tavaborole with positive results from dose-ranging phase II trial of AN2728 in atopic dermatitis. But [$220M] is simply too much for a phase II drug in the crowded indication of atopic dermatitis. Anacor will certainly raise big before getting close to topline data from a phase III trial of AN2728, and approval of Valeant's efinaconazole in May will provide another nail for tavaborole's coffin.
